Craig has been involved in the heating Industry for many years including starting Hearth.com on the cusp of the internet explosion in the mid 90's. The discussion will revolve around how the industry has evolved and the impacts it has seen from the internet.

Post any questions you have for Craig. We'll be focusing on coal heating in the mix of the larger alternative heating market, the prior boom periods in coal and alternative heating and what may lay ahead, and the role of the internet in the hearth and alternative heating industries particularly how it has changed the dynamic between retailers/manufacturers and the customers, how fast/slow the industry has adapted to the internet, and what opportunities exist still.

If we have time we may touch on the intersection of alternative heating and the "green" movement and what he sees as the proper framing of that and how home coal heating fits into the mix. If we don't get to that, no worries, there is a future episode planned that will deal with this area and the general environmental policy issues of alternative and coal heating, no idea when it will happen, but it is on the docket. :)
