  • @ravenme I have no problem spending $50 on a really good console game, which makes it *SO* easy to justify a few $$ for an iPhone app. πŸ™‚ in reply to ravenme #
  • @ravenme I hve iPhone games that have given me many more hours of joy than some of my console games. Bang for the buck = off the charts. #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: RT @drnormal: All the @IgnitePortland 7 videos from the live stream are posted here: http://techlovelive.blip.tv #ip7 #

  • Google's forced me to pick a new password for "suspicious activity" twice since I installed Trillian for iPhone. Dumping it while I t-shoot. #
  • @Jerry_Makare I've never heard of anyone daisy chaining Tricasters together, but I suppose it could work. Would be an unholy mess… πŸ™‚ in reply to Jerry_Makare #
  • RT @IgnitePortland: @mcclure et al: we had about 600 people at the Bagdad. Not sure how many on the stream (finding out).#IP7 #
  • If a hypothetical elementary school PTA hypothetically shows a recent DVD at the schoo as a fundraiser, how come the MPAA doesn't sue them? #
  • @Jerry_Makare You are a mad man. Now quit it and go have a fun weekend! πŸ˜› in reply to Jerry_Makare #

  • Watching the Al Gore keynote at Supercomputing 09. We couldn't get permission to livestream it for @isntv. πŸ™ #
  • @samgrover Yes, I can tweet. πŸ™‚ Al Gore's telling funny stories, about him starting a low cost family chain of restaurants. πŸ™‚ in reply to samgrover #
  • @ahockley Heh. Mr. Gore's people were *quite* clear about what would happen to me if I did that. πŸ˜‰ in reply to ahockley #
  • RT @siliconflorist: @IgnitePortland 7: How to win at Ignite or Tips and tricks for getting the most out of Ignite #ip7 http://bit.ly/4m2b1V #
  • @xolotl You can't be listening to Al Gore on OPB. I'm listening to him at the convention center. One of the two must be a clone impostor. in reply to xolotl #
  • @ThinkOutLoudOPB Oh, well that makes sense. I still like my "clone impostor" explanation/story better. πŸ™‚ in reply to ThinkOutLoudOPB #
  • 1Password 3.0 is out. $19.95 upgrade until Nov. 30. Amazing, lifechanging, utterly useful piece of software if you're a Mac user. Get it. #
  • Google's livestreaming their Chrome OS announcement: http://bit.ly/3uhEME Interesting to me a number of levels. πŸ™‚ (via @gruber) #
  • I just got Voice Candy for Mac for free from tap tap tap. They just launched Voices for iPhone http://bit.ly/i56Un #
  • My kids are going to have *so* much fun with tap tap tap's new Voices iPhone app. The already love to record and hear themselves talk. πŸ™‚ #

  • There are three empty rows of #IP7 seats in front of me (front right of the Bagdad). Fill 'em up! πŸ™‚ #
  • It has become customary for me to sit on the edge of the stage and swing my legs like a kid while people file into Ignite Portland. πŸ™‚ #
  • Was just interviewed by @lilbutterfly for her docmentary on Ignite. Have a hole burnt in my vision from the bright light. πŸ™‚ #IP7 #

And Ignite Portland 7 is tonight! (I’m one of the founders.) Come out to the Bagdad theater or watch the livestream at http://www.igniteportland.com.
