Well, it’s 2 days away. I fly out to the Consumer Electronics show. It’s a very interesting time for me and even now I am anxious about the trip. Still looking for Sponsors, so if you have a product you want to promote, let me know and we’ll work out the details. I get into Vegas around 11 AM. Podcast will be done from Vegas (still need to find a good headset mic). The LIVE Show, though is still on. We have 2 great Panelists and will talk some great tech. If you haven’t watched the video from last week with Rob Greenlee from Zune and Gary Leland from Podcast Pickle, then you are missing out. It was a great 2 1/2 hour show.
