Okay, thanks to many of you... we're about to launch at least virtually. In a few days, I plan to have a new piece up featuring a Tuskegee Airman I met at the reopening of the Pioneers of Flight Exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum.
The goal of this show is give sunlight to people, acts, and issues that are under-represented and celebrate the brilliance and efforts that saw often are ignored in many media outlets. We get so much repetition and so much gloom from much of the media that there ought to be an outlet where we can hear the other side. There is tremendous talent, originality, and effort out there as well as positive stories that just don't get their due.
I'm hoping that you will visit the site and let me know what you think. What works, what doesn't, how you find the stories, etc. More, I'm hoping that you can help me catch a virus... or is that go viral. One of the goals is to collect enough data that I can take this show and keep it virtual, but add a terrestrial broadcaster (there are a few mumblings about that already and I'll keep you guys in the loop when that becomes more serious).
So, if you like the website and what I produced please share it, announce it, and let the world know it's there. Link it on your facebook, twitter, and your own websites. Heck, if you hate it do the same thing only twice as ferociously
Mostly though, thank you guys from the ones who donated and helped me with the Cobblestones project in its infancy, to the ESers I've interviewed on NPR, and to those who have listened to my pieces over the years and helped me so much through their support and criticism.
I do consider so many of you friends.
