This is a week that I normally commune with geeks, bloggers and amateurs de toute technologique at the ABA's TechShow in Chicago.
This year, it's being chaired by Toronto's own Dan Pinnington, who has become the fourth Canadian
I started going in 1986, which was before the Flood in technology terms, visiting the extraordinary Infomart in Dallas, which looked like a capsule from the future.
But this year, I'm following the adventure through the blogosphere
If you're a thirsty blogger (pleonastic I would have thought) and in the Windy City, the Bloggers' Pub Crawl starts soon.
And of course our own Dominic Jaar is there in person.
