David: may be worth pinging Steve Wozniak.
Erin: is there even an email available for him?
David: he has a PR firm: Wozniak@****************.com
Erin: hahahaha, worth a shot
David: also try: *****@woz.org
Erin: you know so much on how to reach the woz!
David : nothing! I'm not a stalker! shut up!
Erin: hahaha, we can call it being a "journalist"
Chris: you got time for lunch around 1:30ish?
David: just got hit with breaking news.
Chris: What news?
David: the Facebook cofounder renounced his citizenship
Chris: Not the winklevi, I assume.
David: haha, no, the other guy
Chris: The guy played in social network by the new spider-man?
David: Did You Know? Only one Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has gone on to serve as President of the United States. Martin Van Buren served as Chairman from 1823 to 1828, and became the eighth President in 1836, serving one term
Stacy: clearly this testimony is riviting you
David: I think it's going to be a short write
Ben (markets writer): Ha, did you see Facebook might not file until after market close?
Julianne: haha, we saw that earlier and cried. we came in at 730 just in case, but im going to guess it will be around 5pm.
Julianne: i would actually find it funny if they didnt file today. we'd all look like morons
Ben: there were rumors that greek deal would come 'within hours' earlier today. we should have a pool on which will not come first
Dave: 38 minutes into this panel, and Facebook still hasn't said anything. "You want to sue us? Well, screw you and your stupid panel"
Stacy: they can be the clarence thomas of this event
Dave: I feel bad for this Facebook lawyer. She's writing a lot, and she clearly spent a lot of time on her hair. maybe she's shy.
Dave: she speaks!!!!! 56 minutes!
Stacy. yay! was it an apology?
Dave: "we need to educate people about implications of making things public." Glad you're here, Facebook
Dave: it's weird. I've been using Facebook since 2004 and I literally don't know how to use it anymore. like, there used to be a thing that showed you where your friends birthdays are
Julianne: its hidden on the side now
Dave: I used to try to get my Mom to use Facebook, telling her how easy it was. and now, I actually have no idea what's going on when I sign onto the first page
Julianne: everyone is pregnant on my homepage
Dave: nice. and then some things have blue triangles. seriously, I feel like a grandpa who doesn’t how to work his BlackBerry
Julianne: haha. I felt like that with Google Wave
Dave: however, I can explain in detail why Sprint phones won't work on Verizon's service. so...I've got that going for me
Julianne: the triangles are "highlighted stories" that Facebook thinks youll care about
Dave: one day you'll teach me how to use the blue triangles in Facebook, and I'll teach you about OEM-installed Android debug logs
Julianne: i'm glad to be me and not you in that scenario
Stacy: did you download the guardian's new facebook app?
Neil: no. in fact, that's what made me try to quit Facebook
Stacy: did you download an app from them long ago?
Neil: I don't think so. why?
Stacy: cos it's showing you as one of my "friends who use this app"
Neil: ?!? let me go look
Stacy: was trying to figure out how broadly it grabs permissions
Neil: nope, I have not used it
Stacy: awesome. sending you the screenshot
Neil: I was asked if I wanted to use it, and clicked the "F#%$ NO" button. actually, guess it should be the "PISS OFF" button
Stacy: Our article is basically about facebook's lack of a F#%$ OFF button
David: there's no Expo today for whatever reason, AND there's no hands-on demo for press, AND press won't be given the tablets to try out
Stacy: microsoft really knows how to party
David: okay, still working on this, but looks like i've secured a tablet
David: also, the German guy next to me is trying out the pen interface by writing "Fuck you" over and over. That is, apparently, the extent of his English.
Stacy: I love it
David: I'm getting to play with the tablet in a "supervised environment" in an hour.
Stacy: afterward, do you get cookies and a nap?
David: oh, God, I hope so
David: is this an acceptable use of kibosh? "If AT&T's merger bid is successfully kiboshed, T-Mobile will find itself in a big pickle."
Stacy: hahah, yes
David: sweet. haha. Wasn't sure if you have to "put the kibosh on" something, or if something can be passively kiboshed. Learn something every day
Stacy: i wonder if there's an AP stylebook entry on this
David: I should hope so
Stacy: the epilogue is that I may kibosh pickle
Nick: you need to get that gross thing off your wall
Julianne: what? i don't see anything!
Nick: how would you see it? you're at work
Julianne: what do you mean? i can log in at work
Julianne: ohhhh wait. you mean my real wall? i thought you meant facebook wall
Nick: hahahha jules.....
Julianne: i know, i know. i want to punch my own face
