A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

    After awesome geek gadget blog Gizmodo decided to write about The Seven Types of Employees You Meet at Best Buy, a Fortune 500 company. Best Buy’s CMO, Barry Judge, decided to respond and gets his own back with a “One Type of Gizmodo Blogger‘.

    Barry Judge’s response is remarkably accurate, and not just for a Gizmodo blogger (ahem..):

    “You’ll find this guy on his couch, sporting an ironic t-shirt with a delivery-food stain of some kind. He “commuted” minutes earlier by rolling out of bed and over to his laptop in his shoebox-sized Brooklyn (Williamsburg) apartment littered with empty Redbull cans. He came to Gizmodo 9 months ago after deciding that “traditional media” wasn’t edgy enough (read: required pants and didn’t like it when he powered down walls of TVs). He only puts on pants in order to put electronics down them, and he gets very upset if you mess with his Star Wars legos. He genuinely believes that the hot PR girl is into him and not just trying to get a post. He overuses the word “fail.””
