Regular LongCountdown reader,Â Michael McKinlay, was interviewed by CTV (Canadian TV) recently. I asked him why he was on TV and this was his response:
CTV News called me because my name was listed on the University of Calgary’s Student Union Housing Registry. They asked if they could come over and interview myself as well as my roommate as they were doing a story on student housing in Calgary.
Mike also added:
I had also advertised on E-maple.net, which is a Japanese website. They have a roomshare section and its free to advertise there. I also like having Japanese roommates as they are easy to live with. I lived in Japan for about a year and a half.
Since Mike’sÂ my “Net Buddy 4 Life“, here’s the YouTube video of Mike on CTV News so you can watch it yourself.
Incidentally, his advertisement linked to this post on his blog which shows the rooms in his house. If you look carefully, you’ll see a big poster with my face on it on the wall of the basement! How’s that for a net buddy?! 🙂If you like, you can find me on Twitter at @nick_ramsay. I'd love to hear from you!
