“Be what you would seem to be -- or, if you'd like it put more simply, never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.”
—The Duchess, “Alice's Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll
As I read the above quote from Alice in Wonderland, I thought it aptly explained what recently took place in a land called Las Vegas at CES. After all, it is what lies inside the rabbit hole that counts.
Even a seasoned veteran of national mood and trend patterns such as myself will fall prey from time-to-time to the kabuki theater going on in front of him. There can be times when the irrational tilts in favor of covering the rational and reality. What better place for this to take place than the land of make-believe?
