Tony - QuickPlace session at Lotusphere 2006
I would have posted a picture of myself speaking, too. But, somehow it didn't seem like taking a self-portrait in front of a 600+ crowd was the right thing to do. Especially considering Tony had posted a note on the podium next to the laptop the times each of us had to complete our portion of the talk. And, Tony was sitting next to the buttons to switch to another laptop's display. Tony obviously read a book on how to manage your manager.

Geek's Night Out at Lotusphere 2006
Ready for a night of partying with pocket protector filled with several kinds of mechanical pencils and pens, tape on glasses, and top shirt button buttoned. At the party, the real geeks got it. The rest of the folks thought I broke my glasses.
That's my Treo 600 in a Rhino Skin protective case.

This was taken last year and still on my Treo. Although the lighting isn't great, I think it captured a good smile.

Boot Verizon ads from your blog
Verizon charges us to send pictures from our phones, but doesn't give us an opt out from sending their ads. Sleezy advertizing! This is similar to spam. Shame on you Verizon.
For bloggers like me who want to prevent Verizon from invading our moblogs when we post images from our picture phones, there are two ways I know of. You can A) boot Verizon, or B) at the very end of your message, below the picture, add the hash mark (a.k.a. pound sign) and the word "end" (no space between hash sign and end). This will prevent Verizon's ad from being posted to Blogger.
That's a picture of my boot above, taken with my Treo 600. I'm flying at 34,004 feet as I write this, and listening to the blues on my Treo. My 1Gig SD card is filled to capacity with blues harp music - from Big Mamma Thorton to Willie Cobbs - many of the best harmonica players ever recorded.
BELOW IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT VERIZON TACKED ON TO MY MESSAGE. IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IF I HAD USED "#end" AT THE END OF MY MESSAGE
