From #twehab: I really, really want to become more than an amateur!

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

I promissed you a 24 hours of radio-silence, well that didn’t quite happen, but the level of tweeting was at a sustainable level.

So what exactly is the sweet spot, where tweeting isn’t an addiction, it turns out that Jyri Engeström of Jaiku-fame gave the answer during his Keynote Speech at Reboot 9 in 2007.

Jyri said that Microblogging (eg. tweeting) is a tool that you can use to discipline your writing/creativity, here’s Jyri’s three steps to how to become a more productive blogger:

1 microblogpost (Jaiku/Tweet/Whatever) an hour
1 photo a day (Flickr/23/Picassa/Whatever)
1 blogpost a week (Preferably from your own domain)

I’ve decided to try to follow Jyri’s “method” – again – I really, really want to become more than an amateur!

ps. Since I received my Kindle I’ve begun reading again, this, too, is an old resolve of mine. Now where do I get hold of some of Kierkegaard’s writings in a format that my Kindle will serve me ;-)?

From #twehab: Day Three: Hvordan synes du selv det går? Time To Go Cold Twurkey!

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Still happy about my twitter selfhelp tool that Rasmus wrote, but hvordan synes jeg så selv det går? If the aim was to cut down on my tweeting, it’s not going well, the habit is under control, and I’m not just, mindlessly sharing, RTing etc. like I did on Saturday.

I’ve been focusing my tweeting, today the topics were #spc09 the SharePoint Conference 09 in Las Vegas, and it was wonderful to latch on the energy of that hastag, and #Kindle since I have one sitting right next to me right now.

Today will be different, there WILL be a 24 hour radiosilence starting no…ahem soon ;-), see you on the other side.

There’s too much going on on twitter for me stop engaging in the conversation, I recommend that you unfollow me if you’re on a low bandwidth device, you can befriend me on Facebook instead.

Yeah I grabbed the cool URL! http://www.facebook.com/kim.bach

Kind regards

ps. My Amazon Kindle is waiting for me at the DHL Warehouse, it arrived yesterday, but it’s one expensive little number, an extra $150 in customs. OUCH!

From #twehab: Hi! My name Is Kim Bach and I’m a tweetaholic

Dear Friends,
Number of tweets made by kim_bach today
Hi! My name is Kim Bach, and I’m a tweetaholic.

Yes, it seems that I’m a tweetaholic, and it really took a wakeup call from my good friend Rasmus Lückow for me to realise that something had to be done about it.

What he did was that he developed a small app, I’d go as far as calling it a “self help app”, that can display the daily number of tweets by me! YES the page IS called kim.php, and it defaults to show tweets by me ;-). It seems that I yesterday averaged close to 1 tweet every 5 minutes, that is just a little over the top.

Rasmus also asked me if I didn’t have more important things to do? Well of course I have, for one I have a job to do, but I also needed a break from it for highly personal reasons, that the people close to me are aware of, and I’ll tell you if you ask me, my e-mail address is kim.bach@gmail.com, you can also use that to hook up using Google Waves.

Not sure what happened, but it could be related to me being high on the Ordskælv! project, but you know, I’ve actually gained some really interesting contacts on Twitter over the last week, so despite being in “twehab” now, I’d recommend annyone to step out of their usually predictable, avoiding the word boring here ;-), self once in a while and do a tweetathon, like I did – I was in a total state of flow – now I need some more Zen!

Postludium: In #twehab now thanks to my wonderful friend @rasmusluckow, See you on the other side (the blogosphere and facebook)

Kind regards

Kim Bach in #twehab

ps. I’ll keep tweeting links to my pictures, blog-posts and what have you, and I will engage in dialogue on twitter, but I’d really prefer the dialogue to take place on the blog, Google Wave, Chat, IRC or Mail.

Superlative?

Stay while I recount the crazy TF2 kill I managed yesterday, my friends.
I’ll spare you my dream then…Nah…Thugs were trying to kill me because they didn’t like that I tried to stop them from killing dogs, for fun, by wailing like a ghost. A kid in the supermarket wouldn’t stop his lift, just kept on going, sliding me through the aisle, eventually dropping the load. The he gave me two bananas that began morphing into a potted plastic flower that spewed some nasty stuff, I told him that I hoped he had to cover the damages from his allowance! BAD! BAD! Kid – ugly too, a nasty redheaded geek with glasses and pimples. That’s when I woke up – thank God!

The comic-stip is from the wonderful xkdc, this one really hit home, and I’ve been waiting for the chance to use it a blog post.

Creepy

OK, I need your advise.

An attractive, rather thrashed, woman walks up to me asking for directions to a bar, I find it using my tech-wizardry, she MUST have known where it was, she claimed that she had lived in that street, I wished her a pleasant night, and we went our seperate ways.

I now see that there were several other doors I could have choosen:

1. Showed her the way
2. Asked if I could join her
3. Suggested that we went somewhere else

Did I choose the right door, in post-cog I think that I should have tried door number 3, I was high on culture from last nights Kulturnat event, and there are several places that are better suited for spirtual encounters than Wessels Kro.

ps. I think that I should have, at least, tried door number 1, it would have let to the possibility of choosing the other two. Hey I might finally be getting the rules if this game, it is a very strange game, and I thought the only way to win is by not playing http://www.kimbach.org/2009/06/28/game-theory/

pps. Suggesting that you go “somewhere else”, is much like saying you want to “park the car” – I should have picked door #1.

Opsigelse af abonnement på WeekendAvisen Knr. xxxxxxxxxx

Friday, October 9th, 2009

Hej WeekendAvisen,

Jeg ønsker at opsige mit abonnement Knr. xxxxxxxxxx, prøvede at gøre det online, men det lykkedes mig ikke at oprette en profil.

Det er ikke fordi jeg er utilfreds med avisen, jeg glemmer bare altid at tage den med mig, og så fylder den for meget.

Venlig hilsen

Kim Bach

ps. Jeg tegner abonnement igen, når/hvis jeg kan få den leveret til min Kindle
