#DifferentSpokes Recap via @jeffdonthemic

Colleague and salesforce MVP Jeff Douglas regularly experiences moments of celebrity status. When he walks down the streets of Sarasota to grab a sandwich, he often has to thwart off paparazzi and give out autographs to little kids begging him to sign a copy of his most recent book. As time consuming as that lifestyle may be, Jeff still finds the time to co host #DifferentSpokes every three weeks, and even write up a post show recap of our latest episode for his very own blog, making my life a whole lot easier!

Check out Jeff's recap of #DifferentSpokes Episode 3 with special guest host Josh Birk, Developer Evangelist from Salesforce below!

Also, take the time to let us know what you think. We want to know who from the community would be interested, (and able due to time zones) to join us live for a #DifferentSpokes broadcast. We also want to get an idea of what topics you want to hear, what you'd be comfortable talking about and especially who you want to see us bring on as guest hosts. After all these shows are meant to be a way for you to interact with us, so we need to know what we can do better! Post any and all questions/comments/ideas on this forum thread so we can keep improving.

As a reminder, our next show will air Wednesday March 13th, at 8am PST. We will be changing the scheduled book for "Bowerman's Book Club" segment from "Hands on Node,js", as we will be focusing on Google as our main topic. Thus postponing the node.js talks to the 4/3/13 show when we have special guest Kevin O'Hara on to talk node yet again. 

Without further ado, here is Jeff's recap writeup of our latest episode!
