I don't want swine flu, but I also don't want to be injected with something invented just a month or two ago.
totally agree - Edgar Rodríguez
I also heard on the news that it's just a watered down version of the virus, and not recommended for pregnant women or people with weak immune systems. That just doesn't sound safe to me... - Georgia
No, only the nasal spray is a live vaccine. The shots that will be given are a dead vaccine. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I thought quite a few vaccines were done with live viruses. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
oh ok, thanks Alex - Georgia
I heard this on NPR yesterday, which addresses the concerns you've raised as well as several others: http://www.npr.org/templat... - Paul Wilcox
From the piece I just posted: "First concern: some people are afraid the new vaccine isn't safe: it hasn't been tested enough, they rushed to make it too quickly, I don't want to be a guinea pig. Wrong. This new vaccine was made the same way, with the same ingredients, at the same factories, as regular seasonal flu vaccine, which is an extremely safe vaccine. There has been no evidence... more... - Paul Wilcox
Great way of putting it. - Kai
Paul, you beat me to it -- I was going to quote that as well. There are some good FAQs about this at WebMD: http://www.webmd.com/cold-an... - Stephen Mack
Georgia, almost every vaccine is a "watered down version of the virus" -- that's the whole idea behind vaccines. From that FAQ: "The FluMist nasal spray works differently. It contains a live flu virus that has been weakened to the point that it can't cause the flu. That sounds pretty scary, but millions of people have safely taken this kind of vaccine. The advantage of the nasal spray... more... - Stephen Mack
But would you want to be riding around downtown San Francisco in your Mustang with your German Shephard hunting deer and avoiding zombies? Just get the shot like the rest of us. - Ken Sheppardson
There are basically two types of flu vaccine we use: killed inactivated virus and live attenuated virus. Killed inactivated virus can't actually cause disease (although some people can feel symptomatic because the immune response can make you feel sick anyway.) In theory, live attenuated virus can actually cause disease, although it's not going to be as severe as the actual virus, and it also generates a better immune response. - Victor Ganata
But, as everyone else has already said, the H1N1 vaccine is generated by the same techniques they use for the regular seasonal flu vaccine. - Victor Ganata
Not saying I agree, but here's a story that questions the efficacy of flu vaccines in general. http://www.theatlantic.com/doc... - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Money quote: "Jackson’s findings showed that outside of flu season, the baseline risk of death among people who did not get vaccinated was approximately 60 percent higher than among those who did, lending support to the hypothesis that on average, healthy people chose to get the vaccine, while the “frail elderly” didn’t or couldn’t. In fact, the healthy-user effect explained the entire... more... - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I take an immune suppressing drug to treat my Crohns so my Docs always recommend a flu shot and I take them but frankly I feel like I'd get the same effect by a lighting a candle at the cathedral - WarLord
As far as vaccines go, like if you compare it to polio or the measles, it isn't that great. Still, it be interesting to see the data in other at-risk populations, like ex-premies and kids with asthma, and adults with certain chronic diseases, populations in which the pathophysiology is a lot more specific than in the elderly. And while it might not do much for the average healthy individual, I wonder if it at least cuts down on transmission. - Victor Ganata
The older I get, the more I love flu shots. I hope that the last time I had the flu as an adult (long time ago, now) was the last time, ever. Who can trade away weeks of productivity and engagement for that long miserable time of pain and fever followed by feeling like a jellyfish? Too awful. Already got my regular shot, and will happily go for the H1N1 shot, as well. Few more years, and I'll get to add the pneumonia shot to the mix, too. Bless you, scientists. - Kathy Fitch
Know what you mean Kevin. - Hutch Carpenter
++Kathy. Science Rocks! If only the H1N1 vaccine were available in the Bay Area... *sigh* - EricaJoy
Wash you're hands a lot! Look you've been fine so far right? - orionstarr from iPhone
Lots of Purell. No large crowds. :) I do actually want to go to parties again at some point. - EricaJoy from IM
Kevin, I'm inclined to agree with you. I also read something recently, but have misplaced, that the virus was mutating and that the current vaccine may not be as effective as first thought. Don't quote me on that until I can find it. I'm with WarLord. I have a weak immune system and I would just as soon take occillcoxcinum and just use sensible precautions. - Melanie Reed
I'm with Paul Wilcox on this one. The reason why it has been invented "just one or two months ago" is because it passed the *administrative* processes very quickly (without all the usual red-tape for regulating therapeutic goods). Otherwise, the vaccine has succeeded all the usual clinical trials. At least that's what French officials (from many health organizations) are saying. - Jérôme
it appeared in the 1970's (http://diseases-viruses.suite101.com/article...), there shoulda been no reason to "rush" a vaccine for this, :( - chaz2b
It actually first appeared in 1918. The 2009 strain is different enough from the 1970s one that vaccines developed then wouldn't be effective. - EricaJoy from IM
we wont know since the 70s version was never distributed - chaz2b
You don't think they tested it? - EricaJoy from IM
no, i think it was a hurrried endeavor like now, and when the talk of mandatory vaccination spread, ppl panicked, and it was shelved - chaz2b
Chaz, I don't understand your article: what does it show? Otherwise, it reminds us that the 1918 flu caused 50 to 100M deaths and got probably 500M people infected. With similar ratio for today's world, that would be 200M deaths and over 2B infections :( - Jérôme
i'm just showing that this isnt the first time we've encountered this - chaz2b
I remember that chazz2b. And also, there are a lot of people right now who I'll bet can't even afford the $25 I saw Kroger was charging. - Melanie Reed
thats my mnain concern about it, the cost & long term effects on ppl. and, if we encountered it in the 70s theres no reason the vaccine wasnt better tested and on hand for now, :( who among us has a small pox scar, who doesnt, and who thinks there isnt stockpiles of that vaccination sitting somewhere? - chaz2b
Chaz, the point is that the pandemic is expected to happen this fall and we can't wait & see the long term effects if it mutes and become as deadly as the 1918 one. If you were responsible for the WHO, what would you recommend? And what would you think if most people think they would prefer to wait and see? - Jérôme
i cant find the article i'm looking for on the fly, so i'll wing it, wash you hands, use hand sanitizer, stay away from sick ppl, stay home if sick, and cough into your shoulder for starters - chaz2b
lol, the cdc page about swine flu facts is currently down, so thats not helping (http://www.cdc.gov/flu...) - chaz2b
hey, just search "flu" on my posts, i've got quite allot of bookings about this dating back to april - chaz2b
Point taken. The vaccine is not going to supplant universal precautions as a way to avoid the flu. - Victor Ganata
Wouldn't worry about it, had swineflu back in July and it's one of the mildest forms of flu I've had, didn't cause me any problems with my asthma but did linger around for a few days... - Andy Davies
It's no different then getting the regular flu shot-the only reason it is separate from the regular one is that they didn't have time to combine them. If you are at risk-get your friggin shot. - Kelly W.
Flu can be a brutal thing, and it's unpredictable. I'm sticking my arm out there for all available shots that help protect against it, even if that protection might not be total or perfect! Hit me up, needle wielders! - Kathy Fitch
For those of you who decide to take the flu vaccine, please check at your university (if you are still student or staff) because the CDC has made them priority and you can get it for free: http://www.iupui.edu/~prepar... - Melanie Reed
Get the vaccine. The first night swine flu hit me, my heart started racing and I stopped breathing. I'm 22, and otherwise completely healthy. (on no medications) - Jess Dennis from iPhone
Yikes! - Mark Harai
Regular flu shot contains 4 different flu virus strains. If H1N1 had been prepared just 2 months earlier, it would have been included in this seasons' shot (all 5 strains in 1 shot) rather than a separate shot. Hysteria over vaccinations amazes me and damages public health. The world got punked by a fraudulent study on Autism and Vaccines in the UK paid for my lawyers cruising for money and almost 2 decades later, we are still seeing drops in people vaccinating their children. - Ray Cromwell
+1 Ray. Vaccines are safe, hands down. The autism-vaccine hysteria is so frustrating - no matter how much the link is disproved, the vaccine deniers keep pushing it (Jenny McCarthy, Jim Carrey, etc.) They took all the thimerosal out of the vaccines which was the crux of their original argument, but they'll always find something in there that they don't like. (i assume you meant "paid... more... - Matt M (inactive)
Their argument is vaccines are up, autism is up, and they both happened at the same time. Even though all three of those "facts" are actually untrue. (Vaccines are flat, autism is arguably down even though measurement is up, and they didn't actually happen at the same time.) - Stephen Mack
I would also expect that with radical changes in our living (having kids at later age, working moms, more stress, sedentary lifestyle, dietary alterations like sugar intake way up) that there is bound to be some changes in early childhood diseases. We had our first child at 33, our risk of trisomy/downs syndrome was 1 in 240 at that point. - Ray Cromwell
I find that this fear of vaccines comes from the generation that doesn't have personal memories of the sanitoriums of iron lungs - toddlers with braces and crutches and the like. The real problem with your decision not to take the flu shot is that it will probably influence the decision of those closest to you. The whole concept of "herd" theory then is out the door - because the one... more... - Robyn Hawk
Certainly, there's nothing like an outbreak to convince people to vaccinate. After we had the measles outbreak in San Diego, I heard vaccination rates went back up to levels where we could maintain herd immunity. Seriously, it would truly suck if polio made a come-back. - Victor Ganata
Victor, isn't it true that some illnesses are more easily controlled through vaccines that others? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Mike: I am sure google is not fool enough to make private docs public. - Sunny (The Geek Lord)
agreed but the title implies that (or rather doesn't make it clear) - mike "glemak" dunn
Yikes! - Mark Harai

maybe ask someone to build a new service called baby.fm for JUST twitter style messages re: babies. you and louis gray could fill that mofo up! - drew olanoff
Heheh. No, what happens is if you don't announce it then the family just keeps bugging you until they know what's going on. - Robert Scoble
i disagree with doing this. but i respect anyone who want to share this publicly :) - Ouriel Ohayon
baby.fm/scobles - drew olanoff
i will just wait for the kid's growing up so that he can tweet himself.. kekeh :) - RICK CHOI
The problem is the family will likely to be the last to know if you use the web... Grandma does not check twitter very often! - Ben
Definitely Facebook statuses. That's what all my friends did when their baby showed up! :) You kinda don't want the world to know... just the people who know you! - Jackie Miao
Better yet, on baby.fm, friends and family can follow you and choose how they want the alert. - drew olanoff
sms to family + twitter. family proceeded to spread rumors on facebook, saving us the trouble. - Leyla M
Have Kanye interrupt... worked for him - Johnny
Justin.TV Stream it live! *just kidding* - Adam Jackson
Keep it simple - Facebook and Twitter - Mike Doeff
What about something like: http://hasthelargehadroncollid... - Johnny
i second US mail. i have a copy of one that my parents sent out when i was born and it's pretty meaningful to me :) - Alexis Hope
johnny, i love that. haha. - Alexis Hope
email broadcast :) - esaarem
Jackie: actually letting the world know last time on Twitter was really great. Lots of people follow us and want to know what's up. - Robert Scoble
Probably a combination twitter and PicasaWeb. - Adam Martin
Anyway, looks like the baby has a good chance of coming Saturday. - Robert Scoble
Drew: baby.fm is a bad URL. Are you sure about that? - Robert Scoble
Robert, make sure to enjoy the moment! - Mike Doeff
Mike: the moment is always fun and crazy. Looking at the pictures of Milan I can't believe that was just two years ago. Time is going too fast! - Robert Scoble
Email Gallery to Posterous >> E V E R Y W H E R E - Tanner Powell
Robert, I just told Alan Levy, their CEO, to contact you about a new product they're working on that would work well for that. - Jesse Stay
Jesse: Cinch will have potentially the same problem that twittergram had. How do you know they will still be in business five years from now? - Robert Scoble
But I do like BlogTalkRadio and hope they do stick around and would love to use them for Ryan's birth. - Robert Scoble
Robert, it's RSS, and the audio's downloadable. You can back it all up. - Jesse Stay
Your Google Reader will have backups. So will FriendFeed (assuming it's around) - Jesse Stay
Jesse: yeah, right. Audio on my hard drive is lame compared to audio on the Internet. - Robert Scoble
Robert, Google Reader and FriendFeed aren't on your hard drive. :-) - Jesse Stay
That's the same problem with any company you do something like that with - it's up to you to have backups in place to be sure your data stays around after they go away. - Jesse Stay
Jesse: quick: find that audio on my Google Reader. You can't. FriendFeed wasn't even in existence when Milan was born. Shows how fast this industry moves. - Robert Scoble
That's why you've got to add it to your Google Reader, or save it as a backup. - Jesse Stay
The highest bidder? - Andrew Warner from iPhone
Jesse: what's funny is I rarely use Google Reader today. It's so slow for me that I can't bear to open it up. - Robert Scoble
It makes a good backup though, and Google will be around for awhile :-) - Jesse Stay
Jesse: remember Google's Dodgeball? So much for being around for awhile. - Robert Scoble
Robert, that risk is with everything you do online, which is why you can't use that for an excuse. If you want a backup, put it on disk somewhere, which is what Cinch allows you to do. At least it automates the distribution for you though. - Jesse Stay
Have Rackspace set up a script that reads the RSS from cinch and stores each file on a backup somewhere. Or trust Cinch to do that. Or do it manually. RSS is the most basic form of distribution so you can do what you want with it. - Jesse Stay
Note that I have no financial obligation to Cinch - I just like Alan Levy. He took me and Dave Winer to a Mets game while I was out there. :-) - Jesse Stay
I also like the basic premise - it's nice and open and easy to work with at the very basic level. - Jesse Stay
Use 'em all - phone calls, sms, Twitter, Facebook, FF, blog post, etc. I'd love to get cards printed up and send them out, but dang, that would get expensive at 55c per card just for postage, plus when do you find time with a newborn in the house? - Melly Claus #anticaper
Robert: Twitter's not mainstream in SE Asia yet. I've observed that most folks here are still relying on Facebook to reach out. Twitter works great for public figures who engage generously with their followers like yourself, though I wonder if that works as well for career network marketers with 15k+ followers. I don't think most of their followers actually care... I think regional... more... - Jackie Miao
Jesse: the thing is if you can't get to your items it doesn't matter that you have them backed up. Everyone's Tweets are still online, but no one can get to them. Backups won't help. - Robert Scoble
Robert, you can get them when they come out. Remember your blog? Again, with anything you store it's your responsibility to make sure you get a backup. Also, if you talk to Alan Levy you may like what he's working on - it may solve some of your concerns. - Jesse Stay
FWIW I lost the first cries of my baby as well - need to ask Alan if they still have backups. I was stupid for not downloading it at the time. - Jesse Stay
My Ustreams of it all are still up though: http://staynalive.com/article... (just the before and after shots, don't worry) - Jesse Stay
Ustream is extremely hard to backup - I wish they provided RSS like Cinch. - Jesse Stay
Jesse: oh, that's right, wasn't Twittergram a service of BlogTalkRadio? - Robert Scoble
twitter of course! Then we'll all know exactly the same time as you! LOL - Technogran
Oh and Ben, this Granny checks twitter all the time! - Technogran
Robert, yeah - they did Twittergram, and are now shifting that focus to Cinch in a much less platform-reliant manner - Jesse Stay
Jesse: can you ask them about Twittergram? It would be nice to get that MP3 out of the system. - Robert Scoble
Use the oral/aural tradition. Write a poem or a song. Play, speak or sing it. Record it. Publish it everywhere, everyway. It will be heard and remembered. The media will not be the message. The message will be the message. - David Newman from iPhone
David: If I were a poet or a songwriter, that's what I would do. I'm not. But I can take video, shoot pictures, and write. So that's what I'll do. - Robert Scoble
The local paper, to be sure that the baby can survive Birthers when he's up for the presidency. - Kevin Fox
Robert yeah - thanks for reminding me btw. I want to get my baby's first cries out of there as well. :-) I'll ask Alan. - Jesse Stay
I forgot to get a copy of the local paper for our last baby. I was too focused online. He'll be the only one of our kids without one. I keep kicking myself for that! - Jesse Stay
Tyson, @maryamie held a contest among our close friends. Most of them thought it would happen next week. Ryan's due date is September 26th. But looks like it might happen Saturday. They are pulling us in for a procedure and they said it will probably start the process on Saturday. We will know by noon on Saturday, though, what's up. - Robert Scoble
The baby will be a boy or girl? - Jannifer @wordsforliving
Jannifer: it's a boy. His name will be Ryan Soroush Scoble. Yes, RSS. - Robert Scoble
OH that is awesome!!! - Jannifer @wordsforliving
Tyson: and Milan's initials are MS and his middle name is William, same as Gates' first name (and my dad's). So how's that for geekdom! :-) - Robert Scoble
The Pony Express! - Johan Bakken
Tyson: I doubt this conversation will last online until he's old enough to care about looking back. - Robert Scoble
it is perhaps that i am developing a luddite side but it seems such a strange question to ask - put it in one place and it will cascade naturally everywhere anyway, and I imagine you'll be busy with real in person things... PS: or make someone's day and use a service you dont use much or havent used yet... - Iphigenie
If you have to do it online email. - Crispin Heath
You should go with some form of SAP installation. - Rich Puskarich
Alternative thought: Let Maryam decide. - Sue
Don't say a thing online. Tell your friends and see how long it takes to 'leak' online. - Andrew Leyden
@qik & a Flip camera? Qik will go to Youtube automatically, tell twitter/fb/ff. Flip for higher quality and backup? photos - send it to @pixelpipe :-) - Courtney Engle
Robert, you should check out Cinch again. www.cinchcast.com I can get you the iphone app pre release but it works on your mobile phone as well. The app can add photo's and text to your audio file. - alan
OurDoings because 1. OurDoings is here to stay, 2. You'll be busy, 3. OurDoings captures the story like nothing else. http://ourdoings.com/2009-09... - Bruce Lewis
When our sonwas born two months ago, I used thisMoment.com for photo and video which in turn sent updates to Twitter, ff, facebook. Now? I would probably just email them to posterous and have posterous do notices to keep it simple. - Brett G from iPhone
Shepherds have been known to be used. For my own kids, we called some by phone then emailed the balance of people. Of course I eagerly updated the baby pool website (http://bebepool.com <--100% bias for me to mention that, btw) to see whose predications were closest. But, all of these are old school methods, I'm sure you'll come up with something creative. :) - Micah
Congratulations Robert... may God bless you and yours : ) - Mark Harai
Congrats Robert. - Al Stevens
my family around the globe has announced new babies via Facebook! Still tends to be more personal. Congrats! - Michelelarge

Loic Le Meur
Twitter growing from 55 to 5,200 employees by 2013. Over the same span, the company projects reaching 1 billion users according to @biz http://www.imediaconnection.com/content...
these numbers are absolutely mind blowing. Of course it will not be as large as Google but with that many employees...wow - Braden Douglass
Google never talked like this in the early days. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
link plz - Igor Poltavskiy
the link is on my twitter stream but here it is again http://www.imediaconnection.com/content... - Loic Le Meur
Robert: it has yet to be proven that Biz said that, I highly doubt it, quoted that link but it could be totally wrong - Loic Le Meur
Seems awfully ambitious. They have money to survive and adapt though - hopefully they keep adapting. - Jesse Stay
Jesse: to grow that large they need to find a dramatic monetization scheme. It'll be interesting to see what that is. - Robert Scoble
Robert, yeah - I'm not discounting it. It will be interesting to see though. There are a lot of people that want their space right now. - Jesse Stay
Jesse: I think Twitter is pretty defensible actually. Most businesses aren't going to start hyping up someplace else. Twitter is just part of the lexicon now. I walk into a lot of restaurants and they have "follow us on Twitter" right on the menu or on the tables. One even had it in their bathrooms. A new company is NOT going to get that. But agree lots of companies would love to be in their shoes. - Robert Scoble
Robert, I agree, but keep in mind it's not just new companies that want to be in their shoes. Much bigger companies want their space as well. They'll need to adapt - many big names have gone down in flames due to large attitudes and non-willingness to adapt. Think AOL, Compuserve, etc. - Jesse Stay
Sure, Twitter might have entered the lexicon... but... who cares if they can't come up with a way to make lots of money? Lets not kid ourselves: if they had a genuine idea of making lots of money, they would have implemented it by now. Instead they're just going to keep using VC money to keep afloat, hiring like mad and hope like hell that some silly company like eBay comes along and gobbles them up before the tide goes out and the VC's lose faith. - Rowan Hanna
not sure what it would need that many employees for... - Iphigenie
Twitter has no shortage of VC because everyone knows Twitter is going to be massive. Twitter is more concerned about growth than revenue at this point, which is a smart move, because it won't scare people away. I came up with a rhyme that applies to any Online monetization plan: Popularize, then Monetize. Monetize first and users might be put off and not sign up. Monetize after users sign up and they probably won't leave. - Garin Kilpatrick
so we-re saying most of those employees planned will be sales, eh? They better hurry though, who can be sure that by 2013 they won't be myspaced by the next thing? - Iphigenie
What 1bn people will tweet about? Oh I forgot only 10% post tweets... - Giorgio Burlini from iPhone
I did a $Billion Dollar #micropitch today + U gotta mention Facebook + Twitter but I also gave FriendFeed a Plug! - Billy Warhol
Yep; Twitter isn't going anywhere - it is here to stay... - Mark Harai
I liked what Ev, or Biz?, tweeted yesterday. Blogger was a side project that forced them to change course, Twitter was the same. - Gary Walter (gwalter)
5200??? Wow. I don't think Twitter is going anywhere, but that's a lot. I wonder what the allocation of roles is for all those folks??? - Kristi Colvin
OMG - Thomas Power
