Click To Play play_blip_movie_119809(); So, a couple of months ago I was one of the speakers at the 2006 Blog Business Summit in Seattle, WA. As a thank you to some of the speakers and better performing affiliates, Steve Broback and company flew us over to Washington’s wine country, courtesy of a couple of jets from Greenpoint Technologies. As always, we had our cameras in tow, and put together the montage video that you see above. …

Click To Play I have no idea how we pulled this off, especially with stiff competition like Diggnation, Command-N, Systm, CrankyGeeks, and others - but we did it. Gear Live’s technology video podcast, The Bleeding Edge, won the award for Best Technology Video Blog. This is truly amazing, and an honor, and let’s us know that despite all the silliness and fun we are having doing what we do, there is a movement happening, and we …

Alright, I had totally forgot that my boy Chris Pirillo caught this on camera. I spoke a bit about how BootCamp totally wrecked my MacBook Pro - while covering E3, no less - with the end result being that Apple totally stepped up to the plate to help me out. Check out the video above that Chris put on YouTube, capturing a portion of my tech support call to Apple while sitting in the E3 …

Categories: Blogging, Business,

Over the past day or so, I have been putting a little too much time into dealing with an issue brought to me by Engadget’s Managing Editor, Ryan Block. Let me first say that in my previous dealings with Ryan, he seems to be a good guy. I don’t have a deep-seeded hatred for Weblogs, Inc., Engadget, or any of their staff. However, yesterday put a different spin on how I view these guys. Prior to …

As our sites grow in readership and popularity, we need to keep up with that demand by upgrading our servers when the event calls for it. Over the past two days, we have been in the middle of our latest server expansion, and a couple of things went wrong right near the end. Our Expression Engine plugins were not compatible with the latest version of PHP, and it resulted in some unsightly errors across the sites …

Oh man, the people at Digg are having a field day with this one. There is a submission titled “Engadget: Busted for Unethical Blogging” that currently has almost 700 Diggs and over 120 comments. As it turns out, Engadget posted a story crediting DAPreview, and using their watermarked picture. A short while later, the picture was cropped, removing DAPreview’s watermark - and the link was changed from DAPreview to an alternate source. They were called out …

Someone needed to do it, and it looks like Jason Calacanis is the one making the plunge. According to Jason, in exchange for “advertising/a thank you” he is looking to host podcasts for free. I just dropped him an email asking for more details. Recently, we have been using CacheFly for hosting our podcast (which is a great service) - but we have quickly found that when you do video, storage becomes an issue. Jason - …

The Bleeding Edge

Categories: Business,

I absolutely love what we are able to do with our video show, The Bleeding Edge. In today’s world, all anyone needs is a camcorder, some knowledge, and the magic of broadband to put together a fairly decent production. Of course, we hope that the show gets better and better each week (which I think has been the case so far.) If you haven’t seen it yet, and you are into gadgets and technology, check …
