Got a speeding ticket today. My 6 y.o. says: “I’ve never seen a policeman with a mustache. His mustache wasn’t that creepy though.”
Making burgers. The neighbor kids are incredulous about wasabi mayo and horseradish mustard. (Viva Trader Joes!)
My next door neighbor, grandmother to Green Day Drummer John Kiffmeyer (http://is.gd/l8vG), passed away last night. Bye Grandma Kay.
Netflix set to offer streaming only plans. Death of physical media, anyone? http://is.gd/kTnv
A pleasant (but intrusive) woman on Bart just invited herself to critique a draft I’m working on. Need a low voltage tazer or stink spray.
Not loving Media Temple as much as I used to. Regular down time, email issues. Long wait times for support. (At least support is US based.)
Broadcom to bring Chumby widgets to TV. TV deserves more than widgets but it’s a good start. http://bnsn.com/T0c/
#SXSW wants perpetual worldwide royalty free license for trademark, trade secret, right of personality for speakers. (FaceBook legal team?)
OH: Got anything I could throw through a window?

BusinessWeek podcast says companies who cut customer service last will win. They’re trashing USAir who charges $2 for in flight water.
OH: On a customer support call. “We can complete the updation of your information.” Did he just say updation? Yes. Yes, he did.
RT @benson: What’s your Xbox360 gamertag? - Mine’s FL4KJ4CK (but you already knew that).
Google Docs Spreadsheet doesn’t let you create rules for dates in the future? Grr.
Vimeo is down. Is it the new Twitter?
Adobe and Intel announced initiative to bring Flash to TV at the chip level. http://is.gd/kzfe
Following the @Boxee @Huludotcom upset? Check out Plex. Like Boxee it’s based on Xbox Media Center (XBMC) and has Hulu. http://is.gd/kxx4
And Plex has a tastier user interface. Plex app (Mac only) is here: http://is.gd/kyVy #television #UI
When your state is in a 3 year drought it’s foolish to complain about the rain.

Hulu pulls out of @Boxee. Boo.
OH at @Punchcut. “We can assumption the hell out of it.”
Twitter search is a great way to get the pulse on a company in near real-time. I expect Twitter will create a Twitter Brand Index.)

Great. My wife enrolled my 6 y.o. in karate. Super cute now but I’m screwed when he’s 14.
On this day in 2006: Dwell.com strategy meeting. FontShop catalog design review. Feels like a generation ago.
Jealous of @benson. He baked his own URL shortening service for ultimate geek cred. http://www.bnsn.com/url.php
Imagining the pitch for Watchmen… Flock of Seagulls man, Speed-o man and 4 other random heroes. Unforgettable!
I’m pissed that my competitors have Wikipedia pages, yet my entries get flagged/deleted as “commercial”. Wikipedia “editors” suck.
(Pissed as in angry. Not drunk. Drunk people editing Wikipedia is a different problem.)
Tweetree.com is going to change everything. Okay, just change the way Twitter gets consumed.
Anybody playing Mirror’s Edge? Game concept looks amazing. Does the gameplay hold up?
I want the replay of Bruce struggling to get on top of that piano.
Okay, SoBe just lost all credibility. Just because you can (make your ad 3D with men in tights and animated geckos) doesn’t mean you should.
Last Wednesday was my Twitterversary. 1000 Tweets per year.
