Final day of the Selma-Montgomery march -
Six small planes carried marchers from Saint Louis for the final day of the Selma-Montgomery march. My parents rode on separate planes in case one of them crashed. My mother was pregnant with my older sister at the time. The plane was the scariest part of the experience. The second scariest was hate stares from onlookers, though the marchers were flanked by national guard. During the march my parents got separated. Toward the end of the day they were independently invited by local Black people to the same dinner at a church, where they found each other again. The fried chicken was excellent. - Bruce Lewis

I find it interesting how the researchers used smartphones to make a mood study more tenable. - Bruce Lewis from Bookmarklet
Adam Singer in Boston next week? FriendFeed meetup? My lunches are open except Wednesday.
Will be there 1/16 - 1/28 - I am sure we can fit a lunch in. - Adam Singer
Tomorrow or Friday? On Friday I have a 1:00 meeting. - Bruce Lewis
A friendfeed meetup sure would be good about now. - Bruce Lewis
Last chance - Bruce Lewis
Adam Singer in Boston? Amazing. - Louis Gray
There's this show on TV called "blackish" where the middle-school son in an American black family has no clue that racism is a current issue and not just historical. Is there really any place in the U.S. where a black boy could grow up blissfully ignorant of racism? I would like to believe there's such a place but I don't.
In a wealthy neighborhood in CA, maybe, especially if the parents work hard to pretend it doesn't exist. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Good morning, FriendFeed.

Trip to San Francisco -
I had a very active first hour of being awake. The minutes with only a single dot are waiting for the train and sitting on the train.
Because Government Center Station was closed I ended up walking through Boston to get to the blue line.
Getting through the security line involved more activity (lower left minutes) than walking from the subway to the bus (lower right).
On the train ride from the airport I got a good look at how dry the San Francisco Bay area is.

I finally made the trip to the home office after working for Fitbit over a year. - Bruce Lewis
Beast of a watch! - Mo Kargas
That's the Fitbit Surge. The default "flare" watch face shows activity levels over the current hour, resetting at the top of the hour. - Bruce Lewis
Looks cool. Oh, city is nice too :) - Mo Kargas

On most socnets I've switched to a 2014 profile photo of myself. On FriendFeed I think I'll stick with 2007.
I'm so lazy about updating mine. - Jenny H. from Android

Jessica and I enjoyed an exhibit at Faneuil Hall that included reproductions and original works created from legos, using only the colors lego bricks come in. It was impressive. - Bruce Lewis

Fitbit Charge, Charge HR & Surge: Welcome to a Whole New World of Fitness
Hmm. I am intrigued by the Charge HR... - Laura
Tough choice! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
imo without a gps, it's not that useful unless you never run outside. - ؛ patrick
My Force needs to go. Thinking I'll take advantage of the trade in/recall. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Not a tough choice for patrick then. Surge is the only one that has gps built in. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, that's my point. And if you get the surge (which is obviously no cheap), I don't think it's very different from other products out there in the market. For instance, Garmin makes very good sports watches. - ؛ patrick
I'm all over that Surge. As much as I hate anything bulky on my wrist, I will make the sacrifice for this. (and to be frank, as a runner, Garmin is horrendously overrated nowadays) - Hookuh Tinypants
$249.95 seems to be a good price too - ؛ patrick

Beautiful Day at Fitbit Boston -

The weather was great today. I like this new temporary art piece, "Shimmer", that puts colored shadows on the sidewalk. Fitbit's office is in the leftmost building in the picture. Today we had a visitor from the San Francisco office. Per Boston office tradition, he was presented with a lego minifig. Per Fitbit tradition he assembled his own desk. I learned from our visitor that the variety of messages that Fitbit One cheers you on with originated when there was only one color, and couples would get their's switched. Fitbit wanted something more interesting than just displaying a name by itself. - Bruce Lewis "Fitbit should come out with a phone. It would unlock after 1,000 steps. You'd have to do another 500 steps for each successive open. #fitbit"
Suppose I want to go on Facebook and search for recent posts from my friends containing, say "watch". Is this even possible? Friendfeed has spoiled me.
I don't think so. As far as I can tell I can't search contents of posts. - rönin
Some people have access to it. But most don't. The best you can do is scroll down for a ways in your timeline (set to show most recent first instead of most interesting) and then use your browser search with Ctrl+F. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
How primitive - Todd Hoff
Just think what FB would be worth if it worked like FF. :-D - Eric Logan
