Geek Cruises Presents PC Paradise: PC World Hits the High Seas
We're a magazine and a Web site. We've done books, TV, radio, and trade shows. But adventuresome, educational travel? That's a new one for PC World.
Enter PC Paradise, a cruise we're co-sponsoring from February 3 through 10, 2007. Produced by our friends at Geek Cruises--who have set sail with our sister publication Macworld on multiple popular Mac Mania voyages--the excursion will head to the eastern Caribbean, including Grand Turk in Turks and Caicos Islands; Tortola; St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands; and Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas.
As the "Geek" in Geek Cruises indicates, this trip won't just be about sea life and beautiful ports of call. When on board, technology-loving cruisers will get the chance to hang with kindred spirits and choose from hours of instruction on PC topics. A few examples of the seminars that are planned:
- Who Needs Windows Vista?
- The Undocumented Vista
- Introduction to Office 2007
- Linux for Windows Users
- Extreme Googling
- Best Freebies of 2007
- Windows Gems
Whom might you meet onboard? Well, I plan to be there as a seminar leader; so do the New York Times' David Pogue, Leo Laporte of TechTV and This Week in Technology, and graphics guru Deke McClelland, among others.
