    THANK YOU! Finally, someone else who thinks the same way I do about that woman's utterly ridiculous delivery. What an annoying, condescending, irritating, needlessly-over-emphasising PAINFUL style of speech. I can't believe anyone thought this was OK?

    Just the thought of her, sitting in a recording booth, spouting into the microphone for hours on end... oh, it fills me with dread.

    I can't watch the other demos because the moment her voice starts, it's just too much for me to bear.

    During an Internal webcast Jon Miller said "head and longtail" like he was in an argument over what to drink. I swear every sentance had to have those words in it. After the 30th time I just shut the browser window it was so annoying.

    We should make a paperclip application, but use Scoble as the annoying little laughter elf down in the bottom of your screen. Smiley Or, how about a c9 guy desktop buddy. He just sits down in the corner of your screen and acts as an RSS feeder! Whenever a new video goes up, or a new thread is created, he flashes the name up on the screen in a little textbox thing.

    I'm going to start a thread on that Smiley
