And the men’s urinals here have a silhouette of a fly in them. What’s that all about? Are they targets?
Yes, actually. It's been determined that men are not as messy when they have a target. ""Apparently," Berenbaum says, in males, "there is a deep-seated instinct to aim at targets," and having a fly to aim at reduces what she politely calls "human spillage." When flies were introduced at Schiphol Airport, spillage rates dropped 80 percent," - bentley
Interesting... First time I've seen them. - rönin from FFHound!
Same theory applied to male potty-training. :) - Anne Bouey
First time I heard about this was when I was in Portland at a conference in October. It was mentioned during a presentation on UX and UI design, and then, shortly after the presentation, I found that the bathrooms in the conference center had them. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

In a first, the Golden Gate Bridge will close for the weekend - LA Times -
In a first, the Golden Gate Bridge will close for the weekend - LA Times
"The bridge will be closed for 52 hours from 12:01 a.m. Saturday to Monday morning while crews install a new, movable median along the bridge. The barriers allow new, huge "zipper trucks" to change the number of northbound and southbound lanes with traffic flow – a safer alternative to having a person hang outside a truck picking up and dropping off orange pylons, which was the old method." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Sounds like a traffic nightmare this weekend - Steve C Team Marina

Police: Florida man attempted to commit a burglary while carrying his 5-month-old son | Fox News -
"Police say a Florida man carrying his 5-month-old son acted as a lookout while his friend tried to break into a house, then threatened the owner of the home with a knife. St. Petersburg Police said in a news release that a homeowner found 22-year-old Corey Mathews outside his home Monday, holding a baby in a car carrier. Police say that when Mathews spotted the homeowner, he alerted another suspect attempting to break into the home. The other suspect fled, and the homeowner called 911 as he followed Mathews. Mathews then pulled out a knife and threatened to kill the man if he kept following him. Mathews was held Tuesday on $15,000 bond on burglary and other charges. Pinellas County jail records didn't show whether he had an attorney. Police say Mathews' mother took custody of the baby." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
SMH - Anne Bouey
The wording did make me think the baby was acting as the lookout. Which made me think of the tiny baby in a burglar costume from a cheesy TV show. And I giggled. A lot. - Yolanda

Scotland’s national instrument is in danger of extinction, according to bagpipe enthusiasts, who are campaigning for more tuition in state schools. Organisers of the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships are looking to turn the decline around by hosting a unique competition aimed at encouraging newcomers. - Halil from Bookmarklet
The contest has the backing of Craig Munro, of the hugely successful Red Hot Chilli Pipers. He said education bosses needed to realise it was possible to build a fulfilling career from the bagpipes. “It is clear that several schools are trying to get school pipe bands up and running but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get the piping and drumming onto the curriculum,” he added. “If schools can offer students the likes of the recorder to learn music, then why not the bagpipes?” - Halil
I'm surprised to hear this, frankly. I understood that more people are playing the pipes than ever before. Lord knows it's easier to get started than ever before... a lot of the technical limitations have been overcome or minimized. - Brent Schaus
:( Hope it's not true. - Anne Bouey
I think they've just gotten too used to people. I've come across bagpipes in both bars and crowded town squares in later years, and naturally no one wants bagpipes that close. - Eivind
I agree with Eivind, people need to remember that bagpipes are wild animals, not pets. - Greg GuitarBuster
If not it will certainly go the way of the oboe. - Eivind
May you be visited by the ghost of Yusef Lateef - Greg GuitarBuster

The creepy but definitive list of FriendFeed employees and where they work now. UPDATE: As of October 2, 2012, *three* still work at Facebook. Still true as of November 20, 2013.
Show all
With Paul's departure from Facebook today (November 12, 2010), I've heard several FFers talk about who's still at Facebook. I've seen various different numbers, none of which I think are accurate. This is my attempt to be more accurate. Information comes from publicly available sources where available. I drew on the list of FF employees from and - Stephen Mack

I will update the above if I hear news. - Stephen Mack
Technically my first day at Mozilla isn't until Monday. :-) - Kevin Fox
I will also remove this if any FF employees think it's too creepy. :) - Stephen Mack

Kevin mea culpa .. now i remember you want on a summer sabbatical ! - Peter Dawson
No worries. :-) - Kevin Fox
Rodfather, I'm not active here? - Kevin Fox

Wild AND Crazy - Eric - ill subliminal
OK, took some editing but I think the above is accurate. If anyone knows where Ross M. or Goutham P. are now, please let me know! - Stephen Mack
Many thanks to people who provided info, especially Rochelle. - Stephen Mack
Rachel: That's definitely an awesome pic. I had a hard time choosing, you guys had a lot of great events. - Stephen Mack
Wow that is a great list I should probably try an add a few people. FriendFeed very good micro blogging, thanks. - Robert Bridge
Thanks Robert! Updated Ross's employer with information Anne B. found on his Facebook page. - Stephen Mack
He made them an offer that they could eventually refuse? - Stephen Mack
*snicker* - Big Joe Silence
Bump in honor of today's FB IPO. Time to do more creepy digging to see what's up with the FF team! - Stephen Mack
Updated Gary's entry. - Stephen Mack
Updated Jim's entry. He's apparently left Facebook. (I think I remember him confirming this when I had lunch with him last month!) - Stephen Mack
Updated Kevin's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 2012: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 7 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
Stephen, Goutham worked at RockYou for a bit in 2010 and now works for Google. Also, how have I not seen this thread before?! I remember you taking that picture at Kitchen Table - fun times :) - Ross Miller
now this is creepy.. some1 is stalking all the former employees of FF :)- - Peter Dawson
Peter, I wonder who? Ross, thanks! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jim is now at AeroFS. - Anne Bouey
Stephen, also Goutham was a summer intern the year before the Facebook buy. He did not transfer to Facebook. Ross did you transfer to Facebook, I can't remember. - Rachel Lea Fox
oh and I think Ben D. has left AOL. But I can't confirm that, I just seem to remember something about that. *shrug* - Rachel Lea Fox
Anne, AeroFS looks cool! Congrats Jim!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Ben Darnell is at Dropbox. - Tudor Bosman
Also, Dan Hsiao is no longer at Facebook (no more details). - Tudor Bosman
Goutham Patnaik is at Google. - Tudor Bosman
And yes, both Ross and Goutham were interns and were never Facebook employees after the acquisition. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor! Updated above. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 22, 2012: Of the 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees plus 2 interns, 6 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.), and 2 were interns who never went to Facebook (Ross M., Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
And now there are five. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Indeed. I'll update when I get back from vacation -- by then we should know more about Bret's new venture. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oops, I see I never updated this. Stand by. - Stephen Mack
Bret's entry updated. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of June 15, 2012 (updated on September 13, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 5 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 7 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
So basically we're gradually losing FF advocates within the mothership. :-( - DB, Lil LB's Dad
So clearly we need to either recruit current FB'ers to start using FF or get FF users employed FB, or both. - Andrew C (✔)
13 Sep 2012: what was the cause of the outage? But perhaps more importantly, *who* kindly fixed it (and from where) ? [If FB open sources FF, who would be willingly to maintain it?] - Adriano
And whoever it was, I'd happily buy them a nice dinner. - Meg VMeg
Per Tudor (in this thread it was Sanjeev who saved us. THANK YOU SANJEEV! - Stephen Mack
SANJEEV! - Josh Haley
I think Sanjeev is most eligible for a FF Rent Party of sorts. More of a FF Thank You party. - Janet
bump just to immortalise this pix and the start-up crew ! - Peter Dawson
Ana left Facebook, no more details. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor -- I updated her entry. Overall status, as of September 20, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 4 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 8 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
Thanks Tudor and Stephen for the update. - Meg VMeg
Casey left Facebook as well (which, as he's Ana's husband, is no big surprise :) ). No more details. - Tudor Bosman
Ah, so three now. Thanks Tudor. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Not sure how I missed Tudor's update back on October 2, but I have now updated Casey's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of October 2, 2012: There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M. and Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.

An update of sorts, which I guess is in and of itself creepy. I was reading a recent piece on Google Reader, and I was struck by the fact that Darnell jumped from Google Reader to FriendFeed (there are similarities between the two orphaned applications, when you think about it). Then I saw that Darnell made his move right before the Facebook acquisition. After reading subsequent... more... - John E. Bredehoft
Bump. Updated a few folks above to show they're at Quip. I think it's still the case that 3 of the 12 are at Facebook (Ben, Sanjeev, Tudor). - Stephen Mack
Thanks for the update Stephen! - Zu from AOD
Bump! I think the count is still three. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

What Jenny said - Laura Norvig from iPhone
FB and rarely G+. - Anne Bouey
Twitter and FB, a little bit of G+ and Tumblr. - Melly
Livejournal. - bentley
not sure what you mean by web 2.0 but I hit twitter every morning for a quick scan of the news, feedly for the blogs I want to read, and tumblr is a distraction for my increasingly fractured mind. I think of tumblr as a glossy magazine where I flip through the pages. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Feedly, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Oh, and Ello, from time to time. - Steven Perez from Android
Yeah I guess I should add that I do use Facebook to interact generally with family and a few friends. But Facebook's noise to signal ratio is too high for me to use it for much else. - MoTO: #TeamMarina, I keep intending to use facebook but don't generally get to it. I caught up with Instagram yesterday, thanks to the fact that I'm only following something like 4 people there. - Bruce Lewis

Barry, I'm not sure what I meant by Web 2.0, other than there are sites that have some social component to them, but are not really thought of as social networks, e.g. Yelp. - Cristo
What are people's impressions of Ello? - Cristo
Wasn't ready for beta. Very few features at beta. More now, but no users. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Just Twitter (for light use) -- not Facebook or Google+. Still waiting for any other service to catch up with Friendfeed -- and for the next generation of a Friendfeed-like service to appear -- someone is bound to develop it. - Sean McBride
Any interesting features that FriendFeed doesn't have? - Cristo

I've got a huge list of features to add to Friendfeed that I've collected since 2007. I need to pull those notes together and post them as a single document. - Sean McBride
Facebook - Ozgur Demir
I just checked out the latest Twitter analytics features -- great stuff. A future version of a Friendfeed-style social media platform should include analytics at this level (and better) for all individual and group feeds (*especially* group feeds, which are ripe for hundreds of analytic snapshots). - Sean McBride
Sean, I'm interested in your feaure list. - Cristo
Italian Friendfeed like service: - miki
Geocities - Maurizio
Heisenberg -- give me a few days to find time to compile it -- the notes are scattered across six or seven years. - Sean McBride
My admiration and love for the brilliant design of Friendfeed continues unabated -- in fact, it keeps increasing as I compare it to new inferior services. - Sean McBride
Has everyone noticed that Friendfeed is often more efficient than email for private one-on-one and group communications? Much less cruft. Much swifter. Much easier to browse over time. Also superior to text messaging in many cases, in terms of interface. - Sean McBride
Sean, you should look at Slack if you have a group of people that interact. It's better than FriendFeed for a slightly different application area. - Cristo

Wildlife: Wandering wolf killed in Utah was probably the same one spotted near the Grand Canyon | Summit County Citizens Voice
"A coyote hunter shot and killed a federally protected gray wolf in southwestern Utah Sunday, probably the same wolf that had been spotted repeatedly around the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in recent weeks. According to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, the wolf was radio-collared near Cody, Wyoming a year ago. The state agency said the hunter voluntarily reported the kill when he noticed the radio-collar. The Grand Canyon wolf, named “Echo” in a children’s naming contest this month, was confirmed through genetic analysis to be a female originating from the northern Rocky Mountains, at least 450 miles away." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The latest shooting is a clear sign that wolves still need protection of the Endangered Species Act, according to Robinson. Dozens of wolves that dispersed far from their home territories seeking mates have been killed in recent years, often by people claiming to have mistaken the animal for a coyote. Coyotes, which are common and aren’t federally protected, are smaller than wolves, and display a more pointed snout and ears, whereas wolves appear bulkier and with markedly longer legs and a bushier tail." - Jessie

Hoping to hear back from the owners of a lil house I looked at on Christmas Eve. Gave them my last $25 for the credit check. I impressed the guy showing the place, but on the application I don't look as good.
Some people call you back to tell you the place has been rented. Some don't. I feel like, if I give you money, you owe me at least the courtesy of telling me thanks, but no. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The rooms are so tiny we wouldn't be able to fit all our stuff. But there's a yard, and a little laundry room. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
It's in a neighborhood I cannot even imagine the other people, who were there looking, living in. And it's tiny and shabby and they probably wouldn't want to live there long but we would stay. I have ties to the neighborhood and am comfortable there and dammit I want that house so bad I can barely think of anything else. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
