My Bags Are Packed

Well I’m off to Chicago for NCTA’s Cable 2001 trade show. I don’t know if I’ll be blogging until I get back. Depends if the hotel has high-speed Internet access. I’m at a Marriott and they usually do these days. If I can get online I’ll post some pictures of me in the TechTV Diner. I’ll be the guy in the trainee cap.

  1. Heck, I went to CES here in Vegas and tried to meet you and Patrick. I guess you were stuck in your dressing rooms, (bla bla big) now your a big celebrity, and I wasn’t willing to wait for hours. Maybe you can come back, but not during CES week. It’s too hectic…
    Remember the little guys…

  2. Tell Chicago to watch out because Leo is invading NCTA’s Cable 2001 Trade Show. Hope you have a good time.

  3. We tried to arrange a personal appearance in Chicago but I guess it was too short notice or something. Oh well.

  4. Hope you have a good time, did you ever get the water problem solved on your new land? And dont be nervous about speaking in front of all those people, just use that old relaxation technique of imagining everybody in their underware.

  5. Of course! We who have broadband internet connections at home should not be denied the speed just because we have to travel 🙂 Best of luck to you, Leo!

  6. Wow Leo in Chi-Town.. Shame the cubbies are in Arizona would have liked to taken you to a Cubs game.. :’)
    Shame ya couldn’t set up a Public appearance while in Chicago instead of just being a closed to the public type show.. :'( Would love to meet my fav. techtv person and talk geek speak, outside of the “women of techTV” that is..

  7. When are “The Screen Savers” coming to Chicago!!! We would love to have you. You can thank 21st Century/RCN cable for carrying TechTV.
    While your here, a few “Chicago musts”:
    1. The best Steak in the midwest – “Gibson’s Steakhouse” on rush. Billy Joel has been know to spin out a few on the piano in the bar while in town.
    2. The White Sox / Cubs series – the game of the year in chicago. Going on right now.
    3. The MicroCenter on Elston. Their prices are a little high, but jeze, they got a lot of stuff!!

  8. I agree that the Microcenter in Chicago is wonderful. Of course, I live in a city where the best place to buy computer stuff is (gasp) Best Buy! Arrrghh!
    I’d love to see a Microcenter here. They’re fantastic.
    Be sure to check out the bargain geek books there.
    FYI, the hardware store next door is pretty kewl too!
    In Joy! Diana
    PS: I think the Museum of Broadcast Communications http://www.mbcnet.org/ in Chicago would be a fun place for Leo to visit.
