Refresh and the restroom

Last night I attended my 2nd Refresh Phoenix meeting.  And of course the after party, where there occurred, among other things, a rather odd moment…

tweet tweet “sittin in Ling & Louie’s when a man walks thru the dining room carryin a toilet. how bizzare!”

Of course much bathroom related commentary and humor ensued.  But also reminded me of this:

Fellas, how’d ya like to use this bathroom?  Would it boost your ego?  Or make you self-conscious?  I tend to like bathrooms, at least the cool and unusual ones.  And I find the concept rather amusing.  😉

Now, fun stuff aside, I’d be remiss if I didn’t actually talk about Refresh, especially as it was demo night and there were some interesting, and fun (yes, more fun) stuff presented.  As I was late, I only caught a few.  Of particular interest (to me of course):

1) Erica Lucci (@EricaLucci) of Integrum Technologies presented Read Phoenix, an aggregator of blogs and bloggers in the Phoenix.  (I’ll add myself one day, i.e. when I’m blogging with more frequency and value…perhaps when I publish a draft of a time map project that’s been incubating for two weeks.)

2) Brian Shaler (@brianshaler) presented XID, a tool for locating and engaging friends on multiple platforms by creating a linked list of a user’s web presence.  XID is still in development, but Brian regularly provides updates on the XID Development Blog.  (Def excited…can’t wait for launch.)

3)  Matt Gist (@aparticularpath) and Matt Heidemann (@heidmotron) presented nehmehyeh, an app that allows users to record their moods everyday of the year.  It’s a different spin on Flicker365 and other apps and groups centered around self-portraiture.  (This may find it’s way into my time map project.)

There were doubtlessly other great ideas and projects demoed (check out the list on the Refresh site).  I’ve heard a bit about DurtBagz and am disappointed I missed their presentation.

*If anyone can has other links I can attach to any of these folks, holla.
