Looking forward to returning to the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year in Vegas after missing the previous year's show. If others are heading out, let me know. Perhaps I'll try to schedule a meet-up one night with some fellow tech policy geeks like I did in past years. First round on me... so long as you're a cheap drinker!
I'm really looking forward to the sessions that the Tech Policy Summit team is hosting at CES this year since they always put together great events. They have sessions on broadband deployment issues; spectrum policy; copyright and new media business models; and discussions with leading policymakers and FCC officials, including FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. Should be a great event and admission is open to all CES attendees. I'm going to try to do some live blogging or Tweeting from some of the sessions.
I'm also speaking on a panel about online child safety and parental control technologies at another event out there called the "Mommy Tech Summit & Exhibition." As you might have guessed, it's a mini-summit geared toward moms who want to learn more about these technologies. The panel discussions take place on Friday but the technology exhibits there will be open the whole time. That will give me a chance to get latest updates for my ongoing booklet on parental control technologies.
Anyway, hope to see some of you there. Those of you who want that free beer know how to find me!
