  • Mildly surprised that Twitter has stayed up today so far, with all the election chatter. More robust, or does Steve Jobs cause more tweets? #
  • @Goboz Yeah, you’re probably right. This is the calm before the storm. :-) #
  • @kenfisher @chugg Great, now I have to go get that song and listen to it all day. :-) #
  • What are some sites that really SHOULD have an RSS feed, but still don’t? I mean, this is 2008. My vote goes to http://wreckedexotics.com #
  • @Jerry_Makare HAY, I HEAR THERE’S CAKE IN THE BREAK ROOM. BETTER SAVE ME SOME!!1! :-) #
  • A post where I share the sites/tools I’m using to track election results today: http://tinyurl.com/56jja8 #
  • @sumwan Funny you should ask – I just blogged the sites/tools that I’m going to use: http://tinyurl.com/56jja8 #
  • In other news, the Chronicles of Narnia are FINALLY available on the Kindle: http://tinyurl.com/6f2me8 Been wanting to read these to Emma. #
  • @mellowynk I prefer the published order, too. I love reading to her on my Kindle. We’ve been through several Ramona books, etc. It’s great. #
  • @mellowynk Cool – thanks for the recommendations! :-) #
  • @Jerry_Makare If me reading to my kids on my Kindle strikes you as funny, you don’t know me very well. 😉 We do lots of dead tree books too #
  • Wow. Now that I’ve posted about tools to watch election results, I’m already getting Google ads about Oregon ballot measures. They’re fast! #
  • Now that Remember The Milk has a Gmail gadget, I can uninstall the RTM-in-Gmail Firefox Extension. Yay! :-) http://tinyurl.com/5dve7n #
  • Now, if only there were a way to rearrange the Gadgets I have in my Gmail sidebar now (Calendar, RTM, Docs, etc.). *sigh* #
  • Oh, wait. There is! It’s a Labs feature – “Navbar Drag and Drop” – http://tinyurl.com/6oy6dh Awesome! :-) #
  • Looks like PBS’s NewsHour site has an iPhone friendly live election results page: http://tinyurl.com/5ef6gb (via @LeStew) #
  • @LeStew Yes, I discovered and followed @newshour, too. Great use of Twitter. Those PBS people are pretty smart. :-) #
  • Aaaand the Google Election Map goes live: http://tinyurl.com/564d4c #
  • @treowth Hmm. Try Google’s front page for all election coverage: http://www.google.com/2008election #
  • Hey, look! Twitter’s not dead yet! :-) #
  • @sumwan It’s not dead yet! All those disabled features? Merely a flesh wound! 😉 #
  • Hearing a ton of driveby political commentary as people walk by the TV tuned to CNN in the kitchen area by my cube. Where are my headphones? #
  • @KarenPearson Yay! Enjoy it, and let us know what you like/don’t like about it! Check out feedbooks.com for tons of free books. #
  • @KarenPearson Here’s a post by Merlin Mann on other sources of free ebooks for the Kindle. Mine is chock full! http://tinyurl.com/59xpq3 :-) #
  • Wow. McCain’s concession speech was powerful. Sincere. Made you want to love him, and appreciate what he’s done, and how gracious he’s being #
  • I’m a bit overwhelmed. Such hyperbole and history. Excitement and fear and – dare I say it – hope. My country is great again. #
  • THAT is what patriotism is. Inspire us to sacrifice, to work, to do what is right. That is freedom and democracy to be. #
  • I feel like there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. All the weight and malaise has lifted, and I want to go out and make good things happen. #
  • Tom Brokaw: “This is what the country has needed – a reenlistment of citizenship.” #
  • Going to bed on a hope high. Now, let’s get to work. #
