Matt Cutts and Evan Fishkin Shaved My Head at PubCon


On a bet Matt Cutts told Evan Fishkin at the SEOMOZ party that he would shave his head if, during the site reviews, someone asked for their site to be reviewed and it ended up being a spam site. Well, it happened. After the session, a bunch of us were asking Matt questions and we eventually got forced into a room so that we would stop blocking traffic. Matt continued to answer the groups questions while we all watched him shave Evan’s head. After Evan was done, Matt jokingly said “Okay, who’s next?” I wanted to get my questions answered as well so I sat in Evan’s place and Matt proceeded to answer my questions while he and Evan shaved my head.

This first one is a preview of me 20 years down the road (hopefully at LEAST 20):

    Possibly the funnest and most informative experience I’ve had at PubCon ever. Glad to see your wife can appreciate the pain and suffering we’ve gone through to get the answers to our questions.

    It was a boat load of fun shaving your head and a pleasure to meet you. I hope to see you again next year, preferably with more hair :P.

    Have fun Nelson :)
