GeekBeat.TV – New media trailblazers produce show right in our own back yard, or in our own suburb north of Dallas, Texas at least. :-)

Soon after we finished eating, they gave the go ahead for everyone to go onto the field for a more up close and personal experience. And when I say “close”, I mean you could reach out and touch the balloons. (But don’t…you’ll get in trouble.) (more…)
