CES 2013 Introduction
For the last 20 years my holiday season has been shrouded by the pall of the impending Consumer Electronics Show. Not that I wouldn't want to go mind you, it's just that there's so much work and importance wrapped up in CES that its hard to get off your mind. So, I tried a new tack this year. I decided to mentally camouflage the show with a little camping/motorcycle vacation in Death Valley beforehand. I figured mixing a little business with pleasure would make the big CES pill a little easier to swallow. And you know what? It worked! The Holiday season was a lovely mix of anticipation and angst...that's about normal, right?
Since I tend to write in a personal tone I thought it might be nice to take you along for a few moments in Death Valley as a prequel to my CES introduction, which follows on the next page. Here's a few images from this unearthly landscape.
Alrightythen! Let's go to Vegas!
