NewsGang'ing Twitter

Past guests on Steve Gillmor’s NewsGang seem to disappear (fired? quit? overworked? you decide) at a fairly regular clip, so who knows how long I’ll last. But so far it’s been a lot of fun and occassionally interesting for you as well (lots of famous geeks and journobloggers are on it). We did a live show on Friday morning, (right before I got on the plane to head home, and I was a bit, um, tired from all the music the night before) where Jason Calacanis and I Twittered it and that totally changed the dynamic of the show. Thanks to Steve Gillmor for inviting me.

  1. It is like listening to someone play Pong.

    The “I don’t know how to operate this new phone technology” thing works for about the first 20 shows (which happened during the previous Gillmor Gang incarnation).

    The first few of the new shows being about Hillary Clinton threw me for a loop too.

    If he can stick with tech, and get someone to run the equipment for him I think it could be a good show again.

    It is also important to have a regular set of guests who know how to participate in a group discussion (and have something to say).

    So far this doesn’t measure up to the original show, but maybe it will get there eventually.
