O'Reilly Media has a full slate of in-booth tech talks and plenty of Mac and digital media titles to browse. Plus we have goodies, too! If you buy two or more titles at the booth, you get your choice of a canvas book bag or an O'Reilly T-shirt (while supplies last). And even if you're not in a buying mood, you can enter a drawing with the opportunity to win a 30GB iPod Fifth Generation (video model).

In addition to our in-booth speaking schedule, we have more fun stuff going on. For example, we'll have life-sized cardboard cutouts of David Pogue and Deke McClelland that you can pose with for digicam snapshots. They'll both be there in person too (see speaker schedule). We'll also have a Joy of Tech book signing on Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. Plus, don't forget about our iPod video drawing.
