It's National Book Week. The rules: Grab the closest book to you. Go to page 56. Copy the 5th sentence as your status. Don't mention the book. Post these rules as part of your status.

"A fancy interactive lamp needs to be dimmable."

You heard it here first, folks.

Mauled by the Mac OS Lion.

The OS upgrade took my primary account and converted it (somehow?) into a GROUP. The files for this account are present, but it isn't really an account anymore so I can't log into it. It's a very odd state to be in. Current state is this: created new account with Admin privileges. Am considering options: attempt a manual migration? Attempt to migrate a user from an old backup (does that even work?)

Thanks for nothin', Steve.

Ideas, anyone?

UPDATE:
application of chown -R, aggressive copying and typing in lots of passwords, i've restored sync, omnifocus, dropbox, itunes....

lesson learned: the cloud can't get here a minute too soon. the parts that were painless were all cloud-restore experiences. Everything that was connected to my laptop was a total pain in the backside.

Sad, but well-written.
I have breast cancer. A week ago, I had breast cancer, and the week before that, and the week before that. Maybe five, eight, even ten years ago, the first bad cell split inside me, secretly. But I didn't know. This is how I arrived at knowing. Two friends of mine were recently diagnosed. When news of the first came, I felt sadness. When news of the second came a few weeks ago, I felt a different kind of shock. I'd never had a mammogram. Even th...

Awesome.

Between Mobile Me, iCloud, an iPhone, an iPad and a Macbook Pro, I can now confidently say this: I have no earthly idea where my contacts actually live. All of this to say, if you contact me in the next couple of days and I ask you, "who are you and how do I know you?" you'll know that my attempt to fix this situation has gone very badly. Been nice knowing all of you.

Unfortunately, I don't own an Apple computer, just the phone and a tablet.

Hey small biz owners - we need your help!

My team at frog Design is looking for owners of small-to-medium sized businesses who would be willing to sit and talk for about an hour next week. We're working on a project that aims to make marketing campaigns better for SMB folk, and we'd like to get your thoughts about what does and doesn't work well in your world.

We'll make it worth your while (that's right, compensation. With actual money.) Drop me a note here if you're interested.
Thanks!

+Matt Conway I'd be interested. I'm a SMB in Costa Rica, +Paradise Social I'm a SMM. I don't know if that affects the selection criteria.

That doesn't really work until G+ offers a way to select a set of circles that you see by default. I'm not willing to click on N-1 circles to read everything except Scoble.
