Hugger at Work

We use a collection of mobile apps and hardware for the mobile social, including

  • Twitter Mobile — a lightweight page optimized for phones and mobile internet devices
  • Flickr emailer — a mailto function from Flickr that includes, title, subject, and tags; take a photo and email it to Flickr.
  • TwitterFeed — sends our Hugger feed to Twitter.
  • Feedburner — splices our Delicious links, posts, and photos into one feed.
  • Movable Type — our blogging engine of choice.

I post with my iPhone and MacBookPro. While not recommend for the non-experienced rider (especially in traffic), I shoot on-the-bike video with a Casio Exilim and edit that in iMovie HD (the older version). We’ll move to Final Cut Pro later in the year with the arrival of the new Canon HDs camcorders. I also expect an incredible offering of mobblogging apps, as soon as developers figure out the iPhone SDK, Intel’s Atom products start showing up, and mobile internet devices mature. We’ll see a bunch of those devices tomorrow here in Shanghai.

Behind that wall once were shanty homes and a skyscraper will follow – read the related post about the Shanghai Flow.

Dahons Have Arrived

Dahon kindly arranged our rides for Shanghai–a pair of matching Mus. More photos to follow and I quickly noticed the new V-Clamp Hinge and other refinements including a bell built into the Tektro brakes and a Biologic Joule Dynamo hub.

Sheldon Brown Memorial Ride: April 1st, 6:00, BikeStation Seattle

Folks who’ve spent a bit too much time on Sheldon Brown’s amazing websites will know of his fondness for April Fools jokes such as the tork-grip (yes, the DIY version is in my garage right now).

What better way to memorialize Sheldon “ineffable” Brown than an April Fools ride. They’re happening all over the place (the last link is a directory), including one in Seattle.

Details: 6:00 PM at the Seattle Bikestation, on April 1st of course. Hope to see you there!
