Live – from New York City!

Greetings from New York City! I’m here for four days the InterOp Expo featuring the Web 2.0 and Mobile Comms shows.

The Expo started yesterday afternoon, which gave me the morning to take a stroll around New York and in particular, Central Park, one of my favourite places to visit. Such a beautiful location, lovely and quiet and yet very busy with hundreds of Cyclists, Runners and walkers, and all in the centre of one of the busiest Cities in the world. For instance, standing in the centre of the "Sheep Meadow" – you can see the nearby Skyscrapers surrounding the park!

As well as the busiest, NYC is also one of the craziest Cities I’ve ever visited. I’ve been here before, but I still freak out at how fast everyone drives with apparent abandon for life or limb, how people walk in the roads amongst the insane traffic without getting hurt, how any New York driver still has a working car-horn after they abuse them so often, and how yesterday – within five minutes of sitting down to eat lunch in the street – I’d spotted a Naked Cowboy strumming a Guitar, a Ventriloquist Act abusing passers by, and a fully suited and booted businessman unfurl a push-Scooter and then trundle off down the road to his next meeting like a child heading to school. Major nuttiness!

Oh, and there’s the food – the diet will have to wait another week I’m afraid, because being surrounded by Hot-Dogs, Deluxe Cheeseburgers, an abundance of Pasta Dishes, breakfasts that are big enough to feed three (but still consumed by one…) and my favourite, Cheesecake, any chance of burning off some fat based on the miles I’ve walked as a tourist are long gone.

Full report from the heaving InterOp Expo later – I’m off to find a three course breakfast.
