In an earlier post I mentioned how interviews are interesting, original content and thus naturally attract links. Here’s a couple more interviews you may want to read:
Brett Tabke does a WebmasterWorld interview (free registration required) of Stephanie Leffler, the CEO MonsterCommerce, and at the same time gets to reveal the news that MonsterCommerce has been acquired by Network Solutions. Congrats, Steph and company!
And Aaron Pratt continues his streak by interviewing Greg Boser. My favorite quote:
… there will obviously be times where Matt and I disagree. He’s the gate keeper and I’m the guy trying to scale the wall so I can show everyone a poster with my client’s 1-800 number on it. That fact creates two distinctively different viewpoints on many issues.
If you want Greg’s different viewpoint on things, his blog is here. I have to bounce, so I’m going to save my Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom picture of Greg for later.
What, you want it now? Oh, alright.
Do you remember in the Temple of Doom movie where the priest reaches into some dude’s chest and pulls out their still-beating heart? Well, a few months ago, a Hungarian cloaker taught me how to do that. So I’m at Pubcon, and Greg Boser is standing right next to me, unaware. So I go for his heart!!
I reach into Greg’s torso and root around in there for like 30 seconds before I realize that Greg has no heart!! After a few more seconds, Greg notices and says “Hey, what are you doing?” And I say, “Um, nothing.” And Greg says “Oh, my heart. You’re trying to pull my heart out like in Temple of Doom, right? AltaVista tried to do that once, so I leave my heart at home when I’m going to be around search engine reps.”
Foiled! Just wait till next time, Greg. (BTW, thanks to Tim? Dax? whoever took the picture.)
