Dear FriendFeed, I still love you but I have no time for you lately. Thinking of you and hope you're well. What's the weather like? Did you get time to do that thing at that place with those people? Hope so and hope that it was fabulous. Wow, look at the time. I have to go now, but promise to write soon. Much love from everyone here! Yours, me

The acquisition of FriendFeed continues to haunt me: just got my 8th (I think) ContentID claim about Downfall — FriendFeed! This one is from the guys who started it all back in 2010: Constantin Film. http://www.youtube.com/watch...
I'm starting to think that changing passwords might not be a bad idea even if they haven't patched up. Sure, if there's an ongoing exploit, they can just get your new password, but if they *already* have your password, you'll totally get screwed if you don't change it now.
The more I think about it, the more it seems Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) are basically just like any other electronic deposit account, except without the protections. (No fraud protection, no FDIC, etc., etc.) You might as well mail people gold through the USPS.
