When I was picking up my badge at the registration table at BarCampBlock on Saturday afternoon, free beer in hand, I ran into Terry Chay, the “ultimate social bee,” who flits around Web 2.0 events, tirelessly cross-pollinating, until everyone knows everyone. He immediately introduced me to Sarah Meyers, of Gawker Media (parent of Valleywag), and, with a wink and a smile, he quickly disappeared into the throng. I was left alone with the winsome Sarah and her video recording rig.
Now, I like a video camera as much as (if not more than) the average marketer. But this was Valleywag. Would I be skewered like the guy from Powerset (which I thought was hilarious when I watched it from the comfort of my office)?
Today, I found out. Here’s the post. And below are two screengrabs. How did I do? Comment there, here, or in Plaxo Pulse (if you’re in my business network) to let me know. From the screenshot, it looks like it was really sunny (or else I need way more sleep).
It could have been worse. What didn’t make it onto the web? A piece of pretzel flying out of my mouth. (Thanks, Sarah!)
Or me yelling, “Captain Morgan isn’t your friend!” (He really isn’t, after all.)
Which is it. Butterfly or bee?
Here is a picture of Sarah interviewing you…

Thanks, Terry! And here’s a different angle on the scene that you captured. Much nicer view. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tychay/1200383147/in/photostream/
