First post from 38K feet

I'm on an American Airlines flight from New York to San Francisco. It has wifi from Gogo Inflight.  Permalink to this paragraph

Aside from immediately posting a note on Twitter, I checked to see if it had enough bandwidth to access my Slingbox, and it does. I'm listening to the roundtable on This Week while I write this. Permalink to this paragraph

Before we left I took a picture of the plane and uploaded it. Maybe later I'll take some morepics .  Permalink to this paragraph

I got a special offer of 25 percent off the $12.95 price. Permalink to this paragraph

All the more reason for American Airlines to have clip art for blog posts now that we're going to be blogging from the air. Permalink to this paragraph

According to Speakeasy, I'm getting 1201 kbps up and 269 down.  Permalink to this paragraph
