How about nerd hunting and/or eccentric and/or clever and, last, there's always the opposite of cool, which is hot, and also means, these days, the same thing. My site is hot!

Hi Jennifer,
Yikes! Didn't mean to imply that you're not cool. My point was that the cool aren't the buzzers, just the instigators. (It was a nice ego boost for a few seconds I'll admit.) But then I thought it was sort of lame in context of people. I find most anyone is cool in some way if you give them half a chance. Slapping a thing with badge might be more interesting: sort of a public "I like this."

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges to tell us that we're cool!


First time poster here. Your blog is great.

We just started our own blog ","

On a personal note aside from work. I am a 22 year old MBA student and will be done in May 2006. I was curious, after reading your bio (quite impressive and inspiring) I wanted to know if you had any advice as how to make it in this industry? I will be moving to Seattle next summer.

It's hard to when you need a job to get the experience but you need the experience to get the job!

Great blog.

(laughing) well, I guess this post revealed that i'm not 'truly cool' :-)

Evelyn Rodriguez

Funny, I got that too. Just the button logo in my email. Nothing else.

I replied back: "Hi Bill, Anything more than just the button? Curiouser and curiouser..."

Never heard squat back. I think the truly cool could care less about someone 'tagging' them cool. I even remember reading as much in The Anatomy of Buzz. But yet, that book says while the cool start the trends, it's not they but the "bees" (early majority) that spread it like pollen.

Thanks for shedding some light on that enigma for me ;-)
