File in the category of Things Only Get More Interesting. Turns out the reporter from the local NBC station decided there was more interesting news going on in Central Florida last night. This really comes as no surprise. I've been bumped from local news before.
Back in the mid-80s, I introduced the very first computer-based live video product, BigTime TV. This was the precursor for what would become QuickTime, Flash video, and even the YouTube boom. It was important tech. But even though we did the interview, it never aired because a local elementary school was holding a bubble-blowing contest. And, so, I got bumped by bubbles. After all, what's more important: the future of video or cute kids blowing bubbles?
Ah, but the shameless book promotion news isn't all bad. If you want to hear your esteemed Editor-in-Chief talk about the book, you can tune in online to my first official interview. I'll be on <A HREF="http://www.mypointradio.net/blogs/index.php?blog=5&title=jenn_s_the_bomb_the_boos_the_bomshell_my&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1">MyPointRadio</A> tonight at 7pm.
Now, here's a heads up: we normally talk tech in the ZATZ magazines. But since <A HREF="http://www.EmailsGone.com">the book</A> crosses both tech and political lines, I'm bound to be talking to non-techies. This is a talk show that is decidedly political -- and decidedly conservative oriented. It's also on the Web, so it's completely uncensored.
I'm telling you this to provide you with a bit of a caution before you click on through. Also, the destination Web page isn't 100% safe for work. Even so, I'm expecting this to be whole heck of a lot of fun. As the promotion process goes on, I hope to be talking to people on both sides of the aisle, so this'll be a good chance to meet an audience I might not ordinarily ever get to talk with.
Should you miss the full broadcast, you can also download the interview at <A HREF="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/MyPoint">BlogTalkRadio</A>. This page might be a bit safer for those of you concerned about seeing (or being seen) around naughty words. -- David
