Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-10-08

  • Here I am: http://tinyurl.com/3s8aqq Not really. My iPhone thinks I’m in Akron, Ohio. Huh? #
  • Were digital cameras banned at the debate? Cause everyone in the audience is taking pics with janky plastic disposable film cameras. #
  • THIS is why the internet is different from TV. A few hundred friends and I just watched something, and TALKED TO EACH OTHER THE WHOLE TIME. #
  • @betsywhim yes, if you don’t mind. Can I d you my address, and have you drop it in the mail? I’ll make it worth it. πŸ™‚ #
  • Watching the debate rerun on OPB – we missed most of it, putting kids to bed. Will be interesting having seen the Twitter reactions already. #
  • @RevTim you can turn off autocorrect in the next version of the iPhone OS (along with Google Street View). In beta now. #
  • I once knew a guy that called me “my friend” ALL the time. Like multiple times in a conversation. It was really creepy and uncomfortable… #
  • @biglabs Hey, have the winners of the Gnomedex Bug Labs contest been chosen/announced? Did I miss that, or is it still to come? #
  • @pmsi But, there’s no such thing as an “Intel biz tweet”. There are only people, who happen to work for Intel, who talk about their lives. #
  • @pmsi Sure, some of us talk about the Intel part of our lives, but some of us don’t. The value of Twitter (to me) is the PEOPLE. #
  • Seeing really weird, tiny artifacts on my Dell 2407FPW LCD. Like someone sneezed all over it, but they won’t wipe off. Eww. #
  • @jenvteal My monitor has never been outside, but yeah, it kind of looks like sap. πŸ™‚ #
  • Hey, I completely forgot about Ubiquity, and that I can tweet from it. Thanks, @caseorganic, for reminding me! πŸ™‚ #
  • i don’t think the character remaining count in Ubiquity works quite right, though. That last tweet was too long, and went over. This one? #
  • Oh wait, nevermind. The tweet displays fine. It’s just the “Latest” view on twitter.com, under the tweet box, that’s cut off. Lame! #
  • Why on earth would twitter.com allocate only 97 characters to display your “latest” tweet? Why not the full 140? Seems like bad design… #
  • @Viper007Bond You’re right that you can click to expand that truncated “Latest” tweet, but why even truncate it at all? #
  • @pmsi Then you’ll soon notice that those Intel twitter accounts are just repeating stuff from the site’s RSS feeds. πŸ™‚ #
  • @pmsi Oh, and if you want to direct your replies to me, I’m @jabancroft, not @jbancroft or @joshbancroft (though my search catches all). πŸ˜‰ #
  • @pmsi Groups and organizations can’t tweet, because they’re not people. So you end up with rehashed feeds or a person masquerading as an org #
  • @funkatron Oh yeah? Well I think YOU’RE Crystal Pepsi. So there! πŸ˜› #
  • @funkatron Yeah, fitting space to char counts on the web sucks, but is there anywhere it would be EASIER than the 140 limit on Twitter? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @funkatron This is what I’m talking about (tweets getting truncated on Twitter.com, by design): http://tinyurl.com/3vawxp #
  • @Jmartens Did you walk through said door, or walk THROUGH it? Do you need medical attention? Will you sue? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @pmsi Just trying to help. Welcome to Twitter! πŸ™‚ #
  • @Jmartens Glad to hear you’re not injured. Plate glass can be dangerous! We’ve got your back, man. πŸ™‚ #
  • @donpdonp Yes! I found one article on it. Apparently, the meteor hit, but there are no photos or video yet πŸ™ http://tinyurl.com/466pq2 #
