Striking it Rich

You know you've made it big in the web/blogging world when, in some sort of weird high-tech-to-low-tech backwards devolution, you get a book published. I know! Going from electronic bits to ink on dead trees is a sign of success. Apparently, if you have a Cool Idea™ that translates into lots of "hits", you can print out your words and scans and graphics and join the rare hierarchy.

So, like any other blogger who'd like to cash in on the book lottery, I toy with ideas that publishers and geeks would like. And I think I've come up with one.

Surrounded by geeks all day, I hear an amazingly wide variety of ringtones. I think I'll have people upload their ringtones and add witty comments to each. Then print all the ringtones and comments in a book.

Sounds like a winner to me.

I would buy that. You can tell a lot about a person from their ring tone.

Just don't print the musical notation of the ring tones, those have copyrights ya know. You really don't want to be served a lawsuit from the guy who composed the "A-Team" theme.

Still, this is a golden idea. You just know you would end up on "Good Morning America" or "Oprah"! :-)

I downloaded a ring tone designed by Marcel Marceau. Tragically, no one's called me since.
