CES 2011 – Gotta Love It
One of our favorite bloggers, Dave Zatz, wrote a blog post today re tips for CES 2011 – he said it was in rebuttal to Jeremy Toeman’s similar list, though as Toeman pointed out, he agreed with 9 out of 12 points. Without going line by line, I will say that between the two of them they got the big stuff – try to avoid the “CES flu” (I have not – my life is such that I get sick the day before I come here and spend the entire time fighting it), wear comfortable shoes because you should depend on your feet for the most reliable – and quick – transportation around (see pic here of girls who are going to want to amputate at the end of the day – no, this is no one at INK), and think of other ways to communicate because your cell phone is likely not going to work.
They left out – ENJOY IT. It’s crazy, it’s tiring, it’s just overall ridiculous, but it’s also amazing, for exactly all of those reasons. I didn’t make the trip last year (due date being the same as the first day of the show will do that to you) and I sorely missed it. Apparently Zatz felt the itch to get out here as well since his original plan was not to come, but now he’s hopping on a plane for a quick day trip to the crazy land.
If you are lucky enough to work in tech, come on in – the water’s fine.
