Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-08-19

  • My orange Croc made a poopie (so said @Jerry_Makare): http://twitpic.com/ed4m6 #
  • RT @siliconflorist: 20 awesome Portland panel proposals in the #SXSW Interactive Panel Picker #pdxtech http://bit.ly/8DbBA #
  • Are there any Craigslist/Google Maps mashups that show commercial/office listings, instead of apartments? #
  • ZOMG! Sonic Ruler is the coolest iPhone app I’ve seen in a LONG time. Measure distance by echolocation. Awesome! 🙂 http://bit.ly/6i1tV #
  • Now that Wikipedia has an official iPhone app are you going to use it? I’ll probably stick with the mobile site. It’s faster and Googleable. #
  • I’ve used (and enjoyed) Wikipedia apps like Kiwi, Wikipanion, and Wapedia, but when m.wikipedia.org came along, I stopped using all of them. #
  • @taptu But Wapedia appears to be owned/run by you, Taptu. And it has ads. Why put ads on Wikipedia content? in reply to taptu #
  • I am suspicious that Verizon is throttling YouTube video downloads on my 15Mbps Fios connection at home. They’re so slow. How do I check? #
  • Everything else is fast(ish) over my Fios. YouTube videos are decently fast at work and even 3G. But YouTube just *sucks* over my home Fios. #
  • What’s that site that let’s you check if your ISP is throttling/choking certain sites or protocols? #isverizonthrottlingyoutube #
  • Too tired tonight, but enough of you said “YouTube is slow on Verizon Fios for me, too” that I’m going to look into it a little more. #
