Where will you be when the announcement is made?

As this Project X stuff seems to get closer to reality, do you ever start to think how we'll hear about it? I was away from all media all day and when I got in the car WOOD 1300 was talking about it and I thought, did I miss it? (No, I didn't)

Who will break this thing first, us? TV? The Press?

How will we react and will it be so big we'll always remember where we were when we first heard of it?

You can't help but get excited...even every day or so my wife asks, "Anything new?"

Ah, maybe soon! :D:D

Most of my co-workers are sick of talking about it. I'll say "well I heard....." and they all go "Oh shut up!". "Just tell us what it is already!" :rofl:

I'm thinking it will be a carefully-timed press conference so that WOODTV and Grubb & Ellis can make a massive impact on the community (If I were a bettin man). We may even see some other dignitaries there (Gov, Heartwell and Birgit maybe). Hmmm, they may even ask Mayor Heartwell to announce it.

Eric, *name Withheld*, and a another guy will probably jump on UP-GR first thing they get the ok..

Concesus was that UP-Gr wasn't in the game of making news, remember? Looks like I played prophet pretty well.

I'll probably be traveling and hear about it on this site. Unless its announced next Wednesday, and then there is a good chance I'll be seeing a high tech demonstration of what I think is going on the site, something related to Intelligent Vehicle Systems and transit.

I guess I see a difference between 'making the news' and 'making news'. I'm probably nuts. :wacko:

Edit: I should clarify, Some people "Make it on the news" by being bystanders to a fire. Other people "make news" by developing 30 acres downtown. I feel like UP is the former.

If Langlois is accurate about this "international map" thing, then maybe all you would have to do is open up a news paper somewhere...

Last night or this morning were my guess. Looks like I'm way off.

I'm thinking next Friday (March 17) or a week from Monday (March 20).

WOODTV has the story and is sitting on it.

They're such good local citizens.

:thumbsup:

If Grubb & Ellis{sodEmoji.{sodEmoji.|}}Paramount gives TV8 any kind of "exclusive" on THE announcement, they will be burning their future relationships with dozens of other media outlets in Grand Rapids.

If there is a news conference, it had better be open to all local media.

(Let's send Jeff) :whistling:

G & E aren't about to give an exclusive to anyone. They wish WOOD would simply go away for a while.

WOOD actually did some investigative reporting on it....and figured it out.

localtalent: I find the tone of authority in your posts on this topic intriguing.

Where does that come from, if not from the inside?

Or is it?

Are you bluffing?

localtalent is beyond, "tone of authority," localtalent is omnipresent. Local talent sees the past, the present, and the future all in one glance.

Maybe you should have been the one to change your username!
