NPR’s Laura Conway from the Bryant Park Project (syndicated on a dozen or so NPR affiliates between 7-9am ET) called me this morning for a brief chat about the Congress rules fiasco that I’ve been monitoring.
Not only was this interview important for me personally (it’s NPR during the morning drivetime commute) but it’s very important for the issue at hand (it’s NPR during the morning drivetime commute!). Going on NPR this morning broke the story outside of the blogosphere and catapulted it into the attention of millions of Americans, many of whom use social communications tools everyday.
Thanks Laura and the BPP crew for the call.
Note: this is a rough recording off my computer while the show streamed. Will update with the “clean” copy from NPR after the archive copy goes up.
Update: The NPR archive is up. Go listen to a better quality here.
For those of you with better things to do on a Sunday night (and let’s admit that is just about all of us), you probably missed the Elite Tech News show tonight. Mark “Rizzn” Hopkins from Mashable invited me on to be a guest panelist with Steve Hodson, Louis Gray and the rest of the gang.
We talked iPhone 3G, particularly Rogers iPhone plans in Canada, along with some tech environmental stuff, Dave Winer, Robert Scoble’s parting with the rest of the techmeme blogosphere crowd.
Though the aftershow wasn’t recorded, it might have been just as good as we talked about Twitter, Trademark and Creative Commons stuff and an assortment of other topics.
You can listen to the (lengthy) show below.
Thanks, everyone, for letting me join your little group tonight. It was great fun.
Gnomedex was fantastic and it would be difficult toname the high point. However, ranking right up there was an opportunity to sit down with Kris Smith for a few minutes of podcasting. Notably, he observed that this site has just gone into Beta (heh) and we talked further about Digg, Facebook and Twitter. Great fun, good times. Thanks for the chance, Kris!
Update: Greg Cangialosi posts the video of the show:
