You are here.

My friend Tawana called to find out the status of the 10,000 visitor giveaway.

"You know what you should do," she said, "You should research it and let everyone know who sent in the entry from farthest away."

Tawana has a marketing background, and it totally freaks her out that 10% of MJ readers live in countries other than the US. I am less freaked than perplexed--I wouldn't exactly classify this mess as universal. Yet, in the last 30 days, I've offended readers in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Canada, the UK, France, the Russian Federation, Albania, and South Africa.

But, as I explained to Tawana, this isn't exactly like the high school reunion. One of the features of the interweb is that there is no farthest away. Mostly, it all comes down to who has to walk the most steps to get to their machine.

So, if you had to schlep into the neighboring village to use the library's communal computer to read my blog, please drop me a line and let me know.

I could scrounge up another prize for that.
