My all-time Favorite AutoTempest Blog Post

… is not this. 😉 Actually it’s not even on this blog. It’s this one over at And not just because they call AutoTempest possibly the “best search engine ever for cars”… although that helps. It’s because of how they found the site.
The site is one I found quite by accident. I’m not in the market for a used car, I was actually looking for a quote from Bill Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and stumbled upon this gem. Ahh, I love the Internet.
How awesome is that? The best part is, Kevin Purdy at Lifehacker apparently read that post, so the next day, AutoTempest was on Lifehacker and got it’s most visits in a single day, by about 300%. Better to be lucky than good, huh? Although I guess ‘you’ve got to be good to be lucky’ might apply too. Let’s go with that one. PS: My second-favorite AutoTempest coverage is this interview with Keith Griffin of Mostly because, as an engineer turned web programmer, you don’t tend to do a lot of interviews. 🙂
