    You were on for the whole hour? Wow.

    As for future interactions with students and teachers, I will agree that this will probably be a future use of Wave. One of my professors currently uses Google Groups to maintain a class website where he distributes papers, and allows for discussions. I can easily see the transition to Wave, at least for this class.

    Impressive, even if it is the worst “news” organization in the country.

    Things like this are great for raising your media profile, Gina. Well done. I’m just sad that it was with a network who are trying to deny people like you and I our basic human rights. Shame.

    UGH. Did you REALLY just use the “on crack” modifier? Let’s just chalk that and the mile-a-minute speech up to being nervous on network TV and brush it under the carpet for now. (Yes I understand not being in studio is a conversational disadvantage).

    Great job, breathe deep, and keep us lowly peons who didn’t get invites informed about our favorite products. πŸ™‚ Congrats.

    Very cool. You might have noticed this, but they misspelled your website by your name as “smartware.org”.

    @Thomas: I know, I know. Given the chance, I would’ve come out of the closet as a gay-married, flaming liberal. Next time I’ll wear my No on 8 shirt. I accepted the interview because it was about technology, and I’ve got lots of friends and family members who watch Fox. Regardless of how I feel about its political content, it was an opportunity I decided to take (after much deliberation).

    @jnovack: Yes, I said “on crack”–I hope you can forgive me. I was nervous.

    @Luke: Yeah they borked my URL at first but then corrected it later on.

    @All: At first I thought this was going to air on TV, but it didn’t–it streamed live on the web, and is available as a video podcast on iTunes (Morris says its the most popular vidcast on iTunes). So I wasn’t actually on TV. Next time. πŸ™‚

    @gina: I’d be nervous too, I’m only playfully teasing. Thankfully, nobody wants to see my face on my TV and I have nothing to say that anyone wants to hear, so I don’t have to worry about it.

    I was getting ready to make a “What were you doing on FoxNews, I thought California was made up of bed-wetting liberals” joke, but I was afraid of it being misinterpreted as flamebait and being banned considering these other comments. Yikes.

    Sorry, Gina, you are so awesome but these other “experts” are just what I would expect from Fox News. The host isn’t horrible, but one of the guests basically admits he forgot what he was going to say, and then the woman is confused when the host brings up the topic of whether Wave could replace GoToMeeting. It’s clear you were the only sentient being on the show. Thanks for doing us true nerds proud! If you ever edit a version of this with just you, please post to Vimeo/YouTube and forward the link. BTW, it’s true that you are adorable.

    Hi Gina
    Sorry for trouble you,
    Can you add a feature to better gmail: when I go through my emails in a certain label, then click to enter an email, read it etc. then I click back to the label, can you add some indication shows what is the email I just entered.
    Currently every time I go in an email to read, then go out to the label I am lost in all the emails and need to recall what is the email I just entered… thanks
