"[I]t’s strange to have found success [at Google] and yet feel a need for greater fulfillment sufficient to pull you away from what’s generally recognized as the best workplace in America. It’s even stranger that Google is the first place I’ve ever worked where I feel that I’m part of the company as opposed to working for the company." - Bruce Lewis from Bookmarklet

FriendFeed Turns 5. The One-Time Pioneer Is Still Here -
"Five years ago today, a small aggregation startup called FriendFeed opened its doors, in beta, to intrigued early adopters who wanted to bring all the updates from different services they used into one place and follow friends. As was evident from initial coverage of the site from outlets such as the New York Times and TechCrunch, what grabbed attention as much as the product itself was its founders - a group of four former Googlers who had made their name on products like Gmail and Google Maps." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet

is it just me or is ff not importing my tweets?
I had to switch to Advanced Tweets. - Jeanine W.

Thanks for the hint. trying to set this up but "Status Twitter Error: @advancedtweets is unable to follow more people at this time. " - Nick B.
It's weird, but I got that same error, and then it worked anyway. - Absentee

Lets do a FF Zeitgeist 2011. This thread! Drop in your suggestions for the memorable posts of the year gone by.. :)
up.. - Abhishek
That one where whoever said that thing with that odd photo that the other guy didn't like and the thread was like huge and people kept commenting and bringing it to the top. Yeah, that one. - Andy Bakun
Thanks ANDY.. :) - Abhishek

Regarding FB/FF - Here's how it's [probably] going to work. You will most likely have an account merge, all of the services FriendFeed supports will now be aggregated on Facebook, and all of your FriendFeed friends will be in a "list" on Facebook. The FF Groups will become Facebook Groups. The FF lists will become Facebook Lists.
the only thing that might get lost in the shuffle would be the Saved Searches - those don't have an equivalence on Facebook, and may be hard to port over... - Nathan Chase
that's my guess anyhow. - Nathan Chase
still the issue at hand is the past data... if they could figure out how to port over all the previous conversations and comments to Facebook - that would be a monumental achievement - Nathan Chase
I'm feeling a little nautious just thinking about it. - Daniel Sims
I dont't want this. Don't like facebook. Don't want to be there. I think Friendfeed is over for me:( - Ozgur Uckan
Yup. - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
It did not happen. - Ahmet Yükseltürk
Kinda wish it did. - Nathan Chase
Not me. While I wish FF had regular maintenance, I'd much rather be neglected than get the constant UI/privacy issues that FB has. - Spidra Webster
Seconding Spidra. - Absentee
What Spidra said. - John (bird whisperer)
Agreed. - Andy Bakun
For better or worse, FF walks its own path. - Micah

Franc, a rememberer
A simple extension for Chrome I just made. / Pequeña extensión que acabo de hacer. / Basically the same ol' bookmarklet wrapped in a distinctive ff button. Check it out:
Love it! - Jesse Stay
cool! extension's first success! - Franc, a rememberer
Well, not sure it's working :-) I'm running OS X Chromium nightly, and clicking it doesn't seem to do anything. - Jesse Stay
But I like having the FF logo next to my URL bar, so that's a success :-) - Jesse Stay
It's right next to the Facebook logo - Jesse Stay
// EDIT: ok that's messy. here: Anybody know hoe to make it work on OSx? - Franc, a rememberer
Works fine on Mac OS X 5.0.335 dev channel release. It looks like extensions are disabled on the extensions website and on Chrome internal pages, but if you go to like the bookmarklet pops up just fine. You can try to remove the %20 in the action_url string, but removing it didn't seem to affect my usage either way. - Mark Trapp
Good work, Francisco. - Micah
Thanks, Micah. @Goadkicker Super! - Franc, a rememberer
Actually, it seems to work, just wasn't working on the link to the extension. Seems to work fine on other pages though so I think we're good. - Jesse Stay
Neat - кот
Great to hear, Jesse. Btw. What does the facebook button do? :-) - Franc, a rememberer
Francisco, here's the Facebook one: - from what I hear it was written at a Facebook hackathon by an intern there. - Jesse Stay
I really like the small scrolling bar they styled there. Sweet. - Franc, a rememberer
If you could combine FFcheck with the bookmarklet, that would be very useful - Shey
and friendfeedTranslate - if someone does this, I suggest using kynetx to do it. It will give you one jquery-based language to write extensions with one code base across most browsers: - Jesse Stay
*ears perk up* - Micah
Jesse, are you an advisor to kynetx (I see they're based in Lehi)? Do you know what their business model is - have they stated anything as such publicly. It certainly looks interesting. - Micah
Micah, I am not an advisor, nor do I have any vested interest. I just really like what they're doing. Their business model is in building custom apps for brands interested, or in consulting. I'm not sure what other types of deals they do. Their developer platform is free though. You can ask @windley or @fulling on Twitter though and I'm sure they can answer more detailed questions than I'm aware. - Jesse Stay
Of note, @windley wrote the Digital Identity book for O'Reilly, and has a very strong identity background. I fully expect them to go full force into the identity realm with what they're doing. Imagine completely customized context (such as this extension, but even more), through extensions, action cards, and bookmarklets, across all browsers. - Jesse Stay
@Shey do you have a link to ffcheck? never heard of it. EDIT: never mind. ..I think it's doable. ;-) as for ff translate ... - Franc, a rememberer
Lol, if it's doing so, I had no idea. @Slippy - Franc, a rememberer
Wow, just what i needed, thanks Francisco! - Majento
@Slippy ¬¬ haa I should have seen it coming! I'm glad it's useful, Majento. - Franc, a rememberer
cool, but like the bookmarklet doesn't work in recent builds of chrome (e.g. 5.0.375.99) - scott willeke
I'm gonna test that and update. - Franc, a rememberer
what seems to be the issues?, it does work fine in 5.0.375.99 (Build oficial 51029) beta and 6.0 dev channel (windows 7) - Franc, a rememberer
it's not working for me, too. can we solve this problem? - ToMtOm
Yeah, seems to be broken in the current stable version. Clicking the button doesn't do anything. :( I guess it's back to the regular bookmarklet for the time being. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
It broke for me too. - Skyler Call from Android
I've been checking it for the past week or so and it only seems to be broken in old installs of chrome. new installs are ok. I dunno what could be causing this. :P - Franc, a rememberer
doesn't work any more: chrome 15.0.874.121 on OS X - кот
sorry, eugene I've been having trouble to make it work on all installs. are you testing it outside of the chrome extension gallery as well? If you or anyone could help reviewing the background page code, here it is: - Franc, a rememberer

Does FriendFeed cause awesomeness or just accelerate it?

My esteem for Facebook increases a little every day they keep FriendFeed up.
This inspires me to add this to our dinner time grace. My husband usually says, "thank you for one more day of life." The boy usually says, "and thank you for another great day." I will add, "and thank you for keeping Friendfeed alive." - Laura Norvig from iPod
A Gunny named Slickback
yeah yeah I know don't use IE. But I am and it seems to have a problem, see the image below. This black bar shows up here and on some other website where add files should be. When I right click it I get Adobe Flash player settings. Anyone have any ideas?
flash player out of date? - Sir Shuping is just sir
updated it, The only add on I have is ad block. I've disabl;ed that as well and still see it. - A Gunny named Slickback
Kol Tregaskes
Only just realised my YouTube is not feeding into FriendFeed. :-(
Kol Tregaskes
Interesting, tweets are not coming in to FriendFeed now. With this and others, FF is slowing dying as a service. :-(
Delicious links are also broken. - Nils Sandin
Other services are broken today as well, won't login. - Nils Sandin
tweets are importing for me. - Big Joe Silence
Hmm, maybe it's Twitter itself. I'm trying to browse my profile and it's dog-slow, - Kol Tregaskes
In regards to other services, yep. I've just re-added GReader and that works. My YouTube likes go through G|Reader so that's at least fixed YouTube import. - Kol Tregaskes
Youtube favorites have been working for me. I didn't have any issues with delicious today, but I see other people who I'm following did in the past few days. - Andy Bakun
I've heard that some people have to manually update Tumblr but I refuse to verify that. - Akiva
My Flickr and Tumblr imports have been coming in on their own lately. I use Advanced Tweets for Twitter importing, so I'm not sure what's going on with the standard Twitter connection. - John (bird whisperer)
Considering I have the option TO import stuff (working or not)... Still better than Google+ *runs off giggling* - Johnny from iPhone
Google+ never presented itself as an aggregation service, has it? - Akiva
My Twitter import stopped about 2-4 weeks ago. Twitter export stopped well over a month ago. Very well noted in FF feedback room. - Joe from iPod
Akiva, nope, thankfully. - Kol Tregaskes
Most tweets are not importing (look at the news feeds like CNN -- -- last tweet was on September 12, or Wire Update -- -- same date; same with LA Times and NYT, where only their Tumblr and YouTube accounts are coming in). This has happened before. I bet it will happen again. - Stephen Mack
My Twitter import hasn't worked since February. =\ Most other services seem ok if a little slow. - rönin
Gave it a kick start. Thanks for the patience. - Benjamin Golub
Thank you, Benjamin! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Thank you, Benjamin! Any chance of FF-to-Twitter getting fixed? ;) - Victor Ganata
Twitter import still doesn't work for me. =( Any chance you can take a look at it Benjamin? - rönin
Looks like Twitter import is working now. - Kol Tregaskes
Twitter import not working again... - Joe
Oh yeah, boo. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Kol Tregaskes
I got a Service not available page a minute ago. - Kol Tregaskes

82,099 comments until a million comments on FriendFeed:
82,098 now. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
82,097... ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Beat that, FriendFeeders, hehe. :-D - Kol Tregaskes
I'd have to make 965,859 more comments to meet that level. - John (bird whisperer)
Do-able then. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
You just have to make 4 times the total comments I've ever made in order to get a million (or 50 times the total comments I've ever made). That's... hard to believe. - Stephen Mack
Someone has got the calculator out. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Seriously though, like I said in my other thread I think only a fraction are by my own hand. A lot are form imported comments. Wish FF split up those stats. - Kol Tregaskes
(dont poke the sleeping giant or we may all get the fb boot, :o) - chaz2b
Oh yeah, sorry I better go back to sleep. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
I won't tell anyone. ;-) - John (bird whisperer)
Ta. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
