Whatz Up - CES edition

I just got back from CES and still decompressing from the 140,000 person 4 full exhibit floors full of consumer electronics.

I have lots of tech that I will be talking about over the next few weeks, but here are a few to start:

1. Hanging as one of the Logitech Guest Bloggers. I shared some initial perspective on the Blogitech blog on Connected TV - but I have another post to come.

2. My First Impressions of CES 2011

3. I posted with some CES tech picks for moms at Cool Mom Tech (just a start.. more to come). Check it out - and comment with what new tech you are looking for.

4. As I was packing for CES, I was also doing interviews for the Inside Source blog and the Wall Street Journal (About 4G - that I wish I would of had at CES because AT&T 3G was not so good). The article was by Don Clark, and I enjoyed ranting about how frustrated I have been that Silicon Valley did not have 4G until just recently.. I mean, come on - it is Silicon Valley!

Reena Jana interviewed me for the fun Inside Source blog about CES and which gadgets I would be bringing with me.. Sorely missing was a 4G Broadband card.

5. The LA Times discussed mom and dad bloggers at CES, and I was happy to get a shout out.

6. At CES, I spoke at a fun Tweethouse at a session called "Measurement and ROI: How To Quantify Costs and Results" with the fabulous Sheila Dowd of Clever Girls Collective and the busy Ben Parr of Mashable (who had just hosted a biggg Mashable party the night before). I shook things up by saying that building a relationship with the right bloggers (that fit a companie's niche) is a valuable part of ROI for social media campaigns. Check out the session at the Tweethouse link.

7. I had the honor of hanging with the fabulous crowd at MommyTechCES summit, a very valuable part of CES. Robin Raskin is someone I look up to as a trailblazer for getting the women and mom's voice out in the technology world. Robin Raskin and an impressive team pulled together the FashionWare high tech fashion show as well. I enjoyed being one of the announcers - but more then that was seeing the fun high tech fashion. I will post with some fun pictures from that. Big Shout out to the MommyTechCES sponsors.

8. Best of all there were about 30 mom/women bloggers that made their way to CES this year. I helped organize a breakfast for them with Sarah Kimmel and The Clever Girls Collective (thanks to SWAGG for sponsoring the breakfast). There were lots of fun meetups, but I always enjoy the Intel Women Bloggers meetups to connect with the fun techie gals. Talking about women, ChicaLogic also hosted a fun dinner for the gals.

9. Once again, I did not make it to all the exhibits at CES that I wanted.. Oh well, maybe next year!

10. Most important are my 3 beautiful boys and my fabulous husband that I missed lots but they know that mama needs her yearly CES fix!

Glad you had such a great time as usual! Thanks for the recap here and the list on Cool Mom Tech! Hoping I'll join you there next year!

Sorry I missed the breakfast. I grossly overestimated how well I would feel at CES. By Saturday, I was beat and I spent most of the day in my hotel room.

It was a crazy busy show.
