The Premier & The Reinventorium

Did you know that Premier MacLauchlan has his own YouTube channel of interviews with Prince Edward Island entrepreneurs?

A few weeks ago I got the call from his special assistant: the Premier wanted to come and interview me.

About what?”, I asked, somewhat incredulously, as I do not fancy myself an entrepreneur (and, indeed, at least in theory, reject most of the tenets of capitalism).

He wants to come to the Reinventorium to talk about printing and the Internet and other things that you do,” said the special assistant (and I paraphrase, as my incredulity was clouding my mind).

I was blinded by the inside baseball reference to the Reinventorium. And so I said yes.

And so the Premier and the special assistant will arrive here tomorrow at noon.

I’ve spent the last few hours bringing some order to the Reinventorium’s chaos, piling the stacks of papers more neatly, removing seditious literature, and generally seeking to make the operation look slightly less tangled.

I’ve watched a sampling of previous episodes of the show with an eye to getting some insights as to what we might talk about; they seem to run 3 or 4 minutes, but I’m pretty sure that between the letterpress printing, The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Hacking in Residence, and the other procrastination projects, I can keep him going for at least an hour.

Wish me luck.

Islander cards are in very short supply.
