BBS door games: Social Gaming innovation from the 1980s | @andrewchen
"It’s obvious, in retrospect, that a lot of the door games that existed 20 years ago pioneered a lot of the same techniques that social games use today. Let’s drill into a bunch of these similarities, covering the following topics:" - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Did you draw that picture by hand in raw ANSI? - Steve and 4 other people
I don't remember where that came from, but I'm guessing one of the players made that in TheDraw or other ANSI art editor. Ahhh, TheDraw. Such fond memories I have of that. - Amit Patel
Ah, memories... - Dan Hsiao
Memories. I just got interviewed about SRE so it brought back lots of memories. And it made me realize I have none of my projects from those days, just some old notes on paper. - Amit Patel
Looks like somebody rewrote SRE and update the graphics for a web interface. http://starpires.com/ Of course, I wouldn't be able to compare it to the original, it's almost as old as I am, and I've only dropped into a BBS once or twice. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
There have been lots of attempts to remake SRE, and Starpires is probably the best developed. - Amit Patel
I'm the dude who's been interviewing Amit about SRE... If anyone knows who drew that ANSI screen, I'd *love* to hear. I had always assumed it was the official title screen, and was surprised to learn it was not! - Josh Renaud
It've might be official but I don't remember it! :( - Amit Patel
Mehul says that he included player submitted artwork with the game distributions, at least for BRE, AC6, FE, etc., so it's likely that this artwork was distributed with SRE, so I guess we can say it's "official" :) - Amit Patel

Sal Khan's Commencement address - MIT News Office
"Start every morning with a smile — even a forced one — it will make you happier. Replace the words “I have to” with “I get to” in your vocabulary. Smile with your mouth, your eyes, your ears, your face, your body at every living thing you see. Be a source of energy and optimism. Surround yourself with people that make you better. Realize or even rationalize that the grass is truly greener on your side of the fence. Just the belief that it is becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy." - Keith Pelczarski from Bookmarklet
Great commencement speech... lots more useful, inspiring stuff in the full text. - Keith Pelczarski

My brother Rob texted me just now. He and my sister-in-law Kelly are heading to the hospital so she can be induced (she's a few days past the due date). So my new niece is likely to be arriving in the next 24-48 hours. I'm very excited for them. :)
Thanks, although my part is easy. :) The baby's name will be Amelia, a name I really like. (He was advocating Aurora previously, which is a bit of a tough name to saddle a kid with.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Aw!!!! Got any pregnant Kelly photos? I'll bet she's in fabulous shape. Tell them I said hi and congrats to you Uncle Stephen!!!! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

Swahili symbol for “Hakuna Matata”.  I got this as...
"Swahili symbol for “Hakuna Matata”. I got this as a matching tattoo on my wrist with my mom and grandma. It means a lot to me, since I have struggled with anxiety disorder for most of my life, this tattoo is a constant reminder to worry less as well as a reminder of the bond I share with my mother and grandmother." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Apparently a whole lot of people think Swahili is written in symbols: https://www.google.com/search... - Andrew C (✔)
LOL I was wondering about that. Wow, that's as bad as the fake Chinese alphabet. - Jessie
I just assumed this was a stylized Mandombe thing. - Anika

No, I just like the designs that other people get. - Jessie

Good day. Spent the morning reading algebra/geometry papers. Spent the afternoon coding. Wrote all my tests, made sure they passed, checked in code. Now it's time to relax and play a game…
First egg nog of the season: gotten. My kid is overjoyed.
i looked for it today while shopping; not yet in stock, :( - chaz2b
Eggs, heavy cream, sugar, nutmeg, bourbon... always in stock. - Julian
(i was being lazy) - chaz2b
well, i have suger & nutmeg - chaz2b
and some southern pecan creamer - chaz2b
That's another thing I still have to try. Never had egg nog or Nutella. - Rodfather
<3 egg nog - the original, liquored up kind, and the other stuff too. Alex Scrivener's recipe from a few years ago is deadly, in the best of ways. - Jennifer Dittrich
You have to enjoy thick creamy textures and rich flavors to enjoy egg nog. People I know who don't like it often say it's because it's too thick. Also it's dairy so drinking before bed might result in you offending your significant other. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

List of the nation’s most common names released - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"Do not be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by men named Chia-hao (家豪) or women named Shu-fen (淑芬), because according to the latest statistics released by the Ministry of the Interior, those two names are the most popular given names for boys and girls respectively in the country. “Chia-hao” tops the “market name” — a term commonly used in Taiwan to describe names heard repeatedly when shopping in markets — list for men, with 14,229 people having the name across the country. Chih-ming (志明) follows with 14,022, Chun-chieh (俊傑) with 12,695, Chien-hung (建宏) with 12,695 and Chun-hung (俊宏) with 11,812, the data showed. Chih-ming was the most popular name for men in the last census statistics, released in 2010." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The women’s name Shu-fen remains the top “market name” this year, with 33,063 women in the country sharing the name, the statistics showed. Shu-hui (淑惠) follows with 30,935, Mei-ling (美玲) with 27,914, Ya-ting (雅婷) with 25,103 and Mei-hui (美惠), with 24,312 people." - Jessie
"“When we break the data into decades, we can see there are different popular names for different generations and there are always social phenomena behind the popular names of each generation,” Deputy Minister of the Interior Chien Tai-lang (簡太郎) said. “For instance, the top three most popular boys’ names in the 1930s and 1940s were Cheng-hsiung (正雄), Wu-hsiung (武雄) and Wen-hsiung (文雄),... more... - Jessie
"In the 1960s and the 1970s, popular names for boys were Chih-ming, (志明, “having a clear goal in life”), “Chih-hao” (志豪, “having a great objective in life”) and Chih-cheng (志成, “accomplishing one’s goals in life”) because with more financial stability, parents started wanting their children to achieve more, he said. “As a middle class has been created nowadays, the most popular names... more... - Jessie
It was a little easier to spot the names associated with certain decades in Mainland China. I knew a handful of people in their 40's with names like 小红 (Little Red One) and 国伟 (National Guardian/Protector of the Nation). They were born during the Cultural Revolution; parents gave their kids names like this to prove their loyalty to Mao and the Communist Party, and hopefully to avoid harassment from the Red Guards. - Jessie

San Francisco is a sea of orange and black but it has nothing to do with Halloween :-)
Nothing can top the street party after the 49ers won the Super Bowl in, what, 84? Or 83, old lady don't remember. I got this guy who liked me to drive me & my girls to The City, it was amazing & crazy but no rioting bullshit. We were out there til like 1 am & I got in so much trouble when I got home, but it was totally worth it. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

It's that time of year again, that's right the time of year where I annoy my cat by dressing her up for Halloween. Her nickname is Toothless because she reminds us so much of the dragon from How to Train Your Dragon. Indy is not as amused as I am!!!

I'd be worried if she wasn't such a pushover! she is all bark a no bite! - Rachel Lea Fox

I don't think either of mine would ever let me dress them up. I'm a little jealous. - Katy S
Indy complains while I put her in it, but she never really fights me. And once she is in it, she doesn't complain at all. Just gives me the looks you see. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
OMG! I'm trying not to LOL because Em is asleep but HER FACE!!!!! - Melly
If she knew how to catch a mouse I'd be more worried ArMyZ, but I'm her food source and she has had many opportunities already and I'm still alive. She's too lazy to kill me, that is the secret to having a pet cat, make them lazy!! - Rachel Lea Fox from iPhone

"The sharing and re-sharing of videos on social sites, blogs e-mail, and other means has given rise to the phenomenon of viral videos—videos that become popular through internet sharing. In this paper we seek to better understand viral videos on YouTube by analyzing sharing and its relationship to video popularity using millions of YouTube videos. The socialness of a video is quantified by classifying the referrer sources for video views as social (e.g. an emailed link, Facebook referral) or non-social (e.g. a link from related videos). We find that viewership patterns of highly social videos are very different from less social videos." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"We also find that not all highly social videos become popular, and not all popular videos are highly social. By using our insights on viral videos we are able develop a method for ranking blogs and websites on their ability to spread viral videos." - Amit Patel

"Every facet, every department of your mind, is to be programmed by you. And unless you assume your rightful responsibility, and begin to program your own mind, the world will program it for you."
Not sure where it came from. Possibly Jack Kornfield. Heard it quoted in a song. - Paul Buchheit
Is that your answer to my question about HGTV? - Clare Dibble
Before you can program your mind you need to deprogram it, and the best way to deprogram it is to get to the bottom of and master intellectual history -- the invented and artificial but influential ideological tape loops that control collective human behavior among all cultures, and about which most people are entirely unconscious. Fully conscious people create and control cultural and ideological systems and loops, they are not controlled by them. - Sean McBride
Too much work. Just tell me the answer. - sofarsoShawn
I googled it for Shawn. It's a quote from Jack Kornfield (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...) and it's found in Evil Nine's Cakehole (http://www.youtube.com/watch...). - imabonehead
Thanks imabonehead :) I was being I guess, very lamely sarcastic to highlight that our minds "programming" or its deprogramming comes as a result of the world itself telling us how to. ~ In short, I'd like to thank this quote for telling me how to think, oh shit... kinda back where I started... ~ ~~> Russell's quote, with your 1st link, has much more explanatory relevance - sofarsoShawn
Many years ago I had a self hypnosis tape and "Every facet, every dept of your mind etc etc...." were the opening words. I can't remember the title of the tape and have been trying to find it.

Uh, it tells me that Scoble, among others, could use the recommendations. WTF? Perhaps I have too few subscriptions for this to work. - Fred Yankowski
more good stuff - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Finally a better recommendation - directeur
I'd still love an "e-mail this item" feature, similar to Google Reader. - Jesse Stay
great idea! - Edwin Khodabakchian
Cool! Beats the heck out of #followfriday!! - Larry Hawes
What am I supposed to get when I click the 'recommend friends' link on someone's pop-up? Currently, the popup just goes away and I don't get directed anywhere else. - FFing Enigma
Fred: yah, unfortunately, you can only recommend people who you are subscribed you and who are also subscribed back to you. - Bret Taylor
Mark, I didn't submit a bug report since what is supposed to happen wasn't actually spelled out on the blog post or here; this might be the intended functionality... I hope not, but it's possible. - FFing Enigma
Tina: it is supposed to pop up a dialog. Sorry for the trouble - we will look into it. - Bret Taylor
At first I did not understand this, but now that I am checking it out, it is brilliant and addresses much of what we have complained about. NOW what will we complain about? - Liza + = ?
Just to confirm Bret, the first image in the blog post is what the pop up is supposed to look like, right? Because that's nothing like what the ff.com/recommend page looks like.... - FFing Enigma
I notice that new subscriptions are automatically added to one's home feed. I consider that kind of a bug. - Meryn Stol
Tina: yes, that is correct. The http://friendfeed.com/friends... page is just a list of people that we think could use some friend recommendations since they have few subscriptions. If you click on any of the "Recommend" links on that page, you will see the same, standard "Recommend friends" dialog. - Bret Taylor
User-driven...I like. - Josh Haley
Where would we find recommendations that others suggest to us? - Fred Yankowski
@Bret, who receive the recommandation see also who is the recommender? - Roberto
Fred: You will receive an email as well as a notification on the top of your feed. - Ross Miller
Roberto: yes, they see who recommended - Bret Taylor
Not getting the pop-over when I click 'recommend' on the friendfeed.com/friends/recommend page either... FFox 3.0.12 if it's relevant. - FFing Enigma
Bret, if I recommend friends to people who haven't signed in for a long time, will they get email? A lot of my bored friends are not active FF users I think. (quite logical) - Meryn Stol
and can I see who has accepted my recommendation? - Roberto
Roberto: You won't be notified if they accept/deny as the recommender. - Ross Miller
Ross: Ah, it just appeared on my feed. Cool. (And thanks Meryn) - Fred Yankowski
Meryn: yes, they will get an email with your recommendations - Bret Taylor from email
Bret, I accidently just received an email with previous recommendations. I had already viewed them through the web-interface. But indeed, it's there. Email looks good too, as I expected of course. :) - Meryn Stol
hey Robert Scoble....I have a trade proposal....you send my name to all your friends...i send your name to all of my friends for the rest of my life.... - Bob DeMarco
I would like that deal, too, Scoble. I like this a lot. - Ben Hanten
Bob: I charge $1 per friend. :-) just kidding, but the UI makes it so hard to send you to more than a few people. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Bret: You guys rock! This is so much better than FollowFriday, which I recommended just a while back. Now, I'm waiting for some recommendation emails! :) - Mahendra (SkepticGeek)
If there’s something about friends and family not having their account set up properly, I’d prefer a way to recommend them the streams they forgot to add. For example, I could tell them “You forgot to add your Digg stream and your fourth and eight blog. Here’s the link.” Then he could just click the recommendation and had it set up easily. - Natsuki Seika
Definitely better than #followfriday. - Bernie Goldbach
As I have lots of subscriptions the pop-up window is *really* slow and always has been since the new UI (same thing for amending friends lists). :-( I like the feature though, so I could make a new friends list of my most recommended users and use that each time for each user? - Kol Tregaskes
