Excited to Be Heading to CES This Week!

by on January 4, 2010 · 6 comments

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!

    I'll be there, Adam. I, too, am eagerly awaiting the Tech Policy Summit.

    I hope that you will have a great time there. The New York Times has an article Trying to Add Portability to Movie Files. The article disingenuously reports that: “The group is setting out to create a common digital standard that would let consumers buy or rent a digital video once and then play it on any device.”. We already have common digital standards that would allow the consumer to play content on any device , so there is no need to create this “new” standard. I hope that you will stand-up for the implementation of open source standards.

    Thanks for the mention, Adam! We look forward to seeing you there. We created a Twitter list and a Guide to Tech Policy at CES that we hope will help other tech policy folks find each other during the event. It's on our site at:
