When you work in the world of internet technology there are few greater sins than sending a broadcast email to a large group of people and failing to BCC (blind copy) them. I did that today. I committed the mortal sin of emailing. And when I called my pal Cindy for forgiveness she suggested I a) get therapy and b) get a cartoon illustrating what a dork I am to completely freak out over a seemingly silly mistake. I have yet to call a help line. But I did find some relief in her second suggestion and, thanks to our Creative Director, Rett Martin, I’ve got an illustrated depiction of my faux pas and my subsequent melt down.
I think the moral of this story is – don’t sweat the small stuff. Also – when you receive an email like this one – do not reply to all. That just won’t end well.
