  • Nick

    I wish I was there :(

  • Franz

    OMG.

    Rob, that is a fantastic idea. Have a static camera film the phones go by, and put captions under the phones with their names on it, upload it to youtube!

    Did you bring any gifts back for us? I want one of those android pins.

  • Bob

    One thing that is missing from that event is our massively HUGE sculptures like the ones we made for Google’s front lawn: http://www.viddler.com/explore/customcreations/videos/24/ Oh well. There’s always next year.
