I cured a fear of spiders with knowledge/ curiosity when I was a child, so I really enjoyed this. While I'd probably freak out a bit if I face-splatted one of your Joro spiders while cycling, I think that they are really cool. Many years ago when I was doing some work in Mauritius and Rodrigues, I encountered a similar giant spider and thought that they were awesome. I'm concerned about invasive species though. Lets hope they fill themselves up on invasive stink bugs.
