I remember when you criticized digg for having two guys drinking on stage. Bad messagewas the impression. I'm not saying what's right. I'm having some wine right now.You have a very family friendly feed here.Moderators trying to respect deceny. Drinking was not appropriate if I recall. Where are you coming from? You guys are certainly under the influence.Have you changed your tune???? - Newell Unfried
Bwana I LOVE that - A Gunny named Slickback
See, this is why wine should be after the show :) If you're not part of an alcohol charged conversation, it sounds like jibberish :) - Bwana ☠
More John, less maven - Matthew
Bwana that's awesome lol. I may visit and rant just for the hell of it. - Michele
John does. He does everything - Jackson Pollock
Newell this is like Diggnation for Keven Rose's parents - A Gunny named Slickback

People with nothing to lose are free - Keith Barrett
The shows have lost something with the wine I'm sad to say - A Gunny named Slickback
*facepalm* - Josh Haley
Ya Bwana if they need alcohol for Twit to function they need to rethink - Greg
ok - bwana@bwana.org - Bwana ☠
They should pour themselves a big glass of "Tech News" - Matthew
I believe those guys that got nipped for Pirate Bay only got their limited convictions because the governments are wanting to change rules so that their activity is illegal, but realize that what laws at the time were not against them. Therefore, it's like saying "Sorry guys, we don't want you to do that in the future and we have to convict you to create precedent going forward." - Chris Dickens
what's everyones blog link? - scott
Bwana: thanks... I'll also check twitter - Keith Barrett
I think it is great, except it should be garyvee wine ;> - Jay Neff
I don't blog anymore my ife is too boring - A Gunny named Slickback

Perahps Gunny. However it could look like Gary's wine sponsorship has changed a shift in attitude.My sense that that's not Leo but it is all about perceptions isn't it. - Newell Unfried
FriendFeed rules supreme - Josh Haley

Good shirt John. Good shirt - Jackson Pollock
if I were leo's other advertisers I'd be ticked - A Gunny named Slickback
the creative whack pack app is kinda neat - Jay Neff
Jumping The Fonz - Johnny
There probably was no tech news this week - Francine Hardaway
Anyone want to bet who will be first to pass out? - Stephen Heron
Dont think the advertisers are going to want to be associated with tipsie peopel - Greg
tonights episode should be called HOT MESS - Chip Duford
Leo has advertisers standing in line Gunny :) I'm sure he'll manage - Bwana ☠
Watching a shark jump over gotomeeting - Josh Haley
leo will be first, lol - scott
Greg, advertisers only care if people respond to their ads - Chris Heath
I'd say having Winer, Calacanis, Scoble and Dvorak on one show, might be as close to jumping the shark as you can - Jackson Pollock
Woz? - Johnny
This episode has jumped the shark - Scott H
God bless John Hein - Jackson Pollock
Oh man. Get it together. - Tom Langston
Leo is toasted on wine. I can tell. CUT HIM OFF. - Chris Dickens

Gunny Got to tell you I just don't think This Week in Fun is fun.. Like Sarah. Just don't care for Martin.Just don't think it's worth my time. Hope they do well. - Newell Unfried
JCD is fillibustering twitter this show... - Chris Heath
I agree about martin Sargent. I never liked him - A Gunny named Slickback
Although as a purely audio podcast this would be a bit unsual - Keith Barrett
GotoMeeting works - I used it yesterday as a matter of fact *corporate gloat* - Bwana ☠
Scott; TWiT Episode 57 - Jackson Pollock

Ryan, yeah it's up above 10 comments - Chris Heath
Susan Boyle is tech news... it's valid - Bwana ☠
who cares, she wasn't signed. she's going to be a star if she wants to be. It's no more faked than American Idol, which is the biggest SHAM on TV - A Gunny named Slickback
viral video :) - Bwana ☠
was that sarcasm bwana? no? - Chris Heath
That was a joke, yes - Bwana ☠
Is that an Angels logo on the back of JCD's laptop? - Tom Langston
Tech pundits are quick to declare something dead - Bwana ☠
Gunny. What's really interesting about this show is with alcohol they really let their guard down. I'm not sure they would make the comments they do otherwise.Agree? - Newell Unfried
are any of them watching the friendfeed stream? their just talking away about non tech - scott
viral videos merit a mention and a clip i guess, if they're good - Chris Heath
leo checks it scott, I'm pretty sure - Chris Heath
Wonder if Simon owns part of the recording company - Greg
Paul Potts is the real deal! Susan Boyle is a flash in the pan. - Chip Duford
Wine is Leo's kryptonite - Bwana ☠
@tom: looks like it, wonder where he got that sticker, and do they have it Yankee flavor :) - scott
It takes away his impersonation powers - Bwana ☠
this is true Newell and I think my disgust with this comes from having alcoholic parents and dealing with them. I don't do well with lots of drunkeness - A Gunny named Slickback
Mrs. Doubtfire is so, so funny. Robin Williams is one of my most favorite comedians. - Chris Dickens
Leo - where are you getting all these knockout intelligent women in tech? They weren't around when I was growing up - Keith Barrett
what laptop sticker does she have? - scott
If everyone is entertained, and cried, does it really matter if it was set up? - Keith Barrett
This does happen though. - Jackson Pollock
Was it really that good?!? - Stephen Heron
@scott: I think it's based on a famous Japanese painting, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" - Tom Langston
no keith it doesn't - A Gunny named Slickback
LOL Keith Barrett. - Michele
i agree with JCD these types of shows are horrible, and probably all fixed too - Chris Heath
actually, it was a woodblock print. close enough. - Tom Langston
here is the REAL Susan Boyle story; like 5 years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Jackson Pollock
watch this one, and watch the reactions of the crowd and the judges ... they are behind him http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Chip Duford
Gunny -Agree. Ditto with drunk parents and friends. Maybe they should youtube the Andrew Johnston youtube singing Pie Jesu. Now that's inspiring. - Newell Unfried
man Kitchen Nightmares cracks me up - Bwana ☠
don't people know that reality tv is constructed in the editing room? Isn't this common knowledge? - jccalhoun
the uk hells kitchen is awesome with Marco Pierre White - Matthew
I think this story just makes torrents more popular - Matthew
i made a tweet about the beastie boys and they followed me within a few hours - Chris Heath
O2 in the UK seem to respond to most people who message them with queries and issues - Iain
Mostly about the iphone - Iain
The Adventureland story is almost 100% certainly fake. It was a set up. I have no doubt. - jccalhoun
jccalhoun, could be. they just more people to twitter about their movies - Matthew
Companies contact you if you mention them on twitter. Yet if you try and phone their support lines they try and get rid of you. - Ghworg
rofl - Jay Neff
LOL hahahah oh man...JCD... dude is just... wow - Bwana ☠
pure comedy - Bwana ☠
John's BS filter is at 100% today - Matthew
I had to close irc... the flood froze my client - Bwana ☠
Its also because twitter is public and in the news alot.. companies do not need bad press - Greg
Leo is absolutely right. Just review my old tweets to see my recent comcast issues - Keith Barrett
bwana chatzilla always holds up for me, you ever use it? - Chris Heath
I'm using Linkinus for twit irc on Mac now..but my main client is irssi... perhaps I should setup a profile for it there - Bwana ☠
until Twitter is monetized none of this stuff matters - A Gunny named Slickback
I've used Chatzilla before - Bwana ☠
Keith: Did Fred send you free schwag and give you a month free? - Jay Neff
customer support via twitter should be a beneficial add on to customers that companies should be aware of but not focus on... I think companies should monitor twitter for mentions of their company to realise the actual state of the way their company is perceived and then work on fixing it - Iain
Bwana, try one of the different IRC channels, like #unfiltered - Matthew
none of this matters. no one but Leo cares. - jccalhoun
LOLOLOL - Matthew
LOL hahahahahahah WOW! wine charged JCD is going nuts - Bwana ☠
This is going crazy! - Stephen Heron
burp - Chris Heath
The fact that companies are responding to users on Twitter better than their normal support channels tells me that they're afraid of advanced Internet users. We spend a lot of money on their products, and we also happen to have the squeekiest wheels when we get so completely ticked off when they screw up. - Chris Dickens
alcohol, Dvorak twitter blocks, canadians - it's a Trifecta - Steve Gillmor
She's bold though.... for a first time TWiTter (see how I did that?) she's doing a lot of talking - Bwana ☠

i did... back up top at the start of the show - Chris Heath
Ownd - Matthew
eh, irssi is my main... you can't pry it from my cold sweaty palms - Bwana ☠
*barf* - Johnny
good thing you're on twitter keith, i bet your neighbors didn't get that level of service ;-) - Chris Heath
How many hours this week has Leo devoted to talking about Ashton and twitter? If you add it all up I would bet it was at least 5 hours - jccalhoun
JCD is RAW hahahahah he's cracking me up man - Bwana ☠
Oh no ... Leo Exposed - Greg
It's always annoying when people do real work, and early adopters help clean it up, and then main stream takes credit for the discovery - Keith Barrett
Busted! - robby
Bwana: I love JCD - Keith Barrett
building irssi now bwana - A Gunny named Slickback
twollow.com - Jay Neff
lol oops - Jay Neff
Sam - It's the equivalent of airing dirty laundry in public. When the response is public, all B.S. seems to go away and words are chosen carefully... - Chris Dickens
LOL coocher... HAHAHAHA - Bwana ☠
*confused* - robby
story about not being able to unfollow: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17... - Chris Heath
pretty cool - Chris Heath
Leo is in such denial. He is not fine with Ashton being on Twitter or he wouldn't talk about him every single day this week. - jccalhoun
How did we get here again? - Bwana ☠
A minute ago we were avoiding Twitter, now we're in a Twitter orgy - Bwana ☠
Bad JCD... you got sucked in man. - Bwana ☠
Yes we are :P - Michele

There's your Android Chris - Bwana ☠
Good some proper tech news! - Stephen Heron

i'm going to really think hard about android when my iphone contract is up - Chris Heath
Reminds me of a Facebook visualization that I saw a few years ago. Although, it says I should be following people I currently am... - Tom Langston
The iPhone is too expensive for me and the G1 is an affordable alternative. - Stephen Heron
I have a G1... love it. - Mark
g1 battery life would be a big issue with me - hopefully there will be more phones then - Chris Heath
is Lisa still there? lol - robby
I'd get a Pre before a G1... - Bwana ☠
JCD is quite taken by her - Keith Barrett
Keith - I warned them not to look in her eyes - Bwana ☠
I absolutely LOVE my BlackBerry 8900. The sweetest BlackBerry ever made. - Chris Dickens
Bwana: I can't say I wouldn't be as well if I were there - Keith Barrett
Wobble - Josh Haley
Okay, so here's my soupbox -- iPhone OS (iPhone and iPod Touch) is so so cool, but I have to say that it's not "right" for a phone. BlackBerry is so much better. The iPod Touch is a perfect companion where I can do random other stuff when I'm close to WiFI and "communicate" with my phone from anywhere in the world. :-) - Chris Dickens
No auto focus I believe is what is stopping it. - Stephen Heron
I love the paid version of mlb app - scott
I'm looking forward to the Pre being released - Iain
whatever happened to the guy who had the cnnbrk account? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn... - Chris Heath
Anyone know how to change your delicious username? - Jay Neff

The N95 battery life has been hugely improved with firmware updates - Iain
Lol. John keeps shoving wine at her - Keith Barrett
It's not the wine ... Becky Worley and JCD and Leo did a TWIT with wine and it was GREAT! - Chip Duford
that show was good chip - A Gunny named Slickback
I think this was just too much wine. - Stephen Heron
The Worley episode was GREAT! She needs to return! - Keith Barrett
was that the "twitter" episode? - A Gunny named Slickback
no ... there was more wine drunk on that show than this one - Chip Duford
correct, Gunny - Chip Duford
gunny it was the one before... that was last week's - Chris Heath
Chip - I was on a wine show, but they didn't drink it all before the show - Bwana ☠
I downloaded that from odtv.me - A Gunny named Slickback
John is 'in love' - Chip Duford
there was another one with the guy from Scam School that was also pretty good - Chip Duford
that one was good too - A Gunny named Slickback
also had wine - Chip Duford
that was good too chip - Chris Heath
Dvorak LOL - Bwana ☠
It's not the wine ... it's the people - Chip Duford
it's the wine and the people and the heat and the stories ... there's a lot of things that go into it... - Chris Heath
but ... it's NOT just the wine .. the wine does not need to go - Chip Duford
Well that ad makes me hate Canada - Bwana ☠
I don't think John and Shira and wine make a good TWIT. - Stephen Heron
whereas before I liked it - Bwana ☠
chip, that's not what i was saying - Chris Heath
no no ... not pointing fingers ... just making a point, based on previous TWITS - Chip Duford
John is aroused, I think. - Chip Duford
I love Cali Lewis - A Gunny named Slickback
speak for yourself Leo - Bwana ☠
:) - Bwana ☠
it was a bad connotation 20 years ago - A Gunny named Slickback
geek does not = NERD - A Gunny named Slickback
I believe Leo is confusing a nerd with geeks. - Chris Dickens
I thought Geeks bit the heads off Chickens? - Chip Duford
A geek bites heads off of chickens in carnies - Bwana ☠
next topic please - Bwana ☠
The word leo wants is nerd - A Gunny named Slickback
Ok, jumped the shark confirmed. - Matthew
People get millions for what I use to get beat up for in high school now - Keith Barrett
I guess this is tech talk.. right? :P - Michele
She has stolen Geek! And I'll give it to her ;) - Chip Duford
neo maxxy zoom dweeby - A Gunny named Slickback
Being excited about tech is not enough to be a geek, but making it your life does - Keith Barrett
Leo - I am (very close) to your timeframe and I am a geek, not a nerd. You're describing a nerd. :-) - Chris Dickens
high school was what 10 years ago for her? - A Gunny named Slickback
nice use of liver JCD - Bwana ☠

omg, JCD is literally making me lol - robby
NO to ijustine - Jay Neff
not a geek - Chris Heath
They are geek groupies, not geeks - Keith Barrett
we need a new terminology for these web-celeb 'geeks' - Chris Heath
these are just popular people on the web - Matthew
man I wish I was in the chat room - I can't get in - Keith Barrett
Some strive for Geekness, some have Geekness thrust upon them. - Chip Duford
My entire living room is a LAN... (profile plug.. check my workspace pic) - Michele
This show needs to finish. - Stephen Heron
thanks JCD - Bwana ☠

Live show is more entertaining imo. - Michele

scoble's ff discussion about it: http://beta.friendfeed.com/scoblei... - Chris Heath
He was definitely reading, you can see his eyes moving down in the vid. I think they handled the fiasco pretty well though - Jay Neff
To suggest that any of the hosts have anything intelligent to say would be a stretch. What a shame. Think I'll rethink my podcast choices and go listen to an Audible book. - Newell Unfried

TWiT 191 - Nuking the Jumped Shark in a Fridge - Chris Heath
Ashton is not bigger than the Pirate Bay verdict - jccalhoun
I think TWiT is finally wrapping up. - Nolan Alston
This is the freakiest show i've ever seen on twit live. - J.R. Luppold
Sorry Leo, but this really was a pretty boring episode. Guests weren't near tech-related enough (aside from Dvorak), so neither was the conversation. Plus, too much wine, and too much talking over one another (from Shira especially). I might have to finally pull out the "worst TWiT ever" card. Still looking forward to next week, though! - Staticharge
John's trying to get her even drunker - Matthew
there's been freakier JR - Chris Heath
Get Becky Worley back on!!! - Chip Duford
Yeah, Becky Worley was awesome! - Mike Mylenbusch
only? - Bwana ☠
I'm with Staticharge. Too much talking over others. - Dave Wallace
Nuking the fridge and Twit #191 - Greg

Leo, this show must be cut if not scrapped - Jim Bednarz
keep it real - Jay Neff
The question is not what to cut, but what to keep - Phil Essing
sell an uncut version - James Beake
the uncut show will be at odtv.me - A Gunny named Slickback
if you ask me ... Dvorak was the problem this week - Chip Duford
Leo, you can't edit jumping the shark - Matthew
i would say only lightly edit it ... there's probably 20 or more small edits that could be made - Chris Heath
This makes me yearn for the good old days of the Yellow Lasers episode... - jccalhoun
jccalhoun woz episodes were always good - Chris Heath
Light editing would be ideal. Cut out the jumbled parts with everyone talking over each other. - Michele
I definitely want to see another episode with Becky Worley and Dvorak. They're great guests, and you can actually discuss tech with them. - Staticharge
DON'T LET THE LISTENERS CONTROL THE CONTENT!!! - Chip Duford

I would definately watch the live stream more if those two ladies appear more. :P - Phillip Stewart
TWiT 191: Dvorak Plays With Dolls. - Chip Duford
Leo, is that a chocolate box, or an iPod/phone by Shira's glass??? I hope she didn't forget anything! - Gabe
John fed Shira a lot of wine - Chip Duford
Dang Leo, are the sponsor ads only for podcasts, you should start charging for live feed reads. - Matthew
14,000 viewers during the live broadcast - Steve Hampton
Leo I am in Buenos Aires and BITGRAVITY was a lot better than USTREAM that freeeeez much - Johni Fisher
My title for the TWiT says it all ... Drovak Plays With Dolls - Chip Duford
It's not the wine ... You, Becky, and John C had wine and a great show - Chip Duford
Put on a happy face? - Chip Duford
Leo, I can see how busy you are, but could you give us a quick status update on UGM please? :) - Gabe
I think it was the This Week in Shira Lazar show. All I heard was ME ME ME TALK ABOUT ME - Max Strzelecki
I must be in the minority. I really loved this episodes, but that's why I like TWiT... its great variability and personalities. Also, Grumpy Lisa is awesome and we need more Mostly Grumpy Lisa :D - Bob M. Montgomery
Leo, you should have a new show TWiSM (this week in social media) and put all these social media personalities there (or have them on net@nite). The last few shows 188/189 were great, its always been about your (& guests) opinion on tech stories but this show (191) really went downhill rapidly with hardly any meaningful discussion of any tech stories. - Jayesh
Listening to this episode was painful. :/ - Christian Collins
wow new low for twit wtf was Shira Lazar doing on this show? calling herself a "New Media Maven" and being a "pioneer" I just threw up in my mouth. - adolfo foronda
Unfortunately I'll never get that 1 hour 33 minutes and 54 seconds of my life back (I know, my fault, no-one *made* me listen to the bitter end). I don't think adding the wine to TWiT these past several weeks has been a good idea. - Steve
Yes I'm not so sure about the wine thing as well. If John would spend less time arguing about covering twitter news and just let Leo get on with it, the twitter news would pass much more quickly rather than being hampered on - Andy
I completely agree, Andrew. The wine is getting old and JCD complaining about Twitter talk is getting worse than the Twitter talk. - Joel R
Less models and more real journalists with interesting opinions. Becky Worley hit it out of the park and Molly is good as well. - JustAFeed2000
Joined just to comment. Love TWIT, but NO more more Shira please, ever. So full of BS and meaningless words. Can't she let anyone else talk, ever? Ugh. Hated it. Will listen again but actively avoid shows with her on it. - Ian
I mirror Ian's statement. Shira was intolerable. I have listen to just about every single TWiT and this is the first one I have stopped before finishing. I made it about 30 minutes in before stopping in disgust. I will not tune in if she is on. Leo, I know you take our advice with a grain of salt, but please don't ask her back on again. - Will Szczepaniak
best infotainment show since i started watching ;) <3 - skyjumpy
Can all this "eye candy" commentary cease? It's sexists and insulting. Clearly, if that's your assessment, you weren't paying attention. Lisa Bettany has a master's in linquistics, which means in all likelihood she's brighter than any of us on this thread in a dozen different ways. She's also a talent photographer, gadget lover, solid writer and just happens to have done some modeling, among many other non-tech things. Her breadth of experience and her success doesn't eliminate her from consideration because she's beautiful; heck, it gives her a far better perspective on tech in the real world, instead of inside the bubble inside which most of the guests live/work. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
Leo: I've listened to TWiT since episode 1. I'm getting sick and tired of the Twitter talk. Please, please, please, please(enough please) of the Twitter talk!! - Kevin Adair
Bob, we have every right to talk about looks if that is what we chose. Its not insulting. Its neither "sexist" at most its "genderist". - HateBadDesign
wow... a bit late there with the comment? - Chris Heath
