Up and at em. Just talked to Rachel on SkypeOut. Today’s kind of a catch up day – email, uploading video and photos, etc. Should be nice.
# Posted another video of IDF and Shanghai. Including what sites are blocked in China, and which aren’t.
http://tinyurl.com/26pwge # @scaleovenstove The Atom chip launched 2 days ago. Of course products using it aren’t on the market yet. They’ll ship in the next few months
# @scaleovenstove Are MIDs overhyped? I don’t think one can say that until they’ve used one (which I haven’t, much). I’m giving them a chance.
# @scaleovenstove My guess is, some MIDs are going to suck, and some are going to be awesome. Too early to know which is which yet. 🙂
# @scaleovenstove I’m uploading a video of my first ever MID hands on experience. It’s brief, but it gives a glimpse of what they’re like.
# Hmm. Apparently, icanhascheezburger.com and ihasahotdog.com are also blocked in China. I can not has LOLCats and LOLDogs! 🙁
# Interesting look at Intel from an entrepreneur who quit to pursue his own vision:
http://tinyurl.com/2oecbw # Another site that’s blocked in China: wordpress.com. I can’t get to @kenekaplan’s post about me to thank him for his kind words. 🙂
# And LiveJournal is blocked, which we knew. so I can’t get to @davest’s post on shopping in China, to comment.
http://tinyurl.com/2yjtsg # @kenekaplan since I can’t comment, thank you for your kind words in this post:
http://tinyurl.com/2eoxk3 Stuff like that keeps me going! 🙂 # @turoczy Yeah, it’s weird. I’m 9 hrs (or 15 ahead) of PDX. It’s 1:45 PM here. I’m about to go find some lunch. 🙂
# @Skawtnyc My VPN worked from the IDF venue, but not from my hotel room, so yeah, I’m kind of cut off. But oh well! Most of my stuff works.
# Just posted video of my very first hands on experience with one of the new MIDs (mobile internet devices):
http://tinyurl.com/yp8uvw # Surprised to see a show about Tibet on the National Geographic Channel in my room…
# @peat You’ll have lots of MID news once I get all the video I shot here at IDF digested and posted. They’re a few months out, but coming! 🙂
# Back in my room after several hours walking around Shanghai, taking photos. Then @kellyfeller and @mnmmom "Shanghai’ed" me, to a cool place.
# They took me to the restaurant at the top of the Hyatt hotel, supposedly the tallest in the world. The view was astounding! Photos soon. 🙂
# Thanks @kellyfeller, @mnmmom, and Jay, for a fun evening! We talked about Twitter, social media, cameras, and were entertained by a magician
# Now, I’ve got 350 photos from today to sort through. And @rachelbancroft will be awake soon, so I can call her.
# @harrisja It’s pretty typical for me, though. I shoot a ton, and throw most of them away. 🙂
# @KevinCTofel Thanks for the blog post re: my MID video. I’m hoping to get a lot more hands on time with them soon. Stay tuned! 🙂
# @KevinCTofel I’ve got a whole lot more to share once I get it processed. Hundreds of photos, and 12 HDV tapes full of video. 🙂
# @Jerry_Makare Sounds like growth to the ISN video site is snowballing. That’s awesome! 🙂
# @Jerry_Makare I’d love it if you can stay on. Because we all know I’m never going to get through editing the 12 hours of IDF video I shot 😉
# @Jerry_Makare Yeah, that would have been a good idea, huh? 😉 I’ve tried to do a good job getting the footage, but I’m sure we’ll learn. 🙂
# @MnMmom it totally sucks that your BlackBerry got ripped off on the subway. 🙁 But tonight on top of Shanghai was quite cool. Photo coming.
# Of all the photos I took today, I had to post this one right away. View from the 87th floor of the Hyatt. Amazing!
http://tinyurl.com/3k2hmw # That might be the most amazing (if not technically perfect – it was handheld, through glass) photo I’ve ever taken. I can’t stop looking!
# Grr. iPhoto didn’t save my edits (cleaned up some glass reflections on that pic) before it went to Flickr. Replaced it, so it’s better now.
# @NontrivialMatt Thanks. It pretty much took itself. The view from that place was incredible!
# @psteinb Heh. We should have our next team face to face here. At that bar. 🙂
