    Cool Suggestion for Geek of the Week?

    Hi Dan and Eric!

    I've been looking for someplace to post a suggestion for a GOTW interview....don't see one. Probably in stealth mode.

    My suggestion is a fellow named Stephen Brown --he has a YouTube channel called 'sbrebrown'. Funny, interesting, nice pen collection---and he has the cutest little gerbil that not only eats raisins in an adorable manner, but also, if title is any clue, appears to be a member of the British Royal Family.

    I should also mention that Monsieur Brown lives in a foreign land (not sure which one but it's not California).
    However, that's probably not an issue because international time zones pose no problems pour Les Geeques des Stylos !

    Cheerio for now,
    CR

    P.S. Or could he do a co-hosting or guest drop-in for the podcast/video/fpradio show? We know he's got the camera, right?

    Add my vote. I really like his youtube channel because he reviews a wide variety of pens. There's a pen for everyone.

    I submitted an email, suggesting Pendleton Brown. I never heard back, but I thought I'd chime in here. PB would be a *great* interview!

    Yeah, Stephen would be a great Geek of the Week interview (he lives in The Netherlands) and so would Pendleton Brown.
    Great ideas!

    Okay! Sounds like we have a show! Featuring guests Stephen Brown, and Pendleton Brown.

    So let's see. There have been 16 Podcasts so far. If they wait for 25 more, then Stephen and Pendleton will appear on the Very Special Podcast known as:

    "#41 BROWN"!!! Sponsored by Noodlers Ink. Of course.

    Or they could cut the wait, hop to it, and see if they could get site sponsorship from UPS.

    Just out of curiosity, do Dan or Eric ever respond? I sent a PM with this suggestion a week or so ago and never heard anything back, which is why I posted in this thread...

    Hey Jon, we got your suggestions. Thank you very much for sending them. We usually don't respond to those unless you have a specific question about something, but you can be sure they all go on a list for us to reference later.

    To everyone else in this thread, especially Carole, thanks for posting in here. We love to hear your suggestions.

    Hi Dan--I've never been able to post before! I thought maybe you guys had a restraining order on me.

    P.S. Does anybody know how to translate 'Fountain Pen Geeks' into different languages? I Geechi Penne Stilografiche? Les Geeques du Stylos? I don't think that's correct, somehow......

    This guy is indeed worth watching. I liked his daily carry spoof.

    Cheers! I'm fairly new around here, so I was just checking. Enjoying the site, so I'll try to contribute as best I can, and thanks for all you do.

    BTW, after a year of being involved in pendom, I think the geek factor has truly kicked in: I've been taking the GotW recordings on my iPhone and listening to them at the gym. I don't dare let anyone know what is coming out of the ear buds...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that all of your GotW interviewees thus far sell and/or service fountain pens professionally. I think that it would also be great to profile some of the prolific FP collectors in the community.

    Have you guys also considered doing any short-form written interviews for the site? This would be a great way to feature FP collectors and highlights from their collections (i.e. post lots of FP pictures!).

    Keep up the great work guys!

    I know Eric and Dan have to attend to "real life," but has anyone heard if they are planning to post any more Geek of the Week podcasts? It's been a while, and those were my favorite parts of the FP Geeks network.

    I think the person chosen has to also agree to the interview. Just a guess but I think Mr. Binder may be pretty busy. I am waiting for that interview.
