The Boston office is a mere toddler (July 2013), but Fitbit itself is now 8 years old! - Bruce Lewis
Final day of the Selma-Montgomery march - http://ourdoings.com/brlewis...
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

What's a good MUD game these days? I want to show my 17yo.
We ended up visiting http://www.t2tmud.org/ for a while. It was fun. I haven't played a MUD in years. - Bruce Lewis
I'm not really motivated to archive. If I ever go back and look at old posts it's to bump them and talk about them with you all.
I agree. I did it because of my posts about my girls (I am making an archive for them). It is not unlike real world conversations of which you have only memories. We will survive without having transcripts. - Stephan Planken

Fitbit acquires FitStar - More Ways to Find Your Fit
"With this acquisition, FitStar members will be able to seamlessly publish their FitStar workouts into Fitbit to see how their personal training or yoga practice impacts their overall health. We’ll also soon be rolling out the ability for Fitbit users to set up a FitStar account using their Fitbit account login. Also coming soon, FitStar users who also use a Fitbit tracker equipped with PurePulse (such as the Charge HR or Surge) will be able to see their heart rate trends during FitStar logged workouts." - Bruce Lewis from Bookmarklet

Ice on salt water - Fort Point Channel - http://ourdoings.com/brlewis...

Snow over ice covers the salt water of Fort Point Channel. Snow near the tops of bridge supports marks high tide. Just north of here the Boston Tea Party Museum lets visitors throw large styrofoam blocks over the side of boats in the channel. They're pulled back up by ropes. Normally the blocks splash into the water. In times like this, they fall to the ice with a thud. - Bruce Lewis

In these photos you can see cracks along the edge of the snow. That's where the tide goes up and down. Despite the tides and salt, the ice and snow goes all the way across. - Bruce Lewis

I've skied perhaps 10 times in my life. Conditions today at Bretton Woods were perhaps the best I ever experienced, with temperatures above freezing, no wind, and a few inches of snow from the night before. - 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
ONLY THREE DAYS LEFT. TIME TO BRING OUT THE CAPS LOCK KEY. - 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.

Mr. Farenheit was not able to cool salt water down to this temperature in 1724. - Bruce Lewis
Trip to San Francisco - http://ourdoings.com/brlewis...
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
