Opera CEO’s Million Download Swim

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
