Description

You may be familiar with the Top Gear CoolWall, but not all of us watch TV that comes from the UK.  Sometimes those of us in the US just like the idea and make our version and stick Steve Carell in it.  Well, Steve Carell didn't make it for this adventure, but recently a US-based developer took a prototype of a Christmas-themed CoolWall (incidentally prototyped by a UK-based agency) and released it in production mode.

We caught up with him at his house and got the story on why he did this and what we can do with the Christmas CoolWall.

Go to his blog for more of the boring technical details or head over to the CoolWall to create your own Christmas wishlist.

Then send it to a friend.  They need to know what would be "Seriously UnCool" to give you.

      Yeah, the same person is filling both positions.  That is supposed to be fairly obvious.  The interviewer belittles the programmer, and the programmer acts all bewildered, as if the interviewer is weird, but in reality he's just making fun of himself.  That's why it's funny.
