I use a program that logs all my AIM chats.. So, luckily, I have some conversations with Mike stored.. If others do this, it's a pretty cool way to reflect; noone ever tape records conversations with friends, but this is pretty close.. here are a few items from our IMs that I thought were fun and worth sharing (note: this is just from my laptop, I'll do the rest on my desktop when I get back to work)..
I also need to find my ones from when we hired Mike. I remember that GM just came up and they were going to need an on-site TAM, either Chi or Detroit. I started IMing with Mike and he was *this* close to taking a job in ad ops with weather.com, but we moved quick and got him to come work for us..
