Dave Winer: “Jake is a smart dude and tells a good story. In case you don’t know, he works at UserLand. And we’re proud of that fact.” Thanks Dave! Your kind words are much appreciated.

He looked at it and promised to get back to me soon. The next day I got a phone call from their “VP of Indexing” (how many people in the world have that title?). We walked through my log file and he was pretty amazed by what I had found. It seems that some kind of DNS issue on their side caused them to use my domain (vertexdev.com) as some kind of default. I’m honored, of course. I asked him if this merited a T-Shirt and he thought it did, so I emailed my address to him.
As of this writing, they are still trying to figure out what is going on, and I am still getting the hits.
