On the last day of the NAB Show, many editors gathered together at the In-N-Out Burger in Las Vegas to share double doubles (animal style) and talk about what they saw at the show. We took the opportunity to get out our handy Zoom recorder and pass it around the table. The question: what'd you...

Oh, to be young and carefree again. Like Connor Crosby. Not a care in the world between his college schedule, work schedule, social life, web mastering, giveaways, blogging, tweeting, and documentary filmmaking. Okay, the editing whiz is a little busy.
