The Jeff Jarvis New Glasses Campaign
When we campaign we do it Napoleon stylee, with fun shaped hats, halberds and big epaulets.
With so many frivilous campaigns out there, it’s time we sought to galvanise the tech blogging community around a cause dear to their hearts.
We are of course talking about Googlephile Jeff Jarvis ‘Cocker’.
Jeff needs two things and we are confident you kindly nose pickers of pixels can help.
The first thing Jeff needs are some new glasses, he’s been muttering about these for sometime:

Once he has these he’ll be able to see that his Twitter profile picture is a low resolution screengrab of an appearance on a TV show.
We’re pretty sure using pictures from oldie worldy broadcasting is a crime in Jeff’s hood, but without the aid of new glasses, Jeff has not been able to realise this, or be held accountable for it. We’re not yet at a stage where we’re persecuting the blind, heaven forbid!
So we’re calling on everyone to use the #getjeffglasses to raise awareness of a beloved tech veteran’s optical plight.
Dig deep, dig hard, please christ, just dig!
