Terry Chay Isn't Into Orgies...
So yesterday I’m listening to Ramblecast 2.0 when I did whatever the audio version of a double-take is. No, it wasn’t the garbled noise and the “what the —-?! Guys! There’s a laptop here!!”. Nor was it Sara’s Yahoo!’ing in the background (I wonder if that’s in her contract - she has to do that every time someone mentions the company?). No, it was when someone mentioned Terry Chay’s Internet is an Ogre talk. Not the e. Ogre, as in monster, Shrek, big green smelly thing.
I don’t know how many times I’d seen that topic listed by various people online, and every - I mean absolutely every time I read it - my mind transmuted it into orgy. Seriously. I hadn’t read the description of his talk, hadn’t attended it, and until yesterday had never heard anyone call it by its name.
I even had the whole idea of the talk worked out. Web 2.0’s all about sharing everything with everyone and right now everyone’s getting a little dirty. It made sense to me. Looks like I wasn’t the only one to make that mistake.
