This past week for an interview on DisrupTV, I was keeping good company as fellow guests on the show were Crawford Del Prete, President of IDC and Jon Reed, Cofounder at Diginomica.

DisrupTV hosts Ray Wang and Vala Afshar did a great job digging out some never-before-heard comments about my road trip adventures and research for my new book Silicon Heartland: From Rust Belt to Tech Belt.

What's in a name? For the up & coming Louisville area East of downtown, it's pronounced "NewLou" but spelled "NuLu". Another reference to Louisville's VC and tech community is StartupLou. We sorted it out on our show, thanks to a tip from Kelby Price of Keyhorse Capital.
