Veronica Belmont and Patrick Norton treated the crowd at the Web 2.0 conference to a live taping of the super popular Tekzilla show. Before the taping the two offered some interesting behind the scene tidbits regarding TV (apparently clapping fast and higher up on your body than normal sound better on TV), who knew?
Evan Williams founder of Twitter dropped by, and offered two memorable gems. when Veronica inquired “What advice do you have for startups” Evan with tongue firmly inserted in his cheek offered the sage advice “Do something awesome.” The answer, however dry recieved a nice chuckle from the audience.
Throughout the show, and while reviewing different product (photo printers etc), the hosts took video questions sent in by viewers and kept track of a lucky attendee’s site redesign in real time by web designers headquartered in New York. This aspect of the show was a bit of a dud considering by shows end the site was really not very impressive and received the appropriate reaction from the live audience.
All in all it was a great experience, and fun to watch the “behind the scenes” action for the taping. It was impressive to see just how knowledgeable they both are. They’ve certainly done their homework for each product they review, and you can feel that passion in Patrick’s answers. This guys loves what he does, and that’s contagious.
