fleeting moments of fame


Apparently I'm mentioned in today's Wall Street Journal (US and Asian editions). It's part of the front page story in the Technology section (called "The Journal Report"); I'm featured in question #18 of the "20 Questions" story:

18. How do I start blogging? Like a growing number of citizens of the Net, Elizabeth Lawley, an associate professor of information technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology, has a blog -- a personal Web site where she posts a running diary chronicling everything from her Greek vacation to trips to conferences. While Dr. Lawley used blog software from Six Apart Ltd. called MovableType that is geared toward more sophisticated users, she recommends that first-time bloggers try services such as Six Apart's TypePad or Google's Blogger.

Many thanks to Ed Vielmetti for giving me a heads-up about the mention--I'd be interviewed by the reporter some time ago, and had completely forgotten about it.


You were also in eWeek [via Joi] and the Democrat and Chronicle [via Silandara] in the past couple weeks, did you see?

Congratulations; first Wired and now the Wall Street Journal, how cool are you! Now I have great bragging material for the holidays -lol-.

I remember Liz when she was a lowly college professor at some backwoods university in upstate New York, somewhere. She was different in those days..., before she sold out. :o)
Congrats. Your bandwidth may never be the same!

Congrats :)
