If you listen closely you hear....nothing..

Something about this photo reflects how I feel. I can't explain that, it's just that this pic inspired me to write. Why, you ask? I don't know, my answer.

Have several things going on all at once, and a need to be everywhere at the same time. Ever get that way? Oh, today is day ten on the set of the movie I'm not in, I was reminded of this when the AD mistakenly sent me a call sheet.

What this tells you is, I'm still amped about this situation, however, out of respect to the person that got me the part, I've promised to keep quiet until principle photography wraps.

Stay tuned.

Just as I was going to boycott #FF, Dave Winer comes up with a great idea....

Now, I realize I could fill here, but my point is made....

Adjust Your Expectations Accordingly....

I'm Outraged!!!

Just about the time I was going to transmogrify from Twitter to FriendFeed, stuff like this happens. For those that haven't clicked the link, or came back after you did, here's the thing: This is so terribly a bad idea, and here's why....

It should've happened the other way around.

Read that again, I'll wait.

Now I'm pretty sure that Friendfeed wouldn't have been able to make this purchase anytime soon, however, according to the article linked above:
All of Mountain View-based FriendFeed's 12 employees will join Facebook; FriendFeed's four founders will hold senior roles on Facebook's engineering and product teams, the company said.

That's right, the people that have created the superior technology, now work for the company they were attempting to wipe off the map.

Adjust your expectations accordingly....

But not before you realize this comes on the heels of the news that has shutdown. I'd call coincidence, but it's more likely a psychic phenomenon, as well as today's new definition of irony....

My social networkImage by luc legay via Flickr

Yeah, it's a hashtag. Call out the hashtag mafia. Wait, they don't exist :) Ok, here's the deal:

By now I'm sure most of you if not all of you have heard of the DOS attack on Twitter, and other social networks. Apparently, Russia launched the attack, to silence one guy. Impressive, that one country would enlist all its resources to silence one guy, but that's not what this is about. The two hours plus that Twitter was down, was coincidentally, the two hours that I was planning to tweet. Hence, the aforementioned hashtag.

But that's not what this is about either.

No, I'm here to talk about the fact that the supposed fix that the fine folks at Twitter came up with, is to reset our passwords. Ok, that's fine, but as a result of that, combined possibly with the fact that I take my Twitter email through the 3rd party app/site, I don't get my password reset, as it doesn't recognize that I've performed the necessary steps. So, thinking quickly, I attempt to reset my password manually, however, Twitter has ground to a slow crawl, as a result of the previously mentioned DOS attack.

I love irony, because it's so ironic. And it looks like I can still tweet, just not from the site itself, or MashDeck, as it doesn't recognize my password. Apparently, any app I authorized with oAuth works fine. So, I'm going to be tweeting less for a few days until this situation clears up, from other sites. Because you should receive this in your public timeline. I'm going to use my free time, to reflect on several things....
