Caught Live on the Scobleizer Qik-Cast

At Hollywood and Highland, Outside Community Next conference, which is oddly being held in a nightclub, in a mall.

UPDATE: Check out my interview with Scoble, where I drill him on everything from the iinevitability of Microhoo to ideas on the next Twitter… HERE.

In the first video, I show off my Sierra Wireless 881U AirCard for AT&T that I just picked up. Hopefully bandwidth won’t be an issue when I use this, *ahem* but I’vebeen very impressed with it’s 1-2Mbps down and 1Mb up speeds on AT&T’s 3G network and it’s Mac compatibility. All I really want for Christmas is an N95 (or 96) but they don’t appear to be falling from the sky at H&H. Not yet at least.

Google Maps’ Streetview [Nearly] Completes LA

Per Zach’s post at LAist, I can now find my house on Google Streetview:

The quality of the images are much better too — here’s a great example of how ridiculous it is that my street is one-way: look at what the mailman has to do to get out the way of the Googmobile!

They did miss a couple of the smaller dead-end streets near me, but still — very cool. Now all I want is to be able to embed real-time traffic overlays!
