Ring, ring. [Aug. 21st, 2002|11:27 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Phone rang... I got excited. But no, it wasn't anybody calling me back finally. It was the New York Times, wanting to send a photographer over to take a picture of me for some LiveJournal story. So this means I have to clean my office probably, because they'll want some picture of me leaning into my monitor with LiveJournal loaded on the screen, or something lame like that...

you should make them pay for a jaunt up to Seattle to take a photo of you at the colo instead. at least you wouldn't be taking the standard newspaper web g33k photo then.

Hmmm... Good idea. Then we could get sherm and evan in there too.

When they call back I'll see how soon they need it. We have new servers coming in, so I'll be up there soon anyway.

Dude....you have now achieved superstar status. You've got the New York Times sending a photographer over just to take your picture so they can do a writeup over you....and your bitching because it wasn't the cable company telling you when they'll get you HBO. :)

That is just toooooo funny!

Wow Brad, that's awesome. No one wants *me* to pose for a picture, especially the nation's biggest newspaper!

Go Brad go
