Paul Buchheit
Last friday I taped an iPhone to my head and ran around Paris capturing the most famous sights in a single (somewhat shaky) shot. Here's the video: http://vimeo.com/12906858
Screen shot 2010-06-28 at 6.40.07 PM.png
*spot reserved for a later comment* - Micah from iPhone
Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - ill subliminal
When you said you ran you weren't speaking metaphorically. - Eric - ill subliminal
Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson
great and inspiring - Nenko Ivanov
this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva
You can fit an iPad on my forehead. - Josh Haley
Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal
this is definitely on the list of 'quirkiest things ever done with an iPhone'. :-) - Olivia Lovag
this is so romantic - τorƍue
awesome, you just needed a gun and it would make a cool REAL-time FPS :) - Emil Kirichev
oh thanks you soo much!!! I love it! - Bojan Babic
surprisingly un-shaky - Sally Relton Shakespeare
Avg. speed: 9.48 km/h (9.23 mi in 94 min, see red track http://maps.google.com/maps...) - Jérôme
Paul had the initial idea for Google Glass exactly two years before Google launched Glass. :) - Space Cowboy
Now, if only he had thought of Gmail. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I hope this isn't the start of a "people walk around cities w/smartphones taped to their hats" trend. - rönin
I hope it is - Mo Kargas
If so, it'll just be transitional until smartphones are replaced by glasses-phones. Or smart glasses. Do we have an official name for those yet? - Andrew C (✔)
Iphone taped to the forehead, what a nice way to show #IamAmerican abroad :) - непростые коротышки
first laugh of the day, ty a.t. - chaz2b
LOL, Google Glass back in the days. Monsieur: Martini? Great stuff as I was doing myself a lot of these then too... 9) - Zu from AOD

Our Two New Little Boys! Year 2 with a black kitten for Halloween! #foxfosterkittens

Show all
The black one has stunning blue eyes. I've never seen that before! - Kevin Fox from iPhone
CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE!!! - Katy S
I've seen blue eyes on a black cat before. There could be some siamese in it's background. I can't really tell from the pic - does it have a wedge-shaped head? It might outgrow the blue eyes, though. How old is it? - Katy S
Cute cute cute cute cute!!! - Georgia
The blue eyed black cat is quite different. Cute. - Louis Gray
Katy, I'm not sure if he has a wedge-shaped face. I will get better photos of them soon. They are not brothers, the black one is around 5 weeks old, 18.7oz (so he could still outgrow his blue eyes, but also might not) and the tiger is about 6.5 or maybe 7 weeks 24.3 oz. - Rachel Lea Fox
The Chuck Jones classic "Feed the Kitty" has a black kitten with blue eyes. - Spidra Webster
Precciousss kittahz! You'z so cute you look yummy! LOL I'm just kidding, I wouldn't =) - Franc, a rememberer
wow both super cute, but yeah I've never seen a black cat with blue eyes before, my black cat has the yellowest eyes I've ever seen - Toby Graham
Toby, we aren't sure if he will keep them. At 5 weeks old he could still go either way, but we are excited to see if he does! They are both super sweeties! But baths are in their near future. If you all could smell them through friendfeed... well you would still find them cute, but stinky cute!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Awww.. my cat was dusty-black and hella stinky when I adopted him. xD - Franc, a rememberer
Blacky seems to be sick. He isn't eating much and is throwing up most of what he eats. We will be going in today. I'm sure his stinkiness isn't helped by his being sick. But we will get it all worked out. - Rachel Lea Fox
super bas lepa slika - Milenko Raljic

Bernard Purdie Reissues "Soul Drums"
Picture 1.png
Original Release Date: 1967 - Carlos Ayala
Massive work from one of the funkiest drummers of all time -- the legendary Bernard Pretty Purdie, stepping out here in a batch of instrumentals that may well be his greatest album ever! Bernard's drums are right up front in the mix -- leading off all tunes with a full, funky, echoey sort of approach that's unlike anything else we can think of -- and certainly different from any other... more... - Carlos Ayala
Legendary drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie created what may be the holy grail of break-beats with his album Soul Drums, one of the most sought after drum LPs among serious crate diggers. Purdie is now set to re-release Soul Drums (first time on CD + digital), his first solo album, which will include 8 bonus tracks rumored to be his "lost" sophomore LP (Alexander's Rag Time Band) next... more... - Carlos Ayala
I love Bernard Purdie, here is one reason why http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Toby Graham
There's air...in my hi hat! Mmmmmm mmmmm ohhh yeah! I like that! Yes! - Josh Haley from iPhone
Good to hear this again. Thanks! - Adrian

What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now) - http://flickr.com/photos...
What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay

1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah
CSV_A: 1.05,0.75,1.44,0.81,3.74,0.79,0.77,0.67,0.77,0.76,1.39,1.8,1.61,1.12,0.141,5.08,2.41,0.66,.39,0.62,.62,1.27,0.8576,1.551,0.69 - Micah
1.83 - Grant Bierman
I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah

this is what scobes walls would like if he didnt have FF - sean percival
I haven't seen Marc Canter's fabled fence (just heard about it), but I imagine this but on wood pickets :) - Micah

1.03 748/723 - Keith - @tsudo

2.94 - j1m
Thank you, j1m. Ok, I'm gonna roll this up into a csv and call it a night. - Micah
CSV_B: 0.95,0.7,3.46,3.98,1.02,0.15,0.34,0.52,1.31,0.56,0.16,1.39,4.62,2.63,0.15,0.52,2.94 - Micah

chaz2b, Bluesun 2600, Roger, Nicholas — thank you! - Micah
5.25 but I don't know what this *means, yet. maybe I'm just stingy with my "likes" compared to others? - Marg Uerite
Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler
2.94 1040/354 I have likes set to post to twitter automatically, so I'm careful with them. :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)

Thank you, amin/gnu - Micah
1.45 (4374/3026) - Micah
0.92 now. I think the movie reviews have been getting me closer to a 1 to 1 ratio. - Steven Perez
Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun
0.46 (1698/3638) - Glenn Slaven
Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah
1.31 (4,471/3,401) - Karoli
Thanks, Karoli. And the both of us have a _very_ similar ratio and absolute numbers. wow. - Micah
Thanks, Ryo! - Micah
Andy, scroll upward and you'll see a couple calculations from before (January: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81) - Micah
In March the Mean was: 1.49 - Micah
1.021276595744680851063829787234042553191489361702127659... via Wolfram Alpha - tom murphy
Thanks, tom. And though a bit verbose, your friend Wolfram is resourceful :D - Micah
0.55 (254/444) - Willem (@wim66) ☠
Thank you, Willem. - Micah
In April you were 0.97, so you're liking more / commenting less. - Micah
1.88 (779/414) - Ton Zijp
Thanks, Ton. - Micah
0.43 (3597/8305). - Parth Awasthi

Parth, compared to your April numbers, you've been consistent. - Micah
Thanks, Rick! - Micah
.54 (4148/7674) Updated! - Michael Fidler
Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah
Thanks, Michael. Yes, you have a rising tide of comment percentage (oh, wow, you were one of the originals from January - cool!) - Micah
1.82 from 798 comments / 438 likes - David Damore
Thanks, nivé and David! - Micah

Thierry - yeah, 2.9 is fairly high - got to pick the pace on like side :) [but hey, whatever works for you is fine] - Micah
1.91 - MiniMage
Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler
1.76 (7539/4290) My commenting habits haven't chanced much, but it felt like I clicked Like a lot less, and this ratio confirms that for me. - Micah
It's that time again. - Micah
Thanks, Laura! (you're a 50-caliber gal!) - Micah

0.78 - Pete D
.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - NOT THE CRICKET
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee
.31. I have almost 4 times as many likes as comments. - edythe
Thank you edythe and Eric! - Micah
195/245 makes 0.8 rounded not including this one which would be 196/245 making 0.8 unrounded, - tom murphy
Thanks, Tom. - Micah

1.67 (19,550/11,684) - Mitchell Tsai
Bryan, Mitchell and Jeff P. - thanks, guys! - Micah

Wow, Penguin is a prolific liker! - Laura Norvig

SuezanneC, Brian, B E N and Joe - thank you all very much! - Micah
Joe, it's like see the odometer click through a nice round number - it's just inexplicably engaging. :) - Micah
1.40, nearly the square root of two. - Vezquex
Thanks, Raphael and Andy! - Micah
12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah
When I first saw this: 1.91 Sept 28: 1.94 - MiniMage
536 comments in the last month has me at .8736...still creeping toward 1.00 - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

Thanks, Mark. - Micah

5.67 all time. Second highest ratio on here. Woot! I love to talk. - Kevin L
Thank you both, Kevin and mridul (the two of you balance it each well :) - Micah
1.80 (10,189 / 5,666) [compared to Likes, my Comments still continue to rise] - Micah
1.02 (10323/10161) - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
.5666 currently (30,084/53,093) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah
1.19 - Joe Bonner
Micah this is like 11 months ago, I see you have almost doubled your rate. lets make a graph for everybody now, :) - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL
Quick, someone write a greasemonkey script to inline some google charts! (tap-tap-tap...wut? don't look at me ;) - Micah
Thanks, Joe. And you thank you, Mahmood :) - Micah
Thanks, Glen! Your comments in the ratio have gone up too. - Micah

Of note is the territorial behavior-- something we've seen quite visibly with podcasters, twitterers and second lifers. HIGHLY territorial. - Eric Rice
Reason this is on my radar? The curiosity about scraping a single user's social network for context, vibe and personality. Single out one person, scrape them and their 'essence' (data is just par, worthless, it's what the data says that's valuable), then, spider all the people they connect with and interact with to determine the groups pathology. Then, automate this. - Eric Rice
Ultimately, it could be a theoretical step in creating an artificial being. Can you design a Scoble for example by way of grabbing this sphere's data as a benchmark? - Eric Rice
Sarah, you'd be like 3M. You don't make the Scoble, you make the Scoble *better* - Eric Rice

"Measuring 1,000 meters high, and two miles wide, the name "HAMAD" has been etched into the island of Al Futaisi just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The letters are dug so deep that they form an artificial waterway when filled with seawater and it is so large that it can be easily spotted by satellite -- this landmark will be around for some time to come. So, who is Hamad? That would be the 63 year-old billionaire Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Out of interest, you can see "HAMAD" yourself by typing the coordinates "24.3442, 54.3255" into Google Earth or Google Maps." - Mark H

Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ Planned as Six-Season HBO Arc | /Film - http://www.slashfilm.com/america...
Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ Planned as Six-Season HBO Arc | /Film
"Plans made by HBO and Tom Hanks’ Playtone Productions to adapt Neil Gaiman‘s novel American Gods to television are even more elaborate than we expected. In April we learned that cinematographer Robert Richardson had brought the novel to Playtone, which in turn made a deal with HBO. But we didn’t know any details of how the adaptation would go, other than that Neil Gaiman would work on the pilot script with Mr. Richardson. Now it seems that the companies plan a whopping six seasons based on the one novel. Or ‘inspired by’ might be more accurate, as drawing six seasons out of the novel will likely require writing a good deal of new material. But if Neil Gaiman is involved in that process, that new material could be a gift to his fans." - Jandy from Bookmarklet
I need to re-read this book I read it when it first came out and wasn't in a good place to "get it" - A Gunny named Slickback
I still haven't read anything by Gaiman. Was thinking about starting this one this year, but then I got caught up in Game of Thrones (and sequels) instead. - Jandy
This is the only Gaiman book I've read. Glad it's coming to the screen. It was a bit difficult to visualize. - Rodfather
Ooh! I'm getting this book in the mail today! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Who'll be showrunner though? - Andrew C (✔)
I have a hard time visualizing how they'll bring some of tjs to the screen.... But I'll be watching! - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
This /Film article mentions that amount, as well, and compares it to Game of Thrones ($50-60M for 9 episodes per season) and Rome ($100M for 12 episodes per season). It says American Gods will be 10-12 episode per season. So sounds like it's running cheaper than those two. I don't have a good mental gauge for how much TV costs. - Jandy
Oh, and someone in comments just quoted Gaiman's twitter as saying that he'll be writing more American Gods books - the 6 seasons of this will be more than the first book. - Jandy
That makes more sense. I cannot see the story in this novel going beyond one 12 episode season. Perhaps two, but that's pushing it. - Michael W. May
(in 2007) "high end dramas" cost around $3M/episode. http://www.variety.com/article... - Andrew C (✔)
Awesome! I need to reread American Gods. My favorite Gaiman book is still Neverwhere, which is in dire need of a better TV / movie treatment than the original BBC miniseries from 1996. - Tudor Bosman

"And one fact stood out. In a section on why the NHS needs to be reformed Mr Cameron referred to a health authority which had spent £400,000 on a yacht. He described it as an example of the “waste and inefficiency” in the NHS which needed to be rooted out. A quick Google search reveals Mr Cameron’s reference. Four years ago (well good anecdotes are hard to find) Hull’s Primary Care Trust decided to spend £400,000 of its budget supporting a project aimed at reducing the number of young people not in employment, education or training (NEETS to give it its full acronym)." - M F from Bookmarklet
"Well last year 266 young people on the NEETS register took part – and today 179 (or 67 per cent of them) have gone into jobs, education or training. 29 of those on the scheme had criminal records and had been referred to the project by the Youth Justice Service. Only three of them have subsequently reoffended. Oh yes, and the project has been held up as a beacon of good practice for the Big Society to emulate by the Institute of Community Cohesion." - M F
so they can use this two ways - one with the story as a "big society" example, and then, anonymized, as a bogeyman of spending. --speechless-- - Iphigenie
An extreme case of cherry picking with a twist - M F
Don't forget about the charity that helps/supports ex-convicts back in to society, he said on camera on sky news I believe, that this was an example of his big society, a few days?/months? later, he stopped funding for that charity! I'm getting exhausted and despondent about all this... - Halil
A charity hailed by the Prime Minister as an example of the "Big Society" may have to close because the coalition has cut back on its funding. http://news.sky.com/skynews... - Halil

Roll call...this can be great if we all participate. Add yourself to this shared map. I created a placemark on the 2 major intersections near where I live. - Mark Krynsky

How do I add myself? - Mo Kargas

Puyallup, WA - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Mo, I'm a newb to the shared maps stuff, but I turned on collaboration and allowed anyone to edit the map. There should be an edit button and then you can add a placemark. - Mark Krynsky
erm...Adelaide, SA, Australia - Mo Kargas
Sydney, Australia. - Andrew Trinh
Yeah, I don't see how to add anything to the map - Rahsheen
But you already have Rahsheen. - Andrew Trinh
Well it's working because I see others are adding themselves...Make sure you are logged into your Google account. - Mark Krynsky
After most have put their placemarks on, don't let anyone edit it because there's always someone out there waiting to fuck shit up. - Andrew Trinh
@Andrew...good point. I just changed it from public to unlisted which only makes the map available to those with the URL. - Mark Krynsky
Even so, last time we had the Confessions account details on FF it was tinkered with. - Andrew Trinh
I added mine, but in the process of learning I think I nudged the Sydney, Australia points off a little. Sorry. - Rob H.
Ok, think I did it! - Bec Rowe @d0tski
Robert bought me a new house in the northern suburbs. - Andrew Trinh
@Bec...nice. You are the first brave female on here. - Mark Krynsky
Cool idea, Mark! I was thinking something like this would be fun the other day. Duly added myself - or at least the nearest big intersection. ;) - Jandy
Mousing over the usernames shows your Google profile info...cool. - Mark Krynsky

I've read the instruction and still don't see the button thing to add myself. I'm feeling pretty stupid right now. -
@Jill, make sure you are logged into your Google account and then click on the edit button above the list of names already on the map. You will then see the pushpin in the upper left hand side of the map. - Mark Krynsky
Thanks Mark! I see it all now. -
Great idea! - Alan Le
