Wow. Synchronicity's not just a Police album. - Micah
Living in San Francisco I know friends and family with a post-quake meet-up plan: when all the phone lines/internet are down and you can't get anywhere in the city, everybody's going to meet at X. There's also somebody outside the area who's the designated point of contact: you let them know you're alright and where you are as soon as you can, and everybody else just gets in touch with that person if/when they can.... - Ken Sheppardson
Ken's right, and the only logical muster point is the top of the Empire State building. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

The wife just ordered her D800 which means I get her hand-me-down D700! Now to find a good home for the D200... #Nikon
Are you looking to sell it? I would be interested as I can give it as a gift to someone that wants to learn about photography. - Me
Not making any plans yet. It'll still be a couple months before the D800 comes anyhow. :-) - Kevin Fox
Any big photo trips coming up? Antarctica is hard to follow. - Bruce Lewis from iPhone

D800 looks slick, but I think the sweet spot's going to be camping out and picking up used D700s in the ~$1500 range. :-) - Ken Sheppardson
Wasn't patient enough: used D700 acquired. BOOM - Ken Sheppardson

I’m Leaving TechCrunch. Here’s Why. -
Paul Carr goes nuclear. Bring popcorn. - Louis Gray
Paul Carr can go where ever the hell he wants. He lives in hotels for crying out loud. - NOT THE CRICKET
"utterly devoid of hap" is a nice turn of phrase, though. - Laura Norvig
Love that he makes much of the betrayal of Mike and Heather, but the better candidate who loses out due to maternity leave gets short shrift. - Jennifer Dittrich
^ This. - Friar Will
A little confused. When you sell you lose all control. What did they expect? - Todd Hoff
That the rules of business, like the rules of journalism, didn't apply to them. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I suspect Arrington expected to retire. He's done so pretty ingeniously. Seems like right now the fate of TC's up to MG. - Ken Sheppardson
Good riddance mutherfucker, save Huffington from taking out more trash - sofarsoShawn
Shawn, she's losing all the people worth a damn, and ending up with only the trash left. There's only 3 people left worth a damn, MG, Sarah, and Alexia. - NOT THE CRICKET
That's why these kind of acquisitions are puzzling. They are based on the people which tend to move on. - Todd Hoff
Well, based on the fact the acquiring company doesn't actually *realize* it's about people. Sort of an old media view, where they're buying up the TechCrunch "audience", "brand", etc. - Ken Sheppardson
Then shame on Arrington for selling to them in the first place. I see a lot of similarities between this and the whole Crunchpad fiasco. Mike makes a bad choice and acts all surprised when it doesn't work out. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Schonfeld just tweeted this: "I accept your resignation @paulcarr. Nice timing to post that while I am on a plane. You are a misinformed coward." These guys are worse than a bunch of teenage girls. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

At $99 I'd buy an HP Touchpad and decide what to do with it later.
This is just yet another incredibly boneheaded move by HP. As much as they insist webOS isn't dead and might be sold or licensed, this fire sale means that devices that could've gone to existing, dedicated webOS developers and hackers are now going to end up in junk drawers and as dedicated Angry Birds devices. - Ken Sheppardson
+1 Ken - .LAG liked that
On the plus side, Angry Birds is awesome. - Mike Nayyar
Well, yeah. - Ken Sheppardson
Where can I get one? - Amit Patel
I haven't been able to find it anywhere for $99. - Rodfather
Yeah, most places at $99 have sold out. One place (Staples? Office Max? I forget) had it for $129. - Kevin Fox
Office Depot had the 16GB for $129 and the 32GB for $149. They're sold out online. - Ken Sheppardson
swapping out webOS for Android or Ubuntu seems possible... cf. - Adriano
I hope so. Given HP's incompetence I think the best thing that could happen for the tablet market is for non-iOS folks to unify behind Android. - Ken Sheppardson
And now HP is (apparently) saying they'll refund the difference to current TouchPad owners. Does this mean anybody can just buy a TouchPad anywhere right now for whatever price and they'll get a price match courtesy of HP? If you're a retailer with TouchPad's right now, what do you do? Pull them? Cut the price? I'm sure retailers with existing stock are just loving HP right now. [] - Ken Sheppardson
...that there's a groundswell of interest at the lower price point says something. it's clear HP didn't/doesn't know what exactly they're holding in their hands - .LAG liked that
I think all it says is that when people see something that was $499/$599 that was being sold for $99/$149 they just assume they're getting a great deal and buy it, no matter what it is. I'll bet 80%+ of the people buying it have never held a webOS device. - Ken Sheppardson
But geez... according to HP the TouchPad's a super slick device. All the old promos are sill on their site. You think Apple would ever do something this poorly coordinated? - Ken Sheppardson, Apple must be laughing at this comedy of errors. I feel suckered, with my Pre, waiting for HP to save webOS... now I'm just trying to decide if I go IOS or Android. I really wanted webOS to be that alternative, that anti-conformist option, but it seems to be mismanaged from end to end - .LAG liked that
I know what I'd do with one of these now. I really want to find one at the blowout price, because (1) HP's losing money on every one, (2) I can help with the Android port and (3) I want to re-enact the printer scene from the end of Office Space. - Ken Sheppardson
I'm kind of an odd duck. My only point of reference for tablets is iPad. I bought one last year for my brother. He loved it but the experience of using it left me cold. Give me my old school notebook with its actual keys. If/when they're ready to pay me to take a touchpad off their hands, perhaps I'll consider it. - Jim #teamFFrank
read that a guy bought one before the store sold out at $99, then returned it to get a refund on the price difference. - Adriano
I think this is setting us up for a really interesting experiment in what value the public really puts on tablets: Right now eBay prices for TouchPads are still $200+, but as the first wave of $99/$149 ship over the next week, we'll likely see a glut from folks who bought them specifically to resell. With so much inventory dumped on the market, I'd expect the price to eventually drop down near (or below) $99/$149. Whether that happens and how long it takes should be a good indication of the "real" value. - Ken Sheppardson

Now who will be the first to buy a carrier, Apple or Google? Sprint market cap is just over $10B (up 8.75% today).
We can only hope one of them will. Even better: The ATT / T-Mobile merger is denied. Apple buys one of them, Google buys the other. The mobile carrier market needs some serious disruption. - Tinfoil 2.0
None of them. If anything, Microsoft will become a soft carrier, followed quickly by Apple, then Google. Here are some thoughts I had on that a few months ago: - Kevin Fox
Someone please. That's where we need real disruption. - Todd Hoff
Realistically, no carrier has first-class coverage everywhere, and neither Apple or Google would tie their own product image to a single carrier's coverage area (again). Everyone's learned by watching the love/hate relationship users have with Apple and AT&T the past four years. No way they hobble themselves to a single physical infrastructure. - Kevin Fox
Buying a carrier doesn't mean that they couldn't still sell phones on the other carriers and more than buying Motorola precludes them from putting Android on Samsung devices. - Paul Buchheit
Would SprintApple still sell Android and Windows phones? - Kevin Fox
Carriers are so much about commoditized physical infrastructure that I'd have to believe Apple is looking for a way to make them obsolete, rather than buying one for themselves. - Kevin Fox
Amazon? -- Since they're already using Sprint for the Kindle. Might also make for some interesting Twilio-style additions to AWS - Ken Sheppardson
Amazon no longer uses Sprint for the Kindle. It uses AT&T. It was the only way to get global coverage. - Piaw Na
Aha. Got it. Meaning the newer K3 (and K2?) use AT&T? Y'know given the differing radio/network technologies, I wonder if anybody'd want Sprint, with all the inherent coverage limitations. - Ken Sheppardson
If Amazon would build a pneumatic tube delivery service underneath everyone's homes and businesses (to replace FedEx/UPS/OnTrac), they could also put Wi-Max or LTE in their tubes, so that the Internet would actually be a series of tubes. - Amit Patel
Tubes have been replaced with solar powered automated driving delivery vehicles. Not quite as romantic, or com friendly, but it uses the existing road system. - Todd Hoff
I don't think Apple wants any part of a deal to buy plumbing. If they can cover that plumbing in gold plate and sell it as an experience, then maybe. Microsoft, on the other hand, has plenty of cash and doesn't mind being a plumber. - Eric - ill subliminal
Trucks? Tubes? Pfft... Autonomous solar-powered drones that dock at giant floating fulfillment center airships are the way to go. Get around the whole state-by-state tax problem once and for all. Just float over them. - Ken Sheppardson
Ooh, delivery by airdrop. I like it. - Amit Patel
Plus you tie this in with an app on your Android device and you'd get a little alert that says "You're package is available for delivery... please step outside"... BAM - Ken Sheppardson
Airspace tax zones would be sure to follow :-) And I think the economics of lifting goods into the air will have to wait for zero-point energy devices. - Todd Hoff
Lifting goods is cheap on the space pulley. You put a chunk of asteroid on one side and you put a container of goods on the other side. Make sure the asteroid is heavier, and it will go down as the goods go up. You extract the precious metals out of the asteroid and use that money to fund development of your delivery spacecraft, which is orbiting the Earth at supersonic speeds, picking up goods from the space pulley and releasing them at just the right time to hit Ken on the head. - Amit Patel
I figure eventually they'll just have fab plants on the moon. Solar power turns moon rocks into whatever you need, and the end products get railgunned out of the moon's gravity well and fall straight to your home with a guided descent with last-minute parachute braking. The fun part is that your Amazon Prime cutoff time will be dependent on the moon's relative position to you, so it... more... - Kevin Fox
Since this conversation looks to be officially derailed, I vote for some form of Wonka-Vision to be the distribution method of choice for Amazon prime... - Ross Miller
That or skyhooks. - Kevin Fox
Until I parsed "Sprint" I was sure you are talking about the actual warship, you know, Invincible class carrier is now supposedly on closed auction in UK :) - Michael Bravo
Well, yeah, I guess that ties in with the Amazon sub-thread nicely. They probably are the most likely to be the first to buy a carrier, e.g. - Ken Sheppardson
Although as far as sub-threads go, this'd probably be more appropriate: - Ken Sheppardson
The first thought that came into my head was "Aircraft Carrier" to use as a Datacenter... - Stuart Woodward
I can't help but giggle at a photographer basically spoofing over Google+ all the while not using his real name
I guess G+'s real policy is while you have to use a real name, it doesn't necessarily have to be yours. - Ken Sheppardson
Who's not using their real name? - NOT THE CRICKET
I don't know if this is who Johnny's referring to, but Thomas Hawk is a pseudonym. It is the name he uses for photography, but it isn't his "real" name the way that Google defines it. There are a lot of cases like that where people are using their professional name, not "real" one, but it sounds close enough to real that Google hasn't noticed or is giving them a pass because they're famous (not just internet famous). - Jennifer Dittrich
Here's one of my favorite Thomas Hawk or Andrew Peterson stories: - Brian Johns
Brian, that was a very interesting read. - Kol Tregaskes

When does California start talking about secession? :-)
Wait until I move there, plz. - Alix May
Certainly not before we get our financial house in order. We're in worse shape than the federal government, if you can believe that. - Victor Ganata
How 'bout we just take Oregon and Washington state, along with a little buffer zone to the east and just make the continental divide the border? - Ken Sheppardson
Well, yeah... forming an actual government would have to be part of the process. - Ken Sheppardson
And 5 years after it seceded, it'd break into the states of Ecotopia & Letitburninate. - Spidra Webster
If we could make desalination cost-effective, the coastal cities could probably be self-sufficient. As it is, though, I think there would be a destructive international water war over the rights to the water of the Eastern Sierras and of the Colorado River. - Victor Ganata
Likely true. *goes out to wash car and water lawn at high noon like a good Angeleno* - Spidra Webster
The one army I might be wiling to join.. but won't ever happen. CA politicians are wimps and scoundrels. - Me
If only Ah-nuld were still Governator. You know he always wanted to be President. President of the Republic of California might have satisfied him. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Here you go: A Petition for California's Secession from the Federal Government - - Todd Hoff
LOL. I thought it had already. Didn't they build that big electric fence to keep the other guys out?? :) - Winckel
I thought that was Arizona :) - comix aka martha
Since when did we start believing in State's Rights? - Ryan Kaisoglus
Victor: The water problem is one reason the continental divide's probably the best border... - Ken Sheppardson
I have a feeling Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona might object :D - Victor Ganata
We already have check points at all major highways into the state. It would be easy to change them from checking for fruit trees to "Can I see your papers." - Me
Pfft... Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Arizona are mostly desert and mountains anyway. We can take 'em. Besides, we'd only want half. Well, half-ish of Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico that is.... I'll bet Utah, Nevada and AZ would just fall in line. - Ken Sheppardson
Y'know we'd eventually get into a whole N vs S thing in CA... maybe we'd be better off just letting Them keep LA and SD and worry about all the water stuff. We chould just draw an east-west line at Hearst Castle and turn it into part of, like, a real string of border outposts. Or better yet, have the line head up at an angle that puts Fresno in the South. - Ken Sheppardson
We could divide up the state like and have N CA take the rest of Lake Tahoe. Fresno's not so bad, is it? It'd be our gateway to the south. - Amit Patel
I don't think that's going to fly too well. North and South intact, California has a world-class economy. Split into two or three different states or countries, not so much. - Victor Ganata
Any sustainable nation would need to have L.A. County, since it has the two busiest ports in North America. - Victor Ganata
We could shift that back to Oakland easily enough, I would think. Silicon Valley must be one of if not the larges economic drivers in the state. It'd be interesting to see somebody do an analysis of imports/exports by county... - Ken Sheppardson
The ports of L.A. and Long Beach move about 7 times more containers than the port of Oakland does, and access to the rest of the continent isn't limited seasonally. All of the national defense infrastructure is essentially situated in San Diego County. You leave So Cal to the U.S., and they might not mind the rest of the state going, to languish as a third world country. - Victor Ganata
Good point(s). If we're going to include SoCal, maybe we should just push on out into Mexico? Pick up all the just-over-the-border manufacturing capability that's been built out by US corps. Or is that all over under Texas? - Ken Sheppardson
LMAO California secession? Maybe when Suze Orman isn't TRYING to balance the budget w/ Excel:) - sofarsoShawn
The manufacturing capacity south of the existing border is really only cost-effective because they're evading minimum wage laws, so that might be counterproductive. And then there are the drug lords who might not like the fact that gringos are impinging on their territory. They're the main reason why I think we'll need the military capability from San Diego County, really. - Victor Ganata

Fax, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes

They fax much better if you flatten them first. What? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

It's a hyper-local mobile application for social travel recommendations. Only 200 applications in, and I'm already losing my mind.
Hyper local... like... 5 feet either side of me? - Johnny
Also, it's somehow related to GroupOn. - Paul Buchheit
That's all about the idea. What does the application tell you about the team? - Bruce Lewis

Wow! those look amazing! - Rachel Lea Fox
Nom. - Derrick

ITS A TARP Let me taste them first! - nouhad
I sorta doubt it's part of the Troubled Assets Relief Program, but then again FriendFeed is no AIG. - Ken Sheppardson
I only send Old Time Candy. Not me! - Louis Gray
Looks like someone is attempting to bribe you to divulge information prior to Monday. - Mark Krynsky

This sounds like an exchange I'll never forget between a reporter and an Olympic athlete. The reporter asked where she got the discipline to train long and hard every day. The athlete's response was that what many people mistake for discipline is actually passion. It's because she really wanted to be her best. - Bruce Lewis
Off-topic, can you install tweetmeme on your blog, I would like to re-post it without too many steps ;-) - joergkurtwegner

Y Combinator announces two new partners, Paul Buchheit and Harj Taggar -
"We're delighted to announce that Y Combinator is getting two new partners, the first we've added since we started YC in 2005. In case anyone doesn't already know who he is, Paul Buchheit was responsible for three of the best things Google has done: he wrote GMail, built the original prototype of AdSense, and came up with the phrase "Don't be evil." After leaving Google he started FriendFeed, which last year became Facebook's largest acquisition to date. He's a good friend as well as one of the world's best hackers; for years we've considered him an honorary YC partner. We hired Harj Taggar earlier this year to work advising startups alongside me. He wasn't technically a partner, but we quickly realized that he was one de facto—that among us his opinion carried as much weight as any of ours—and that it would be mean of us to delay recognizing this officially. Harj's arrival significantly improved how well YC operated. He's a large part of the reason we were able to fund 36 startups in the summer 2010 cycle." - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Congratulations, Paul! - Ross Miller
Cheers Paul. Awesome partnership. - Christopher Galtenberg
Congratulations, Paul!!! - AJ Batac
Would love if you guys devised a new concept: 2nd-shift startup. Many of us are working jobs we need and/or love, but are trying to build a new thing in the background. Having a bit of money, support, and networking would make all the difference. We're completely alone until we make the big leap. And many with families and bills can't think about leaping into Paul G's YC experience. - Christopher Galtenberg
Congrats, Paul! - Andrew Terry
Congrats! - Barbara R. S.
Congrats Paul. Are you going to do that *and* stay at Facebook? And have time for the family? - Joe Beda
You have to stay at Facebook at least long enough to get that damn search fixed! - Gabe
No, I'll be leaving Facebook to join YC. - Paul Buchheit
Also, I made some search changes a few days ago so it should be working a little better now. - Paul Buchheit
Congrats and best of luck to you at YC. Sorry to hear you won't be able to make further FF tweaks in the future, though! - Stephen Mack
Paul, was one of the changes preventing people who aren't logged in from searching? I can't believe that would have as much of an effect on search as it may have been. - Akiva
Congratulations! - Eric Florenzano
Wow. So much for our hope of Buchheit/Taylor running FB! - Christopher Galtenberg
YC to acquire FB, circa 2013. - Stephen Mack
Congrats - Rodfather
This is fantastic news. You're in the right place, Paul. - Louis Gray from Android
Congrats Paul! - DJ Stevie Steve
congrats paul - testbeta
Congratulations Paul! - Atul Arora
Wow, congrats, but I didn't realize you're leaving Facebook. Wow. - Robert Scoble
Congratulations! - Anne Bouey
It's interesting. I remember seeing you shortly after you sold FriendFeed and hearing you advise a startup on what they should do. I thought you were great at that, and I guess that is a real passion. YCombinator is an amazing organization, can't wait to see what you do there. - Robert Scoble
Congrats! - John (bird whisperer)
Right on, Robert. - Bruce Lewis
Congratulations on following your heart! - Kevin Fox
I'm also wondering if this has any impact on FriendFeed. Certainly there's one fewer voice inside FriendFeed protecting the service. I wonder if Paul can tell the community now what he expects to happen to the service. Already a good chunk of the FriendFeed team has left. - Robert Scoble
Paul: I doubt you can answer this one, either, but I'd love to know what it is about Facebook that is already pushing away entrepreneurial types. It looks like it's becoming a big company, with all the politics and such. I was expecting you to make a much bigger impact there long term than it looks like you've been able to make. Want to come on camera to explain why things didn't work out? - Robert Scoble
I second that, I'd like it if he could talk. \o, - Zu from AOD
Congrats! But who will be looking after the Friendfeed servers now? *sorry to be so selfish* - Eric - ill subliminal
Robert, it has less to do with Facebook and more to do with me. I'm just more excited about helping new entrepreneurs create the next Facebook or Google. I'd be glad to chat sometime. - Paul Buchheit
Great news on one hand since you could do so much to help others but, sad news on the other since I felt you were a very positive force in Facebook's continuing development. - AJ Kohn
Awesomeness!!! Congrats Paul!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Now you can create the next Friendfeed. - CristianConti
Fantastic Paul - Y Combinator is becoming a bigger force. Congrats to you. - Hutch Carpenter
good luck! :) - salaros
This seems like the perfect job for you - have fun! (and thanks for fixing the search ... I thought that might have been Ben G. ... make sure he knows how to do it mmmkay??) - Laura Norvig
Congratulations Paul - Shakeel Mahate

Congratulation and good luck, tell us something about FriendFeed.... - @zaps
congratulations - kang
What will this mean for FF? Just curious - LANjackal
Obi-Ben Kenolub is now our only hope. - Josh Haley
Not sure LAN, that was my first worry. It's a Facebook property though, so I don't know if Paul can do anything with it now. Not sure. - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
Paul, now I need to share with you my next world-changing idea (seriously). Congrats! (is this the butterfly? ;-) ) - Jesse Stay
Congrats Paul! Right move. You are going to the right place. - vivekian
