As the folks at HowStuffWorks tweeted earlier, it seems like half the Internet is home sick today. Here at SearchCIO.com Searchlight, we’re lucky to have a very flexible work-from-home policy that allows us to be home sick and work at the same time! That means our readers still get a great roundup of the week’s lesser-known news and info, and our coworkers don’t get a great big roundup of our germs. It’s a total win-win.
And, speaking of picking up germs, what better way to do so than in a giant convention center full of strangers who’ve most likely arrived from far-flung, germy locales via germ-filled planes? While that paints a rather unpleasant picture, it’s not the (main) reason BuzzFeed’s Matt Buchanan skipped the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week. To find out his paradoxical reason, plus the real draw of Vegas, the latest on our “It Girl” DCIM and more, give that link a click.
