Cool and Important Technology Tidbits

Twitter has an API that allows the development of some cool functionality, and one of those is the ability to travel into the future, tweet, then return to the present and wait for your tweet to happen.

Well, OK, that’s not exactly how it happens, but it is useful, and Damond Nollan has a post on why you would want to schedule your tweets and how to do it. Damond is an IT guy from North Carolina whom I met at a recent conference and both he and his blog are very cool.

Speaking of cool blogs, Linux in Exile discusses what happens on the command line when you type in a command that exists in theory but not on your computer. This is actually a remarkable and poignant example of why Linux is a superior operating system. Brings tears to my eyes, in fact. Please visit Command Not Found.

Ooo ooo ooo! It appears as thought Ubuntu might bundle Crossover, and they are asking your opinion on what non-linux apps you want to run on your Linux computer. The story is discussed here, and the survey appear to be here.

    I’m still not sure why you would want to tweet anyway, but i guess scheduling them is a nice option to have.
