Song for Ben and Mena

Shannon Campbell wrote a song called Your Own Dot Org for Ben and Mena Trott (the founders of Six Apart) at the behest of Joi Ito. You can download it from Shannon’s site, Pet Rock Star.
Here’s the chorus:

you’re unbelievably adorably cute
benevolent, witty, and brilliant to boot
you’re a stupid fool with your own dot org
you’re a day late and a dollar short

How’s that for inbred geekiness? Listening to it now, I realize that if people don’t know the self-deprecating names of Ben and Mena’s now somewhat neglected weblogs, then the chorus could sounds a tad harsh. Obviously, it’s all delivered with loving kindness.
