Mistaken Identity

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a "Technology Thought," but it's much too funny to not mention!

It seems that two guys named Guy got confused. Smile The real guy, Guy Kewney, is a white, bearded technology expert. But a second guy, Guy Goma, is a black taxi driver.

Guy Goma, the taxi driver, went to BBC studios to interview for a low-level IT job. While waiting for his job interview, a producer came to the lobby looking for Guy Kewney, the expert, who was supposed to be there for a TV interview.

Somehow the two got confused, and taxi-driver Guy went in thinking he was there to interview for a job, and the producer thinking he was there to interview on live TV! He walked in and was fitted with a microphone, the cameras started rolling, and it was only as he was introduced as a technology expert that he realized he was in the wrong place.

It is unclear why the technology expert Guy was not there, but he was at home watching the interview with "him" on British television, quite perplexed! Meantime, taxi-driver Guy (and IT job applicant) is attempting to answer questions fired at him about a recent lawsuit involving Apple computer.

BBC: Were you surprised by this verdict today?

Mr Goma: I am very surprised to see… this verdict to come on me because I was not expecting that. When I came they told me somehting else and I am coming. So a big surprise anyway.

BBC: A big surprise, yeah, yes.

Mr Goma: Exactly.

The inverview continues here. But, to fully appreciate it, you have to see taxi-driver Guy's face when he is introduced as the technology Guy! Watch the video.

Poor guy! Laughing
