Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-05-07

  • At @pdxcommconf. Listening to Intel’s David Veneski talk about getting Deborah Conrad on Twitter. I didn’t know either of them used Twitter. #
  • Anyone know David Veneski or Deborah Conrad’s Twitter handle? I’d like to follow them. #pdxcc09 #
  • @keaakre Thanks Kari! (@dveneski and @deborahconrad) in reply to keaakre #
  • Oops. Meant @dveneski. Sorry I keep butchering your name, David! :-) #pdxcc09 #
  • @pdxcommconf Pro Tip: create a saved search for “pdxcommconf OR pdxcc09” in your client to follow the backchannel. #pdxcc09 #
  • Man, I live in a different world than @dveneski. Traditional media/marketing is so foreign to me. Wish I understood more of it. #pdxcc09 #
  • My @pdxcommconf session is at 9:15, on “Engaging Employees as Brand Champions”. I’ll make it interesting, I promise! :-) #pdxcc09 #
  • Sitting next to @djtv at @pdxcommconf who’s been seeing my tweets, and kindly leaned over and introduced herself. Nice to meet you Terressa! #
  • You can watch my @pdxcommconf presentation at 9:15 on Google Docs: http://bit.ly/amateurs I may not see you in the chat, though. #pdxcc09 #
  • As always, I’m the only one in this room wearing a t-shirt. This is as it should be. :-) #pdxcc09 #
  • In @jhardison’s @pdxcommconf session. Found out he used to work for the RIAA. But then he worked for Morpheus. So it balances out. 😉 #
  • @kylemaxwell Its a “Void a Warranty, Poke an Eye Out” shirt from @makezine. I think that’s geeky enough. :-) in reply to kylemaxwell #
  • HUGE thanks to everyone who came to my @pdxcommconf session. Especially @jschultz, @djtv, and @dveneski, who I picked on by name. #pdxcc09 #
  • @rohitbhargava Very nice to meet you in person! Thanks for coming to my session. Looking forward to your keynote at lunchtime! :-) #pdxcc09 in reply to rohitbhargava #
  • @jshardison is making WAY too much sense in his @pdxcommconf session on social media strategy. Pay attention to him, everyone. #pdxcc09 #
  • Oh, man, @Tweetie for Mac’s new saved searches in 1.1.1 are great. Love that they show the little blue dot when there are new matches. #
  • @jojohnson I’m speaking at a conference today, so I haven’t dug into the details of the Kindle DX yet. But I can’t wait to. Stay tuned. in reply to jojohnson #
  • @janetleejohnson Sorry my session was at the same time as yours! I would have loved to come. Hope to run into you today! :-) #pdxcc09 in reply to janetleejohnson #
  • Whoa. The Kindle DX sports a 1200×824 resolution on a 9.4″ screen? And native PDF support? That’s… tempting. But $489 is tough to swallow. #
  • If the Kindle DX can read PDFs natively, I hope that this functionality trickles down to previous gen Kindles via software update. #
  • @gregleff For me, it’s Kindle DX’s extra pixels and PDF support that appeal. I have lots of zines/graphic novels that wouldn’t convert well. in reply to gregleff #
  • @crunchysue A netbook could be a viable Kindle replacement, but I get WEEKS of battery life out of my Kindle, and it fits in my pocket. in reply to crunchysue #
  • @crunchysue The screen is the best part of a Kindle. AMAZING resolution. Only draws power when it changes. High contrast. Love it. in reply to crunchysue #
  • I wouldn’t buy any Kindle without a cover. The leather cover for the Kindle DX is $50, so the “real” price is more like $540. #
  • @Jerry_Makare Nice! I knew all that foam would come in handy! :-) in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • RT @rohitbhargava: If you are at #pdxcc09 and got a copy of PNI, see Pg. 67 for @jabancroft from Intel & Pg. 84 for Voodoo Doughnuts #
  • @blaircook Great #pdxcc09 session on some really cool visualization tools. If you like Wordle, check out Word Tree: http://bit.ly/mviyT in reply to blaircook #
  • In @rohitbarghava’s lunchtime @pdxcommconf keynote. “If you don’t like the presentation, at least you’re eating.” :-) #pdxcc09 #
  • @StephStricklen Totally agree. Reading on the Kindle is VERY easy on the eyes. High contrast, high res, high DPI. Love the screen. in reply to StephStricklen #
  • Oh, man. Today is not my day for spelling people’s names correctly. Sorry, @rohitbhargava! :-( #pdxcc09 #
  • Now in a panel moderated by my friend @pdxsf with @carribugbee et al. Go to see so many old friends here! :-) #pdxcc09 #
  • @jschultz Yeah, I figured you go to that one. 😉 I’ll tell Sandra you said Hi. #pdxcc09 in reply to jschultz #
  • Who knew April was National Grilled Cheese Month? I TOTALLY missed out. #pdxcc09 #
  • @smileysejalee What are you talking about? My tweets *ARE* my notes on the event. That’s how I roll. :-) #pdxcc09 in reply to smileysejalee #
  • @BrianEnigma I do have large pockets. That’s why I wear cargo pants. Regular pants don’t have big enough pockets for my gadget loadout. :-) in reply to BrianEnigma #
  • @kellyrfeller I heard that @rohitbhargava *NEEDS* to experience a late night Voodoo Doughnuts run while he’s here in PDX. Hook him up! :-) in reply to kellyrfeller #
  • @jaculynn I’d counter @carribugbee with “Don’t hire *anyone* to tweet for your brand. Find enthusiastic amateurs in your own org.” #pdxcc09 in reply to jaculynn #
  • @CarriBugbee is awesome. She’s watching Twitter during her panel, and just called me out to the room on what I said re: find an amateur. :-) #
  • @jaculynn @carribugbee Exactly. Find someone passionate and authoritative to be your “brand champion”. Intern or executive, doesn’t matter. in reply to jaculynn #
  • Thanks @pdxcommconf for inviting me. Had a great time. You can find my slides at http://bit.ly/amateurs :-) #
  • @shaktispace I bet you could find a LOT of people willing to critque/audit your blog at @beerandblog. Friday afternoons at @pdxgreendragon. in reply to shaktispace #
