Jeffrey’s Twitter Updates for 2008-11-30

  • Getting ready to leave for Michael Storrings’ ornament and book signing at Saks in Manhattan again today. #
  • @RobinYap Will be great if you could come for it. Perhaps he will do a Canadian ornament? #
  • @chadarizona Do you have any references you can share? #
  • @dianadell Nothing in particular. I am looking for research in general; will get more specific once I better understand the landscape. #
  • @dianadell I am not interested in white papers or the like, but rather Twitter studied using actual research designs. #
  • @chadarizona BTW, what is #cscw? #
  • @RobinYap What are some of the department stores in Toronto? #
  • @betsyweber I have never been to Michigan . . . #
  • Fortune cookie #1 from dinner – “The food here taste so good, even a cave mane likes it.” #
  • Fortune cookie #2 from dinner – “So live that you wouldn’t be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip.” #

  • About to leave to see the show “White Christmas” on Broadway. #
  • Does anybody know if there has been any research studies about Twitter? #
  • Enjoyed seeing White Christmas. Having a drink in the Broadway Lounge overlooking Times Square from the 8th floor. #
  • I cooked breakfast this morning. First time I made bacon on the stove in years. The new pan (Christmas gift) works really well. #
  • Have to take a drive to the Catskills. Hope it is not snowing there. #
  • Will miss Michael’s ornament and book signings at Saks today. #
  • There is still over a foot of snow in the Catskills. The snow is still on the trees. Very pretty. #

Michael Storrings Signs at Saks Fifth Ave. on Black Friday

Michael Storrings is signing his ornaments, book, and tabletop  items today (Black Friday), tomorrow, and Sunday at the flagship Saks Fifth Ave. in Manhattan from 1:00-4:00 pm.

Let us hope that the incredible busyness that we saw at Tavern on the Green yesterday (both in the shop as well as waiting for our 8:00 pm reservations) translates into a better shopping year than the (reactionary?) news people are yelling about.

 

Doodle’s New Interface

My favorite online event scheduling program, Doodle, has just released a new interface:

This makes it easier to figure out what to do with the program, and the sleeker and more professional-looking graphics makes me wonder about how they are demonstrating they want to break into the big leagues. Good for them! They have a simple product and do not make us users jump through all sorts of hoops to use it. Simple account set-up, easy-to-edit scheduling, and few ads. All around, a nice service to use. I have found Doodle even easy to use with technology newbies, which is often an audience with which I directly work.

They are a model for how Web firms should focus on their core competency and perfect what they begin before they expand into trying to do everything.

  • Just walked the dogs and made some coffee. Wow, the city is quiet this morning. #
  • I like being in NYC on holidays. So many New Yorkers leave the city, so it is rather quiet for those who stay and the tourists as well! #
  • Just got an email from a friend I did some grad studies with who I have not spoken to in a while. Amazing what blog post subscriptions do! #
  • Michael Storrings is signing his book and ornaments at Tavern on the Green now and all afternoon. What a beautiful NYC institution. #
  • Back at Tavern on the Green. The reservations line has about 200 people waiting on it. I think they are all there to see Michael! #

Thanksgiving Parade Ornament

Among the more detailed ornaments Michael Storrings paints is his Thanksgiving Day Parade ornament, which captures the joy and wonder of the parade I have felt for my 20+ years in New York City. How fitting it is for today, as the parade is about to begin.

BTW, this ornament is available at a number stores in New York, including Saks Fifth Ave. in Manhattan.
