The hahaha! guy

(viewed 2043 times)
Bookmark and Share
Hello. I'm nige, moblogger of 5+ years and recently described by mat as a "super-user". That made me chuckle. Let's just say that I spend a lot of time on this site and I love it. Photography is my fire and it is fuelled by Moblog.

I have recently been appointed as one of the site administrators. My main focus is to open up the lines of communication between management and community. It is going very well so far (mostly because of the amazing team of volunteers that have heeded the call-to-action) and all I can say is that if these management guys continue to be as open as they have been, they are going to make me look extremely good at my new (unpaid) job. I am all for that. I will also be working with beth on some creative ideas for Moblog groups.

Who am I?
I'm the hahaha! guy. About 50% of my moblog comments are a derivation of hahaha! or contain a hahaha! somewhere in the sentence. It's not that I haven't got anything else to say, it's just that I find so many things hilarious and a LOL or a LMAO does not have the same effect for me. This is exactly how I am in real life too, and people who meet me always comment on my laugh. It's big, it's buxom and it has some range. I laugh a lot.

I am also the Moblog projects guy. I think Alfie and jc1000000 can stake fair claim to this title too, but this is my profile and in my profile I am the projects guy! I love coming up with silly little proposals and then trying to convince the Moblog community to take part in them. Jump club, Interview52, Quotation and 365 project (or dailyme - mat's affectionate moniker - as it came to be known) are some of my inceptions. I have also just started 2-minute tour. Not original ideas, granted (though original ideas are coming, honest), but I set them up because there is something special about seeing this community share of themselves. The results are always entertaining.

The type of posts that I highlight:
Anything that pleases me. From great photography to quirky signs & shopfronts, or anything unusual. I will often be found digging in the annals of lesser known mobloggers for old gems. Euphro recently called it "highlight archaeology" which, I think, coins the activity to perfection. I am very fond of the past; a caretaker of memories, if you like. That is why I love photography so very much.

Groups I think you should look in on:
Electric Wheelchairs, Street Phon'ography, Shadows and Stencils are all very dear to my heart and contain some eccentric images that appeal to my sense of the surreal.

Blasts from the past:
I would like to see people posting to the Mirror group more often. Puddlepuff also created a funny group called SayMoblog! and I would love to see more activity in there. So far harimanjaro (aka Farnham's Ken Rockwell) and I remain the only people on that blog who actually pronounce the word "Moblog" correctly...

The single most inspiring event on Moblog:
Any time I meet a fellow moblogger I am always invigorated, but if I had to choose one event it would be the day I turned my back on a decade-long career as a headhunter and launched as a professional wedding photographer. Moblog inspired me to do it, such is the power of this community. We can move mountains.

Speaking of moving mountains, here's a question from a Microsoft interview for you. This is the kind of pretentious armoury I used to interview people with back in the day. See if you can think like a potential Microsoft employee. Just a bit of fun:

Q: How would you move Mount Fuji?*



Answer at the bottom of the page.

Miscellaneous:
Enormously curious. Asks lots of questions. Prankster. Highly competitive. Stays seated in a cinema until the end-credits have rolled. Rides backwards on trains. Will build a home with my own bare hands in the next 10 years.

Moblog has rewarded me, time and time again, during my five years here. I cherish the community, and giving back to it is something that means a lot to me; I am going to work hard to do that in my new capacity. Moblog is such a wonderful platform for self-expression and I hope you will join us in helping us to further unlock it's potential.

Please feel free to drop me a line for a chat, or if you have any issues at all. And if I should drop a hahaha! on your moblog at any point, please don't feel self-concious; it's just how I express myself ; )


*A: One piece at a time. (Accepted answer by Microsoft)

Thanks Nige. Nice to see the profile. I'm a bit disappointed in Microsoft's answer though.
