ondemand.jpgUpdate: Apparently technical issues ate up the beginning of the show, so we begin rather abruptly. Sorry! But to watch the show, just click on “on demand” and it should roll.

Of course, we’re eager for feedback. What should we call the damned thing? How long should it be? What topics would you like to see discussed? Let us know, either in teh comments or over email.

This is very exciting! This afternoon, we’ll be coming to you live from PariSoMa, where our friends from VidSF are doing whatever magic is required to make live internet video happen. This is a pilot for a weekly, live, “topics in local news” show that we hope to make informative yet non-boring, wonky, or too lame. No promises that we will be successful on any of those fronts! But it will only last 10 minutes, so even if it blows the misery will end swiftly. Also, we do not know what to call this show. Any ideas?

Today our guests are Matt Baume and Jackson West, both of whom are, they tell me, very famous on the interspace. We will be talking about Muni at 4 PM today, and I’m told you will be able to replay the show again and again after it’s done, memorizing Jackson’s every move for your rad impression of him (kids love it) or watching Matty for when he gives the secret signal that he loves you.

Wish us luck!
