  • @sestegall Tks. We did. Spent the day (mostly) away from the PC. One more vacation day and she is back to school. Now to catch up… in reply to sestegall #
  • Quiet breakfast with my daughter. #
  • @darbysea I use my Publix or Walgreens green bags at Walgreens. They wouldn’t let you? in reply to darbysea #
  • Watching Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 56 World Series. They’ve left in the Gillette commercials which surprisingly haven’t changed much. #
  • Brighthouse Tampabay, where is MLB HD? Channel 744 is dark. #
  • I’ve implemented a new design over at http://lakelandlocal.com #
  • going to sleep. can’t work. bad, bad host. 🙁 #
  • @darbysea So? How’s the fireworks? in reply to darbysea #
  • And so it starts #lakeland. Wishing you a complete, healthy, and awe-inspiring 2009. #
  • Any NYE traditions? We give my daughter a little change purse with money – for prosperity. Started when I was 6. As you see, it works. 🙂 #
  • Just finished another great meal tks to @englib. Watched a little baseball for desert. Daughter finally lost that tooth…reading?! #
  • @darbysea Fireworks already? Wow, you started drinking early?! Joking. I’m joking folks. Joshing. Nothing to see here. in reply to darbysea #
  • @Suzannadanna It’s all about the moderator. The one that grabbed the moderator rights can ban with a simple command. in reply to Suzannadanna #
  • Spent the afternoon meeting some wonderful Lakeland folks. Not a soul on Twitter. I might have convinced one to join up. Am I in a cult? #
  • @askheidi @amykchulik I figured I’d give the Texas guy a little nudge before I blocked him. I wonder if he’ll look up Patricia Nordman? in reply to amykchulik #
  • Dear followers. Please delete my previous tweet. I must remember “D” for Direct. “D” for Direct. #
  • @askheidi Why would a god fearin’, gun lovin, Communist hatin’ Texan follow people here? Think he’s stumbled onto Operation Nordman? in reply to askheidi #
  • For @petranorris rt: @etanowitz here is an update on the Bright House/Viacom dispute from our TV critic. http://tinyurl.com/8hc6h4 #
  • @foulmonkeys There is something outside Lakeland? My maps all end with “Here there be dragons!” warning signs. in reply to foulmonkeys #
  • @foulmonkeys Yes, Harry’s on Main, near a car lot, that looks like an old A&W. They had those down here didn’t they? in reply to foulmonkeys #
  • #flmortgagepro has had an interesting well-traveled life. Easy guy to talk to and I’m not saying so because he sprang for breakfast @Harry’s #
  • Seriously though, why does Lakeland have two unrelated restaurants named “Harry’s?” No one though to nickname one Harold’s or Hal’s? #
  • @Suzannadanna @foulmonkeys Harrys (not downtown) gets a nod. Not busy, good service, food, & price. Need Wifi as $.75 for paper is too high. in reply to foulmonkeys #
  • @BIF I forget many people use the same status message for both Twitter and Facebook. I was speaking of Facebook only. “In Lakeland,” that is in reply to BIF #
  • Off to breakfast with @flmortgagepro. Trying Harry’s for the first time. #
  • @foulmonkeys So you don’t have a 90 minute wait? in reply to foulmonkeys #
  • @DavidMjoen Podcasting? Just to record? Audacity: http://snipr.com/9atqe I can’t help with a place to host your recordings. in reply to DavidMjoen #
  • @Suzannadanna We could end all messages “in Lakeland.” in reply to Suzannadanna #
  • @Suzannadanna @BIF There are entire days that no one writes “Lakeland” on a wall. That has to change in 2009! 🙂 in reply to Suzannadanna #
  • @BIF Darn, I did neglect Lakeland Twitter pioneers @sestegall @askheidi. You just have that neat TLA (three letter acronym), well, nick. in reply to BIF #
  • @Neilochka Re: Oprah – Exactly why I still ignore those services that want to autopopulate my feedreaders with the “popular” feeds. in reply to Neilochka #
  • @Neilochka Next we’d compare feed lists to see whose list was most like yours. You could see 1 you missed from another with similar taste in reply to Neilochka #
  • @Neilochka I proposed the Most Unique Subscribers list. It was based on how little you followed the crowd. in reply to Neilochka #
  • @Neilochka Almost 5 years ago to the day this was an issue on Dave Winer’s RSS-User group. He had just developed the 100 most followed list. in reply to Neilochka #
  • Re: LPD: Blue Taurus owned by missing Robert Taber, 80 was found burned out behind Tigertown. Body not yet identified. LPD investigating. #
  • RT @PRsarahevans: 60 NY Times reporters on Twitter http://tinyurl.com/8kyopz from @stedavies (Add Ledger Man Ed/Digital: @BIF) #
  • @FriarWade Thanks for the follow. I hope we find something you might have missed in your hometown. 🙂 in reply to FriarWade #
  • @DominickEvans That’s exactly right. We agree. Let’s teach our children well. I’m teaching mine Facebook is silly. Back to work. in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @DominickEvans Just because people make a fetish for everything, we can’t stop living our lives. I can’t imagine shipped pizza though! in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @amykchulik I wonder if Publix sends care packages back North? I’m in Publixland, and I miss Chicago pizza, the Sox, and 24hr shopping. in reply to amykchulik #
  • @DominickEvans So seeing breastfeeding turns on some and you think I’m the one that is wrong? Let’s leave this at “we can’t agree.” S’OK? in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @DominickEvans It’s simple for me. Seeing breastfeeding is as titilating as seeing a bare arm makes me want heroin. in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @DominickEvans I can’t agree it’s fair. Teenagers outside USA see breasts on the beach and drink wine with dinner. They don’t seem hurt. in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @DominickEvans The Facebook policy is we Americans (again) pushing our prudery on the rest of the world. We can’t agree this isn’t sexual? in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @DominickEvans Taking the breastfeeding argument to include the 12 yo is the fallacy of Slippery Slope. Breastfeeding <> flashing. Simple. in reply to DominickEvans #
  • To all the new followers from the journchat: welcome. The ratio of meaningful info to mindless chatter was incredibly high last night. Tks. #
  • @amykchulik Not with the Pet Shop Boys, but the Wang Chung super-fast cuts can cause blindness. in reply to amykchulik #
  • @fsutoby That’s known as New Year’s Adam. in reply to fsutoby #
  • Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow. #
  • @amykchulik Good tune, but the video gave me a 80s Pet Shop Boys / Wang Chung feeling. in reply to amykchulik #
  • @Suzannadanna Ah, Youtube is going to be my friend. Going to also check out Last.fm in reply to Suzannadanna #
  • Who sells Lakeland local bands like this: http://snipr.com/98x3z Slint, Bonnie Prince Billy, Morning Jacket, Joan Osborne. No Love Jones? #
  • Realizing I have too few songs by Kristy MacColl. Time to hit…wait, we no longer have a local music shop. Damn. I miss Ear-X-tacy. #
  • @Suzannadanna Not Harry’s yet. We’re waiting for a morning my wife is available. in reply to Suzannadanna #
  • @sonecessary I believe cynicism has drasticly narrowed reader trust in MSM as a group. Partisanship is growing and it damages MSM. in reply to sonecessary #
  • @sonecessary Sample? Just close to 30 years of dealing with readers and general public. But, I’d love a grant to get a bigger sample. in reply to sonecessary #
  • @sonecessary Heaven forbid my readers give me that kind of trust. 🙂 I preach read as much as possible and look for truth in the chaff. in reply to sonecessary #
  • @sonecessary MSM have earned trust with discerning readers. But when I query the general populace the trust isn’t as certain. #journchat in reply to sonecessary #
  • @DominickEvans I think the majority develop a filter to place greater import on news. Grab a mid-30s paper to see crime news as gossip. in reply to DominickEvans #
  • No pitch. Just a reminder that some of those who write news sites have the same standards and backgrounds as MSM journalists. #journchat #
  • @DominickEvans I think “people” have always cared more about gossip than news. We just have more to choose from now. #journchat in reply to DominickEvans #
  • @jasonsmithtx You learn how to survive a train wreck. What are the traits of those who blossom after the disaster? #journchat in reply to jasonsmithtx #
  • @robodaniel Boomers said the same about Gen X, and god forbid you here what the Greatest Generation thought of the Boomers. #journchat in reply to robodaniel #
  • @jasonsmithtx @BenLaMothe Work with the big guy (or woman) to stand on shoulders and learn from their mistakes.

    #journchat in reply to jasonsmithtx #

  • As with any field that downsizes: interns, volunteers, and the auteur will fill in cracks. In short: more interns #journchat #
  • @journchat @joshuastecker Perfect question for (insert rival group here). And no, it’s not ever OK. #journchat in reply to journchat #
  • Twitter (and other Social media) continues our word-of-mouth growth with occasional instant feedback.
    #journchat #
  • @SOML There will be simple comics feed apps. #journchat in reply to SOML #
  • @prnewswire I’ve found some PR don’t understand the sites in that area between traditional media and “bloggers” #journchat in reply to prnewswire #
  • I read all the Metro I4 newspapers. Most online. The Lakeland-based one I get at the newsstand at breakfast. #journchat #
  • @BIF Maybe something as simple as asking who has a favorite breakfast place netted some new places for me to sample? in reply to BIF #
  • @BIF Does this mean that the paper has plans for a story on Twitter before the 15th? in reply to BIF #
  • RT: The Ledger is looking for anecdotes about how Twitter helped Polk users solve problems, make connections, etc. Pls reply to @bif #
  • @Suzannadanna There must be a cattle rancher in that area. Last time this happened, I saw cattle on the Parkway not far from there. in reply to Suzannadanna #
  • @etanowitz Just don’t bring up puppies. 🙂 Myself, I’m all for local news on the front page. in reply to etanowitz #
  • @etanowitz Did he add a little friendly FU at the end of the interview? in reply to etanowitz #
  • Just watched PD move in to block cattle from walking onto 98 at Polk Pkway #
  • @etanowitz I think it’s just human nature and difficult to resist the temptation. One of the reasons certain news stations are popular. in reply to etanowitz #
  • PR / marketing followers…ever turn down coverage of your event? Why? #
  • Re: LPD — A suspicious case was destroyed by bomb squad detonation at the Watson Clinic on 2901 Memorial at 10:10. Investigation continues. #
  • Metafilter nearly sucked me back in…almost lost again for days. #
  • @cmcarter Re:local web host. Ease of access and an effort to support local business when possible. in reply to cmcarter #
