I had a great experience Monday afternoon visiting The Screen Savers, one of the top programs on the Tech TV network. Why was I on TV? Patrick Norton, co-host of the show, interviewed me about my latest book, Wicked Cool Shell Scripts, and though you’d think that it wouldn’t be very interesting to talk about – and demonstrate – shell scripts on a TV show, we had a good time.
I have to say that during the earlier segment of the show they demonstrated a 3D immersive wargame called Far Cry, and then Patrick and I discussed whether the 3D immersive graphically rich version of hangman from my book – minus the 3D immersive graphically rich part, of course, since it’s just ASCII – would be a good demo. We decided probably not.
Just as fun: my book is now in their bookcase if you have eagle eyes or happen to be on their set in San Francisco: fourth book from the left. 🙂
And if anyone has a pointer to an online streaming video segment of the show, I’d sure appreciate being able to point to it here.
I have been so busy this week with work that I have all of this weeks episodes still sitting on my Tivo unwatched.
Was it Monday’s episode? (just so I know where to go first!) 🙂
Yes. I think we were 35 minutes into the hour. See what you think, Mike, and let us know! 🙂
Sheesh… I’m only now catching up with my blogging and email – you must have thought I was really not with it when I saw you – so, belated w00t! to you!
I am sorry to say that Time-Warner does not carry Tech TV anymore, so I no longer am able to watch The ScreenSavers.
That’s because TechTV is, well, no more. 🙁
