Geek Pioneering at Bioneers

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Bioneers is a sustainability, social justice and fix the world sort of conference that takes place in 16 cities simultaneously with the central soyload taking place in Marin County, just north of San Francisco. GETV’s Sarah Pullman was there seeking enlightenment for us all. Episode links: Bioneers, Sarah Pullman, Nina Simons, Marin Biofuels, Ecobabes, Alex […]

McVlogger Daniel McVicar Wants You to Make Media

Saturday, October 21st, 2006

When our new boss Rorbert Scoble said he’d had dinner with a great vlogger who’s also "some guy who’s on a soap opera," Irina’s ears perked up.  Turns out he’s on a soap opera that Irina and her sister have watched since the beginning. ("Vera, why they show same movies every day from noon to […]

Mark Wants You to Watch CuTube

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

This isn’t the first time I’ve grabbed Mark Cuban in the hall of a hotel to interview him, and it won’t be the last! And I must say, Cuban is as gracious a webebrity as GETV has ever met. Not only did he shake the hand of every member of the Consumer Electronics Association who […]

What does a 24-year-old physics student have to do with running celebrity-focused ajax-yummy site Kevo? GETV flew all the way to Los Angeles to find out. We met up with late-blooming geekstar Will Jessup (he discovered his Java genius only a few years ago) and asked him to show us his very LA-LA-land labor of […]

We Got Questions, Ninja Got Answers

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

If GETV could admit to being a groupie of any vlog, it would be Ask A Ninja, since being a groupie of a ninja is an honor. And being killed by one is too. But Irina’s not quite ready to be chopped up into little pieces, so instead she fired off question after question at […]

Yahoo Locks in Hackers for 24 Hours

Friday, October 6th, 2006

Yahoo!, that benevolent purple and yellow Internet behemoth, opened her doors to hungry hackers of all stripes for 24 hours last weekend. The result was over 500 pizzas eaten, 100+ dozen Krispy Kremes demolished, untold gallons of Rockstar, RedBull and coffee liquified, one major rockstar played out and over 50 API mashup projects completed. Here’s […]

Let’s Hack This Beck

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006

Who knew that a megalo-uber-etoile like Beck Hansen would entertain just a few hundred geekerati this past weekend (the likes of dotben and Joyce Parks) at Yahoo Hack Day 2006, but alas, it’s true. To the amazed delight of childlike adults dressed in all manner of t-shirt and jean combos, one of the best musicians […]
