Surviving CES

Survived CES

This years CES was all about the Bloggers, it was my third year with Press accreditation, but many in the dead tree Press wrote this was the first year bloggers got in; shows you how much they know.

I’m an independent blogger on a budget, members of the Press work for huge conglomerates with big expense accounts. 

I had a hundred requests for meetings, but not one from Microsoft. Microsoft PR has adapted the FEMA tactic of having employees do the reporting. Jeff and Larry of Microsoft’s own on10 were in the Bloghaus, but kept to themselves as the bloggers did what bloggers do; share information and stories. Intel also did their own blogging this year, so they didn’t need to set-up any meetings with a blogger who could link to them.
