Aloha, oy!

We alllllmost all showed up on time this week! (BTdubs, if you’re ever right on time at 6:48am, and can’t find us, we usually congregate to the left of the entrance, in the window seats.)

I'm coming, I'm coming!

I’m coming, I’m coming!

We’re all really nice! See? (don’t mind the alien morphing that pano pics do…)

bkftsclub pano time!

bkftsclub pano time! @tamarajcollins, @walterelly, @starshaped, @dkanenh, @beccamoreorless, and @laughtercrystal

This was @starshaped‘s last bkfstclub, as she and @thesleepyvegan are off on a road trip to Portland, OR, to LIVE. Happy trails, Aubrey!

aww, pal pic! Aubrey gave Walter this shirt back in THE DAY.

Also, @halie_olsz totally got flavored cream cheese at 7:45, and *I* didn’t—at 6:48am, they were OUT of everything but plain cream cheese.

So. A meme, entitled:

SO THE EARLY BIRD DOES NOT GET THE WORM AFTER ALL!

Credit to @walterelly for helping me pick which meme pic. I think he chose right.

We were JUST late enough to not be able to snag our regular corner window tables this morning, so we had a #portsbkfstclub in the middle of the Works. @Tim_shank told us about his awesome new podcast endeavor—check it out!

@bouchermedia showed us the kickass UNH app, which wasn’t new, but was new to @laughtercrystal, who thought it was RAD! You can watch real-time bus routes and see exactly where the buses are as you are waiting for them—or running out the door.

Fun times at portsbkfstclub this morning!

Just before Halloween, we of COURSE discussed the Halloween Parade, and I Could Just Diary, which founder @laughtercrystal is performing in this evening. What could be scarier than standing up in front of an audience, onstage at the Rep, and reading your heartfelt teenage diary entries?

Also took the opportunity to shoot a few short videos this morn.:

@MyFriendDan shows us Videolicious—a cool video tool for the iPhone:

What did we learn this morning?:

See you next Wednesday!

Some of the things discussed today:

  • @tim_shank‘s #talkmoney podcast aired yesterday! Podcast to be posted soon—he’s currently using PodBean, but is looking for a platform with better social sharing capabilities. @monte_bohanan suggested SoundCloud.
  • The Music Hall Loft is having a Hitchcock retrospective! Eight of his most beloved films, playing chronologically throughout the month of August—twice! Stay tuned at themusichall.org for the announcement of dates!
  • Email newsletters & guest bloggers—how do you decide how often, who to involve, and what to say?

* Medium:  “Medium is a new place on the Internet where people share ideas and stories that are longer than 140 characters and not just for friends” … what (if anything) will set this network apart?

* Yahoo is KILLING it! First Tumblr., now Flickr upgrade—WHOA! I’d buy a Yahoo PHONE at this point. You heard me!

WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO FLICKR

* Flipboard isn’t just for iPads—who knew? Not I! Super awesome and full of WIN!

* You’d think as a grammar aficionado, I’d know things like Tumblr.‘s period is a part of their name…

* New protocol for #4sqFriday! Sign up HERE and when we reach at least 4, it’ll happen! See you at the court!

@zumbaholic85 , @angiemlombard, and @monte_bohanan

 

Things discussed at #portsbkfstclub this week included:

  • Of course, we talked more about Mailbox App—@Zumbaholic85 imported her 3500+ Archive and was down to 900 at the start of breakfast club. And then down to 700-ish by the END of bkfstclub!
  • Speaking of email, @laughtercrystal wondered why the hell it wasn’t super easy to simply schedule an email to be sent at a later time/date. @zumbaholic85 found Right Inbox, which does exactly that (anyone out there tried that yet? Have other email schedulers to recommend?).
  • #portsbkfstclub turned into #portscookieclub—@angiemlombard had Girl Scout Cookies for those who ordered them! Their cookie magnetism successfully pulled @walterelly from Madbury allllll the way to The Works!
  • With @laughtercrystal’s upcoming trip to Hawai’i, we discussed battery life quite a bit. She considered resigning herself to an unplugged vacation, but @zumbaholic85handed over her Mophie, so now everyone will just have to deal with all the beach pics, and also the Foursquare leaderboard is going to be p0wned! #dropsthemic
  • Discussed mic-dropping #dropsthemic (Also this presidential greatness: Obama slow jams the news, drops mic.)
  • Songza/Rdio/Spotify (@dougridley reminds us of the greatness of Songza, your music concierge; @laughtercrystal prefers Rdio to other music services like Spotify)
  • How does one choose what books to pack when going on vacation? How would you anticipate which reading MOOD you’ll be in? There should be a book concierge service! (Get on that, @missliberty!)
  • @thesleepyvegan even woke up and joined us briefly!

Nice big crowd this morning for #portsbkfstclub!

Here are some things we discussed:

@derbsworld announced the news that @melsieburger is the new Overlord (President) of Seacoast Social Media! Yay! We decided to hum Hail to the Chief for her, but quickly thought better and went with The Imperial March. (Cuz #starwarsrules, right Cian?)

Mailbox app (no #portsbkfstclub-ers are officially in yet, but we’re all very excited! @d0nkeyBOB tells us great things about it!) @walterelly was convinced to get in line upon hearing about the “resend to me later today/tomorrow/this weekend” feature.

—Did you know that Feb 13th is “ValenSWINE’s Day”? (If you did know, we have more questions to ask you…) Thanks to @dougridley for that tidbit. It was also decided that Gilley’s was the restaurant of choice for Portsmouth’s Valenswine’s-ers.

@carleric is teaching a comprehensive WordPress class this Saturday! It’s at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth, and you can sign up HERE: http://wp-mentor.com/ Carl is also involved with @alpha_loft‘s WordPress Web Dev Meetup group!

@walterelly got this shot of @monte_bohanan, @melsieburger, and @laughtercrystal doing a @dougridley pose!

—@molly_taaffe told us about this cool Mental Floss post about the 11-yr-old girl who named Pluto. We were glad she never knew about it’s being downgraded from planet status… It’ll always be a planet to her. And for some of us.

—How To Conjugate Your Apps! @monte_bohanan shared a cool way to arrange your iPhone/iPad apps—conjugation! He mentioned a blog post (this one?) that suggested you group apps by the verb of what you do with that app. For example, “Photograph,” “Listen,” “Watch,” “Share,” etc..

@IdeaGreenhousNH tweeted this genius and caused many LOLs and a few RTs… later we found out it was the marketing genius of a toddler! We can all learn a little something from this, I think.

—In other @SeacoastSocial news, @bouchermedia posted this great #vineapp video last night of the SSM leadership advisory board panel group directing you to seacoastsocial.org!

@ashley_ridley and @dougridley shared THIS amazing (and oh, so simple!) hack to take panoramic shots on your iPhone from left to right WIHTOUT turning your phone upside down! Ashley already knew about it when Doug discovered it, for the record.

yeti

Thanks, @ashley_ridley & @dougridley!

@monte_bohanan told us about Eric Reuter‘s cool stereoscopic photo posts on Facebook (please be our friend, Eric, so we can see them, too!) that made most of us make very silly faces trying to cross our eyes to see it properly!

@derbsworld always wondered why the AppleTV isn’t called iTV. We all thought this was a great question. @Monte_Bohanan knew the answer: iTV is a station in England!

Post-bkfstclub, @Monte_Bohanan reminded us also of THIS cool upcoming event!:

Innovation & Leadership Forum: Creating a Healthy Work Culture, featuring our pals at Mad*Pow at The Music Hall Loft!

See you all next week!

P.S. If you would be interested in signing up for email notifications about new recap posts, Tuesday afternoon #ReminderBeetle reminders, etc., let me know in the comments! I am in the process of setting up an email listing.
