EVTV on National Public Radio.
Jacob Mcclelland of local NPR affiliate KRCU has kind of broken into the national story team at National Public Radio with one of his first national stories - about EVTV. Aired this morning, September 21, 2011 on NPR's Morning Edition.
Our congratulations to Jacob on getting into national reporting and our appreciation for this very timely story for us.
Our web site would be overrun this morning, but we host on Amazon's AWS service and it is very nearly infinitely scalable. So not to worry. This should spread the word to many more potential viewers. We'll see.
Using a service called WEB STAT I can actually see individual connections to the web site and how many are "online" simultaneously. I'm sitting here watch 160 simultaneous video downloads from the Amazon Cloud - a surprising number from RUSSIA and the UKRAINE. Morning Edition must be very early there.
It is a machine of beauty. Amazon's Cloudnet is bestially arcane to deal with, but a thing of beauty in operation.
