"I am just guessing but the Flash plugin might be the one to blame here. I don’t have Flash on my Chrome but use the IE Tab extension so if I need to watch a video inside Chrome, I can open it in an IE Tab." - Amit Agarwal

Why I am Excited About the iPad - http://gigaom.com/2010...
"..Paper and pencils were expensive and were restricted to finishing up school assignments or “homework” as it was called back then. Kids still use the term “homework” in this part of the world :) Brilliant piece, Om." - Amit Agarwal

Google is NOT Reducing Share of AdSense Publishers - http://techie-buzz.com/adsense...
"“AdSense ads are displayed in several major Google initiatives including Google Search, YouTube and Gmail. ” I am only talking about “Google Network Revenues” (ie, revenue generated from sites not owned by Google) so where’s that “big hole” ?" - Amit Agarwal

"Tim, Open the contacts link in your Gmail inbox and you'll see a section that says "Most contacted" For creation date, you should probably look at the last page of your Gmail inbox or the sent items page to get an idea. I have also add this here: http://labnol.org/?p=11799 Thanks. Amit" - Amit Agarwal

Say Hello to the New New GigaOM - http://gigaom.com/2009...
"Om - The design is clean but my favorite part is "Across the Network" section near the footer - very well done. Some observations - looks like the Facebook connect integration needs some fixing. Also, I can see just one ad (from WebEx) on the page. Is it because of my geographic location (India) or have you reduced ad spots with the new design. Just curious to know. And would love to see a weekly email digest for "Best of GigaOm"." - Amit Agarwal

"Matt, would you also not recommend using nofollow for pages like “policy & terms”, “contact us”, etc. Like the RSS feed, it doesn’t make sense to have these pages in Google results." - Amit Agarwal

Wow, I replied to enough tweets just now (~60) that Twitter won't let me send any more tweets. It's an uncomfortable reminder that Twitter != the open web.
so you decided to continue on friendfeed? - Mike Dammann
Not sure why you bother with Twitter myself. I just have FF push my comments through to Twitter and never go to it anymore. I have added all of the people I follow on twitter as Imaginary Friends here (really there are not many ;)) and use FF as my sole interface now. - travispuk
denied! they probably were searching on google, got one of those "we think you aren't human" message and decided to get even, matt. but just think, now you can be all scobleish over here. - dannysullivan
"Twitter != Open web" - Reminds me of Gmail that has a sending limit as well http://www.labnol.org/interne... - Amit Agarwal
Spammer :P ... I kid I kid! - Tony Adam
Amit, but it's pretty darn hard to hit Gmail's sending limits (500 people at a time) if you're just sitting and doing normal work. And I can still send email in other ways because email is an open/federated standard. With Twitter, the whole ecosystem is theirs, so if they don't like how many people you reply to, tough luck. - Matt Cutts
Matt, we use GApps here at work and I think we are just under the limit on sending. The issue we have is that we have a couple of accounts that are used on the Apps account for announcing to our clients new versions of software and critical issues etc. We are only lucky that at the moment our client base is under the limit... to be clear though these are our actual clients who we provide support services to, not a mailing list of 'potential' clients. - travispuk
There are Twitter accounts that regurgitate the same messages over and over. I'm happy with limits on those, which are a nuisance. But many times people are just communicating a lot with unique messages and I can't see stifling those. - Alan Eggleston
ff is much better for rapid fire conv anyway - mike "glemak" dunn
~60 @replies? You must be some kind of spammer. - Christian Burns
Matt, it all boils down to network effect otherwise there are feasible alternatives to Twitter when it comes to Microblogging like identi.ca, jaiku and many more. Imagine how cool it would be if all these were federated and we could cross communicate (ala Google wave). - Abhishek Sharma
In the absence of significant competition or people like RMS (who put their philosophical beliefs ahead of convenience or utility) what motivation does the owner of a walled garden (with many tenants) have to open up or federate? - Adewale Oshineye
The #twitterjail limits were apparently decreased in the last week or so. I've seen a HUGE upsurge in the number of people complaining about this, and/or establishing secondary sending accounts for when they're rate limited. Strangely enough, it seems that smaller accounts are rate limited at smaller numbers than large accounts. So any claim from Twitter that this is architecturally related is hogwash - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Note that Laconi.ca based services like Identi.ca *are* federated. An Identi.ca user can subscribe to and dent @ an army.twit.tv user. - Michael R. Bernstein
The big problem, is that they keep them a secret (until you exceed them) and they do not apply them in equal or equivalent fashions. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
