  • Retweeting @jasonglaspey: Going to present a project idea at the #PDXCritique… want details? http://is.gd/dOX #
  • @peat i feel a muxtape coming on.. but they’ve got too many database connections atm :( #
  • @jasonglaspey is very mysterious. #
  • @TiEsQue you are right! I still think we need the business/tech speed dating. #PDXCritique is a good intersection point, though. #
  • @kcomandich i’m jealous! #
  • @markwkm will post when it is available! and you can only listen, not see ;) #
  • @pagecrusher that’s hankin’s! i love that hardware store. #
  • @karolcooks glad to hear it. #
  • @aurynn awwww. it’ll pass. #
  • @xolotl will also help w/ GD’s site for beer! (but i’m sure you’ve got it covered) #

  • @gorthx probably both — but I know that PDX.pm is in need of speakers.. #
  • @muckp love it! will incorporate some of those and post when i’m done. #
  • sad and in tears. my dad’s letter to the editor about a snare that killed his dog http://snurl.com/27hb9 #
  • @mjollnir where are you going?! #
  • @muckp my tags: http://tinyurl.com/597krc still needs some refinement, but much better. #
  • @radiogretchen thx. #

  • @turoczy here’s pdx critique: http://pdxcritique.tingeydesign.com/ #
  • @betsywhim def – haven’t met janet yet, but stacey and ben are BFF #
  • riding to work… #
  • @brampitoyo pdx critique is looking for creatives to participate! idea came from PNCA experience, wanting more formal feedback from peers #
  • @mattking awesome! i was supposed to go, but got sick. been talking to stacey a lot about it. #
  • @jabancroft thanks so much. sorry your proxy is sucking! #
  • @notbenh i’m at work now. but can someone get me twitter integration with my bike? #

  • @brampitoyo love the fax! esp the brother 2820s we have. fast, async, hast lasted 2 yrs no probs. #
  • @ebeckman: i like seeing @ replies from people i don’t follow – lets me reduce the overall # of people that i *do* follow. #
  • @radiogretchen i don’t even try :) but, wicking fabrics (read: not cotton) help a lot. #
  • @radiogretchen also, you can get padded shorts that are fabric – wearable under normal pants, so that you don’t have to spandex-out #
  • @expatrick eiw! #
  • @expatrick true dat! no face, or user-interface is safe with skitch around. #
  • @ahockley xo sidedoor, although service lately has been less than stellar. lemme know if it ihas improved! #
  • @radiogretchen have same problem. no real good solution. #
  • @verso i have a janome – don’t know the specific # but can send later. rec: get a good machine, otherwise you’ll be miserable. craigslist! #
