Welcome to those who've stumbled onto this weblog via the various pickups of the Associated Press article!
The AP article captures well the sense of humor that we have at the company. We have fun at work and we're certain to reflect that in the interviews we give. Of course, when Andrew says something like "Mena gets upset when everyone is not talking about her every day" and you're not in the room to see how he trying to antagonize me in a big brother sort of way, there is something lost in the delivery. Still, we're all caricatures of ourselves sometimes and it's important to be able to laugh at yourself. (Oh, I don't even want to get started about the Queen thing).
A while back I wrote a post where the line about me wanting to be famous in the online world figures prominently. You can read the essay here how this desire for fame turned into something else over the course of the past couple years.
And for what it's worth though, Ben is a lot cooler that he seems in this article. I think he applied for all of three jobs before we dove fully into Movable Type. From the image in the article, he seems like a character in a 90s British movie looking for a job after they shut the coal mines down.
This weblog, my personal weblog, isn't updated as much anymore since I now divide my time writing about our company, Six Apart, over at Mena's Corner and on my private weblog that is intended for family and friends. My old weblog, dollarshort.org has a page of archives that capture life for me during 2001-2003. If you're interested in reading, start in April 2001.
