This weekend I am travelling up to Hannover to visit the CeBIT - the biggest technology show in the world. Despite the couple of open source conferences I've been to in the past months (OSCMS and FOSDEM), I've not been to a technology expo for a long time. The last one I went to must have been over ten years ago, when I managed to convince my parents to take me to a MacExpo when we were visiting London at one point.

I'm really looking forward to seeing all the new gadgets - and hoping I don't come back having bought anything I don't need. What I'm not looking forward to is the seven hour train ride through the night to get there, leaving here (Stuttgart) at 3am.
