I don’t usually revise posts dramatically once they are done, but I’m making an exception in this case. You see, it appears that our little challenge that we set up for the speaker pool at @media has had some interesting results. If you aren’t sure what exactly we are all referring to, Andy Clarke explains the @media speaker challenge very well.
The interesting bit is that doing this has vaulted these sites to the top of Google search results pages (I won’t link to the searches, but you can certainly figure out how to get the search results). I guess that isn’t too surprising, but what concerned me the most is that without at least some decent explanation, or some other context/content, we might be seen as trying to trick the search engines. And that wouldn’t be cool.
Again, here’s the original list, in order from first speaker to last speaker. Cindy Li has also posted a photo of our @media word list. And, as Molly mentions, it was too bad that Robin wasn’t able to play along. He couldn’t make the dinner, but would have done a bang-up job with whatever word he was handed, I’m sure.
