Barry’s People

Well, I guess a CES convention wouldn’t be complete without a speech from a government official or two. Ususally, I’m suspicious of any government official appearing at these shindigs, they’re usually very fish out of water, but Aneesh is our country’s very first CTO (sorry, Cringely, better luck next time), described by The Daily Show’s John Stewart as the Indian George Clooney

and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski actually know something about what needs to be done as far as improving the internet for everybody (good luck trying to implement that plan, though)but we know that Julius is currently on Dear Leaders shitlist for siding with Google on that Voice app thing. Nevertheless, one is going to hope things work out better this time and us consumers and workers are not getting more smoke up the fundament, again.
