Show notes by Daniel M. Clark
My son, Ian, is sick with Croup! I describe what that’s been like for the past three days and how parents can deal with it. I mentioned that Eric Nagel told me via Twitter (or was it Facebook? I couldn’t remember during the recording) that his kid got the croup twice a year when the seasons change. That was a mistake – Eric had contacted me earlier in the day about me moving away from Twitter and into Facebook, it was Jared Saunders that told me via Facebook (around the same time of day) that his son gets it twice yearly. My bad.
Speaking of Twitter and Facebook, Joe and I talk at length about me moving away from Twitter and into Facebook. My grand plan is to only use Twitter to interact with people who aren’t on Facebook. During this segment I demonstrate what a Facebook noob I am.
We also talk about FriendFeed and the lack of interest in it since Facebook bought it, the new Lists feature on Twitter (trying to figure out if they’re worth using). Another new thing from Twitter, the built-in Retweet, gets some coverage, too.
We wrap with discussion about baby sign language and the Signing Time DVD series, which we’re just huge fans of in our house.
