Renee Blodget, Silicon Valley PR queen, notes that press rooms and other places were a lot more crowded at CES due to more bloggers.
It’s interesting times we live in. The thing is, four years ago Engadget didn’t exist. So, in the rules of the old-school, they would never have gotten a “seat” at press conferences. Today they are the ones with millions of page views. I do note that not getting into press conferences didn’t keep Engadget from getting some of the best news at previous events. Peter Rojas and team worked their asses off last year and this year they covered CES like no one else has.
