The fact that you've done it forever doesn't mean you need to keep doing it.


Women in the industry (few as they may) don't need to feel uncomforteble reading your paper, feeling that you make it a sport illustrate calendar

This is where you've degraded to? posting pictures of booth babes?


What's going to be next, taking pictures of "wireless devices" on the beach used by girls in bekini?


I've expected you to a bit more proffesional

Galileo -- I appreciate where you're coming from with this, I really do.  But we've been posting these kinds of show photos for years. We "degraded" pretty much the day they gave us digital cameras.

Point taken. Thanks for bringing this up (and I do mean that).


One factor here is that this is what some of these shows *look* like -- in doing a photo report, it'd be unrepresentative to avoid the booth models. (fwiw, E3 was 100 times worse, to the point where it felt uncomfortable.)


I'd honestly be interested in hearing other people's opinions on this.

I know, I'm going to shows, and seen many of those (not to talk about cable content related shows with the like of Playboy etc). I also know that it is a men world. But would want to change it, if not for me then to my daughter.


And it is one step at a time.


And yes, it would be nice to see what other readers may think
