I keep expecting to see young people crossed legged in the street, with a laptop instead of a guitar, cap full of coins on the ground and a piece of cardboard that says “Will Blog for Broadband, must have Facebook Access“. Not sure why I mentioned that. Heh.

If they are mean to you, let me know and we’ll be mean right back. But they seemed perfectly nice… for PR people… *evil chuckle*
