Podcamp New York over and done!

Good fun in Brooklyn this weekend, my presentation seemed to go OK! Here’s a shot somebody snagged with an iPhone and then sent to Flickr:

I met some really nice people and finally took the plunge and after seeing all the cool stuff you can do with the latest iPhone hacks, I took the plunge and upgraded my iPhone to 1.1.4. As before, the upgrade process didn’t got EXACTLY as planned (I mis-read one of the steps) and for about an hour I thought I had killed my phone, but it’s all good now and everything is fine. It’s really quite terrifying every time I upgrade that phone!

One of the coolest apps get on the iPhone now are mobile twitter applications. They’re not just dumpy SMS updates; now I can post updates to my Twitter feed using a cool interface (which I’m still figuring out) and what’s more, you can even push camera photos to Flickr or embed them in Twitter messages using TwitPic, like this one. I tested it and I can twitter from the phone, attach a photo and send it off all while wandering around. That’s pretty cool – it’s like every iPhone owner in the entire world suddenly become a (poorly trained) freelance photojournalists. For the most part, the masses probably use this cool power not to expose corruption and reveal universal truths, they’ll probably be content reporting pretty mundane things but it’s a neat study in technology nonetheless.

Anyhow, fun weekend, and now I’m going to bed. Stupid twitter, keeping me up until quarter to three in the morning.

    I’m a new twitter person, but don’t worry, JJ, you’re added.

    Oh, and I took your advice from a few posts ago about stalkers and t-shirts. Here’s the prototype.
