My Twitter Notebook is now open source. I'd like to see what other people would do with it, given the opportunity.
It's hosted at github and the url is http://github.com/issackelly/my-twitter-notebook/
I'd like to start off by saying: I'm not an organized person. I get by pretty well with lists, but overall I don't plan things more than a week in advance, and I don't do a good job remembering things for more than a few days at a time. I decided that I wanted to get better about that, but didn't know where to start. I bought a scanner, and that has helped tremendously; I've also started keeping lists and making quick short notes (I was never much for taking notes, school or otherwise). For that end, I wanted to use my cell phone (calls and text messages only though) to take notes. I thought that I could e-mail myself or DM my own twitter account, but that was a little too primitative, because notes are only good to me if I can search through them, browse, tag, etc as they happen.
I made my twitter notebook in the first couple days of 2009, and I've been very happy with it. Since then, it's made some "Top xx" lists, and also been mentioned (as an aside really) on an MSNBC blog.

I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
