I'd like to point out that October is National Women in Small Business Month. Woot to me and my lady biz owners! #smbiz.
w00t to you...owning a business is hell for anyone these days. - Greg Birch
drew olanoff
i hate commercials that start with "imagine a world" - hey i'm the consumer. dont make me imagine shit. just do it.
Or when a line begins with "Introducing...". Sentences really should never begin with a verb ending in "ing". - Josh Haley
LMAO! - Rahsheen
Josh: "Brushing your teeth twice a day helps reduce potential for cavities." - Louis Gray
We used to think tooth decay was caused by S. Mutans, a new study out of Stanford blames tooth decay on Drew's cancer. - Greg Birch
Louis, I'll let that one slide. I think I am more specifically against the word "Introducing" in ads. I mean, it's not a person. And most ads are new things, so it's redundant and stupid, maybe even condescending. Just say, "Dayum, this stuff is great! Buy some!" and be done. I am such a marketer, huh. - Josh Haley
How about "In a world" ... (my favorite example is the trailer for Seinfeld's Comedian movie: ) - Jason Clarke
Chris Brogan

Robert Scoble
kk: my 'best of' awards presentation from #Gnomedex: here's the award I made on @makerbot 3d printer: -
Hey nice to see your friendly face again. Used to drive from Palo Alto to sit on Moss Beach long ago. -
Nice shot of Robert Scoble! Thanks for giving me the skills for shots like this - Greg Birch
Robert Scoble
I love the profile photos over on Facebook. Max size there can be 200x600. Here's mine:
Using a tall photo also makes your account stand out when someone searches for you using Facebook's search: your entry will be 600 px tall while most others will be closer to 200 px. That is, at least, until everyone else catches on. - Mark Alves
Was that one taken at the photo walk I missed yesterday? - Greg Birch
Yes, Robert, I like that photo of you better, too. More engaging. I like the way your eye lines up with the camera. Different from the contact you made with your viewer in the older photo with your finger point. This visual contact engagement has more power to draw the viewer in. Very nice! - Melanie Reed
Greg: yes. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
No way! That looks fantastic, Robert!! - Penne Ard
You're a skyscraper ad! - Sean Gallagher
Sean: and you can see us photoing each other: and -- that's like the story behind the photo. - Robert Scoble
I actually prefer the blog photo from a couple of years ago, when you looked like a kid. - MiniMage
Robert - awesome idea and great photo of you! Smart personal branding move to update your avatar pic and include a Building43 t-shirt in there! - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
I hate browsing albums on Facebook. They reduce the quality so badly to save on bandwidth. - Aviv
Robert Scoble
I am bummed on my way to airport but missing Milan and @maryamie isn't worth it.
Nice finally meeting you. Wish we had more time to hang out. - Akiva
Hug the family for me. - Teresa Valdez Klein
Need more car conversation next time we'll miss you tomorrow. - Greg Birch
Have a fantastic time! - Pam Gwenzi
Andru Edwards
Okay, so, what's he talking about? Am I stupid? :( #gnomedex

I do like FF and use it almost every day. Wouldn't it be great if FB either left it alone so we can continue to use it as "professionals," or somehow incorporate it into a more "mature" version of FB that didn't have all the annoying, time-wasting apps, games, etc. I'd much prefer a totally customizable FF "wall." - Cathryn Hrudicka

so only a few % of rob's followers on here responded? - Mark
Just logged into Friendfeed in the last 24 hours. This seems a lot cleaner than Twitter for certain. I'm an organization freak! - David Kolln
Mark: I have 46,000 followers, but the usual thing is only a percentage of them show up on any week. - Robert Scoble
That's sad - Gianluca Neri from iPhone
I'm sure this is part of Scoble's plot to poll all the people who really read his posts, and unfollow the rest. So I raise my hand. - Shivanand Velmurugan
Just a wannabe. Not an addict (yet). - Carole Hicks
It might also be a way for me to filter down my "following" count (diff (my followers, scoble)) are the only people I really need to follow. Those that scoble follows, I can safely unfollow and use Scoble as my social media filter :) - Shivanand Velmurugan

New here, but learning. Tips for best use? - Barbara Langham
@bdlangam From my perspective the #1 tip in this category is: Explore and define "best use" for yourself.

The new itooth remote must be in close proximity to work properly, new functions include breath control, speech/voice activation, and salivary flavor control. itooth is proprietary, if used without proper digital rights itooth will cease functioning.

My old Logitech MX1000 mouse - man, I can *not* find another mouse with the ergos and the sheer number of programmable buttons (5 besides the scroll/tilt wheel and std left/right buttons). I keep wanting to switch to something newer with better wirelessness, but nothing compares. Sigh. - felix

Easy Bloom ( for $40. It sits in your garden, collects information, and the helps you select which plants will work for the area.

If you had ONE startup to tell @aplusk 's 3 million followers about, what would it be? My answer here:
Other than FriendFeed? Aloqa. I think that is going to be big.Aloqa is a mobile platform and is how lots of businesses will get on iPhone and Android. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
I would tell @aplusk about @Wantsa. I haven't told you about it yet, but i know it's going to be big. Like, big big. - Colleen
Obviously, GOGII (my employer). Our app textPlus is on fire and the stuff we're building on top of boring SMS is freaking amazing. Our founders did JAMDAT (sold to EA), so we're loaded with mobile wizards. Plus, I'm hiring a Teen Ambassador to mentor to properly serve our entire community. /rant done. - drew olanoff
Collen: what does that do? - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Nice this is blow-mind following techniq. - Compuworki
Hi Robert! Check out ...we build social stores for everyone..a good idea to open business easily, helps ppl out..Argentinean startup THANKS!!! - Agustin DL
Why, @offbeatguides of course! They're normal people who travel, and they want something to help them enjoy their travels more! ;-) - Ask Offbeat Guides
aahh and it's free - Agustin DL
I would never ever want to talk to any of his followers, dear lord, omg, where's the Tylenol. - James Watters
@Robert - wantsa ( is a recommendation engine... operates much like a search engine does, only it lives within social networks like Facebook, Ning and others. People recommend businesses, services and people, and businesses have the opportunity to post offers (deals, discounts etc) that come up when a user searches for a product. Not only does the business get to... more... - Colleen
Aloqa has a fatal error in their sigup for other phones :-( - Amit Morson
I would have to say @Pelotonics since it's what I've been working on everyday all day for the past year. We have a online project management solution (very crowded space, I know), though we have an eye towards integrating the tools you use for your personal productivity into the group setting. Like Evernote, Google Docs (we're going to be the first company to be able to truly push GDocs into the corporation), etc... - Daniel Marashlian
The GetVocal ( Surf-By-Tel voice browser allows you to surf the web with only your telephone and your voice! Their voice portal technology dynamically converts any website's HTML code to speech on-the-fly making our solution perfect for mobile professionals and/or visually impaired customers. - Chris Matthieu
Amit it is Android only so far. iPhone coming in next month. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
I'd tell them about One of the best kept secrets outside Phoenix. - Tyler Hurst
Posterous - Noel Gomez
TwitSnaps, Robert...In another one month's time we are going to do something remarkable with - K N Ajit Narayan
i will probably get a ton of backlash against this one....but im mega bullish on @foursquare - Tristan Walker
Yea, I'm loving @Foursquare - Daniel Marashlian
Colleen, how are services/companies joining the Wantsa network? Are they user entered or do they get entered from Wantsa? - Daniel Marashlian
Tristan: Foursquare has a lot of potential but I don't know that it delivers. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Actually, I will have to wait for a Windows Mobile version, if they are planning one. - Amit Morson
Robert, agreed...still early. But if done right, it can change the way we think about LBS. Execution heavy, but im a believer. Smart guys steering the ship - Tristan Walker
Jay: that is interesting, I will be in Texas in a week and we should go and see them. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
what do u think is missing from it? - Tristan Walker
Next time you're in the Marina del Rey area, come see the GOGII/textPlus team, I should be out there for my regular week at a time sessions on off chemo weeks soon. - drew olanoff
Tristan: more locations. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
@Daniel It can happen either way. There;s a suite of managed services and businesses can do it themselves as well. Visibility is based on the amount of money they are willing to pay wantsa for the lead/survey etc (the biz tells wantsa what it is worth to them to get that lead) and a portion of that amount is donated to the charity of the user's choice, without a penny coming from the user's own pocket. - Colleen
@Daniel @Robert, Wantsa is currently an App in Facebook (but the UI needs updating), has launched on the social network and is currently in talks with Ning's biz dev director to place us as a Family app with core integration coming down the pipe in the next 6 months (estimated) - Colleen
But Robert, you can input locations into the system as well. A pain, certainly but theyll figure it out soon enough. - Tristan Walker
I tweeted this - my favorite would be Better World Books (@bwbooks) an online bookstore ( which raises money for literacy worldwide via used book sales, esp of books donated to local libraries - highly successful business model, does good many times over, mission driven (oh and funded by Good Capital here in SF) - Shannon Clark
5G Cell Phones which everyone will have soon - Jeff Grant
FourSquare is aiming to be the unofficial AddressBook in the cloud. Notice that when you friend someone they get all of your contact info and vice versa? Perty smart. - drew olanoff
drew i agree....the service at scale will be REALLY powerful for small businesses as well. This is the kind of LBS theyve been looking for - Tristan Walker
Jeff: Wow, that is the way forward! Are those currently available? - Daniel Marashlian
@foursquare - it just feels right and it feels like it has plenty of potential to grow organically and become a great resource for so many different avenues - Kathleen Forden
Aloqa needs some pricing info. If I have to make a call on that, I usually figure it's too expensive. - Kathy Fitch
The register for later announcements about other phones froze for me, as well. (Of course, their system is probably getting bombarded, right about now, so . . .) - Kathy Fitch
The others sound great, but @aplusk 's followers need to be aware of TribeHQ - a micro-blogging platform (not twitter) that has evolved the micro-blogging concept. In essence, different professional groups (tribes) - eg nurses, engineers, florists, teachers, embalmers connect with others in their occupation, with the tribal buzz, and enter into direct... more... - Paul Jacobs
DM me on Twitter for contact info for Texas Tribune if you need it, Robert - Jay Rosen
Robert, I'm surprised you didn't mention any of the recent partnership/acquisitions by Rackspace. What do you like there (that you can talk about). - Michael Fidler
I would let him know about @GoldMail. GoldMail is software that allows business people to quickly and easily create personal and powerful voiceover visual messages by making slides from virtually any content (including PowerPoint slides, PDFs, Text documents, and photos) and recording their voice over them. They then send a link to their message using any email service or post it online. - Kathryn Leuenberger
@aplusk is all about the democratization of media, so - (Sharing video on Twitter with the 3GS) Plus, it's my start-up ;)! - Colin
Michael: I am a fan of JungleDisk. Great backup to the cloud. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Kathryn: funny I have a video of Goldmail's founder I am working on. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Scoble, I signed up for a Rackspace Cloud Site Friday, mainly because of you, and their service is anything by fanatical. It's terrible. And I'm not complaining just to complain. I owned a Furniture store for years, so I have a lot of respect for people who own and run businesses - Stephen Pickering
Robert, WideTag Inc , we're building the next Internet, the Internet of Things. Any devices, from you Smartphone, toward your laundry or your car, will be interconnected, a Machine2Machine new comunication era. Our WideSpime infrastructure can deliver 16k/sec transaction per single core, something in near-realtime. - Luca Perugini from iPhone
FriendFeed, by far - LANjackal the answer for finding business hours - Greg Birch from iPhone
Is FriendFeed a startup? It's been starting up for a looong time now. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes - Francesco Balducci
I forgot to leave my suggestion before. I see a lot of new startups here, but if I was going to suggest one, it would be posterous. - Michael Fidler
Holy crap the spammers are on froendfeed is nothing sacred - Mark from iPhone
I'm not sold on these location based services. Maybe in SF it's ok. I suppose this is a bit like Augmented Reality. - thinkQuick
It's November 2009, there's no spam on friendfeed and @aplusk is making a magazine on Http:// and sharing it with is 10 million friends. - GreenerMags from iPhone
Well, if @aplusk is all about the democratization of media, then maybe an open source app for making media - ? - Mark Kennedy
rhetorically: do @aplusk's followers really care about tech or cutting-edge sites, or are they more or less celebrity gawkers? btw, aloqa looks very interesting. it's time to start making the Web better on mobile devices - .LAG liked that
Annoys me on my iphone when I go to sites and it takes me to a gimped baby mobile version of their site - Mark
Liking this for the acknowledgment that Twitter followers has an aspect of traditional media reach. Which it does. - Hutch Carpenter
why is he called Aplusk? - Mark
A+K - Mike Doeff from iPhone
Tell them about Etherpad. - Vezquex
Why not tell them about something that is both a startup as well as something good for this planet? My vote is for @Jolkona ( (Note: I have no affiliation with them) - Trevin
Thanks to everyone who posted here. I'm having great fun exploring all of these sites and services. - Kathy Fitch
@realDVORAK says my recommendation is a crock. Say it here bub and give us YOUR suggestion! - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Let the clash of the titans commence..... popcorn anyone :) - Jim Connolly
Does Dvorak even use FriendFeed? Thought he was a Twitter guy these days? - Jim Connolly
Robert, you know that @realDVORAK is not actually John C. Dvorak right? John is @therealDVORAK - Steven (optionshiftk)
Good spot Steven. - Jim Connolly
Oopppsss, didn't know that. Thanks! - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Robert: Are there any fake Scobles? - Jim Connolly
Yeah, I just barely caught it.. it was convincing though, especially with the poser using the term "crock" which is a typical Dvorak phrase. - Steven (optionshiftk)
Robert - what about Blackberry users - we can't switch to Friendfeed 100%....Any suggestions? And can't give up bberry. OOPS - meant to post this to previous thread...But seroiusly, help for bberry friendfeed users...? - Liza + = ?
Jim: there are a few inactive ones. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Robert: I thought there had to be a few out there somewhere. - Jim Connolly
@scobleizer - Blown away by such substantive engagement! Challenge your base with an opportunity to show off in front of an audience that they can relate to! Here's the rub - googling for a list of startups is both naive and futile, and would hardly expose sentiment. This seemingly simple question energized the base and satisfied the questioner's true intent - to query a group of early... more... - tony felice

Another idea for Gnomedex: an iPhone app exchange. You get one minute to tell us about your favorite app. At the end of an hour we all should have a ton of cool new apps.
I think that could be fun. What do you think? - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Do it virtually as well - Bwana ☠
Good idea! - Robert Scoble from iPhone
I recently downloaded Evernote and I'm giving it a try, so far not bad although it lacks a couple of features I want (like setting a date/time for a note) - Stephan
List one application you love for the IPhone here. Mine: Bloons - Mark
admits that Byline is one of his favourite apps... I know, I know, RSS is outdated, but still fun to use and a source of information! - Deeeep
Photogene -- lets you edit pictures. - RobinDotNet
Weightbot - tracks and graphs your weight (loss hopefully). - Ronald Barnett
Oooooo. *downloads* - Mark
TweetDeck - I need it to keep up with a changing world! - SoftZo
Tweetie - Mark
"zoom in" -- lets you zoom with the camera; works pretty well - RobinDotNet
Good idea, but why why limit it to the iPhone? - Jeff Harbert
Robert iPhone app exchange = When are you trying it? - Ouriel Ohayon from iPhone
Jeff: because the iPhone is all that matters. ;-) - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Ouriel: soon! :-) - Robert Scoble from iPhone
hope so: we all want to see which are your top apps. could even create a little nice skin for you! - Ouriel Ohayon
That's a great idea, but I'd be worried abut repeat apps and marketing shills. Maybe make a "no repeat" rule? - Trent Hamm
I've only had my iphone a day and I've spent about 50 bucks on little 2 dollar and 1 dollar apps and free stuff and I find the overwhelming majority are atrocious - Mark
Robert: Hah! :) Just for that: My favorite Blackberry app is UberTwitter. It has no wasted whitespace like so many other Twitter apps have. You can follow and unfollow people right from the app. You can get to other people's timelines, even those you don't follow. It also has a search feature. Best of all, it's dead simple to use. - Jeff Harbert
I've tried out literally thousands of apps for the iPhone and the ones I actually use regularly fit on one screen. There's a LOT of cruft out there. - Trent Hamm
is there a bump like app that lets iphone users exchange apps? - Greg Birch
Greg: with you can exchange list of apps to download in a couple of clicks. unless you are talking about something more? - Ouriel Ohayon from iPhone

Gnomedex unconference. Should we do it?
I've been talking with Chris Pirillo, who runs the Gnomedex conference in Seattle in August (a few weeks away). He has a room that sits about 50 upstairs and asked me if I wanted to do something with it. The problem is it only seats about 50, so can't do anything fancy like have Mark Zuckerberg come and speak, so I thought of you here on FriendFeed and especially in building43. What should we do with the room? Let's discuss some ideas: - Robert Scoble
Mona will be there too! - Robert Scoble
Will it be in Ohio? ;-) - Jason Hansen
Jason, um, no. Seattle. - Robert Scoble
Hey Robert, I'm down for checking out the building43 talks/panels at Gnomedex - albeit I don't have a startup, but still interested to hear what's going on. - Kenneth
Yeah, sort of wishful thinking & knew that everything cool happens on the west coast. - Jason Hansen
What's the point though? - Andru Edwards
Andru: the problem is that we only have a fairly small room. If we make it too interesting it'll cause trouble. ;-) - Robert Scoble
I'd love to do a series of interviews with local tech startups in Seattle. There's a ton of really great companies there. - Robert Scoble
But mostly I'm looking for ideas and seeing if there's any interest in doing something at Gnomedex? - Robert Scoble
Yeah, I just don't think it fits in to Gnomedex. That's a compliment BTW - it'll take attention away from it. What you SHOULD do, is a separate Building43 event ;) - Andru Edwards
Andru: yeah, we're talking about a separate building43 event anyway. It's just that Chris offered us a room at Gnomedex to do something at. And there are no rules. So, we can do something that fits in there. - Robert Scoble
Well you certainly COULD do something there - I just don't know if it totally fits. That's all I mean. If you do something, I will likely show up, but that means I have to choose, which has never been an issue at Gnomedex before ;) - Andru Edwards
Yeah, that's a problem, isn't it? Personally I like just hanging out in the hallway cause Gnomedex attracts so many interesting people. Maybe we could do that: the unofficial Gnomedex hallway conversation? - Robert Scoble
Yeah but then it becomes more of a gimmick and less of a...tangible thing? Because in the hallway people are going to be discussing all sorts of stuff, regardless of the "unofficial Gnomedex hallway conversation sponsored by Building43" or whatever, know what I mean? What if you did some stuff during breaks on stage? - Andru Edwards
I think that unconferences were the answer to that - have a conference that is more like hanging out in the hallways. That is where the action is. Maybe Gnomedex could add an unconference portion to itself? - MarkDilley
Mark: I like where this is going. Maybe we should get an unconference going about the 2010 Web. - Robert Scoble
I think it is feasible to have an unconference that aligns with the official conference goal 'A single-track conference with quality content' - I have been involved with several unconferences that haven't worked, but I think that it is because they competed for attention. We could propose something like 2 unconference sessions in the morning followed by 2 or 3 scheduled conference sessions followed by 1 or 2 unconference sessions, so the participants are never asked to choose. - MarkDilley
Mark: unfortunately Gnomedex is already planned, so anything we do will be competition. I am thinking of something like "for developers only, come build the 2010 web unconference style." Does that sound interesting? Gnomedex's schedule is here: - Robert Scoble
Lindsay and I will be at Gnomedex. I'm not sure if we'll be ready to spill the beans on our sekkrit project though. Maybe to a select few. :D - iTad
Tad: what, you having a baby? If you don't tell us we'll just make it up. :-) - Robert Scoble
For Goddess' sake Robert, no! Only you're fool enough to have a baby (or two) after 40! - iTad
Tad: it's a lot of fun. We're potty training and oh so much fun. Heheh. - Robert Scoble
Yeah - we went through that 10 years ago with Avynn. Most difficult thing I've ever done. Never again. (hopefully) - iTad
Anyway, back to the topic, what, if anything, should we do at Gnomedex? - Robert Scoble
Let's plan out what needs to be done to make Intelligent Agents a reality. I think we've got the technology right now - we just need to put it all together properly. - iTad
Build out a virtual unconference. Complete with live video streaming and live FriendFeed chat. Incorporate real-time technologies to demonstrate how the "2010 web" will change the way we collaborate. Don't hold back. Use this as a blueprint to present to other companies. - Bwana ☠
Will this be on Friday or Saturday? - Brad Butner
You got the title already Robert: the 2010 web unconference, and you moderate the conversations with anyone interested in presenting their visions - Alberto Saavedra from Nambu
That's too vague. Let's concentrate on something more concrete and interesting. The 2010 web will be what it will be. Let's create something that might not be if not for us. - iTad
Tad: vague is good because it will be decided by the people who show up in true unconference style. Brad: not sure yet, probably on second day, but mostly we wanted to see if we could get enough interest first. - Robert Scoble
I like Alberto's idea. What you could do is have a sign-up form and give people a spot on the form to express their interest in presenting a vision (or reality) to the rest of the group there. That way you could have a very clear idea of who is all interested, have an idea of how many people want to share (because it's no fun if everyone there just shows up to listen and not share), and... more... - Brad Butner
Well, there are going to be a lot of people floating around in the hallway... do we just leave it open or what? - Ⓒⓗⓡⓘⓢ Ⓟⓘⓡⓘⓛⓛⓞ
Robert - I was thinking for next year Gnomedex :-) a full unconference track. Maybe this year - a developers unconference with a session on thursday afternoon, friday night - or maybe just do a one day on sunday! any way to vibe off of the positiveness that is Gnomedex. - MarkDilley
l0ckergn0me - I wonder if having a space for open space will work - you have an awesome event planned (and tradition) that work best when not trying to throw in open space - if you like the idea, planning for it next year would be the sweet spot, me thinks. - MarkDilley
We have the entire top floor at Bell Harbor. We have hard costs per person, though... - Ⓒⓗⓡⓘⓢ Ⓟⓘⓡⓘⓛⓛⓞ
Anyone considered renting a boat and doing an unconference cruise around the harbor? could leave right from the center. I'd be up for anything unconventional, Gnomedex is the bright spot on the calendar. - Greg Birch
Would have been cool if this was planned a little earlier - you could have used the room like a wider hallway ;) and used a tweet hashtag to have gatherings there just for 10 mins at a time (4-5 times during the conf) over various topics. That should dilute the crowd . OR just use the room as a real time art/story building space - people can come and go and build a story around Gnomedex - Maya
As you know, we've done an unconference day for on the Friday before the traditional Saturday conference. We've eventually distilled it down to a series of mini-camps--PhotoCamp, VideoCamp, uh, whatever else the attendees want. Not quite an unconference, but not a formal conference, either. It might work for the Gnomedex crowd. - Darren Barefoot
Jason Calacanis
All 90 Alumni companies from #TechCrunch50 and TC40 are invited back for free with booth! We support alumni forever! next year 140 alumni!
You may want to think about this over the long haul. At some point, you run the risk of signal vs. noise overwhelming what you're trying to do. In ten years, you'd have 490 free booths out there and the sheer noise means individual companies wouldn't get much attention. Perhaps this should be somewhat graduated, where TC alumni in the last three years get free booths, then older ones get some degree of discount. - Trent Hamm
I think it's a great move. Courage is usually what startups need most, and loyalty like this really really helps. I must call into Twist. Well done Jason. - Greg Birch

Interesting analysis of Twitter's Suggested User List, which @timoreilly objects to in comments:
Scoble, do you feel you're should have been on that featured twitter users list? Or do you feel you deserve a time on it? - Doubledown_inSL
Interesting. But how did the people on SUL get there on the first place? - Alex M.
Well said Robert. - Leo Laporte
Newt Gingrich?? Why *is* Newt Gingrich on the SUL? - RobinDotNet
I would think having Newt Gingrich on the list would invalidate the entire list. I mean, really. - RobinDotNet
Doubledown_inSL: I don't want to be on any default list by a platform vendor that I didn't earn my way onto and that YOU can't earn your way onto it either. This is not a meritocracy. It's a royalty system. One that picks stars and gifts them huge audiences. - Robert Scoble
Ahmed: Twitter picked their favorite people and removed anyone that they saw as a threat to their future business model. Me for talking about friendfeed too much. Leo for complaining about the name. Calacanis for being a pimp. Kawasaki for being too obvious about building his business (Alltop) on top of it. Shall I go on? - Robert Scoble
Doubledown_inSL: you need to take a look at the original conversation if you haven't already... - travispuk
Robert: I see - Alex M.
reminds me of way clubs in NYC let people in #1.Star Power (BIG NAME), #2 Beauty #3 Wealth - courtney benson
one thing would be interesting to map - how many of the people on the list have ties to kevin rose... i am betting some interesting trends would show up. - Allen Stern
Courtney: You forgot women to men ratio! ;) - travispuk
Travis, right! - courtney benson
Allen: Leo and I both have ties to Kevin Rose and aren't on the list. - Robert Scoble
Media has always been star-driven... so one of the measures of success of any star-maker is the editorial judgment and wisdom of their anointed ones. Same in Silicon Valley, Hollywood, Nashville, Bollywood... print, radio, tv, movies... it's inescapable... and, Robert, no matter whose list you do or don;t make it onto, you are already a MAJOR star ;-) - Fred Davis
robert - im talking about "in his posse" - justine is(was?), gary, etc. it's something that I've wondered about for a while. - Allen Stern
It's the Web 2.0 Mafia ;-) - Jesse Stay
Fred: thank you (for those who don't know, Fred is one of the co-founders of Wired Magazine and a star in his own right). But I wasn't gifted my "stardom" by a media platform. ;-) - Robert Scoble
Fred, agreed that Robert is top notch but so is Leo, Guy and Jason as well as Kevin - courtney benson
Allen: if you said it's "San Francisco gadflys" or "insiders" then I think you're correct. It's just that Kevin is one that's very visible in that circle. Funny, Howard Lindzen and Jeff Pulver and Fred Wilson are investors in Twitter and they aren't on it. I think all three of them deserve it too. I wonder why they aren't gifted a spot? - Robert Scoble
Robert: surely having investors on the SUL would be a little too inbred, even for twitter? - travispuk
Travis: probably. I sure would love to see the thinking that goes on behind the scenes when they decide this list. By the way, I've heard from someone close to the Twitter team that complaining about the list gets you added to a black list where you never will get onto it. Which, funny enough, freed me to complain even more. :-) - Robert Scoble
Robert: I guess it would be a little liberating knowing that technically you could not offend them more than you already have. ;) - travispuk
Dave Winer is very quiet tonight. - Mark
Mark: I think he's traveling. - Robert Scoble
I do like his posts. I wish Dave contributed more on Friendfeed though. I think he is a little reluctant because he doesn't want to evangelise FF at all. He isn't interested in getting people from twitter to here, he considers that FF's problem and not something he should freely help towards. I suppose he is the opposite of you Scoble in that regard. - Mark
wow, I met Steve Johnson recently @MarketingProfs B2B and I did not connect his real life self with the Twitter suggested list :D - Valeria Maltoni
also, looks like the editors at People magazine picked who they put on the list :) - Valeria Maltoni
I swear I typed that before I saw People magazine on the list! - Valeria Maltoni
Robert, I think you're engaging in one of the oldest forms of media self-promotion here: attacking others as a way of drawing attention to yourself. I like you a lot and you're generally very positive. But when you start claiming that twitter "took you off the list" because you promote Friendfeed too much, I think you're playing the same kind of media game that led talk radio and its ilk astray. It doesn't speak well of you. - Tim O'Reilly
I wondering if there has been anything showing whether being on the SUL effects a business bottom line, if it does or starts to I definitely can see a problem. - Kim Landwehr
Just guessing but I find it really hard to believe that half the "stars" on the SUL actually write their own tweets. Betting it is all run by a bunch of PR flacks. - Dave Hodson
Tim: you keep making this about me but I am far from the only one hurt by this list. But you are right and it demonstrates just how many strings are attached here even for people who are not on the list. We can't even discuss the list and how anti-community and how it sets up a corruptible system without looking like a selfish jerk. But you forgot one thing: I will not accept a spot on... more... - Robert Scoble
Tim: but I have written my last word on this. You are right that it serves me no good to talk about this and waste my energy on it. It's just shocking to me that you are defending something that isn't a meritocracy. I was expecting you to be the first one to decry this system of royalty and corruptible systems. The fact that you're all for it and, worse, saying I'm doing this just for self promotion, makes me sad. Really sad. - Robert Scoble
You are out of order O'Reilly. - Mark
Robert, you definitely earned your "stardom" but don't forget you also had a helpful platform as a Microsoft house blogger. - Michael Markman
Thats a pretty weak point, Michael. - Mark
Michael: and for that I had to interview and win my job (which wasn't easy). Also I had thousands of readers per day BEFORE getting that job and being a Microsoft employee didn't get me on a default list that was included in a platform service. I also didn't get an unfair advantage against other Microsoft employees and Bill Gates didn't "pick" the winners -- the marketplace did (when I... more... - Robert Scoble
Speaking as a non-celebrity looking in: I'm really bugged by this whole thing. First of all, Robert, I didn't need a SUL to follow you. Or Leo or Tim or iJustine or TechCrunch or anyone else on my list. The SUL means nothing to me. I never even looked into it ( I've been on twitter since 2006 way before the SUL was in place) until this whole SUL scandal started coming up. I understand... more... - Lise
Robert, hey, I know you weren't gifted your stardom, you earned it by being RELENTLESS about doing your thing, and doing it in public forums (whatever the forum), i.e.: sharing!!! - Fred Davis
I think, ideally, SUL's would be personalized, based on your interests, your profile(s), your friends, FOF's, etc. We'd all get a different one, that was (hopefully) more tailored to each of us. The web is about micromedia, and the one-SUL-fits-all approach is so mass media that it doesn't fit in very well... as this whole discussion (and the many others on the SUL topic) underscore. - Fred Davis
Fred: I agree and its a great point. This is almost what Facebook and LinkedIn do to recommend connections. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I thought LinkedIn had a similar issue a few years ago with the number of connections and they capped the visible connections at 500 and evened the playing field. I like that approach. But it seems that acquiring twitter followers is baked into the twitter dna and they would never create a visible cap at 500. - Jim Posner
Robert, I love you to death man, but why do you waste so much time and energy on this topic? I certainly don't care who is on the list, it just doesn't matter in the scheme of things. Make you own SUL if you feel others deserve to be heard, you have the webspace and the star power to do it, so just do it. Big hug dude. - Rob Fahrni
Fred: I'd love a system like that. Sort of like Alltop or That would have been the right thing to do. Jim: exactly. Lise: there is a disconnect between those who do this as a business and those who do it just for fun. Audience size means money. Let me know how you feel when someone at work gets a huge raise without deserving it/earning it (especially worse if you've been... more... - Robert Scoble
Rob: I do have my own SUL. It's and everyone on it earns their way on it every day by posting great content. - Robert Scoble
So all those sales people and "MAKE MONEY WITH TWITTER" people -- do they make money off of me if I don't follow them back? - RobinDotNet
I like what Fred said. It really would enhance the service. Tumblr has the right approach, at least in part, on the micro-level with Tumblarity. Each user has their own benchmark. In terms of twitter's SUL, it's fine, there's nothing wrong with it. Twitter is a business. The SUL is one method they use to promote their brand. There's a level of inherent familiarity built into the brand... more... - Benjamin Taylor
PS It's great to see the hulk back, in solidarity. - Benjamin Taylor
So if there was a revolt and nobody followed people on the SUL who they thought should not be on the SUL, would Twitter leave them on the SUL? If you don't follow someone because they are on the SUL, is that as bad as following them because they are? (Did that make any sense, or did I not get enough sleep last night?) - RobinDotNet
Exactly Robert, you work your butt off, and I appreciate you for what you bring to the table. I guess being a z-lister, like myself, leaves me on the outside of understanding why this is such a hot topic? Does this really boil down to money? I'm not trying to be an ass here, I truly don't get why it's so important? - Rob Fahrni
Isn't it kind of like going to google and searching for something, and the first links that show up are the ones that people have paid google money to give them precedence, and they might not even necessarily be the best search result? - RobinDotNet
Chris, nicely put. - Rob Fahrni
Benjamin: you don't want to see me when I'm angry! Rob Fahrni: absolutely it's about money. And sex. And influence. And other kinds of measuring I won't mention here. :-) - Robert Scoble
Rob Fahrni: but mostly it's about building a platform that is a meritocracy. I'm an American. I don't like royalty based systems. If you can't earn your way onto this list I don't want any part of it. - Robert Scoble
Oh Robert, you're killin me man! - Rob Fahrni
Rob Fahrni: I'm in a good mood. Peter Himmelman is rocking! Come join us, more fun than debating stupid lists. - Robert Scoble
Then Google isn't an exact model, because it IS a meritocracy, even though it's based on cash. - RobinDotNet
Robin: I've never paid to be on Google. So far Google is a pretty darn good example of a good platform vendor that lets the marketplace decide winners and losers. - Robert Scoble
Don't they have paid links that take precedence? I guess the diff is that though they might have that (and I don't know that they do for sure), they also show everybody else that fits the search criteria. - RobinDotNet
Robin: absolutely not. The paid links were always separate on Google and never were mixed in with the free ones. - Robert Scoble
Robert, I meant killin me in a good way, I'm grinning ear-to-ear. I see your point but doesn't all this attention, even negative attention, just add to the popularity of the thing you despise? You're one of the good guys Robert, don't let this drag you down. I think this is great fodder for a very long essay on Scobleizer. - Rob Fahrni
Got it. That's good to know. So the links that best meet the search criteria are on the top. Hmmm. Sounds like meritocracy to me. You're right, not like Twitter's SUL. - RobinDotNet
derikp: if my son is better at playing soccer and isn't chosen I'd certainly go and talk to the coach and plead his case. But we're not talking about soccer and anyway I'm done discussing this. Onward. I'm glad there are so many people who like royalty based systems and don't understand why meritocracies are important to defend. I guess that's how we end up with countries like Iran and China. Sigh. - Robert Scoble
Why should there be a list at all? Follow people that interest you. You make twitter what it is. - Ryan Gerritsen
Bill: You can not like the SUL and still use Twitter. Apples and oranges. I don't like many of the people who live in my town, yet I still live here and like the town. - Curt Mercadante
oh when will lame twitter SUL get corrected?! *sigh* - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
And, by the way, it seems like the SUL is being used like the same "mass follower" tools that the Twitter folks are seeking to diminish by killing the accounts of those who use them. - Curt Mercadante
Reason I still use Twitter, I still get more responses from my Tweets than in FF. Yet I tend to be more engaged in FF these days but I think the FF celebs usually spark the most engaging threads and the rest of us are trying to get that engagement from our posts. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
manielse: there's no audience more engaged than one you build yourself by being of service to them. It's tough work and I'll be watching and engaging! - Robert Scoble
Sorry I wasn't complaining, just saying many of us built that in Twitter and find it a little tougher to get traction on FriendFeed with our posts. I think tools like WeFollow, Twellow (and even #followfriday) help build relevant audiences easier. You can even argue that SUL is even a good starting place for n00bs. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
manielse: yeah, the eco system that's built up around Twitter is quite powerful. On the other hand here all you need to do is follow someone active and they bring other people into your view (every time I click "like" or comment on someone's items I push those items into your view, for instance) so finding new people to follow here is much nicer and much less of a competition. Plus you find new voices that aren't on any list a lot faster here, I've found. - Robert Scoble
Manielse, ditto Robert S - Myrna
Maybe they could reward early twitter users with a day on the list for every month on twitter before 08. If new social networks would promise props in the future I could live without twitter. - Greg Birch
Although the SUL is obviously distorting of the natural community growth of Twitter, and does not really fulfill the functions @Ev and @Biz intended, "power users" not on the SUL who criticize it should know: they sound really vain, chippy, and silly. - Jason Pontin
I don't care who is on the Twitter SUL, and I pay no attention to it. I look for the Twitter feeds that are most interesting to me -- they are not difficult to find, with a bit of searching. I don't understand the preoccupation with that list -- like everything on the Internet, it is simple to route around or ignore entirely. - Sean McBride
Jason: we know that. If I lived in fear of looking vain, chippy, or silly, I'd just stay off the Internet! :-) - Robert Scoble
Robert, I do not know you or Tim but I do follow and have great respect for you both. IMHO (I am an amateur when compared to you guys), Tim was not saying that he supports the SUL. Do I agree with his comment? Nope. Do I like the SUL? No. But it does happen that if you criticise a list while you mention that you have not been included it can sound like you are "jealous" even if you are not and you do have good reasons for not liking the list... so this can be a tricky one! - Pablo Melchor
Really, the personalized way is the only good way... I mean, sheesh, Twitter recommends people like Ashlee Simpson to me, ferchrissakes! So most of the people on the SUL are a total waste for me, and I suppose for most people, when you get right down to it... if I had some $ to burn I'd get some outside research firm like Insight Express to scope out how the SUL is actually viewed,... more... - Fred Davis
I still think most people find suggested users through word-of-mouth and their own social circles. That's the only way to get the people you really want to follow based on your interests. I've also found that using hashtags properly will get the kind of users you want to follow to you before you get to them. - Fleagle
Leo Laporte

Dave Winer
I am 100 percent a non-smoker now. And knock wood and praise Murphy my heart is doing well. :-)
Haven't you been a non-smoker for quite a while? - iTad
Rock on Dave! - Leo Laporte
Congrats to your journey to clean lungs - Tony
Congrats!!!! That's fabulous news!! Good for you, that's a tough habit to overcome! Rock on Dave! - Susan Beebe
Cool!!! - Bee
Congrats, Dave. - Ken Kennedy
From another ex smoker, congrats. - Mike Lewis
Congrats. Gave up 22 years ago. It isn't easy, but it is worth it. - David Wright from twhirl
I quit in September :) Yay - comix aka martha
Congratulations from a Pulmonologist....we can stop yelling at you now... - Carey Lumeng
Congrats, I quit 4 years ago and never looked back. Good job. - Scott. Cat Herder.
congrats Dave, you're an inspiration for many - Jemima Jordan
tad, 7 years - Dave Winer
well done. I quit 10 years ago, best thing i ever did, worth persevering at. - Ken Power
congrats, I quit one and half year and counting, stay strong. - dan
congratulations, my mother died at 42, she was a smoker, thats my next birthday. I've never smoked, never understood why anyone did. And my mom's death showed me that it was not a good idea to even start. - Bryan Whitehouse
Congrats on seven years of good living! I remember that time when I thought the worst might happen. It's also amazing that seven years have gone by. Keep on kicking! - Robert Scoble
Congrats Dave. - John Blanton from twhirl
A very wise decision...I could only imagine how difficult it was to give up cigarettes. - Steven (optionshiftk)
I recently restarted smoking after I got layed off. I think perhaps it's time to quit again. What did you use to help, Dave? - Scott Ohlemacher
Like Scott, I am also a 100% former quitter. The patch just isn't doing enough for me. Your words of advice and/or encouragement would be appreciated... - Victor Kamutzki
Scott: Dave's doctor told him "quit or die." That was about all the help Dave needed. - Robert Scoble
congrats! I quit almost 4 years ago..... - Gordon Corte
Been reformed for three years now. It's still hard, but definitely worth it. Good luck staying smoke free. - David Imielski
Scoble is right. According to the guy who fixed my heart, I would now be dead for four years if I hadn't quit. The moment he told me the story is the moment I became a non-smoker. - Dave Winer
Dave: I'm glad you quit. Here's to another seven great more years! - Robert Scoble
Dave: Congrats .. that's one of the hardest things in life to do... - Sean Reiser
Nicely done, get your teeth cleaned as a reward and they will feel great for a long time. - Greg Birch
А ингаляция медицинская, хорошая полезная альтернатива курению, и процесс похожий, кто решил бросить - очень рекомендую, я правда себе позволить её не могу, бросил так, но с удоволсьствием бы чем-нить полезным затянулся бы, Гы... бы-Гы - гыыыы... - otverta
Didn't know it takes 7 yrs to be 100% non-smoker. .. Year #5. "never take another puff". Congratulations. - The Comic Project

Dave, your Madtown pals are proud of you. You are leading by example, again, as usual. Congrats and cheers. - Dave Martin

Apple's new MacBook Pros can boot from media in SD card slot -
I've been wondering when I could buy a self booting antivirus card, or system optimization software that ran from the outside......nice. - Greg Birch
Now I'm thinking the OLPC's Sugar OS on flash media (Sugar on a Stick) booting a MacBook Pro. Now I want a newer MacBook :( - William Donohue from BuddyFeed
Jason Calacanis
@answers Are you going to buy the new iPhone 3G S? Why or why not? M$1
I would if I didn't just switch to ATT in January. - Richard Leiter
I got my 3G in September, so I'm not sure what my options are for upgrade. But if it's $399 for the 3GS, I'll buy one. - Paul Ring
Not with the current 3G upgrade path. - Ben Newton
I will definitely be buying one,I have a first generation iphone and have been holding out for this day. - Lee
Yep I am upgrading to the 32GB one! - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
No, as it would cost me way too much now as I bought the 3G a year ago. Disappointed. :( - Steve de Mena
Nope, mid contract and way too much for the upgrade - Tom Searing from twhirl
yes, but waiting for the Jul 11 anniversary when I bought it to make the switch. otherwise iphone 3G S will cost too much - Ernie Oporto from twhirl
Nope, because AT&T's non-qualified upgrade is too harsh. If I could upgrade the 3G I bought in January for $199, then I might consider it. - Jandy
Nope. The UK upgrade path is crazy for current 3G owners. :( - Aaron Dyer from Alert Thingy
yes absolutely. i am still using the original iPhone, which I have to say still works great for being two years old. I didn't see that much of an advantage to upgrading when the first 3G came out, but now there seems to be enough new features that it makes it worth it. - Jennifer
@Jandy AT&T's upgrade policy is no different than any other cell carrier's policy, in making you wait 2 years before upgrading for a greatly reduced price. I am excited that they're subsidizing at all actually; when I bought my original iPhone there wasn't any subsidizing and I paid full-price *and* was locked into a 2-year contract. If you ask me, their policy now is a lot better than it was then. - Jennifer
Just got my 3G for work going to try to upgrade. Not to fussed though. - Jason Remnant
I would buy it now if I was upgrade eligible. Oh well, gotta wait until December. We'll see if it is a big deal. Personally I wouldn't want 3Gers to comfy, and get 'em while the upgrade itch is hot. - sailorj
No because they aren't available with Verizon :( - Adam Martin
No. Will wait for the next iphone when my two year contract comes up for renewal. iPhone 3GS features and price are not worth it for me. - Carlos
Yes. I have a first gen iPhone, the better battery life, autofocus camera, video, gps and compass are enough & being faster also - Shannon Clark
No. Like many others, I'm mid contract. I'd pay $299 for the update, but not $399 or $499 depending on the model. - Michael Groner
upgrade price not worth it for features i get with quickpwn - Tyler Gillies from email
Tyler - you are just flat out wrong. A jailbroken iPhone won't have: autofocus camera (of higher quality), builtin compass, be ready for next gen data networks (up to 7mps), have a faster processor & better battery. I'm upgrading from a 1st gen so the diff is big if I had a 3G it might be closer - Shannon Clark
i was mostly using hyperbole. those features just aren't worth the upgrade price to me. - Tyler Gillies
Just checked, I have to wait until February. Aarrrgh! - Paul Ring
Not available on my provider, another year on contract. Also starting a new job, so will probably get a company mobile (Crackberry). So probably not getting one any time soon. - David Wright from twhirl
Data plans for AT&T are still keeping me from getting into smartphone craze...yet I may be cheap. - Manuel Mas
Here in the UK if you have the existing Iphone 3G you probably have at least 6 months of contract to run - bit of a rollercoaster - June 19th then damn January 2010 :( - David W
Still no pricing here. T-Mobile haven't updated their tariffs, you can arrange to be notified on the 19th though... :-S - David Wright from twhirl
I preordered a 3GS last night from the online apple store. I still have a first ten phone, so thankfully I qualified for the lower pricing. - Beau Liening
Yes, but when I can get the subsidized price (December) - Martin Johnson
definitely not before the contract renewal is possible and who knows how I will feel about it then.. - David W
Probably not. iPhone 2g still works great for me. - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
@Jennifer, I know, and I agree that the initial iPhone customers got screwed, too. But just because it's an industry standard doesn't mean I have to agree with it or like it. I haven't jailbroken because I was hoping to get a new handset with video support, but I may jailbreak instead in the meantime and pick up the new handset when my contract is up. - Jandy
Planning to!! Features that are going to stay for a while from now. The problem in India is the price tag (31 & 36 grands). Looking forward to get one from the US. But then AT&T sucks there :O - Praveen Vasudev
I setup a POLL for this topic at Let me see the stats! - Frode Stenstrøm
No - bad working out by o2 with regard to current 3g owners and the length of their contracts. I'm guessing they know hardcore Apple fans will buy out the remainder of their contract to get the new phone. That, I'm not going to do. I don't have £464 upfront to end my current contract and purchase the new handset. - Charley M
It is really irritating me how much people are complaining about this. No one cared about their 2 year contract when the only thing to look forward to was a $30 flip phone. Maybe contracts are a dumb idea but that's the way it is. Get over it. You just received a subsidized phone a year ago. What makes you think you deserve one every single year? It's nothing that they're doing to... more... - Jennifer
already brought 16G 3Gs set for delivery purchased it as soon as the Apple store opened back up - Kim Landwehr
In 6 months or so. O2 have the same idiotic plan as AT&T. It would cost me a fortune to cancel and then sign a new contract. - Roberto Bonini
Yes, my Blackberry/Verizon contract is up, and I've heard people love At&T so I'm switching. - Greg Birch
@Greg Birch - pls tell me you're kidding. - John Fogarty from twhirl
Yes, but It's like having to choose a contract with the Mafia, Yakuza or the Triads. Eventually you're going to lose an appendage. - Greg Birch
that's a very accurate description. As long as you realize that AT&T = Yakuza. :) - John Fogarty from twhirl
I can dial without a pinky... - Greg Birch
Nope. I just purchased my 3G in November. I'll wait and see what Apple comes up with in the next 18 months to replace mine when my contract expires. - Bryan Clark
Nope---happy with my 3g. - Kelly W.
AT&T sucks, and I am not willing to allow Apple to decide what applications can be put on my phone - Chad Albert
I like AT&T but, I sure don't like their iPhone plan. Might get me a G1 or another HTC product that will take android. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Unfortunately, I just bought two iPhone I'm going to wait a while. It seems every time I purchase an Apple product, they drop the price soon thereafter. Which is okay -- since I'm willing to overpay for Apple products but not pay discount for anything Microsoft at this point. - Curt Mercadante
Nope - N97 unlocked for me. Even at ~$600 it's cheaper than the Iphone. Plus better camera, physical keyboard, FM transmitter, etc etc - Mark Zip
I've been waiting to buy an iPhone and plan to make the 3GS my first one. - Herb Hernandez
I just got an Android instead! - Ric Johnson
lol loyal customer tax - Tyler Gillies from email
I'm getting the new iPhone 3GS because I have been delaying my buy decision for new cellphone waiting for Apple to drops it's new iPhone - Sebastiaan van den Akker
Andru Edwards
Any local peeps wanna buy any of the following? MacBook Pro Unibody 2.4GHz 4GB RAM, iMac 4GB RAM aluminum, iPhone 3G 16GB, Macbook Air SSD?
