Guest-Starring: Frank Smadja

Today’s guest-star appearance was sponsored by Yoelle Maarek, for her geeky husband Frank Smadja. Yoelle writes:

Frank is a serial startupist – did his PhD in CS at Columbia University in the early 90’s – did a few startups and most recently is heading the branch of Toluna Israel – loves ajax, the Web, his Mac
Personal facts – he wears tank tops and shorts as often as he can – loves to cook, especially asiatic food (chinese, Vietnamese, Indian) – loves West African Music and his an avid trainer (gentle body builder) – he also sails and loves the sea.

Frank’s blog gave me additional insight – specifically when he listed one of his big pet peeves – when people type too slow during an Internet chat session. (I’m totally with Frank on this…)

Thanks again to Yoelle for sponsoring today’s comic! So now that you’ve seen Frank’s pet peeve, what would you say are your big pet peeves with regards to Internet chatting?


P.S. Frank’s avatar now appears on the PCW Guest Star Wall of Fame page. Will you be next?
