To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This - NYTimes.com
"More than 20 years ago, the psychologist Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love in his laboratory. Last summer, I applied his technique in my own life, which is how I found myself standing on a bridge at midnight, staring into a man’s eyes for exactly four minutes." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"I explained the study to my university acquaintance. A heterosexual man and woman enter the lab through separate doors. They sit face to face and answer a series of increasingly personal questions. Then they stare silently into each other’s eyes for four minutes. The most tantalizing detail: Six months later, two participants were married. They invited the entire lab to the ceremony." - rönin

#SaturdayFF (tangentially related to LB's post) I use cups and paper towels over & over again, pretty much all day long. It drives me nuts when someone goes behind me and throws them out or puts them in the sink/dishwasher before I'm done using them.

Buick Six on CBC Music - #SaturdayFF - I used to hang out with this band in Winnipeg in the 90s. I dated one of the singers, and used to hang out in their jam house. Was I "with the band"? Nah. I was a band boyfriend. - http://music.cbc.ca/#!...
"Buick Six was a Winnipeg band that existed from 1992-1997. Carla left the band after the first few years, Mark joined, and then Mike left. Their only commercial release, Rollercoaster, was put out on Oh Yah! Records in 1995 and featured Fleur, Julie, Mark, Mike, Matt and Luke. Four of the members are second cousins (not unusual in Mennonite Manitoba). They were 16-19 years old when they started the band in '92." - Brent Schaus from Bookmarklet
I managed to look up Julie on Twitter -- singer and violinist and the other member of a love triangle lol -- and she's now the music producer of the Vinyl Cafe. She's jammed with Broken Social Scene, among ohers. 20+ years ago :P - Brent Schaus
There were a lot of Mennonite kids on the music scene, straight outta Bible college. They were often fantastic musicians. - Brent Schaus

Anti-vaccination update: How the measles crisis struck Disneyland - LA Times
"This looks like another artifact of the rise of the anti-vaccination movement. The Disneyland cases undermine the anti-vaccination argument that leaving children unimmunized affects only those who haven't received shots. They show how a single unimmunized carrier can spread disease into the larger population, especially individuals who can't be vaccinated because of age. As my colleague Emily Foxhall reported, the Department of Public Health believes that a single unimmunized visitor to Disneyland or the adjacent California Adventure Park in Anaheim from Dec. 15 to Dec. 20 was the source of the latest outbreak. The infection then spread to patients in Pasadena, the counties of Alameda, Orange, Riverside and San Diego, and Utah, affecting children as young as 8 months. Of the victims, one had received the standard two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine. Two San Diego county siblings who were exposed at Disney may have later spread measles to people who were at the Parkway Plaza Mall in El Cajon on Dec. 29, the CDPH says." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"As the public health agency observes, measles was judged to be eliminated in the United States in 2000. But recent outbreaks in Europe, Pakistan, Vietnam and the Philippines can be brought to the U.S. by unvaccinated travelers. "Disney and other theme parks in California are international attractions and visitors come from many parts of the world, including those where measles is... more... - Steve C Team Marina

It’s probably not worth making the argument that the decade is from 2011 to 2020 and we’re a year early on half-decade lists, is it?
Friendfeed has this argument at the beginning of the '10s :D http://friendfeed.com/itblogg... — I still maintain that centuries and decades don't align - Victor Ganata
I first remember it being a big thing in 2000, because everyone was scheduling millennium New Year's parties and cruises and whatnot, and all these other people were like, hold up, the millennium doesn't really turn until 2000/2001, because there's no year 0. Besides the even number, the whole Y2K scare brought even more attention to the year 2000, so I don't think anyone listened to the 2001-ers. - Jandy

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 http://friendfeed.com/about... and http://blog.friendfeed.com/. - Stephen Mack
Ana Yang http://friendfeed.com/ana: Chief Miscellaneous Officer at Quip, per https://quip.com/about/ and had left Facebook around September 2012 (see Tudor B.'s comment from 9/20/2012 below). Formerly Places Product Manager at Facebook (see http://www.guardian.co.uk/technol...). - Stephen Mack

Overall status as of November 2010: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 8 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Jim N., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 5 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - 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
Ross Miller's account: http://friendfeed.com/ross - Rochelle
You are both thorough and scary :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
KLevin, tehcnically, this is your last day here and your not part of the FF team ! - Peter Dawson
Me too, Geoff. - Kevin Fox
Thanks Rochelle, updated! Kevin F., edited now, thanks. :) - Stephen Mack

No worries. :-) - Kevin Fox
Rodfather, I'm not active here? - Kevin Fox

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
Bump. - NOT THE CRICKET
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 http://friendfeed.com/friendf...) 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.

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

"Despite high-profile tragedies, 2014 was the safest year on record for flying" [The Washington Post]
"Despite high-profile tragedies, 2014 was the safest year on record for flying" [The Washington Post]
From the Wonkblog post by Christopher Ingraham (Dec. 29, 2014): "With yet another airliner gone missing over Southeast Asian airspace, there's no question that 2014 has been a year beset by mysterious air tragedies. But there's a surprising fact hiding behind this year's high-profile air tragedies: 2014 has been the safest year for flying since, well, ever." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
More: "2014 has seen something of a spike in fatalities, however. ASN's numbers show 1,007 deaths for 2014 so far, a figure which includes only major commercial airliner accidents. The AirAsia flight and the two Malaysia Air flights earlier in the year account for over half of those fatalities -- 699." - Stephen Mack
It's interesting data. And to be fair, the media can accurately say this is the worst year for air fatalities since 2005 (if you go by the second chart, which is the total number of fatalities) AND the safest year on record for flying ever (if you go by the first chart, which is the total number of accidents). - Stephen Mack
