What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay
@Cee Bee I think you meant 0.62 - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
1.27 (902/705) - Leandro Ardissone ⍨
yes, thanks for the correction. lindsay, you're making me feel bad. lol - Cee Bee
0.8576, I only like mostly when I'm going to comment - Molly Song ;)
1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah
CSV_A: 1.05,0.75,1.44,0.81,3.74,0.79,0.77,0.67,0.77,0.76,1.39,1.8,1.61,1.12,0.141,5.08,2.41,0.66,.39,0.62,.62,1.27,0.8576,1.551,0.69 - Micah
1.83 - Grant Bierman
I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah
.37 1002/2708 - Michael Fidler
this is what scobes walls would like if he didnt have FF - sean percival
I haven't seen Marc Canter's fabled fence (just heard about it), but I imagine this but on wood pickets :) - Micah
This week: 2.48 (1162:467) but this is not the norm, my likes usually match or are higher than comments, overall: 0.95 (14228:14846). - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Michael, Kol! I'll recalculate average/median when we build up some more data points here. - Micah
1.03 748/723 - Keith - @tsudo
.68 6986/10194 Someone wrote a great article on the comment-like ratio a few months ago. Search on FriendFeed is crashing on me... I'll try to get the link. - Mitchell Tsai
Thanks Mitchell (btw, search crashing on me too - lots) - Micah
1316 comments/20221 likes (0.06), according to Windows Calculator, although I probably screwed up. - Tyson Key
*bump* - Micah
Thanks, Mark! - Micah
Thanks Spidra! - Micah
0.95 (1520/1604) - it's 2+ months later, and my ratio flipped (more Likes by .05) - Micah

Thanks, Rachel! - Micah
3.46 (3665/1057) before this comment and like. - Kevin Fox

I've got stuff to say. - Kevin Fox

1.02 (3538/3484) for sofarsofarshaun - Micah

2.63 - Bryce Roney
Thanks for joining in, Bryce. - Micah
.15 all time, .13 this week. - Alix May
Thank you, Alix and David! (and Alix, you're tied with Siavash for the Highest Like ratio. Wow). - Micah
2.94 - j1m
Thank you, j1m. Ok, I'm gonna roll this up into a csv and call it a night. - Micah
CSV_B: 0.95,0.7,3.46,3.98,1.02,0.15,0.34,0.52,1.31,0.56,0.16,1.39,4.62,2.63,0.15,0.52,2.94 - Micah
this week = 0.45%, alltime = 6.43% - chaz2b
CSV_B Mean: 1.49 (previous mean for CVS_A: 1.27) - Micah
Of course the numbers can easily lie, but I'm gonna say it anyway: "We're getting more conversational, people!" - Micah
0.49 (493/988) - Bluesun 2600
816 / 2502 = 0.326139089 overall | 50 / 233 = 0.214592275 this week I like much more than I comment. (maths via google) - Chris Loft
3026/5013 = 0.6036 - Roger Chen
chaz2b, Bluesun 2600, Roger, Nicholas — thank you! - Micah
5.25 but I don't know what this *means, yet. maybe I'm just stingy with my "likes" compared to others? - Marg Uerite
Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler
2.94 1040/354 I have likes set to post to twitter automatically, so I'm careful with them. :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
0.85 - Steven Perez
0.73 up from 0.66 on Jan 08 - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ

5.81 i'm not using it as does everyone else here. that is fer sure. - Marg Uerite
Ahsan, huh, I'd never considered that. - Micah
17942/30571=.59 - Scoble, Alex Scoble

Much obliged, Amani. - Micah
3062/5777 you do the maths. - Will Higgins™
.53 (3062/5777) for Will Higgins #math-on-demand-services - Micah
Thank you, amin/gnu - Micah
1.45 (4374/3026) - Micah
0.92 now. I think the movie reviews have been getting me closer to a 1 to 1 ratio. - Steven Perez
Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun
0.46 (1698/3638) - Glenn Slaven
Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah
1.31 (4,471/3,401) - Karoli
Thanks, Karoli. And the both of us have a _very_ similar ratio and absolute numbers. wow. - Micah
Thanks, Ryo! - Micah
Andy, scroll upward and you'll see a couple calculations from before (January: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81) - Micah
In March the Mean was: 1.49 - Micah
1.021276595744680851063829787234042553191489361702127659... via Wolfram Alpha - tom murphy
Thanks, tom. And though a bit verbose, your friend Wolfram is resourceful :D - Micah
0.55 (254/444) - Willem (@wim66) ☠
Thank you, Willem. - Micah
In April you were 0.97, so you're liking more / commenting less. - Micah
1.88 (779/414) - Ton Zijp
Thanks, Ton. - Micah
0.43 (3597/8305). - Parth Awasthi
0.74 (1970/2667) - Kristin of Two Everything
And thank you Parth, Scott. - Micah
Parth, compared to your April numbers, you've been consistent. - Micah
Thanks, Rick! - Micah
.54 (4148/7674) Updated! - Michael Fidler
Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah
Thanks, Michael. Yes, you have a rising tide of comment percentage (oh, wow, you were one of the originals from January - cool!) - Micah
1.82 from 798 comments / 438 likes - David Damore
Thanks, nivé and David! - Micah
2027/1594 = 1.27 - Brome
0.58 - Marc Dong
2.9 (3,242/1,116) mhhh.. time to straighten my use of FF a bit.. thanks for this entry - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Brome, Marc and Thierry - thank you! - Micah
Thierry - yeah, 2.9 is fairly high - got to pick the pace on like side :) [but hey, whatever works for you is fine] - Micah
1.91 - MiniMage
Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler
1.76 (7539/4290) My commenting habits haven't chanced much, but it felt like I clicked Like a lot less, and this ratio confirms that for me. - Micah
It's that time again. - Micah
Thanks, Laura! (you're a 50-caliber gal!) - Micah
0.64 - Imabug
Thank you, Imabug. - Micah

Thanks Imabug, directeur, Steven, RAPatton, Jim, Brent and metalerik! - Micah
0.78 - Pete D
.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - NOT THE CRICKET
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee
.31. I have almost 4 times as many likes as comments. - edythe
Thank you edythe and Eric! - Micah
195/245 makes 0.8 rounded not including this one which would be 196/245 making 0.8 unrounded, - tom murphy
Thanks, Tom. - Micah
1.98 (588/297) - Bryan Zirkel
1.67 (19,550/11,684) - Mitchell Tsai
Bryan, Mitchell and Jeff P. - thanks, guys! - Micah
1.18 - it's always been close to 1, since day one, for some reason. - Laura Norvig
Wow, Penguin is a prolific liker! - Laura Norvig
2.67 (875/328) - Nathalie
Thank you, Nathalie! - Micah
Thanks, Spidra and Mark! - Micah
0.49 - Jammy Lee
Jammy and Mathew, thank you very much. - Micah
I don't know I just like that picture - Brian Hendrickson
.40 - Ben Hanten
Mine was exactly 2:1 about a week ago. Did a screenshot when I had 2,000 comments and 1,000 likes. - Joe from iPod
SuezanneC, Brian, B E N and Joe - thank you all very much! - Micah
Joe, it's like see the odometer click through a nice round number - it's just inexplicably engaging. :) - Micah
1.40, nearly the square root of two. - Vezquex
Thanks, Raphael and Andy! - Micah
12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah
When I first saw this: 1.91 Sept 28: 1.94 - MiniMage
536 comments in the last month has me at .8736...still creeping toward 1.00 - Bren
Thanks, MiniMage (2x participant!), Bren (3x!) and Shannon (your inaugural visit!) - Micah
Thank you, SustainedEuphoria. - Micah
Thanks, Mark. - Micah
1.45 - Brett Kelly
Thanks, Brett :) - Micah
5.67 all time. Second highest ratio on here. Woot! I love to talk. - Kevin L
Thank you both, Kevin and mridul (the two of you balance it each well :) - Micah
1.80 (10,189 / 5,666) [compared to Likes, my Comments still continue to rise] - Micah
1.02 (10323/10161) - Bren
.5666 currently (30,084/53,093) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah
1.19 - Joe Bonner
Micah this is like 11 months ago, I see you have almost doubled your rate. lets make a graph for everybody now, :) - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL
Quick, someone write a greasemonkey script to inline some google charts! (tap-tap-tap...wut? don't look at me ;) - Micah
Thanks, Joe. And you thank you, Mahmood :) - Micah
Thanks, Glen! Your comments in the ratio have gone up too. - Micah

Map
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

I have a fitbit one and I love it. It keeps count of all my steps along the day and when I do sports. But I see that when I go to backcountry skiing it can't count the right steps... last sunday more than 3 hours skiing up but few steps registered... why? No differences if i wear fitbit on a necklace (where usually it is) or in my pocket.
any suggestions? thanks :) - Irma
It's because of the gliding motion. Mine only picks up steps when I'm going uphill or skiing skate style. Good to see another skier, anyway! - Jenny H. from Android
For bicycling, sometimes more steps are counted if you put it in your sock, although still not one step per stroke. I wonder if ankle placement would affect xc skiing too. - Bruce Lewis

Chicago woman's brakes cut because she violated parking dibs? http://go.wgntv.com/1DwyA9q Of course that's too far but maybe don't steal a spot.
There are no dibs for parking spots - Todd Hoff
Dibs are fair during snowstorms IMO. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
This is a cultural difference, Todd. In areas that get that much snow, there *are* dibs because people have to go to the effort of shoveling the parking places & keeping them usable. However, I only know this because of media stories. It's a big cultural difference and I can imagine strangers from warmer climes are ignorant of it. - Spidra Webster
A town in MA has gotten rid of dibs because people wil leave lawn chairs in them for hours. That's not cool. But if you spend a long time shoveling a spot and go to get your car, someone shouldn't just grab it. - Heather
Hours? Hun we leave them for days, weeks even. Two people have died shoveling snow this year. We're serious about parking spots. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
There's no dibs culture where I live. But there's plenty of digging out snow. - Micah from FFHound!
Cutting of breaks can cause collateral damage. :/ Just bust her windows or something. :P - Alix May
Just pour water over the door hinge/keyhole or something, right? Or shovel the snow back on top of the car. ⛄ - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Damn! I've also heard that Vaseline on the windshield is devious too. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Did you contact customer service? Sometimes they work miracles. - Bruce Lewis
Isn't that what you're for, Bruce? :) - Louis Gray
Unfortunately not. I'm on probation because everything I've accomplished has a natural explanation. - Bruce Lewis
I'll be in S.F. week after next. I can shake your Fitbit and slap it a few times to see if that fixes it. - Bruce Lewis
To be clear, the miracle/probation part was not serious. I don't want to dissuade people from applying to jobs at Fitbit for lack of supernatural powers. And Fitbit and I are quite happy with each other. - Bruce Lewis
But here I am making jokes on a thread about your serious problem. This is another reason I'm not in Customer Service. I hope you find a solution. - Bruce Lewis
I fixed it! Just had to restart by holding down power 10-12 seconds while connected. Woo. - Louis Gray

Also, I realized the premise is flawed because the powerball drawing has nothing to do with which tickets have been purchased; even if only one person bought one ticket, that wouldn't ensure a win for that person. - Andrew C (✔)

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
Will do. - Sean McBride
First, quick impression of Slack (I need to look at it much more carefully): conversations on Friendfeed pages are much easier to navigate and read. - Sean McBride

Also true in California (if wipers are *continuously* on) and in a fair number of other states. - Walt Crawford
Is that not the law in VA, Chaz? I always thought it was. I know it is in NC (actually, you are required to "burn" your "headlamps" when it's raining in NC). I've always assumed this was law all the way up the eastern seaboard, but maybe it's not. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As a sidenote, a lot of cars have automatic headlights now (pretty sure all newer Fords do), which, when enabled, come on automatically whenever your wipers are on. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Is there a way to turn off automatic headlights? A friend was telling me about having to take his girlfriend's car when they went to see a road lined with lights for Christmas, because his car has automatic headlights and then you can't see the light display. - bentley
Bentley - in my car, at least, the light selector has 4 positions: Off, Parking Lights, On, and Automatic. I always leave mine on auto, but I can absolutely switch them to any of the other three positions - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Thanks. I wondered about that. Mostly I wondered how spy and cop shows were going to handle driving down dark alleys with lights off. :-) - bentley
I have a 2013 CR-V. In the "Off" position running lights stay on. - Bruce Lewis
Yup. I can attest to my sister getting a ticket for not having headlights on when it was raining once. She got out of it, of course, but still. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

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

Grandfather is going to a movie tonight. Last time he went to a cinema was in London, 1943.
He was tired of walking. Can't remember what film it was. - Micah from FFHound!
wow. what's he going to see? - MoTO Boychick Devil
Unbroken. - Micah from FFHound!
It's pretty good. I think giving an epic like that to a first time director might have been a little too much. Also, I think it could that Zamperini's story could have easily been 3 separate movies. Having said all that I think Jolie did a good job overall. "Imitation Game" is a better movie, IMHO. - MoTO Boychick Devil
*nod* Also, he's read the book three times. - Micah from FFHound!
Yeah, Waif and I read it. Neither of us could put it down. - MoTO Boychick Devil
Wait till he sees how much the price of popped corn has gone up. - Micah from FFHound!
I saw poor reviews from people who read the book, but I watched it with people who read the book and they liked it. - Bruce Lewis

How to piss off your customers: In QLD we don't have daylight savings. The rest of Oz has been in DLS for 4 months. Overnight, the time server for the Optus phone network reset/broke and put all QLD phones 1 hour ahead when they time synced. Hundreds of thousands of customers in QLD were woken 1 hour early today.
People have turned up to places 1 hour early to find them shut. A lady turned up for surgery 1 hour early. Mums woke up kids to get them to school holiday care. It's a PR shitfest - Johnny from iPhone
Does everyone now use their phone as an alarm clock? I....use an alarm clock. And a wall clock.And a watch... - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
*scoots over to sit next to m9m* - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I used an alarm clock until I moved and couldn't find my alarm clock. That's when I started using the phone. - bentley
m9m: you're not alone--well, we don't have a wall clock, but definitely an alarm clock. And watches. - Walt Crawford
And I still wear a watch. - bentley
I wear a watch - but it pairs with my phone and so I think if my phone got screwy, my watch would too. I do have other clocks in the house, though - I'd like to think I'd notice the time difference before I left the house... - WebGoddess
It's currently overcast and rainy here and it's summer so the sun is up at 4am so judging the time is a little more tricky. - Johnny
I use my Fitbit. - Bruce Lewis
The alarm clock function is the main thing I do with my phone. But I don't have to worry about the time being reset from above. At daylight savings time, I can wait for hours, turn the phone off and on again, take the battery out and put it in again, and it still won't pick up the phone company's new time settings. Last time I gave up and just changed it manually. - Deborah Fitchett

Logan doesn't play Minecraft yet, but watches YouTube videos about Minecraft whenever he gets the chance. It's all he talks about. I'm so sick of it already. If Minecraft was a person I'd punch it in the face.
*fistbump* - Marina's Godmother :-)
It's actually easier when they do play it, because then at least they're more likely to be doing it instead of talking about it! - Marina's Godmother :-)
*fistbump* back! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
My son sits here and watches people play it on YouTube. I don't get it. - Eric - Let Me Know
I'm afraid he'd then want to PLAY it all the time. That would drive me over the edge. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I play it and watch people play it. Then again people play football in the park then watch other people play it on TV so I'm cool with it. - Johnny
I used to stand and watch people play Pac-Man so I get the appeal, but I guess today it's just so much more content. It's such a big industry. - Eric - Let Me Know
His personality (he's 6) seems to be the more he watches the meaner and more disobedient he becomes. He's like an angry drunk. It creates more conflict in our home life. He needs more activity than he realizes. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
The live streams on twitch.tv are popular too. It's interesting watching different designs. - Rodfather
Yvonne, yes! Minecraft can't be at the expense of physical activity. OTOH ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Resistance is futile. Honestly, if you learn about it enough to set it up so he's just building stuff instead of playing as a game, it's pretty creative. But yeah, Wade talks about it a lot. I pretend to listen for awhile and then perfect the art of tuning it out or just break it to him that I don't want to hear about it. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Both my kids play and while my son typically isn't a very talkative person, he once jabbered to me about Minecraft for 2 hours straight while I was driving somewhere. No breaks. I am not exaggerating. He also watches one particular series of Minecraft Youtube vids and it's gotten to the point where I can't tell if the stories he tells me of what he's done in Minecraft is stuff he's actually done or he's just projecting himself onto these vids that he's watched. - rönin
Crazy how it's taken hold of so many! I'm sure we'll give in at some point, but not yet. =) - The Other Yvonne
Hahahaha, Stampy friggin' Longnose and iBallistic fecking Squid. Josiah knows if his behaviour falls below acceptable levels then his iPad is the first thing to go. There will be days when it seems everything he does is Minecraft related, but he might mix the actual activities up even though they all revolve around the same thing - so watching the videos, playing the game, reading the... more... - Melly

Jayden talks at me about Pokemon, the Marvel Universe, Yu Gi Oh, Sonic and friends, all his obsessions...constantly. Every day. Ad nauseum. I care about none of it. He knows, and doesn't shut up. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm okay with discussing it occasionally. But they seem to get stuck on it. don't they? I try to steer the conversation elsewhere but it doesn't always work... - Melly
I've told Logan he can only watch Minecraft videos once a day during the school week. Hopefully then we'll make it to the end of the week unharmed. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I played Skylanders with Josiah today. Together, one mission takes about half an hour. That I can handle. I've tried Minecraft and just can't get into it! - Melly
I think Minecraft is great. It's digital legos. Except you can't walk around inside lego buildings. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, you can if you have enough legos. - Amit Patel
Today Josiah keeps talking about the Pokemon texture (?) pack in Minecraft. His interests are melding, help! - Melly
Melly, there's a mod called Pixelmon that Wade plays - sounds like he and Josiah have a lot in common. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

We added a few features you might have missed recently: support for imgur.com thumbnails (http://friendfeed.com/search...) and "Best of" for users/groups on the iPhone (http://friendfeed.com/iphone...)
Screen shot 2009-10-29 at 3.05.19 PM.png
Rumors of FriendFeed's death are greatly exaggerated. (Thank you, Ben!) - Stephen Mack
Thanks, guys :) - Franc, a rememberer
Stephen, very happy to see new features like this, but I think the "death" part is the major users reducing their activity. I'd love to see some support from Facebook in promoting FriendFeed more to encourage those users to go back. Or maybe they don't want to? Regardless, bonus for me! Thanks Benjamin - you're awesome! - Jesse Stay
Jesse, fair enough but major users always did come and go. Some of the departees who left said they were doing so because there was no new development. Clearly not all development is halted. Last week Paul hinted that FF may receive a major new feature, and characterized his participation as "20% time" -- I'll take that. - Stephen Mack
I backed down off the all caps. The group "best of" is really useful, love it. - Stephen Mack
Stephen, I agree - I'd just like some confirmation that Facebook cares about all this so I can know whether to focus my efforts on Facebook or FriendFeed or both. - Jesse Stay
I noticed the best of on the iPhone the other day, wrote it out on a cake and then ated it. - Josh Haley
Thanks for the update Ben - AJ Batac
Jesse, I think you should focus where your users are focused. What do SocialToo users want? But if they want Facebook focus, you should still keep an eye on FriendFeed, since the future Facebook will look a lot more like FriendFeed. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, I'm not sure we know that. - Jesse Stay
Paul Buchheit said the FB acquisition was attractive because of shared vision/direction. I would be surprised if a lot of that vision wasn't already embodied in this product right here. - Bruce Lewis

I'm not a trained Customer Service agent, but I'm going to try this anyway: Louis and Stephen, what trackers were you wearing? What firmware version are they at? Dominant or non-dominant hand (if it's a wrist tracker)?
Stephen was wearing a Force, non-dominant hand. Louis (and I) wore the One in a pocket. My One version is version 60. - Ken Gidley from iPhone
Fitbit One. Right pocket. - Louis Gray
If Stephen wore a force, why did he post a photo of a One? http://friendfeed.com/zeigen... - Bruce Lewis
Because that's my Fitbit One and his Force was falling further behind the further we walked. By the end of the walk, he was around 90,000. - Louis Gray
OK. Bad news for Stephen. The new firmware v80 that improved Charge step counts will not be available on the recalled Force. Since I don't officially speak for Fitbit and this is related to a recalled product that's all I should say. - Bruce Lewis
I KNEW my Force step counts were low! Just hadn't gotten around to doing the trade-in. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Bruce, sorry I missed this originally but thanks for looking into it. My firmware version on the Force is/was version 74. I'm glad we decided to go with Louis's One's step count and not my Force! In related news, I'm ordering a Surge to replace my Force and I'm taking advantage of the Force recall to send it in. - Stephen Mack

I do! Finally getting around to returning my Force in the recall (http://fitbit.expertproductinquiry.com/Force...) but I can't decide between the Surge and Charge HR. - Stephen Mack
*waves hand in air like a madman* I've been looking forward to the Surge for what feels like forever. - That's So CAJ!
Yay! Need to turn in my Force as well. Stephen- don't forget we get 15% off! Lmk if you need email. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Wait, whaaaaa? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, Charge HR is nice because it's smaller and the battery lasts slightly longer. Surge is nice because the display is always on -- no need to press a button to see what time it is. And because you can record a hike or run with GPS without bringing a phone along. I really like the default "flare" watch face on Surge -- see my recent FriendFeed post. - Bruce Lewis

louisgray.com: If You Took a Photo, You're Sharing it, Right?
"As technology advances forward, the way we share changes. We've moved from slide carousels of vacations and Walgreen's photo labs to online photo book replicas, and in-stream editing. We're not backing up our photos to CDs and DVDs, and I don't see a future where I'll hand my kids a microscopic Flash drive upon graduation. They'll just know. Any photo that's ever been taken that I want them to have will be available - and I shouldn't have to do anything." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Great post, Louis. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks, Stephen! - Louis Gray
With all the work that's gone into surfacing good content, it's sad that this is still true: "Or worse, we'll just delete the ones that make us look bad, and post the entire glob of photos as a collection - a digital slide show that hopes our friends will care enough to find their favorite, and leave us a comment, Like or +1 in return to give a head nod of agreement." - Bruce Lewis
I share my photos on FriendFeed. Will FF be around for my grandkids to see it? - Amit Patel
Eventually all this data will be encoded into our DNA so the life history of each person is handed down to future generations that way it always has. Genotype is separated from phenotype which is separated from datatype. - Todd Hoff
Eventually we'll share photos by exchanging DNA through saliva, with "horizontal gene transfer" - Amit Patel
@Amit I cannot comment on current or future Google[x] projects. - Louis Gray

So I received a new device from Fitbit. It's a Flex. Is it fully charged when there are 3 lights on it? What are some other neat features about it? I've had the One, so this is different for me.
SOB! It's a pain in the ass to get on my wrist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Took me over 5 mins to get SOB on my wrist. I'm not confident in this wristband thing! - Jenny
Fully charged is 5 lights according to http://help.fitbit.com/article... and I'm not sure why the clasp instead of a traditional watch buckle. Some people say the clasp looks better, but with a watch buckle Fitbit wouldn't need a help article advising people to practice fastening it off the wrist a few times - http://help.fitbit.com/article... - Bruce Lewis
I love my Flex, but got tired of the wrist bands. They are hard to fit, get on, and I always manage to tear them up. (The soft rubber pulls away from the hard clear window the lights shine through.) After going through several bands, I bought the Tory Burch metal bracelet and love it. - Bash
