  • Giving a training on “Social Tools for Engineers” to my boss’s boss’s staff in about an hour. Nervous. #
  • This “Social Tools for Engineers” training will evolve and be given many more times, but this is the first. Hope I don’t suck! :-) #
  • @Alsymer Thanks. It’ll eventually be public (I’ll share the URL when it’s ready). Maybe it will be helpful! :-) #
  • Training in boss’s boss’s staff meeting over. Only got through 25% of my stuff. :-( Lots of discussion, though, which was good. Will go back #
  • Did you know that IE6 can’t view a Google Docs presentation? At all? And did you know that IE6 is the only browser Intel supports? :-( #
  • @billpearson @mediumtall Wow, sounds like ISF is a snoozer. #
  • @billpearson You going to see @charleneli later? Tell her I said “hi!” :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller @billpearson Go to http://hashtags.org/tag/isf/ to see the #isf hashtags. Or do a search.twitter.com (which works better, IMO) #
  • @amybarton Thank you. I didn’t even get to the good stuff! (Search feeds, Twitter, FriendFeed, etc.) #
  • @amybarton I’m sure you’ll get the “honor” of seeing the rest of it before SES. :-) #
  • @kellyrfeller They’re not “normal” in the sense that they’re not “mass market”. They’re otaku geeks out on the edge of the influence curve. #
  • @trhuseby Didn’t record this session, as it’s not baked yet. But I’ll make a recorded version available at some point. Thanks! :-) #
  • @bobduffy No way to create a group on Twitter without serious hacks. I used to use “with_friends” (as did tweetpeek.com). It got disabled. #
  • @bobduffy FriendFeed room + imaginary friends works for groups. So does search.twitter if you don’t have too many people. #
  • @billpearson I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m a rock star. Also, I Am Iron Man. :-) #
  • Picked up a Mighty Bright XtraFlex2 book light for my Kindle last night at Powells. Works great, but 3xAAA batteries = heavy. Good for bed. #
  • Great. Just when Twitter was running fast and smooth, they have to go rearrange all the furniture and screw things up again. :-( #
  • Whoa – Hector Ruiz stepped down as CEO of AMD: http://tinyurl.com/5jke4k #
  • And now Twitter is back to the old look. I don’t know what they’re playing at, but Twitterrific stopped working. Is the API down again? :-( #
  • Sometimes I wish I could live in @wilshipley’s world: http://tinyurl.com/6qstcd :-) #
  • Favorite quote this week: “Passion is a great way to lubricate the machine of serendipity.” (Jon Udell). Applies all over the place! :-) #
  • Oops. That should have been “Passion is a good way to lubricate the engine of serendipity.” Not machine. #
  • FriendFeed seems really quite lately. Is it because Twitter became usable again? #
  • @blogan What’s the state of K2’s compatibility with WP 2.6? Is it safe yet? #
  • Twinkle for the iPhone (Twitter geo client thingy) is out. Playing with it now. #
  • No option to turn the sounds off in Twinkle = lame, but the fact that it shows all updates near me is awesome. #
  • @ejacqui oh. Duh. I was stuck in the Identity subscreen, and didn’t see it. Luckily, Twinkle crashed, and I found it after. :-) #
  • Testing the photo button in Twinkle. Does this go to Twitpic? http://snipurl.com/30h89 #
  • Ooh, I like how Twinkle shows that picture (and this one) as an attachment, rather than just a twitpic URL. Nice. http://snipurl.com/30h9x #
  • (Checking from Twitterrific) ah, the pictures go to twinkle.tapulous.com, shortened as a snurl. #
  • @julieteaston yes, just touch the little switch. Don’t try to slide it. #
  • Wish I could tell Twinkle to use my Twitter avatar photo. I don’t have it on my iPhone, so I can’t add it in Twinkle. #
  • Sad: muxtape.com no longer works on the iPhone. Happy: apparently, there’s a native app coming. #
