And now I can get some sleep

The experiment in sleep deprivation that the rest of you know as CES is almost over (the BlogHaus closes in 45 minutes and we start cleaning up and heading for home). I’m struggling to get some videos up, we did two more Retrevo gangs that I might not be able to get up for a while (probably next week), along with a ton of videos. But nothing like what you’ll see over on GearLive.com over the next week. They uploaded more than 100 videos. Those guys are machines. Andru Edwards tells me they’ll roll out that 100+ videos over the next week.

Congrats to both Engadget and Gizmodo. UPDATE: Looking over the past week I think Engadget did the best job, but that doesn’t mean Gizmodo was a loser. I found a lot to value on both sites. (I did keep up my link blog all week long and it seems I linked to a few more Engadget items than Gizmodo ones. Either way I find I linked to a lot more of their stuff than anyone else put up, including CNET, who had a sizeable booth). The loser is everyone else. After visiting both Gizmodo and Engadget all week, I came away with a much better idea of the best stuff on the show floor than I would have gotten anywhere else.

Thanks to everyone who came to the BlogHaus, it was an over-the-top success for both us and our sponsors (Seagate, AMD, and Microsoft). Definitely will happen again.

UPDATE: Loren Feldman’s bubble bath is hillarious. His gestures toward Doc Searls and Jason Calacanis got me to snort up my orange juice. Loren is the video blogger who slammed my videos for being too long and boring. We’ve spent quite a lot of time together and he’s nicer and funnier in real life.

  1. Sounds like the BlogHaus was a much larger success then you or PodTech expected. That is great news.

    Congrats, it seems like everything went smooth.

  3. Pyles: it was way better than any of us had planned out. I knew it could get explosive due to the word-of-mouth network, but didn’t count on dragging in so many interesting other people.

  5. Uh, sponsored by your former employer on a seemingly independent blog? Well, there goes your credibility. I like how you’re pretending that CES was the actual story of the week. LOLZ.

  7. Bloghaus sounded like a blast!! Thanks for keeping us poor folks up to date. One of these days I will make it to a CES or a Macworld. Just have to start saving my pennies.

  9. Hypertime: I had no credibility to start with. So, how do you lose something you never had? But, seriously, if you don’t think I’m credible, just read my link blog where I pick the best of the 460 blogs and news sources I read.

  11. Darn! I was hoping to go over to BlogHaus today! The rest of my CNET team went home, and I changed my flight so I could relax and have some fun. Oh well. Congrats on the success of BlogHaus, and your partnership with Seagate for the event.

  14. Engadget was phenomenal. Gizmodo should copy what works and put related topics in a single thread (a la Engadget’s MacWorld coverage).

  16. Thanks to everyone for keeping me up to date on CES. I expect to see you and Maryam Saturday morning back in HMB (Cafe Classique) if you can get up. We can always make it later 🙂

  20. Wish I could’ve come by to say hi to the gang over there. Next year maybe you guys can get the reservation at the Residence Inn so it’s a bit easier to just pop on by? The Bellagio is sweet, but it’s really one of the harder hotels to get to with all the traffic during CES…
