ICE 2012


Recommended Posts

Your Display!

A suggestion made a couple of years ago by an attendee was to submit a photo(s) or short video of your display since many of us never get the opportunity to see others during the busy holiday season.

We would like to see if while you are on the website registering, if you would please click on the "contact us" page and submit yours to us so we can put them on display at the event itself!

Not only is it a great way to share, but it can be very helpful for getting ideas and discussion.

We WILL be having the "White Elephant" gift exchange at ICE this year.
If you have never been part of one, the concept is simple and it ends up being quite fun!

1. Decide if you want to take part... it is totally voluntary, so there is no pressure to participate.

2. Look through your "inventory" and pick something (or things) that you feel like you will not use yourself, but someone else may cherish. Christmas or decorating related is suggested of course...

3. "But Bob, how much should the gift be worth?"
The question always comes up, and there is no right or wrong answer in my book.
It isn't about $$... it is about the fun (and knowing that you might even get something you would really enjoy as well!)

4. Wrap it up as best you you can to conceal the contents. Newspaper, duct tape, tarps, hotel towels, USPS boxes (used of course), gift wrap, pillow cases, Light-O-Rama enclosures, etc. are perfectly acceptable wrapping methods.
Do NOT put your name on it. If you think it is needed you may put a suggestion on it... like: "For a lady" or "External use only"... to either help get it to someone who might enjoy it, or to REALLY have fun when the recipient opens it. :cool:

The concept is for people to NOT know what they are selecting, or who it is from. (You can tell afterwords...if you want)

5. If you bring a gift, you will get a gift...

6. "Stealing" is allowed AND encouraged...
2 steals and a gift is dead. No one can steal it after that... if it sounds confusing, we will explain it in more detail at the event... Trust me it can get fun!

One of the sessions this year will be taking some of your skills and how to use them to do a great Halloween display...
What a better excuse to get some of your wiring done early?

Moderated Discussion groups... bring your questions AND your answers this year!

It is time to not only learn from the person with the PowerPoint and the microphone, but from each other as well. The only silly question is the one you don't ask...

Art vs. Technology in the display
Using Pixels
Halloween... getting started early
Using LOR hardware
Using LOR software

PLUS.... open discussions all day long on everything from wireframes to FM transmitters and everything in between!
