Microposts from Twitter on 2008-04-02

  • Up and at ’em for Day 1 of IDF. Camera gear is ready, and I should have wifi all day at the venue (which means I’ll be tweeting). Let’s go! #
  • BTW, I’ve been totally unable to get VPN to work, so no access to my Intel email. If you’re an Intel person, use my Gmail to reach me. #
  • In the IDF keynote, waiting for it to start. Requisite happy pop music playing. I may not get decent video – couldn’t get a good spot. :-( #
  • Some people came and set up a tall tripod RIGHT in front of me. Rude. :-( #
  • Managed to film all 3 (4?) keynotes. That was a marathon! In the "upload lounge" now, taking advantage of some bandwidth from @mnmmom. :-) #
  • @DivaDanese I don’t REALLY want my VPN to work. I get along just fine without it. :-) Yay for pushing so much of my life into the cloud! #
  • Is blip.tv blocked in China? I’m trying to upload a video, and it’s timing out. :-( #
  • @Matthewdaniels I’m in Shanghai for the Intel Developer Forum (IDF). I’m shooting video and covering it for Intel Software Network. #
  • @annierodkins Well, that’s dumb. Especially since YouTube is NOT blocked (uploading there for now, will do high qual to blip when I get home #
  • @purr No, Vimeo seems to work. And FTR, Veoh does appear to be blocked. At least, I can’t get there from here. #
  • Just did a blog post and put up the video of my little "Shanghai Walkabout" from yesterday. Enjoy! http://tinyurl.com/yto98o #
  • @mattg Yeah, it was fun. I held out the camera at arm’s length, and moved around. Hope no one gets motion sick! :-) #
  • Filling up HDV tapes left and right. Keynotes, demos (Nehalem, MashMaker, wireless USB, etc) and sessions. #
  • Tomorrow: Renee James’ keynote, Moblin, open source, and more demos. Whew! #
  • My Canon XH A1 camera just rocks. I’ve done 5+ hours of HD video, and the battery is still more than half full. I lub this camera. :-) #
  • The marketing folks are having a blogger party at some club tonight, but I think I’ll skip it. I’m SO tired. Maybe cause I woke up at 3 AM. #
  • Connectivity here has been really spotty. I’ve yet to attend an event/conference with really great connectivity. Big opportunity here. #
  • My Twitter friends sure are quiet. What, are you all asleep or something? 😉 #
  • I don’t know why YouTube isn’t showing a thumbnail for embedded versions of my video. I edited it and told it which one to use. *sigh* #
  • Flipping through TV channels in my room. For some reason, this song/commercial comes to mind: http://tinyurl.com/rea3x #
  • See this waterfront panorama? It’s right next to my hotel. I was there shooting video a couple hours ago. :-) http://tinyurl.com/ywxuwx #
  • My hotel is also across the street from the Oriental Pearl Tower, tallest in Asia, 3rd tallest in the world. http://tinyurl.com/29he5g #
  • @anjrued Know what’s really disconcerting? That tower is so tall, I don’t have a camera lens wide enough to even see it all at once. :-) #
  • @anjrued Seriously, I’ve tried from a couple blocks away, and it’s still too tall for my widest lens (which, admittedly, isn’t super wide). #
  • @anjrued Heh. Problem is, by the time I get far enough away to see the whole thing, I’m so far away it looks like a toothpick. :-) #
  • And now that all my Twitter friends are waking up, I’m going to bed. I’m beat! More IDF madness tomorrow. #
  • Good morning tweeple! Up and at em for IDF day two! Gonna fill me up some more tapes for me and @jerry_makare to work on when I get home. :) #
  • Breakfast = Pocky Almond Crush. :-) #
  • Catlogueing tapes from yesterday, getting some ready for today. #
