Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-11-07

  • Behind the scenes: Barack Obama’s Flickr set from election night: http://tinyurl.com/6pzfw3 Watch in slideshow mode. Amazingly candid. #
  • At the Central library downtown, crouched next to a microfilm machine where I found some power. Rocking Pandora on my iPhone. #
  • I keep hoping for some cool easter egg in the Obama ’08 iPhone app now that he’s been elected. What’s it going to do? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @ravenme So, when are you going to release the “has easter eggs” version? πŸ˜‰ #
  • At the @legionoftech board meeting at Jive’s new offices downtown. Rainy. Crocs are slippery on Portland’s streets. I keep almost falling. #
  • Last Ignite planning meeting before the big day! πŸ™‚ #
  • @KarenPearson Oh, man. It sucks when kids are sick. Hope she feels better soon! πŸ™ #
  • Stressing out. Not just ignite, a ton of other stuff. If only I can make it through next week. Sugar and caffeine, don’t fail me now! πŸ™‚ #
  • Hey, does anyone know where I can find an OpenOffice presentation template that’s a simple black gradient bg, with white text? #
  • Free idea for Amazon: Now that Obama’s going to be president, give the Kindle editions of his books away for free. Won’t cost you anything. #
  • ZOMG the Ocarina app from Smule (the Sonic Lighter people) is AMAZING. Play the ocarina, and hear other people play on the globe. Un. Real. #
  • Ocarina even has a “Zelda” mode (I don’t know what that is yet :-). If you have an iPhone, GO GET IT. Best $0.99 you’ll spend today. πŸ™‚ #
  • I should be helping @rachelbancroft put the kids to bed but instead I’m playing Ocarina scores people have shared: http://tinyurl.com/6x5lq9 #
  • I’m going to get in trouble when @rachelbancroft reads that tweet about me messing around with Ocarina instead of helping her. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @chugg Go to ocarina.smule.com, and check out the scores/music people have posted there. I had a blast playing Concerning Hobbits, etc. #
  • And if you’re playing with Ocarina, be SURE you check out the globe mode, where you can hear other people play. And share your playing! #
  • Added Obama’s Pandora station to my QuickMix. He’s got quite a few excellent songs in there. πŸ™‚ #
  • I swear I had a link/screenshot of that fateful tweet in 2007 that got Ignite Portland started, but I cant find it anywhere. Anyone have it? #
  • @chugg Obama’s playlist on Pandora: http://tinyurl.com/68b7s7 #
  • You have got to be kidding me. “Istanbul” by They Might Be Giants just came up in Obama’s Pandora playlist. πŸ™‚ #
  • @lightingdiva I love TMBG, too. I’m laughing my butt off… πŸ™‚ #
  • @turoczy Hey! That’s NOBODY’S business but the Turks’. I’d stay out of it if I were you. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @SuperSpiker I haven’t tested Toodledo much yet, but I have a friend who swears by it. I still like RTM. I’d call it even. Try em both. #
  • Jolly Rancher’s wearing off, I’m going to bed. To recap the evening: the Ocarina iPhone app from Smule is AMAZING. And Obama’s on Pandora. #
