Quick a little history: I was submitted to the “Hot Blogger Calendar” thingy. I find that funny. I find it funnier that I’m actually getting votes.
My boss over at Linux Journal sends me this “Press Release” for the Brain of Shawn readers… Ain’t the Internet a funny place? (I wasn’t going to mention the hot blogger thing, as it seems self serving, but the Wil Wheaton angle makes me laugh)
Yeah, I work with fun people.
UPDATE: Now the LJ Press Release was submitted to Digg.
