Oct 16, 2013 Bill Nordwall commented on One Funny Thing About That Old Suzanne Dale Estey Story.
I remember getting her email when I was at WaMu. It was the first time anyone at the company had ever heard from her. There were so many internal complaints about the email that the executives quickly distanced themselves from it. WaMu's CEO was doing a company roadshow that week, and when asked about the email by an employee during Q & A, he said "I was out of town at the time" it went out. Needless to say, Suzanne never sent out another email like that again.

Before they officially hired anyone when I worked there in the 90s (back when Dorene the founder still ran things), they would make you pronounce it correctly as the last step before starting your paperwork.

MOD Pizza over Pagliacci?
May 15, 2012 Bill Nordwall commented on Mayor McGinn's New Broadband Strategy Isn't New.

As a Pioneer Square business owner with an office sitting directly above the city-owned fiber, I call bullshit on this plan.

Right after Comcast grabbed leased the conduit last year, they dropped by my office gave me an estimate of $1000/month for a 10mbps fiber synchronous line. A few blocks outside Pioneer Square, prices drop to around $100/month.

If the city is going to roll out this plan to other areas, they need to have pricing restrictions in place - otherwise, they are just further enabling these ISP monopolies.
Feb 28, 2012 Bill Nordwall commented on Spreading Santorum, #1 Result When You Google "Santorum," 2003-2012. is still in Google's index, but you've been bumped to page 2 for the term "santorum".

Also, Google has replaced with as the main search result page, which is the main content page for the site. Google may have determined that the main home page (the one with just the definition on it) didn't have enough content on it , and penalized it accordingly.

This also could have been caused by all of the recent news around the primaries, which tends to temporarily kick up a frothy mix of stories from high-quality news agencies that will stay on page 1 of Google until the news cycle passes.

Do one of the following:

- If you claim the domain using Google's Webmaster Central tool, it will likely tell you if you've been penalized.…

- Hit up @mattcutts on Twitter. He's the head of search quality at Google, and will often respond publicly to high profile search ranking issues like this one.

- Replace the splash page on with the main blog content, and start adding new content everyday.

- Wait it out.

Oct 13, 2011 Bill Nordwall commented on Arrested (App) Development.

A developer in Seattle just launched a similar service this week that scrapes arrest information from every county jail in the country. Once you connect the site to your Facebook account, it will alert if you any of your Facebook friends has been arrested.
