Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-01-21

  • I think it is amazing that I can watch live video coverage of the inauguration from CNN, AP, and others via uStream on my iPhone. Amazing. #
  • While I’m glad that tons of people are crowding around the TVs in JF1 to watch the inauguration, it’s very loud and disruptive to real work. #
  • @lunarobverse I haven’t tried the UStream iPhone app on EDGE yet. Actually, I haven’t tried it on 3G, either. I presume at least 3G works. in reply to lunarobverse #
  • @psteinb I have meetings during the festivities, so I get to be a curmudgeon. I know, trying to work at my desk = crazy. πŸ™‚ in reply to psteinb #
  • RT @samgrover: The Ustream app prompts that it needs WiFi if you start it with 3G. (Bummer – JB). #
  • Oh boy. Just learned there’s an internal grassroots laconi.ca instance. This should be… interesting. #
  • @buckmasterflash I just heard about it. Still trying to decide what I think about it, what its chances for long term viability are… πŸ™‚ in reply to buckmasterflash #
  • Oh, finally! FriendFeed adds a Twitter importer. Find and subscribe to your Twitter contacts on FF. Yay! πŸ™‚ http://tinyurl.com/6wmkpf #
  • FriendFeed just got about 50% more useful to me. I subscribed to about 100 new people I hadn’t know about, thanks to the Twitter importer. #
  • I didn’t subscribe to EVERYBODY the new FF Twitter importer found for me. But even after being selective, I added about 100 people. Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • And I took the time to put the new people I’m subscribed to into my “lists” – mostly around how I know them/what I know them for. #
  • @JoshProStar I used X1 desktop search/indexing WAY back when, before Google Desktop Search and Windows Desktop Search blew it away. πŸ™‚ in reply to JoshProStar #
  • Getting ready to watch the Obama biography on Frontline on PBS. I love that show. #
