friendfeedCommentAnchor - New User script & Bookmarklet to add a permalink to each comment -
Show all
friendfeedCommentAnchor [v0.1.0] - - A user script, a bookmarklet and an alternative configuration userscript (has autoCommentAnchor turned ON). To add a permalink to each comment. The hyperlinked text default is "#" (you can change it in the Configuration section to "permalink", "linky", etc in the user script). Works in single post and stream modes. Tested on Firefox and Safari. - Micah
Special Note ~ Post image: NOT A HASH TAG :) - Micah
I started the group ffhacks to house a concise listing of user scripts: . If you have a script that works on the current version of FriendFeed, and you're its author, write a comment on with the link and I'll share the original friendfeed post to the group. - Micah
Does it only work to other users with the script enabled? - Andrew Trinh
The anchor is the comment <div> container id which has been there all along; there simply has not been a user interface to conveniently access it. So yes, a URL with the anchor will work for anyone regardless of script usage (tested in Firefox & Safari). - Micah
Wow! Great work. - Svartling from iPhone
Thank you, Svartling :) - Micah
This is awesome Micah, well done! :D It's really non-intrusive too. - Mitch
splendid work Micah! - vijay
Thanks, guys. - Micah
fantastic. precisely what I had in mind. only tested the bookmarklet so far...I'll have to check out the userscript later. - chrisofspades
chrisofspades - right on :) - Micah
i like bookmarklets. - Franc, a rememberer
everybody subscribe to Micah's ffscripts group! - Franc, a rememberer
Hi, Franc :) - Micah
Hey Micah. how's it going? ;) - Franc, a rememberer
Thank you, Micah. So you listened? <> - ianf ⌘
ianf, yep. I try anyway. I remember one or two conversations you had anchors - I've wanted access them for a while too. Cheers! - Micah
#hashanchors should have been there by default, so that you could spend your time on more creative things rather than fixing FF. In fact, absence of this key element of hypertext, granular addressability, tells me that FFeeders really do not care for comments - they're ffodder to the OPs, which are the only ones that rank anything in the hierarchy of submissions around here. I don't... more... - ianf ⌘
Great feature Micah Wittman thanks. another bookmarklets suggestion plz browse this: - Nimaa
Installed the script and like it. - Miss Elle
Thanks, Miss Elle. Take a look or even subscribe to to check out more scripts. - Micah
*BUMP* for John E. - Micah from iPhone
How did I miss this? - AJ Batac
Just don't let it happen again. :D - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Very cool! - Mitchell Tsai

You can now get a daily or weekly email digest for anybody's feed on FriendFeed. You'll get a daily or weekly email with the most popular posts from that person's feed. To get the email, click the "Email/IM" link at the top of anyone's feed, and select the "Best of day" or "Best of week" email option.

You can see all of your email settings at - Bret Taylor
Thanks Bret! :) - Matt Ruiz
Thanks to Kevin for doing a great design for what turned out to be a more complex set of UI options than we had originally anticipated, and thanks to Tudor for implementing the email backend. - Bret Taylor
Great! Thanks! Love FF! - Scott Monaco
I now get the FriendFeed Feedback posts as a Best of Day email so it doesn't fill up my feed, but I don't miss feedback. I also set up a "Best of Day" email for my "Technology people" friend list so I get a pretty good overview of tech news every day via email. - Bret Taylor
This is a really cool idea Bret, I wish you can make that an RSS feed option as well. I'd be much more likely to read summaries in RSS than in email. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Lovely. Thanks guys. - Mitchell Tsai
Casey: Thanks for the tip. What's the 7 before the "?" mean in the URL? The number of likes or replies needed to be included? - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
this is killer, the random influx of email during the day was kinda getting fail-ish. I love the daily digest. - Drew Lucas
Very cool! Any way to get archives of previous months? (especially helpful for those of us who leave the internet for weeks at a time...) - Mitchell Tsai
WOW. that's really helpful! - K.D.
Looks like a great addition for those who are not embedded on the site. Nice intro. - Louis Gray
Cool! - Josh Haley
Ahsan: it is somewhat random right now when the emails are sent, but we built in the backend capability to control what time they are sent, and we plan on exposing that control to users in the future. Right now, it is kind of random - sorry! - Bret Taylor
Cool! can i get a daily or weekly email digest for the "Saved searches"? - 0M0M from email
This will be incredibly useful. Thanks to all involved in the design and execution. - Kathy Fitch
Nice addition! - Michael Fidler
But what exactly is "Best"? Is it anything that has a certain number of likes/comments? - Laura Norvig
@Bret LOL THAT WAS MY PROJECT! I will release it tomorrow. But you've also did it and killed my friendfeed application **sigh** But mine has multi-reporting weekly-daily-monthly at the same time and adjustable entry count! - Alp
@Bret please consolidate me or I won't code new apps with you api! :-) - Alp
Alp: we were not trying to withhold data. Later today the documentation will be updated to reflect the ability to obtain "Best of" for users. The feed id will be USERNAME/summary/N (similar to "Best of" for lists) - Benjamin Golub
Hi Ben, that is pretty funny, I tried that URL earlier today to see if it has been secretly released :) - Paul Kinlan
Bret: While Twitter struggle to keep their fail whale under control, you guys are developing stuff like this. Amazing - Thanks! - Jim Connolly
awesome feature, this will be highly useful for my corporate group ideas / content sharing; projects, etc.... THANK YOU :) - Susan Beebe
Great work. I especially like that it works on lists too. - Meryn Stol
my inbox might say different, but I like that :-) - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Wow, this is really neat! And it links into the idea I expressed earlier, re: reducing signup friction / enabling limited guest privileges. Imagine if I could embed one of my FF rooms on my personal web site, and enable people to subscribe to that feed by e-mail with just a couple of clicks... rather than saying "you can get e-mail notifications but you have to sign up for Friendfeed first." "sign up" -- though admirably lightweight on FF -- is still a huge barrier. - Adam Lasnik
is there a love button cause I dont like this option I LOVE this option..great work guys - (jeff)isageek
Three options I would like (1) Can I select "top 100" instead of "top 30"? (2) Could I select both "best of day" and "best of week"? (3) How about older timeperiods? I'd love to get an e-mail with stuff from last week or Mar 2009? Start & end dates? Anything to help me read FriendFeed off-line would be great since I spend long periods off-line at festivals (especially during summer time) or overseas. - Awesome job guys! - Mitchell Tsai
So this works on groups too, cool! But we still cannot see Best of for groups on the site on friends lists. :-( I have several friends lists that include just groups and when I select to view the best of the page it's empty (even though if I got to the individual best of for those groups there are entries there). - Kol Tregaskes
does anyone know of a web service that can do this? (I'm thinking weekly email updates of my favorite feeds/people) I don't think there's anything like friendfeed .. - Franc, a rememberer
That's a cool feature - Xitong Liu
Emails no longer get sent except for Subscriptions. The last non-sub email I recieved was July 15th, 2011. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I still get them. - AJ Batac
I get these every day. - Me
I still get it - AJ Batac
*jealous* I no longer get anything but subscription emails. - Bruce Lewis
Following US Politics that way ever since and the emails always went through: so happy this never went off course and kept a valuable record of these threads. - Zu from AOD

FriendFeed API v2 officially launching -
"Two weeks ago, we launched version 2 of the FriendFeed API in beta. Since then, we've watched how developers have been using the API and collected a lot of their feedback. We've implemented some changes, and now, we're ready to remove the beta label!" - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
A two weeks beta in the 2.0 era sounds almost blasphem! Congrats! - Simone Ruffilli
Congrats to Ben and Gary for all their hard work getting this out the door. And thanks to all the developers who have been sending us great feedback the past couple weeks. - Bret Taylor /-) - Nicolas Voisin
Bret - Think we'd all be interested in a longer list as more apps make use of the API. Great stuff - Charlie Anzman

Ross and Dan made this video to illustrate the advanced technology we use behind the scenes at FriendFeed. (Ross and Dan, you are amazing - I can't believe how awesome this thing turned out) - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
How very creative. This is very fluid and cool. - Louis Gray
OK, not exactly what I was expecting, but very cool. - Kevin Arth
Anyone have the video somewhere other than Youtube? it's banned here in Turkey and I can't wait until we get home (next month) to watch it!! - Chris Myles
This is awesome! - Christopher Chung
with a community like this - you just can't roll-it into f.b.. keep the dream alive! - michael sean wright
:O - Josh Haley
Amazing, thanks for that! - dkb
According to Ross, they used about 1030 individual pictures in the final version. Stop motion is a lot of work :) - Bret Taylor
Sure, sure--give away all the secrets. (Are those Lego dudes union?) - Kathy Fitch
very creative. wonder how long it took to do that stop-action? - berchman
Ross's best work so far ! great job Ross - goutham
Major props to Ross and Dan. FriendFeed lives on - Shane
That's priceless. Great job, guys. - John Craft
This is superb. I just showed it to my 5 year old son who enjoys Lego and has already taken some great photos, including one or two of his toys. So now he has the seed of the idea that, in time, he could take multiple stills and put them together to make moving pictures. Thank you very much for posting it and giving me and him that opportunity. Maybe, he might use FriendFeed one day too! - John W Lewis
Great project! - Anne Bouey
AWESOME! - Kevin Fox
I think they need to make a full stop-motion version of the Matrix in legos. Now THAT would be awesome. I wonder what bullet-time looks like in LEGO? - Bret Taylor
i'd pay to see the stop animation lego matrix, but not the sequels - patrick

Improve FriendFeed for your friends by recommending subscriptions - FriendFeed Blog -
Improve FriendFeed for your friends by recommending subscriptions - FriendFeed Blog
"As a devoted FriendFeed user, I have tried to convince all of my friends and family to join the site, but a handful of them never quite got their accounts set up properly. With our new Recommend friends feature, I can fix their FriendFeed experience by recommending subscriptions to them." Try it out at - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
Excellent feature, gooood idea! - Susan Beebe
Very cool =) - FFing Enigma
Cool stuff. - Mike Bracco
Uh, it tells me that Scoble, among others, could use the recommendations. WTF? Perhaps I have too few subscriptions for this to work. - Fred Yankowski
more good stuff - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Finally a better recommendation - directeur
I'd still love an "e-mail this item" feature, similar to Google Reader. - Jesse Stay
great idea! - Edwin Khodabakchian
Cool! Beats the heck out of #followfriday!! - Larry Hawes
What am I supposed to get when I click the 'recommend friends' link on someone's pop-up? Currently, the popup just goes away and I don't get directed anywhere else. - FFing Enigma
Fred: yah, unfortunately, you can only recommend people who you are subscribed you and who are also subscribed back to you. - Bret Taylor
Mark, I didn't submit a bug report since what is supposed to happen wasn't actually spelled out on the blog post or here; this might be the intended functionality... I hope not, but it's possible. - FFing Enigma
Tina: it is supposed to pop up a dialog. Sorry for the trouble - we will look into it. - Bret Taylor
At first I did not understand this, but now that I am checking it out, it is brilliant and addresses much of what we have complained about. NOW what will we complain about? - Liza + = ?
Just to confirm Bret, the first image in the blog post is what the pop up is supposed to look like, right? Because that's nothing like what the page looks like.... - FFing Enigma
I notice that new subscriptions are automatically added to one's home feed. I consider that kind of a bug. - Meryn Stol
Tina: yes, that is correct. The page is just a list of people that we think could use some friend recommendations since they have few subscriptions. If you click on any of the "Recommend" links on that page, you will see the same, standard "Recommend friends" dialog. - Bret Taylor
User-driven...I like. - Josh Haley
Where would we find recommendations that others suggest to us? - Fred Yankowski
@Bret, who receive the recommandation see also who is the recommender? - Roberto
Fred: You will receive an email as well as a notification on the top of your feed. - Ross Miller
Roberto: yes, they see who recommended - Bret Taylor
Not getting the pop-over when I click 'recommend' on the page either... FFox 3.0.12 if it's relevant. - FFing Enigma
Bret, if I recommend friends to people who haven't signed in for a long time, will they get email? A lot of my bored friends are not active FF users I think. (quite logical) - Meryn Stol
and can I see who has accepted my recommendation? - Roberto
Roberto: You won't be notified if they accept/deny as the recommender. - Ross Miller
Ross: Ah, it just appeared on my feed. Cool. (And thanks Meryn) - Fred Yankowski
Meryn: yes, they will get an email with your recommendations - Bret Taylor from email
Bret, I accidently just received an email with previous recommendations. I had already viewed them through the web-interface. But indeed, it's there. Email looks good too, as I expected of course. :) - Meryn Stol
hey Robert Scoble....I have a trade send my name to all your friends...i send your name to all of my friends for the rest of my life.... - Bob DeMarco
I would like that deal, too, Scoble. I like this a lot. - Ben Hanten
Bob: I charge $1 per friend. :-) just kidding, but the UI makes it so hard to send you to more than a few people. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Bret: You guys rock! This is so much better than FollowFriday, which I recommended just a while back. Now, I'm waiting for some recommendation emails! :) - Mahendra (SkepticGeek)
If there’s something about friends and family not having their account set up properly, I’d prefer a way to recommend them the streams they forgot to add. For example, I could tell them “You forgot to add your Digg stream and your fourth and eight blog. Here’s the link.” Then he could just click the recommendation and had it set up easily. - Natsuki Seika
Definitely better than #followfriday. - Bernie Goldbach
As I have lots of subscriptions the pop-up window is *really* slow and always has been since the new UI (same thing for amending friends lists). :-( I like the feature though, so I could make a new friends list of my most recommended users and use that each time for each user? - Kol Tregaskes
Loic Le Meur
Friendfeed Is Going To Kill Google Reader, Not Twitter -
Interesting. Very interesting. - Warner Crocker
Very True Loic you made it very clear how easy it is to follow the comments!! - Paul
FF only works as a feed reader if you like "river of news". If you don't, then it isn't good enough. - Ian Betteridge from twhirl
I will not follow you on that one. A think both have very different missions. GReader really is a tools while FF is also a communication device - Eric Sausse from twhirl
it has already replaced it for, right now I'm going through some 4 days old posts in gReader, I tend to stop by there less and less - Dobromir Hadzhiev from twhirl
With out google reader or twitter, FF would not be what it is today. Remember it's a big circle jerk. I do not see FF killing google reader nor twitter any time soon. - Mike Fruchter
when will we be able to like comments? :) - Tim Hoeck
FF certainly doesn't have enough people talking about every single topic I subscribe to. I'm glad you guys aren't preachers at a church, the end of the world would have supposedly been last week. - Shawn Farner
For me, Google Reader is an even more essential part than Twitter of my FriendFeed experience. So ... as said before... FriendFeed will _not_ kill Google Reader or Twitter, etc. What is happening, however, is that often, the items in Google Reader are arriving after I've already read them via FriendFeed. - Louis Gray
These things always go on through June. Then we have the killing. Or something like that. - Michael Markman
Eric Sausse, you have a good point, you cannot add just a feed in Friendfeed, they first need to be registered there and added their feed. But FF could add that very easily, adding feeds from people who are not in FF. Then it would put pressure on them to finally jump into the bandwagon - Loic Le Meur
I agree with Louis & others - GR feeds FF for me. - R. Ferguson
You can "just add" a feed in FF -- check out the imaginary friends feature - Brian Sullivan
FF lets you publish your *filtered* google reader shared items, together with other stuff, to make an impression of you and your interests. That's how I see FF: almost a snapshot of a personality. For me GReader is a tool that you can use to filter items into your FF. - IanBlackburnold
Brian Sullivan, thanks I was wondering the imaginary friend thing! now I know. Here we go, no need for Google Reader anymore... - Loic Le Meur
yeah, I wont use FF for all of my feeds, I am subscribe to way too many and have already my routine with it. FF is more of a discovery + conversation experience for me - Gilbert Corrales from twhirl
Ian, right: I don't want people to form an impression of me based on my subscriptions to D:Listed, TMZ, The Superficial, and Perez Hilton, unless they are really really important, then I'll share the story. And now I've tipped my hand. But anyway: there's a community for feed discovery already: Tuluu. GReader + FF is about what's interesting from the feeds. - Mark Trapp
I'm with the GReader feeding FF crowd on this one. I use GReader to get the news I want and FF to share it and create conversation. FF is a great discovery tool but I still read a ton of stuff in my feeds before it appears on FF. The UI is set up better for conversation rather than just information digesting IMO. - Devlin Dunsmore
@devlin I agree... i'm finding it very hard to read pages and pages of link/comments on FF. - Gaurav Sikka
I hope FriendFeed doesn't kill Google Reader. I find them both vital but I couldn't substitute one for the other. - Kevin Fox
Again, this isn't going to happen. Services don't always have to exist just to kill other services. Especially ones that do different things - MG Siegler
its funny season on t'internets - Jamie
FriendFeed adds much value for me, but the only thing it's killing is time and maybe Scoble's marriage. I wish Loic would work on something more productive like getting Apple to make Seesmic videos work on the iPhone!:-) - Robert Seidman
We like having a choice for everything we do, but on the other hand, we expect (and sometimes hope) one choice to kill another. No wonder the world can't live in peace all together ;) - Turker Keskinpala
I never liked Google Reader's UI, but I feel right at home with FriendFeed. - James Rishabh Mishra
So true, but time flies too fast when im on friendfeed, i cant stop reading and sending messages! Great conversations though! - Scott Purdie
going to have to disagree ... couldn't possibly get through all my feeds via FF - just too many for the FF interface - timepilot
Google Reader is a feed reader, FriendFeed is a feed generator. Sorry, they serve completely different purposes (at least to me). No killing here. - dgw
friendfeed doesn't allow me to categorize sources, nor can I tag or flag specific feed items in a way that makes it easy for me to refer back to later. for al the hype about friend feed being where the "conversation", it seems like a really poor utility for that. I see that on this blog post alone, the "conversation" is distributed across friendfeed through google shared reader posts, twitter references, disquss comments. The techcrunch "Twitter" post is even a better example. fractured conversation. - bernie
agreed FF no replacement for reader - ben rogers from twhirl
When will folks realize FF is something NEW? IT isnt goign to kill much of the other stuff. - Soulhuntre from twhirl
would love keyboard shortcuts for FF too - Loic Le Meur
FF is useful as a human filter on the old echo chamber of tech but could never replace a feed reader. gReader shared items into FF is part of the signal for me, but, not a replacement. Much like RSSMeme and it's FF filter. And then there's the twisty bit where I read FF via a feed readier in the first place ... - Ashton
I'm still new to FF, but I like the search function that Google provides to even the oldest of the feeds. Not sure I would want the number of feeds I subscribe to coming through to FF. I like the combination of posts and conversation along with a few updates from other services like flickr or Digg. I think the 'conversation' would be seriously degraded with the addition of a number of RSS feeds. I would need to see how well FF handles growth before moving from Google Reader. - Brenda Young
I think you were right. #humdaybumpday - Ahmet Yükseltürk

FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more -
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: - 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 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 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

thanks.... checked in yesterday, so that is why I am asking ;-) - Jeroen De Miranda
you'd think facebook's datacentre would have decent connectivity - Kevin Marks
Kevin: yeah, except I'm afraid to jack in! :-) - Robert Scoble
Only if you connect "Open Compute" compatible devices! ;) - Daniel Chow
Last United flight I did had no WiFi. Few weeks ago. - Keith Teare

Google has a key to the future of social. The Address Book in Android. Social IS Mobile and the Address book is the graph. - Keith Teare
yes Keith, exactly. Android is a huge source of useful information - Kevin Marks
Social isn't primarily related to search. That is a blind alley. its about sharing and communicating. - Keith Teare
Elgan talks about "the party" - Jerome Hughes
good remark on UStream still using Flash.... my MBA is running hot, 76 degrees Celsius right now... - Jeroen De Miranda was saying youtube will commission - Kevin Marks
Youtube vs Netflix- who will dominate streaming? - Tim Jones
Tim: both for different reasons. YouTube is my favorite, though, because I'm a media producer. - Robert Scoble
nah, Google wants more Android apps stores out there- more people to access Google search - Tim Jones
where's Apple streaming? - Tim Jones
depends how you define streaming... Apple does stream to AppleTV - Kevin Marks
Apple streaming (whatever it is) vs Netflix vs Youtube? how many Apple TV sold vs maybe Xbox that also streams Netflix? - Tim Jones
im getting my android apps from the amazon marketplace already, and they took my credit card to give me my "free" angry birds rio, very clever - Julio Fernandez

good that google is thinking long term? - Tim Jones
surface - Jerome Hughes
microsoft still most profitable of all tech companies - Tim Jones
Tim: I like that about Google. But Microsoft has TONS of R&D too (which led to surface and Kinect) - Robert Scoble
Kinect was acquired, no? - Ian McGee
Ian: the hardware was licensed from a startup in Israel. - Robert Scoble
(But agree in general; R&D is good) - Ian McGee
But they were already doing lots of work on new input methods. - Robert Scoble
& IBM does more basic research by far for this reason, hence Watson - Jerome Hughes
Amazingly MS left Kinect open -- that's driving lots of activity. Witness implementation of Google April fools joke - Ian McGee
Ian agreed. - Robert Scoble
MSFT getting smarter about open source - Kevin Marks
Apple's sterile, totalitarianism gives me the scary chill vs more fun, woolly, throw it in the wall and see what's sticks approach - Tim Jones

you mean Midi output, Nir? - Kevin Marks
MS was concerned about Linux going back to the 1997 timeframe - Michael Krigsman

I have trouble blogging on the iPad. But I don't use the Bluetooth keyboard - Francine Hardaway
BMW had a L7 - Jerome Hughes
Windows L8 even sounds great. - Ward Mundy
Different circles - the last 4 people whose machines I jumped on had IE6 :-p - Denise Howell
not sure if I get Ditto yet. - Jamie
Jamie: the UI needs a little bit more work to expose what's interesting there. - Robert Scoble
ditto needs an iPhone and Facebook... - Kevin Marks
Denise: I only talk to the tip of the spear. :-) - Robert Scoble
I hope you fixed that for them, Denise - Kevin Marks
The Xfinity apps from Comcast are pretty good. - Alex de Soto
I have an iPhone and Facebook. What I need are friends :) - Jamie
Kevin: there are lots of computers in conference rooms, lobbies, etc that aren't upgradeable by users and no one cares about them to upgrade them. - Robert Scoble
It's becoming one channel, with multiple windows. - Aron Michalski
Someone should caption you with your (er) hand up Robert: "Talk to the Tip!" Re fixing, yes, immediately. - Denise Howell
Imagine; we've reached the point where we want less channels. - Aron Michalski
My gogoinflight+iPad experience last week didn't work, the iPad choked on that connection. Also the hotel's later. Annoying; was glad I had the Air along too. (The good news is both fit comfortably in a purse.) - Denise Howell
I know, Denise. I have both and take them both, too. But that's a problem - Francine Hardaway
They are protecting the interests of the corporation they are part of. - Aron Michalski
the chap gave me a channel list, and I had no idea which show is on which channel, as I use a DVR - Kevin Marks
The network blocking/non-neutrality actions of the providers will be the big issue. - Aron Michalski
Basic TV and Fat pipe for Google TV is what I have. - clive boulton
I get 22 channels over_the_air. - coldbrew
AT&T would give me free install only if I chose a TV package. I'll cancel it. - Kevin Marks
Even the Time-Warner on demand has half of the primetime offerings, then you have to shift to a different provider on their internet connection to watch Fox/ABC on demand. - Aron Michalski
make a good app and pay 30% and relinquish your direct relationship with the customer ..... any thoughts on this ?? - studentforce
The cable company bundling packages are non-sensical. - coldbrew
espn3 is an exception for sports games....watched bowl games that I couldnt get with my limited basic - dlature
It is signatory issues... Robert is right until the production structure of content is changed to incorporate ads/retail in (and hypervideo will do this) they will shift over to the new model... and like Apple, as they just set the precedent, they will take a piece of the revenue from integrated retail). - davidlee
It's the value of intent over the value of "cache" there was a story earlier this week of a girl who sells 100,000 copies of her fiction through kindle without a publisher - Stephen Pickering
Yes, she writes vampire crap for teens, apparently. - coldbrew
The Last Mile is so important, and Comcast is my only choice - Stephen Pickering

Superbowl parties, Oscar parties - Kevin Marks
No Reservations - Jim Posner
Comcast keeps sending me notices about DLing Bill Maher shows (like I don't know I'm DL ing them)> - coldbrew
What? Bill Maher is on HBO. Huh? - Stephen Pickering
Idol on HD; kinda like manchego Cheetos. - Aron Michalski
Last mile spectrum issues need FCC solution (Fat Pipe, Fat Chance) - clive boulton
Comcast needs HBO exactly like iOS needs Amazon and Google. - Stephen Pickering
I found the 720p quality on AppleTV better than the HD on the DVR - less compressed looking - Kevin Marks
AJE shows there is a market for serious news on devices. I hope startups move into this space. - Jim Posner
Yes. But, they are getting DMCAs from HBO b/c im on the torrent (and so are ~300 other people). - coldbrew
Ah, IC. - Stephen Pickering
news consumption is always "bursty" - Jim Posner
Apple's pricing is simply stunning. It's flabbergasting the market. - coldbrew
JohnB echos Eric Ries #leanstartup learn from MVP (min value prod) - clive boulton
lovin' the Chartbeat possibilities & Borthwick is right it is about complex television / film production structure. - davidlee
coldbrew: Did you mean flummoxing the market? - Alex de Soto
de Soto: Perhaps. - coldbrew
This has always been about art. What's the point in having the hardware unless you're creating content of interest? - Aron Michalski
I have to choose the ipad for the same reason I've chosen the custom machine up 'til this point. - coldbrew
Robert's right - Stephen Pickering
Robert: My thoughts EXACTLY. The Kinect is definitely a top-notch product. Thing is that Kinect is a Prime Sense development. - Nir Ben Yona
I think they could build the company around Kinect - Francine Hardaway
xPad x everything - Stephen Pickering
A whole company around a UI component? - coldbrew
I mean re-build the company by letting those old divisions die - Francine Hardaway
And yes, a whole company around UI. That is what APple's doing - Francine Hardaway
Or maybe it's UX. At bottom, that's what all companies are built around - Francine Hardaway
The innovator's dilemma is alive and well. - coldbrew
Give me a tool to create. Give me a tool that will push me beyond my current work. The pen, the typewriter, the computer. The will to write and the ability to say something has to be there; the tool can take you to the next level. - Aron Michalski
Talked about Roku+Amazon Prime yet? - Denise Howell
my boys are playing minecraft, not xbox - Kevin Marks
Enterprise can use Kinect to videoconference - Francine Hardaway

Marks: I have to believe your kids are above average. Not to be a snob about it. - coldbrew
wish apple tv ran iOS or had safari - Jim Posner
sure, I'm scobleing... but MineCraft is a huge phenomenon - Google should fund an Android port - Kevin Marks
the browser doesn't work on the TV - Jamie
I thought the PS3 had a browser that worked pretty well. - Jim Posner
i'm not even convinced apps will - Jamie
I have a PS3 and browsing on it is just terrible Jim. control pad as an input device really isn't ideal - Jamie
ffs, everyone send your good health vibes to Borthwick. - coldbrew
really wish I could browse on my iPad and flick to the tv - Jim Posner
The Apple iOS device platform is also very adaptable or extendable. Medical devices, sensors, etc. will easily hook up. I'm sure Android and MS will move in that direction. - Alex de Soto
the Quick Bar - Jamie
shows you trends and promoted tweets - Jamie
new Twitter App on Android UX blows - clive boulton
i agree Robert....hate it - dlature
annoying ...really annoying - davidlee
it's so annoying .. moved to echofon - Naor Mark
Totally agree with Robert. A petition has been created to remove this - Mark Krynsky
it is very instrusive. - dlature
Tweetdeck for Android; good stuff. - Aron Michalski
it will be gone. If we all hate it they will kill it - Tina Chase Gillmor
Seesmic for Android got a nice update this week - Kevin Marks
Robert will pay for the rest of us. - Aron Michalski
Borthwick reminds me of the trade federation from Dune :) - coldbrew
sry man - coldbrew
Hate that part of the new Twitter app too. They did add some interesting features though. You can turn "Ignore local trends" in the settings and turn off pinstripes, whatever that is. - Alex de Soto
I was happily using the official Twitter client until this update and I'm sure that myself and others will now explore all the 3rd party alternatives again....not good for them. - Mark Krynsky
Hillary says VoA should become more like AJE. Wonder if the US could produce a credible network. - Jim Posner
I really like the new Echofon Pro. - Nir Ben Yona
Hey! I just turned off pinstripes and local trends and the little black bar went away! - Alex de Soto
The spice must flow. - coldbrew
Time to check out Seesmic or Echofon (easier than petitions) - clive boulton
Interesting Alex...I turned off local trends yesterday but it had no effect. Pinstripes I didn't try but will now. - Mark Krynsky
Oh no! The little black bar didn't really go away. :( Sorry Mark - Alex de Soto
local trends are an optional setting. - Mark Krynsky
Do the deal sites have twitter feeds with substance? - coldbrew
Mine doesn't have it, guess I haven't updated yet - Stephen Pickering
pinstripes - Aron Michalski
it doesn't remove it, just make the annoyance local :) - Naor Mark
Yep! Sorry. I thought I'd give it a shot. - Alex de Soto
No Alex...those settings do not kill the bar... - Mark Krynsky
PER device. - Aron Michalski
it makes the annoyance less local - Kevin Marks
People that pay more than $55/ device for 3g are lost. - coldbrew
Right Kevin - Alex de Soto
right. and i agree with Nir, echofon looks nice... - Naor Mark
I use Echofon on mac now - Kevin Marks
Get better, Borthwick.! - coldbrew
Mobile = combining life with technology, creativity with technology, a huge boost in productivity. - Stephen Pickering
Pick it up at the Austin store..maybe I can help..walking distance from me Robert. - Jim Posner
I checked our echofon for mac but it doesn't work well with Hebrew (important for me) i'm using YoruFukurou mainly - Naor Mark
Scoble: If you talk about apps anymore, I'm coming to your house to shut you up :) - coldbrew
Obviously, kidding - coldbrew
apps Schmapps, we need web too. ditto needs a web app - Kevin Marks
Kevin...and Android! - Mark Krynsky
ditto - Jamie
Marks: You are always the voice of reason here. - coldbrew
YoruFukurou - tongue twister - clive boulton
Thank you Doc, Thank you Kevin, John and Steve! - Aron Michalski
Thanks, as always, you guys. - coldbrew
(and Tina...) - Aron Michalski
Almost inspired to buy iPad 2, but living in hope GoogleIO gifts a Tablet - clive boulton
I'll get one but not when the store opens. - Aron Michalski

Gillmor Gang recording live 1PM Pacific
On Gillmor Gang in 5 minutes - Kevin Marks
Get ready for today's GillmorGang - - Cliff Gerrish
feedbacccck!!! ** echo*** - Susan Beebe
Ah, my day just got better. Gillmor Gang is just firing up now. - Karoli
GillmorGang w/ Paul Buchheit, Danny Sullivan, Kevin Marks and Scoble - - Cliff Gerrish
When is Verizon going to give up CDMA for LTE? - Cliff Gerrish
Danny is missing the point that because it is open and can compete it will force the US carriers to start offering features to compete across the carrier vendors - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
just caught a great screenshot of Steve at his command center. :) - Karoli
Microsoft smartphone maker is HTC - Ballmer had it at CES- not sure of the model either - Susan Beebe
Steve's bank of monitors is cool although he needs liker picture in picture or something. LOL - Jim Turner
I think it was a Ballmer 3.0 - Cliff Gerrish
LOL :D It should say, "Bing, Bing, Bing" every time it starts up - Susan Beebe
HTC HD2 - Rob La Gesse
Funny. We're using Nexus One on AT&T and it's anything but a brick. In fact, I'm not sure I've even noticed that 3G isn't available. I previously had another Android phone from Rogers that supported 3G on AT&T, and they are virtually identical in performance. - Ward Mundy
There is lots of analysis saying the google phone web site is the true game changer and not the phone. Anyone agree? - Jim Posner
Jim, I agree to an extent. Unbundling the phone/carrier is the game changer. no question. - Karoli
Jim, I think that is the sleeper hit for the first quarter. Instead of the arm-twisting that Apple had to do with AT&T to get the network behavour they needed, Google is now going to make it so that the US carriers *have* to change or be left behind as niche phone vendors - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
It felt like a stockholder meeting. - Jim Turner
That's because 'phones' are dead. The devices need to be much more than that now. - Cliff Gerrish i have to choose between this and the President's presser. Perhaps the President could wait a few minutes? :) - Karoli
Karoli, that's what DVRs are for. - Cliff Gerrish
LOL - Susan Beebe
I like arrington's take on the providers needing to step up now. - Jim Turner
Mike Arrington just joined the GillmorGang (live) - - Cliff Gerrish
Zwpwpwpwpwpol';dkfa;ldfk awesome!! - Susan Beebe
LOL!!!! Voice recognition, FTW - Karoli
Robert they dont work any tme whether geeks in town or not. - Jim Turner
Untrained voice recognition has a lot more to do with the speaker than the phone. - Ward Mundy
On the GillmorGang Tank! =) - Micah
how can we use Google Voice on our iPhones????? - Susan Beebe
Ward, I agree. Using a headset/mic would help accuracy. - Karoli
I think it also helps if you spell out loud everything you want to say. - Cliff Gerrish
Just did a Nexus One Nav demo with voice recognition on YouTube. Had no problems. - Ward Mundy
Cliff, I spent 5 minutes training my Mac for MacSpeech, it's about 98% accurate. Amazing technology - Karoli
Karoli, did you train your Mac - or did it train you? - Cliff Gerrish
Anyone catch the Ballmer keynote last a xbox 360 owner I found the natel announce interesting but not much else. - Jim Posner
On Nexus One, try: Navigate to Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. In 15 seconds, you're on your way. - Ward Mundy
Cliff, i don't feel like it trained me... - Karoli
Karoli, then it was very successful. - Cliff Gerrish
Ballmers focus seemed retrospective rather than forward looking. Has MS become irrelevant in terms of tech leadership? - Jim Posner
watching president's presser on CNN on my iphone while watching GG on my laptop. If I mistake Arrington for Obama, just shoot me. - Karoli
Cloud based phones suck when there's no access to the Net. Try connecting in Cambria, CA. - Alex de Soto
If you don't have a Google phone, check out Vlingo. I've got it on my Blackberry and I can do voice input wherever there is text input. It's also server-based - Ted Gilchrist
Uhh. All cellphones are cloud based. - Ward Mundy
"Strategic fear" is accurate label for Apple - Arrington nailed it - Susan Beebe
Apple's too proprietary / closed, could cause them to paint themselves into a corner fast - Susan Beebe
Aren't web apps on the iPhone completely open? - Cliff Gerrish
Google knows how to leverage and guide open source projects well... smart code & resource management - Susan Beebe
Cliff the apps may be open, but the holy Apple App Store is NOT open; highly biased - Susan Beebe
Apple is a consumer hardware company that invested heavily in the OS to help drive the consumer experience - that's a lot different than the Microsoft and Google focus. They all approach consumers from different starting perspectives. - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
As a first generation phone the Nexus One is as equally impressive as the first gen iPhone. - Jim Posner
Danny's an Apple fanboi!!! :P - Susan Beebe
Nobody's buying an iPhone because of an app-by-app comparison like that. - Ken Sheppardson
Keep that pic - it's funny watching Arrington get all twitchy!! LOL :D - Susan Beebe
that photo of scoble cracks me up. - Karoli
People are buying iPhone's because it's the default choice at this point. - Ken Sheppardson
The question now is "Why should I buy phone X instead of an iPhone?" - Ken Sheppardson
In the UK the iPhone has banking apps. Property apps. Apps to measure my energy consumption in the home - Jamie
its gone way beyond Twitter and Facebook - Jamie
TMobile is an excellent data carrier but yes, if you live in the boonies you may have issues - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
The days of coverage being local are long past. To be competitive, coverage needs to be there, coordinated across regions. - Karoli
Exactly why it's good that a lot of the apps on the iPhone can be used without the cloud. - Alex de Soto
M$ was very disappointing... yawn - Susan Beebe
every time i've had to contact tmobile for plan changes or questions the folks have been friendly and able to answer/fix the problem. the phone folks are a lot better then the folks in the stores - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Robert is there 'cause everybody else is there. It's like being a Deadhead. - Ken Sheppardson
Robert's at CES because, "There's a lot of parties!" LOL :D - Susan Beebe
HP placing Bing as default search engine is a BAD move for HP... bye bye - Susan Beebe
Bing has an iPhone app *yawn*. It is surprising to see Bing doesn't render on mobiles - Susan Beebe
Paul was ranting a bunch this week on M$ - funny stuff - Susan Beebe renders fine on my phone - Jamie
google docs rocks - Tim Jones
Google docs is amazing... collaboration is simply fantastic. love it - Susan Beebe works on Droid, but doesn't suggest it; is smarter - Kevin Marks
Jeffrey Hayzlett uses Google docs too :) Jeff is a very smart cookie, transforming Kodak - Susan Beebe redirects me to on the iphone - Jamie
facebook ads are amazingly effective and well targeted - Susan Beebe
very interesting discussion; very insightful remarks especially in the discussion about Apple vs. Google - Jeroen De Miranda
the interesting thing is that with Quattro Wireless, Apple can build in an ad network to their mobile stack to keep developers on the platform - Jamie
and use it as an alternative means of monetisation. - Jamie
targeting? apple ID info. - Jamie
the mono folks have been trying to evangelize the .net/CLR tech and have been berated constantly by Microsoft - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Apple's mobile me is a total failure on Droid too - Kevin Marks
Microsoft is throwing a lot of money at getting Silverlight to stick, but nothing has stuck yet. They have to pay off everyone to get Silverlight in. Once the money stops, Silverlight disappears. - Matt M (inactive)
mobile me uses soo many safari-specific html items it reminds me of how some MS products are tied to IE - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Kevin - haha not surprised! ;o) - Susan Beebe
I think in a year we'll have to look back at 2009 as the year Palm died its final death... sigh.... - Ken Sheppardson
Netflix watch instantly works great -- (silverlight) - Cliff Gerrish
completely agree ken - Jamie
Droid-Nexus One was the one-two punch that finally sent them to the mat. - Ken Sheppardson
I think part of it was self inflicted - Jamie
Interesting that the xbox and mobile teams have be joined at msft. - Cliff Gerrish
todays web os announcements were completely underwhelming - Jamie
Oh, ALL of it was self inflicted, Jamie... in some sense ;-) - Ken Sheppardson
XBox is a strong piece of technology - the only thread M$ has left to hang onto - Susan Beebe
Cliff, I think Netflix is the only big success story I've seen for Silverlight. - Matt M (inactive)
Zune? No mention of Zune when discussing Windows mobile stuff? - Ken Sheppardson
maybe Microsoft can buy Palm and bring their web skills to use - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Matt, how about the olympics? - Cliff Gerrish
"But after the conclusion of the [olympic] games, NBC went back to using Flash. Another setback for Microsoft came when Major League Baseball Advanced Media, the group that streams baseball games over the Web, decided to drop Silverlight." - Matt M (inactive)
bear: I think Palm's taken on too much ex-Apple persona to be a Microsoft target. :-) - Ken Sheppardson
Apps are the KEY game changer in the mobile market. Of course decent signal & data are a must too! - Susan Beebe
Why doesn't Twitter do a camera? - Ken Sheppardson
Does the Nexus One have push technology? - Karoli
Ken - ah, that's a shame - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Susan, I completely agree. Apps will drive phone decisions, etc. - Karoli
Yeah, and I completely disagree. I think early adopters overestimate the extent to which app selection matters. - Ken Sheppardson
Ease of use, carrier choice, coverage... all trump number of apps. - Ken Sheppardson
Thanks guys :) - Susan Beebe
Ken, carriers need to become seamless. I choose my carrier based on carrier, not based on handset. - Karoli
Bye Steve, thanks for a great show. - Karoli
Which do/did you chose first, Karoli: carrier or handset? - Ken Sheppardson
it's always been handset choice for me - but then again I change phones in 2-3 year cycles so i'm never locked into a contract when I decide to move. - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
I think the typical smartphone decision process these days goes (1) Do I object to iPhone for some philosophical reason or do I so hate AT&T so as to not buy one? (2) if so, which carrier am I on now, (3) what's the best phone on that carrier. - Ken Sheppardson
that was a 2009 era decision tree - I think the availability of android phones on all of the carriers will now change that for 2010. (or at least I hope it will) - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
with android, there are choices. alot of people like a keyboard - Tim Jones
There'll be a point where mechancial keyboards are completely replaced with virtual keyboards. (the physical keyboard becomes an object of nostalgia) - Cliff Gerrish
Louis Gray and the Power of Microbranded Communities -
Lots of good points. I feel so schizo moving between all these sites. - Kevin Gamble
Kevin just remember that microblogging is a technology and not a service - whichever one of these services let you use that technology in the best way is probably your best choice IMO - Jesse Stay from twhirl

Here come Chrome extensions! I want one to share on FriendFeed & to save bookmark bar space. :)
Will there be an extension that can put the tabs down below the menus? - Sue - Friendfeed is best
@SuezanneC Baskerville - you can't do that with the way Chrome extensions currently work. - Nick Lothian
If anyone is interested I made a FF Room for Chrome Extensions: - Mark Layton
I use the bookmarklet to share on FF in Chrome. - Kol Tregaskes

You CAN remove yourself from lists. @mathewi just block the person who made the offensive list. @stevegillmor and I have tested it out.
That's a rather crappy solution. What if my mom puts me on a list that's "people who are just precious" and I decide that's embarrassing professionally? Now I have to call her to coax her into delisting me when she gets time. Or I can block my mom. Both solutions are kinda lame. Oh well, hopefully Twitter will add more nuanced solutions to this problem soon. - Daniel J. Pritchett
i thought twitter lists were like rooms here on friendfeed, but i guess it's more of a myfollowfriday type (hype?)...maybe they can tick lists as private by default, then users can make it public later...for now...i'm using lists as rooms like friendfeed - brainno722 (Peter)

Switched to Chrome developer release for Mac OS X (, and it was the best decision I have made recently. Firefox/Flash wouldn't stop crashing since my upgrade to Snow Leopard.
What about Safari? Why Chrome over Safari? - Jesse Stay
Flash slaughters my wife's Air, but does so on Safari, too. We've learned more about kernel_task than we ever wanted to. - Christopher Galtenberg
It is a problem with Flash I am pretty sure, and it crashes both Firefox and Safari. Chrome does not crash for whatever reason, so I am using it despite its quirks. - Bret Taylor
Good to know - I've been noticing similar issues with Flash - interesting that Chrome works fine - Jesse Stay
I like Chrome, but it has its quirks... Personally, I use WebKit nightlies and love it. I also couldn't live without 1Password. - Chris Messina
Chris, I hear you on 1Password. I do wish there had been a smoother transition regarding the 64-bit issue. I upgraded my keychain but my data wouldn't convert properly, so I downgraded off the beta and have to run Safari in 32-bit mode. But it's still a great app. - Micah
I have all three browsers open every day as part of my work, but Chrome is the one I like the best. Safari's quality is pretty high, but it has some weird quirks like the developer tools not allowing you to inspect off-domain iframes and auto-unzipping downloaded .zip files (horrible feature for trying to update your Android ROM). Chrome also got me used to tabs on top, something I couldn't go back on now. - Matt M (inactive)
Does not bode well for Firefox. - τorƍue
I hate Flash in OS X no matter which browser, but maybe Chrome's process separation manages to minimize the damage when Flash blows up? - Victor Ganata

Justin: True, Social search is the future. Human data is precious - Sunny (The Geek Lord)
Yeah I don't mind it, would just prefer it if done on FF rather than the bird site, but I understand the reasons though. - travispuk
it's 5:18 AM, so quiet everyone, too much noise can't sleep. Do like the favorite thing though - Kim Landwehr

SocialToo Launches Anti-Virus Solution for Twitter -
SocialToo Launches Anti-Virus Solution for Twitter
"It’s time we put an end to worms and viruses on Twitter. You wouldn’t want to be on a PC without anti-virus protection. Why would you be on Twitter without SocialToo? Consider SocialToo your vaccine for the Social Web." #iamanadvisor - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Why would you need an anti-virus for twitter? I mean, no offense, but if your antivirus can't secure your browser, you probably have bigger worries than twitter. - Joel Bennett
Joel, for the same reason millions are being infected by the current worms going around Twitter right now. The fact that it's happening means they need something to protect them - either it's getting past their anti-virus, they don't have it, or this goes far beyond what any desktop anti-virus program can fix. The fact is if they were using SocialToo right now they wouldn't be infected. - Jesse Stay
How do we get this kind of thing exposure to those who really need it? People who are not techie? - Eric - Final Countdown
Eric, word of mouth - be sure to spread it to your friends, family, etc. We're also working to get the site in a better state for those not familiar with Twitter so it's easier to understand. - Jesse Stay
Holden's right though - we'll also be working on our end to get the word out. - Jesse Stay
Holden, we're still working all that out, but I was able to fix today's worms much, much faster than Twitter was. We're also working on tracking trends of keywords people add, along with the DMs people block and mark as spam. All that will add up to enabling us to identify the malicious DMs and stopping them before most people see them. - Jesse Stay
Regarding price, we're still talking about that - November 1st the new premium plan will go in place that will include anti-virus. I'm not sure what it will cost yet - we'll notify everyone before that happens though and give them the chance to opt-in. I'm still not sure, but my thoughts are that the DM e-mails and reporting will still be free and the automated anti-virus launched today... more... - Jesse Stay
Call me myopic, but I still say this is like buying a new AV "just for email". My bet is those "millions" of infected users weren't protected (at all), and the real story is much bigger than protecting people from clicking bad twitter links. - Joel Bennett
Joel the other advantage this gives you is you never receive the infected DMs. This sits right on top of your Social Networks and scans them before you even receive them. I know of no anti-virus product that does that. - Jesse Stay
Holden *currently* just Twitter. I'd like to cover other networks too though. I have a few ideas. - Jesse Stay
Wait, so ... they have to use a specific twitter client for this to work? - Joel Bennett
Joel, SocialToo managing your DMs sits in between Twitter and your e-mail or Twitter DM box, period. It doesn't matter what client you prefer, it zaps offending keyword strings that are associated with spam or phishing. - Louis Gray
Oh, so they're checking the DMs all the time and have permission to delete them? - Joel Bennett
Congratulations on the launch, Jesse! That'd be cool for many people I guess. But, but... I'm running Linux ALL the time :/ Most of worms won't harm me, let alone that I wrote my firewall and know what happens in my machine :) - directeur
Holden, that's the marketers job. Jesse, me, and other devs all arround the planet code to solve problems, and bring new ideas, marketers sell it :) - directeur
Directeur unfortunately when you only have your own software development skills to market your product you have to let your code do the marketing. Enable as many ways as possible for users to tell their friends. That and 2 great marketing experts as advisors really helps as well. :-) - Jesse Stay
Directeur, regarding Linux - I run a Mac - that doesn't mean I'm not exposed. These worms are spread by people clicking a link, thinking they're on Twitter or some other familiar site, giving their credentials, and boom, it spreads to more users. - Jesse Stay
If I ever get time I'd like to write a book on marketing for coders. There are ways of expression and promotion with code that I don't think many developers know they have access to. - Jesse Stay
Agreed, Jesse! :) I run my own business actually and these truths come to bite me everytime I have to pay a bill. All of the work I talk here on FriendFeed is for fun only, I don't care for marketing that much, because I have nothing to sell, but I actually need it to make the fun spread, so marketing is inevitable. Anyway... congrats again! Wishing you good luck! :) - directeur
Thanks Directeur - I appreciate it! - Jesse Stay
Make it very obvious what this feature is. It wasn't easy for me to find. It should be a big red button that says TURN ON TWITTER ANTI-VIRUS. (Just a suggestion) - Eric - Final Countdown
Thanks Eric - that will be much more obvious as we adapt the user experience shortly. I agree - it's not very straightforward at the moment. - Jesse Stay
Robert Scoble
@ChrisSaad true but I also don't have to give those comments any distribution. On FriendFeed I can even delete and block.
I don't see how you are providing distribution. The display is happening in an application attached to the browser. You are saying that because your writing causes me to have a thought you then own that thought. If I want to use a Google product to store and display that thought that is MY right not yours. - Martin Johnson
Jesse Stay
It is no longer "go where your customers are", but rather "bring the location of your customers back to you"
or is it more like "stalk your customers wherever they are"? ;) - Kate
Not yet. - Louis Gray
Kate, no, it's let your customers come to you, but use the environments they're familiar with to participate right on your own brand. Check out my latest blog post for a good explanation of what I'm referring to. It's a merging of the old and new marketing - I think we're entering an even newer era of marketing. - Jesse Stay

Gillmor Gang w/ Facebook's Bret Taylor on Tornado rerunning today 1PM Pacific
Wondering about hosting for Tornado, Bret Taylor says you might need your own box. If only there were a hosting co. that focused on the real-time web. - Cliff Gerrish
Bret said you could use EC2, but you will need more than the cgi access most PHP hosts give you - effectively need to run as root to have the python process listening on port 80. - Kevin Marks
It's interesting to see a framework (Tornado) that takes the changed landscape of internet identity into account - bundles of identities. - Cliff Gerrish
Well, it could do more there - talking with Bret they don't actually bind them themselves, but by building in support for multiple versions that is useful - Kevin Marks
Seems like it's the first step in that direction. Now that Tornado has been open sourced, there's a path. - Cliff Gerrish
Cliff: EC2 is nice, but expensive for a sandbox ($72 / month). Rackspace Cloud has 256 meg virtual servers that are about $11 / month. Great deal if you ask me. I had Tornado running in about 30 seconds on my RC VPS. The ability to programmatically clone servers with their API makes it a really nice place to launch something like a Tornado async app which could makes use of many low cost, low powered servers for dedicated connections. - Derek Gathright
Derek: thanks for the tip. - Cliff Gerrish
Yes, thank you, Derek! - Micah
A post on $11 option and things to like about the Rackspace offer - Micah
will there be audiofiles for download as a podcast? - franzstehrn

Yes I remember it well. You mean Mr.Laporte really did kick you guys off? - Kevin J Hatton
I still can't get used to seeing 'Bret Taylor - Facebook' lol great show. Where do I subscribe.? - Kevin J Hatton
Kevin, you could favorite the channel or get word in any number of other ways. I got the channel gadget so it shows up on my iGoogle start page. - Amyloo
