Small World theory works even in Hollywood!

Aint it nice when you get mails back from people you didn't expect.

I mailed Brian Herlinger about a film that has just come out in the States called "My Date with Drew". It is apparently very good and whatmore it uses the concept of Zero Degrees of Separation for the guy to connect with Drew Barrymore. I wanted to know when i gets here - perhaps expecting an automated answer of some type.

Well, about 20 minutes later i got a mail from Jon Gunn, a co-producer of the film. It will be in the UK sometime near the end of the year.

And because I have now made contact with the guy i will be making sure i let other people know about it when it does arrive. Weird what connecting with people (every very briefly) does... seems to work very well! (wonder if it does in the film with Drew...)

Busy, busy, busy

I've not posted for a few days now, but i've barely left my PC.

I'm working on something that only just ocurred to me last week. I'm not sure whether it will be as big as I hope, but i'm going to get a prototype out and see what you folks think.

Put it this way - for the first time in history I was able to tell my wife and best friend what I planned to do - and they got it. I figured - hell, i better see if anyone else thinks it would be useful.

I wish I could say more, but my old habit of announcing first, fixing later has finally been reversed. If you have a mobile phone anywhere in the world, I'd be interested to hear from you.

I'll be needing some people to test some things out for me.
