How are the geeks following CES this year?

Have you been wondering, “Hey, I’m a geek, how am I supposed to be getting CES coverage this year?” There are so many formats nowadays to consume content: tech blogs, tech news sites, liveblogs, livestreams, network television broadcasts, and about 300000 streaming video sites. It can get a bit overwhelming. Let me point out what I think are the two best outfits to get your CES coverage from this year.

TWIT (This Week In Tech, a 24/7 streaming tech news and editorial network): – They’re streaming live here from the 6th the 11th, this is their main coverage and has floor interviews as they happen, with no editing and tons more info that you’ll get from any Today Show Al Roker segment. Oh and TWiT is run and hosted by Leo Laporte, who was THE GUY back in the day on Tech TV and has become even MORE of THE GUY in the world of podcast and internet streaming. – This is where the stuff they stream during the day gets produced and put up for download after the fact, so you can watch it on your own time. and – Coverage of the coverage. Leo takes live videos on the Qik page as they go through CES. Other staffers post photos in the posterous page. Let’s you get to know the crew a little better and get the fun behind the scenes moments.
Revision3 – Revision3 is having three of their shows staff do coverage of CES and putting up all the videos on this page for your easy access. Tekzilla’s staff in particular has a number of former Tech TV people including the awesome Patrick Norton. This is where you’re going to want to look if you want condensed coverage of as much as possible and not the more leisurely livestream strolling that TWiT will have.
Convention coverage just seems to get better and better on the internet each year. It’s already been the place we geeks went to in order to get info from people who know what they’re talking about. CES 2010 is now bring together all the great Internet TV work of the past few years and delivers it live and more polished than it’s ever been. Highly recommended.
