Great picture, which could have been taken hours earlier. Is someone going to address the persistent rumor that this show was organized under pressure from Scala in order to boost attendance at their own user group meeting? DSE East was an unnecessary and expensive travesty. At best, a show of greed and arrogance by Exponation. At worst, a backdoor deal with a sponsor to soak other vendors and the few potential customers who showed up.
