Dick Costolo’s Halloween Surprise

I was looking forward to getting up at 3:30am this morning and flying to Chicago for the FeedBurner board meeting.  At 1am I woke up with the feeling that a bug had crawled into my ear and was gnawing on my eardrum.  I suffered through the next few hours but at 3:30am decided I was unfit for getting out of bed and schlepping to the airport so I rolled over and slept some more.

I joined the FeedBurner board meeting by phone.  By the time it was over, I felt well enough to head to New York at the end of the day.  However, I missed the moment of truth at the board meeting when the board morphed into eight Dick Costolo’s.


That is just a scary sight.  Matt Blumberg can really be an mischevious person sometimes.
