It’s not even mid-month, and I’ve been a total techno-geek. To wit:
1. I hooked up my new video iPod to my TV so that I can play video podcasts on the big screen, without using a proprietary Apple cable.
2. I installed Blackberry Messenger so that I can IM on my Blackberry. As if regular email, PIN messaging and SMS aren’t enough.
3. I signed up to go to MashupCamp in California next month.
4. My boyfriend found out that I’m going to California next month because he read it on my blog.
5. I uttered the phrase “sometimes I think about going back to coding”.
6. I installed the Firefox X-Ray extension so that I can see the html tags on a page without viewing the source code.
7. I downloaded ubuntu.
8. I moved almost all of my bookmarks into del.icio.us.
9. I loaded Google Local for Mobile onto my Blackberry and I can’t stop grinning and showing people the map directions. Then, within two hours, I convinced three other people to load it on theirs, and gave two of them an in-person tutorial.
10. I’ve spent the last hour browsing open source shopping cart solutions that I can customize for my wine-tasting club.
Maybe it’s something in the air for 2006?
