gapingvoid has been assimilated!

[ "Art Money". Part of the Blue Monster Series. Backstory from Steve and Kris etc.]

I'm pleased to announce that I have a new client. A small software concern in Redmond, Washington. An offshoot of the Blue Monster conversation we've been having.

So what has this cartoon got to do with software? I'll explain later. Watch this space.

Took them long enough. Congrats!

Wow! The gapingvoid to oblivion.

So, destiny has found you, huh? Sort of like when Johnny Depp (Captain Jack Sparrow) accepts getting eaten up by the "beastie" at the end of the 2nd Pirates of the Caribbean movie?

Call it a hunch, but I don't think oblivion is in your future.

Best wishes, Hugh! At least I can say, "I (barely..hardly...OK, not at all) knew you when.

Oh, this will be fun! Are you going to Redmond to get some insight? Tell them to get rid of the posters in all the lobbies. They suck. Rip them all down and put up one of yours. :-)

Interesting start, comparing your new client to the Borg.

I look forward to the results. Could they look a bit like "Seven"?

Hopefully you will now receive lots of suggestions from partners for cartoons to express the conversation they want to be had with M$FT
