(formerly TweetSpeak, changed as to eliminate confusion with TweetSpeak.com) While I’m fond of the Twitter-as-water-cooler metaphor, there was something missing. Namely Twitter is quiet, and offices are filled with loud, distracting chatter. If you’re on a Mac you can now remedy this issue with TwitterCooler.app. TwitterCooler downloads your friends tweets and reads them to you […]

TwittergramHijacking is a little Applescript glue that makes it easy to send Twittergrams by connecting AudioHijackPro to Dave Winer‘s Twittergram service. More info at the TwittergramHijacking page. Thanks to Adario Strange at the Wired Epicenter blog for the link.
QSPress now supports categories. But, I’m on a funky hotel internet right now, so I won’t be able to upload the new version until I get home tomorrow. We can celebrate then. Yeah!!! It’s up: QSPress 10 May 2007
After Peter‘s request for a ‘play all’ in the SXSW pick list, I whipped up this Applescript that creates a .m3u, streaming playlist, file using TextMate. The toughest part was translating iTunes’ MM:SS formatted track time into seconds for M3U. MakeM3UFromiTunesPlaylistInTextMate.scpt
In preparation for declaring my picks from the 2007 SXSW Showcasing Artist tracks, I’ve put together an Applescript that pulls the track names, artists, ratings, and comments from an iTunes playlist and sends them to MarsEdit for blog posting.

This morning marks the completion of the first full backup I’ve done in quite a while. But not the last. For the past 3 months, I’ve been working on an automated backup system – so I no longer need to wonder if things are backed up. They are. In at least two places. A little […]
One of my biggest problems with podcasting is the production process. Even without editing the audio, the process is far too manual to repeat without inherent discouragement (65 podcasts in year 1 and 20 in year 2 should speak to that). In an effort to publish more and make podcasting as effortless as writing this […]
Not much more to say. Things really shouldn’t look different on your end.
I’m a big fan of MarsEdit, I use it for all my weblog posting. The other day, I was wondering about making any arbitrary text a Technorati Tag. The result was the Tag Maker Applescript for MarsEdit. It takes any selected text and appends a ‘(t)’ to it linking to the corresponding tag at Technorati, […]
