Not sure why I’m posting this, maybe because a blog post makes things feel more significant. More documented, more archived… you know, so my great grandkids can have something to talk to me about in the nursing home (besides the “why do you pee on the floor” stuff).
I’ve finally become a flickr fan boy. It took me 3+ years and now I’m on board. Then I get the lovely AT&T message — like I needed another reason to hate them.
Due to changes in your AT&T Internet Service, your Flickr Pro account will expire on 1st February, 2009. Happy Fucking New Year.
OK, I added the last line, but pretty sure that’s what it said before they had their lawyers look over it. And the screenshot below has been photoshoped, but accurately reflects the message they sent me.
I love YT. Even when they threaten me with dropping my account due to copyright infringement.
Turns out a fat, bald man can’t sing Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinéad O’Connor… who knew. Obviously not me, I thought it fell under Fair Use/Paroday… oh well, I worked things out… kind of.
I have three social media projects that are ready to pop. A twitter stream for all Student Affairs departments is looking nice (and really needs to launch, especially after a University Business article mentioned the accounts). A student leadership page with YouTube, flickr, twitter and a blog is coming together nicely. And youtube/collegeanswers + twitter/collegeanswers is still being hammered out for Admissions, but is picking up steam.
Hard water weekends are back. 128 crappie last weekend, and @treestand got a new background image of the lake map. Plus, we hid a wireless doorbell in Doug’s ice shanty and he’s going crazy. Will post some video to YouTube at a later date. If you’re in the area, stop on by for a tweetup at the shanty – and leave the fancy beer at home.
