If you want a very entertaining read from the desktop of a publicly traded CEO, stop by Alan Meckler’s blog.
It is amazing. You get to hear him bash COMDEX on an almost daily basis while trying to rationalize what went wrong with his own show in Vegas (the airport in Vegas, IT people being too busy, etc.).
I’m friendly with Meckler, we go to lunch once a quarter or so, and I respect what he has done. The blog is just brutal honesty and who knows some day maybe every public CEO will have onebut I doubt it.
