I'll be out at CES next week, during the middle of the week. It really is the oddest show. The main reason to go, and indeed the reason I'm going, is that everyone else goes.
So its a great place to connect with a whole lot of people from all over in a very short amount of time. I hear there's some exhibition thing there, too... though, if previous years are any indication, I might not even make it to the show floor (at least, not for very long) - ands its certainly NOT a compelling reason to show up.
Those ouroborosistic sophists would be proud.
