The beginning of a new year (and decade) and the technology show to rival all others is underway – at least anything relevant to end users. It is a gadget extravaganza. While it is an overwhelming show, its the best place still to get an overview of everything that is technology. Without a specific agenda and meetings on the calendar, one could question the value of spending time there as its no a terribly intimate venue with over 100,000 in attendance. While none of our companies set up booths at the show, many portfolio executives are there meeting customers and partners.
