Forget Bill Gates, guys, Valeriewag blows (a kiss at) you.
I asked Doc what he thought of the Valeriewag video.
The Gates keynote was borrrring (no surprise) so I left early and came over to the Bloghaus blogging party. Here’s a movie of the scene.
Artistic shot of people lined up for Bill Gates keynote.
I got a press pass, the straightforward way. Went to the convention center, found the press registration office. Filled out the form. Printed yesterday’s Scripting News, gave it to them. Stood my ground when challenged. Got the badge. Lots of other bloggers were there, all of them got credentials. Not sure they knew what blogs are, but “Internet” was an acceptable form of publication. (Postscript to Gartenberg about bloggers and press passes.)
Two reports on Netgear’s product announcements. Moving video content around a house is something I’ve been playing with for the last few months, and I gotta say I don’t believe Netgear has a product that works for most people. You need a file server for sure, but every TV set must, imho, have its own hard disk and CPU. I prefer the Mac OS and I’d love to get a few Seagate TB disks. Such a setup does make the TV a lot more expensive (today) but I think it’s the only solution that actually has a chance of working. Pretty likely Gates is going to talk about something like this tonight, and his solution almost certainly will put a hard disk and CPU at every TV (he sells OSes after all).

Las Vegas weather: 47 degrees now, high — 55.
Naked Jen: “I am me. Nakedjen. Who protests just about anything and everything.”
Michael Gartenberg on bloggers at CES. I don’t count as one of them, at least not yet. Count me as a gawker, eyes wide open, gears stripped, not knowing where to begin. Like Michael I’m in awe of Peter and the Engadget folk. How do they do it? Me, I’m mostly going to tag along. I have my camera and laptop. And my cold is threatening to come back. I’m going to wear a sweater and warm jacket today, no fashionable sports jackets for this guy. And yesterday Furrier asked me who Gartenberg is. I said you gotta know Michael.
