  • Remember my rant about wanting Tweetie to upload pics to Flickr, and get a flic.kr short URL back? Someone built it: @Flickr4Tw1tter Yay! #
  • I've tested @Flickr4Tw1tter, and it works as expected. Pic goes to Flickr, Tweetie 2 gets a flic.kr short URL back. Thanks, Steven! πŸ™‚ #
  • I love doing a mind meld/braindump with someone who's never used a feed reader before. I can smell the burning synapses. It's awesome. πŸ™‚ #

  • Is Itaipu still offline? Largest hydro plant in the world. 9 Brazilian states and 10s millions w/o power. I used to live hours from there. #

  • Oh, cool! @usina_itaipu is the dam's official Twitter acct. It's in Portugeese, though (mine's rusty, but workable). #
  • Apparently the failure wasn't at Itaipu, but with the transmission system. The dam is generating lots of power, but can't send it anywhere. #
  • Transmission to the Paraguay side was quickly restored, but is still down for the majority of their capacity in Brazil #

  • Just got a cold call from a Social Media Expert, inviting me to a Social Media Event. A blind call. On the phone. *boggle* #
  • So I've got my tweets going into Facebook as status updates, via the FB app. How do I make my status updates go to Twitter as tweets? #
  • @mfriesen @natetrue It would have to be smart enough to avoid the endless update black hole. FriendFeed is smart enough. And they bought FF. #
  • Pludging the Mac OS X 10.6.2 update. Fingers crossed. #
  • I'm about to experiment with reader2twitter.appspot.com (tweeting my GReader shared items). Apologies in advance if it burps up old stuff. #

Netflix Instant Streaming for PS3 Has Arrived

Just got the disc tonight, haven’t actually tried it out yet. It’s kind if lame that you have to insert the disc every time you want to stream something – as I understand it, it’s because they’re doing the streaming as a BD Live feature, which requires a Blu-Ray disc. A native Playstation 3 software app is supposed to be coming soon. Looking forward to that.

I’ll try it out, and let you know how it works. I can’t wait to teach my kids how to use this. We’ve been Netflix subscribers for years, but I only recently discovered the Watch Instantly streaming library. There are a *LOT* more movies and TV shows that I’d want to watch than I thought I’d find. Not a bad deal at all.

Now, if they’d just launch a Watch Instantly iPhone app… πŸ˜‰
