Shows have a life cycle and Linux World lived a long time by comparison
although CES has gone on forever and Comdex (AKA how many ways can you
package Wintel junk) had a long life.
Shows arise with new technology/market.
1-3 Gosh we're real! Isn't this fun? Exiting/interesting presentations.
3-5 Let's make a deal (swap kitties for puppies) and what is the competition
doing? Interesting vendor presentaions. Some exciting product
>5 Let's sell to IT. Some big companies cancel Mo better of the same
5-8 RIP Why are we spending all this money? Where are the buyers?
Linux/UNIX technology isn't exactly new and it's iimpossible to sell enough
at a show to cover expenses.
Trade rags around technology have a similar life cycle.
