Montreal's Sexiest Geeks of 2007

Wow! This is an absolute riot. I’ve been nominated by the Montreal Gazette as one of Montreal’s Sexiest Geeks of 2007!

The competition is pretty stiff, including my good friend Casey McKinnon who has included me in the fun that is Galacticast, and the admittedly uber-sexy Jade Raymond.

Still, I’m for certain the alpha-geek on the roster, since I’m probably the only person who codes on that list!

(OK, OK, Jade is a coder too: she has a Bachlor’s degree in Computer Science from McGill. But she probably doesn’t code anymore these days since she’s now a “game producer”. ;-) )

So vote for me! I’ll reduce taxes! ;-)

I’d like to interrupt my blogging haitus to bring you this special message:

Some time ago I noticed that Gmail was soliciting fan video submissions for a promotional video they were putting together. I thought it would be hilarous for Cat’s Corner to submit a shot of the Gmail envelope being passed around a Swingout, and so we did it.

Well, it turns out that over 1100 fan clips were submitted, from 65 countries… Pretty small odds to be selected for the final cut!

But fast forward to today: Our submission made it onto the final cut, AND it was selected for the Thumbnail image! Amazing! I’m so proud… *sniff* Alain and Ann are now worldwide celebrities! :)

Thanks for putting it together, guys.

Edit Thurs. August 30th: It looks like they changed the thumbnail image today. Oh well, at least we had 24 hours of fame. :)

Edit Fri. August 31st: The original thumbnail pic is back! Wonder what the gmail video folks are up to?

There comes a time in the life of a Startup Founder where he has to do things to gain notoriety for his startup.

Things that may be unconventional. Things that might raise eyebrows. Things that he might want to hide.

But since I’m involved in Internet Video, I can’t hide anything. So I might as well as let it all out.

So I present… “Found”, the latest episode of Galacticast. (Or it would have been the latest episode had I been able to publish this post on time, haha.) This time I actually have 3 roles, and speaking ones at that. Whatever possessed Rudy and Casey to cast me in 3 roles, I have no idea. ;-) So without further ado, enjoy!

Here’s the YouTube version, but the quality is not so great so I’d recommend you watch the higher quality version on the Galacticast website.

Check it out, I’m in this week’s Galacticast! Galacticast is an award-winning weekly comedy/parody show based in Montreal, produced by Rudy Jachan and Casey McKinnon. Just plain awesome.

Here’s the YouTube version, but the quality is not so great so I’d recommend you watch the higher quality version on the Galacticast website.

OK, so this is not tech-related, but the show is produced by Montreal Tech Community members… and besides, I’m in it. So there. ;-)
