To think, I was so careful to keep my secret project a secret!

Remember that mysterious professional/research project I've been doing during this six-month stay in the U.S.? The one I'd assumed I was supposed to keep confidential? Well, it turns out that the publisher has already posted it on Amazon. Lucky thing it's almost done! And I'm really pleased with how it's turning out. :D

On a related note, I made a couple of Twitter accounts this past week: chansonexmo and chexplore. I did it mostly because I'm writing a BlackBerry application that uses Twitter. However, while I'm on Twitter anyway, I'd like to know what's up with my blog friends. So, if you Twitter, please leave a comment with your Twitter name so I can follow you.

Follow me at your own risk, though! I'll be sending quite a lot of test tweets. I think I'll try to send most of the "Testing 1, 2" messages from "chexplore" and use "chansonexmo" (mostly) for real updates.

I'm following your chansonexmo account.

It's totally fun to say you have followers. Twitter makes us ALL religious leaders!

Excellent!!! This is fun! :D

you've already followed me (and I've already followed both your accounts), but I'm


Interesting stuff, although I don't have a BlackBerry, so if you'd like to get a Palm Pre or look at WebOS anytime, I'm here and can be a guinea pig, haha.

Hey Andrew!!!

Yeah, I'm following you too!

I may well branch out to Palm Pre. If so, I'd be happy to send you my test apps. ;^)

Every time I tell people I'm writing a book on BlackBerry programming, they always say it would be cooler if I were doing iPhone instead. I know all the cool kids are on iPhone, but that's why there are already about fifty books on the subject. BlackBerry is surprisingly underdocumented for how widespread it is. That's why I'm working on it. :D

Congrats on the book!! Is it typical for publishers to post books on amazon before they are completed?

PS. Good luck on palm pre!

I'm Saganist there, and I'm now following both of your accounts. I don't use Twitter much these days, but it can occasionally be a fun distraction.
