Grapes on a plane

Disclaimer: This is a junket report.

I’m in a car driving back from “Grapes on a Plane.” Steve Broback is driving. I’m blogging. And hungover.

Anyway, Kevin O’Keefe give the report (he does a great set of law blogs).

We got a ride on a Learjet, which was a real treat, thanks to Greenpoint Technologies (which sponsored the trip and also sponsors the Big Business Jet Blog) and ate at Hedges Winery, which had awesome wine and a really fun owner.

Other people who were there? Andru Edwards of Gear Live Media, Theresa Valdez Klein, Maryam, Tim Stay, of Know More Media, Tris Hussey and Jim Turner, Halley Suitt, Kim Larsen of Blog Business Summit, Eric Anderson and his wife Jeanene, the CEO of Greenpoint, Jon Buccola who told us about all the weird planes that they’ve done for various billionaires. I’m sure I’m forgetting a couple of people, sorry.

Steve says this was a reward for the Blog Business Summit speakers and a reward for affiliates who got the most traffic to their site.

Anyway, hope you’re having a good time this weekend. Now back to reality.

There’s a lot more on the Blog Business Summit over on Google Blog Search. It was a great conference, I especially liked John Batelle’s speech on Friday.

  1. LOVED the video… Watched every minute of it!

    Greenpoint Technologies and Hedges Family Estates are very class acts!

    Two recommendations… [1] Both Greenpoint Technologies and Hedges Family Estates ought to add a blog to their sites, and [2] You have just got to get one of those beauty planes for you, Maryam and Patrick! ;)

  3. Oh sure, just because I was the cameraman at the event, I don’t get a mention on the famous Scoble blog? Let’s not forget I was the one who brought home the footage of this still-secret bread cutting technique and melted-LP scratching.

    It was cool hanging out with all the A-list bloggers, even if I was “only the cameraman”.

    I should start a blog. I hear it’s the cool thing to do.

  5. It was a treat to get to know you and Maryam as well as all the other people on the trip.

    Follow the jump on my name. I put up an interview with Christine on Greenpoint Technologies there.

  7. Yes to moleskine PDA-A ehh.

    Free pizza can be had by telling the Pizza man they will get a $5 tip if they can cut the pizza into 7 equal slices. Try it at home. lol

    Works everytime and the staffers have fun with it too.

  9. Robert,
    I know this is off topic. Has anyone done any research into flexible viewing screens? Kinda like the ole roll up solar panels.

    Just one of those can it be done and why not thoughts.
    De-Bonno’s hats / Triz stuff for the MSFT.

  11. Hi Robert. I’m glad you had fun. As always, it was great to see you and Maryam!

    BTW, I have that melted LP you were scratching with your butter knife. I consider it a piece of Robert Scoble memorabilia.

  13. As a Samuel Jackson, I have to say I’m sometimes a little worried about appropriate usages of the “___ on a plane” meme. Be careful, Scoble–one hungover slip-up and the full wrath of Samuel L could come crashing down upon you, or something.

    Honestly I don’t know if He actually polices the internet(s) for inappropriate applications of the phrase; maybe he has crawler-robots do it. Mystery!
