Ali, Ayo Onatade and myself went to the fair last year and had a good time. Even getting to pose with The Hoff (well, I pushed my way into the background in the photo, that's my claim to fame).

It’s a great place to meet everyone in the industry, knock back a couple of beers and generally shoot the breeze with others who are as enthusiastic as we are. Check out the report from 2006. If you get the chance, go along. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Plus there are plenty of freebies to be had.
