Number 57 shocked me!Facebook just gave me the option to block all from Upworthy. You won't believe what I did next.

@SamMorrisDesign Try TripIt (http://t.co/DShfCSv1us), used it for years, you simply forward all your confirmation emails, works like magic.@mrconnorobrien @tullyhansen The other is not keen on Techcrunch reporting @readmill’s rejection of our $3.23 AUD offer.@mrconnorobrien @tullyhansen A part of me seriously wants to entertain the idea.

@dancounsell We actually switched from Campfire to Slack a few weeks ago. Loving it.@brentriddell Maybe they’re not really intended to sell, but up the expectations on what people will pay for their other stuff?@brentriddell I remember seeing some in that price range last time I was there. Ridiculous.

LGW ✈ SXF@aroncarroll Oh that might work, my friend lives in Prenzlauer Berg, might be able to drop off keys to her.@aroncarroll Ah, 9:00 wouldn’t be a problem, but I have a friend picking up some things at 10:30. Where are you meeting?@filmatu @bobettebuster Wow, seems like the @DoLectures were so long ago. I have such fond memories of those fateful five days.@aroncarroll Oh cool, is this ride fixie compatible? What time were you thinking of heading out?Conversation with @AdamWestbrook this morning encapsulates everything I love about the freedom to choose what one does with their time.@AdamWestbrook I’d retweet, but that would be rather egotistical.

@brentriddell @allyelle @harryfk Yes two. You had me at pop-up.@zachinglis Maybe @brentriddell? Either way, you guys should meet if you haven’t already.@slackhq I can’t take all the credit I’m afraid, it was @kilmc who originally tweeted about how awesome your product is!

@pharmerdan But yeah, the normal Senz is… big. I tend to only carry it if it’s raining when I leave the apartment.@pharmerdan They’re actually completely different umbrellas. It’s only the shape that’s similar.@pharmerdan If you buy one, get the full size Senz. The Minis tend to break easily.@pharmerdan I had a Senz Mini that broke and they gave me credit for a new one.@pharmerdan Yes I do. Thinking of getting one?

@brentriddell I’m probably the worst person to have around if you’re trying to quit meat unfortunately.@brentriddell If you ever come back to the fold, I’ll be there waiting with a schnitzel, Napoli sauce, ham, and cheese.@brentriddell Where’s the bloody chicken parma!? It’s funny, I only know two Australians in Berlin.

Sennheiser’s are probably the go then.@felix_cohen I keep hearing good things about Bowers & Wilkins: http://t.co/SHVHMTRjZO (handful of good headphone reviews on there also).Critical Faculties
