Just got back from Computex 2010, in Taipei, Taiwan. I'm a little disappointed in myself for being a terrible tourist. I didn't do much other than travel back and forth from the show to my hotel. And write, of course. This sterile work area was my home for most of the week The one night I managed to have dinner out on the town it was at 168 Prime Steakhouse. The meal was fantastic, but honestly, steak in Taipei? I should have gotten out more. Even the most random experience, a late night ride on a karaoke bus filled with drunken Australians singing Bohemian Rhapsody, wasn't quite authentic. No, all I did was work.
Although, to be honest, that was kind of fun.too. Pictures, videos, and words below.
