Oddly depressed by Google Wave. I had many of those features in SynchroEdit.com over two-and-a-half years ago with synchroedit.com.
Google Wave & SynchroEdit.com – as I’ve often found before, I’m too ahead of the curve.
Staying in SF with my sweetie overnight so that I can arrive early for WWDC keynote tomorrow.
I’m at the MacIndie Party in Jillians while my sweetie hunts down an organic or grass-fed beef burger.
Arrived early at Moscone for #WWDC but line is so long I’m already way behind the center. Line is already blocks long.
#wwdc line finally moved inside.

I already use my express card slot on Mac Book Pro with an express card that has a SD Slot, but I’ll still miss ability to have cards. #WWDC
My favorite express card for MacBook Pro was the integrated Sprint cellular modem. I really dislike the USB dongles on portables. #WWDC
I’m glad to see firewire 800 on the 12” mac. #wwdc
Wonder if you can put a cell modem on an SD card? That would be cool. #WWDC
Quick search for SD cell modem cards finds none. Some SD wifi capable cards, but no SD cards. #WWDC
Wikipedia says cellular SD are possible as part of the SDIO standard, but there are no implementations. http://tinyurl.com/yygzze #WWDC
It looks like an 32GB iPhone 3GS will cost me $499 from AT&T AND will require another two year commitment AND an $18 upgrade fee.
The AT&T web page may call me a “valued customer” but a $200 premium and requiring me to renew contract again doesn’t make me feel that way.
I’m not going to be able to attend the #WWDC Snow Leopard Server session. Can someone D me with any apache/ SQL performance details?
#WWDC is my 2nd conf using Dell Mini 9 as a Mac OSX 10.5.7 hackintosh, but more people notice it here ;-) http://twitpic.com/6zj5e
Dell Mini 9 hackintosh is great with TweetDeck w/narrow column setting. Great for conferences like #wwdc http://twitpic.com/6zjeu
Does anyone know if the peer-to-peer iPhone GameKit API can be implemented with a Mac as a peer? #WWDC
Replying to @schwa
There are a few werewolf iphone apps, but I don’t know if any can be used for local games. I can bring some werewolf cards tomorrow.
If anyone interested in dinner before #WWDC Design Awards tonight, D me.
I don’t like when after some #WWDC sessions they don’t take questions, instead take questions on side. I find the public Q&A very valuable.
I’ve got a great idea for player discovery for when you want to play a game locally (like werewolf) but don’t want to leave iPhone app open.
This player discovery technique would use combination of iPhone notification srvc +peer-to-peer game kit +anonymous ephemeral location API
If you are interested in talking more about the player discovery problem on the iPhone at #WWDC, say over lunch or dinner, let me know.
Lots of cheers from crowd in audience during #WWDC In-App Purchase session on the suggestion that Apple allow purchases from free apps.
Policy for In-App Purchases: No trading of any virtual item purchased in-app to any other person i.e. no intermediate currencies. #WWDC

you can’t sell an RPG item, say a axe, if that axe can be given to another user. If you did you’d be violating app store rules

I don’t like to retweet unless it is really obscure user. Prefer to add value w/content, opinion, or judgement in any tweet I post

however, I do recognize my role as a weak link connection between social networks like iPhone, games, media, etc. so will RT some.

I’m off to the Twitter HQ for the #WWDC Mac / iPhone Twitter API meetup: http://tr.im/o5T2
Lots of interesting talk regarding Twitter & if we can centralize iPhone’s Push Notification Services at Twitter HQ.
Great talk at Twitter HQ regarding exposing geoloc in API. In progress, but currently held up in legal.
Interesting versioning issues with Twitter API. Could be future will be to point to specific URLs domains that spec specific version.
It looks like if you have an app that gets data from API services, like Twitter Trends, you’ll have to mark it in iPhone App Store as 17+
If you want your client to allow users to report Twitter spam, you can report them with a direct message to @spam with the @ name of spammer

The only time I’ve ever had my car broken into was s of market at night. Lots of smash & grab. If they see anything in car->smash!
If you see me at #WWDC ask me about player discovery, euro-syle board & card games on iPhone, or iPhone apps that can be marketed on RPGnet
A lot of cool stuff about new compass in iPhone 3GS. It is very smart. #WWDC
For instance, compass detects if you are experiencing mag interference, and then will ask you to wave iPhone in figure 8, and it will fix
Cool, iPhone 3GS will put heading into photo exif. For instance, this can allow automatic photo stitching of panoramic photos. #WWDC
RT @joehewitt iPhone cases R lk a bra on yr Porsche. Please dont hide the wonderful work of Apple’s industrial designers w/ cheap plastic.
I concur with @joehewitt - my iPhone 3G is almost a year old w/o case, and carried often in pocket w/keys, yet no scratches on glass.
Looking for ride to an East Bay BART station (preferably North Berkeley BART, but MacArthur works) after #WWDC party tonight.

Who is going to #WWDC Friday? Schedule looks a little light for me. If you are interested in meeting, let me know soon or I might skip.
Registration for @iPhoneDevCamp is $50 & now open: http://iphonedevcamp.org – it will be held July 31 - August 2nd at Yahoo! in Sunnyvale.
Didn’t set my alarm this morning, woke at 11:40. Don’t think I’ll drop in at #WWDC for last two sessions. DM if you want to meet today.
Well, as I expected, I didn’t get on in time to get ChristopherA on Facebook. I’m ChristopherA almost everywhere else. #FUFacebook
At http://scarycow.com round 9 where people are pitching little indie short films and evangelizing people to volunteer on their film teams.
Of course some of the pitches @scarycow are quite spare and amateur, but some quite interesting. Genres include drama, horror, comedy, etc.
Replying to @mariosundar
Fellow @scarycow twitterer – find me after pitches?
I had a good time at the @scarycow short film pitch mtg. Reminds me of first night of @iPhoneDevCamp – lots of passionate creative people.
The AT&T store in El Cerrito has all models, no lines, and about a 15 minute wait inside. http://twitpic.com/7tbtv
In the end got the discounted price on iPhone 3GS due to last minutes changes in AT&T policy. No line at AT&T store, activation was fast.
Now that I’ve restored both iPhone 3GS (Yeah! It worked!), I’m doing secure erase of both M’s and my old iPhones. Takes about an hour each!
My experience with iPhone 3GS video is mixed. I did get a fun impromptu “unicyle tango” video, but most others didn’t focus in low light.
Serious data loss bug in iPhone with iPhoto. If you upload to Youtube, and it fails to upload, and you sync to iPhoto, poof! Lose both.
Moderated a panel at an iPhone developer user group in Fremont tonight. I thought it went well even though one of the speakers was a no show
Tonight I’m going to a Hang Gathering Concert with 7 hang drum performers at Yoga Mandala in Berkeley http://bit.ly/6C9a0 Tomorrow I perform
I will be performing tonight two duets with my Hang drum teacher http://bit.ly/6C9a0 – one with a D minor Hang, the other with the new Halo
My “student recital” at the Berkeley Gathering Concert went well last night. A few flubs from my perspective, but nobody noticed.
I’m in Seattle, WA today before a faculty retreat for Bainbridge Graduate Institute tomorrow. bgiedu.org offers a green & sustainable MBA.

No, I’m not technically a member of BGI faculty, but I’m a faculty advisor and maybe executive in residence next year. TBD.
