Fund-quiddick

First there was RaTHergate. Then there was the Eason Jordan Kerfuffle. Now, we have John Fund-quiddick.

My guess is that Fund made an honest mistake here, as there was a row of Internet-connected laptops available in the hallway outside the room that housed Bloggers Corner. Indeed, that’s Doverspa’s take on it. Still, I demand to see the tape.

Meanwhile, Robert Cox is setting up a John Fund Blackberry fund.

Update (2-20): It’s apparently a disease with Fund.

Update 2: Julian Sanchez offers another plausible explantion: Fund is just plain strange

  1. After reading what went down, I agree with the theory that Fund must have thought these were public access machines. No harm, no foul, as this just seems to be a simple human mistake.

    BTW, Doverspa handled it with class.

    If I’d been Adam I might’ve at least said something like, “Dude, you do know that’s my computer, right?” Gently, in a low voice.

    I don’t know enough about Fund to know how he would have reacted, but odds are it would have been fun to see.

    A. Leave my laptop unattended
    B. Leave my laptop unattended without a screen saver password/logon password
    C. Leave my laptop unattended

    I wouldn’t be worried about what I could learn about you if you borrowed my password, I would be worried babout what you might learn about me when I turn my back.

    Not that I don’t trust you, but I don’t.

    Yes, there is that. Excellent point.
