The lady is back : Joanne Colan….

Long suffering hearts, minds and followers of the former Rocketboom presenter Joanne Colan will be glad to know – she’s back…..
As of October 22 the intrepid presenter with the sharp wit and good looks will be presenting 8 shows ‘Dean of Invention’ on the Discovery Planet Green channel…
Joanne, a lost Brit to the shores of the US cut her teeth not only with popular internet news site Rocketboom but as VJ to MTV Europe for many years. Infact a ‘jetsetting globetrotter’ is a bit of understatement for her! (albeit she’s trying to cut back on that flying business)
She’s spent months working with Radical Media on this show working along side Dean Kamen who is not only the name sake of the show, the inventor of the Segway, but a globally recognised inventor with over 400 patents to his name. (this is frustrating as I sit and stare at the paperwork for my first patent and never filling it in!!).
So from incredible developments in A.I. nano medical Micro-bots and robotics that astound, this show sounds pretty fantastic!!
Pre-production and talks started way back in winter 09 and filming started back in March of this year taking Joanne and Dean across the USA, Canada as well as Ireland, England, Austria and Italy. (kinda jealous of the Austria bit as I used to live in Kitzbuhel).
Joanne has been kind enough over the months to keep me reasonably in the loop, but while a force of nature in her own right, she does do some pretty cool stuff!!
While she lives and works across the pond Joanne openly admits to getting homesick for Old Blighty and obviously misses friends and family etc, but this never takes away her professional edge or her humour…That said, she is fluent in Fr**ch…. :( lol

This show sounds great and starts tomorrow on the 22nd – it’s on Discovery Planet Green Channel, go watch it and please – someone tell me how good it is as I cant get it myself :-(

h/t Joanne for the upgate :)
