24th annual AVN awards in Vegas

While the geeks were busy with Tech Week (Macworld in SF and CES in Las Vegas), the adult film industry was having its own annual Entertainment Expo also in LV, at the Sands. And tonight the 24th Adult Video News awards are being held at Mandalay Bay.

Now don't look askance at this entertainment industry. They've always been the early adopters of new film technology. Before the mainstream studios committed themselves to 8mm films, VCRs, streaming video and clips for mobile phones, the adult industry tested those stuff out first. And that's why now everyone, inc. the geeks and their sales people, is waiting to see w/c format for high-definition DVDs we'll be watching skin flicks on — Blu-ray or HD-DVD?

Jessica Drake hosts the awards show. Jenna Jameson, Dave Navarro and Carrot Top are scheduled to appear as well. Needless to say, you must be 18 or older to attend. Tickets: $110 - $240
