POTW: Llama Drama

The great llama race

 

Yep, that’s my buddy Josh… and Nacho (the one on the left).  Why are they getting all snugglie?  Logical question.

Yesterday was The Great Llama Race here in Knoxville, TN, and I have to say it was quite entertaining.  The Great Llama Race was put on by a local organization to help local schools as well as a very special school in Bolivia (read more about Casa De Sara here).  The llama is the national animal of Bolivia… thus the reason for the llamas.  The idea is that local businesses would sponsor a llama for a local school, who would then help dress the llama up, and then a local celebrity would run with the llama in a race (which if you know anything about llamas… this could get ugly).  The winning schools get money for special programs, and the school in Bolivia benefits from all the fund raising.  Really fun idea.

Back to Josh and Nacho; Nacho was the llama that the company I work for, Claris Networks, sponsored for the Paideia Academy.  Josh, not one to miss out on a perfect photo opportunity, decided to ham it up with our boy.  Seem random?  Yep, it is.

Twitter Making New Changes

Have you installed the latest version of the Twitter app for iPhone or Android? If you have, you may have noticed that you can now tag people in photos… pretty cool feature. You can tag up to 4 people in the photos and those tags don’t eat into your 140 characters, which is nice. People who have been tagged receive a notification similar to when you @reply them. Don’t want you tagging people in their photos? Go to your account settings and click on the “Who can tag me in photos” button. You’ll be able to choose between Anyone (literally), Only people I follow (my current setting), or just Off altogether. If you have your profile set to private, no one can tag you in photos by default. I have to admit, I don’t typically use the Twitter app, I like Plume a little better… however, these new changes have me using it again. Check it out and let me know what you think.

What else does Twitter have up its sleeve? Check out the video above from a recent WBIR appearance for more info!
