We’ve been stepping up the number of conferences we attend at Mach 30 because we’ve found them to be a great way to spread the word about our organization and to connect with some really great people. Some of those people are connected with podcasts, and we have been fortunate enough to be invited to do several interviews over the last few months.
Just last week I was interviewed on the Public Knowledge In the Know podcast. I met the interviewer through contacts from the Open Hardware Summit. We talked about Open Design Engine, the genesis of Mach 30, and what lies ahead in 2012. As always, it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to share the Mach 30 message with a new audience, and I am very thankful to Public Knowledge for inviting me. You can listen to the Public Knowledge podcast here (the Mach 30 portion of the interview starts around 18:47).
Back in November, Evadot had me on their podcast. A contact from the hackerSPACE Workshop mentioned Mach 30 to Evadot, and not long after we scheduled the interview. We talked about open source spaceflight, the challenges of ITAR, and Mach 30’s approach to those challenges. You can listen to the Evadot podcast here.
Finally, in October, Greg Moran, Mach 30’s Vice President, and I were jointly interviewed on the Open Hardware Junkies podcast. Greg and I met the gentleman who runs this podcast during lunch at the 2011 Open Source Hardware Summit. We spent much of the podcast discussing the role open source hardware plays in the Mach 30 mission and the tools Mach 30 is assembling in support of open source hardware. It was especially fun to have Greg along for the interview. I think it is great when we get a chance to bring our different styles of presenting Mach 30’s mission to the table together. You can listen to the Open Hardware Junkies podcast here.
I’m looking forward to the spring when the next season of conferences gets rolling so we can meet even more people (those associated with podcasts and otherwise) to share the Mach 30 mission and message.
