Congrats to Make Magazine blog

PC Magazine picked Make Magazine’s blog for its 2006 amazing sites. If you haven’t been following the Make Blog lately, you should, cause they’ve been showing how to make the most amazing Halloween stuff.

Speaking of Halloween stuff, the Zillow blog highlights a fun blog that claims to have the best neighborhood in Seattle to go trick or treating in.

Touching the Wetpaint during Lunch Meeting with Irina and Eddie

We did a Lunch Meeting today (LunchMeet is Eddie Codel and Irina Slutsky‘s new show). We’ll do one a week for now (on Thursdays) to build our process. In November we’ll try to go more — want to make sure we can keep up with the encoding, editing, and publishing. We filmed this today during lunch. In the background you might see Om Malik, Tony Conrad, or Matt Mullenweg walking around. We filmed it in True Ventures offices on Pier 38.

Anyway, while I ran camera Wetpaint‘s CEO, Ben Elowitz, demonstrated this hot new wiki user-editable service. Pretty cool stuff!

The traffic noise is due to filming right next to the Embarcadero with light rail and busses rolling by. We’ll work on that next. Always something to improve in the land of Internet video.

Irina and Eddie do another show, called Geek Entertainment TV, where they have snarky fun with lots of geeks (yesterday they had Mark Cuban on).

If you wanna have your cool company over for lunch, drop a line here in the comments or email irina@podtech.net.
