CES 2007 is the electronics event of the year and there are no signs of slowing down. The sheer volume of companies, new electronics, gadget lovers, deal makers and media is deafening and entrancing.

Some of the more fascinating elements about CES that you probably won’t read anywhere but here, pertain to the socialization of information and not so much the technology and gadgets themselves. CES has a global audience and a global attendance. And, for five days, we all convene at the LVCC, Sands, among the dozens of simultaneous events globalize information.

There’s almost too much to take in, but I did my best inbetween appointments. Following is a snapshot from the Las Vegas Convention Center. Next up, a snapshot from The Sands.
