A recurring theme at this year's Consumer Electronics Show is that the mega conference has evolved into a cultural crucible that reveals how rapid advances in technology are reshaping the consumer experience—and therefore society and commerce.
Or as Allie Savarino Kline, CMO of AOL Inc., eloquently puts it, CES has become a "foundational tent pole against which advertising, media and technology converge." Kline, who swung by Adweek's video stage at the Aria in Las Vegas, also said she and her clients are closely monitoring what Dish is doing with Sling TV as an example of technology seriously altering linear television.
She said she also spent some time in a fighter jet simulator and was trying to figure out how to bring home a self-driving car. Shouldn't be an issue.
