Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-01-16

  • Running late. Had to scrape lots of ice, traffic is awful. And now, I’m stopped at train tracks. *sigh* #
  • @Jerry_Makare Ooh! Ooh! I want to see your new toys when you have a chance! 🙂 in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • I’ve been using my Kindle without charging it, to test how long the battery will really last. Day 4, the battery meter’s barely gone down. #
  • I’m not even turning the EVDO/Whispernet radio off to conserve battery. I read at least an hour or two per day. #
  • @msjennylin Yes, the Kindle screen is as awesome as you’ve heard. Super high contrast, sharp, easy on the eyes. Very nice. in reply to msjennylin #
  • @LEMills I’ve left the radio on, but I don’t have any daily automatic downloads, like newspapers, so I doubt it’s doing more than saying hi. in reply to LEMills #
  • @buckmasterflash I reboot my iPhone about once every 2 or 3 weeks, not because it needs it, but because I feel like it. 🙂 in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • The Drama Llama wakes up, lazily lifts its head, and sniffs the air… #
  • ISN team lunch at Burgerville. Welcome, Matt! 🙂 – Photo: http://bkite.com/03KCY (from Burgerville USA) #
  • Just walked back into Jones Farm after lunch, saw people huddled around the TVs in the lobby. That’s a sinking feeling… #
  • The people huddled around the TV were watching the news of the plane that crashed in the Hudson in New York. #
  • @Jerry_Makare Yeah, I realized that “sinking” was a poor choice of words after the fact. But I was thinking it was something much worse… in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • Twitpic appears to have been crushed by traffic to photos of the Hudson plane crash. #
  • I’m hearing on the TV that all 151 passengers survived, they’re being taken off the plane now. Also, @jkrums is a tweeting rescuer. Amazing. #
  • That amazing pic of the Hudson plane crash is starting to get mirrored, since Twitpic is down. Here’s one: http://tinyurl.com/9paur3 #
  • @joewevans I sit in Jones Farm 1, in the Workplace of the Future (a.k.a. Ikea Hillsboro). 🙂 in reply to joewevans #
  • @joewevans What a small world! Drop by some time. I sit over by the soda machines. 🙂 in reply to joewevans #
  • I keep trying to get to page 2 of @marshallk’s “Social Media Cheat Sheet” article on RWW, getting a 500 error. http://tinyurl.com/9yaurr #
  • @joewevans just stopped by – turns out he works maybe 50 feet from me. Nice to “meet” you, joe! 🙂 in reply to joewevans #
  • Malware author: “If you’re using IE, then either you don’t care or you don’t know about all the vulnerabilities that IE has.” #

  • @fredericl I heard. I got a cached version, so I’m good. Hope RWW gets better soon! in reply to fredericl #
  • About to watch company-wide webcast on earnings, outlook, etc. Not sure what to think… #
  • Nice! YouTube launching a TV-friendly version, youtube.com/tv, for watching on Wii and PS3 browsers. http://tinyurl.com/9bak8e #
