I wish I had a clue about Mediocre a year ago. I totally would've gotten into it, retweeted, Kickstarted, Seligmaned, etc. Guess I have to wait another ten years for Matt to sell meh and start another site.
I was feeling bitter about missing this, and the Kickstarter, and the Seligman experiment . . . but I remembered I'm in an even more exclusive group. I got an answer from Irk. There's only 4 of us (so far). We were promised a trinket or bauble of extremely low value. What could be cheaper than a shiny new badge?
You know what meh? Me not RTing this a year ago is all your (and @studerc's fault). You guys did a poor job of letting me know you even existed. The breakfast octopus was enough to summon me to the dark side.
@patti Same here! I had no idea that Mediocre existed until I heard about the Kickstarter campaign. Then I was allll over it. I became a woot member back in July 2005, so I definitely would have supported them all along if I'd known about them. :-/ Oh well, I hope that the ones who did retweet it on the right date get something awesome and unmediocre out of it.
@duodec Well, I've had a twitter account for years, but I didn't do much with it. I didn't even know about the NDA or his release from it because I failed to keep up with the important stuff. I'm very, very lame.
I am so, so, so tired and exhausted, falling asleep on my feet. Yet, I'm forcing myself to stay awake until midnight to see what the Twitterers (Twits?) get first dibs on. :::sigh::: This damn well better be worth it otherwise it's all your fault @studerc.
@bluedyn I still don't know what the DM is. We just got a message asking us to confirm an address. "sending something silly" was mentioned. It was NOT Experiment 4928, according to that tweet I linked. As far as I can tell, 4928 was carried out in the simplest way possible. We retweeted it, and knew to look for something today 9/17/14 because of that. Nothing secret or dubious or serious. It's meh, least amount of effort, most amount of speculation ;)
@Thumperchick The tweet neither confirms nor denies the experiment since I wasn't in on the experiment. Maybe tomorrow/later today someone official will clarify what it actually was. And yes, the speculation is rampant. Often without resolution. Meh
So that explains the DM asking for my address. I forgot I did that but looked back and there it was. What is interesting is my Twitter handle and this are different. Nice experiment mediocre and thanks
