Five years ago today…

I had retired from my job in Los Angeles and sold my house.  I had been looking at houses in WA, wanting to move to the PacNW.  I heard +Leo Laporte talk about hiring a board op and thought I’d stop by Petaluma to see if I could help out.

I was moving out May 1st and I didn’t want Leo to hire anyone before I got there, so I sent an anonymous email asking him to wait.  Got an affirmative response.

In between The Walls I found myself where the Mojave Desert meets the Colorado Desert. Nothing puts you in your place like watching the Milky Way Galaxy rise in a clear dark desert sky. Joshua Tree Monday, Wednesday and Thursday; Phoenix The Wall Tuesday.

Hope you're having a nice vacation. Hopefully TWiT won't fall apart while you're gone. :)

I had one week left in the job I retired from and one week left in my house in West Covina before I move up to WA.  +LeoLaporte and Dane Golden talk about hiring a new board op.

Leo talks to Dane about hiring TWiT employee #5 - 4/25/2009

I started to think that maybe I should stop by Petaluma on my way north...

I wouldn't mind seeing you host a regular segment, if not a show. Like This Week In TWiT History. TWITH. The abbreviated version may not roll off the tongue as cleanly when you say it, however.

Perhaps pull up archives from TWiT, The Screen Savers, Call For Help, and do a Daily Show-style short burst or barrage of clips of a similar theme to show evolution of an aspect of technology with a little narrative.

There's a photo contest at TalentHouse.com and the winner will get a photo-pass to a performance of The Wall by Roger Waters.  Please take a look at the submissions, and vote for mine!  Thanks!

TWiT Brick House History

The first in step the construction of the TWiT Brick House Studios was the demolition of red cubicles. You can see the camera used for the time-lapse movie in the upper right.

This picture would be excellent for an April Fool's joke: "We're demolishing the Twit Brickhouse Studios.
