Celebrity by association

So I have to admit I'm impressed - someone else I know has managed to cause quite a stir in the blogosphere. A fellow Gear Live editor of mine named Edwin has managed to get international celebrity by getting out of a bum traffic ticket in a creative and tech-centric way. He had the balls to whip out a laptop in court and prove a cop was a liar using google maps right in front of the judge. Since then his story has been posted on Digg, Boing Boing, and slashdot thus gaining him instant geek cred.

*sigh* I miss my 15 minutes of fame.
