We Get Press
Boston Innovation's Matt Fellows wrote Team Building? Try Machine Building! about Jeff's team building program. Wired.com'sMichelle Dellio interviewed Jeff, and Steve Garfith one of the Britishexperts, and wrote Who Wants To Be a Gearhead? Thiswas picked up by Slashdot which resulted in the usual blizzard of hits, and over100comments. The whole team was interviewed by Michael Park, and FoxNews published U.S.Gadgeteer's Appear on British 'Junk' Show. ChrisSzechenyi, of the Boston Globe's online edition wrote Turningjunk into science. The paper edition of the Globe ran its ownarticle. We had our first live interview, on Baltimore radio station WQSR'smorning show. Chris Wright of the BostonPhoenixinterviewed Jeff and Crash, resulting in TechnoTrash: Junk Bonds. Shortly before our show broadcast in theUS, we appeared on The Computer Reportshow on WCAP radio in Lowell. While not mentioning us by name, areview of the show in Maxim online used a photo of Crash and I with theNautilus.
