  • @OverCoffeeMedia Nice work on the blog theme. You take the header picture or did you find it somewhere? in reply to OverCoffeeMedia #
  • @OverCoffeeMedia “…42% of legacy news sites have polls or surveys.” Too bad nobody uses them. Blogs are better for community building. in reply to OverCoffeeMedia #

  • Goodby from Sundee in Kansas. See you beneath sunrise and a little bit left. #
  • @jdschultz Isn’t every episode of TWiT the Twitter episode? Two eps ago Leo left Dvorak off so they could talk about nothing but Twitter. in reply to jdschultz #
  • I saw a new Mazda yesterday. Who does that? I didn’t even know that was an option…thought you could only just buy them used. #

  • Archiving email from old users, working on migration, listening to This Week in Law. #
  • Social Media Optimization – A depressingly worse concept than search engine optimization snake oil. #
  • @dreamnotoftoday Search engines are important; there is a snake-oil industry built around SEO that can be a waste of money if not done right in reply to dreamnotoftoday #

  • Settling in to watch Slumdog Millionaire on Blu-ray. Heard it was pretty good. #
  • Samsung BD-P1200 is the worst Blu-ray player made by someone other than Sony. #
  • RT @dangfriggit: I sold my home today. Used auctioneer techniques to do it. Made a 100,000 dollar profit. Who says Wow isn’t any use in life #
  • Thanks, NPR, for the spoiler regarding Kutner’s death on Monday’s episode of House. I guess that’s what I get for using automated DVR. #
  • @EricaHopTen Where is Ben Folds? in reply to EricaHopTen #
  • @EricaHopTen Wow. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard. How much are tickets? What time is the show? in reply to EricaHopTen #
  • @EricaHopTen Thanks! in reply to EricaHopTen #
  • @dpoe Actor Kal Penn, House’s Lawrence Kutner, took a job as associate director at the Office of Public Liaison in the White House. in reply to dpoe #
  • @dpoe He worked for the Obama campaign. Said his two loves are acting and public service. Obama (admin) offered him a job and he took it. in reply to dpoe #
  • I’m definitely thinking that the Seesmic Desktop is better than TweetDeck. That’s my professional opinion after 90 seconds of testing. #
  • @jdschultz Twitterfall == good browser client. I’m using the new Tweetdeck and Seesmic. Seesmic is prettier, Tweetdeck still more powerful. #
  • There should be a toggle on my TwitScoop to turn off stuff about foreign sports. I thought “Chelsea” was about Chelsea Handler. #
  • Someone should merge the Speed Dial and Xmarks plugins on Firefox so my speed dials are synchronized between my computers. #
  • @dreamnotoftoday That’s what I learned. I still hold that they’re probably not as funny as Chelsea Handler. in reply to dreamnotoftoday #
  • @jdschultz Worthy goal; I love my Eee. When I’m in the office, though, it’s silly for me to use a netbook or webapps because they’re so slow in reply to jdschultz #
  • @HartkeRecords Picture or it didn’t happen. in reply to HartkeRecords #
  • @jdschultz I have the 901 – fastest 9″ model, Bluetooth and 802.11n. If you want a 10″ for the bigger keyboard, get the 1000HE. in reply to jdschultz #
  • @jdschultz I installed Ubuntu Linux on my Eee the first time I turned it on. It’s glorious. You’ll want the kernel from array.org in reply to jdschultz #
  • Tweetdeck keeps making noise every few minutes about Facebook, though there aren’t new updates. Any way to stop that? #
  • Finished round of ignoring and blocking applications on Facebook. Again: I’m not a Facebook apps whore & don’t want to follow your business. #
  • @brandonhowe But are you getting notifications without actual updates? I am. in reply to brandonhowe #
  • @dreamnotoftoday You liking it? Will it actually enhance productivity like Compiz-Fusion or is it just a cute, show-off util? in reply to dreamnotoftoday #
  • @jdschultz I’ve done several installs of Ubuntu on different Eee PCs…if you get one, let me know. There are some tricks I’d love to share. in reply to jdschultz #
  • @dreamnotoftoday That was my impression from the screenshots. Let me know if you give it a thumbs up, else I won’t bother with it. in reply to dreamnotoftoday #
