So, the handsome fellow in the photo doing his best Executive Officer Kane impression is me almost 9 years ago at a blogfest. (The other fellow is my good friend, Rob Carr.) That accidental Alien re-enactment was photographed for my 15 minutes of fame in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, in an article about Pittsburgh bloggers meeting face-to-face (back when blogs were still a bit of a novelty).
This trip down memory lane was prompted by a new 15 minutes of fame in the new webzine NEXTpittsburgh. Far behind me are the days of writing for “one of the most interesting sites in the city”, according to Timothy McNulty (P-G reporter and mayoral communications manager), and there’s no awkward photo in the piece by Marty Levine (editor at Kidsburgh, among other jobs). In fact, there’s no photo of me at all, which is probably a good thing. 😉 Anyhow, it’s a good article about daddy bloggers in Pittsburgh and features a couple fine folks I know and a few I don’t. Be sure to read it if you haven’t already, and tell Marty I sent you. 🙂
P.S. I spend more time tweeting than blogging these days. Feel free to say hello. 🙂
