CES: Steve Ballmer pens a blog item at the Huffingon Post

LAS VEGAS — The Huffington Post today published a blog item by Chief Executive Steve Ballmer kicking off the Consumer Electronics Show.

Not much news in the post for those hungering for the latest in the great slate debate. Ballmer opines that CES is about fun and games, but what’s more important is that technology will save the environment and solve health care. But what about the children? Them, too.

“… in the next decade I think that the real story will be even bigger as technology assumes a central role in helping us tackle three of the biggest issues we face: providing quality affordable health care, taking care of our planet, and educating our children,” Ballmer wrote.

The Huffington Post seems to be open to serving as a free-rein outlet for editorials by Microsoft executives. In December, chief legal counsel Brad Smith wrote a commentary on Microsoft’s philanthropic work developing free software for the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children.
