  • Trying not to be surly about the all day no laptop touchy feely paradigm shifting mandatory career development class I have to go to today. #
  • I think part of what bugs me about the “close your laptop” mentality is that it assumes I’m too dumb to pay attention to multiple inputs. #
  • Whew. Laptops are allowed for notetaking, there is connectivity. They just said “no email”. Didn’t say anything about Twitter. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @jackbaty If you (or anyone) wants more than 50% of my attention, then EARN it. Be interesting. You can’t tax my attention by decree. :-) #
  • @KarenPearson Oh, @billpearson has mad Twitter skills. He’s just modest about them. :-) #
  • I swear I just heard a computer in this class do the Twhirl chime. A) it wasn’t me, and B) there’s a Twitter user in here I don’t know! #
  • @jmoriarty My dominant orientations are Challenge and Freedom, my least preferred was Advancement. Balance and Security were in the middle. #
  • @jmoriarty I bet you’re right. I’m increasingly impressed with how well our team is put together, and how we use each other’s strengths. :-) #
  • I’m enjoying this career development class more than I thought I would. Buzzword factor isn’t too high, so far. #
  • I’ve been vocal about how much I love my job, and how it fits my strengths. Now people are asking if @billpearson is hiring. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @treowth Heh. Last batch of tweets was during a break. Now THIS tweet… This one qualifies me as a naughty sneaky tweeter. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @billpearson @jmoriarty Let me know how well Scott’s staff takes to Twitter, and their handles so I can follow. Wish I could be there! :-) #
  • I keep relating all of these career concepts/examples to characters from “The Office”. What are Dwight Schrute’s strengths/weaknesses? πŸ˜‰ #
  • Welcome two new Intel Software folks to Twitter: @RussBeutler and @marymac1. Be gentle, show them around, tell them where the pool is, etc. #
  • @ashokraj I know of a few IT people on Twitter, for what it’s worth. :-) #
  • Fun to be back in the old neighborhood (JF3) for this training. Makes me appreciate JF1. Much more colorful, at least. :-) #
  • I can’t figure out why on earth the JF3 cafeteria replaced the fountain Mountain Dew with Diet Mountain Dew. How cruel! :-O #
  • @Skawtnyc They are correct. But I still want my Mountain Dew. Have you TASTED that Diet stuff? πŸ˜› #
  • To be clear, there’s still regular Mt. Dew in JF1, where I sit, but the big cafeteria in JF3 replaced it with Diet. My boycott continues πŸ˜‰ #
  • More Intel Software people jumping on Twitter: @sapeland is my boss’s boss. Scary? Cool? I say cool. Welcome, Scott! :-) #
  • Just as a reminder, you can check who @intelsoftware is following to find people in our group. Same for @pulseofintel for Intel folks. #
  • @jmoriarty For sharing slides, I recommend publishing them in Google Docs or SlideShare.net, then linking to them from a blog post, etc. #
  • @jmoriarty Both GDocs and SlideShare have widgets for embedding slides in posts. Posting there enchances discoverability beyond your post. #
  • Uh oh. Midafternoon sleepy time. At least we’re already past the touchy feely role playing/1 on 1 coaching part of the career class. :-) #
  • This class was actually really good. I was skeptical going in. Not too many buzzwords. I was ready to argue over “novation” used as a noun. #
  • Whoa. Sergey Brin started a blog: http://too.blogspot.com. Any other executive, and I’d be making fun for using Blogger/Blogspot. πŸ˜‰ #
  • I like the new Twitter.com redesign. Quite nice. Though I wish they’d make my name a clickable link to my profile, instead of just my pic. #
  • @blogan my name is not a link to my profile on http://twitter.com/home. Is yours? #
