Arrived in Charlotte… barely

So I had this premonition/vision/whatever that I would be stopped by airport security… because of my T-shirt (a creative communist shirt from Giant Robot).

I was stopped by airport security, but not for my T-shirt. I was stopped, because I forgot I had my leatherman in my backpack. Understandably, they were a bit concerned that I had multiple 3 inch blades in my backpack, but it was an honest mistake. I’m told my honest mistake, if repeated, could cost me 4 digits (money, not fingers).

By the grace of God (I think) my shirt had funk on it (thanks for noticing John) so I changed. I think that may have saved my butt, as I barely made my plane. Trying to explain the complexities of copyleft, creative commons, Bill Gates, and the current state of intellectual property rights to a TSA worker would have taken awhile.

So anyways, I’m here at my good friend Steve’s house blogging on borrowed WiFi and my battery is dying, so I’m going to end it here. Tomorrow morning we head to Lynchburg for the conference. Stay tuned…

Trick of the Mind

I found this fascinating link on Del.icio.us today. it appears to be a UK TV show where Darren Brown does mind control (power of suggestion) tricks and shows people how gullible they can be… interesting stuff.

Jesus was downloaded so that we can be uploaded.

London’s St. Lukes church’s spoof iPod ad is quite clever.

In other news… you can iPod Your Photos for the low price of $19.95 each. Very fun.

Watch me for only $20

For the low, low price of $20 (or 1 easy payment of just $20) you can be a “Virtual Registrant” for the Internet Evangelism for the 21st Century conference. It happens this coming weekend!

You will have access to the workshops both in realtime streaming and from a video on demand service for at least 6 months.

That’s right, you can watch me (and many other great speakers) at your convenience for only $20.

How can you say no to that? (dial users are exempt from that last comment 😉

Anyways, I hope to see you… or have you see me… next weekend at the conceference. I will either succeed brilliantly or fail miserabley. Either way should be entertaining. The one think I hope I will not be… is intensely medicore.

Pray for me (I’ll need it!)

Finally. A podcast.

I shouldn’t beat myself up over my lack of podcasting lately, but I do.

I forget that I do podcast weekly (bluer).

However, I definitely bit off more than I could chew, and way more than what would fit into my already overstuffed life.

So it comes to this: bluer: weekly. ThoughtRefinery: monthly. Creative Church: blog more, podcast when appropriate.
