Jimmy has spoken to some of these VCs and word has gotten around that he's none too bright and not really in charge anyway.

Why waste time on someone without decision making power?
Especially if he's also terribly full of himself and boring at parties...
Exactly. And he is terribly full of himself and otherwise completely boring at parties, since he only talks to people if they're in a position to do something for him, and only to try to get them to do that something. So you'd better either be rich, or hot, or else he'll ignore you like yesterday's mackerel.

No, not 'yesterday's mackerel", rather yesterday Merkey smile.gif

That's three-year-old fish. Consume that and you'll be unable to pilot an airliner.

I had the pleasure of meeting him in person at the old WMF offices some years back, and he completely ignored me tho' I was being introduced by Cary and Kat. Clearly I'm neither rich nor hot tongue.gif biggrin.gif

That is soooo quotable.

And it makes the Jimbo fan following all the more unbelievable....obviously I'm not prone to the kind of
emotional weakness that causes people to follow an equally-weak "messiah". Because this whole aspect
of the Wales existence is completely befuddling and bizarre to me. He's just like Jim Jones or L. Ron---
you just can't believe that such a pathetic schlub would become a "hero". They weren't even very
attractive men.

I'm beginning to wonder which WMF employee or WP admin would willingly die for Wales.
Because that's the next obvious step.

But you're obviously hot, Allie, so it's just that you're not Jimbo's "type" (not easily duped).

It's perfectly obvious.

Have you seen the pictures of the wikipedia gatherings?
The upper power structure of wikipedia, meaning employees and senior admins/arbcom, etc, make the atendees of a hardcore, cosplay Start Trek convention look like vanilla plain man-on-the-street type people.

The average wikipedia power player is JoshuaZ, ZScout, MONGO, David Gerard etc, etc

Jimmy Wales *is* a Mack Daddy by comparison.

Damn Alison, that's just really cold of Jimbo. On the bright side, though, you've got lots of other admirers - What's that psycho up to, didn't he just get out of prison again? confused.gif

Via e-mail, the office of San José Mayor Chuck Reed "appreciates" that I sent them the information.
