    So I was interviewed briefly about e-cigs for a local paper. I feel as though I gave her some good information (I even emailed her some good studies) - and now they want to take my photo with my gear. Well, all of my gear is Golden Greek stuff, so it will look very nice :)

    I have a Just GG + Ithaka, GGTS + Ithaka, Stealth + Penelope and an Ody v2 (and all my DIY gear)

    I wish I had more to show, like some of you guys!

    I wish I had some sort of larger GG logo that I could throw in there so everyone could see it!


    I'm also really nervous that things I said are taken out of context.. I really hope that's not the case!
    The writer is young and she smokes cigarettes, and she seemed genuinely interested in learning about them, so hopefully it's a good article!

    Just wanna give a heads up, I will post it when it comes out! Should be Sunday I believe

    Sounds like you got a reporter that might write a good article, especially if you can convert her.

    Thanks guys!
    aalwani I've been super busy lately! I'm hoping to get back on here soon.. I see that new Ithaka rebuildable part and am kicking myself for not being around to snag one!!

    I'm way excessively nervous about this and I kinda regret even agreeing to any of it! Just can't wait for it to be over, the whole thing is giving me anxiety haha

    Just got the photos.. he took close-ups of me disassembling my JustGG, and he wrote down "Golden Greek" - so you will get a shout-out Imeo! I told him "Yes, please put Golden Greek in there I would love to get him exposure"

    I do bite my nails, so I'm hoping there aren't any gnarly nail photos in there :blink:

    I can definitely scan it at a high resolution if anyone wants to print it!
    I hope they use good photos! I made sure all the GG wings were facing the camera when I could

    Hey guys, here's just a quick preview of the article!
    They did use "Golden Greek" - Awesome! I wasn't sure they would use it or not!

    [​IMG]

    I'm not a big part of the article at all, but I really like how they included Golden Greek :)

    I'll set the full article up for you guys to see as soon as I can

    Sorry for the delay, here is the article I pieced together. I had to get an account to view it. I will try to get an easier one to ready soon:

    [​IMG]

    And here's a link if that is too small to read

    I think the article is ok for the most part, but I was under the impression it would be different. I thought I was just clearing up some misunderstandings with e-cigs, and that I was to be shown as a hobbyist e-cig user, along with other normal e-cig users, but it looks like I am the only one shown. I suppose it has more interesting photos and will sell more papers, though?

    I also did send them studies about exhaled vapor having no nicotine or carcinogens, but in the article they say this fact is unknown...

    And the line saying "I hate using in front of people" was taken a little bit out of context and not literal :p

    And I kind of wish she didn't put the weed quote in there, but still.. people do ask me that all the time in public (semi jokingly, sometimes not)

    At least they showed both sides, although they could have done much better research :/

    What do you guys think?
