    Small Business magazine. A vendor asked me to answer a few questions and I ended up being featured in the article.

    LUCKY! I've been in the newspaper a bunch of times, but never a nationwide magazine.

    Congrats.

    [edit] I just noticed they had a huge picture of you. I would be more nervous.

    Pretty cool Randy. My 15 minutes of my life so far was having my name in the Daily Texan...

    I never imagined there was a living to be made bidding on words. Amazing!

    Of course there is. I also manage the sales force, responsible for the web site and in-house developed software, partner marketing with a few huge, household name web sites, design and price coverages and an occasional mopping of the floors.
    :D :D

    What's "floccinaucinihilipilification" worth, then? To the nearest dollar? I've got a bunch of those! :D

    That's cool!! And its Fortune magazine, not just some local paper! :eek: They don't get much bigger, so congrats.

    I was actually in the paper last week, but it was a small blurb about me as a research student and how I won a scholarship. They don't mention much, and there are no quotes from me. It was also in my regional newspaper, not one of the major papers around here (ie: not Sydney Herald or anything). However, while this one was small, soon a paper is going to print a "real" article about me, with much more detail, quotes from me, and a picture of me as well!! :)

    But once again, it won't be on a national newspaper. :eek:

    I was featured in a six page article in Charlotte Magazine a couple of years ago... :)

    Nice article, sounds like you deserve the national attention. Now I know what it means when I go "clicking.' A nice honor Randy. ;)

    As the saying goes "there's no such thing as bad publicity" - only true up to a point, of course.

    Great job. Hopefully it will bring you a few lucrative offers :D

    As for my 15 minutes of fame, I think that I must have blinked, so I missed it. Oh well, maybe in my next lifetime.
