  • @cspenn Good luck! See you on the other side! #
  • @RoseFarina Hi Rose! Great to see you here! 🙂 #
  • @Aithene Great pic! Very cool look with the shades on. 🙂 #
  • @SinTrenton Missed your tweets the other day, yes I always remember when I meet handsome sailors on the mainland. 🙂 #
  • @hmason Good lord, what is this, the 50s? Use pink! Tell em it will get em a good husband! #
  • @joikoi Thanks for the link to the audio with Nick n Prok re: VW conf: http://tinyurl.com/2fwgyf #
  • And @malburns with an honorable mention in the audio! #
  • Not to spam, but this really is a must-listen-to podcast about VWs from Metaversed and Prok: http://tinyurl.com/2fwgyf #
  • Good heavens, apologies to @jaffejuice and @gideontv for showing up as a rhino, didn’t realize it was a live event! #
  • @jeffejuice @gideontv – I just glanced at the twitter screen, saw the call, and popped over. Woops! #
  • I saw @jaffejuice call to "show the power of twitter" asking folks to pop over to crayonville out of the corner of my eye. #
  • And I was in the middle of checking out my friend Ryan Snook’s new White Rhino avatar (he builds for Grendel’s avs) #
  • So I thought I’d just pop over real quick, without realizing they were doing a live event! Talk about the bull in the china shop! #
  • The lesson is, be careful of the power of twitter for live events, you might have a big rhino show up to your live SL event. =) #
  • Wolfing down some crackers and cheese for lunch before Podcasting presentation, voting for pres: http://democracyforamerica.com/pulsepoll #
  • @donovanpreston Well, nothing, except it was an exceptionally LARGE white rhino. 🙂 #
  • @evanhamilton Wha?! Did I miss a sign up? I assume this is for Flock – I want in! I’m a fan! #

  • Listening to http://tinyurl.com/2a27bh thanks to @cc_chapman #
  • Trying to schedule a presentation with a friend in Korea, the time difference is confusing me. #
  • Irritated with PPT, irritated with Exchange, irritated with Photoshop, mad at myself for saying yes too much. #
  • WHO in their right mind schedules 7 presentations in one week? WHat was wrong with me? Pardon while I freak out. #
  • Also, all these grant deadlines are looming large. And email is killing me. aieee. Ranting twittervent over. #
  • @spin No way it took this long for sellout, maybe we’re just hearing about it. #
  • @seanpercival Visited landmark spot in SL today, looks good! Mustv redone it since I was there last. #
  • Holy #$^%, Philip Rosedale responded to Scalar’s sculptie msg on sl-dev. Go Scalar! #

  • Chilbo has graffiti all over, some of it is very good indeed, but slightly annoyed at the tag on the town hall podium. #
  • Pondering my SL presentation to the President and Cabinet on Friday. 15 mins isnt much time to explain. #

  • @kosso So excited about Twitter integration to BlogHUD! Thx!@ #
  • Dr. Huxtable is on TV! (thanks for reminder @newmediajim) #
  • @newmediajim Well no, but their comments about children with no fathers resonates across ethnicities. #
  • @newmediajim This is maybe the best thing I’ve seen on TV all week. #
  • @newmdiajim Nice, talking about media’s effect on these issues, too. #
  • @newmediajim The revolution is in their apartment. Wow. #

  • @Pistachio I’ve been using http://twittermail.com for a while now, can’t live without it! #
  • @GwenethLlewelyn At the Diana Gabaldon event too, sound is ok for me with the volume up. #
  • @GwenethLlewelyn She has sort of a scratchy voice, which doesn’t help. #
  • "I don’t conjure up an ideal reader in my head and write for them, I write for myself." Good quote. #
