Beautiful Day at Fitbit Boston -
Show all
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

Just think what FB would be worth if it worked like FF. :-D - Eric Logan

"When this article came out there were 12 in my open-plan office and it worked fine. Recently I've been seeking quiet by bringing my laptop to an unoccupied part of the office floor. Headcount is 16 now. Your 15-person cutoff matches my experience." - Bruce Lewis

Are there online communities for young writers? My 13yo would benefit from being part of such a community.
I'd start with NaNoWriMo sites. I'll bet there's a separate board just for youth. - Spidra Webster
NaNo has a whole section for kids, I think they should have resources there too. is a very open community (site is kind of confusing) but really customizable to what you want to see. - Heather is good if she wants to post stuff and get feedback. I've worked with 13y.o.'s on there. - Jessie
there's some options listed here and here - though I don't know how often links on that second one are updated. - ellbeecee
though from that second, looks good, from a quick look over it - ellbeecee
#SaturdayFF When I play Minecraft with my kids, I'm having as much fun as they are.
It's like building a lego house, but you can walk around inside and watch a sunset from the roof. - Bruce Lewis
These goslings and their parents on the South Bay Haborwalk seemed calm about people approaching close. - Bruce Lewis

My avg. daily fitbit #Fitstats for last week: 71,744 steps.
That's my weekly total, not my daily average. I'm going to see if someone already filed a bug. - Bruce Lewis
Even after being abandoned for a week while I went on vacation, my Fitbit still tells me it loves me.

"Minor point: "the past 20 years" only go back to April 8, 1994. The commercial Internet predates that, and is in turn predated by the browser, HTTP and TCP/IP." - Bruce Lewis
Fitbit has open plan seating. In the spacious Boston office it's easy to find quiet, but 90% of the time we stay where everyone else is.
