Ning: Wednesday Feb 15 is International Annoy Marc Andreessen Day

From Wired, there is a certain irony in using Ning to annoy one of its founders, but although I really do like annoying people, I don’t think I will be able to make it.

The trigger for the event was Marc telling an anecdote to analysts, that because somebody came to visit once, Ning took their sign off the door. In his opinion, one of the great things about internet businesses is that you never need to meet your customers. It is always good to see the nerd ethos of shunning human contact thrives at all levels of the Internet community.

Update: the “unannounced visit” is on the official Ning Blog. In the same blog, there is a Ning Magic 8 Ball. I am not sure if it is a one off in-joke, or a really cool piece of conference schwag.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

    Be prepared to walk out of the dealership if it can not be met.

    The US Customs brokers can also be approached for help in transporting used cars in USA for
    export and all international as well as local and federal rules must be checked thoroughly while operating this business.

    Similar to almost any product you can imagine, the best and most convenient place
