  • @conroyl Windows apps in a birtual machine on a Mac work perfectly (except high end games). Much better than the old days. #
  • @dtwood I’ll definitely be sharing my presentation, once it’s refined a little more. #
  • What’s the situation on the ground at OSCON today? What are the “can’t miss” goings on? #
  • I’ll be in the “People for Geeks” session later. Sounds cool, plus @selenamarie is a rock star. :-) #
  • @funkatron um, wow. Sorry I missed that! :-) #
  • @jmoriarty arriving momentarily… #
  • At OSCON, grabbed early lunch and requisite Mt Dew, de-crapified my bag, and now I’m ready to roll! Er, sit. Or whatever it is we do here. #
  • @jmoriarty I avoided the lunch rush, grabbed a slice of pizza (I was starving). I’m loitering upstairs before the next session. #
  • Really happy about the fake red moleskine notebook from Google in the OSCON schwag bag. I love those things. I’ll take yours if not wanted. #
  • OSCON schwag bag highlights: http://twitpic.com/516d #
  • Apparently there are multiple collectable colors of the Google notebooks. Gotta catch em all! :-) #
  • Headed over early with @jmoriarty to @selenamarie’s session “People for Geeks”. #
  • @sourcecode Super Secret launch of the Google Notebook Dead Tree Edition at OSCON – in all the google colors! ๐Ÿ˜‰ http://tinyurl.com/5c5svp #
  • @rklau Amazon never said all books would be $9.99. They said bestsellers would be $9.99, and most would be $9.99, but lots are more $$. #
  • @rklau There have been a lot of Kindle books I’ve not purchased because they were more than $9.99. Seems to be a mental inflection point. #
  • Bunch of managers just “outed” themselves in the “People for Geeks” session (we’re talking about How to Speak Manager). :-) #
  • @schwern You did a great job. I shall do my best to apply it, and Not Be A Jackass. :-) #
  • OH: “If your boss is an idiot, and is still allowed to work for your company, then you need to find a job at a different company.” #
  • Good thing my boss (@billpearson) is VERY not an an idiot. I need to work harder at making him look good, though. #
  • OH: What ARE bosses for? Bosses clear away problems, and make it possible to do your job without interference, have what you need etc. Amen. #
  • Mike Arrington wants Intel to help him build his web tablet: http://tinyurl.com/5gycsc That’s what we do, Mike. How can we help you? #
  • @iSundevil @Britopian I’m not sucking up to @billpearson, just being honest. Unless it’s working, in which case, I’ll do it more. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • After a much needed mint brownie and Mt Dew break, we’re back. @jmoriarty is becoming my Soda Butler – he hooks me up! :-) #
  • @selenamarie just took the stage in OSCON People for Geeks. Her preso is “Leading Without Being In Charge”. She’s a user group expert. #
  • @selenamarie See? That pre-emptive “good job” I gave you was well deserved! And nice Legion of Tech plug in there. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • OSCON (Google guys): “Sometimes people in a company like to ‘play company’, setting up processes for no reason.” Sad AND true. #
  • @DivaDanese Which OH? Probably not. I’ve just been tweeting snippets from the People for Geeks tutorial. :-) #
  • @blogan OH = shorthand for “overheard”. I’ve been using it to indicate it’s something I heard, rather that something from my brain. #
  • OSCON Day 1 (for me) in the bag. Skipping evening festivities to head home and spend time with @rachelbancroft and the kids. #
