VIDEO: My 15 Minutes of Fame

Several of us editor types put down our pens and picked up a microphone at IMTS this year. The interviews were shown on giant screens throughout McCormick Place.

I'm on the big screen!

Andy Warhol is credited for saying, "In the future, everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes." Mine came at the recently concluded IMTS in Chicago.

Several of us editor types put down our pens and picked up a microphone. The interviews were shown on giant screens throughout McCormick Place. Basically, the hosts at IMTS wanted to get our take on what’s happening in the manufacturing segments that each of our publications cover. Mine, of course, is the precision machined parts industry.

It was fun to change the pace from print to TV, although standing there talking is not as easy as it might seem. I’m proud to say that my interview was done in one take.

Although I could argue my face is better suited to radio, I enjoyed my brief time in the spotlight. Click here and let me know what you think.
