Internet Famous for a day

A short post but my friend and teammate Josh Wiseman is a Facebook engineering rockstar.  I know lots of engineers but few people are as excited about their work as Josh and while it can be a grind at times they are working on amazing products that touch millions of lives.  He has described some of the good and bad times at Facebook because no matter what you do people notice instantly.

He recently help launch the profiles upgrade that was featured on a Mark Zuckerberg interview on 60 Minutes.  As a part of that he wrote the launch blog post and featured his wife & wedding, our Ultimate team Revolver and a few Featured friends as examples of the new service.

I happened to be on the list of featured friends and Sunday night boom I start getting emails.  The first was notably from a reporter friend who covers technology space but then they started pouring in from friends all over the Valley.  My 15 minutes of Internet Fame is here.  I can only be thankful that I wasn’t on YouTube swinging a light saber or getting knocked over by a herd of rampages cute kittens.
