Weeknotes 108 - Jeff
- Every week I make a note on my phone where I add ideas for what to write about. This week’s note consisted of a single word: Jeff.
- Someone addressed me as “Jeff” in an email. Their email was a response to my email, signed as “Nat”. I’d like to think they were amusing themselves by making a little Jeff Buckley joke to themselves rather than doing a poor copy-paste job and sending me the same response they presumably sent to Jeff.
- My partner found this so amusing that we started using Jeff as a way of calling out the chaotic evil energy I sometimes bring to our relationship. ”Why did Jeff leave the wrappers all over the table?” etc.
- Many years ago I was trying to be funny on Twitter and changed my display name to “Jeff Catwood”, referencing the famous programmer, Jeff Atwood.
- I must have happened to have said something either funny or profound enough to end up being quoted in someone’s blog post. In all earnestness they attributed the authorship of that tweet to no-one other than Mr Jeff Catwood.
- Twitter Analytics might be fully featured when it comes to analysing ROI, but upon closer scrutiny it misses, uh, a handful of features. Like the ability to update your display name. Once you enable Analytics for your Twitter account, whatever display name you were using at the time is the name Analytics will be calling you forever. It doesn’t matter what my display name is now. What matters is that to Twitter for biz I will always be Jeff Catwood.
- It’s my own fault, really.
