Several staff members have had very early mornings today, as we are in the process of heading to Las Vegas for the 2009 Consumer Electronic Show. We'll be there in force to provide you with the best coverage possible of the show. I'm sitting in an airport waiting for the trip to begin!

Beyond covering Dish Network, my plan is to focus on Blu-Ray, the latest and greatest in HDTV, and computer gadgets. The scope of the CES Show is hard to describe; imagine a Sam's Club or Costco, and triple the size of the building. Then add on a second floor, and only then do you have the Las Vegas Convention Center. Add to that a SECOND convention center (The Venetian/Sands) and you have CES. Stealing from Howard from Big Bang Theory, "its like nerdvanna." :D

I'll continue to blog as the trip progresses. Now, I just want to get on board the plane, and into Las Vegas.

Planes were delayed, but Ramy and I are here, looking out our room on the strip, going to head to the Sands Press Room to get our credentials, and make a plan of attack for tomorrow.

Yeah, my flight /plane originated out of Chicago and they announced it was running about a half hour late. But, finally arrived here and checked in. CC closed the section I usually stay because, they said, turnouit wasn't good this year. So, I'm in the skyrise tower. A bit longer walk to the bus than I usually have.
Time to rest up and do some non-CES activities tomorrow.
