Opera CEO’s Million Download Swim

1 Comment

Million man march, million mom march…. and now million download swim. Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software, told employees that if the download numbers of the new Opera 8 Web browser reach 1 million within the first four days of the launch, he will swim from Norway to the USA with only one stop-over for a cup of hot chocolate at his mother’s house in his home country, Iceland. Now however good a swimmer he might be, he seems to be full of you know what. I think the Opera team has cooked up a PR stunt, which hopefully results in Tetzchner spending a lot of time in cold salty Atlantic waters. In first 2 days of the release, the downloads are at 600,000. Speedos, Shrinkage, Spoke-to-soon-icity
