<p>Yesterday, as I waded through my backlog of email, I got not one, but two emails from friends of mine, announcing recently published interviews. </p> <p>My friend <a href="http://www.mikezagorski.com/">Mike Zagorski</a>—a <strong>still</strong> pasty Scot living in Hawaii who rides a bike faster than I ever could—was recently <a href="http://www.pezcyclingnews.com/default.asp?pg=fullstory&id=2913">interviewed</a> for Pez Cycling News. </p> <p>Mike is one of my many “internet friends”—someone I met via the internet in some fashion and have shared common interests with. In Mike’s case, we both were beta testers for Autodesk’s (awful) Viz4 product. While we were complaining on the beta forums about the poor implementation of what was Lightscape’s (wonderful) radiosity engine in Viz4’s horribly bloated application, we each checked out each other’s websites (you gotta have your website in your email signature you know) and discovered a shared love of cycling. As you will see from Mike’s interview and website, he’s a rather talented rider. I hope he can someday soon realize his dream of turning pro. </p> <p>Not more than two minutes after reading Mike’s interview, an email from another friend, <a href="http://www.pbase.com/jbosie/">Jeff Bosie</a>, appeared in my inbox. It seems that he too has an <a href="http://www.injersey.com/pulse/story/0,21493,1204925,00.html">interview</a> featured right now, in the local paper Home News Tribune. </p> <p>Jeff is an old friend made the old fashioned way, through actual physical interaction. We went to school together and recently re-conneted at <a href="http://www.rumblestrip.org/weblog/230">karaoke</a>, which he <a href="http://www.rumblestrip.org/weblog/231">documented</a>. Jeff is a talented photographer, and has a show coming up in Perth Amboy. The details are in the interview. If you enjoy photography, have a look at Jeff’s <a href="http://www.pbase.com/jbosie/">gallery</a> and then join us at the show next Sunday. I’ll see you there.</p>
