Chris Pirillo needs no introduction. Everyone knows him as an ubergeek, the founder and maintainer of Lockergnome, former host of TechTV’s “Call for Help”, and, along with his wife Ponzi, the host of Gnomedex, the technology conference made for geeks. I always think of him as the guy with the most infectious laugh I’ve ever heard.

But recently Pirillo had the AUDACITY to talk about politics on his blog and incurred some criticism. I invited him to come on GW to chat about his views in some depth.
