Microposts from Twitter on 2008-04-02 – Josh Bancroft's TinyScreenfuls.com
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.
