VentureBlog has some great stuff to say about Jonathan Coulton and CodeMonkey and, as usual, he’s right. As he points out, Jonathon has marketed himself in a particularly successful and simple way: licensing himself Creative Commons license, then blogs about his fans’ music videos, their using it on slideshows, remixing it etc. He’s also got some cracking songs to listen to. More power to him.
How can you not like this?
“Code Monkey get up get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
Code Monkey have boring meeting
With boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very dilligent
But his output stink
His code not ”functional“ or ”elegant“
What do Code Monkey think?
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write god damned login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy, just proud
Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
With big warm fuzzy secret heart:
Code Monkey like you”
