Fan Guests

  • Curtis Boyle
    • I have bricks at the Brick TWiThouse.
    • I have been told that I am somewhat skillful at "Uninformed Opinion" on a wide variety of topics.
    • It would add to the international flavour of TWiT (notice Commonwealth spelling) to have a Canuck on the show. I promise to say 'eh' at least once to prove my Canadian-ness.
    • I do try and keep up on tech news in general, and have for almost 30 years.
    • It would be really cool to actually talk on some tech topics with all of you (and the other guest hosts) directly, rather than hoping my comments aren't completely swallowed up in the maelstrom that is the chatroom.
    • It would cap off a really cool 2011 where I got a vacation for the first time in 3 years, got to visit both the TWiT Cottage (in January) and the Brickhouse (in December), and got to meet most of the TWiT staff in person, and give you all some souvenir items as a thank you for all the work you do making your podcasts (and, as I explained to iYaz over breakfast, helping me keep my sanity and showing that starting my own business, while scary, could be done, over these past 3 years. Leo and his whole starting of TWiT after the TV show was shut down parallels (although, on a much larger scale) my own experience of having the company I worked for, for over 20 years, shutting down, and then breaking out on my own to stay in an industry that I love. Leo and what he has done was a direct inspiration for me to try doing it on my own, and I thank him for it).

  • Kathleen Fuller
    • I'm an elementary music teacher in Spokane WA, but this is my first year back from Japan, where I lived for 6 years.
    • I also am an Apple Distinguished Educator, getting to be a part of the very first group of ADE's in Japan (class of 2010). Our school is letting out for winter vacation on Friday.
