What I do in my spare time

Today on Twitter there was the following from @KING5Seattle:

Anyone check your commute through @wsdot_traffic ‘s twitter stream? Let us know!

I responded, “I do! I do!”

This lead to me meeting Glenn Farley and a camera operator at a park-and-ride in Lynnwood to talk about using Twitter for navigating Seattle traffic. I was the lucky person from several that responded. Maybe it was because I said I would come on my motorcycle?

Most of the interview was how have used @wsdot_traffic and my BlackBerry to keep in touch. We also discussed using Twitter while driving (illegal for driver in Washington State) and the 5-1-1 telephone service provided by the Washington Department of Transportation.

I think they used more of the shots of me using TwitterBerry on my BlackBerry.

I’ve had my 15 seconds of fame.

Watch the story from the KING5 website.
