Me Today Nov. 15th SMTT Bring It South Panola! & a Quantum of Solace Review!

Grant, HO, and I also went to see Quantum of Solace last night. It was a good movie I give it a 9 out of 10. Grant gives it a 8 out of 10. I think it's a good movie for theaters. I still like Casino Royale better but it's still an awesome Bond movie.

Check it out!

Troop Tube

As I was searching through my feeds this morning on my reader I found an article on Troop Tube. Immediately I went to the site and signed up for an account.

Some of you are aware I have had a few friends in the past and in the present who have gone over seas to fight for our country. Well, they block YouTube and Ustream (isn't that silly) from use. The military recently came back and started their own youtube like site called TroopTube!

I will probably be using this and encouraging my friend Montana who is currently over there to also use it and upload his videos (I say we keep the list going!!!!! this could get ugly people).

The Conference

The Conference is over FINALLY! Thank you to all who attended in person and online. I apologize for the loss of feed during the keynote speaker. We were using a spotty connection.

The conference was awesome. About 70 people attended from major companies to small businesses to students. It was a hit! I'm hoping to get that group going in my area soon and possibly do something like this again but in a workshop format. I think people enjoy it! And of course next time I want to keep it free as well.

Also, I would like to apologize for my clear flake out moment during my intro. I lost my contact and have been slightly under the weather. It was interesting trying to see read things with one eye.

Don't forget to check out the conference website and join. Let's start a discussion! Ask questions and get them answered. Share and network :)

****This is to everyone regarding the blog*******
More posts are coming soon. I've got a busy month ahead of me with my birthday, Thanksgiving, papers, videos, and Finals.
Now that the conference is over I will be able to post more and some really interesting content I've been working on.
OH! And maybe I'll actually get to catch up on my feeds on google reader. :)

How Much Are your Tweets Worth?

I found this website through a Tweet on Twitter from @besttechie and his Blog I had to go check it out. Basically the site tells you how much you can make in a Month through their service by allowing your account be used as advertising.

I WOULD NEVER DO THIS! So no worries to my followers. I did however find that an interesting concept. Plus you can go to the site type in your Twitter name to see how much you would make a month. Which I thought was neat.

Here were my results:

President-Elect Barack Obama's Victory Speech On When Twitter Broke.

President-Elect Barack Obama not only won the Presidency this evening but he also Broke Twitter! For the entire day due to the elections twitter was slow and updates were delayed. By 11:00 pm ET Twitter just stopped. Many people didn't receive any tweets for a good hour. It was because Twitter was being overloaded with people tweeting about the outcome of the election from around the world. It was a monumental day in many senses. Congrats to Obama and Biden. I can only hope they will both represent our country well.

As for has had a stream throughout most of Obama's Presidential Campaign. On Nov. 4th it was no exception. Thousands and Thousands tuned in to watch his speech live on the popular live streaming site. You can still watch the recorded speech on along with the other happenings of the evening.

Live Broadcasting by Ustream

The video may not work because so many people might be trying to watch the video at once. If this happens then just check out this awesome pic until it comes back up:

Election Day!

Best Buy wishes me Happy Birthday!

As some of you know my Birthday is coming up at the end of the month. I will be 23. Yay! Well, about an hour ago I recieved an e-mail from Best Buy giving me a coupon to use for my Birthday. At First I was SUPER EXCITED! I was ready to head back out and go buy a movie I wanted (Sleeping Beauty).

Then I read the Coupon again.

It seems the coupon expires on October 31, 2008... Odd thing is I only just got it for the first time today! Not to mention my Birthday isn't until Nov. 29th.

So whats the deal Best Buy?
