First Day in Washington DC

Today was a day full of interviews.
+Cronkite News , EVB Live Channel 12, +CBS 5 AZ  +Washington Post , +CNN , +Fox News 

SUPER fun day!
I meet really nice people - also had a lot of fun watching and reading all the awesome tweets coming in.
Thanks to everyone for that. Sorry if I wasn't able to respond to each of you - I sure tried.

Tomorrow is THE DAY! I'm very excited and a bit nervous. 

State of the Union

Yea, I can finally tell my secret.

I am honored to announce that I will be sitting in Mrs. Obama's box during the State of the Union.

Joey Hudy (Anthem, AZ
“Maker” and Intel Intern
Joey Hudy is a self-described “Maker,” part of a growing community of young people, adults, and entrepreneurs who are designing and building things on their own time. Joey first shot to fame in 2012 when, at 14-years-old, he attended the White House Science Fair where the President took a turn using the contraption he had made -- the “extreme marshmallow cannon” – and launched a marshmallow across the East Room. Joey then handed the President a card with his credo: “Don’t be bored, make something.” Now 16, he has continued to live by his motto, appearing at Maker Faires all across the country. Joey, a proponent of STEM education, is determined to teach other kids about how they can make and do anything they want. Joey lives in Anthem, Arizona with his mom, dad, and older sister. Earlier this month, he started as Intel’s youngest intern, a position Intel CEO Brian Krzanich offered him on the spot at his Maker Faire exhibit.

I am 1 of 25 other amazing people.

I am so excited...and nervous.

CES 2014

I have so many pictures to share about CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas.
This is me and Lisa. Lisa works at Intel, she keeps an eye one me! She's so funny.

I had the honor of meeting the Governor of Nevada. He was very interested in what Intel was doing. He also gave me a coin - it has his picture on it.

This was a fun interview. CFAX1070 is a radio station from Canada. It was fun doing radio vs camera interview. They are very very nice! 

Who doens't want +3D Systems 3d printed CANDY! It was really good too!

I had tons of fun working the +Intel booth and hanging with my boss Jay!

I was able to check out +Jeri Ellsworth glasses. They are AWESOME!
Look how crowded the Intel booth is! We were sooo busy.

+bre pettis WOW, he released some amazing new +MakerBot printers! 

+Matt Richardson you are SO cool! I had fun talking and hanging out with you.

Keynote speech. Mr. Brian Karznich the CEO of +Intel is so cool! Someday I want to have dinner with him and just hang out. This was really fun, being part of his very first keynote!

I worked a lot, but did get out of the convention center to find CHOCOLATE. I went to the M&M's store. YUM

It was so fun going to CES. I got to meet a ton of cool people and a bunch of Intel Employees. Everyone there is so nice. It's going to be fun working with them.
