This past Thursday, Sean McCarthy, CEO of Steorn, was interviewed by Matt Cooper of The Last Word, a radio talk show on Today FM in Dublin, Ireland. Here is a link to the audio. The interview starts at around 11 minutes into the show, and it's about 7 1/2 minutes long. Thanks go to the reader who pointed this out to me! Here are some of the more juicy excerpts:
On the Jury:
This is another confirmation that Dr. Jeff Bechtold is one of the jurors.
13:02 "Their mandate is to basically come in and prove us wrong"
13:16 "They started the 9th of January"
13:32 "The names of one of the jury names did actually leak on the Internet"
On the funding of Steorn:
13:54 "We're privately funded by private Irish investors"
Back to the Jury:
15:06 "It's safe to say that if it didn't work, the jury would have delivered already"
I wonder how the Jury feels about that! As far as this being a scam or hoax:
17:15 "This is not a question of you know it be a small joke... We have put our family futures on the line"
If you didn't catch Matt's original interview with Sean back last August, here is a link.
18:18 "The deepest reaction we've had, we've had threats from scientists, and I'm not joking, we've had threats of physical violence from scientists"
18:32 "We are not a scientific organization, I mean the validation is fundamental in something that is such a large claim, but for us we are a business. We want to get beyond this and go on and get this technology in to the market"
