Amazon's fake blogger T.E.D.
Ted, the Amazon blogger I posted about a few days ago turns out to be a PR experiment rather than a real person. Seattle Post Intelligencer: "'Without going into whether the content is factually accurate or not, what I can tell you is that it was not an individual's personal blog. It was a recruiting message that we put in the form of a blog to experiment,' Curry said." They've taken the fictitious blog down. Maybe "Ted" was an acronym for Targeted Enlistment Device.
