Dot Com Pho – Return To LAN Edition

After a long layoff, Dot Com Pho returns to the place where it all started. Dot Com Pho started at Pho Lan and for this edition, we returned to the little Pho shop on Number 3 Road and Granville to shoot our latest episode. In attendance were myself and Sarah, Wolf, Ed Lau, Ray, Greg Morgan, Gary Ng and Stephen Fung, who showed up late.

A new feature of this week’s Dot Com Pho is the Twitter Shoutout. If you were following me on Twitter, you would have saw a twit asking for your name and blog to be included in the video. Those who replied to the twit in time will see their sites featured in the video. That’s one more reason to follow me on Twitter.

In addition to the Twitter Shoutouts, this week’s Dot Com Pho features blogging for food, Pho menu #21, lots of iPhones, Dot Com Pho pens, the tip of the week and how I got a free Macbook Air. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks for the shout out and for spelling ‘Chris’ wrong in the credits. lol

      2. That looks like an interesting meal.. I hate onions however…

  2. Abdul says:

    You always get something for free!

  3. People have such a complex where they think of other bloggers has being part of some kind of “elite.” Bloggers are just people! Ask, and you at least have a chance of getting what you want. Fun video, John! Soup looked yummy.

    I’m sorry, but you all look like a bunch of tossers…
    And those iPhones just look too large, roll on another year when Apple have the functionality & size worked into a perfect fit.

    1. Ed Lau says:

      We have large enough hands, like most men, to accommodate iPhones.

      1. dave says:

        Yeah, I can see that…the iPhone fits in your hand perfectly…& I love them, just can’t wait to see late next years model as with a bunch of you using them there, they just look a lot bigger than they need to be.

        1. John Chow says:

          When the next one comes, we’ll be using those. 🙂 Keep up with tech is a fun, if expensive, hobby.

        2. Gary says:

          You say that now, but when you see the 3.5″ touchscreen it’s all worth it!

    2. I wonder how many readers here know what a tosser is…

    What happened to Gadget of the Week?

    1. John Chow says:

      We didn’t have one! 🙁

  7. Stephen says:

    I brought pens. Pens erase lateness.

    I’m giving out FREE pens. Comment on my post about Mirch Masala and I’ll send you some. Don’t worry, we did a spot check and they all seem to work 😉

    Kwanye will have some to hand out as well in a little while.

  8. I can’t believe I missed the chance for a shout-out. Oh well, maybe next time.

    That was the funniest dot com pho I’ve seen.

  9. Josten says:

    ….i missed the shout out?

  10. Tushar Dhoot says:

    I can’t believe you got a free macbook air.

    I’m sure the “ask and you shall receive” policy only works if you’re big time like John.

  11. Thanks for the shout out John! Enjoyed the video!

  12. I want your shirt. Give me that shirt.

  13. charles says:

    There was a portion on the video i call. “The Iphone show-off”

  14. John,

    I met Greg Morgan and Gary Ng at the Market Leverage dinner in Envy Steakhouse, when you were waving that huge stack of cash around, and I have recently wondered if Michael Kwan has been given FAA clearance to ride his scooter?

    Sorry I missed the Tweet to include my blog in your video, maybe next time.

    I am coming to a crossroads in my family’s financial future, and will have to make some serious decisions in December about our current home ownership and cars.

    Looking for any way to ramp up income, blogging for dollars, ezine article writing, HubPages etc.

    PPC / PPV is out of the question due to credit cards maxing out supporting ‘lifestyle’.

    I volunteered to video the BlogWorld sessions, in order to get a chance for some assistance from the thought-leaders like you, Tyler, Zac, Jim K, Darren, and Shoe.

    I did not want to intrude in your busy schedules, so refrained from sharing our current situation during such an encouraging and happy atmosphere.

    Thank you for being so kind to me and laughing about Michael Kwan for a long time..

    Respectfully, Nicholas – ‘the video guy’ at BlogWorld Expo 2008

  16. “He wants to be a real boy.” ROFL… I almost chocked on my drink… that was funny.

  17. Ecko says:

    I didn’t see the twit. So, do you still count me??? Or I should do what you said to be involved? 😀

  18. Tom says:

    HAahahaha. thanks so much John and Ed. My site surprised you guys. w00t.

  19. Following you on Twitter is no guarantee that you’ll get your message. I’m following many people and missed your post. The problem with Twitter is that doesn’t allow you to filter tweets by priority.

  20. When are you comming back to Toronto , the Dot Com Pho has been doing great since you visited it

  21. When are you coming back to Toronto , the Dot Com Pho has been doing great since you visited it

  22. The Dot Com Phos look like a lot of fun. Wish I knew about something like that in the Richmond area!!!!

  23. That looks absolutely wonderful. What a great segment on your blog. You should go on Anthony Bourdain.
