// Blue Hedgehog

March 22nd, 2011

My BLuehedgehOG hasn’t been updated for a while, so I thought this would be a great ice-melter.

What’s with the blue hedgehog?

Well… just discovered a website (quora).
In short, it’s a website in which questions are asked and answered by the people who are really in the know.
Most of the things that are talked about revolve around decisions made in technology.

So… What’s with the blue hedgehog?

Well apparently, Ezra Callahan who worked for Facebook between 2004 and 2010 reckoned that Sean Parker (one of the big men behind the social networking site), wanted to use a blue hedgehog as a mascot for the site, much like Twitter’s bird and Android’s robot.

Thank god the poor guy wasn’t adopted, as there are probably enough pr!cks to watch out for on Facebook already (and blue ones in particular).
