Tekzilla’s Patrick Norton and Veronica Belmont tape their show at CES 2009 at the NBC Universal mega display area which included exhibits, surface computing tables, a bizarre TV Octopus thing,, and a “blogging lounge” where celebrity bloggers were featured.
Note to NBC – IMHO celebrity blogging is something of an Oxymoron – part of the value and power of the medium is the massive exchange and shared voices. Next year you might host a “real” blogging lounge along the lines of the superb Cntrstg Blog Lounge setup bloggers enjoyed over at the Wynn.
The fantastic Cntrstg blog lounge at the Wynn during CES 2009 was definitely one of the conference highlights for me. The event lasted for much of the conference late into the night and provided a fantastic venue for blogging, relaxing, and several good tech presentations. Cntrstg was along the lines of the Bloghaus in the Bellagio – a great event from the past two CES’s.
Thanks so much to the Cntrstg crew who did an amazing job of keeping folks fed and fueled and to the sponsors of this excellent Blog lounging event:
Disclosure: Freebies from the blog lounge included beer, great Wynn catered food, a Scooba laptop bag, and a free airline ticket from the American Airlines presentation.
