High-flying CEO quits after daughter writes list of 22 milestones he missed - 9news.com.au
"The head of a $2 trillion investment fund has revealed he quit his job after his 10-year-old daughter wrote him a note listing 22 special moments in her life he had missed. California-based Mohamed El-Erian shocked the financial world when he announced his resignation as chief executive of PIMCO in January 2014. Mr El-Erian, who made $100 million 2011 alone, said in a recent essay for Worth that his wife and daughter were at the heart of his decision to quit." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
Wow. - Joe
Just like Urban Meyer. But then he un-quit. - Marie
I think he received a wake-up call - Mo Kargas

So this just happened to me:
*grabs popcorn* - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
went shopping at Target. By the parking lot entrance was an older looking man, probably 45-50, with a gas can, holding a sign that said, "out of gas. Please help." After I parked my car I walked over to him and gave him $20. He was very gracious, explained that he was trying to get back to Fresno and thanked me profusely. As I turned back towards the entrance, this woman stopped her car... more... - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also, "these people." Lady you're lucky you were stopped where you could block traffic, because I had some thoughts to share with you about your word choice. Are people born this ignorant? - Mary Carmen from iPhone
People like that - those people, in fact (!) - are made. Sad. And good for you. And yeah, karma. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
Dunno if you've read one of Jon Carroll's annual Untied Way column, where he advocates a day of personal Untied Way charity: you go to an ATM, take out as many $20s as you can do with it being just a little uncomfortable, and whenever somebody asks for money, you give them a $20. Without worrying about what they're going to do with it. - walt crawford
[No, I did not misspell United in the previous comment: This is the Untied Way, not the United Way.] - walt crawford
Walt, I have not, but I love it. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I'd rather donate and be "wrong" than not donate and be "right". Intent is all. - Mo Kargas
I make it a point to always donate bus money when asked for it. Most of the time "bus money" is a social fiction but pride is as valuable as any coins. And it reminds me of the "5cent economy" at my sister's school where people would ask friends for five cents and you had to give it unless you really didn't have anything on you, because what kind of selfish tightfisted jerk can't spare a measley 5c? So, same thing, but scaled up to adult salaries and needs. - Deborah Fitchett

Testing the waters of frenf.it, the Italian FriendFeed clone project, thanks to an invite from Xabaras.
They're pretty far along, and they have an FF feed import feature (that I haven't tried yet). You should be able to sign up at http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... - Stephen Mack
join us on our ark! - Pea Bukowski
Ok, I'm in. Usual user name. :) - ellbeecee
Same, Jenn2D2. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mmmm io dico che Zuc non sarà molto contento.. - Yeridiani
Lris - lris from Android
Looks very cool so far. I'm holding off on importing until I decide how I want to handle a personal backup. I may just import the one room I have and DM's, and then start relatively fresh. - Jennifer Dittrich
join us... - bezdomnyj82
I'm in as technodad. Holding off on importing for a bit, though. - Technodad
I like that they have a "Trash" feature -- deleted posts and comments are saved for you to restore until you empty the trash. Supported imports so far are Twitter and Tumblr. And they have an RSS feed for your feed! - Stephen Mack
Nice! *crosses fingers for a flickr import* - Jennifer Dittrich
The nicer features are: a) the like to comment and b) the dislike! - vale (acaso)
I love the comment like! - Jennifer Dittrich
don't forget the "bookmark" option without expressing liking or disliking - bezdomnyj82
I am there same username will start linking up soon :-) - Pete's Got To Go from FFHound(roid)!
Evaluate world peace? - Laura Norvig
it's the balance between likes and dislikes :D - Pea Bukowski
Hope they add an RSS import of any sort. Lots of stuff can come in that way. - Joe
Meta. Meta World Peace? - Joe
mu username has changed from lauran to lnorvig: http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... - Laura Norvig
I'm trying to like your comments... :'D - vale (acaso)
I hope it gets a security certificate soon... - Julian
Oh... I am julian2 there as well. - Julian
I'm in, usual name, haven't yet really used it. Hard for an Anglophile to understand the T&C. - walt crawford
I'm in. bentleywg, like here. I'll look into it later, but I'm in. - bentley
Hmm. Tried to look at it, and my account's been disabled. That was fast. I'll try again in a few days. - walt crawford
Walt, all accounts start as disabled until you confirm the e-mail they send. It took about 30 minutes for me to get my e-mail and enable my account when I signed up. - Stephen Mack
come to the frenf.it side, we have cookies - Lucretia, my reflection ൠ
It's being developed by one person as a side-project, and he's under some pressure given the Apr 9 deadline. It might be rough here and there, but please try and be patient :) - PI
Hmm, I didn't get any confirmation email, but I started off by trying to create via hookup to my Twitter account. - Andrew C (✔)
In as oajoe. - Joe
My email came instantly :) - Brent Schaus from iPhone
I got mine pretty fast as well. - Jennifer Dittrich
(Also if someone is in touch with FF founders or maintainers, we'd love to understand if there's a better/more efficient way to transfer content over there) - PI
hi there. - aurora
keep in mind that frenf.it is a pet projcet of senape, and he does not have a lot of bandwidth (and disk space: this is why for example pics and videos are not stored locally) - .mau.
PI or .mau. feel free to give him my contact info james@jimminy.me, and I can help provide some advice (about the efficiency of transfer) and maybe offer some storage facilities.) Right now, I'm also pushed by the deadline, to extend the life of content while also reducing strain on FriendFeed's servers, and providing better archives, but only have 5-6 hours a day to give, except on the weekends. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Hi Jimminy, I am the author of one of the "export scripts" out there (https://github.com/claudio...) I have just a simple question (which is a recurring one, by the users of my script): Do you know the reason behind the API limit? Is it set to prevent the server stress or just because the data is not there anymore? Thank you! - Claudio Cicali
@Claudio: the data still exists. Jimminy wrote that deleting newer posts the older ones appear, and that there is a kind of resilience, so that you may *undelete* the newer posts. So, I think that it was just a hard-coded limit. - .mau.
@Jimminy - I'll try to contact senape, but I am not sure that he will answer promptly (he works in Brussels but his family is still in Italy, and a couple of hours ago he wrote that he was taking a plane to return home...) - .mau.
It's fine, I have a relaxed enough schedule, that I can respond at his leisure. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Looks like this has been around about 2 or more years. - Joe
^ data is definitely there: I can follow 'earlier' links on my feed page up to the very first post, but these early post are neither exportable nor even searchable any more. - 9000
Do I take this to mean you guys have dropped Ello? *ducking for cover* - Stephan Planken from iPhone
*admires the huge brains in this thread* - MoTO Boychick Devil
@9000: that would be phase 2 of import, according to Senape. Have a look at http://frenf.it/earlyad... and http://frenf.it/earlyad... - .mau.
Stephan, I'm optimistic about Ello in the long-term but I don't think it will ever be similar to here. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
me http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... ... what is ello? - Halil
@Claudio, it's possible, but you have to store the id's of the posts, while processing, then you delete the oldest 500-1000 posts (1 request for each deletion), fetch 10 more pages of 100 posts each (start=9x00-10000), repeat that process until you hit the end with a page less than 100 items, then you restore all the posts you marked deleted, (another request for every post deleted). - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
So I registered, MaryCarmen. How do I find you folks? - Mary Carmen
for y'all English speakers: on http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... we'll try to answer questions. Keep however in mind that frenf.it is closed source: I for one do not know its inner workings, even if I am using it since it started in 2012 - .mau.
Very glad you're joining! Feel free to ask your questions here or in the the official room in frenf.it http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... I do my best to reply to everybody, but for the faq i'll provide an english version of the faq soon (maybe tonight after midnight gmt+1) - senape. quello di frenfit
My FF import is going slow, and meanwhile neither my Tumblrs nor my Twitter accounts, which I've hooked up to frenf, have started importing anything. - Andrew C (✔)
@Walt, terms and conditions are pretty easy, they're written in complicated lawyer style. Pretty much, they say that you are the only responsible for what you write and post and comment. You are the only owner of whatever you write, and once you delete it is deleted forever, but a copy on the backup for legal reasons, and you cannot post hate or racist messages. Kinda. - senape. quello di frenfit

Ehi, Old and New friends, I kinda started a thanking meme here ( http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... )for Senape, the developer, by taking a picture with your mustard (senap) - bezdomnyj82
senape: Not really too worried about the T&C--and yes, my confirming email link came and I seem to be in now. Bookmarked in my tiny "sn section"; I'll try it here and there. (Been to Italy, more than once, thanks.) - walt crawford
Be my guest! :) I wish you all will stay, I'm working very hard to improve its performance. After the final development of the friendfeed import, I'll re-activate the real time feature, so that comments and posts will be updated without refreshing the page. - senape. quello di frenfit
Halil: it is a relatively new social network. Several people here signed up (including myself) but it didn't seem to gain much traction. https://ello.co - Stephan Planken from iPhone

http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... Here I am, testing the import function right now - لرد فرهاد
Thanks guys for this great project, but as the deadline approaches we're in desperate need of a full backup script / function that can bypass 10100 API limit. if anyone can help, Claudio's script is a fantastic baseline to start. - لرد فرهاد
Non ci pou trasferire della friendfeed, ancora? Quando pensi che possiamo transferire tutti? Grazie! - نومیا
The problem is that the approach suggested by jimminy is quite dangerous: DOWNLOAD XXX posts, DELETE XXX posts, DOWNLOAD XXX + 1 ... and then at the end re-post everything. Doing this with an automated script would generate too many corner cases (what it the delete fails? What if the download fails but NOT the delete? What if SOME download/delete fails? What if the re-post is not succesfull?) etc... - Claudio Cicali
mille Grazie ragazzi... Noi, ragazzi da Iran, tutti aspettiamo per boun risultati. Molto strano, ma perche voglono fermare Friendfeed. vi Aspettiamo! - نومیا
I'm webgoddess in Italian, too. Look at me being all multinational. - WebGoddess from Android
Claudio we will lost our whole data in less than a month, the risk is completely acceptable, it's a little bit dramatic to say but having a chance is better than not doing anything to save our data at all - لرد فرهاد
Boun Lavoro! - نومیا
Is there anyone willing to donate an almost empty account to the cause? FF doesn't allow to create new accounts, and if I – or whoever else – wants to try this road, we need a "guinea pig" account to test the feasibility of the idea. I won't test it on mine :) The idea would be to "pump" thousand of posts on that account and the try to back them up... several times. - Claudio Cicali
Aspetta! forse ce'! - نومیا

I've never read anything written by Terry Pratchett. I'm so impressed by the outpouring of love for him. What would you recommend as a first book?
I think "The Colour of Water" is in the house somewhere, unless Kelly took it. It was the only legitimate paperback I bought in Beijing. - Jessie
In a lot of ways, "Going Postal" can be a good start (the world he's built is pretty well established, but the character you're starting with is new, and building a new life.) "Nation," as a stand alone, is also pretty great, but unrelated to the Discworld stuff. - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks for the recommendations. :) - Anne Bouey
http://www.lspace.org/books... - depending on what you like, I would say either the Tiffany Aching novels ("young adult"), Death series, Witches series, or Guards series would be best. Rincewind series were the first, and most Douglas Adams-ish, and he grew away from that direction over time. Still enjoyable. - Andrew C (✔)
I loved "Witches Abroad" and his collaboration with Neil Gaiman, "Good Omens" - vicster.
'Equal Rites' is a fun satire. 'Pyramids' is fun for all the wordplay. Any of the Rincewind books ('Color of Magic', 'Light Fantastic', 'Interesting Times' are my faves) are hilarious. - Anika
Thanks, all. :) - Anne Bouey
I'll second Good Omens since it's standalone. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

FFExp2HTMLex.php - "Paging Edition" (customization of Claudio Cicali's FF archive-to-HTML script by Micah Wittman) - Converts the output of ffexp.php into multiple HTML page files - Version 0.5 (2015-03-12) - https://gist.github.com/wittman...
FFExp2HTMLex.png
Show all
For those of us who aren't really scripters or programmers, how do we use this? I was able to use Claudio's script on MacOS via the Terminal. Not sure what to do with this, though. - Spidra Webster
Spidra, I'll try to explain a bit. In OS X terminal you can run the converter with this: (next comment) - Micah
php FFExp2HTMLex.php my_ff_stream.json - Micah
At minimum you have to open the FFExp2HTMLex.php file and put your FF username in the blank $username = ""; so it is $username = "spidra"; - Micah
Spidra, to clarify a bit: Claudio's script has two parts. Part 1 downloads your feed and saves it as a JSON file. Part 2 converts the JSON file into an HTML file. Micah wrote a replacement for part 2 that uses paging instead of one big file. - Stephen Mack
Thanks. I'm still having trouble writing the right thing in Terminal. Right now I'm in the WebServer Documents folder but the .json file is in the user documents folder. Not sure how to rewrite the command to do that. - Spidra Webster
chris, I'll do one better and put a few pages on my website (I've done a "Save As" in Chrome and have just uploaded that output so I don't have to upload my entire ff_images folder—which has everything—and would take a while. Hang on. - Micah
Okay, here it is: http://wittman.org/ff... - Micah
Spidra, can you copy the .json file to the other folder? - Stephen Mack
Did Chris delete his comment? - Stephen Mack
Oh, looks that way. - Micah
I was a bit worried to do that, Stephen, since I figured Claudio had written his whole script to place that folder and associated images there. I don't know what I'll break by moving it. - Spidra Webster
Yeah I was using FF on my phone, and my phone was lagging, and I got a little tap happy and poof goes the comment. - chrisofspades
Looks like Claudio's script uses relative folder references for the images in the "ff_media" folder, so if you copy/move the folder, it'll work in any location. - Stephen Mack
Thank you. It's a big folder so I didn't want to duplicate it if I could avoid it. And thanks to Micah for writing so many custom things for FFers. - Spidra Webster
I keep getting the following error when I open up the ff_out.html file: C:\xampp\php\FFExp2HTMLex.php on line 201 Notice: Undefined variable: n i - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Just added you to my circles. - Friar Will

Thanks Will-burr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Already on my list. :-) What do you think of it? I'm really liking it. - Kol Tregaskes
Seems exactly like Facebook. Not terribly exciting. - Vezquex
The big difference between Facebook and Google+ (that I can see from a very quick look) is that you can share to certain groups of friends instead of ALL of them. And that you can create many groups. The Sparks feature looks very interesting and I really do like the UI. - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol, sharing with specific groups of friends possible with Facebook. You can list your friends and then hide a post from lists or show it only to those lists. - batuhan icoz
Sounds long-winded? Either way I prefer Google+ over Facebook (a lot more) but I'm not sure it's as good as FriendFeed. Saying that I think it's only time I'll move to Google+. Like I say a lot on here, it's all down to the people and I see a LOT of FriendFeeders over there there already. The features are important too (though secondary) and I hear the Google dev team are adding new things all the time. - Kol Tregaskes
there's a way to invite people actually... - Alb. [CHIUSO]
Alb, there appears to be many sites posting workarounds but every time Google plugs the hole. What way have you found that works? - Kol Tregaskes
i was invited in with a message sent from within g+ to my gmail account. - Alb. [CHIUSO]
Yes. From g+, you can share a message with a single gmail account and this gives him/her access. Sometimes, it doesn't arrive immediately, - PaperDoll
/getalife - LANjackal
I don't have one yet. I'm lost at the trailing edge of technology. - Nick B.
You've been able to create groups of Facebook friends to selectively share for a while. They just don't make it intuitive to use. (edit - I see Batuhan already said this). It's under Friends -> Create a list. - Nick B.
Nick, ah. Never used it. Google+ makes it a doddle. - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol, check out http://circlehack.com :) - batuhan icoz
Batuhan, yeah I've seen that. It took FB that long and Google+ to appear to get them to make that. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Looks like I already have you in my circles, Bryan. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Kol yes indeed. How do you like Google+ so far? - BRҰANSAҰS
Bryan, it's amazing service. Not been this excited about a new service since, well FriendFeed. :-) About about yourself? - Kol Tregaskes
luv it how they all talk about google+ , but on FF - hey take you g+ talk into your G-spot.. I mean G-cricle and talk away - Peter Dawson
Kol, I'm luving it so far. Can't wait till its out of invite only. - BRҰANSAҰS
Me too. - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks all! - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Ryan. - Kol Tregaskes
Still no invite! :( - Son of Groucho
Boo, Google are slow with new invites atm. - Kol Tregaskes

Heidi, Mary, perhaps post your URLs here? - Kol Tregaskes

Thanks Justin. - Kol Tregaskes
I would like you follow you all wherever you are moving to or are right now. Can you please add your profile here and share to others so we can gather everyone's URLs in one place above? - Kol Tregaskes
I don't hide the fact that Google+ is my favourite social network after FriendFeed. I really, really hope you try Google+. It's improved a lot since it first launched and the Communities are just like FriendFeed Rooms. - Kol Tregaskes
I would suggest this is the best place for FFers: https://plus.google.com/communi... - Kol Tregaskes
This is after all the All Things Google group and Google+ is a Google product. Not sure why there is so much reluctance to use Google+ - Michael Norris

You might not like Google+, FriendFeeders but you might like Diaspora. Anyone on here use it, if so what's your profile URL? Mine is https://joindiaspora.com/people...

There is a tag for FriendFeed here: https://joindiaspora.com/tags... - Kol Tregaskes
I had an account but it got deleted or something. It was all quite confusing. - Laura Norvig
I avoided it because I didn't trust the team. Then in March I read this article, http://queue.acm.org/detail..., and it moved even further out of sight. Just some negligent choices relating to security. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
That looks very techy, so there are security issues? - Kol Tregaskes
I think they fixed most of those, but I personally have no trust in the team at maintaining security through the evolution of the product. The one benefit is that it's open-source so other groups can help find issues, but not exactly optimistic about it. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
It needs a real name. - Zato Gibson
i'm waiting since 7 months for my invite.. nothing.. #faildiaspora - Giorgio Marandola
Giorgio, perhaps DM me your address and I'll send an invite which might turn up faster? - Kol Tregaskes
I would like you follow you all wherever you are moving to or are right now. Can you please add your profile here and share to others so we can gather everyone's URLs in one place above? - Kol Tregaskes

micah, there is a Turkish legend; a fallen man called Kayahan pursuits love for years and years, he digs mountains, builds tunnels binding Europe and Anatolia by a huge underwater tube named Marmaray in order to keep tracking his beloved one but dies before fulfilling his destiny of coming together with his lover.

I'm not really motivated to archive. If I ever go back and look at old posts it's to bump them and talk about them with you all.
I agree. I did it because of my posts about my girls (I am making an archive for them). It is not unlike real world conversations of which you have only memories. We will survive without having transcripts. - Stephan Planken

Do any of the FF tech savvy here have a program that will "threadsuck" posts?
Yes, I have a copy of one someone else made -- will post in a few mins. - Stephen Mack
I have one that I can host, but I might have to rewrite it. I think the one Stephen has, doesn't address the 10k API limit. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I may convert FFTOP20 into a data reservoir, since it has the API bindings for oauth, which would allow me to bypass privacy, and rebuild the database. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Unfortunately, more than 6000 (I think) most recent posts are really hard to get, because the paging in the results maxes out. - Andy Bakun
Even that would be helpful, Andy. FF is the closest thing I keep to a diary and I just want to get those entries as best I can. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, I've been collecting my own feed for a while (17,516 entries, oldest is 2008-12-02), because it's been the same thing for me. I may write my own personal aggregator, since I get a lot of value of the diary/archive aspect of it (more so than the sharing/social aspects), but it may be tough going since RSS is out of favor now and everything seems like OAUTH walled gardens. - Andy Bakun
It's not really viewable, it just ends up in an sqlite database (unlike Facebook's archive thingy, last time I used it, it emitted a zip file containing viewable HTML (which is otherwise largely useless for anything other than looking at it, no stats, or themeing or anything). - Andy Bakun
Andy, I have one of the last working OAUTH implementations, with keys and endpoints. So I could feasibly provide a slower scrape that builds out comments, as well as posts, and reattaches relations across the site, instead of just for a single user. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Oh, I'm not concerned about Friendfeed's OAUTH implementation, but rather the rest of the internet's, which, I think makes it hard to get your own data out. - Andy Bakun
But, yeah, whatever you can do to archive whatever's public would be great. - Andy Bakun
Unfortunately, I don't have access to a full blown scraping parser built over the API. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Andy, have you eaten lunch yet? I'm working just a block or two from you (I'm at Market & 2nd), if you want to discuss some stuff. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I have not eaten lunch yet. - Andy Bakun
And have DM'ed you. (do the kids still call it that? "DM"?) - Andy Bakun
There's a few offering to help: - Kol Tregaskes
FriendFeed Backup Creator 1.9.2.0 - http://ff.im/14uWgc - Koleksiyoner Ali
Andy, since I don't program or script, it can be a little hard for me to understand what I'm looking at. Am I correct that your script requires a sqlite database to be installed? - Spidra Webster
No, it *creates* the sqlite database. Sqlite is an "embedded" database, it doesn't require any extra services to be running. The output of my script is a single file that contains all the data it exported, including embedded media, in a structured format. Using my script does require sqlite python modules to be installed, however. - Andy Bakun

The creepy but definitive list of FriendFeed employees and where they work now. UPDATE: As of October 2, 2012, *three* still work at Facebook. Still true as of November 20, 2013.

Show all
With Paul's departure from Facebook today (November 12, 2010), I've heard several FFers talk about who's still at Facebook. I've seen various different numbers, none of which I think are accurate. This is my attempt to be more accurate. Information comes from publicly available sources where available. I drew on the list of FF employees from http://friendfeed.com/about... and http://blog.friendfeed.com/. - Stephen Mack
Ana Yang http://friendfeed.com/ana: Chief Miscellaneous Officer at Quip, per https://quip.com/about/ and had left Facebook around September 2012 (see Tudor B.'s comment from 9/20/2012 below). Formerly Places Product Manager at Facebook (see http://www.guardian.co.uk/technol...). - Stephen Mack

Ross Miller http://friendfeed.com/ross: Taylor Engineering in Alameda per his Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ross...). (Ross was a two-time intern at FF.) - Stephen Mack
Tudor Bosman http://friendfeed.com/tudor: Software Engineer at Facebook (see http://www.linkedin.com/in...). - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of November 2010: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 8 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Jim N., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 5 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
I will update the above if I hear news. - Stephen Mack
Technically my first day at Mozilla isn't until Monday. :-) - Kevin Fox
I will also remove this if any FF employees think it's too creepy. :) - Stephen Mack
Ross Miller's account: http://friendfeed.com/ross - Rochelle
You are both thorough and scary :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
KLevin, tehcnically, this is your last day here and your not part of the FF team ! - Peter Dawson
Me too, Geoff. - Kevin Fox
Thanks Rochelle, updated! Kevin F., edited now, thanks. :) - Stephen Mack
Peter, what? Today is my last day where? And I left Facebook (and the FF team) back in May. - Kevin Fox
Of those still left at FB, I only see Tudor and Ben who are still active here and have contributed to FF fixes since the buyout. - Rodfather
Kevin mea culpa .. now i remember you want on a summer sabbatical ! - Peter Dawson
No worries. :-) - Kevin Fox
Rodfather, I'm not active here? - Kevin Fox
Of those still left at FB. ;) - Rodfather
I love the iFly photo of us. We are a great big arm rainbow!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Yeah, Paul and April were missing from that picture because that was the day Thomas was born! - Kevin Fox
Rod: Oops, my bad. I saw 'left FB' and missed the 'at'. - Kevin Fox
Wild AND Crazy - Eric - Final Countdown
OK, took some editing but I think the above is accurate. If anyone knows where Ross M. or Goutham P. are now, please let me know! - Stephen Mack
Many thanks to people who provided info, especially Rochelle. - Stephen Mack
Rachel: That's definitely an awesome pic. I had a hard time choosing, you guys had a lot of great events. - Stephen Mack
Wow that is a great list I should probably try an add a few people. FriendFeed very good micro blogging, thanks. - Robert Bridge
Thanks Robert! Updated Ross's employer with information Anne B. found on his Facebook page. - Stephen Mack
He made them an offer that they could eventually refuse? - Stephen Mack
*snicker* - Big Joe Silenced
Bump in honor of today's FB IPO. Time to do more creepy digging to see what's up with the FF team! - Stephen Mack
Updated Gary's entry. - Stephen Mack
Updated Jim's entry. He's apparently left Facebook. (I think I remember him confirming this when I had lunch with him last month!) - Stephen Mack
Updated Kevin's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 2012: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 7 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
Stephen, Goutham worked at RockYou for a bit in 2010 and now works for Google. Also, how have I not seen this thread before?! I remember you taking that picture at Kitchen Table - fun times :) - Ross Miller
now this is creepy.. some1 is stalking all the former employees of FF :)- - Peter Dawson
Peter, I wonder who? Ross, thanks! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jim is now at AeroFS. - Anne Bouey
Stephen, also Goutham was a summer intern the year before the Facebook buy. He did not transfer to Facebook. Ross did you transfer to Facebook, I can't remember. - Rachel Lea Fox
oh and I think Ben D. has left AOL. But I can't confirm that, I just seem to remember something about that. *shrug* - Rachel Lea Fox
Anne, AeroFS looks cool! Congrats Jim!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Ben Darnell is at Dropbox. - Tudor Bosman
Also, Dan Hsiao is no longer at Facebook (no more details). - Tudor Bosman
Goutham Patnaik is at Google. - Tudor Bosman
And yes, both Ross and Goutham were interns and were never Facebook employees after the acquisition. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor! Updated above. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 22, 2012: Of the 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees plus 2 interns, 6 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.), and 2 were interns who never went to Facebook (Ross M., Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
And now there are five. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Indeed. I'll update when I get back from vacation -- by then we should know more about Bret's new venture. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oops, I see I never updated this. Stand by. - Stephen Mack
Bret's entry updated. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of June 15, 2012 (updated on September 13, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 5 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 7 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
So basically we're gradually losing FF advocates within the mothership. :-( - DB, Lil LB's Dad
So clearly we need to either recruit current FB'ers to start using FF or get FF users employed FB, or both. - Andrew C (✔)
13 Sep 2012: what was the cause of the outage? But perhaps more importantly, *who* kindly fixed it (and from where) ? [If FB open sources FF, who would be willingly to maintain it?] - Adriano
And whoever it was, I'd happily buy them a nice dinner. - Meg VMeg
Per Tudor (in this thread http://friendfeed.com/friendf...) it was Sanjeev who saved us. THANK YOU SANJEEV! - Stephen Mack
SANJEEV! - Josh Haley
bump just to immortalise this pix and the start-up crew ! - Peter Dawson
Ana left Facebook, no more details. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor -- I updated her entry. Overall status, as of September 20, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 4 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 8 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
Thanks Tudor and Stephen for the update. - Meg VMeg
Casey left Facebook as well (which, as he's Ana's husband, is no big surprise :) ). No more details. - Tudor Bosman
Ah, so three now. Thanks Tudor. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Not sure how I missed Tudor's update back on October 2, but I have now updated Casey's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of October 2, 2012: There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M. and Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above. So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 3 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 9 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Casey M., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., and Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
An update of sorts, which I guess is in and of itself creepy. I was reading a recent piece on Google Reader, and I was struck by the fact that Darnell jumped from Google Reader to FriendFeed (there are similarities between the two orphaned applications, when you think about it). Then I saw that Darnell made his move right before the Facebook acquisition. After reading subsequent... more... - John E. Bredehoft
Bump. Updated a few folks above to show they're at Quip. I think it's still the case that 3 of the 12 are at Facebook (Ben, Sanjeev, Tudor). - Stephen Mack
Thanks for the update Stephen! - Zu from AOD
Bump! I think the count is still three. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Bump. - Crisco
Whats the number now? - Me
I don't think it's changed. - Stephen Mack
I never noticed how creepy that first pic was. Not waving, but...? - Meg VMeg
Meg, I surprised them when the FF employees were eating lunch at a restaurant on Castro in Mt View, now closed. (I think I was stopping by to give Kevin something.) I wanted to take their picture but it was bad lighting so I told them to pretend I was a paparazzi stalking them ("no pictures please"). I might be able to dig up the original post. (EDIT: Original post is here: http://friendfeed.com/zeigen...) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Sean McBride
Slack, the Office Messaging App That May Finally Sink Email - NYTimes.com - http://www.nytimes.com/2015...
I don't see an equivalent here for the FF bookmarklet for sharing webpages. - Sean McBride
A possible substitute for Friendfeed? -- so far, I am thinking not. - Sean McBride
Requires a single domain name for the Slack account. Such as a companies email domain address and then employees with corporate email address can sign up. It sends a validation email as well to that email address. So to do this someone would need to host an email server with a domain that alias accounts can be setup that forwards to a separate real email address that they can recieve the validation email from. - Me
It has some very cool features for sharing and discussing information, but the environment is closed not open -- and the interface overall doesn't feel as intuitive and simple as FF. - Sean McBride

Brian Johns
My favorite FriendFeed moment: When I changed my screen name to "You", and started posting comments to other people's posts. Hilarity ensued as people thought they had posted comments they hadn't. They asked me to please change it back and then made it so you can't do that anymore.
I imagine there's an if() block somewhere in the FF codebase with a comment that says "Because of Brian Johns." - Brian Johns
It was You that did that. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I remember adding an if() block to FFtop20, that would turn everyone's avatar into Stephen Mack, for Louis Gray, because he kept saying it was a bug that Stephen showed up so prominently in everyone's results. Then I made it a feature that could be turned on through a query parameter. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Hahha. I remember that, Brian. Sweet, sweet hack. - Micah from FFHound!
