Email To Bill Gates

Subject: Name for Bill Gates' new Blog
Date:7/2/2004 4:36:08 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Dear Mr. Gates,

When I read that you were considering starting a blog and adding “Blogger” to your already impressive resume, I immediately wondered out loud, “Hmm, I wonder what he’ll call it?”

Everyone knows that success in blogging starts with picking a really good name.

So in an effort to help you out, I had a, “What Will Bill Gates Call His New Blog” contest. We offer this winning entry free from any trademark constraints (however, you will need to register the name yourself).

The winner is: 2 (billion) dollar bill blog

We know your net worth is worth much more than that, but if you even put in a small amount of your valuable time we calculate your blog would be worth at least $2 billion by the time of the initial public offering.

If anyone can make a buck off blogging, it will be you, Mr. Gates.

Furthermore, I would like to thank you on behalf of my peers and IT professional friends who have made whole careers explaining your products or telling end-users to reboot whenever there is a glitch. You personally created the IT Helpdesk industry and millions bear that in mind.

Thank you for your time.

Most sincerely,
