I just got a Scottevest “Essential Jacket” This is the one made popular by some silly Steve Wozniak videos.

Thu Nov 06 07:10:07 +0000 2008

I like the Scottevest Essential because it is a basic simple black jacket on outside, great for bay area foggy weather, but geeky inside.

Thu Nov 06 07:11:12 +0000 2008

The Scottevest Essential is quite comfortable, and has 19 well designed pockets that don’t interfere with each other (little doubling).

Was at IIW yesterday, some good conversations. Tried pitching the OpenID/OATH book that I talked about last year, but no sponsors.

Wed Nov 12 21:00:29 +0000 2008

Still looking for an OpenID OP that is really optimized for the iPhone, including an alternate authentication method rather then passwords.

Wed Nov 12 21:04:19 +0000 2008

From IIW yesterday it looks like iNames are dead. A number of key people keeping the flame going are now at other companies.

Wed Nov 12 21:06:21 +0000 2008

Vidoop should theoretically have a good iPhone experience as an OpenID OP identity provider, however, you still have to type text.

Another glass ceiling being broken - first female four-star army general is nominated:

Luxo Jr. of Pixar fame is 22 years old now. This silly and SNSFW spoof made me laugh:

Practicing my hang drum tonight - my music composition skills are better then my playing skills. Just have to keep practicing.

Let the Right One In (Låt Den Rätte Komma In) – great swedish teenage vampire love story. Go see it before it leaves the indie theatres.

Mon Nov 17 08:41:45 +0000 2008

At NOHspace, for a dance performance of the Dance Monks, with live music by my hang drum teacher’s group Samavesha.

Tue Nov 18 04:09:56 +0000 2008

I’m at NOHspace again, recording Samasheva–yesterday a musician was missing.
