I'm alive. [Sep. 9th, 2008|10:58 pm]

Apparently I haven't posted in awhile.

Let me remedy that.

Let's see.... where to resume? Last I pseudo-posted via LoudTwitter (now disabled, you're welcome), I was in Portland for my class reunion. So let's resume there, in traditional, lazy, bulleted-list fashion:
  • went to Portland for class reunion. saw some people. didn't see some people. remembered some people. didn't remember one person. had thought about some people. hadn't thought about a lot of people. really glad to see a few people. etc. not sure this is too unusual from anybody's 10 year class reunion.
  • went to Burning Man again. went kinda solo this year, riding up with random strangers (no longer strangers) and camping with a different set of random strangers (no longer strangers). some good dust storms.
  • i'm totally behind on life/errands/laundy/house/taxes/blahblahblah. still no hot tub despite most the planning/prep done, mostly because i'm too damn busy and never at home to arrange logistics. i guess i work a lot. can't complain, though... work is fun.
  • going to Istanbul & Moscow starting next wednesday (17th). should be fun too. working from Moscow office for awhile after Istanbul to justify otherwise-ridiculous flying time to Istanbul. stupid air travel. needs to be faster and/or easier to book.
  • Seattle couple days after that? tbd.
Maybe I should just post to Dopplr and not LiveJournal. This post is devoid of content.

But it's always good to hear from you.

And, Istanbul & Moscow? Cool! (Except the booking hassle.)
Have a nice trip there. :-)

By all means, keep LoudTwitter off.

Having said that, though. I liked it. I'm not interested enough to see multiple twitter comments (within a day) in my feedreader, but am interested enough to see a daily aggregate somewhere.

I wonder if twitter offers that feed too? I should look!

That's the philosophy behind my lifestream's feed. My lifestream still constantly aggregates everything, but the feed only pushes an entry once-a-week. The weekly summary is more interesting and less noisy.

I would be interested to see what the Russians have to say about Americans in light of the stuff happening in Georgia.

I dunno, this post had more content than effing LoudTwitter. Thank you for disabling that.
