Robert Scoble
What a big week for the iPhone. Can anything stop Apple from taking over the world?
yes, Google ;) - Helene
Apple? - Todd Hoff
Apple might yet stop themselves (see Google Voice). - Steve Lynch from twhirl
Apple = 10% Microsoft = 90%, Linux = maybe 1% . So for now M$ has won ;-) - arjo
the price tag - Mark
Two things that will stop Apple from taking over the (mobile) world: AT&T and Apple - arjo
stupid App store rules :P Oh yea, AT&T sucks too - Susan Beebe
I'm guessing the FCC... - WarLord
App approval procedure... - Alex Sauceda
It's not about quanity, but quality and that's why Apple rules! - orionstarr from iPhone
reason, but as most people are irrational, perhaps not - sofarsoShawn
They already have taken over my world. I've started referring to my iPhone as my "prosthetic brain", and I'm only partly kidding... - Josh Bancroft from iPhone
I wish Apple ran everything. - orionstarr from iPhone
FCC Puts Wireless Industry Under the Microscope http://is.gd/2D5rg - WarLord
exploding iPhones!!! - Jan Firsching
yes. the only thing that can stop Apple is....Apple - Ouriel Ohayon
Yes - their dumb app store policy. Now Spotify fans are mad. Android might just capitalize on this walled garden - Dave Hodson
Apple screwing/stopping themselves was the first thing that came to mind; looks like a few others think much the same way. - Nate DiNiro
Zune Pass App on the iPhone next? haha :-p - FullSite
Dave Martin
Lovin the brizzly so far.
I added my name to the brizzly list after I saw your tweet. Is it too early for you to tell whether you'll use the app as your primary Twitter client? - Molly Block
Molly, I am planning on using brizzly and nothing but brizzly once it is back up. - Dave Martin
I added my name for an invite also -- if you think it's useful, it must be! :) - Helene
Just received my brizzly invite yesterday, Dave. Looking forward to giving it a test drive. - Molly Block
Doug Levy
I hope there was only minor damage, but kitchen fires can be nasty: RT: @SFoodie Fire Closes Tadich Grill http://blogs.sfweekly.com/foodie...
Historical place, I hope the restaurant is okay! - Helene
Looks like it'll reopen tomorrow. All is well. Am about to leave LAX. How are you? - Doug Levy from email
Next Thursday - Advertising, PR, and Marketing Suck! Now What? SFAMA w/ @gkawasaki @loic & @scobleizer http://www.sfama.org/events...
Scoble will no longer be there. But he wanted to! - Louis Gray
thanks for the update! - Helene
and Louis Grey! Fwd: Next Thursday - Advertising, PR, and Marketing Suck! Now What? SFAMA w/ @gkawasaki @loic & @louisgray http://www.sfama.org/events... (via http://friendfeed.com/hkremer...)
alright, I admit, I'm beat after last night's Green Day concert - s/b Louis Gray :( - Helene
You can edit your updates in FriendFeed. :) - Louis Gray
Jim Connolly
FEEDBACK PLEASE: Anyone else noticing a surge in new subscribers, since the FaceBook buyout news broke?
I have had around 75 since last night. - Jim Connolly
I do. Don't get excited, though. These are the people that heard the news and wanted to try Friendfeed for the first time - Andre P. Siregar
I thought that originally too. Quite a few seem to have established accounts - probably didn't use them before. - Jim Connolly
Even I have Jim,and I'm not exactly a major contributor. - Paul Downing
Paul: I think Andre's right. It's probably just a stack of noobs trying the service out. - Jim Connolly
As for my case, these are people that found me on Twitter. I guess they then go to FF, use the Twitter import and added me - Andre P. Siregar
I wonder how many new users we will see in the next few months? Because I am so pro friendfeed, I'm getting email and (ironically) dm's on Twitter asking me about FriendFeed and whether I think it's right for them. - Jim Connolly
This is the advantage of joining a big company. I am seeing growth too. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Me too, Jim. And Robert, I don't really see how this is a benefit of joining a big company when the only joining that has been done is on paper, it's not like the communities have actually been joined yet. Unless you're trying to say that FF is getting a lot of new members because of the publicity and that's what's driving everyone's subscription surges. - FFing Enigma
Robert, are you saying these are current users of Facebook that want to check Friendfeed out? I think it doesn't matter who bought Friendfeed in this case. FF is in the news, and that's what made new people join - Andre P. Siregar
Think of it as a really really small-scale Oprah effect - Angelo Rodrigues
Robert: There's no one left that's not already following you, surely? :-) - Jim Connolly
Jim: I've gotten hundreds of new followers in the past 24 hours. The news sure brought a lot of people here to check out FriendFeed. - Robert Scoble
I can say I've suddenly come to look at my own, dormant account since the news. - Stephen Palkot
I'm more in here today than anywhere else, because I am interested in the opinions of the heavy users, that's all. - ilterocktive
Robert: The question is (as always) will they come back / stay? - Jim Connolly
i moved because of the news... - Chad Larson
Yeah. My queue was at 40, now it's 101. - Tinu Abayomi-Paul
Yes, this absolutely has happened. It was about 4x normal yesterday. - Louis Gray
Actually even I have new subscribers, I don't know why. Haven't shaved since monday. - ilterocktive
Yes Jim I have. Just wasn't sure what exactly was the reason for the surge but now that you mention it, does make sense .... Tim J @ WWW.MHWD.ORG - Tim Tunnicliff from email
I predict that the increase in users will be the same as Twitter: a large increase, people won't "get it" and then the regular users will be the only ones again, but w/ SPAM on the rise :( - Helene
Robert Scoble
So, what did Twitter do to piss off the bots? Twitter is under a denial of service attack. More here:
http://status.twitter.com/post... is Twitter's status update where they say they are down because they are under a denial of service attack. - Robert Scoble
Good thing this didn't happen a few days ago or else we'd be talking about ScobleGate II. :) - paisano
http://status.twitter.com/post... - "Update: the site is back up, but we are continuing to defend against and recover from this attack." Well it isn't back up. - Holger Eilhard
It wasn't Twitter it was you Scoble. Great jobs pissing the bots off. - Ryan Cummins
Holger the API is back up - Mike White
Robert, it seems every social network is acting slow, LiveJournal, Facebook, GoogleReader was, Linkedin, and even Last.fm - Matt Ruiz
Twitter was up again for a couple of seconds... will keep trying. - Jordi Soler
Mike: Tweetdeck hasn't updated for me. Wait, now it has... Site is also showing up again. - Holger Eilhard
Everyhing is slow except Friendfeed - Asgeir
I don't know... I am having Friendfeed problems too - Kimberle Kelly
I hate to say it but it doesn't seem likely that Twitter is the only target being DDoS'd. Facebook and LinkedIn have both been having problems with certain services since around the same time. - Michael Owens from iPhone
Yep. Seems Twitter's recovering: I've been able to log into it twice in the last minute. Haven't been able to post yet, though. - Jordi Soler
Looks like FB is also being fekked with by the DoSers, according to AP http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic... - Thom Kennon
Kimberle: FriendFeed is working here fine. - Robert Scoble
facebook is slow too - hows friendfeed then? - michelle harris
guys, I am hearing from sources on IRC on DALnet that Friendfeed is also being attacked - Mark
FriendFeed stopped loading quite a few times this morning. And a few of my comments failed to post too. ... like I just had to try twice to post this. - Daniel Sims
i've been getting lotsa latency on FF all a.m. - Thom Kennon
What does this mean? Are all sites susceptible to attack like this? (i'm not a geek enough to know) - Helene
yep, I posted on this an hour ago http://butyoureagirl.com/2009... - Adria Richards
This was a test to see if we would run to FF - and we did :-) - courtney benson
It looks like most of the prime players in social media aside from FriendFeed have been having problems all morning. Damn antisocial script kiddies! - Michael Owens from iPhone
facebook can't open... also i've problems with ff... i couldn't post my comments - Zeynep Okyay
wonder if this is the mullahs in Iran, hunting for green faces everywhere... - Thom Kennon
Note: I am getting 57% packet loss on Friendfeed right now - Mark
Facebook is struggling too. - L.P. NEENZ FALEAFINE
the grid is leaking! - Thom Kennon
Robetr or someone make a tinychat page or something we need somewhere to discuss this - Mark
Iran, North Korea... - Jason Nunnelley
funny how Twitter's problem is affecting the entire social networking world - Kimberle Kelly
I'd love to know what kind of a change in traffic FriendFeed receives when Twitter goes down. Can you see a spike? - Dan Monsieurle
If Twitter gets massive attack, could that cascade onto other sites. If so, how? Thoughts? - Bob Morris (polizeros)
I like how the NY Times started Digging their stories, instead of tweeting them, so they still show up here on FF. - Mike White
Hey, I've been able to post on Twitter! http://twitter.com/jordiso... - Jordi Soler
The script kiddies in DALNET and UNDERNET are saying Friendfeed is being hit by thousands of botz - Mark
is it just my connection or is FF now loading slowly? Does N Korea hate us because we're social? :) - jeff hammond
Bob: any site that polls Twitter for status updates, like FF and Facebook, would fail to receive a response. - Kevin Arth
Mark, i'm not seeing any slowdown in FF. - dthree
Severe packet loss still coming from twitter.com, many API calls are being rejected. - Mark
As long as i can see these comments and see there is a problem with Twitter and other social media, I am fine. Hope everything gets back to normal soon. - Ashish
I've put in an API call to get Scoble's list of followers about ten times now and every one has failed - Mark
loved the comment someone made about CNN it will take them two days to report the Twitter outage - courtney benson
CNN are reporting on (almost gushing about) the DoS. think maybe they're still pissed about #cnnfail ? - Jay Shapiro from BuddyFeed
Well what do you know CNN made it in two hours. Guess one of their 7 reporters got the news from the Internet. :-) - courtney benson
nothing on 4chan about the attacks in the random page from what I can see - Mark
here's something weird - i tried posting to FB update with link to a thread here and it fails, 3 x now - "network" error. - Thom Kennon
"Flickr has the hiccups." too... - Holger Eilhard
somebody call the sports writers over at ESPN to let them know too... they had their "social networks" turned off yesterday. now we know they feel. - Thom Kennon
hehe. It was about a year ago that twitter was really bad, do you remember? - Mark
Reposts from Twitter are staring to appear here on FF. Maybe the worst is over? - Bob Morris (polizeros)
I hope people are checking DNS servers. Often when multiple major independent services are DoS down it's via a DNS attack - Keith Barrett from Android
Facebook just came back for me - Bob Morris (polizeros)
Mark Twitter was almost constantly down in 2007 and 2008 and always showed off a famous graphic of a whale. Now known as "fail whale." - Robert Scoble
Members of 4chan's /b/ are indeed claiming that they exploited Twitter to cause the outage: http://ff.im/6fMrU -- whether they really did it or not is an entirely different story. /b/tards occasionally take credit for things that they do not do related to hacking / DDoS / etc - Michael Owens
I first found i couldn't tweet around 3 hours ago. Wondered what was up--now I know~! - Patricia Skinner
I get terrified of going to /b. never know if you are going to see naked images of 16 year old polish boys or photoshopped images of Sarah Palin having a shit. - Mark
Nah, probably some1 did it 4 the heck of it or 4 a challenge! sigh :( - polou/indigo_bow
@Apostol cannot be just by @RobertScoble by himself unfollowed 106,000 people on Twitter there r more reasons 2 DDoS. There r hobbyists that wants 2 challenge themselves or professionals doing those kinds of attacks 4 the reasons we might not even known until much later. - polou/indigo_bow
Live Journal acknowledged they're under a DDoS attack, too. http://community.livejournal.com/lj_main... - Amie Gillingham
Twitter back up on my grid, funny but zero trending topics in the right rail. Am using #dos as hashtag but not much found there, yet. - Thom Kennon
Twitter was back about 2 hours ago but again it isn't working. - Zeynep Okyay
We're wondering how long it will take for someone to try to blame 4chan for this. - 3Cinteractive®, L.L.C. from twhirl
We can survive future DDOS attacks by adopting an alternate, robust networking solution for tweets: http://crankypm.com/2009... - DGentry
I don't think its about just Twitter its about the Web's vulnerability and Google finally jump on the bandwagon to assist 2 investigate this DDoS attack. I start 2 notice that some websites all over r slowing down or degrading in some form today. - polou/indigo_bow
I had a feeling it would happen sometime. DoS attacks are not all that uncommon. - Nile Flores
I don't think it is coincidental that twitter just "warmed" up their malware filter and #boom DoS attack. Story about filter here. http://bit.ly/xdfvN(Cnet) orignal blog http://bit.ly/4zPddP - Ron Hudson
What I don't get is that some people are getting tweets out... and I can't get anything... - Robert Freeze
Robert apparently the site is "up" but the api is still shaky. Some apps are getting through while other's are still down. It probably has to do with network topography and where different apps backend servers are located. - Ron Hudson
I was able to post through friendfeed, and through twitter.com, but SocialScope is timing out :( - Ron Hudson
my friendfeed entries are having trouble posting on Twitter - is the problem twitter ? - Mekkar
I used Google and it was down for a couple of minutes I was going to tweet about it and that was down too I wonder if someone was doing a demo of a zombie network..maybe it was a sales pitch? - BairdWilliamson
open microblogging standards have a chance to distribute the functions over multiple heterogeneous networks - Mike Chelen
This morning, I noticed that FriendFeed 'lost' pictures I've posted from a Facebook page (but not the whole entry) - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Disqus lost 1 of my comments about this DOS attack, on my own Tumblr. But I saw it.. twitted! - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Louis Gray
Even the Drudge Report made Twitter's downtime a top headline. I guess that's as big a clue as any that the site is mainstream.
Picture 6.jpg
ha, like it's the only day Twitter ever stopped. - SolidSmack
Right. But the "newbies" don't remember 2007 and 2008. :) - Louis Gray
.... and that with all those millions, they still can't scale it. - Jim Connolly
too funny - Susan Beebe
They act like it's new news - Jesse Stay
and LOL that Louis reads the Drudge Report - *I* don't even read that ;-) - Jesse Stay
I dunno. If Drudge reported it, it probably isn't true. Heading back over to Twitter now... - Ben Greenberg from twhirl
I'd share this on Twitter... if I could. - Helene
Jesse, I check on the Drudge Report every once in a while. He doesn't have a real RSS feed, and finds interesting stuff (or has an amusing slant). And you thought I couldn't take in even more news... - Louis Gray
@trish thanks for getting that song stuck in my head. the day is now ruined ;) - Jenna Bilotta
Jesse - another Drudge reader here. Saw that too. Didn't know Drudge even knew about Twitter. - Hutch Carpenter
Drudge Report? Is that thing still around? - Dave Hodson
Robert Scoble
Twitter is down. Oh, what will the SEO experts, the celebrities, the spammers, the bots, and the social media experts do?
Come to FF! - Simon Wicks
Give Friendfeed a shot? - Rubin Sfadj
Hopefully they don't come to FriendFeed :) - Robert J Taylor
Hang out on FF - Roberto Bonini

They are so freeeking out. - SolidSmack
I couldn't tweet about it, so I told my wife instead. - Patrick Lightbody
Big ups to the FriendFeed massive! - Josette
I tried retweeting that. *sigh* - Andy McIlwain
Call them to join friendfeed, and make - Madhav Tripathi
Hopefully FF won't get killed by the Tweeters flocking over here. - phil baumann
ok.. here ya go..twitter being down has forced me here. Haven;t tried FF yet so... - cheapsuits
I suspect the bots will rejoice.... - walidmREALTOR
just like ya possibly twiddle their thumbs... - Baba
Let's see where these so-called "social media experts" go to fill the void of Twitter. - Christian
I can't open twitzap.com - ybs
Can FF servers manage such a massive movement? - Samuel Goëta
since bots supply at least 25% of Twitter traffic, should we feel the worst for them right now? - Kevin Norman
write a post about twitter being down as a threat to humanity, may be?:) - Nikos Anagnostou
Twitter down... can't post on Facebook,,. so it's FriendFeed! - carrotmadman6
So your're not responsible for that ? Strange... :-) - Enikao
lay on the floor and spin in circles - SolidSmack
Maybe the SocMedExperts will go back to Plurk since Scoble likes Friendfeed. :) - Jay Gilmore
thank God, now we can get back to work - E.P. Scott
if they are the experts they claim to be then they should be here! - Mark V. Fusco
Facebook seems frakked too. - Gregg Le Blanc
I get tweet trough tweetdeck... - Giorgio
I need serious help with FF. For an idiot like me this isn't so intuitive really. Help section is nice but I need someone to hold my hand ..bleeech. Don't get me wrong I am sorry I was reluctant to try FF before - cheapsuits
I blame Scoble. It's always his fault :-) - Keith Barrett
but how am I going to tell the world I need a cup of tea???? nooooooo - Rachel Clarke
Giorgio - I'm seeing some activity through the Twitter API, too (that's what TweetDeck uses, I believe); not a lot, but some - Robert J Taylor
I thought it was just my connection. ;-) I'm also having problems with Facebook today. - Timothy Federwitz
yeah, it seems the web interface is down but the api is working.. - Giorgio
I think the social media experts are going to spend the next hour talking about Twitter being down - Keith Barrett
Maybe read a book for a change? - Yiorgos Adamopoulos
Scoble's followers where the glue keeping Twitter together! now that he's 'pulled the pin' and released them all, Twitter has fallen down and can't get up. - MikeAmundsen
I'm so lost this morning without my cup-o-Twitter - frank barry
They'll comment on it, much like I just did. - Marlin Forbes
Man imagine if this had happened on #followfriday... - Rob Paller
Facebook is copying twitter too closely...even to going down at the same time - Robert Littlejohn
Yiorgas: read a book for a change? I do that anyway, but only about 10/month. need more twitter time to balance it out - Rachel Clarke
Does Twitter have what it takes to be a big player? We've been working with their API on a project and every time there is something out of whack. Anyone else have the same issues? - Chris Nadeau
twitter is really down, I think twitter itself should have a site that tweets when it's down :) - Ata İsmet Özçelik
They will use FF to inform their friend that twitter is down - Didier Girard
Show up here I'm thinking. :-) - Dion Hinchcliffe
Huge exodus to FF! - akihito
We will start feeding friends and keeping up our identi.ca 's - JuneM
What's been the longest twitter outage on record thus far? - Dusty Edenfield

I don't understand why you maintain an account when you have such contempt for Twitter & those who use it. - Liz
they will cry in their soup - Bobby Griffith

Well Robert, where will you go when they all come here? - Tokyo Dan from iPhone
it's back up. made ya look - Kevin Norman
Strangely, search.twitter.com is up. - Marlin Forbes

@Dani, who knows... the might merge or something... explain the strange twitter is pulling fb down 2.. - Sebastiaan van den Akker
Did Scoble bring Twitter and FB down as he unfollowed everyone ? winks -) - Del_
This is very interesting that it is impacting more than one social network ... can't even speculate what the cause is yet. Not getting much work done today I'm afraid, going to be following these conversations.. - Joe Magennis
I haven't been on twitter for days. I guess I picked the wrong morning to jump back in. - Jeff Stannard

The smart ones will go to FriendFeed ;) - Helene
The spammers should go to MySpace... - Dennis Bjørn Petersen
Tweeple will come to FriendFeed! - LauraLee Dooley

No, the smart ones are ALREADY on FriendFeed :) - Susan Beebe

This actually made me laugh out loud, because I was thinking the same thing! - Dan
Could this mean that CNBC was right??? Nooooooooooo! - travispuk
I was planning to unfollow a bunch of followers due to Twitter's follow limit rule kicking in at the ~#2000 user level. I have to wait with that then... ;) - Martin Lindeskog
FF FTW - Eran Even-Kesef
Let's see how well Friendfeed handles this Twitter outage :) - Rene Silva
Re previous comment of mine, 'Nooooooo!' was for CNBC being right, not that twitter is dead. ;) - travispuk
life goes on - Eran Even-Kesef

I can not play 140mafia!!! This sucks sooooo bad :( - Sam Beckett
Twitter outage is causing issues with both facebook and friendfeed. I guess we know where everyone is going instead of twitter. - April Russo (FForever!)
facebook? no way :) - Sasha Kovaliov
Twitter being down is a a relief to me this morning! Now I can stay OFF it rather than fitting it into every 30 second change of task! n - Arleen Boyd
at this rate they will have to start sending out junk mail via the post office again... oh the humanity - Terry Bruce
Nothing seems to work, I think it will be the Friend Feed greatest traffic boost ever - Jacob Kobi Gamliel
guys, is it Ddos attack? or smth like that? as I understand twitter is hosting somewhere and this datacenter is down. am i right? - obolonskyi
FriendFeed traffic is rocking now... - Jacob Kobi Gamliel
social media "experts" might need to actually find other work to do. - Luis Sandoval

Hopefully they will move to FF :) - Martynas

I feel like we are all stranded on a tropical Island together - Jeff Wiant

Wondered why tweetdeck wasn't loading anything. actually got some programming work done. lol - Justin Long
friendfeed rules! - Kevin Dolan
twits will move, but only until twitter is back online, then there will be a mass exodus. Remember during all of the 2007/2008 fail whales users still flocked back to it regardless. - travispuk
Twitter, Facebook, now Posterous... 4chan organize an attack or something? - Sam Harrelson from IM
Thank goodness FF is still working. :) - 3Cinteractive®, L.L.C. from twhirl

took inordinate amount of time to get into ff today as well - A Zmaj
Hmmm DoS attack...someone wanting a ransom from Twitter? - Mike Gargano
Guess they'll have to either pick up the phone or do some work :) - Graham Bunting
Can someone with 94k followers really mock the the celebs and experts devoid of Twitter? - Augie Ray
Hey, no bogus follow messages in my inbox for a while! ;-) - Julie Barrett from twhirl
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
Facebook is giving up the ol', "Transport error (#1001) while retrieving data from endpoint `/ajax/inline_comments.php': A network error occurred. Check that you are connected to the internet" message now. - 3Cinteractive®, L.L.C. from twhirl
I think this is bigger than Twitter and FB... I think it's some interweb routes or something. I had a VoIP call going with a party local to me and two across the country and I lost the two across the country, but maintained the local party. And others are commenting on other sites showing signs of outages. - Timothy Federwitz from Alert Thingy
Twitter is Down....panic..run.,,SOS! - Veetrag
What will they do? Use FriendFeed! - Chuck Huckaby
It's official. Twitter's problem is a DoS attack per twitter/status. - Roger Jennings
shhhh they'll come here - andy brudtkuhl
The real bummer for me is, now I actually have to listen to the radio to get the word of the day! - Travis Owen
is twitter connected with FB or Friendfeed? I am having page errors with both, Ajax issues with FB intermittently , I am no tech geek so I have no clue whats up and come here to learn - lisa coultrup
Maybe Ev's interview on the BBC last night didn't go down well with the Iranians! - Andrew from iPod
Status Blog says "We are defending against a denial-of-service attack." Mmmm... http://status.twitter.com/post... - akihito
Friendfeed it is then. - Aren Grimshaw
Now, It's up! - Martin Sliacky
Posterous isn't working properly either, at least for me. - Steven Melfi
What does DoS mean? - Kimberle Kelly
denial of service - Justin Long
I meant what does denial of service mean? (dumb blonde here sorry) - Kimberle Kelly
If it's true..or is it propaganda? - Alex Schleber
It's down, again. - Martin Sliacky
Thank you :o) - Kimberle Kelly
Ev coming onto the BBC last night and saying that they were asked by the US Goverment to keep Twitter up and running during the Iranian protests cannot have gone down well in Tehran! - Andrew from iPod
DoS on large portions of the internet. Is this 4Chan... Chinese... N. Korea... durkadurkastan... - Ryan Cummins
now having trouble getting to Friendfeed - Justin Long
look, few days ago Clinton back home with two imprisoned american journalists from North Korea and today Korea is attacking twitter? it is revenge))) - obolonskyi
maybe Robert's great unFollowing crashed the servers... no loss! Go FF - Jay Shapiro from BuddyFeed
some government is DDOS'ing the real-time internet to cover up something :-) http://leeprovoost.posterous.com/the-twi... - Lee Provoost
hmmm - abdellah
As I said, I predict a baby-boom in 9 months... wait and see! - Jordi Soler
SEO Experts can analyze their charts, celebrities and wannabe's can entertain us with video (maybe some cool Twitter Whore like stuff) , and social media experts can quickly become Fail Whale Experts. - Michele Lorito-Chase
@Lee Provost don't you thing you're going to be a little apocaliptic ? :-) - Filippo Ronco
Twitter downing has to be a lesson for all of us. if sometimes gmail or even google will be down. what we all are going to do in that situation??? - obolonskyi
@Filippo i've been suprised many times that reality is often more wacked up than the conspiracy theories of geeks :-p - Lee Provoost
I'm hoping the social media experts go away and do something useful. - Parvez Halim
@Lee this is true too :-) - Filippo Ronco
@Jordi LOL, considering that there are a vast amount of single male computer geeks out there in the twitter community, baby boom effect might be negligible :-D - Lee Provoost
what is bad here? here doesnt exist reply button =( - obolonskyi
@Lee single male computer geeks - LOL)) - obolonskyi
Go back to MySpace? - Juliana

What will the blackhat SEO experts, the SM spammers, and the social media experts do during a widespread outage? The answer is obvious: While sitting out the crisis they're fine-tuning their methodology. Seriously, your question offends me. There's a gazillion of SEO experts out there who do not abuse social media. - Sebastian
Sebastian there can't be a gazillion SEO experts! What's 10,000 keywords times 20?? (and that's being generous!) - Arleen Boyd
Would a social media expert consider it to be a crisis? If they rely so heavily on just one or two tools that it's enough to throw them into a tizzy, their expert status would seem to me to be ... questionable, at best. - Gord McLeod
Agreed. - Greg
Arleen, 10,000 keyword phrases times 20 is a tiny fraction of the search terms that are worth optimizing for. Think of the long tail. Also, consider lots of webmasters and even publishers / site owners / bloggers / Web developers ... SEO experts who are able to optimize their stuff quite successfully but don't sell or publish their expertise. Many of them, and even many SEO consultants, do make sensible use of social media, as plain users. - Sebastian
Gord, in a social media spammer's book 2 hours of outage, IOW 2 hours w/o sales from sneakily distributed links to questionable sales pitches, can sum up to way more than a good day's beer money. ;) However, "crisis" might be a term too strong for this potential loss. - Sebastian

RT @dariusdunlap "for me twitter is for getting interesting insights and ideas. I'm sure not going to get them from those who follow me!"
I think it's funny that some folks aren't getting the joke. :-) Subtlety doesn't always translate in 140 characters. Working on a blog post about following, and specifically the strange idea that you should ONLY follow those who follow you back. Part of the power of Twitter is that you don't have to "be friends." I can listen to folks I find interesting, whether or not they listen to me. - Darius Dunlap
And now that Twitter's down, everyone can write their own blog post on why they're unfollowing their tens of thousands of followers ;-) - Helene
Agreed Darius. Scoble and the other big movers may not follow me, but I can listen to them and glean information that I find informative, even if they don't "follow" me. For people like me that can't be on FF or Twitter a lot during the day at work, I can still keep informed. - Jack Wilson, K4SAC
Darius: Very good point (humor understood). I am rethinking my stance on how to use/utilize twitter. - Timothy Federwitz
I don't understand why some people feel obligated to follow back. I want my incoming stream to have a very high signal:noise ratio. You've got to earn followage from me. - Pistos

Rosemary + Helene + Pistos, I sooooo want to 'like' comments sometimes ... - Sebastian

Sebastian - and TAGS for comments. ;-) - Darius Dunlap
@Pistos @Darius I second that. In many cases comments provide way more value than the initial item. Just looking at who commented to an item offering those to possibly interested users based on whatever criteria is a good first step but not enough. - Sebastian

@Robert, I get the intention... that word just has negative contexts associated with it... like "stalker" and "obssessed". There's got to be a better way to express that enthusiasm!! In any case, I've overlooked advertising before to support good companies. :) - Lindsay

Sounds sad. I've chosen not to live dual lives. If someone has a problem with a (legalease kicking in!) heretofore unknown sibling/relative, that is *their* problem. I can't set that example for my son, have learned from my mother's and my MIL's mistakes :( - Helene

Cute kid! She likes you. - Louis Gray

Helene, yeah, and the little white kid looks all right, too. - Akiva
This was awesome for me, y'all. For the longest time, me and kids just didn't seem like an option. I thought I'd just be a tom cattin' gay dude living his life. But I can't wait to settle down. And if I end up being a single dad, so be it. Loving these changes that wisdom and life brings to you. - Derrick
and a fine white girl indeed - Melissa Janine

Yes, there actually is something worse than a xxxxxx presidency: it is Oobi, a preschool show my son likes. Drives me to Fox everytime! :-)
I had to do a websearch. Is it that show with the hands with eyeballs? - Morton Fox
Hmm, I will have to check if my friend, Dave (aka Ghosty) does a voice on that show. I know he does ones for Viva Pinata and a couple others for Fox. - Molly Song ;)
