Talking about weblogs with Charlie Sykes and my fellow Wisconsin webloggers was fun. As I mentioned in my live posting it's tough being on with a bunch of other people. I had things to say, but I was a little nervous and didn't want to talk over anyone. I also wanted those not in the studio to get their say in.
As Kevin points out, I won the coin toss and got to post from the same computer the weathermen sit at. In a way that might have been a distraction. I know I spaced out at least one time either looking through some of my past posts or from seeing something in the Journal Sentinel sitting right in front of me.
Charlie opened the show to calls but either we were just too interesting or his audience was wondering, "Who are these guys?"
Having an audience of thousands was terrific, but just a great was putting weblog to face. Kevin, Owen, and I hit it off immediately. It shouldn't have been hard since we kind of know how one another ticks by reading each other's weblogs. I can't forget the weblog newbie Patrick at My View of the World and Blog General at BRAINPOST. Unfortunately, it was impossible for me to really connect to them via the phone. Someday we'll all get together in one physical space. You know Lefties will be shaking in their boots at the thought of that.
Here are some points I'm taking away:
Below the fold I have some pictures from just after the show.
