Rand Fishkin: Industry mastermind!

There was a lot of excitement around our office last Thursday. I happened to mention that industry superstar Rand Fishkin was popping in for lunch with his scrumptious wife, Geraldine.

Were it not that I'm a totally fair gentleman, I may have considered selling tickets for a seat in the board room ;-)

Rand unveiled his newest tool, Linkscape, at SMX, East and what a seriously fun tool this is! Now Google won't let me drop in and mess around with their connectivity server... But Rand will! So, I'm really excited about the opportunities to do some serious link analysis and research for the upcoming tome.

So, Rand is a serious technology guy... But he can't help himself when he sees a whiteboard. I think maybe crayons played a big part in his life. Because you have no idea how quickly he picked up the marker pens in the boardroom and started to explain Andre Broder's bow tie theory to the assembled group.

What I thought was a bit of a mystery, was the, hangman from the scrotum, little graphic, he doodled for us :-)

Anyway, after a swift visit, half a sandwich for Rand and half a lettuce leaf for Geraldine, they swooped up to the top of the building. And no doubt, after their Sleepless in Seattle moment at the top of the Empire State Building... they swooped into the nearest bar a for much needed hair of the dog.

Rand, thanks so much for dropping by. Great to see you. And Geraldine, you simply light up any room. I hope you and Rand are very happy together, forever.
