hi [Sep. 5th, 2002|09:31 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Back from Vegas. Good stuff. Will upload pictures to PicPix.com as soon as I unpack and find my camera. I used iPhoto in Jaguar while I was gone and have decided I'll make the command-line Mac client integrate with that.... just a forest of directories & symlinks.

I hear it turned cold in Portland while I was gone, and my thermometer outside seems to agree.... 54 instead of 75 or so. Brrrrrr. It was 100+ in Vegas... actually pretty nice, except the last day when it was 110.

Look, New York Times:
http://www.nytimes.com/2002/09/05/technology/circuits/05BLOG.html

Funny that of the 180 pictures they took of me, the NYT photo editor used one of the two pictures that were goofs. See the red light in the background?

I think I'm gonna head off to the breakfast buffet kitchen now.... get me a burrito microwaved for 1:40.

Yay! Nice article. And welcome back! I couldn't figure out why you hadn't been online until I remembered you were in Vegas.

Congratultions. The article was really good in that the author seemed to get the point. I expect you'll be guest lecturing at NYU sometime soon?

Never been to New York. I'd lecture for a free flight. :P

Nice article.... tho I'm still trying to figure out which one better describes you.. a narsastic rambler or an emotional train wreck ;-)

So where are these predominantly female livejournal users?? ;)

Any suggestions for Kenji and I in Vegas?

It's a good picture. Maybe they chose it cos the red light makes it look all futuristic like "we're trying to be cool like Wired." Great article too, one of my favorite quotes:

For many young people, keeping a Web journal is less about soul-searching than about keeping in touch with a circle of friends and perhaps expanding it.

*nail on head* They draw a great distinction between LJ and "blogs" that I've been waiting to see in the mainstream press for a long time.

Nice, man. You have such a futuristic/community theatre-esque lighting arrangement there in your computer room.

Doesn't it make you feel weird that someone from NYU is studying LJ and probably studying you for creating it...that would freak me out!

Dude, you'd better grab the user name misterfitzpatrick before someone else does.

(By the way, which casino owns LJ now?)

Heh.

Um, hello!

You certainly don't know me but coollibrarian found the article in the Times and pointed it out and then I figured since you've started this whole thing you may have chosen your name for your user name and here ya are!

All this to say "Thanks for LJ" :)

Right "Fucking" On!

Congrats on the article, that kicks ass.

...and the first thing I noticed when the page loaded was "what the fuck is that red light doing under his desk" :-)

Get PicPix up and running flawlessly by the first of October. I've got a bunch of fire pics I need to post. Yeah
