The sekrit project can now be revealed! Over a year ago uber fans Dr. Karl and Shalin the rocket scientist spearheaded the ultimate fan tribute to commemorate the 1000th Episode of cnet’s Buzz Out Loud podcast. In a nutshell, fans designed and signed this t-shirt, that went around the world to four continents, originally to be delivered at the taping of the 1000th episode in June 2009. However, life got in the way of the best intentions and it was only this morning that the t-shirt was finally delivered to the studio. With the logistical assistance of producer Jason Howell, other uber fans engnr_chik, angryfrench and Ikcor brought in the t-shirt, photos, cards, artifacts (including chocolate and barbecue sauce) and engnr_chik’s awesome pound cake, and Jason taped the whole thing to post as a Web Exclusive for all to enjoy. A delightful ending to a long and dedicated journey.
The LA BOL Crew met up to sign the shirt at Downtown Disney on January 31, and I had a hard time keeping mum. Amazingly, no one spilled the beans and the hosts had no idea this was in the works. The picture of our meetup that we included in the package is below. Good friends and good times!
