  • In case you're wondering, yes I am going to try to get @donttrythis @wilw et al to "autograph" my iPad (in Sketchbook or Layers). #w00tstock #
  • Absolutely loving reading all the nerd t-shirts on people walking the #w00tstock line. These are my people. πŸ™‚ #
  • Settled for #w00tstock Got good seats. Got food and drink. Got an @rstevens designed tshirt. Let the w00ting begin! πŸ™‚ #
  • Very interesting device dichotomy at #w00tstock Some are iPhone people. Some are Nintendo DS people. #differentnerdstrokes #
  • My face already hurts from laughing and my voice already hurts from yelling. Going tweet silent. #w00tstock πŸ™‚ #
  • #w00tstock intermission. This might just be the most fun I have *ever* had. πŸ™‚ #seriously #
  • I'm in the same room with Adam Savage. *faint* #w00tstock /cc @donttrythis πŸ™‚ #

  • I become triply conscious of my spelling, grammar, and usage when emailing my daughter's 1st grade teacher. πŸ™‚ #
  • Ignite Portland 9 planning kickoff! Man, I missed the Pad Se Ew and crab puffs. πŸ™‚ (@ E-San Thai Cuisine) http://4sq.com/6tSDuc #
  • Half a bachelor weekend for @gabebancroft and I while @rachelbancroft is on a Girl Scout campout with @emmabancroft. #
  • If @gabebancroft we're older than three, we'd totally be going to see Iron Man 2. Possibly multiple times. πŸ™‚ #
  • Watched Up on Blu-Ray with @gabebancroft, now he's in bed, and I'm watching Stat Trek II on Netflix. Ahh… πŸ™‚ #
  • Gotta rest up. I'm stoked for #w00tstock Portland tomorrow. I have a serious nerd crush on @donttrythis and @wilw. πŸ™‚ #

  • Not sure the RC heli is going to have enough lift to sling a camera underneath, which was my original plan. We'll see. #
  • RT @wilw: Everything you ever wanted to know about w00tstock 2.x this wknd in Seattle and Portland: http://bit.ly/bGftZn (/me: can't wait!) #
  • A We Rule update just came through. Now I can see the dozens of people I've friended. And I built a Blacksmith's Shop. Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • Helping in @emmabancroft's 1st grade computer lab. Have mixed feelings about teaching kids how to use PowerPoint. πŸ™‚ #
  • @LanceWeber I know! But at least they're using it for it's intended purpose – to create presentations. πŸ™‚ in reply to LanceWeber #
  • If I wasn't so wiped out, I'd totally be going to a midnight showing of Iron Man 2. #old #wimp #

  • Is it just me, or has Gmail been really slow the last few days? #
  • No one has noticed my new glasses, but a couple of people have complimented me on my beard this morning. πŸ™‚ #
  • My New Nerd Glasses http://post.ly/ewCv #
  • @shadowbottle Not sure if I'll change my avatar – I've been using my current one for a long time. I might not recognize myself without it! in reply to shadowbottle #
  • @CptNemo9189 @ericskiff Thanks! I think they capture the Essence of Nerd well. πŸ™‚ in reply to CptNemo9189 #
  • So, can anyone give a good explanation of the difference between Dropbox and SugarSync for a Mac/iPhone/iPad user like me? #
  • @funkatron @davechen Thanks for the opinions. I'm a huge Dropbox fan, too. Jealous of the doc type handling SugarSync's iPad app can do, tho #
  • Solar Walk, a cool 3D solar system model (from the folks who did Star Walk), is now available for iPad as a Universal app. #
  • @funkatron I've send it as "feedback" to Dropbox. if you know any of the devs there, pass the word along. πŸ™‚ in reply to funkatron #
  • Want Dropbox to add file handling support in their iPad/iPhone app? Go to https://www.dropbox.com/votebox, search iPad, and vote. #
  • Had a blast learning to fly my new RC heli (a Syma Chinook S026) in the living room tonight. @rachelbancroft wasn't as enthusiastic. πŸ™‚ #
  • Not sure the heli is going to have enough lift to sling a camera underneath, which was my original plan. We'll see. #

  • DODOcase is a *gorgeous* iPad case made to look like a classic Moleskine notebook. Want. http://www.dodocase.com/ (hat tip @bsneed) #
  • RT @ravenme: Dropbox for iPad! /via @semaphoria [Awesome news, downloading now…] #
  • Now that Dropbox is on the iPad natively (along with Instapaper, Kindle, and Simplenote), that only leaves Reeder and Tweetie to pine for… #
  • @gregleff I will call Tweetie "Twitter for iPad" when it's out, and when they pry Tweetie from my cold, dead memory. πŸ™‚ in reply to gregleff #
  • Hey look – my iPad Camera Connection Kit arrived! http://twitpic.com/1ks91l #

  • RT @chartier: Behold: five iPad bags enter… and five leave. iPad Bag Reviews are up: http://bit.ly/9BsvOr (/me: WANT.) #
  • If you don't have a wireless data plan, and use a ton of data, why can you be charged more than a plan would cost? http://j.mp/cCbzgR #
  • Working on a post of all the iPad apps I'm using (as of today – they're in constant flux). #
  • RT @penmachine: I really really hope this new Iron Man movie doesn't suck. The first one was such a delightful surprise. #
  • Just went to a magical place. No one would believe me if I told you where. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @LynnSiprelle No, but Dairy Queen is indeed a magical land. I could really use a Banana Cream Pie Blizzard about now. πŸ™‚ in reply to LynnSiprelle #
  • @u2elan Never been to Aspen, but it sounds nice. 'Course, I don't ski or drink beer, so… πŸ™‚ in reply to u2elan #
  • Ooh! New crops available for planting in We Rule! Magic Cauliflower! Magic Asparagus! πŸ™‚ #guiltypleasure #
  • RT @chartier: RT @al3x: BOOM official Twitter Android app: http://bit.ly/920lGV #
  • @gregleff I'm level 18 in We Rule, and I have the Magic Cauliflower and Asparagus. But a bunch of stuff comes at level 20+ (tomato, etc.) in reply to gregleff #

  • My "what's on my iPad" post ended up being 5000 words – 108 mini reviews of all the apps I have loaded: http://j.mp/9z6T5J #
  • RT @adamd: @jabancroft I'm not even 1,000 words into that post and my resistance is fading. I see an iPad in my future. /me: πŸ™‚ #
  • I could probably do another 5000 words on the iPhone apps that I use. And another 5000 on my Mobile Safari bookmarks. Whew. πŸ™‚ #
  • @pfsorenson I do use Siri. It's quite useful, and as they add more APIs and services, it will get moreso. Can't wait to see what Apple does. in reply to pfsorenson #
  • @amstel was right – Twittelator for iPad is very nice. Seems to be a lot of wasted space at first, not sure if it'll grow on me. in reply to amstel #
  • @gregr yeah, I know. I'll probably break down and buy both Flight Control HD and NetNewsWire. Just gotta let my app fund fill back up. πŸ™‚ in reply to gregr #
