  • Running late. @rachelbancroft is at Cub Scout camp all day, so it fell to me to get the kids to the sitter, which can’t happen til 8:30. #
  • Bummed that I’m going to miss the opening OSCON keynotes. :-( #
  • @billpearson didn’t know you were coming to OSCON. Sticking around for the whole time? I’m inbound on the train. #
  • @billpearson cool – I’m sure I’ll run into you sooner or later. #
  • @billpearson I’ll pay no more than $40. 😉 #
  • Whoa. Local news channel 8 KGW just called me. They’re doing a story on the “iPhone craze”, meeting me at OSCON right now to film. Crazy! #
  • Got a similar call yesterday from the Oregonian for an iPhone story that’s supposed to be in today’s paper. Yay for friends in local media! #
  • @turoczy I’m meeting them outside the main entrance. Not sure where we’ll go film. Come on over! :-) #
  • I told them to look for the guy in orange shoes. I’m pretty easy to spot. #
  • @turoczy pontificating about his old iPhone to KGW news (after I did the same): http://twitpic.com/54k2 #
  • Any OSCON women with an iPhone want to be on TV? Come to D131 RIGHT NOW! :-) #
  • @bikehugger I know! TV news guy wanted a woman to film. I know many that are here, but all were busy, I guess. :-) #
  • The iPhone piece KGW just filmed will be on tonight at 5 and 6:30pm. Channel 8 local, will be on kgw.com, too. Don’t miss me and @turoczy! #
  • In @markgross’s session on building a dev box for OSS development. Lots of arcane mail config voodoo – mutt, procmail, etc. #
  • Is it really THIS complicated to set up email? Do we still have to worry about a mail server rejecting our mail because headers are wrong? #
  • I haven’t seen anything described so far that GMail can’t do (sorting, etc.). In fact, he’s using Gmail via POP in his example. *boggle* #
  • Just ordered a dozen or so free books for my Kindle, thanks to Tor.com. They should arrive momentarily. http://tinyurl.com/5jy458 #
  • Next OSCON session: The Age of Literate Machines with Zak Greant. #
  • Now in @selenamarie’s OSCON session, Running a Successful User Group. #
  • Favor: can someone please record/capture the iPhone segment on the KGW news tonight at 5 and 6:30pm? I won’t be near a TV, want to blog it. #
  • In Dirk Hohndel’s OSCON session on Moblin.org, the community for Linux on MIDs, netbooks, and nettops. #
  • OSCON panel on failure, community anti-patterns. #
  • @sourcecode IRC is the granddaddy of today’s web communities. Old school. :-) #
  • Headed home after OSCON for the day. Downside to conferences in your town, you’re tempted to spend family time. #
  • @Yasumoto What I meant was, it’s easy for me to skip out on conference activities in favor of family time. :-) #
  • Did anyone manage to capture the KGW iPhone story in a sharable format? Preferably a file, rather than somewhere like YouTube. Thanks! :-) #
  • @annierodkins It’s some kind of booth stunt. People are walking around with numbered stickers on their person. I haven’t been by to see it. #
  • @conroyl Yay! You’re going to love your Mac. Now, get the book “Switching to Mac – The Missing Manual”. Get the one that covers Leopard. #
  • @conroyl And I will be happy to answer any and all Mac questions, share tips, etc, so ask away! :-) #
