  • @rachelbancroft had an evil-but-hilarious idea: I should wear my “I’m Blogging This” shirt to jury orientation this morning. :-) #
  • Arrived early at the courthouse. At least there’s wifi (they were very coy as to whether it would or wouldn’t be available on their site). #
  • I take it back. There was wifi outside the courthouse, but none that my iPhone can seem to connect to in the jury room (Washington County). #
  • @spaz looks like the first Twitted client with bit.ly support. That was fast! :-) #
  • Awesome 80s video on why jury duty is so important. Now, waiting, waiting, waiting to see if I get picked for a trial. #
  • @marusin They seem to follow airport security rules here. Didn’t make me take off my shoes, but they did examine a lady’s water bottle. #
  • Wasn’t picked for the first case. As starry-eyed as it sounds, I hope I DO get picked. I believe in this process, and want to participate. #
  • OH in the jury room: “Facebook is a snobby version of MySpace.” (aside: wish I’d brought headphones to shut out unwanted conversations) #
  • Someone just taught “Facebook is snobby” girl how to use Google SMS. She’s ecstatic. You’d think she’d been taught dark magic. :-) #
  • I got picked! Lunch now at a little Thai place across the street, then, radio silence. #
  • Shutting down for the trial. See you on the other side! :-) #
  • Well, the trial got carried over until tormorrow, so the judge came down and dismissed us. Anti-climactic, but nice to get the day back. :-) #
  • @corvida No, that means I have fulfilled my jury duty obligation for at least 2 years. The lady’s doing a “stipulated facts” trial tmrw. #
  • @jmoriarty Yikes! 9 months would have been harsh. I could have been picked for a grand jury, if they needed one. That sits for 1 month. #
  • @verso Egad! I guess that’s one way to get excused from a jury. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @jmoriarty @britopian Something scary like murder would have been bad. The case I had was a homeless woman busted for riding MAX w/o fare. #
  • When the judge came down to dismiss us, she gave a very detailed explanation of the case (the woman had been off meds, lost it in court) :-O #
  • @scottjedwards The trial never happened, and I was excused. The judge didn’t tell us NOT to talk about the case, so I think I’m good. :-) #
  • @jmoriarty Very brave of you to speak out against Twitter censoring ?????. I agree that people will find ????? if they want to. Why censor? #
  • I came THIS close to getting picked for a trial about ????? this morning at jury duty, but they took one look at my tshirt and… #
  • @annierodkins I’m wearing a shirt that says “????? THE SYSTEM!!!” ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • Retweeting @mattking TriMet Tracker for iPhone has received a major update. PDX iPhoners check it out! http://tinyurl.com/6zcyys #
  • @kellyrfeller LOL! You must be on their whitelist, since your tweet didn’t get ????? censored. Nice! :-) #
  • Clear evidence of Twitter’s blatant censoring of ????? and ?????: http://tinyurl.com/6l447o #
  • @gialyons @kellyrfeller @jmoriarty Why not meet at the Legion of Talk event on the 21st? It’s at a bar! :-) http://tinyurl.com/66tf64 #
  • @verso I’ll play Guitar Wii-ro with you some time. All my Wii game friend codes are here: http://tinyurl.com/5jehrg #
  • A post I wrote in 2006, “Apple Mighty Mouse Won’t Scroll Down” STILL gets several real, valid comments per week: http://tinyurl.com/6zqymp #
  • @harrisja If you’re not going to iBendOver to AT&T, who are you iBendingOver for now? Cell carriers are all equally slimy. :-) #
  • @harrisja Sure you can go month to month with AT&T. You just don’t get the subsidy discount (though I know the joy of being out of contract) #
  • @harrisja And at least with ANYONE OTHER THAN T-Mobile, you could, you know, have a fast 3G data network. *zing!* ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • @harrisja It’s unclear whether the App Store will run on jailbroken/unlocked iPhones. Prolly not. I’m sure we’ll know on Friday! #
  • I wonder how much money I’ve saved Apple (in support time and replacement hw) with this post? http://tinyurl.com/2csv38 They owe me some $$! #
  • @samgrover I had heard that the Intel discount will work on the new iPhone plans (it didn’t on the old ones). I’m very happy for that. :-) #
  • Hmm. Will the iPhone 2.0 OS update and the App Store go live on Thursday, before 3G launch? TechCrunch sez so: http://tinyurl.com/594re7 #
  • Sorry, @chrisheuer, but I think Social Media Club has Nuked the Fridge: http://tinyurl.com/6godcr :-( #
  • @chrisheuer Whoa, I “choose to attack before I understand”? That’s kind of rude. I tried to understand what you’re doing. I don’t get it. #
  • @chrisheuer What format would you like to opinion/criticism to take, so that it’s more palatable to you? #
  • @chrisheuer WTF is with the passive agressive act, dude? Am I not allowed to express my opinion on my blog if it’s different that yours? #
  • Why some people choose to get defensive instead of accepting criticism is beyond me, but this it the world we live in. #
  • @chrisheuer You’re choosing to take SMC in a corporate direction. I get that. But it makes me sad. It’s opposite of what I thought SMC was. #
  • @kristiewells You say SMC isn’t corporate. I think the BoD news sounds like it could have come from any corporation. I guess we disagree. #
  • @clint Darmok and Jilad at Tanagra. #
  • @chrisheuer I do follow you on Twitter: http://tinyurl.com/5drhs8 #
  • I hereby give the entire internet permission to tell me when I say/do something stupid or wrong. But please don’t attack me personally. #
  • On a lighter note, this is very funny (worth a few minutes laughs): http://tinyurl.com/2hzwn #
