After writing this article about Amazon’s new “Search Inside the Book” feature I was contacted by a New York Times reporter on Friday last week who interviewed me about my experiences using Amazon and how the new search feature affected me. Then, on Monday, the New York Times called back and said they wanted to do a photo of me for the article. How could I say no? Sure enough, a very nice photographer visited casa nonfamous that evening and proceeded to take some cheesy shots: me leaning back on a chair in the office with my feet on a stack of books while gazing casually into the camera (as you do); me in the sitting room with a cocktail in my hand and a laptop on my lap casually searching Amazon; that kind of thing. She took two rolls of film, and luckily the final result is only somewhat cheesy rather than exceedingly cheesy. I’d love to see the other shots she took. She’s a wedding photographer too, she says, so we might take a look at her portfolio — there might be some business for her in May.
And so, the article appeared in the New York Times today. Well, it’s on the website today, and it appears in the Circuit section tomorrow (Thursday). Guess I’ll pick up a copy or two, eh? 🙂
www.nonfamous.com got a brief mention in the article, so I if you’re a first-time visitor as a result of the article, welcome! Leave us a brief comment if so, we’d love to know how many people had their curiosity piqued by our little site.
