A Guy, a Girl, and a Blog

La Mom has a special guy in her life!

She met the guy back in her single girl days in La Silicon Valley.

We shared a love of pommes back then, still do today. We didn't know each other over at Infinite Loop, but we later met at Donna & Jeff's company.

Those gathered that hot summer day were listening intently to the guy speak about evangelism and competition. He had me at:

"EAT LIKE A BIRD AND POOP LIKE AN ELEPHANT" which was kinda what I was doing that day as I had gone to work with a bad stomach flu!

What the guy meant was: take in a lot of information and distribute it as largely and widely as you can.

So now I'm doing just that. Taking in a lot of info and distributing it all over France to English & French speakers.

Do you know what I'm talking about? Or who I'm talking about?

Here's a French hint or deux with the guy's translation:

Sacré Kaw! (Holy Kaw!)
Oh Merde! (Bullshitake!)

La Mom's special guy is.....GUY KAWASAKI.

Guy is La Mom's new boss. Wait, I didn't tell you I have a new job? I've just appointed myself ALLTOP Ambassador in France.
Guy is the co-founder of Alltop and I will be reporting directly to him in my new role. Wish me luck! (Visit Alltop France for All the Top France news.)

And there you have it - a GUY (Kawasaki), a GIRL (moi), and a blog (La Mom).

(Sidebar: I sure hope my blog gets listed on AllTop's France page. With this post, 2 Alltop badges, a widget, a blog roll, a book plug, 11 references to Guy's name, and a love of Apple computers, I should, right?)

Important Message from La Mom to Guy Kawasaki: As I ask you on Twitter, when are you bringing your Reality Check book tour to Paris? I've got a few managers from my Paris working girl days who I'd love to send signed copies to!

I was wondering, what is it in that bird food to cause such massive turds? LOL

Scandy no getty. (That's code for I'm techno-illiterate)

@Scandy No Getty:
This is such a kiss up post to get listed on Alltop (I hope)! I guess you're right - it's a bit tech slanted.
More dish later in the week.
