Please note: I didn't start the fire

The Uptake is hot hot hot this week, folks. So hot, I finally created a blog category - I know, right?

The latest press is a complete surprise - a nice mention from Mpls.St.Paul magazine.
Thanks to Reveille Mag for the tip. (Can someone tell me how to pronounce that, btw?)

Please note, I did not start The Upake. I know, I plaster my name and face all over it to drill the association into your pretty heads. But it was conceived by one Jason Barnett. You can read all about him and the rest of our team over here.

If you're really looking for a spunky time, join in the MNspeak thread about The Uptake and citizen journalism.
MNspeak, where "much of the posting is insider snark and unreflective." Heh.

Oh, come on, Chuck, everyone knows you invented the InterWeb. The glossy dead tree magazine said so!

I sent an email to Mike asking to join The Uptakes citizen journalism crew. No response. I guess my abilities arent needed or wanted by them. o well.

Thanks Chuck, what is amazing about The UpTake is our team, and I can say with absolute certainty that we would not be anywhere near where we are today without the Chuckster. You ROCK dude!

Would anyone like some coffee, or a beer?
I'll be in the corner knitting some pants.

What? No snacks?

A nice microbrew will do fine.

hey Chuck, Reveille is pronounced "Rev-ah-lee". pronounced sorta similiar to Beverly minus the R.

finally, i can say it in public without screwing it up!

Posted by: chuck at Oct 5, 2007 2:04:00 PM

Sorry Solace. The proper pronunciation (with how it's it spelled) would be "re-vey"

dont forget to roll that r when you do it too :)
