As not to leave everyone wondering about my trade-show quote. After 20
years of attending various trade-shows and having seen every possible
partnership/deal/product/what-ever pitched to me in the space of 2-3 days,
I at one point many years ago made the statement "It seems everybody has a
big (insert Freudian measure of worth here) at a trade-show."

It was probably on the third day of a some random show in need of sleep
and a meal where I don't have to stand to eat.
