We're giving "you" our dedicated and hardcore audience a chance to see behind the scenes of the 10 team. Laura and I chat about what it's like to work at Microsoft and we introduce Jesse Lewin our newest member. And Adam Kinney, Duncan Mackenzie, Erik Porter and Jeff Sandquist talk about what it's like behind the scenes of the 10 Show!

    It was mentioned in the video that you want to see more people commenting and giving feedback, which I think is great to hear. However, I'm have to be honest and say that while there have been some VERY good topics on 10, lately (computer recycling, for example)...there have been topics that just don't interest me and therefore, I chose not to comment about them. Not that they are bad ideas for 10 videos (heck, I like a variety of tech-topics), but they won't appeal to everyone, which is okay.

    While on the subject of comments, I want also want to mention that I noticed you guys don't really respond to people's comments that much. Of course, I'm not expecting everyone's comment to be responded, but I (as a 10 viewer), would like to see more interaction from the 10 team in the comments section. I can understand that you might be too busy sometimes, but if you do read the comments, you must notice the lack of responses to them (from the 10 team and even 10 viewers). I don't know the reason and I don't know what we, the viewers, can do to get more interaction going (maybe, the forums will change that).

    Finally, I think it would be cool if we can get some Xbox Live matches going, with the 10 team and the 10 viewers (whether it be UNO, Call of Duty 2, PGR 3, etc). I understand Tina and Laura don't want to give out their gamertags and I totally respect that, but if other 10 members are willing to do this, I think that would be cool. Well, I still think all of you are doing a great job at 10. However, there is always room for improvement... Have a great 4th of July. I hope Laura is feeling better.

    Hey, this was great introduction to the whole 10 team episode.  Not so raw...or uncut, but really a nice chance for those of us who watch to get to see the whole team and not just the girls.  I was an avid fan of G4 since 2002, but gave it up completely when G4TV.com ended.  I am really glad to see Laura and Tina back on the air and covering such a wide range of tech related media.  Thus far, I have really enjoyed 10 and want to thank the whole team for what has been a great effort.  Keep up the great work and make sure everybody has a chance to say hello from time to time.  Oh yeah, welcome aboard, Jesse.

    ...and what post would be complete without feedback and suggestions.

    -These episodes need to be posted at 10:00PST, they're coming too late and it's really hurting the number of posts you are getting.
    -we are still waiting for that "edit" button for our comments.
    -Laura and Tina are best on the air when working together.
    -I would like to see some more science tech, such as the newest in agriculture, biology, and astronomy, not just medical.
    -Great job so far, keep up the good work.

    ...anyway, it was great getting to meet everybody.  10 is awesome, and its nice to see Thug and Dub back on the air.

    It´s great to finally see and hear all the 10 team together! Only, where´s Scott??

    I´ve really enjoyed 10 so far, loved some if not all the content and Tina and Laura have been at the top of their game. I, aswell as other 10 members look forward to the evolution of the show, the tweaks and additions. There is always room for improvement, but you guys have done an outstanding job in such a short time. My only petitions would be a few more segments on gadgets (we STILL want more Duncan!) the occasional "odball" segment from 10´s lovely ladies and if possible I´d like to see Scott back with maybe a "Scott´s Corner-Not NecessarilyTech" segment. I still drool over Count´s Kustom Harley´s. Wink It´s really refreshing to hear what you guys think of your own "baby", and see the creativity you put into the show. I´d like to say hi to Jesse.... I hope he livens up a bit though. I´m sure T&L will take care of that! Big Smile

    For all those that asked about it...editing works fine on my machine.  What's going on?  Oh wait, I'm running the latest build of 10.  Wink  Sorry for the tease, but just wanted to say the edit feature is done and ready to go, just that the new 10 release is not ready to go yet.  As soon as it is, you'll be able to edit your posts and tons of other good stuff.  Smiley

    Cool to see you guys all onscreen.

    Coming from a Laura and Tina fanboy, I'd really love to see them cover (or with a guest expert) some of the new software, videogames, and gadgets. I'm also really enjoying the behind the scenes look at video games, along with convention footage.

    All in all you guys are doing a great job. (Where is the next episode of "Today in Tech"?)

    Do you guys plan to cover comicon at all? I know it's not a tech convention but it's always funny to see how Tina and Laura interact with the fans.

    Plus the comedy bits are gold. You should do more. Laura tazering herself reminded me of the bits from G4tv.com, like Tina as the silent Pilgrim was priceless.

    Fantastic idea for an episode!!  I absolutely loved it.  We all know and love Laura and Tina but it's awesome to meet the guys working behind the scene to make this show happen every weekday. 

    Laura, I'm so incredibly proud of you for knowing Superfly Jimmy Snuka, lol.  That's old school right there. 

    Duncan, that might be one of the greatest t-shirts I've ever seen!  Han did shoot first and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise!!

    Yay for forums!! Ok but seriously, that was some great insight to how the show got started, what it's doing now, and where it could and is going in the future.  Fantastic episode, good to be introduced to everyone involved and I can't wait to see where the show goes in the future!

    Another outlet for my self-impressed ego!
    Great segment though, about time we got to meet the folks who make things happen. The flip-flops have got to go though.
    I actually bought a Wrestlemania III t-shirt ages ago, that's how far back I go with wrestling. Stopped watching 2 years later though.
    When did Tina change her name from T-Dub to 'The Dub'?

    As far as on10 is concerned, I like the variety. I don't see a lot of discussion going on in the healthcare and education sections, even though, being in the healthcare business myself, they're fascinating fields when combing them with IT. Too bad my company has travel restrictions, or I'd be visiting the MSHUG conference over there in August. I am sure y'all will be doing some coverage of that, RIGHT?!

    Ah, perhaps I should clerify what I meant.  "Raw and uncut" implies more uncorrected mistakes and unedited camera shots.  While I'm impressed that you all nailed that in a single take, I noticed quite a bit camera work, leading me to believe certain elements may or may not have been edited after shooting.  Either way, I meant no offence.  I'm always loyal and behind anything Tina says.

    Not really.  I'd like to be totally transparent, but we'd like you to be surprised by some of the features.  Wink  We'll have forums, with some really neat features that we think are pretty original.  We'll have e-mail subscriptions so you can keep up on what's being talked about.  The interface will be a bit refined to make things easier to find and less confusing.  And about 5 other little things I can't tell you about.  Tongue Out  Adam is going to get some screen shots up soon so you can see more.  Smiley

    I like this site. Good job T-Dub and Thug (and whoever those guys are). Just kidding, I appreciate that they helped the ladies of tech return to the spotlight, increased the nerdiness and pumped in more information to the programming. The joy of Foy and the good of Wood still remains, however, in a more serious and professional manner.
