CN Employee Update: Matthew Out, Pete In
A month ago this week and after raising our $52.5 million dollar Series A round, we hired our first new blogger. His name is Matthew and at first he did a great job. He worked really hard and stuck to his 2 nap per day deal. But then we started to see him slack off. The biggest change was that most of the time he was supposed to be working, he was secretly "liking" his father’s items on FriendFeed. He also created 142 FriendFeed accounts in a variety of different countries – all so he could help pops get more "likes". Unfortunately and after several written warnings (he claims he can’t read yet), we have decided to terminate his employment immediately. We are willing to renew his deal once he gets past pre-K.
But don’t worry folks. Over the past five days, we conducted a "CenterNetworks Blogger Idol" contest around the state of New York. After much deliberation and many Oreo cookies, we found a great replacement.
Her name is Pete and besides creating great written content, she is also a mega video star. Each day she moves up the ranks on Seesmic and is closing in on the man who looks like Santa Claus. Thankfully Pete already has an iPhone and a nice MacbookPro so this deal was much easier to finalize, all she wants is Web startup stickers. Now Pete isn’t as big a name as Morgan, Veronica, Justine or Natali yet, but all the other video show hosts better watch out, Pete is coming for ya!
Here’s Pete is her first CN video and you can view her Seesmic channel here. Please help me welcome Pete to the CN family.
