So I said to him, "How dost thou get the buckles on thy shoes so shiny?"

Apparently Gawker was too ADD addled to catch the real oddity in today's Circuits section.

In an article on Overexposed Overheard in New York, Lisa Napoli writes that co-founder "Morgan Friedman's 'Aha!' moment came at a cafe in Williamsburg, Va., where he overheard a man talking on a cellphone with his girlfriend."

And so naturally he decided to start a Web site about overhearing conversations three states away. Just imagine how quickly the idea would have come to him if he'd been in a cafe in Williamsburg, you know, Brooklyn.
