"Who says defense is a bad thing? I do not need to see a dunk on every play to be entertained. There is no defense in the NBA. The scoring averages of College Basketball should be the norm. How about we figure out how to lower NBA scores?" - Franklin Pettit

What's your favorite mindmapping software? I have been using Mindjet but looking for alternatives.
Have you taken a look at MindMeister..? (http://www.mindmeister.com/) - Andrew Terry
I didn't know there is a program for that. Thank you. - Serif Varli

13,000 people think Facebook is going to start charging in 2009. Please DO NOT invite these folks to FriendFeed. Idiots.
Uwe: yeah, I just think it's funny that some people will believe the lamest crap just because it's on the Internet. - Robert Scoble
You can count me in for not inviting them over here! - Jannifer @wordsforliving
Robert these 13000 people would not know what to do on Friendfeed and leave in less than 5 minutes of signing up. - Bhavishya Kanjhan
this isn't the first or the last group like it, it's a good indicator of which of your friends are morons. - Richard Lawler
Eldon: I hope I don't have that many idiots following me. :-) - Robert Scoble
How about emails like these: "Bill Gates/Nokia/whatever will donate <something>, if this message is sent to 1000000 people". When I get something like this from some friend, I get disappointed on him/her... - Jemm
there are 100 of these groups each week... everyone ignores them (well everyone important anyway ;)) - Thomas
Funny thing is - facebook is probably worth $3.99. Although I notice the French says $3.99 per month which would be a bit steep. - Matthew Neale
but wait, i thought hotmail was closing the free service unless 2 million people add group Z ? - Matt Randles
These groups are as old as Facebook itself. All they do is prove: heavy Facebook users = lemmings. :p - Chris Charabaruk
I love you, Robert! - Ordinarybug Heather
There will always be a VIP group of sorts... back when Facebook started it looked like early adaptors were joining over there. Then came Twitter, now Friendfeed. If Friendfeed gets too mainstream (if that's possible) I'm wondering what's next. - David Bisset (sn)
Why would they do that? They are already getting tons of money from sponsors and advertisers. Duh! - Shevonne
@David: In the Web 2.0 world, there's bound to be something new and already in the works. I wonder what it is too, but I'd be surprised if it's not currently under construction, or even ready to launch. - Chris Charabaruk
I wouldn't call them idiots. If they believe it, they believe it. So if it happens are the non-believers idiots? Hmmm - Bwana ☠
:/... I doubt it will happen. They get enough money from advertising surely. - ralphsaunders
This was the funniest quote I've seen microblogged in a while! Of course how many of these people use to (or still do) pay for Classmates or Reunion, so naturally they believe this garbage. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Reminds me of the false rumors a few years ago about AOL, Yahoo, and MS planning to charge for email to eliminate spam. Move on - nothing to see here. - Mike Doeff
It's already 39,265 members in that certain group… - Daniel Schildt
One thing to notice in this compared to older rumors is the amount of speed people notice it. - Daniel Schildt
I might join and post something saying "Suckas!" - Shevonne
40,000 now. Wow. I kind of enjoy the silly little worries of people. - Daniel Zarick
wow. morons. Everybody knows that friendfeed's not gonna start charging until 2010! - Jim is digging out.
@Jim - Facebook - Shevonne
Shevonne... yes, I know. I was referring to Scoble's original post where he urged us not to invite them over here. - Jim is digging out.
@Jim - We should. We would probably scare them from ever using the Internet. hahaha - Shevonne
Shevonne -- good point. - Jim is digging out.
These are the same idiots who are worried about being charged per email. I don't think they'd know what to do with friendfeed even if they were invited. - Mr. Gunn
I wonder how many are over the age 0f 17. How many of voting age are in the group of 13,000. - Franklin Pettit
I swear that first sentence just made my blood pressure shoot up 20 points. The second sentence rapidly lowered it. I have a few people added who unfortunately take everything forwarded to them as fact. They will never get an invite. This is my hideout from the people who shouldn't be allowed online. - ilene
Chris, the group is not about pro features. They claim there will be NO free access to FB after Dec 31. Quite a different thing... - Ray Metzen
And the group has 56,000 members now! Amazing... :( - Ray Metzen
More than ever… 91,481 members at the moment of writing. - Daniel Schildt
LOL, yes! Go go go! - Chris Charabaruk
Hmm... I'm not sure which disappoints me more... People being overly anxious over the idea that Facebook will supposedly be charged for use. (This evidentially isn’t true) Or the knowledge that a number of people I don't care to count are here on FriendFeed discussing those that have joined groups concerning Facebook fees as if they are second class citizens. Take a good look at... more... - Jamie Howlett
funny thing is people not wanting to pay when there getting new games and apps that can keep you entertained if it did cost (which it never will) i sure would pay the Cheap $3.99 month - Luke Moers
Of course Facebook is going to start Charging people money! Everyone knows it! By the way, did you hear Obama tried to move Christmas to January 8th? (its a fb group too so it must be real!!) - Rebecca

The Rise and Fall of FriendFeed - http://www.fpettit.com/2009...
I don't think FriendFeed has a user base of 45 million. Thats roughly twitter's user base. - DGentry
Ok. That number was not solid. I pulled that from another source. I should have linked it and stated that the number was not verified. - Franklin Pettit from email
It is estimated that FriendFeed's user base is between 170,000 and 200,000. - Louis Gray
I'd wager no more than 200K "registered users", and no more than 15K "active users". The most popular users have no higher than 50K followers, and considering the similarity of user profiles (Scoble, Leo, Mashable, Kevin Rose, etc) it's likely that they shared many (most) users. This is substantiated by casual browsing the most popular and most active users subscriber base. I could be wrong, but I see no evidence to point to higher numbers than that... - Jeremy Toeman
366,112 users being tracked via FFHolic.com - AJ Batac
ouch, so much for my math! - Jeremy Toeman
