I was only told I was a finalist in the Network2.tv "How Do You Watch Internet TV" contest - I assumed I was 3rd place, just because I did :P
So I drove up with Amanda to the VON expo in San Jose, Chris Brogan made sure we got in and were comfortable.
Jeff Pulver begins to talk about the winners and he names off 3rd place... and it isn't me. And my heart begins to pound out of my chest. And it's strange cause it goes by very, very fast in the video, but I remember the time between him announcing 3rd place and 2nd place, was an eternity. When he said someone else's name for 2nd... my whole world started spinning.
Amanda (who is filming the second half of this video) was so excited she kinda forgot to pay attention to what she was filming... hence, I don't quite make it into frame the whole time.
When I wave to the crowd, I was waving at Clintus who shouted from off stage :)
After I walked off stage in shock, people were laughing cause I didn't know where to sit because the check was so large. I ended up finding a chair off to the side, and siting there in a daze wondering what the hell just happened.
