All the news that fits

During the course of the Ikkatsu Expedition this summer, especially after we found remnants of a house on a remote Olympic beach, the trip and our survey activities were the subject of a spate of media attention. We did scores of interviews with print and broadcast outlets and got used to seeing our names on Google for a couple of days before the news cycle came around again, and we disappeared. That’s how it goes… 
And that’s ok. It was an interesting and heady few days but I think we were all a little relieved when the phone stopped ringing. 
It’s funny though. The story of the expedition and the things we had found was in the Washington Post, the Daily Telegraph and the Times of India. But for whatever reason, I don’t think we ever got into the pages of the New York Times. The Gray Lady, the paper of record. I don’t know why it seemed important to me that our story should get into the NYT, but it never did.
Now I’m shooting to get a mention of the Ikkatsu Project into the Presidential Daily Briefing. It’s not “media” exactly, but it would be pretty cool. Except I don’t know that we’d ever even know it happened.
