  • When asked to "pose with more depth," She-Ra asked, "Oh, like for 3D?" What a smart warrior! http://t.co/x8TYHzeW #
  • @justicecovert Heh. Yeah, I was confused by the Darth Maul with spider legs, and the Boba Fett head with crab spider legs, too. #
  • @levioninc Thank you! You and your QuickBooks addon have been reported for spam. #

  • It's very simple, @FreshDirect: use a ching-chong font, alienate your Asian customers. "Is Your Font Racist?" http://t.co/V7drAukl #
  • It’a raining in SF? Wtf?? #
  • @gilesshaxted It's a stretch. But anything that tries to be "Oriental" and reminds Asians of stereotyping / the past is going to alienate. #
  • @blam The whole industry has converted over to their lights. Only issue is that battery is not removable. Some airlines won't like that. #
  • Living Pictures: Stunning Images of #SDCC 2012, Captured with the Lytro Camera #ComicCon http://t.co/m0uhFF1y #
  • @gilesshaxted Fortunately for us, It doesn't matter if you get it or not. It isn't "all of a sudden." Chinatowns all have history. #
  • @gilesshaxted Early use of those fonts were always tied to offensive stereotypes. The two are inextricably linked. Use is ignorant. #
  • @gilesshaxted just because you see something a lot doesn’t make it acceptable or right! #
  • Do you love the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s? This is what an Asian person associates with the movie. http://t.co/0cedygRQ #
  • @gilesshaxted it is too hard to have this conversation over twitter! #
  • Spotify + Airfoil = awesome. #
  • @tjhanley It should be one. :) #
  • This is too cool. 2 of the walkers in the Walking Dead Escape video I just posted have commented on Facebook. http://t.co/sZDIqlGD #sdcc #
  • Sony DCR-RX100 shipping estimate just changed to arrival on July 23, 2012. Excited! #fb #
  • After using our LG passive-3D display at work for a couple months, now, I never want to go back to active 3D. Active 3D is dead. #
  • Do it, internets! :) RT @tjhanley: .@echeng new meme? http://t.co/vJAeGFQ1 #
  • @sterlingz Nice! I just ordered one. I want to do G+ Hangouts from it. #
  • Woke up to a 3-hr flight delay, which would make me late for my talk in Santa Barbara. Love SFO in the summer. #
  • Voice recognition-based customer service fails horribly at airports when loudspeakers are blaring continuously. #
  • @blam’s continued coverage: “@BoingBoing: Defunded - a heartbreaking look at the state of oceanic research http://t.co/5CJvyYZd#
  • It’s one of those crap travel days. Delays everywhere. May take me 8 hrs to get from SF to Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara. #
  • @terragalleria consumers don’t use Mac Pros and 30” displays. ;) #
  • As always, I land in LA and my #verizon iPhone heats up immediately (draining battery quickly) #
  • @robert_oliver_1 it wasn’t supposed to take this long. :) #
  • @terragalleria I’m in the same situation. I use a 1500VA battery and get about the same amount of time. #
  • @joemfbrown “Kale” is a proper noun to @blam. #
  • Really enjoyed my talk to Ralph Clevenger’s class at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara. Very different than talking to local UW photo clubs! #
  • @blam @joemfbrown “Juicy Kale Lam” #
  • I hope Google acquires Twist app and integrated into maps on mobile #
  • @tonywu you need Twist app. It is much better than Glimpse for Em to track you with. #
  • @terragalleria Thanks for the #FF #
