Last night, Amy and I attended the live taping of the 85th episode of Diggnation. Diggnation is one of the properties of Revision3, and perhaps their most popular property (shout out to my colleague Mike Maples, an investor in Digg and Revision3). Diggnation is a weekly video podcast, hosted by Kevin Rose (co-founder of Digg) and Alex Albrecht. The hosts sit on a couch, drink beer, talk about some of the top stories submitted to the digg.com site, and generally crack me up. I find it quite entertaining. Thank goodness the FCC does not regulate video podcasts!
This particular show was held at the Beach Chalet Brewery and Restaurant in San Francisco. And, it was packed. Amy and I made a night of it. Ate some tasty seafood, enjoyed the sunset over the beach, drank some stout, and enjoyed the show.
The Laughing Squid folks wrote a blog article and took some great pictures at the event. Here's a sample:

And, the Discovery Channel was there taping with a nice, big HD camera. Not quite sure what they were planning to do with the footage, but I look forward to seeing it in bright HD on the home theatre.
Finally, here's a shot of my ugly mug (and half of Amy's pretty mug), captured by one of the attendees (licensing does not allow me to show it to you here; you'll have to click through).
We even scored a couple of free Diggnation T-shirts thrown out to the audience. Unfortunately, they were both of the female variety. Amy looks awesome in hers, but I can't quite pull off the chick T-shirt look. Kevin... Alex... Please send along a Large male T-shirt to me so that Amy and I can be a proper Diggnation couple in public!
I don't use digg.com. But, I do enjoy the show. Good times.
