I'm in a college textbook!

April 27, 2007

Pete’s sister was taking a business communications class and one day, he turned to me and said that I was in her textbook and they were talking about me in lecture. Nice! I wonder what they had to say 🙂

She’s visiting Pete this weekend and she brought the book along. It’s called Business Communication, Building Critical Skills, and it’s written by Kitty O. Locker (of Ohio State booooo :p ) and Stephen Kyo Kaczmarek.


It’s only a quick reference in the book, but I am curious to know when people are discussing my story in class. If you’re a professor or if you’re a student in a class about this stuff, let me know; I’m always happy to discuss these things 🙂

    Ahah, funny actually to see that you’re mentioned in books and actively discussed in classes.

    You’re gonna be cited from now on on web communications stuff. You’re there to be a reference. =)

    Hey Mark,
    Your also in my text book that i have to read for uni….
    “Ethics in Information Technology” by George Reynolds – we had to read a case study on you and your time at Google. Its funny how something so innocent can turn into something that has changed company blogging policies forever.
    See you,
    Melbourne, Australia
