A bird named Raven

There were a few ravens in the birdbath out front last week, and like the plugged-in, multimedia-savvy tech geeks we are, we pulled out our SLRs and smart phones and Flip cams and……. nope, we just watched. Nobody took a single photo. Who does that anymore?

Fortunately, when this beautiful guy landed on the ninth floor balcony of New Epic Media in West Palm Beach yesterday, somebody was Johnny-on-the-spot with a video camera. They’re working on a permanent home for him, but meanwhile, they have a new office pet.

But that’s not the best part. The best part is that the New Epic Media folks named the bird Raven, after yours truly.

“We thought since we love and use Raven all day that we should name him after our favorite SEO toolset, even though he is a parrot,” wrote Joshua Gill, director of organic search at New Epic Media. “Just thought we would remind you that all your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed, and were such big fans we are naming office pets after you guys. :-)”

Thank you!
