What other social networking/Web 2.0 sites do you use besides FriendFeed?
Bumblr, Snickr, YouTuba, but nowhere any good. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Or anywhere no good. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Nothing you haven't heard of. :) (Twitter, Flickr, FB...need to spend more time learning Quora and Reddit). - Spidra Webster
Flickr - WarLord
I tried out Ello. - Stephen Mack
Twitter, Twitter, and more Twitter. Also Github. - Mike Chelen
FB and Twitter. Very occasionally G+. - Jenny H. from Android
What Jenny said - Laura Norvig from iPhone
FB and rarely G+. - Anne Bouey
Twitter and FB, a little bit of G+ and Tumblr. - Melly Claus #anticaper
Livejournal. - bentley
not sure what you mean by web 2.0 but I hit twitter every morning for a quick scan of the news, feedly for the blogs I want to read, and tumblr is a distraction for my increasingly fractured mind. I think of tumblr as a glossy magazine where I flip through the pages. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Feedly, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Oh, and Ello, from time to time. - Steven Perez from Android
Yeah I guess I should add that I do use Facebook to interact generally with family and a few friends. But Facebook's noise to signal ratio is too high for me to use it for much else. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
plus.google.com, news.ycominator.com. I keep intending to use facebook but don't generally get to it. I caught up with Instagram yesterday, thanks to the fact that I'm only following something like 4 people there. - Bruce Lewis
g+ and feedly. - imabonehead
G+ daily, Twitter 2-3 times a day, FB once or twice a day, but only really active on FF. (As with MoTO, FB's mostly for family. - Walt Crawford
Twitter and Google+. - Louis Gray
None. I'm a purist. - Steve C Team Marina
Barry, I'm not sure what I meant by Web 2.0, other than there are sites that have some social component to them, but are not really thought of as social networks, e.g. Yelp. - Heisenberg
What are people's impressions of Ello? - Heisenberg
Wasn't ready for beta. Very few features at beta. More now, but no users. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Just Twitter (for light use) -- not Facebook or Google+. Still waiting for any other service to catch up with Friendfeed -- and for the next generation of a Friendfeed-like service to appear -- someone is bound to develop it. - Sean McBride
Any interesting features that FriendFeed doesn't have? - Heisenberg
screensaver. - imabonehead
I've got a huge list of features to add to Friendfeed that I've collected since 2007. I need to pull those notes together and post them as a single document. - Sean McBride
Facebook - Ozgur Demir
I just checked out the latest Twitter analytics features -- great stuff. A future version of a Friendfeed-style social media platform should include analytics at this level (and better) for all individual and group feeds (*especially* group feeds, which are ripe for hundreds of analytic snapshots). - Sean McBride
Sean, I'm interested in your feaure list. - Heisenberg
Italian Friendfeed like service: http://www.frenf.it/earlyad... - miki
Geocities - Maurizio
Heisenberg -- give me a few days to find time to compile it -- the notes are scattered across six or seven years. - Sean McBride
My admiration and love for the brilliant design of Friendfeed continues unabated -- in fact, it keeps increasing as I compare it to new inferior services. - Sean McBride
Has everyone noticed that Friendfeed is often more efficient than email for private one-on-one and group communications? Much less cruft. Much swifter. Much easier to browse over time. Also superior to text messaging in many cases, in terms of interface. - Sean McBride
Sean, you should look at Slack if you have a group of people that interact. It's better than FriendFeed for a slightly different application area. - Heisenberg
Will do. - Sean McBride
First, quick impression of Slack (I need to look at it much more carefully): conversations on Friendfeed pages are much easier to navigate and read. - Sean McBride

BitTorrent will make a comeback ... - John Taschek

Well, Kevin, send a link:-) - Francine Hardaway

J.C.: he has a point but Facebook is one hell of a company. Did you see Instagram is now worth $30 billion? - Robert Scoble
but what if the Hobbit people don't like THEIR movie? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Robert: yes, I did see the valuation of IG, and I don't completely agree w/ES...I think there's more to Facebook than just mobile use ramp that eventually plateaus. - J.C. Bouvier

The Atlantic had a pretty good article on the death of the internet and used yikyak as an example - http://www.theatlantic.com/technol... - John Taschek
web you mean? - Kevin Marks
I didn't write it! - John Taschek
new vulnerability in the Yik Yak iOS application, http://silverskylabs.github.io/yakhak... - christina sponselli

They also had an imminent demise of Facebook because of apps like YikYak - it was a very interesting article - http://www.theatlantic.com/magazin... - John Taschek
they try hard not to employ anyone - Kevin Marks
People always get in the way - John Taschek

Clive - the Singularity is Near - John Taschek
2 orange trees, a lemon tree, an apricot, an apple and a plum - Kevin Marks

Laura Norvig
so ... trying to empty out my Mom's condo. My SIL is helping a bunch. She's also chosen a few small pieces of furniture that I was actually hoping to keep. Tomorrow is my day to work on this with my brother (her husband). Do I mention that I was eyeing those pieces also? Or do I just let it go?
I always feel like they did so much to help my mom that I kind of owe them whatever they want. I just felt miffed about the way she snagged them. Felt like I tried to mention that I was also interested and it went wooosh over her head. - Laura Norvig
Tough one. I'd say something to my brother just to know I did so and not have the risk of a lingering resentment. Then if it's something you can work out amenably all the better, but if not let it go. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
it's really not that big a deal, she's just a bit of a tough one to deal with sometimes. I'll probably be better off picking new furniture at home - not like these are sentimental pieces, they were just nice, useful, end/side/bedside table thingies. - Laura Norvig
You want I should talk to her? *cracks knuckles* - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
feeling good today - my brother KICKED ASS helping to empty the place. Tomorrow I'm pondering the books. Several thousand books. - Laura Norvig
luckily books are really easy to pack. If you don't stop to open them all and get lost in reading them! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Did you make a decision about the furniture? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
My mom metnioned that when she and her brothers wanted something and more than one person wanted an item, names went into a hat. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Even if it's not a sentimental piece, it may become one in time if it brings back memories. It wouldn't hurt to mention that you'd like to have something. - Anne Bouey
No, I am letting them go because although one of them is pretty nice, I want to be more deliberate about furnishing the new place. I'm taking two unfinished pine pieces, a dresser and a small cabinet, that will be useful. Taking enough sentimental art, china, knicknacks. Rudi, I can't bear to take the books. Feels like it should be all or nothing. I don't know. Will try to pick a box full tomorrow. Writing some blogs posts about it. - Laura Norvig

People, nonprofits and small businesses who send out frequent mass e-mails and don't offer an easy way to unsubscribe.
violation of the CAN-SPAM act. http://www.business.ftc.gov/documen... - Laura Norvig
worse, though? using the cc field for mass emails. unbelievably, I just got an email from my new mortgage servicer, that had a bunch of patrons emails in the cc field! Which I never would have noticed but somebody called them out on it by using reply-all and demanding that they now pay for identity theft protection for us. - Laura Norvig

Gotta say SFO's new Terminal 2 (American, Virgin America) might be best terminal in US now after the upgrades rest of the airport still blows. :) Lots of space, lots of light, lots of good unique food.
is it unique good food? or just good unique? - Sir Shuping is just sir
I love that terminal. Also, Virgin is the best airline! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
The Virgin international terminal at JFK has two Shake Shacks. It's insane. - Meg VMeg
I'll be there tomorrow morning! - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Here I am. Napa Farms Market. I want to eat all the things. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Funny story. I was so engrossed in Soda Crush Saga I didn't notice my driver was taking me to San Jose airport. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Oh god, I was annoyed by the food in the American terminal at SFO. Sometimes a person just wants something basic. Took way too much energy and effort to find basic food that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. I was much happier with the other end of the flight - the American terminal at O'Hare. Now that place is awesome. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Next time I want to try Cat Cora's Kitchen - forgot that was there. - Laura Norvig
Hmm Hookuh I am like you in searching for basic I can't eat most fancy food and don't like the rest but I had ample choices when looking around and the tacos at Andeleje (sp?) ended up being perfect under ten bucks for a meal and best tacos i've had in a while. But it's very subjective I know. :) - Steve C Team Marina
I'm hanging at the airport with you next time! - Hookuh Tinypants

We are having several friends over and I want to get some small, inexpensive gifts to give out -- like the $10 range. Ideas?
Coffee mugs with treats? - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
That's exactly the sort of thing. - Jason P
If you want to get fun with it, there are paint pens you can get that are specifically for ceramics - so you could decorate the mugs with simple designs, or the person's initials or whatever. Another idea that I JUST saw that was cute - a beer stein with candies (like butterscotch candies) topped with marshmallows (looks like beer). - Laura
Dime bags. But i'll try and think on more legal options. - Steve C Team Marina
homemade baked goods. with a bottle of beer. and a rub on tattoo. - Sir Shuping is just sir
or you can give them a tattoo! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Ha! I like the (temp) tattoo idea. I'm not qualified for the more permanent kind. - Jason P
These are great ideas, folks, thanks. Keep 'em coming. - Jason P
just do it with a permanent marker. it will eventually come off....mostly. - Sir Shuping is just sir
My mom gave all my high school friends coloring books, crayons, and those clips you hold bags of chips closed with for graduation. She became surprisingly popular. - laura x from iPhone
Depending on the crowd, novelty condoms? - laura x from iPhone
if they drink i used to buy a bottle of some really fancy beer/wee champagne thinger and go to the dollar store to get the most redonkulous cup you can find to go with it. - jambina
Wife got godiva chocolate ornament stars for $7 - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
DIY jam jar snow globes are easy and cheap: http://www.thesweetestoccasion.com/2012... - Soup in a TARDIS
Tacos. - Kristin
How about something like this? http://www.kirklands.com/product... It's a mini cast iron skillet that is meant to be used to bake a single cookie, along with the cookie mix. - April Russo

NTS in case landlord tries to deduct linoleum/vinyl replacement: Relative lifespan: The cost of vinyl and linoleum is offset to some extent by the difference in their life cycles. While vinyl can cost as much as 50% less than linoleum, it will only last on average 10-20 years. Meanwhile a linoleum floor can last upwards of 20-40 years, which means...
Normal wear and tear includes simple wearing down of carpet or drapes because of normal use or aging, and includes moderate dirt or spotting. In contrast, large rips or indelible stains justify a deduction from the tenant’s security deposit for repairing the carpet or drapes or replacing them if that is reasonably necessary. On common method of calculating the deduction for replacement... more... - Laura Norvig

Feeling so run down lately. Emotionally worn out, I think.
Commuting sucks. So does perimenopause. TMI. *rage* - Laura Norvig
I so feel you on this one, Laura. For me, I thought it was a lack of sleep, so I slept. Now I'm well rested and still with the ughblahs. Maybe Susan Miller has some insight/hope to give us? ;) Here's to better days ahead! - AHnix (Anna Haro)

You know you’re a grown-up when your Christmas wish is a new vacuum cleaner.
That sucks. - bentley
Dyson or Shark? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Roomba! - Steven Perez
I am so in the market. I want a Roomba AND a Dyson. Is a Dyson really that great, though? Would love other opinions. I have a lot of carpet in my new house. - Laura Norvig
I have a Miele that I love. LOVE! Her name is Mona. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
^We absolutely love our Miele too. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
So Laura we have a Dyson it works just fine but is no better then any of our previous vacuums. Consumer Reports rates bagged vacuums in this order: Kenmore Elite, Miele Twist, Miele Cat/Dog, Kenmore 31140, Kenmore Progressive, Hoover WindTunnel (with the last three being best buys and the first three being great but expensive). For bagless it is: Hoover Windtunnel T Series, Eureka Airspeed, Eureka airspeed Gold, Dyson Animal, Shark Rotator (with the first two marked as best buys). - Steve C Team Marina
For Roombas I'm eyeing one but they now have approximately half a billion models out. The best reviewed one is Roomba 880 for Pets it is a change in brushes from all the other models so it doesn't get jammed up but is too expensive right now. Ten more model releases and its price will drop. And as the cleaner in the house I know too much and apologize for hijacking Jandy's post. :) - Steve C Team Marina
My god a Roomba would change my life lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I owned a Roomba several years ago and found it wasn't as much a timesaver as I thought because the brush gets filled with hair VERY quickly, requiring you to take it out and cut or pull the hair off of it. Probably not a problem for people with crewcuts but it got old quickly for me. - Spidra Webster
Steve, does that Consumer Reports have ratings for handheld ones? I really need something like a Dustbuster. - Spidra Webster
Oh hey it does in another article. Hand held are in this order: Shark Pet Perfect, Eureka Easy Clean, Bissell Pet Hair Eraser, Dirt Devil classic. Stick vacuums: Dyson Animal, Dyson motorhead, Shark Rocket, Hoover Platinum, Shark Navigator, Dirt Devil Accucharge, Bissell Featherweight. - Steve C Team Marina
If you want a cheaper Roomba, they always have refurbs showing up on Woot. - Eric - ill subliminal
Thanks, Steve! - Spidra Webster
You have no idea how excited I got over our new vacuum. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also I had a Hoover Wind tunnel and it sucked. It died after a month. Never again. I have to say I have really loved my dirt devil. I wanna try a Miele next. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
My dad has sent me the Consumer Reports info as well, but I haven't taken time to look it over. Thanks for the personal reactions to your vacuums, guys. :) - Jandy
We still have a Riccar that works well. The repairman liked these and uses something similar himself. He said there's Panasonic branded ones that are basically the same inside. Looking at the bag, there are several brands that use the same upright. http://www.amazon.com/Panason.... Actually wrong bag but you get the point. We... more... - Rodfather from Android
I'm quite happy with our Eureka Airspeed--not too heavy and does a fine job with cat hair (and has good suction on tools). - Walt Crawford
I have a Dyson, and it's pretty great. We looked at the Kenmore bagless at the same time; even though they were a lot cheaper to buy, there was a lot of maintenance cost down-the-line that you don't have with the Dyson (all of the filters in the Dyson are permanent; the ones in the Kenmore are supposed to be replaced regularly, etc.). The Dyson is a lot of money (though there are some pretty great sales on them this time of year), but I honestly believe it was worth it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
There was a Dyson on sale when I went to Costco. I didn't want to impulse buy, but now I kinda wish I had gotten it. I still love the idea of a Roomba, though. I feel like it could almost be like a family pet ... - Laura Norvig

Information Gladly Given Tee | Market Street Railway
"Tens of thousands of San Francisco commuters have probably taken a few moments to ponder this simple statement, which has been posted near the operator’s station of every Muni bus and streetcar since the early 1960s. The message is simultaneously friendly and forbidding, inviting yet indifferent, personable yet coldly professional." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
in Rome you can't speak to the driver, but nobody cares about that rule :) - van der Baarft
The tee shirt just made me laugh. But I do remember that warning on the SF busses. - Anne Bouey
I need that on a huge sign in my cube at work. And in every meeting room ... - Laura Norvig
It reminds me of a Reader's Digest anecdote I read years ago. A tourist in Italy, who knew some Italian, stopped to read a very wordy sign on a bus near the door, something about not blocking the exits. The conductor yelled at her for blocking the exit. - bentley
Laura, I know a number of people who would love to wear this tee shirt all the time! - Anne Bouey
Just put it up in my cube. - Laura Norvig
:) - Anne Bouey
I need that shirt, badly - esorciccio a.d. from Flucso

Golden View Popup Link Keeper —my NEW Chrome app - http://goldenviewapps.com
GVA-header.png
WHAT IT'S NOT: Just a current page bookmark app. WHAT IT DOES DO is add a gold star UI to save in-page links intelligently to Pocket (http://getpocket.com, formerly Read It Later). - Micah
SMARTER SAVING: 1) Links are of course saved, but the post title / tweet content / search result text are also saved. 2) @twitter handle, display name on Friendfeed, and name on Google+ are saved as tags along with the link. - Micah
WHICH SITES DOES IT WORK ON? Twitter, Google+, Friendfeed and Google Search are all currently supported. More to come. Each can be enabled/disabled in the option settings. - Micah
Letting my friendfeeders know first. - Micah
All my Chrome users out there, if you could check it out for me that would be tastic! - Micah
*BUMP* for morning crew. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Hey Micah, can you explain the purpose of this again? Is it mostly a large-scale link saver (so I can grab external links from feeds and put them in one place)? It's not intended as a self-archiving tool (for non-linked content within feeds) is it? - Meg VMeg
Meg, I'll answer more thoroughly later today, but basically, you can save a post/tweet/Google search result -- the URL mainly, but the username and title are saved too. And you get a hovercard style Popup of your recent links. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Meg, here are some more screenshots: http://wittman.org/golden-... —more questions welcome. :) - Micah
Thanks! - Meg VMeg
Ok, I just made this screencast http://friendfeed.com/micahwi... demo tonight—let me know how well it helps explain GVPLK. Thanks! - Micah
Thx Micah! - sofarsoShawn

What's springpad's niche? - Micah
Installed and watching the video. So ... the idea is that it will save links from Twitter, G+, and search *to* Pocket? - Laura Norvig
hmm, my saves do not show the plus user (or even post title) when I go back to Pocket. Ahh, maybe because I am bookmarking it from a circle I created that only has myself in it (my own gplus "stuff to save" circle). Yep, that was it. Oooh, I am loving Pocket already ... - Laura Norvig
Love the play-by-play -- thanks for the feedback, Laura. :) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Any thoughts or requests from anyone? I'm working on making the new Pocket account signup possible right from the GVPLK options page—but if there's something more pressing would love to hear about it. THX - Micah
Is there any firefox addon for the same purprose? Thanks - Erwin Schrödinger
Sorry, Erwin, this extension happens to be Chrome only. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Laura Norvig
I'm looking for some good beginner guides to tagging resources with a CMS. Not so much the how-to but just some best practices, introduction to vocabularies/thesaurus/taxonomy concepts.
also, how large does a corpus have to be for tagging to be of any use? - Laura Norvig

Until Now! - Tony Stanislawski
Heres an idea, start Wuber for women. Only women drivers and passengers.... - Tony Stanislawski
Lol Tony - Sarah Slocum
Uber needs a deux ex machina moment to fix this. - Alex de Soto
I hate to say this, but Public Transportation should be the answer not more cars! - Tony Stanislawski
My video stream is hung. - Robert Scoble
When I want to SFO for the first time Google Maps and Public Transportation is all I used. Only took a Taxi back to the Airport! I wish MKE had that good of Public transport - Tony Stanislawski
Off Topic - Tony Stanislawski
#pii2014 conference week before missed the Uber controversy. - clive boulton
Anyone get a Lollipop update on their Nexus 7 tabliet - Tony Stanislawski
How about Google Contributor - ad-free websites for a fee? - Alex de Soto
its not just really bad PR. I think its might be a corporate culture thing with Uber. They need to work just as had creating good values - Tina Chase Gillmor
See here in America, I think Google should replace the US government and make Larry King! - Tony Stanislawski
We might be better governed and get more done - Tony Stanislawski
Hi kids. Late but here... - Francine Hardaway
tim berners lee mentioned cloud a lot - Kevin Marks
Its not about invention its about implemetation - Tony Stanislawski
Look at Apple, not inventing, but implementing just right... - Tony Stanislawski
*waves to Francine* - I just got here too. - Laura Norvig
Lollipop ushered in material design. Polymer may usher in web components on phones. - clive boulton
I was just thinking Amazon - Francine Hardaway
THe cloud - Francine Hardaway
One really Samsung builds them all now - Tony Stanislawski
LOL I kid - Tony Stanislawski
mobile is also popular apps - Laura Norvig
So the morale of the story is that in 10 years we will all be back on a Windows Phone - Tony Stanislawski
Amazon's web site is a mess of stale inventory, like an unkempt Frys -- search for home wi-fi. - clive boulton
here's tim berners lee on clouds: "Let's think about the Net now as an invention which made life simpler and more powerful. It made it simpler because of having to navigate phone lines from one computer to the next,you could write programs as though the net were just one big cloud, where messages went in at your computer and came out at the destination one. The realization was, "It... more... - Kevin Marks
What are those headphones Scoble is wearing? - Francine Hardaway

Kevin don't make everyone too honest:-) - Francine Hardaway
Who's serving who? Is Facebook serving us, or are we serving Facebook? - Zachary Grant
at a difffernt level - Tina Chase Gillmor
Jack Dorsey moves into registers https://squareup.com/register - clive boulton
It just feels like Uber can go away and it will not matter much - Tony Stanislawski
Zachary both. - Robert Scoble
Which should worry Uber - Tony Stanislawski
Google Uber to see what news stories show up. - Alex de Soto
I know anybody I know would not care... - Tony Stanislawski
Robert: this is true. thanks for the response. - Zachary Grant
the thing about Uber is there are feasible alternatives. Not so much for Facebook right now - Tina Chase Gillmor
Right Kevn. Oppo stuff and no contrition. - Francine Hardaway
Tina is not a G+ fan gurl ;) - clive boulton
Clive - true enough - Tina Chase Gillmor
At some point that begins to hurt you - Francine Hardaway
And they often die too - Tony Stanislawski
To be honest, I thought the first challenge for Uber would be a 'driver alliance' lobbying together for better share of the revenue... This came as quite a suprise - Monty Hamilton
Or get replaced - Francine Hardaway
Boober doesn't fly - Tina Chase Gillmor
Also reality can happen now...what happens when someone does die or gets raped, etc. - Tony Stanislawski
Compare these Uber issues with the historic image of taxis. - Arnie Klaus
I think the extent of the damage done is underestimated. There was an implicit agreement to allow Uber to disrupt city transportation, which had comfortable cartel like arrangements. But they've crossed a line, and there's no coming back, they've moved from disruptive to arrogant. - Simon Benvenutto
hey gang - Rocky Barbanica
Does Uber pay "taxi" fees at airports? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hi Rocky! - Tony Stanislawski
The problem IS the regulatory agencies, who hate conflict - Francine Hardaway
Hi Rocky - Francine Hardaway

If we don't feel safe, we won't use it. - Francine Hardaway
9.3 billion. - Nir Ben Yona
Keith, don't underestimate city governments - Francine Hardaway
Exactly Francine, strong women then drive mens behavior - Tony Stanislawski
I think about what Mr. Wonderful always says on Shark Tank - is it proprietary? The more important thing here is people and culture and people wanting to vote with their dollars for cultures they believe in. At least I want to believe that. - Laura Norvig
Taxis had scale - Francine Hardaway
Re Governments: what happened to Aereo TV for example... - Alex de Soto
Steve's right. Bring in a woman into the top ranks of Uber. Would send a good signal. Then bring in people to fix the corp culture and establish sound principles - Tina Chase Gillmor
I've seen many women say Uber did make them feel safer - Kevin Marks
In China -- Both Tencent and Alibaba are pushing subsidies at roughly $500 million to the Taxi app market. Uber just couldn't compete with them and apparently decided to pull off. - Nir Ben Yona
Exactly Alex. - Francine Hardaway
Let's not confuse 'regulatory' controls with behaviours / culture that - in this circumstance - presents as fundamentally mis-aligned to that of some of it's customers and observers - Monty Hamilton
how do you FORCE someone to be GENUINE ? - Rocky Barbanica
Car culture in US is almost as strong as the Gun culture - Tony Stanislawski
Yeah, Cosby - Francine Hardaway
I like supershuttle and its an example of disintegration of the taxi control structures. - Arnie Klaus
So many tweets don't have hashtags - Francine Hardaway
Bob Dylan plays the Academy of Music all weekend in Philly :) - Alex de Soto
@Rocky ...you can't - Monty Hamilton
the search is words not just hashtags - Kevin Marks
Tina my Uber receipt had an airport fee on it - $1 I think - Rocky Barbanica
Oh good, Kevin - Francine Hardaway
Rocky... thanks for answering that question - Tina Chase Gillmor

DM update for Twitter works on Android Twitter v5.35.0 - Monty Hamilton
Rooms has no use IMHO. Groups is good. - Francine Hardaway
suer thing, Tina ! :-) - Rocky Barbanica
Could a private group replace FF? - Francine Hardaway

Laura we whould have discussed that in G3! - Francine Hardaway
Laura - missed that. do tell - Tina Chase Gillmor
Gigabit wifi hotspots on phone boxes in NYC? - Monty Hamilton

Oh no, the future of the call centre is Enterprise Facebook !? - Simon Benvenutto
Steve - LOL - Rocky Barbanica
the barbie thing has been great - Kevin Marks
I already use FB as a work tool - Francine Hardaway
isn't there an Uber kids shuttle service? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Mercedes has a kids shuttle service in Palo Alto - Keith Teare
saw someone post about a pet shuttle recently - Jerome Hughes
my niece said, "Skipper should use Google Drive, that dumb betch." - Laura Norvig
7000 - Nir Ben Yona
said it was too expensive - Jerome Hughes
I am with Robert on this one. FB for Work will be the next big thing - Tony Stanislawski
@Tina I think it's shuddle ? - Monty Hamilton
if done right, I think Facebook will be a big thing for work - Tina Chase Gillmor
More Facebook apps, more commercial (subscriptions, ads, promotions) opportunities. - Alex de Soto
This is the Windows office argument that FB has. People use it, many, many do, and know how to use it, so to transition in the workplace would be no big deal - Tony Stanislawski
Another new thing: Snapcash. - Laura Norvig
is snapcash a snapchat thing? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I agree about FB. I think it will work for work - Francine Hardaway
Until Facebook will buy Slack. - Nir Ben Yona
But just because Slack works and is a great product ... doesn't spell long term success does it? - Laura Norvig
The key is ubiquitous access - most corporates still lock down access to the 'wave 1' tools like Microsoft Communicator... That's why things like Google Hangouts and Salesforce Chatter have thrived... they work when and where employees want them, not on the stale corporate policy IT network - Monty Hamilton
Tina, yeah, Square and Snapchat created another way to send instant cash to friends. - Laura Norvig
FB is not trusted in enterprise, it's brand has cachet in retail CRM, stops there. - clive boulton
Yes, I can't follow Leo laPorte's IRC - Francine Hardaway
I would pay for a days vacation in Roberts head...:) - Tony Stanislawski
using it a little but I don't like it. - Laura Norvig
OtherInBox - Rocky Barbanica
@Clive but all the employees of a company who might consider the product already know how to use it and probably already are using it... - Monty Hamilton
I still have OIB, Rocky! - Laura Norvig
someone help poor Dan Farber out - Tina Chase Gillmor
I got invites if anyone needs one...post your email - Tony Stanislawski
I'm quite happy with Inbox - Let me know if you want an invite... - Monty Hamilton
Inbox - Managing incoming email 9/10 - Monty Hamilton
Inbox - Authoring and creating 2/10 - Monty Hamilton
Inbox works quite good for me on-the-go. Gmail is better for office use IMHO. - Nir Ben Yona
@monty agreed, but any enterprise call I take uses Skype (GG case in point) - clive boulton
send me an invite to keith@teare.com - Keith Teare
I wish trashing was easier on inbox but it is cool. - Alex de Soto
invite pls, awasim@gmail.com - Adnan
keith, I sent you an invite - Laura Norvig
I haven't tried creating my own bundles yet. - Laura Norvig

Anyone else - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone

they're not quite ripe yet - green on the other side - Kevin Marks
Bret Taylor on Inbox: Want to like it, but not for me (yet?) https://twitter.com/btaylor... - clive boulton
thx ludwig, got it! :) - Adnan
bret does have a mail replacement app too - Kevin Marks
Let me know how you like it - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
The problem with trying to move away from email is the risk of missing the rare convergence. - Arnie Klaus
Here's what I hate: knowing that so-and-so only responds to email, and so-and-so only responds to text, and so-and-so only responds to FB Messenger - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have bundles for my clients - Francine Hardaway
I liked Inbox for 2 weeks, till new Gmail app came along. - clive boulton
Difference between Updates/Promos/Social is kind of vague. - Laura Norvig
someone should invent an app that remembers all this stuff and launches whatever app needed - Tina Chase Gillmor
Who does that Steve? - Tony Stanislawski
that's smart francine -how did you derive them? - Kevin Marks
Messaging is more natural communication than email - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
As somebody who fervently believes that corporate email has crippled many large organisations, I look forward to an alternative medium. However I don't believe Facebook is that tool. - Simon Benvenutto
Email is not for communication it is for information. different to mail that is. - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
I hate any mesg system that does not encourage a avatar for chatting - Tony Stanislawski
@laura train your gmail to make Updates/Promos/Social less vague - clive boulton
this is tantek's thing too http://tantek.com/2014... - Kevin Marks
there's a new gmail app? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Wish I could remember, Kevin. I was fooling around with Inbox one day and I appeared to be able to do that:-) - Francine Hardaway
Yup. - clive boulton
there's a new gmail app and there's inbox - Kevin Marks
Keith pushes Chatcenter all the time - Francine Hardaway
the other thing I didn't get was ... if I swipe stuff in Inbox, does that then archive it if I go back to the regular gmail? - Laura Norvig
messenger with chatheads is neat - Kevin Marks
Gmail reflects what you do in inbox Laura - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
Chat chat chatcenter - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
yes, they are both on the same backend - Kevin Marks
thx Ludwig. I think that makes me nervous to "sweep" things. - Laura Norvig
Who's on the sofa Robert? - Alex de Soto
Same for me. Feel better now with swiping - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
you already are - it's called YOUR PHONE NUMBER - Rocky Barbanica
@laura same here. That's why i stopped using inbox after new gmail "plastic" app came along. - clive boulton
D Hustle is behind me. - Robert Scoble
"plastic" gmail app might be material design (idk) - clive boulton
Speaking Of Which: Uber's Rival Lyft Quietly Limits Employee Access to User Data http://on.wsj.com/11KBfNV - Nir Ben Yona
a Facebook, a ChatCenter, an Inbox walk into a bar.... - Tina Chase Gillmor
really I only use FB to look up felons in local news - clive boulton
Mimi, the studio cat, is trying to tunnel her way into the studio - Tina Chase Gillmor
Robert thinks you're serious Steve. - Laura Norvig
Tina that was funny - Francine Hardaway
I would have sent that link in FB messenger - Tony Stanislawski
I'm too busy on Google+ and Twitter to make time for FB - clive boulton
My address book on my phone, my FB contacts, and my Gmail contacts aren't totally synced. There are too many of them Keith - Francine Hardaway
I was trying to search across Facebook for a hashtag the other day and it was a pain in the butt. Had to memorize the URL pattern for future reference. - Laura Norvig
I always take Steve seriously. Sometimes I'm right. Sometimes i'm wrong. :-) - Robert Scoble
Laura, searching inFB is ridiculous. not fun - Tina Chase Gillmor
Steve has a pretty good poker face. - Laura Norvig
FB has ease of use for me. I can find anyone there if I already know them. But their search is not fun - Francine Hardaway
hahah - Rocky Barbanica
We are still not in a time where we can solely rely on on one Mesg platform. I use FB Mesg, Twitter, Apple Mesg, rarely SMS - Tony Stanislawski
You go where your people are that you need to communicate with - Tony Stanislawski
So hard to link to a permanent URL on a Facebook post. Go to the timestamp on the desktop version, blah, blah. Is there an easier way? - Alex de Soto
I know if I have something to say to Robert or Scott Jordan I go to Facebook - Tony Stanislawski
Zucks engineers need to debounce FB graph search (srlsy crap ux) - clive boulton
@Tony lot of truth in that. - Simon Benvenutto
Laura - Poker face. yep - Tina Chase Gillmor
Better than ISIS - Tony Stanislawski
Actually Google search ux feels very dated. - clive boulton
or something new that they aren't getting elsewhere - Jerome Hughes
The ultimate viral goodwill economy will use all backbones for signalling - like Cat photos - Arnie Klaus
We are going to have a lot of disjointed mediums until the AI comes along that aggregates and represents then - for me - in a way that to me looks homogenous. This is still way way in the future. - Simon Benvenutto
Awesome, Kevin! - Laura Norvig
Who will be @leweb this December? - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
See ya folks - have a great weekend !!! - Rocky Barbanica
I let the cat in. Now she wants out. She's driving me crazy - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yes there is, Keith. Mobile dollars went up 33% this year and going up another 70% next year according to eMarketer. Now, can they measure its effectiveness? Not yet. - Francine Hardaway
it's still the attention of the same people, divided in a different way - Jerome Hughes
Anyone have a Kevo? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Happy Thanksgiving in advance! Must go feed a starving cat. - Alex de Soto
Right Jerry - Francine Hardaway

Uranus might be full of surprises - The Washington Post
"Scientists used to think that things were pretty chill over in the south hemisphere of Uranus. In fact, they thought it was one of the calmest regions of any of the gas giants. But in analyzing images taken nearly three decades ago by NASA's Voyager-2 spacecraft, researchers think they've found a kerfuffle of activity — which might indicate that there's something unusual about the planet's interior." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet

Bitcoin stock will do much better than Twitter stock - Christian Burns
RedBull and LinkedIn and GoPro all show me Facebook is growing. Plus they all get 10 times more trafficfrom Facebook than ALL OTHERS COMBINED. Look at the latest stats. They show that Twitter is flat and Facebook is still growing, despite Facebook having far more people on it. - Robert Scoble
Dogecoin stock will even do better than Twitter - Christian Burns

Agree Kevin, - Christian Burns

High-fat diet postpones brain aging in mice | KurzweilAI
"A new Danish-led research suggests that signs of brain aging can be postponed in mice if they are placed on a high-fat diet. The finding may one day allow for developing treatments for children suffering from premature aging and patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The new research project, headed by the Center for Healthy Aging, University of Copenhagen, and the National Institute of Health, studied mice having a defect in their DNA repair system, resulting in a Cockayne syndrome. Putting the mice on a high-fat diet postponed aging processes such as impaired hearing and weight loss. In humans, this defect causes patients to prematurely age as children and die at an age of 10–2 years." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

FF Team, how come you can't find your Twitter friends on the service any longer? Is this due to Twitter changes? Are there plans to restore it? Thanks.
Screen shot 2010-10-14 at 12.37.45 PM.png
yes, this. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you put &source=twitterandroid at the end of the REST request, I bet they can punch through any of twitter's API changes. - Andy Bakun
did not the twitter API change some time ago ? - Peter Dawson
Yes and yes. - Benjamin Golub
thanks Louis this is a huge loss to the service you provide guys. Find your friends › Find Twitter friends Finding your Twitter friends We could not find your Twitter friends. - Thomas Power

Fantastic Ben, Louis thank you so much. - Thomas Power
Bipolar owl: I'm sorry you feel that way. I actually did commit a change that fixes this and a few weeks ago another change that fixed adding Twitter accounts. Unfortunately both fixes are for public Twitter accounts only. It looks like you have a private account. Stay tuned! - Benjamin Golub
Thanks for the fixes and the great attitude Ben. I imagine there isn't a huge incentive to continue to patch things around here, but it's clearly a great product and people are still passionate about it. Rock on, dude. - John

dear writer for student newspaper: please inform me of your intention to quote me directly when asking for event information via email. I am unamused.
As a journalist, I would never consider an email to be a valid contact between me and a source, and that is what I was taught at my JC paper. - Petty LaBelle
Monique, I really want to respond to her about it. Not just to be angry, but to let her know it's poor form. If you have any suggestions for what to say, I would appreciate it.

yeah, that's basically a lie. You didn't *say* it, you *wrote* it. - Laura Norvig
And she doesn't know if Tamara actually wrote it or not. What if I was sitting at Tamara's desk answering her emails? Then it's what I "said" and not her. That's why it's not good to use it as a means of getting info from a source. - Petty LaBelle
I just bumped into one of the editors at the pub and told her the story. She is nonplussed. I'm going to send an email tomorrow based on her suggestion. This young lady needs to know she doesn't want to be doing things like this. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I've been the reporter and the source before, as well as the publicist writing the release. What she did is pretty amateurish but I'm guessing she wasn't taught any different. I'd suggest if someone requests event info again, you forward the press release and tell them to call you if they want a direct quote for attribution. ETA: or you send them straight to the media contact, if it's not you. - Corinne L

Brave piece. If you ever get a chance to hang out with Erica, do it. She's a wonderful person. - Stephen Mack
That was a good read indeed. But sometimes, you gotta do something yourself if you want people to respect you and take you serious. I have been a minority in a different country and culture and can relate to what she says, but I also did manage to be more serious than my colleagues. It's a big challenge, requires a lot of stubbornness, but still doable. - الک‌ دخت
