On Saturday, July 24, 2010, I was part of history. I joined a bunch of sweaty Edmontonians in a small, cute little apartment just off Whyte Avenue to be part of the internet television event of that particular 18 minutes. I was a guest of the first ever episode of Saturday Night with Samsonow.
The first time I met Jeff Samsanow was actually at the same event where I rekindled my friendship with Unknown Studio co-host Scott C. Bourgeois. It was an Edmonton Tweet-up at a bar that no longer exists — or rather, the structure still exists, but it has a new name. That’s Edmonton for you.
Since June 2009, Edmonton has had the benefit of a great local resource to information on just about anything you can think of — from festivals to concerts to art shows to political issues and discussions, TheEdmontonian.com launched with a mind to try and bring topics of interest to citizens in a conversational, interesting way.
