How You Filled In The Blank: You Know You’re A KC Techie When …

Dec 12, 2013

You know you’re a Kansas City techie when “@KCUR wants to know.”

That’s how Kansas City Startup Village (Twitter: @KCSV) filled in the blank on Twitter when we asked our listeners and followers on social media to complete this sentence: You know you’re a Kansas City techie when …

We asked you to Tweet us with your answers via the #TellKCUR hashtag or comment on our Facebook page. Listeners also could leave voice messages at 816-235-2881.

Some of the authors of the more than 40 responses we received on Twitter made fun of the idea of techies calling in with a message.

Case in point: One of our few callers said he knew he was a KC techie because he wasn’t quite sure how to leave us a voicemail.

See highlights from the Twitter conversation below. (See the full Twitter exchange online.)

The fill-in-the-blank query, whose responses spanned from tie-ins to Google Fiber to the local startup scene, was part of the lead-up to our hour-long talk show on Thursday that took at a look at how far Kansas City has come as a technology town.

Tell KCUR is part of a new initiative to engage the community and shine a light on your experiences and opinions. We’ll ask a new question every week and then share your feedback on the air and online.
