5 Famous Inventors (Who Stole Their Big Idea) | Cracked.com
Henri Poincaré, mostly. Poincaré was the foremost expert on relativity in the late 19th century and was most likely the first person to formally present the theory of relativity. If you were Einstein and you wanted to write about relativity, you might consider meeting with the foremost expert on relativity, yes? If you answered "yes" to that question, then you're not Einstein at all. According to Einstein's famous On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies, which contains his theories on relativity, Poincaré, despite publishing 30 books and over 500 papers, is not worth mentioning. It's true, pick up Einstein's paper if you don't believe us, (you won't): Poincaré doesn't receive a single reference, unless you consider plagiarism to be some kind of indirect reference. As a matter of fact, Einstein does not reference, footnote or cite a single goddamn source in his entire paper. - Halil from Bookmarklet
@any and all physicists, is this true? never really knew... - Halil
*bump* Because of Mark's post - Halil
My research (read: googling :)) indicates Einstein officially credited Poincaré and Lorentz for contributing, and it's not like Poincaré had written "30 books and over 500 papers" on the subject before Einstein had a go. I would not agree that Einstein 'stole his big idea.' Special relativity, candidates for credit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Eivind

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

Victor Ganata
Would you rather fly the Millenium Falcon, the Enterprise, or the Heart of Gold?
Pilot, or fly in? - Pete
Or maybe the U.S.S. Planet Express Ship? - Victor Ganata
Any particular Enterprise? Not that it matters; Enterprise. - Mark H
Good question - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
The Golden Condor from The Mysterious Cities of Gold - Johnny
Heart of Gold. Or Serenity. - Jenica
I do wonder what form of faster-than-light travel would be the least likely to induce vomiting: hyperspeed, warp speed, switching on the infinite improbability drive, or shifting the entire universe. - Victor Ganata
Well, the last, in so far as the rest of the universe will be (doing its species version of) vomiting :) - Pete
The Enterprise. It's got a transporter, phasers and photon torpedoes. Except, I'd install seat belts and airbags. - Adrian
It's kind of funny that the Planet Express Ship probably has the most realistic form of faster-than-light travel. It seems to use a form of Alcubierre Drive. http://io9.com/5963263... - Victor Ganata
The Falcon or Serenity. Enterprise requires a crew of hundreds to keep running. - DJF from Android
TARDIS. - Betsy
Planet Express Ship and Heart of Gold have the most range, I think. I do know PES has traveled all the way to the edge of the universe. Millenium Falcon and Enterprise are penny-ante compared to that. - Andrew C (✔)
Heart of Gold! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
George Jetson's car. Most maneuverability - Steve C
Enterprise. It's like the Carnival Cruiseliner of space ships. - Eric
Serenity, but I'd keep the TARDIS in the hold. - Steven Perez
I know I haven't watched much "Doctor Who". I still can't think of the TARDIS as a spaceship, even though it clearly can travel through time *and* space. Douglas Adams' thinly disguised TARDIS—the Bistromath—just sounds a lot more like a spaceship for some reason, even though it's clearly a TARDIS. - Victor Ganata
It ain't a spaceship without windows. :P - Adrian
I guess the Bistromath would probably have to induce the least vomiting, though, since you *have* to eat in order to power the Bistromathic Drive. - Victor Ganata
Red Dwarf? - David Lounsbury from iPhone
Since TARDIS wasn't an option, Heart of Gold. - Heather
Well.... what about Lexx, the most powerful spaceship in the two universes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Falcon. - Melly
because that ended well. - DJF from Android
By my reckoning, at least a couple of the Enterprises didn't fare very well either. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Out of those choices, the Enterprise. Outside of those choices, either Serenity or a Minbari ship. Depending on my mood. - Spidra Webster
Definitely the Lexx! - Ken Morley
Millenium Falcon, all the way. - Bren
Kevin, they might have crashed, but there are far more survivors. - DJF from Android
Yeah, Serenity should be on that list. However, to answer the question, Heart of Gold. The probable improbability events would be SO. MUCH. FUN. - Arlan K.
Borg Cube or Reaper ship - Mo Kargas
I guess most of us liked Firefly, but why would you want to _fly_ in Serenity? The ship itself sucked! Shoot, in the Enterprise you could holodeck yourself into Serenity every time you have holodeck privileges, and when you're done you can go home to your matter replicator equipped cabin! - Andrew C (✔)
Are you kidding me? You wouldn't catch me anywhere near that holodeck! It's more deadly than the dreamatorium. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I'm sure they've worked out the bugs by now. - Andrew C (✔)
Refresh my memory: did they ever do a nested holodeck episode? (was that how one of the Moriarty episodes wrapped up?) - Andrew C (✔)
Heh, I guess, for creature comforts, you pretty much have to go with either the Enterprise or the Heart of Gold :D - Victor Ganata
Actually, in the new universe's continuity, why do they even need starships when New Scotty figured out super long range teleportation? - Andrew C (✔)
...can I just vote for serenity instead? - Colette
Meh, alternate timeline, who cares? ;) - Victor Ganata
You are not ready for the answer. - David Lounsbury
What is the appeal of flying in BSG Galactica? It was supposed to be retired to a museum, it's deliberately as un-networked as possible, it's overcrowded (I think). I mean, it's probably one of the nicer ships of the ragtag Colonial fleet, but that is a very very low bar. If Serenity is a busted VW Microbus, the Galactica is a WWII era warship with a couple of modern-ish things bolted on. (and, everyone on board wastes time cutting corners off of perfectly fine rectangular paper.) - Andrew C (✔)
Heh, it makes me want to ask a parallel question: what would probably be a more miserable experience—being a passenger on (1) the Nostromo (2) the Golgafrincham B Ark (3) the SDF-1/Macross (4) the Starship Titanic (either the HHGTTG incarnation or the Futurama one) (5) an Imperial Star Destroyer (6) the Voyager (the Federation starship) or (7) Battlestar Galactica? - Victor Ganata
Voyager, duh. it got kicked half-way across the universe, but aside from that, nothing terribly bad happened to the crew - DJF
While I'd probably prefer some of the other ships, the idea of a living ship (like Moira) seems pretty interesting... - Laura
(also the Doctor Who Titanic) -- I'd guess that overall, the Macross or Galatica would be the most miserable. Inscrutable foe, constant warfare, a good chance you'll never see home... and it lasts for ages and ages. Most of the others might be horrible, but you'll either die quickly or survive, or with Voyager, you'll forge a new life. - Jennifer Dittrich
SDF-1 managed a small somewhat livable city inside the thing... OTOH, not only was it utterly alone against overwhelming opposition - and Earth even tried to disown it - but being stuck inside a giant /transforming/ robot battleship has got to suck. Also, it can't inspire confidence when the ship's top engineers and scientists lose the fold generators and don't know why. - Andrew C (✔)
B Ark would be fine if you were a B passenger. They had no self awareness of why they sucked. - Andrew C (✔)
Heck, I'd be happy if I could pilot (or just hang out on) this Millennium Falcon: http://telstarlogistics.typepad.com/telstar... - vicster: full-bodied

Oh, I just want to know which venues to avoid right now. - Katy S
twitter. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Over what? - Steven Perez from Android
Spilling over to Facebook, too. - Victor Ganata
Oh, I should get popcorn... - Heather
From what I saw on Twitter, it doesn't look like anyone's really fighting with anyone. I do think Scoble's kind of an idiot, though. The gist of his article is "Because I follow 50,000,000 people on Twitter & Facebook, I see too many posts & want Facebook & Twitter to decide which of those posts I really should see" - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Or he could just decide to use Friendfeed for more than just the Gilmor Gang and have the power to decide for himself what he sees and doesn't see. ;-) In fact, it'll immediately cut down on the load! - Spidra Webster
Should Facebook do all my work for me because I trust them to do it? I'll discuss it more here: - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Yo, Scoble, don't bring an iphone to a phaser fight. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Robert Scoble: "We see too many of George Takei’s items [on Facebook]. They waste our time, bring us low value compared to, say, the Economist. It’s rude that he is demanding that every one of his items gets to our screens." http://scobleizer.com/2012... - Victor Ganata
Actually, it's the same old arguments recycled endlessly. Four years ago it was FF that had the signal to noise problem according to Robert. I would like to see some actually solutions being pushed rather than the same old 'hands-in-the-air-it's-a-problem-someone-fix-it' articles. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
For example: http://friendfeed.com/scoblei... here Robert is extolling the virtues of FF - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Actually, I think Robert thinks Facebook's throttling of posts unless you pay to promote your own post is a good solution, while George Takei thinks it's an absolutely terrible solution. - Victor Ganata
I guess it depends on what you think Facebook is/should be for. And I don't blame people for being confused about that, at all. I mean, when you think about the number of changes of use, TOS and complete about-turns FB has done in the last few years it's amazing ppl still use it at all. Of course, I confidently predict that the next big thing is already breathing down FB's neck. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Pay-to-post sounds great for a marketing system. Doesn't seem so great for entertainment purposes (see broadcast TV), and it's probably really terrible for informational purposes. - Victor Ganata
Well, at least Robert believes in recycling. Even if it's just his old posts. - Steven Perez
+1000 WoH. It is a rerun of the same Scoble "noise" argument. One reason I don't follow the guy anymore. - Mo Kargas
After all these years, and all the accounts on various social media sites, it's amazing how Robert Scoble still doesn't understand social media. It's not how many people you follow, it's who you follow. Follow with a purpose, follow only those whose content actually interests you. Instead of complaining that the people he follows contribute low quality content, he needs to stfu and... more... - April Russo
Totally agree April. If he doesn't want rubbish, he should pick and choose accordingly. - Mo Kargas
Didn't we all debate signal, noise and filtering when we first dialed up BBSs? You want to broadcast use a blog. Join a social network follow and get followed, interaction is baked into the name. I simply fucking love the tweets that roll by on a busy night on twitter. If your biggest question when you join is how the filters work, you're doing it so very wrong - WarLord
The benefit of not being subbed to either? Completely missed it... The bliss, my friends, is stashed on Ignorance Street - Johnny from iPhone
I don't think I even really know who George Takei is apart from a few things friends have shared on Facebook. - Melly
reminds me of AJ =) - sofarsoShawn from iPhone

This is exactly the reason why I think it's best that abstention is a valid voting decision. I would never advocate that people should just go to the ballot box even if they feel that choosing a candidate violates their own values and sense of integrity. If you really despise both (or even all) candidates, then I agree that it's best not to vote.
My point is you should still go and spoil your ballet. To many people fight and die to the opportunity to walk into the booth, let alone who to vote for. It sends a more powerful message than not going... That you're WILLING to be involved in the process albeit you don't have a suitable candidate - Johnny from iPhone
There's more on the ballot than just the presidential race. Of course, it's entirely possible to go and vote for the other things and leave the presidential part blank. - Spidra Webster
Is it possible to write-in a candidate? - rönin
It's entirely proper, Johnny, to go and not fill in the ballot. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I disagree. Since not showing up and spoiling your ballot have the *exact same* consequence, I see no difference. Sure, feel free to do what you want to satisfy your conscience, but don't force other people to agree with your own values. - Victor Ganata
When 40% don't even show up, it's easy to ignore them... If 40% showed up but spoiled their ballot in protest then that would send a message. - Johnny from iPhone
It's a secret ballot. Voting records are confidential. I don't know this for sure, but enumerating those who actually don't show up sure sounds like a breach of confidentiality to me. Sure, you can do exit polls, but I have a feeling that those who go to a polling place to spoil their ballot are more likely to avoid answering an exit poll. - Victor Ganata
What? Who said anything about breaching confidentiality? Along with the total number of votes and which candidate got how many, they also record the number of spoiled ballot papers. If the number of spoiled ballots was around 20-40% then the politicians might take notice. I said nothing about counting or marking individual ballots. Look up "Residual Votes". - Johnny from iPhone
Also: Number Of Registered Voters + Of Voting Age - Total Votes Cast (including Residual) = Number Of People Who Didn't Show Up... - Johnny from iPhone
I believe my precinct tallies who takes a ballot. Certainly how many ballots are taken. In the primaries, the party chosen is public record, much to the dismay of the privacy-concerned. - Tinfoil 2.0
You can count registered voters, and you can count number of ballots. But the number of eligible voters is always an estimate. - Victor Ganata
I see where my original point may have been taken wrongly. This is an aspirational wish. People should decide wether to vote or not but it would be NICE if a larger percentage took a more aggressive than passive resistance. - Johnny from iPhone

Apple: If You’re Seeing Purple Haze In iPhone 5 Photos, Hold Your Phone At Another Angle – The Consumerist  (Your holding it wrong... again.)
"Most small cameras, including those in every generation of iPhone, may exhibit some form of flare at the edge of the frame when capturing an image with out-of-scene light sources. This can happen when a light source is positioned at an angle (usually just outside the field of view) so that it causes a reflection off the surfaces inside the camera module and onto the camera sensor. Moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or shielding the lens with your hand, should minimize or eliminate the effect. There you have it. You brought this purple haze upon yourself." - Me from Bookmarklet

Using Google to search Friendfeed, is seriously inferior. - April Russo
How do I ... +1 April's comment? - Louis Gray
Yesterday I was looking for a link I know I shared here, facebook, and on the DonationCoder forum. Search was down here, Google failed to find it here or on the web, facebook search has always been a joke, DonationCoder search, powered by ZillaRank, won. It's a sad day when an amateur modification to the world's worst forum search (SMF) can kick the asses of both Google and Friendfeed. - April Russo

Here’s the thing. When you use Google Maps, if you zoom in or out, Google downloads new maps to show you the tiles. These are called raster graphics, which are bitmaps because they correspond bit-for-bit with an image displayed on a screen. If you’ve ever seen a file with a .BMP extension, that’s an example of raster graphics. But Apple uses vector graphics. Unlike raster graphics, vector graphics don’t come in files that correspond bit-by-bit with the same image seen on a screen. Rather, vector graphics are made up of mathematical expressions that tell iOS 6 Maps how to draw the map. And since vector maps allow you to scale by any amount without degrading quality - Winckel

OH: Why do Americans expect the US to change in 4 years when they pay to go to school for 4 years and still confuse "your" vs "you're"?

Do not ask me to schedule meetings, tell me your calendars are up to date and then for every time slot I propose tell me that you have a scheduling conflict that's not on your calendar.
