I’ll start right off the bat by thanking Ethernet inventor Bob Metcalfe for the inspiration for this song, and my nephew Mike Krupp, Jr. for the awesome hat artwork.
Why should we stop saying “Hello” and start saying “Ahoy?” Mostly because I think “Ahoy!” just sound a hell of a lot more fun.
While listening to Tim Ferriss chat with Bob Metcalfe on Tim’s podcast, Bob mentioned his salutation of choice was “Ahoy!” I found this awesome, but other than for this song, I haven’t had the self-confidence to break with the “Hello” norm.
I promise I’ll give “Ahoy!” a try if you will! Let me know how it goes!
