October 29, 2015 — Santa Cruz, CA
I had a few days notice but said “yes” quickly when Hilary Bryant, former mayor of Santa Cruz and new CMO at Calliope Waterworks, asked me to join her on KSCO‘s Hour Local Show with Neil Pearlberg last night. Hilary’s an old pro on this show. I’m a newbie. In fact, I’ve only been to the KSCO studio for Think Local First’s Holiday Mixers.
What did we talk about? Santa Cruz Tech Beat (duh!), Calliope Waterworks (duh!), genomics/biotech, ag tech, gaming, NextSpace, Cruzio, UC Santa Cruz, Cabrillo College, angels, Chamber of Commerce’s CLV in 2013, Santa Cruz Works, Digital NEST, jobs, the work-in-progess Monterey Bay Internship Portal (a joint partnership between Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County, Santa Cruz County Business Council, Cabrillo College, UC Santa Cruz, and Monterey Bay Economic Partnership), and even touched on “the old days” vs the current era of Santa Cruz tech. Plus Hilary’s surfing, Neil’s son’s birthday, and more.

Will there be another time? Dunno. Stay tuned…
