ThirstyFerret on TIL in the movie Titantic, the ship sinking was based on a real ship that really sank in real life, like an actual ship called Titantic and it really sank. - http://www.reddit.com/r...

Steve Gillmor
Gillmor Gang, Live Recording Session at 1pm PT. Participate at http://www.building43.com/realtim...
Waiting for call... - Robert Scoble
evening all - Nick Halstead
Just a few more minutes. - Robert Scoble
who is on tonights show? - Nick Halstead
Nick. Arrington. Kevin Marks. Steve Gillmor. They are trying to get Seth Goldstein on. - Robert Scoble
Still trying to get everyone on. - Robert Scoble
Hang out a couple more minutes. - Robert Scoble
Here we gooooooooo..... - Robert Scoble
Up.. good.. looks good. - Kevin Costain
John Tauschek, too. - Robert Scoble
I see Robert's TeetDeck buzzing away.. haha - Kevin Costain
Is all of the music listed in ping shown with just a preview? Are there any full-length tracks there? - Kevin Costain
They don't have a built-in network... they have a user base that are not connected - Ankush Narula
They have the network of iChat users and Appel Mail users... - Kevin Marks
Kevin: I wonder if any of those user will care to connect to each other? Who out there actually "Lives" in iTunes? - Kevin Costain
yeah but that's quite pre-social - many ichat users users use AOL accounts and mobile.me users have address books - which is what they're telling us to use anyway by inviting people by e-mail - Ankush Narula
I use iTunes to sync my iOS devices, and occasionally to buy music. I don't think that's going to change - Rob La Gesse
Robert: and there's no status updates! - Ankush Narula
Genius is still processing. - Arnie Klaus
On the bright side. Apple Ping is already monetized. - Alex de Soto
Personally I think Last.fm is the only proper music social network... it matches people based on scrobbled songs/libraries rather than who you know. Most of the people I follow on Twitter and Ping are tech folks who I probably don't have huge musical overlap with. - Ankush Narula
Arrington + Priority. .:) - Kevin Costain
Alex: good point - Ankush Narula
Arrington can donate to The Rackspace Foundation - http://rackspacefoundation.com/ - or to any other charity of his choice - Rob La Gesse
Rob: good idea. - Robert Scoble
Microsoft Marketing: Windows Phone Series 7, "Doesn't Suck Completely" - Ankush Narula
you can only comment on musics that Apple has for sale, so no Beatles discussions on iTunes - Kevin Marks
I'm checking out Ping myself.. .. - Kevin Costain
no, not going to give rackspace money. incentives aren't aligned. Scoble, sent you an offer. - Michael Arrington
Mike - that's why I added, "Or any other charity" :) - Rob La Gesse
Michael: incentives are pretty aligned anyway. If I don't keep you happy I don't keep Rackspace happy. :-) - Robert Scoble
Microsoft has no phone advantage in the enterprise - Francine Hardaway
honestly, rackspace pretty much screwed us. ain't going to happen. - Michael Arrington
daughter who works for public company is on iPhone bec. they gave her a choice - Francine Hardaway
Scoble: but if you want me to donate whatever we agree to to charity, i'll do that instead, fine. - Michael Arrington
Michael: huh? Rackspace is still hosting much of your business and is sponsoring Techcrunch Disrupt. - Robert Scoble
What is going on Mike and Rackspace? - Francine Hardaway
there is no mob anymore Mike! - Nick Halstead
its only us! - Nick Halstead
Francine - we moved to them based on promises of them keeping us live and oh boy did they flail. This rackspace cloud is a joke. And it really hurt us. - Michael Arrington
Ouch - Ankush Narula
Oh boy, Mike. Ouch. Is Rackspace THAT bad? - Kevin Costain
Robert - oh, they're sponsoring disrupt! then i take back everything i said. I LOVE RACKSPACE. lol. - Michael Arrington
Michael - let's not air dirty laundry in public - especially since it is impolite for me to enter the debate. Sites like live.gdgt.com serve millions of simultaneous connections without issue. - Rob La Gesse
what i love is that our sponsors, like rackspace and microsoft, are fine with me trashing them sometimes. respect. but rackspace cloud is a huge pile of fail. - Michael Arrington
Robert - Is that a Substrata iPad case? - Alex de Soto
Rob - actually, go ahead and air it - truth matters, if it was more on our end, I'll stand corrected. - Michael Arrington
aren't they screwing their app developers? - Xenophrenia
great article about Flipboard -> http://steveobd.blogspot.com/2010...) - Nick Halstead
Xeno: why are they screwing developers? - Nick Halstead
Mike - I am not even interested, actually. We serve over 100K websites on our cloud. And it is growing. You had a bad experience, for a number of reasons. The reasons aren't important anymore. BTW - most of your sites are still on Rackspace Cloud, in case you didn't know :) - Rob La Gesse
Rob - I'm trying not to take "I am not even interested, actually" as representative of the whole problem we had with you guys. - Michael Arrington
Robert - Why does Steve think 'twitter' is going to absorb us? - does he mean buy or build something betteR? - Nick Halstead
they are forming their own apps and cutting off all 3rd party - like bit.ly ect - Xenophrenia
That was targeted to having a public debate, and nothing else. I am VERY interested in the actuality of what happened. - Rob La Gesse
WRONG - Nick Halstead
we are doing it right - Nick Halstead
Rob, fair 'nough. - Michael Arrington
Another week without Datasift..Nick when you going to let the cat out of the bag? - Jim Posner
Nick: Is the alpha open? - Ankush Narula
@jim - sorry the team are lazy - Nick Halstead
@jim seriously though - to a small number of developers - we will open more and more over coming weeks - Nick Halstead
Nick, can you tell us what the impact on traffic/usage has been since Twitter started competing with you? - Michael Arrington
ok thanks Nick..watching my email closely :-) - Jim Posner
I can yes - Nick Halstead
I am typing :) - Nick Halstead
yes we lost 20% at first - but we have continued to grow, twitter growing even faster, the whole point was to make the 'whole' ecosystem grow faster - Nick Halstead
This show would be much better without Gillmor - Kenny
Ev says that he is going to starting filtering tweets around events..that should be interesting - Jim Posner
we never a penny from buttons - Nick Halstead
*made - Nick Halstead
but we made twitter grow - more links = more links for us to filter + sell the data for - Nick Halstead
Nick, lost 20% of publishers? of traffic? - Michael Arrington
button impressions per day - Nick Halstead
we didnt lose many sites in grand scale of things - Nick Halstead
were still at 220,000 sites - Nick Halstead
Let Nick join the call for crying out loud.. - Kenny
and growing - but the agreement was not to suddenly switch everyone from one button to another - Nick Halstead
Kenny: it's hard to add another person onto the skype machine. We'll have Nick on when he ships. - Robert Scoble
Alright, I guess I'll buy that...seems like Gillmor is, well, being his grumpy self - Kenny
Twitter is planning on tracking all clicks and shutting off access by other url shorteners - they are setting the precedent that 3rd party developers are eventually going to be cut off ... isn't that liability in some ways for Twitter? - Xenophrenia
@kenny lol - Nick Halstead
Kenny: that's why I love him. :-) - Robert Scoble
Steve is great - I wouldnt be up at 10pm in UK to listen if he didnt have deep thoughts - Nick Halstead
I guess he's ok...I don't listen to ever show but when I do its for his guests and topics - Kenny
Steve is like a magnet - you are either attracted to him or repelled by him :) (love you, Steve!) - Rob La Gesse
lol - Kenny
I'm both - Michael Arrington
Mike: Get an iPhone ;-) - Ankush Narula
I LOVE STEVE,but then, I love many people! - Francine Hardaway
ah com'on!! - Kenny
Hey Robert - Great video with Smugmug - Kenny

"The other day I saw some politicians actually arguing in favour of not giving everyone in their country free healthcare just so they could protect the interest of their big-business healthcare buddies. Somehow, that screams "American" to me." - Chris Alexander

ThirstyFerret on "Mystery solved. I'm pretty good at using the Internet to find information. It appears that there's an atheist forum on Reddit.com. I've never used the site, but I traced the traffic back to that source. There's a discussion there among a bunch of smug atheists" (quote from the article) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The only thing I could think of reading that was: "I hope Seanette Blaylock (http://spamlds.ning.com/forum...) isn't related to Jolene" . But all is ok, because Jolene's name is spelt Blalock. *phew*" - Chris Alexander

"Despite that, there are still some things we can't do yet: handwritten communication is only accessible to people with more expensive/specialised (e.g. tablet PC / graphics tablet) hardware, and I don't know about you but that machine for getting print-outs from the bank looks a lot more user-friendly than my bank's horrific website." - Chris Alexander
