Dan Woolley meet….Dan Woolley!

by Greg Robertson on October 12th, 2010

This Tweet by Dan caused a bit of confusion today.

Here’s the full story.

Earlier today Dan and I were in the world headquarter of W&R Studios working and Dan got a phone call from a number he didn’t recognize. He picked up the phone and said, “Hi this Dan.” the voice on the other end of the phone said, “Dan Woolley? HI it’s me, Dan Woolley”


What happened next is a pretty funny story. But, it may be a bit confusing.

Turns out the Dan Woolley on the phone you have already heard about. His story was widely circulated in the press. He is a film maker who was down in Haiti to shoot a film on poverty. While he was there the earthquake happen and his was buried alive in rumble for over 60 hours. He took refuge in an elevator shaft and used a “first aid” app on his iPhone to survive!

Anyway he has written a book about the experience called “Unshaken”. And his publishers asked him if he could secure a url with his name He went to buy the url but it was already taken and registered privately. He has tried to contact the owner but got no response.

So when doing a search on Google he found that the only other “Dan Woolley” of any prominence was the Dan Woolley we all know and love (the creator of Dwellicious and Cloud CMA).

Confused yet?

So he asked Dan if he owned the url. Turns out Dan did not. Which was a shame because I could imagine a deal where Dan sold him the url but in every TV interview he did to promote his book he would have to wear a Dwellicious T-Shirt!

Man I love me these interwebs!!

See below for a video on the “other” Dan Woolley book.
