What services still use SUP besides OurDoings and FriendFeed? Is the world nothing but PuSH now?
Are two collective nouns connected by "and" treated as singular or plural? E.g., is it "My expertise and experience is..." or "...are..."?
imho, singular and collective; reasons i failed english, :( - chaz2b
Ironically, the weather indicator on my phone looks like a blooming flower with a stem and leaf.

"Never mind those feature-packed smart watches like Samsung Corp.’s $300 Galaxy Gear. If you must strap something digital to your body, you are better off with a fitness monitor like the Fitbit Force. This $130 device tracks your body movements during the day and your sleep patterns at night. Sync the data with a smartphone to keep a permanent record of your physical activities. It’s not quite as exciting as reading e-mail messages on your wrist, but it’s a lot more practical." - Bruce Lewis from Bookmarklet
Fitbit/Glass Bridge - - Eric Logan
Eric, all 6 Fitbit employees in the Boston office think that's way cool. (I think the other 2 will agree but they're not in yet.) - Bruce Lewis
It is cool. No more pulling my Fitbit out of the carrier and squinting to see how much further to my goal. More Glass API call's please Google. 30 minute delay between updates currently. - Eric Logan
HTTP Status 500 - Request processing failed; nested exception is java.lang.NullPointerException - Louis Gray
Try it late at night. You will get to this screen once your linked. They have either hit the API limit or the server is getting to many requests. - Eric Logan
Gray-haired guy on Sing Off has still got it. Go Street Corner Renaissance!
My favorite Fitbit article so far is "Stupid Fitbit":
"I’ve been accused of being somewhat competitive and I’ve always regarded that as a positive attribute given that I earn my income trying to convince juries that my opponent is wrong. I’m competing all of the time and if I’m being honest, I really enjoy what I do. So it was not completely unexpected that once I started the Fitbit program that I would walk more. What I did not fully understand is that I’d become a prisoner to the rubber band from hell that I have on my wrist." - Bruce Lewis
Ha! And this is why I have refused all friend connections on FitBit. I've invested in FitBit for me, not for pride or ego. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
The competition is part of my motivation. Some days it works, some days I don't care. - Holly's favorite Anna
Ordinarily I wouldn't mind some friendly competition of just seeing someone else's numbers and trying to surpass that, but folks have been kind of mean and often times really rude about their competitiveness. So for the sake of retaining the enjoyment I get from having a FitBit, I sequestered myself. But then again, I'm fiercely competitive with myself, so surpassing daily and weekly step goals comes naturally for me. I am the outlier. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Now my boyfriend on the other hand...he loves the competitiveness. And this is exactly what it took to get him to start moving more! Love it! - Hookuh Tinypants
Great article! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Love this. As a chick with zero competitiveness it's funny to see how the other half lives. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

They got it under control, but those ladders were still up when I went out at lunchtime. - Bruce Lewis
If you're planning to get a Fitbit Force for Christmas, order by Wednesday.
I think that will end up being my birthday present to me (assuming my Ultra holds out until March). - vicster: full-bodied
First day at the new Boston Fitbit office -
Show all
We spent the first hour or two assembling chairs and desks. Fitbit co-founder Eric Friedman came from San Francisco to help. He's all the way in back in the second picture. - Bruce Lewis
omg they just did this on the Good Wife! - Meg VMeg

I effected an affect. - Stephen Mack
I affected your effect. - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
I just accepted the full-time position of Principal Software Engineer at Fitbit in Boston. I am so psyched!
Congratulations! - laura x from BuddyFeed
Wooo! How do you feel about leaving Google, though? - Stephen Mack
Do you have to pass a physical fitness test? And congrats. - Todd Hoff
Stephen, I have mixed feelings about leaving Google. I'll miss a lot of people there. But overall I think I'll be happier at a smaller, faster company, especially this one. - Bruce Lewis
congrats! Can you send us free fitbits? ;) - ellbeecee
I hope so, LBC. I'll find out after I start. - Bruce Lewis
Congrats, Bruce! - Jenny H.
cheers! now we have an in at FitBit, sweet. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
Yay! Congratulations. :) And Boston? Nice. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Con'grats and yah xmas is coming close, send us Ftibits pls pls :)- - Peter Dawson
OK, no free ones, but I might be able to get a small number of discounted Zips, Ones and Arias. DM me if you want details. - Bruce Lewis
*looks up what a Zip, One, and Aria are* - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
Fitbit Zip and Fitbit One are at the top of this page, Aria below: - Bruce Lewis
I recommend the Aria for those who don't have one already. :D aside from the Flex, it's my favorite Fitbit product. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
I love my FitBit One. What I despise is the silicone case which has started falling apart. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Zulema, you might want to about that. Maybe there's something they can do. - Bruce Lewis
یعنی انگلیسیت خیلی خوبه همش فید انگلیسی ارسال میکنی؟ :دی - ووووزلا
منم بلدم، آی ام ویندوز :دی - ووووزلا
Is it possible to order FitBits with a company logo on them? - Ross Miller
Good question, Ross. I don't know -- I'd suggest asking - Bruce Lewis
Today marks the first time I've passed Louis Gray on the Fitbit leaderboard. I don't know exactly what the "taunt" feature does, but I just used it. :-)
Hah I don't have a fitbit but that's funny :) I might get one just for taunting purposes. - Steve C
Well done, Bruce! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Sheesh. Take one weekend off from the marathon walks and BOOM. Suckage. - Louis Gray
Exercise is unproductive and a waste of time. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
I discovered this week that it doesn't take any longer to walk between North Station and our temporary offices at 129 Newbury Street than it takes to ride the green line. Walking over Beacon Hill and through the Boston Public Garden gives way better scenery than I would get riding underground. - Bruce Lewis
Fitbit Force - 99.95 +tax at Brookstone using LivingSocial 20% coupon code and $25 for $50 (mobile)
Nice! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I just noticed Linode doubled my RAM and disk space for free. OurDoings will be unavailable while the partition resizes.
I just renewed 1 domain at The best checkout process and no upsells! #Namecheap
Oh look, there's a baseball game on.
Fitbit tells me I walked 10,500 steps yesterday. Who else here has a Fitbit?
OK, at least and and and somebody with a private feed and a bunny. - Bruce Lewis
I do! I just don't feed my Fitbit stats in anywhere. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
You just look at the numbers on the device? - Bruce Lewis
Actually I don't look at my stats anymore since I got my Flex back in April/May. I've enjoyed not having numbers to stare at on my Fitbit, just the dots and buzz once I hit my goal for the day. :) I view my dashboard online twice a week just to make sure all my stats look right and manually adjust sleep logs if needed. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
There's also a Fitbit Friendfeed group. - Betsy
I do, but the only time mine says I did that many steps is when I accidentally washed it in the washer - heh. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I do. I'm on my 4th one. Haha - Tamara J. B.
I'm also on my fourth one.. Geez.. And my fifth (a Force) coming soon. I'm a little hard on it, I guess. One was replaced as defective, broke one by dropping it, lost one, and the Flex I'm using now is just being replaced with a Force. Profile here: - Stephen Mack
I have one. - Katy S
The latest Ubuntu worked a lot better for me after apt-get install nvidia-current
