Your humble editor (@BFTCPA) is at the Venetian in fabulous Las Vegas for the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show. I’ll be providing coverage of the event for the next three or four days, and will try to filter the content to items that have direct implications for members of the accounting community. If you have comments, concerns, or thoughts, please share them with me on Twitter (@bftcpa). I’ll try to address them in my posts, which will include more than one post per day in most cases, but the bandwidth is… a little dicey. 140,000 nerds use a LOT of spectrum.
So far, Wired has the best logo for their CES coverage:
There are a number of things which I expect to cover:
- There are a wide array of press events today (Sunday) and tomorrow (Monday) where companies will be making announcements. I’ll be attending some of these, but don’t expect me to go off the deep end on home theater technology. The coverage here has and will always be about getting more done with your time.
- The PepCom Digital Experience! is Monday night, and Steve Ballmer of Microsoft will be presenting a keynote around the same time. Decisions, decisions….
- iTwin has a big announcement Tuesday morning, and I’ll be attending that one at The Venetian in late morning, and will be working the floor most of Tuesday.
- ShowStoppers is Tuesday night, and I’ll be over there with a few thousand of my closest friends and neighbors (including the guys from Mobile Monitor Technologies (mmt2.com)).
- I’m having dinner with some other accounting tech experts on Wednesday night (@GLafollette, @BGaby, @DCieslak, and others), and it should be very interesting to trade notes with them on what they saw which caught their eye in the two days of the show to that point. (No word from @RHSpencer on whether or not he is going to attend that dinner).
- I intend to stomp as much of the trade show floor as possible, focusing on things that you’re not going to get from most traditional outlets.
Again, if you have questions or feedback, you can contact me (@BFTCPA) using either a public or a private message on Twitter.
