"Do you think I’d be working in a place like this if I could afford a real snake?"
That quote from the stripper Zhora in Blade Runner kept going through my mind at brief time in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Of course if you're press, it's the one place to get your Press Credentials when equipped with nothing more than a three generation old business card and a ripped out page from the Sound & Vision masthead. Those, and a picture ID, and I'm in.
Before departing, I grabbed some shots of reporters filing their reports or grabbing a quick cup of Starbucks. I ran in Joe Kane, a visionary for the video industry, who cut his teeth on CRT projectors and set the standard for home cinema for decades to come.
