Twitter Updates for 2008-12-30

  • @BikePortland Agreed. But how hard is it to procure a few pots of paint? That’s the bike infrastructure goal of most local authorities. #
  • New Year’s resolution: get out and cycle more. Road bike. Commuter bike. Mountain bike. Tandem. Unicycle. #
  • Social Media primer for bike shops by @matthewscd http://tinyurl.com/7l22o8 #
  • @craigmcginty True. Apart from the Specialized club at the back! #
  • @matthewscd and his social media guide now on the BikeBiz tweeters list: http://tinyurl.com/biketweeters #
  • The 45-page social media guide by @matthewscd will get its own BikeBiz story soon. #
  • Got an iPhone? Take pix? Animate a 30-sec slide show to music: http://iphone.animoto.com I happily pay for the brill desktop app. @animoto #
  • @petergold99 No, probs with Dell, too. Go check out @alastairmck #
  • @petergold99 @andyheadworth @alastairmck [smug] Get a Mac , problem solved! [/smug] Touch paper lit, runs away…. #
  • Social media primer for bike shops and other SMEs on BikeBiz.com: http://is.gd/earR #
  • @niltiac Talk is good, obviously. But think what you’d like your government to do if your town was regularly hit by missiles. #
  • New game: solve the age-old crisis in the Middle East in 140 characters or less. #
  • @niltiac The Israelis know this. Every Israeli rocket strike will create more Hamas supporters. It’s an unwinnable spiral. #
  • @niltiac It’s hyper-regional politics coloured by deadly mix of religion and nationalism. Both sides are wrong, both sides are right. #
  • @niltiac Suffering in Gaza could have been stopped 50 years ago. Arab League prevented this. Gaza has long been an artificial hostage. #
  • @niltiac I’ve lived and worked in Israel and other ME countries. We, in the West, see ME in weird Biblical prism, skewing our senses. #
  • @dcouch Most powerful being Israel? For sure, jaw, jaw always better than war, war. But US and UK went to war in ME over far less. #
  • @niltiac Nothing can justify killing. If only both sides agreed. #
  • @niltiac Lots of wars elsewhere go largely unreported yet even minor stuff in Israel gets worldwide media coverage. Bible Goggles distort. #
  • @niltiac I didn’t say current situation was minor. As a whole, Israel is over-reported, and all because of the Bible Goggles. #
  • Anti-Israel story from Iranian news agency. http://is.gd/eaSx I didn’t know Iran had a Jewish MP. #
  • Anybody care to bet against Chris Hoy becoming the Knight Rider Sir Chris Hoy in New Year’s Honours List? #
  • Forced kids out into cold to (a) fly Josh’s RC chopper (now RIP) and (b) cycle to library to return book. Very cold out there. Like, very. #
  • @jreesnc Good cause, but it’s Change.org, not Change.gov. One is Barack’s, t’other isn’t. Still go vote, mind, only 600 needed by Dec 31! #
  • RT @MarketingProfs What price consumerism? by @timjackson http://tinyurl.com/9jsk3h #
  • @matthewscd No worries. You’re also now the latest addition to the BikeBiz tweeters list at http://tinyurl.com/biketweeters #
  • @jreesnc I guess many people will think it’s official and linked to Barack. It’s certainly designed to look official. #
  • @bomboloni Consider it done! #
  • Thanks to @bomboloni I’ve added @nycvelo to BikeBiz Tweeters list at http://tinyurl.com/biketweeters Any bike shops missing? #
  • Writing embargoed news story about those to be beknighted in New Year’s Honours List. Humming this tune http://is.gd/hWB #
  • Top 10 green transportation trends of 2008, from inhabitat.com: http://tinyurl.com/9orsdr What, no http://tinyurl.com/6fhwxl ? #
  • It might have been cold, but once we were out, it was OK to ride to the library. Reidlet pix: http://is.gd/edbI 1st pix for kid bike book #
  • Allowed my cellphone-driver-passing-a-cyclist pic to be used on ‘Knob heads of the road’ group. http://is.gd/eddd Could be a BIG group! #
  • RT @danzarrella: I love shorty nominations: http://tinyurl.com/94ysou (I also love retweets) #
  • Pix of illegal parking from one short walk near my home. Such parking is now considered normal. http://is.gd/ediy #
  • @blackbottoms is now on http://tinyurl.com/biketweeters #
  • @bikelady No 1. Turn off Twitter! #
  • @ellyblue I have so many of those titles! I have been indoctrinating my kids with the pro-bike message since birth. http://bit.ly/TFAi #
  • Oops. Pavement parking in UK is different to pavement parking in US. http://is.gd/edHR #
  • Three hours until embargo is lifted on New Year’s Honours list. Arise Sir… #
  • @SarcastiCyclist Hoy won three Olympic golds, Cav won none. Tour de France stage victories don’t win UK gongs. #
  • @FitMom Both. Olive oil is the fat. Chick peas and tahini is the protein. #
  • @ellyblue I have a few different ones, collected as child propaganda over the years. Will send titles when I find ’em. #
  • I feel a Knight Rider subhead is on its way… #
