You Know What’s Cool?

January 8, 2008

CES, that’s what. From the South Hall to a panel on sci-fi’s influence on technology to dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant in the Venetian (P-something) to a nightcap at the Wynn, Day 1 was a whirlwind.

A few highlights.

Holy crap! A life-size Bumblebee!

This! Is! Blu-Ray!

The ultimate panel. The panelists were Dean Kagen (inventor of the Segway), Lucy Lawless (of Xena and Battlestar Galactica fame), Neal Stephenson (wrote Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, et al), and Walt Mossberg (Wall Street Journal’s tech columnist and one of the most influential guys in the industry). Absolutely fantastic. The highlights were Lucy calling her fellow panelists “chickenshits”, Mossberg calling Kagen a “chickenshit”, and Mossberg’s quip, when talking about technology being used for evil, that “I think it can be a lot more subtle than Armageddon”.
