  • @chippy try QuickTime Pro for editing that MP4 file. Its simple, cheap ($30), and works WAY better than Windows Movie Maker. #
  • In a meeting where someone decided to cram 9 PowerPoint slides into one, in a grid. Why, oh why?! It’s almost impossible to make sense of… #
  • The free Creative Commons text editions of Cory Doctorow’s new book, Little Brother, are now available. Go get it! http://tinyurl.com/4xse5t #
  • Just grabbed the Mobipocket edition of Little Brother and put it on my Kindle. Need to finish the books I’m reading so I can start it! :-) #
  • Something I find far more entertaining/amusing than I should: watching marketing people scheme to exploit "social media". :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller I’m not TRYING to be negative, but the sheer amount of marketing buzzwords, and complete lack of talk of humans is dismaying. #
  • @kellyrfeller "There is NO demand for marketing messages." I’m not anti business or anti marketing. I’m pro Cluetrain. #
  • @kellyrfeller And yes, I DO remember the web before there were ANY corporate sites and ads. Do you? What was it like? Was it worth anything? #
  • @Britopian @kellyfeller I put my emphasis on CONNECTING with REAL HUMANS. That’s what I value. What do I do that you consider exploitation? #
  • I just said: I’m NOT anti-marketing. But there’s a right way and wrong way to do it. Right = respect and connect with humans. #
  • @kellyrfeller I’d love to debate you on this. :-) #
  • @Britopian But everything you write, on blog or Twitter, it seems, is all about marketing and "social media". What’s social about that? #
  • My problem with marketers abusing "social media" is that they treat it as "just another channel for messages". The miss the FUNDAMENTAL diff #
  • The Internet is the most powerful tool ever invented for AVOIDING marketing messages. Spam filters. Ad blockers. The web != captive audience #
  • The old marketing ways of hammering people on the head with messages doesn’t work on the web. You’ve got to find new ways. Give up control. #
  • @Britopian But do you realize that when all you blog about is that, you’re talking AT the conversation? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Britopian You use all the right buzzwords, but buzzwords set off people’s BS detectors. πŸ˜‰ #
  • If anyone is interested, compare and contrast what Intel is doing in "social media" with what Zappos.com is doing. Let me know what you find #
  • I’m not giving enough praise. There are lots of people in Intel marketing that DO get it. Coincidentally, they’re the ones on Twitter. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @kellyfeller Buzzwords make you sound not human. Real people don’t talk in buzzwords. You don’t talk in buzzwords all the time, do you? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @kellyfeller @britopian Honest question: Have you read The Cluetrain Manifesto? #
  • @kellyrfeller You can read Cluetrain, in its entirety, for free online at http://www.cluetrain.com. It really will be worth the effort. I promise. #
  • @kellyfeller re: buzzwords, go listen to this song and see if you can identify the buzzwords: http://tinyurl.com/pnpj8 Thank me later. :-) #
  • For the record, @jonathancoulton is my hero, and "Re:Your Brains" should be Intel’s theme song. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @britopian Are you asking if I’ve read Cluetrain? I make it a point to read it at least once a year. I buy copies to give away to people. :) #
  • I’m going to set up a podcast/audio debate between myself, @kellyfeller, @britopian, @annierodkins, and whoever else wants to join. Fun! :-) #
  • @Britopian LOL! I was asked to write that post, for the launch of the Mobility blog. On short notice. And they wanted to approve it. :-) #
  • @Britopian Some background on that post: http://tinyurl.com/4nslqa And the whole thing kind of fell apart. #
  • @Britopian re: "two comments waiting" – I responded to @thomashan via Twitter in minutes. And like I said, I stopped writing there. #
  • @Britopian Are you poring through everything I’ve ever written, to find examples to throw in my face? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Britopian Yes, he’s @skawtnyc on Twitter. #
  • Listening to the new free NIN album, "The Slip". Trent’s experiements in music distro have made me a fan. Good stuff. #
  • @Britopian re @skawtnyc’s comments, go re-read Cluetrain Theses 20 through 22: http://tinyurl.com/5gr79 #
  • @RichSPK Re: different artwork for each on from NIN – I noticed that – very nice touch. Wish more artists did it. #
  • @Britopian Do you hold comments for approval on your blog? if so, why? #
  • I have a tab in Firefox that I’m unable to close. Weird. #
  • @skyler Fix it, dude! I need it! :-) #
  • I had a hard day, emotionally. One of the downsides of "radical transparency" is having your feelings close to the surface, easily hurt. :-( #
  • @WarnerCrocker Thanks, man. I appreciate it. :-) #
  • Tonight, I indulged in self-prescribed blog therapy. Wanna join a group hug? http://tinyurl.com/4bq27u #
  • Now, self-medicating with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk. #
  • @charleneli Thanks, Charlene. I’ll be fine. Just need a good mope. And some ice cream. :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller Thanks, Kelly. That means a lot. :-) #
  • @Scobleizer Thanks, Robert. I figure if you can get through stuff like this, so can I. :-) #
  • @Skawtnyc I’d actually prefer Chubby Hubby, then Chunky Monkey, but NYSFC was what was in the freezer. :-) #
  • @skyler you always have such a way with words. I’m going to write a book of Skyler phrases someday. TLSN! YGTFUYLD! :-) #
  • @charleneli Thanks for the note. You’re absolutely right. I really appreciate the honest feedback, and I’ll do my best! :-) #
  • @turoczy LOL best answer yet. Thanks. :-) #
