Getting ready for WWDC – clearing room on my MacBook Pro, watching some DevCenter videos to update myself, reading some dev docs.

Mon Jun 09 02:31:09 +0000 2008

At WWDC, in overflow keynote room in spite of being there 1-1/2 hour early.

Mon Jun 09 17:07:09 +0000 2008

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.

Mon Jun 09 17:52:32 +0000 2008

Back at WWDC. Shannon and I have first three chapters of the SDK portion of our “iPhone in Action” book, checking them against sessions.

Tue Jun 10 16:03:01 +0000 2008

If you are interested in our iPhone book “iPhone in Action: Building Mobile Applications” go to

Yeah! Finally got my iPhone Developer Program approved. Hopefully can now start to build apps to test on iPhones rather then use simulator.

Wed Jun 11 17:41:00 +0000 2008

just posted a project to ScriptLance for a pseudoanonymous ephemeral location info.

Thu Jun 12 19:08:20 +0000 2008

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.

Thu Jun 12 22:49:40 +0000 2008

First iPhone SDK app I’ll put in store will be a free red green card app as per

Thu Jun 12 22:56:40 +0000 2008

I talked some people into doing a web based on at iPhoneDevCamp last year, but web wasn’t reliable enough.

Thu Jun 12 22:57:22 +0000 2008

Have simple red:green app working on iPhone, implementing Jerry’s conference moderation cards. But no good icon, anyone have any ideas?

Mon Jun 16 21:27:53 +0000 2008

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.

Thu Jun 19 07:18:21 +0000 2008

Listened to over 40 eclectic musicians installled in niches at Garden of Memory Summer Solstice Concert in a Julia Morgan columbarium.

Sun Jun 22 06:36:52 +0000 2008

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.

Mon Jun 23 00:30:42 +0000 2008

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.

Mon Jun 23 19:58:17 +0000 2008

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!

Tue Jun 24 11:53:17 +0000 2008

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.

Wed Jun 25 08:52:07 +0000 2008

My blog post on why I’m in Seoul, South Korea this week:

Wed Jun 25 08:53:14 +0000 2008

I now own and – hmm, what to do with them.

Wed Jun 25 08:58:20 +0000 2008

I’ve been working on a public API for an ephemeral location service, suitable (but exclusively) for iPhone apps, allowing pseudoanonymity.

Thu Jun 26 03:39:05 +0000 2008

If you are interested in an advance look at this ephemeral location API, let me know. Hope to have a first public draft soon.

Thu Jun 26 03:39:52 +0000 2008

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

Fri Jun 27 13:22:55 +0000 2008

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.

Mon Jun 30 02:35:28 +0000 2008

Arrived SFO, slept reasonably well so hopefully that will reduce jetlag.

Mon Jun 30 15:27:44 +0000 2008

In spite off efforts to avoid it, I had to nap today. Transitioning from Korea time back to Pacific time is tough.
