CES 2011 Video Moments

I hope you enjoy these two video montages of the sites and sounds of CES. It's a visual and auditory mashup, but so is walking around the show floor.

Inside the Design Mind of Ford's CEO Alan Mullaly

At this past week's All Things D conference, Alan Mullaly was asked by his hosts to reveal the page of notes he created in prep for his interview. Mullaly was dynamic, energetic and enthusiastic about the integration of popular consumer technology in cars rolling off the Ford line. His notes show how he organized his thoughts around the key points he wanted to make, which might offer a good template for Mark Zuckerberg to use next time he readies for a session in the hot seat!
