Uncov, a blog similar to Valley Wag reports on Silicon Valley and the social scene in tech. They had a party at Mars Bar in San Francisco’s SOMA district on Friday night that I attended with my friend, Dori, who is visiting this week from Florida. Earlier that day I had put on my life cast schedule that I would broadcast at 9pm PST.
I messed up and didn’t come on when I said I would; I was 2 hours late. This is the first time I have made the mistake of posting a time to go live and not being there when I said I would. I don’t know if the other life casters can relate, but I would like to know if anyone else has made the same mistake and what they did to make up for it.
After one beer and a drunken interview with Jonathan Abrams (below) I turned on my life cast and Dori and I left the party.
Apparently the EVDO wireless Internet access was choppy in SOMA that night. According to Benthedude and Bigdrop, the stream was choppy:
11:41 benthedude: “lag much?”
11:42 bigdrop: “yah, when on the move it really sucks.”
I had a conversation with Dori about how the Muni doesn’t regularly check your pass. It’s not like the Subway in New York where you can only board by passing through gates, it’s just based on a regular inspection of your tickets that seldom comes. In this conversation either the stream cut in and out to only let everyone hear one part or Scott was just listening to one part of the conversation, but either way it does not represent the truth.
11:42 scott: “sarah is a muni fare-evader.”
11:44 bigdrop: “what the heck does that mean?”
11:44 scott: “she was talking about not having to pay the bus fare”
I have always paid my Muni fare. There is not a time where I board the Muni, train, with out paying the fare! it’s only $1.50 and usually I buy the month passes. Scott goes on:
11:44 scott: “now she is making fun of her viewers”
11:45 scott: “someone here donated to her?”
11:47 bigdrop: “i haven’t”
In all due respect, Scott, you are jumping to conclusions and obviously don’t trust me. If the feed was as bad as Benthedude and Bigdrop said then you would have not jumped to conclusions and waited to ask me about it when I joined the chat at 11:58pm. Before this incident Scott was a loyal commenter rating just below iguy in my stats by Mark.
I would never mock my viewers, though laughing and not making fun. My viewers from life casting are giving me more opportunities than I ever imagined and I am building meaningful relationships. All I have to say to everyone who watches is thank you for your love and support; I feel privileged you care.
