The only motivation I possess at the moment is the desire to go home, eat pizza, and drink a good beer.
Define good beer.. micro brew? IPA? - Chris Myles
I define good as a nice hoppy IPA, in particular Firestone Walker Union Jack. Best IPA I've ever had. - Rob Fahrni from email
Nothing beats a great IPA. We had to make our own while we were sailing, Coopers makes a great IPA kit. I'll have to try the Firestone.. I hope it was good! - Chris Myles

Posted via web from scobleizer's posterous - Robert Scoble from Posterous
Hey Roberto, you're getting double posts on Twitter. One from FriendFeed, one fro Posterous. - Rob Fahrni
Yeah, I need to turn off FriendFeed from Posterous. Sorry about that. - Robert Scoble

Groping my LinkedIn network for devs & feeling no shame - what hath become of me? Oh that and going drinking at 2pm - can haz Jameson?
Hey, that's what LinkedIn is for. ;-) - Rob Fahrni

Re: RSS Is Alive And Well -
"Thanks for that Fred. And thanks for the post. You're a good guy. :-)" - Dave Winer
It's a silly notion of many of these 'techjournalists' that Twitter is the be-all-end-all of the web. Okay it's useful for some, but I can't get ALL my news from Twitter. I use Netvibes for the rest... Why can't these "techjournalists" understand that the two technologies can exist next to eachother, and perhaps even supplement eachother? - Marcel de Jong
TCP is dead, as is HTTP. RSS can join the ranks of the dead, driving the internet silently in the background. Dave, I'd take this as a badge of honor. People say it's dead because it's "just another thing used to build out systems." You gotta have it, and you don't have to think about it. That's a great thing, I think. :-) - Rob Fahrni
Thank you Rob. But I still don't like the word. It's ridiculously bad karma. - Dave Winer
Robert Scoble
I'm showing Rackspace Partners these things: Seesmic Desktop; Dopplr; Upcoming; Feedly; Yelp; FriendFeed. What else should I show?
I will also have FriendFeed on the screen, so your answers will be shown to everyone. - Robert Scoble
LazyFeed? Cotweet? TweetDeck? - Akiva - Melissa / (*cough* self-promotion) - Jalada
Posterous - That's So CAJ!
Posterous. - Inside Alaska
Akiva: Cotweet would be cool. I'm more familiar with TweetRiver. Posterous is a good one! - Robert Scoble
Facebook... he he he... don't be silly! - travispuk
Wow, this teaches me to pay more attention to bios: Jalada, I had no idea you were behind Twitterfall. It was used constantly at Gnomedex by everyone. - Akiva
If you're showing seesmic desktop, you should show them seesmic web, as well - jyamasaki
Robert, Rochelle swears by Cotweet. It has an excellent UI and is quite configurable. Very iPhone-like in style. - Akiva
Akiva: Really? That's awesome :-) yeah, I'm the 'lead' developer, there's just two of us, we're CompSci students together at York in the UK. - Jalada
Posterous. TweetDeck. - Jeff Harbert
Jalada, yep. We had it on the main screen between presentations tracking #gnomedex (of course!). Great work! - Akiva
Akiva: Thank you :-) - Jalada
Robert, maybe highlight the coming social media features of Google Reader? - Akiva
Yeah, I'm showing off Google Reader too. - Robert Scoble
The social aspect of Google Reader, Tweetie (Mac and iPhone, whichever is available), - Sweyn Venderbush
Github - Jesse Stay
Stack Overflow - Jesse Stay
linkedin - imran
What about - Rob Fahrni
I like for hosted subversion - Jesse Stay
Screenjelly, neat stuff - Marco
Robert, what are your current Top 6 social web tools? - Jeff Harbert
I've heard big things about Twitter - Johnny
Jeff: they've all been mentioned in this thread! :-) - Robert Scoble
Johnny: that company might go somewhere someday. :-) - Robert Scoble
Yoono for aggregating more than just Twitter and Facebook, GetSatisfaction for customer support, CoTweet for Twitter CRM. - Todd Pringle
StockTwits Desktop. - Dominic Jones
Hey Robert, I have a $100/mo Rackspace Cloud site, but I'm just a small blog and really can't justify spending that a month, so I'm trying to sell "chunks" of my site starting at $9.95/mo to others who are in similarly in my shoes. I'm doing it as perhaps a business opportunity, but also as a way to stay with the service and not go back to a shared managed host. I wonder how I can market this? - Stephen Pickering - petar vucetin
CloudContacts - esp. considering I use Rackspace! - Allen Stern
Uservoice - Steve Lynch from twhirl
+1 for StackOverflow, as well. Most useful forums ever. - Steve Lynch from twhirl
Picnik. - Steve Lynch from twhirl
foursquare? - ann glenn
smallaa - share different things with different facebook friends based on common interests. - Tim Lai
Brightkite ? - Wayne Sutton from iPhone
he asks the stupidest questions and he gets range of response !! what does that tell us ? - Peter Dawson
Robert :Friends Messenger ,,, looking for a US partner ,as we are working on a SKYPE integration and an OUTLOOK solution as well ,we are at Amazon now and you can bring us home :-)) - Johni Fisher ? - Ted Roden
Peter: the stupid questions always get the best answers! :-) - Robert Scoble
Allen: that reminds me, got a crapload of business cards to send you. I love CloudContacts. - Robert Scoble
its not questions or answers, its influence on people ! - imran
Robert: Alex Gomez contacted me few times but we couldnt close a deal maybe now we can move - Johni Fisher
sure robert - send em over - thanks for the love! - Allen Stern ? I hear it is cool but I don;t know how to use it. - mark taylor
If you're going to show CoTweet and Seesmic, you definitely should show TweetDeck and HootSuite. It might also be a good idea to show some of the URL shorteners like - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Posterous - Alan Morris from iPhone
Wordpress - polou/indigo_bow
Hootsuite. Posterous. - Gus
The mighty mighty she is key for pulling it all together - Robert Higgins
The new lady on the block from Google pubsubhub - Robert Higgins
SocialToo - Jesse Stay
Pixelpipe ist gut - Brett Butterfield
Google Voice or Foursquare - 77Agency
I agree - Posterous and LazyFeed... - Robyn Hawk
Posterous with the caveat that it has potential to become much more than it is now. - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
simply tweet and buddyfeed - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
I have to save this entire list. How does anyone keep track of them all? - Kirste Mitchell
social|median - Kirste Mitchell
Dave Winer
"Silly to proclaim the death of RSS while instead using technologies that rely on RSS." Yeah.
"I don't use gasoline anymore. I fly everywhere instead." - Dave Winer
"Electricity is dead. I have toast every morning with my eggs." - Dave Winer
We don't need farms, I get my fruit at the super market. (Actual statement by someone that said we didn't need more water in the Central Valley. It works here.) - Rob Fahrni
don't need electric for toast and eggs ;o) - Rob Sellen :o)
I love the "X is Dead" linkbait tactic. Just need to find the next thing to proclaim dead. How about Free? e.g. "Free is Dead"? or "The Long Tail is Dead"? or "The Black Swan is Dead"? or "The Tipping Point is Dead"? Mmmm...tasty. - Elliott Ng
Who cares if consumers use the technology, it is still a vital link from source to consumer. - Gary Walter (gwalter)
Elliott, your ideas are intriguing to me, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter. - Andrew C (✔) from Android

@drwave Hardest day of the week, leg day!
Amen brother. - Jerry Fahrni
It's the hardest, but also the most gratifying. I POUND my legs, and I see the results. I need to get off this crazy work schedule so I can go back to my workouts. It's been three weeks of crappy, workouts, that following five weeks off for the back injury. Legs are at zero again. Sigh... - Rob Fahrni
Better than what I can say. I don't even squat anymore. How can you do legs with out squatting? It's the KING of all leg exercises. - Jerry Fahrni

The world's biggest Posterous evangelist is coming over for lunch. Will today be the day?
The day for what? - Jason Hansen
Awesome now this should be interesting! - Peter du Toit (S.Africa)
Sorry... lack of theming(/branding) and Disqus support are pretty much a non-starter - Ken Sheppardson
I just started using Posterous myself... It's my iPhone Photo Stream. - Jason Hansen
Thomas: guess. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
What's with this Scoble background, FriendFeed is going myspace? -) - Colin
Matt: bing! - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Colin: You can turn off other people's themes. - Jason Hansen
Jason: getting into Posterous. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Robert: You have an iPhone... why not start off using it like myself? - Jason Hansen
Colin: funny, this is a feature Twitter has had for years. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
It would be great to see themes :) - TechTalkToday
the ease with which you can post from mobile to Posterous is insane - Peter du Toit (S.Africa)
Robert: Yeah I know, you need to go pay a "social media consultant" to make a more attractive single band for the left or something :) - Colin
Also, the PicPosterous app for the iPhone is pretty slick. - Jason Hansen
He's bringing cookies? - Rod Trent
I'd switch over to Posterous in a second if I could just get rid of their logo in the header of my site there, tweak the CSS a bit, and use a third party comment system. - Ken Sheppardson
Will today be the day Robert discovers Weblogging? Enquiring minds want to know. But seriously, it's just another weblogging system, with a different tagline. You can post to your weblog via e-mail from all kinds of different systems. What makes Posterious different? Does it offer something the others don't? You're also very limited by them, at last check, you can't post to your own... more... - Rob Fahrni
Matt: POS. Plain Old Safari. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Will today be the day that Scoble becomes the Posterous prophet? At one time it was / is Friendfeed, but maybe Scoble is ready for a new product to promote. - Ben Hanten
@Kahlil, that's good, didn't know that. Thanks for the correction, that's a very good thing. How about customizing the look, so you can't tell it's a Posterious weblog? Also, can I post to it from my favorite desktop weblog client, MarsEdit? - Rob Fahrni
Posterous is so flexible and how they handle media files is just killer. It can be simple or more complex depending on your needs. Love it. - Gus
I've been playing with Posterous a bit lately since they released the iPhone app. It's limited but will explore further. - Kenley Neufeld
@Kahlil, is it safe to say Posterous is limited to posting via e-mail? That's what it looks like via the FAQ. That's why people are raving about it. It's VERY easy to post to your weblog from any e-mail service/client. That's nice. So what besides that makes it better than Blogger, WordPress, or many of the other established leading weblog publishing systems? That's the question that... more... - Rob Fahrni
Tony: I can't do everything! :-) - Robert Scoble from iPhone
re: "The world's biggest Posterous evangelist is coming over for lunch" - You're having lunch with @lewmoorman? (Just kidding, Lew!) - Robert J Taylor
Posterous is amazing. I don't need an app like Marsedit anymore. I just use Gmail to compose my posts. - Alex Knight
love posterous. just miss some custom design features and analytics - Ouriel Ohayon
PicPosterous lets you share video that's longer than the email limit. That's handy. - Tom Landini
Posterous for a private site is where it really shines. I have both, public and private, and the private one is amazing. Try it. - Dominic Jones
Ended up ditching my personal WP site for posterous & loving it. @Rob the ease of posting and tweaking how things are disbursed is incredible. You can pick and choose per post which other sites you would like updated. The multiple photo upload is sweetomatic and they embed just about anything in a snap. I'm a fan and I thought I would live and die by WP. - suecosby
Posterous is fantastic, Tumblr too but one is mad to give up a self hosted blog in place those services. Respectively of course Steve Rubel. - Benjamin Taylor
I've found that views on my Posterous posts have dropped like a ton of bricks. At first (a few weeks ago) I was getting 400-600 views per post. Last week it was more like 100 per post, now I'm hardly going over 10. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Kahlil, I have a few here:, latest posts have about 30-40 so a little pick up. - Kol Tregaskes
No, not analysed the traffic. - Kol Tregaskes
We are actually crowd-sourcing our blog on Mugasha. Mugasha Aux is hosted on Posterous with custom theme (still in private beta). The cool thing about this blog is that the community and the Artists can post content on the blog. Artists can promote their music and events and fans can post stores about events or other music related things. We are terrible bloggers here at Mugasha so we decided why not ask the community to help us out. Posterous is setup really well to hand this. - Akshay Dodeja
So you can created themes for Posterous? - Kol Tregaskes
Cool! - Kol Tregaskes
Posterous is great - I use it all the time for feeding FF and facebook with pictures - the iPhone "picture album" app is a winner too - can't find anything wrong with posterous myself - I love it - Nicholas Paul Gordon from iPhone
That's definitely cool... but if they're still going to have that white block in the header with the Posterous logo that has, looks like Tumblr will still have them beat in that area. - Ken Sheppardson
@Ken Actually we decided to leave The Posterous bar on top to give them credit :) You can totally style that in any way you want. - Akshay Dodeja
Nice, Akshay. Good to hear. Looking forward to seeing them go live with customization. - Ken Sheppardson
Robert: was today the day? - Ken Power
Ken, Akshay, Kahlil -- we've got a revision to that top bar coming. You can expect as good an experience with Posterous as with Tumblr for full customization. Better, if we do it right. Thanks for all your support. - Garry Tan
I started on posterous thanks to being talked into it ( Hilariously, so far I don't see it as a challenger to tumblr at all. For me Tumblr is about fragments, scrapbooking, and its "genre" posting styles help with this. Posterous for me is an engine to conventionally blog (as opposed to microblog) to multiple sites, and... more... - Paul Greer

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

I'm an addict so I'm here. - Francesco Passannanti
@Robert, in fact they do speak English. But they also do make fun of Friendfeed and everything that's going on there. You can block them or take part in this fun. ;) - Based on real people

I prefer FF over twitter and facebook, but all my friends are on twitter and/or facebook. Maybe facebook will get it right this time now that it has acquired FF. If they simplify it a bit more without removing functionality. Then I would spend a bit more time on FB. Lets hope all goes well with the merger. If not I'm jumping ship and going over to Google Wave. oh wait, I'm going to go with Google Wave regardless! ;-) - Captain Jack

@scobleizer i can speak english and i beg you to remove bann from all russian friendfeeders, because we are all from it-community, working in internet companies and we came with peace, you asked for feedback from friendfeed addicts — we show you how really it is being frf addicts, we change names, we chat, we making things that are not serious. Why so serious? Unlock people, they are not bots, they just playing the game of real addicts and have fun. Common. - ideali
shaun: I started this post to demonstrate that a lot of us are still here and aren't likely to leave. At least not quickly. So, life goes on after FriendFeed gets acquired by Facebook. Point proved. - Robert Scoble

Hector: good morning! I need coffee. - Robert Scoble
@robert yes they (we will) stay here, I think tat the migration process will take time and after reading @Paul Bucheit, I think that what we all are trying to get even if we don't say it explicitly is to preserve a kind of intimacy (beeing a part of the Huge faceBook community) don't mean that FF community will preserve their intimacy, why should a community be a plan one, (let imagine a community as a set of sub-community) that all. - abdellah

@Robert RE "I have enough noise in my life. I don't need to have more" - isn't it a lot of noise having 26K subscriptions and 46K subscribers on your frf account?

@Robert, patience? Who's talking about patience? It's about curiosity, not patience. When something strange and unusual happens around you, you can either try to stop it or try to see what it can develop into. You choose to stop - and it stopped. Well, not stopped - just moved to some other place. And do you really know what it was and what it was about to bring you? - Based on real people

Is there any connection between Twitter being down & Facebook being super buggy this morning? What do you think? Discuss:

OMG, I can't even stay connected to Facebook at all. Been trying to chat with a friend (using Adium) and connect...disconnect...connect...etc. - Kenley Neufeld
I just reset my router twice thinking it was me. - Kenley Neufeld
A feedback loop that keeps knocking both services down? - Paul Jacobson
Helen :) - Susan Beebe
This is teaching us something about the framework of the current Internet traffic patterns. We're watching cascade scale problems from one major Internet program going down. - Melanie Reed
Mashable article: Twitter Down: Twitter Doesn’t Know Why ---> - Susan Beebe
Just checked with my FB peeps, and the weather over here is much better. Was very hard to get posting done over there. - Brenda Young
This is the longest outage twitter's had in a LONG time... something is definitely wrong... ouch - Susan Beebe
Yes, FB is receiving more traffic and twitter says its a DOS attack - cheapsuits
interesting possibility: a massive DoS attack on all SNS properties at the same time! with no SNS people might go at each other tooth and nail. this would make a great Onion report! - MikeAmundsen
I'm with Helen on this one - after Scoble's Great Unfollow, Twitter's database is so full of holes they're having to do a massive reorg... - Andrew Terry

Andrew -LOL - Susan Beebe
Posterous seems to be down, too, for what it's worth. - Eric Johnson
Posterous is working for me (for now) - Susan Beebe
You can read "panic tweets" from Twitterers about Twitter being down: - Gus
@ Andrew - there's a model in Chaos Theory where you take a cube, hollow a hole in the exact centre of each side, then keep repeating the process - end result? A finite cube containing an infinite number of holes :) - Iain Baker
Susan - Posterous is back for me, too. And was a 500 server error, so probably not DoS related. - Eric Johnson
So I guess we ought to help the folks at Twitter out and shut down our Twitter clients? I expect that zillions of API calls aren't helping their situation right now... - Eric Johnson
Facebook, LiveJournal, and Twitter all down, to much of a coincidence to be a coincidence? API calls all the way - courtney benson
Wondering now if that suggestions a massive DDoS attack launched against a bunch of sites, or possibly also infrastructure issues as well? - Susan Beebe
@Iain - Really? That's so cool! - Andrew Terry

We are defending against... more... - Susan Beebe

Of course there is, the two sites are highly interconnected and trouble with one will cause problems with any service which continues to access twitter to update their users profiles - Lillian Banchik
Chris Loft - of course everything takes longer to get to Australia! I'm with amygeek - let's blame it on N. Korea... - Baffled from fftogo
Ohhh... I don't recall Twitter being down for such a long period of time, although I must say I've seen a sudden rise of spam lately. - Bruno Mertins
God, just figured out that we would all have to go back to talking to one another in person or on the phone if this continues. - courtney benson
cnet article, "There has been no indication that any of these various attacks are connected. But it's probably not a coincidence that they all coincide with the annual Defcon hacker convention." (Twitter crippled by denial-of-service attack) -- - Susan Beebe
Baffled I've been trying to post this to you at Twitter -- I knew a hooter / thought - did she have a suitor / or was I too late? /// #haiku #haikuchallenge - Chris Loft
I wonder how much impact (think overhead) those stupid Spam Bots cause for twitter? 24% of all twitter traffic is due to spam bots - augh! - Susan Beebe

Yep, I've been getting all kinds of Facebook "transport errors" while attempting to wall post, comment, etc. - Susan Beebe

Twitter Status Blog - 2nd Update: "Ongoing denial-of-service attack -- We are defending against a denial-of-service attack, and will update status again shortly. Update: the site is back up, but we are continuing to defend against and recover from this attack." - Susan Beebe

No way! Remember Paul Buchheit, one of FriendFeed's founders, coined the term "Do No Evil" when he was at Google. The FF team is really cool, no bad dudes over there! - Susan Beebe
YAY twitter is back up!!! :) - Susan Beebe
@Susan: I know, just kidding by stating a thing which is way too absurd to be true;) - Jemm
LOL - Susan Beebe
FWIW, I always thought Google's catchphrase "do no evil" would have been better when qualifying a statement, like this: "Let the old lady finish crossing the street; don't be evil" - Richard Walker
See GigaOm's VISUAL on the Twitter outage (web traffic data provided by -- - Susan Beebe
Twitter Status Blog UPDATE [12:46pm EST] : "Update (9:46a): As we recover, users will experience some longer load times and slowness. This includes timeouts to API clients. We’re working to get back to 100% as quickly as we can." - Susan Beebe
Update: Now FACEBOOK admits they too were subjected to DDoS attack today too!! --> RT @AdamOstrow: Facebook Problems Also the Result of DDoS Attack - (via - Susan Beebe
Here's a Facebook "Database Write Error" I saw repeatedly last night ~1-3 am ET, before the DDoS attacks this morning. I'm not sure if there weren't precursors to the main DDoS attacks at 6 am today, but Facebook was having weird issues a few hours earlier. - Mitchell Tsai
Facebook kept giving me the ol' "transport error" messages - tons of 'em too! - Susan Beebe
Funny. I could not log into Twitter, Tweetdeck or Facebook for over an hour. Then I had this sudden horror that an aweful event, such as a terrorist attack, would flood both sites with traffic and cause this. I went to CNN- there was the story of Twitters DDoS Attack. - E-Advocate Network
Pretty scary stuff, huh? I wonder who would be behind all this. Hope they catch 'em and lock 'em up! - Susan Beebe
Susan, I also got lots of AJAX transport errors & long delays at Facebook, but those happena ll the time. This was the first time I've seen the "database write error". - Mitchell Tsai
I blame North Korea - Jim Goldstein from iPhone
To deal with future network problems, we need an emergency backup mechanism to access twitter: carrier pigeons. - DGentry
Hope they catch them too Susan. I sure was releived to find it was a cyber attack causing the flood instead of people reporting on a real life attack though! I do worry about real time events right now that are lagging coverage due to this: #iranelection. - E-Advocate Network
Yay!! Google, facebook and twitter are investigating the DDoS attacks today! See Mashable's post about it here: - Susan Beebe
Seriously, even Friendfeend, via Buddyfeed client, was unavailable a few times. I'll venture a guess the DoS attack targetted a whole heap of social media at the one time. - George Hall (Australia)
That bird pic at the top of the thread is intriguing. Is it public domain? - George Hall (Australia)
Hardly use Facebook. When I update facebook it's when I do a mass update through, other than that I hardly use it. - Patrick
Where did you get the dead bluebird icon? I love it. - shelisrael1
I think this is a definite competitor for the Fail Whale! - Justin Davey
Are they both routed through the same Bay Area server network? Just askin'. Maybe there's a rapid growth of Twitter-to-FB feeds that's screwing up everything? I also like the dead bluebird & upside down FB graphics! - Cathryn Hrudicka
I had much trouble w/ FB this morning as well. It got better after the rain stopped. A day w/o SM is a day without sunshine. - shelisrael1
AP reports that a pro-Abkhazia activist blogger, who uses the account name "Cyxymu," (the name of a town in the Republic of Georgia) is related to the attacks on SNS. Whether the pro-side (Georgia) or con-side (Russia) coordinated the attacks is unknown. "There's very little way of distinguishing which side was taking this action, because either side could hypothetically benefit from... more... - Mitchell Tsai
lots Blogger as well and Livejournal. It was a concentrated attack. - Rob Cairns

Mitchell - wow, thank you for the awesome insights into the DDoS attack story. I truly appreciate the info and citations you kindly provided here. Good stuff, as always!! - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
Cathryn - I flipped the facebook logo upside down - glad you like it! - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
Thanks for the photo credit details, Susan. - George Hall (Australia)
I think the dead twitter bird is cute! - Jannifer @wordsforliving
yes, I belive there is close connection. - eva
Iran - heretic_twit
wondering what the final verdict will be on the DDoS attack and how we can prevent them in the future .... hmmm - Susan Beebe
Down but not own................. - Kevin J Hatton
seems like whatever Google did mitigated the attack on their end, it'd be interesting to see what data google could provide to twitter and facebook on how to protect from ddos attacks in the future - Ⓐ ☠ slayerboy ☠ Ⓐ from IM
Mike - agreed!! Google's insights would be really important for future hardening of systems to defend DDoS attacks - Susan Beebe

Developing OPML Editor Tools by Andy Sylvester.
Folks don't give Frontier it's due respect. It is quite powerful, and with Dave driving it, it's VERY powerful. He's constantly adding new functionality to his toolset without changing Frontiers Engine. Yes, the UI is very minimal, but I think that's half the point. Once you master UserTalk, you can do quite a lot with it. I was just thinking about grabbing the OPML editor last night. I used Radio for a while a few years back, just never got into the scripting engine. - Rob Fahrni
Thanks Rob. I think you're right about that -- there are so many things in the integration betw the editor and the object database and the scripting and the Internet -- I don't think anyone else has gotten there because it has to be done by a very small team with a drive toward the purpose over years and years. It's really hard to sustain that kind of momentum, but we did, for quite some time with a great team of people. I'm doing a project in there right now. :-) - Dave Winer

Pen and paper versus technology. -
This is my favorite article to date Jay. - Rob Fahrni

"I predict a return to blogging as people discover the power of being able to finish a thought"
I really like this statement - but will people return to blogging as we've known it? - Tony
Are you perhaps over estimating the allure of thinking? - Todd Hoff
Micro-blogging is good for idealets and infotainment, but it really is turning the web into a mindless medium like TV. Of course, there will always be the equivalent of PBS trying valiantly to raise the bar somewhat. Blogs will always have the possibility of transmitting real knowledge. - Paul W. Homer
The interesting thing for me is I think we have lost the definition of what a blog is. Everybody jumped up and down about what Steve Rubel did, but really I see his change as a shift of platform. If he posted that same content on wordpress, nobody would have said a word. Just because he did it on posterous and called it a lifestream, people took issue with it. So, what is our definition then? - Robert
Dave - I read through the link you sent, thanks for the information. So, in what ways do you think posterous goes against this definition? - Robert from email
I think Steve still has a weblog, he's just submitting posts to it in a "different" way. Like Dave's link says a weblog is "... a hierarchy of text, images, media objects and data, arranged chronologically, that can be viewed in an HTML browser." Pretty much sums it up, I think. Steve's post is going to generate attention, and debate, but in the end it's a weblog. - Rob Fahrni
Robert, I know you're asking Dave a question, but I don't think the Posterious way goes against the definition. If I'm not mistaken Radio could post via e-mail, and I know Blogger supports this feature. Maybe I need to dig into Posterious a bit more but isn't that what it does? - Rob Fahrni
Rob - That is my point. This in my mind is one of the major problems with looking for a "new name" for these social products. We see it as something different because it is called something different. Posterous, from what I can see so far, allows for the writer to interact with their "weblog" in a different way, just as you said... - Robert from email
Huh? - Dave Winer
Dave - I think your "huh?" was towards me... We call Posterous a "life stream", I say it is a blog, that we have given a different name to. That is what I am saying.Rob - I agree with you 100%, and that is my point exactly. I keep reading these post about blogging being dead, or blogging being alive... but those that say they are not "blogging" are still "blogging" Maybe I am not making sense, but I hope I am... - Robert from email
Robert - Precisely! I think Posterious is trying to find a why to differentiate their product, so they've coined a new phrase. It's still a weblog, how the data arrives may be different, but it's just a weblog all the same. When I read Steve's story last night, from his new site, I thought I was going to find a link on it to something "new and innovative", then I realized I was AT the actualy site, his "life stream." - Rob Fahrni
Rob - YES... That is what I am saying... Same with Tumblr in my view, it is a weblog... Blogging is not dead at all in my view... - Robert from email
Robert - Right on! - Rob Fahrni
Blogology is a still too young science, and definitio usually comes when plays are over. What I feel sad for is the lack of opportunity future literature and social behaviour experts will suffer not using post's content ( and graphics ) as sources for studying today's world zeitgeist. Borges prophecy is at work, few understands - too many doesn't even know what they're writing about: a... more... - valerio fiandra from iPhone
Robert, the photo sharing site you've used recently is structurally a blog too. It differs from normal blog software mainly in that the chronology is by date of occurrence, not date of posting. - Bruce Lewis from fftogo
It's funny that this sentence and a few lines from Anthony Trollope's autobiography should have crossed paths in my consciousness on the same day, since it's almost the same idea, thrown back two temporal orders of magnitude. Trollope tells of a correspondent, a vicar, who had enjoyed his clerical novels but was upset by Lady Glencors'a contemplation of adultery in the Pallisers series.... more... - Amyloo
Bruce - Very true! I'm glad that you are not working hard to call it something different. I'm loving it so far, even though I have not had a lot of time to put a bunch of pics up... - Robert from email
This is silly. Blogging isn't defined by the tool, it's defined by who's doing it. Read the piece I pointed to. I don't mean click on the link and hit the Back buttton, click the link and READ. - Dave Winer
Agreed, Dave. Heck, we blogged back in the day via FTP uploads; that's what moved you towards developing "Edit This Page", in fact (IIRC). - Ken Kennedy
Dave - I did read through it, and I agree that a blog is NOT defined by a tool, I think that is what we have been saying. I do not see where we are at odds on our viewpoints, please expound. - Robert from email
This subject keeps coming back - blogging will never die. - Jesse Stay
Before Web 1.0 we listened, conversed, collaborated and then we wrote. Writing was the synthesis of all the thinking that occurred in the first steps. In the new medium, the thinking process is the streams, both personal and community. Blogging is the synthesis of this new kind of community thought process. - Joolio
Dave - haha! - that is awesome :D - Susan Beebe
I think a large percentage of bloggers were really microbloggers, they just didn't have the correct apps to do that. The people that actually have something to say will keep blogging and those that just like to say something small or share something interesting will continue microblogging, or lifestreaming, or whatever variant you want to name it. Blogging is akin to publishing articles... more... - xero
This was known since the times of IRC: you can only have idle chatter or quick focused questions at that speed. - Michele Costabile
Michele, if that premise is true, then kids only absorb important life-long lessons from their parent(s) when they're sat down for a full length lecture. No? :) - Micah
The best food for thought always come in easily digestible chunks, however, sometimes you need to digest some larger/harder stuff to give you the ability to digest that chunk. - xero
Xero - That is an interesting thought... - Robert from email
Agreed, well said, Xero. - Micah
I thought completing a thought was the beauty of FriendFeed. - Alan Eggleston
Just FYI, when I started Scripting News in 1997, it was entirely "microblogging" -- look in the archive. - Dave Winer
This isn't a fight. I love all this stuff. I was just saying what I think. - Dave Winer
Question: Of those of you out there who use posterous, do you use it as a replacement of your blog, a mirror of your blog or something different? - Curt Mercadante
One of the things I like about blogging is the ability to not finish a thought, not to try so hard to say all I have to say or say come to any definite conclusion in a single post. The unfinished thought is what encourages conversation. Let someone else add to your thought. Let others challenge your incomplete premise. I don't know everything, why pretend I do? My thoughts are never finished. - Jack&Cleo
Just because you can finish a thought, doesn't mean people will read it. - Will Higgins™
Tell me about it. That happened earlier in this very thread. But at least you ca read it yourself. - Dave Winer
Just as your diary became your journal and then your log, your log has become your stream. The web has become your life..... AND SO IT WAS, that in the year naught-nine, the web-log was renamed to life-stream, dissected, and it's pieces scattered about the hundreds of "cloud" services, from which it could fall as raindrops of thought, pinging here and there in an attempt to spread ideas to where they were needed the most. - Joel Bennett
Here's a picture, even easier than 140 chars. - Dave Winer
Love the idea! - Sampad Swain
Where's yours? - Dave Winer
Me too. :-) - Dave Winer
What do you mean, I have always been able to finish a ... ooh a nice shiny object... - Marcel de Jong
Isn't it ironic that this post contained a clear and concise thesis, in under 140 characters? - Mike Chelen
Good point Mike... - Mark Harai
There's NOTHING wrong with brevity. There is a time and a place for discussion and lengthy discourse. - Will Higgins™
Matthew DeVries: that covers definitions 1 and 2, yet the 3rd is an "incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result," where in this case the expected result was to explain how new platforms prevent thoughts from being finished, and the actual result was to the contrary :D - Mike Chelen
aren't we all copying from the same online dictionary? - Mike Chelen

One could build a Twitter around blog posts. We came pretty close a few years ago. Just sayin.
Dave, I haven't dug into it, but BuddyPress may do what you're talking about. - Rob Fahrni

So, what service did you use for your business cards? Please comment over on FriendFeed, thanks!
I bought a packet of Avery card stock and then their online service ( to design. They have as good an assortment of templates so 1 should fit, as long as you have a color printer. - Bill L - a box for free (plus shipping) if you use one of their designs and don't mind their logo on the back. - Steven Vore
Hey guys, thanks for the tips, I really appreciate it. I don't mind paying for them, I want them to look good, I need to get a nice logo together first. :-) - Rob Fahrni
vistaprint are also spam-inducing in my experience - Bill L
Robert Scoble
The last time people reacted this way to a famous music star dying was the day Elvis died. I was in elementary school and still remember my neighbors playing his music. Michael meant more to my life than Elvis.
Hits close to home. Really close. - Mona Nomura
Especially during the Thriller days. If you weren't there, you don't understand how crazy everyone was over MJ. - Eric - Final Countdown
Somehow I'm completely without emotion regarding MJ's death. No idea why. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Same here Mona - I don't remember feeling this way about any celebrity's death before. - Jesse Stay
Robert, what about John Lennon's death? That was also a huge jolt at the time. - John E. Bredehoft from fftogo
I'm sure there are watershed moments for every generation. Elvis passing was more a Baby Boomers thing (IMO) while MJ is probably more a GenX thing. No doubt these things will impact everyone differently. Still, it's odd waking up to such news this morning. - Threepwood
Is it really that big of a deal? The guy was a freak and a child molester. Sure he was huge in the Thriller days, but his star is not only not as bright, but a little tarnished as well. - MarkCarras
For me and my crew, the day Jerry Garcia died was met with a similar reaction. For me it was much more profound. - nicholas einstein
John: yes. I think Elvis was bigger though. - Robert Scoble
I liked his Thriller album and videos, but after that he seemed to go downhill. And the child molestation thing tainted how I felt about it. - RobinDotNet
I feel sad, I love Michael's music:(((( - K.D.
50 is young. But Michael started his professional career at an extremely young age, so he's a true flash. - Louis Gray
I like his music too, but I don't like his actions. - Andy
I agree completely with Mona and Jesse, this is the first time that I feel like someone really close died, even though I never got a chance to meet him. - Diego Espinoza V.
@MarkCarras ...and Elvis died on his toilet or something. So close to his passing most people are choosing to remember the GOOD things he did in his life. - Bryan Zirkel
I wonder if people will try to whitewash over his history as a child molester and just focus on his fame? - MarkCarras
I've never understood the way people worshipped him even now, years after he has done anything successful. - RobinDotNet
Very strange day, sad. MJ was incredibly talented... a true star. - Susan Beebe
it has been discussed 4 a few hrs already. RIP King of Pop - polou/indigo_bow
Same age here, and that was a strange weekend. There's nowhere near the social influence in this case. No movies to pay over and over all weekend. - Jason Nunnelley
What about his kids? - Andy
What about when John Lennon died? Was that bigger than MJ's death? - Sam Houston
I remember all too well when Elvis died, I was 9 years old, standing on Paige street in Lindsay, California, playing with my friends. Weird, how you remember things like that? - Rob Fahrni
No disrespect to MJ but I think the same reaction would be happing right now if it was Madonna. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I wonder if Madonna would get more coverage, actually... I preferred her as an artist. - Tamar Weinberg
I'm too young to really have been a part of the big days of MJ, but I still LOVED his music. I hope he's remembered fondly. lots of stuff in the media about him that's not good. I choose to ignore a lot of it - Chris Brakebill
Can't believe it really happened. Bigger for me than elvis, lennon, cobain or even diana. I hope people remember him for the brilliant musician that he was and not his other antics. - Raj Narayan
I was a toddler when Lennon RIPped - polou/indigo_bow
Folks, the real reason we react with such a deep personal response when a celeb like this dies is that it smacks us in the face with our own mortality. We identify ourselves a little with these celebs, whether we like, approve or even appreciate them as artists. I've been listening to Michael Jackson music since he was a teenager. I don't like seeing artists that were popular when I was a teen dying because it reminds me my time/era is fading just like that of my parents. - Jason Nunnelley
@MarkCarras what happened to the presumption of innocence? He was never tried on the first case due to lack of evidence, and acquitted on all counts on the second one - Juan Tarrío
@Helen - I remember the Diana situation too, and all the hype around it. - Tyson Key
Wow, what a bold statement. Jason, do you know me? Do you know the reason why this hits so close to home for me? What if I told you the very first cassette tape given to me by my dead mom was Michael Jackson's Thriller? Think twice before yapping like a know it all. - Mona Nomura
i think of john lennon & frank sinatra in comparison to how big a legend michael was. the difference is, i grew up listening to michael jackson. sad day. - Jim Halligan @jim
Mona, I'm not sure how your statement is incongruous with my own. Sounds like you agree. - Jason Nunnelley
Juan Tarrio -- I would have felt that way too, if according to papers on the smokinggun from the first child molestation trial (the one he settled out of court) didn't reveal that the kid knew personal specific details about MJ's personal parts. Ick. I can't believe I just typed that. - RobinDotNet
For me it was the loss of Peter Sellers and John Lennon. I think because they had so much more to give us. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My personal idol of the early 90s who never had a real private life now gets what he deserves - liberty for the rest of his...being - Naii
RIP MJ - Kashif Khan
Elvis? Not John Lennon? - Carol Levesque
His music was the soundtrack to a large part of my life. What a difficult life. RIP. - Marlin Forbes
John Lennons death was under different circumstances, he was murdered and also coming back with a record from what I heard reported on Sky. I was too young for John Lennon so for me the closest comparison is with Princess Diana. RIP - Joe Dawson
Never an Elvis fan, but I was a huge Beatle fan, so John Lennon's death was a shock to me. I do enjoy Michael Jackson's music.....unfortunately I found the man questionable at best, but also feel sad for him dying at such an early age. At least he no longer has to suffer whatever personal demons drove him. - Bonnie Foster
People were pretty hung up when Lennon passed. Same with when Aaliyah and Lisa Lefteye Lopez passed away. I sincerely disagree with the sentiment that the last time there was a unified mourning of a musician was Elvis. - Mattie Kenny from fftogo
Aaliyah dying seemed to have a pretty big impact, even though it was soon overshadowed by 9/11. I remember seeing a lot of baby girls born after 2001 named Aaliyah. - Victor Ganata
Mona, Jessie... Hits close to home with me too. And it also hits me like when Princess Diana died. - Jannifer @wordsforliving
Michael Jackson? I can understand the Beatles, Stones, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Dylan, the Grateful Dead and dozens of others. But the King of Pap? - George F. Snell III
@George - CNN pointed out that Thriller is the best selling album in history at 50 million. Love him or hate him that's a big impact. - Daniel J. Pritchett
No denying he was bigger than life - what a strange world he lived in - seems like he got lost somewhere along the way... - Mark Harai
I see several people on this thread wondering why "GenX" is so impacted by MJ's passing, here is a reason why ( He was hands down the best performer, crowd-puller, the 80s has known. When it comes to celebrities, I like to view the artist separate from the person, and as an artist, he was up there with the very best. - Shivanand Velmurugan
i was having an early dinner at a restaurant when i saw this on the local news....couldnt believe it.....truly sad and socking - goutham
thought the same thing Robert. I was at the roller-rink when Elvis died. I will probably always remember where I was when MJ died - the gym. - BEX
My favorite reaction from this news: "Don't worry, he's still alive on YouTube" - my four-year old nephew from Perth, Australia about Michael Jackson RIP. - Iggy Pintado
I remember that reaction too and some don't seem to understand that Michael was an international superstar, who brings back incredible memories of our childhood. At 45 I literally grew up with his music and am shaken by his death. - Karen Swim
Like Cristo I remember the day Lennon died. Walked into the student coffee shop on campus and it was like a morgue. Yet, I grew up with Michael. I remember sock hops at lunch time. My first slow dance was with a boy to the Jackson 5 song, I'll Be There. Michael's death makes me face my own mortality. Michael's death is the end of an era. - Arleen Boyd
I was stuck on the Test Track ride at Epcot when I heard the Michael Jackson news. - Mike Reynolds
There's no doubt about Jackson's talent and if it hadn't been for his (for lack of a better word) eccentricities in the last several decades in my opinion there would be an entirely different bent to the epitaphs today. I kept thinking over the years, if he could just remain.. well.....normal...... but, would normal have produced Thriller? Billie Jean? The glove? Moonwalking? The... more... - Molly
As a musician, Elvis meant more to my life. But Michael was.. simply Great. RIP. - Thierry R. Andriamirado
RIP MJ and RIP Elvis anyway. :)) - Oguz Serdar
Today is the day music video died. - Tyler Hurst
Tyler: MTV did that a long time ago. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
@Daniel Oh, I don't doubt his impact on pop music - although I think his impact is more on packaging, marketing and style rather than in the music. I just don't understand the blind devotion of his fans. - George F. Snell III
Of course there are 1000s of people who meant more to our lives. The reason we feel a sense of loss when celebrities like MJ pass is because his songs bring back certain memories from our lives. Brings back memories of my childhood. Less about MJ and more about his music and the memories. - Curt Mercadante
Andy: Are you okay? You don't like his actions...did you ever see the man dance? - Garin Kilpatrick
There are some people you're just glad that they are gone, not because you dislike them, but exactly because you _do_ like them. The guy was pushed into the showbiz by his dad, had no childhood, had no privacy, and the only people he cared about (i.e. children that lived crappy lives) were used against him to the demise of his career. MJ is far better away from this place we call Earth. - Rodrigo Jaroszewski
I was a 13 year old on the family trip driving trip that summer that started in connecticut, went through florida, across to arizona and then back across the center of the country. We woke up in Oklahoma city flipped on the TV and got the announcement that Elvis had died. Our next stop was supposed to be Memphis... - Armen Chakmakjian
Don't forget Kurt Cobain. I actually cried when he died. I won't cry for Michael Jackson. :-/ - Dane Deasy

Robert Scoble
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
Dave Winer
Does my iPhone record audio? I want to put it on the table, interview someone, hit Stop, and have an MP3 I can upload.
3.0 OS does. - Mike Nayyar
To quote Apple, "There's an App for that" - Kreg Steppe
see the part about Voice Memos, curious what audio format it records in though - LonelyBob
If you don't have the 3.0 OS yet, you can get several free and paid apps that do the same thing. I wouldn't buy one tho, cause the 3.0 app is very nice and even allows you to trim the audio file on the phone. - Donald Forth
More on Voice Memos in 3.0, - Rob Fahrni

What about the Tumblr folks? - Rob Fahrni
Tumblr would be cool... FogCreek is cool too!! - nickgs
Yes, 65amp is a flash-based mashup application that let everyone mashup their contents. The page is fully customizable, with drag-drop features, rotating, resizing stuffs and changing the styles. The first time you load will take a little while, but subsequent loads will be fast. - Alekkus
How long are you in New York for? I'll be there Friday night, it's be awesome to grab a drink with Scoble! Also, check out Connected Ventures, the people behind Vimeo and College Humor. Ask them about their TOS. - Mike Nayyar
Yes Preyas Consulting - William Lopez

UpNext is in NYC. We'd be happy to meet with you! We make very fast, smooth 3d interactive maps of cities. NYC is our first city. Here is a vid of our iPhone product: -
Robert - we (AdaptiveBlue) are in New York and would love to have you to our office to demo you the new version of Glue (you liked Jeremiah O's review of it yesterday :) - Fraser
I second Fraser's suggestion of visiting AdaptiveBlue to see Glue. It has come a long way since we first showed it to you (back when it was called BlueOrganizer). - Andy Roth
Hey Robert, I posted your question on the Gildertech board and George Gilder responded "My two favorite New York companies are Gerson Lehrman (the private Google of consultants rather than URLs) and Boliven, a spinoff that makes finding, creating, and comparing patents and intellectual property simple and lawyer free." - George Gilder - Stephen Pickering
Oh, Robert, one member of the board, who is a funny guy, said humorously, "Your first question to him is, why would you leave Half Moon bay to go to NYC?........................flop" hehehehehe. I'm not sure what he meant. Just trying to be funny I guess. - Stephen Pickering
Yes! You should meet with Triton media, they are in NY next week too. They are a one-stop shop for radio stations that offers tools to help them build their digital engagement and drive revenues. Mobile platforms, local search, etc. - Maya Benyehuda
you should catch up with Clare Hart - daniela barbosa

June 1st, 1949: Newsweek offers Microfilm copies to subscribers of the $15/year magazine. 2009: What's Microfilm? (2010: what's a magazine?)
Nice comparison Mr. Vore. :-) - Rob Fahrni
Dave Winer
True or false: Without RSS, FriendFeed would be a web-based user interface for Twitter.
Friendfeed is better than twitter, though friendfeed can't import twitter in real-time can it? - Charbax
False, it can and does work better than twitter on its own - Christian Burns
Christian, not how it works, where it gets content from. - Dave Winer
friendfeed is a client for more than twitter... does it use rss to grab it's content for all of the 57 services? - Chris Heath
Almost true... but the comments and like feature make it better and different. - Benoit Cazenave
And Benoit, what would you be commenting about? Twitter and RSS. So much for Steve Gillmor's grand goodbye to the Beatles. I think he should try to talk the FF guys into the idea that RSS is dead and see how far he gets with that. And convince some FriendFeed users too while you're at it. Just give up your RSS for one week, and let's see what FF looks like. Heh. Twitter with comments. - Dave Winer
Would it? It's a great aggregator! I don't think you need to defend RSS Dave. People make weird comments about technologies being dead all the time, mainly because they don't understand how that technology is being used. - Rob Fahrni
When I post a video on youtube, does FF use RSS to fetch the data from youtube to FF as an example? - David Lloyd
Mark, I don't know. Seems pretty likely to me. :-) - Dave Winer
I think the real point is that without RSS (aka recently-updated-data-interop standard) FriendFeed wouldn't exist at all. The fact that they have a custom firehose for Twitter or "might" use a custom API call for Youtube is sort of besides the point. They are the EXCEPTION, not the RULE. - Carter ♥ JS
How come it all happens so fast tho Dave? You know that post you made hours ago about Tech Heroes? It just made it into my google reader. I read it on Friendfeed, liked it, commented on it, and retweeted it on twitter minutes after you posted it. But still its taken hours to get on my google feed. - David Lloyd
Without RSS, maybe people writing articles will just post links to their articles manually, and maybe have a conversation about it after submitting it in like 10 minutes, it would feel a lot less automatic and more human for me..."but that's just the rant of a teenage Egyptian kid, don't mind me ;) " "oh FF is much better than Twitter when it comes to discussions too, try having a convo. on Twitter, it will end in 5 - 10 tweets max " - Ahmed
No, we'd still have Atom, comments, Likes, and the API - Ken Sheppardson
...and we'd probably just have to all move to a webhook-based push system of some sort, so we wouldn't have to wait around for polling. - Ken Sheppardson
so pretty much Friendfeed FTW even without RSS ;) - Ahmed
I may be wrong, but Dave is making the point that RSS is important (not dead). He is not making a statement about Twitter vs. FriendFeed. I'm going to assume that for a significant percentage of the services involved, FF grabs that content via RSS. That being the case, one would have to answer True. - Bill
I'm making the point that people who say FF is great and RSS is dead have their heads up their ass. - Dave Winer
:-) - Dave Winer
@Dave exactly, next time I'll say it that way :) - Bill
Check out the green arrows in this screen shot. - Dave Winer
friendfeed is a forum, built on twitter :) - Allen Stern
I'm starting to make Twitter an option. There's a wealth of information from other sources like Google reader, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, Facebook, etc. The stuff coming from Twitter is becoming redundant these dayss. (ie. useless) - Rudy Amid
Uhhh you mean a wealth of information coming from RSS, right? :-) - Dave Winer
Allen: and YouTube and wordpress and Upcoming and Flickr... - Robert Scoble
Allen ... all of which arrive via RSS, if I remember right. There's only a few services using SUP or XMPP (which is how Twitter arrives here). Dave: when pundits say something is "dead" they almost always are wrong. Remember, Gillmor said Office was "dead" four years ago. How many billions in profit has that made since? Yeah, really dead. - Robert Scoble
i don't want to see anything die - all the apps need to live! - Allen Stern
most times the use of "dead" is just linkbait :) - Allen Stern
btw robert - i know upcoming is popular out west, over here i never hear anyone mention upcoming or link to it - Allen Stern
I've been defending RSS more lately than normal but glad that Dave agrees. I have to laugh when people say that X is dead but Y is the greatest thing. Very quickly that person makes Y their next X. Dare I say that this usually happens in Flocks as people want to stay cool. As I just said to Kevin Rose, RSS readers just need smart AI that can learn someone's SPAM/HAM to better sort and filter to the individual. I can argue that FriendFeed has the same challenges ahead. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I was reminded of the story of Lazarus of Bethany when I read that RSS was dead. - Jim Posner
True, for Twitter and every other API FriendFeed supports. - Ben Simanek
That's pretty much true. The whole RSS importing thing (and the picture upload) makes it really practical, but i couldn't imagine how much time would it take to build up a different FF personality than your Twitter-self. - Ymag
True - Chris Nixon
Wrong-headed question designed to provoke debate. (I am happy to join in - debate is good.) Twitter/friendfeed, apples/oranges, false dichotomy. They do different things and if RSS didn't exist another way would be found to satisfy what is a clear need. What is really interesting in the tech world unlike the industrial world we don't know we need things until we have it. But that's another discussion. - tom murphy
Dave: the most valuable data I get from Friendfeed is the comments about things posted. I feel like about 25% of what I read on Friendfeed is an item imported via RSS, so I say RSS is far from dead. :) - Christian Burns
On another note, 100% of the audio I consume everyday is delivered via RSS, long live podcasting and time shifting! - Christian Burns
Steven Vore

The BBC calls the "easiest way to keep up" with Twitter.
Funny, that's a perfect summary of my reasons for leaving Twitter... - Jan Ole Peek

Good for you Dave. You're off to a pretty good start. :-) - Rob Fahrni
Dave Winer
"I got put on Twitter's official suggested users list last night. I asked them to take me off it today and they did."
i wonder why they don't ask people before they put them on the list? maybe they just assume that everyone wants to be on the list - Chris Heath
I will do the same, if I get put on the Twitter list. - Robert Scoble
I think I asked the last time there was a similar conversation - so please excuse the question if it was already asked - but why would you want to be removed? Am I missing something? Since I don't really use Twitter maybe there is something I do not understand. - LPH™ and his dog P™
LPH: I will refuse to be on this list for three reasons: 1. it's not a meritocracy. That means that my inclusion on it will raise questions about whether I did something behind the scenes to get on the list. 2. It is a gift from a company I would like to cover journalistically in the future. If I got the "gift" of being on the list I could no longer do that and keep my own integrity. 3. Being on the list gets you huge amounts of unenaged followers. I really am not in this game just for numbers. - Robert Scoble're a man of principle, Dave Winer. - .LAG liked that
LPH: Go to TechCrunch's followers. Look at the engagement level. Most of his followers don't even put a picture on their avatars. Now go to mine and compare. The engagement level is HUGELY different. I'm paid to get an engaged audience, not an audience of bots or an audience of people who don't participate in the Internet. - Robert Scoble
LPH: TechCrunch's followers: My followers: -- what differences do you notice? Look for signs of engagement. What are those? 1. Have the members put a photo on the avatar? 2. Have the members actually done a tweet or two? 3. Have the members actually followed anyone on their own (organic following?) - Robert Scoble
Robert - now that makes sense. I just don't use Twitter enough and am used to FF engagement. Guess I'm spoiled ! - LPH™ and his dog P™
LPH: now do you see the problem Twitter is facing here? -- lots of hype, not enough engagement. It's engagement that advertisers will pay for, not the hype. - Robert Scoble
Or, visit this article about non engagement: - Robert Scoble
Hint: this list is actually making things worse for Twitter's returns and engagement. Here's why: 1. If you get onto Twitter because of a celebrity, that's great, but I've found people get very fickle about celebrities. Go to @oprah, for instance. Is there anything really that interesting there to read day after day after day? I don't see it. But what if your best friend is on Twitter? Yes, I find following my close friends on Twitter day after day IS interesting and DOES get me back to the service. - Robert Scoble
2. Twitter seems to only endorse "celebrities" on its recommended follower list. Well, that tells normal users that they don't matter to the system as much as celebrities. So they feel less engaged/empowered. Compare this to Facebook where celebrities only can have 5,000 friends. Now everyone is on the same level and the system "feels" more intimate and engaging because of that. - Robert Scoble
Great point Robert, and that's another reason why sites like Facebook (and in the past MySpace, Friendster, etc) are 'sticky' ... people you actually know are there. Most people will be more engaged with people they actually know - i for one don't engage with celebs on twitter because i know they're not going to engage with me - Chris Heath
bet that if twitter had a "best-of-the-day" feed like, no celebrity will on it. twitter is becoming less conversational. pity :( - Shivanand Velmurugan
Chris: right! Plus, this list really penalizes the real users of the service (this is why Allen Stern's points about friendfeed's list being bad are starting to win me over). Those who put the most time into the service should be rewarded by that service. I've been on Twitter 890 days. The fact that someone else is on the recommended list that's only been on for 15 days really pisses me off and makes me more likely to go elsewhere. - Robert Scoble
Shivanand: right, and it would be a lot better for engagement to have something like which recommends people based on your content interests. If I want to hook into people who are into quilting, why would such a system recommend Mike Arrington to me? - Robert Scoble
i'm texting scoble from my iphone and it's mangling every goddam word - Dave Winer
The other thing about 'recommended' is For What? I might like Robert, but not if I'm looking for hollywood dish. same w/ jay, obviously. - reed price
Dave: the iPhone keyboard does that. (I'm on the phone with him now). - Robert Scoble
I've never found the suggested users list to be useful, on Twitter or FriendFeed. Frankly, I don't care if you're "just some guy/girl" or if you're God...if you don't say anything that interests me or teaches me something new, I'm not going to look for what you have to say. If you put all the numbers aside and make connections on a one-to-one basis, even though it's accessible one-to-many, that's worth finding. - Sally - Skyrimmin' It
The celebrity suggested user lists completely miss the point of Twitter, implying it's a broadcast system - which is a minority use case. Services like Mr Tweet are far more apposite. Even random selections might get you started better! - Tom de Grunwald
A friend of mine joined Twitter and had list of "friends" and she didn't know who they were. It's like moving to a new address and getting a bunch of junk the first time you open the mail box. - Tom Newman
Tom, they're not really "friends", you're following a person, they may be friends, they may not. I know, picky, picky, picky. - Rob Fahrni
Reed, i totally agree... suggested lists are a nice thing to have, but only when you know why the suggestion is being made. - Chris Heath
Maybe a better model for a suggested list would be to look at more than number of subscriptions/follows - look at how many posts/comments - on FF they could also look at how many services or what services - if i post a lot from a service then the suggested list should maybe show me more people from that service ... one thing i will agree is that a suggested list is a hard thing to do because you can't please everyone with your suggestions ... just look where we are now... - Chris Heath
Even though I respect your reasons, I still can't believe you did it. It's such a huge opportunity. Yes but I do see what Scoble is saying. it would be impossible to criticize them. - Stephen Pickering
Oh my bad, It was Jay Rosen. I thought it was Dave Winer. Oh well, same difference. I can totally understand him. He's a journalist. What would be interesting to see though is if he remained on the list but remained totally objective and criticized them when it was appropriate and see if they then took him off. - Stephen Pickering
NICE: @anonymoustom: "celebrity suggested user lists miss the point of Twitter, implies broadcast system, a minority use case" - .LAG liked that
Dave, why do you think they put you on the list? - Thomas Hawk
Thomas: Dave wasn't put on the list, Jay Rosen was. I bet he was put on the list because he's one of the best Twitterers around and because he doesn't do anything "negative" in their eyes, like talk about friendfeed or overload users with too many tweets. - Robert Scoble
Don't forget the fact that there will be no way your followers can all DM you if you're on that list. - Jesse Stay
Jesse: that's a good point and since I care more about having engaged followers than just a broadcast mechanism, that matters to me too. - Robert Scoble
When a 'cat who tweets' makes the list, while many worthwhile charitable/educational organizations are ignored, something doesn't smell right. And it isn't just @sockington's litter box. - Sharon McPherson
How many more requests did you get while 'recommended' versus say a normal day? - Andrew Leyden
ah got it. It was Jay not Dave. - Thomas Hawk
Probably not the same league as Twitter, but shows you (Dave) and Scobleizer on their front page sometimes. - Hiro Asari
Jay's decision clearly struck a nerve: Look at all these comments! ... Re: Robert Scoble saying he'd refuse to be listed because (a) it would raise questions about quid pro quo (b) gift would compromise his journalism, and (c) unengaged followers -- I get a & b, and applaud him for it. But I'm not sure I grasp the downside of having 100,000 "unengaged" followers. How do you know how... more... - Alan Mairson

Ubuntu 9.04 as slick as Windows 7, Mac OS X.
My power management issues are cleaned up on my laptop and it is a much slicker experience than 8.10... Installing on a new desktop tonight, hoping for better experience than with the beta [video drivers]. - Ben Hedrington
Your mileage may vary. I'd like to see a non-techie use Ubuntu for a month, it is a very nice Linux distro, I use it, I like it, but it's not for mom and pop. It's still light years out for the casual user. Test #1 for the non-techie user.. Install it on your laptop, and connect to your wireless network. Try that with a MacBook, or Windows laptop. It's the little things that matter. - Rob Fahrni
Its as slick as either until mom and pop try to install a program like you would windows then at's all over red rover, but I love it! - Andy
i like simpler/lighter distros, but linux and bsd certainly have come of age on the desktop - Iphigenie
great, great news! and I see positive signs that VMware is going to work, too :-) - Julie Bovee Hill
I think it could become a serious contender but the Linux folks don't really seem to care about that. They're interested in the server, which isn't a bad thing. Apple has proven you can make a serious OS friendly to the average user, and you can get to the horse power under the hood. - Rob Fahrni

Keith Olbermann Offers Sean Hannity $1000 For Every Second He Can Endure Waterboarding.
Sean Hannity doesn't have the guts to try something like this. I sure as heck wouldn't volunteer to do it. - Rob Fahrni
