Tod Maffin Pushes The Button

Perhaps Tod is just enjoying a friendly game of hide & seek.

Stage One: The Hiding

On August 26, 2008, Tod declares a temporary blackout on

his blog

but weren't thousands of media-savvy people reading it?

his Flickr photostream

no pictures of pussycat

his Twittering

how did that chant go again?


now did he read the button before he pushed it?

surely the following post had nothing to do with it

Hot For Tod


*not by Karsh

These women can't be serious.
Tod Maffin gives them tingles?
And yet here they are stroking his ego exactly as Tod had intended.

No, Tod, that picture does not work.
First of all, you look horribly serious and dour and humourless.
And what are you trying to say here? You're the king of the podium? The prince of powerpoint? The master of painless diversion on the rubber chicken circuit?
Yes, of course you are.

But let's face it.
You stood on a chair to get up there.

A better seat with those jeans would have been a bale of hay.
Then the girls would really be tingling.

Let's Play "Who's The Idiot?", with Tod Maffin

After having a snit fit in the video below, Tod learns that there's nothing wrong with the iPhone.
So he blames the tech support guy at the other end for not having the correct information.

Too late, Tod.
The idiot you're talking to is yourself.

Tod Maffin's Tech Support: Unreliable

Tod Maffin couldn't be bothered to write out his little whiny complaint, even when he thinks he's discovered something all by himself.
Instead, he posts a video on YouTube to confirm that he can't always think straight.

Tod's comments here are wrong in so many ways.
Technically and thoughtfully, and he should shave before showing himself to the world.

The 3G network is available all the time, anywhere, just like cellphone service.
The Wi-Fi network is only available when you are near a non-password protected hotspot.
Voicemail works fine either way.

Make life easy for yourself, Tod, and stay home.

I posted and submitted it as a Video Response but, surprise, Tod wouldn't accept it.
So I played with the title until it became a "Related video"

Tod Maffin was paid $100 a day to run a multi-million dollar company

but the gravy train didn't last long

Tod's Rocket

the start of a company that never made any money - MindfulEye Inc.

What Happens In Cuba Stays In Cuba

I'm not sure what Tod Maffin did in Cuba.

On one part of the internet it says ...

Mr. Maffin travelled to Cuba in 1996 to install computers and fax modems in five major cities to serve local Anglican congregations

On another part of the internet it says ...

He was invited by the Government of Cuba to plan and install the country’s first citizen-based national electronic mail system - a task he accomplished single-handedly on the ground in nine days.

Somewhere, these two versions converge, I suppose, but it's not clear how.

I do know that this blog is being done single-handedly, on the ground, as well.


It's becoming a bit clearer ...

To install five computers with fax modems in the Church centres

Canon David Hamid and Tod Maffin of Vancouver provided the necessary training, requiring a week in the country.

Write 80 pages and you can be an "author" like Tod Maffin

Sure enough, Tod bills himself as an author.

Surely it's just a matter of time before he's "taught at Oxford".

Tod Maffin works for the CBC "almost as an act of charity"

"the vast majority of people who work at CBC do so almost as an act of charity."

Tod Maffin: The CBC's Computer Guru That Reports To No One

Tod claims that he is the CBC's computer guru, but he's not employed by the CBC to work with computers, and he has no role with the Corporation's I.T. Dept.

What qualifies Tod Maffin to be Tod Maffin?

His academic qualifications and "credentials" are missing from the internet.

Did Tod graduate from high school?
From University?

Didn't he claim that he dropped out of high school to go his own way?

All we can know for sure is that he's an M.B.A. *

Hey Tod Maffin, they're talking about you

Surely Tod Maffin is using his patented Lexant technology to pick up the instant someone whispers his name.
He's not God, so he can't be everywhere at once. He just rules the universe, always on the alert should there be another sudden meteoric rise in his popularity.
At the moment, it appears he's experiencing more of a slump despite Michelle Sullivan's Tod-is-our-lockout-saviour shit.

Tod reads everything about his brand, such as here, and can't always find the words to say anything. Usually he'll simply have the whole post erased.
Then again, the moderator works for CTV where they have their own technology wizards. Next to them, Tod looks like a clown.

The CBC Pays Tod Maffin To Attack Me

Once you land on Tod Maffin's "enemies list", you can expect that he will use his position at the national public broadcaster to get even with you.

Not long ago, two months in fact, Tod deemed that I should be called "an ass" in public. Specifically, in a public forum funded by the CBC.

This is consistent with Tod Maffin using the CBC to further a personal agenda.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
