daniel delaney just tweeted:
rt @mashable: founder of private web storage site drop.io, sam lessin (@lessin) launches yet another storage startup: cumberb.un
this was a cleaver joke back to a funny dinner conversation a month or two ago when we decided it was time to bring back the cumberbun as a fashion accessory ideal for storing tech accessories, and critically, for unfinished leftovers from classy restaurants (in a resealable reheatable pouch).
but... it took me a few min to get the joke, and i must admit that i spent a few min poking around mashable ready to reject the ridiculous claim that i had started a 'storage' company
which leads me to the humorous bit that while i love running around town talking about how people read identity into all sorts of unverified/non-identity rich system, i just got had by the same mistake.
rt is a great way to misappropriate authority
...refutable, sure - about the same as saying billy told me it was true -- but it still works as we re-adjust our expectations online.
