  • For my own info, as well as yours, my Mario Kart Wii friend code is 0302 0226 1424 #
  • Let me know if you add me as a friend on Mario Kart, so I can add you back. #
  • Joy! One of my Nice Safe Internet Man Crushes has joined Twitter: @mc_frontalot #
  • It feels like my blog has been more down than up lately. Yay. MediaTemple is fighting some multi-day outage or something. It sucks. #
  • Can’t wait to read Cory Doctorow’s new book, "LIttle Brother": http://tinyurl.com/5wcezv #
  • Man, no body around here has the Wii Wheel accessory in stock. Guy at Target just told me it doesn’t even exist separate from the game. ๐Ÿ˜› #
  • Called a few more places, out of stock. There’s a bunch of places at Tanasbourne that might have it. Lunch time scavenger hunt! :-) #
  • @sumwan EBX at Washington Square? Hmm. That’s a little far for a lunchtime run from Jones Farm. But it might be my only option… #
  • @sumwan I just called the Sunset Espanade store, and he said they ran out. Might have more this afternoon. :-( #
  • @mrkurt Nunchuk is too complicated for n00bies and my 4yo daughter (which is who I play with most of the time). I’m not a serious racer. :-) #
  • I love the Wii Wheel because it’s so intuitive – just like Wii Sports. You don’t have to explain much about how to use it. You just use it. #
  • Well, I’m off to hit a couple of local game stores, and grab some lunch. Wish me luck! :-) #
  • Struck out at Best Buy in Tanasbourne, but the GameStop next door got a bunch in this morning. Score! :-) #
  • @karitas yes, Mario Kart Wii came out on Sunday. :-) #
  • I love it when random intel people I don’t know walk by my cube, and I overhear them talking about Intelpedia. Warms my heart, it does! :-) #
  • @Britopian Yes, I am the creator of Intelpedia, and it holds a very special place in my heart. :-) #
  • @Britopian LOL no bowing necessary. You can just pay tribute by buying some something from my Amazon Wishlist (on my blog). ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • There’s actually going to be a big article on Intelpedia’s growth on Intel’s internal news site soon. Will be the third such article there. #
  • (The wishlist comment was a joke, BTW. Unless someone really wants to buy me something! ๐Ÿ˜‰ http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com/wishlist/) #
  • @mnmmom The game came with one wheel (which is a shell for the Wiimote). I need 3 more! Got one today, just ordered two more from Amazon. #
  • I only got one Wii Wheel at GameStop because they’re $15 there, and only $10 on Amazon. And I’m willing to wait for wheels #3 and #4. #
  • @sumwan I didn’t see a red and black GameStop branded wheel, but I’m all about first party accessories when it comes to Nintendo. :-) #
  • @rodfather That is an AWESOME idea (modding the Wii Wheel into a camera rig) :-) #
  • In the same Amazon order, I also bought a dead tree copy of Cory Doctorow’s "Little Brother", even though I’ll only ever read the ebook. #
  • Voting with my wallet to support Cory and Creative Commons. Plus, I’ll probably give the book to someone, and make a new fan. :-) #
  • @RevTim I hit best buy at lunch, and they were out. Plus, I hate Best Buy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @rgleeson You should use TwitterSnooze.com to "snooze" people from whom you temporarily don’t want to hear. #
  • @lmachen You should totally use Intelpedia for your internal wiki needs. I can help you with whatever questions you have. :-) #
  • @mnology I haven’t, but I would. :-) #
  • @skyler I’ll send you the book after I pass it around my teenaged/preteen nieces and nephews, and turn them into rebels. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @mnology My Mario Kart Wii code is 0302 0226 1424. I don’t know what my Wii’s console code is, because I always forget to look. :-) #
  • Oops. It appears that @brightkite’s Google Maps API key no longer works. Bye bye My Friends Map View! #
  • @memathews Thanks for that link to @trackthis – very cool. I’ll try to track the next Amazon package! :-) #
  • @brightkite I was on bkite.com, but I didn’t pay attention to the exact URL. Lemme double check. #
  • @brightkite On bkite.com, get this error: "The Google Maps API key used on this web site was registered for a different web site." #
  • @brightkite The map works when I use brightkite.com (instead of bkite.com). Thanks for clearing that up! Excellent Twitter customer support! #
  • mediatemple says that their long series of ongoing "microoutages", which have been a pain in my butt, are solved. http://tinyurl.com/4j3jdm #
  • Retweet from @ravenzachary and others: AT&T to subsidize the 3G iPhone, give $200 off for 2y contract re-up. http://tinyurl.com/5jhlpp #
  • Expected models are 8GB for $399, 16GB for $499. Which would be $199 and $299 with the AT&T subsidy. Not bad at all… #
  • @palmsolo I’ll probably camp out again, just because I’m that kind of guy, and it’s fun. :-) #
  • I know it’s so three weeks ago, but does anyone have a Fire Eagle invite to spare? jabancroft at gmail. Thanks! :-) #
  • @Britopian What’s the deal with that new site you launched? Is it an Intel effort? I see you and @kellyfeller there. What’s the goal? #
  • @Britopian BTW, your feed URLs/FeedBurner are all screwed up. You need to redirect everything to FeedBurner. Otherwise, there’s no point. #
  • @Britopian You have 5 distinct RSS feeds on conversationsmatter.org. Gotta fix that if people are going to take you seriously. #
  • @Britopian What’s the difference between this and your old blog? Are you not going to talk about social media marketing there anymore? #
  • @Britopian And do I not count at a "conversationalist"? ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @Britopian You have two "feed" links on the page itself, and three more link rel=alternate in the header, for a total of five. #
  • @Britopian This is the first I’ve heard of it, dude. When did you ask for feedback? #
  • @michaelsigler Well, I was having mediatemple outages as late as this morning. I’ll be keeping and eye on it, see how they do. #
  • @Britopian The biggest problem with the feeds is that since they’re not all going to feedburner, you have no real idea how many subscribers. #
  • @Britopian no, I don’t want to contribute, thanks. To be quite honest, I’m thoroughly sick of conversations only about "social media". #
  • @Britopian I just sent you a screenshot of the feed problem. Part of it can be fixed in the sidebar, the rest in header.php. #
  • @lmachen Yay! I’m really glad you had such a good Intelpedia experience. Thanks for contributing, and making it better! :-) #
  • @Britopian Nothing personal (I realize that last tweet sounded harsh). But marketers talking to marketers about marketing is just not for me #
  • I’m a storyteller. I love to discover cool new things, use them to make my life better, and teach people to do the same. #
  • Heh. I liked that last "storyteller" tweet so much that I made it the new description/tagline on my blog. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • And with that, I’m out of here. Meeting @rachelbancroft and the kids for dinner, after Emma’s swimming lessons. She’s now in Catfish 4! ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • Well crap. Juan Colorado’s in Hillsboro estรก cerrado. Have to go somewhere else. China Moon? Hmm… #
  • @billpearson tell China I say hi! :-) #
  • @jmartens Estรก cerrado, dude. Closed. There was some notice on the door that I didn’t read. But they have other Hillsburrito locations, ยฟno? #
  • @sumwan House of Lamthong is indeed yummy thai. But I had horrible service last time I went there. Waited almost an hour for my food. #
