Ethan does incredible PopTech blogging

Thank you Ethan Zuckerman for doing such wonderful blogging from the PopTech conference. Your humanity comes through and the detail is rich. I wish I was there. Here’s the official PopTech blog. I hear Rodrigo y Gabriela blew everyone away. Their Web site rocks. Here’s their MySpace page with even more music. They are playing in Seattle San Francisco this week coming up. Unfortunately I’m gonna miss them in both places.

I hope that PopTech will release all of its sessions in video format. There’s a lot more about PopTech on Technorati. Jason Kottke has good writeups too.

  1. I had the pleasure of seeing Rodrigo y Gabriela play as support for saxophonist Courtney Pine a couple of years ago in Aberdeen, Scotland – very impressive! Their latest album has an edition that comes with a DVD where (as well as some more of their live gigs) they try and show how they play one of their songs by slowing it all down – far from making it seem more simple, it instead showed just how much the pair of them move their hands over those guitars every second.

    Definitely worth catching live if you get a chance at a later date.

  3. Pop!Tech was awesome. It was a great 3 days in a beautiful Maine coastal town. I feel like one of my favorite Far Side cartoons. It shows a boy, about 8-years old raising his hand in class. The caption reads: “Mrs. Smith, may I go home now? My brain is full.”

    I’m not the blogger Ethan is, but you can click on my link and read more about it.
