We all laughed heartily today when we heard about Eli's misfortune, which he describes in his blog entry I'm in Redmond. If it weren't for a first-hand account (he was standing in front of us later today, having arrived in the right Redmond), this story would be too crazy to be true.
From the shits and giggles department: Codename "Spang". What the sound of a Buffalo wing hitting a dish can get started... all you need is a couple of crazy Brits, preferably geeks, sitting together for dinner in a steakhouse. All the craziness about this also can serve as a nice lesson to various people who constantly "wave candy in front of a diabetic" so to speak (yes you, the one blogging about the cool stuff only you have access to). Spang also stirred a debate on Channel9 (read).
