" It promises to be a parsimonious solution to the age-old problem of preventing unwanted pregnancies. This is nothing short of Occam’s razor for your testicles. While the way Vasalgel works inside a man’s body might be simple, its cultural impact would be complex. The Religious Right, in particular, has grown accustomed to a world in which regulating access to birth control means regulating women’s bodies, rather than men’s bodies." - Steve C Team Marina

I am WAITING for the day that a birth control story discusses the ongoing need for safe, legal, affordable abortions AND the need for pre and postnatal care, parental leave, and affordable child care. Hasn't happened yet, though, because everyone suffers under the illusion that if everyone just had birth control, there'd be no problems. - laura x from iPhone

In hindsight, we should have pitched FF to our friends as "beautiful and ad free".
We still can. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Also, I think FF and Ello are both behind for not having native phone apps. FF, well, it was designed slightly before the smartphone era and acquired by FB before smartphones became so dominant. Ello, ... Ello feels like a boutique product that doesn't fit anyone but its own designers that well. - Andrew C (✔)
And of course FF now has one problem that Ello doesn't. Both may be ad-free, but I think the point of people who tried/are trying to move from FB to Ello is that they are fleeing FB, and well, FF is owned by FB. - Andrew C (✔)
One of the features that would be a good sell but is broken is the Twitter integration. In a fit of pique, I took my Twitter account off. When I tried to re-add it, it didn't work. I just realized it would be great if I had favorites coming in because Twitter's own interface makes it difficult to search through favorites (which I use like bookmarking). - Spidra Webster
Perhaps with a big enough uptick in traffic we could prompt FB to rebrand FF as FB's answer to Ello. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I think they would just shut it off if it got too busy. There is no hope that FB will revive FF. None. - Eric - It's My Thing
Coke still runs Diet Coke in addition to Coke Zero. (and also TAB in addition to Diet Coke... and Coke Zero.) Sometimes it pays to have multiple brands. Or see also Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic. Or more relevant, FB and Instagram. - Andrew C (✔)
I can't believe we're still having a conversation about FF as an ongoing network maintained with new features. It's not going to happen! - Eric - It's My Thing
History has shown that nothing seems to be able to stop us. We've all been forgotten about, switched off, you name it. FF - still here! - Iain Baker
Listen, I love this place. You know that. But let's not fool ourselves. It's nice, but attempting to grow it won't change what has already happened and how we just keep on with the help on FB engineers in their spare time. Do I wish they could bring it back? Sure. But come on everyone. Let's be realistic. - Eric - It's My Thing
Not saying it's realistic. Just ping ponging off of the OP and Stephen's first comment. FF's state is well known and well established. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
We're the social media version of morse code - an unseen heartbeat. Yeah, we're archaic, but if we were ever silenced, we'd be missed. - Iain Baker
I think we'd miss us but I don't think anyone in the tech world would care. Just a small blurb on Mashable or some other news site when they finally pull the plug for good. That's it. Count on it. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I remember trying to get people of FF and they just didn't get it. They were already on FB and/or Twitter and just didn't get real-time, pulling in RSS, and now those features are pined for on other platforms. It's a testament of the forward looking people on this project that it's still standing and working as intended for the most part. - Eric - It's My Thing
Yeah I had similar experiences. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It just clicks for some folks. Others not so much. I came here based upon a post by Jason Toney on Negroplease.com back in the day. It took a little while to get my bearings. I didn't really hit FF hardcore until I was out of work about a year later. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
My experience with Ello so far is that there isn't much user content, one of the few comments I did make either never got posted even though it seemed to, it's not actually beautiful or even pleasant to look at -- even the Tumblr and FF feeds are better -- just overall, they launched wide access way too early. - Andrew C (✔)
Agreed. For photo posting, it's gorgeous. It has nothing else, though. Except active development. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, well, I rarely do anything with photos. Probably why I'm not on Instagram. - Andrew C (✔)
Same here with Ello. How is this the next gen of social? It doesn't even work yet. - Eric - It's My Thing
Ello already has spam. But so does FF so.. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Phoenix Suns to Morris brothers: Here's 52 million. You split it up. - Bright Side Of The Sun
"With the agreement of managing partner Robert Sarver and GM Ryan McDonough, he offered a total of $52 million over 4 years to the brothers as a package deal, and asked them to split it how they wanted. [...] "I did something I've never done before," Lon Babby said to Bright Side of the Morris negotiations. "Once we agreed on the amount of money, I gave them the first crack at how to divide it up."" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Somehow, the brothers agreed to a split pretty quickly and it wasn't even right down the middle. Markieff gets $8 million per year, while Marcus gets $5 million per year. Keef put up 13 and 6 in 26 minutes per game last year, while Marcus put up 10 and 4 in 20 minutes. This year, Markieff is slated to start at power forward, backed up by brother Marcus. Keef can slide to the center... more... - Andrew C (✔)

UK Man Jailed For Tweeting Rape Threats In Response To Jane Austen Banknote Campaign | The Mary Sue
"Thankfully, starting yesterday Nunn began serving 18 weeks of jail time under section 127 of the Communications Act, which outlaws electronic messages which are “grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene, or menacing character.” According to The Guardian, Judge Elizabeth Roscoe said she considered a different sentence to avoid impacting Nunn’s three-year-old daughter but chose instead to send a strong message about the punishment for online harassment: 'It was really all about you and your opinions and what you wanted to do. Although we’re only talking about six tweets, it was persistent [...] There is no reason to suspend it. I’m not convinced that that would give the message that this is entirely unacceptable'." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"I don’t want to belabor the Jane Austen connection in this story since the main take-away here should be Creasey’s point that harassment via any medium is unacceptable, but it pleases me to no end that a man who simply could not handle seeing a successful woman on his money is being made an example of by a female judge and Member of Parliament. That being said, 18 weeks hardly seems... more... - Jessie
