In case it wasn’t clear from the posts in which I complained about waiting for a cab and showed a picture of Doritos in a bowl, I had a great time in Vegas this last weekend (here are the pictures to prove it). I want to thank the kind people at the Digital Freedom Campaign for having me out to play and speak – they’re a good group of dedicated people, and they’re on the right side, so it’s a pleasure to be involved with them. Plus, I was honored to share this panel with Mark Hosler from the heroic, IP-stealing group of ne’er-do-wells known as Negativland, the groovy, angel-voiced internet superstar Samantha Murphy, the paradigm-smashing Terry McBride of Nettwerk Music Group, and of course the simply fabulous and impossibly beehived Lady Miss Kier of Deee-Lite. Not to name drop or anything.
If you’re looking for a pretty good description of CES, I can say that this Gizmodo post pretty much sums up how you feel after the first 15 minutes of walking around the floor. And that’s if you were smart enough NOT to eat a BBQ pork sandwich for lunch. Big TVs! Meh. So tired…thirsty…
Also, if some people sit on the floor in a very uncomfortable way, you CAN actually fit 11 people into a limo.
