Intel & Televisa

Hola!! Today Andrew and I are in Mexico City meeting with Intel and Spanish media mogul, Televisa. We recorded today's Rocketboom ep as well as tomorrow's early so we could come down. This is my first time in this city, and I must say it really is so much fun. I had heard some horror stories about it before coming... but the city is really beautiful and the people are lovely.

Televisa is so forward thinking... it's amazing... they really "get it". Together with Intel they are launching a videoblogging contest for the entire Spanish-speaking world in order to encourage more people to vlog! Yay!! That's one of the reasons we came down, to help promote this fab contest. The winner receives a top of the line laptop, video camera, and web hosting for an entire year. There are also 2nd and 3rd place prizes. I will post a link to more info about the contest when one becomes available.

Russia & Sexy Sasha

Like shaky camera hands? Little blond girls with cats? Russia?

Then do I have the video for you!

I went to Russia with my brother, Andrew (the guy with the white t-shirt and black backpack-- the first human appearing in the video), in August. Here's some of what we saw. I think Andrew might be starting a videoblog of his own, which I am naturally psyched about... get to it Andrew! The music is a bit off tempo, but I kinda like it...

On a side note, who saw the Season finale of Curb? OMIGOD, right ;) ? Please, please tell me you watch Curb. When Sasha Baron Cohen appeared, I was like, ok-- that does it, icing on the cake.
