  • Oops. Must’ve hit “off” instead of snooze on my alarm this morning. Guess who overslept and is now late for work? Me! #
  • @jmoriarty It’s even worse. Guess what Mr. Techno Gadget’s alarm actually is? His iPhone. πŸ˜‰ Tap button to snooze, swipe to turn off. Oops! #
  • @ahockley How did you know I want a Chumby? Are they sturdy enough I can throw it across the room to snooze the alarm? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ravenzachary @geekygirldawn or someone, can you post @linuxaid’s videos to the IP site? I underestimated how freakin’ busy my morning is… #
  • @linuxaid THANK YOU so much for getting the Ignite videos posted so fast! You rock uncontrollably! πŸ™‚ #
  • Working from home this morning. Tempted to have a pint of Ben and Jerry’s for breakfast? Why yes. Yes I am. #
  • Just trained another blogger for Intel Software Network. Apple developers will be interested in the stuff he’s going to write about. #
  • At eSan downtown for the Ignite debrief. Nothing went majorly wrong – yay! Time to start thinking about Ignite Portland 4! πŸ™‚ #
  • Waitress at eSan just showed us a printed Toonlet: “You Pulled Off Another Great Event”. #
  • She wouldn’t tell us who left it for us, but thank you, whoever you are! πŸ™‚ #
  • Universal Edit Button is an awesome idea. I’m installing the extension now, looking into enabling it on Intelpedia. #
  • @erick_alejandro Oops. Here’s the Universal Edit Button (UEB) link: http://tinyurl.com/3qd9oy #
  • Argh. Twitter mixup. UEB link was for everyone. Next tweet will be the answer to @erick_alejandro’s question… #
  • @erick_alejandro Which kind of laptop to get? Apple, of course. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @MarkDilley Sure. We’ve got to make sure that Intelpedia stays the new hotness, and doesn’t get old and busted. Or something. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @erick_alejandro Get a use Mac, or a MacBook. They start at $1099, for a very capable, well-equipped machine. Seriously. #
  • @skyler I’m feeling awesome. You? πŸ™‚ #
  • Great post from @turoczy on the new Universal Edit Button idea/implementation: http://tinyurl.com/6ms4tj #
  • There were at least three Amazon Kindles (that I saw) at Ignite Portland last night, including mine. Total I know of in PDX = 5 or 6. #
  • Looks like (some) O’Reilly books are FINALLY coming to the Kindle: http://tinyurl.com/672p8s Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • But O’Reilly appears to be charging the exact same price (maybe a little lower) for the ebook versions as the dead trees. That’s stupid. πŸ™ #
  • @rslux You know me, don’t you? I have a Kindle! But yeah, I guess that doesn’t count. Go see one in your city: http://tinyurl.com/6cmvpc #
  • @Jmartens I, too, would love to see ebook/dead tree bundles. As in, Amazon could offer Kindle versions of dead trees I’ve bought from them. #
  • @TiEsQue The world of ebook pricing, publishers, middlemen, royalties, and feelings of entitlement will always be impenetrable to me. πŸ™ #
