  • Colbert and Michael Moore last night: http://bit.ly/ifHwcq Very funny and also incl much of MM's serious concerns. Great stuff #
  • Colbert: All murals need 2b balanced LD's Last Supper only tells Jesus' side of the story. Should've added a Roman Soldier w/ sack of nails #
  • Sorry for the 3-part tweet. I'm going to write a blog post, which is what I USUALLY do in such circumstances. #
  • @dlature Cont. About the economy, & he needed the very best minds to help get the country out of this mess. Again, hard 2 go along with #
  • @dlature Cont. I find that hard to swallow. I am told the reason he had no choice was that they were also the people who know the most #
  • I've had a friend tell me that Obama had no choice about hiring so many of the ppl so heavily involved in opposing regulation of derivatives #
  • @iambrianyoung Just a bit of info about NBC Nightly News via Jon Stewart on Daily Show last night at about 4:00 of http://bit.ly/g5Ld9O #
  • Funny (not really) how NBC News did NOT mention the widely read story that GE pays 0 corporate taxes #
  • J Stewart: The Supreme Court may have ruled that corporations R people, but what it may not have realized, is that those people R a'holes" #
  • And the hits just keep on comin'. More anti-Muslim nonsense in Murfreesboro http://bit.ly/dYMB2f and CNN http://wapo.st/gRexbX #
  • Speaking of movies, want to stress how important a movie "Inside Job" could be if enough Americans saw it & got mad. Get it & watch! #
  • Looking forward to checking out "Fair Game" when it arrives at Redbox tomorrow. Story of Joe Wilson & Valerie Plame vs Bush admin #
  • I follow many ppl who tweet NYT frequently & since they tend 2 tweet stuff N which I'm interested, I'm good4 as much NYT as I'm likely 2need #
  • My point N prev tweet: learnings that "enemy" are "targets" that "brave warriors" dispose of is interpretation failure 2 C "the full story" #
  • Disgusted at photos of US soldiers posing with Afghan corpses. Hey anti-Muslims, What Holy Book do these U.S. guys read? Let me guess. #
  • @digital_boy 2. I would have to pay about $50 a month to get the level of service where I can even choose HBO #
  • if you're talking about HBO GO, that doesn't address what I'm talking about. I CANT subscribe. 1: I'm on Comcast, not FioS or UVerse #
  • @digital_boy yeah, I see wikipedia article on HBO. What about it? #
  • @digital_boy what am I supposed to see? #
  • Hey @HBO. You could probably get a load of money from people who just want RealTime w/ Bill Maher. $10-15 a month for 4 episode downloads. #
  • Ed Rendell, Does "telling the truth" incl' telling truth ab't Wall St.? Quit talking generalities & get specific. http://bit.ly/fu9oKv #
  • Shaking head atdefense those N power give 2 their refusal 2 leave office: "It would start a civil war". You mean YOU would turn it violent #
  • watching Democracy Now recording of 7am show today at http://bit.ly/geyfln on Syria and more #
  • RT @MMFlint: we need our own pro-democracy movem't here in the U.S. It started N Madison-lets make it happen everywhere.// absolutely #
  • I'll be doing a lot less basketball tweeting this week since there are only 3 games left, & they're all next Saturday & the following Mon. #
  • This yr #1 OR 2 in NCAA tourney, & one 3 and one 4 are left.So 1st final4 with no #1 OR #2 making it. 3-4-8-11 are … http://r2.ly/arwu #
  • @digital_boy maybe 2 in 5.9 million is close to the mathematical odds of picking the 4 totally at random. Have no idea. #
  • @digital_boy 2 people that threw dice or looked at tea leaves. No basketball knowledge gets that right side correct #
  • @sandalstraps Cats! Yeah! Now to avenge this year's worst loss (17) and get to the "wildcard" game winner #
  • Watching NCAA after game coverage on ncaa.com #
  • Cats! Final 4! Finally again after 13 years! After the loss at Arkansas, this would not have been my expectation. Thy found the "clutch" #
  • Only 3rd time that no number1 seed made it to Final4. 2006 (UCLA-2 Fla*-3 LSU-4 GMason-11) 1980 (Lou*-2 Iowa-5 PUR-… http://r2.ly/8pxi #
  • @dlature But I'm thrilled it happened. Now the butterflies start as Ky. attempts to get there. #
  • Anybody who picked VCU vs Butler as a final four matchup in their brackets probably knows absolutely nothing about college basketball #
  • Boy, VCU luckliy got that time out. That was a tie-up. It's VCU's game to blow now. #
  • Within 5 minutes, lead not only cut by at least 4, it's DOWN TO FOUR! Yikes! I was afraid of this #
  • @sandalstraps OK. Here's to VCU holding on. Hope they do. I don't feel "safe" yet #
  • @sandalstraps kind of why I said the start of the 2nd hlaf will be telling #
  • @sandalstraps yeah. you could say that #
  • watching Steve Martin, comedian, talking to @leolaporte on live.twit.tv #
  • @sandalstraps The way the second hlaf begins will make things much more "forseeable". We're talking needing 4 point gain every 5 minutes #
  • 14 points can become 8 at the blink of an eye. 8 becomes 4. PLENTY of time. PLENTY. But go VCU #
  • I sure hope they DON'T come back, though. #
  • I can't believe ppl R already figuring Kansas has lost. 14pts down at half. Hav'g seen teams come back from 10 down under 2 minutes, Nah. #
  • @sandalstraps glad I didn't see it #
  • @digital_boy Consider NetFlix, Amazon, iTunes, purchaseable shows. Making tons of money in early stages. NO HBO. MIssing out. #
  • @digital_boy They can continue to make their millions through OLD channels, but they'd better have an eye to the future business models. #
  • @digital_boy They miss massive income opportunities via online options. There's already movements demanding "de-packaging" of cable content #
  • @digital_boy Besides, Did I not say that I myself would pay for the content they should be putting online? They have great content. #
  • @digital_boy Sorry, but they're doing well is an irrelevant argument about the future (BTW, that is already upon us.) #
  • @digital_boy Yeah, lots o'old schoolTV still makes a bunch of money. Derivatives crashed the economy after it made billions. HBO is behind. #
  • @digital_boy Exactly the kind o' thinking("OLD thinking")that renders them clueless. They th'k it's "real world" . It'll endup hurting them. #
  • Hate it when I publish "very rough" blog post draft & accident'ly hit Publish inst' of "Post draft to blog". I have 2 delete autoTweet too #
  • Hey @HBO, it 's over $50/mo. 2 get level of service where I can even have the option 2 subscibe 2 HBO. PLZ sell RealTime VIDEO episodes!!! #
  • Hey @HBO: 4 the umpteenth time, I would BUY (as in give money) 2 download or stream RealTime with Bill Maher. It's called "monetization" #
  • Everytime I come across a video that HBO has "removed for copyright violations", I am reminded of how @HBO doesn't get the Web #BillMaher #
  • @sandalstraps Not Dicky V , though. he gives them a good shot. Anything is possible if the number one #1 goes down (and often does) #
  • I'm live on Ustream! Check out my show: http://ustre.am/aH85 3:52 PM CDT #
  • @FedexAl al, thanks for the check up on status…package arrived today…all is OK. Didnt initially expect it till today anyway #
  • Boy could I ever use that condenser mic that Fedex said was out for delivery YESTERDAY in this "un-mic'd" speaker on data at pcn11 #
  • @sandalstraps I was right there with ya on most of your comments…just too stressed to tweet. End of 1st I tweeted some disgust re: refs #
  • Wow. What a finish Ky-Ohio State #
  • Most obvious lack of whistles vs Ohio State was no call on obvious bump on shooter as he went up outside 3 pt line, Always called, #fail #
  • The lack of whistles vs Ohio State was likely the source of Harrelson's fire in his throwing the ball off OhioSt player #
  • Fouls called on Ky 11, on Ohio State, 4. Watching the game, the ones doing the bumping are wearing Red &white. #
  • The recording of the #JRC (JOurnal Register) open advisory mtg yesterday at http://bit.ly/f2Q1Sa incl. @jeffjarvis @jayrosen_nyu @emilybell #
  • where is that Fedex truck with my Microphone on it? Usually isn't this late in the day. #
  • @digital_boy of course. They have their PR. They have to have a response. Credibility? Not so much. #
  • GillmorGang at http://bit.ly/aNfKZC talking about the new App "Color" which is a kind of Social Camera app #
  • Gillmor Gang any sec now at http://bit.ly/aNfKZC with @stevegillmor @kevinmarks @dannysullivan @jtaschek #
  • Gillmor Gang? Bueller? Bueller? #
  • RT @tpmmedia: Protest Erupts As NH GOPers adv Anti-Union Bills http://tpm.ly/dLi2Jp ^@brianbeutler // That's it. Spread the love:) & protest #
  • ahhhh! It's 2:45 and I've seen nothing indicating an upcoming live recording of The Gillmor Gang. I'll be annoyed if there isn't one #
  • I have http://bit.ly/aNfKZC cued up to see when the first post to the FF live chat happens for The #GillmorGang #
  • anticipating some GGG (Gillmor Gang Goodness) in about 30 minutes via @stevegillmor @scobleizer @jtaschek @kevinmarks and co.? #
  • I smell an important business issue for church organizations in Terry Heaton's "Data is new media's heartbeat" post http://r2.ly/pvkv #
  • How does Saleh figure Syrian people will go for "I'll step down after elections"? Seems like someone just tried that #jan25 #
  • @digital_boy But that opens up the possibility that twitter becomes less "microblog" and more like blogging. It's debatable. #
  • @dlature "PT" would make it possible to tweet a continuous stream of thought with an auto link (as with "in reply to") to the prev tweet #
  • @digital_boy There should be a thing like "RT" , maybe "PT" that accomplishes the deed. #
  • @digital_boy and it makes me look schizophrenic (ie "talking to myself") #
  • @digital_boy that's precisely what I have been doing that I don't particularly like, and it wastes precious twitter space by repeating my @ #
  • Holy Cow! 12:37pm? Where did the morning go? Looking forward to testing out my new condensor mic at #pcn11 tomorrow. #
  • I want to see a mechanism in Twitter where I can refer to prev tweets and have Twitter show a link to the "previous" #
  • I love this: "vague but exciting." (see my prev tweets) http://r2.ly/bwn9 #
  • Prev tweet on Tim Berners Lee's "proposal" (it came to be known as "The World Wide Web") post by @shelisrael at http://bit.ly/iczVfg #
  • In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee's supv approved his "internet experiment," writing on cover that it was “vague but exciting.” http://bit.ly/iczVfg #
  • @MonktonSam I would think so, since Redbox has it. Yep. It is, on BluRay and DVD #
  • Hey Nashville tweeps: I'd love to do a "Video Roundtable" sit-down re: the movie #InsideJob #insideJobTheMovie andput it up on Youtube. #
  • Yup, did a Twitter search on "insidejob", and there are people saying basically the same thing: MUST SEE #
  • Oh yeah, I should be using #InsideJobMovie hashtag. There may well be others voluntarily stressing it's importance #
  • I am quite serious re: "Inside Job" (2 belabor my point) VERY impor't coverage ALL Americans MUST see if you wish 2 underst'd econm'c crisis #
  • Stoked 2 see that Condensor Mic I ordered yest'day is out 4 delivery today (saw/heard it on a live stream yesterday & its pickup is amazing #
  • Charles Furguson should think about letting PBS run "inside Job" so that as many Amereicans as possible can see it see http://bit.ly/gqVmST #
  • Your local RedBox may have INSIDE JOB available to rent for $1. it is a priceless call to ask our leaders to expose this "ponzi scheme" #
  • This kind of article needs to become a series (new corp every week): G.E.'s Strategies Let It Avoid Taxes Altogether. http://r2.ly/r8aq #
  • Believe me folks, watch "Insde Job". It's well done & thouroughly infuriating as 2 the hubris and selfishness that drove our economic woes #
  • The movie "Inside Job" should be a rallying wakeup call 2 Americans 2 build on already momentous labor rallies & demand accountability #
  • @digital_boy I hope it becomes a series (a new corporation every week) #
  • @digital_boy Watch the movie "Inside Job" for a really disturbing look at the economic downturn (Won the Oscar for best Documentary) #
  • @digital_boy Just the tip of the iceberg, I'm afraid. Wonder what the motivation was from whomever to single out GE? But yeah, disgusting. #
  • I do love my coffee and previous night's Daily Show recording in the morning. DS is such a good "crap detector". #
  • RT @NYTimeskrugman: The Austerity Delusion http://nyti.ms/h5P1Cp : " punish[ing] unempl'yd by opposing [rem'dies] 2 longrun b'gt problems" #

  • "Followups by reporters sometimes and increasingly based on comments" (paraphrase) via http://bit.ly/dJcCvk live now (ht @jeffjarvis) #
  • @acarvin guess that's how I get pulled in to the horror of it by your curation, etc. Keep up the good work! #
  • @acarvin Yeah, you did say that on #TWIG (on couch w/ your kids) but I did get sense that you were there, prob'ly conflating RT's w/ yours #
  • @jeffjarvis what if @acarvin adds vid cam/small crew 2 his Mi'East travels/tweets/reporting/curating? He ment'd b'gr'nd in doc production #
  • prev ment'n of srch 4 "holy shit" not "current" (2 yrs ago) but sample of searching oft used phrases likely to be used by live witness #

  • After seeing "Inside Job" last pm I feel less confident of our ability 2 get out of this mess they've created. They resist reform even now. #
