The Consumer Electronics show is huge — some say too huge. Too many companies, hawking too many of the same things, with too many people trying to communicate at the same time with too little internet access. And yet, it’s a place for influencers to gather. I’ve been connecting with a number of business, academic and media leaders. There’s still currency in events such as these, even as luminaries such as the Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg question whether there’s true innovation going on here. We ran into top tech blogger Robert Scoble, who shared his opinion:
CES has become less about the specific gadgets and more about the trends. Tablets, for instance, not the exact models. And as Hanson points out, it’s also a great place to network with influencers, because we all know that face-to-face connections are still a big deal, right?
