A few of the comments left on the site have made reference to the blog being called Tomorrow's World - and perhaps I should explain the reason.
For those who are either too young to remember, or who live outside the UK, Tomorrow's World was a populist science and technology programme on the BBC which was axed a few years ago after almost 40 years of broadcasting.
BBC News has decided to bring back the "brand" for a whole range of technology coverage which you will see on TV and online over the coming 12 months.
The programme is not being brought back - but the feeling was that the moniker chimed with many people who remembered its accessible and interesting method of communicating developments in technology.
The Technology section of BBC News Interactive is not being re-branded and we're certainly not changing our agenda but there was a feeling, that for CES the brand of Tomorrow's World would work well.
For those of you who remember Tomorrow's World, do you think the programme should be brought back? Or has technology stepped out of an imposed ghetto and now deserves integration with the rest of news coverage?
Perhaps technology needs a special emphasis?
Let us know your thoughts.
UPDATE: Tomorrow's World has clearly sparked a real debate judging by the comments. Just to reiterate what I said in the original posting; there is NO plan to bring back the programme itself. There is a whole series of features on BBC News this year across bulletins, News 24, and online that will use Tomorrow's World as an umbrella.
But I will make sure that these comments are passed on to the big wigs at the BBC. Who knows what these comments might spark....
