Getting ready for WWDC – clearing room on my MacBook Pro, watching some DevCenter videos to update myself, reading some dev docs.
At WWDC, in overflow keynote room in spite of being there 1-1/2 hour early.
Does it seem from the iPhone demos that the iPhone app store is still a few weeks away? I had hoped sooner, and hopefully I’m wrong.
Back at WWDC. Shannon and I have first three chapters of the SDK portion of our “iPhone in Action” book, checking them against sessions.

Yeah! Finally got my iPhone Developer Program approved. Hopefully can now start to build apps to test on iPhones rather then use simulator.
just posted a project to ScriptLance http://www.scriptlance.com/projects/1213289667.shtml for a pseudoanonymous ephemeral location info.
I open to working with others on a better spec for it. Think twitter for locations rather then user ids, using Google App Engine.
Is there a technical name for the green/red/yellow cards that Jerry’s Group uses during conferences for the audience to show approval/disap?

Have iPhone Dev Cert, looking for more good ideas for free and $0.99 iPhone apps to rapid prototype for iPhone appstore launch.
First iPhone SDK app I’ll put in store will be a free red green card app as per http://tinyurl.com/5tumvv
I talked some people into doing a web based on at iPhoneDevCamp last year, but web wasn’t reliable enough.
Have simple red:green app working on iPhone, implementing Jerry’s conference moderation cards. But no good icon, anyone have any ideas?
No Supernova for me this year. I’m tired of speaker-in-the-front conferences. Even WWDC would have benefitted from an unconference day.

I do use the red:green colon from the graphic in the about box, but the text red:green didn’t work (too wide). Not sure about colons

Thanks for all the twitter updates re: ocu2008 and for taking notes on my sessions!

Any topnotch Python coders out there interested in writing a Google App Engine ephemeral locality service? Have budget, no coders.
Listened to over 40 eclectic musicians installled in niches at Garden of Memory Summer Solstice Concert in a Julia Morgan columbarium.
I spent most of the day preparing for a presentation that I’m giving in Korea this week for Social Media training for execs. Leave tomorrow.
L:SFO waiting in a United Boeing 777 for trip to Seoul, South Korea. Speaking at a conference of executive trainers on Thursday. Client=JnJ.
L:The Ritz-Carlton, Seoul. I didn’t arrive in time for the group activity, so I wandered the neighborhood and ate local. Koreans like spicy!
I’ve been doing last minute prep for my presentation tomorrow. Thankfully someone loaned me a projector to test on so I can avoid glitches.

I now own collaborativetools.com and collaborativepatterns.com – hmm, what to do with them.
I’ve been working on a public API for an ephemeral location service, suitable (but exclusively) for iPhone apps, allowing pseudoanonymity.
If you are interested in an advance look at this ephemeral location API, let me know. Hope to have a first public draft soon.
Just finished my social web presention. Yeah!

BTW, I am a great fan of Nickel Creek. I like Chris Thile’s other bluegrass work, but the last Nickel Creek album blew my socks off.
Hmm, NYT mentions @berkeleycowork http://tinyurl.com/5v92ol
At Incheon Seoul Airport, waiting for my flight back to SFO. Leave Monday at 2:10pm, but arrive Monday at 8:30am. Hopefully can fall asleep.
Arrived SFO, slept reasonably well so hopefully that will reduce jetlag.
In spite off efforts to avoid it, I had to nap today. Transitioning from Korea time back to Pacific time is tough.
