Ruminations on tech, the digital media, and some golf thrown in for good measure.

Happy Monday.

There’s been no end of excitement here in Austin the past few weeks.

First, we had a good ten days of SXSW. Then this weekend an apparently very exciting Indy Race.

And this week, the WGC returns to Austin Country Club for the Dell Technologies Match Play golf tournament.

It’s enough to make one want to send a telegram.

And BleekingComputer is reporting that one can do just that, with more privacy capability than ever, with the new and improved Telegram app.

Telegram announced today they have had added a feature that allows users to delete any message in a one-on-one chat and have ti be removed from both chat user’s devices.

This builds on the initial “unsend” feature which allowed users to remove any message they’d sent within the last 48 hours fromm both devices.

“Today, we are giving hundreds of millions of users complete control of any private conversation they have ever had,” Telegram stated in a blog post. “You can now choose to delete any message you have sent or received from both sides in any private chat. The messages will disappear for both you and the other person – without leaving a trace.”

I would imagine this feature will be very popular with journalists, whistleblowers, and human rights activists everywhere.

Countdown To Lotusphere

with one comment

All righty then.

The Dallas Cowboys won a playoff game for the first time since the 1996 season!  Woo hoo!

Cowboy haters everywhere are uniting as Americas team gets through the first round of the playoffs having beaten the Eagles two weeks in a row.

Even I couldn’t believe the surprise.

Next week, it looks as though I’ll be on a plane heading out to Orlando for Lotusphere during the Cowboys/Vikings game — but good news: I took the lowest fare and am flying JetBlue, which means DirectTV!  Woo Hoo!!

That’s what I get for being such a cost conscious foot soldier.

While I’m watching the game from 35,000 feet, you could be listening to (podcast, 10:14) Scott Laningham and I chat up our anticipation of covering the forthcoming Lotusphere.

In the podcast, we talk about our excitement regarding the now even more stringent security measures, but more importantly, an overview of some of the exciting events and must sees at Lotusphere, and what we hope to hear more about while on the ground in Orlando.

If you’re not attending (or even if you are), you can follow the tidings at the official Lotus Twitter hashtag #lotusknows as well as #ls10 where we expect to see many attendees and Lotus watchers posting as well.

In the meantime, leading into the event I’ll be pointing out some other key Lotus-relevant blogs to keep an eye out for.

Feel free to comment below to let Scott and I know more about what you would like to hear about coming out of Orlando.
