Those were some crazy times. Crazy, I tell you.
I received a Cr-48 Chromebook this week. I was about to take the box outside for recycling when I noticed something very interesting from across the room.
The secret is out. The “Mike L.” featured on Google Reader’s ReaderAdvantage™ Program landing page is actually Mike Leotta. As in the MikeLeotta.com Mike Leotta. As in me.
Why is my testimonial featured on this page? And what am I doing squatting in shallow water with ducks? I’m afraid I can’t offer an explanation for the latter but I can for the former: because it was my idea. Well, I actually had proposed the idea for Gmail, but they ended up going in a different direction (which I also had to help out with). So the Reader folks snagged it and modified it slightly.
I’m also responsible for a large portion of the stupid “fine print” at the bottom, which I wrote up very very late at night when I obviously think about Sasquatch more than usual.
Props to the Google Reader team for turning my stupid idea into something fun!
Oh, and don’t forget about that disclaimer link that’s always on the bottom of this site.
Why is it that recipes on product packages always say something like “1 package of Oreo® brand sandwich cookies” or “4 tablespoons Peter Pan® brand peanut butter”?
Do they think I’m going to buy a package of Oreos just for the recipe, throw them out and then buy the store brand “Chocolate cream sandwich cookies” to make the recipe?
Where am I right now?
