Creeper Rap - Dan Bull - 1 HOUR VERSION
Play
Is this kid friendly? Watched a few minutes - so funny! - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Heh, this one was actually favorited by my son, not me. I generally keep half an eye on what he watches on YouTube -- it's all Minecraft and LEGO videos. Some have borderline bad language. He and his sister sing the parody songs more than the original sometimes. - Stephen Mack
Oh, it is so time for an S and W meetup. Wade has this one Minecraft Youtuber he is obsessed with. https://www.youtube.com/user... - Laura Norvig
Catchy tune (tune, tune). - Ken Morley
Steve Gillmor
GIllmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PT participate at http://www.ustream.tv/gillmor...
hi everyone. hope your Good Friday is indeed a good one! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Does Good Friday have something to do w/Lent? Or are they completely unrelated? - J.C. Bouvier
lent ends on Easter Sunday - Kevin Marks
Right, boulder gets rolled, and then it's a party...now I remember... - J.C. Bouvier
it's all a little fuzzy for me - Tina Chase Gillmor
Oh no, Catechism class! - Tom Guarriello
starting to get everyone up on Skype - Tina Chase Gillmor
...and don't forget.... it's still Passover - Tina Chase Gillmor
Has it started? - Ian Waring
and today Steve is going to crab about the fact that I changed his camera position. I told him i will put it back where it was if he really doesn't like it after today - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm in Malta today, so my brain and my watch are out of sync... - Ian Waring
I was tweeting scripture at the pope earlier - Kevin Marks
ian - not yet - Keith Teare
let me know if you need the Jewish Catholic to add some value to your Easter discussion (me) - Charlie Isaacs
That's serious Catechism class, Kevin! Be careful, he's a Jesuit! - Tom Guarriello
I love that test card, takes me back to my childhood when you waited for TV to start with bated breath! - SImonB
Thank you Keith. Religious lot doing Good Friday marches into Church here... - Ian Waring
I see Tina's forehead :) - Charlie Isaacs
Now that's what Keith calls music - Kevin Marks
Yay! Full crew, but watch out for that Bing traitor! - Ian Waring
Makes sense to FB but does it make sense to users? - Tom Guarriello
I have a Google app on iOS - Kevin Marks
and on android, actually - Kevin Marks
Is this the preparation towards the Facebook Mobile - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Facebook needs to leverage its current user base to expand into more businesses that will diversify its revenue streams. Social platforms have a limited potential for generating revenue and could lose its users to a new app or platform in the future. - Rob Greenlee
Google Voice is now annoying me by telling me every time someone adds me to a circle. Is that in an effort to get me to delete the Voice app from my phone? Or a desperate attempt to get me to hit + pages? Or both? - J.C. Bouvier
WhatsApp, Instagram and other features - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm totally mad a Steve right now. He is refusing to look at the upper part of his screen. I just know I'm going to be repositioning the camera back where it was - Tina Chase Gillmor
Borthwick's thing on homescreen icons may have made zuck think about it https://medium.com/on-star... - Kevin Marks
FB needs must be where the younger people is: on the mobile - Carlos Cruz
If the Amazon Mobile is true than Zuckerberg will want a piece of the action - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chromebox i5 cant keep up with HD live stream - switched to quad i7 Mac (makes big difference) - clive boulton
But it's all "person-centric"... that's Tantek's point - Darius Dunlap
it is for one to one; for one to many it's subtler - Kevin Marks
Separate apps work well, but Google's separate apps didn't work well at all, either for the user or behind the scenes. They have to break the silos first with Hangouts before they do anything else. - Kevin Bryan
but if done right, navigating that is also made easier. At least, the potential is there. - Darius Dunlap
I'm more with Kevin. If you go user-centric then you have an explosion of complexity. Users seem comfortable with that at the app level. (2 years ago I wouldn't have agreed...) - Ian McGee
Mobile Apps are the new TV Channels - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Jillian York was interesting on this: http://jilliancyork.com/2014... - Kevin Marks
Google's problem: Everyone was on Google, but nobody could see each other in chat. By Google unifying under Hangouts (and Google+), at least people can find each other now across Google services. - Kevin Bryan
Kevin's point about modalities of communication is very valid, but I'd say apps are artificial constructs, and the fragmentation they create is painful. - SImonB
Apps, Channels, Text vs. Voice.. whatever. The important questions is "how do I best reach this person", and present that in a user-centric set of choices. - Darius Dunlap
I am not convinced people (consumers) love apps, I think corporates love apps! They're a strong channel,and are rapidly becoming brand identity. But that doesn't help consumers. - SImonB
Microsoft tried with Windows Phone to create app integrated "People Hubs" that pulled the data from a variety of apps into one user experience. They are now shutting that down with WP 8.1. - Rob Greenlee
The problem with unbundling Facebook's Services is that you eventually will have Facebook Lite - Moe Glitz from iPhone
wow, all-star cast today https://twitter.com/charlie... - Charlie Isaacs
Jennifer Ehle summed it up: "I know nothing of Facebook. Never been there. I've seen a page of it and it gives me that Microsoft sleepy feeling in my brain." https://twitter.com/jennife... - Kevin Marks
Many Apps & Devices. One User Data Profile http://www.deconstructed.io/ - clive boulton
Does anyone else use the "New YouTube video" notifications feature in their notifications bar? I've had it for a long time. Very useful. - Kevin Bryan
interesting question is "why" the Windows Phone idea that's similar is going away. - Darius Dunlap
That it IS going away doesn't really say much. Microsoft has a long history of doing amazing things that for one reason or another never catch on. - Darius Dunlap
Google's Services have always been separate, which is why their Apps are easy to sell separate. Facebook is another thing. If the Facebook Wall becomes a separate App, will the Facebook Wall come crumbling down - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Interesting conversation about "user app churn" behavior on this week's episode of The Prompt http://5by5.tv/prompt/44 - Tom Guarriello
Apps are oriented to user needs, so I think they will stay for long (unless there is a real working assistant like siri that launch apps/services). On the other hand, apps could use backend services - an unified ID could be a good example). - Carlos Cruz
Most mobile users don't really use that many apps on a regular basis. It is like what happened with the web. Early on people visited a lot of different websites, then pulled back to just a few. Same is happening with Apps now. - Rob Greenlee
the diversification of apps has to be well beyond social networks apps directly.. but apps that take advantage of the social network.. like health apps.. etc. - Michael Roberts
camlistore/deconstructed.io use case? - clive boulton
++ Michael Roberts - Darius Dunlap
Paper is the wall as a separate app, Moe - Kevin Marks
just played with a Galaxy S 5, it's awesome - Da
Think Paper will eventually fold Kevin, they should have brought Flipboard - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Enterprise wants to unbundle identity from apps, consumers don't. - clive boulton
Moe: I agree - Keith Teare
missing John Taschek's enterprisey pov - clive boulton
@Moe, @Keith - Paper is by far the better experience, I see it as the iPhone of Facebook apps, where the stock Facebook app is more the Android volume user play...Paper is for people w/a higher gross income...Facebook is for the rest of their users. - J.C. Bouvier
should I talk about fragmentions? http://epeus.blogspot.com/2014... - Kevin Marks
give it a try Kevin - Tina Chase Gillmor
Could be true J.C. But Facebook will need to sell it hard. Perhaps inside a Facebook Mobile it will gain in popularity - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Andreessen blocked me on Twitter - Kevin Marks
Paper is facing the same challenge as Medium, which I don't think will ever be large - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Whoa, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
And how were those people starting that company supporting themselves. - Darius Dunlap
my response to that thread was to link this old post: http://epeus.blogspot.com/2006... - Kevin Marks
I am someone who has a few bootstrapped startups and I believe you can do a startup without spending a bunch of money, it takes money to get visibility though - Chris Hale
Don't hate on twinkies Steve - Chris Hale
back to the drawing board with the camera placement. Honestly, it's just not right and it's my fault. will try again - Tina Chase Gillmor
There is some stuff that used to be VERY hard, but which has now become free to experiment, and inexpensive to scale. - Darius Dunlap
Agree with Darius - Chris Hale
Well Steve's put his finger on it: innovative in the consumer space. There's way too much variations on the same old social media theme, why fund that unless there's proven revenue? - SImonB
Yep, SimonB, and nobody seems to have confidence that they can pick winners... so they wait. They sit out until there is evidence. - Darius Dunlap
Can Danny talk about Google's pay per click declines on the Desktop and Yahoo's plan to be the default Search player on the iPhone - Moe Glitz from iPhone
blocking often just too much flow :) - clive boulton
Windows is dead zzzz - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I agree that B2B will be more difficult to address to kickstarter entrepreneurs. - Carlos Cruz
Also, the end market is fundamentally more conservative... so Breakouts take a LONG time to ramp up. - Darius Dunlap
Moe, It is hard to count Windows out completely in the mobile/tablet and PC space. Clearly, MS is still an OS that a billion of people still use today. - Rob Greenlee
@Keith, do you ahve an example of a kick tag in Instagram? That's an @ symbol for Twitter or some other for say Facebook? - J.C. Bouvier
thanks Steve / thanks Dan / thanks Semil -- balancing enterprisy pov - clive boulton
Apparently Hookers are using AirBnb for Services in some cities - Moe Glitz from iPhone
"lets make our own startup with Hookers and Blow" - Kevin Marks
I wonder what the enterprise developer program growth is like... the companies building apps for internal-only use... I've seen some very interesting stuff, but I wonder if it's really a "thing" yet. - Darius Dunlap
Hell of a branding proposition, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
"carburetors not ferraris" -- now I get it! - clive boulton
Gnip, Datasift, Radian6 Bing - Kevin Marks
with GNIP Twitter had partial control before and now they have complete control - Charlie Isaacs
Radian6 = Saleforce yah? - J.C. Bouvier
yes - Kevin Marks
it's also way to collect more revenue -- GNIP makes money - Charlie Isaacs
yeah, Charlie Isaacs, I think that's what Kevin was saying... Twitter already has the firehose, but these are people who have experience turning that into useful and profitable products. - Darius Dunlap
You can't trust anything coming out of Twitter unless you go directly to the firehose yourself or go to GNIP and get it from them, and Twitter severely limits the number of vendors who can get to the firehose - Charlie Isaacs
Will Twitter work with Creative Agencies, unlike Google which uses them - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Enterprise can't do "Hookers and Blow" or is that where the puck is? - clive boulton
Enterprise is ALL about "hookers and Blow". - Darius Dunlap
Oh, and Golf. - Darius Dunlap
Show name "slightly unnatural acts"? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Isn't that an Oracle thing? - Kevin Marks
better than what clive just said Tina :) - Charlie Isaacs
Lol. Tina - Darius Dunlap
Google should buy Datasift and perhaps they can build a Fire Engine - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Between "hookers and blow" and "slightly unnatural acts" it may be time to re-rate the show.... - Ian McGee
I missed how "hookers and blow" happened. Geez, when I'm not looking... - Tina Chase Gillmor
Gillmor GangBang - Moe Glitz from iPhone
now you're talking -- connected hardware! - Charlie Isaacs
Larry Ellison makes sure no hookers and blow at big O. - clive boulton
connected hardware I agree - Michael Roberts
"When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go downtown" - Kevin Marks
Stuff people are noodling on. That's how everything interesting starts. - Darius Dunlap
wearables - Da
this friendfeed thing is turning into pornchat or whatever that thing was that I caught my son on the other day - Charlie Isaacs
I'm waiting for the whole space around connect hardware apps.. that bring intelligence to consumers. - Michael Roberts
Wait, are we talking about "hookers and blow" again?? - Tom Guarriello
Ha ha. - J.C. Bouvier
I think home automation and seemless authentication are spaces that are where a lot of interesting things are happening - Chris Hale
I'm quoting Petula Clark lyrics - Kevin Marks
"The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go ...." - Tina Chase Gillmor
Some of us have those lyrics embedded in our unconscious... - Tom Guarriello
Wearables and Connectables are the future. Web 3.0 is here - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Ive been noodling on my own home automation platform and have had pretty good success with getting everything connected and now I am able to control it via voice - Chris Hale
When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go, downtown - Charlie Isaacs
another area is the sharing economy.. I wonder if there will be an amazon for sharing stuff.. the big 'rent' it. - Michael Roberts
Sing Kevin - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Sunday delivery by Amazon, too. Plus, they now send me texts when things get delivered. - Tom Guarriello
we were really surprised to get a package at 9:50pm - Tina Chase Gillmor
you don't want me singing Petula Clark. Pink Floyd maybe - Kevin Marks
My neighbor's angry at me because I shot down his delivery drone down and screwed up his wife's birthday gift - Charlie Isaacs
So ya, think, might like to... goto the show! - Darius Dunlap
Kevin.... I think you should actually sing on the show... so when I cut to you, please go for it! - Tina Chase Gillmor
my singing is bset kept in private - Kevin Marks
Brilliant Idea. Employ handicapped people as drone drivers! - Chris Hale
I've got all the Floyd lyrics right here, in case you need support. ;-) - Darius Dunlap
thats a philanthropic idea where everyone wins - Chris Hale
hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way - Kevin Marks
why deliver when can 3D print - Da
we could make a Gillmor Gang Choir - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'd love to see gillmor gang bring someone in from beyond silicon valley.. like India.. or South Africa.. that might be good check for the Silicon Valley centric thinking.. - Michael Roberts
I used to code that in html - Tina Chase Gillmor
Drones should be use for the good things and not for war! - Carlos Cruz
way back when - Tina Chase Gillmor
Medium sor of does this... - Darius Dunlap
I like that a lot - Tina Chase Gillmor
"sort of" - Darius Dunlap
pretty awesome that the SpaceX Falcon9 lifted off a while ago - Charlie Isaacs
I was visiting Instructables yesterday - they have some insane 3D printers - Kevin Marks
that's an excellent idea, kevin - Tom Guarriello
Can Kevin sing "The Great Gig In The Sky" - Moe Glitz from iPhone
but this new thing is so much more interesting... connecting across systems. - Darius Dunlap
No, Moe - Kevin Marks
I can do Pulp's Common People - Kevin Marks
we all know your code - Michael Roberts
android can keep screen on if plugged in - Kevin Marks
yes it is, steve - Tom Guarriello
Yep. It'll only turn off when you click the button, or flip the smart cover shut - Darius Dunlap
That's why I wasn't in the chatroom; I was watching on iPad. - Francine Hardaway
Ustream has a chat available but it doesn't store the chats... and that's a problem - Tina Chase Gillmor
Everything.me is COOL http://bit.ly/i8plrB - Nir Ben Yona
i use Screen On app to keep my screen on - Da
has anyone done an analysis of how many apps people can keep up with... kinda like the 150 friends.. limit. - Michael Roberts
remove the lock screen on iOS will decrease the level of data encryption on the device - Carlos Cruz
i'm gonna get a different tripod that is more flexible - Tina Chase Gillmor
Carburetors don't have theme music, Ferraris do? https://soundcloud.com/adamsin... - clive boulton
Could we please get off FF? - Francine Hardaway
@Francine Hardaway Agreed! FriendFeed is indeed dead. When can we bury the casket and move on to something new? - Kevin Bryan
francine, please give me an alternative - Tina Chase Gillmor
yammer for GIllmor Gang? - Francine Hardaway
I love IFTTT - Francine Hardaway
ifttt rocks - Charlie Isaacs
doesn't save the chat to a page - Tina Chase Gillmor
What about IRC, the olf favorite - Francine Hardaway
I think steve is totally right.. re: notifications. he's been making the same point for a while. - Michael Roberts
it's a sunshade - Kevin Marks
oh hai! you're still here! - Laura Norvig
IRC is nice - Kevin Marks
IRC would be good. Google+ page would be nice too. - Kevin Bryan
Chatter FTW :) and it's connected to IFTTT - Charlie Isaacs
IRC and surrounding tools can do all that, but it's still prettty geeky and difficult to get started. - Darius Dunlap
should I write a web app for gilmor gang to help deal with chat? - Chris Hale
yes Chris - Francine Hardaway
FF still better than G+ chat (UI too verbose) - clive boulton
Chris Hale please talk to me - Tina Chase Gillmor
I remember all of that - Francine Hardaway
lots of other podcasts use irc, but it's a PITA - Tom Guarriello
OK, somebody write an app for us - Francine Hardaway
Francine I think IRC is really good for techs.. but non-techs.. what else exists? - Michael Roberts
Samsung Gear Fit notifications look pretty cool - Da
I can probably write a better chat in 24 hrs than this crappy FF chat - Chris Hale

For $3B, he gets Steve in the deal. - Darius Dunlap
FireChat - Kevin Marks
it used to work great when the chat was embedded right next to the video. - Laura Norvig
What's the limit for a What'sApp group? - Francine Hardaway
GangSpeak - Tina Chase Gillmor
Or we use GroupMe for SXSW - Francine Hardaway
Hangouts - Kevin Marks
Hangouts could work - Francine Hardaway
hangouts has so many problems that is solved by newtek - Michael Roberts
Hangouts would be good. - Kevin Bryan
Pardon? - Francine Hardaway
Chris Hale - friend request me on FB if you use it - Tina Chase Gillmor
You missed the early chat about hookers and blow, Francine - Tom Guarriello

Screw you, buzzfeed & upworthy. How do you know what I won’t believe?
Here's a start: Don't believe that buzzfeed or upworthy are worth visiting. You can probably add Business Insider and HuffPo to that list. - Walt Crawford
You won't believe what Upworthy and Buzzfeed think you won't believe. Click now to find out! - Laura Norvig
^^+10 What a weird old trick that is. - Walt Crawford
we're all going to die! news at 11! (at 11: the average mortality rate is now...) - Christina Pikas
The headlines they make up next will restore your faith in humanity. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
ALL NATURAL headline ingredients! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Todd Hoff
The first Silicon Valley episode was pretty funny. Enough to watch it again at least. Love all the make the world better sarcasm. There's a lot of insuferability to mine for the show.
I don't get HBO but my friend showed me it is on their youtube channel, can't wait to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Laura Norvig
Second episode was still pretty good, though not as funny. I wonder how general the audience is for this? It's fairly technical and I might think it boring for most people. - Todd Hoff
Saw the first episode last night. I love it - agree, "change the world," "disrupting digital media," "making a difference" was some of the funniest stuff. But yeah, not sure this will resonate with the normals. - Laura Norvig

The new pulse of digital music - http://news.ubc.ca/2014...
The new pulse of digital music
"Besides creating their powerful music, the students have invented a series of interfaces and musical gadgets. The first is the app sensorUDP, which transforms musicians’ smartphones into motion sensors. Available in the Android app store and compatible with iPhones, it allows performers to layer up to eight programmable sounds and modify them by moving their phone. Music student Pieteke MacMahon modified the app to create an iPhone Piano, which she plays on her wrist, thanks to a mount created by engineering classmates. As she moves her hands up, the piano notes go up in pitch. When she drops her hands, the sound gets lower, and a delay effect increases if her palm faces up. “Audiences love how intuitive it is,” says the composition major. “It creates music in a way that really makes sense to people, and it looks pretty cool onstage.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
This reminds me of the stuff Interval Research was doing in the late '90s (movement to create sound, sound to create visuals, etc.) - Laura Norvig
I want to put these things on the dogs and see what kind of music they make :-) - Todd Hoff
this is kewl - Peter Dawson
Laura Norvig
We're watching the eclipse right from my bedroom window. I let Wade stay up.
He just fell asleep. But he saw a good chunk of it. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Damn, clouds/fog just rolled in. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

I am going to make myself go to Target this afternoon over my lunch break because we need more non-spilly sippy cups. Please tell me something frivolous I could get there for me for $10-15 that will cheer me up.
cute socks? - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
boxed wine - kendrak
a t-shirt in an outrageous color - Catherine Pellegrino
Easter candy - Catherine Pellegrino
Bottle of wine :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
A place mat and plastic flatware and dish for lunches at work. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I totally misread gel pens and wondered when Target started selling sex toys... - WebGoddess
Bouquet of flowers. - Kirsten
Bunny ears. - Yvonne from FFHound!
If I could get a decent sex toy in that price range anywhere I'd be astounded. :) - laura x
"decent sex toy" seems positively oxymoronic. - DJF
I was going to go now, but all the other senior staff have left the building, which makes me feel I should stay. - laura x
You guys, I suck at frivolity. I bought sippy cups, two glass canisters for food storage, envelopes, and a mop. - laura x
Were they frivolous envelopes? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. #10 safety. - laura x
was it a fancy mop? - ellbeecee
It was the best of a lot of bad options. I really miss my old mop that I bought at the Container Store years ago and foolishly left with my mother. - laura x
Swiffer. - Laura Norvig
I refuse to buy Swiffers because I am obnoxious that way. - laura x
boxed wine is a necessity. my new thing is placemats. - kendrak
I hate Swiffers. I thought it left my floor less clean than when I started. - ellbeecee
the only thing left that we haven't discussed are the glass canisters. do they have frivolous lids? - Marie
No. They're about the most frivolous things on the list, since I could go on storing the granola in a plastic bag on the counter, I suppose. - laura x
Dang, now I'm reminded that I really need a new mop and am thinking about what my options be other than a Swiffer. I guess an old school one with the wringer bucket? - Derrick
Nah. I'm with ellbee and laura on Swiffers. Good old sponge mops. Too bad Target discontinued the snazzy architect-designed spongemop and its refills (a couple years back); none of the newer ones work as well. (Can't remember the designer's name--he did dozens of household things for Target, but now designs for JCPenney, as a sideline.) - Walt Crawford
I used to mop my kitchen floor with cloth diapers and soapy water and then rinse with plain hot water or maybe hot water w/ a splash of vinegar. Way better than Swiffer, but my knees can't take it and it takes about five times as long and uses more water. - Laura Norvig
I have this thing by Libman that's like a Swiffer WetJet but with reusable pads and a refillable canister and it is my BEST FRIEND EVER. I think Rubbermaid makes one too. - Catherine Pellegrino
yup, i have the rubbermaid one and it is great too. it's has reusable pads, including one that you can use dry with fringy stuff on it to pick up stuff. ETA: http://www.rubbermaid.com/categor... - ~Courtney F
Close enough; I think mine's an earlier generation, but it's the same principle. - Catherine Pellegrino
WebGoddess - Some Target stores do sell the Trojan sex toys (or, so I'm told). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Gotcha. Gonna swing by the hardware store after work. :) - Derrick
Target has some DVDs for $13 or less this week. That might have added to the frivolity. http://www.target.com/sb... - The Lunatic Ur Lookin 4
i use a libman sponge mop and alternate that with swiffer wet and then sometimes just a wipe under my foot and skate around a bit... and my floors are still pretty dirty - Christina Pikas
I never watch DVDs, sadly. [ETA: Except of course for Stop Making Sense, which we watch daily.] - laura x
1. I like placemats for the cat food dishes. 2. Does anyone else think "libraryland" when they use their LibMan thingie? I have a LibMan scrubbie and every time I see it, I want to ask you all that. :-) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I haven't watched "Stop Making Sense" in years. I should dig that out & see if my VCR still works. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Beer festival update : we might be in love w this guy named Joel. Might.
For real though. Not even a drunk think. He's a chemical engineer and we like all the same bands. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
He showed up to the after party. Uh oh. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
He's buying me a beer. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
i totally read that as "He's buying me a laser." - Big Joe Silence
If he buys you a laser, then it's love. - Jason P
or at least high-test lust. - Big Joe Silence
Ahhh Beer Festival Love... - Me
I got his number. And it's Joe, not Joel. He's from baton rouge. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Ok. I want points for not attacking the dude. The restraint I exhibited is epic. Epic restraint! - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Ima text him though. Because. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Wait, should I text him? - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
Well, I texted him. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
oh my. this thread is cracking me up this morning! - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
You two need to go out and watch the lunar eclipse tonight. - Joe
I thought you were going to say, "He's a chemical engineer and we like all the same bonds." *ba-dum-tshh* - Laura Norvig
Christina Pikas
i'm gonna make RR's head blow off: posting on code4lib about how his faculty want to use researchgate instead of the repository
i didn't post, i read a post. - Christina Pikas
Head not blown. Repo UI still sucks. - RepoRat
they want to shut down the repository and use research gate instead? oh. well i'll try harder next time :) - Christina Pikas
Open is open. Whether IRs are a useful way toward open is a discussion worth having. So is whether we can leave open to putatively for-profit entities, which ResearchGate is. - RepoRat
Totally unsurprised. It's both the usability and the sociability of ResearchGate. The problem which faculty and grad students don't realise is copyright/permissions (lots of publishers allow pre/postprint on IRs but not elsewhere, and RG is an elsewhere), but they also don't care much about it either. - Deborah Fitchett
I can't believe there isn't a lawsuit against RG in the offing. They better do it quick, or it'll have enough of an installbase to really cause an insurrection. - RepoRat
What has been written so far about RG and OA? Looking for some good analysis and opinion pieces. Our researchers want to know if they should be on RG (we aren't an academic institution). They say their colleagues at other orgs are telling them, "oh, my paper is up at RG." I want to educate them about the processes of self-archiving if they don't already know about it, but I know RG is going to come up as well. - Laura Norvig

Ok, I'll tell bad jokes while you're stalling for time. +Kevin, What do you get if you cross a woodpecker with a carrier pigeon? A bird who knocks before delivering its message. - Charlie Isaacs
Heartbleed Explaination - http://www.vox.com/cards... - Murray Macdonald
lovely NSA - clive boulton
This is too depressing - Francine Hardaway
I love that Kevin's shirt matches his umbrella hat - Charlie Isaacs
It's very exploitable - there was a nice demo that connected to Yahoo.com and grabbed passwords. - Simon Tennant
NSA should share exploits, not exploit them - clive boulton
everyone seeing the stream fine? - Tina Chase Gillmor
looks great, Tina - Tom Guarriello

what would you do in twitter's CEO role @Dan ? - flyinthesoup
Twitter's new design too alike Facebook for me http://venturebeat.com/2014... - clive boulton
There are too many notifications coming in all the time - Francine Hardaway
No safari support? - Murray Macdonald
I'm sure Twitter has been listening to the Gang. We've been talking about the importance of notifications for some time now. Hopefully that will handle the feature carefully - Tina Chase Gillmor
Twitter user statistics: Most People On Twitter Don't Actually Tweet http://read.bi/1gSopwz - Nir Ben Yona
Google+ is easier to filter via default circle and circle notifcations - clive boulton
Will be interesting to see if people still stick with FB after all the newstream changes going on - christina sponselli
Hiya - is it just me - video very intermittent - heard 30 secs of Kevin Marks only so far... - Ian Waring
If it defaults to who I follow, that's 1600 people - Francine Hardaway
That's more people than I want to be notified about - Francine Hardaway
I'm hearing everything Ian - Charlie Isaacs
Stream seems strong here on our end, Ian - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't see settings for mobile notifications on the web, just email - Kevin Marks
FB social graph is too social. I want information. Not data from someone I went to school with. - clive boulton
Thank you - nought here. Will trying switching it off and on again (tip of the hat to the IT Crowd) - Ian Waring
I didn't know Robert had a normal world :=-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I hardly ever use Twitter's standard interface on the Web, I use Tweetdeck. Mostly use Twitter on iPad and iPhone. - Alex de Soto
Threat was enough - i'm getting Scoble loud and clear now - Ian Waring
nobody tell Robert there's a guy behind him photobombing - Charlie Isaacs
Same here, I use Twitter plenty, but I never use the website. - Michael Mahemoff
Wrote this a long time ago about how Twitter will have challenges monetizing ... https://www.facebook.com/photo... - Chien-Yu Lin
mobile expects me to add a phone number - Kevin Marks
kevin - can you post the link - Keith Teare
nice woodpecker, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
the link in https://blog.twitter.com/2014... just goes to settings - Kevin Marks
One way to control noise for Twitter is to promote the ability for tracking back to root sources and filtering away all "met too" posts that do not include others you follow. That is, no one needs 70 people pointing back to the same ABC story - but I do want to see what the people I follow comment on it. - Chien-Yu Lin
@Keith, totally w/you...about her rolodex... - J.C. Bouvier
She can play the piano during board cocktail hours. - Alex de Soto
Mozilla ... I know that half The Board resigned, but did any rank and file resign? - Chien-Yu Lin
Here's what Marc Benioff tweeted about Dropbox: "Zuckerberg is wondering if he should buy Dropbox for $30B as we watches @drewhouston announce a messaging service" http://bit.ly/1gSoPmv - Nir Ben Yona
She's for a sure a smart woman who was simply was miscast in a fugly White House...and I'm not apologist btw...and she wouldn't be on any list of board members of any length that I would make...but I can't imagine she's dead weight. - J.C. Bouvier
It sends wrong signals, but he can't lead the company if the employees hate him - Francine Hardaway
you're crazy, there's no such thing "his employees" in mozilla @robert - flyinthesoup
+1 Francine - Tom Guarriello
Eich resigned - Kevin Marks
Public opinion matters when you are a leader. If your troops won't follow, regardless of the reason, you're unable to lead. - Murray Macdonald
Chien: the troops threatened to quit with a letter to the board. - Robert Scoble
Marc Benioff went on to tweet: Amazing new @carouselapp and Harmony from @drewhouston demonstrates how far behind Apple's photo and file apps are! - clive boulton
that's totally right Murray - Tina Chase Gillmor
Had a Twitter experience that I wanted to bottle a couple of weeks ago - a conversation between a few folks talking around a virtual water cooler re: Facebook and Oculus. I'd love a newspaper made out of slithers like that. - Ian Waring
The CEO carries the vision for the company. He's the leader. Not effective. - Francine Hardaway
thats what storify is for - Kevin Marks
"troops" ? stop militarizing your thoughts. you're taking the wrong model - flyinthesoup
Storify... off looking - thanks - Ian Waring
we don't need no CEO for a new generation community based company. - flyinthesoup
The dangerous precedent that he would have set had he remained would not be about his leadership skills, but rather what message he could have create in right-to-work states where employees effective have no right to work. If minorities think that it is difficult to work in an environment such as California - which is very liberal - imagine a CEO of a company in a Red State. - Chien-Yu Lin
Roberts right, he didn't want to handle the situation - clive boulton
i don't take Eich as a leader either, he's a very deep nerd - flyinthesoup
Leadership principles were pioneered by military. Ever read Sun Tzu? - Murray Macdonald
he's a tech leader. he and Mitchell have been a good team - Kevin Marks
Scoble: Thanks - Chien-Yu Lin
+100 @Storify, use it all the time... http://g.ifaw.org/1lw98cf - J.C. Bouvier
So is Eich on the spectrum? - Francine Hardaway
Go to Glassdoor. There are a lot of horrible leaders (as per their employees opinions and ratings), but Wall Street loves them and it is a bad economy for a lot of companies, industries. - Chien-Yu Lin
Francine: I don't know that for a fact but I would not be shocked. - Robert Scoble
Bill Gates is often described as having Aspergers. He demonstrates many symptoms. - Murray Macdonald
Carly Fiorina at HP comes to mind.... - Alex de Soto
Murray: yes. - Robert Scoble
My son has Aspergers. He's amazingly smart, just eccentric. - Murray Macdonald
Bill has never admitted that. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina: no, he isn't as far along the spectrum as Bram Cohen. - Robert Scoble
Does anyone know if Mailbox supports Exchange yet? - J.C. Bouvier
Most adults with Aspergers are un-diagnosed. There's no blood-test. It's a subjective diagnosis. - Murray Macdonald
@Semil, what dou you mean about the transition from platform to services ? - flyinthesoup
A classmate of my daughter's is on the autism spectrum. She says he's one of the smartest people she knows. There are a ton of things that freak him out though but even so, he has made great strides over the years being connected to other students. All the kids are very protective of him. It has been a great experience for all - Tina Chase Gillmor
12 million downloads for Office for iPad ... - Chien-Yu Lin
How about the high-frequency trading revelations ala Flash Boys? Wall St. High Frequency Traders are scamming clients by having a few milliseconds lead time to trade against them. The exchanges are selling them the upstream access. - Murray Macdonald
file sharing will disappear as paper will one day - flyinthesoup
Dan's chin keeps getting closer to the bottom of the screen ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
we're printing more paper than ever before - Ludwig Ederle
"Microsoft’s top lawyer on Thursday said the company’s cloud computing services had met Europe’s stringent data protection rules — the only company so far to receive such approval — and he used the news as a way to woo potential new customers." - NYT - Alex de Soto
Does OneNote have a web clipper like Evernote? - Tom Guarriello
wait till you start eating paper... - flyinthesoup
at macdonalds you already do... - flyinthesoup
I like Evernote more than DropBox - Francine Hardaway
I placed my OneDrive folder in a DropBox folder for easier access across apps. - Alex de Soto
I like google drive - Kevin Marks
Both Evernote and Dropbox are now essential for me - Tom Guarriello
what other product or company could go from 0 to millions of new sign-ups in a few days... the Office for iPad strategy was a good move - Charlie Isaacs
Murray, I'm reading that book now - Francine Hardaway
Stability vs. Innovation - Chien-Yu Lin
Deconstructed gets identity out of the way, with Dropbox be killer http://www.deconstructed.io/ - clive boulton
Love Evernote but it has splintered its attention into so many apps! - Alex de Soto
Friend just turned me onto Mega.com - 50GB free...nice interface...and w/MediaFire now offering 1TB for $25/year...DropBox needs to up their free plan. - J.C. Bouvier
Microsoft vs. "Microsoft Killers"; Apple vs. Android. Outside of tech folks, what is more important? - Chien-Yu Lin
As a customer facing imaging application we have to support a bunch of different cloud sources. FB, Flickr, PhotoBucket, Dropbox, Box, Google, Sky Drive, Instagram, Piccasa, etc... - Murray Macdonald
Used to be bring your own device into an Enterprise - now it's Bring your own Cloud - Ian Waring
interesting ian - Kevin Marks
to win the mobile market MS will have to crush their Xbox into a mobile footprint and allow people to game everywhere, anytime -- moving their 43% market share to mobile - Charlie Isaacs
Sync your own Cloud with deconstructed.io - clive boulton
Kindle Fire box is there to undermine Games Consoles... - Ian Waring
When you consider photos, Facebook is the #1 cloud provider. - Murray Macdonald
some noisy bugger is playing basketball in the park and making my sound cut in and out - Kevin Marks
Xioami have a good photo sharing service where you don't need to keep all your pics on the handset - just the latest ones, and the rest are accessible anywhere - Ian Waring
really anywhere? or just using their devices? - Kevin Marks
Using their service, which I think is on their devices. - Ian Waring
Area they monetise on mobile and web - given their hardware is an "at cost" lead... - Ian Waring
How much of mobile is stunted by ceiling established by standard cell phone components? Wifi, location, accelerometer, speaker, phone. - Chien-Yu Lin
Apps exist in a world governed by the web - Francine Hardaway
BTW, Fred Wilson thinks we're now in the blockchain era. Bitcoin - Francine Hardaway
Apps crossing over mobile web ramps fragmentation headaches in enterprise - clive boulton
newsreaders include twiitter + facebook - Kevin Marks
adn email - Kevin Marks
and SMS - Kevin Marks
all those are used to end links around - Kevin Marks
The Amazon apps don't make use of "the Web?" - Alex de Soto
Kevin - the nerve of people playing basketball in the park of all places! - Tina Chase Gillmor
secret posts are on the web - Kevin Marks
PhoneGap makes web apps into app apps. Android Intents allow deep linking between apps. - Murray Macdonald
Looks to me like Secret's DAUs have fallen off sharply since SXSW... - J.C. Bouvier
... and RESTful APIs. - Rob Underwood
HTTP lives long in part because of all the system to system interfaces built of HTTP using RESTful APIs - Rob Underwood
Just gotta say that one of the hottest things right now is the McIlhenny Co. from Avery Island, Louisiana. I know Fred Wilson agrees with me. - Frank Paynter
did you read Sinofsky? Basically saying that he's gald to be free of the office strategy tax - Kevin Marks
bitcoin doesn't need an app to transact inside an iOS app though, like an API to a payment gateway right... - J.C. Bouvier
so no more webapps being invested in, does that mean convergence of mobile and desktop OSes - David Boursin
Akka.js seems poised to extend reactive enterprise notifications into mobile apps. - clive boulton
Sideloading APKs gets around gate-keeping on Android. - Murray Macdonald
Nice step-up in Gillmor Gang production values! - Frank Paynter
as does web based apps - Kevin Marks
like famo.us - Kevin Marks
no one has mentioned that Google Glass will go on general sale next week. Apparently no one cares ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
camera + location are web accesible - Kevin Marks
@Tina, right? - J.C. Bouvier
PhoneGap does all that in a hybrid browser. Beacons and other hardware devices are supported through plug-ins. - Murray Macdonald
and what about Robert's preview of new drones? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Famo.us ;) - clive boulton
Drones are old stuff, and most people who want Glass have it:-) @tina - Francine Hardaway
Tina: oh, cruddy, gotta go get my drone. It's in the car. - Robert Scoble
I think Robert's blue shirt is very slimming! - Frank Paynter
I will go get it. I'll be back in a few minutes. - Robert Scoble
Robert is losing weight - Francine Hardaway
yes, agree with Murray -- can leverage a hybrid approach - Charlie Isaacs
I thought he was. I need to pick his brain for beauty secrets. - Frank Paynter
lo carb diet Frank - Francine Hardaway
Just in: Amazon Preparing to Release Smartphone http://on.wsj.com/1kD12z2 - Nir Ben Yona
Exactly, enterprise won't route notifications via Appledroid - clive boulton
My wife stole my keys. No drone. - Robert Scoble
So my all-chips-all-the-time diet is counter-productive, I guess. - Frank Paynter
Steve jobs invented web applications? LOL. - Murray Macdonald
Francine... it will be interesting to see if that is true about Glass. I might expect so. I'm surprised they didn't drop the price - Tina Chase Gillmor
I wish Dan Farber would tilt his camera down. - Robert Scoble
Yeah, I have lost weight. Drinking a lot less and trying to stay away from carbs. - Robert Scoble
and then Google forked Webkit - Ian Waring
Steve wanted to be like Clint Eastwood and interview Robert's chair - Charlie Isaacs
Robert, will Maryam show me the drone then? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Come on over and we'll fly! :-) - Robert Scoble
multiple open source browsers is a agood thing - Kevin Marks
Robert - Nice on the weight loss. Next step after the improved diet (less booze and carbs) is the CrossFit. - Rob Underwood
Robert, I showed your drone video at the IoT World Forum Steering Committee meeting this week and it totally freaked people out :) the European folks were asking "did he get arrested?" - Charlie Isaacs
I am incredibly close to a Class A "No Fly Zone" for drones but that Phantom 2 Vision+ looks really cool. - Alex de Soto
What is the best fitness tracker today? Which has the most sensors? - Murray Macdonald
They'll start giving glass away when they start to monetize the cloud to the extent that they charge us G+ "customers" for our storage. - Frank Paynter
I've done a course on Google Fusion Tables - and used all my nutrition data and weight i've filled in daily for 12 years now in it. Putting less food in your mouth helps - and carbs is a big factor, much bigger than I expected. - Ian Waring
I lose consistently when 2/3 my carbs of what i'm consuming this year! - Ian Waring
BTW, Semil is a great voice to have in this discussion. I hope he's on the show more. - Rob Underwood
Sinofsky largely moved MS off Win 32 and onto http based interfaces - Ian Waring
+1 Rob - Frank Paynter
Ian, I hate the news that I have to eat less to lose weight. - Frank Paynter
The iPhone wasn't lean. You need a polished product to succeed today. - Murray Macdonald
True, MVP doesn't work well for mobile - Michael Mahemoff
This point that Keith makes week after week is very important, imo. - Tom Guarriello
... is this going to lead to another music discussion. old music vs. new music? - Rob Underwood
Next iPhone will be encased in Liquid Metal. No more milled Alluminium - Ian Waring
and Sapphire screen - Ian Waring
Only if there's a decent tuba part in the new music. - Frank Paynter
I used QUip yesterday. Pretty good:-) - Francine Hardaway
I recommended it to a friend yesterday - Ian Waring
I think this is why Larry has taken up this moonshot idea, Keith. Scale innovation is not what the market is about. - Tom Guarriello
Semil's prescient, none downloadable mobile apps emerging. Ties with Keith's broken lean startup. - clive boulton
iOS is a 45, Android the album? - Kevin Marks
Sinofsky moved MS off of .NET and back onto Win 32. I don't know where you got the idea that he moved it to http based interfaces. That is NOT true in Windows for the most part, except in the tiles up front that most people don't really like that much. - Robert Scoble
Quip that is - though I think Keith was right last year. California seems to ignore the effect of installed bases of lethagic (to change) markets - Ian Waring
Carousal - Kevin Marks
Anyone going to the smart fabrics show on the 23rd? http://www.smartfabricsconference.com/home... - Murray Macdonald
Carousel reminds us all that Mad Men is coming back on Sunday!! - Tom Guarriello
I find it interesting that Quip has been around food a while but people are starting to talk about it again. giving it a second look. that doesn't always happen - Tina Chase Gillmor
Mad Men is coming back? So is Nurse Jackie. - Francine Hardaway
smaller ipads? - Kevin Marks
Oh, thanks for the Nurse Jackie reminder, Francine. One of my faves. - Tom Guarriello
i really NEED a bigger screen - Tina Chase Gillmor
not want. NEED - Tina Chase Gillmor
I love my bigger screen - Francine Hardaway
I love the big android screens - Kevin Marks
Although I hate the Android phone. Texting is sub-optimal if your friends are on IOS - Francine Hardaway
francine: Samsung? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Insert obligatory, "size matters" remarks here... - Tom Guarriello
Nexus 5 - Francine Hardaway
the texting problem is on Apple's end - Kevin Marks
I'll buy it off you Francine. :) - Murray Macdonald
Self cannibalization by Apple once again... - Tom Guarriello
I have to keep it Murray until Apple releases iPhone 6 - Francine Hardaway
Looking back as far as 2005, Sinofsky was throwing http APIs to Sharepoint and the whole Office Suite - thought this continued into Windows 8... - Ian Waring
How about a bigger battery? - Charlie Isaacs
Oh, that's another thing about the Nexus 5 that I don't like: 1/2 day of battery life - Francine Hardaway
you all know it's not the size, it's what you do with it that matters, right? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Android fragmentation addressed via Google play API services http://www.visionmobile.com/blog... - clive boulton
Android fragments help to reduce recoding. Using a browser (or hybrid app) you can ignore screen size if you practice responsive design. - Murray Macdonald
I love it when Tina talks about batteries like that - Charlie Isaacs
somehow I can only say silly things today :-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have solved the battery problems in my life. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. And a car charger. - Robert Scoble
Interesting thing is that Amazon Fire has YouTube and looks like a carbon copy of Android TV screen shots - Ian Waring
I have a Mophie - Francine Hardaway
I use a Mophie, it almost gets me to the end of the day now - Charlie Isaacs
Anybody on this stream score a WWDC ticket? - Tom Guarriello
didn't try - Kevin Marks
Instead of a Mophie, wouldn't life just be better if you could remove / replace the battery on an iPhone, with spare batteries hanging around? - Chien-Yu Lin
Mophiestopheles!!! - Alex de Soto
3D smartphone giveaway at Google I/O? - clive boulton
Title of the show: "My Heartbleeds for the NSA" - Charlie Isaacs
yes +Chien what a novel concept - Charlie Isaacs
Some of the Boston Robotics Mule replacements sound like a lawnmower too - not good in a conflict theatre - Ian Waring
Take the money and run? - Alex de Soto
Semil, Please return to the show soon. - Rob Underwood
Yes, we like Semil - Francine Hardaway
+1 Semil - Alex de Soto
+1 Semil - Tom Guarriello
No Keith, I live with the left - Francine Hardaway
+1 here too - Ian Waring
I think the sound of a few hundred Boston Dynamics bots would be scary as hell. - Murray Macdonald

No, we love you too! - Rob Underwood
Let Keith sing! - Rob Underwood

+1 Semil - J.C. Bouvier

Yes, and that's what I'm waiting for - Francine Hardaway
Alternate Semil and John Taschek - clive boulton
I have a feeling this will be one of the more re-watched Gillmor Gang's on techcrunch, etc... this episode will have some traction. - Rob Underwood
There are no Bad Gangsters. Keep 'em all coming through... - Tom Guarriello
What is the world coming to? Everyone is eating better and swearing less. - Rob Underwood
I want to see the bottle again. Thanks! - Murray Macdonald
what happened to the drinking less thing - Rob Underwood
Cheers! - Alex de Soto
+1 on notifications everywhere Steve - J.C. Bouvier
I've been multi-tasking again. Listening to your soothing voices but only just now paying attention ... apps ... something something ... party - Laura Norvig
H/T to Robert S for that shot of the party ... awesome. - Rob Underwood
Okay, that's it. Opening a bottle. - Murray Macdonald
Pete Stringfellow, country star is in the house! - Robert Scoble
+Robert, that vineyard better send you some free bottles for that placement ad :) - Charlie Isaacs
Francine, the over 50 crowd ... - Laura Norvig
Charlie: Pete brought it. It's an award-winning pinot. VERY awesome! - Robert Scoble
Have a nice weekend all...watch yer angle! - J.C. Bouvier
Cheers! - Rob Underwood

Ugh, I just realized his fever seemed kind of unexplained and came about a week or so after he got a tick bite. Better go to doc. We saved the tick, but I just found out I was supposed to keep it alive. - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Oh geez. :-/ - vicster: full-bodied
Hopefully a total coincidence. There are always regular viruses going around. Think I will not panic and wait until his annual physical next week to ask about it. He's still having stomach pains, but he just had the one bout of fever - no rash at the site of the bite, so that's a good sign. - Laura Norvig

Love that game! - Jed from iPhone
Heh, that was a pathetic score. Later I got up to about 6000. But it's not really about the score. You are supposed to get the combo up to 2048. Apparently my brother was able to do it. Of course. On the leaderboard people have like ... 2 million. - Laura Norvig
Yeah, there is a system similar to a common logic pattern in CS/EE, that makes it pretty easy to hit 2048 and keep going. - NOT THE CRICKET
Give this one a try. http://t.co/B6waBAk3en - Joe
I got to 2048, thank goodness; having achieved it was the only way I could get myself to stop playing the damn game, and I still had a day of twitchy withdrawal afterwards. --It reminded me a lot of Tower of Hanoi. - Deborah Fitchett

Happy 75th anniversary today, Batman. I have many role models, both real and fictional. As a kid, Batman taught me to never give up and the power of persistence, responsibility, and caring toward our fellow humans. I try my best to live up to those lessons, even when I fail.

Box is going to IOP - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think there are still a lot of people outside our bubble. People using whatever machine they have forever or get at work, which are probably rather not iPads. And the young folks grow up with google services on apple machines. - Ludwig Ederle

Microsoft should just give up... 10 years from now and they will be the next RIMM - Jerry Schuman

Is Robert in a Microsoft coma - Moe Glitz from iPhone
google base wasn't an ebay killer, it was a way to get spammers to give them data directly without crawling - Kevin Marks
I sit on a school board and a PTA in Brooklyn. Everyone is shifting to Google Docs, lead by parents. - Rob Underwood
Google Base was a way of feeding a product catalogue into Googles index - Ian Waring
In developing countries people would push open office, but a lot of people wanted to learn Microsoft Office because that's what they needed to know to get a job. Most people under 30 I find use Google docs and work virtually etc. The skill they need is knowing how to use Google Docs. - Michael Roberts
Moe - I think so - Tina Chase Gillmor
When Googlebase was launched, the eBay killer tag was mentioned. - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Oculus have hired Michael Abreash away from Valve - Ian Waring
The endgame: No one knows what version of Office exists, which link is the "tablet" version, how it should be licensed, or whether it supports your needs. Classic Microsoft. - Kevin Costain
Zuckerberg is following the Google X Blueprint - Moe Glitz from iPhone

We spend more time at Deloitte (Consulting, Strategy group) working on making PowerPoint pretty than thinking about our clients' business problems.

Sensory Deprivation Chamber: Would You Get Into One? - I am both attracted and repelled by these - http://www.endoriot.com/2014...
Sensory Deprivation Chamber: Would You Get Into One? -  I am both attracted and repelled by these
"First introduced by Neuro-psychiatrist John C. Lilly in 1954, a Sensory Deprivation Chamber is a light-less, soundproof enclosure, filled with salt water that is kept at skin temperature. In this chamber a person will float weightless on the water with their senses deprived (hence the name Sensory Deprivation Chamber). They are unable to see or hear anything, all while because of the water being the same heat as your body, subjects have been noted to have said “it all just fades away” and all that's left is the mind." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
I'd try it once. - Andrew C (✔)
Would love to try this for a few hours but fear I would fall asleep and drown. - Janet
What was your experience andrew? - Todd Hoff
The water is heavily salted, if this is the same as the ones I encountered a decade or two ago, so you won't drown...unless you roll over in your sleep :-) - Slippy: Potato Croquette
I would love to try this, but will probably settle for an Oculus Rift in the bathtub. That should be safe, right? - Ken Morley
Todd, sorry, was on an ipad. By "I'd", I mean "I would". Have never done so yet. - Andrew C (✔)
Did you find this deprivation chamber enlightening Slippy? I think I would use it as a meditative guide. - Janet
Never been in one, just encountered a few on my travels, asked questions about them. My senses are the only things that keep me distracted from the crap in my head, so it wouldn't be wise for me to try. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
I fear I would like them too much. I love being in an MRI chamber with the banging noise. I am an odd one. - Janet
I've always wanted to try one. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
I know what happens. I saw the movie. - Betsy
That movie where the plastic aliens ate people whole and slowly dissolved them in an acid bath? - Todd Hoff
Tried it once. I had a nice nap. - Steven Perez
Hey, there's one in Vancouver and Victoria now: http://www.floathouse.ca - Andrew C (✔)
If I could have it not pitch black I would try it. Otherwise, no. Complete darkness makes me claustrophobic. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
change "sensory deprivation" to "isolation" and i could get into it. in the early 70s there was a brief market for "womb capsules" like that which were apparently sold mostly in Europe. came with a waterbed and stereo equipment and a television integral to the design. apparently didn't sell well due to price and a bad economy. - Big Joe Silence
I fear I would agree with Laura on the dark part, but I would try it once, at least. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Two words: Altered States. (was: re: Hell yeah I'd try it.) - Akiva
"He's a goddamned GORILLA." -- radiologist reading xray films - Big Joe Silence
I'd try it just to figure out how it feels. Haven't been able to stay alone with my self for a long while now (family, kids, work and stuff). - Berkus Decker
