What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now) - http://flickr.com/photos...
What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay
@Cee Bee I think you meant 0.62 - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
1.27 (902/705) - Leandro Ardissone ⍨
yes, thanks for the correction. lindsay, you're making me feel bad. lol - Cee Bee
0.8576, I only like mostly when I'm going to comment - Molly Song ;)
1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah
CSV_A: 1.05,0.75,1.44,0.81,3.74,0.79,0.77,0.67,0.77,0.76,1.39,1.8,1.61,1.12,0.141,5.08,2.41,0.66,.39,0.62,.62,1.27,0.8576,1.551,0.69 - Micah
1.83 - Grant Bierman
I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah
.37 1002/2708 - Michael Fidler
this is what scobes walls would like if he didnt have FF - sean percival
I haven't seen Marc Canter's fabled fence (just heard about it), but I imagine this but on wood pickets :) - Micah
This week: 2.48 (1162:467) but this is not the norm, my likes usually match or are higher than comments, overall: 0.95 (14228:14846). - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Michael, Kol! I'll recalculate average/median when we build up some more data points here. - Micah
1.03 748/723 - Keith - @tsudo
.68 6986/10194 Someone wrote a great article on the comment-like ratio a few months ago. Search on FriendFeed is crashing on me... I'll try to get the link. - Mitchell Tsai
Thanks Mitchell (btw, search crashing on me too - lots) - Micah

*bump* - Micah
Thanks, Mark! - Micah

Thanks, Rachel! - Micah

2.63 - Bryce Roney
Thanks for joining in, Bryce. - Micah
.15 all time, .13 this week. - Alix May
Thank you, Alix and David! (and Alix, you're tied with Siavash for the Highest Like ratio. Wow). - Micah
2.94 - j1m
Thank you, j1m. Ok, I'm gonna roll this up into a csv and call it a night. - Micah
CSV_B: 0.95,0.7,3.46,3.98,1.02,0.15,0.34,0.52,1.31,0.56,0.16,1.39,4.62,2.63,0.15,0.52,2.94 - Micah
this week = 0.45%, alltime = 6.43% - chaz2b
CSV_B Mean: 1.49 (previous mean for CVS_A: 1.27) - Micah
Of course the numbers can easily lie, but I'm gonna say it anyway: "We're getting more conversational, people!" - Micah
0.49 (493/988) - Bluesun 2600
816 / 2502 = 0.326139089 overall | 50 / 233 = 0.214592275 this week I like much more than I comment. (maths via google) - Chris Loft
3026/5013 = 0.6036 - Roger Chen
chaz2b, Bluesun 2600, Roger, Nicholas — thank you! - Micah
5.25 but I don't know what this *means, yet. maybe I'm just stingy with my "likes" compared to others? - Marg Uerite
Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler
2.94 1040/354 I have likes set to post to twitter automatically, so I'm careful with them. :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
0.85 - Steven Perez
0.73 up from 0.66 on Jan 08 - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ

Ahsan, huh, I'd never considered that. - Micah
17942/30571=.59 - Scoble, Alex Scoble

Much obliged, Amani. - Micah
3062/5777 you do the maths. - Will Higgins™
.53 (3062/5777) for Will Higgins #math-on-demand-services - Micah
Thank you, amin/gnu - Micah
1.45 (4374/3026) - Micah
0.92 now. I think the movie reviews have been getting me closer to a 1 to 1 ratio. - Steven Perez
Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun
0.46 (1698/3638) - Glenn Slaven
Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah
1.31 (4,471/3,401) - Karoli
Thanks, Karoli. And the both of us have a _very_ similar ratio and absolute numbers. wow. - Micah
Thanks, Ryo! - Micah
Andy, scroll upward and you'll see a couple calculations from before (January: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81) - Micah
In March the Mean was: 1.49 - Micah
1.021276595744680851063829787234042553191489361702127659... via Wolfram Alpha - tom murphy
Thanks, tom. And though a bit verbose, your friend Wolfram is resourceful :D - Micah
0.55 (254/444) - Willem (@wim66) ☠
Thank you, Willem. - Micah
In April you were 0.97, so you're liking more / commenting less. - Micah
1.88 (779/414) - Ton Zijp
Thanks, Ton. - Micah
0.43 (3597/8305). - Parth Awasthi
0.74 (1970/2667) - Kristin of Two Everything
And thank you Parth, Scott. - Micah
Parth, compared to your April numbers, you've been consistent. - Micah
Thanks, Rick! - Micah
.54 (4148/7674) Updated! - Michael Fidler
Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah
Thanks, Michael. Yes, you have a rising tide of comment percentage (oh, wow, you were one of the originals from January - cool!) - Micah
1.82 from 798 comments / 438 likes - David Damore
Thanks, nivé and David! - Micah
2027/1594 = 1.27 - Brome
0.58 - Marc Dong
2.9 (3,242/1,116) mhhh.. time to straighten my use of FF a bit.. thanks for this entry - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Brome, Marc and Thierry - thank you! - Micah
Thierry - yeah, 2.9 is fairly high - got to pick the pace on like side :) [but hey, whatever works for you is fine] - Micah
1.91 - MiniMage
Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler
1.76 (7539/4290) My commenting habits haven't chanced much, but it felt like I clicked Like a lot less, and this ratio confirms that for me. - Micah
It's that time again. - Micah
Thanks, Laura! (you're a 50-caliber gal!) - Micah
0.64 - Imabug
Thank you, Imabug. - Micah

About 1:2 comment to likes at this time - RAPatton from iPod
.63 - metalerik
Thanks Imabug, directeur, Steven, RAPatton, Jim, Brent and metalerik! - Micah
0.78 - Pete D
.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - NOT THE CRICKET
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee
.31. I have almost 4 times as many likes as comments. - edythe
Thank you edythe and Eric! - Micah
195/245 makes 0.8 rounded not including this one which would be 196/245 making 0.8 unrounded, - tom murphy
Thanks, Tom. - Micah
1.98 (588/297) - Bryan Zirkel
1.67 (19,550/11,684) - Mitchell Tsai
Bryan, Mitchell and Jeff P. - thanks, guys! - Micah
1.18 - it's always been close to 1, since day one, for some reason. - Laura Norvig
Wow, Penguin is a prolific liker! - Laura Norvig
2.67 (875/328) - Nathalie
Thank you, Nathalie! - Micah
Thanks, Spidra and Mark! - Micah
0.49 - Jammy Lee
Jammy and Mathew, thank you very much. - Micah
I don't know I just like that picture - Brian Hendrickson
.40 - Ben Hanten
Mine was exactly 2:1 about a week ago. Did a screenshot when I had 2,000 comments and 1,000 likes. - Joe from iPod
SuezanneC, Brian, B E N and Joe - thank you all very much! - Micah
Joe, it's like see the odometer click through a nice round number - it's just inexplicably engaging. :) - Micah
1.40, nearly the square root of two. - Vezquex
Thanks, Raphael and Andy! - Micah
12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah
When I first saw this: 1.91 Sept 28: 1.94 - MiniMage
536 comments in the last month has me at .8736...still creeping toward 1.00 - Bren
Thanks, MiniMage (2x participant!), Bren (3x!) and Shannon (your inaugural visit!) - Micah
Thank you, SustainedEuphoria. - Micah
Thanks, Mark. - Micah
1.45 - Brett Kelly
Thanks, Brett :) - Micah
5.67 all time. Second highest ratio on here. Woot! I love to talk. - Kevin L
Thank you both, Kevin and mridul (the two of you balance it each well :) - Micah
1.80 (10,189 / 5,666) [compared to Likes, my Comments still continue to rise] - Micah
1.02 (10323/10161) - Bren
.5666 currently (30,084/53,093) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah
1.19 - Joe Bonner
Micah this is like 11 months ago, I see you have almost doubled your rate. lets make a graph for everybody now, :) - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL
Quick, someone write a greasemonkey script to inline some google charts! (tap-tap-tap...wut? don't look at me ;) - Micah
Thanks, Joe. And you thank you, Mahmood :) - Micah
Thanks, Glen! Your comments in the ratio have gone up too. - Micah

My work now we are fighting b/t age lines (50 and older) wont let go of native clients, under 50 are fine with browser based.. its WW1 style people hanging on for dear life; - Matthew Voshell
Sunsetting the native client is fine -- it works on the other platforms where people are actually doing the work - John Taschek

Google making life unnecessarily hard for its ecosystem partners http://blog.kerika.com/google-... - clive boulton
But there's no question that Google is headed towards Hangouts and eliminating Talk/XMPP - enterprises using XMPP/Talk via Google Apps are the big holdout - Ankush Narula

http can federate if software enables it - Keith Teare
chat center is about to support domains - Keith Teare

but still centrally controlled? XMPP is more like email - no central ownership, just a gentlemen's agreement to exchange messages. - Simon Tennant
In app "sponsored posts" are so annoying.. verzion fios is doing the same thing but inserting paid movies in between channels; why dont they offer a paid version?? I'd pay for a twitter app not to have sponsored posts; and Apple tried iAd and look how non-successful that was... mobile advertising is hard.. just charge for your app and get it over with! - Matthew Voshell

Her. (personal search, personal assistant) - Laura Norvig
It's Scarlett Johansson search...which ain't bad! - Tom Guarriello
G+ is a damn mess...Google needs to EOL the noise and lift the cream (Hangouts, Hangouts on Air, AutoAwesome and Ident) out of that mess ASAP...create a Facebook Group/Page exporter and free up those dev resources into Cards/Now and Docs... - J.C. Bouvier

Use Slack a lot here - Ian Waring
I'm getting triple copies of most notifications, from all the different curation tools I use - Francine Hardaway

I've taken YO off my phone for the fourth time. Scoble keeps urging me to put it back on, but then it doesn't prove useful. Other apps do what it does - Francine Hardaway
my dog has a squeaky toy - Kevin Marks
muting - Kevin Marks

How many users are there of HomeScreen? - Francine Hardaway
Excel nice too - Ian Waring
Thanks Tina. - Francine Hardaway
the calendar date and clock icons are dynamic, but probably a closed API - Simon Benvenutto
HomeScreen priceless analytics for incubator investments - clive boulton
If there are enough users who report their screens repeaatedly Clive - Francine Hardaway
Apple clock does that as well - Roger Shepherd
Tina, this is why we should use Slack for G3 - Francine Hardaway
Good point Francine - clive boulton
We have Jenkins piped into Slack - Ian Waring
I don't yet get Slack - clive boulton

Name this show: Xing blood brain barrier c/o Steve - clive boulton
But shouldn't you start by scratching your own itch? - Francine Hardaway
a16z definitely worthwhile - Tom Guarriello
I like listening to a16z. - Francine Hardaway
Yammer was internal Twitter - Francine Hardaway
That's the way I brought Yammer into clients, Francine - Tom Guarriello
In many ways the model Stewart describes is a ChatOps type model, its not so much the tool as using the channels as the glue that pulls the company together. - Simon Benvenutto
Track!!! - Tom Guarriello
track <3 - Tina Chase Gillmor
Slack integration handy for enterprise - clive boulton
you type /bug @kteare blah blah - Kevin Marks
I can't believe Steve is able to do the show today. He's got a crappy cold - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina, you're doing a great job producing the show - Tom Guarriello
Nuzzel. I really like Nuzzel. Easier to read than Digg Deeper. But I read them both - Francine Hardaway
Nuzzel said I followed too many people - Kevin Marks
I do Nuzzle but not Digg Deeper yet. - Tom Guarriello
Since when do apps pass judgment on you Kevin - Francine Hardaway
all the time -have you tried ThinkUp - Kevin Marks
ThinkUp exists to pass judgment.. It tells me how many times a week I've said "shit" - Francine Hardaway
That's funny, Kevin/Francine. ThinkUp is trying to make sense of your words and punctuation marks. And your Twitter profile changes, of course. - Tom Guarriello
what is the name? - Kevin Marks
chatrate? - Kevin Marks
chatgrape? - Keith Teare
web actions is what we call it now http://indiewebcamp.com/webacti... - Kevin Marks
chatgrep? - Kevin Marks
Hi all - late today but loving the topic right now. - Laura Norvig
Does Slack have a free version for any enterprise? (or maybe for Nonprofits ...?) - Laura Norvig
yes, Slack is freemium - Kevin Marks
can't find "chat *" - clive boulton
Slack is free unless you need paid features - Keith Teare
you can set it up free, and you pay for extra users, extra integrations - Kevin Marks
Thx, Keith! - Laura Norvig
Laura - take a look at it. It does quite a lot without getting into paid versions - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Tina, would love to. Just getting our folks used to Chatter, though, don't know if they would get why we would add Slack. But I'll ask our super IT gal if we can test it out. - Laura Norvig
Simon - mucho thanko - clive boulton
I love continuity! I haven't been here live for months (hi everybody) and I can schloop right into the notifications discussion. Didn't miss a beat. - Amyloo
RIP Glitch. Stewart's previous venture. - christina sponselli
Amylou or stuck in a groove - Francine Hardaway
Amyloo - We've been here constantly :-) - Keith Teare
Just got distracted by Daring Fireball's piece on the prices of various Apple watch bands. Holy shit - Francine Hardaway
Francine - Beautiful or expensive? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Not being a watch person, I can't see paying so much. $20k Tina - Francine Hardaway
That was was an interesting analysis, right Francine? - Tom Guarriello
you can get response interactions on your watch - Kevin Marks
Every press piece I read raises the price:-) - Francine Hardaway
And Dave Winer thinks Heartbeat will be the killer app. - Francine Hardaway
bajeeeez - Tina Chase Gillmor
launcher apps are pretty big on android - Kevin Marks
But really lack of heartbeat is the killer app - Francine Hardaway
Cyanogen Mod - Francine Hardaway
this is a very good article on notifications https://medium.com/@ai... - Kevin Marks
@keith -- Yes, here all the time -- and you guys were way ahead of the game. - Amyloo
I get pretty good notifications off my Pebble watch. - Francine Hardaway
Sounds like an Apple Watch scenario - Tom Guarriello
The problem is that an individual app sends notifications but so do 50 others. - Francine Hardaway
We need bots to manage all these notifications - Tom Guarriello
Twitter may turn out losers in Slacks apps climb. Talking in communities better UX than notifications from all. - clive boulton
just signed our team up for Slack! - Laura Norvig
Notifications are basically dumb at source: they are the apps interpretation of what I want !? Notifications need good filters, you guys have discussed before, and the filters must be contextual e.g.: I'm hungry :) - Simon Benvenutto
That video was great, Keith - Tom Guarriello
Foursquare is good at that - Kevin Marks
Steve - I hope your cold gets better.... - Roger Shepherd
Our little effort at diversity. - Francine Hardaway
Feel better all! - Alex de Soto

Let's use Slack for this. - Francine Hardaway
Tom, a misogynist - Francine Hardaway
Great show guys, you were missed last week, thanks for the effort in spite of the comms issues !!!!! - Simon Benvenutto
I'm afraid I could be charged with that on the basis of this data, Francine, but it is totally untrue!!! - Tom Guarriello
Name this show. Slack talk. - clive boulton
Starmama
I've been in love with Prince since like 1979. Back then he was rocking that fluffy blowout natural. Just adorable. These days, in middle age, I'm loving his afro, and I think he looks better than ever. Love seeing the pix from last nite. He's still so pretty!
You and my friend Robin could talk forever about Prince! =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
3 words Little Red Corvette - WarLord
God, my sister listened to his albums over and over and over and over and over and over again. - Todd Hoff
As did I. Memorized every note of every song. Posters and drawings of him were all over my room. I had a Levi's jacket I stuck about a dozen Prince pins on, every time the record store got a new pin in stock I snatched it up. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
What's not to love? My go to when I need cheering up. - Laura Norvig
"Will you accept my tears to pay the fare?" - MoTO Boychick Devil
Laura Norvig
Having the weirdest craving for cocaine. so weird, I hate cocaine. Must be the champagne and potato chips ... just seems like a natural follow on.
I laughed out loud. Not sure if I was supposed to. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Heh - I sort of meant to post that to a private room. No biggie. They were jalapeno potato chips ... tickled my sinuses, that could be part of it. Nostalgia for the 80's ... - Laura Norvig
I get the same vibe when I eat salt & vinegar chips. Potato chips tryna make us regress, yo. - Hookuh Tinypants
Ah, 80s, that skeevy bastard. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Did you laugh so loud that you snorted? - Joe
Salt and vinegar potato chips make me want to oogle an attractive young dental hygienist, cos that's who first introduced me to them. - Big Joe Silence from iPod
laura x
"Is Mommy a grown up?"
"Better ask Mommy directly, kiddo; no sensible person's gonna touch that 'un." - RepoRat
I said yes. Fake it till you make it. - laura x from iPhone
Kids ask the hardest questions. - lris
as far as he's concerned, absolutely. As in, "that's only for grownups." Can be applied to television, soda, chocolate, iPhones, etc. - Laura Norvig
t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
anyone here use Slack? I just joined.
Baby I don't even know what it is. - MoTO Boychick Devil
We use it at work for keeping in touch at off-site events. but rarely otherwise. - Kevin Johnson
folks down here are jumping in to converge the Southeast tech/dev/startup scenes I think. parts are a bit over my head, but soon as I joined I found a women's tech channel and was warmly welcomed by the admins there, so that was nice. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
some comments in the general channel joked about it basically being micro-twitter, which isn't necessarily a bad thing to my mind. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Oh, do tell. I thought it was an enterprise-level tool - is it useful for individuals? It's definitely all the rage at most Bay Area startups as a collaboration tool. - Laura Norvig
Laura: I'm still figuring it out. I think you're right that it's generally for larger system collaboration, but folks have also created "teams" that are basically open communities. I joined one called tech404, a tech startup professional network out of Atlanta. within that are a bunch of channels of discussion, and I joined 4: "general," "startups," "nerdy ladies," and the "nerdy ladies" private channel. I don't think you can just sign-up to the Slack network as a user and look for "teams" to join. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Victor Ganata
Act Two. Freedom Fries. - This American Life http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-a... - so basically being annoyed with vocal fry is associated with misogyny and age discrimination against young people?
"A man wrote 'Listen, I know there's pressure to hire females, in particular young females just out of college. And besides, they're likely to work for less money. But do you have to choose the most irritating voices in the English-speaking world? I mean, are you forced to? Or maybe, as I imagine, NPR runs national contests looking for them.'" - Victor Ganata
"There's now robust evidence that men do this too. And like a lot of the other coverage, The Today Show story pathologizes vocal fry. It says that it's some kind of problem instead of just the way that some people talk." - Victor Ganata
"The Today Show story and other stories treat vocal fry as if it's a new phenomenon, on the rise, a fad, an epidemic. But as a linguist at the University of Pennsylvania, Mark Lieberman, has pointed out, there is still no evidence of that, pro or con-- no evidence that it is more common now than it's always been." - Victor Ganata
"What's striking in the dozens of emails about vocal fry that we've gotten here at our radio show is how vehement people are. These are some of the angriest emails we ever get." - Victor Ganata
"They call these women's voices unbearable, excruciating, annoyingly adolescent, beyond annoying, difficult to pay attention, so severe as to cause discomfort, can't stand the pain, distractingly disgusting, could not get over how annoyed I was, I am so appalled, detracts from the credibility of the journalist, degrades the value of the reportage, it's a choice, very unprofessional." - Victor Ganata
Is it really surprising, though? They're some of the easiest, safest targets for disdain. - Jennifer Dittrich
I guess I shouldn't be surprised. But I find the story of how the phenomenon of vocal fry got processed by the media as this terrible new affliction fascinating. And I'm always amused by how linguistic prescriptivism tends to go hand-in-hand with other regressive ideas. - Victor Ganata
I don't have disdain for people who talk like that. I talk with several people who have the affect. I enjoy our conversations, I just find their voices extremely grating. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm listening to the audio because I keep forgetting what "vocal fry" is. - MoTO Boychick Devil
To my ear Ira Glass has a touch of vocal fry. - Corinne L
*shrug*... *files under America's criticism of "black sounding names"* - MoTO Boychick Devil
I mean, sure, there are people with annoying voices, but it's fascinating that people will use that as a marker of education and professionalism (or the lack thereof). - Victor Ganata
"Listeners have always complained about young women reporting on our show. They used to complain about reporters using the word like and about upspeak, which is when you put a question mark at the end of a sentence and talk like this. But we don't get many emails like that anymore. People who don't like listening to young women on the radio have moved on to vocal fry." - Victor Ganata
see my previous comment. - MoTO Boychick Devil
I found the Lindy West piece quite gripping. She rocks. - MoTO Boychick Devil
Ira Glass: "Yeah. Have you noticed that I do it too?" - Victor Ganata
Ha! I listened to the audio but wasn't paying close attention to what he was saying in that portion. His vocal fry doesn't seem to be at the ends of sentences, though, more like certain words trigger it. - Corinne L
I couldn't even hear it in that piece. Found this video and now I can hear it https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Laura Norvig

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
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 Boychick Devil
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 Boychick Devil
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. - Cristo
What are people's impressions of Ello? - Cristo
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? - Cristo
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. - Cristo
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. - Cristo
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
Twitter. Hardly ever FB, except the last couple weeks because Gail. Slack for WP stuff - I'm an aspiring theme reviewer. Omg the noise there! - Mary B: #TeamMonique
instagram - Beti
Hi Beti! - Stephen Mack
none - Me
Hi Stephen Mack! I didn't even see your greeting! - Beti

hello London! - Tina Chase Gillmor
50 miles west of London checked in! - Ian Waring from iPhone
Any truth to this rumor of security issues with Outlook for iOS and Android? http://www.tomshardware.com/news... - Alex de Soto
Thanks Tina x Have to say...and cant believe I am saying this...Windows 10 is actually pretty bloomin good - Scott Jones
Labels still seem to be the big email stumbling block - Tom Guarriello
Google has been lazy for years. No focus. Look at Google Search - Moe Glitz from iPhone

IT'S OUTLOOK!!! HOW INNOVATIVE CAN IT BE?? (Sorry!) - Tom Guarriello
Moving forward since Ballmer left - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Riveting, guys! - Tom Guarriello
The Mac Outlook client is still a dog. Does the iOS App support non-Exchange POP/IMAP? - J.C. Bouvier
iterative progress - Tina Chase Gillmor
I give Microsoft a last chance every two years! - John Taschek
hahahha - Scott Jones
email "bucket of crap" - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have to use Exchange and the iOS app works very well and very fast. Notifications are good because the app uses something called "Focused" which somehow figures out what's important, mostly based on your contacts. - Alex de Soto
The Outlook IOS and Android Preview work with pop, exchange, gmail - John Taschek
wait, did Robert just compare himself to Bill Gates? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yes, Tina, we did hear that... - Tom Guarriello
Handle? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Consumers ditching email only Enterprise still using it - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Tx John. - J.C. Bouvier

I don't think the UI is better than Google's own -- it's a few functions that make the difference (which are part of user experience). But it's just fascinating -- it's like email is getting new life - John Taschek
He's heating up, People - Tina Chase Gillmor
*Ding* - J.C. Bouvier
iOS Outlook has "Focused," emails from your contacts, and "Other" which is everything else. "Quick Filter" shows: Unread, Flagged and Files (with attachments). - Alex de Soto
did my tech crunch link go out. Usually more folks in this chat - Tina Chase Gillmor
Aren't Surfaces making a splash? Their NFL partnership seems to be going very well - Tom Guarriello
Previous versions of their own products has traditionally been their biggest competitors - Ian Waring from iPhone
+100 Keith, Nadela said as much in his keynote comments; platform agnostic, experience centric...if he's serious, they've certainly got the runway... - J.C. Bouvier
Tom: only relative to past failure. Still too small a business, and if software is the futur, hardware is a distraction - Keith Teare
Think Microsoft may have to acquire to find new business revenues - Moe Glitz from iPhone
No doubt, Keith. Just looks like a bit of hardware success - Tom Guarriello
Nothing like open sores coders - Frank Paynter
How about Amazon throwing Wall St a profit bone and getting a huge bump today? - Tom Guarriello
Hey, Windows Phone will support FLAC in Windows 10...don't know that it's a game changer...but there's an influential audience looking for the feature...they're doing things that guys like us are paying attention to...does it translate to cohesive ecosystem is the qeustion. - J.C. Bouvier
J.C. there aren't enough people who care about FLAC to matter. NOT A SINGLE ENTREPRENEUR at Techstars in San Antonio was carrying a Windows Phone. It's totally dead and not coming back. - Robert Scoble
39% gross margins...crazy talk. - J.C. Bouvier
Not everyone has to do 18 billion a quarter like Apple ... 5 or 10 with a software business are nice, too. - Johannes Siemers
Nice. John is very chatty today. I like that. fiesty - Tina Chase Gillmor
FLAC is nothing special. apple lossless is equivalent; uncompressed is only twice as big - Kevin Marks
Can Apple ramp to 100m iPhones a quarter...Q4 next year? - J.C. Bouvier
Apple has an integrated hyperfocus throughout design to sales and support. Everyone else is marginalized. - Arnie Klaus
Apple need the Watch to succeed, cause right now it's all about the iPhone - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Apple has figured out how to ace the phone upgrade cycle. - Alex de Soto
The iPod is dying and the iPad sales are stalling - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Yah, getting Chinese consumers to pay luxury prices against native vendors at 8 units to 1 is a real thing... - J.C. Bouvier
The China market was huge for Apple -- and it came at a time when the flagship Android vendors didn't come up with enough design (i.e., Samsung) - John Taschek
If there is a full Apple TV in stealth mode, now is the time to push it forward - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Xaomi is doing OK - Kevin Marks
1.4 Billion Android Smartphones shipped? - John Taschek
Scoble switched back - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Kevin, I'm w/you, I'm not a real FLAC guy, just saying... - J.C. Bouvier
And China market is not proving as price sensitive as was commonly assumed. As China's economic growth continues, Apple's 40 new stores there will be hugely productive. - Tom Guarriello
An iPhone 6+ is about 1/2 the size of an iPad Mini. - Ian Waring from iPhone
utterly disagree with Scoble. Apple is US ONLY. - Scott Jones
Speaking as a data point... I'm swapping back, my android for an iPhone ASAP. - Frank Paynter
Nice John, Sierra Nevada? ;) - J.C. Bouvier
Scott absolutely not true. Same numbers exist EVERYWHERE I meet with entrepreneurs. - Robert Scoble
I find tasks are taking less and less screen real estate - Ian Waring from iPhone

Samsung still have a chance as their new Galaxy looks a carbon copy of the iPhone - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Agreed... Samsung kinda blew it. The phone is well designed, but the data flows are out of control. Google eats up all of my data every month. - Frank Paynter

Friendfeed and the live broadcast are so out of sync for me. There's a delay with the video on Ustream or with Friendfeed. A seven second broadcast delay? Maybe that's a good thing. - Alex de Soto

the difference between markup and interop :) - Simon Benvenutto
old vs new - Robin Jewsbury

and - http://fortune.com/2013... - What has been your biggest failure? Funnily enough, I’m going to say XML. Yes, it is a standard, but the vision of a simple easy text format for sharing data between applications across the web which is what I had in mind was corrupted by a disastrously over-complex schema language and... more... - Michael Roberts
great show, thanks everyone! was the most extreme sort of (live) lurker today, burning up my data plan watching on a train on my "tiny" 5S so couldn't be here in #FF as didn't have the foresight to bring another of my iDevices - Jerome Hughes from iPhone
Great reference, Michael! XML can be used in non-web applications. It's not dead, just pining ... - Laura Norvig
(get it? remember Pine email ... oh, never mind) - Laura Norvig
I wrote one of my final papers for my MLIS about XML in the year 2000. I never really learned it all that well, just wrote about the conceptual promise and possible applications! - Laura Norvig
@Jerome -- yes GG requires 2 devices. Maybe Steve's new GG app can combine view and interaction (attention collections that span mobile to desktop so needed) - clive boulton
Laura: Yes Pine email - the good ol days when email was simple, and mostly spam free. Indeed XML is not dead - I helped to create a standard that uses it and its very much still in use. - Michael Roberts

t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
tonight may very well be one of the all time worst professional moments of my life. the event was a train wreck of things gone wrong. boss was pissed. I was just deer in headlights useless. locked myself in the office halfway through and bawled. it was ugly.
upsides: no one died nor got arrested. my volunteers were champions of rolling with the punches. and I didn't screw things up with the mayor. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
hang in there. - Mike Nencetti
hold the phone... bossman just texted to thank me for my hard work. ok so then I have no fucking idea what happened. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

thanks so much everyone. it truly was an ordeal and I'm glad it's over. I'm not sure how much longer I'm in for this new gig. I'm waiting for the "wtf" message about all the SNAFUs. I think the text last night was a brief moment of courtesy that isn't going to last long. Also: for the record, I'm not an event planner, nor do I want to be an event planner, and how the hell am I now an event planner? That's MY wtf message. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

eBay to lay off 2,400, could split into three parts [San Jose Mercury News] - http://www.mercurynews.com/busines...
eBay to lay off 2,400, could split into three parts [San Jose Mercury News]
From the article by Jeremy C. Owens, published at 1:33 today: "A PayPal spinoff isn't enough for eBay -- the company now plans to lay off thousands of workers and split off yet another independent company as its auction site suffers. eBay announced Wednesday afternoon that it would slash 2,400 jobs, about 7 percent of its global work force, as it struggles to bounce back from a cyberattack that forced all users to reset their passwords. The e-commerce giant will also split off its eBay Enterprise business, which manages online sales efforts for other businesses." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Kevin Fox on twitter: "The day after Obama singles out EBay as a jobs creator in the State of the Union, EBay announces 2,400 layoffs." (https://twitter.com/kfury...) - Stephen Mack
[Liking to follow conversation. Do not like.] - Laura Norvig
Yeah, this is a bad one. Personally, I've never used eBay and never really "got" it. But it's surprising to me they're attributing the drop-off in customers to the password change. - Stephen Mack
I'm a sometimes eBay user. A few times a year. I had completely forgotten about the password thing. - Brian Johns
I attribute the drop-off in users to the increase in other services. eBay stopped being a real "auction" site a while ago (yes, people do still auction things on there, but most of the listings are "buy it now" types of listings), and the whole "buy it now" type of listing is much better represented in places like Amazon now. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Recovering ebay addict -> - Greg GuitarBuster
eBay junkie, mostly for specific retro type things. Always pleased! - Janet from FFHound!
every christmas i spend way too much on ebay for whatever wade's latest retro passion is ... thunderbirds, pokemon, etc. - Laura Norvig
That's So CAJ!
This was going to be a #SaturdayFF but seemed more like a Confession. (Plus it's now Sunday.) I'm terrible at relationships. And I don't only mean the romantic kind. I've never felt like I was able to be a good friend. I feel I'm overly self-centered as I sometimes have a "sucks to be you" instead of "how can I help" response...cont.
...to people who want or may need my support. I'm terribly non-empathic and realize I just don't know how to respond to folks going through bad times. "Hugs" and "Thinking of you" just seem like words and I don't know how that could be supportive. - That's So CAJ!
I mean, I'm not a complete jerk. (At least I hope not.) I just don't know how to connect, or better yet, convey to people that I do have concern and caring for them. At least without feeling like I'm only spouting off platitudes instead of more substantial support. - That's So CAJ!
Having met you in person, I would say that you are not a complete jerk. In fact, you have approximately zero percent jerkiness going on. So there. - Jim #teamFFrank
at 41 I know I'm still learning at how to be good - or even ok - at all kinds of relationships. I have used very similar words to what yours about myself, especially the feeling of spouting off platitudes. And yet, I'm getting better at it and it's coming more easily, even if it doesn't feel natural yet. And yet, after the last year, I'm realizing that sometimes just knowing someone is there helps tremendously, even if there's nothing they can do. - ellbeecee
Thanks, Jim. People outside your head tend to have a better viewpoint. :) - That's So CAJ!
ellbeecee, I guess all we can do is try and perhaps the effort is thing that matters. I don't think we need to know for sure it helps, we just need to know for sure we're trying. :D - That's So CAJ!
This is belated, but Jim writes truth. There was no jerkiness in sight! - Prairie & I Know It from Android
I totally understand the reluctance to offer, "hugs" or other words on social media, for fear they have such little meaning when not delivered in person. I often choose no response over one that I fear is empty. And then in person, it's not easy to say words of support either (although I'm capable of giving a real hug). - Laura Norvig
Laura Norvig
#saturdayff sparked by Stephen F-ing Mack's. Growing up we had a housekeeper come in a few days a week, but my mom still did a lot of ironing. The laundry room was in the basement and I liked to sit down there with her and look at books while she ironed. I sat there and asked about every word: "what does c - a- t spell?"
Then one day at breakfast she said she was very surprised as I rattled off everything on the cereal box. - Laura Norvig
When I got to Kindergarten, I was one of the only ones who could read. I was called upon to read to the whole class, which both enthralled and terrified me. - Laura Norvig
I distinctly remember that the book I read was both about a cat and shaped like a cat. - Laura Norvig
neat! - Marie
Awesome - Stephen Mack from iPhone

#SaturdayFF The most angry my dad has been with me was a half day in middle school when I went downtown for lunch "without permission." It was winter so I got chewed out about how I could have been frozen in a ditch somewhere.
BTW, I asked if I could go to McDonalds the day before. Going downtown for lunch was the cool thing to do on half days. - Heather
I remember those days in middle school! Walking to fast-food restaurants was the business on minimum days. Not so much fun now. >_> lol. Also, if that was the reason your dad was at his angriest with you, I'd say you were a pretty great kid. :) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
We used to walk to the pizza place in elementary school which was half a block away but sooo not allowed. - Laura Norvig
Anna, my dad earned an easy kid after my 2 half-siblings. My school was across downtown, so getting lunch was kind of on the way home but took a while. He got home in the afternoon so he was expecting me to be there already. - Heather
Starmama
My friend who took Daisy has an upstairs neighbor who's living there on false pretenses under her mother's section 8. The owner has conflict with her, the other tenants don't like her. Andrea thinks she will be put out soon and is telling the owner wonderful things about me :-)
It's walking distance to Angie's house, and the elementary me Angie & Andrea all went to in kindergarten & 1st grade - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
*crosses fingers* - Kirsten
OMG, Yes, Yes, Yes ... praying for you ... does the owner know about these false pretenses? (Not suggesting the bad karma of ratting someone out but honestly, she is taking spots away from awesome families like yours.) - Laura Norvig
I'm not sure what he knows of it but I have a feeling Andrea is ready to snitch lol. I agree that it isn't fair when I've complied with everything required of me while this chick & her mom are getting over. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
fingers crossed! - Anne Bouey
That would be super cool! - SAM
Added to my prayers! - Janet from FFHound!

Nest has made a point of being about 'home automation'. Very frightened by all the dead bodies in Cleantech, I think. Thread protocol description also gets those 'consumer' and home words way upfront in all announcements to distinguish from Industrial IoT. First application for Smart Glass is clearly IIoT - so out of Nest comfort zone. NEST & Glass = Not a goToMarket match - No one is talking about that - Therese Sullivan
Unfortunately I heard the wearable camera's angle doesn't lend itself to a good perspective. - christina sponselli

FBI was watching the man in OH that was planning that attack against the US Capital... they arrested him after he purchased the guns but had not committed a crime... all he did was speak out on twitter... slippery slop that your tweets are admissible in court?

+1 Laura - Tom Guarriello
@Moe... Sorkin wrote it... and he said previously is going to focus on 3 points in job's life... i have faith in the writing.. but it has to be played by the right person.. Bale was perfect from both attitude and looks... - Matthew Voshell
Should do a movie when Jobs returned to Apple, up until he sadly died - Moe Glitz from iPhone
@Moe what i've heard is that it starts with him debuting the iphone and then having flash backs during the speech - Matthew Voshell
Regarding quality - I really like Tidal - sounds much better than Spotify - Roger Shepherd

Tricaster long pause. Maybe comcast. - clive boulton
Im on the periphery not so much in th trenches. BUT my friends are constantly talking about how much they are up against shitty attitudes - Tina Chase Gillmor
Secret Facebook Groups are great for sharing information amongst affiliated groups. Lots of functionality, of course, and everyone's familiar with the interface. - Tom Guarriello
Yea is like secrete facebook groups with a newsfeed.. plus do companies trust put thier info on there? - Matthew Voshell
Why would Work colleagues use Facebook@Work when they can just shout across the room to them - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I put FB at work in context with revelations from Snapchat conversation post-Sony hack. Getting ready for bubble pop finds them running for shelter into the enterprise. Right, @KevinMarks like Slack. Video chat has great potential in the enterprise for same reason as Google Glass, eg facilities operations. Blogged about this www.buildingcontext.me - Therese Sullivan
Very hard to trust - John Taschek
what does salesforce use? - kat turning
Chatter - Kevin Marks
+1 Therese Sullivan (enterprise cover when the bubble pops) - clive boulton

the products are great... but people have to use it.... which is hard for employees over 30 - Matthew Voshell
It heard us talking about it ... (Slack) - Laura Norvig
we use TeamworkPM and link it to Google Drive - Matthew Voshell
@Matthew - not sure I agree with the ageism but for reluctant users you basically have to put something they HAVE to get behind the tool. They'll get used to it. - Laura Norvig
@Laura.. i agree.. but ive been spending the past 3 weeks at work explaining to our older sales force (45 and older) and i have to teach them repeatedly how to even add a video call to a google cal invite let alone our PM/Sales cloud software - Matthew Voshell
Ha, that's actually pretty advanced ... where I work there's a lot of email attachments. smh. Even though we have Chatter and Sharepoint. - Laura Norvig
right, having a good document repository is hard - Kevin Marks
@laura.... hahaha yep... care to join me when i bash my head against the wall over and over again? :/ - Matthew Voshell
sharepoint is not a good one, Quip or Google docs are better - Kevin Marks
John Taschek is sinking - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yeah, Sharepoint makes it hard to convince people they should use a system like that. - Laura Norvig
I wrote a thing today about indieweb tools: http://www.kevinmarks.com/we-like... - Kevin Marks
we use google drive and ive setup a google site but no one ever looks at it... JT has it right... i'm having to reteach these guys how to work... they are stuck in the old paradigm... - Matthew Voshell
slack with gdocs integration is quite good - Kevin Marks
Our CEO solved email attachment's. He had the IT guy disconnect the exchange server and put into in a taxi, then fired the IT guy. Kick ass! - clive boulton
It takes a ton of training, adoption from the C-suite, and sometimes mandated practices. I guess. Or I could just go work with people who understand cloud repositories - Laura Norvig
@Clive that is awesome! - Tony Stanislawski
@Kevin slack is great... but seems to be better suited for Devs etc, was tough sell to my workforce - Matthew Voshell

Except when I lived in a studio, I've never had a TV in my bedroom. The sloth enabled by streaming shows & games & movies while in my bed is why. This is ridiculous. And comfy.
My bedroom TV broke a year ago. We haven't replaced it, but I keep seeing these tiny nightstand projectors on my dramas and I want to get one. I could watch my movies & shows flat on my back. - Anika
I don't like it because sleep hygiene. But then sometimes I'll watch a movie on my laptop or even iphone so me = hypocrite. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Every single time I see a Californian write about how great a Chipotle burrito is, I get a little sadder for 'em.
Maybe it's a gateway burrito. Like white zinfandel is a gateway wine for some folks. - Corinne L
El Farolito!! - Gabrielle
I'm not sure you need a gateway burrito, though. - Andrew C (✔)
Many of us do not. However, I have relatives who refer to tortillas as "burrito shells." These folks may never progress past a Chipotle burrito. - Corinne L
Come to think of it, when Steamrollers (Vancouver burrito chain) opened up, they had diagrams showing customers how to unwrap a burrito. - Andrew C (✔)
At the fake Chipotle's in Beijing, the tray liners also had diagrams for burrito consumption. - Jessie
Oh, I don't mind Chipotle in far-flung regions. They're expanding to Vancouver and honestly, even with a couple of good Mexican family restaurants there, a chain that's actually trying and has more meat options than ground beef will probably be good for the area. I just question why there are Chipotles in SF and LA. - Andrew C (✔)
A Chipotle just opened up in my town. There is a very specific type of clientele that seems to be flocking to it. The kind that think Panda Express tastes amazing. - Hookuh Tinypants
our university students voted Chipotle the best Mexican food in LA. They also voted Panda Express as best Asian. The future is doomed. - Marie
We have a Panda Express and a Chipotle right next to each other down the street from us. I will admit to partaking, even though I know what real versions are. It's just good versions of the real stuff are a drive. - Eric - Let Me Know
I was bemused when a chipotle opened in Santa Cruz, but it's no different than Taco Bell existing, I suppose. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
The Chipotle by us (also right by a Panda Express, imagine that) is constantly busy. My mom & I tried it when they first opened and it was okay but while we were eating we kept talking about all the taquerias and trucks in the neighborhood that are better. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
When my parents came to SF from Chicago in 1966, my mom had never even seen a taco. Even from Taco Bell, Mexican food was an exotic treat for her :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Aww... I like Chipotle. Although I usually just get the plate and not a burrito. But if Chipotle is to Mexican as Panda Express is to Chinese that really gives me pause cause Panda Express is just downright horrible. - rønin
I don't think it's horrible. It's boring. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Taco Bell is Panda Express IMO. Chipotle is... well, there's no American national chain of upscale fast casual Chinese food. - Andrew C (✔)
Pei Wei? P.F. Chang's? - Big Joe Silence
Dunno what Pei Wei is. PF Chang's is Chinese Cheesecake Factory. (Which, come to think of it, I don't think there's a Mexican variant on Cheesecake Factory.) - Andrew C (✔)
El Torito is the Cheesecake Factory of Mexican Food - Anika
^this. Chevy's and On the Border also qualify. - Corinne L
I stand corrected! I guess nature really does fill every available niche. - Andrew C (✔)
i've never been to Cheesecake Factory. probly part of why i'm not dead yet. - Big Joe Silence
Chevy's is more like the Ruby's of Mexican Food. - Anika
PF Chang's seems to be a salt factory, tossing bits of semi-Chinese food into the mix. Ate there once: overpriced, hostile to a single diner, and SO DAMN SALTY (as verified later in nutrition labeling) that one entree was four days' sodium. - Walt Crawford
I've also visited PF Chang's once. Once. I had to shake my head when we ordered 3 dishes and they all tasted pretty much the same. - rønin
Yup. - Big Joe Silence from Android
My friend who grew up in the Bay Area but now lives in So Cal gave me an explanation for why he eats at Chipotle that actually makes a lot of sense to me: he hasn't been able to find good dry burritos here in L.A. that doesn't come from late night taco trucks and he's not a big fan of wet burritos. - Victor Ganata
I eat at Chipotle because I know what I'm getting when it comes to ingredients (yes, there was the recent carnitas debacle, but I don't eat carnitas). I'm very sensitive to certain additives, so while I love authentic taqueria food, it's pretty much guaranteed to give me a bad reaction. - Corinne L
Corinne, that's fair. And Victor: so he should get them at the taco trucks... right? - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Andrew, yeah, but what are you supposed to do when you want a burrito between 2 am and 8 pm when the taco trucks aren't around? - Victor Ganata
Tacos Mexico! - Anika
They have decent midday trucks IME. In some areas, I guess. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I have similar feelings about Starbucks and coffee. - Holly's favorite Anna
Starbucks is tricky: Peet's (the original in this category) was a pioneer in making non-swill coffee readily available in more cities ("swill" from a famous SFChronicle headline), but these days many places have indie coffeehouses that understand good arabica beans and don't roast them to death. - Walt Crawford
I almost hate to mention the chain that made fresh, decent coffee readily available everywhere. Let's just say *they* deserve a break today on that particular issue. - Walt Crawford

Trip to urgent care to remove stubborn tick from Wade's neck. Was not the Lyme disease kind. But required nova sine and digging to get that sucker out.
Novacaine, autocorrect, you dummy - Laura Norvig from iPhone
:( glad that they got it out though - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yikes! I'm glad it wasn't the Lyme disease tick, but still...yikes! - Half Pint
Yikes. I got a tick on the back of my neck hiking in Tilden park. We checked the dogs but not the kids, lol. My parents took me to a hospital by our house. Right inside the ER in the hallway was a doctor smoking a cigarette. !!! the 70s. He burned the tick off my neck with his cig & we went home :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That is hilarious, Starmama. Always heard about holding a hot match head to the body but never tried it. I think if you kill it instead of getting it to back out it's no bueno. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Victor Ganata
I am still not convinced infinite scroll is a great idea.
I kind of hate it - Eric - Let Me Know
I'm fairly convinced it is not. - bentley
I hate it so much. - Jed
who said that? - Pete
It can easily ruin my entire day. Easily. - Hookuh Tinypants
I dislike it and turn it off whenever I can. - John (bird whisperer)
Just go to the footer to determine how to turn off infinite scroll.... Duh. - Joe
Not a fan at all. - Corinne L
Scroll to the bottom to click the contact/copyright/sitemap/anything else you desperately want to click, but can only momentarily see, and are not quick enough to click. - Michael W. May
Why? Pages are artificial, take screen real-estate, hurt performance, and don't fit a world where data is update constantly. - Todd Hoff
Hate it. 1) because you can't get to the footer 2) because so much data on one page 3) because you can't provide a meaningful permalink to discrete data. Todd, a page can be designed to pull updated data without having to be infinite scroll. - Laura Norvig
There's really no sense to a bookmark to a page when the underlying data set is always changing. And footer stuff is better in some sort of about page than wasting valuable screen real-estate, especially in a mobile world. Agreed on the last part, a page and infinite scroll do roughly the same thing on the backend, but the infinite scroll does make more sense when events are dynamically updating something like a twitter stream. Did I convince you? :-) - Todd Hoff
Maybe it's specific to iOS, but the worst part is when the page size gets so huge it starts triggering refreshes in all the other tabs I have open. - Victor Ganata
Page-search doesn't work on a page that isn't all there. - bentley
Can't stand it. - Greg GuitarBuster
sparklemotion - Big Joe Silence
I don't mind it where appropriate and when the designers have remembered that yes, this means they have to put the footer content elsewhere. I *don't* like it when you're on a news site and scroll down to the bottom of the article and suddenly you're on another article. - Deborah Fitchett

I want you all to know that I am committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world.
Been listening to NPR, huh? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed
Joseph R., John T., and Catherine D. - Marie
I was thinking that I have not heard anyone use the word verdant in a sentence in like forever. Then, reading a book this morning, the author uses verdant. Maybe I should read more. - Joe
On a whim, I just tried to visit their website at "macfound.org". Sadly, it doesn't work, unless you put the "www." in front of it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
that is a big pet peeve of mine (the www thing) and, sadly, typical of foundations and smaller nonprofits. - Laura Norvig
The last time I looked (maybe 15 years ago) there were annoying technical reasons (dns and cookies) to favor putting the website at www.herp.derp instead of at herp.derp :-( - Amit Patel
I worked for a restaurant, for a spell, that served a burger called "The Verdant Angel". The owner/manager wore a cocktail dress during lunch hour. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
but Amit, isn't it relatively easy to have some kind of mirror or redirect so that both URLs work? - Laura Norvig
Sure, web servers redirect both address forms to the same backend code. At one time the www was needed so it wouldn't conflict with other services like smtp.herp.derp on the same box, but that's long past. - Todd Hoff
The Other Yvonne
Logan doesn't play Minecraft yet, but watches YouTube videos about Minecraft whenever he gets the chance. It's all he talks about. I'm so sick of it already. If Minecraft was a person I'd punch it in the face.
*fistbump* - Marina's Godmother :-)
It's actually easier when they do play it, because then at least they're more likely to be doing it instead of talking about it! - Marina's Godmother :-)
*fistbump* back! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
My son sits here and watches people play it on YouTube. I don't get it. - Eric - Let Me Know
I'm afraid he'd then want to PLAY it all the time. That would drive me over the edge. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I play it and watch people play it. Then again people play football in the park then watch other people play it on TV so I'm cool with it. - Johnny
I used to stand and watch people play Pac-Man so I get the appeal, but I guess today it's just so much more content. It's such a big industry. - Eric - Let Me Know
His personality (he's 6) seems to be the more he watches the meaner and more disobedient he becomes. He's like an angry drunk. It creates more conflict in our home life. He needs more activity than he realizes. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
The live streams on twitch.tv are popular too. It's interesting watching different designs. - Rodfather
Yvonne, yes! Minecraft can't be at the expense of physical activity. OTOH ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Resistance is futile. Honestly, if you learn about it enough to set it up so he's just building stuff instead of playing as a game, it's pretty creative. But yeah, Wade talks about it a lot. I pretend to listen for awhile and then perfect the art of tuning it out or just break it to him that I don't want to hear about it. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Both my kids play and while my son typically isn't a very talkative person, he once jabbered to me about Minecraft for 2 hours straight while I was driving somewhere. No breaks. I am not exaggerating. He also watches one particular series of Minecraft Youtube vids and it's gotten to the point where I can't tell if the stories he tells me of what he's done in Minecraft is stuff he's actually done or he's just projecting himself onto these vids that he's watched. - rønin
Crazy how it's taken hold of so many! I'm sure we'll give in at some point, but not yet. =) - The Other Yvonne
Hahahaha, Stampy friggin' Longnose and iBallistic fecking Squid. Josiah knows if his behaviour falls below acceptable levels then his iPad is the first thing to go. There will be days when it seems everything he does is Minecraft related, but he might mix the actual activities up even though they all revolve around the same thing - so watching the videos, playing the game, reading the... more... - Melly

Thanks for the recommendation, Melly! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

Jayden talks at me about Pokemon, the Marvel Universe, Yu Gi Oh, Sonic and friends, all his obsessions...constantly. Every day. Ad nauseum. I care about none of it. He knows, and doesn't shut up. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm okay with discussing it occasionally. But they seem to get stuck on it. don't they? I try to steer the conversation elsewhere but it doesn't always work... - Melly
I've told Logan he can only watch Minecraft videos once a day during the school week. Hopefully then we'll make it to the end of the week unharmed. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I played Skylanders with Josiah today. Together, one mission takes about half an hour. That I can handle. I've tried Minecraft and just can't get into it! - Melly
I think Minecraft is great. It's digital legos. Except you can't walk around inside lego buildings. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, you can if you have enough legos. - Amit Patel
Today Josiah keeps talking about the Pokemon texture (?) pack in Minecraft. His interests are melding, help! - Melly
Melly, there's a mod called Pixelmon that Wade plays - sounds like he and Josiah have a lot in common. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Funny you should mention that - Josh is getting it for Josiah this weekend as a good behaviour/helper reward ;o) - Melly

Why aren't we talking about CES ? So much stuff came out this week - Chris Hale
I have the laptop in a drawer to make the background work. - Doc
Apps to me are what makes the web alot more powerful and contextual - Chris Hale
Chris - we will round up CES next week. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Connectivity v. Silos seems like the theme - Tom Guarriello
oh gotcha. But wont all the stuff from ces already be obsolete? Hehe. This industry moves too fast sometimes - Chris Hale
Internet needs a few more open protocols - Chris Hale
plague of auto-play ads that stall and don't stream right are the worst ever. - clive boulton
especially for video and audio - Chris Hale
ChatCenter is http and URLs - Keith Teare
Advertising needs a new way of thinking on Mobile - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Yahoo might remake advertising buy CNN and flow ads from mobile to TV? - clive boulton
I agree Moe. - Chris Hale
i think beacons will change a lot of that. I worry advertisers and companies will ruin a perfectly cool technology - Chris Hale
scroll to the bottom of http://www.kevinmarks.com/newclue... and see the interactions - Kevin Marks
darn, i missed Keith hitting himself - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apps simplify the web - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I just fell off - Kevin Marks

ill call you back - Tina Chase Gillmor

App bubble in the tech economy about to shrink or burst? - christina sponselli
Apple app designers currently having robust debate about economics of today's app world - Tom Guarriello
did yall hear that figure that just came out that the IOS app store clears like 500k a week worldwide? - Chris Hale
Interesting that the clues harp on apps and ads but don't have anything to say about "public relations" - Frank Paynter
Yes, some apps also support those Values... Think reading and sharing apps that allow various workflows for bookmarking, organizing, research, writing, thinking.... - Darius Dunlap
Brands need to stop advertising to Consumers and engage with us more on mobile. If they do that then they will get our name, our payment details and our chat walls - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Steve, i tweeted you a link to a picture of the Cluetrain Books- the original and the 10th anniversary update - Dale Lature
Frank, we hoped that jpeople could take the too many clues, and run off and add their own. We actually took on PR pretty bluntly in Cluetrain the book. Didn't want to repeat ourselves. - Doc
2015 iOS based Macbook coming -- (a definite maybe) -- no App bubble! - clive boulton
i think the problem is that technology can do some scary stuff and there is very little governance about limits to how advertisers should use data they have collected. I think don't be creepy never enters advertisers minds. They really need to think about this stuff more - Chris Hale
Maybe the app bubble is apps available only in company stores. - Doc
Beacons - Moe Glitz from iPhone

the problem I have with RSS isn't the web - Kevin Marks

Like TV - Moe Glitz from iPhone
yes darius - Kevin Marks
+1 david! - Doc
yeah Kevin. I hear ya. I have been considering building my own app this whole thing irks me that much. Thats part of why i built my own home automation framework. Everyone elses system has a lot of gaps - Chris Hale
silos need incentives to interoperate (Judy's built Epic Systems EHR profits on silos) - clive boulton
Thank you Steve! Authoring today is easier for the average human being! - Simon Benvenutto
I do wish folks wouldn't perpetrate the idea the GoDaddy crap sandwich is inevitable. Support and promote Hover.com and other good vendors. - Darius Dunlap
do you think people want more apps or less apps? - Chris Hale
More Chris - Moe Glitz from iPhone
are we still on the air? - Doc
can you hera us? - Kevin Marks
They don't search on Mobile - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Not here - Tom Guarriello
i am middle of the road. Sometimes i get frustrated when i look at my app screen and see apps. I find myself having to use spotlight search on my iphone almost all the time to find a particular app - Chris Hale

It's the sponsor's fault... - Doc
Welcome to the REAL Gillmor Gang, David - Tom Guarriello
The five of us are taking the opportunity to swig some cheap bourbon - david weinberger
ARe we back? - Doc
I never thought the web was particularly democratic: it is server centric, you always surf alone, you need an IP, HTML skills, etc. Nowhere near as democratic as a free, open, P2P medium such as CB radio :) that's yet to be realised, on a global scale. - Simon Benvenutto
We seem to be up on ustream. No? - david weinberger
But an iPad, especially when outfitted with a keyboard (because I'm an old guy who types fast) is a really useful tool. - Darius Dunlap
Video no audio - Tom Guarriello
refresh ustream to see us - Kevin Marks
Not yet, Darius - Apple keeps back fitting iOS features to OS X... - clive boulton
Steve, we lost you when you were commenting about Facebook and video. - christina sponselli

audio is back for me - Graham Zulauf
we hear you - clive boulton
video is working - Graham Zulauf
Steve=Pinball Wizard? - christina sponselli
Yep, Clive. But that's a long way from "iOS Mac". They're not dumbing down the mac, but bringing some really useful integration to the workflow of multiple devices. - Darius Dunlap
ah ha, you're still there! - Laura Norvig
So weird. We've NEVER had the Tricaster fail like that. It wasn't our power. - Tina Chase Gillmor
and some more levels of control via app store in Mac OS X - david weinberger
email, and even newsgroups... :-) - Darius Dunlap
I just love the way Kevin says "Twitter". ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
There's too many Apps on iOS and Android for someone to ignore bringing apps to the desktop. - clive boulton
Totally agree with Kevin... Ev does a nice job taking about some of this in his recent post. - Darius Dunlap
As long as their friends are there. - christina sponselli
I agree the app stores and the web in general are becoming very nanny state, its less about communicating and more about transacting, which is sad... that's the price we are paying for great cheap infrastructure, compared to 15 years ago. - Simon Benvenutto
Well said, Keith - Tom Guarriello
+1 david weinberger "some more levels of control via app store in Mac OS X" - clive boulton
Yep, Simon and David... agree about App Stores. They (especially Apple) need to think deeply about what they are for and how they should work for users. - Darius Dunlap
That flavor of idealism is hard to imagine amongst human beings, Keith - Tom Guarriello
Tom - I'm still hoping :-) - Keith Teare
And, I applaud you for it, K - Tom Guarriello
Missing from enterprise is some way to orchestrate apps into a suite collection on/off the desktop - clive boulton
slack does that to some extent - Kevin Marks
Aren't we dependent on the control of ISPs anyway? - Alex de Soto
looking at slack - thx Kevin - clive boulton
Human beings are imperfect. But the New Clues remind people who weren't there at the beginning that there WAS a philosophy - Francine Hardaway
A lot of it has to do with being right. - Darius Dunlap
Thanks, francine - david weinberger
Dave's listicle was easier to read. - Francine Hardaway
I shared it with people who said tl;dr - Kevin Marks
+1 Francine - Tom Guarriello
It's related to Powerpoint - Francine Hardaway
yep, like the listicle - Laura Norvig
+1 on the philosophy, not specifically the listicle - Tom Guarriello
Dave's a talented guy. I just wished he worked and played well with others - Francine Hardaway
It makes the Cluetrain a franchise, like Terminator - Francine Hardaway
Or, Hunger Games! - Tom Guarriello
They're baaaaaack! - Tina Chase Gillmor
chrome team is working at bringing Android Apps to chromebook. Apple / MSFT can't ignore. - clive boulton
Lovely irony - Darius Dunlap

Keith Teare: Venture Trotskyist - Kevin Marks
Did you get approval on piece before Medium published it? - christina sponselli
Keith is way left - Tina Chase Gillmor
when Keith says "can I pick your brain", watch out - Kevin Marks
It's always a question of size ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Heyo! Trotsky jokes, amirite? - david weinberger
Trotsky was "picked" he never did the "picking" :-) - Keith Teare
+1 for Kevin's Venture trotskyite - david weinberger
Oh crap, we're all gonna die - Tina Chase Gillmor
Fuck those yellow spores! Hooyah! - david weinberger
I told you: Hunger Games!!! - Tom Guarriello
Medium too trendy already. Used to be cool ... - Laura Norvig
If I bring a smile to Doc's lips ikt's all been worthwhile - david weinberger
Doc's right. It keeps moving - Francine Hardaway
Medium: nobody goes there anymore...it's too crowded - Tom Guarriello
I agree with Doc, and I'm hopeful, but in human society there are always those looking to profit from manipulating the system. - Darius Dunlap
It's not about apps. It's about open vs. closed. - david weinberger
And individual vs. copllaborative - david weinberger
And consume vs create - david weinberger
An app world that did that would be fine - david weinberger
It's closed that doesn't survive. THat's why the companies fall - Francine Hardaway
I thought Medium is how you deal with site-deaths. - Todd Hoff
I want an app that eats itself and leaves crumbs on my screen. - Doc
My favorite apps are all about that, David. And they are mostly on Mac and iOS. - Darius Dunlap
Apps are a red herring that the New Clues raise -- but it's a herring that stands fsor an important school o fish - david weinberger
are there apps that are open that aren't just glorified web interfaces ...? - Laura Norvig
Yep, David. - Darius Dunlap
Back we go to notifications - Francine Hardaway
