Thanks to New York Times columnist (and good friend) David Pogue for his heartfelt column in the Thursday New York Times Circuits section. [free registration required - but it's worth it]
David got it right with one exception. He writes:
In fact, G4TechTV is indeed in negotiations with Mr. Laporte about an increased role at the new network.
He's quoting a company spokesman, not me. I am not "in negotiations" with G4. We have a cordial relationship, but if they have plans for an increased role for me at the channel they're keeping it a secret. And you couldn't characterize our infrequent conversations as negotiations in any way.
I am, however, talking with a number of people about new TV shows. I'm hopeful something will come of that. I'll keep you posted when there's something more to say.
