It's New Year's eve and soon the beginning of another year in technology. At this point, I'm somewhat dislocated from the river of blogs and news. I've spent some of the holiday time observing eagles as they float above the river and feast on spawning salmon. But my attention is gradually turning to the tech world, with the massive CES in Las Vegas on the horizon.
While CES is known as the consumer electronics show, it increasingly has application in the business world as personal and professional lives are fused with technology.
