Holy cow, I wrote a book!
Late Tuesday night,
Jenny Lam, the creative director for
this year's PDC,
came by our hallway
and asked for permission to rummage through our offices for "stuff".
They were looking for props to use to decorate a developer's cubicle
in a video they were filming for the conference.
I was able to loan her a framed letter of appreciation and my
pass to the Windows 2000 launch.
I used to have a lot more junk in my office, but I went on a cleaning
binge during our last office move and the really cool mementos ended up
at my house.
If you watch the movie and squint you might be able to make out my name
on the personalized items,
but I wouldn't hold my breath.
My stuff will be on screen for probably a quarter of a second,
and I'm guessing it
won't be big enough to read anything of significance.
(Jenny tells me that
one of the things in the cubicle is a forgery. See if you can spot it.)
They were able to get much cooler stuff from
my neighbor's office.
Among other things, he had a chemical model of
the caffeine molecule.
Incidentally, Jenny puts my Martha number at two.
I've met Jenny, and Jenny was personally interviewed by
I just think that's so neat, being two steps away from The Martha.
