Josh’s Lifelog for 2010-05-16

  • First (and WAY early) for Cory @Doctorow's signing at 2PM. Yes, I am that nerd. πŸ™‚ (@ Powell's Books) http://4sq.com/8T9WrO #
  • The staff at @Powells say there will be no line for the Cory @Doctorow signing, and only expect about 100 people. I think they're mistaken. #
  • It appears I overestimated the nerd throng that would turn out for the @Doctorow signing. Perhaps you all don't love Cory like I do. πŸ™‚ #
  • Then again, perhaps it wasn't strictly necessary for me to show up at 9AM for @Doctorow's 2PM signing. πŸ™‚ But hey, hanging out at @Powells! #
  • I'm going to ask @Doctorow to sign my iPad because, despite its closedness in some areas, it's the best open ebook reader I've ever used. #
  • I've got ePub versions of all of @Doctorow's books in iBooks on my iPad. I've been reading For The Win on it since it came out. #
  • @phj_pdx you'll love FTW. It's great so far (I'm about 80% through it). Classic Cory. πŸ™‚ in reply to phj_pdx #
  • @funnymonkey I'll have him sign in a drawing app like Sketchbook, with his finger. I'm a digital kind of guy. πŸ™‚ in reply to funnymonkey #
  • They're settig up the chairs for @Doctorow at @Powells now. Trying to make sure I get a good seat. πŸ™‚ #
  • Good seat obtained: front and center! /cc @Doctorow @Powells http://twitpic.com/1o3b0b #
  • @tlockney it's not too crazy. About 30 ppl so far. Plenty room – come on down! πŸ™‚ in reply to tlockney #
  • There are some SERIOUSLY geeky people here for the @doctorow reading. Also many kids, which is very cool. /via @Heronymus #
  • Cory @Doctorow came out a few minutes early to chat with us. Yay! πŸ™‚ /cc @Powells http://twitpic.com/1o3o8g #
  • @bsneed about a hundred here, hard to count from the front row. A good crowd, lots of relevant geek t-shirts. πŸ™‚ in reply to bsneed #
  • Cory @Doctorow signed my iPad, and my copy of FTW. Yay! I'll post the image later. Thanks, Cory! πŸ™‚ #
  • I also recorded audio of Cory @Doctorow, and got permission from @Powells to post it. Give me a few days on that one. πŸ™‚ #
  • @rael @doctorow D'oh! I should have nabbed a copy of Essential Blogging and had you both sign it! πŸ™‚ in reply to rael #
  • @masonwest sorry I missed you! I ha to run after the signing. πŸ™ in reply to masonwest #
  • @jezlyn FTW came out just a few days ago. It's really good – grab it! πŸ™‚ in reply to jezlyn #
  • Cory Doctorow in da haus http://tweetphoto.com/22573580 /via @trevordodge #
  • I'll post @Doctorow @Powells pics later (I had my D40 and a great seat). πŸ™‚ #
  • @StephStricklen would have been awesome to get @Doctorow on the show. Next time I'll try to kidnap him and bring him to the studio. πŸ˜‰ in reply to StephStricklen #
  • @xolotl @parenthacks @rael @doctorow I'm totally jealous, in a totally non-stalkerish way. *non-chalant whistle* πŸ™‚ #
  • 25 posts in one day about attending an event with one's nerd idol isn't too many, right? Right? πŸ™‚ #
