Another fun day at #iphonedevcamp. By afternoon I found most everyone that wanted to do an iphone app for the hackathon a place on a team.

Getting ready for hackathon at #iphonedevcamp #ipdc. Should be some great apps! One that I’m looking forward to seeing is by a 10 year old.

Saw best Iraq war movie I’ve seen so far, The Hurt Locker, about a bomb disposal team. Very gripping, very dark.

RT @Warner_Brothers Please make a #VeronicaMars Movie.

I don’t retweet often, much less anything pop or pr oriented, but I loved the writing in #VeronicaMars, so I support RT from @IMKristenBell

Tweetscan is supposedly offering a backups of your twitter. Possibly useful #dlmydata

On my way to Seattle. No British Columbia retreat in the cards this year, but it will be nice to spend weekend with the Pinchot’s.

Fri Aug 14 00:54:41 +0000 2009

Inspired by advance copy of @dom’s book #140characters. Favorite quote “Think of every tweet as an epitaph”. Not on this plane please!

I’m very tempted by the Jet Blue special deal. Didn’t get my normal August break, so maybe jet around some new places in September.

Investigated the Jet Blue special deal a bit, and discovered that they no longer fly to Seattle from Oakland to San Francisco. Too bad.

Coaching @GiffordPinchot on social web, in particular twitter, blogging, delicious, and google reader. Good practice for BGI course in fall.

Fri Aug 14 20:25:02 +0000 2009

Twitiquette question from @GiffordPinchot that I don’t have an answer to. When both #bgiedu and @bgiedu are in use, which to use in msgs?

Fri Aug 14 23:45:19 +0000 2009

Replying to @JustinFenwick

The class will not just be intro to social web, but how to create change using it. But I’d be glad to talk more with you.

Sat Aug 15 00:06:13 +0000 2009

Replying to @bella_b

Yes, the class is about changing the world using the social web - having informed students will raise the quality of the dialog.

Open Source Buzz interviewed me about iPhoneDevCamp:

Sat Aug 15 00:59:47 +0000 2009

RT @bajshagirl #bgiedu is for speaking about <object=bgiedu>, @bgiedu is for speaking to <object=bgiedu>. One is direct, one is passive.

Replying to @pkarnig

Your question: “What do I buy most online?”, my answer: “Mac software, iphone apps, gadgets, and kindle books”

Sat Aug 15 19:29:47 +0000 2009

@GiffordPinchot it is a little deeper then you may be ready for, but look at “How Twitter Works in Theory”

Anyone have any experience with extended warranty plan? It is one of few offering outside US, as my mom in Virgin Islands

Sat Aug 15 21:05:47 +0000 2009

I was impressed by Al Franken during Sotomayor hearings - definitely more then just a comedian. He can draw the US too:

I’ve been impressed by the beta of Phone Amego – google voice, iphone, caller id, and mac address book integration.

On Seattle -> Bainbridge Ferry on way to @bgiedu for conversations re: my upcoming course ‘using the social web for social change’.

Mon Aug 17 20:58:40 +0000 2009

I was considering diigo over delicious as recommended social boomarking site for @bgiedu, but lack of full support for safari is of concern.

I’m still working on course plan & syllabus for #bgiedu class. It will also be open courseware.

re: buried in email: gmail’s filters are your friend. Remember @cshirky “It’s not information overload. It’s filter failure.”

Tue Aug 18 07:25:28 +0000 2009

I sometimes hesitate telling about it as it will not work if overused, but is fabulous for finding a comfortable seat in coach.

Tue Aug 18 19:06:41 +0000 2009

Returning to home to Berkeley today. Then on to finish @bgiudu course plan & syllabus after running some ideas by @GiffordPinchot & Libba.
