Could someone please direct me to the weekend? I seem to have gotten lost at Thursday.
The Small Business Expo in New York touts itself as a pivotal event for all you CEO types, offering priceless networking opportunities alongside a unique tradeshow floor.
I haven’t the foggiest what The NBM Show‘s titular acronym stands for, but I can tell you that the event is a business tradeshow that presents the latest in digital printing, signage, apparel decoration, personalization, promotional products and the like.

SANS Security West helps you folks that are sans-security become secure in your security; this event offers education and training for those who need a little help in the invisible world of cyber protection.
The EASDP Forum is a place for publishers to connect, engage and discuss technologies, problems and solutions facing their industry today. It’s taking place in Brussels and hosted by the European Association of Direct Publishers.

Spend a day in seclusion and you may never catch up to the world again. I’m just hearing about these scientists that have been able to create a synthetic leaf which may be able to generate electricity in the form of hydrogen. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Consider 3D printing, Brain-Computer-Interfaces, and 3D printed bikinis! If you’re ready, take a gander at Google’s next mind-blowing project, which involves using a billion dollar ghost town in New Mexico to develop the fully automated lifestyle of the future. Are you frightened or excited? I’m not sure either but I think I just peed a little.
It’s comforting to hear that there are other geeks out there – enough even to make it possible for business like these to be profitable. I wouldn’t mind trying my hand at a zombie mall or seeing how I pass as a spy…
