More pimping of the Northern Voice


According to Jeffery, I’m rich since I’m at this event. Sweet. I had no idea. I’ll go to the bank and inform them of this turn of events.

This morning’s keynote speaker was Matt Mullenweg – creator of WordPress and serious spam hater. He’s a great speaker and pointed out how facebook ripped off the wordpress design. Also, did you consider getting invites on facebook spam? I never thought of it before today, but in Matt’s opinion, it certainly is. I would have to agree, but I don’t mind that kind of spam as it’s coming from my mother-in-law mostly. And who doesn’t like to get a facebook poke?

After Matt’s talk, I sat in Dave Olson’s session called “F&*% Stats, Make Art. He’s clever and funny. Dave’s big into the podcast side as well. I also spoke to him briefly after he spoke – very gracious.

I’m not sure what I’m going to blog about next. I have been very preoccupied with this event. So, now what?

    I think everyone pretty much thinks Facebook pokes, invites and Drink-O-Grams are spam at this point. What started off as a good idea is now essentially a big old spam bot that people actually sign up for.

    Lots of people hate Facebook pokes. And the inanity of those application invites is a big reason I quit Facebook.

    Thanks for the kind words Carol – i’m very glad i managed to articulate enough art-i-tude and edu-tainment to inspire a wee bit.
