BlogHausing at CES

The BlogHaus is ready to rumble. We were up until 3 a.m. getting it ready. Lots of connectivity, big screens, PlayStation3’s, Xboxes, and other stuff. Oh, screw all that, it’s about the free food and drinks.

Anyway, it all starts tonight. We’ll be streaming Bill Gates keynote. But check in here later today for a few surprises. My video camera is gonna get onto some interesting stuff. Big hint: Frank Shaw came over last night while we were having dinner. There are two hints that you need to read between the lines in his post. Can you find them both?

Oh, and I find myself joining with Frank Shaw and agreeing with Nick Carr this morning. A year or so ago I wrote that it’s more important to get things fast than to get them completely right.

I was wrong. The rush to “instant journalism” isn’t a good one. It’s why I don’t even try to keep up with Mashable, TechCrunch, or GigaOm anymore. I’d rather be a few weeks late, with an insightful interview and a good look at the technology. That’s really why I do my linkblog so I feel less pressure to try to get on the “break it first” treadmill.

By the way, the really interesting CES stuff will come around Thursday. Why is that? Cause that’s when all the bloggers will get tired of covering the “big co’s news” (Microsoft announces a bunch of stuff tonight) and will move over to the Sands, where there are hundreds of companies trying to get attention. That’s where, last year we found the Celestron SkyScout. I’m most looking forward to seeing what is over there this year.

Another watermark will be Monday evening, when tons of small companies show their wares to journalists (and some bloggers did get press passes this year) at the Showstoppers expo. Unfortunately this is just for journalists and press, unless you registered for it early (like I did).

Anyway, more soon. Oh, and watch my Twitter account. I’ll try to post from the Seagate Limo where I’ll be next.

I also will try to keep up with my LinkBlog, no promises, though, my schedule is fully booked until Thursday and my first priority is getting video for PodTech (watch the home page).

UPDATE: Dave Winer got first videos of the BlogHaus, among other things. He hasn’t been to Vegas in 15 years, so it’ll be interesting to hear how this year’s CES compares to big shows of yesteryear.

  3. Agreeing with Nick Carr? You do realize Carr was being sarcastic, right? I’d be shocked to find you would be agreeing with him in that case

  5. By the way, Showstoppers isn’t open to all press pass holders, just those they consider “real” journalists. We had no trouble registering as CES press for our gadget blog but Showstoppers rejected us when I tried to register early.

    No big deal, there’s tons of stuff to see at the real CES…

  9. Hi Bob,

    I don’t know if you or your readers care, but I have posted several articles about Verizon’s mobile TV announcement at CES, including “live” blogging updates about it as I watched the webcast.

    It’s here: http://www.mobiletelevisionreport.com/2007/01/verizon_wireess.html

    I also posted a couple of items about Sprint, that issued two press releases in a day reminding people how great their mobile TV service is!

    Frankly, Sprint’s mobile TV service is the best of any cellular operators in the U.S.

    But Verizon’s MediaFLO service will certainly raise the bar.
