ScobleShow Trailer (and tonight’s geek dinner report)

I just uploaded a short preview of what will come soon on the first week of ScobleShow.com to my Blip.TV channel. Thanks to Ryanne and Jay for editing this up.

UPDATE: Shel Israel sat in on an interview I did the other day and gives his overly-kind impressions. Thanks Shel, really means a lot to me. I am having a ball. Yes, I definitely am looking to get new ideas and new people on the show. The first couple of weeks I focused a bit to much on people I already knew, but, then this is a bootstrap and it’ll get better. One thing I keep noticing is that women aren’t showing up to our free and open to the public blogger meetups (tonight yet again only men showed up). That’s really causing me troubles cause I like relying on face-to-face meetings with people.

What do I mean by that? Well, tonight I met a bunch of great people, including David Armano who has the very fine Logic+Emotion blog (it was featured in Business Week this week). Now, I’m far more likely to remember David because he made a deep impression on me when meeting face-to-face (he looks a lot like Vic Gundotra, actually) and now that I’m reading his blog I see that it’s an awesome look at design, among other things. Subscribed.

Is there someone else who has a better design blog? Probably. But David is the one who I’ll remember and his feed is in my news reader now so he’ll remind me of him everytime he posts.

Jeremiah has a good writeup and photos from the dinner.

  1. Jerome: I’m bummed. We tried to leave a paper on the window that explained where we went. Also my cell phone is always on my blog so you could call me. Unfortunately I’m off to the airport.

  3. hey, sorry to have missed the dinner, though did make the effort, riding the Metra down from the western ‘burbs with my bicycle to get me up there, only to find that the Gino’s at 930 N. Rush was closed with paper on the windows

    had no way of finding out where it was going on, tried checking the Gino’s East, but they hadn’t heard anything, didn’t think to try Giordano’s

    suggest next time it might be nice to link to someone’s blog with details, maybe even post a correction if there’s an open invite and the location moves, tia!

    was standing on the street trying to use Opera mini on my phone to find out where y’all might be

    still had a good time, checked out the experimental jazz Wednesday nights at the Hideout (am the webmaster there) before missing my train home, riding the El as far west as it goes, and riding the bike the rest of the way on silent streets

    would be up for trying again, whether or not Robert is in town, if can find out about when and where

  5. It was fun to meet everybody last night. It reminds me that I need to get out of my house a little more often. Everytime I drive into the city I’m amazed at how much it has changed and since I live so close, that really shouldn’t happen.

  7. Looks very good Robert
    Can’t wait for the show.
    Am out in San Francisco next week meeting with Shel and am looking forward to seeing The Golden Gate for the first time.

  9. Josh, thanks, yeah, I was using the post to WordPress feature over on Blip. I won’t use that anymore and will just copy and paste the HTML over. Weird, though, cause it worked fine on Sunday.

  11. Embedded Quicktime can be troublesome (not just from blip.tv). When I post something from Blip to my WordPress blog, I make sure to wait until Blip has transcoded it to Flash, and then post after the Flash is showing up as the “embedded” player. Much more compatible that way. Plus, blip still gives you a link to the original (Quicktime or whatever) for people to download, and most importantly, to show up as the enclosure in your feed, so that podcatchers can subscribe to you.

    Hope that helps – I’ve fiddled with blip-to-Wordpress posting quite a bit, so let me know if you need any help. Of course, Mike from blip will probably beat me to it. :-)
