Thanks Ed.

Pretty cool, the story was chosen as a CNN editors choice, right on the front page of CNN.com

Wow. I just looked. You're right. You know what I would give to be on CNN's homepage? A lot, that's what. Congrats again. Should draw more people into the PianoWorld site.

By the way, did you write this story yourself?

Thanks Ed.

Yes, it's an excerpt from the post I put up on Piano World after hunting
down all 10 pianos.
http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1305647/

About 5 minutes after I posted the iReport I got a call from Turner Broadcasting.
I was on another line and didn't get to the call. It was the producer asking follow up questions. I did end up speaking with her.

She wanted to know if I'd be ok with them putting it on TV too.
I said not a problem, but I'd appreciate it if they could make me look thinner and add some hair :-)

I don't think it's going to get that far, but being an editors choice on the home page of CNN is still pretty exciting.
I hope it gives the Ybor City project some good exposure, a lot of people worked hard to put it together. It really was fun hunting for the pianos.

Of course, it won't hurt to get a little exposure for PW too. Always happy to bring
in new forums members.
