We've just been told that our campus website platform is moving to Drupal. I'm looking for some libraries who use this for their sites so we can see examples of what we can do. Any pros/cons/FYIs would also be appreciated.
There are some examples in the FleetThought portfolio -- http://fleetthought.com/ -- since one of the Jarrells is a librarian, they have libraries as customers. :) - Jenica
Oh, there are some lovely sites linked from there. Thank you! - GretelSK
Digital-library platforms built on Drupal include Islandora and Mukurtu, so checking out their sites for installation lists might help you too. - RepoRat
Ours is on Drupal, though I wouldn't hold it up as a paragon of anything: http://www.saintmarys.edu/library also, LibGuides is built on Drupal, if I'm not mistaken. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
https://groups.drupal.org/librari... examples. I don't think LibGuides is built on Drupal. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
million happy to help - Blake

Serious agenda today - going to be quite the battle against the prospect of staying horizontal
DONE unpack - Laura Norvig
DONE except folding last load ... laundry. lots of laundry - Laura Norvig
IN PROGRESS. Ugh but good prep for taxes. financial aid app for wade's school - Laura Norvig
DONE car wash - Laura Norvig
hand clean car seats - Laura Norvig
condition car seats - Laura Norvig
So far, horizontalness is winning - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I feel your pain. - L to tha B from Android
I did nothing yesterday, but today I unpacked and did the laundry. Fixing to git to the car wash next. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

This is so perfect - I'm working my way through every season of Top Chef. Almost done with Season 3 right now. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Multiple people now (including my doctor) have told me I need to slow down a bit, relax. I have no idea how to do this. What do you do to relax?
It kind of depends. In the right circumstances, exercise is more relaxing than watching tv, but other times it's the opposite. Cooking, reading, going thrifting, and doing laundry are all things that i find relaxing, generally. Also, organizing stuff. - Kirsten from Android
Coloring. Sometimes cleaning/organizing. Going out with girlfriends. Reading. Music. - L to tha B from Android
Sleeping. - Uli
Yoga taught me how to relax. - Slippy
Knitting! Having lunch on a picnic blanket under a tree for two hours while the sun bakes me. Meditative train rides to work with music. Meditative dish washing chores. :P Naps! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Dolce far niente - the very fact that you ask what people "do" to relax speaks volumes. Exercise and hobbies can be relaxing, but mastering the art of doing nothing may be what you need - Laura Norvig from iPhone
For myself, reading, watching TV, going for a walk in a park, playing video games - whatever lets me 'let go' of doing anything else while I'm doing it. - Jennifer Dittrich
One thing I do is to consciously relax as many muscles as I can. It's surprising how much tension I carry in my face without realizing until I relax. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
What Laura said. Just staring off at nothing is something I'm trying to reclaim. Whiling away time on nothing in particular. And I'm all with Uli on the sleep thing. - MoTO: Team Marina
Learn from a cat? They're pretty good at it. - RepoRat
^^this. Cats are Zen masters. - Corinne L
LB mentioned coloring. Several of my friends were coloring (yes, coloring books) for a while for relaxation. I bought some stained glass and art deco ones at the museum gift shop for a friend. - Betsy

The CEO of our org just used gratuitous quote marks in an email. Are you eff-ing kidding me?
complete with spaces around each quote mark - Laura Norvig
You guys " Rock " Can always depend on all of you to " Bring It " when needed. Thanks - Laura Norvig
Oh dear. I musta logged off before that went out. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
lol. Reply all: Are you being "facetious"? - YvonneM
t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
first and foremost I love making connections... introducing people for mutual benefit, finding the solution to a problem, linking a need with a resource, that's what really floats my boat. doing it for a cause or mission I care about is icing.
if I could land a gig with that aspect to it, in any field, I know I'd be happy at work most of the time. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
librarian tendencies, clearly. - Laura Norvig

Comparison of Napa to Loma Prieta Earthquakes: http://www.vox.com/2014... - mary hodder

Thanks, Mary. You look very pretty today:-) - Francine Hardaway
Thanks Francine.. - mary hodder
Also.. here is the earthquake watch map: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthqu... - mary hodder

Gray is quite an unimaginative name for a cat - Francine Hardaway

I'm in tears - Francine Hardaway
Halley just belittled my whole lifestyle - Francine Hardaway
I think Halley may be in the minority :) - Rebecca Woodcock
My entire house smells like dog. - Francine Hardaway
There IS no tech this week. Leo la Porte said so. He's been struggling for topics. - Francine Hardaway
That's LEO - Tina Chase Gillmor
The price is dropping because the big companies can give it away and force other people to do so. - Francine Hardaway

Two thumbs up. Because one is never enough.

Love you, girl. Thanks. I haven't told anyone at work outside of Regina's team yet. They're waiting to hear on two more funding possibilities before they make it official. Just fyi. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Also I have major bookshelf envy from this awesome pic of you. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
My sister-in-law's. You would have even more envy if I posted the pic of the views from this Vancouver apartment. - Laura Norvig
She can keep the view. I'll take the bookshelves. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Those bookshelves are definitely rad. - RepoRat
Brian Johns
I was going to give Stephen Mack a pass on the whole "celebrity deaths come in threes" because I figured Robin Williams was big enough to count for three. But now with Lauren Bacall, I'm not so sure.
Don't mess with me, Johns. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Start a 48 hour clock and we'll see. - Brian Johns
Mack speaks the truth. Always in threes. - Mary Carmen
Does the nascar driver killed over the weekend count as #1? I don't want to hear of another celeb death... - Lola Bean (Penguin)
Ooh - good idea. If we don't have anything better to go with by Thursday night we'll go with him and call it a triad. - Brian Johns
I stand by my previous posts debunking the "celebrity deaths come in threes" superstition. http://www.zeigen.com/blog... - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Does Philip Seymour Hoffman not count? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
oh my god. - Laura Norvig
The fact you can't name the NASCAR killer means he doesn't count. GL to all celebs. - Louis Gray
According to my mom, Ed Nelson from Peyton Place & The Twilight Zone is #3. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
If Thursday night (an arbitrary deadline) comes and goes and nobody else (arbitrarily) famous enough dies then I will consider that scientific proof that the "celebrities die in threes" thing is a myth. I may be willing to join the “Celebrity deaths come in 1.7s” camp based on this very scientific data. - Brian Johns
Followup and Conclusion: After an extensive period of data collection and analysis over the last 4 days, I have changed my mind and joined Stephen's 1.7 bandwagon. Basically, I picked Robin Williams as a test and I haven't seen two other similarly noteworthy celebrities die so I'm going to generalize that experience over the entire realm of possibility and call it a scientific fact. If... more... - Brian Johns
Good analysis, Sparky! - Stephen Mack
This is how science is done, except I should have gotten a grant. - Brian Johns
Jay Adams has passed away. They do come in threes. - NOT THE CRICKET from iPhone
Who? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
One of the Z-Boys/ Lords of Dogtown. One of the guys who was involved in evolving skateboarding to it's modern style. - NOT THE CRICKET from iPhone
Sarah G.
Just found out that this little old couple that were neighbors of my grandma and always came to holiday dinners worked on Manhattan Project!
I kind of wish 12 year old sglassme was more interested in the scientific experiences of the people sitting at the big table. - sglassme
At least the ones that spoke English.... - Sarah G. from iPhone
I did learn how to fold a origami crane at one holiday, so I have that going for me. - sglassme
And write our name using Egyptian hieroglyphics! - Sarah G.
My uncle was a GI in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos then. He went back in 1950 (according to this article he wrote http://library.lanl.gov/cgi-bin... ) and stayed at Los Alamos his whole life. I always thought it was very glamorous but at the same time I was later somewhat horrified during my rabid anti-nuke years. - Laura Norvig
It seems the one Dr S did something with finding safe levels of radiation exposure, which either means he was trying to save U.S. workers or find out how much you needed to do to kill other people. I'm hoping it's the former. :) - Sarah G.
I didn't realize his wife practiced under her maiden name.. but I guess being a female physician in the 40s was a pretty feminist thing to do, so I shouldn't be surprised. - sglassme
I know, right? I also didn't realize what kind of doctors they were - PhDs or MD. aka Fake or Real Doctors according to Grandpa. :) - Sarah G.
ಠ_ಠ - sglassme
Don't get mad at me because you're not a real doctor. - Sarah G.
Dr is a *courtesy* title for physicians, historically. Doctor is an academic degree, after all. - Pete : Team Marina
Well damn. - Sarah G.
HA! - sglassme
(thanks Pete) - sglassme
As good Catholics you'll remember the Doctors of the Church ;) - Pete : Team Marina
Early uni doctors would have included those in Medicine, potentially. - Pete : Team Marina
I read a book about the Spanish flu a couple of years ago which also covered the evolution of physician's training in the US, and pretty much even through the 1920s it was common to have high school grads who interned with practitioners for their education. So, suck it Sarah :) - sglassme
Kevin Fox
Wow, FriendFeed was acquired by Facebook five years ago yesterday and it's still up and running.
As noted on twitter. - Joe
Well, he posted it on Friendfeed first, and even Ben Golub liked it. - NOT THE CRICKET
Sorry, didn't see that one till later. - Joe
just as a back channel, stay in touch via https://friendfeeders.quora.com/... in case FF goes down. What's Paul B. up to these days? I really like Bret's Quip app. - Adriano
I'm still here! - Kevin Fox from iPhone
HI KEVIN! - Stephen Mack
Five years should not be allowed to go by so fast. Tell it to stop, please. - Laura Norvig

I went on a Middle East peace tour in 1984 which included Syria and Jordan, and the secret basement office of a militant Palestinian faction. We were not able to visit Lebanon, though, as it was too dangerous at the time. #saturdayff
Wow. I think you were safer then compared to now. - Janet from FFHound!
I think it was 1983, actually. That makes more sense. We had hoped to go to Gaza also and weren't able to. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Steve Gillmor
GIllmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PT participate at http://www.ustream.tv/gillmor...
here - Keith Teare
here too - Kevin Marks
Topic for today's GG: Sup http://techcrunch.com/2014.... App half-life now measured in weeks. - Tom Guarriello
OMG I'm available to attend a recording! - Matthew Voshell
...and go in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 - Murray Macdonald
Here is where the new FB messenger App is headed...http://techcrunch.com/2014... - Tony Stanislawski
Here. - Robert Scoble
im going to watch through the roku ustream private channel i wonder how far delayed ill be - Matthew Voshell
We are gonna talk about two-app strategy for sure. - Robert Scoble
That one above is for you Robert! - Tony Stanislawski
@Robert did you see that tweet i sent to most for the Frontline piece that recently aired? - Matthew Voshell
BTW My little experiment last week, I mentioned all of you in a tweet, only Keith responded. I know that I could have got Scobles attention on FB. Steve G and Kevin not so sure how I would - Tony Stanislawski
I saw it, but as keith had responded i thought I'd be redundant - Kevin Marks
The world is coming to an end. I might as well watch The Gillmor Gang live - Francine Hardaway
Excellent plan, Francine - Tom Guarriello
Got it Kevin - Tony Stanislawski
Tony, do you mean this one? http://www.pbs.org/wgbh... - Rob Underwood
I was thinking of Robert S too when I watched the original - Rob Underwood
No I have not seen that...another thing to watch! - Tony Stanislawski
Matthew, nope. - Robert Scoble
What's up Steve! - Chris Hale
ppl are turnig off push notications (in some categories) http://andrewchen.co/2014... - clive boulton
I will not install fb chat. Don't want it. Same with 4square. - Murray Macdonald
Wow. Robert jumped right in - Chris Hale
Per a story that relates to last weeks show, and what the gang is trying to understand; http://www.pbs.org/wgbh... - Matthew Voshell
Path like 4sq has 2 app strategy - clive boulton
I agree -- the FourSquare/Swarm split feels different than the messenger/FB "split" - Rob Underwood
I love the new FourSquare app, and Messenger is quite useful. I dig that too. Both are very useful. And, the new Messenger features are super sweet! You guys should check it out. - Jason Nunnelley
Can we make the Dock disappear on Robert's screen? - Tom Guarriello
These apps will have to provide value to users. They seem like distractions more than value. I communicate with my friends through other channels (text, voice, email, beer) - Murray Macdonald
I always view myself as the quintessential user, and I will now never use Foursquare and give tips. I used to do it when checking in. - Francine Hardaway
I have too many other ways to find out where to eat - Francine Hardaway
Question, can you be friends in messenger and not on FB yet? - Tony Stanislawski
But I do like and use Messenger - Francine Hardaway
Tony yes - Francine Hardaway
Yelp is my go-to app for food. I don't want people to know where I am eating. - Murray Macdonald
Agree with Robert on separating of FB apps. I think this could be an attempt to improve reputation for individual components of FB - Chris Hale
@Tony, yes, depending on your privacy settings you can control who can message you; either public, friends of friends, firends, or ony me - Matthew Voshell
Max Schrems suite was stirred by a talk from a Facebook privacy lawyer. “The message was, ‘Europeans are cute with their privacy laws... - clive boulton
My sister (reasonably technical) just made the mistake of having a private conversation on a relative's public Facebook feed. I explained the 2-app split and she's on board now. ;-) - Ian McGee
Messenger and the FB strategy are not the same as 4Square and Swarm - Francine Hardaway
whatever happened to the big "skype" integration into facebook chat? seems like they've kinda forgotten about that? - Matthew Voshell
I think instant messaging in general is a ungodly steaming hot mess - Chris Hale
My wife told me she uninstalled Messenger because of the permission requirements, to which I responded "how are you going to talk to your daughter when she's in Japan?" When in Osaka, my kid only talked to us on Messenger, because it's mobile, desktop, etc. Warren Whitlock called me on the voice calling feature built into Messenger, before I even knew it was there. Cool as hell! - Jason Nunnelley
On iOS, the lock screen notifications arent written correctly, i get a single new notification per message... its awful, they need to allow it to do a "count" of messages from the same persons - Matthew Voshell
My parents and many of my 50+ year old friends are not on facebook. Neither are my kids. - Murray Macdonald
Matthew: we can argue about that. I really like the single notifications per message coming in. - Robert Scoble
Yeah, but I see the utility of FB Messenter immediately, but my perception of FOursquare and Swarm is silly - Francine Hardaway
Swarm is getting better and better! - Tony Stanislawski
I still can't figure out the Swarm "nearby plans" -- it would seem weird to just show up in person at someone's plan (e.g., dinner), even if they are friends. - Rob Underwood
I think what they did is underestimate the gamification of it, which everyone loved and they are bringing those back! - Tony Stanislawski
Robert was talking on his fb this week about everyone who is up in arms over the permission stuff. Its just people pontificating about privacy because they have nothing better to get inflamed about. In a contextual age the notion of privacy is a radically different thing than the traditional notion of what privacy is - Chris Hale
Foursquare made a lot of mistakes. - Francine Hardaway
Good work, Tina! - Tom Guarriello
@Robert re: FB messenger chat notification; if i get 10 messages now my entire screen is full and i cant see any of the other messages (unless i scroll) i think having a count like imessage nativly does its much better to scale - Matthew Voshell
LOL Kevin I know who to message now! - Tony Stanislawski
Matthew: I do wish you had a choice. I see value in how you want to use notifications too. - Robert Scoble
Did facebook ever try to buy four square? isnt this a feature they portray in "silicon valley" when hooloui reverse engineerings the same feature as pied piper; facebook just did that wither thier "check-ins" and foursquare is dead just like that - Matthew Voshell
It all comes down to value. Can they generate more value for their users, and in some way extract that value in a form that positively affects the balance sheet? If that answer is yes, do it. - Josh Bradshaw
By leaving a tip are you not really checking in, just not in the present! - Tony Stanislawski
Bingo Kevin! - Tony Stanislawski
Hey @Robert. I had an interesting thought. Maybe these companies are splitting there apps because of a User experience crisis on mobile. Just like a webpage with too much content on it, maybe they are trying to keep there apps focused and uncluttered so people don't feel overwhelmed by an apps complexity - Chris Hale
When I use it I use it in combo with Google and 4sq - Tony Stanislawski
Really easier to type "coffee shop near me" into Google - Francine Hardaway
Worth noting Yelp has/had check-in ... just no one used it that I can tell. - Rob Underwood
As an app developer, I can appreciate how hard it can be to organize all the functions of an app when an app tries to include the "kitchen sink" in there app - Chris Hale
Don't resist FB Messenger, folks. It's worth it. I use it to talk to my friends in London. - Francine Hardaway
oye,,, a few technical weirdnesses today. its always something :-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
yelp reviews are like amazon reviews, take them with a grain of salt; biz owners check thier yelp and want it to look good; there's been stories latly of owners bullying peopel to leave good reviews or chraging for bad ones http://mashable.com/2014... - Matthew Voshell
I have had experiences like the one @Robert described. I think this is a drastically undersold feature of FB. It really has helped me meet up with friends in other towns - Chris Hale
Many Yelp reviews are years old (pre apps era) - clive boulton
FB Messenger is quite useful. especial for a small group chat - Tina Chase Gillmor
I use Google Now all the time. Its contextual awareness is great. - Murray Macdonald
There is only so many Messaging Silo's to invest time in. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Listening to @Robert all I can think of now is Peter Brady and "Time to Change" - https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Rob Underwood
Change is not hard it is fun! What would life be like without change! - Tony Stanislawski
group chat is key. twitter is dropping the ball there - Kevin Marks
Queue steve and his notification love fest - Matthew Voshell
WhatsApp is the most popular one that friends and family use for Group Chats - Moe Glitz from iPhone
To me, i think a lot of these chat silos will be broken down in IOS 8 once apps can talk to each other. - Chris Hale
How did Facebook Messenger take over what AIM used to own? Why did people switch? - Matthew Voshell
We are using Slack a ton across our development team at Relay now. - Rob Underwood
yes, Slack is excellent - Keith Adler
We love it. - Rob Underwood
Slack rocks. - Robert Scoble
In about two weeks we've moved 80% of our internal communication to Slack .. and it integrates with stuff like Github and JIRA, etc. - Rob Underwood
I have a plane going over sorry - Kevin Marks
yes it integrates with ALL the things - Kevin Marks
Who will acquire Slack. Apple, Facebook, Google or Microsoft - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Twitter SHOULD - Keith Adler
@Moe -- good question. Maybe LinkedIn? - Rob Underwood
I hope none of them - Kevin Marks
Apple or MSFT would bugger it up - Kevin Marks
good point - Keith Adler
Facebook is too off message - Kevin Marks
maybe google, but they'd have channel conflict with plus/hangouts - Kevin Marks
Yahoo is desperate enough. - Murray Macdonald
It's great for our team because it gave a separate notifications stream that would get everyone's attention - Keith Adler
I love learning about new tools from you guys. *runs off to check out Slack* - Laura Norvig
Rob: slack does git, ok, now i'll check out the app - clive boulton
Stewart would not sell to Yahoo again - Kevin Marks
hmm. slack sounds interesting - Chris Hale
Any App that solves problems will always be in the line of fire for the usual suspects - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Remember when Whisper was the buzz? They come, they go... - Murray Macdonald
The searchable database, shared group environment is what's great - Keith Adler
@kevin: any indie concept of app-to-app notifications (yeah on the phone)? - clive boulton
It has put our work messaging in it's own separate channel (important when all the employees are overloaded) - Keith Adler
i used to work for the company that managed the backend for whisper - Chris Hale
webmentions are the indie concept, but not very app-focused - Kevin Marks
Ugh. I only didn't remove Yo because I forgot about it - Francine Hardaway
webmentions - thx - clive boulton
Yo is too small to go to the effort of deleting if it doesn't bug us too much... - Ian McGee
There is easily a Top 20 of major Messaging Apps. It's hard to get into the Top 5 and stay there - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm starting to turn off notifications on some apps because I'm being driven nuts by notifications - Francine Hardaway
Yo was awesome for the World Cup...just got a Yo every time a goal was scored. - Tony Stanislawski
I turn of/deny notification on all apps except the social networking apps - Adnan
Yo shows why brogrammers are a stain on silicon valley - Matthew Voshell
what the bejesus is a brogrammer? - Chris Hale
Yo is brogrammers trying to be phatic and just shouting - Kevin Marks
brogrammer is programmer who acts like a frat boy - Kevin Marks
iOS 8 could be the American Bandstand of Messaging Apps - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The device IS the app! Long term, Apple will be the best and most reliable contextual API provider. The hardware is a vehicle for the software. - Richard Hendrix
I blame Aaron Sorkin - Kevin Marks
i'd liken them to Ogar from Revenger of the nerds... that knows javascript - Matthew Voshell
apple is not a great cloud api provider - Kevin Marks
I turn noisy app notifications off / also noisy folks off - clive boulton
@Kevin... lol Aaron had nothing to do with this! - Matthew Voshell
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH @Kevin - Chris Hale
he reified the dickish programmer - Kevin Marks
The API isn't in the cloud - it's on the device and just transmitted through the cloud if need be - Richard Hendrix
Kevin So you are saying Mark Zuckerburg is a dickish programmer? - Matthew Voshell
I was going to ask Robert if he still had Yo on the phone. - JayVig
I will install it if it guarantees Arsenal will win another trophy this year, Keith! - Tom Guarriello
to some extent - Kate Losse's Boy Kings describes it more clearly - Kevin Marks
Man City are the champions i believe, ahem - Matthew Voshell
but Sorkin created a dickish programmer archetype (possibly intending to be dismissive) but it became a hero role model - Kevin Marks
There should be an intercourse Messaging App. Yes Yes Yes! That would be huge Global Big Data - Moe Glitz from iPhone
hierarchy of noise: yogrammer > brogrammer > programmer - clive boulton
I was looking for this earlier but all the Slick fans... Hipchat is very similar.. a little nicer actaully.. https://www.hipchat.com/ - Matthew Voshell
that's like google's "pay per emotion" patent - Kevin Marks
Slack's integration wins - Kevin Marks
What's that patent, Kevin? - Tom Guarriello
@Kevin.. yea price might too; but idk here are hipchat integrations http://help.hipchat.com/knowled... - Matthew Voshell
Thanks, Kevin. - Tom Guarriello
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!! - Chris Hale
googs new user tracking bridges mobile apps and web http://blogs.wsj.com/digits... - clive boulton
Once again folks the book is called "age of context" get it on amazon now http://www.amazon.com/Age-Con... - Matthew Voshell
So emotion sensing watches will start driving recommendations to restaurants where people are happy? - Murray Macdonald
The people who hate the change are most vocal - Tony Stanislawski
I did a focus group on the Nespresso machine - Tina Chase Gillmor
Vessyl an early (and ridiculous) example of something that's definitely going to become pervasive. - Tom Guarriello
makeup sex heartrate? - Murray Macdonald
Vessle is awesome cuase it tells you everything thats on the side of the can.. colbert did a nice job with it http://www.theverge.com/2014... - Matthew Voshell
Murray: chocolate for Maryam. :-) - Robert Scoble
so all those home automation protocols that apple and google are working are going to be a big key to this contextual future. - Chris Hale
Nespresso machines are yummy -- but now sounding like "The Circle" - Rob Underwood
I like having a real espresso machine. - Kevin Marks
it's a balance of trade -- are people going to be willing to continue to give up privacy for the convenience and serendipity of discovery? - Rob Underwood
Kevin: sometimes I like a 3-star restaurant. Other times McDonalds. :-) - Robert Scoble
BLE sensors have standardized discovery. - Murray Macdonald
@Rob for music? Movies? Sure... for my home... ehhh :/ - Matthew Voshell
scary future... - Adnan
Yep! That's what I'm saying. Apple becomes the arbiter of the sensors, in effect turning the bundle of sensors into a contextual API that Apple provides. The device is just a part of the programming. - Richard Hendrix
Taxi Trails App in Stockholm tracks the travels of all their taxis via GPS to discover Stockholm Hot Spots - Moe Glitz from iPhone
BLE does but Proximity UUID's do not - Keith Teare
why not push a webmentions notification at an app for scalability of permissions - clive boulton
They are trying to stop tracking the UIDs of their devices, not the sensors. - Murray Macdonald
What apple is doing with beacons is criminal. It's like doing away with DNS so that your computer could only talk to hosts through applications that embed specific IP addresses. The web would have never been born. I put some real effort into a DNS for beacons and I'm now I'm glad I didn't spend more time on it. - Todd Hoff
And Apple is banning BLE to Proximity UUID discovery - Keith Teare
I already did - Francine Hardaway
How exactly are they banning that Keith? - Murray Macdonald
See the thing that scares me about apples approach is that all the data flows directly to apple. I think its important for some of these sensors and things that will talk to each other to be localized to the app in question not to platform itself - Chris Hale
Apple is very good about explaining how they never "touch" your data.... google kind of skirts around it - Matthew Voshell
Android BLE provides a better beacon API. I can detect and respond to beacons without needing to know about them in advance. Apple requires you to pre-register your beacons for the app to respond. - Murray Macdonald
You can set whatever Major and Minor values you want on most BLE beacons. - Murray Macdonald
Can you become a beacon yet on android Murray? - Todd Hoff
Context should not be app specific. Location context is environmental, not app specific. - Murray Macdonald
Murray - yes, all accurate - Keith Teare
Are you asking if an Android phone can transmit as a beacon? - Murray Macdonald
Murray it can not, yet. - Robert Scoble
Apple won't approve apps that try to discover beacons the app doesn't already know about - Keith Teare
Robert: Cannot what? Transmit as a beacon? - Murray Macdonald
Apple will make the browser ? - chris dowling
That's not true. A proper beacon browser would allow you to whitelist desired beacons. There's no reason you need to be spammed. That would just be a bad beacon browser. A good one would let you scan an environment and add the ones you like to your whitelist. - Murray Macdonald
Anybody should be able to make the browser. - Keith Teare
Hearing Apple scaling its Cassandra team ahead of something big - clive boulton
zeroconf, not zigbee - Kevin Marks
Here's a use case: I'm walking down a sidewalk and I want to get information on restaurants on my path. You want to get coupons, specials, menus etc from your local context. Using a general system I could get the id, look it up, apply filters, merge with social streams, figure out the interaction pattern, and present the UI to the user. This can't happen with an iphone. - Todd Hoff
So cute. There's a little Keith in the room - Tina Chase Gillmor
coupons meh - Kevin Marks
Sorry Kevin, yes, zeroconf - Keith Teare
A good beacon browser app would let you enable/disable types of beacons. Coupons, restaurants, etc... Users would turn on and off they things they are interested in. The browser wouldn't spam your notifications, it would present them when you asked, unless you had previously whitelisted them. - Murray Macdonald
saving money bothers you? - Todd Hoff
They don't have the majority of costco customers, just app purchasers. - Murray Macdonald
Murray: Android can not transmit as a beacon. - Robert Scoble
Maybe there will be a "discoverability" ON/OFF setting like in Bluetooth. - Alex de Soto

It wasn't this stuff about beacons - Francine Hardaway
Robert: Agreed, but it will soon. Also I see little need as phones are already discoverable. Apple can act as an iBeacon, but what is the use? It could be useful in the future when finding friends, etc... but those apps aren't popular as most of that is done through GPS and the cloud, not BLE. - Murray Macdonald

Until recently I didn't know that lightning buds weren't everywhere. We don't see them much in the city, but we all have seen them at some point. Where don't they live? And why? - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

In 1957, a Dallas housewife had her recipe for cake made with German's Baking Chocolate published in a local paper. It became wildly popular, and soon people all over the USA were making and enjoying her German's chocolate cake.
Language being what it is, we all know it now as German chocolate cake, and I bet a bunch of y'all thought it came from Germany, huh? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Well, that explains why my grandmother used to grumble about it not being really German. - Jennifer Dittrich
That lady is the reason my childhood sucked. My mother loved that cake so much that she'd ordered it for everyone's birthday. I hate coconut, walnuts/pecans and chocolate cake. - Anika
Oh, yuck. - Jennifer Dittrich
My family went through a phase when we'd frequently purchase the frozen Pepperidge Farm German Chocolate Cake, and I remember having at least one birthday cake that was GCC. I think it's the reason why I'm not a fan of coconut these days (unless it's moist, chewy macaroons). - Corinne L
Pretty much my favorite cake and yeah, it all started for me with the Pepperidge Farm version. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Wonder how many people were initiated into GCC by Pepperidge Farm? :-) - Corinne L

is THE SCOBLE here yet? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Scobbie, Scobbie - Tina Chase Gillmor
got mixed feelings about the whole experiment thing - Chris Hale
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sandberg - Kevin Marks
rofl - Chris Hale
here's the show link ustream.tv/GillmorGang - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think this whole thing kicks over a hornets nest of what if's. To me its a demonstration of power that a corporation has - Chris Hale
what do they have to disclose legally? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I am not really all that bothered by it, its more the principle of the thing - Chris Hale
that is a weird screech Im hearing - Tina Chase Gillmor
feels like a slippery slope. what if one day they decided to only show posts of people who are suicidal and see if anybody else actually commits suicide. - Laura Norvig
Say what you do, and do what you say. - Ann Greenberg
Johannes Ernst wrote a great post about Facebook's power over our friends to connect to us. Sure, startups experiment all the time. First of all, there are rules over human subjects in scientific testing, which Facebook didn't follow. Secondly, whether true or not, the expectation for most people is that Facebook is a means of communication, not an edited publication. - Ben Werdmuller
yeah, its like that whole thing a while back when youtube decided not to take some video down that angered muslims. Even after the US govt asked them nicely to take it down they didnt. - Chris Hale
weird screeches may be crows on telegraph poles here - Kevin Marks
i see both these types of events as demonstrations of what what type of power corporations have that is outside of govt control - Chris Hale
experiments is probably not the right word - Tina Chase Gillmor
There's a huge difference between Fox News - a media company - manipulating the emotions of the viewer. Facebook presents itself as a two-way conduit between people. - Ben Werdmuller
involuntary probing? - Chris Hale
experiments is what we call it - Kevin Marks
I agree with Dan. - Ann Greenberg
A/B testing - Kevin Marks
Even on websites marketers are doing A/B testing and people don't know that they're seeing a different version of the page than their neighbor. - Josh Bradshaw
I think it's pretty awesome that we can get our mind altered without all of the previous side-effects we experienced in the 60's - Charlie Isaacs
I don't think it's just profiling - thought of it as genuine research to see to what extent the service influences us. - Laura Norvig
Profiling us, but they need to make that very clear. I do not think that is clear to average users. The issue is the algorithm applied unequally. - Ann Greenberg
well a/b testing is totally fine but i think given the fact that facebook is a very unique platform that can spark real actions in real life the ramifications for facebook doing a/b tests could have more real costs and implications than maybe a lot of other companies - Chris Hale
So let's ask, what if you only showed Democrats other Democrat's views? Without telling them... - Ann Greenberg
I'm not hearing robert - Kevin Marks
Robert Scoble, I almost think this topic dovetails nicely with that whole thing with "forget me" in google. That has other ramifications like Google being forced delete facts about people who have requested to be forgotten. It all has to do with corporations power over our perception of truth and reality - Chris Hale
I have no audio - Kevin Marks
I'm not that concerned personally. And at a rational level, disclosure would kill the ability to do the experiment because users who know would behave differently - Keith Teare
But Robert, monitoring is different than manipulating - Ann Greenberg
Ill call you back - Tina Chase Gillmor
Sentiment analysis is different than causing sentiment - Ann Greenberg
This whole topic is really interesting to me because I had an awesome idea for a movie based on this topic - Chris Hale
No because they are manipulating what you are being exposed to - Ann Greenberg
I have no sound at all on the computer I may need to reboout - Kevin Marks
Ann - the who news stream is filtered for you anyway - Keith Teare
whole - Keith Teare
Keith T. I agree with what you are saying, its definitely one reason i don't bother with watching the news - Chris Hale
Kevin I will call you back when i think reboot time is over - Tina Chase Gillmor
Is a filtered news stream where you don't control the algorithm more intrinsically desirable than one you curate yourself? - Ben Werdmuller
On Facebook they give uses an ability to filter by time or popularity. That's what a user thinks are their choice on the filter. If its something else, there isn't a notice and that's what's disturbing (average) users. - Ann Greenberg
weird, skype crashed the sound driver - Kevin Marks
kevin can you hear now? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think skype was updating itself and ate the sound - Kevin Marks
Are we going to see lawsuits for situations where folks with more negative feeds went too negative and committed crimes or suicide or experienced emotional damages? - Josh Bradshaw
I can hear now - Kevin Marks
we had some issues with it today with G3 gals before the show started - Tina Chase Gillmor
Interesting - does curating the feed affect who's responsible for its content? - Ben Werdmuller
Okay, so then there is a progressive algoritm that gets to know you better, but that's different than saying okay, let's now adjust the algorithm based on specific sentiments. Goebbles did this too in essence when he (literally) locked Germans inside the movie theater and forced them to watch the newsreels. - Ann Greenberg
So, does a machine have a POV? - Ann Greenberg
Ann: Facebook has a POV: make you use it more. :-) - Robert Scoble
creative differences? - Tina Chase Gillmor
crows! ha, ha - Tina Chase Gillmor
there is debate about that ben - Kevin Marks

Charlie... Im surprised. And I liked G3 earlier today too - Tina Chase Gillmor
twitter just seems so much better when the users lead it's development organically. - Laura Norvig
We talked about this on G3 a few weeks ago. interesting - Tina Chase Gillmor

Chris... yeah - Tina Chase Gillmor

Not often. - Robert Scoble
so you have to be talking to yourself ... - Laura Norvig

is he? He's blocked me (as has pmarca) - Kevin Marks
He is. Big photos with text in front of them. - Ben Werdmuller
oh, right. yes missing the point a little - Kevin Marks
Marc Andreessen unfollowed me - Kevin Marks
Because of live-tweeting? That would be ironic - Ben Werdmuller
no, because I called him out about VCs not funding women - Kevin Marks
Ugh. That's a conversation to engage in, not block yourself away from. Sorry. - Ben Werdmuller

Both IFTTT and Zapier are awesome and they're adding more and more channels. They are both going to be huge. I'm using them to rapidly prototype IoT for enterprise companies. - Charlie Isaacs
Chris, have been wondering what Zapier is. It's offered integrated with our Hubspot instance but haven't had a chance to use it. - Laura Norvig
my big problem right now for IFTTT is that I'd like to purchase the ability to set the frequency that it checks and does certain services - Chris Hale
and it really makes me mad they don't offer this , id pay for it if they did - Chris Hale
Ann - thank you. Started it years ago and only ever used it for myself - Keith Teare
Zapier is basically a platform that allows you to mash up different services - Chris Hale
you probably should use Heroku for that +Chris :) - Charlie Isaacs
Thanks for the shout out steve! - Chris Hale
it defaults to 15 minutes on IFTTT - Chris Hale
and for realistic home automation or other things 15 minutes is super lame - Chris Hale

My Fitbit just took an unintended bath. I spilled on myself, so I through my shorts in the wash and completely forgot that the fitbit had been in my pocket until they had been underwater for about 4 or 5 minutes. It seems to be working fine, but it's hanging out in a bag of rice just to be sure.
Of course, I didn't stuff the bag with rice because I wanted to still be able to put it in my pocket since it's working, but there's rice. - Katy S

hold up. the CDC says 4 drinks for a woman "in a single bout" is binge drinking? and 8 drinks in a week for a woman is "chronic alcohol consumption"? uh.... uh-oh.
Well, that's an average (and targeted at the average height/weight for women.) Even so, someone having a glass and a half of wine with dinner every night would fall afoul of that, even though that's not all that uncommon or likely to get someone all that intoxicated. - Jennifer Dittrich
Awesome, apparently 1 SAM = 3 alcoholic women some weeks. That math seems about right. Wait, what? - SAM
What's a 'bout'? Not that it matters, since I'm probably equal to 1 SAM anyway. - Anika
