  • A Heat Map of Where I Go (my Foursquare checkins) – pretty cool! πŸ™‚ http://bit.ly/56tenM #
  • You have seen the Iron Man 2 trailer, right? AWESOMESAUCE. I can't wait for this movie! πŸ™‚ http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/ironman/ #
  • Just counted, and I have 230 songs in my Rock Band library (from Rock Band 1 and 2, Lego Rock Band, and about 50 downloads). Awesome. πŸ™‚ #
  • @smileysejalee Not at all. I find most of my new music discovery happens via Rock Band these days. πŸ™‚ in reply to smileysejalee #
  • So glad I switched fake plastic rock platforms to Rock Band from Guitar Hero last year. No way would I end up with 230 songs in GH. #

  • I just became the mayor of Intel – Jones Farm 1 Building on @foursquare! http://4sq.com/7f8CZ8 #
  • Lunch with the extended team. What a great bunch of people I work with. We're all so talented and dysfuncional. πŸ™‚ #
  • Had some great White Elephant gifts – Up and Ken Burns' Civil War on DVD – but they got stolen. Ended up with a nice poker set. πŸ™‚ #
  • @TheSquare bit.ly and j.mp URL interchangeability has been there from the start. πŸ™‚ in reply to TheSquare #
  • Rockin' my new Chicken Techno ringtone. πŸ™‚ #
  • According to analytics.ad.ly, no one from Wyoming, North Dakota, or Mississippi is following me on Twitter. #
  • @kathyannfarrel I don't think you heard my Techno Chicken ringtone earlier, because I just made it, but I might have been playing the video. in reply to kathyannfarrel #
  • The Chicken Techno video I keep talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8410qUT4QtA ( a Dominos commercial, remixed by Oli Chang) #
  • I have seen our backyard chickens do each of the moves and heard them make each of the sounds in that video. πŸ™‚ #
  • Techno Chicken is the new Keyboard Cat. #youhearditherefirst #
  • @JenFloyd08 @IgniteMedford? Awesome! When! I want to go (we have family down there). Cool! πŸ™‚ in reply to JenFloyd08 #

  • Oh, that's why things are so quiet. I quit Mail.app, and forgot to restart it. πŸ™‚ #
  • Intel Software Network Team Lunch! πŸ™‚ http://post.ly/FHSu #
  • In a 5 hour meeting with 40 people in a room that holds 20. No power outlets. And we're all soggy from the rain, Good times. πŸ™‚ #
  • Nothing like coming home from work and playing Nerf swords with the kids. πŸ™‚ #
  • Two of my favorite geo games/apps, Waze and Foursquare, are now more integrated. Yay! πŸ™‚ http://j.mp/4D4kwq /via @scobleizer #
  • Overheard: "The Geeks rule the world, but the Rednecks own the guns." πŸ™‚ #
  • As many have pointed out, I'm well aware that "geeks" and "rednecks" do not, in fact, have mutually exclusive ownership of "the guns". πŸ™‚ #

  • I just ousted @k1mb3rly as the mayor of Fred Meyer – TV Highway on @foursquare! http://4sq.com/RFcau #
  • Picked up a new Nerf sword on a whim – the Marauder long sword. Compared to my other one, it's HUGE. And awesome. Highly recommended. πŸ™‚ #
  • Got our Christmas tree, and Rachel's making homemade Martha Stewart mac and cheese before a decorating marathon. Ho ho ho! #
  • OH: "You just can't put up a Christmas tree without swearing. It's impossible."

    OK, that was me. πŸ˜‰ #

  • Nice! Waze 1.4 update for iPhone includes Foursquare integration. #
  • Still Brrr… (but in HDR this time!) http://post.ly/EnBO #
  • @KarenPearson Oh no! So sorry to hear that. Hope everyone's OK… in reply to KarenPearson #
  • @Jmartens I use a Griffin TuneFlex with SmartClick to dock my iPhone in my car. Works great. #
  • @Jmartens I also just today won a Belkin TuneBase FM as a holiday party door prize, that I'll put in my wife's car: http://bit.ly/8WwvvS in reply to Jmartens #
  • RT @cabel: Huh, nice new layout for the iPhone Apps in iTunes! http://twitpic.com/t4da0 (I don't see this yet, but been looking fwd to it) #
  • @Jmartens Mmm, yeah, I'd probably skip that one. πŸ˜‰ in reply to Jmartens #
  • @marshallk "Social media" is like "email" or "the web" – it can be used for SO many things, in different ways, it's almost meaningless. in reply to marshallk #
  • Uh oh. The Wolfram Alpha iPhone app is marked down from $50 to $20 rest of the year. I might buy it… http://bit.ly/8Uf6QM #
  • Yes, I know you can just go to the Wolfram Alpha site. And I have no practical need for it. But it's the world's most awesome calculator! #
  • With the kids at the Ward Christmas Party. @rachelbancroft's not feeling well. πŸ™ #
  • That didn't take long. I already caved in and bought the discounted WolframAlpha iPhone app at $20. So cool. πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/t4u4i #

  • Isolated the frozen burst pipe in the garage (to the outside hose), so I postponed the plumber. I'm sure others are in worse shape this AM. #
  • Brrr! http://twitpic.com/sxs6f #
  • @civrot Heh. It's a picture of my neighbor's house, taken through the thick ice crystals that grew on my car's windows overnight. πŸ™‚ in reply to civrot #
  • Oops. I wasn't paying attention, but for those who were participating in the pool on when I would hit 400 iPhone apps, I'm at 405 now. πŸ™‚ #
  • Of the 405 iPhone apps I've ever downloaded, 109 have earned a "keeper" place, and are actually installed on my phone. Nine pages. πŸ™‚ #
  • IMDB's new iPhone app is very slick. Even shows movie times and TV listings. Consider it today's App Crack Reconnendation from me. πŸ™‚ #
  • @billpearson That Techno Chicken video (Oli Chang remix) is my new favorite YouTube video. πŸ™‚ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8410qUT4QtA #
  • Here's what the storage on my iPhone (32GB) looks like. Those 109 apps only take up 1.24GB: http://twitpic.com/syscc #
  • As soon as Google Chrome for Mac gets a bookmark manager, and support for XMarks and 1Password, I'm in. It's SO fast. #
  • @linuxaid Xmarks for Chrome works on the Mac? I can't get it to install (greyed out). I'm on the dev channel build. in reply to linuxaid #
  • @linuxaid Extension support is supposed to be coming to Chrome for Mac soon. I'm just impatient. πŸ™‚ in reply to linuxaid #
  • RT @ashokraj: Back in stock now Monoprice.com – iPhone Backup Battery Pack (2200mAh) http://monoprice.com/go_products.asp?p_id=5480 #
