FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more - http://blog.friendfeed.com/2009...
FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more
"Today we are launching version 2 of the FriendFeed API for beta testing. We focused on making the API simpler to use, and we added number of compelling new features." Documentation: http://friendfeed.com/api... - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
OAuth? Sweet. Thanks a lot for all the new good stuff in the API: can't wait to use it. - Mark Trapp
very nice. great work! - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
Yet another reason to like Bret. :-) - Jesse Stay
Great!!! - YungSang from FriendFoo
nice! - Daniel Rust
good job guys, I bet devs are jumping high right now - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Sweet, congrats! - Ivan Zuzak
nice, good to see OAuth support, this will enable a larger 3rd party ecosphere around FriendFeed, I hope - Jeroen De Miranda
After going through the documentation and playing around with some feeds, I love the fact that you can now see the subscriber lists of people who have their feeds set to private as long as you are subscribed to them and authenticate (mimicking the main site functionality). One thing that's absent is a discussion of Direct Messages. Do they show up in feeds if you authenticate? How do we find just direct messages? - Mark Trapp
Mark: direct messages are accessed using the feed ID "filter/direct". Read more about feed IDs at http://friendfeed.com/api.... Also direct messages appear in the "home" feed. - Benjamin Golub
Benjamin: ahhh, I see it now. I missed it when skimming that list over. Thanks! - Mark Trapp
Can you post the wget version of the command line? - Gabe
Gabe: wget --user=bgolub --password=passwd --post-file=MyPhoto.jpg http://friendfeed-api.com/v2... should work. In theory. Edit: nope. I'm not sure it's possible to do with wget. - Mark Trapp
Thanks God it is New API. - AlpB. from iPod
Nice progress here with this release! - Micah
I love it! - friday night
Why is wget questionable? - Gabe
Gabe: wget doesn't support multipart forms as a design decision. If you post a file, FriendFeed returns a 404, and if you post data, the query is too long for wget to handle. - Mark Trapp
Good work, look forward to seeing what developers can create - Joe Dawson
doublepluslike - Vezquex
curl FTW. - Jeremy Kunz
This is great, FriendFeed team. Good job. - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Woowoo, bgolub's password is “passwd” ;-) - Amit Patel
Amit: I wonder how many people tested that :) - Benjamin Golub
Thanks to bgolub posting his password, I now have all of FriendFeed's secret documents about notorious users, useless metrics, Justin Timberlake's promoting FF on Oprah's show, hiring Colbert as a spokesperson, Ev Williams being just a “distraction”. TechCrunch is going to love this! ;) - Amit Patel
Yes big big thanks to the whole team for all their hard work!! - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ from iPhone
thank you;) waiting for the release :) loving clone - abdellah from FriendFeed API Example
Yay subscribers exposed! - EricaJoy
Finally OAuth, I had a hard time memorizing my remote key. - Hugh Isaacs II
This is indeed very cool, anybody started on a c# version? - Jesper Lind
AJ Batac
Awesome server farm @ night
very kool - (jeff)isageek
Looks like a place where a geek could propose someone... - Jemm
reminds me of a scene from Matrix 2... - Glenn Batuyong
You can click on the image and use it as your wallpaper too (just in case you don't know) - AJ Batac
Is Obi-Wan there, trying to shut down the tractor beam? - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
'Kill the Gibson!' Heh - Ian Dexter Marquez
Nice Ian. You know; long, long ago, my Internet handle was Crash Override, in honor of that movie. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
No 2001 jokes? C'mon, people. - Andrew C (✔)
Very pretty. - Jason Nunnelley
So where did the picture come from? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I feel a new sketch book drawing coming on ^^^ :D - Micah
Kamilah, somewhere here http://www.socwall.com/. My current wallpaper. - AJ Batac
Am I *that* transparent? :P :) That is a really cool image. I'll give it away... Micah guessed right. I had to use a new technique (new to the sketchbooks, anyway) to capture this image... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
How about a CC (or other copyleft) license so we can use and cite this in presentations? - Chris Lasher
I guess we now know where some of the Matrix style came from in real life, eh? @Curtiss: That old handle of yours sounds so cyberpunk that I'll probably have to use it as the title of a cyberpunk novel... ;) - Dennis Jernberg
I want one:) - Michael Fidler
for me at first glace it looked like the MCP from maybe Tron 2 - Shawn McCollum
It looks like the birthplace of Skynet. - TrafficBug
@Dennis - In case you weren't aware, the handle Crash Override is from the movie Hackers with Jonny Lee Miller, Matthew Lillard and Angelina Jolie (with Fisher Stevens as the evil corporate hacker and Penn Jillette in a small role as his assistant). Although much of it was ridiculous from a technology perspective, it was still a really fun movie with a fantastic soundtrack (the soundtrack itself actually has two sequels). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
@Curtiss Grymala - Hackers! great movie! the "Rainbow Books" HA! - shayne catrett
Dave Winer
Google Reader ---> Please support rssCloud so you can get realtime updates from Wordpress blogs!! We'll help you. Love, Davey
I'll take support for any real-time protocol - that would be nice - Jesse Stay
Click "Like" if you agree! - Dave Winer
won't the pubhubbubsubdubtublubzub guys be all like "Hey, screw RSSCloud, put our shit in instead!"? - Mark
I don't think so. I think we all want realtime realtime. That would deprive us of realtime-ness and would be illogical and counter-productive and non-sensical. Could never happen. - Dave Winer
Doesn't reader support Hubbub already anyway? - Jalada
I hope they support both - regardless, it would be a huge win for real-time. - Jesse Stay
I don't see it happening any time soon but it would be nice. - Jason Williams from iPhone

Hi Folks! Today is my birthday, I'm 33! :) And I wanted to celebrate by releasing an idea -and an implementation of it- to the wild! It's Socnode: The basic unit of distributed social networks. http://www.socnode.org/
I'm also opening the private group Dango Daikazoku だんご大家族 where the making-of socnodes is actively discussed. Welcome everyone! http://friendfeed.com/dango-p... :) Oh and the source code here: http://github.com/directe... ! Fork! :) DEMO here: http://ff.im/7u1ER ! - directeur
happy birthday buddy. congrats! :) - Oguz Serdar
Phew! I feel LIGHTER! :) - directeur

Dune Remake to be a Hard PG-13, Massive Adventure Epic - http://www.firstshowing.net/2009...
Dune Remake to be a Hard PG-13, Massive Adventure Epic
"It's been two years since Peter Berg confirmed he was attached to direct the third adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal science fiction novel Dune. Of course, the first adaptation was auteur David Lynch's avant-garde, torpid 1984 film, the second being Sci Fi Channel'sminiseries in 2000. But little has been said about this third attempt to corral the story of Paul Atreides and his family amidst a futuristic feudal interstellar empire as they take control of the lone source of spice melange, the most valuable resource in the universe. It's no wonder Dune has proved a worthy foe when condensed into film form." - Derrick from Bookmarklet
Sure, the Dune universe is a rich, expansive environment, but what makes Dune, Dune is the interplay of the socio-economic, political struggles effecting the characters and the familial, localized emotional struggle of the main characters. Distilling the story into a base action/adventure story? It won't be a Dune that the purists will flock to, but it may, in reality, make a lot better... more... - Derrick
I've never seen Dune in any form, nor read the books. *ducks* - Derrick
It might be heresy, but I wouldn't read past the second book (but I read them as a child, so that may not be fair) - RAPatton from iPhone
Derrick, Fatboy Slim's track "Weapon of Choice" is about Dune --> "if walk without rhythm, you won't attract the worm" - RAPatton from iPhone
The headline made me go "hmm... possibilities..." the reading of the article left me with "you're doing it wrong." - Michael W. May
I've read the series in English and German. I am a dork. - Katy S
I'm not much of a sci-fi fan to sit and read it, but if I was to watch it, should I start with the Lynch one? Or the mini-series? Robert, will that make sense to me after I watch the movie(s)? - Derrick
At first glance the guy in front seemed like Will Ferrell :o Anyway, I'm willing to give this movie a chance :) - Jemm from fftogo
The David Lynch movie is definitely worth seeing. I haven't seen the miniseries. - Jason Wehmhoener
Yes, Derrick, the song will make sense after the movie/book - RAPatton from iPhone
But are they on Blu-ray? #hdsnob - Derrick
I recommend everyone to read the first book. It's not that heavy on sci-fi and it tells a very elaborated, compelling and rich story. I saw the movie and the mini-series beforehand and both pale in comparison to the greatness of the novel. I can tell you to skip reading LOTR and watch the movies if you don't have time because both offer compelling experiences but in Dune's case the screen versions are bad enough that I thought Dune sucked until I read the book. Now it's one of my favorite books of ever. - David Rodriguez
Dune is about empire, expansionism, marketplace monopoly, religion, duty and honour vs what is right and wrong, and revolution. The power struggles those entail. It happens to take place in a sci-fi-ish setting. - Michael W. May
This was an editorial review from Amazon: "Dune is to science fiction what The Lord of the Rings is to fantasy. Though fans believed they had bid a sad farewell to the sand planet of Arrakis upon Herbert's death in 1986, his son Brian has assumed writing the Nebula and Hugo award-winning series with the help of Kevin J. Anderson. But the original is always the most popular, and Ace here... more... - Derrick

safari is about 10 trillion times better than firefox.
how so? - testbeta
Because Mike Says So - Mark
depends on your likes and dislikes, yeah it might be for mac - testbeta
Mike, do you think it's a gecko vs webkit thing or 'the other bits'? - Chris Heath
I also love Safari from the first time I used it on a Mac (v. 2 I think), even though FF has way more options - George Moga
it's VERY good but it's not better than FFx - Thomas Power
I think closing tabs by middle-clicking works, but on Windows. At least it did in the 4 beta version. - George Moga
yes but Chrome on the Mac is even better than S4 - Thomas Power

Don’t! The secret of self-control. - http://www.newyorker.com/reporti...
The secret of self-control.
"At the time, psychologists assumed that children’s ability to wait depended on how badly they wanted the marshmallow. But it soon became obvious that every child craved the extra treat. What, then, determined self-control? Mischel’s conclusion, based on hundreds of hours of observation, was that the crucial skill was the “strategic allocation of attention.” Instead of getting obsessed with the marshmallow—the “hot stimulus”—the patient children distracted themselves by covering their eyes, pretending to play hide-and-seek underneath the desk, or singing songs from “Sesame Street.” Their desire wasn’t defeated—it was merely forgotten. “If you’re thinking about the marshmallow and how delicious it is, then you’re going to eat it,” Mischel says. “The key is to avoid thinking about it in the first place.” In adults, this skill is often referred to as metacognition, or thinking about thinking, and it’s what allows people to outsmart their shortcomings. (When Odysseus had himself tied to... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
This is an interesting quote because it implies that "will power" is more about mental strategy, not some kind of mental strength for forcing yourself to do something. I have the same strategy with food -- I eat whatever I see, so in order to not eat something I just need to put it out of sight. - Paul Buchheit
effectively "out of sight, out of mind" - alphaxion
This is where the magic of science is: you spend time and resources to prove a proverb. - .i.m.a.r.s.o.r.a.m.a.
"The child who could wait fifteen minutes had an S.A.T. score that was, on average, two hundred and ten points higher than that of the kid who could wait only thirty seconds." - J.D. Deutschendorf
Sometimes I worry my metacognition is slowing me down because I'm spending less time just cogniting. (that oughtta be a word.) But no, in all seriousness, I think something, then realize the thought was there before I subvocalized it, and then I go in a circle several times subvocalizing those same thoughts as I examine the process of thinking. Frustrating! - Andrew C (✔)
Some friends and I refer to this study often, pointing out when we've failed the marshmallow test. Staying up late is my most common mashmallow test failure (sacrificing morning time to enjoy a few more bleary hours NOW), but it's easy to spot this sort of behavior and fun to have a standard vocabulary to highlight its ubiquity. - Seth
Episode on Mischel's marshmallows on RadioLab -- http://blogs.wnyc.org/radiola... - Alex Haar
As a parent, I consciously used this strategy to distract my children whenever they got in mischief, behaved badly or acted out. As a grandparent, I often send a box of tricks, things like super balls, an "uno" deck, paints, a book, a yoyo or top, for my daughter to use with my grandchildren when they are driving her crazy and need to think about something other than running around screaming. - Phil Boiarski
OK, that makes sense, but let's flip this on its head - How do you instead keep your mind on something and prevent yourself from getting distracted? You can't distract yourself from your distractions. Andrew C, the word you're looking for is cogitating. - Mr. Gunn
Mr Gunn, thanks. Though I think 'cogniting' is a touch funnier. - Andrew C (✔)
Some chimpanzees use this strategy as well, though not all of them. - Björn Brembs
i think bhudda had some theory on this too...:/ - Paul Moss
Today my 4yo daughter was having trouble waiting for a treat, so I told her (and my wife) about reading this article last night. I talked about the ability to distract - and I thought I was doing a pretty good job of explaining it in 4yo terms. When I was done with my paraphrase/lesson, I asked her if she understood. "Uh-huh," she said. Then after a few moments, she asked if we could stop and get some marshmallows on the way home. All I could do is laugh! - Gary Walter (gwalter)
I read a different writeup of this experiment a couple years ago, when our daughter was about 1 year old. Its something that can be taught, and encouraged. She's now very good at distracting herself from something which she knows she shouldn't do or would get into trouble over. She's not easily distracted in general: she can focus quite well on something she wants to do (and is allowed to do). - DGentry

Federer is amazing. This is the coolest shot I have ever seen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVQhIEPbM0g
On SportsCenter they made it seem like Nadal had done it the match before though. I dunno if they were messing with the timeline. - Casey Muller
Although Nadal lost the point. - Casey Muller
Amazing! He tried one like that at Match point in the fourth set of the 2005 Australian Open final against Safin - it didn't work, and he went on to lose the match in the fifth set... - Michael Nielsen
I only saw it because I tuned in for 60 Minutes early. Not really a tennis fan, but I can certainly appreciate that shot. - Tom Landini

I wonder what the engineering decision was to not use a WSGI interface. - mikepk
mikepk: it supports WSGI, but it is not WSGI by default because WSGI does not support non-blocking I/O for things like hanging connections. See http://www.tornadoweb.org/documen.... - Bret Taylor
This actually is a very good piece of code! Thanks folks! - directeur
cool, Bret, thanks :) I was just heading through the docs now. - mikepk
oh man, this is so awesome, thanks guys! - Charles Ying
Is "tonado" a typo? - Bruce Lewis from fftogo

Great work - James Myatt
Franz: enables widespread adoption which leads to greater influence of the technique - Mike Chelen
So excited this is out. So many personal projects I have been wanting to build with it :) - Bret Taylor
Fantastic, Bret (and team)! - Micah
A very good project!...you know if will be possibile to use Tornado with other technogies except Python (such as JEE, Ruby On Rails, etc.)? - Nicola Junior Vitto
Cristo: we tried to use the official Python coding conventions, though we may have inadvertently strayed. Those conventions are: ClassNames, method_names, variable_names - Bret Taylor
Brilliant! I hope you can provide very valuable input for the next round of #python WSGI, which desperately needs a next round ;) - Uche Ogbuji

Nicola: there is a Ruby example - http://gist.github.com/184760 - Mike Chelen
thx Mike, but this is a kind of eventmachine (that sounds good) for Ruby, not a Tornado client or wrapper...isn't it? - Nicola Junior Vitto
Excellent! Thank you. Was eagerly waiting for the day to come after looking this just 1 month ago; "changeset: 5afb8a445cad / date: 2009-08-11 16:34:48 / description: Initial open source packages" http://changelog.friendfeed.com/2009... - NaHi from m.ctor.org

@bret just out of curiosity - what would necessitate usage of such an engine for a *personal* project? :) - Michael Bravo
Michael: it is a nice framework to use for any project in my opinion (though I am clearly biased). If you are doing anything real-time like the chat demo, something like Tornado is certainly necessary/useful regardless of the size of the project. - Bret Taylor from email
@bret and for little-sized hardware? should have try it on Maemo based :))) - A. T.
@silpol I kinda fail to see Maemo devices being used for servers (unless it's some kind of satellite-based or other covert server maybe :) ) - Michael Bravo from IM
@mbravo you never know... there are some unusual (and cool) apps for web servers, granted you abstain (on purpose) from classical models, e.g.server farm somewhere there and herds of clients connecting to it... - A. T.
I think this is the best answer for the ultimate question: "Does python needs yet another web framework?" While most of us would say why, when one come across this, a real world proven technology, serving zillions of pages a day, one would say, well, why not. actually, why not even take it an try to integrate out next web app with it? great job! seems like joining FB won't do you any harm ;-) - Tzury Bar Yochay

Nick Lothian
#rssCloud is even more broken that I realized. It won't work in a virtual hosting environment (ie, many domains on the same IP address)
Nick, but only if each of those domains is trying to use #rssCloud? - Matthew Ogston
No, any of them that are served under http 1.1. The notifications are sent to the IP address, not the hostname, so they will never reach a http 1.1 host. - Nick Lothian
Wow... interesting discovery. I hadn't thought about this issue, but IP addresses definitely break virtual-hosted environments. - Matt M (inactive)
Yeah. I was going to implement a rssCloud->PSHB proxy, but that killed it for me. Someone should also point out that rssCloud will really be in trouble in ~700 days when we exhaust all IPv4 addresses (http://ipv6.he.net/ - I'm assuming it won't work with IPv6 yet). - Nick Lothian
IPv6 is *probably* safe in rssCloud. REMOTE_ADDR would return an IPv6 address, which would be used to construct the callback URL. Worst case, a handful of hubs would have to ensure they properly quote the remote address. - Matt M (inactive)
Woha! Someone can explain to me why people at WP opted for this instead of PSHB? Seriously? - directeur
Yeah, but I wonder how many people have coded it with a database with only enough space for an IPv4 address - Nick Lothian
What was the rationale behind only using the IP address? That seems incredibly foolish: problems like these are why DNS exists. - Mark Trapp
using the IP address sort of avoids a lot of issues with having to verify someone really wanted to subscribe to a notification - Nick Lothian
+1 Mark. Nick, verifying that someone wanted to subscribe doesn't have to be that complicated. Challenge them. - directeur
Oh, I'm not saying it's a _good_ way of verifying! Just that is why I suspect it was done like that. It's going to be hard to change it in a backwards compatible way. Adding a "host" parameter that must resolve to the same IP as the request comes from could get around the virtual hosting problem, but it won't solve a lot of other issues. Beyond that, it is going to need to add in some kind of challenge/response handling on the subscription. - Nick Lothian
RSSCloud has a lot of flaws because it was created in 2001, used by one software company and then dropped a couple years later. If it is adopted as-is, there will be a lot of problems like this. But there's no reason not to learn from the last eight years. Dave Winer has already made changes for people using REST. He could change the IP requirement as well. - Rogers Cadenhead

Will friendfeed keep using their mysql blob store system or will they move to something more native to the FB platform? - Ian Kallen
arjo: I will try to get to that. - Robert Scoble
Facebook supports activitystrea.ms already - Jesse Stay
Ian: I think the answer is clear that the future is Cassandra and other systems built to deal with 300-500 million users. - Robert Scoble

The GDGT live coverage of the Apple rollout is proof that Twitter is not what's needed for the news system of the future. You need pictures, and instant updating, and it has to stay up under a heavy load. http://live.gdgt.com/2009...
Wish someone would invent some sort of cloud for RSS that would make things realtime. - Rich
Heh. One thing GDGT doesn't do is what we're doing right now -- it needs a place for users to kibitz. - Dave Winer
embedded pictures are available through client handling of included links. there is a twitter stream api http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Streami... though it is still in early stages - Mike Chelen
True - between the various live sites and FF it's clear that real time is the only way. Can't wait to see the fruits of RSSCloud and PubSubHubbub. - Rich
Rich: one solution is XMPP which uses XML, the language underlying RSS. there are more news options that work well in various situations - Mike Chelen
Good work by the way on making the internet work! Seems you've had a hand in a fair few of the key technologies making things work… - Rich
Yeah, XMPP seems promising as well - though it doesn't seem easy to use as a developer - never really worked out how to set up a server etc. - Rich
Rich, check out AppEngine's XMPP support: http://code.google.com/appengi... I used it to write a PubSubHubbub to XMPP transport in less than an hour last night. - Matt M (inactive)
Ooh - that looks interesting... - Rich
I don't know Java, but perhaps the same API is exposed using Python... - Rich
Ah - Rich
Predicable URLs are the best thing! - Rich
Yeah, AppEngine is good with Java/Python parity. If I were integrating XMPP into an application, I'd choose AppEngine to host the XMPP part of things. It's very stable and takes a huge management load off your shoulders. - Matt M (inactive)
I'll have a look at that - XMPP is on my list of things that I don't know enough about... - Rich
Rich: there are existing XMPP / Jabber servers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... and libraries available to use, some of the newer alternatives include pubsubhubbub http://code.google.com/p... and simple update protocol (SUP) http://code.google.com/p... and google wave - Mike Chelen

Okay, I admit I'm utterly and totally confused. Why *both* rssCloud and Pubsub Hubbub? Is it a competition thing? Claim to ownership?
This is with all due respect to both parties. I just want to come to a consensus. I like Brett. I like Brad. I like Dave Winer (we had a great time at the Mets game last month). I just don't understand why the two are working against each other. - Jesse Stay
Why is Wordpress choosing rssCloud and not PSHB? - Jesse Stay
Don't get me wrong - I completely support open protocols. I want to see both succeed, but why not work together to succeed? - Jesse Stay
I don't think I speak just for myself on this - I'm confused. - Jesse Stay
Reminds me of the time you wanted to know if Twitter would support OMB protocol. or not. :-) - Brian Hendrickson
Brian, that's a little different though. I wasn't thinking RSS at the time - OMB doesn't work with RSS that I'm aware of. It's a valid competitor. - Jesse Stay
But rssCloud and PSHB are hardly competitors with RSS. They both lie on top of it. I don't get the need to have 2. - Jesse Stay
And why we're dividing the community. I've claimed it's a Google thing, but honestly, I don't know. Is this to go against Google? Is it an ownership thing? Let me know why I should get behind you. I'm not sure I know which one to support any more. I'm going to move to a more unbiased standpoint I think now. I was wrong to push one over the other yesterday in any way. - Jesse Stay
Here's my summary of OMB vs rssCloud vs PubsubHubbub: OMB is fastest, PubsubHubbub scales the best and rssCloud is the most loosely coupled, in a good way. - Brian Hendrickson
Maybe there isn't competition and I'm just perceiving it as such. - Jesse Stay
I want to support them all, personally. :-) - Jesse Stay
I think you'd have to go back and study the history of RSS vs Atom to see how we got where we are today. - Ken Sheppardson
Do any of these three make a good Pushbutton-Web protocol until Google Wave is widely scalable? - Brian Hendrickson
Ken, sounds like an awful mess to me. Why do we have to go through that again? - Jesse Stay
Not again. Still. - Ken Sheppardson
Otto, yeah, that's my guess as well. Although they could have potentially used a third-party PSHB hub if they wanted (you can change hubs any time you want). PSHB is designed to push complexity and scalability into the hub. I don't think implementing one hub per blog is the right thing to do (which is basically what wordpress.org did - using the WP rssCloud plugin). - Matt M (inactive)
Dave Winer would point out that rssCloud has been around since 2001. Pubsubhubbub point out that they do things rssCloud doesn't that they think is better (see PriorArt on their wiki) so fill in some gaps. - Jalada
rssCloud was "around" since 2001, but only in tag form. The previous element used SOAP and XML-RPC and was poorly documented (AFAICT, this was the best reference: http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/rss...). The REST interface to rssCloud (which makes it easy to implement), was only recently developed. Some interesting discussion on it from 2006: http://lists.apple.com/archive... - Matt M (inactive)
This is just how stuff happens. A makes a thing. B makes a similar thing that is better. People discuss A vs. B. People end up using A + B. Eventually someone makes C, D, E and F if the original idea was good enough, but has room for improvement. I don't think we're done innovating in this space by a longshot. - Jason Wehmhoener
Otto, how is it more simple? - Jesse Stay
BTW, I admit I hate the name Pubsub Hubbub, but that's all I hate about it. - Jesse Stay
In a way Otto is right - PSHB was designed with the idea that hubs should be capable of rate-limiting requests. This makes any hub written from scratch more complicated if you want to do it right. rssCloud also has a significant amount of hidden complexity built into it, but it's *really* easy to develop a 90% solution. The WP rssCloud plugin is good, but there's going to be some serious scale issues with it once you have thousands of clients getting pings from it. - Matt M (inactive)
Otto - rssCloud actually has to check if the feed has changed (to prevent rogue pingers from spamming updates), so it's not entirely stateless. PSHB's state isn't much more complicated. Instead of storing a single hash for the whole RSS file, it stores a map of the last RSS item ids to their hashes. If it sees a new item, or an ID item whose item has changed, it sends that off to its... more... - Matt M (inactive)
If you don't check that the feed has actually updated, you open yourself up to spamming all of your subscribed clients, who then thunderingly herd at the original site's RSS (assuming that they originally subscribed to the cloud from the original site's RSS' <cloud> element). There's no authentication on the ping request for external services for standalone rssCloud hubs. Note that... more... - Matt M (inactive)
Robert Scoble
Watch next week what @davewiner does with RSS (decentralized Tweet distribution):
If this is all working Dave Winer will see this post, via Twitter, in his RSS aggregator via the RSS Cloud. What does this mean? We will soon be able to build our own Twitters that interact with both Tweets as well as old-style blog posts via RSS. Oh, yeah, all in near real time. At most a minute between publish and reads. Right Dave? - Robert Scoble from email
By the way, the bridge is beautiful tonight and a good metaphor for what Dave is building: a bridge between Twitter and other things. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
I like this because I have faith in Dave, not because this paragraph was completely coherent. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Jimminy: it took me more than a year to get RSS. Hopefully I can explain this better soon. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
After finally getting RSS and now Twitter, now we have to figure out how they intertwine. Hopefully that will be easier. - Robin Whitson
This is Scobles cloud-enabled feed, emanating from Twitter. http://twitter.rsscloud.org/Scoblei... - Dave Winer
Robert, It's just the one sentence in the middle that I'm still trying to understand, I'm guessing you mean we can use our source to interact with Twitter and Blogs. I'm guessing this is posting to both locations. I still can't use Google Reader, it doesn't feel right to have to sit on a site to wait for feeds, my browser should update me when something new comes in. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
What does it mean Dave? - Chris Saad
oops, I tried seeing mine. Access denied. :) - motownmutt
Dave, you must tell me more. :-) How is this different than just subscribing to Scoble's Twitter feed RSS in your favorite reader? (PM me if I can try it) - Jesse Stay
I have a client doing simultaneous video viewing and messaging in a viral, shareable platform now - Karma Martell
Jesse, it's explained here. http://rsscloud.org/ - Dave Winer
J: not that I know. Huh? - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Dave - very cool, so is this competing with Hubbub then? Robert, you can already create your own Twitter by publishing to your blog and subscribers getting updates via RSS. :-) This makes that stream real-time, which Twitter doesn't have. - Jesse Stay
Jesse, this was developed in January 2001. http://www.thetwowayweb.com/soapmee... - Dave Winer
I wondered why I can't read my rss stream in twitter, other way round is possible but not functional. - Michael Jung from Android
J. deakins: I had no idea who he is. I've followed him now. Jesse: the thing that this opens up for me is real time RSS and the potential for building Twitters we control. The world feels a lot like 1993 right now. Apple controls mobile. Twitter controls microblogging. Sort of like AOL and Compuserve did. Then things changed in 1994, and I see this as a step toward that. - Robert Scoble
I know that folks in business and media are all asking themselves why they are giving Twitter control over their brands and lives. Think about all the free advertising CNN has given Twitter this year. For what? So that we can take away their news brand. That seems monumentally stupid to me even though I'm benefiting from this stupidity on media's part big time. - Robert Scoble
Holden: I think they should say "follow our Twitter at CNN.com/twitter" instead of at "twitter.com/CNN." Get it yet? - Robert Scoble
oh GOD yes - finally :) - Chris Saad
totally unrelated but what were you doing up there tonight? it has been ridiculously beautiful lately. - metalerik
Robert, the only thing different about it that I can see is that it's real-time. You've been able to create your own Twitter since 2000 (or whenever RSS came to be). - Jesse Stay
metalerik: I picked my son up in Petaluma and are now driving home. Well, except now we're in an Apple store. :-) - Robert Scoble
Jesse: real time is very important. - Robert Scoble
Dave, so the only advantage is that it pre-dates Hubbub? I'm just curious, constructively, what the advantages are. - Jesse Stay
Robert, Twitter isn't real-time though - Jesse Stay
Holden: it's more than an oversight. Of course, I have the same sins (I give my brand over to Twitter and FriendFeed and Posterous and Facebook). Maybe that's why I recognize that sin in others. :-) Of course I didn't have the world's #1 news brand and don't charge thousands of dollars per minute for advertising, which CNN is now giving away for free to Twitter. - Robert Scoble
Robert - Apple store good. Getting home on time unlikely - Arthur Coleman
I'm glad YOU said it Scoble :) - Chris Saad
Jesse: Twitter is real time enough. Note that Dave got this original Tweet within a minute. - Robert Scoble
Arthur: I pay $6 to cross the bridge and $50 to buy Snow Leopard. Steve Jobs tax paid. Now we can go home! :-) - Robert Scoble
"yeah, you wouldn't belieeeeeeeeeeve how bad the traffic was..." heheh - metalerik
Holden: yup. This is why RSS Cloud is interesting. It is yet another bridge between Twitter and owning your own brand again. - Robert Scoble
metalerik: it was horrid. It seems like I've been driving all day. Oh, wait, I have been. Sigh. - Robert Scoble
Dave is on a roll. This is super! - Mahendra (SkepticGeek)
i'm pretty sure i never lost my brand dude... - Jeremy Toeman
Robert, when I post to my blog you get it immediately as well. - Jesse Stay
i can't help but feel this is all about something relevant to the 0.000001% of people who *both* create AND consume a tremendous amount of content, not the majority of people who barely do either... - Jeremy Toeman
Jesse: excellent. Now you'll get everything I do immediately. :-) - Robert Scoble
Jeremy: true. Most people don't care, which is why most people use Facebook. But anyone who has a monetizeable content brand, like CNN, should care deeply. - Robert Scoble
so you think CNN has "lost brand value" because they use twitter? - Jeremy Toeman
BTW - here's your missing bridge piece. :) http://images.earthcam.com/ecnetwo... - Jeremy Toeman
Jesse FTW. - Jeremy Toeman
super happy that robert is trying this out. i hope this makes RSS more interesting to you again :) these are good times. REDUX! - sull
Need to play with this and think through it but I believe that several of our brands are going to be interested in this - thanks for sharing Robert, and thanks for continuing to push the boundaries Dave. - Bill Sanders
Robert: Have a good weekend syncing Snow Leopard with Exchange - it's big new thing, I hear - Arthur Coleman
Next piece in this thread: RSS has no Fail Whale. http://www.scripting.com/stories... - Dave Winer
That last comment is spam. - Garin Kilpatrick
BTW -- Robert has oversold here a bit. First, don't look to what I do with RSS next week, look to what others do with it. And it may not happen next week. That's why I, as an engineer, generally don't make promises like the one Robert made. Slippage happens all the time, the best laid plans of mice and men... http://wiki.answers.com/Q... - Dave Winer
Does anyone - besides Dave and Scoble - still use RSS? I always wanted to love RSS, but I simply don't don't see the reason. It's a solution looking for a problem. Even without all the scalability problems - Twitter already delivers much more value than any other rss-based method ever did. I like the idea of a distributed microblogging system like Dave proposes for rssCloud, but don't think this will happen with RSS ever. - gui ambros

Stir - All of FriendFeed in your pocket | Structlab
Wow, seems incredibly feature-packed and polished. View posts based on geotagging or specific services like YouTube? Looks delicious, can't wait to give it a whirl on the train soon. - David Chartier from Bookmarklet
Sorry for the multi-posts everyone, juggling too much and not paying attention this afternoon. I think I cleaned it all up. That said: Stir is pretty nice so far. Scrolls like butter. - David Chartier
Hey, i'm the author of Stir. Glad you like it! Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any suggestions or requests :) - Aaron Brethorst
Please keep us posted on your tests. I've been searching FF to see if anyone was checking it out. - metalerik
Installed and playing with it now. Really liking this, top work Aaron. - Keith Bennett
Thanks, Keith! In all seriousness, comments like yours make the four months I spent writing it worthwhile. Also, to everyone who has purchased it: please help me out by leaving a review for it in the AppStore :) Exposing it to more people generates more revenue which lets me spend more time adding new features to it (like support for direct messages, real time support, and so on) - Aaron Brethorst
What you mean it doesn't do dm or real time??? Well in that case.... Only joking. I'll add a review for the UK store later. In all seriousness, this is a really cool app. It's looking like my default FF app from now on. - Keith Bennett
thanks again, Keith :) So, the backstory on DM is that this wasn't even supported for third party apps until the release of FF's v2.0 APIs, which only happened a few weeks ago. By then, I was in to final testing of my app, and didn't want to switch over to a new API version or figure out how to shoehorn in a feature I hadn't originally planned on. As far as real-time goes, I spent a lot... more... - Aaron Brethorst
Good to hear mate, always a difficult decision about when to release something I guess. Keep adding those features. Any chance of an option to send something to twitter in the same way you can with the send to facebook? - Keith Bennett
Also, any chance of setting up a support/feature request group here on FF? - Keith Bennett
Twitter's on the list of things to support :) You can find the discussion group here at http://friendfeed.com/stirapp - Aaron Brethorst
Cheers, will post my requests in there. - Keith Bennett
I already have BuddyFeed which is a pretty decent app. I'll be downloading Stir too. I prefer the FriendFeed service to any other Social Networking destination but have to admit that, especially from the point of view of posting, I use Twitter more. The explanation is simple, superb third party iPhone apps, especially TwittelatorPro which is really best of breed. If Twitter wasn't served so well by the likes of TP then I'd hardly use it at all. Best of luck with this new application. - JSLeFanu
Looks cool, gonna check it out now :-) - Jalada
Yawn, yet another boring iphone app. - Richard A.
wish someone would make the blackberry app... - Richard Reeve
Kudos Aaron. I'm using Stir to post this reply, and I'm really, really liking the app. It's well designed, has pretty much all the FF features (and those it doesn't have look like they'll be coming soon), and it's rock solid. BuddyFeed is good, Stir is way better! - Brad Brooks
Thanks, Brad. I'm glad you like it. If you have a spare minute, please leave a review on the AppStore :) - Aaron Brethorst
Awesome, finally another FF app to try! I like BuddyFeed, but it seems like the dev isn't going to update it anymore. That the Stir dev seems active here, fielding questions and requests, is promising. Thanks for posting about it here. - Cheryl Jones
I've posted a review on the AppStore (UK), Aaron. It should be up soon :) - Brad Brooks
@Brad: Unless your review gets rejected for objectionable content or something. ;) - David Chartier
@David: Well, you never know with the AppStore reviewers :D - Brad Brooks
I'm finally starting to use my FriendFeed account now that there is a decent iPhone App available. - Justin Stevens
Got it yesterday (after reading it here). So far so good. Very good FF client for the iPhone! - Peter van Teeseling
@justin, @peter - thank you both :) - Aaron Brethorst
I've bought buddyfeed, but I still buy stir, it's much better. I like it. - pastas9
Seems awesome bit buggy. For enchance, everytime I hit load more it just adds the first batch of updates again with no older updates. Way better features and interface than any of the alternatives though! Will try it again later, maybe the FF API was freacking our with it. - Chris White from FreshFeed
Weird, works fine - Chris White
Whoops, sorry. Works fine on every feed but everything. It doesn't just not add more either, it addsthe same items already loaded below the current items - Chris White
Chris- can you follow up with me at support@structlab.com? I'd like to better understand what you're seeing. - Aaron Brethorst
I just downloaded this app. It replaced FreshFeed as my FriendFeed iPhone app. - Chris Martin
I really like the UI, but so far it has crashed the three times I've tried using it (once while trying to leave a comment). FreshFeed is a bit more stable, but I just left a comment that got truncated (with no warning from the app). :P - Cheryl Jones
I've been using amigo for the last few months. how does stir stack up against that app? - David Miller
Cheryl, Justin - please follow up with me at support@structlab.com. I'd like understand what seems quirky in the ui and get to the bottom of those crashes. - Aaron Brethorst
I downloaded it, and understandably it's a 1.0 release, but I'm regretting the purchase immediately: the menu system is unintuitive. Clicking on my name doesn't bring up my feed, it brings up my home feed. Clicking the Everyone link brings up the public feed instead of people I'm subscribed to: why is the public feed the top link? There's no link to my discussions page, my likes page,... more... - Mark Trapp
Hi Mark - 'My Discussions' is coming in the next release. Likes and comments can—for the time being—be found through saved searches. Direct messages weren't supported through the FriendFeed API until v2.0, which was released about 4 days before I submitted Stir to Apple. Same thing with Best of Day and OAuth. Can you tell me what you mean by inline commenting? Hide exists; try swiping a... more... - Aaron Brethorst
Aaron - another missing item, or item I've not found yet, is the groups I'm a member of. That and my discussions are two big misses I think. Like others, I enjoy the UI a lot - Patrick Jordan
got 1 on mine 2 - daveccorey
Hey Patrick - groups are supported from the main page. Choose the Groups item and you should be good to go. - Aaron Brethorst
"all groups," actually. - Aaron Brethorst
This is an excellent app! Far superior to what I've been using. - David Miller
@Aaron: I'll try to use Stir more and see if there's a pattern to the crashes, but so far it has seemed random. - Cheryl Jones
Cant find it at US AppStore :( - Kfir Pravda from iPhone
