It was great when everybody stroke up the song (Lollipop is perhaps the best music for this kind of desaster). If you look carefully you can see I messed up the Zig Zag which I wanted to play, but I wasn't fast enough after the moment of OH NO so Tabasco rounded me ;-) But if  nobone sees it nothing happenend ;)
I will save this moment of happiness when everybody watching supported us. A great feeling!

So Happy!
I mistakenly clicked off the notification dropdown window while replying to a comment from a friend of mine and was very happy to see that when I refocused to the comment after losing it the text was... STILL THERE!!! 

Yay!

Youtube Direct on Pawsitive Vybe
Here's what I did last night. Still playing around with it a bit, and dialing it in, but you can see it in action at http://pvybe.com/blog - the blue 'upload your video' button. I am open to design suggestions on the button... 

It's a pretty straightforward process if you already have your google software loaded onto the Eclipse editor. That was the biggest pain of the whole thing... I'm a little simple when it comes to coding - I hack and tear apart and stumble through syntax - so it's been a bit of a challenge, but it's starting to make sense. 

Thank God for this video! It's from the YT Direct getting started guide:
http://code.google.com/p/youtube-direct/wiki/GettingStarted

We will be using this for +Pawsitive Vybe's video assessments and will be rolling out additional assessments and personal sessions using this application. I wish I would have found it earlier and wish it were as simple as a wordpress plugin - hint hint... ;-)

I'll also be doing some more stuff on Eclipse and Flash Builder in the near future. Pretty excited.
Peace~

Interesting neuro stuff here... love to hear more...
 
How You Move Your Arm Says Something About Who You Are

"When Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps steps onto a starting block a few days from now, a Stanford scientist named Krishna Shenoy will be asking himself a question: "What's going on in Michael Phelps' brain?"

Specifically, Shenoy would like to know what's happening in an area called the premotor cortex. This area doesn't directly tell muscles what to do. But it's the place where the brain gears up for something the body is about to do, like swimming."

Here's the latest from the blog... +Loren Feldman - It's funny... making it a list makes it more visible or something... weird.

Adobe Air Success!
So I finally got around to testing the DiscDogger's Toolkit that I created the other day, and wouldn't you know it... It was a success! I'm looking to put together some small packages and some upgrade packages... anyone who has a toolkit or is interested in testing, let me know in comments below.

More PVybe Application Development
 
Pawsitive Vybe Application Development
So I've been doing a bit of work on web and desktop applications over the last few days and grabbed a couple of screen shots: Pics! or it don't exist...

Disc Dogger's Toolkit v1.5
The first screenie is of the +DiscDogger's Toolkit right after being compiled on a trial version of FlashBuilder 4.6. We're pretty excited about updating things a bit, and are working on an updated version for the Fall.

YouTube Direct
The second and third ones is of YouTube Direct - a super cool application that allows people to upload videos directly from our site. You upload a video assessment via the blue button and it hits your YT page, is attached to a playlist of our choosing, and +Ron Watson or +Apryl Lea are sent a notification for playlist approval and feedback. It allows you to upload a new video or use an existing one. It's going to be a great tool for our distance learning program and will also come in handy for video contests like our Spooky Jam.

Application Development on Eclipse
These projects have helped me wrap my head around application development a bit. It's not nearly as crazy as I thought it would be.

Anyone got any advice? Questions?
