10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed - http://thomashawk.com/2009...
10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed
I wish there was a AIR client for FF though. - barl0w
Twhirl works well for FF and it's an AIR client. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
Great article. I want to learn more about the dumping the RSS feeder part. You should share some tips with that. Good stuff. - Amani
Love seeing FF through the eyes of someone who's not a traditional techie =) - FFing Enigma
Thanks Bob! - barl0w
A big part of why I wrote this post and have it running in my number one photo spot on Flickr right now is because I want more of my photography friends to sign up for the service. I *love* seeing photos here on FriendFeed and there are so many talented photographers who are not here yet who need to be. If we can get more of them to sign up, you guys will love their work. Of course there are many great photographers already on here but still a lot more who could join. - Thomas Hawk
I had to re-share this with all my FB friends. :) - Kelly W.
Still trying to figure out this whole friendfeed experience. I've had the account for a while and see lots of my twitter friends posting via ff - Demetri Mouratis
great piece! - mashable
Hi Demetri =) Different people use FF different ways because they want to get different things out of it. What are you hoping to get out of it? - FFing Enigma
Thanks for the tip. I had FF but really never 'got' what it was for. This helped! - Molly Nichelson from twhirl
Nice post Thomas. - Paul Wade
TH - for those photographers that are not on here, I put their flickr id into my Flickr Imaginary friend and see their images that way. However, it would be nice to get more photographers on here with their reader shares and such... - Justin Korn
This is definitely the best "Why Friendfeed" post I've seen. - Nick in Manila
Justin, agreed. I have a bunch of imaginary friend accounts for Flickr/Zooomr users as well. But it is nicer when they actually have accounts here, their work can be liked and commented to the larger FF community, etc. It seems like a few new people signed up today based on this post so I'm happy for that. Thanks Nick! - Thomas Hawk
I have AlertThingy FriendFeed Edition as well as AlertThingy v2 - Outsanity
Well said, Thomas. :) - Josh Haley
Nice list of reasons, all well thought out. While I'm at it, I wanted to tell you that I really like your new blog design too. - Karoli
Do most folks use FF in Standard or Real-time view mode? - Scott Loftesness
Only ever real-time.. it sits nicely on the second monitor as a Chrome App. - Greg Gannicott
Realtime here... - Chris Gulker
Did you just reformatted your post, Thomas? It a lot easier to scan through now. - Alan Le
Alan, a lot of times I post first and edit later. I probably shouldn't do that, but yeah, after posting I broke up some of the paragraphs better, bolded a few things etc., to make it easier to read. - Thomas Hawk
That's great. Make sure to check out Windows Live Writer for formatting blog posts if you haven't already yet. By the way, I love the new blog design. It's much better than when I helped you with the html way back. http://thomashawk.com/2006... - Alan Le
Y'know... I must've spent two months randomly Tweeting things like "Will someone PLEASE explain to me why I should be using FriendFeed?" ... And then two days ago I start using my account (I'd had one for a while)... and NOW someone finally makes a post outlining why I should be here. You're two days late, Mr. Hawk, two days late. :P - Lou
actually, there's no search for Russian word forms on Frf. For me that looks as if there's no search at all - orie
hmmm.. I didn't know that orie. It seems like there is a lot of international users on FF, that's surprising to me. - Thomas Hawk
I've been trying to make sense of FF for months now, but every time I come away confused. As it is I feel like I'm drowning under all the social networking sites available. I use Twitter, Plurk and Facebook the most, and I use Ping.fm so I only have to post status updates once. How can I integrate FF into this without making things even more confusing? - Chris Taylor
oooh! I found the zooomr version of this post with no formatting and I whined somewhere else in my FF feed. This one with all the formatting is better :D - Tamar Weinberg
I really liked how you did a post on Flicker - MaryAnn Chick Whiteside
All good reasons but #10 is my #1 reason :) - Mark Krynsky
Mark - agreed. Also, Thomas ... very nice blog. I like. - Amani
@Tamar, the unformated text was a problem on the Zooomr image. Kristopher's fixed that bug now so text in descriptions on Zooomr photos should format correctly now. - Thomas Hawk
I wasn't using FF, but signed up after your post. Now let's see if it is really so useful ;-) - Marcel Körner
@Marcel also take into consideration who you are subscribed to. Aside from maybe four on your current sub list, they are not very active at all on FF. This will affect your experience here. - Carlos Ayala
Didn't know there was a "Porn" room on FF (see screenshot)... - David Young
how did you see that they are not active on FF? - Marcel Körner
David, the "porn" room on FriendFeed isn't all that active actually. I'm not really interested in porn per se, just thought it was a good group name to claim in the great FriendFeed land group name grab of 2008. - Thomas Hawk
@Marcel by their numbers, and the fact that i know most of them and can tell you first hand that they are not. (if you hover over people's names you will see their numbers) - Carlos Ayala
still hard to beat 5 years on for speed - Thomas Power
So true Thomas: people still can't as a majority read dynamic feeds. - Zu from AOD
it gives you an easy key to the way back machine - chaz2b

Mike Fruchter
Check out the Friendfeed Favorites Twitter list I've added to Listorious http://listorious.com/fruchte... #friendfeed
Sweet! It's nice to be able to see the lists on a 3rd party site now - I still don't have 'em. - Daniel J. Pritchett
I think there is a full roll-out happening today, stay tuned. Lists have finally made Twitter useful again, a real game changer indeed. - Mike Fruchter
Wasn't it Rob Diana who wondered if "discovery" was the holy grail in social media? Listorious looks very nice. - Meryn Stol
Meryn, You are correct, those are Rob's words. I thought Indiana Jones discovered the Holy Grail ? - Mike Fruchter
Awww Mike, thanks for including me on this Twitter list! - Shevonne
Jorge, it looks like its pulling directly from the Twitter API. I'm not sure how real time it is though. - Mike Fruchter
Jorge, I think you have to be "chosen" to be part of their developer beta - I asked and got turned down. - Jesse Stay
As always, I appreciate being included. Many thanks. - AJ Kohn
nice to appear on that list, thanks! - Jeroen De Miranda

Louis Gray
Designing the Perfect Twitter Client Is Impossible. Tweetie Is Close. - http://blog.louisgray.com/2009...
Still waiting for someone to support Push notifications on the iPhone for Twitter. - Jesse Stay
I want Tweetie's sleekness, non-use-of-AIR, and pop-up media (but on the PC as well as Mac), Tweetdeck's groups, and Twhirl's integration with ping.fm and useful notification pop-ups. Tweetdeck just displays "[account] has received x new tweets" or whatever, but you have to go to the app to see what the messages are. I'm interested to see the new Nambu when it goes public - I liked the last build a lot, but it was too unstable to really use. - Jandy
And you would not be alone in wanting that, Jandy. It's interesting that none of the 5 I was looking at had desktop support, Web and iPhone. And Tweetie for PC doesn't exist. I don't use Groups as much (but probably should), so it's not a big deal for me. Lists on FriendFeed are critical. That's why I said making it perfect is impossible. Too many options, so nobody will ever have a monopoly. - Louis Gray
I don't really care about having the same app on desktop and iPhone - I tend to need different things from them. And at home I'm happy with Tweetie + Growl. I only really need the more power-user tools at work (where I have a PC and can't use Tweetie anyway), where I need groups to keep the flow down to something I can easily monitor while still concentrating on work, and notifications... more... - Jandy
@Jesse you could use for example Fring with the twitter extension to get Push on your iphone. @Louis, and what about images and videos? I find Brizzly very good in Images support, showing many of them directly in my stream.. - Jaap Willem
Jaap, I like Brizzly a lot. You can see my mentioning the support for pictures and rich media in the post. I tried to make sure I didn't leave anything out. - Louis Gray
Jesse, have you tried Boxcar? - Bryce Roney
@Louis, yes I saw that indeed, maybe it's nice to implement it as well in the chart the next time? As well the option to have the shortened URL's already expanded inline? But thanx for the great article - Jaap Willem
Leo Laporte
Leo is excited to learn more about how Facebook will use Friendfeed. Please don't change it, though!
I don't have a good feeling about this one ... - Boris Gordon
I think FF will certainly change (or, worst case, cease to exist). - Brett Kelly
maybe FF can just be the test box and we're all beta users, then port what works over to FB ... everybody's happy? yeah, it'll never work. - John
My guess is FF will pretty much freeze it's feature set and code base. FF engineers will start working on adding functionality to Facebook, and at some points 6-12mo from now, FF will go the way of Pownce. - Ken Sheppardson
I think the probable outcome is the Feedburner scenario; it still works, they just stopped innovating. - Gerardo Capetillo
when will they realize we do not necessarily want everything linked together. it is not always about trying to hide your idenity has it is just using different social media tools for different purposes. - R. Ferguson
I think Facebook will just kill Friendfeed - Terry Cleary
That's the spirit. I'm tired of the "when are we jumping" posts - this is the right attitude. - Jesse Stay
That's because you're "pro-Facebook", Jesse... of course you'd be tired of the anti-Facebook backlash. - Ken Sheppardson
FriendFeed = labs.facebook.com - Mike Doeff
I don't have a good feeling about this either. Hopefully FF and FB get better, only time will tell. - Kolomona
Does this mean I'll have to log onto my facebook page? I've been ignoring fb since January. - Dale
Facebook is going to just "flop" friendfeed, i can see it... but i would hate to see it end that way, friendfeed is that social networking site that really matters, and us "true" early friendfeed users will alway remember it as the best site ever! - Bryce Campbell
Ken, I'm not just "pro-Facebook". I understand it. I know the team. I also understand FriendFeed and somewhat understand their team as well. I think I'm more qualified to say that than anyone. - Jesse Stay
I don't see this as a good sign for FF....innovation will be geared for Facebook, FF could be a FB labs sort of thing, but it's not the same. I have yet to see mergers or acquisitions not kill off or turn whatever was eaten into a dead pile of junk. Time Warner -- AOL anyone? - Ⓐ ☠ slayerboy ☠ Ⓐ
FriendFeed will change about as much as Flickr changed after Yahoo took over. - Gus
Andrew, exactly. I think Facebook desperately needs and wants something like this. I don't expect it to go away. - Jesse Stay
Somehow I don't believe that FriendFeed will survive this. Let's enjoy it as long as it's still around. - Patrick Harms
Yahoo! bought Flickr and Delicious. Conde Nast bought Reddit. Those are still around and in good form. Let's hope FriendFeed gets better instead of disappearing. - Jeff Harbert
When something that you use is bought up by a giant I think that you feel that you lose something.Looking forward to seeing the outcome.Ger - gerald miller
Agreed, don't slow it down - Marc Cooper
wel see - Ranjit Wassan
I'd love to see Mike be right - FF = labs.facebook.com - Keep the innovations happening here on FF, and see those innovations find their way to the Facebook feed. While that would necessarily mean that FF innovations would have an eye towards how those would work on Facebook, really, where's the harm in that? - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Given that the code of the two platforms is completely independent right now, I really can't imagine why Facebook would want to divert engineering effort to extending FF. - Ken Sheppardson
I just don't think FB can pull it off. They have so many 'brokens' in FB all the time - Lee Kent
Leo Good Day, Sir. I'm on here an hour and I like it, I'm a big Twitter fan. I think it's exciting personally, a lot to like and some cool features like direct ermail back to someone if you have email alerts. Facebook, seems to me, will only make it better. Cheers and thanks for all you do, I'm a fan. - Paul Roberts
Don't you think they will change it, Leo? I'm not as excited about this as you are. I like friendfeed but I'm not much of a facebook fan. I don't know if I can learn to love it. I guess I'll try. But I don't know if it's gonna happen. I think friendfeed as we know it is no more. - Lise

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

@scobleizer As far as I can see you have blocked not only the impersonators (who renamed themselves back the moment they found out you have a problem with this) but most of the folks who chatted there. - Based on real people

Maxatma: well, that's just too bad. I speak English. Sorry. People who don't speak English really don't have any business commenting on one of my items, except in rare cases. - Robert Scoble
Why you, Robert Scoble, don't block users from Spain or Italy? China or arabic countries? Those users that comments on non-English languages? - Never Impersonate You
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

@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? I'm kind of surprised - you create a community that large around yourself, yet when you see a new and unusual activity you just block it right away. - Based on real people

@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

Robert Scoble
I really, really, really love Bing. But I won't use it. Why do I love it? Competition for Google is a GOOD thing! Read why I won't use it:
I am using Google less and less and when I do it's from my iPhone's interface. - Robert Scoble
Or from a browser's interface. Google is "good enough" and it'll take more than "10% better" (which Bing is in places) to rewire my brain from Google to Bing. - Robert Scoble
There are some exceptions, though. Verticals. I could see using the video search. Or the travel features. They both are very nice. - Robert Scoble
And I will consider the "cash back" for shopping. But it's going to be tough to get me off of Google, how about you? - Robert Scoble
Agreed. Does not feel different enough. Google is safe for a few more years. - Edwin Khodabakchian
Edwin: yeah, and I don't like the "look" of it. I think that's because Google is burned into my brain. It's going to be difficult to get that unburned. On the other hand, I can see the hundreds of millions of people on Hotmail trying it, if it's integrated well. - Robert Scoble
How much will the 'well, it's the search engine that came on my computer' play into it. My sister still uses MSN search - Johnny
And it is definitely a credible effort on all the searches I've tried so far. That's a HUGE difference from older search technologies Microsoft put together. - Robert Scoble
Vaibhav: I know that having a credible competitor will keep Google innovative for a lot longer than if there were never any competition from anyone else. Now Google has some fire underneath them. No longer can Google's executives ignore the main search experience, which hasn't seen much innovation for a while. - Robert Scoble
Bing has done a great job in its UI as well as for some other features (excerpt on results, image, map, videos, etc.). I'm still waiting for comments on how good their indexing/ranking is. I hope it'll be better than before. - Dave Fuentes
For that I love Bing, big time. - Robert Scoble
I have the same feeling as for the Google and competition. There is no silver bullet, and there shouldn't be one BIG and SMART and whatever else company. Wish there would be email solution better than Google Apps. Wanted to pay for Apple's MobileMe but I think almost nobody is using their Web mail. And they still do not do custom email domains. So, Google is a winner for now... though, I beg for competitors :-) - Olexiy Prokhorenko
I'm just impressed the results are not the subpar crap from before. It's as good as Google down to even the minor computational stuff I've thrown at it. - Arawak
You can't use things like "comfort" and "what you're used to" as reasons, kids that aren't used to anything, and are better at picking up new things will see Bing for what it really is. Now what that is, I still have no idea, we'll see how it performs the next time I need to find something I guess. - Colin
Does anyone know when Mahalo 2 will be released? - Edwin Khodabakchian
I think Bing's novelty as a fresh face will wear off soon, and there's really nothing earth shattering about it as a search engine. I definitely think competition with Google is a great thing, because it's competition between two entities like Microsoft and Google that could really drive innovation (hopefully in OS building someday?). But I guess framing "Bing" as a competitor is a... more... - Victor Barrera
From the little that I've tried it out, it seems to be work fine; not better than Google, but mostly on par. But, like you said, after years of using Google exclusively, I won't be switching search engines unless something that is clearly better comes out. - Antoniu
There was a time when AltaVista was the king and I couldn't have imagined to use something else... I don't see why I couldn't make a switch again. - Jemm
Found the T&C document for the cash-back: "You can participate in the Live Search cashback service if you are 18 years or older, reside in the United States..." and there I stopped reading. - Edward Coffey
Love the "I think that's because Google is burned into my brain" quote. This is [scary] true - Edwin Khodabakchian
Cashback service? What was that Edward? They payed people to use Live Search? - Colin
Also, the pr0n biz might feel the heat from the video search it's got. Just sayin'. ;) - Arawak
Did I just see Matt Cutts (http://twitter.com/mattcutts) comparing results for Google with @bing? Hhhmmm that's interesting to follow. - Dave Fuentes
Google is more famous, and more common, so for now I will stick with google. Bing does have some interesting features though. They are worthy enough to look into, but google is still the one. At least for me it is. Bing will eventually evolve, and who knows, it could become the next big thing. - TheHenry
I think it is going to be baby steps. If MS get 2 to 3 % increase in market share that will be good enough for now. They have to keep improving though and yes Google needs competition. - Rohit Harshvardhan
Thanks Edward - Colin
hahah. Agreed @Diego - TheHenry
Simple vanity-searches on Bing for some of my friends and family who aren't famous but have active online presences actually put links to those presences in the first few results. Google prefers genealogy data of long-dead relatives, or the inactive, boiler-plate staff profile pages of university professors. - Edward Coffey
Its frustrating that because I'm in the UK, I can't test the service. Would like to put it through its paces. - Jim Connolly
That is pretty weak Tech News Blog, the whole point of the internet is that it doesn't have those boundaries. - Colin
Christopher and Edward: both search engines put my old blog up top. Really pisses me off, I wish they'd move it down. Google puts friendfeed up where it belongs, though, while Bing has my wife's friendfeed above mine. That's VERY weird. - Robert Scoble
Nice change of direction, i have tried it and the results have been good - Deepa
Andy: I can see it now - Thanks! On Friday, I just got a redirect page. - Jim Connolly
Over here, the bing.com domain is active, snow leopard and all, but the search results are just identical to Live Search (see query "hotel brussels" - http://www.scrnshots.com/users... ). None of the fancy stuff from the announcement video's is there. - Dirk Houbrechts
For me, the biggest issue is that '10% better' learning curve. Until a search engine is SIGNIFICANTLY better/different than Google, it's going to be hard to convince me to chance. - Cory OBrien
@stuart: I think it changes everyday. Soon snow leopard will be the thing of past (in more than one sense) ;) - Jemm
I see the same results that Live search gave( when I tried a week back) . I don't find the site "snippet" to be useful as well. - Krishnamoorthy
@Robert - what do you like bing to do that would make you swtich to it ? I understand core relevance improvements. but what else ? are there any potential directions that you think would make the user do a swtich... - Krishna Gade
@jemm It might be geographical as well. I don't see the Leopard, I was getting a Nebula and now a bunch of hot air baloons over Turkey. I'm located in The Bahamas. - Arawak
Krishna: real time search that's better than friendfeed would get me interested very quickly. Integrating real time feedback underneath business listings would be even better. Do those two and then you change the game. - Robert Scoble
Why would you need to rewire your brain? If I like a particular search engine's results, I'll just set my browser to use it as a default search. Do you actually go to the search engine's website and type your query into their search box? Gah. - Stuart Schram
Robert: Real time search for any search engine is at best difficult. Google as an example has server farms located all over the planet and the databases are not all updated simultaneously. Not all that long ago Google only updated once a month and it took a week. They do it a lot quicker and more frequently now but you can see the implications there for real time search. Plus the... more... - Gilbert Harding
Oh, and FWIW, if I have to choose between the two, I'd much rather a mapping website simply fail to work than get effed-up results from Google Maps that send us more than 3 miles deep into Deliverance country so that I get griefed for the next 15 minutes while everybody in the car wonders if we're going to be made to squeal like piggies. - Stuart Schram
I will hate the name until Armageddon - Bwana ☠
lmao @ Bwana :D - vijay
I liked quite a few features, but it just didn't feel quite as clean as Google, and it didn't produce results quite as good (for my handful of sample searches). The best thing to come out of this will probably that Google learns a few new tricks from Bing & does them better. - Gurpreet
Here's a question Robert, what makes this better than Yahoo search? - Bwana ☠
Completely agree. I see no reason to switch from Google but it's nice for Google to have someone to compete with. - John Munro
An incremental evolution of search isn't going to unseat Google. Google is more than "good enough", and even if Bing does turn out to be marginally better that's not enough to get a lot of switchers (and Google can easily clone Bing's features). MS needs a game changer and Bing doesn't seem to be it. And while I don't agree with Robert's enthusiasm for "real time" search, I do feel that... more... - Eric P
I like Bing pretty much but hey lets be honest its still half baked as with so many other MS products (unlike Windows Seven) - Abhishek Sharma
It's not a competitor for real if people don't use it, Robert... Be part of the solution, not part of the problem! =) - Andrew C (✔)
Scoble: I am really loving Bing as well. It with this Greasemonkey script (http://blog.mikedavidsmith.com/...) that allows you to add Twitter to the side panel (I really hated Twitter at the very top of the search) is very usable. The problem is that I go to Google for Gmail, Reader, and Calendar among other things. But I might try changing the base search engine of my Firefox awesome bar to Bing and see how it works (http://www.howinthetech.com/changin...). - Sweyn Venderbush
I don't think I'll be using 'Bing' as a verb any time soon. Google IS search. - Vince DeGeorge
I'm am finding it works as well as Google as a default provider in Chrome but I agree it will have to be a lot better than Google or have some unique extremely useful features before it will make any serious inroads. But it could creep up on Google search if Microsoft continues to press on all fronts (features, marketing, real time/speed of indexing) and if Google strays doing other stuff like Wave and neglects new search functionality. - Brian Sullivan
I switched to Bing about a week after it came out; I wanted to take it for a trial run to see if I could leave Google and Yahoo (I was using both of them.) Needless to say, I've stuck with Bing. I really like the picture homepage; I look forward to learning something new every day about some unique place or thing in the world. I also find its interface less straining on my eyes: it's a... more... - Wonkette

WOW! Realtime in FriendFeed for you, Robert, looks like a stock ticker. Thanks for sharing the video. - Alexander Grundner
Robert, my friendfeed doesn't load THAT fast.. ;) But I do love the real time feed! - Daynah
Real Time FTW! - TheHenry
Robert that video was awesome to watch. That setup is amazing. You get your audience involved, respond and recognize them. Changing the game each and every day. - Geoff Farinha from Nambu
I can only hear the audio - there is no video...what could be the problem? - Mahesh Patwardhan
Mahesh: do you have the latest Flash player. - Robert Scoble
No love for flash 10.0 r22 on linux. Black video. :( - Steve and 4 other people
BTW, the embed shows black with audio, and the link to qik.com shows the video but no audio. How odd. - Steve and 4 other people
How many eyeballs do you have? - Craig Brownell
Steve, the audio on the Qik site works fine for me. I do get black on the embedded version - guess I need a flash upgrade. - Laura Norvig
The video was blank for me here as well. Using Windows XP with Google Chrome [updated today]. Was able to watch on the Qik site. Great video Robert ;) - David Damore
I have the latest flash player... theres still no video here.. however I can watch it on the qik.com site. - Mahesh Patwardhan
No video in there. - Alex Sauceda
Also black video on the embed here. - EricaJoy
If you use the Qik link instead you won't see the blank video. I think the problem is on the FF side. - Alexander Grundner
I'm torn between thinking - "that is awesome" and "what's the point?". For Scoble it makes sense as his job depends on keeping up with all this and commentating on it. For the rest of us, not so sure this realtime river of news is really where the future is taking us. - Barak B
Love this video. You gave me an idea on utilizing feeds on a vertical screen - Thomas Chai
Apparently, Scoble either wastes his time watching 3 friendfeed columns instead of writing a new book or revising Naked Conversations (in real time) OR he just showed us how the job looks like for some community managers. - Michael Jung

...Scoble, i am as realtime nuts as u with 65 soc news monitors therefore it irritates me that the new friendfeed doesn't allow realtime button-refresh twitter updates into the feed - or i was too stupid to find the icons. it also s*ks that u cant add all u old icons to make automatic refreshes in case there is some glitch. anyone else can help out in case scoble is busy ? - ewing2001akaNicomedy2010
I read somewhere that Scoble singe-handedly save (or something to that effect) FF. Now I can see how. Thanks for sharing this. Btw, I also got black screen here, but fine video in Qik, using OSX/Firefox. - waraney rawung

Darth Scoble is more machine than man now. - Rolf Schewe

Proves once again how sorely track (realtime search alerts) is lacking. The setup as it is now is better divided between right and left eye serving corresponding brain hemispheres. The streams then should be tweaked in accordance with brain hemisphere functional/cognitive asymmetry; the result would be hyper-realtime web/personality blend leading to eventual zombiefication and madness :-) - Mindaugas Dagys
That's amazing, that's the reason why you're the best at what you do. Thank you for sharing that video, Robert. - Diego Espinoza V.
Can someone please tell us how to setup the Twitter stream like Robert has?? I want to set that up sooo bad. - Jeff
Looks like Nambu on the Mac doesn't it?? - Kim Flintoff from twhirl
Jeff: You turn an Apple monitor sideways. YOu open up three different Safari or other browser windows. You stretch those windows to look like my screen. You point them at various Tweet streams. - Robert Scoble

It's a real issue with FriendFeed: they consume from all sorts of sources, but can't turn it into threaded content unless it came from them. - Joel Bennett
why send your stuff to frienfeed if you're not going to be on friendfeed to reply to comments made on the stuff you send there? doesn't make sense allen - now i'll go read more than the first few paragraphs - Chris Heath
Allen: you do have a point about the duplication (but that's up to the user - ff should make it easier to detect and fix) - Chris Heath
Also, the comments on blogs being pulled into ff as separate entries (disqus/backtype/etc) is something that should be better - i still stand by my first comment, and it's tied to my second comment. If you're going to use a service to aggregate content (friendfeed) why would you not be there to see what happens to that aggregated content. It's the users responsibility to hold up their end of the social contract. If you don't participate your value diminishes because you're not being social. - Chris Heath
It's true that this is a real issue, but I don't have a solution. The best I can say is that each FriendFeed is user is responsible for making his stream intelligible. In other words, the fact that aggregation occurs automatically does not absolve the user of administrative responsibility. As for the given example, if Twitter itself doesn't support proper message threading, I don't think it's reasonable to expect to FriendFeed to thread imported Tweets. Tell Twitter to clean up their own mess. - LANjackal
Well, I think it's the user's responsibility to not have dupes like that. There are so many work arounds to not having dupes, that laziness is the only reason I can come up with for them being there. - Anika
Pro-active responsibility could well be assisted by passive machine checking for duplicates of the same content from multiple sources, and mini-aggregating them within a feed. So a single item would appear just once and end up being cumulatively credited with "1 hour ago from Twitter, Facebook, Google Reader and 4 other services" (or a derivative thereof). - ianf ⌘
@ianf: as I said, Twitter itself doesn't support proper threading. Don't ask FF to fix that. Ask Twitter. Maybe this is one of those things that will make people realize how fundamentally weak Twitter's functionality is. In any case, there's also a hole in the original article: you CAN reply to tweets from FF and have them show up on Twitter - it's an option in FF itself. Clearly Allen... more... - LANjackal
I wasn't talking about Twitter actually. I happen to consider FF as something above mere aggregator and dumping ground for Tweets. I was talking about what FF ought to do about duplicate postings as such. An article appears on the web, and suddenly dozens of people that happen be in the same group(s) as myself post the same so-so descriptive headline+link to their own, and to our... more... - ianf ⌘
What we will need is a filter that filters and groups postings based on the content regardless of the source, a la how Yahoo pipes works, to filter, group, streamline/reorder./sort incoming status updates/posts or thats what I believe. - TrafficBug
@Chris' "comments on blogs being pulled into ff as separate entries " <http://tinyurl.com/ph73nt> - if FF can not cope with aggregating these back into already existing threads, then the least it could do would be to let us associate one post of ours to another, in effect turn a post into a FF-comment with selectable place in hierarchy after the fact. This could be extended to turning a post into last comment in a thread posted/owned by another ffuser. - ianf ⌘
@TrafficBug "filter that filters and groups postings based on [1] the content regardless of [2] the source" - yes to the latter, but as for [^1], not so much the content, as the base target url it carries (base being the part between "http://www." and any possible trailing slash, or question mark - this would allow "mini-aggregation" of items pointing to both main and any "?pagewanted=all" or "?print=yes&random=" etc. variant urls). - ianf ⌘
@ianf: OK, I see what you're saying. Yeah generally speaking that's a good idea. - LANjackal
btw fred wilson replied and blames friendfeed for poor disqus implementation - Allen Stern
Content duping can be solved if FriendFeed would do the distributing of content. Jason Calacanis, in that example must be forwarding content from within those other services to Twitter instead of using FriendFeed's post to Twitter function. If you do it from within FF, it knows if the post is a dupe or not since it forwarded it originally. I had the problem and fixed it myself. I just hope FF adds that post forwarding function for Facebook and other services as well. This is a content management issue. - Rolf Schewe

@K_Seas As I screamed at the tv, my wife hollered from the bedroom: "NERD!"
Louis Gray
A quick difference between Twitter's architecture and that of FriendFeed pointed out by @biz's post from today...
Biz writes, "Every time someone wrote a reply Twitter had to check and see what each of their followers' reply setting was and then manifest that tweet accordingly in their timeline—this was the most expensive work the database was doing and it was causing other features to degrade." - Louis Gray
But on FriendFeed, every time you see an update, FriendFeed checks if you subscribe to someone, and if you have hidden any service, or even any specific blog from any service. - Louis Gray
FriendFeed knows when you post an update who can see it and who can't see it, based on who is following, and what services they have opted into or out of. And when you think of how many different ways the database has to be set, the unlimited power is very impressive. - Louis Gray
FriendFeed checks by list, by service, by name of service, and can even check by if something is liked or not, how many times, has comments, and how many, and who from, if you use the search. There is a ton of data behind the data. - Louis Gray
Math is hard </barbie>. Sorry, but this seems like a serious cop out to me. If FF can design the DB to function as quickly as it does with as many selection parameters, surely Twitter could do the same (if, that is, they have the proper backend platform to do so, and it doesn't look like they do). - FFing Enigma
And yet, FriendFeed continues to add features and have near-flawless uptime without slowness. - Louis Gray
I agree...it is a major copout. We have been using that technique in online chat systems since the early 1980's. It is not difficult and does not take as much power as @biz seems to be implying. - Semipro
I am serious. They had downtime last week, and that was a blip. And what slowness, Glen? (Referring to FriendFeed) - Louis Gray
Twitter's was. Not FriendFeed's. - Louis Gray
My comments should have run together. Tina helpfully interrupted. :) - Louis Gray
Yeah, the "And yet, they continue..." sorta started down the road to Ambiguity. - Ken Sheppardson
(Edited for clarity) and Glen, look forward to that happening. - Louis Gray
@ in the middle must be a lot less frequent than @ at the beginning thus saving processing power - Matsis
But a beginning @ is index 0, there's no seek time compared to an any position @. - Micah
also I believe a fair comparison would be twitter removing the @ replies to all (lame) with FF removing FoaF entries from lists other than the home feed. And twitter search is real time - that's probably eating up processing power - Matsis
Good point re: Friend of a Friend, Matsis. FriendFeed already has to check if you have it enabled or not, and then if you have it enabled for a specific friend or not, and then, execute. I neglected to mention that. - Louis Gray
Leather: When the "see all @ replies" was an option, Twitter had to decide how to handle @ replies (whether to propagate the tweet to you or to hide it, depending on your setting), which is expensive to the database. So, either they make everybody see all @ replies (which changes the setting of 98% of the users), or they sacrifice the 2% - Andre P. Siregar
Micah I think twitter's point was that they didn't want to go check the setting (too much work for them) so they removed it. We b*itched and moaned so they gave back something less than what was. Or in other words, if the feature is available, and Oprah has a back and forth with aplusk (say replies 10-15 times), twitter dies. Also what Andre said :) - Matsis
This is a good lesson for all comp sci students. The @-reply was not a feature Twitter had when they first launched. It's sort of a hack from the community that later got incorporated. But the architecture didn't anticipate this feature. And now it's hard to change the foundation when the house has been built - Andre P. Siregar
Andre, I also think it's fair to say (many have stated this many times) that the whole of twitter's original architecture wasn't built with the anticipation of its current use. - Micah
I think it all has to do with the schema-less design on top of MySQL FriendFeed is using. They're simply making smarter choices ahead of time, rather than reactive choices. - Jesse Stay
So, by the presumed logic, no one's going to a see any new features that involves a follower dependent setting regarding anything tweet in stream. Well, ok then. - Micah
Jesse, I have no doubt Friendfeed made smarter design decisions. When Twitter started the whole micro-blogging thing nobody really knew back then how it was going to grow and be used (now Twitter is much more than just about "I'm having lunch"). So when Friendfeed started, I'm sure they took some lessons learned from Twitter and others - Andre P. Siregar
Micah, yes regarding Twitter's original architecture. IIRC, Digg went through the same re-architecting exercise a few years back when their users started to skyrocket. - Andre P. Siregar
It's typical to have to re-architect a system once you realize how much the userbase is skyrocketing. Ideally you've constructed it in such a way so that you can rip out modular pieces and replace them as necessary. It seems to me that the whole of Twitter's backend is a much more serially constructed system, which is why they have to have complete system outages still now at three... more... - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Leather, here is what Bret talked about for their MySQL implementation: http://bret.appspot.com/entry... - Louis Gray
And though I wasn't on Twitter to see it, Robert suggests that they've been seeing these problems since he had about 1500 followers. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Rob: that's absolutely true. Twitter was crashing even back in 2006. The architecture they chose was always horrid. It's getting better, actually, but still is having sizeable problems. Friendfeed has been down twice, once for an hour, and once for more than an hour because of a power failure that took down the entire data center. (At least that I remember). Twitter seems like it was down every day in 2008 and even this week has been down more than friendfeed has ever been down. - Robert Scoble
Rick, you can compare them based on the time of their lifespan though, and FriendFeed is doing much, much better. See the interview Scoble and I did with them last year when they had a very similar user-base to FriendFeed's. - Jesse Stay
Rick: absolutely NOT true. Friendfeed today has MUCH higher traffic than Twitter did two years ago. - Robert Scoble
It is easy to look at the total user base and make excuses for Twitter, but what I'm talking about is the fact that FriendFeed is accomplishing much more complex tasks, and not missing a beat. Even when they are 10 times bigger than they are today, I expect they will scale smoothly, because of their talent and their track record. - Louis Gray
Leather: I'm assuming the difference is with the amount of WRITE operation in the database (which is much more expensive than parsing) - Andre P. Siregar
I would love to read how friendfeed has architected itself to avoid the problems twitter is having. - ian kennedy
Traffic may be one thing, but I would venture to guess the activity in the database is higher in FF than in Twitter for the same number of users - Andre P. Siregar
ian: on friendfeed there is more metadata to study and filter with. I can say "show me all items that mention Obama" on both services, but only on friendfeed can I also say "and display only those items that have a like or more." That is how friendfeed can remove a major amount of spam (and I use it all the time). Spam doesn't get likes. Another way? - Robert Scoble
On friendfeed I can delete any comment underneath one of my items. So I can help keep my corner of friendfeed clean. And if I see any underneath, say, your items, I can let you know about it. But what about on Twitter? We can't do shit about spam except report it and hope that @biz or someone gets to it. - Robert Scoble
Leather: Twitter is more than three years old. Friendfeed is just about 1.5 years old. You aren't factoring that in. Go and compare the two services all along at the same age. I don't compare my 1.5 year old to a three year old, and neither should you. That's a HUGE mistake you are making. - Robert Scoble
When Twitter was 1.5 years old it had fewer users than friendfeed and was FAR LESS COMPLEX yet it was going down about 100 times more often than friendfeed is today. Twitter's architecture was NEVER thought out very well and we're still seeing the artifacts of that. - Robert Scoble
Leather: I'm comparing friendfeed today to where Twitter was 1.5 years ago. - Robert Scoble
Leather: true, but friendfeed is a LOT more complex than Twitter ever was and it also has more users than Twitter did when Twitter was 1.5 years old. - Robert Scoble
Leather: then what are you arguing with me about? Heheh. - Robert Scoble
Scoble, yes the filtering on advanced searches is impressive (it even supports simple exclusions). I am impressed that they can keep it all running with every page updating in*real*time. Is each page an open session? - ian kennedy
ian: I believe it is. Leather: go to compete.com or any traffic site and compare. But adjust the dates. - Robert Scoble
Leather: keep in mind I've been on Twitter 907 days and I'm not going to do your homework for you. :-) - Robert Scoble
Louis, you're absolutely correct about FF accomplishing much more complex tasks much more effortlessly. Overall the leaders of this team are more effective. We had a saying back when I was consulting ISP startups "The network IS the business plan" In an online business that depends entirely on its systems for potential revenues, the architecture of the network becomes a model for the... more... - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Leather: believe me, Twitter didn't grow that fast until the last year. The first two years Twitter grew slower than friendfeed did and had a TON more problems (and was even less complex). - Robert Scoble
Leather: 900 != 700. Heheh. That's a huge number of days in this world. And, anyway, both traffic and complexity are higher on friendfeed and amount of time down is MUCH lower here. So, by either metric friendfeed is winning HUGE. - Robert Scoble
Robert, here's the screen capture from Compete.com: http://twitpic.com/57bgl Y'all seem to be forgetting about non-Twitter-account web traffic. FF is flat; Twitter skyrockets. And yes, FF is "younger" but is built on top of Twitter so it did not start from the same "zero" point -- nor does it have as many API calls -- nor is it as accessible off-the-laptop (iPhones excepted). - Kathy E Gill
Kathy: you have NOT shifted the graph to show equivilent times. At 4/2009 Friendfeed is STILL far younger than Twitter was at 4/2008. Shift the graphs and come back. Also, at 1.5 years into its life Twitter didn't have that many apps either and Twitter's API is far more simplistic than friendfeed's is. Twitter didn't take off until after it was two years old. Friendfeed is already growing faster. And who cares what it is built on top of? Twitter was built on top of blogs and we don't hold that against it. - Robert Scoble
Kathy: Benjamin Golub of FF wrote fftogo.com. FriendFeed on any phone. - Johnny
Twitter started March 21, 2006. Friendfeed started October 1, 2007. You must shift the charts to compare apples to apples. - Robert Scoble
I just don't understand why it's so hard to compare apples to apples. If you want to compare the two companies, you have to compare them at similar stages in their lifecycles. it's really simple. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Rob: because our tools make it hard to do the comparison. But I was there and saw how Twitter grew. Twitter was crashing before it even got to the famous SXSW and I only had something like 1000 followers then (and that was in March of 2007). - Robert Scoble
I use fftogo almost every day. and I use the IM on the other days (twitter isn't really even sophisticated enough to keep their IM service running) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Not to mention email - Johnny
I don't know about that Robert. We can grok how to compare money from today to money in 1920. We should be able to adjust stats about companies in our brains. We don't compare the revenues of a 3yo company to the revenues of a 30yo company, right (unless the 3yo is performing Outrageously). I haven't heard a single person disagree with what you've said about "the old days" of twitter either. So I can only assume that it must be true. These problems don't sneak up on a company. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Rob: Twitter's management will admit they've always had technical problems. Remember, their architect was fired (Blair) and @ev admitted that it was a test project that they never expected to get so big. - Robert Scoble
Ok, well the first step to getting well is admitting you have a problem, right? Never expecting a thing to get so big is a lack of vision, and not a very good quality for a management team IMO. Since they never expected it, and now that it is, they should be stepping aside as they are certainly no longer qualified to lead it. And THAT is the true sign of success of management teams.... more... - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Choose Success, not failure. But, it's interesting to note that "fail whale" and twitter are synonymous. Fail is practically in the name. And that needs to be corrected. It affects team spirit and morale, and causes it to become a vicious cycle. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Rob: you have to go back in @ev's history, though. Remember when he started Pyra? They made Blogger. Remember how often it was down? A lot, just like Twitter. How slow it was? Very. How much spam it had? A lot, just like Twitter. Yet it made Ev a lot of money, just like Twitter will. So, since he's been down this path before, why not repeat? It actually doesn't make sense to over... more... - Robert Scoble
And that's where I come back to the lack of vision. If you "aren't sure" then you don't have the vision. You're right that it doesn't make sense to over engineer something if you have doubts, but if you have doubts, why jack with it? But in some sense it does make sense to over engineer things, because in a pinch you can often sell the company for the technology that's running it to someone who has a different vision for it, someone who knows what to do with what you've built. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
lots of testosterone on this thread, did we at least all agree that twitter's "organic architecture" sucks now just like it did from inception & friendfeeds "designed architecture" should scale nicely just like it has from inception? - mike "glemak" dunn
FriendFeed enthusiasts in Scoble's network agree that it's better than Twitter! Film at 11. - Christian Crumlish

@TweetStack iPhone app is great! Go import your TweetDeck stacks right into your iPhone! wooo hooo! - http://www.b1te.com/tweetst...
@TweetStack iPhone app is great!  Go import your TweetDeck stacks right into your iPhone! wooo hooo!
Has anyone tried this yet? - Amani
Tweetie should just release this in their app and it would be win. - Andrew Trinh
yes, i love it!! the import process worked flawlessly!! nice app! wooooo hoooo! - Susan Beebe
tweetie supports multiple accounts, i don't think Tweetstack does - bummer - Susan Beebe
Andrew - bingo! I wish!! - Susan Beebe
correction! Tweetstack DOES support MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS :) - Susan Beebe
Just configured my 3 twitter accounts on TweetStack iPhone app - bye bye tweetie! - Susan Beebe
I like the idea but hate bubbles, can the UI be changed to a more space efficient look kinds like TwitterFon? Will buy it if I can. - Kevin Muncie
Kevin - Yea, I am not liking the bubbles either - they aren't efficient use of iPhone screen space. I have not used twitterfon yet. I like the tweetie interface much better. I am not seeing anyway to modify the UI settings - Susan Beebe
Thanks Susan, that's ashame. I wonder why any developer would choose the bubbles. Not going to spend the money now. - Kevin Muncie
I just wrote a review for the app and mentioned the need to offer users a UI choice (bubbles / no bubbles) - Susan Beebe
I am not able to get the TweetDeck import working for TweetStack. I am also encountering crashes with TweetStack. The UI needs some improvements also. I cannot figure out how to bring up the Stack preference pane if there are tweets in the Stack. - Vinko
Vinko did you follow the instructions here? --> http://www.b1te.com/tweetst... - Susan Beebe
has anyone seen anything about the tweetie osx app? if that has groups, maybe there is something similar in the works. - Frankie Warren
Look around, don't forget about Nambu. tweetdeck isn't the only player out there. - Richard A.
TweetStack supports multiple accounts which gives it a huge advantage. - Jaica Kinsman
Hi - sorry to not reply earlier! I'm the dev for TweetStack. We will be addressing the bubbles/space saving tweet view issue in release V1.1 with a whole host of other features - see http://www.b1te.com/tweetst... for more info. - Matt Brooke-Smith
fyi TweetStack will also integrate with TweetFollow soon - noticed you commented on TweetFollow earlier in your stream. - Matt Brooke-Smith
groups is obviously a welcome development but the UI for the app as a whole needs a lot of refinement. - Jamie
Its a good app it needs more refinement to compete with the likes of tweetie , etc.. - Isaac Zahavi
Matt - Hello! Glad you found FriendFeed :) TweetStack is great - make the UI look like Tweetie's and you're my BFF! I like the idea of integrating it with TweetFollow... excellent idea. I was surprised when I saw 2 apps and thought to myself - why didn't they just add the "follow" feature to TweetStack? keep us posted here on this thread... thanks! You may want to consider creating a "Feed" (formerly known as a "room") for TweetStack so folks can subscribe to it and get updates on your product dev. - Susan Beebe
I tried to send a tweet this morning with TweetStack and it took over a minute - had to cancel it... grrrr - Susan Beebe
Susan, yes, I followed TweetStack's instructions. I was finally able to get it to work by totally removing TweetStack, my Twitter accounts and redoing everything. I am still encountering crashes though. - Vinko
Vinko - perhaps sending a tweet to @TweetStack may get you some support based on your feedback - Susan Beebe
Yes, I had been working with them. They say that 1.0.2 may resolve my issues. Although the the UI issues, particularly the way to bring up the Stack settings pane when a stack contains more than a full page of tweets. The double clicking to bring up the Stack settings is a bit hit and miss. - Vinko
Susan - sorry to hear you had a problem sending - sometimes the Twitter API connects, then takes ages to respond. Perhaps we should lower our timeout value. - Matt Brooke-Smith
TweetDeck import should run fine if you run it *before* you install the app. We are working on a method to ensure it works after you have downloaded, installed and run. Look out for V1.02. Ill let you know when we have submitted to Apple. - Matt Brooke-Smith
Susan - thanks for the suggestion regarding a Feed/Room. Ill look into it! Always keen to keep people involved. - Matt Brooke-Smith
I just recommended this to @KristieWells today -- she was very happy to learn of TweetStack ... rock on! - Susan Beebe
The 17 year-old founder of StalkDaily has claimed responsibility for today's Twitter exploit: http://www.bnonews.com/news...
This kid really doesn't realize he's going to jail, does he? - Eric Florenzano
Like this guy (3 years in jail for the MySpace worm) http://namb.la/popular/ - Eric Florenzano
Sadly Eric, I think he has no clue. Poor kid. At 17, he's a few years younger than Paris Hilton when she was in a sex video. - Cait
Twitter should hire him ... that's all I'm saying. - Brandon
What will they pay him with? Followers? - Rahsheen
No, they will pay him cold hard cash for his insight into how he reverse-engineers Twitter. -- So they can help prevent such things from happening again. - Brandon
Perhaps....after he gets out of jail.... - Bora Zivkovic
For some reason, I'm not understanding how this was all that slick of a trick. He exploited a gaping hole. "Hrm, I wonder what happens if I put random crap in my bio....OOOOH! Looky Here! Looky Here!" - Rahsheen
He won't go to jail, he'll get press, he'll start consulting Twitter and other services. - Brandon
Does that mean he gets to collect $200? - Jim Norris
He should go to jail: he totally failed at crashing twitter - sofarsoShawn
And THAT is exactly why I do NOT like teenagers! I am so glad I don't have them anymore. I think they all need supervision because they have no real Life experience AND they all have poor impulse control! I agree with the comment thread...they have no clue! Do not feel sorry for the 17 year old. Let him learn that it is not amusing to tinker with our lives. - Laurel LaFlamme
Actually, this guy reminds me of another teenage script kiddy we had during the Victorian bushfires who hijacked the #bushfires feed to a private group this s.k. took credit for originating/inventing. I'm not particularly wanting to reward such twit kids for doing some really dumb things. The kid could have pointed out security flaws to Twitter without all that stuff today. - George Hall (Australia)
A great idea to get twitter off their ass, bad follow through. Instead of possibly getting a college education, this kid will get barred from computers till he's 25 or so, and come out even more pissed off at the world. - rob
It would also seem this kid has a history of this type of actions with website applications. http://stickydrama.com/2009... http://stickydrama.com/wp-cont... - rob
While the kid is completely responsible for exploiting the hole, no different than someone breaking and entering by walking through an unlocked door to your home, the question arises as to why Twitter's door wasn't locked in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods on the planet — the Internet. How many decades will it take before programmers learn to fully validate all user input? We're at over 2 decades and counting already. - Tom Sheppard
well, the difference is the malicious intent and use of the computer to effect a greater population. B&E usually is just one home, or a string of home, not hundreds of thousands of people, and the machines they touch, which numbers more than the humans i"m sure. Twitter should have tested their site better. I never saw the hacker tested badge on their site like I see on shopping sites... more... - rob from twhirl
Wake up Brandon-anyone who hires a vandal like this is as irresponsible as he is. Twitter SHOULDN'T need a spotty oik to point out their security flaws, anyway (whole different discussion!). He needs to spend some time behind bars, and a message sent to other kids. If he had spotted the flaw and disclosed it to Twitter and worked with them to plug it, THEN I would advocate hiring him. - Bob Walder
Bob, that is a brilliantly stated point. The different between a criminal and a brilliant mind is how they view opportunity. - Peggy Dolane

FriendFeed in Nambu on my iPhone
it's not too bad eh? - Zee.
The funny thing is that this post is still "sending..." on my iPhone :) (I think maybe my network is having problems) - Paul Buchheit
cool interface :) gonna go get it!! - Susan Beebe
I've tried Nambu, but I uninstalled it after my first attempt. Its UI display so little information, lots of click is driving me mad. - pastas9
I like it so far - Ryan Stanley from Nambu
I have FriendFeed via Nambu on my iPhone too...but since the beta, it tends to crash a bit after roughly ten minutes of use. Perhaps the Nambu crew (and motherfeed developers) need to get an update soon that solves this. Nambu is very good when it's working, even for identi.ca. - George Hall (Australia)
Yea, Its way too slow. And if you config. more than two Accounts then the Interface gets busy.. See, the new Yahoo!, Inquisitor App in AppStore.. They are way too fast and responsive.. - Mohammad Abdurraafay
Yahoo!, Inquisitor??? Is that one or two apps? Haven't heard of Inquisitor. - George Hall (Australia)
not bad... - lemuel
Inquisitor is nice, but it appears to be a search app, not a Friendfeed app. - Paul Buchheit from BuddyFeed
Nambu iPhone client isn't bad so far and might be close to good but I am hoping for great - lemuel

Nambu - Webmonkey (HOT Twitter client, tons of people are talking about it, wonder how it competes with new Seesmic Desktop?) - http://www.webmonkey.com/blog...
Nambu - Webmonkey (HOT Twitter client, tons of people are talking about it, wonder how it competes with new Seesmic Desktop?)
Nambu is not written in AIR and thus it automatically wins. - Akiva
we need a ff client~ - kang
yeah i wrote a post about it titled "Last night I cheated on Tweetdeck and I liked it." http://thenextweb.com/2009... ...most people seem to love it, but it's not without bugs...it is a preview release after all - Zee.
Looks pretty amazing, but with no Windows support they are leaving a big segment of users on the table. It amazes me that people still only write to one platform. - Tim
I was all excited until I saw it was for Mac. Still, anything that's not written in AIR gets my vote! - Michael McKean
I was mildly excited by Nambu, but I'm STOKED to hear that Loren Brichter (@atebits) is working on a desktop (Mac) version of Tweetie, and that its release is "imminent" - http://blog.atebits.com/2009... . THAT is the Twitter client I'm looking forward to. I've long wished for a desktop Twitter app that could do everything Tweetie can, and be as well designed. I've got high hopes for Tweetie for Mac. - Josh Bancroft
*None* of these guys are targeting businesses. They all suck. Check out CoTweet when you get a chance (and let me know if you want an invite, Robert). - Jesse Stay
Nambu has been great. It's about time another client that supports groups came out. I've been eager to drop tweetdeck (it got up to using 1.5gb of memory the other day.) Seesmic Desktop isn't anything special but at least it added group support as well. If you are running OSX give Nambu a try. - Jeffrey Vanneste
dang, no windows. sheesh. - Peggy Dolane
I used it until last week when it somehow managed to call the FriendFeed API so many times that they blocked my IP address. Of course the really screwed up thing is that the FriendFeed functionality is not even enabled in Nambu. So what the hell gives with that? It took me 5 days to get my access restored thanks to Ana Yang at FriendFeed - she's the one who told me that Nambu overused my FF API limit. So hell yeah... I uninstalled it. - Ankush Narula
I'm scared to look ;-) Don't want to like it and then face starting from scratch to recreate the groups on my Tweetdeck for hundreds of followers. - Mark Traphagen
Jesse, I use Twitter (sometimes) for business, and i'm happy with the current clients. What would a "business-targeted" client do? Honest question. - Josh Bancroft
Josh, see my review of it here: http://www.louisgray.com/live... - Jesse Stay
Jesse - Ah. To me, CRM is the wrong approach to such a personal medium. @marshallk summed up my thoughts on it pretty well in the last few paragraphs of his post on how @Comcast uses Twitter: http://bit.ly/Cy9sT - Josh Bancroft
A little buggy but a very nice native client for Mac - sasamat

Mike Fruchter
I need recommendations for Wiki software. Self hosted and easy to use.
I know about MediaWiki already. - Mike Fruchter
You should get out and find a good fit at http://www.wikimatrix.org/. That said, I've run PmWiki and Screwturn and found them both pretty straightforward. How many users do you have? Are you looking to have multiple namespaces within your wiki? - Daniel J. Pritchett
Disclaimer: I have an MS in CS, so my concept of "easy" or "fun" might be unrealistic. - Daniel J. Pritchett
Ushahidi uses DokuWiki. I'm not too fond of it though. - Meryn Stol
Oooh! Here's your question asked and answered on StackOverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questio... Also click through on the "wiki" tag to see related articles on SO. http://stackoverflow.com/questio... - Daniel J. Pritchett
WordPress Wiki Plugin -> http://wordpress.org/extend... - andy brudtkuhl
@Daniel, thanks. The amount of users will be a 3-4 max. You lost me at multiple namespaces . I will check out the links you provided. - Mike Fruchter
Andy, thanks. The Wiki will be independent from WP. It's for the company I work for. - Mike Fruchter
Multiple namespaces would be like "MainPage::MarketingDepartment" versus "MainPage::SupportDepartment". In other words, as a wiki grows you could have multiple discrete sections of the wiki that contain pages related to a single project. Those projects might want to have the same basic page names in effect, and namespaces allow you to do that. 3-4 people can work around it without much trouble. - Daniel J. Pritchett
Wikis are great *because* of the lack of official structure. Develop your own internal wiki usage conventions and people will do just fine - as long as they can search. - Daniel J. Pritchett
I was pondering on using Drupal as an alternative. Any downside to this? I know its primarily a CMS system. - Mike Fruchter
Great recommandations on stackoverflow. Thanks, Daniel - Mike Fruchter
I strongly recommend you get some advanced login capabilities, e.g. linking up with a windows domain or using Facebook Connect or something. Remove as many barriers to contribution as possible. Layman's version: If people have to log in, they won't bother. - Daniel J. Pritchett
I have not used Drupal or any other CMS as a wiki... I'm not even sure how you would do that. Sure you can create posts/objects and link them to one another, but that doesn't feel like a wiki to me. The #1 thing that makes a wiki is the fact that I can type [[Name of a new page]] and that becomes a clickable link to said new page. - Daniel J. Pritchett
Using Drupal as a wiki is possible: there are installation profiles that'll set up and configure everything for you. That said, it's not dedicated wiki software, and it feels like shoehorning a wiki experience into Drupal's user experience. Edit: looks like there's no Wiki installation profile for d6, which stinks. - Mark Trapp
@Michael - I've setup WP instances with this plugin for wiki only purposes.. .just like you are thinking for drupal - andy brudtkuhl
I'd recommend Deki Wiki by Mindtouch. There's an open source version that installs under Apache or as a virtual machine. Editing and organizing information is extremely easy, and rivals some blogs. Includes hooks into multimedia, video sites, etc. - Glenn Batuyong
Mike, if you want to use Drupal, another way to go might be the Book module: since you can customize permissions all over the place with Drupal, the Book module might provide a reasonable alternative to the wiki experience: http://drupal.org/handboo... - Mark Trapp
If Deki Wiki is not too hard to install (no experience), I'd surely try that out. It's also used by Mozilla. (interview: http://www.ddj.com/web-dev... ) - Meryn Stol
I will always suggest Zoho: http://wiki.zoho.com/login... - Anika
I would've suggested Zoho as well, but Mike insists on self-hosting. The big reason I like Zoho is not its UI (kinda irritates me) but the fact that it accepts Google and Yahoo! logins. No new account required! - Daniel J. Pritchett
For installation and testing purposes, be sure you try JumpBox-style virtual installs of these wikis. It will save you a lot of time for testing different systems you might end up discarding. Here's one for MindTouch Deki: http://www.jumpbox.com/app... You can run it using the free VMWare Player. - Daniel J. Pritchett
MoinMoin is my favorite (featureful, community, Python, themed), but has a little admin setup upfront cost. TiddlyWiki is the simplest/fastest/lightest I've used and is all-in-one no admin, plus mobile. Being a single HTML/Javascript file, you can even put it under VCS. - Micah Elliott
Thanks for the feedback everyone! - Mike Fruchter
SocialText has a pretty good self-hosted solution. And they're Perl so even more bonus points. - Jesse Stay
Mike: If you know PHP, be sure to take at least 10 minutes to look at PmWiki. Doesn't get any easier. I've installed/managed MediaWiki, TWiki, DekiWiki, a .Net engine called Flexwiki... and no matter how easy *any* wiki claims to be, none of them really seem to deliver on the promise of being... well... frictionless. They all have a learning curve, idioms, etc. My recommendation would be to just pick your poison, chose something that's well-supported and popular built in a language you know, and dive in. - Ken Sheppardson
Great thread! Ounce for ounce, high level of nutrition. Thanks, all. If I recall correctly, PmWiki was used by identi.ca (before it moved to Trac) as a bug tracker, and was so quick and simple I submitted a bug report that I otherwise would not have bothered with had I faced more complicated software. - Micah
One very good commercial (but free for non profit) wiki is Confluence from Atlassian. To my knowledge it is the only wiki that natively supports distinct spaces. Although it is a good wiki, it is not the silver bullet that addresses all our community needs. - Olivier Biot
Regarding Drupal and wiki support, there are possibilities to implement a "wiki page" content type for which you can enforce unique page titles with the "unique field" module (http://drupal.org/project...). Or get inspiration from resources like http://cwgordon.com/how-to-... - Olivier Biot
I went thru this exercise recently, used wikimatrix for research - was going to self host and tried a few but then opted for hosted instead -http://glemak.pbwiki.com - the wiki space is very full and socialtext is still the best enterprise at scale option though for 3-4 users it'd be overkill - mike "glemak" dunn
Doing a major ERP implementation and using Confluence for the documentation of the design during blueprinting. Team of 50 using it. Works well, but like any wiki, content is inconsistent at times and requires editing. We won't use it long term. Also using Sharepoint within our corporate portal. Would NOT recommend it.. - Dave Ploch
For easy and hosted and good integration with videos, online presentations, etc, try Google Sites (aka JotSpot) http://sites.google.com - Scott McMullan
@Dave - Sharepoint is great if it's the only wiki your IT department will let you install. I agree that it's rarely a first choice for any particular project though. - Daniel J. Pritchett
FOSWiki (was TWiki) might be interesting. - Tyson Key
actually socialtext and sharepoint work well together - http://www.socialtext.com/product... - mike "glemak" dunn
Thanks for that link Mike Dunn! I just shared it with a blog commenter who was looking for e2.0 collaboration addins for sharepoint: http://www.sharingatwork.com/2009... - Daniel J. Pritchett
We have done multiple wiki projects in our agency. The best enterprise wikis are Foswiki for open source wikis and Confluence for commercial high-end-solutions. MediaWiki is only for public wikis similar to Wikipedia best of breed. - Martin Seibert
just had some good experience starting to use pmwiki http://www.jeroendemiranda.com/WordPre... for hosting some documentation on my blogs - out of the box installation on http://www.bluehost.com - Jeroen De Miranda
