I don't believe I am going to be out of town during the General Strike #OWS #OccupyOakland

Doing well; Oakland has some unrest, but it isn't dangerous here. We seem to have had our time as the news center. I don't know what will come of OWS in the end, but it has raised a lot of awareness!

Apparently some people believe that the protesters in Oakland have been violent. Here's a video my boyfriend took there last night - they are organizing a discussion group about a proposal to stage a public strike. I've been to book club meetings that were more violent than this.

I went to Pirates of the Caribbean. The ride, not the movie.

I'm traveling to Hamburg for business, but I couldn't resist booking this kitchy hotel. It used to be a brothel. It is also a lot cheaper than the executive hotels. It also isn't so far from the meeting location.

I can't figure out how to change the cover picture of my new profile, nor its name. Maybe these features are forthcoming?

I'm running in this event (you can't really call it a 'race') in a few weeks to get support for the San Francisco AIDS foundation (SFAF). SFAF does a lot of good work on prevention and awareness of HIV-related issues, and provides assistance for HIV-positive people who need help with housing, medical costs, etc. Please consider sponsoring me, and help me meet my fundraising goal. Any amount, no matter how little, is appreciated.

Another video from #OccupyOakland; sorry about the poor sound quality, the microphone blinks out when the sound level gets too high. Speaker summarizes what has happened in Ogawa Plaza in the past two days, and plans for a general strike next week.

Celebrating National Coming Out Day by looking for someone who didn't already know that I am gay.

I had no idea. And all along I assumed you were just a really smart guy.

A few more seconds marked off of my 15 minutes of fame; I was interviewed as a "man in the street" on a topic I am completely unqualified to speak on (the downgrading of the US credit rating). Apparently it aired - some friends of mine saw it.

Being unqualified to speak on a topic hasn't held back other people from commenting (q.v. most of Congress and all of Fox News).

I got my iphone a bit wet today (running in a warm summer rain on the beach - does it get much better than that?). Now it is going nuts, executing random features every 10 seconds or so. Most of them are nonsense, but occasionally it calls someone. If I call you, and all you hear is background noise, that's why.

My android has been doing this, except it's not water-related - it's heat related. Maybe then it's the humidity associated with the heat?

I sent an invitation to Google+ to a friend, but it never arrived. Anyone else have this issue? Or is that how it works - invitations only work when Google is looking to expand the base?

I believe that if they have a google account whose login name is the email address you are inviting, it goes to their google account and NOT to their email. At least it was the case with a friend of mine whom I invited.
