Here’s a little video from the Macworld floor. The new macbook air is mighty sexy. As soon as I touched it I wanted to buy it. Thinking it over, though, it’s not designed as a primary computer for people like me. Video processing on that thing would drive me crazy. Still, I can’t help but want it.

Jumpcut is a giant piece of poo. Seriously, it is painfully slow (worse than last.fm) and I will not be surprised if we loose users over this. The fix is coming, and I can’t wait.

Macworld was a lot of fun. I bought this pink jelly keyboard cover for my mac. It dampens the clicky noise and keeps crap off of the keys. There were a ridiculous number of ipod accessories. I don’t need 1,000 ways I can cover my ipod, but I guess some people do.

I’m crying because all my photos are 640×480. I had changed the resolution on my camera last week for a stop animation movie I was doing (I gave up. It was too hard), and I never changed it back. I love having big photos because I want the option to print them large (also I have a huge screen so I want large photos in case I want to use any of them as a background).

I made some movies, but Jumpcut is broken right now so I’ll post them later. I got to hang out with (congrats!) and for a bit but I spent the majority of my time with ijustine and ashot. Justine is the first person I’ve gotten to know online and then met IRL. We got along beautifully. I had a blast running around doing silly things with her. I think my coworker was mildly amused at how emotional and weird I can be. I think the reason why I like ijustine so much is that she’s very comfortable with herself.

The one unifying trait about all of my friends is that they (you) are a bit weird (I mean that lovingly) and very much ok with it. The world ‘comfortable’ has some negative connotation in that it suggests contentment, or no desire to change. To be precise, I mean ‘someone who can express his thoughts or emotions without crippling paranoia of societal judgment.’ There is no denying that we are social creatures and the opinions of others matter but there has to be a reasonable point at which one stops caring. The people I surround myself with are both supportive and constructively critical. I appreciate being called on my shit.

WEEEEE! Ya. Here’s how you get a discounted rate:

And remember, if you tell a friend about Macworld Conference & Expo, they will receive their Exhibit Hall Registration for only $25! Give them PRIORITY CODE: E-BFF and ask them to register today at
http://www.macworldexpo.com/live/20/register

Of course, my adventures will be documented :) My camera doesn’t have an external mic jack so i’m going to take my powerbook and a mic, along with my camera. One of my movie ideas is to make a karoke-style movie for a few popular songs (which have yet to be chosen.) and then convince people to sing to the isight while recording them dance. The resulting movie will look something like this except with more people.
