I’m in JFK waiting for my plane, but yesterday I spent the day with PodTech star Loren Feldman, who filmed me everytime I was eating something for some reason (among other things New York). Loren cracks me up and the camera he uses? A low cost Casio model that he carries in his pocket.
Along the lines of in-everyone’s-hands media is the Personal Democracy Forum that I just spoke at. I don’t know who has the best posts, there are so many over on Technorati. The official blog is here. Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, spoke this morning and there are a ton of great political bloggers here. I met one guy who works for the Barack Obama campaign and he told me about how a group of students at George Mason University used Facebook (link goes to Washington Post report) to organize a rally that attracted more than 3,000 people.
I’m tired, though, and looking forward to being home with Maryam and Patrick this weekend. See ya tomorrow morning at Maker Faire where we’ll shoot a photowalking and you can take pictures of me eating again.
UPDATE: I agree with what Dave Winer wrote today about the Democracy Forum. It would have benefitted a lot by getting the audience much more involved. Do 1/4 less sessions and give us time to ask questions. The panel I was on benefitted a lot by the audience getting involved, I thought.
