Late Sunday night we recorded a quick video from the Washington DC set. We will meet with Ed Kelley, Mark Greene and Chris Casteel on Monday to go over format, answer questions and finish plugging things together. Maybe hit a Radio Shack.
David Jones, Scott Horton and I hit the National Press Building tonight. D.C. is very quiet on a holiday weekend, especially on a humid Sunday night. The streets were wet, but empty. Only the occasional tourist walking past. Amazing how many foreign languages and accents you overhear while here.
Jones and Horton have done a very nice job in hooking up the equipment for our set which will serve as our D.C. bureau. Reporters Chris Casteel and Mark Greene will have great tools to use for their video reports.
On a side note, I can report the Old Ebbitt Grill knows a thing or two about baking crab cakes.
David Jones and Scott Horton pouring over the menus at Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington DC?
Nope, both on their iPhones.
Yes, that’s a skull of a steer. Or something.
No drama into or out of Memphis. But the flight into Baltimore was a little choppy. After the Chicago and New York mid-air dramas, I’ve about had it with flying.
What is up with no free wifi at the airport? I’m hoping free wifi is the way of the world before long. So I plug in my MacBook and go through the steps of paying for a day pass to Boingo, the wifi network at WRWA. It gives me the “not compatible with Mac platform” nonsense and I log off.
I suspect it’s a Mac OS X version deal and that Boingo does recognize Mac. But here’s a question for you to consider? How many times have you traveled and seen the familiar white ear plugs of someone and their iPods? It’s almost annoying.
At NewsOK we look at our analytics and see a small percentage of Mac users, but that’s no excuse to ignore a segment of your customers.
Enough venting. The breakfast tortilla on the concourse is good.
