Google Streetview South Side of Chi

This just gives the wrong impression of the South Side of Chicago — but it’s probably the best laugh I’ve had thanks to Google Maps Streetview. And to think, it’s mere blocks from Sox Park. Courtesy Good Magazine blog.

kitykity Interviews Me at SXSW

Nothing special about this — she regularly interviews people she runs into at convention and events but I figured I’d post it here. I first met Susan last year at the Vloggies Winnies, so I wasn’t surprised to find a camera thrust in my face within minutes of running into her in Austin. She asks about a crazy travel adventure and I tell her about my harrowing decision between taking the bus down the “death road” to the Mapajo Lodge in the middle of the Amazon Forest (Rurrenabaque, Bolivia) or the tiny government plane. Guess what I went with.
