The Tweets of XOXO
This is a collection of tweets from the roughly 400 attendees over the 4 days of the XOXO Festival in Portland, Oregon.
We thought it might be interesting to revisit the weekend through the tweets of the participants.
Pick a day from above, then jump between events from the schedule to the left of the tweets.

Embedded iPads in the counter on the bar at this hotel.
Conference today! Doors 9:30, talks from 10:30. Stumptown getting the coffee started now, market vendors loading in, here we go!
After four days of travel dishevelment, finally cracked and bought a comb.
If Facebook's new iOS-native app is so "lightning-fast" then why is it so…slow?
Recovering from 6 miles on rollercoaster Wildwood trail above Portland.
A fruit bowl on the side spontaneously makes an eggs, sausage and hash brown breakfast healthy, right?
It's rare that a "quick question" is answered well quickly. It's also rare that the "question" part remains singular.
Going through my phone settings to try to work out any possible way to make it through one day without recharging.
True story: I was trying to hail a cab yesterday. Guy on bicycle stopped and said, "Yeah, that's not very Portland?"
Can someone start a band called Sex Rascals so I can make the t-shirts?
Also, while it looks odd, Johan Sebastian Joust is suuuuuper fun. I beat a little kid!
Counted 10 homeless people sleeping rough outside my hotel this morning. America: I find it difficult to believe that you are the greatest.
Just heard a 10 year old boy ask someone "Is that an Android phone? DROOIIIIDD!" So yeah that ad didn't work or anything.
apparently I met the mayor of Portland
OH: "Portland really is a beer town if they named their mayor after one."
what a handsome mayor. I hope you people appreciate him.
Mayor of Portland Sam Adams is on stage now, and boy is he a good speaker. Cares about tech and innovation too. Wonder what rent is like.
Non-badge holders: our market, hack/cafe and food carts are running all day on the ground floor of the YU, come check it out!
“Deadlines are not a feature.”
Got momentarily frightened by my own navel lint in the shower this morning. Looked like a leech. Not my proudest moment.
@xofest I'm going to kill you, really big wiggly head guy.
God I wish Kickstarter existed when I started Fray.
Write pile of notes for talk, use none of them. Genius.
That thing where you're totally underslept, but damn, it's worth it.
If the exact deadline date isn't obvious at the start of a project (ie. an election), you shouldn't make one up.
Stumptown Coffee you are delicious in my mouth. Can't wait for you to open up in LA!
Personal critique: I have yet to master being an introvert at a conference.
XOXO lunch today: If I had to recommend one thing, kélaguen mannok + titiyas at PDX 671. (If I had to recommend two, khao man gai).
I was really confused when the mayor of Portland wasn't Paul Atreides.
About to try @PDX671
Oh hey, Red & Black Cafe. I played a show in you once, a lifetime ago.
Aaaaand once again I find myself at Old Town, staring at that Gibson again…
Anybody know a service that will do one-off photo prints & ship via API? Kinda like “print” button on Flickr but for self-hosted photos.
Is it a thing yet to commemorate your fallen homies in your twitter bio? Or is that just for husbands, fathers, geeks?
You gotta admit it's pretty cool Bud Light named this 'The Year of the NFL Fan.' No one told them to do that—they just did it.
Bunk, pork belly cubano, coke. Hooray!
hey tall people! If you're gonna block my view, at least don't do it while also hunching over your laptop doing git pulls or whatever.
and it seems that after lunch is the time when the weird sleeping & jet lag catch up with me. soon it will improve with more coffee.
