Mostly Lisa & the New Media Expo in Las Vegas

Aug 13 2008

Tomorrow, I will be heading off to Las Vegas with Team Viddler for the New Media Expo. I’m really excited about hanging out with Viddler, the cool people that created my favourite video platform, and meeting loads of uber media people.

I need to catch some serious zzzs tonight as I will need my stamina during the shenanigans iJustine, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Sarah of Pop17 will inevitably get up to.

Follow me on twitter, viddler, flickr and the official NME site.

Is anyone else going to the New Media Expo? Hope to see you there!

PS If you know some awesome/cool/fun amazing things I should do whilst in Vegas, gimme a shout below.

  1. You did finally get an iPhone?

    I’m shocked there wasn’t a big announcement about it :P

  2. Gary Vaynerchuck is awesome!
    All the best!!!

  3. Sweet! You’re going to be in Vegas? That’s awesome! I totally want to meet you. Just once. That’d be awesome to the max.

    Okay, so here’s a little list of awesome stuff you should do when in Vegas:
    - Visit the Fashion Show Mall (they have an Apple Store). To get there just go straight down Spring Mountain towards the strip, you’ll drive right by it.
    - If you haven’t already seen it, Freemont Street Experience. It’s not totally amazing, but it’s pretty cool *once*. And there’s a bit of shopping and lots of cool stuff to film, like artists and musicians live, and I think there’s even some of those whatchyamacallem male models >.>
    - Go to a buffet dinner at a hotel that isn’t on the Strip. The Red Rock has a nice buffet, even though it is a bit more expensive than the other hotels. The Suncoast is nice, too, and The Rampart Hotel’s buffet has a chocolate fountain with marshmallows and strawberries for dipping in it :D
    - Pool Party! Everybody has a pool. I have a pool, you could come to my place. Or you could go to The Hard Rock, I think every Sunday is Rehab, a super giant pool party for only 21+… but yeah.
    - There’s also a GIANT SOUVENIR STORE, it’s really huge, and has lots of cool stuff that says Las Vegas on it for real cheap.
    - The Dancing Waters at The Bellagio is a water show at one of the hotels at the strip. It’s pretty, and can make for good film. Also, The Sirens of T.I. is my favorite show, at Treasure Island, it’s about pirates and their shenanigans with the sea seductress ladies. It’s hot.
    - Wii, Fooseball (sp?), Pool & Hot Tub, Yummy Food, a Big Screen T.V., a Cute Dog, HBO on Demand, and a few other awesome things all are available at my house, for free no charge. Feel free to stop by ;)

    So yeah. Just shoot me an e-mail if you have any other questions ’bout Lovely Las Vegas. I can pretty much take you anywhere except 21+ joints. Which is pretty fail, but whatever.

    :D

  4. My girlfriend and I were sitting behind you during at Leo’s TWiT Live broadcast this morning. The branding on the back of your shirt gave you away – mission accomplished. ;)

  7. It was so much fun! I have been away from the internet the whole time!! I hope you have a safe flight home to Vancouver. I love that city!!!

    Great to meet you too.
