Lockergnoming or just a lousy memory

14.03.2005 - 20:51 / filled under default

I've seen some people being upset with Crhis Pirillo's article about Lockergnoming.

Did I try to make some points by using Crhis? No. This is just one of my normal typos. As I do several others which I don't even notice until ... yes until I see good search engine results in high places for very common words. That's when I notice, that I probably - again - screwed up on words. So this is not always 'lockergnoming' but sometimes just a person typing fast.

Which is btw one reason you will not find so many fast typing errors on my side - I don't type as fast in English as I do in German. Therefore my usual mistakes (like nciht / nicht or every way to write my first or second name wrong) do not appear on this blog so much as they do on my other blogs. This blog is reserved for real spelling mistakes. ;)

And yes, most of the times I do correct them, unless they serve a very special purpose. Like the article "Great Honda-Add-Video!" . Why don't I correct it?

Go google for "Honda add" and you will find me in first place. :) Five to ten people search for this term a month, and I have, what they are looking for: the link to the spot.

And thanks to Chris for getting me to write that article: Seems as if Honda has taken down the video (again) :o( But! This site still has it.

A good ressource for the add itself and articles about is can be found at this page.
In case you where wondering: it is tv commercial = ad and not add.

This special Honda ad is one of the greatest done TV advertisements I have ever seen. In fact, I just have to revisit that site and take another look :))
