Rick Karr hosts a PBS series called NYC 2.0 to air Sunday nights (and online) for the next six weeks. The first episode features hackerspace NYC Resistor, MakerBot, and Boxee. Rick visited my studio and other dear friends so I’m looking forward to the NYC 2.0 lineup!

The Hackers (Air date: Sunday, September 18, 8:30pm)
The bad ones steal, but the good ones – like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates back in the day – invent. Host Rick Karr visits Brooklyn’s NYC Resistor and talks to a hacker and inventor. Karr also turns his own video game console into a home media center, then visits a Manhattan startup that hopes to turn that hack into a multimillion-dollar business.
