On the radioooooo

What an honor to be on the radio with Christopher Lydon on NPR/KUOW yesterday (he is the first official podcaster, although our book got that detail wrong). We were talking about “what makes a city great.” I’m a transplant into Seattle and it was interesting to spend a few minutes thinking about what makes a great city. Yesterday I was on KOMO radio too, with Joe Trippi. I’ll also be on John Moe’s business and technology show next Tuesday night.

Funny thing, when I got to the KUOW studios someone in the audience (I didn’t get her name) told me “hey, I saw you on Rocketboom today.” That was freaky. The studios are nice there, right above Tower Records. Well, enough of the old-school media.

  1. Just so you’re a little less freaked out…the “from the audience” person was me. Actually, I help produce The Works, and I helped Open Source that day, and since you were on both shows, I had to check you out. And the Rocketboom link was right up top on your blog that day- thus, you, Rocketboom, me watching you on Rocketboom- there you have it. Cheers, Sara Lerner.

  3. although our book got that detail wrong

    Somehow I don’t think that’s the only one. If I had the time (which I don’t as History Channel calleth), I’d love to ‘fact check your ass’. I zapped thru at least a dozen on a light read, and I am sure I could find more if deconstructing it. But figures when a PR type, instead of a journalist, kicks up dust; as takes at face value, and doesn’t always double-check.
