For those who are curious... today is going to be the day. The "Schwag Magnet" twins are coming. Don't expect minute by minute...
Congrats Louis! - Ross Miller
I love the Schwaggin Waggon - Eric Schlissel from twhirl
Awesome! Can't wait to meet your two new kids and hope everything goes as well as possible. - Robert Scoble
When Maryam had Milan we were actually able to use our iPhones in between contractions. (Milan was born at Stanford, just like Louis' kids are -- great wifi there). Maryam didn't want any video, so we did photos and audio. Just be prepared to put down the iPhone IMMEDIATELY when your wife needs you. Otherwise the consequences are harsh. :-) - Robert Scoble
Mazel Tov and may all go as seamlessly as possible. - Mathew A. Koeneker
Wi-Fi at Lucille Packard is great, BTW. :-) - Louis Gray
Congrats! Don't worry about us and take some time offline! - Xavier Bartholome
Louis: I told you it rocks. So, is your wife admitted already? Or did they tell her to take a walk and come back in three hours like they told Maryam? (We went to Jack in the Box, and later, even back home cause, while Maryam was having contractions, she wasn't dialated enough to give birth for nearly 12 hours after we first went to Lucille Packard (Stanford's hospital for children). - Robert Scoble
Oh, and if you know Thomas Hawk, do anything you can to get him to come by and make photos. He took the most spectacular photos of Milan (and my family) that I really treasure to this day. - Robert Scoble
Matthew- Seamless birth , hmm. Kind of counter-intuitive. Louis-all the best to you,wife and twins. - Mark Forman
Congrats! - Yuvi
Good Luck Louis! Stay positive. - Jon-Paul Bussoli
I'm going to sleep hoping we hear great news when I wake up. Just remember, photos, we want photos!!! - Robert Scoble
We are admitted. Contractions are 4-5 minutes apart. We'll be here for a while. - Louis Gray
Cool. Any bets on the time? I'll bet that they are here by noon. Ahh, long night for Louis ahead! Breathe! Breathe! Breathe! :-) - Robert Scoble
I don't dare bet on a time. That's bad luck. But I'm not going anywhere, and she's not either. Duncan Scoble Gray and Cyndy Corvida Gray might debut in the morning. - Louis Gray
now you are ego pandering! Well I am off to bed. Our house is childproofed now and is awaiting the arrival. Milan is looking forward to having a couple of new friends to share toys with. Thinking good thoughts for you both. - Robert Scoble
Be interesting to see how many posts a week you're going to be able to manage now... :-) - Andy Davies
And no, those won't be their real names. :-) - Louis Gray
Congrats man! Get ready for the wild ride. - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
Best of luck throughout the night Louis. Hopefully when I wake up the two new Grays will be ready to blog. - MG Siegler
In case you guys wanted to know where you rate, we haven't told any family on either side that we're here. Didn't want to wake anybody up. Once we get close to 7 a.m. PDT, depending where we are then, maybe we'll let them know. Thanks for the notes. (Is this the first FriendFeed "live" birth?) - Louis Gray
Wooo, awesome! Congrats in advance. :) - Don MacAskill
Congrats and good luck! And they'll share a birthday with @crazybob's #2! - Cyndy
Contractions are 2-3 minutes apart now. Both of them hanging out, and both of us, hanging in... - Louis Gray
I do like the names you've chosen, though. Although you haven't managed to tack FriendFeed or Disqus in there. Maybe two middle names would work. I did that with #4 so she could be named after three family members. - Cyndy
Best wishes! - Mark Dykeman
Congrats!! :) - Paula Hawk
My daughter was born in a different age (1991). I couldn't provide updates to the world on an iPhone. Heck, all I could have done (I didn't) would have been to drive home, fire up the Mac Plus and my 2400bps modem, and posted text updates to the Deep Thoughts and Grotto BBSes. - Ontario Emperor from fftogo
@Ontario My last was born in 2005, and I couldn't even update THEN... they ban all cell usage and WiFi is still a pipe dream. They are still going with the "cell phones mess with equipment" airline story. - Cyndy
And regarding could work "Obama" and "McCain" in there somehow...Duncan Scoble FriendFeed Obama Gray? :) - Ontario Emperor from fftogo
first photos better be with the cn stickers :) - Allen Stern
Congrats Louis! am excited for you. - Nick Halstead
Good luck to all four of you! - Chris Nixon
Congratulations Louis! Life as you know it has now changed. Good luck to all of you. - Rob Diana
Allen: CN stickers are in my hand _right now_. Kid you not. You might get lucky. - Louis Gray
Very exciting. Good luck! - Dave Stanley
Omg! How exciting! Congratulations!!!! - Sarah Perez
Congratulations and enjoy every minute! - RyanEs
WOOT!! Good luck to you and your wife at the hospital today Daddy Grey. - Mike Fruchter
You'er not streaming the whole event? ;-) No I agree some things are sacred. Unless you're scoble. I bet mrs scoble is happy that qik wasn't released when she gave birth... - Gez
Congratulations LG. God Bless - Keith - @tsudo from twhirl
I'll add my congratulations! I'll enjoy taking a rest from your articles :P - Tim Hoeck
Good luck. - James Rishabh Mishra
Congrats Louis! I know what raising twins is like, so I'll wish you good luck as well :) - Shey
Gez: there were certainly video options when Milan was born. She made it very clear that video wasn't to be used. - Robert Scoble
This will be up there as one of if not your BEST day - Christian Anderson
Agree wholeheartedly with Christian.... - Chris Reed
CONGRATULATIONS DADDY!!!!!!!!! - Susan Beebe
Congrats! - Dave Peck
I too will add congratulations! - Andy Tinkham from twhirl
Congratulations Louis! I can only imagine how excited you must be right now. - Caleb Elston
Waiting..waiting...waiting.... ;-) - Hutch Carpenter
Only 8 hours gone by. Our first was 37 hours. The second was like 2 - Capn' One Eye - adrift
Back at Hutch: Waiting...waiting...waiting... - Louis Gray
Congratulations! - Steve Lynch
Ten hours now. Cigars at the ready. - Russellreno
Wishing the best for all four (!) members of the family!!! - Dustin Harris
CONGRATS LOUIS! Glad I get to be in the names :D Can't wait for pictures though. I need to get "shegeeks" and "hegeeks" schwag over there asap! - Corvida
I hope you got plenty of Coffee and brought your laptop battery plug. It's going to be a loooooooong day/night. Hey at least you got FF to kill the time :-) - Mike Fruchter
Update: Things are obviously not the fastest I've ever seen, but progress is progress. We're at six cm. I didn't want to do a cm by cm update, but here we are! Nurses seem excited, so I'll pretend I am. - Louis Gray
This is one occasion when comments really need timestamps... - Andy Davies
This just in..... LG still waiting as of 5 minutes ago. Now in hour 13. - Russellreno
I am jealous. The arrival of one was a joy. Two would have blown my mind! - Capn' One Eye - adrift
Turning to superstition a bit, I got out of my A's shirt, which I've been wearing since we got here. Let's see if wearing the DISQUS shirt I got from Daniel Ha does the trick. :-) - Louis Gray
All in good time. Heck, I would be excited as hell. :) - Mathew A. Koeneker
For those watching this thread, obviously things have taken longer than we expected. Dilation has been slow, and the doctors are talking C-Section. We're trying to avoid. Babies are doing great. - Louis Gray
C-Section imminent, as labor stalled (you might have noticed). Hopefully, back with good news soon. - Louis Gray
Well, this is the sixth thread goin' on the twins, so (1) Louis we're hangin' with ya buddy and (2) get on with it already ... I want to go to sleep :) Seriously, positive, warm and happy thoughts ... and coffee. - Charlie Anzman
at this rate, i think Scoble's gonna have to change his bet from noon Friday to noon on Saturday! - Susan Beebe
Baby Grays are here! The boy clocked in at 9:01 at 5 pounds, and the girl weighed in at 4 pounds, 3 oz at 9:02. Both healthy. - Louis Gray
YEAH!!! Congratulations!!! This is wonderful news - both healthy!!, what are their NAMES?? - Susan Beebe
bump for the oldest thread i've ever found on ff, post-congrads, :) - chaz2b
Matthew and Sarah are now five years old. Happy birthday, twins! - Louis Gray
Louis Gray
What Matthew and Sarah got me for my birthday - bacon popcorn and an Android plushie. For the first one, I partially blame @Mona.
i have never seen baconpop before! - Allen Stern
Everybody calls you Bacon Poppa, don't they? - Yolanda
They may, Yolanda. - Louis Gray
Baconpop...want! - Tamara J. B.

I’m Still Pro SXSW Amidst all the Haters -
btw last year did change things as you note - i've come for over 5 years and frankly if I wasn't living here now, I would not be attending this year. I think this year will be very hard as they have expanded to so many non-walkable locations. Most conferences put a cap on attendance, they don't do that here. - Allen Stern

Once this post shows up in Bing and Google when you search for louisakivacristojimminymoniquemicahkfoxanikahaggis then we know that Bing and Google are copying their search results from FriendFeed.

"Traveling on Christmas Eve is no fun, unless you happened to be on Spanair flight JK5208 from Barcelona to the Canary Islands this year. When they arrived at baggage claim, they each received their own personal Christmas present on the carousel. For once, it pays to check a bag! Agency: Shackleton in Madrid.

Eerily enough, my brother just upgraded from his old BlackBerry to a Samsung Epic. Now I'm jealous. - Dennis Jernberg
Ummm.. It's about a far superior user experience, not about being a fan boy and it's about protecting the OS from the scum that regularly infect Windows PCs. I could care less who wins market share, because I know Apple will maintain incredible user loyalty and Android phones never will. Edit: when I say scum I mean those same people will infect android phones very soon. - Brad Nickel from iPhone

The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles performed three concerts over the weekend titled "Comfort & Joy." During the performances, the chorus acknowledged young gay men and lesbians who have killed themselves after being bullied. A highlight of Sunday's concert was this moving appearance by LeAnn Rimes, who sang "The Rose" in a duet with the chorus, singing "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming."" - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
