    Didn’t Taco also do a Slashdot Poll along the lines of:

    Will you marry me?
    • Yes
    • No

    Then rigged the buttons so even if you clicked “No”, it would come out as “Yes”.
    So the poll results were something like 12,000 “Yes”, 0 “No”.

    Anyway, geeks in love. (sigh)

    Mr Doctorow, just noticed it:  What’s with the accent on famed, as in faméd?  Surely a typo, but just checking.

    Funny, texting (SMS) was already big in Europe in 2002 from what i recall.

      Our awesome cell companies were charging us $0.15/per, sent or recieved, thus the low use volume until they started including it in our monthly plans.

    The proposal has held up better than Slashdot, that’s for sure.
