I've been going to ESC every year since 2007 using a Cheapskate Pass.  I'm quasi-local, so I usually only do a single day.  This year ESC day is Wednesday so I can hear Bunnie Huang and smell Max's bacon-and-beer session.

One of the advantages of the Cheapskate Pass is that figuring out what sessions to attend is pretty quick.  But this year they're giving me a one-class pass!  Now I have to look through all those other sessions.  Riches beyond the wildest dreams of avarice!

If I make it to ESC/EE Live!!!!!, I will be wearing my very colorful QC Optics Hawaiian hat, which makes those Atmel hats look monochromatic.


BTW, the best swag I remember hearing about was Razor scooters, given away at Semicon West around the year 2000 (just before the dot-bomb crash).

Have you packed your Hawaiian shirt yet?

Even if you don't want to wear a Hawaiian shirt all day, hopefully you'll be sporting one at the main conference party on Tuesday April 1 between 4:00pm and 5:00pm on the main exhibit floor...
