Author comment

Per the challenge mentioned in this podcast's show notes: Waldo is in the main image at http://www.palantir.net/blog/users-versus-mobile-desktop-divide, near the bottom left.

Completely unrelated: In the podcast, reference was made to what sounded like lines from a movie ("Would you hire me? I'd hire me." etc.). What's that from? Perhaps explain in the next podcast, since I'm sure other listeners are wondering. Thanks!
