I've had more people in the last week comment on this piece to me, including many who don't have any idea I'm interested in magic. I've seen it posted on Facebook pages, saw it today listed in a newsletter on computer security, and my SO, who doesn't like magic, emailed it to me and said that this was the case of a magician who she found fascinating. I think this article really crossed Apollo over in a big way.

A great piece of publicity for Apollo. Note the mention of Bart Whaley!

It's been linked by a number of widely-read blogs and aggregators: Instapundit, Boing Boing (including a video), Metafilter, and Slate -- all of which get him in front of readers who wouldn't see the magazine article.

Apollo is also the cover boy of Kozmo's reel magic magazine, with a nice interview by John Lovick.
