I totally got lost in Akihabara district, the 'Electric Light  
District'- if one wanted to build a robot army anywhere, it would be  
right here-
I SERIOUSLY wish we had something like this in NYC- it's like if  
times square was turned into a Mouser electronics catalog everything  
from weird network embedded components, cellphone charms, to EVERY  
solderable component imaginable, mad computer scientist action, to  
heavy servers, to vaccum tubes (for the uber-perverted), to anime  
game stuff, manga madness and video games, to whatever computing.   
It's totally nuts.  Had to take a nap after that experience.  Like  
for example, you can buy solderable USB plugs just about on any  
corner in Akihabara...

Have pics- will figure out what to do to post them...

(sidenote- the Con is AMAZING... More on that later)
