I have absolutely no idea which parties I have RSVPd to, but I am not flying out directly for CES - I actually have a Windows Vista lab on the Saturday and Sunday before hand. I ahve attended several of these labs, met and made some great friends so am looking forward to it.
There will of course be lots of familiar faces there as well as two guys I have not yet met who are big in this blogosphere
thing we have such as Long Zheng and Brandon LeBlanc, however I don't think they are of drinking age so there could be some issues. I will most likely actually meet Robert Scoble this year, met him briefly last year when wandering around with Bink and gawping at plasma televisions the width of main roads, but that will be after CES has started.
Definately alot more people here this year and not all featured communities, hoping to move away from the Windows XP Featured Communities soon to something new with a shinier logo.
