CES Snapshot – Sands Expo Center

CES continued to overload the senses forcing me to allocate my budget in 2007 to buy half of everything I saw once it all hits the market. This time I took a 15 minute shuttle ride over to the Sands Expo Center where I was able to have a more relaxed show experience.

Time Magazine, Web 2.0 and You

Nevermind Sacha Baron Cohen’s ability to make us laugh while holding up a mirror to our ugliest traits, Al Gore’s exposing platform to get millions inspired about environment, Sir Bono’s tireless work in Africa, Michael J. Fox’s spotlight on stem cell politics, Time Magazine’s person of the year this year is “you” or “us” depending on how you look at it. Let’s be clear.
