Another inspiring day at work in the life of a technology enthusiast in the year 2012.
Today I ran the social media stream for the iFixit twitter account while the Dozuki team (specifically Kyle Wiens) pitched the product at DEMO Spring 2012. It was really fun. I had a good setup on my two-screen setup at my desk, and I kept a pretty decent stream of content flowing the whole time.
After the initial presentation, I did some follow-up tweets and then decided to hold a giveaway contest: a free custom-laser-engraved iFixit 54 Bit Driver Kit to a randomly selected retweeter/mentioner of @Dozuki. I received a stack of entries, picked one at random by opening a separate browser tab for each entry, then tabbing through each with my head turned until I lost any notion of which tab I was on then stopped. I chose a gentleman from Portugal (who was a very happy and gracious winner), engraved his custom message with the laser cutter, and put it in a box and shipped it out. It was easy to do. I hope he enjoys it; no one else has a custom-engraved kit like that in the iFixit-sphere.
I got a free avocado from a new girl at work. We were chatting in the kitchen about this and that, and she offered it to me. Oops, and I forgot to take it out of my briefcase when I got home. I’ll just do that now…
