Where’s Om Today? Pier Screenings Sizzled

It has been an exhausting two weeks. First there was the Brainstorm Tech Conference down in Half Moon Bay, then a panel discussion at the MobileBeat conference, followed by a pit stop to the TechCrunch Party (see photo), a visit to the Microsoft Campus up in Redmond on Monday, and quick visits with some startups down in Silicon Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It ended yesterday with our first NewTeeVee Pier Screenings of 2008. What a fun event it was — from the video selections to the popcorn and heat lamps — not to mention the fantastic support of the video fans, who showed up in large numbers. (See photos from Joey & Liz’s wrap-up post.) Thanks to everyone who showed up, and to our sponsors, who made the screenings happen. We hope that you will join us in Los Angeles, New York and of course, back again in San Francisco for our final show.

The screenings last night were an awesome team effort. Nothing makes me prouder than seeing my dream turn into reality as the result of everyone putting their heart and soul into the work.

Speaking of the team, Stacey is keeping an eye on things today. I am going to take some time off and visit my cardiologist for a routine check-up. (Have you made an appointment get a check-up from your doctor yet?) After that, I want to spend some time pondering all the information that I’ve gathered over the past few days before I put it all together in posts that will be useful to our readers.

Of course, some time needs to be spent reading other blogs. By the way, I am loving Robert Scoble these days, because he is writing fewer — but more meaningful — posts. Ditto for fellow hack Mathew Ingram, who has a unique and different take on the hothouse we call Silicon Valley.

Later tonight, I am meeting with the folks organizing the Start Conference next week, and then onto a big bash at my buddy Jared Kim’s company, WeGame.

So if you don’t see me blogging, don’t think I’m slacking off. I’m just thinking!
