Printing tickets

Here’s another recent technological innovation I really dig: printing out tickets for a movie or show from your own computer. has begun offering e-tickets for various events. You buy your ticket online and then print out the ticket with a unique barcode. Even better, they drop the handling charge if you print your own ticket!

The more commonplace this becomes, the better — I’m all for anything that eliminates surcharges (especially with rip-off artists like TicketMaster monopolizing the ticket industry). Has anyone actually had a chance to try this out? From what I understand, it’s only available in Seattle, currently. -ram
