IF YOU MISSED attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this year, the next best thing to having been there has tipped up. The association that runs the show has put a raft of videos up on the Interweb for your leisurely wibbling edification.
Want to watch Bill Gates' final turn as self-serving visionary to the consumer electronics industry masses?
How about taking in Les Moonvies, one of the empty suits atop the US television networks that feed the incredibly gullible American public misbehaving celebrity distractions disguised as news and peurile reality shows and sitcoms pretending to be worthwhile entertainment, as he says where he thinks the media should go?
Or maybe you'd like to see what Nicholas Negroponte, head of MIT's Media Lab and director of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, had to say at CES?
They're all out there now, free for the viewing, along with many other CES 2008 speeches and presentations. Fair warning though, you'll need MP4 video player software and these mpeg4 videos are large, running to the hundreds of MB each.
The CES videos are here. µ
