Dan is getting his 15 minutes as a result of his near-death body surf down the face of Mount Washington. In an email last night he writes…

it’s a great illustration of life on the intertoobs.  by tuesday i made the top story on boston globe online, as well as “most emailed” on boston.com.  i had interviews with weather.com (live, via phone), aol.com, WCAX and 6 local (NH/MA) news stations.  The Caledonian Record and the Freeps ran stories.  good morning america invited me for a studio interview, but got bumped by the freed captain.  fox news ‘fox & friends’ did too but i declined based on political differences.

Good for Dan for not giving Fox News the time of day. Here’s a pretty impressive image…
