Thank you for carrying the light into the lion's den with your speech at the Fed. I am a retired Senior Examiner of the Federal Reserve System (and hence not an economist), and can confirm the incredible ignorance of Austrian thinking among the folks at the NY Fed (where I worked). I'm not sure who is to blame--certainly the higher reaches of academia have played a role, but I have developed a level of cynicism about the character of the people that play the role of government (sort of) economists. What I mean is that they have no interest in any economic ideas that don't lead to the growth of governmental power, a portion of which rubs off on them personally.
I was an examiner, and hence had literally nothing to do with monetary policy. Nevertheless, I have always been interested in economic ideas (I bought my first copy of Human Action when I was an undergraduate--not in economics--at Stanford University in the 1960s), so you can imagine that I'm not a youngster. The good news is that the level of ignorance about things Austrian has dropped a lot since then.
Keep up the good work
