At Baconfest, I asked several bacon enthusiasts (some celebrities, some just bacon-loving Joes n' Josephines) one question: What does bacon mean to you?
The extravagant answers ranged from "essence of life" to "everything."
Several of the more over-the-top responses were captured, and you can hear them on Rivet News Radio.
Oak Parker Charlie Meyerson runs the Rivet news room.
Following the model of Pandora, the customizable online music streaming service, Rivet enables users to indicate what general topics and even what specific program segments he or she would like to hear. Rivet then automatically reduces the clutter and makes sure you get more of the programs you've indicated you like in areas including Arts & Entertainment, Business or Sports.
If you're a commuter, Rivet leverages geo-positioning technology to sends you traffic updates relevant to your location.
I hope to be working more with the Rivet Team, and when I do, I'll post links to food-related segments I think you might find interesting. I'm also looking for stories, so if you have something you think might be noteworthy, you can post here or email me.
