The Giver Giveth (and Taketh Away)
Feb 10, 2008
Back in 2000, I thoroughly enjoyed my job writing for a dot-com. Most people recognized the name of the company at the time, primarily due to the brilliant ad campaign featuring a hapless and hysterical spokescharacter, “The Giver” (for which I unfortunately can claim no credit). I loved the people, the technology, the site, the office, the short commute, the start-up environment ... and the free gourmet goodies. When Send.com suddenly imploded in 2001, its assets were sold — including the domain name, of course. So please don’t think I wrote for the site that currently lives at www.send.com, which is absolutely nothing like where I worked before the dot-com crash. My conscience thanks you.
