Checking out Google Inbox. Looks cool but really? I have to watch a video to learn it? Skeptical.
I find it confusing. - Stephen Mack
Cognitive overload. Those circles on the left with the initial for the person's last name? I thought that was some kind of code. And not color coded to match anything. I really don't get it. - Laura Norvig
some cool ideas with swiping to say it's done, pinning important stuff, and setting reminders, but who has time to learn shit? - Laura Norvig

Acknowledging stuff I saved (hoarded?) helps me let go of it.
Found: a printout of this 2004 article about Google (impressive that it has not gone to a digital graveyard) - Laura Norvig

My cup says "NoAgendaShow" on it. - Francine Hardaway
Sarah Francis said she has lost her whole investment once before, and has some loss now - Francine Hardaway
Comparison of Napa to Loma Prieta Earthquakes: - mary hodder
Napa is bad around Napa.. but didn't have the distance or breadth of Loma Prieta - mary hodder
Thanks, Mary. You look very pretty today:-) - Francine Hardaway
Thanks Francine.. - mary hodder
Also.. here is the earthquake watch map: - mary hodder
kitteh! - Laura Norvig
Gray is quite an unimaginative name for a cat - Francine Hardaway
Halley, that's a loss on your part - 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

Laura Norvig
that is fucking awesome! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I can't love this enough!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
It seems awesome, but then a friend posted this commentary which gave me pause - Laura Norvig
Thanks for linking the commentary, Laura. - Anne Bouey
When I was watching it, I thought, "wow, this is a pretty powerful way to make a statement," and I was expecting a very strong, clear, call to action at the end to do something to help prevent rape culture. When I didn't get that, I was very disappointed. - Laura Norvig
Todd Hoff
Peak Google: Search advertising market is $50 billion. Google has most of that. Total advertising market is over $500 billion. Most of that is brand advertising. Google can't capture this market through search. In-stream, native advertising is the future. Very low down in the funnel. Biggest opportunity, top of the funnel, generating brand affinity
True money is not direct response, but brand advertising. Techies only focus on the direct response. - Todd Hoff
Or is the nature of brands changing? Not a pushed top down process where the guy with the most money wins. Brands now built more bottom up from social commentary and reactions. The quality of experience is what matters. - Todd Hoff
Google will not shrink. It will keep the search market. But the total online market is growing to $100-$200 billion and google is not in a good place to capture new forms of advertising. - Todd Hoff
You figured it out -- the top-down model is kaput. - Sean McBride
This was from a podcast in the link above. - Todd Hoff
there's this dual (or triple?) celebrity/band/consumer thing going on, like what Taylor Swift has been doing lately. Your brand gets associated with a lifestyle through being "naturally" embedded in entertainment, social etc. - Laura Norvig

RT @borthwick: Use this card to get into the Gillmor Gang Room -  Don't have Rooms app? Get it at
(what is Rooms?) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
new Facebook app for anonymous chat/forum type discussions. - Laura Norvig
So they've abandoned FF? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I fully admit the headline grabbed me so I clicked & now I can't stop staring at Renee Zellwegger's new face. Send help.
I know. I can't put my finger on what exactly changed, but something did. The eyes? - Eric - ill subliminal
Yeah, the eyes are SO WEIRD. She's not doing the squinty thing anymore... I can't quite put my finger on it either. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The article I read quoted some doctor as saying that her eyes used to be almond shaped and now they're rounder. Also said that the lower half of the face hadn't changed much. I did not look that carefully. - bentley
Something with her nose too. It's narrower. - Tamara J. B.
Good Lord. She doesn't look like the same woman! - Larua Boats
I don't know what makes me sadder, that she felt the need to change her appearance or that everyone feels the need to comment on it like it's anyone's business but her own how she looks. I really hate pop culture media. - Hookuh Tinypants
The fucked up thing is she did it probably for Hollywood and not herself. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's had a *lot* of plastic surgery over the years (look at Jerry Maguire, then Bridget Jones, then post-Jones....). I wonder if you have to do maintenance over time, when you start tucking and shaping and yanking and pulling your face around starting at age 21? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
oh, I just saw a picture-- she is unrecognizable! Going that drastic will make everyone comment.... DO you all remember that horrible sitcom with Jennifer Grey, post-nose job? Where she was also completely unrecognizable as the same person?? Facial features really define us... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yeah. It's shocking actually. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I don't know that Bridget Jones is an apt comparison to show she's had a history of plastic surgery, since she notoriously gained 40+ pounds to play that role in both films. In general I've always found her to look quite lovely and I think she still looks quite lovely and I'm annoyed by both the industry that puts pressure on both men and women to try and stay young-looking and the general public who sit around and gawk and gab and criticize. - Hookuh Tinypants
Her unusual facial features were what I found most attractive about her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
agree w/ starmama. She lost the squinty eyes and the giant lips. Looks very non distinct now - Laura Norvig
I miss her old eyes. They were so unique! I think she now seems to be a cross with Robin Wright. Regardless, when will she act again? - The Other Yvonne
Uh, she has a movie coming out in 2015. Even if you don't follow film/entertainment news, all these judgy OMG HER FACE articles have been mentioning this fact. Which is sad because it shows that everyone is so busy focusing on her appearance and what they have to say about it, they're missing the more relevant details. - Hookuh Tinypants
Here is a side by side picture comparison: Honestly, she doesn't look that different to me. Maybe a bit thinner and a bit older, but I don't see anything that looks like surgery to me. - Ken Gidley
Yeah, I looked and looked, and it seemed like she'd gotten a little thinner. But it was mostly aged skin. Also her eye's seem to be because she doesn't have the strong lines of mascara to shape the eye, and her brows aren't shaped to accentuate the brow line. - NOT THE CRICKET
Someone thought the same thing as me and just added the make-up, (especially around her eye's and eyebrows). Here's what she would have looked like with mascara, a lifted brow, and a deeper lipstick. (There's a second image that also adds foundation and rouge, to get rid of the oily skin.) - NOT THE CRICKET
oh. That actually looks like Renee Zellwegger! (why would she show up at a fashion magazine red carpet without makeup??/) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
She probably has makeup on. A good makeup job means you don't look like you're wearing any at all. Good for her to feel comfortable not showing up all tarted-out like people expect her to be. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed

I agree Laura -- the forums from CompuServe, Prodigy, Usenet, BIX, and where I worked -- The Source - were very important. - John Taschek
trying to use iPad but cant seem to take picture - Darren James
But Scoble is also right. There is a Lord of the Flies effect that happens over time - John Taschek
In order for chat rooms to be useful they need to heavily moderated - Tony Stanislawski
Which most are not willing to do - Tony Stanislawski
I guess that's why really great forums often have a bit of moderation. Pinned FAQs, reminding n00bs to go elsewhere ... - Laura Norvig

Have you guys discussed Venmo here? I thought this post was pretty interesting - saw it right about the same time I started hearing about Venmo everywhere (sort of apropos of identity) - Laura Norvig

Josiah's teacher told me this morning he has been cheeky in class this week and reallllly pushing it. At first he tried to deny it, then he seemed to think it was awfully funny.
So I just told him that since he has been wasting so much of Miss Kerr's time, Josh and I were going to waste some of his time; and that once he finished his homework, he had to write out two pages of "I must not be cheeky at school". - Melly
He doesn't think it's funny anymore. - Melly
He has shut himself in his room (he didn't slam the door, he didn't dare!). I'm happy for him to stay there ;o) - Melly
He's only just finishing the lines now. - Melly
What a great way to handle this!! - Janet
He tried to rail against such a cruel punishment. "I don't want to do it and I'm not going to." This protest was met with silence. It then became "I don't want to do it", to which I replied "I know". He then asked if he could do the writing whilst watching tv. I said "No, you'll get it over with quicker if you give it your full attention." - Melly
I ignored the sighs, and grunts, and cross looks. He did the lines. - Melly
He has been told that he will receive the same punishment with double the lines for the next infraction ;o) - Melly
Good punishment, Melly. - Stephan from iPhone
Well played. - vicster
I just love that y'all use the word "cheeky"! - Laura Norvig

I checked it out earlier this year and then uninstalled it after a few days. Creepy place full of douchey bros. Not a cool place. Lots of k-12 schools are banning it because of the heartache it can cause. For example: When I tried it in Manhattan, I found tons of awful posts from NYU and Columbia students. - Stephen Francoeur
good lord. based on that article, wouldn't touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole. - RepoRat
oh crap...i did hear about yikyak and blocked it out of my mind because the early press on it was so poor, much of the same reasons for what occurred in the article stephen linked to - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yep. What I see when I'm at home (local high schools, other colleges) is different than what I see at work. It's interesting/useful to see what's going on when they're having real dialogue there, but the high school age stuff is abhorrent. - Julie Kane

YikYak is an app that uses your device location to show you anonymous posts by people in your vicinity (not sure of the range, maybe a few miles or so). You can post your own anonymous comments. - Stephen Francoeur

I downloaded to check it out. It's somewhat amusing. - Andy
I just checked it out. Two posts I could intervene in, but a whole lot of tedium, annoyance, and way too much blowjob advice. Still trying to figure out if it's worth spending time there in the building.... I'm also wondering if my commenting (Hey, just sent a building monitor to shush that noise!) will be seen as helpful or creepy. Because being seen as the creepy one on YiKYak would be pretty awful? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

If you want to know when people are having sex in the library, there's an app for that - Laura Norvig from iPhone

I am not an academic librarian, but I do read it here occasionally. Iowa kids are actually remarkably sweet probably 80% of the time. Once in awhile they're very funny. The rest of the time they are racist sexist assholes, but I was expecting that to be most of the posts, so I was pleasantly surprised. - laura x
Today they are tired, have advice about how you should make sure you have lots of time to sleep if you take Tylenol PM, lest you miss class and Michelle Obama, are unsure of how to tell people they like them, and have discovered, by means of pH strip, that a pumpkin spice latte is basic. Also one said "whoa, I should go to the library more often! I actually studied." - laura x
"Basic" is relatively recent slang for me. So I looked it up on Urban Dictionary (because I am old and librarian) and found that the definition there is 8 years old. I'm so basic. - Steele Lawman
Well, you know, I'm so basic I am down with any joke made at the expense of a pumpkin spice latte. - laura x

so yesterday was my first day at the new part-time little pay no benefits nonprofit gig and it was kind of awesome. aside from having to get used to a new routine of having to be somewhere at a certain time dressed in grown-up clothes and adjusting to a schedule switching between jobs during the week, and digging through the files and emails...
of the last three people who had this job going back to 2012 to try and get oriented, and there being no communal coffee in the office kitchen and no phones, and the first official outreach email I sent was met with consternation and terse chastening from one of our partners, and the first event I'm supposed to be supporting happens tomorrow. the rest of it was awesome, which was basically that I looked and felt fabulous for no reason. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
And that in the end is all that matters. - Steve C Team Marina
"no phones"? - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
inorite? no office phones. the org's contact number is the ED's cell. email, dropbox, Google docs, and texts is how they "do business" bc "only old people make phone calls" (actual quote). yeah, so I wonder why the dude is burning out and needs my help. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

Oh nice how do like the EM-1? I'm still using the original EM-5. - Rodfather from Android
Are you using a 3rd party lens with an adapter for those telephoto shots? Oh never mind. It's the 75-300mm lens. Amazing shots. - Rodfather
Beautiful. - Jenny H. from Android
Thanks! Rodfather: the main thing I like is that there's a built-in grip, and that helps a *lot* with the 75-300mm lens. I had gotten an add-on grip with the E-M1 but it wasn't nearly as good. The E-M1 has phase detection autofocus, which helps with flying birds. If I didn't spend 90% of my time on the 75-300mm lens, I would've kept the E-M5. The E-M1's ergonomics are a little better, and it has more buttons and features. Image quality doesn't seem any better. - Amit Patel

I'm glad that we are pretty easy going types who know how to kick back and relax. However two things happen to me: 1) I start to freak out about how much I have to do. 2) I can't seem to make time to get out and enjoy the world enough. Just little things like going to the farmer's market, or for walks on the beach or in the woods, or to meet friends for a drink or coffee. I need more of that stuff. - Laura Norvig

Trying not to freak out about the house. We shortened the investigation period. Have been doing inspections and my main concern is the "cheap-ass siding" as our inspector called it. It's pressboard and very susceptible to water damage as well as termites. On one whole side of the house it's warped.
So basically, we need to put new siding on the whole house, really. But even bigger concern is if any mold got through. Although it didn't smell bad or anything. Ugh, this sucks. Off to talk to realtor and think about negotiating a cash-back offer maybe. - Laura Norvig
Good luck, Laura! - Jenny H. from Android
Wow. Horoscope today: "This is a challenging week. In the beginning you must learn information which is difficult and detailed. Then it may be changed and you start all over again later. A similar situation occurs with your home or property. A contractual deal that you thought complete turns out to have a flaw and needs re-working." - Laura Norvig
Siding can be 20-40K. Good idea to make them kick in for that. - Todd Hoff
When I was looking late last year, we had put a offer in one place and were waiting for inspections to come back, at the same time to calm our anxiety over what might be found, we kept looking at other homes just in case that fell through. It helped a lot. Hope this turns out well and you get your home soon. - Me
OK, maybe I was exaggerating. Don't really need to replace all the siding, necessarily. but may face unknowns once we start digging in to repairs. I guess that's how it goes. We're asking for a modest cash-back credit. - Laura Norvig
A different horoscope today (different astrologer - how do they all know I'm buying a house?): "Even though you've touched the bottom-line, you may still hope that a situation will turn out OK - even when you know that it might not. A renovation project could be involved - or just plain history. Explaining to someone close that the costs of a development are 'worth it' might be challenging in the extreme - especially when you're so emotionally wound-up." - Laura Norvig
Got the credit we asked for! Hopefully that is just because the seller is anxious to be done with selling, not because they are trying to unload a lemon on me ... - Laura Norvig

Besides the green beauty that is the Borland (Enterprise Technology Center) grounds, I love that my freeway exit is now "Santa's Village". I love the trees we can see out all of the windows. However, my cube is still just a cube, and I face the computer with my back to the corridor, so I don't get to see the trees.
Santa's Village has to be the topic of my next #saturdayff - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Ah I was 5 when it closed. I do remember going there. - Rodfather from Android
Yeah, it closed the year I came to Santa Cruz. But you could still see most of the stuff that stayed there for awhile. - Laura Norvig

Today I walked around the whole entire walkway of all the modules that runs around the third story of the whole complex (which is HUGE). It runs everywhere EXCEPT around what was Phillipe's office. He didn't want people peering in his windows, I suppose. This meant I had to knock on a window to get someone's attention because I couldn't get back to the proper door where my key card would work. - Laura Norvig
It's green because they use recycled water on the grounds, but it still feels SO sinful in these drought times. - Laura Norvig
I wasn't living in this area back then, but I had so many Borland products and imagined they were all made in a magical place. I was greatly surprised the first time I drove on highway 17 and went "HEY!", recognizing what that place was. - Amit Patel

the nonprofit I interviewed with last week needs a yes or no by week's end. I honestly don't know what to do. I've listed the pros and cons and it comes out mostly a wash in terms of potential risks versus rewards. part of me is truly excited by the challenge and sheer insanity of the job. the other part just wants a decent paycheck and benefits.
por ejemplo: $9/hr at 20 hours a week. no benefits, no tech provided, no budget for anything unless I raise the money myself. ED hasn't been paid in 3 years and I've no doubt he expects a similar level of sacrificial attitude about "the mission." - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Hold out for something that pays better and has bennies. You can get it. Work that network. - Spidra Webster

#saturdayff When I was very little, we lived in Amherst, MA and there was a corn field right next to our house. We used to play hide and seek in it and I have a vague memory of getting lost in it. We moved from there when I was six, so it is a pretty vague, yet visually vivid, memory. I see the corn stalks and how tall they were compared to me!
I can smell the dirt, too. - Laura Norvig

"New representations of thought — written language, mathematical notation, information graphics, etc — have been responsible for some of the most significant leaps in the progress of civilization, by expanding humanity’s collectively-thinkable territory." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"But the dynamic medium offers the opportunity to deliberately invent a humane and empowering form of knowledge work.
