  • Another exciting day of live @isntv broadcasts. What snafus and hijinks are in store for Josh today? Stay tuned to find out! πŸ™‚ #
  • OH: “Don’t Bancroft those cables!” πŸ™‚ #
  • @galvmo To Bancroft: v. to trip over a cable, often when it is attached to expensive cameras and other equipment. in reply to galvmo #
  • After the rush of doing three live shows this morning, do I dare dive in to my email backlog from a four day weekend? Signs point to “no”… #
  • So Barnes & Noble launched an eReader iPhone app. It’s apparently just a branded version of the existing free eReader app, which is great. #
  • Surprisingly, MasterCard’s “Priceless Picks” free iPhone app is pretty awesome – shows nearby deals and user reviews on a REALLY slick map. #
  • One of the benefits using eReader’s iPhone app is access to their substantial ebook library. I’ve bought and read dozens of books from them. #
  • I’ve been awake since 2:30AM, at work since 6:00AM. You’d think I’d be close to getting ready to go home by now. You’d be wrong. #
  • @ColleenMarie That’s the one benefit. Work’s air conditioned. Home isn’t (except for our bedroom upstairs). in reply to ColleenMarie #
  • @IgnitePortland Relive Ignite Portland 6 in video/photos, plus give us your feedback on how the event went: http://bit.ly/ip6memories #ip6 #

  • To do in the next 12 hours: finish chicken run, update @isntv lineup, pack for family reunion in Boise. Oh, and @IgnitePortland 6. Whew! πŸ™‚ #
  • Must. Eat. Birds. Seriously cute fun iPhone game. #
  • @StephStricklen The #ip6 speaker order is a secret. That, or I forgot to post it on the site. Your choice. πŸ™‚ in reply to StephStricklen #
  • OK, the heat got the best of us. We bailed on the chicken run, will get up and finish it at the crack of dawn. Now, get ready for #ip6! πŸ™‚ #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: For those worried abt getting into #ip6 w/GA, remember that we haven’t turned anyone away since #ip2 + we have overflow! #
  • Man, I think someone already Ignited Portland. It is *HOT* out there. #ip6 #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: The big line is done and the first wave is in theater. We have plenty of room. No waiting. #ip6 #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: Lots of room at Back Stage next door – screens and pool tables aplenty: http://twitpic.com/alfwi #ip6 #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: Show starts at 7, we have lots of room (and overflow next door at Back Stage). Come down, or watch the live stream. #ip6 #

  • Just checked out @tersteeg’s sweet new car – a Jetta TDI Sport Wagon. Bright red, ginormous sunroof. I’m officially jealous. πŸ™‚ #
  • @annierodkins I’m with you. I’ve considered unfollowing anyone who mentions “social media” more than once a day. πŸ™‚ in reply to annierodkins #
  • Been building a chicken run with @rachelbancroft. Turns out using a sawhorse is easier than just laying the boards out on the driveway. #
  • @IgnitePortland 6 is tomorrow! I can’t believe we’ve done six of these. Who knew it had legs like this? Grateful and humble to be a part. #

  • I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Live TV is going to be the death of me. But MAN is it a rush! πŸ™‚ #
  • Testing Photos on Posterous http://post.ly/1HdY #
  • Testing Photos on Posterous [pic] http://ff.im/5dDSE #
  • Gabe Holds a Chicken http://ff.im/5dG0M #
  • Whoa, that was cool, and unexpected. Posterous not only crossposted my video to YouTube, but to Flickr, too. I keep forgetting to do that. #
  • @maoguimaraes @bryanrhoads @britopian You’ve discovered my secret. I’m really a teenage Brazilian girl. Sou uma forΓ§a da natureza! πŸ™‚ #
  • What can I say. Brazil has spoken. They want me to come back. I will some day, for sure. I miss Curitiba! http://twitpic.com/adh83 #
  • @maoguimaraes I lived in Curitiba (and ParanaguΓ‘) for a couple of years about 10 years ago. I’ve been dying to go back and visit ever since. in reply to maoguimaraes #
  • @rachelbancroft just invented an awesome word. Overlaugh: when you laugh harder at something than is warranted, because laughing is funny. #
  • ZOMG Enviro-Bear 2010 is the funniest iPhone game I’ve ever seen. Absurdly bad, but hey – bears can’t drive! πŸ™‚ Check it out. #

  • Pro Tip: Gaffer’s tape is great for cleaning the scroll ball of an Apple Mighty Mouse, so you don’t have this problem: http://bit.ly/m0Xsd #
  • Amazing iPhone app: Tunewiki. Subtitled lyrics, map of other people listening to the song, and more. Wow. It’s free. http://bit.ly/CXJVY #
  • RT @isntv: New episodes of Parallel Programming Talk, Teach Parallel, Visualize This! LIVE starting at tmrw 8AM Pacific http://bit.ly/isntv #
  • @billpearson @sharong Comcast is now selling white label WiMAX (bundled with home internet and 3G). @unclenate has it, I saw his dongle. πŸ™‚ #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: Ignite Portland 6 is Thursday night! Here’s how to get the most of it (read if you’re attending!) http://bit.ly/enjoyIP6 #
  • Holy crap. Did you know that Tunewiki is a Shoutcast streaming radio client, too? With lyrics and all the fun stuff. Too much awesomeness. #

  • @mike_strock Tillamook’s a little over 1hr from Portland. TOTALLY worth it. Portland-Cannon Beach-Tillamook is GORGEOUS. Best. Drive. Ever. in reply to mike_strock #
  • @tersteeg @billpearson and I performing hard drive surgery on our MacBook Pros today. Computer guts! Aah! πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/9wdxu #
  • Elbow deep in the guts of my Mac: http://twitpic.com/9wlli #
  • MacBook Pro hard-drive-ectomy complete, now restoring from Time Machine. #
  • @lunarobverse It’s a Seagate 500GB 7200RPM, too. Looking forward to a speed bump and LOTS more storage. πŸ™‚ in reply to lunarobverse #
  • @lunarobverse My battery life is crap already, so I’m not too worried about the hit from 7200rpm. Bootup is noticeably faster! πŸ™‚ #
  • 1 hour 45 minutes after we took out the first screw, I’m back up and running with everything restored to my new 500GB drive. FW800 FTW! πŸ™‚ #
  • Just had some “Dirty Potato Chips”, Salt and Pepper flavor. Not bad. Saw them on Dirty Jobs, Mike Rowe compelled me to buy them. πŸ™‚ #
  • Almost 2 minutes of backyard chicken video action, fresh off my iPhone 3GS: http://bit.ly/SdQig
    You’re welcome! πŸ™‚ #
  • More of The Chicken Ladies, as I call them: http://twitpic.com/9yql4 (backyard Buff Orpington chicken action! πŸ™‚ #
  • @ejacqui Lawn mowing hacks, just for you: http://bit.ly/k3M1c πŸ˜‰ #
  • Aw, man. @gabebancroft won’t keep his shoes on, and now he has chicken poop all over his foot… ??????? #
  • @jezlyn The chickens are pets, and for eggs. @rachelbancroft has wanted some forever, and urban chickens are all the rage… πŸ™‚ in reply to jezlyn #

  • Breakfast of Champions: cold @Whiffies raspberry fried pie. Mmm mmm good! πŸ™‚ #
  • @feedia Did you really just post a tweet that points to a Facebook post that points to a blog post that summarizes your tweets for the day? in reply to feedia #
  • If you liked the Lyrical iPhone app, try Rhapsolyric (also free). It adds iPod controls and shows songs playing on local radio stations. #
  • RT @cramd: #strobist Very cool iphone remote trigger app for Canon DSLRs. http://bit.ly/lq2Bj #
  • After monitoring the tweetstream for a couple of days I conclude that 60% of iPhone app tweets are “What’s the best Twitter app?” #seriously #
