After yesterday’s musings about my copious net presence, it was interesting to run across this article.
Look what I found… When searching for the old article about WebTV, I found a version of it translated into Japanese.
My friend Lisa was pretty blown away by how much stuff she found about me on the net. Even I’m blown away to find a Japanese article quoting me.
There are two things wrong with this story: MSN TV prank creating “emergencies+. One, that it could happen at all, because the design problems and bugs that made it possible have been known for a long time by people smart enough, but too busy to fix them. Second, that people are calling it a virus. It’s not a virus, just like it wasn’t the last time this came up.
The press can be so frustrating to deal with. The day I gave that interview, I had to get out of the office and go watch people flying kites to unwind.
