In July, I posted the following tweet:
“I’m announcing a campaign against the verbal habit of injecting the word “right?” after each sentence. Let’s earn agreement, not prompt it.”
My Twitter feed is connected to my Facebook page, and there were a couple dozen responses in support of the movement. At least that’s what I recall. But it’s worth examining this phenomenon in more than 140 characters.
Shawn and I can talk each other’s ears off about all the crazy things going on around us. Whether it’s the game industry, the broader tech industry, or geekery at large, we generally can’t wait for one to stop so the other can comment.
Part of it is that we’ve been around the same block. Between us we’ve run a game conference, a law firm’s game practice, and a game trade magazine. We’ve done biz dev at a traditional publisher and a handful of social game startups. One of us wrote a novel, and the other created his own startup.
We have a lot bouncing between Moledina and Foust, so we decided to go social with it. And because we’re huge geeks who try not to take ourselves too seriously, naturally, we are SoMoFos.
We hope you enjoy or hate our blog.
