Intel Developer Forum Spring 2004: first look

IDF Spring 2004, which opens in San Francisco on February, 17 and lasts till 19, is one of the most anticipated events of the year. IDF will also be held in Tokyo, Taibei, Beijing and Barselona during March-April, 2004. IDF has been setting the trends for the next months for several years now, and this one is not going to be an exception.

Our readers will surely be glad to find out that Alexander Vorobiev, representative of iXBT.com, has already arrived in San Francisco and is having a rest after the 20-hour flight and getting ready for the grand opening tomorrow. As there is nothing to report from IDF yet we decided to publish a couple of entertaining photos from Alexander’s trip log.

Here’s the great NY smog.
