Download Day 2008Today I pledged to help Mozilla set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in 24 hours. This is a great marketing idea. It’s free, easy, and viral. Truth be told, because it’s so easy to do, I’m kind of surprised at how low the current pledge count is. It’s just over 615,000. But since there’s no set date as to when this download day is, there’s time to sign up! So come on! Those Mozilla folks need nicer cars.

Oh, why would this be another world record? Because I helped set the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest group yodel. Yep, 1773 of us crammed into URL’s Cafe, yodeling our butts off. Good times…

Free Comic Book DayIt's that time again. Yes, folks, it's time to book your calendars for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Yes, that was written in all caps. Yes, I'm quite aware that is equivalent of screaming in text. And yes, it was totally worth it…

This means that on May 5th, I'll be hanging out at Hijinx. Does this mean I have to drop the "closet comic book reader" tag? Or should I just retitle myself as a "graphic novel" reader?

Marvel Comics will submit 2 books for the event. The more widely distributed of the two falls right into my zone. Amazing Spider-Man: Swing Shift-cbd Edition
by Dan Slott, Phil Jimenez, & Andy Lanning

Sweet…
