They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
I've got a phone that sometimes works and an email account that I can't remember. Best way to reach me - just COMMENT below. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
i hadn't checked my email for awhile... yeah, it was a busy week. This is my "junk" email account, an old email address that I use for when I have to sign up for pages, like facebook and twitter. I'm scrolling through the endless offers for Mortgage refinancing, Enchancement Pills, and Free Offers for stuff I don't want when a title grabbed my eye, "LEGAL NOTICE OF SETTLEMENT OF CLASS ACTION."
And when I opened the email, here's what I read:
I'm involved in a Class Action Lawsuit Against facebook? WHAT?!?!
It turns out that when facebook decided to use members' pictures in ads without their permission, facebook was in the wrong. To avoid having to take the case to court, Facebook offered $20 million and the court approved the settlement. Users have been getting an email from “legalnotice@” informing them of the lawsuit.
What do you get if you're involved in the lawsuit: maybe ten bucks. That's what happens when 150 million users claim their cut, but it’s better than nothing.
