idiot namesake: applies for adidas job!

Do you think my idiot familiar will be successful in his application for a job at Adidas as a team leader?

I wonder if I can figure out how to withdraw “my” application?

What sort of mischief can I wreak upon this survey?

Good luck, idiot namesake!

stuff my idiot namesakes get emailed about

I have a pretty sweet gmail account – it’s my firstname.surname@gmail.com. Fortunately for me, I got in early and snaffled it way back when gmail was new. Unfortunately for me, there are other people around the world who share my name, and can’t seem to figure out what their own email address actually is. I suppose by entering mine into countless online forms, they hope that they will somehow claim it through sheer force of will.

Only now has it come to me though, that I really should be sharing with the world what my much stupider doppelgängers are doing with themselves.

They’re signing up for Pirate101:

More crap as it arrives.

holy shit, google wave looks amazing

I must say, after seeing the keynote presentation for Google Wave which was unveiled this morning, I can suddenly see how as latency and throughput of internet connections improve, new paradigms in communication will evolve. If you have the time (probably about an hour or so), check out the keynote presentation at the bottom of Google’s blog post on the topic.

Imagine the power of a rolled up real-time conversational and collaborative tool for anything from a quick chat to an ongoing team-based document creation effort. Complete with rich text, images, audio, video and pretty much anything else you can think of.
