New York Times columnist and Mac pundit David Pogue is headlining this weekend’s Discovery Museum and Planetarium Consumer Technology Fair, happening at the Discovery Museum and Planetarium in Bridgeport, Conn. The event runs from September 23 – 25, 2005 and has been created to appeal to “gadget geeks” and the “digitally impaired” alike.
The three-day event kicks off on Friday with a Preview Party and the Technology Gala and Cocktail Party, a US$100 per guest fund raiser with Pogue as the Master of Ceremonies. The gala features “enough fun electronic equipment to keep you mesmerized for hours,” and if that wasn’t enough, a silent auction will also take place.
The museum is open on Saturday from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. During those times guests can view on-site electronics demonstrations, learning centers for kids and teachers, and free seminars run by Pogue. The latest products from Apple, Canon, Panasonic and Sony will be featured. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8.50 for children; museum members get a 50 percent discount.
