Virality

I was in the middle of a chat with Clay, a new offline friend and future client, when the cameras appeared. Oh, the paparazzi are after.  The camera set up shop at the table next to us.  As they were filming, the interviewer asked nicely enough if we could keep quiet.  As the crew was setting up, Clay recognized the girl.  "Your from that viral video, right?" he asked.  How many hits?  15 million.  I hadn't seen it.

We went for a walk a ways around the neighborhood.  When we returned, we grabbed some coffee back at the place.  The girl came up and introduced herself.  She apologized for the hushing, but we just laughed.  The girl Marina had done a video of her quitting work.  We chatted a bit about the 15 minutes.  She was pretty sanguine about the whole thing. She had also lived in Taipei, and I knew her former company, which made me laugh.

Anyway, here is Marina's viral video:





Well done Marina, we should all be so creative with our ways of quitting.  I just seem to come up with creative ways of getting fired.  See under: the window-washing incident.
