Not worth $143 to Santa Barbara – I’ve taken that train a number of times and it isn’t that long of a trip. First class might be ok

I believe that AMTRAK first class might have airplane-style power, and it isn’t much more in price. Worth investigating.

Odd. It has been a couple of years since I took it (Crypto conf is in August in Santa Barbara). But it may be worth phone call

I woke early this morning to the sounds of daunting rainstorm, with driving sheets of rain. Makes heading to YMCA for exercise intimidating.

I like ShedRain brain of umbrellas. They sell them at REI. Open with a snap, close with a snap, and wind blowout resistant.

On way to pick up @factoryjoe at Ashby BART to keep him from having to walk through the driving rain to #berkeleycoworking.

Weird, whenever I’ve gone to Santa Barbarba it is on the Coast Starlight. No wonder it is going to take you so many hours.

At #OpenIDDevCamp at Six Apart in SF a bit early. Thought I could offer my help.

Sat Jan 12 00:49:16 +0000 2008

Back at OpenIDDevCamp. Had some good discussions last night on UI issues of endpoints, and on iPhone / OpenID UI issues.

Sat Jan 12 18:17:21 +0000 2008

Some discussion at #OpenIDDevCamp on the topic of integrating oAuth and OpenID. By adding and OpenID extention to oAuth removes a user step.

Sat Jan 12 22:35:40 +0000 2008

Worked with @jsmarr on a couple of plaxo bugs. Apparently everyone that is already on Plaxo, and a link to me on LinkedIn, got an email.

I don’t invite people to social networks, I only connect to people who already have accounts on that network.

Talking with Tantek about TZ in microformats – issue of putting just -08:00 or putting in more info, i.e. olsen value “America/Los Angeles”

Mon Jan 14 03:10:47 +0000 2008

Tantek was amused by me using as my end point of for my xfolk tags, i.e. <a rel=”tag” href=”&gt

Mon Jan 14 03:33:05 +0000 2008

Finished up OpenIDDevCamp and back at home. It was an excellent “working” conference ala MacHack, rather then a more “scan” oriented one.

Mon Jan 14 06:52:16 +0000 2008

Replying to @t

just a note to you about how myOpenID’s hcard made the same decision independently about the TZ value to not put -08:00 and only put text

Mon Jan 14 06:53:36 +0000 2008

Replying to @kevinmarks

Actually, what we were talking about was “America/Los Angeles” which can be looked up, rather then “-08:00” which may not be PDT

Mon Jan 14 07:05:53 +0000 2008

Replying to @kevinmarks

The problem is that vCard, and thus hCard, say use “-08:00”, without context of daylight or not. Now OpenID sreg uses it too.

Mon Jan 14 07:07:00 +0000 2008

I had some good discussions today at #OpenIDDevCamp re: #dataportability and’s recent publicity this week.

Another interesting reference, and more current

Mon Jan 14 07:17:17 +0000 2008

Replying to @rycaut

The thing is that TZ is typically put on static pages, so the tz of -8 might be accurate when posted, but not read.

Mon Jan 14 08:23:55 +0000 2008

Replying to @rycaut

The Olson Time Zone database at however is kept up to date. So TZ will be correct using it.

Mon Jan 14 08:26:08 +0000 2008

Replying to @rycaut

So as long as you put “America/Los Angeles” or “-08:00; America/Los Angeles”, and the app get the Olson DB, time zone will work.

Mon Jan 14 08:29:08 +0000 2008

Replying to @rycaut

Of course, as @t points out, in a perfect world, TZ in an hcard should dynamically refer to where you truly are. But 99.9 are static

I was mainly speaking of the tz attribute in the microformat hcard, which is suppost to be the zone you want GMT to be displayed in.

No firewire for MacBook Air is a big concern for me, as I have a lot of firewire drives for doing backup, etc.

AirBook cons: no removable battery, no fireware (thus no target disk mode), no ethernet, 1 USB 2.0 port, backup w/o TM difficult.

Hmm, tried login w/ new OpenID provider login with Plaxo, which uses v2.0, but Yahoo says that Plaxo isn’t. Any other 2.0 test?

Thu Jan 17 17:37:29 +0000 2008

Replying to @jackhodgson

I have a sprint card, which I can’t use with AirBook, which makes me really wireless. If Apple had included one, it would help.

Thu Jan 17 17:39:14 +0000 2008

If you are going to be buying a AirBook, make sure you have good time machine backup. No target-disk mode makes recovery difficult.

Thu Jan 17 18:14:32 +0000 2008

Multitouch on AirBook is cool – three finger scrolling, two finger pinch zoom rotate.

Off to SF to talk data portability.
