Help Rand Fishkin Join the MACerati
Ian Lurie Mar 7 2008
OK Rand, it’s time to join the Mac-erati.
Danny Sullivan bought a Mac.
Now it’s your turn. Here’s why:
- The Mac is stylish. It’ll go with your keen fashion sense.
- It’s a better computer (doh, I wasn’t going to say that).
- You’ll be able to drive Danny crazy by refusing to put stickers on your laptop.
To make things easier, we’re taking up a collection. If everyone in the search community donates $2 we can buy you a nice rig. Here’s what we’ll get you:
Note that we’re including Parallels, so that you can still get your Windows fix.
Everyone, donate today. It’s only $2. Think how fun it’ll be to see Rand try to figure out the Finder, and Spotlight!
If Rand refuses the Mac beauteousness, we’ll donate 100% of the proceeds to Habitat for Humanity. If we get more money than we need, we’ll donate what’s left.
