Geek Gap on NPR

I guess we let the holidays and the whole new year get away from us - time to get back to blogging!
We were invited to Washington, D.C. to be on the Kojo Nnamdi Show for January 16th, heard on WAMU (American University Radio) and we jumped at the chance. It's a syndicated NPR show, which airs on more than 30 affiliate markets across the country, and we were offered the chance to be his guests for an hour-long call-in program called Tech Tuesday - if we could come to Washington. So, 14+ hours driving round-trip over about 32 hours, but what the hey, we managed. And it was fun! We're also in some pretty good company. Just a month or so before, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniac - a.k.a. "The Woz" - was Kojo's guest. Wow....boggles my geek mind to think that my butt shared space with molecules left by the inventor of the personal computer!

But seriously, we were honored to be invited, and Kojo is such an excellent interviewer and host. It's archived on their site, here's the link to the page:

Just yesterday (Jan. 25), we also did our once-per-semester visit to RPI (Rennselaer Polytechnical Institute) in Troy, NY, to speak to the 100+ student sized Leadership class. Some of the smartest future tech leaders in the country, always a pleasure to meet with them. They do give me hope for the future of the Geek Gap.
