Project Kenai on BlogTalkRadio

We are going to try and get the KenaiGuy Radio Show on BlogTalkRadio, going on a weekly schedule as soon as possible.  Of course that means we need lost of things to talk about each week.

Do you have a project that you think other developers would be interested in?  Do you have ideas or thoughts about how Project Kenai can be made better and provide more efficiency to developers?  Send ideas for Show Topics to kenai-admin<at> and we may just have a show with your topic as the central theme.

We would be more then happy to interview project leads and developers as well.  This is your chance to get the word out about your project, and where it's going, or what you want others to help you achieve.

Come on,  Send us those ideas and let's get the world talking about Project Kenai, and your ideas for the future!!
