@hrheingold Still on first pack of Moo cards. Strange size is a surprise to many.
@luker From the outside: Harvard so doesn’t need bling, that having bling is counter-intuitive. And interesting.
@cmduke Consider this: whether updates break plug-ins. IMHO, WordPress has higher sustainability than Drupal.

Reactivated Twitterfeed to cross-post Delicious to Twitter; I’d turned it off months ago. Another try.
@delicious Is there a service to post Delicious bookmarks to Twitter, with short URL?
@dontgetcaught Great. I’m planning to retweet more. Looking for a Delicious to Twitter service.
@TheCuriousCity Thank you for your recommendations of ABC and Kampung Boy Saturday.
@kylemathews Please share your vision and requirements for Drupal 7 FeeDAPI. My preference is always for extensible solutions.
@hrheingold Can you share the URL for a video playback of Skins?
Drinking water out of a fire hydrant.
@appropedia I’d rather focus on winnowing down those I follow. Not much energy spent on qwitters …
@kylemathews Why not use Aggregator or Delicious module (both released for Drupal 6)?
@mmbc I don’t pay much attention to promised features. Also, if a past feature was implemented poorly once, more skepticism …
@appropedia Where do you get unfollow notification?
@KarlynM I thought doing a Webinar would be like a seminar too, but the void just sucks you right in. Audience needed, even if only cutouts.
@KarlynM Tip to help dissolve the webinar void: paste images/avatars of people you know around your screen.
@mmbc It’s too bad the Linkedin social features (groups, forums) are so rudumentary. My students are not impressed.

@markgr Parent/teacher conference for us yesterday, too. Learning curriculum, even in kindergarten !, is amazing. Sets the stage for future.
@scholarpress That’s great. Thanks for the update.
@appropedia Sometimes, I want sections with restricted access, for management and editorial staging, as well as public face.

@lymburner How about *spolier 10* as a warning?
@robertdenton Same thing happened in Burlington, VT: coop went upscale. I think it’s all about the motivation behind the actions.
Which is more important: the desire to connect, or the desire to increase metrics of connection?One could game the metrics and forget why.
Spent the weekend with a girl who is learning to write sentences and stories for the first time. Joyous learning. *Parenting 9*
@robertdenton Large SUVs outside Whole Foods? *hypocrisy 9*
@rachelwebster Thinking in twit bites - and reading them - is about focusing on what is most important. Otherwise, trivia.

The Twitter curve. 1. Follow. 2. Read. Too many (10-20) borning tweets: unfollow. No Tweets: leave alone. Occasional (5-10 a day): evaluate.
@Reputationist What is the relationship between reputation and identity?
@appropedia Did you look at Deki open source?

I’m a student of layered short-format video storytelling (trailers, teases). Heroes, ep. 11, first 90 seconds. Lyrical, frightening, packed.

Netflix Instant Viewing works fine on Intel Mac. However, even with 3 MB cable modem, quality not close to Hulu.

@mathplourde Pardon the interruption ;) Have you tried Deki wiki?
@kylemathews See Riane Eisler (1987) footnotes on distinctions beween natural and power hierarchies. BTW, a hierarchy on its side is a web.
@kylemathews Hierarchies are natural. My fingers are part of my hand, not other way around. Why replace hierarchies?
@wishtank Oliver Stone’s W was inconsistent: some characters lampooned, others straight. Didn’t have to be directed like a cartoon.

@texpundit He said what?
Obama: “I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help.”
@hollyfowler Happy birthday!
“Immaturity has poisoned our politics for too long.”
“Let us summon a new spirit”
It is easier for the winners to not boo. Not fair to compare.
Obama: “Americans have sent a message to the world: we are, and always will be the *United* States.”

Done with CNN.com “hey-isn’t-the-Internet-cool” drivel. Back to NPR feed.
After the speech, what will Obama do tomorrow? Looking forward to learning about the transition strategy.
CNN Your Voice a weak Twitter clone through broadcast paradigm. Impressive ticker at http://election.twitter…. Appreciate pause button.
Is CNN.com stream different than broadcast stream? (No TV here, only Internet.) Fox News player is similar, except leads with clean coal.
