  • Awesome Lego beach house I’ve been building with the kids: http://twitpic.com/8rstd #
  • Lego beach house even has a Lego BBQ with a Lego chicken leg and Lego patio furniture: http://twitpic.com/8rsyv #
  • Having another brief dalliance (don’t tell @Tweetie!) with a new iPhone Twitter app: Birdfeed. The cool kids say it’s keen. They’re right. #
  • @rael Scrolling in Birdfeed is smooth and fast on my 3GS. Will try on my wife’s 3G. (aside: ZOMG @rael talked to me! Squee! 😉 in reply to rael #
  • @mulderc Pleasing appearance is subjective. I prefer Birdfeed and Tweetie’s visuals to Tweetdeck. They’re just different kinds of good. in reply to mulderc #
  • OK, wow. I’m liking Birdfeed a lot more than I thought I would. It’s really fast, and brimming with nice design touches. Kudos to the devs! #
  • @jkwatson It’s worth $5 if you appreciate fine, well crafted software. If you don’t care, use Tweetdeck (which is good and free). in reply to jkwatson #
  • A well crafted piece of software is a joy to use. It goes beyond functional and useful. Design is not how it looks, but how it works. #
  • MG Siegler has a nice writeup about Birdfeed on TechCrunch that echoes my thoughts nicely: http://tcrn.ch/4sQ #
