Least Dangerous Game on FOX 9 News

I had some fun contributing to a story about Least Dangerous Game with Aric for a FOX 9 News segment on Friday night.


Here’s a link to the video

It was a pleasure to meet FOX reporter, Dawn Stevens. Overall, I think she put together a great summary of what the game is all about, and in incredibly fast time. I stopped by The Local for a couple beers after the shoot near the IDS, then started receiving text messages from friends while I was wrapping up a later dinner at Mission. I’m sticking to my theory that TV personalities look better in person than they do in their bio-page photos.

There was no need to rush home to watch it, since we don’t have a TV, but thanks to the good old Internet, I was able to catch it tonight.

It looks like one of Hannah’s tweets made it into the screen shot of my Treo on the FOX 9 site. The other two are from Aric, who’s saying, “I am am pretending to send out clues while they tape me. Neat.” and Ang, with, “Settled for tomato soup and Triscuits. Jealous?”

I could go for a Triscuit right about now.

I’m pretty darn sure this is the first time I’ve seen the word, “masturbatory,” on a newscast. It shows up when they pan over the About page of the LDG site.

I’ll be on Fox 9 Tonight

If you’re in the Minneapolis area, check FOX 9 tonight at . . . get this . . . 9:55pm if you want to see a few sound bites from me about people cyber squatting in coffee houses to take advantage of free WiFi.

I sat down with Jamie Reese from FOX to discuss this topic at an Eden Prairie Dunn Bros near the EP mall.

Unlike me, Jamie is beautiful in person compared to her web photo.

The cameraman who shot the interview recently won an award for the best work in the 5-state region. I hope he got my good side.

UPDATE: Here’s a link to the story. There is a link on that page to the video.
MyFox Twin Cities | Wi-Fi Squatters Take Seats at Cafes

Ed Kohler, author of the blog Technology Evangelist, has blogged about wi-fi squatters.

“They spend the whole day there but only spend three or four dollars worth of stuff for 8 hours of access,” he said. “That’s pushing the limit to a degree — and every company has a different policy for how they deal with that, whether they even perceive it as a problem or not.”

They left out the part when I said, “If I can’t get free WiFi with my coffee, the terrorists have won.”
