We had a great time in Seattle. I flew in on Friday, taped a piece on Tacoma, the self-proclaimed “America’s Number 1 Wired City.” Then we did a show to tape on Saturday. The edited show will air on Friday, 10/19 and through the weekend. Uncle Paul’s museum, Experience Music Project, looked great. Wait til you see how Microsoft’s XBox looks on the wall sized screen behind us.
We had a capacity live audience of about 300, pretty good considering that the Mariners were playing at the same time. It was so fun doing the show with a live audience. I would love to do it that way every night. Thanks to everyone who came to the show.
The weather was awful. At the end of the piece I did in Tacoma there’s rain dripping off my nose and the lettering on my microphone is starting to run. It was cold too. All the natives said that we had just missed beautiful weather. Yeah right. They probably say that to all the geeks.
I flew back right after the show, so I didn’t have any time to see more of Seattle. But I have a feeling we’ll be back.
Next week I’m flying to NYC to do Live with Regis and Kelly. They’re doing a technology week. Bill Gates is on on Thursday 10/25 (XP day) and I’ll be on the next day, Friday 10/26. I’m going to show Regis a bunch of tech gadgets. Should be fun.
