So this guy from Web Award at Pubcon kept Bluetooth spamming everyone into oblivion. What is Bluetooth spam? Its when your phone buzzes and you look down at it and it looks like this

The funny thing was he was advertising for Ad:Tech. Here is the actual image he was sending to everyone.

I reported this to staffers who told me some people had as many as 5,000 spams from this guy on there phones =(.

I am sorry but I think there is just no excuse for this. I wonder how much this guy paid Brett Tabke for the ability to spam everyone within a Bluetooth radius every second.

I am also sure the BOTW.org guys were THRILLED to see him have a “Best Of The Web” in there slogan…. Needless to say this weasel was not at his booth at all the whole conference but left his computer to spam.

  1. Shoe, you should have pissed in his computer. That’s how we do it in Beantown baby.

  2. Try that at a tech Expo in AUS. Either you get your head kicked in or a serious fine. omg, my 1st comment. ;p

  3. So why didn’t someone “borrow” his computer from his booth – sometimes you have to take things into your own hands.

    Yea, wonder why the conference organizers allowed this – surely they heard about it …

  4. yes he was.. by several people except he thought it was his “right”. Even staffers just shrugged it off but at the same time shaking there head. It was weird.

  5. hah alek! BTW I just saw your site in a major print mag for one of the 10 most viral websites ever! Good Job man!

  6. Or at least knock down his booth. Not quite as funny as pissing on him, but still funny.

  7. Hey Shoemoney,

    Great to meet you at pubconf (thanks for the beer!). Glad you posted this, I had it in my notes to submit a couple of sites to these guys……but no more.

  8. […] People don’t take kindly to Bluetooth spam. […]

  9. You know I hope this won’t come across as too anal, becuase I have my own troubles with spelling and grammar and such, but I came upon your blog just acouple days ago and have learned a _bunch_ from nearly every post. Thanks for sharing so much.

    But could you just check one thing … please look closely at how you use ‘there’? In some paragraphs you use ‘there’ when you mean ‘there’ and ‘their’ and ‘they’re’, even all in the same post. It makes it very hard to follow your thoughts at times … and for anyone who isn’t a native English speaker it must be horrific.

    Best regards

  10. I think my lack of formal education shows really bad sometimes =(

    Please feel free to post corrections when you see them. I never get upset. Nobody ever learns anything from a compliment! (hey that might be a good title for a future blog post)

  11. It is a darn good blog post title … let’s see who uses it first. It’s both catchy and true.

    I didn’t mean to bring education into this .. few have less than I .. dropped out of High School , went to college but didn’t really come close to finishing, etc.

    But you’re aprogrammer as well as a man with proven skills in very tricky and arcane subjects. You didn’t learn most of what you know about making on line money from any formal eduation … essentially, there isn’t any. You learned the hard way just how much difference even one semicolon can make in a line of code, or one improper capitalization.

    It’s no big thing, really, there is a place, their shows possession and they’re (they are) refers to people. When I went _there_, to _their_ web site I found that _they’re_ a bunch of hosers.

    But hey, until I can make one tenth the money you’re making, maybe I should type it “there” all the time too 😉

    Best regards

  12. Well my wife has a MBA and a MD. My mom has a Masters in english and my mother in law has a BS in Journalism..

    Its not like I am not surrounded by educated people lol… I just always thought that I had evolved past grammar =)

  13. Ugh my English is really bad too and its worse when it shows on my live pages – I should have paid more attention at school 🙁

  14. I actually stopped at his booth to get an idea about what the Web Awards were all about. He claimed the awards weren’t about making money, and the people who do the reviews are volunteers. BUT he charged a fee, something like $295 and the submitter would be handed a review of their web site with usability charts etc. When I asked him if he was a not-for-profit after his claim of the organization being strictly volunteer driven, he said they weren’t “officially” a non-profit organization with the proper filings. Which led me to think, where exactly does that $295 go if the people producing the review weren’t being paid 🙂 I’ve got a pretty sensitive and reasonably accurate internal B.S. meter and he gave off a sizable signal.
