The Writers Workbench
Okay, it's finally here. At last, my bizarrely-long overview of CES 2016. Readers of these pages got a hint during the tech show of some of my random thoughts, but those pieces only touched the surface. Sort of like a bite-sized appetizer. This is the full-scale, pig-out buffet. It's the article that comes semi-close to giving an idea of what the CES madhouse circus is like.
Each month when I post "The Writers Workbench" column, I always note that I link to the article on the WGA website rather than post it here because it's much too convoluted to re-code the thing for this site, and after all it's already done for the WGA (as well as the Huffington Post). Well, if my normal "The Writers Workbench" columns are too convoluted to re-code here, then this column puts the concept of convoluted to shame.
One final word. I say this in the column, but it bears repeated here. This is a LONG column. If you don't like LONG columns, then do yourself a favor and don't read it and complain after how long it is. Or forever hold you piece. As it oddly happens, I've discovered over the years that some people actually like to know the details of CES and the sense of technology that is there, not merely a mention of the most-visible products everyone writes about. If you're not one of them, I get it. Fair enough. Check back later, we'll have something else for you. But if you're interested in know what CES was at least somewhat really like -- or just like to skim, or simply see all the pictures -- then here's the link.
