This will be my fifth or sixth year going to CES in Las Vegas. Instead of trying to see the whole show in just three days, my dad and I are going to split up and target some very select areas - mostly small Asian electronics manufacturers.
And for BarCampNYC - it is a great excuse to visit my friends at 349 Broadway again. Amit and Mike are working behind the scenes to pull off what promises to be a truly interactive weekend of learning. The unique thing about BarCamp is that All attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. I am thinking about sharing what I learned about low-cost outsourcing using websites like eLance, RentACoder and Guru to help build the BuddyGopher back-end. Or I could teach people how to juggle!
Update 1 - As my friend Blake reminded me... The funniest quote that I have is from someone at CES 2004, when I asked where they were on the show floor so that we could meet up-
(phone rings)This joke is funny because there are more than 100,000 LCD screens on display at CES. That number is not really an exaggeration - there is nothing like CES anywhere else in the world. It is technology overload.
Me: Hey! (shouting, because it is so loud) Where are you?
Friend: We're in the LCD section, I think.
