Did the "Share on FriendFeed" bookmarklet change? The URL of the bookmarked page now appears to be appended as part of the message, rather than as metadata like it was before. Is that a regression or an intentional change?
That confused me originally, but I think it may be intentional. - imabonehead
I hope it is just a temporary regression. Bookmarks with links are what I most frequently share to FriendFeed. - DeWitt Clinton
The backup plan - post to Delicious instead - fails because you can't share add images when sharing via Delicious. Which brings us back to: http://friendfeed.com/dewitt... - DeWitt Clinton
Oh no, it looks like they removed links entirely and even went back and retroactively changed all old posts to append links to the message. - DeWitt Clinton
The url metadata is still there for imported links (edit a delicious post, and you can see the url isn't in the text). But not being able to manually specify the url metadata is a major step backwards IMO. The bookmarklet and the "share" functionality are now a mess, for example images don't know where to link to. In the beginning of the beta release, some FFer said that they were debating bringing it back, but I guess they decided not to. - Daniel Sims
I'm pretty sad about this. It's a step away from where I hoped the product would go. I acknowledge that I am rarely, if ever, representative of popular opinion, so it might be a perfectly good overall decision for FriendFeed, but it will impact how much I personally use it. Sigh. - DeWitt Clinton
On a related matter, showing the URLs directly makes FriendFeed look so much more backwards, considering that URLs aren't necessarily meant to be readable. - Yoo Chung
Yoo, agreed, FF uses leading "http://xyz" string to recognize any url (will not enhance, say, tinyurl.com as some other clients might), yet doesn't do anything about it. I already suggested that, as a start, it ought to replace detected FF-internal ones with uniform "[ff]" hyperlinks, and "[#ff] for such with #anchors, and the outside ones with hyperlinked e.g. "domain/.../last-element-in-path-sans-suffix". - ianf ⌘
DeWitt, it's definitely intentional change, and a good one too! Among other things it means you can now substitute, edit or amend the OP-url after posting, just as you could do that with plaintext urls in comments' bodies. Also very useful for e.g. linking the url to NO-CACHE printable verison of a page, while any picture retains the link to ordinary/ ad-infested one. - ianf ⌘

Media Troubled By Long-term Thinking - http://skepticblog.org/2009...
Eric Alterman from The Daily Beast has an interesting analysis of President Obama’s recent press conference. His take on the coverage of the event was that the press are troubled by Obama’s long-term thinking, which doesn’t mesh well with their short-term news cycles. CNN wants emotions, theatrics, the stamping of feet, mano-a-mano anger, and outrage contests. [...]

Were the original data linking vaccines and autism faked? - http://skepticblog.org/2009...
The UK-based Sunday Times has a potential bombshell on their site; they claim Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who started the whole "vaccines cause autism" garbage, faked his data to make that claim. About 10 years ago, Wakefield published a study dealing with children who were autistic, developing symptoms shortly after getting their shots, and linked this with [...]

"As my correspondent pointed out, this is a fairly famous survey. It's published in textbooks on the sociology of human sexuality and the point is obviously to make people think about their assumptions about homosexuality. Making people think, of course, is a real problem for those who don't like to think - especially about their prejudices." - Tanath from Bookmarklet
Most people's heads explode when confronted with gender issues.. middlesex, man raised as girl, pregnant man, etc. etc. They really should get past the homo panic, there are more exotic things to be offended by :) - Richard Walker
