    ThinkSecret posts a followup article indicating that MacWorld New York will undergo a name change to accompany its format change:

    strange indeed, I hoped it wouldn't change but I guess it was inevitable...

    Moving back to Boston destroyed summer MW. I wish they'd pull their contract and go back to NY, but it's not gonna happen. Then again, the first MW I ever went to was in Boston. Yet again, that was the weakest MW I've been to.

    It's about damned time MW comes BACK to Boston... I'll be very glad when it finally returns in 2004 since I will be able to [easily] go there.

    I hate NYC, plain and simple. There is nothing there to get me to return and plenty of things to keep me away. Just one thing is the cost of decent hotel rooms there. When I went to MWNY in 2001 the room alone cost ~$500 for just two nights. :eek:

    I MIGHT travel to SF for the next MW, provided it's there. Then again, I might just save the expense and pick up another Mac.

    As for everyone B&M'ng over MW leaving NY... DEAL WITH IT! Just as we had to "deal with it" when it left Boston for NY. Over the past few years attenance at MWNY has been declining. Not only have there been less vendors each year, but less people are going as well.

    Very interesting - although I don't think its going to be able to generate the excitement of a MacWorld....

    And by calling it Create, well, that opens it up to the PC world as well, now doesn't it? So we'll most likely be seeing all sorts of new things and not just for macs.

    I think it is a good move actually, by shifting the focus to Designers apple may be able to keep or peak a new interest in the field, a field that is undeniably the biggest percentage of mac users. I doubt PC's will seep into the show, its still a mac show just now a mac show focused on designers right?

    This is due to the major drop in spending in the field, not due to it being NYC. Boston will be the same. Nearly all companies there are based in California, lugging all that equiptment will be just as difficult in Boston as it is in NYC.

    I personally like NYC, as I have no idea what I would do in Boston during slow times at the show or at nights. NYC there is thousands of things to do.
