Word on the street is that Wireless Ypsi has been nominated as Innovative Business of the Year in Michigan for 2009. The first question I was asked upon telling something this was, “Was this self-nominated?” The answer is no. Apparently this award is given by the Michigan Business Review.
As always, it’s an honor just to be nominated, and I put this up there with my 1993 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Blues Album. I still can’t believe that Dr. John won, but I’ve moved past that.
Whatever the case, this certainly is good news. I may be having a rough time with Ypsilanti’s young voters, but I control their internet.
That’s a joke. I’m kidding. The last thing I want to do is create any more division between my more youthful constituents even though I supported what they wanted. But that’s beside the point. The point is this pretty cool.
Editor’s Note: It was brought to my attention that I was not nominated for a Grammy in 1993. I must have been confusing myself with John Hammond. This probably won’t be the last time that happens.
