Prostitute either way

Friday, October 7th, 2005

Hack-A-Day‘s parent company has been sold to AOL. We’re still an independent company. AOL won’t be doing any direction or censorship so things won’t be changing that much; we’re keeping the same management team. We will be getting better contracts and our checks will be from AOL (I have to stop throwing out their mail). Here’s our CEO’s summary of the last few days. Someone went so far as to break down the approx. $25 million sale per blog. I am head editor of a blog worth $1 million. In an IM with my mother I challenged her because she doesn’t think this is a real job. I got this reply:

I am ol the school that a job is something you can’t do in pajamas.–unless you are a prostitute, and pajamas probably don’t enter into that either.

Clothes on or off I’m as good as a prostitute; here’s a picture of me at work.
