What happens in Vegas...

I thought it would be sacrilegious to attend BlogWorld 2010 and not blog about our travels. So here goes. Leo, Lisa, Tom, Sarah and myself attended the show for a brief day.

Here's Leo with a recap:

We even went live with TNT from the blogger lounge.

The video quality wasn't ideal (we had issues on the show floor), but the audio was nice and clean thanks to Blog World Radio. Make sure to scroll to the end of the video for an outtake. Our video went down during the first sponsor read and Jason, Ken and Burke improvised.

Unfortunately we missed most of the panels, but at least we got to walk to show floor!

It was such a fast and furious weekend and in the end we were all pretty beat, but no one more tired than our Chief TWiT. I took this photo and used for the filter. By the way, we were snapping fools on this trip.

Oh, and our hotel was the Mandalay Bay, profiled in the movie The Hangover. Unfortunately, no tigers, babies, or Mike Tyson encounters on this trip.

I have one more video to share, but I think I need Leo and Sarah's permission first ;)


Inside TWiT is back!

Message from the Chief TWiT:

We catch up with Woz in the iPad line

The remote crew of Erik, Colleen and Dane caught up with Steve Wozniak waiting in line the night before the iPad was launched. Great interview by Erik, and due to Colleen's great engineering and coordinating technology and personnel, we were able to stream the video live at high quality. Woz loved our rig, by the way.
