As far as I can tell, nothing particularly interesting is happening at CES. Apple has stolen much of the CE industry's thunder, and does not participate, saving its 'breathtaking' announcements for its own party the following week. Most of the GPS companies are missing--supposedly the next big thing. Retailers like Best Buy do not appear to be attending.
But, how the event is being covered IS interesting. Bloggers have surpased the traditional media in terms of importance and credibility. There is a 24-7 BlogHaus at the posh Bellagio, to serve and care for bloggers. The "blogger" resource area at the convention center is larger than the traditional press room. And, we bloggers have this cool party (link above) at the Atomic Test Museum. I really look forward to wearing my blogger hat and promoting the role of blogging as a new, important form of professional communication, and I certainly look forward to all the support I will get.
