Had a blast recording the latest episode of This Week in Google in person with Jeff Jarvis and Leo Laporte in Austin at SXSW this past Saturday. We had a live audience in-studio of friends and supporters there too, with guest appearances by Matt Haughey, Adam Pash, and Jake Jarvis rotating in on the fourth mic. It was so cool to see what happens beyond my Skype headset every Saturday and finally get to give Leo a big hug in person. Speaking of Leo at SXSW, if you haven’t seen him crowdsurfing at the Diggnation party, you must get yourself to the YouTube clip of that stat.
It was awsome. I watched it live (as usual) and it showed you all were quite happy to do TWiG this way for a change.
Did you never saw Jeff or Leo in person before? You are working together on TWiG for quite a while.
I’d met Jeff at a conference in NY, but I hadn’t ever met Leo in person, even though it feels like I’ve known him for years. It was awesome!
