The obvious answer is yes. But, the real thrill about tech gadgets is the fun. The coverage of electronic shows and sports has been both substantive, and an enjoyment. I’ve met people from around the globe and nationally, from inventors, ceos, engineers, analyst, consultants, marketing reps, helpers, coaches, players, cheerleaders, administrators, and a list too long to name; not to mention, fellow members of the press. I remain impressed with those who truly are so broad minded, forward thinkers, respectful, unconcerned – as a criteria of interacting - with the car you drive, your personal food diet, your career direction, your personal background, and so on; other than for sharing time in the moment to building a network, working to further the business interest at hand, looking for common ground or means to learn of new things, etc., presuming a context of legitimacy and positivity.
The core premise of technology shows, as with sports, is always related to economics. And, most are couched in socializing with entertainment. As you might notice, my media participation is laced within a niche, identifying some economic component, while attaching to the hip - that social aspect. Let me note, I understand that some people I’ve crossed paths of are pro educational advocates at varying levels, mainly retail/sales-folks, strongly religious minded, or, serious health/entertainment promoters, etc.; in accordance, its okay for all kinds to engage – i.e. a learning curve revolving around substantive methods in the moment at hand. Of course, among a multitude of attendees, we each illuminate differing missions, short to long-term. My reasoning is clearly about sourcing out economic ramifications, whether local to global, on technology or sporting matters; offering that to an audience around the world; something not to be doubted.
Yet, I don’t confuse business aims to a point of voiding fun from the equation or from life; nor stepping to impose objectives or personal beliefs on others. Furthermore, I only have admiration for those who sincerely, inclusive of their viewing others in the same way, are about positivity and legitimacy; focused at growing personally and thru work, however defined by that p&l; this notation - couches itself in a framework - regardless of someone’s race/culture, geographic, chosen/resulted field of work, enjoyments. beliefs, or level, in whatever organization, running ranges top, middle, or bottom; in essence, in mutual accord, it’s not to mandate a walk of life on others, nor to undermine others in their desired pursuits. And, to speak in tech ease, relaying a concerning plausibility: whether we live 10 feet to 10 thousand miles apart, a vast majority would likely hope none of us wants to evade private moments in another s home, phone, email, or computer; though people exist of inappropriate perspectives and practices.
The fun part in coverage is meeting people and the broad exposure to new things; the best is building lasting relationships, whether purely business or friends or both, while mutually learning from each other. The pleasure of immersing into technology is doing something that truly fits into my personal interests, i.e. the economic restructuring taking place in society. In simplicity, reviewing tech gadgets constantly reminds me of consumer reactions and the expansive intended usage. Nonetheless, there must be a merging value to all involved. Yet, the framework of innovation is much more evolving. The opportunity to communicate with 1) analyst on broader strokes unraveling; 2) hearing directly from those at the forefront of upcoming products and services; 3) casual discussions with other media to engineers to PR folks to consumers, etc on shared experiences/perceptions; and the list goes on. Remember, in all the underlying seriousness, the economics is not be ignored, or the permissible fun.
