Not a very strong week. The rain this week means I’m not looking to do much better :-/ . I’ve still got a few weeks left to come in strong though, so not worried.
Firefox On TV
Even during the NY Times ad I would have never imagined a TV ad campaign running for an open source web browser. Yet somehow it managed to happen. It’s To bad the campaign so far is limited to only Boston/San Francisco. Hopefully New York and other cities in the US (and perhaps even abroad) will eventually be included. Despite that it is still very cool. Congrats to everyone who made that happen.
Where’s Rob: I’ve been omitted
Everyone loves those Where’s Waldo books. Well, if your good at them: I NEED YOUR HELP.
That’s right. Apparently I’m either missing, or out of place in the Ad. There are reports of a few names not in alphabetical order, as well as a few inverted (Lastname Firstname).
Your odds are about 1 in 10,000.
So: Who here can find me? The PDF is here. You can use anything at your disposal to perform this task, eyes, supercomputer, etc. provided it’s legal ;-).
FIREFOX AD IS OUT: 2 Full Pages!
Sweet. 2X the glory, 2X the fun, 2X the exposure. Stinks being in school, if I was working in the city, and on the train, tomorrow would be a fun ride seeing all the NYT papers open on the ride in!
Oh well… back to studying.
NY Times Ad
I originally heard it was looking like sometime towards the end of November…
Anyone know when it’s set to happen? Has it been set?
It costs as little as $10 to do, and can really help promote Firefox. It’s a great way to help promote the Fox. Not to mention the extra cash helps out the Mozilla Foundation. They make some great software.
Think about it:
How many other products are useful, innovative, stable, and low cost? Not many. With a few bucks you can help ensure Firefox gets some great exposure and more users. If only a small percentage donate some cash, that results in more fuel to continue development. The results are cyclical. You can start the positive cycle.
It takes as little as $10, and only a minute or two of your time. Spread the fox:

You know, a little while back I did a project that involved looking at New York Times on Microfiche from 1940’s… ads for wool underwear among other fun stuff. Imagine 100 years from now people seeing a Firefox ad with your name on it!
