A scene from CES past...

So there I was, sat in the crowds at the opening keynote for CES 2009. Steve Ballmer was on stage, selling Microsoft like only he can, when he stopped to run a video.

The spotlights went down, the screens at the side of the stage lit up, and a procession of Windows devices flashed onto them. The main screen was still on, showing a list of company names - and there was Ballmer, standing silhouetted against the bright background.

I raised my camera.

Click.

L'éminence noir

A rather iconic image, if I say so myself.

Las Vegas, Nevada
January 2009

Reminds me of Georce C Scott standing in front of the giant US flag in MacArthur.

moral_vacuum's right; you should try and place it somewhere.

Quite correct. Serves me right for trying to recall the neames of American generals at 2:20am.
