Ok, not quite. But doing a daily TV talk show from Oracle OpenWorld 2009 this year was tons of fun (remember, that’s where I work). There’s something about live video that’s really fresh, definitely something we will explore further.

Here’s the program site in case you’re interested. If you were among the millions who tuned in, here’s a good place to give feedback. Thanks!

Here’s a recording of ABC7 News’ live coverage immediately following the quake.

Only a matter of time until the next one hits.
