How I got my press badge for CES
I got my press credentials, the straightforward way. Went to the convention center, found the press registration office. Filled out the form. Printed yesterday's Scripting News, gave it to them. Stood my ground when challenged. Got the badge. Lots of other bloggers were there, all of them got credentials. Not sure they knew what blogs are, but "Internet" was an acceptable form of publication.
