Don’t worry, after I finished uploading I had my wife watch it and my wife said, “Honey, it is kind of funny but it came out kind of dorky”!

What a laugh! Probably true too, right?

I always wondered what the Google Bot looked like — frightful!

Great video and great idea.
Even better, I saved $2000 passing on the SES conference and checking your blog.

Thanks everyone for the comments I had a lot of fun making it.

Glen, I basically bought some foam board to make the stage area and then shot the video takes – downloaded it to my computer and then edited and did the voice over work with Studio 8 which is about 4 years old and doesn’t even work on my new Vista machine.

Studio is so easy to use that even after years of not using it I could produce this video pretty quick.

I got a call from a friend that attended the real session on paid links this afternoon and he said they played my video before the session started!
