CBS CEO Leslie Moonves’ keynote at CES managed to squeeze in more Web 2.0 buzz words, and viral videos references than I’ve heard all week — the Numa Numa kid, diet coke and mentos, Second Life, YouTube, wikis, avatars, mashups. Well, CBS has been proactive recently in embracing new media, Internet communities, and mobile services, and it was pretty endearing listening to Moonves joke about the Chenbot video, a viral video of his wife’s favorite catch phrase crutch (Julie Chen outed as stiff and repetitive? truly shocking).

CBS also announced a contest with YouTube that will bring user-generated videos to the Super Bowl commercials show, and said it was beta-testing new video clip-sharing software from Sling Media. Read more in the full post over at NewTeeVee.

  1. Trulover,

    We are actually working on a new project using asterisk to provide businesses with free wireless on there cell plan. There is opportunity everywhere if you know how to look.


  2. One of the Voice / Web 2.0 things worth mentioning is ((truphone)) a WiFi mobile carrier, which has enabled 4 phones to act in a completely new way! Just got back from holidays and saved probably $2000 dollars on mobile phone calls because I used my Nokia E60 and E61 to connect via WiFi and made calls by using “mobile VoIP”, heads up for truphone (I believe they are at CES)

  3. If you are attending the CES tomorrow and want to get a meeting with eFamily executives, please shoot us a note.

    I think you will really like our services.
