I've been a regular guest on NBC's Press:Here since the first episode with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. If you've never seen the show, it's like Meet the Press for entrepreneurs. Several reporters gang up on some poor CEO, and typically I ask the most obnoxious questions.
On Jan. 22, I was intensely focused on my Twitter feed, constantly refreshing it for updates about nasty weather in the area.
