the horrible secret of soylent internet

by Violet Blue on October 2, 2006

A non-sex moment of slightly under-the-radar hilarity: apparently Cicso is running a little contest where us internets-users can vote for Cisco’s next ad campaign slogan. They asked a select handful of famous tube-wranglers (like Om Malik, Mike Arrington, John Battelle, sweet David Pescovitz, etc.) for their soundbite definition of “the human network” to get a tagline quote to use on a banner, and maybe more promo stuff.

The also asked my adorably subversive friend Phillip Torrone (the new Charlton Heston of the interwebs), whose quote I feel is the clear winner (I voted for him here). That would be a rad Cisco ad! Read what he said, and wonder if Cisco even gets it.
