“OK Glass…Amaze me.”

January 21, 2014 |

The day after Thanksgiving 2013, I became a member of a group only a handful of people in the DFW area can claim to be part of: Glass Explorers. And inside that small group is an even smaller subsection who refer to themselves as #teamcharcoal.

Google Glass - Charcoal

Google Glass – Charcoal

The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, I had received my invite to buy Google Glass, but didn’t realize it until a local friend, Phillip Kasper, announced that he had received his invite. I looked at my email the next day and noticed an invite of my own. I had saved up money for purchasing it, but I never thought the invite would come within the same year as their début.

I ordered them, that day (and then told the wife about it later,,,oops! ^_^;; ), only to find Read More

TweetSuite WordPress Plugin + Ping.fm (Preview)

March 21, 2009 | | 2 Comments

A couple weeks ago, I found out that Twitter had a Search feature that showed real-time tweets for a keyword. I gave it a little thought, considered what it would take to actually write the software – and then wised up, and decided to see if someone already did the hard work.

Sure enough, Dan Zarrella over at danzarrella.com had. He wrote one for Tweetbacks, and then expanded on it with TweetSuite. So I gave them a shot.

I started with Tweetbacks on the FreeformFrog.com Blog and everything seemed to be working fine – until one day when the Tweetbacks stopped. It just stopped finding them – even though I knew they were getting tweeted – because I was using Ping.fm to syndicate my blog posts to the appropriate social networks.

I gave it a couple weeks, and then decided I was going to fix it. I was tired of not having my TweetBacks working – especially during my efforts pushing a Social Networking campaign at job.

So, I added @danzarrella, and asked…

@danzarrella do you have plans to integrate ping.fm posting in TweetSuite? If not, mind if I take a crack at it?

A few minutes later, I got a response…
