Hey Chen Chen, It's been a few days since I've written, but first off, let me say how HAPPY I am right now. The Giz Gallery was more fun and better received than I'd expected. And Funde Razor SF, done with Wired and Boing Boing Gadgets and Kotaku last night was amazing, too.

Hey Jason, Chris and I got into NY yesterday and haven't really stopped moving since then. The Gizmodo Gallery has been a huge success so far, especially with Phil Torrone from Make doing free laser etchings all day for anyone who brought him a graphic and a gadget to tattoo. But setup, well, it took awhile. Especially deciding where to put what furniture, and what gadgets to put on what particular pieces of furniture. We ended in a mental loop for a few hours, trying to sort everything out so it would be presented perfectly, and in the end, we were satisfied. But from start to finish, it took us 15 hours to do. Which we compressed into a 45 second time lapse video which you can see above.

Jason, I was in LA for a bit yesterday, helping Jalopnik cover the LA autoshow with my long lens. (It was a boring show with nothing too interesting other than the Electric Mini and Honda Concept.) But it was coincidentally the same day JJ Abrams was showing off some scenes from the new Trek movie, so I stopped by. This is funny: When they asked me if I had any recording gear in my bag, I had a heart attack. Most people had a mere mobile phone, but I had my full journo-blogger-battle messenger and so I ended up checking like 4 pieces of AV gear and a laptop. So embarrassing.

Hey Brian, Did you hear that PC Magazine is ending its magazine edition and focusing solely on the online space? Sad to hear. I was one of those kids that grew up having a subscription to PC Mag in the house, every month reading what crazy uncle Dvorak (plus those other dudes) had to say about something or other. SCSI. And Windows. Stuff like that. Although I haven't had a sub to them in years, it's always sad to see an end to something you used to enjoy. Supposedly EGM might be getting the cut as well, but that's a decision for next year.

Hey Brian, Are you excited? I'm excited. Why am I so excited? Because we're getting ready for our Gizmodo vs. Wired match in Gears of War 2, which you're going to be participating in. Maybe. If we can't find someone better at video games that is (just kidding). I'm also excited about finally getting Wii Fit, which you've just given your six month review of. Running on my treadmill will definitely help me more than this toy, but it's an additional motivator. Good times!

Hey Jason, I have this ongoing irrational feeling that no one reads us. Which is why when I meet a geek who tells me they spend all day at work wasting time on Gizmodo, it makes me super happy. I had that happen last night at Lucky 13 hanging out with Xeni and the guy from Telstar Logistics.

Hey Brian, It's my first Halloween since I moved into my new house, so I really need to make sure I have enough candy so the neighbourhood kids don't change my exterior paint to eggshell white. That means no fun size candy—only the good stuff.
