The Oprah Winfrey Show that I turned down is airing today. Upon retrospect, I’m glad I turned down the offer to appear as a guest, now that I know who their other guests were. Notice how they spun the gist of the show from “People Who Got Fired From Their Jobs Because of the Internet” to “Should They Get Their Jobs Back?” The talks I had with their producers and the web page that was soliciting people’s stories clearly were targeting Internet-related firings. Interesting.
Well, that didn’t take long. I got my first Epinion spam today. [Clearly, this spammer isn’t aware that the CEO of Epinions reads CamWorld.] See my entry for the 13th that predicts this.
Kudos to the Epinions folks for their fast action on the spam I received. [Actually, I didn’t even report it. It turns out there are several people at Epinions who read CamWorld.]
