I’m always getting weird, wonderful and sometimes even weirdly wonderful search queries coming to my ‘blog. But then I also get some equally (if not more) weird referrer URLs coming in, too.
Take for example SiggiSim, which is currently just some ‘white label’ test system, claiming to offer: “User Powered Media Your Way.”
A quick Google reveals a guy called Siggi Simonarson touting for help and funding for his idea.
We shall see.
Then there’s Scout Labs, which offered a little more information by way of a quick Google, which uncovered a Craigslist job classified:
“We are in stealth mode until launch later this year, so can’t say too much in a job posting, but we are building a new way for people in companies to listen to and engage with customers out across the web.”
Additionally, there’s also a certain Shawn Smith, who appears to be a senior figure at Scout Labs turning up on LinkedIn, which doesn’t surprise me in the least.
Am I just one of gazillions of random samples of content pulled into their various test Content Management Systems? Or, are they looking for something? And am I it?
In the case of Scout Labs, might I be whisked off to some bay area spacious office complex in San Francisco?
Or might my only connection be this single log file entry?
Having a very keen, finely-honed sense of paranoia and being exceptionally conspiratorial, I have to wonder.
Now where the hell did I put my tin foil hat?!
