1] Our cyber security campaign was a success. It got nearly 6000 sessions. Tomorrow is the official end of the campaign, but we decided to let it roll over to Monday.
2] Speaking of tomorrow – Halloween – it’s the last day of October and thus the last day of Vlog Every Day (in) October. I can’t say I’ll miss having to come up with ideas of what to talk about or producing video.
3] OMG TripIt – the trip help app – is getting creepy close to me. The Wife made a hotel reservation today (using my Honor’s number & email address) and they sent me a confirmation email. Well TripIt “saw the email” and told me “we noticed your email and added it to your itinerary.” That’s a little too personal.
1] My busy week continues. I ate lunch at McDonalds – they ripped me off and I had a fly as a dining companion. I’m never going back to that place. Then I early voted. Then I sat for jury duty for over an hour on the hardest bench ever. The good news was they pleaded and I still got paid $6.
1] So many things are happening this week. I’m trying to write a blog to summarize my High Ed Web conference, and produce this vlog every day in October. I got a flu shot today. I plan on early voting before noon tomorrow, and I have jury duty in the afternoon.
2] Some TV shows are having their season finales while others just started their season a couple weeks ago. Fall sure is the season of change.
3] It’s the countdown to halloween – 3 nights left. It doesn’t feel like halloween. Next year, the Wife said, we’ll do something, but this year is too late – even to pass out candy.
1] That last 3 days we have been traveling. Please excuse the videos.
We came back and everything was fine (aside from the smell). We watched the the Purge 2 tonight. I figured now was a good time to purge old pictures and videos from my computer. I think the oldest was from 2010.
2] If your wife likes Oregon and your step-son like’s Washington – what do you do? Travel more! Both have seen a specific example of both states and neither has seen many examples of both states. More travels in both states will alleviate that problem.
3] Travel is cool but establishment is better. When we travel we see the here and now. When we rest we see the established order of things. Me and my wife both agree we like Astoria for its “wilderness” feel and not the Portland-city feel.
1] Be human was kind of today’s theme. The Best of Track and the Best of Conference was won by David Cameron (Ithaca College) for his presentation, “Human at Work or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Get Better at My Job”
2] As predicted the rain came at noon, right when I was headed to the airport. Now they’re predicting good rain chances until 10-31.
3] We made it from PDX to the hotel – through the middle of Portland, on the Interstate, in pouring rain – in one piece. I’m in aww of Google maps & directions.
1] Man, I thought Texas’ political ads are bad, but Oregon has a crazy numbers of ads. I’ve seen more “Measures” commercials in Portland than I’ve ever seen in Texas.
2] HighEdWeb sessions wrapped up today. I’m surprised I was able to think of Three Bullets while writing notes, tweeting, and going to sessions and events from 7am to 11pm. It was a good conference. I have a few takeaways that I’ll blog about when I get back home.
3] The good weather finally gave up the ghost tonight – tomorrow we will be back to the cold, wet blanket covering the state. It’ll be here the rest of the week and so will I.
