Chatting with Leo Laporte about the early days at Tech TV, how it started, carrot cake, microphones, etc. I didn’t know anyone out there was recording this. Thank you to Neil Oosten for finding it on the web, and to the original poster for recording it.
June was another busy month on the road. While in SF we squeezed in a trip 35 minutes north of the Golden Gate bridge to Petaluma, the home of Leo Laporte’s new-media empire. Leo is a technology broadcaster, author and entrepreneur.
After working on MSNBC’s The Site (Emmy award winner) and creating the Screen Savers for TechTV (1998-2004), he currently hosts a national radio show Leo Laporte:The Tech Guy on 100 stations for Premiere Radio Network. Leo started the “This Week in Tech Netcast Network” from the TWIT cottage in Petaluma, CA.
Brian Brushwood is incredible. Watch his amazing demo reel.
His magic rocks and he’s a just a great human being to know. Jim’s rule #4: The most talented people are always the nicest. He’s a fairly regular guest host on TWIT.
Dawn and I stopped off at the Petaluma, CA Whole Foods store bakery and arrived at the TWIT Cottage with a killer Carrot Cake, which we all dove into. Thank you Leo for being such a gracious host. You deserve all the good things happening to you. Nice to finally meet in person.
