Hehe. Did you notice you used masturbatory for Molly. Freud would have a field day lol.

I don’t understand the point. ¿Algún tipo de autopromoción?

@_Del.Real.:

Some type of typo too…
Nobody seems to care that Anthrompomorphize is either a made-up word or Anthropomorphize misspelled. Is it a clue? Arrggghh!!!

Hmmm. This has got to be something to do with Google.

Let’s give it three days, then Google each word, and see if they’ve bent the mighty engine to their will, hmmm?

In-crowd jokes from @media?

Hey, I live near Waterloo. Maybe I’ll mosey on down there and beat it outta them :)

Good luck bombing Google with “beefcake.” The porn industry will have none of that.

Oh GOD Andy, you were hilarious — and gutsy! That was so bold and brilliant

And, it was great meeting you and having dinner with you and all that malarkey (oh wait, different Andy… ;-))

I actually thought Jeremy’s was ‘inter-twingled’…

So it wasn’t just me who kept hearing ‘intertwingled’ then. Good.

I’m struggling to work out what all this is about but it could be something to do with all the ego-flirting at @media. You guys seem to have a lot of personal jokes going on between each other which is cool to see but difficult for the 400 other audience members to understand.

Anyway, great speech and good to see the Britpack keeping the WASP on our side. ;)

An explanation for the confused from that other Andy

Any chance of a transcript? I would love to see how you all managed to fit these words into your talks.

Richard said on June 14, 2005 5:19 PM

Now that it’s over… do we get to find out how they all relate?

Richard said on June 14, 2005 5:25 PM

:( nm, i just found out from the new post.
