  • @Jmartens Where in Beaverton did Obama end up going? #
  • @jmoriarty @billpearson @ajaymm Come to the Twitter Boot Camp next week. We’ll get EVERYONE using Twitter. It’s going to rock! :-) #
  • @SharonG This particular Twitter Boot Camp is for a particular audience, but I’ll likely start doing open-invitation ones soon. Stay tuned! #
  • @geekygirldawn @selenamarie Yeah, GoDaddy can go DIAF right about now. Thanks, Selena, for straightening it out! You rock! :-) #
  • Quote of the day (from a discussion on how tired the term "social media" is): "It’s not social if someone owns it." #
  • I’d point you to a blog post I just wrote (with a funny video!) on how I’m starting to hate the term "social media", but mediatemple is down #
  • Mediatemple’s up for the moment, so here’s that post on "I’m starting to hate the term social media": http://tinyurl.com/5tvtgq #
  • @rodfather I’m relieved that you still follow me. Glad I changed my tagline to "storyteller" from "social media evangelist". :-) #
  • @rodfather LOL if I ever do, you have permission to shoot me and take all of my toys. :-) #
  • @bethlubov TweetScan is down? Bummer. Try using Summize.com instead. #
  • @skyler I scoff in the general direction of your despisal of my hatred of social media. 😛 #
  • @skyler I’m not on GoDaddy. 1and1 for names, mediatemple for hosting. Maybe shopping around if they don’t get their act together. #
  • Turns out the Beaverton software company where Obama made his surprise appearance was Vernier, not Inspiration. http://tinyurl.com/5m8nug #
  • @jmartens You totally called Vernier. Good guess! #
  • @timdorr Thanks. I checked out ASO before, when I was shopping for hosting. Can’t remember why I didn’t pick it. Will look into it! :-) #
  • Oh, fun. Nvidia’s CEO has been ranting about Intel to CNET again: http://tinyurl.com/6mrprt #
  • @sumwan Oh, I don’t. Sometimes I wish our CEO wasn’t so mild-mannered, though, so we could see some real sparks fly. 😉 #
  • @Jerry_Makare false advertising! I came over to Merlot to partake in the Nerf warfare, and you weren’t there! :-) #
  • ZOMG Vernier Software, where Obama was this morning, is literally about 2 blocks from where I used to live in Beaverton. Small world! :-) #
  • A dozen nice photos of Obama’s Beaverton visit from the Oregonian on Flickr: http://tinyurl.com/6ydbnz #
  • @timdorr Do shared hosting accts on A Small Orange have SSH/shell access? Can’t find it listed on the site. #
  • @timdorr How well does ASO handle WordPress? I run about a dozen WP sites, mostly low traffic, with one that gets about 5000 hits/day. #
  • @timdorr Thanks for your answers, BTW. It’s looking more and more likely that you’re getting a new customer. :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare My life would be incomplete if a Dance War between Intel’s and Nvidia’s CEOs happened, and I wasn’t there to shoot video. :-) #
  • @timdorr I definitely run caching. :-) #
  • @billpearson Would love to get a debrief of that wiki conversation. #
  • @kellyrfeller Not big brother. Mashups that enable stuff like this: http://pulseofpdx.com and this: http://pulseofintel.tweetpeek.com #
  • @kellyrfeller If you’d prefer to opt out of the @pulseofintel conversation stream, feel free to block it. You have control of your tweets. #
  • @kellyrfeller That’s a good point. Twitter is open by default – anyone can follow you. Do you vet each one of your followers? #
  • @kellyrfeller I just assume Twitter is a public broadcast medium, and don’t say anything I wouldn’t say to the whole world. #
  • @kellyrfeller Sun is great. It’s nice and cool, too. Thanks! Bummed I’m not going to see Iron Man, though. :-) #
  • Man, @steverubel really brings the flow. I’ve had a ton of new comments on my "i hate social media" post since he tweeted about it. :-) #
  • @memathews She knows how to block/protect. We were just discussing the creepy potential for HR Twitter stalking, etc. #
  • @memathews Busy tonight (no babysitting, either), and I want to see Iron Man first, but go forth and Tweetup for Speed Racer! Have fun! :-) #
  • Oh man. Emma barfed ALL OVER @rachelbancroft at Baja Fresh a while ago. It was epic. I felt so bad for both of them. Now, home and baths. #
  • @bethgo Wii friend codes are weird. You don’t see other people unless you both explicitly add each other’s friend code. #
  • Another awesome Mac app from Google – Vidnik. Record video from your Mac’s camera, and post straight to YouTube. http://tinyurl.com/4rloza #
