  • At the Burbank Airport waiting for my flight to Sacramento and then Portland. #
  • It's amazing how much email can pile up after only 4 days. Hoping I can triage it all before I have to board. #
  • @wwjimd yes, I do. My email would be pretty unmanageable without 'em. Or at least a lot more time consuming. in reply to wwjimd #
  • Glad I won't have to do any more driving in LA in the foreseeable future. It wears me out to have to have to drive so aggressively. #
  • Feels nice to be home, albeit a little strange without @PDXyogini. #
  • Just got some sad, sad news about a friend. #
  • One of the neighbors is setting off fireworks. This is making Zonker growl. #
  • Ugh, just chipped a huge piece off one of my molars (eating popcorn of all things). #
  • Does this count as a dental emergency? #
  • Calling Kaiser advice nurse. What a pain. #
  • Advice nurse says to take ibuprofen if I have pain, eat soft foods only, don't brush that tooth, but ok to rinse with salt water. #
  • Relieved that Kaiser Dental just called and have an opening for me this morning. #
  • Dental appointment went fine. Scheduled appointments to have my first crown done (those things are pricey). #
  • At the Lucky Lab Tap Room working on the volunteer schedule for @osbridge. #
  • Trying to remember how to do laundry since @PDXyogini is out of town and I'm nearly out of clean pants. #
  • "Not Milk?":┬áDairy Petitions the FDA to Block Labels Like "Soy Milk" on Non-Dairy Products http://bit.ly/bknl3h (via @liberationbc) #
  • Browsing Lockeed Martin's Flickr stream http://www.flickr.com/photos/lockheedmartin/ #
  • Do you write software? Are you in Portland? Take our Portland software census! http://wp.me/p4loc-js [Please RT!] (via @spinnerin) #
  • Hey @AmerFlatbread are any of your offerings vegan? #
  • @thirdworld Both of those questions are optional, however. in reply to thirdworld #
  • Grumpy that Backspace is closed for a private event and that I'm deprived of my pre @osbridge meeting snack. #
  • Ok. We are hungry and are at someday lounge. #
  • I realized after signing up for an OregonLive account (so I could leave a comment) that I could have used my OpenID. Argh. #
  • Nice, albeit short, write up on a few local vegan/vegan-friendly restaurants: http://is.gd/c7v4Q #
  • Also, bee pollen and honey are not vegan because they of animal origin (that's why Prasad is not all vegan). #
  • Time to mark your calendars! The 2010 @osbridge schedule is now live! http://cot.ag/9lq3wn #
  • @wchogg Sometimes I try to beat it into submission. other times I just give in and rest. Neither seems like a sure-fire solution. in reply to wchogg #
  • @zenpuffin I forgot to oggle your Archos when I saw you the other evening. How are you liking it? #
  • What do my Linux friends use for password management? I want to ditch OSX, but I'm hooked on @1Password. #
  • @edavis10 I did that for a while, but got paranoid about someone reverse-engineering my algorithm. in reply to edavis10 #
  • @edavis10 Plus, I found that hard to apply to all the server and app logins I manage (e.g linux root, mysql root, etc.) in reply to edavis10 #
  • Attending funerals is never fun, but that was a decent service. I'm grateful that @PDXyogini returned from SF in time to join me. #
  • My trumpets came back from my mom's in California with @PDXyogini. The cats are not amused (by my horrid playing). #
  • I'm sorta proud of myself for remembering how to play a major scale, though. #
  • Is your schedule open? @OSBridge and @OSCON release final schedules for 2010 http://bit.ly/dC5D1D (via @siliconflorist) #
  • Walked across the Morrison bridge from our offices in SE to get lunch from Just Thai. Nom nom. Probably the best idea I've had all week. #
  • A huge +1! @nahbois: screw snow days, can't we have the whole city come to a screeching halt due to the fireball in the sky? #
  • @soycamo There are plenty of volunteer slots open for @osbridge . I'll be releasing the shift sign-up this weekend; keep an eye out for it. in reply to soycamo #
  • Slept in, sketched out wedding invitation ideas with @PDXyogini. Now gathering up bike stuff to ride down to @sweetpeabaking. #
  • Have a language, project, or topic you want to discuss at @osbridge. Schedule a Birds of a Feather session! http://cot.ag/cTnKkT #

  • Twitter API gets 3 billion requests a day. #chirp #
  • Major goal going forward is to give lots more guidance and support to Twitter developers. #chirp #
  • Now @ev is talking about Twitter's philosophy. #chirp #
  • "The open exchange of information has a positive impact on the world." #chirp #
  • 1st priority is Infrastructure: scalability, quality of service and rapid development. #chirp #
  • Scalability projects include FlockDB and moving to Cassandra. #chirp #
  • Recent QoS improvements include reduced error rates, reduced delivery failure and many killed bugs. #chirp #
  • Created a tool called "Murder" that uses bittorrent for rapid deployments. #chirp #
  • 30% of Twitter users are moble. Want to increase to 100%. #chirp #
  • 55 million tweets and 600 million search queries a day. Want to start building in relevance. #chirp #
  • Adding a "places" (points of interest) feature. #chirp #
  • @incanus77 Tentative date for BarCampPortland is 10/22-10/23. http://calagator.org/events/1250458519 in reply to incanus77 #

  • Okay, lunch acquired. #
  • After hearing the words "substantial tax liability" from my accountant, I am every so grateful I no longer work for myself. #
  • four components of @anywhere: sign-in, hovercards, tweetbox, connect #chirp #
  • with @anywhere just a few lines of js can provide frictionless integration of twitter in the context of what users are already doing. #chirp #
  • @zenpuffin Amen! Congrats on the new gig, btw! They're gonna let you go to @osbridge, right? ;) in reply to zenpuffin #
  • Now @harrisj from the NYTimes is "demonstrating' (via mockups) @anywhere features. #chirp #
  • Awesome! dev.twitter.com is up! (via @episod). #chirp #
  • And @anywhere specific info available on http://dev.twitter.com/anywhere. #chirp #
  • On break. Snacks look good, but I don't have the energy to track someone down to find out if they're vegan or not. #chirp #
  • The soundtrack at #chirp has been quite interesting. #
  • @edavis10 Yup, it would be really helpful if conf organizers would label food with important ingredients (animal, common allergens, etc.) in reply to edavis10 #

  • I highly recommend walking to the second part of #chirp It's quite lovely out. #

  • The acoustics in this building are making the ignite talks pretty much inaudible. #chirp #
  • @jennielees oh noes! I had to ask about the vegan signs. One plate of orzo was vegan, and so was one salad. #labelfail indeed in reply to jennielees #

  • @thesethings What's a c-level vegan? in reply to thesethings #
  • @WebWallflower Thoughtful isn't really how I would describe it. Salad and plain pasta does not make a meal. They could do better. in reply to WebWallflower #

  • @heroku where abouts are you at #chirp in reply to heroku #
  • Listening to OAuth talk by @episod and @raffi. #chirp http://twitpic.com/1fu8kl #
  • Glad to hear twitter will be turning off basic auth on the api in June. #chirp #
  • @ggoodale I can help you with that if you would like one of these http://twitpic.com/1ftgvd in reply to ggoodale #
  • Impromptu Artmaking at #chirp http://flic.kr/p/7TKUGH #
  • @adamd to be fair, Apache complains too if your DocRoot doesn't exist. in reply to adamd #
  • @ggoodale I'm hanging out in the middle of the couches. in reply to ggoodale #
  • Broke down and had a red bull so I could pay attention during the application showcase. #chirp #
  • @reidab on no! Glad the collision was low speed and that you're okay. in reply to reidab #
  • So far crowdreel and tap11 look most interesting. #chirp #
  • @geekygirldawn yum! I'm envious. in reply to geekygirldawn #
