I wrote a post at midnight about our fun new game, Djubi. Today, I received an e-mail to let me know Djubi Nation is now following me on Twitter. For the record, whenever I write about my "Favorite Things" I'm writing about them because it is an item that we purchased (or received as a gift from friends/family) - use - enjoy - and feel good about recommending.
If I was receiving these items as gifts from a company with a request that I write a review in exchange for compensation or what not, I would definitely divulge that bit of information. In this case, Djubi is clearly using some kind of search program that scans for any reference to their name on the web.
But let's just think about this for a moment.
How many millions (billions?) of things are being posted per day on the internet? And Djubi Nation found my one itty bitty little post about our fun time with their new game? My mind boggles at not only the power of the internet, but the brilliance behind it.
Of course it scares me a bit, too.
Have you ever heard of the band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? I'd never heard of them until my buddy Stacey sent me a link to their fan page on Facebook. Three weeks later, I'm still not sure if this picture makes me laugh - or creeps me out.
A little of both, maybe?
Of their 100,000++ fans, more than 1,300 gave the picture a thumbs up. But as for MY fans, William thinks it's hilarious but both Carolyn and Elizabeth are upset there's a beer bottle on their brother's head.
If I've got the date correct, Charlie is due to appear on Supernanny one week from today, Friday, January 15, 2010 on ABC at 8:00 PM (7:00 central). He said the filming lasted for approximately 45 minutes, so if he even makes it on to the show, he doubts he'll be on the air for more than two seconds.
If you're planning to watch it ... Don't blink.
