How do you like this e-mail signature? Every employee. Every e-mail. Think this company gets social media?
Picture 7.jpg
Disclaimer: Emulex is a client of Paladin Advisors Group, where I am GM of New Media (or whatever title I have these days) - Louis Gray
All those links in every e-mail are clickable, by the way. The B is for the main blog page. - Louis Gray
what's the last logo? oh... heh. - Jim #teamFFrank
You can see all these logos on their Web site in the bottom right corner as well: http://www.emulex.com/ - Louis Gray
Pea, I think that depends on the user's Outlook settings. It is optional. - Louis Gray
Oh if only Gmail allowed some HTMLy signatures! :( - travispuk
GMail receives the sig just fine. Tested there and .Mac and Outlook. - Louis Gray
So in other words, they don't "get" e-mail? :) - Steve Lynch from twhirl
If I saw an email signature like this, I'd click on all of the links just to see how active they are. Some people have all these accounts but aren't active, so what's the point? But of course this doesn't apply to you Louis. I'm just saying in general. - Violet Mae Lim
Violet, these are active. I promise. :) - Louis Gray
If that company were REALLY into Social Media, it would have just one link, to your Google Profile: http://www.google.com/profile... ;-) - Robert Scoble
Logical: I'm just having some fun with Louis. I personally hate tons of icons on things. So complicated. How do I pick? ;-) - Robert Scoble
At some point, will you discuss the Paladin Advisor's Group more fully? - DGentry
Robert has a free pass to tease or criticize anything I do. It's 100% fair game. I think Google Profiles aren't known well for folks to click through to yet. That said, Robert, bring it on. Here's the company's profile: http://www.google.com/profile... - Louis Gray
And DGentry, yes, we can talk about Paladin soon. Promise. - Louis Gray
LE: None. That's been fixed. :) Probably not thinking too much about it. - Louis Gray
Logical: Twitter is the new website. - Robert Scoble
Logical: actually I was joking about the Google Profile thing, not kidding about the Twitter thing. - Robert Scoble
Yeah, but where's your email address? LOL - David Libby
Didn't you hear....E-Mail is Dead! - Owen Greaves
you can do html in gmail, with a firefox plugin Blank Canvas http://blankcanvasweb.com/pages... - Robert Higgins
Yes, e-mail is dead. It is also required in order to create an account on how many Web sites!?! I think I was required to link my OpenID account to an e-mail address. So much for Identitiy 2.0.... - Steve Lynch from twhirl
Looks sharp imho. - Rob Schieber
what, no My Space link? - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
Louis - I like the links on the home page, but EVERY employee gets that? I can tell you that lots of storage people are going to be scared by all of the "interwebs" stuff. I <3 the Emulex guys and know they're trying to update their image, but I'd think that most of them have bigger issues that learning to explain what FriendFeed and SlideShare are when people look at them funny. - Stuart Miniman
Stu, I think I should use the word "optional". It's optional to everyone and every e-mail. And it's fine if some conservative industries aren't ready yet. It's time to shake it up. - Louis Gray
Is it using Wisestamp? Very nice. FYI - Wisestamp is free, works w/ Gmail, Posterous, even the links. - Liza + = ?
It's a bit much - Rodfather
The nice thing about Wisestamp is you can delete the icons in gmail, if it is going to someone who you think has no idea what Slideshare is. Otherwise, wd be a pain. - Liza + = ?
Yeah, I like simple signatures. - Andrew C (✔)
All the hyperlinks scream I'm spam & it will likely be treated as such by many mail programs. - Rick Frank
Rick, very good feedback. It will be considered. - Louis Gray
Too much. Too busy. I'd get rid of the office line, the link to lousgray.com, and definitely the emulex logo. Anyway that's just my opinion :) - Eric Florenzano
They get it better than I do. I have to admit, I do not recognize all of those icons as they do! - Randy Rambo
check out http://www.socialmediav.com they have a killer signature widget, both for personal and corporate brands! :) - sera aktüre
Office and mobile phone? You need Google voice. I was able to get a cool number, (areacode) 4 Julio F - Julio F ~ @SocialJulio
Just a simple link to a homepage should be enough, small description about what you do, and phone numbers if you're into that kind of thing. - Peter Stuifzand
Too many links in an email signature can cause the email to be flagged as spam. you need to test it out before using it. never can be 100% certain... - Mike Nencetti
Are those custom icons, or something pulled from the web? - Spencer
yes but what's it mean? More is not bettter. - Jeremiah Owyang
Personally, it seems way too cluttered to me. I would rather just have a link to a page on the company's website that lists all of their various connections. I'm almost as jaded to those icons as I am to banner ads. If I want to know about the company I will be looking at their website first, then their blog, then whatever other services interest me, but I'll always go to their website first. If that's not impressive then it doesn't really matter what they're doing in other spaces. - Lindsay
Looks good to me. Simple. IMO, I would (1) bump name size +2 pts (2) maybe italicize title or choose different font, so it will jump out at you, but not as much as name (3) remove "www." from website. (4) I haven't seen this in real-life to look at overall point sizes. Often people's business cards need ALL pts sizes +2 to +4. As my 72-yr old Dad always reminds me, older people can't... more... - Mitchell Tsai
Simple and To The Point!!! The Purple " B" Logo...What Brand is That??? - @CtrlFollow
I had same question - never seen it! - Susan Beebe
@louis - how'd you create a company google profile? - andy brudtkuhl
Andy, A Google profile is just assigned to a GMail account. So if you create a centralized GMail account, you can make a company profile. This one, for example, is emulexinc@gmail.com. More on the strategy here: http://www.louisgray.com/live... - Louis Gray
I think if they are all business related and it is for marketing- why not. There is another app nomee.com that does a card also. It is flash based so won't work on the iphone - Kathleen Cercone

I do like FF and use it almost every day. Wouldn't it be great if FB either left it alone so we can continue to use it as "professionals," or somehow incorporate it into a more "mature" version of FB that didn't have all the annoying, time-wasting apps, games, etc. I'd much prefer a totally customizable FF "wall." - Cathryn Hrudicka

@robert yes they (we will) stay here, I think tat the migration process will take time and after reading @Paul Bucheit, I think that what we all are trying to get even if we don't say it explicitly is to preserve a kind of intimacy (beeing a part of the Huge faceBook community) don't mean that FF community will preserve their intimacy, why should a community be a plan one, (let imagine a community as a set of sub-community) that all. - abdellah

@Robert RE "I have enough noise in my life. I don't need to have more" - isn't it a lot of noise having 26K subscriptions and 46K subscribers on your frf account? I'm kind of surprised - you create a community that large around yourself, yet when you see a new and unusual activity you just block it right away. - Based on real people

@Robert, patience? Who's talking about patience? It's about curiosity, not patience. When something strange and unusual happens around you, you can either try to stop it or try to see what it can develop into. You choose to stop - and it stopped. Well, not stopped - just moved to some other place. And do you really know what it was and what it was about to bring you? - Based on real people

Mark: I have 46,000 followers, but the usual thing is only a percentage of them show up on any week. - Robert Scoble
That's sad - Gianluca Neri from iPhone
I'm sure this is part of Scoble's plot to poll all the people who really read his posts, and unfollow the rest. So I raise my hand. - Shivanand Velmurugan
Just a wannabe. Not an addict (yet). - Carole Hicks
It might also be a way for me to filter down my "following" count (diff (my followers, scoble)) are the only people I really need to follow. Those that scoble follows, I can safely unfollow and use Scoble as my social media filter :) - Shivanand Velmurugan

@bdlangam From my perspective the #1 tip in this category is: Explore and define "best use" for yourself.

Contrary to popular misconception, lawyers don't actually enjoy wearing suits. Haul us into work on a Sunday, and we'll definitely be dressing comfortably. :) - Brian Chang

FF was the cutting edge whereas FB is quickly becoming the mainstream. Unfortunately, the mainstream does not necessarily equal innovation and pushing the envelope. We all suffer when innovation is chilled. But on the other hand, congrats to the FF crew. They made their money! - blackChinahand
I think the Tiger suit would have been more appropriate! But hey....shorts in a backyard is pretty cool too. - Drea Lester

I call this pic... "Six Happy Dudes & 1,000,000+ Pissed-Off FriendFeeders" - Brad Williamson
I don't get the negativity - did no one realize FriendFeed was a business? The object of a business is to sell eventually (either privately or publicly). We should be celebrating their success. This is a huge win for them, as well as Facebook. I personally think it's a huge win for the "loyal users" as well. So now we stab them in the back when they do something huge? - Jesse Stay
Not to mention we know *nothing* about what this will mean for both services. These guys haven't let us down yet, have they? - Jesse Stay
Congratulations to all of you!! - Steve de Mena

Congratulations Paul, you should have got more, but I guess $50m is nothing to sneeze at. Have a great wedding anniversary too, I'm sure you both deserve it. Much happiness - :) - Chris Loft

Those are the kind of business meetings I could get used to - no suits... but selling to Facebook? Hmmm... Good for someone of course but I suppose we'll see where this ride takes us. - Ken Stewart | ChangeForge
Congratulations, FriendFeeders! I'm anxious to see what changes this will bring. FriendFeed is my favorite site to visit, so hopefully y'all will find a way to maintain the FF spirit somehow. - Keith Pelczarski
No matter the type of big change, there are those who will not like it, often simply because it's change. I for one am very pleased that two of the services I use most are joining forces, and am eager to see the new developments that come of this acquisition. Congrats to EVERYONE on the FriendFeed team. You all deserve it! You've done a great job with a small company. Now lets see what you can do with a large one :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Nicely put, guruvan. - Anne Bouey
Congratulations - Steve C, Team Marina
@Jesse Stay re: "the objective of business is to sell eventually" : Ummm, the objective of many businesses is to become profitable by providing a valuable experience to their users. Businesses that feel they can't do that are the ones that sell. - Shane Gibbons

Congratulations to everyone involved. Well done. - Darius Dunlap
This is a very sad day in friend feed history. It is horrible because I like friend feed for how it's different from face book. I use facebook but I find it really annoying and I wouldn't use it if my friends and family weren't using it. So if Friend Feed becomes another facebook then i donno if I will keep coming to friend feed. - Colide81 (James) from iPhone

Congrats to the FF staff, but you'll have to pardon my lack of exuberance. I have mental pictures of being forced to use the FB UI and it makes me sad =( - FFing Enigma

Great match-up guys ! The Fabulous Friender Boys ! - Let's see some integrated mashups and extensible apps and FF UI. Given Google and Twitter a run for their money... Looks like they are going to have to "hook-up" now ! - Mike Schmidt
Congratulations Paul and the team! Hopefully we'll still get the same simple UI for FriendFeed. I'm sure however that no matter what you do, things will turn up nicely. - Ovidiu Predescu

But Ahmed you are still being an ass about it, trying to rain on their good times. Go find a hole under the bridge where you belong. You can be sad and not have to come out all bitchy about stuff. Clear thoughtful comments instead of going all into "fuck you" mode. - Rasmus Lauridsen

Congratulations! :) - Ruben Sanchez
Great result Paul. In such a short time, millions of users, 1 new interface and a marriage with internets' celebrity. This is a period which you should write down to make it as an on-line business case. You people are really wise businessmen. Nice job, congrats! :) - Olcayto Cengiz
Not happy happy congrats bullshit from me-I used FF. - frankiecarl

People choose boring colors for cars - http://www.carlist.com/blog...
People choose boring colors for cars
And auto makers too often only offer boring colors for cars. It's a chicken and the egg problem, but is a big problem as I want to get a factory paint job in a striking color. - Kevin Fox from Bookmarklet
My car is a luxury (Acura RL) colored white, with a gray trim. Take THAT, conformity! - Mike Nayyar
I have wanted a copper orange car badly for the last 4 years! *sighs* - Rachel Lea Fox
one of my favorite weird colors for a car is burnt orange, like the 40th anniversary lotus - http://twitpic.com/376pu - mjc
"The designers meet with three different paint houses, we go to fashion shows, we read magazines such as the Trend Union, a bi-annual trend forecasting book that shapes colors and lifestyles for seasons ahead." Wow, they read a *magazine*? That's advanced design methodology! - ⓞnor
If you've ever seen a big parking lot on Google Maps (or MS's Live Local or whatever they call it), you've seen how boring car colours are. Though in fairness, those photos might not be as saturated as real life. - Andrew C (✔)
Anyways, it's a shame. - Andrew C (✔)
I am so tired of seeing mostly white, black, silver, gray, and gold cars on the road. So boring. - Anne Bouey

I used to have a funky colored beetle five years back.. before it finally aged out - Sardar Mohkim Khan
its 2009 when it the changeable paint going to arrive? Click a button your car is orange. Tire of orange? Switch to green. Then blue. Formal event, Black sounds good. - gfurry
love any color as long as it's black - brodo
Rachel - the Chevy HHR makes orange. I'd guess it's not very popular since 99% of them seem to be owned by Avis. Rental car lots are great places to see some more experimental colors not often seen on the road. - Sarah Brinkerhoff
Sarah - thanks!! This is actually the exact car I want: http://images.cars.com/main... Mazda 3 in burnt orange copper. They sold it as an anniversary edition about 4 years ago for one year only. According to salesmen, it is continually one of their more popular colors and if they get one in used they can't keep it very long. You would think they would learn from that and bring it back!!! But no, the 2010 colors are released and no orange. :( - Rachel Lea Fox
Ours is silver. Sometimes makes it hard to find in the parkinglot. - Alix May
Re: Will You Block the DiggBar? - http://mashable.com/2009...
"Speaking for Mashable, I'd say we're unlikely to block DiggBar imminently: Digg is usually pretty good at listening to publishers and users, and it's easy to overreact when these controversies blow up. Kevin Rose made smart points on TWiT recently about how Zuckerberg reacts to Facebook controversies, and I trust him to make the right call on the DiggBar." - mashable
I think the diggbar is going to have to be either removed, or totally re-developed. It's creating a lot of negative heat for digg. - Jim Connolly
I thought we were done with brute force framing years ago. It failed in previous incarnations and seems to be headed in the same direction now. I remember building a framing toolbar 9 years ago for MSN to achieve some sort of co-branding with other sites. The user experience was bad, the participating sites didn't like it, it didn't last. And that was a case were the frame was added by agreement, not forced on 3rd party sites. - Yuval Atzmon
I no longer use digg. Not really as a direct result of the diggbar, but so long as that as there now that I am using other services it is much harder for me to feel compelled to go back to digg - Benin Brown
Surely digg must realise the amount of bad feeling this 'trick' is causing. - Jim Connolly

FFing Enigma
My father had his first speech therapy appointment today. He has significant aphasia from his stroke last week, including almost complete inability to read and write, and significant impairment of speech. He looks at an object and knows what it is, but his brain can't "grab" onto the word to say it.
They gave him a baseline test today to see which nouns he could "find" and say without being prompted (i.e. giving him the first syllable of the word). Apparently he has no issue with octopus, compass (as in math), and harp. Bed, house, toothbrush, and key all required prompting. This caused the speech therapist to say "Well, now: you're going to be interesting!" He took it as a complement ;-) - FFing Enigma
It might take time but the therapy will help. And if your dad is receptive then so much the better. Thanks for keeping us up to date :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I had similar issues a while back after some health issues ... It's amazing how much my brain has rewired.. (It feels like all the data is there but the index keys are corrupt) - Sean Reiser
He's been making good strides with his speech, so I'm not all too worried about that. Over the past week he's been putting together short sentences without problem. Reading is going to be the bigger hurdle because he doesn't recognize most letters. The odd part about that is certain words make sense when he sees them: he pointed out the 'Occupational Therapy' sign to my mom today. Just another example of how creepily complex the human brain is =) - FFing Enigma
Sean, may I ask what type of aphasia you had? And while I'm probing and asking personal questions, were there any exercises that you found particularly helpful? - FFing Enigma
Of Course You may ask... I had (have, still come across words that I've "lost") anomic aphasia... Even though I went through therapy I feel being engaged in social situations with loved ones and blogging helped more then anything else, I feel the brain rewire's itself... Allow him to be circumlocuious (I once couldn't find the word Earth, and came up with "Like Gallifrey, only we're on it") feel free to reach out to me if you need http://seanreiser.com/contact... - Sean Reiser
Aww man, that's rough stuff, Tina. Aphasia is fascinating, but if it happens close to home, not so much I imagine. - Josh Haley
I appreciate it Sean, and may take you up on your offer of contact (particularly if my dad is interested in hearing someone else's perspective who's had it). William, thanks for the references. I'm only just starting to research helpful supplements and nutrients, I'm hoping to have a list ready for his neurologist visit to make sure there won't be issues with them and his current medication. - FFing Enigma
Tina, I hope you dad get better soon. Amazing how tools like FriendFeed let us talk about so many different topics. - Julio F ~ @SocialJulio
I'm not sure how I managed to miss previous posts from you about this situation. Very sorry to hear about this.. I actually heard it for the first time on the ffundercast. All the best to your dad and your family. - Jim #teamFFrank
This happened to my uncle. He made amazing strides though through therapy. Hoping your dad does to. - Martha
We can understand him without much issue, but it's beyond frustrating for him. And wait, this was on FFundercats? See what happens when I leave FF alone for a couple of days? =D - FFing Enigma
-1 Mark for completely inappropriate use of the word 'newsy.' ;) - Jim #teamFFrank
+10 to Jim for ignoring the equally inappropriate use of 'the boys' :) (Because 'rugged men' would have been much more appropriate :P) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Damn You Mark VandenPerez! *shakes fist* - FFing Enigma
Perhaps some words such as "rugged men" are just not meant to be recalled :) ...Tina, good luck to your dad. - Ontario Emperor
My dad just recovered from a small stroke. There were a few days when we were worried if it will all come back. Good luck with your Dad Tina, sure he will have a good recovery! - anna sauce
Yeah, we're noticing some short term memory issues with my father as well. I might have to suggest it a couple of times, but I think down the road journalling will be a good idea both for the writing practice and to assist with the memory issues. - FFing Enigma

One other fallout from today: it is a lot less likely I will go to SXSW.
Do you think attendances at trade shows / events will drop in 2009 because of the economy AND the ability to grab live blogging? - Jim Connolly
Bummer. Hope you can squeek by and make it anyhow. - David Herrold
Oh, Robert. :( - Mona Nomura
Uhoh... - Tabz
Oh no! You'll miss the DandyID / Brightkite party on the 16th! - sara olive
What? Bummer...I was looking forward to meeting you there. - Mark Krynsky
Eldon: because if it isn't bringing in revenues or increasing audience I won't be doing it. - Robert Scoble
Jim: yes. Next year is going to be tough for events. - Robert Scoble
Being a possible vendor at events, the one thing I do know, is the best possible future customers will be at these events...if they're spending money to be at a show, they must be investing in their business. But not even sure I can go this year. I even know of one conference that was moved from April to September in hopes people will more likely attend at that time. - Scott Sorheim
Scoble - i just emailed you about a celebrity charity event for SXSW that we want you a part of. it will increase audience. lemme know when you get the email. we had a few recording artists, an actress and "other leading blogger" confirmed...more to come as just only started getting the word out this morning. - Christine Lu
Robert: I blogged about the impact on trade shows here - http://www.thetechnewsblog.com/2009... - Jim Connolly
I just signed-on for SXSW today - paul mooney
Robert: Maybe you can take a cue from @jowyang and start hosting networking tweetups in your area to help eager professionals find good jobs? Call it WhoAreYouCamp! You are in a unique position to promote a lot of events locally that will help your local community and inspire your readers globally. - Daniel J. Pritchett
would Fast Company let another company sponsor your trip to SXSW? is it a cost issue or a focus issue? - Christine Lu
what happened 'today' specifically? - Mrinal Desai
Christine: it is both. - Robert Scoble
Mrinal: what happened today was a rethink of what we will be doing at Fast Company. - Robert Scoble
Robert, glad they kept you, shows you have proven value to their strategy. - susan mernit
Yeah: SXSW is hard for me to justify because the attendees are very heavily people I hang out with anyway and it is very heavy with bloggers and influentials. I love it because it is a big party but I can't justify doing that this year. I totally agree in focusing on smaller events and on events that will help people get jobs. - Robert Scoble
That's right! I'm not going either. Woohoo! - Veronica
You should totally go to PAX 2009, Robert. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
why don't you do your own conference - you probably got enough branding for scoblecon! make them come to you and charge em back for all the years. - mal
I'll send you some BBQ if you cant make it. - Jim Turner
Robert, do you think that even if there will be less attendance at SXSW it will also mean that there will be less interest about this event? May be it would be right choice to go there as those who cannot come would appreciate your coverage? This way you will get more visitors to Fast Company. - Taavi Uudam
Taavi: SXSW is a conference for bloggers and web pros. I bet you will hear more about it than nearly any conference in the world. Veronica: we should do something fun together. - Robert Scoble
Maybe we'll have an anti-SXSW Tweetup :) - Veronica
well for me it is the people i like to hang out with but dont see that often ;) - Nicole Simon
This is my first year going (yes, I'm late to the party) and like Nicole I was looking forward to meeting many people I've befriended online. It's a shame to hear Robert, Veronica, and many others won't be going this year. Moreso with an anti sentiment thrown in. For FF'ers that are going keep up in the SXSW room here http://friendfeed.com/rooms... - Mark Krynsky
SXSW Interactive is much more then a bloggers and Wed designers conference, Austin welcomes us and the community is transformed, Time is the biggest commitment we give to go the SXSW and the friends we meet and the friends we make is the reward. - paul mooney
I live in Austin and won't be going to SXSW. Just haven't seen anything compelling enough to get me to go down town. - Bryan Bartow from twhirl
I live on the north side of town and it's a 30 minute drive. That's like 30 cents in gas. - Bryan Bartow from twhirl
CES said that they were ready for an 8% drop in attendance this year, but the number was 22% drop. I was not able to get the attendance numbers for Oracle OpenWorld, but friends told me it was down from last yr. I made my hotel & air reservations for SXSW & was able to get a good deal. Looks like hotels and airlines are having problems too. This is real, and it will take a long time to recover... but now more than ever companies need to focus and listen to consumers. I see good things some companies. - Julio F ~ @SocialJulio
Julio: SFO's parking garage was empty tonight. Two years ago you would struggle to find a spot on Friday night. - Robert Scoble
i've got a wish list about attending conferences this year, and i've got to limit this year's to the XMPP Summit or Future of Web Apps. - Jason Salas
You should go to the one day Accelerator on the 16th. See up and coming companies (sort of SXSW's version of DEMO and TC50). Then we would at least get you for a day.. - Micah Baldwin
that's funny spam - Aaman (Clone of FF)
Robert: maybe Cindy will pay your way ;) ... seriously though, I'm sorry to see you have to go through such changes and feel terribly for Rocky. - J. McConnell
funny how, when the economy tanks, echo-chamber events just aren't that important anymore... - Graeme Thickins
Well, I still want to know when you do make it back out to Austin, Robert. Just so I can shake your hand. I probably won't make it to SXSWi this year either, but for me it's just the cost. - Phil Glockner
Graeme: I really want to go. I might go on my vacation time anyway. Networking events are even more important during downturns. - Robert Scoble
The .com bubble recession saw the end of Comdex. Don't be surprised if your favorite shows are toast in 2011. - Eric - Final Countdown

Reasons why friendfeed's new search features justify my investment in friendfeed, discuss here:
I have spent more than 2,000 hours in friendfeed. I have clicked "like" on 15,822 items. I have commented on 8,048 items. That is a HUGE investment in time (I've been blogging a lot less over the past year). These new search features bring HUGE benefits. I will discuss why here. - Robert Scoble
Clearly the main reason is to find things that you posted/liked in the last. - David Wilson
First, the new search features are discussed over on friendfeed blog here: http://blog.friendfeed.com/2009... - Robert Scoble
1. Now you can search based on number of comments an item got. So, I can search for all items that contain the word "Obama," for instance, but I can tell it to only show me items with 10 likes or more. THIS IS HUGE because it shows which items got HUGE engagement. Here is that search: http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
Wow, I didn't even notice that. Very useful. - David Wilson
Ability to refine searches for comments is a killer app. - Mike Nayyar
Hmm, does it actually let you search for a user's name/handle in the comments/content of an item, without giving you a load of "$PERSON liked this" results, even when their name/handle don't appear in the content or any attached comments? - Tyson Key
How close are we to being able to hide based on the criteria? - Brian Sullivan
Close... so... close. If we could create that search and have it form a real-time feed... that would do it for me. Historical search with the ability to follow the search in real time. - Brian Roy
2. Now you can search based on numbers of "likes" an item got. For instance, now I can say show me all items with "netbooks" in the title that have 10 or more likes. This is HUGE because it removes all noise and shows only items that got a lot of interest from the community. Here's that search: http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
Awesome! Makes Friendfeed less noisy to me. I agree some search fine-tuning would be nice. Still, this helps a lot. - Pam Baker
2,000 hours jeez they should pay you - andy brudtkuhl
Brian: yeah, I want real-time views into this data. That is a prerequisite to "track." Also, I need RSS feeds from these searches that I can shove into a room. I can't figure out how to do either of those two things. - Robert Scoble
I must be a dummy. I can't find how to do that on the site. However, I did read on the blog that it exists. How do I get to it? - Francine Hardaway
This can really cut down the noise in a search. For example, here's a search for items that mention the Steelers and only contain comments with the word towel. And you could also do the reverse. Cool. http://friendfeed.com/search... - Tom Landini
Andy: I'm pretty sure it is actually a lot more than 2,000 hours. I'm on friendfeed almost every minute I'm awake and not doing something else. - Robert Scoble
I didn't see it anywhere... sadly. I'm also looking to see if these advanced searches are supported by the API... if they are it is a boon for applications that swarm to subjects/topics. - Brian Roy
OK, I'm totally liking the new search features...Now I can finally see who's shouted out to me in posts without getting a lot of "Robert Scoble" noise in the results. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Aah, to answer my own question, the intitle: attribute seems to do the trick, cool. - Tyson Key
i still dont like "likes", but its an interesting idea to search what you want.. - Terry O'Fee
3. You can search for times a specific person has written something. For instance, I can now see how many times Bret Taylor has written the word "bacon" in one of his titles: http://friendfeed.com/search... By doing this I learned that Bret wrote the word "sex" twice as often as he wrote "bacon." :-) http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
Francine - just hit search with nothing in the box... that takes you to advanced search. - Brian Roy
robert - just don't type "mona" and "bacon" - the search will take days,,, - Terry O'Fee
The other day I was trying to search for your video on how to use ff. I wanted to share it with someone who is new here. But, I couldn't find it. I had to go to your site to find it. When I saw the title of your post, I realized why my search might have missed it. I don't know if these changes would have made a difference, but any improvement is welcomed in my book! I'm going to try it again and see if the changes help. - Michael Fidler
You get to the advanced search here: http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
Terry: Here's a search for "bacon" but from Mona's feed with two or more likes: http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
I love it, you can search just specific services, too. Like JUST TWITTER!! Check this out, these are all my tweets that have 20 or more likes: http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
very cool thanks for sharing Robert... Also of note you can grab the RSS feed from the search results (via Firefox addr bar only so far) - this is cool for those of you like me who use search subscriptions for research - andy brudtkuhl
and FF is so well indexed in google. yesterday I talked about backtype in italian and after few hours was already the 5th result searching "backtype" in that language - ezekiel
Terry: likes are metadata that you can use to improve your searches. Now you can see why people who are noisy on "liking" things are only hurting themselves. - Robert Scoble
Michael F makes a good point. I struggle with finding stuff I have liked or commented on before. I hope the new search function helps with that. - Amani
On a search for SEO if this was useful, I would end up with a list of posts similar to the Semmys finalists (though those are still personal preference). However I get http://friendfeed.com/search... which isn't exactly useful unless I wanted every conversation on FF that included the acronym - probably worse results than a potential Scobleizer post about lawnmowers ending up ranking in Google - Andy Beard
Here's a cool search. It shows you ALL items from EVERYONE that has gotten five likes and two comments (or more): http://friendfeed.com/search... - Robert Scoble
Robert: to get an RSS feed, append &format=atom to the end of the url after doing a search - Daniel Sims
Andy, to search for a term in only the entry title, use "intitle:", e.g. – http://friendfeed.com/search... - Dan Hsiao
Dan - so that means the API works too... hmmm wonder if that URL is rate limited. - Brian Roy
frienfeed is the next (social) search engine and these new features are a new big step to the right direction... - Simone Lovati
robert - ive noticed that the people who get "likes" are usually the ones who mass spam likes to everyone else... - Terry O'Fee
It worked! I can see what your talking about Robert. You have a lot of content here, but I found the post of yours I was looking for with relative ease:-) http://is.gd/ihXV - Michael Fidler
Terry: if you use a combination of "likes" and "comments" you can dramatically filter out a lot of noise. - Robert Scoble
you have a lot more people though, robert.... - Terry O'Fee
My first comment ever on FriendFeed. I cannot figure this place out yet. I'm sure it is wonderful though. - Hummie
Stick with it Hummie! - andy brudtkuhl
Once you can create a feed from the search results and make an imaginary friend for that feed then search will become useful for me. Of if you could search on a certain criteria and get the results sent to gtalk in realtime (aka track) will it be useful for me. Right now it is helpful but not of great use for me. - J Allen
Wow, I have more comments made than you? Wouldn't have guessed that. Yes, it is indeed an investment and this is very good news, Robert. - Josh Haley
"Also, I need RSS feeds from these searches that I can shove into a room." This would be a huge feature. It would really up the ante in creating useful rooms. - Doug Hudiburg
To get an RSS feed of any FriendFeed search result, just append "&format=atom" (without the quotes) to the end of the URL. Violå! :-) - Josh Bancroft
wow ! @Josh Bancroft, youre the man !!! just what i need !! it works !! - Rocky
@Josh thank you! - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
This is just so cool. FF rocked before, now it's just plain awesome :) - Nicola Quinn
I thought of you when I read FF blog yesterday: that's what you were asking when we met in Barcelona! - Jordi Soler
Robert Scoble
Is Twitter Killing Blogs and Blogging? - http://www.markevanstech.com/2009...
"Twitter +is+ blogging." - Robert Scoble
in a nutshell, yes, its taking attention to satisfaction away from blogging, its an easier, low cost to entry way to your mind out on the web - Dan Rockwell from twhirl
Blogging is, and always has been, just cheap and easy content creation and management which is pretty different to Twitter. Twitter basically replaces the role of blogs for some of the things that people used to use blogs for when they first appeared - dashing off quick links, status updates, and so on. And disagreeing with Robert, i think it's worth thinking of the two things as separate - they'll play different roles in communications in the future. - Ian Betteridge
Twitter is microblogging, Twitter enhances blogging and Twitter can be used separately from a blogging platform for many specific tasks, including blogging. Sure, they are separate, but they work together and reinforce each other. - Chris Loft
I don't think this is a competition, it's quite hard to resume a blog post in a couple of twitter messages and, at the same time, be relevant ... especially when people following you are already following tens, hundreds, <number here> of people! - Lucian Nicolescu
Twitter is Blogging for the ADD crowd - 140 characters and in 2 days you forget what was said - geekazine from twhirl
Agree with Rutger. Friendfeed is more of a blog killer... - Håkan Dahlström
No, not really: Can I write a 500 word post on FriendFeed? FF is a blog *comment* killer, but that's only part of the story with blogging. - Ian Betteridge from twhirl
Rutger, good point. As I mentioned, blogging is really "just" cheap, easy content creation/management. The discussion element is, to my mind secondary - not in the sense of being unimportant, but not really at the core of what defines it. And, of course, what you're describing is basically a freeform discussion forum :) - Ian Betteridge from twhirl
What Rutger said. - Steven Perez
Twitter is nothing more than IRC, sure a lot of people think it's microblogging but that's only because they use it five minutes a day. Blogging is more interesting than ever now. Friendfeed and the way it's used show how interesting blogging is at this moment. Show me a person that uses twitter as passionately and I may believe twitter is killing blogs. - Richard A.
Yes: FriendFeed could evolve into a really interesting blogging platform, if that's the direction they want to take - or, of course, offer better integration to existing platforms. - Ian Betteridge from twhirl
No, it's helping. Link sharing is the de facto way to be a good community member. The 140 character field is a perfect teaser, and the link is perfect to extend the conversation. FriendFeed is a wonderful enhancement to this process as well. - timedalkat from twhirl
Why are we still having this discussion? Microblogging is here to stay. Twitter and Friendfeed *can* make you smarter bloggers. But so can any time you spend away from your own blog and focus on *others* and their work. Seriously. - Barbara K. Baker
It is killing link blogs and "superficial" blog uses, so overall probably helping in terms of substance and quality. - Randy Holloway from twhirl
@randy, so it's keeping those that shouldn't blog too busy to post ;-) - Richard A.
Both Twitter and FriendFeed are sources for information. If you know how to use them, it can enhance your blog. So I don't think Twitter nor FriendFeed are blog killers. I'd say it's the opposite. - Umit Namli
I don't think so. Two very different media encouraging different types of interface. I think they are complimentary rather than antagonistic. - Martha
For me FF did (Twitter not so much) -- I used blogging as a catharsis and found FF fufilled that need so I stopped blogging - http://friendfeed.com/e... - Brian Sullivan
Umit: it's always worth remembering that media doesn't just serve as source of information, but also engagement through entertainment. People like commenting, because it entertains. - Ian Betteridge from twhirl
True Ian.Guess it all depends on how you use Twitter and FriendFeed. But if you'd ask me "Is Twitter killing blogs and blogging", my answer would be "No". - Umit Namli
Robert - Twitter is a Micro Blog and it gets people talking. This is good for society. I don't believe Twitter hurts blogging - it just enhances it. - Rob Cairns
Doesn't this depend on how people are using this? I liken this to CNN Headline News vs. The Newshour with Jim Leher...if you want the quick hit of info. to share and/or discover, Twitter is a great platform; alternatively, if you want to dive into a deeper conversation, research, experience, blogs play that role. - Christian
Robert, Madagascar is going through troubles now. So many people are awaiting for news but events are feeding too fast: Malagasy people is discovering Twitter and FriendFeed's power as writing blog articles take long time and you need to find many infos in ONE page. You can visit http://twitter.com/Madagas... and http://friendfeed.com/rooms... - Thierry R. Andriamirado
I usually don't have time to maintain my old blog, but I think twitter allows me to share to the community anyway. Combining twitter with sites that allow for comments and discussions give me more value than posting a blog that hardly anyone reads... - Frode Stenstrøm
I am cowed into speechlessness. - Moses Kpetigo
I post my tweets on my blog so I see it as an adjunct. - Phil Boiarski
so twitter as blogging is therefore committing suicide ~ ie this person's next blog post. Ie. someone missed the mark by a long shot. - sofarsoShawn
I think that it is. It has killed my blogs. Twitter is a lot more interactive and fun. - Adam Jackson
Twitter is interactive live blogging but I won't say it's killing blogging. Twitter is to blogging what a video clip is to a feature film. - Donald Townsend from twhirl
How the Bogus War between Google and Twitter/Friendfeed begins http://friendfeed.com/e... - ewing2001akaNicomedy2010
Killing blogging, no way. I personally think its taking blogging to an all new level. Not only can you promote blogs on twitter, the readers can now interact with you in a entirely new way. Twitter fills the cracks that the blog leaves behind. - Sloan Bowman
I've dabbled with "full-blown" blogging but most days don't have the time to write "essays". Or anything to say that's worth that number of words. I like Twitter for its immediacy and the way it makes you express the thought succinctly. Equally I like FF for being somewhere between the two. "Medium" blogging rather than full blown or micro. It's a mood thing yanno. - CdL Creative
Twitter is blogging -- just 140 chars per chunk. - David Feng
the one evolution that social networking services like FriendFeed and Twitter have over blogs is that we really can't see who's interested in our stuff. we can track RSS views, but we've no idea who they are. - Jason Salas from IM
Jim - the closer we get the traditional media demographic data, coupled with the new metrics, the real value of social apps will really shine through - Jason Salas
The days of stand-alone blogs as a primary revenue source are over - Bob Sonin

Embed FriendFeed Real-Time on Your Blog - http://www.fpettit.com/2009...
I would not recommend this for someone with a very active feed. I looked at @scobleizer and almost lost my lunch - David Knight
HA! Another option are the widgets from FFHolic which let you embed your most liked or commented items. It doesn't change as often and might give a better idea of the kind of material you post and what your followers enjoy. - FFing Enigma

Cisco's new wireless home audio wireless system #ces09
Linksys Wireless Home Audio competes with Sonos but built on open standards. DLNA and any UPNP universal plug and play. Much more flexible than Sonos. $299 for the player. http://www.shoplinksys.com me wants! - Robert Scoble from email
Clearly, you missed Alex's Bose post! ;) - Mona Nomura
Wonder how they handle delay... - mjc
Will be waiting to see a real review. - Eric - Final Countdown
you know what i want? go a head and steal my idea, just gimme a free one when made, i want a waterproof wireless stereo for the shower that streams my music from the computer. - David
Hrm... me being a tight wad sees that $299 and says no. Still see it cheaper to use Apple's Airtunes. - Dean Clark
have you played with Squeezebox (http://slimdevices.com) - great solution for every budget - offbeatmammal
What about electricity? - Vezquex
Because of Sonos' design and fantastic user experience, it is my my #1. The Sonos app on my iPhone makes it even easier to control the system (touch). I use it with Rhapsody and last.fm and the radio station update in version 2.7 of the system is just fantastic. Wondering if the Cisco system can ever be this good... - Alex Vermeule (@alexve)
i have a squeezebox (v2 i think), it ended up in the basement drawer. Too many niggles with the software not seeing half my files, not able to index all of them, not supporting ogg and many online audio sources - it wasnt open at all. Perhaps it is better now, or perhaps I was expecting too much - Iphigenie
@david I've been trying to think up of ways I could get music from my network playing in my bathroom without spending a fortune... I keep coming back to wireless speakers in the corner of the room and setting the music off before I go in. - alphaxion
I love my Squeezebox better (slimdevices.com), and it's been around for years. - andrei_c
7.1? - mal
+1 Alex. I'm fairly committed to my Sonos system and sing its praises to any guest that comes over. Great support and ease of use along with the many music services integrated (Pandora!) have set the bar fairly high. I could also see Sonos quickly matching the openness of the Linksys setup if that proved desirable and viable. - Dylan Parker

I can't believe it's almost Macworld/CES time again. What are you guys and gals hoping to see this year?
I like to see an apple netbook like mac. Also some more devices using android OS - Fee501st
I'd like to see Apple sell a netbook so I'm able to afford a Mac. - Sylvain Nadeau
I'd like to see more Android devices. - Mattie Kenny
An Apple netbook style device and the mythical iPhone Nano - the latter not because I want one, would just like to see the iPhone range start extending some ... - Patrick Jordan
a 32gb iPhone - Hobbsy
I think i see a trend here ;) - Fee501st
I asked the same question the other day on socialmedian. The consensus was an a netbook, or improving Apple TV. I want an iTablet;-) - Michael Fidler
I have the original Mac Mini hooked up to my TV and it is getting time for something new to fill that role. Waiting to see if Apple does *anything* at all with the ATV or the Mini. - Michael Pardee
@Michael Fidler: Oh man a Itablet would be awesome. didn't think of that! - Fee501st
I hope to see some new battery technologies debuted at CES. Re: "netbook", Psion owns that word and is sending letters to those who are using it on websites and products. Apple is finally getting away from the forced product announcements every January. They will release products when they are ready and on their own terms. At the keynote, expect an update on the progress of 10.6 and possibly a long overdue update to the Mac Mini. - Mike Shulman
Mac with *touch* screen technology like my iPhone (Michael's iTablet idea sounds great!) - Susan Beebe
I'd like to see more netbooks, ebook readers, and android devices. - imabonehead
Wow, check this eReader out ...full screen w/ touch ---> http://www.technologyreview.com/computi... and here http://www.plasticlogic.com/ - Susan Beebe
Moar android devices, plz. - Jonathan Hardesty
I'm hoping to see anything nice (to justify not purchasing for the holidays) - Adam Collins
+1 Susan, Plastic Logic is going to have a great product, I think... assuming they don't price it at $599 :-D - Karim
Cheaper OLED TV's! - Jason Wong
more android! - Mr. Gunn
An even faster apple workstation with the next generation FireWire. An even better large format Epson or Canon printer. I suppose if I ran into Veronica it wouldn't ruin my Macworld. - Jim Goldstein
I had the opportunity to go to several COMDEX shows, but 2009 will be my first CES. I want to find more devices using Android OS / Google Chrome browser. - Julio F ~ @SocialJulio
Differently a Mac netbook or tablet... - John Spencer
Too much Mac/netbook here... need to see something really innovative in getting IP and Broadcast video sources together in the home so ordinary people get a wider view. - Ian D. Nock
I just wanna see you Veronica. Realistically though, I'd like to see an 8" Mini MacBook. - Brad Stolba
for CES...affordable LCD TVs that are larger than 52"! - Mark Krynsky
Ian +1. How about a wireless way to make all these audio and video components talking? The beginning of the end for cabling? - Michael Pardee
I'm getting pretty interested to see what Palm produces at CES - Jay
Nothing...these shows are so irrelevant these days. All you see are the latest LCDs that are pretty much just like last year's LCD HDTVs. I don't really care how good something looks on the demo floor...it's how it performs at home that counts. - Scoble, Alex Scoble

Why Santa Cruz is known for surfing (photo and discussion): - http://www.flickr.com/photos...
Why Santa Cruz is known for surfing (photo and discussion):
There are lots of places in the world that are better to surf at, I'm sure, but Santa Cruz has built a brand around surfing that's known world wide. Why? Here's why. Any normal idiot photographer can take photos like this of surfers. I'm using a 100mm lens. Nothing special. No big ass huge 600mm F4.0 that you need to get good surfing shots at other spots (Half Moon Bay's Mavericks, for instance, has a lot bigger surf and a famous contest every year, but you can't take good photos of it with a 100mm lens). I'm standing on dry ground just a few feet away from the surfing action right by a pretty cute lighthouse. As they say, location, location, location. Hang 10 dude! - Robert Scoble from Bookmarklet
I have been to the Santa Cruz beaches many upon many a times. The surfers are amazing, and the waves are awesome. - Bryan Garcia
I was wondering why you didn't share any pictures of Mavericks, considering you live in Half Moon Bay, but I didn't consider the fact that you would need such a long lens. The waves must break a half mile out there. - Michael Fidler
So this could be extrapolated to marketing, in that you need to make it easy for others to spread your message. - Alistair (alpinefolk)
Michael: yeah, they do break quite a ways off shore. The best photos are done from jet skis or helicopters. - Robert Scoble
Alistair: exactly! - Robert Scoble
I went to santa cruz this summer to try surfing for the first time and the one day we chose was completely flat. - Daniel Zarick
Daniel: It wasn't flat today. Many of the waves were 10 feet or higher. - Robert Scoble
Hi Daniel: the key word is "summer." Go back sometime this winter. - Jean Shirk
I grew up in Huntington Beach aka Surf City and I've traveled CA a bunch, especially surf towns all along PCH like Newport, Laguna, Seal, Ventura, and Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz is *unique* in it's PEOPLE. They have a very laid back nature, and the beaches are quite good for real surfing...no cheesy 3 foot waves like Santa Barbara LOL - Susan Beebe
Which break is this? It's a lovely wave (sigh)... - Jean Shirk
Jean: it's right by the lighthouse. I am not sure what the actual name is called, but I heard people calling it lighthouse. Not sure if that's accurate, though. - Robert Scoble
Most likely it is the Steamer Lane (see: http://www.santacruzsurfers.com/Pages...). Sometimes you can get even closer shots from that spot: http://www.pbase.com/jacekw... (if you climb over a barrier ;) - jacek
Jacek: that's very possible! I stayed behind the barrier. I should have played Thomas Hawk and gone over the barrier! :-) - Robert Scoble
And then we'd have to read your post about getting in trouble for taking photos where you're not supposed to! - James D Kirk
Check out Leica pictures -- really nice http://www.flickr.com/cameras... - Michael Krigsman
This is why I like Huntington Beach - the Pier there is an awesome place for surfing pics. - Jesse Stay
awesome - Jasmine

Quantcast Shows Which Services Rely Most on Their "Addicts" - http://www.louisgray.com/live...

There is NO middle ground. You're addicted, or you're not using it. - Louis Gray
As others have mentioned other places, mere traffic is a bad gauge of use. There are some rooms I visit maybe once every two weeks, but even I still find it useful, and would if I did nothing else on friendfeed. - Mr. Gunn
We'll I guess I could be a little addicted ...heheheeee! So what do you call someone whe does 30 visits per DAY? (better yet, never closes that tab!) - Susan Beebe

hooray for the pretty crayons! :D In all seriousness, this is a nice post by Mike (again!) :) - Susan Beebe
Louis, this is the best piece of advice I've read on the matter so far. Congratulations. - Rubin Sfadj
@Rubin, Mike is a very smart guy and he writes clearly. Glad you liked the piece. - Louis Gray

Thanks Louis. Good post. - Rod Bauer from twhirl
There is also getting inside of a firestorm like the last couple of days for me, although keeping even a percentage of the traffic is going to be hard now the storm is subsiding. Any advice on that one? - Ian D. Nock from twhirl

Good post especially for anyone starting off in blogging, I would recommend reading this - Rajiv Doshi
@Mohomed: oops, just noticed I just wrote 'Congratulations'. Thanks for correcting me. Congratulations, _Mark_ ;) - Rubin Sfadj

Yikes could it be more blatant? =/ Perhaps it's intended as flattery? It is a great post (on the site where it belongs, though!) - ilene
@Louis - people unclear on the concept .... at least they linked to Mike's blog! - Laura Norvig
