Seattle man loses web service after Comcast penalizes him for data use

Will Comcast cut off your Internet service if you use a ton of data, for whatever reason? Basically, yes, provided you go above their 250-gigabyte limit per month (and do so twice).

Here's a YouTube video posted by Seattle blogger-geek Chris Pirillo about the Comcast one-year-without-Web penalty imposed on another Seattle user, a guy named Andre Vrignaud.

Why should you care?  It can and does happen. And in some instances, as Vrignaud claims happened to him, the Comcast data-use monitor that should help one track data consumption can be disabled or fail to work.

We're unclear why that usage monitor disappeared, and we'll ask a few questions of our Comcast contacts on the west side.

Pirillo dislikes being described as a “social media guru”

We didn’t make up that description.

Tonight is when Seattle tech guy Chris Pirillo gets his chance to sound off on social media, at an event hosted by LaunchPad INW.

Pirillo got to town all right today. The picture here is the proof. He quickly posted a comment on his blog saying that may be stretching it a bit.

No. We don’t like the term “social media guru” either. My suggestion: media maestro.

Pirillo event moved to the Bing

One more adjustment in the Chris Pirillo visit to Spokane was announced this week by the event host, LaunchPad Inland Northwest.

Pirillo will be visiting town to talk about social media and marketing on June 29, next Tuesday.

But the venue has changed. It’s now scheduled at the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague, in downtown Spokane.

The time is still the same: 5:30 to 8 p.m. Pirillo has written “Poor Richard’s E-mail Publishing” and “Online! The Book,” along with several e-books. He lives in Seatte.

You should make reservations for the event to insure seating. Tickets are $15 in advance and $25 at the door. For information or to register to to www.launchpadinw.com.

Chris Pirillo LaunchPad event rescheduled

The original June 15 evening with Chris Pirillo, sponsored by LaunchPad Inland Northwest, has been rescheduled to June 29.  Pirillo, a Seattle area tech guy and blogger, had conflicts and had to reschedule, said LaunchPad director Bill Kalivas.

The location remains the same, the Red Lion Skyline Ballroom, 201 W. North River Drive, in downtown Spokane.  Hours are 5:30 to 8 p.m.  He’ll talk about social media and marketing.
