The Nerds of Generation Y

Monday, August 4, 2008
Friend's g-chat away message: "The 'make the copy desk do it' mind-set seems to be outliving the concept of actually having a copy desk."

Me: What is your away message from?

Seriously dorky and lovable friend:
Bill Walsh's twitter account. Yes, he has twitter.

Me: Aaand, you follow it.

Seriously dorky and lovable friend (who is a copy editor): Noooooo. I just found out he had one when I looked at his blog and went on to it I will NOT follow a twitter account.

Me: Uh huh. The lady doth protest too much.

Dorky, lovable copy editor friend: :-P

UPDATE: Yeah, I put the wrong letter in the headline. Twitter is Y, not X. Oops.
