Google and our cable system – Insightcom.com both have communicated with me today. Both have been very nice conversations. I am better off because we communicated.
Google wanted me to know that our secret deal is still OK and is progressing nicely. They will be in touch in the next few weeks with the details. I removed the post about them as they requested too. Sergey and Brin, buds, I’m still your man in Kentucky.
Insight decided that I needed another video camera. So they are sending me one.
Congratulations! You are one of our four lucky winners to receive a Flip Video Ultra Camera just for being an Insight customer!
Attached is the winner release form. Please fill it out and return to me by email or by fax to 917-XXX-23XX.
Yeah, that had scam written all over it, right? So I called the local Insightcom.com office and got a really nice CSR. She said she would check because if corporate sent out emails to local customers, they usually got a copy. She checked, no dice. She said it didn’t come from them.
Yikes! I opened the attachment in Google Docs, so felt safe from any malware.
Then the CSR did the unthinkable. She said, “give me the number and I’ll call it.” Wow. Great idea. As she is calling, I’m Google (R) searching the name. Found it! And Google told me alot about the person from Insight.
Google affirmed the identity of another Giant Media Corporation’s employee.
AND – get this! The person is an adventure racer.
Adventure racing is one of the few sports where just completing a race is considered a victory. It allows runners, hikers, climbers, bikers, and paddlers to participate and compete in new and challenging events. Large expedition competition races are over 300 miles and can take up to 10 days to complete, while sprint races can take only an hour or two. Adventure racing not only challenges the body but the mind as well. Competitors must always travel together as a team, putting an emphasis on teamwork rather than individual achievement.
I love the innerwebs!
Google is working for me. Google is working with me. I got a free video cam from a person who works for Giant Media Company who has a hugely exciting hobby.
I love the innerwebs. I’m glad I have Insight as my connection to the innerwebs. We’ve had our setbacks in the pass, Insightcom.com and I. But send me a gift and all is well.
But if Microsoft contacts me, I will be so screwed. Bill Gates is a Prick. If Microsoft contacts me, it probably will be to upgrade me to Vista.
