Spewker Shines Spotlight on.... Reuters?

I haven't slept in more than twenty-four hours. Daylight is starting to seep through the glass block. You'd better believe this week's spotlight is going to be brief.

Who is Reuters anyway? A nameless faceless news conglom? Or should I say Thomson Reuters, its humanized merger moniker? Good old Thom is so massive it now maintains a presence on Second Life and has the company portal to prove it.

Go ahead, laugh about Second Life if you dare. Five years from now, you'll be sorry you didn't claim a smidgen of territory in that virtual wasteland. Yes, there's money to be made in a world existing only in your laptop, even Reuters knows that. Just because hardly anyone else knows it shouldn't deter one from staking a claim.

Gotta love a virtual news pioneer like Reuters. Is it pronounced "roiters," "rooters" or something else? People keep telling me different ways to say the name and I can never seem to get it right.

Oh, what the hey, does it really matter? This mega behemoth doesn't need a plug from The Spewker. But we so need a plug from them. Glory, glory hallespewya, our prayers were finally answered with little fanfare, just a link which is all we ask for a dip in our spotlight.

Yes, one day I looked up from the funk of my keyboard and there it was. The recognition we've been so desperately seeking susan. Reuters transformed one of our raggedy spewked articles into one of the chosen. It was magical really. I was completely floored.

Jimmy Kimmel and Susan Silverman. Sure saw that one coming down the pike. Does anyone think multiple Technorati links had anything to do with this? Hasn't helped publicize this blog on Technorati, that's for darn toot'n.

Ha! At last, I can rest my weary hide.

Oh yeah, Thom, baby, email me for the award code at the address at the bottom, or simply target and save the picture below, yada yada yada.

Meanwhile, mention this blog, yada yada, link yada... you readers have to know the drill by now.
