Come on! Who *wouldn't* want to bring their laptop to a public event? I
mean, I'm sure no one would get it stolen or anything.

I see small digital cameras that take 10 second video segments and email
them home to a broadcast system that immediately plays them on a web site or
other feed. And only about a 20 second delay!!! Hmmmmm...

Seriously, though, I go to events like these to get *away* from the Internet
and computers and that sort of thing. Knowuddimean?
