  • @kellyrfeller WTF is a “twebinar”? These buzzwords are getting out of control! :-) #
  • I got half way to work this morning before I realized I wasn’t wearing my glasses. Had to turn around and go back. One of those days… #
  • On a brighter note, today my oldest, Emma, turns 5! Happy Birthday chicken! I still owe you those birthday spankings! πŸ˜‰ #
  • In an Intel meeting with a bunch of “social media” people. My goal this week: keep my sarcastic comments to myself. Or confined to Twitter. #
  • Getting a download from someone who attended http://blogcouncil.org/ last week. Oy vey. That whole organization looks like a joke. #
  • How can I take http://blogcouncil.org/ seriously, when there’s no “blog”? All I see is a press release from 2007 on the front page. Wow. #
  • Looking over http://blogcouncil.org/, there’s no “there” there. I wonder how much $$ they milk companies like Intel to “sit on the council”? #
  • Maybe all the http://blogcouncil.org/ content is behind the “member login”. But how backwards is that? “You can only see if you pay!” :-( #
  • Q: “Why is blogs.intel.com so formal?” A: Because you terrify bloggers with threatening scary mandatory training and guidelines. #
  • @blath most of the people in this Intel meeting follow me on Twitter. They’ll see my comments. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @blogan That’s why I’m making comments here. They can choose to listen/pay attention to me or not. Ball’s in their court. #
  • I feel bad for the outside guy (you know him, but I won’t name him unless he does first) who’s trying to marketers all this stuff. :-( #
  • @cvelis no, I don’t advocate “no rules”. I advocate (and @IntelSoftware uses) a “don’t be stupid” policy. So does Microsoft. Works great. :) #
  • @ChrisLeckness It’s not too weird having work people follow me. They’re cool. They get it. They like it when I poke the beehive. :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller Sweet! You rule. I hope my daughter grows up to be a smart, independent geek girl. :-) #
  • @cvelis Yeah, but can you really think of something that should go into blog guidelines that “don’t be stupid” doesn’t cover? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @verso I haven’t ever heard of or seen that camera, but the specs look pretty good, and the price is nice. #
  • As a shareholder, I want to cry when I think of how much money Intel is throwing at consultants and “solutions” to figure this stuff out. :( #
  • @cvelis If you could oly see some of the required legal training for marketing bloggers, you’d see it’s a little scarier than that. :-) #
  • On a positive note, I LOVE how everyone in this meeting was exhorted to lead by example. You have to DO this stuff to get it. It’s easy. #
  • Can you think of ANY examples when a company was REALLY successful at something, because they hired a consultant rather than just doing it? #
  • @kellyrfeller Bingo. You can’t just tell people “OK, go out there and blog conversationally” when they’ve had no practice and they’re scared #
  • @bikehugger I’m not on any bandwagon but the “be smart and do cool stuff” bandwagon, man. πŸ˜‰ #
  • About to teach a coworker, @rgunjan, “Twitter 101”, and welcome her to the Twittersphere! #
  • Hey everyone – you’re going to pledge to download Firefox 3 when it releases tomorrow, to break the record, right? http://tinyurl.com/5vcx53 #
  • Hey geek parents? I want to get an especially geeky gift for Emma (my 5yo daughter). We’ve got the regular gifts covered. Ideas/suggestions? #
  • @mellowynk Tessellation coloring book? got a link? That sounds pretty geeky. Thanks! :-) #
  • @camikaos Great suggestion! I’ve been wanting her to have her own digicam for a while. I have a Nikon P&S I’m not using… Hmmm… :-) #
  • Thanks to all of you for the geeky gift ideas. I think I’m going with the camera. Now she needs a Flickr account! πŸ˜‰ #
  • @amstel Chumby would be awesome, but a) it’s spendy, and b) I’d play with it too much, and she’d get mad. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @mellowynk Exactly. This is an old 3MP camera, been in mothballs, don’t care if it breaks. #
  • @azareal She doesn’t have Webkinz, and I confess I don’t really get what they are. Care to enlighten me in 140 chars? :-) #
  • @ahockley Believe me, as soon as she’s old enough to type, she’ll have a plethora of phones to choose from. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @mellowynk @sumwan Hmm. She loves online stuff, like barbie.com. Are Webkinz OK for a 5yo? #
  • @sumwan @mellowynk Thanks for the info. I think I’m going to pass on Webkinz for now, but I want to get her into an online culture someday. #
  • @Jerry_Makare Just hop on the MAX from Hillsboro to PDX. Will take an hour or so, and cost you a couple bucks, but hey… :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare FairPlex is by the Hillsboro Airport. See if they have a shuttle, or it’s a short walk. #
  • TinyPodcast is reborn as Bit Stories! Just posted the first episode with me and Brian. Go have a listen! :-) http://tinyurl.com/5q7sfr #
  • @Jerry_Makare Don’t let that comment bother you. People would complain if I DIDN’T disclaim that I work at Intel, too. :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare I don’t know what Internet hools are, but I dislike them too. I think. Unless they’re awesome. #
  • @jerry_makare Ah. Hooliganism and asshattery I understand. :-) #
