Hump Day

I've got an all day meeting on the glories of Media Asset Management. I know, I know, you are all jealous.

Until then, I have something for you, yes, you, the loyal Cruft reader to do.

I check the referrer logs of the site religiously and see that the site gets viewed by many people. Yet, most of you are strangely silent.

A few days ago I read this Geekychick.net post about blurkers. In the post she defines blurkers thusly:

Blurker (BLUR-kur): n. 1. One who reads many blogs but leaves no evidence of themselves such as comments behind; a silent observer of blogs. 2. One who reads many blogs but has no blog of their own; a blog-watcher or blog voyeur.

I fear this describes many of you. Today, your job is to raise your hand and say hello and emerge from blurkerhood.

Click on the Comments link below and post answers to these three questions.

1) What is your name?
2) What is your quest?
3) What is your favorite color?

Special bonus question: What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

I expect plenty of answers when I check the weblog tonight.

Don't make me post your IP addresses...
