    The Streamys Awards Shine A Spotlight On Webseries!

    The 1st annual Streamy Awards were held last night in Los Angeles to honor kick-ass awesomeness for original web content. It was an excellent event that helped validate the efforts and creativity of those participating in original online videos. Congrats to all the winners all the good people who put this show together. I think it was a huge success.

    The nominees, winners and everything you need to know about The Streamys can be found HERE.

    The after party at Palomar's really was a blast. I was happy to see a bunch of people I knew and that people had been checking out The party reminded me of a Hollywood-themed Bar Mitzvah, which I mean in the highest of compliments. The one beer I had was delicious and the snacks went pretty quick.

    I wish I had taken some more pictures, but I was too busy having fun and schmoozing it up.

    eGuiders TV Web Extensions Go Live!

    We just launched a new feature to the site today called the TV Web Extension Guide.

    I'm also experimenting with writing this post center justified.
    I thinks it's going pretty good so far.

    We've been getting some good feedback and will continue to add shows to this one-stop shop for people who want to discover what their favorite TV shows are doing with online content.


    While I'm on my promotional kick,
    Sign up for the eGuiders newsletter and get some good karma points.

    The NY Post picked up the feature and gave it a little love.

    Back From SXSW: What A Long, Awsome Trip It's been!

    I'm finally getting settled and back into the work groove after 5 days of intense, mind-expanding conversations, introductions and celebrations in Austin.

    It's true that I Twittered more than I ever Twittered in my life and was partially responsible for crashing the AT&T servers. Whoops.

    While I did attend a handful of panel discussions and keynote addresses, I think the most interesting aspect of the SXSW conference was meeting people in the convention center hallways, the introductions at the parties and random conversations that were popping up everywhere...

    The highlight of the trip for me was hanging out at the Studios where they were streaming live video all day and evening long. This is where I was pulled into a panel with Jeff "The Dude" Dowd and Robert Scoble. Jeff is the real life Big Lebowski (Jeff helped launch the Cohen Bros first film, Blood Simple & is one of the founders of the Sundance Institute). Robert is a social media pioneer and celebrity blogger / photographer. After our discussion that night, we hit some great parties and met a ton of wonderful people.

    It was so powerful to be in a place where everyone with similar interests and passions converged to discuss, share and celebrate the web.

    Here are a couple of pics from Robert Scoble. I'll post another blog post soon about some other adventures and tweets from SXSW.
