Last week, we shot an episode of WallStrip. Howard has been chasing me to do this for quite some time, and the truth is, we simply didn’t have space until we moved into larger quarters in September.
The show is up today, and fortunately, they edited out some of the really dumb things I said (Is calling someone who works on Wall Street a communist really all that libelous?). We shot prior to the Sub-Prime rescue plan being announced, so that is coincidental. Any references to my going on an enraged machine gun spree — and there were several — were removed in light of the mall shootings. Also, they edited out most of the profanity (F*&%$ing CBS!).
Oh, and I asked the cameraman to pull back a little bit (How do you feel about Cleveland?) so you can blame him for the horrific close ups . . .
Behind the scenes: Here’s the set up for the shoot held in our office:

Lovely Lindsey (note the intense concentration):
Love the boots!
Congrats to my pal Paul the K on his new web TV gig with Yahoo:
Yahoo TechTicker To Go After CNBC Crowd: The show will be called TechTicker, and it launches
in January. The goal is to attract the CNBC crowd – people who want to be
immersed in finance news all day long. The hosts include Henry Blodget (Silicon Alley Insider), Sarah Lacy (Business Week columnist) and
Paul Kedrosky, plus one additional person who
has yet to be named. The team will produce 10-20 original segments per week day,
which will be shown live on the site. When live content isn’t streaming, old
content will show on a loop.
Look out, Howard, they are coming after you!
