I had to take a red-eye from Portland out to Boston for some press meetings a few weeks ago. After taking an Ambien while boarding the plane, I got to my seat -- only to realize I was in the last row of the plane. Frequent travelers will recall that the last row is notorious for having seats that don't recline.


Needless to say, I didn't get a wink of sleep even though I was drugged and dopey. (I also grabbed the wrong laptop and the hotel didn't have my reservation. But I did get my Dunkin Donuts fix.)


Still, I managed to get in a pretty good " Hot Seat" videocast interview with the folks at Network World. Check it out if you have time and any interest in seeing how I look after no sleep, and if you want to see some sweet exploding chair graphics.
