An actual “trial balloon”

A company that was launched at the Demo conference (which i am going to this year) is deploying in North Dakota:

"A trial balloon will be launched in the next few weeks to test the idea, said Schafer, who left office in 2000 after eight years as governor." (from Associated Press)

It just struck me as funny. (People ask: how much time does it take you to do a post every day in your blog? This one took less than 100 seconds. Would have been less if not for this parenthesized meta-joke.) Technorati Tags: democonference
