I think Dave Winer is exactly right about OpenID lock out. didn't take long did it
Dave Winer is right about a lot of things... - Steven (optionshiftk)
ironic that OpenID is closed - Steve Gillmor
It's an oxymoron, nothing is more personal then your ID so how can it be Open? - paul mooney
If it's personal, how can it belong to a proprietor that isn't you? - Hamish MacEwan
open refers to the technology not the data, and thanks for the kind words everyone -- big {***HUG***} -- :-) - Dave Winer
I honestly never really got the big idea behind OpenID. If one password and username can hack into the openid account, then you might as well have used one username and password for every account. Which mans bad security. - MarkCarras
I think you guys are fishing here. I'm going to need more demonstrated specifics to bite. - Chris Messina
MarkCarras, for one if you use the same password at every account you are screwed when services are mess up (reddit storing plain text passwords and had their DB stolen). I don't think openid is perfect but whenever a site emails me my password it makes me cry :( - Jesse Andrews
MarkCarras, you can use an RSA key fob (from Verisign or PayPal) and tie that to your OpenID for all that 2 factor goodness. I'm gonna go dig around to see where the notion of "OpenID lock out" comes from. - coldbrew
My only experience with standards bodies is ISO and EPC where politics is in no short supply. Everyone tries to push their IP as the basis for the standard, much like the large stakeholders in this case would like to be "open", but not so open they can't maintain control (usually wrapped in arguments about privacy). - coldbrew
Chris guess you need to see what it's like when those who support you pull back. Prolly you don't need us. - Steve Gillmor
OpenID is not over the top yet. All it takes is a teeeeeny little bit of FUD from Facebook to get people to say "Are you implementing Twitter's OpenID or Facebook's or Google's?" It's very very easy to do if the process isn't at least observed by some well-known troublemakers. Having Phil Windley there might be enough. He's a Mormon, a quiet man, a Republican for crying out loud -- I trust him and if he says it's all on the up and up, I'm likely to believe it. - Dave Winer
Also --> I can't believe the meeting is not at least being webcast live with chat. That's at least a *partial* figleaf for it being an open process. - Dave Winer
If you guys want to constructively help the OpenID community, then why don't you request an invite and come (http://www.facebook.com/event...) ...assuming that you're wanting to work on improving the user experience from a design perspective. No one has been told "no, don't come" but the event is strongly biased to make room for people who have design and frontend experience working with OpenID so that we can accomplish something tangible in a day. - David Recordon
If they want to keep the discussion "small and focused", they can still live-stream the meeting so it is open (as in visible). - Bruce Lerner
@Dave, are you implicitly saying there that you don't trust me to keep things on the up and up and not let us get to company specific versions of OpenID? I know that we're planning on taping the event, I'll see if there is a way to stream it as well. - David Recordon
Why on earth are you not using the working group model with RFC review and community commentary/feedback. Sadly nothing new here... Watched the same stuff go down with the VoIP "protocol wars". All that will happen is you will discourage anyone from adopting the standard... they will create their own version of it and wait for the standard to "develop". Enjoy the mess. - Brian Roy
David, let's have a brief phone talk, about process only. My email is dave dot winer at gmail dot com. - Dave Winer
@Brian, the OpenID community has a very similar model and process (a bit of a hybrid between IETF, W3C and OASIS) for our technical standards. People come together and create a proposal, the proposal turns into a working group, the working groups produce drafts to be reviewed and implemented by anyone in the community, and then the drafts evolve into finalized OpenID specifications. - David Recordon
@Brian, the meeting Tuesday is not about producing technical specifications. It's about continuing to share design oriented learning and ideally start developing some user experience best practices which might at some point turn into technical work for a new OpenID working group. These *must* be broadly reviewed, contributed to and agreed upon or else they won't be successful. - David Recordon
Phone call? That's not open. Needs to be a conference call. You should post the time and GoToMeeting call ID. - Ken Sheppardson
Brian is right about that. Without going into details, RSS suffered from private mail lists and meetings at invite-only conferences. I'm not going to dredge up the old issues now, it's all quiet now and things are totally in deploy mode. But we could have gotten there a lot quicker w/o this kind of mess. And we got lucky in ways that OpenID isn't likely to get lucky. - Dave Winer
Ken, I said about process only. I have not even implemented OpenID, so it could not possibly about substance. On the other hand I don't mind having an open conference call about this. I've never used GotoMeeting. Let me see if I can figure it out. :-) - Dave Winer
David - Good. My only feedback (since I'm not involved in OpenID in any way) is that - in order to prevent fracturing the standard you must achieve 2 things: Transparency and Progress. Closed meetings with one of X major stakeholders leads the others to consider their own implementation suiting their needs (akin to what Cisco did with SIP via SKINNY). If that happens you end up with "mines better than yours" instead of a community working together to accomplish common goals. - Brian Roy
Brian, I can tell you've been down this path before. :-) - Dave Winer
@Dave, emailed you my number. - David Recordon
BTW, in the spirit of full disclosure, I sent David an email last night at his SixApart mail address suggesting a phone talk, but never heard back. - Dave Winer
Brian - Wish I could 'Like' a comment on Friendfeed.The thought about a standard needs both "transparency and progress" to avoid fragmentation is insightful. - Ian Fogg

Was very excited about the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender movie. The discovered M. Night Shyamalan is directing... uuugh.
This is one the few movies where he is the director and writer of, and it is not an original idea of his So I will be optimistic. Also "What a twist" sorry had too... - Fee501st
The twist might be that M Night Shamalamamadingdong is actually the LAST AIRBENDER! *dum duh duhhhh* (what a tweeest!) - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
Yeah, I heard the news about Shyamalamadingdong directing and decided that there's no way in hell I'm watching the live action Avatar movie. - Jonathan Hardesty
I'm sure it will be something like that play Aang and company encountered...was it in the Fire Nation? Let's hope MNS at least casts a boy as Aang! - MiniMage
I'm still going to watch it... but i'm more reserved in my excitement now. - Veronica

After reading this post, it just clicked for me that FriendFeed is very close to being an open FaceBook. It's potential as a platform is huge. - Cliff Gerrish
I agree with you, Cliff, though I do think that there is a complexity barrier to break down for users...I just went through the exercise of setting up a private room with specific people/imaginary friends/custom feeds. Thinking it through was a challenge. - Karoli
once it is thought through, it becomes simple to implement - Steve Gillmor
stevegillmor, yes...simple enough to implement, though I'm still experimenting with it to make sure it's what I'm after...I think I'm missing a few custom feeds that I very much want. - Karoli
real filtering comes next, as Bret discussed on NGL. KTB Twitter - Steve Gillmor
I guess this is a tipping point for me. Twitter is becoming a dead end. I suppose it's finally time for me to learn how to use FriendFeed. Thanks for leading the way Steve. - Ron Schott
This is interesting speculation about motives, however I asked Alex Payne publicly about why they were doing this and his answer which seemed straightforward was that they were having trouble with the scalability of the XMPP libraries that they were using, and the design of XMPP itself, and so were implementing their own solution. As such it would be prudent for them to roll this out in a controlled manner. To me this explains their behavior adequately without the intrigue. - Robin Barooah
no intrigue robin. ALex' FAQ entry is very explicit. Just read it. - Steve Gillmor
rbarooah except that it doesn't square with what others have said about xmpp scaling. it can be scaled. They dumped IM and *invited* others to implement it. They published an API and *invited* developers to develop based on it. And now, they're going to uninvite the world, and make it elite. - Karoli from IM
@Steve - do you mean this: http://tinyurl.com/b3lg5c ? - Robin Barooah
it's beginning to look like twitter is the bush/cheney model, unapologetic and exclusive, unable to keep the lightning in the bottle without losing the belief and support of their constituents. They close the valve down to a pinhole size and we wait for them to send the ransom note. They may have the high ground but now rather than being the mansion on the hill, their loyal users are looking for pitchforks and fire. - Aron Michalski from IM
@Karoli - I'm not saying that taking away an API that you've invited people to use is good practice - it seems like a blunder to me. As to xmpp scaling - I really don't think Alex Payne was being deceptive - sure some people may be able make it scale, but Twitter has to get there from where they are now, and perhaps that's not so easy. All I'm really trying to say is that I believe that they have technical reasons for this that are valid from their position. - Robin Barooah
it's not that we are unwilling or unable to consider a premium service, but it's like being asked for your lunch money after you've been knocked down and kicked in the stomach. - Aron Michalski from IM
not sure I would trust Twitter enough to pay them, now. What if I paid for a year's worth of their service so they could slowly scale back what I paid for? - Karoli from IM
so what we feared all along with twitter is coming true, the bill coming due and we're a little upside down on the note. We were willing to pay for the service we fell in love with but now it seems like they want us to live in the guest house, share the bathroom and park in the street. - Aron Michalski from IM
robin whether or not the motives are pure, they have lost my trust for good. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice; shame on me. They appear to be unconcerned with those who actually supply them with content. Since May 2008 i've waited for them to restore track. I've gone through all sorts of workarounds while I waited. They said "trust us" so I did. Not this time. - Karoli from IM
I think if Twitter was acting in good faith, they would have put twitterspy at the top of the list for whitelisting. Bearhug camp anyone? - Christian Burns
the thing that angers me is that this conversation is not going through identi.ca and I had wished that as these inevitable choke holds clamped down around our collective wind pipe that our open alternative would be the place to defend our position from. My current configuration does not allow me to do this as they kick off 100 yards away, this being more compelling and lasting. Fuck... more... - Aron Michalski from IM
christianburns exactly. Tha - Karoli from IM
sigh. Hit enter too soon. - Karoli from IM
aron identica is no more or less an open play than a commercial venture such as FriendFeed. everybody needs to prove their value proposition and establish a viable contract with enough of the right users to make a difference. - Steve Gillmor
steve right now identi.ca seems more valuable than twitter, because twitter just walled their garden. Given a choice, FF and identi.ca will get my $$$ because they haven't violated my trust - Karoli from IM
Nice. I keep asking myself, how long will I keep putting up with this. It's my data, even if I am unimportant in Twitter's grand scheme of things.. - Francine Hardaway
Right. Identi.ca needs a good mobile app - Francine Hardaway
francine, twittelator works quite nicely with identi.ca on the ipod touch/iphone - Karoli from IM
I agree,; We're all "on-the-tip" here at FF - CLC Radio
so is twitterspy coming back? i needs my gtalk updates.. - Christopher Harris
@chrisharris I'm guessing Dustin is going to have to figure out how to get back on the whitelist and then limit users' use. - Karoli from IM
Wondering what the bandwidth of the "firehose" is. Tweets per day according to http://popacular.com/gigatwe... is currently about 2.5 million. If the average length is, say, 100 chars, that's 23 Kb/s on the average. There'd probably be a fair amount of overhead on top of that (JSON, whatever). - Joe Knapp
The first time you retract a previously published API, that should be the last time anyone takes you seriously. I remain amazed with all the fuckups and business idiocy that anyone still cares. Once I was converted to believing micromessaging was important to me, it became clear it was too important to let Twitter (TM) handle it. Technically, ethically, common-sensically - the company is a disaster. Killing the value-adding service I Want Sandy gangland style was icing on that cake. - Dave Slusher
Think about the number of social contracts Twitter has broken with its users. They are Lucy and we are all a bunch of Charlie Browns that never learn, trying to kick the goddamn football over and over. I'm fed up and have stopped posting into the service. I teeter on hiding all tweets via FriendFeed. The question I have: why aren't all of you fed up? - Dave Slusher
Francine, I'm archiving your tweets in XML. http://twitter.opml.org/calenda... - Dave Winer

Sending this comment via the widget and testing like feature - Corvida
just installed it and trying out to comment from it as well - thanks for finding this! - Frederic
OMG!!! - Sarah Perez
don't want to ruin the party - but it's not a great app in my opinion - the interface needs a lot more work. The ratio of information per pixel is too low. It doesn't show if a story has been liked, commented on etc. unless you mouse over it. Resizing the app only makes the fonts bigger... Alert Thingy looks a lot more promising. - Frederic
@Frederic True, but I actually like that you have a separate window for comments and likes, in order to save screen space, though I wish that particular section had the ability to resize the font also. - Corvida
Resizing is a problem - but I scan my Friendfeed items by specifically looking for 'likes' and comments - bTT doesn't help me there. It's a good effort - just hope it gets better :) - Frederic
I really wish you could go the the link of an item without having to select it fist, then clicking 'www' - Glenn Slaven
Points taken, thanks :) There are plenty of possibilities and we want to further develop it based on your feed-backs. @Frederic We will add symbols to show if an item is commented/liked in the main flow. @Corvida we wanted to add a slider for the font sizing in the panel but we were afraid it would be too much. We will try again. @Glenn, the difficulty was to make it generic for all services, we will check what is possible. - Francois Bochatay
I installed it two hours ago. It did not bring any activity. - Russellreno

The husband and I are discussing getting rid of comcast cable in favor of AppleTV.
Yeah, that's how we were thinking of it... sort of like pay-per-view VOD++ and squeezbox together. I don't think I could actually give up cable... gasp! :) - felix
Amusingly, my roommate pays >$100 month for cable. I never use it. Just watch shows on my big computer monitor. Waiting a day for Lost is a-ok with me (though I do wish there was a way to zoom through the ads!) - Adam Lasnik
Don't forget using Hulu.com to fill in the blanks. - Vince DeGeorge
Probably would work if you don't watch sports - Steve Olechowski
Thanks for the feedback. The reason we're considering it is we spent $2004 on comcast digital content in 2007. That is not including high speed internet access, which is an additional $52 per month, but Google graciously pays for so that I can work from home. We are very happy with the high speed so far. My husband is an avid pc gamer and needs a fast connection or, oops, he dead. We don't watch 99% of the content that we pay for. We don't watch sports. We're looking for ways to pay only for stuff we want. - Ginger Makela Riker
Er, so tell us what you *DO* watch... that'd be more helpful :D - Adam Lasnik

I have been using it all day - working very well. Recommended! - William Meloney
I have not. There are some plugins that I need and don't work on FF3 - Marius Ciortea
yes, i've been using beta 4 for a couple of weeks. oh, and, yes, way faster. - edythe
I don't install it before it's stable and has updated extensions I need. - Daniel Schildt
I made the switch a few days ago and so far I've been impressed - Andy Kaufman
I have been using it for months and love it. - Robert Scoble
I use the portable apps version -- it was just updated to - Steve Lynch

Waiting for extension. I use it occasionally and like it. - Russellreno
Using Flock and liking it. With all the extensions I need. - Kingsley Joseph
I'm using it since the later alpha versions. It totally rocks. I don't care about occasional crashes, that definitely helps with using early versions. It's fast, it's pretty, and it's cool to see it evolving. - sebmos
Been using Beta 4 for some time now, with extensions compatabilty check disabled. - Most extension work without any problems - Harmen Bangma
I've been using ff3 since just before b4 came out. So far so good. I started using it after I read this post on techmeme http://www.techmeme.com/080228... - Aaron Ouellette
Your question inspired me to reinstall it. Using it now. - Russellreno
I have been using firefox3beta4 for about a week or so. Stable, but if you switch make sure your extensions work with it! - Adnan
Tried it and liked it a lot. However, I depend on the Firebug plugin to work, so I got back to 2.0. As soon as Firebug works, I'll switch. - Thomas Frütel
Using beta4 with Ubuntu "Hardy Heron" with the occasional crash. - Henry Burger
@Thomas Frütel: Use Firebug 1.1 - it works with Firefox 3! ;) - sebmos
