Porchlight Video
Just a thought from 16 September 2003 about .

I had a blast at Porchlight tonight. The place was packed, the drinks were stiff, and the stories were great.

I had a hard time with this one. One of my cardinal rules for Fray events has always been: Don't talk about the web. That's because we already know what it's like there. I want to know about your life.

So it was nice to tell a story that paid tribute to the guiding force that has carried me forward these past eight years. And thanks to some camera work by Heather, you can see my story here (11.5mb .mov).

Huge thanks to Arline and Beth for having me on the program! And don't forget to catch Beth on stage at Fray Day 7 San Francisco on October 4!

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Porchlight Video” that I wrote on 16 September 2003.

Before this, I wrote a little something called “Fray audio bonanza” on 15 September 2003. After this, I wrote “Meeting Tom” on 17 September 2003.
