  • If Firefox 3 out for download yet? I want to fulfill my pledge, but I’m not seeing any download links on spreadfirefox.com yet. #
  • The AP has gone absolutely insane. They’re committing suicide before our very eyes (charging for 5 word quotes): http://tinyurl.com/4dw54z #
  • @metafluence Some extensions might not be updated to work with FF3, so be aware of that. Other than that, it’s great. I’ve used it 4 months. #
  • @mattg You could try getting it via one of the FTP mirrors. http://ftp.osuosl.org maybe? #
  • I wonder what kind of web infrastructure it really would take to handle the load that Mozilla/Firefox are seeing right now. Even possible? #
  • Just got a talent scout/recruiting email from someone at Yahoo. Feels weird, on so many levels. :-) #
  • @segphault What’s the scene at Mozilla Headquarters in MV? How are they reacting to the FF3 download, um, issues? Be our man on the street! #
  • Giving up on getfirefox.com, and using ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.0/ instead. My download won’t count, though. #
  • Since all you cool kids seem to like the FriendFeed, I created a “room” for Ignite Portland. Come join us! :-) http://tinyurl.com/6fytur #
  • @corvida You actually flew to Portland for Ignite!? Wow. We’re honored. :-) #
  • I figure the FriendFeed room might be a good central place to keep up with Ignite Portland backchannel stuff. Lemme know how to make it rock #
  • @ravenzachary I prefer to call my Kindle my “magic book”. It was the only way I could explain it to my 5yo daughter that made sense. :-) #
  • @ahockley Not that I know of (mobile version of FriendFeed pages). I wish, though. They work OK on the iPhone, but not optimal. #
  • Hey, I finally got my Firefox 3 download to work from the official Mozilla site! Fast, too, once it started. Now I can rest, knowing I count #
  • Amid all the Firefox hype, today would be a good time to meet Foxkeh, the super cute Mozilla mascot from Japan: http://www.foxkeh.com/ #
  • I’ve been using Foxkeh’s monthly wallpapers for a while now. Just the right mix of cute and geeky: http://tinyurl.com/22oxgv #
  • @bethgo Yes, del.icio.us recently updated to work with FF3: http://tinyurl.com/6n3k4o #
  • @Jerry_Makare You’re not 100% caught up capturing. I have a tape full of stuff from Research@Intel Day for you… *evil laugh* ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @chrisheuer Why, Intel, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I maintain that assertion until I’m proven otherwise. #
  • @lyzadanger Pro tip: Move the 2 lines of javascript that instantiate the Twitter badge to the very bottom of the page above </body> #
  • @lyzadanger Pro tip: Move the 2 lines of javascript that instantiate the Twitter badge to the very bottom of the page above </body> #
  • @lyzadanger That way, the badge is the very last thing to try to load, and even if it fails, the rest of the page is already loaded. #
  • @lyzadanger They actually mention that in the instructions for the Twitter badge, so I can’t claim to have come up with the idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @kellyrfeller Personal manifesto? It’s in those long blog essays I’ve been writing. Including one I’m working on right now. :-) #
  • @jmoriarty Since you’re in charge of Yahoo now, can I have del.icio.us, Pipes, YUI, and Fire Eagle? #
  • @jmoriarty No problem (re: no budget for my Yahoo properties). I’m going to take them all open source. Everyone knows FOSS is better. :-) #
  • Attending a guest lecture set up by the marketing group, MIT’s Glen L. Urban on “Online Consumer Power”. Wiki bio: http://tinyurl.com/3efm2k #
  • This could be really rool, or kinda lame. As usual, I’ll keep my sarcastic commentary confined to Twitter, since they’re recording the room. #
  • Urban’s book, “Don’t Just Relate, Advocate!” is available in Kindle format. If he’s good in person, I’ll read it http://tinyurl.com/5nr6fw #
  • @sumwan He’s all about “engaging the online consumer”, so if I snicker, I’ll just tell him I’m engaging people online. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • So far, so good. He’s talking about how the web shifts power back to the consumer. Nothing groudbreaking yet, though. #
  • Urban is sharing good stuff, but to be honest, it’s stuff that’s pretty intuitive. Don’t lie to customers. Try to make them smarter. #
  • You could get this all from reading Cluetrain. But he’s got slides, and some people only understand slides, so, yay, I guess. :-) #
  • @debbieweil re: how to get a book into Kindle format, here’s Amazon’s FAQ page on just that topic: http://tinyurl.com/5q9x6u Hope it helps! #
  • Just posted “Teach Skills and Tools, not Programs and Rules”. Would love your thoughts. Come tell me I’m nuts: http://tinyurl.com/3etx4q :-) #
