Jeffrey’s Twitter Updates for 2008-01-14

  • @kristiewells Have looked for GS for years, and never once seen here. Wish they sold the cookies online. Girl Scouts is such a good org. #
  • The FaceBook article on CBS’ 6o Minutes is beginning now. #
  • #Facebook’s #Zuckerberg on 60 Minutes disappointed me. I thought he would have exuded confidence, or at least a charming geekiness. #
  • I found him somewhat dull and boring. Good ideas, but not the best at communicating and / or selling them. #
  • Was it just me, or did #Zuckerberg’s eyes in the interview seem lifeless? #
  • or like a shark? #
  • Reporting for jury duty. #
  • At jury duty they told us how important our roles are in the justice system. #
  • Does not seem just the state pays jurors only 40 dollars a day. #
  • Prospective jurors with last names that begin from A to D, please step forward with your summonses. #
  • They say they have wifi here. Started to liveblog until they told us to turn everything off. #
  • At least all my Tweets are indexed and added to my blog daily. #
  • I suppose that Twitter can be considered a liveblogging application? #
  • Handed in my summons and lost my seat in the process. Expected that, though did not want to leave my things unattended in this huge room. #
  • @robinyap True. Hope to get some reading and work done while waiting. I teach tonight, and hope this will not be too late. #
  • They are finally calling people. Odd to actually NOT wanted to be selected. #
  • Just called. Off to the first courtroom. #
  • Waiting for the court officer. This liveblogging of jury duty makes this a really interactive and more democratic process. #
  • Lower Manhattan is sure beautiful from thr 11th floor of the NY State Supreme Court building. #
  • I am glad the courts allow us to use Internet and computers. I suppose that may change if we get into a courtroom. #
  • Walked down the stairs to the courtroom where they told us to report. Elevators seemed too closed in. Perhaps I did not want to be confined? #
  • Wow, this liveblogging jury duty will keep me busy today! More interesting than all the reading I brought with me. #
  • I have to turn off all my electronics. That is the case. #
  • Went into the courtroom and the last five of us did not fit. So, they sent us back. Great unknown strategy! #
  • So, if there are too many jurors sent to a courtroom, those who are last and do not fit go back into the larger pool. #
  • About to sit back down and power up the computer, when they told us another group will be selected for another case. Let’s not hear my name. #
  • They literally do shuffle the juror cards up front to then select the names from the 200 or so of us who are here. #
  • In a way, I wonder if the #juror cards are really unlike #Tarot cards? Different people want different things to show up. #
  • Phew they did not call my name. #
  • Somebody was not in the room when they called her, and then she came back in. Perhaps that is another strategy, since they sent another #
  • And told her to take a seat? #
  • Just dismissed for lunch. We actually have until 2:00, since there will not be any cases before the next jury call at 2:00. Hurray! #
  • Will power down my computer and catch up on some reading during lunch. #
  • Need some (a lot) of coffee. #
  • Did not know where to get lunch while at jury duty. I know is by Chinatown, but do not know any good Chinese food around here. #
  • Last two times I ate Chinese food in NY Chinatown, it did not agree with me. #
  • Eating at McDonald’s instead. #
  • Can anybody recommend good jury duty food in Manhattan for tomorrow? #
  • @robinyap. Thank you for the help. With somuch waiting and liveblogging this morning, I need a skim venti quad latte. Has not helped yet. #
  • This area around the courthouses in lower Manhattan has always puzzled me. Perhaps that is a good thing. #
  • Back in the jury room waiting for jury roulette to begin anew. #
  • Waiting to be called. Still waiting. #
  • Dismissed from jury futy for today. Hurray. Still have to report back tomorrow morning. #
  • @alexkingorg Good luck with them. #
  • Going to class. I begin teaching my MBA class, Business Communication, this evening. #
