Looking to talk to northeast Iowa people for a Courier column about CS
Posted September 19th, 2012 - 10:03 pm by from Waterloo, United States (Permalink)
Hey everyone,

This is Amie -- I'm a reporter for the Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier, but I also started the Waterloo/Cedar Falls CS group several years ago, and have watched it grow little by little. I have also surfed and hosted a lot, and loved it!

My editors have caught wind of my activities with CS and they'd like me to write a bit about it. So, since they pay me, I will!

But my experiences are only mine -- they're certainly not everyone's. I'd like to pad out my column with stories from other folks from northeast Iowa (as that is the territory we cover). I want to know good stories, not-so-good stories, how you came to CS, how often you host, how often you surf, and what your involvement in CS is/has been over the years.

You can respond below, including your name and city of residence, or you can also email me at amie [dot] steffen [at] wcfcourier.com.

Also, I understand there is a whole "media/PR" wing of CS that likes to handle "official CS stuff" -- this is not that. This is simply local people talking about their experiences. I'm looking for personal opinions about your own experiences.

If you have other questions, post them below! As soon as I get enough responses, I'll put the column together.
