Hey look, it's me on NBC! Well, it's the local News in the San Francisco Bay Area (even though I live in Portland), but it's coverage!
Marianne Favro, the Health Reporter from NBC11 contacted me for an interview after hearing about Twittering My Diabetes , so I went down to the local NBC Affiliate and recorded a bunch of footage.
Of course the footage they used was the least awesome, including me saying (at one point during the 90 minutes) that diabetes "is wicked hard, and doesn't get any easier." It's magical how that kind of quote can get pulled out of an hour and a half of raw footage and make me sound like an idiot. ;)
Anyway, it turned out OK. The only major glitch is when they showed my Glucagon (sugar shot for major lows) and called it Insulin, but who notices that but me?
Go check out the Video up at NBC11 with the creative title: Diabetic uses Twitter.com. It also featured Biz Stone, one of the co-creators of Twitter.
Action Item and Note to Self: Come up with new Web 2.0 name like "Biz Stone" or "Guy Kawasaki", as "Scott Hanselman" is very Web 1.5. Any ideas?
Scott Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. I am a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
