Crazy. I got to meet Bob White (yes, *the* Bob White, squeeee!). Also, Mario said the show is scheduled to air the 21st, so barring changes on their end it'll play 5:30 PM, Tuesday, July 21 on WYPR and whoever their affiliates are. Local, but should hit a few thousand rush hour radios. And I'm totally going to forward the podcast to my family, so that's like three more that'll be in on it.
Thanks for the good words, unfortunately I was offline for everything after Patrick's note and missed a hackerspaces.org
shoutout. It's two out of the top three results for "hackerspaces", though, so they've already got the Google mojo. Kelly, on your note about the space, I did drop "Load of Fun" in there, but I prefaced with "*I'm* hoping we'll be able to sign a lease this week..." which will be strange enough airing the week after I said it that they may cut it out. meh.
Most of the interview went by in a flash, I won't be able to vouch for what I said until we hear it :) It was all very conversational, so while I swear I had my notes sitting on the table right in front of me, it was off the cuff. I managed to correct him the second time he referred to me as "the founder of Baltimore Node", but the first one may slip through. There was also a slightly awkward moment during recording (which lasted all of seven minutes) where he said, "This is so great, and it's all free!" and I kinda had to back up and explain a little. Might've been a bit of miscommunication :)
His advice on the way out was to "keep telling your story. You've got a good one." and he's right. We'll keep talking, and as long as we also keep *doing*, we'll find that people want to listen.
