AHnix (Anna Haro)
I hated high school. I don’t trust anybody who looks back on the years from 14 to 18 with any enjoyment. If you liked being a teenager, there’s something wrong with you. -
Yes. - Jenny H. from Android
Like anyone, I had my issues with being a teenager but I can honestly say that I enjoyed it for the most part. I guess I'm not to be trusted? - MoTO Moca Blend
I would venture to say most girls found it less pleasant. Girls can be ruthless to other girls. - Janet
I loved jr. high and absolutely hated high school. Those years were just extra miserable for me, and I'm not quite sure why? I'm blaming hormones/biology...and all the dummies around me. ;) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I had my ups and downs, but the only part of high school I have nostalgia for is that one winter the weather was so bad we only had class 2-3 days a week. ;-) - John (bird whisperer)
IDK, Janet. It's been my experience that many of the women I know look back at high school much more fondly than most of the men I know. I think a lot of it, though, also has to do with what the person did after high school. If they went on to college, they are less likely to look back at high school as "the best time of their lives", but if they went straight into the blue-collar... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I generally liked high school. I had mostly good teachers, good friends, lots of activities, and it feels like the last time I was a bit more confident in myself (that's pre-weight gain and pre-anxiety.) It wasn't perfect, and I'm not nostalgic about it, but it was alright. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
the only parts of high school i enjoyed were art class and drama class. getting randomly detained and Mirandaed (a hoot, since as a minor i had no rights) on campus by police on suspicion of theft/dealing/anything just cos of how i looked and the crowd i ran with? not so much. no, granted, the crowd i ran with admittedly WERE a load of thugs, but they were also genuinely warm to me and... more... - Big Joe Silence
High school was fine, better than home. - Greg GuitarBuster
I'll accept this statement as hyperbole, but otherwise it's unfortunately myopic. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Junior high was like a hormone-infested cockroach den and I would never wish it upon children or teachers. The onset of puberty brought in so much bitchiness from the girls and so much judginess from the guys that it was almost unbearable to get out of bed every morning for those three years. It's also where everyone began splitting into their cliques. That was where I learned to... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
I had problems in my life but I still remember my adolescence as pretty awesome. It was mostly fun & often exciting. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I have to admit, the first thing that came to mind was Al Bundy from "Married With Children". I mean, I didn't *hate* high school, but that can't be the acme of your life. - Victor Ganata
^haha, I forgot all about Al and his high school football glory days. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I loved high school and those years. I played tons of sports, got good grades, had a ton of friends, traveled a ton with parents and they let me bring friends too, and generally liked my life. Sure I didn't always get along with my parents but overall those years were pretty good compared to my earlier childhood, which sucked. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I don't know if high school was as good as I remember it, but it was better than home. Much better - Iván Abrego
I went in and out of depression. But OTOH, I had fun being a bad girl. I was hanging out with people, umm, a LOT older than me. - Laura Norvig
I miserable in high school. Bullied quite a bit. Glad it's over. - Jed
i left out the near-constant beatings and attempted knifings in my comment earlier. oh, and getting shot at. so very fun. :P - Big Joe Silence
best and blurst of times kind of thing for me - Brent Schaus
I generally liked Jr High & HS. I was always a huge nerd but got along with everyone. I grew up with a reputation as a good athlete so I was already friends with all the jocks. My group of friends in Jr High were all the popular kids and athletes. Then in HS I hung out with the nerds. - Rodfather
I should have stated I moved to a different school at the age of 12. The community is still as closed now as it was way back then. My 35th reunion and I still hear tall tales of things people thought I was doing. I hung out with the drug kids, they were the most accepting. - Janet
LB: Ratchet Bear
What's holding you back?
This is a deep question. - Julian
My bra. Bazinga! - Kristin from iPhone
Brazinger? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Hunger. - Jenny H.

Metaperception. - Julian
My shirt. - imabonehead
The cat. - Laura
Bullshit excuses. - Soup in a TARDIS
horrible lack of self assurance. - A Gunny named Slickback
Fear. It's always fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of the existential crisis that haunts me each night: who even am I anymore? - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
My own inadequacies. Well, and sometimes anxiety. - Jennifer Dittrich
FEAR - Friar Will
Fear. - Laura Norvig from iPod
Very little. - Jenica
Damage. - Spidra Webster
The voices/AI shackles - Mo Kargas
Al Sharpton. - Akiva

Hello - Ian Waring
I'm getting the sense this is some kind of media blackout surrounding the games aside from the official feed. I would also agree with Robert - and for me the games feel almost too well scripted esp. the commentary. - Michael Roberts
Final Score Scotland 0 England 20, ok you can start now :-) - Scott Jordan
Just saw Her yesterday. Liked it. Want to hear my brother's take on it. He's been quoted in two articles about it, even though he hasn't seen it yet. - Laura Norvig
watching it same way as rest of old media - social media tells what happens that might matter to me, keeps from having to see most all of the the corporate blather - Jerome Hughes
Talk amongst yourselves for a minute ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
The Man stood on the burning deck... - Ian Waring

Microsoft's future is probably another Companies past - Moe Glitz from iPhone
It's the old Ken Olsen trick. Get all the VPs in a Woods Meeting, send them a VAX to assemble - Ian Waring
I watched 'Her' two days ago. Since I listen to Gillmor Gang every week.. its really didn't seem that far fetched at all. - Michael Roberts
Jerome, no, I'll check it out. One of my thoughts during Her was that the AI didn't *really* have her own personality, it was just his narcissism that made it seem so. But OTOH, what would a human know about AI personality? - Laura Norvig
Did you all read this from Siri's founder about Her? He says it isn't gonna happen anytime soon. - Robert Scoble
Power in our area is up and down. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Send money to Enron! - Ian Waring
We can't maintain the broadcast - Tina Chase Gillmor
The Circle was weak IMO - cardboard characters and weak plotting - Kevin Marks

Lots and lots of wind here - Tina Chase Gillmor
I agree Kevin, but the idea behind the book was interesting. - Scott Jordan
See you all next time - Tina Chase Gillmor
Not happening? - Keith Teare
Robert, that starts with a bunch of Hollywood hubris 'Hollywood has always shown the way to the future. It’s a little known fact that, for decades, the bigscreen inspired many forward-looking technologies long before their day.' - Hollywood shows it after science fiction writers write about it - Jerome Hughes
aaron swartz's unfinished novel about an evil google was much funnier - Kevin Marks
Not happening - Tina Chase Gillmor
Bye folks, till next time - Scott Jordan

"The web isn't *the* platform anymore. iOS and Android are." I'd argue that the web is still a pretty platform - where are we watching this again? - Ben Werdmuller
The best Social Network on Mobile is the iPhone. There's an App for everything - Moe Glitz from iPhone
ooh, I love how Keith says Malasia - Tina Chase Gillmor
Sometimes, a half-hearted effort you create gains the type of traction no one expects and exceeds your initial willingness to support it. - Chien-Yu Lin
I agree with Keith... ios and android are the platforms.. except they are run by companies now.. - Michael Roberts
The App Store is the new Ed Sullivan Show - Moe Glitz from iPhone
isn't this like ie6 when they tried to control the web? - Michael Roberts
my kids loves it. Me I cant do it - Tina Chase Gillmor
Flappy Birds is about touch and technique. - Chien-Yu Lin
It is palm-sized golf. - Chien-Yu Lin
Milk and two sugars please Kevin - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Secret - Ben Werdmuller
this is chilled green tea, Moe. You don't want milk an sugar in it - Kevin Marks
There is now a Snapchat for Business Folks - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm sweet enough! - Moe Glitz from iPhone
it was popular before they invoked the false scarcity - Tina Chase Gillmor
Kevin, I've seen it done ... :/ - Ben Werdmuller
Tina: right. But now he took something popular and put it in the stratosphere and got EVERYONE to notice it. - Robert Scoble
For sports, Bill Veeck of the Chicago White Sox would give tickets away when his teams were good. His rationale was that it created more buzz and would sustain the team's desirability in times when the Pale Hose were bad. This is a common marketing application and is outlined in "Veeck as in Wreck". - Chien-Yu Lin
Hi s name is Dong Nguyen @dongatory - Scott Jordan
Veeck was there to plant ivy in Wrigley, brought in Eddie Gaddell, promoted Disco Demolition, and started what we know as modern sports marketing. - Chien-Yu Lin
In the wine business - Château d'Yquem one year didn't like their wine - so they simply didn't release any at all. One of the most expensive white wines you can buy. - Michael Roberts
Michael: exactly. - Robert Scoble
Thinking out of the Walled Gardens - Moe Glitz from iPhone
flappy bird took off via twitter: - Kevin Marks
Keith: totally agree, and they also dominate the platforms? its means ios, android call the shots.. - Michael Roberts
Dong Ngyuen says he still makes games - Kevin Marks
Is the quality of start-ups being plateau'ed by the limitation of mobile devices? - Chien-Yu Lin
the app store is the new tower records; twitter is the new ed sullivan - Kevin Marks
Kevin: agree.. and its years to break that model.. so how do you make an app store not controlled by 'tower records' - Michael Roberts
The App Store is now the Hit Parade for the Smartphone Generation - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chien-Yu - I don't think so. Its the lack of big ideas and funding for them. - Keith Teare
is Microsoft "getting it" with their investment in Foursquare? - Tina Chase Gillmor
foursquare's database of small businesses is the best available - Kevin Marks
Location is still an open game. No clear winners yet - Moe Glitz from iPhone
will apple announce tools for ibeacons at macworld? a brilliant play by apple. - Michael Roberts
Keith: "Big Stuff" = Agree (the big "backbones" have been created; now it is the majors buying niche features, patents and personnel). "Little Stuff" = A developer is bound by GPS, accelerometer, speaker, wifi. - Chien-Yu Lin
are iBeacons any different to QCodes? Except I can't put a QCode on my forehead, and get it scanned by walkers by. - SImonB
Keith: Little Stuff example - what could the fitness industry do with a Square-sized and -weighted gas analyzer? Galvanic skin response measurement device? - Chien-Yu Lin
BLE seems to be the biggest business opportunity no one knows about. - Michael Roberts
Location needs a new layer that's between websites and Apps? - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Steve: They do use pseudo-iBeacons for things like anti-theft devices for large, expensive construction equipment (jackhammer, hammer drill). - Chien-Yu Lin
Keith: Also, do you think we are now at a point where the Big Ideas require legislation - and that's something maybe people do not want to get into? - Chien-Yu Lin
Legislation always comes later - after deployment - Keith Teare
BLE seems to me, to be the entry point to create more NEST like tools that take the connected world to new places.. this I think is the very exciting... and it connects the makr world finally to everything else that is happening. Imagine collaborative consumption opportunities as well. - Michael Roberts
like with Bitcoin - Keith Teare
microsoft want to know where we are - Tina Chase Gillmor
yes for Bing - Tina Chase Gillmor
Keith: Agree - but the difference of the "hard problem" between Uber (license) and say a company that is developing medical transparency is infinitely different. - Chien-Yu Lin
Was it a Ballmer Deal? Think not - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Wondering, that Foursquare is still around ... - Johannes Siemers
Yes - medical a special case. Avoid it unless you have years to kill getting approvals - Keith Teare
The Bing team working on something, has pulled in engineers from Windows, and SQL server. - clive boulton
Robert: Are you excited about Apple again? Can we expect some developments this year.. Medical.. Iwatch.. TV (finally).. - Michael Roberts
Google Maps, Google Local, Waze. Google is everywhere and nowhere in Location - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Michael: I'm optimistic but this year will really define Apple in the post-Jobs era. Not sure they will hit it out of the park, but the opportunity is there. - Robert Scoble
we need to talk to Dennis Crowley again - Tina Chase Gillmor
microsoft buying into foursquare: - Kevin Marks
Johannes: lots of people are still using Foursquare. - Robert Scoble
Keith: ... but that's the issue: the un-tackled Big Ideas have that legislation requirement up front. - Chien-Yu Lin
i still use foursquare to check in occasionally - Tina Chase Gillmor
Foursquare was more of a game than a game changer - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Moe: totally disagree. - Robert Scoble
Yahoo to partner with Yelp on local search engine results - WSJ - Scott Jordan
Keith: Is iBeacons proprietary.. Does that matter? When you say iBeacons.. does it = BLE in general? ie.. any device can take advantage of that ping? - Michael Roberts
Microsoft Bing team working off campus by Bellevue transit center with younger social engineers - clive boulton
Would love to see the statistics of Foursquare users and non-users for home burglaries incurred. - Chien-Yu Lin
ibeacons is a software approach to using BLE. It isn't proprietary. Anybody can implement - Keith Teare
They still haven't cracked Location, Robert, even though they owned the check-in brand - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Michael: Bluetooth Low Energy beacons are open. Android will get them (transmit, it already has receive) this year. - Robert Scoble
Moe: really? Everywhere I use Foursquare has the best details I've seen. - Robert Scoble
am getting "you're near here, want to check in?" type notifications from 4sq now - Jerome Hughes
Could Foursquare be essentially location-based Groupon? - Chien-Yu Lin
Recode reports Marissa Mayer signed Yelp deal for local search - clive boulton
Great... so does any of the gang feel that Android, IOS dominance of the platform matters.. To me it feels strange.. we have a web that is open finally.. but mobile seems very closed.. there is no open in mobile.. does that matter at all? - Michael Roberts
Android is pretty open; iOS isn't too bad, bitcoin app rejection notwithstanding, and both still support the web - Kevin Marks
Michael - I think it doesn't matter so long as anybody can put any app (legal at least) into any app store, worldwide - Keith Teare
Yelp's problem is that Yahoo has done a deal with them - Moe Glitz from iPhone
people not wanting to change is why we have Paper instead of changes to "original Facebook" - Jerome Hughes
Yelps long tail seems really stale, reviews 2 , 4, or more years old - clive boulton
Foursquare's original Gaming business model sucked - Moe Glitz from iPhone
robert... what did you say to us? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Kevin: How is Android open? I just chatted with Mark Surman at Mozilla.. They are pitching a new Mozilla OS..recognizing that are up against some very smart people.. but don't feel either the Android or IOS app stores are open.. ME personally I'm an IOS user but it made me think as we more towards mobile. - Michael Roberts
Moe, it got them to where they are - Jerome Hughes
robert you cant hear well can you? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina: I'm going to reboot. Call me back in three minutes. - Robert Scoble
Robert you have a lot of light on you as well - Tina Chase Gillmor
like almost whiting you out - Tina Chase Gillmor
But they haven't moved on. Look at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat - Moe Glitz from iPhone
From the POV of a developer - only reach matters. Second is ability to deploy and distribute. Mozilla has no reach - Keith Teare
Foursquare should be the No 1 Location Brand, worth billions of dollars. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
checking in there can post your text and photo content to not only 4sq, but also FB & Twitter, and have mine also going to flickr using flicksquare - Jerome Hughes
4sq location recommendations pushed to my Android useful (I could use notifications b4 I arrive) - clive boulton
Tina: call me again. - Robert Scoble
also instagram can post to foursquare, and uses foursquare for locations - Kevin Marks
Twitter dropped 30% from the high: it dropped to $50.04 from off the high of the day before. - Chien-Yu Lin
Keith: true, but mozilla had no reach wen it started...but firefox took off.. I suspect there are people who support this idea of an open web.. still I agree.. most people won't care.. its really about the best user experience. - Michael Roberts
ok Robert... - Tina Chase Gillmor
My system was starting to go wonky. - Robert Scoble
Maybe Twitter should launch TwitCoin - Moe Glitz from iPhone
calling you Robert - Tina Chase Gillmor
it's more about engaged users and how engaged, not only about number of users with accounts, many of whom aren't really engaged - Jerome Hughes
Twitter has a low-threshold for entry / sign-on compared to other social networks. If you aren't on it now, you probably see no value in it for yourself and won't get in. - Chien-Yu Lin
Crap my Logitech app isn't working. - Robert Scoble
our studio cat, Gray wants some attention NOW - Tina Chase Gillmor

How can Bill really go back to Microsoft? He is sooo engaged with the Gates Foundation..He is now the 5th largest donor in the world... That is huge.. That is his first love and he's doing a good job. - Michael Roberts
Don't think Gates will ever donate his heart again to Microsoft - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Gates at Microsoft is smoke and mirrors.. Don't believe it. - Michael Roberts
But he's had some time to be Mr. Big Charity guy. Doesn't he also care about his baby Microsoft? It is an old teenager or adult now - Tina Chase Gillmor
keith is locked up but too close to close of show - Tina Chase Gillmor
'roughly a huge trove' - Jerome Hughes
Jeff Raikes runs Gates Foundation day-to-day - clive boulton
Tina: Yes, but now he has a reputation in the donor world. (that I'm in)... He doing great... doubt he want to go backwards... solving HIV and Aids takes a lot of his time... - Michael Roberts
If Foursquare was the killer location Brand, Facebook would have already acquired it as one of their key Multiplex Apps - Moe Glitz from iPhone
we should get Andreessen on - Kevin Marks
Clive: Gates is very involved. - Michael Roberts
AOL already reset the benefits. - Chien-Yu Lin
Moe, only a Facebook acquisition could validate Foursquare as the killer location Brand? - Jerome Hughes
Tim Armstrong: "Beatings will continue until morale improves." - Chien-Yu Lin
Michael - Yes, he is doing amazing things. But he will step back into some more active role at MS. - Tina Chase Gillmor
True Jerome, which is why Location is an open game - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Tina: I'm not so sure. Perhaps in the very short term.. but he has really been involved in his Foundation.. I think his role is political... He knows himself he's been out of that world for quite some time. - Michael Roberts
Moe, Facebook is big and currently on top. Still, don't believe their location capabilities have eliminated Foursquare's location advantages. - Jerome Hughes
btw... you guys have been mentioning companies.. I've been adding them to a virtual stock. (note virtual).. and I'm up 112% since I started.. the Gilllmor Gang fund...;) - Michael Roberts
The story about the parents and AOL's Tim Armstrong: - Robert Scoble
Michael: that's a cool idea! - Robert Scoble
Right Jerome. Twitter should own Location, but they are currently lost in transition - Moe Glitz from iPhone
+1 Steve - clive boulton
facebook is involved in foursquare through instagram - Kevin Marks
I've been following Steve.. for over 10 years... since the beginning.. I still think Steve is the best voice in the industry... - Michael Roberts
there's a correlation between those who don't want their interfaces to change and those who long for a fictitious 'good old days' - Jerome Hughes
The fifth Beatles! - Moe Glitz from iPhone
a dancing hand! - Jerome Hughes
Another great show. Always informative and lively. - Chien-Yu Lin
Top Show, as per usual! - Moe Glitz from iPhone
thanks, was a bit surreal watching in HD on my phone while being driven home from a winter bike ride - Jerome Hughes

Thanks! Great Show.. As Always! Wish I was closer... but Montreal is lovely too. - Michael Roberts

Charles - you mean new tricaster? - Tina Chase Gillmor
better experience? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Thanks for tuning in Michael Roberts - Tina Chase Gillmor
btw.. as some of you know I'm involved with ICT4development.. Might start a kinda GG for developing countries... love to have some of you involved.. been thinking about this for 5 years... so don't hold your breath... but you are doing a great job. - Michael Roberts
Tina: Thanks. You are fabulous! So happy you continue to put this show together.. I hope GG is getting something out of this..I feel so few people realize how important this show is to the industry. - Michael Roberts
What nice comments. Thanks for joining us! - Robert Scoble
name this show hit by power out: Flappy birrrrrrdy out. - clive boulton
Tina: yes - the new tricaster - there seems to be a better flow in the conversations, perhaps because of the format of the talking heads on a colored background - it seems more visually logical, and the quality of the image has increased. Also there was something eerie about your hand waving in the background in the previous incarnation. It feels more cohesive now - like when Johnny Carson had the announcer become part of the show - Charles Carrico
Thank you.. - Amang Berangas

So this is about to go down.
I saw the trailer, and I thought "Ooh, Robot Chicken are doing a spoof of all the LEGO(TM) movies?" and I was pleased. But then I discovered that was not the case, and I became ensaddened. - Steel Penguin Slippy
Looks like a shameless merchandising cash-in and sounds like a shameless merchandising cash-in, but it has a NINETY-FREAKING-SEVEN Rotten Tomatoes score! That's better than WALL-E! - Mark Trapp
I just listened to a review of this movie and they thought it was pretty good, although a bit long. - Victor Ganata
First third I was skeptical. Second third I settled in for the ride. Last third I was like, ok I see what you did there; and it felt good. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Might try and see this this weekend. Maybe. - Derrick
This will be Wade's second movie theater experience. First was Winnie the Pooh. - Laura Norvig from iPod
It got a surprisingly good review from our paper, and I generally trust their critics. Not one we would have added to our queue otherwise, but we've done so. - Walt Crawford
Springing for 3D! W00t! - Laura Norvig
Wow, that was better than I thought it would be. Quite enjoyable. - Laura Norvig from iPod
I want to watch it. - Rodfather from Android
I think I'm more excited for the video game based on the movie. - Rodfather

Will Google Translate Let Us Talk to Aliens and Dolphins? | Re/code -
Talk starts about 20 min. in. Good layperson's talk - not technical. - Laura Norvig
great coverage of machine learning applications - language, image recongnition - Laura Norvig
there's some stuff in there about MOOCs that I also liked. 1) Emphasis on personal, interactive learning. 2) Acknowledgment that many heavy hitters in this area come from AI and that this is not a coincedince 3) Acknowledgment that we still don't know what parts of MOOCs and other online learning work and don't work, but that more data and experimentation may bring some answers. - Laura Norvig
Laura Norvig
Finally saw Her yesterday. It's basically a chick flick. I liked it.
There were a few deeper issues that were touched on but not well explored: could an AI ever really have it's own personality, ever feel emotions? - Laura Norvig
And part of me was thinking: does he love this OS just because she knows him so well? Is this just extreme narcissism? - Laura Norvig
I think "Her" is one of those movies that rely heavily on intertextuality for depth. Like, I wonder if the movie would be anywhere as interesting or even make any sense if not for all the movies (and other media) that deal with AI? - Victor Ganata

OH: "Boston and Oregon are two of the best states to go running in."
I went to college with someone who thought Cape Cod was a state. She was from Cape Cod. - Zamms
One of the first-year writing porfolios I once read contained reference to both "Michael Bloomberg, the governor of New York" and then later to "the mayor of a state." - Catherine Pellegrino
you people are making me sad. - MoTO Moca Blend
i went to college in Binghamton NY with multiple people from Long Island who didn't know that Albany was the capitol of their own state. they thought it was NYC. - Christa
Cape Cod is the Capital of Boston, right? - Joe - Systems Analyst
Ha! It's more like Vatican City. - Zamms
very, very sad - MoTO Moca Blend
To be fair, Boston is like 1/4 of the state and the Cape is nothing like the rest of the state. They could probably be independent if they wanted to. - Heather, 30k Camper
falmouth would take umbridge (sp?) - Christina Pikas
Don't forget the great state of New England - I always forget whether the capital is Boston or Cape Cod. - Laura Norvig

I don't know ... it's a little unrealistic. But the learning will be fun. They want me to learn everything about Salesforce and HubSpot and be the one to pull data, optimize our use, etc. That's a lot on top of trying to teach a pack of luddites to leverage Twitter, blog, etc.. *grumpy* - Laura Norvig
Oh I hear you. Guess who is charged with turning pamphlet content into sellable 'elearning'? They're crazy, but at least it's not boring anymore. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android

Another day, another hacked WordPress install. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take a minute and check yours. Please? Themes, plugins, everything.
done - lris
"You have the latest version of WordPress. Future security updates will be applied automatically." <--- is this not standard by now? - Meg VMeg
I hadn't been updating the Themes because I didn't want to zap my customizations--but I don't use either of the frequently-updated themes (and WP doesn't appear to offer a way to delete themes). So, OK, updated, for what it's worth, since the code would never be activated. - Walt Crawford
Walt, you can make a Child Theme so that the parent theme can update whenever without blowing away your customizations. (my blog was hacked a couple years ago, probably through the theme) - lris
Iris: Turns out the theme I actually customized (Letterhead) never gets updated; the ones that are constantly updated are, apparently, included with every WP install, whether you want them or not. - Walt Crawford
Updated everything - does that mean I haven't been hacked? (no obvious signs). I actually sort of forgot I have a WordPress install. Experiment on a found domain that I haven't had time to attend to. - Laura Norvig
Laura Norvig
One library gone, on to the next one. Except this one is being boxed for some unknown future rather than shipped off to Better World Books.
This sounds so hard - maʀtha
I had to leave the room when we disposed of some of the ephemera from the last library - so sad! - Laura Norvig
wow. peace to you. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
:-( - lris
They were important special libraries in their time, but I feel good about the way the first one transitioned to an online library. The second one is a highly specialized collection on the topic of service-learning. If anyone has leads on a possible home for this, hit me up. We're also waiting to see if our original funder has a home in mind - they said they might, but are being a bit mysterious about it. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Laura, you might reach out to Maureen Barry at Wright State. She's very involved with service learning. Her twitter handle is @sllibrarian - Hedgehog
Thanks, Abigail - looks like she is aware of our resources - links to us in her pathfinder. Her name sounds familiar, too. - Laura Norvig
(*liking* to bookmark) - Betsy
Happy Ending to this story (partly). The physical library found a new home at Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Library, University of Nebraska, Omaha.The online library/website part of it is a bit in limbo. National Youth Leadership Council was supposed to take it on but I think they are a bit under-resourced. Omaha may take advantage of some of the online document curation we did over the years. - Laura Norvig
I love that I made this big ass pitcher of margaritas for the game tonight like I ain't gotta be in the office tomorrow at 8am.

Besides, it's totally going to snow tonight anyway. - Zamms
I dunno, Zamms. I got a little heavy handed with my pours. J, uh, yeah...sure. I'm...sharing. - Derrick
I am having some limoncello whilst making tomato consomme. I've got a easy morning too :) - Iain Baker
Iain, I happen to see my passport in my bag. I could be there in...well, a few short hours. :) - Derrick
There is LOADS of soup - I had a huge bunch of tomatoes to use up. Seriously my favourite soup recipe - lovely clear broth, flavoured with basil. Needs to be served with a drizzle of Olive Oil on the top, and that's about it. - Iain Baker
That sounds gorgeous, Iain! - vicster: full-bodied
I'd eat that. - Derrick
I have Jamesons and left over Chinese food haha - Rodfather
Oh yeah. That's kicking in nicely. - Derrick

apple says this for several quarters now? - Ludwig Ederle
Facebook App called "Paper" - Ian Waring
It would be interesting to see if Paper will ultimately be a cross-platform app or a "closed-garden." I think it would have a huge impact if people will be able to post on Twitter, for example. - Nir Ben Yona
Liquid Metal has 17 Apple patents, GTAT have Sapphire screen plant in Arizona - Ian Waring
the Paper app is iPhone only, not even iPad - Kevin Marks

I couldn't download it on iPad last night Kevin - Francine Hardaway
You can look at how LinkedIn has buried Pulse News within. Don't care for that Yahoo! approach. - Alex de Soto
I had it working on my old Nexus 7 tab - Ian Waring
I did too, but then I wiped it to give to my son - Kevin Marks
That's the lean startup methodology - Francine Hardaway
Facebook Must be the most expensive App Company in the world - Moe Glitz from iPhone
main thing is that the apps get those who'd leave to keep using their services from a different interface - Jerome Hughes
Poke, Home. Failures - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I don't use anything on FB but the newsfeed - Francine Hardaway
Facebook camera - Kevin Marks
Oh, and events - Francine Hardaway
Facebook looking to allow anonymity soon - Ian Waring

i'm always amazed at how much I love this conversation ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
their events don't pipe into calendar any more - Kevin Marks
Apps are like "appendages" to the OS? - Alex de Soto
and they'll migrate behaviors from the main app to other apps as they find them more useful for those behaviors - Jerome Hughes
I have one private Group on Facebook (Social Media Nonprofit Friends) I use for professional development, just-in-time answers. But that just happens to be a great community - we would be comfortable using any tool to communicate. The rest of FB is meh to me. - Laura Norvig
Two datapoints, Steve - Francine Hardaway
Look how differently each of us use FB - Francine Hardaway
Ben Evans and app paradigms: - Ian Waring
ask a fish about the ocean - Jerome Hughes
Steve, she uses Instagram...that's for sure. - Nir Ben Yona
bingo keith. kids know what apps they use. maybe she just doesn't resonate with the word app. - Laura Norvig
"How do you send messages to a friend...?" Not, what app...? - Tom Guarriello

And how @Tina - J.C. Bouvier
Oh you Englismen... back of the fork - Tina Chase Gillmor
This generation's feast moves to the latest and greatest wherever it is... - J.C. Bouvier
That would fail like poke did - Francine Hardaway
And (pop) culture - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
On the Paper app itself, how can they claim a 'distraction' free environment w/out ads? Are they charging the outlets like Atlantic & NatGeo for an extended schema of data from Paper users? - J.C. Bouvier
Totally - Francine Hardaway
But that isn't brand loyalty - Francine Hardaway
I use FB messenger more than I thought i ever would - Tina Chase Gillmor
Not sure that people will necessarily use these apps in 5/10 years (FB, Twitter, Instagram). - Nir Ben Yona

combination of utility and popularity makes an app go. - Laura Norvig
I use FB messenger cos twitter won't let me dm links any more - Kevin Marks
you a quality loyal Robert. If Uber's quality sinks, you will jump.... and fast - Tina Chase Gillmor
Facebook's mobile app wouldn't stop demanding that I install the damn messenger I finally did...I think the multiple app strategy is their plan, but I don't think it can be a holistic solution for them... - J.C. Bouvier
I see no point why brands should disappear. The more disruption the more you need brands as a guideline to quality and pop culture, no? - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
fb messenger on android is really handy - Kevin Marks
Ben Evans: This is the key reason why the new social messaging apps are so interesting - not because they have users and inventory now, but because they can be vectors for some of this sort of behaviour - a third acquisition, discovery and distribution channel besides Facebook and Google. - Ian Waring
Amazon is a good example: Different apps for different tasks but a universal Web presence for all. - Alex de Soto
Agree Kevin - Francine Hardaway
I love FB messenger. - Robert Scoble
But brand alone is nothing - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
Uber is in legal trouble see my link above - Charles Carrico

Twitter DM would be cooler if it worked like Friendfeed - if you could message more than one person privately at once. - Laura Norvig
which FB messenger does enable - Kevin Marks
Francine: I don't know. I think Facebook's brand is on a major rebound. People are finally figuring out it's better than Twitter or Google+ in many ways. - Robert Scoble
Wow, Robert, I totally disagree. Facebook is getting quieter and quieter. They are making it really hard for Pages content to be seen in feeds. Teens are leaving. - Laura Norvig
Laura: not in my world. - Robert Scoble
Not among kids, Robert. And actually not even among "normal" people my age. People groan about FB, and use it reluctantly - Francine Hardaway
There's no joy in using FB - Francine Hardaway
i'm gonna hace to bring Steve's monitor up about 6 inches so he doesnt look down when he's talking to everyone - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't think Facebook is struggling on mobile at all - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone

no, that's because of YOUR brand, Robert! - Laura Norvig

Facebook notifications are pretty good. - Alex de Soto

We chat on Facebook - Ludwig Ederle from iPhone
capture the people who are leaving because of inefficiencies in the thing they won't allow you to change - Jerome Hughes
Dale - 400m users. Mainly in Asia. WhatsApp has a similar number in Europe and US - Keith Teare
The people I just showed you online are NOT there because I am. - Robert Scoble
I'd agree with the McDonald's analogy. Popular but not cool. - Laura Norvig
WeChat is china first - Kevin Marks
I won't get it -iPhone only - Kevin Marks
no doubt that the most liukely place to find just about anyone is on the Facebook chat list - Dale Lature
they're trying to make sure the back end is for everybody, as everybody being available from the backend is their advantage - Jerome Hughes

Gillmor gang is on mine - Ian Waring
I'm big Feedly user - Tom Guarriello

For sure Paper will compete with FlipBoard...everyone is trying for better news...I wonder if Yahoo! built their news app in response to Paper or vice versa? - J.C. Bouvier
Feedly is great. - Alex de Soto
I only used flipboard on iPad - when my iPad was stolen, I'm finished with flip and use individual apps on iphone - Charles Carrico
Feedly is No.1 traffic source for many of the big websites. - Nir Ben Yona
Let's not go there ... - Laura Norvig
But Flipboard is visual. - Alex de Soto
@Tom, have Feedly, but never seem to have time to open it on iOS or OS X... - J.C. Bouvier
the visual aspect of Flipboard doesn't work on iPhone - screen is too small - Charles Carrico
RSS is Dead, Long Live RSS - for the consumer, it's about what flows in the pipes - Jerome Hughes
Medium will never get large - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Medium looks like a fad to me, but hey, I could be wrong - Tom Guarriello
I'd use Tumblr rather than Medium (too San Francisco-ish), - clive boulton
No mention of Super Bowl on the show - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I use Flipboard on Nexus 5 and iPhone and it works fine for me. Easy to flip those items up. Does give my thumb a workout though. And it actually works well on Windows 8 too. - Alex de Soto
I'm w/you @Moe, too long form...people see paragraphs and glaze over...'TIme to read' is helpful, if everyone reads at a Master's candidate level... - J.C. Bouvier

Yes, or rather I will be. Headed there now. - Derrick from iPhone

Sites where the comments are worth reading:
friendfeed - Katy S
Friendfeed. AV Club. Crooked Timber. At least some sports blogs (Knickerblogger, Posting and Toasting, probably more). - Andrew C (✔)
AV Club is fantastic! A little insular and you have to know some of the inside jokes and shorthand, but really good comments overall. - Jed
DAWES - Andrew C (✔)
FriendFeed, YouTube (yes, I said it), Google+, pretty much anywhere there's an 'elite' of commenters drumming the pace of their communities' interactions based on content that makes people think instead of entertain them. - Zu from AOD

What is the difference between an art "print" and a poster? I just sold a print at our garage sale, and Jeff is saying it was actually worth a lot. I didn't like it, so I don't care, but when I google
I see some that cost $200 and some that cost $20. - Laura Norvig
prints tend to be limited edition, but can also just be printed on higher quality paper with high quality ink, where everything is painstakingly recreated from the original. they're either made by the artist themselves or be a reputable company with permission to reproduce it. a poster tends to be printed on cheaper material, lower quality ink, and blemishes/color mismatches/other defects can occur with more frequency - Sir Shuping is just sir
I have seen them numbered too. A friend of mine always buys prints from a local artist. Most are limited to 200 or less copies. - Janet from FFHound!
I think this was a print, but I sold it for $5! I don't care, it just wasn't my favorite Dali. Someone gave it to us. - Laura Norvig

Mavericks Invitational | 2013/2014
Mavericks today! I'm headed out to the beach today to see waves but will be staying away from Half Moon Bay. The forecast is for 30-40 foot waves (but that'll be far from shore). - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
(live stream) - Amit Patel
Yesterday the waves were a little larger than normal, but nothing outrageous. But I don't know enough about the dynamics of Mavericks to say. - Todd Hoff
I could hear the surf pounding last night - lots of surfers going out just around Santa Cruz today. Mavericks should be awesome (but crowded - I can't deal). - Laura Norvig
Wow, the livestream is fantastic. - Laura Norvig
The waves were nice. I didn't go up to Half Moon Bay but spent some time at Pescadero and Bean Hollow. - Amit Patel
Any good pics? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Some posted in the news: ; I got distracted by birds and don't have many wave pics but I'll post them soon - Amit Patel
The dynamics of Mavericks are that you absolutely can't watch it from the beach: Way too dangerous, and heavily patrolled. They have big TV screens at a nearby inn. (Never been, don't really plan to go: the livestream is as close as you'd actually get by being there. Unless, of course, you're a Mavericks competitor or judge.) - Walt Crawford

If someone leaves a message on your work voice mail, but doesn't bother to say what it's about, do you even bother to call them back? *can't be bothered*.
Depends on who it is? - Katy S
Nobody I've ever heard of. And I get various old 800 numbers forwarded to me so I'm pretty sure it's about a project we aren't funded for any more. - Laura Norvig
It's just weird. When I leave someone a voice mail, I state the general nature of why I called. I don't just say, "This is Laura, call me at 123456." - Laura Norvig
That's how we were trained to use voice mail in 1989: leave an actual message. My father used to drive me crazy with urgent call-me messages that turned out to be about an article he'd read. Come to think of it, even after the innanet came along, he never learned to send me links ... - Mary B: #TeamMonique

So ALA is having membership problems? They need a bigger tent. Also people think SLA is successful. Nice!
supasuccess - jambina
would be insteresting to know the history of AALL, MLA, etc. in relation to ALA and SLA. i know the history of SLA because the ghost of john cotton dana came to me in a meeting. - kendrak
I was mildly amused at the year the decline started. All Hail Former President Gorman! (No, I don't REALLY think the decline is his fault; the structural problems are bigger than he is. But still. Funny.) - RepoRat
I need to parse this for ALA Membership Committee this coming Sunday - awd from Android
SLA has had it's issues, like any association, but it provided a lot of value to me back in the day. The two SLA conferences I went to were great. - Laura Norvig

Books Step Behind the Curtain of Tech's Leading Companies
"The end of 2013 brought us an unusual array of tales on technology going behind the public faces of some of technology's biggest names, including Apple, Google, Amazon and the newest $30 billion kid on the block, Twitter. So I spent a good amount of the holiday break taking in stories, with their own various embellishments, covering the challenges of building a mobile operating system at Google and Apple, the executive tug of war and pivot of Twitter, the focus on design in Jony Ive's laboratory, and how Amazon has craftily executed on its plan to become the single store for everything under the sun." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
I enjoyed Hatching Twitter even though it was ... a little sensationalist. It's the only book I've finished reading in a long time. Usually I start a book, then go be a mom, and then start another book a few weeks later. - Laura Norvig

For a typical workweek, what's the delta in time from when you get up to when you arrive at your desk? Does it vary much day to day?
For a typical workweek, what's the delta in time from when you get up to when you arrive at your desk? Does it vary much day to day?
(Video: "Remind Me" by Röyksopp, somewhat unrelated.) - Stephen Mack
an hour and a half. Nope, not much - WebGoddess
It can vary from one hour to seven hours, depending on what I have planned to do before work. - Julian
On days when I have my kids, I wake up at 6:30 and am at work at a few minutes before 9 (as long as traffic isn't terrible), so that's 2.5 hours. On days when I don't have my kids, I might get up as little as 30 minutes before the time I arrive at work. - Stephen Mack
Julian, seven hours? I guess those days you're not starting work at 9am! - Stephen Mack
Alarm clock to clock-in takes me about half an hour. There's a ten minute walk in there too. - Steel Penguin Slippy
It varies too much from day to day. - Friar Will
It was about 1.5 hours at each of the last 3 offices I was assigned. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Depends on whether the kidlet has school or not, and depends on whether I am working from home (4 days/week) or working in my office (1 day/week). On days when the kidlet doesn't have school and I'm working from home, I wake up about 15 minutes before I sit down at my desk; on days when the kidlet has school and I work from home, I wake up about 1.5 hours before I sit down at my desk;... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Monday's I work 1-9, so it is 7 hours, Tue/Wed 3 hours, Thurs/Fri 2 hours. - Alan
2.5 hours. Video date, ~30 min for shower and lunch making, and ~30 minutes to walk to work. - Eivind
Less than an hour. I love my sleep. - Kristin
2 hours from wake to work arrival. Each morning breakfast is cooked and packed for 8:30 eating. Lunch also packed, litter pans cleaned, feral cats fed, shower. 20 minutes of this is driving time. I have a well oiled system with no room for deviation. - Janet from FFHound!
30 minutes. - Not Me
About two hours. That includes 70-90 of commute. - Eric - Watch Me Now
"Get up"? You mean from sleep? - Louis Gray
It's around 3 hours now. I'm up a little before 5am. Charlie gets his inhaler treatment, both cats get fed. I either have coffee or make my green smoothie and drink 1/2 of that (the other 1/2 goes into a jar for later). A few minutes of catching up on the internets, morning ablutions, dressing, packing the backpack, getting things off their respective chargers and then out the door on the bike to the ferry. By the time I'm off the ferry and walk to the office it's 8am. - vicster: full-bodied
About an hour, most mornings. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Louis: Yes, sleep, for us mortals. In your case, whenever it is you emerge from your Dorian Gray Capsule, Mr. Gray. - Stephen Mack

2 hours, little variation - Bruce Lewis
2 hours. Only about 15 min. of that is commute. - Laura Norvig

2.5 hours, including a 50 min. commute. - Ken Morley
My schedule is almost exactly what Stephens is : Typically up at 6:45 for kids, arrive at work at 9:15. That includes ~30m of "downtime" due to difference in dropoff of 2nd grade and Pre-K. Next year might be better. :) - Steve and 4 other people
I love Royksopp … now I'm watching a bunch of their videos … wait, what was the question? - Amit Patel
Usually around three hours when I go into the office. 15 minutes when I telework. :) - Jenny H. from Android
30 minutes when i go into office 5 when telecommute - Steve C
3-5 minutes. Varies depending on whether I woke up naturally or if some husband caused noisy kitchen catastrophe woke me up. - April Russo
Two hours, three hours on days I bring Sophie to school first. - Stephan Planken
3-3.5 hours when commuting. Under an hour when WFH. - благодарю, вас так много
I just want to add, its a joy to know I'm not the only person in the world who uses the word "delta" in its algebraic sense in everyday speech. - Steel Penguin Slippy from Android

Schemer. Whenever a site I've long neglected sends me the email that they are about to shut down, I go back and see how cool it is and wish I had been using it. Did you Scheme?
I created an account but never quite understood what the site was really for. - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
Same. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I set up an account a couple years ago and was prompted by this to log in. I've done about half of the things! One was "Visit DC". And look at me now. :) - Derrick
Derrick, when I went back I was pleasantly surprised that I had done some of the things! - Laura Norvig
Only when it first launched; I haven't visited the site in a long time. I wonder if I have done any of those things? - Jenny H.

Snow days are REAL.
Perhaps it will actually snow. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
As someone who is new to snow, I'm kind of over it. All it does is cause problems and shuts everything down. - Derrick
I don't mind when it shuts things down. I mind when you have to go work anyway. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I think snow in a non winter climate would make me nuts, for that reason. Here? It's just a thing that happens. - Jenica from iPhone
DC is weird because it gets snow often enough that it should be prepared for it, but not often enough for it to be prepared for it. It's like it forgets how to handle snow every single time it does. - Zamms
DC and Baltimore always blow the snow removal budget on the first snow and then get blasted by the real thing later in the winter. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I don't doubt that snow and lots of it can be exciting for snow lovers and a bit of a pain logistically for it's detractors, but DC weather people and a lot of the residents go crazy when snow is on the horizon. It is exactly what Zamms said and I just want everyone to take a dose of cat tranquilizers. - Derrick
Ha! Maybe you can make it snow cat tranquilizers? - Jenica from iPhone
:) - Derrick
Snow is fun and a novelty for people like me living in a place where it snows once every 4-5 years for an hour. Or it's fun when you're visiting somewhere and get to see the snow, and then leave. I know I'd feel much differently if I had to live there. It's annoying and very dangerous. - Trish R
I disagree -- when you live somewhere that it snows regularly, there's nothing dangerous about it, because municipalities are appropriately prepared to clear the snow, and people don't freak out about it. It's just part of life. It's only dangerous when people get all OMGSNOWMAGEDDON about it. - Jenica
When I lived in NOVA, they closed the schools for one inch of snow because, I was told, they're in the South and it doesn't snow in the South. - Betsy
DC is SO OMGSNOWMAGEDDON about it. I guess there hasn't been much snow here since the last Snowmageddon. - Derrick
LOL Derrick -- I think DC may we worse than Atlanta! :) - LoisMarketing
I guess that shows how much I know about snow. I've been deceived into thinking these weather situations are dangerous. Nevermind. Have fun and enjoy your snow days! - Trish R
It's started! - Derrick
Enjoy! Ignore the fearmongering weather dudes! :) - Jenica
while I don't miss winters further north, I do have very sweet memories of snow days in Baltimore spent treking around in the quiet blanket of the neighborhood to gather at whomever's pad with a fireplace. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
We have some laying NE of Baltimore County with more a coming. When I was living in nyc a dozen or so years ago, we had about 12 inches of snow and my wife was shocked that they opened schools on time the next day. - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
