  1. WordCamp SF 2010

    I’m heading to WordCamp SF again this year and quite looking forward to it. Several folks from Crowd Favorite are making the trip this year. I’m looking forward to seeing a number of friends in the community this weekend. Of particular note, I’m hoping to talk to more plugin developers and find our new ways…

  2. Twitter Tools 2.3

    I’ve updated my Twitter Tools plugin to version 2.3. This version has several security enhancements (thanks Mark Jaquith) as well as a change that may help some folks that have been seeing doubled digest posts. I recommend upgrading ASAP. The Twitter Tools plugin creates a full integration between your WordPress site and your Twitter account.…

  3. Killer App for iPad?

    The criticism of the iPad before its release was basically: what do I need it for? Having used it for a little while, I’m honestly not sure… Don’t get me wrong, I like my iPad, but I haven’t seen the (or even a) killer app for the iPad yet. I’m generally using my iPad for…

  4. Around the web

    Tweetage Wasteland : Trying to Padlock a Cloud YouTube – Android running on iPhone – Very cool. FactoryCity Understanding the Open Graph Protocol and the follow-up What I like about Facebooks openness – I’m glad Chris is still fighting the good fight here. From the Facebook perspective, product vs. open-standard + implementation is always a…

  5. How to Enable an Eye-Fi Card on Canon Rebel T2i

    I recently upgraded from a Canon 20D to a Canon Rebel T2i. One of fringe benefits was that the T2i takes SD cards instead of CF cards – meaning I can use an Eye-Fi card without an adapter. I’m a big fan of Eye-Fi cards – really of anything that makes data transfer easier. I…

  6. WordPress HelpCenter Support Packages

    One of the things I love about WordPress HelpCenter is the way we are able to add offerings based on customer demand. Our latest addition is a formalization of a collection of support and maintenance packages so that we can provide pro-active support for our customers. With these packages, we are not only responding to…

  7. My Daughter Turns One

    It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since my daughter was born. In fact, it’s hard to accurately put into words how much has happened in the last year… more than a bit crazy when I look back on it. I have a suspicion that I need to get used to this feeling. It’s…

  8. Around the web

    Instant email is good for nobody : Devin Reams – I don’t do it intentionally, but I’ve noticed that when I can’t respond to a support request for a day or so people get the answer from the documentation or an FAQ more often than not. Firefox ported to webOS, PDK to blame for this…

  9. Fool Me Once Browser Extension/App

    Wow, I need to remember never to come back here again. I know I’ve had this reaction more than once when landing on a site. Some web sites behave badly, it’s annoying. Eric‘s recent tweet reminded me of a conversation Shawn and I had a few months back. The idea is to create a browser…

  10. Beware iPad Auto-correct Sources

    Every time I typed the word “as” into my iPad (and iPod touch), it would auto-correct to “A’s”. Drove me absolutely nuts! Turns out it was using my Address Book as an auto-correct data source and I still had “Oakland A’s Tickets” in there from when I lived in the Bay Area. I removed this…

  11. Mobile Devices and Input Accessories

    The iPad has sparked renewed interest in detachable keyboards, but to the surprise of folks who know me (and my attachment to physical keyboards on mobile devices) I’m not on board. I’ve been down this road before, with the Newton, the Stowaway keyboard for the Palm V series and the clip-on keyboard for the Palm…
