The BREW Developers Conference, San Diego, California - 2nd June 2005

Nosher and Nick are in San Diego to help out on one of Qualcomm's stands at its annual developer conference. This year's gig is at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, on the waterfront in San Diego, and has around 2,500 attendants. Nick and Nosher are charged with talking to the masses about stuff for about nine hours non-stop on the bizarrely thick shag-pile carpet that the stand is built on. There's also a half-hour to catch some of the keynote speeches, where Peggy Johnson talks about our stuff, and the CEO-elect of Qualcomm abseils down on to the stage. After the first day, there's an event down at the Emacadero, a park which has been turned into some sort of carnival for the night with free bars and food everywhere
