Microposts from Twitter on 2008-04-08

  • Up early to respond to comments/blog posts on the MID photos, then off to do a "blogging 101" training with a bunch of software engineers. #
  • @exprexxo Actually, not sleeping. Took a 1.5 hour taxi ride to the Intel Zizhu site to deliver some training. Back in my room now. πŸ™‚ #
  • I have a dilemma. My Lenovo MID demo video is 13+ minutes. Too long for YouTube. But Blip.tv is blocked. Can you wait 1.5d till I get home? #
  • Looks like the HP Mini ULCPC embargo has lifted. Kevin and James have some good video of that. Perhaps I’ll give my MID videos one more day. #
  • @shanselman There’s not really anything I want to cut out of the video. I want to show as much as possible to people. πŸ™‚ #
  • I’d rather put these videos up on blip anyway. Much higher quality than YouTube. #
  • How about a compromise? The Aigo demo video is just a shade over 10 minutes. YouTube should accept it. I’ll continue to tease w/the Lenovo! #
  • And I have a 2.5 minute "appetizer" video that shows the lab and the MIDs in quick overview. It’s encoding now, post it soon. #
  • But the real meat – 13 minutes of the Lenovo UI and apps, and 10 minutes of the Aigo, is still to come! πŸ™‚ #
  • I love my Aiptek Go-HD, but it has one big flaw: The mic is on the back of the LCD, so it’s almost always pointed AWAY from where you want. #
  • @chippy I’m posting an appetizer video to YouTube right now. Will post the meaty 10-13 minute UI videos to blip when I get home. #
  • @chippy Video will be here as soon as YouTube is done chewing on the transcode: http://tinyurl.com/6rx9e8 #
  • Just posted a 2.5 minute "appetizer" video of the two MIDs I got to play with yesterday: http://tinyurl.com/6zznvx In depth video to come! #
  • Aaaand just like that, YouTube goes down again. *sigh* Apologies if you’re trying to get to that video. #
  • Wow. Over 100 views on my MID appetizer video already. Not bad from between 4-6AM PST. πŸ™‚ #
  • @chippy I knew it! πŸ˜‰ #
  • @WarnerCrocker OK, cool. Glad those are all accounted for. Thanks, guys! πŸ™‚ #
  • To bed for the last time in Shanghai. My flight leaves in the AM. I’m all packed. Going to miss this huge, crazy city! πŸ™‚ #
  • Holy cow! What’s with the flood of Twitter followers in the last 8 hours? Hello, everyone! Feel free to @ me and introduce yourself. #
  • Headed to the airport in a few minutes. I arrive in SFO at 8AM Wednesday, will be incommunicado until then. See you on the other side! πŸ™‚ #
  • @soloride @current_com Nice to meet you – thanks for following! πŸ™‚ #
  • @NickStarr Only for a couple of hours, until my connection home to PDX. Will tweet when I get there, and have EDGE again. #
  • @davewiner I know! It was weird trying to put the flight on my calendar. It wouldn’t let me create something that ended BEFORE it started πŸ™‚ #
  • Wow, Twitter is busy right now! I have to run catch a taxi to the airport, so I can’t respond individually, but thanks all for the wishes! #
