Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-10-06

  • Why is there a helicopter hovering around my neighborhood at 6 AM? #
  • @lestew seriously? I figured lifeflight or escaped criminal or something. #
  • @ahockley That’s probably it. I do live near TV Hwy. #
  • TV Hwy was still closed (WB) near 209th when I just came by. Police were there videotaping something from that earlier lifeflight accident. #
  • @LeStew Not sure. I didn’t drive by TV and Murray (I live off of 209th). #
  • Caught this in my search feeds, but I have NO idea what she’s saying: “Vaccine Against Bancroft-itis working…” http://tinyurl.com/44re8w #
  • @Jerry_Makare I’m scared to even think of what would happen to me if I received a vaccination against Bancroft-itis. Would I melt? Explode? #
  • @Jerry_Makare Bancroft-itis symptoms include weight gain, compulsive feed subscriptions, urge to wear black t-shirts, and overtweeting. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Jmartens I disagree. I see no “upgrades” in the rumored new Kindle. Only downgrades. No more SD slot. No more user replaceable battery. #
  • @Jmartens It’s bigger, but the screen is the same size. How is that better? Joystick and diff buttons = possibly better, possibly worse IMO. #
  • @donpdonp Ah, yes. By the time the orange Crocs symptom appears, Bancroft-itis is already in its terminal stage, and there’s no hope. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @Jmartens Boy Genius Report has pics of the new Kindle. Site’s down, but here’s the Google cache: http://tinyurl.com/4aobx8 Not sure I like. #
  • Gizmodo on “how to buy gadgets in China”, uses (with permission) several of my photos from the Shanghai PC Mall: http://tinyurl.com/3n5yts #
  • @Jerry_Makare What? You’ve got orange Crocs?! You’re right. You’re doomed. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Man, Gizmodo’s content gets scraped and reposted EVERYWHERE. I’m getting hits from all kinds of weird sites from my name in that Giz post. #
  • @mikearmstrong99 The “proxy blocking TinyURL” issue is apparently a mistaken configuration on part of the pool. Search Intelpedia for more. #
  • @aodan8 Happiest of happy birthdays to you! πŸ™‚ Oh, and go look in the microwave… #
  • Hey! A ten foot diameter asteroid is going to burn up in Earth’s atmosphere over Africa in about 4 hours. Cool! http://tinyurl.com/54h7rt πŸ™‚ #
  • @briancrouch Well, they say “between 3 and 15 feet”. But it’s the first time they’ve even been able to predict/observe something like this. #
  • Ignite Portland 4 submissions are looking amazing, but we still don’t have yours. You have one more week! Don’t forget! http://bit.ly/ip4sub #
  • And, the Ignite event concept has made it into Wikipedia! http://tinyurl.com/3lxmml Many thanks to @StevenWalling at @aboutus for writing it #
  • And speaking of wikis, RT @stevenwalling Wikis Usurp Corporate Intranets (PC World article): http://tinyurl.com/4e7pzl #
  • Since creating Intelpedia (Intel’s now-huge internal MediaWiki-based wiki), I’ve heard of and helped start tons of company wikis. It’s fun! #
  • @jltitus Pretty soon, they’ll be writing you and your company up in PC World, the WSJ, etc. πŸ™‚ #
