Washington

The World Tour trudges along. Babak and I took the fast Acela train down to Washington DC and checked into the Crystal Gateway Marriott.

Nice turnout in Arlington today: about 150 people.

This Thursday, in Austin, at 5:30 Central Time, Jim and Ossie from NewTek are working on getting a live stream going so you can watch the demo as it happens. To get a high-speed internet connection in the meeting room, we have to pay the hotel an extra $100. After all the other hotel bills, that actually sounds kind of reasonable, believe it or not.

Anyway, the live stream is going to be in WMV (Windows Media) format. The URL for it will be here. A couple of days later I’ll get the flash version up if you have any problems with the stream or want to watch it later.

After the demo we managed to break the automated check-in machines at the Delta airlines check-in counter, trying to move to an earlier flight. Eventually a nice human at the counter straightened it out.

Now in Atlanta. See ya!
