A Geek’s Wet Dream Week

This is the week of CES. This is the Gadget Geek’s wet dream week. And I am at home. One of these days I will get a job that will actually pay for me to go to CES, but in the meantime I will be spending my spare moments gleaning off the broadcasts of those who are there, and the vendors promoting their wares. It is funny that a YouTube search for CES 2008 already has a flood of entries- most of them vendors with video of products they are going to demo at CES from Jan 7-10. This is the time to wish and dream and yes, even laugh at the gizmos and gadgets that corporations are trying to flood into our lives. I was over at some friends this evening, trying to be a normal person for a while and missed the Bill Gates Keynote. I am sure that someone somewhere recorded or archived it and eventually I will be able to get it caught up. ( if you know where a copy is, drop me a line, eh?)

CES is where I get to be reassured that the future of my childhood will someday come true. Look I can even buy a Dick Tracy Watch now! ( would not really want one- but someone FINALY made a watch phone… now all we need is a shoe phone….)

  1. I can imagine myself at CES, where I am sure I’d make a complete ass of myself drooling at all the gadgets. Only comparable events I can think of are NAMM (the music gear show) and probably SC.

  2. Drooling is part of CES, that does not make you an ass. As long as you maintain healthy skepticism and can laugh at the really absurd offerings( just like SC), no one would think badly of you at all. Drooling is one of the goals of the conference– I wonder if the attendee welcoming bag contains little drool bibs for participants in anticipation of this?
