A few days ago I attended the taping of The Martha Stewart Tech Show. Martha, aka @MarthaStewart, says she has been ‘tweeting from the beginning’ and with over 1.5 million followers on twitter – it shows! Martha was one of the first celebrity moguls to clasp onto the social networking trend, and never look back. Facebook, Twitter, blogging, TwitPic, Twecipes: Martha embraces it all! So when I was chosen to attend the special bloggers and tweeters-only tech show (where I was invited to bring my laptop and cell phone to tweet LIVE!), I packed up my Mac and alerted my ‘tweeps’ to tune in.
Watch Today! The Tech show airs today Oct 2nd, check your local listings or visit Martha’s show website for video clips. The techie-genius guest lineup included Twitter co-founder (and fellow healthy vegetarian school lunches advocate) Biz Stone, @Biz, Facebook co-founder (he’s only 25!) Chris Hughes. David Pogue, NY Times. Heather Cabot, Yahoo! And Nick Douglas, author. It was a show like no other, truly innovative. TV show tapings may never be the same again. Ahead, check out a few of my in-studio photos and my complete @lunchboxbunch Live Tweeted, In Studio transcript of the show…
Show Guests: Biz Stone, Twitter co-founder. Chris Hughes, Facebook co-founder. David Pogue, NY Times Tech Columnist. Heather Cabot, Yahoo! Web life Editor.
