I was in Petaluma, California, just an hour or so north of San Francisco, where Leo Laporte and the TWiT team did their annual 24 hrs. of New Year's party. That's where they start with New Zealand, the first time zone to hit 2015 and keep going until Hawaii, the last time zone hits it. It's a marathon, but it's all for a great cause — to raise money for UNICEF.
I joined in for Dance Central with Chad Johnson, badly, had a panel discussion on whether robots will one day eat us with Steve Gibson, Jeff Jarvis, and Randal Swartz, argued iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus, gotten beat at chess, taught some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to Leo, and played trivia with Paul Thurrott. You can find all those videos below, and the entire event at TWiT Live Specials. Give them a watch and, if you can, please donate!

Chess! Leo takes on Lisa, Jeff, Mike, and me — and shenanigans ensue.
