70 Months of Tweets

Today marks … no, I’m not talking about Twitter’s IPO, but more than 70 months since my first tweet on 21 December, 2007, “Getting ready for holiday break :)”. Took me over six months since my good friend @stevestaso first urged me to try it out earlier in the year. Scrolling through my Twitter history this morning brought back quite a few memories, (parenthesis are my current comments), some samples:

  • snow coming down hard (04 Jan 2008 Mammoth Mountain)
  • visiting Red Bull Racing in UK
  • at TACC for National Science Foundation review
  • checking out the latest OpenSolaris live boot CD (yes CD, not DVD, that was one of our design goals)
  • on call with Jonathan, he is talking about his visit with Twitter
  • posted from iGoogle BeTwittered
  • resetting my Treo the 2nd time in a month, may be time for a new phone
  • I think the dog ate about a half dozen hot dogs (extended family BBQ)
  • a few hours sleep on redeye to Boston
  • 6 am flight out of Boston, having been here 7 years ago … (11 Sep 2008)
  • getdropbox.com wins a home run in ease of use
  • giving @monkchips tips on where to get a great burrito in LA (28 Oct 2008)
  • I love SmugMug, 10,000 photos uploaded in 48 hours (27 Dec 2008)
  • visualization of DNA protien folding accelerated by Nvidia
  • when 8 GPUs are better than 2, performance/watt comparison of RTM workload on HP ProLiant SL390s configs
  • GPU computing in China (13 Dec 2011)
  • chilly morning in Boston (9 degrees F)
  • HP Cloud now Available (10 May 2012)
  • Meniscus surgery
  • Sunrise at Logan
  • SLC snowscape at SC12
  • onboard @united 787 Dreamliner (12 Dec 2012, pre battery replacement)

    I can’t wait for the next 71 months!
