The Drill Down team (Muhammad Saleem, Lidija Davis, Reg Saddler, and of course, myself, Andrew Sorcini) will be at Blogworld New Media Expo 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada this year. We’ll be doing a LIVE show for the Blogworld exhibition floor audience on Friday, October 16th at 4PM. Come see us, then hang out with us afterward for drinks and dinner! I’ll update this post as details emerge and keep it sticky.
Update: What would you like us to discuss at Blog World Expo?
Use the comments below to let us know what you’d like to hear us talk about in our first live show. We’ll cover the topics you want to hear about.
There’s no show this week, as I’m trying to get an early jump on Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego, where I expect to post at least a couple of reports from the field. Stay tuned here for updates and subscribe to my Audioboo feed here or on iTunes for instant iPhone updates. Our regular show will commence again next Friday July 31st, at 8:30 PST on Ustream. If you’re going to be at ComicCon, connect with me via Twitter, and we’ll hook up IRL.
UPDATE: Everready colleague JD Rucker has agreed to step in for another rousing live episode of The Drill Up, the show hosted in a way only he can. See you tonight, 8:30 PST on Ustream. Here’s tonight’s talking points (amongst anything else JD wants to cover).
