t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
dear writer for student newspaper: please inform me of your intention to quote me directly when asking for event information via email. I am unamused.
As a journalist, I would never consider an email to be a valid contact between me and a source, and that is what I was taught at my JC paper. - Nellie Oleson
Monique, I really want to respond to her about it. Not just to be angry, but to let her know it's poor form. If you have any suggestions for what to say, I would appreciate it. Here's the article: http://www.redandblack.com/variety... Basically, she emailed asking for info on the event... more... - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
yeah, that's basically a lie. You didn't *say* it, you *wrote* it. - Laura Norvig
And she doesn't know if Tamara actually wrote it or not. What if I was sitting at Tamara's desk answering her emails? Then it's what I "said" and not her. That's why it's not good to use it as a means of getting info from a source. - Nellie Oleson
I just bumped into one of the editors at the pub and told her the story. She is nonplussed. I'm going to send an email tomorrow based on her suggestion. This young lady needs to know she doesn't want to be doing things like this. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I've been the reporter and the source before, as well as the publicist writing the release. What she did is pretty amateurish but I'm guessing she wasn't taught any different. I'd suggest if someone requests event info again, you forward the press release and tell them to call you if they want a direct quote for attribution. ETA: or you send them straight to the media contact, if it's not you. - Corinne L

Fascinating read - WarLord
Erica used to be on Friendfeed a lot! - Laura Norvig
This is exactly what it's like to work/live in white America. It is stressful having people form ideas about you based on what they see on TV. She mentioned music--and I've mentioned it here several times--how I am supposed to know everything about white musicians, but white people have no problem saying "I don't listen to [black people music]." I've never gone as far as her; losing my... more... - Anika
I worry about these issues with Waif. A lot. And while I've experienced quite a bit of what Erica writes about, I at least had a stable black community to rely on before heading out into the working world. Waif has no such respite. I do not mean to offend anyone but white people often read their life experiences as de facto "normal" and have no conception of or interest in, what is... more... - MoTO Boychick Devil
Brave piece. If you ever get a chance to hang out with Erica, do it. She's a wonderful person. - Stephen Mack
That was a good read indeed. But sometimes, you gotta do something yourself if you want people to respect you and take you serious. I have been a minority in a different country and culture and can relate to what she says, but I also did manage to be more serious than my colleagues. It's a big challenge, requires a lot of stubbornness, but still doable. - الک‌ دخت
again, B nails it. "I owe you the respect to accept your life experience as valid" all the time, to everyone. it stuns me how otherwise intelligent and thoughtful people fail to grasp this essential concept. it is how I endeavor to live and I am never sorry for it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Excellent piece. - Corinne L

Sophie's on Stephen's YouTube account again... :) - Ken Gidley
Gahhh - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I love this little view into her favorite videos! - Laura Norvig
I remember this ad! - Melly
What the ad doesn't show: how difficult it is to change Barbie out of her spandex leotard into other clothes. You want to teach a little girl how to curse? Have her put tights or jeans on a Barbie doll by herself. Do not ask me how I know this. - Corinne L

Five years later, I still point people to the FriendFeed changelog as an example of best practices for transparency. http://changelog.friendfeed.com/
"Description: too tired to finish this right now" lol - Brent Schaus
^ Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
"steampunk tweaks from kevin" - Steve C, Team Marina
"Because I have to stop working now, computer is going away :(" - L'Andre
That is strangely fascinating - Laura Norvig from iPhone
That changelog is a beautiful thing. - Sean McBride
So....Friendfeed hasn't changed since 2009? - Shey
@Shey the people have all gotten much better! - Louis Gray
Thanks for sharing Louis; what a blast to the past. Really fun glancing over those logs. - Benjamin Golub
"handle pickle errors" - Laura Norvig
I wonder if I could find the change they had to make to deal with me. - Brian Johns
Ben, I figured it was a real thing and not, you know, somebody dribbling pickle juice on a server. - Laura Norvig

Really missing #internetlibrarian - Love Monterey this time of year and my library peeps. #notalibrariananymore
This is the first year I didn't go down to at least lobbycon. Feels so weird. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Inspired by Betsy and Vicster, I am going to try growing out my grays for a few months and see how it looks. Pray for me.
grays? what grays?? you haz no grays! - Sir Shuping is just sir
i guess t-ra is breeding aliens in her secret base under the Arctic ocean? - Big Joe Silence
I wish I had the pretty gray Vic has. I have more of a mustard yuk gray. :( - Janet from FFHound!
I just wish I was going to get to go gray! my hair is going *poof* like the wind - Sir Shuping is just sir
I have no idea what it will look like. I just realized I don't even know what my own hair is anymore and that bothered me. So we're gonna find out. No downside really, since I can just dye it again if I'm not ready to rock it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Between this post and the pilot light success story, I am in awe of you today. - Corinne L
I don't know if this account is public, but if you can see this, a friend just went through this and looks so fantastic. Very Jamie Lee Curtis https://www.facebook.com/photo... - Laura Norvig
Laura, I can't see the link, but your gorgeous silver is definitely one of my muses for this experiment. ;) - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I have embraced my gray. - Jenny H. from Android

My conclusion after using Inbox for several days: After using e-mail for 28 years, I do not wish to completely transform my e-mail workflow.
I think I'd feel the same way. - Tamara J. B.
I find it interesting that Google is still trying to reinvent something which has become in so many ways a footnote in Internet history. I don’t know many people who rely primarily on e-mail to communicate outside of their jobs, really. - Akiva
Lucky! How did you get it, Stephen? - Louis Gray
^ hehe, very funny. - Stephen Mack
If I was on mobile a lot I think I could really get used to it and appreciate it. I heard Leo Laporte say it was the first time he got to Inbox Zero ever and he loves it. But it's not really Inbox Zero, it just looks like it. I think that's the appeal. On laptop/desktop it doesn't make much sense at all. - Laura Norvig
+1 Laura. It seems like sweep is just a more polite word for delete. - Todd Hoff
The bundling is pretty good, though. Today I have: 25+ Updates, 25+ Promos, 25+ Social, 25+ Forums, 25+ Finance. NO REAL MAIL. Thanks for pointing out I have no real friends, Gmail. - Laura Norvig
Hasn't social conversation largely moved to social networks and away from email? - Todd Hoff
OK phew. I'm glad I'm not the only one who really isn't all that taken with Inbox. I want to like it more. I just...don't. Hoping that changes over time. - Hookuh Tinypants
For fine-grain control, manually setting up filters is best via the regular gmail web interface. However, for rapid consumption (and reduction to zero inbox), it seems Inbox is like a hack saw, suitable as mobile app. Thinking of a pin as another sort of star with snooze function appear useful. As for reminders: there are those generated by Gmail tasks, Keep, Google Now ("remind me to... more... - Adriano
Not me, Cristo. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I would love to try Slack but I work with a bunch of dinosaur luddites. Well, about 75-80% of my team. - Laura Norvig
We use Slack where I work. It's pretty cool. Got a friend of mine that's working on a dedicated Slack client for Windows, that can be minimized to the tray, so you don't have to keep it open in a browser tab. http://www.donationcoder.com/forum... - April Russo
We just adopted Slack. We like it. Integrates nicely with Jira. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Since 2004, I use a lot of filters (rules) and labels (folders), so my Gmail is almost self-sufficient :-) - Red Label
Laura Norvig
Anybody still need an Inbox invite?
yes, if you have one? I can't seem to send you a direct message to send my email - LibrarianOnTheLoose
ooh, can you send one to my friend OJ please? odotjdot@gmail.com - Nellie Oleson
If you have one I'd love one, pretty please! vicstermail at gmail, etc. - Half Pint
Yes! To warmaiden at gmail? - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Yes, please. bentley at umich.edu - bentley
Yes, please. spidra at gmail - Spidra Webster
Ok, what is this inbox thing? - Jen
OK, that went really fast - by the time I saw this I only had two left. Vicster and Warmaiden, you're in - hopefully you will get some invites yourself to pass along. I will update if I get anymore. (Sorry, Monique - first line Friendfeeders trumped your FOAF.) And Jason, I didn't have your email handy ... - Laura Norvig
Thanks, Laura! I'll check this thread if/when I get invites and pay it forward. :-) - Half Pint

Gillmor Gang Thursday 10.30.14 LIVE recording at 9am PT/12pm ET http://ustream.tv/GillmorGang
Hello Gillmor Gangers! - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm barely up. Did someone win the World Series last night? :-) - Robert Scoble
morning - Kevin Marks
Yo. - J.C. Bouvier
so john and steve are across the road from scoble? - Kevin Marks
Yeah. - Robert Scoble
FB FY 15 CapEx anyone? - J.C. Bouvier
yay - Keith Teare
@Robert? if you had to pick only one newsreader app today, which would you pick? - J.C. Bouvier
Flipboard is adding 250K users a day? - J.C. Bouvier
what are the world series? - Jan Winter
I'm w/you Keith...I love the interface...my fear, and I think Flipboard's biggest problem is getting me to trust I'm not going to miss something...I shouldn't have to feel like I'm making a leap of faith when I use it. - J.C. Bouvier
can we get the TechCrunch show link into chat? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Right below my Friendfeed Feed is the interview with Scoble's cofounders! - John Taschek
Apple totally missed the boat on Newsstand...it's a bummer...I thought for sure they would release an magazine authoring tool and much better subscription integration...instead we got iBooks...I did notice they have included an ePub export from the new Pages now...maybe it's coming on that roadmap... - J.C. Bouvier
Hello gents... - Patrick Culleton
twitter lists aggregated via parper.li works fine for me - Jan Winter
dog photos is about all I post to facebook - Kevin Marks
I agree with Robert. I followed his instruction about FB lists.. and yes my feed became a lot better... - Patrick Culleton
+1 @Kevin Marks - Frank Paynter
Yep; lists work for Facebook. Would be interesting to see/change the +/- controls directly on each list but I'll leave it to Facebook to tune for now - Ian McGee
I agree with Kevin - when I read news, I read for highly accessible content and depth plus a bunch of scanning-type articles. Curation can potentially work against how I work -- Curation used to be for me, leisurely Sunday reading and for airplanes. - John Taschek
J.C. I would choose Flipboard because it brings nearly everything in (except for Ello). - Robert Scoble
Gotcha, tx Robert. - J.C. Bouvier
hyper-personalized culture means less flexible thinking. Surrounding yourself with others who think like you (your friends) and elevating that collective voice means less growth & learning. - Ann Greenberg
<3 cents per user - Jan Winter
What does the "gang" think of MS' move to release apps and tech that runs on all three OS platforms? - Patrick Culleton
RE: Kramer: ha ha...I haven't listened to their earnings call...but I will now...from an SMB online buyer perspective, and I've spent ~ $350K in Facebook - the ad tool/unit is still too complicated - and frankly the burn rate for dollars against that unit is too costly...I think I burned through $5k in side of half a day...they need a lower cost ad unit that produces a better ROI for... more... - J.C. Bouvier
Any views on ads in your Instagram feed starting now ? - Patrick Culleton
iPhone 6+ eating the iPad - Kevin Marks
Patrick: that's smart. - Robert Scoble
But I don't know that it will matter. Will an iOS developer switch from Apple's tools to Microsoft's? I doubt it. - Robert Scoble
Google is doing a great job of getting it's users to do it's OCR for it: their Captchas are now streetview address numbers. - Simon Tennant
Mobile eating the world - http://www.slideshare.net/a16z... - John Taschek
Who would know when you are banned everywhere in Dave Winers World...:( - Tony Stanislawski
I'm blocked by Winer on twitter too - Kevin Marks
I feel better Thanks Kevin..nice being in good company! - Tony Stanislawski
Dave pushes his articles out through social channels as well; Facebook, Twitter etc. - Ian McGee
sounds like you guys need a support group ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Ha ha. - J.C. Bouvier
I have no respect for him anymore with his ban hammer! He was a great one, who is now a has been - Tony Stanislawski
He unblocked me, but it cost him. - Robert Scoble
I'm w/you Steve, I think Facebook is doing it... - J.C. Bouvier
I think withknown.com has a coherent way to combine the different post types and share them out too - Kevin Marks
apparently Steve and John do not share a room. Good to know ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
just trying to make you guys laugh a little - Tina Chase Gillmor
manipulative directing ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
LOL. One day I was interacting with him on both Facebook and Twitter, the next day I was banned. - Tony Stanislawski
getting stream dropouts here - Kevin Marks
and why? - Tina Chase Gillmor
finally get to join again... freaking hectic with my startup - Jerry Schuman
lost you - Kevin Marks
Was some talk about Facebook wanting to push publishers to post their content directly to Facebook hosted pages w/Facebook revenue sharing w/those that do...anyone catch that one? Saw it in the NYTimes I think... - J.C. Bouvier
bummed I couldn't get out to Half Moon Bay Ritz while I was up there so I could get Robert toasted. - Jerry Schuman
call dropped - Kevin Marks
Dave Winer 3.0 - Jerry Schuman
his next announcement will be he's bringing back an outliner based on Instagram - Jerry Schuman
sorry.. had to be snarky about Dave - Jerry Schuman
Heyyyy, it's not Friday! Glad I found you today. It kinda feels like Friday - Laura Norvig
Jerry: you should come over. Gonna be a couple of weeks before I'm back at Ritz after lunch today, though. - Robert Scoble
had to fly back to LA this morning... we were just up for a Siemens venture event for my company PingThings - Jerry Schuman
Next time though... I'll be back up at some point in the near future - Jerry Schuman
ok John - Tina Chase Gillmor
Steve - John waved off - Tina Chase Gillmor
Nice.. headphones that give you scalp massages - Jerry Schuman
I'm off - Kevin Marks
how is the outside leakage... ie... I listen really loud music... will my seat mate on a plane get pissed? - Jerry Schuman
Jerry: not bad. - Robert Scoble
I'll have to go check those out.... it's the one feature that they really don't talk about. - Jerry Schuman
Nice to catch you guys...have a great weekend... - J.C. Bouvier
Thanks everyone! - Robert Scoble
Good show - Ian McGee
Glad to see and chat with everyone again... been awhile for me - Jerry Schuman
Steve and his self deprecation.... - Jerry Schuman
Thanks for another good show... - Frank Paynter
Hi Tina... bye Tina... hope you're all doing well. - Jerry Schuman
Dog Photos! Srsly Kevin nailed Facebook Big Blue for the majority. - clive boulton

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

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. https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Laura Norvig

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 - Let Me Know
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! - Prairie & I Know It
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: http://www.eonline.com/photos... 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. http://imgur.com/a/0HQDf#0 (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

Apple SIM dead cuz VZW and AT&T say No - Da
Nice one Moe. - Zachary Grant
Its an optical implementation of continuity, a way of moving a deep link across devices, and apps so long as they can render images. Feels clunky to me. - Simon Benvenutto
there is a room for all of Scoble blocked FB people...:) - Tony Stanislawski

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

i just started using pinterest a little bit recently - Chris Hale

it would destroy flipboards credibility in my eyes. - Chris Hale
I do have an invite to Inbox first email posted gets it - Tony Stanislawski

tina@gillmor.com - Tina Chase Gillmor
John: yes. Flipboard's founders will be here in an hour. It is MASSIVE. - Robert Scoble

Sent Tina! - Tony Stanislawski
I applied, Robert. - Tom Guarriello
Got another for anyone that wants one - Tony Stanislawski

Human curation vs. machine curation is still an epic battle. I vote for humans. - Laura Norvig
Flipboard is the only App that creates relative Display Advertising that feels supplementary - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chris: Flipboard is moving toward machine learning, with human help. - Robert Scoble

One of Twitters issues is onboarding... - Tony Stanislawski
I helps me to aspire to be scobleesque in curating tech news people might care about - Chris Hale
like Twitter groups - Tina Chase Gillmor
A master of curating content about curation = http://curation.masternewmedia.org/ - Laura Norvig
Machine learning will win, algorithms for the most important news should be fairly easy. The obstacles now are the content creators and the economics of paywalls - John Taschek
Touch ID + 1 Password in iOS8.1 = Big win - Tom Guarriello
Anybody else lost video feed? - Darren James
@Tom, why do you like it? - Chris Hale
I use lastpass with two factor auth. I used to have 1password - Chris Hale

Ok in London Darren - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Got to run...Good show! Have a good weekend! Go Giant for my SFO friends... - Tony Stanislawski

Deep learning, for sure, Dan. - Tom Guarriello
I use Google Calendar for everything -- but I try many.. Like Sunrise, Cal, etc. and eventually I don't find the value of a non-integrated solution. - John Taschek
Inbox looks great - it's perfect for what I do. In fact, it does what I do without me having to do it. - John Taschek
Google X is becoming Skynet - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Emotion recognition engines... - Tom Guarriello
Has anyone read Superintelligence by Nick Bostrom? Wow! - Tom Guarriello
Well, the missing link i am looking for is a decent service i can use to tell people publicly my availability so they can schedule time with me - Chris Hale
You can publish Google calendars - John Taschek
calendly does a decent job but 10 bucks a month is a little more expensive than i feel its worth. - Chris Hale
John. I might have to dig into my google calendar a little deeper. - Chris Hale
Thank you guys for your insight on that - Chris Hale
How do I get into that Room????? - Francine Hardaway

Melly
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. - Half Pint
I just love that y'all use the word "cheeky"! - Laura Norvig
I informed his teacher of the punishment. She approved. - Melly
Aaron the Librarian
Academic Librarians - Are you following YikYak?
? clearly not... - ellbeecee
what the heck is yikyak? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Who in the what now? - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
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: http://nymag.com/thecut... 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
Tl;dr me about this, please? - Marie
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
Merci - Marie from iPhone
I can't even handle monitoring mentions on Twitter, I'm pretty sure this will kill me. - Meg VMeg
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
But you're being creepy anonymously, so nobody knows it's you specifically. ;) - kaijsa
If you want to know when people are having sex in the library, there's an app for that - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Took a look. Not going back. - John Jackson from iPhone
I look at it occasionally. I'd check it more if it had a search function so I could search for library mentions...unless it does, and I just don't realize it. - YvonneM
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
Well, you know, I'm so basic I am down with any joke made at the expense of a pumpkin spice latte. - laura x
Tried it. Not big here. Picked up only stuff from international schools. - aaron from Flucso

Waiting for your Santa's Village #saturdayff, Stephen!
Heh, sorry -- been up at Hardly Strictly, now off to a friend's birthday. It'll be a late SaturdayFF -- maybe Monday night. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oops, got too busy with work last night. But I'll get around to this! - Stephen Mack
The story is as mythical as Santa himself. :) - Ken Gidley
I was going to write it up today but my head hurts. Another time! - Stephen Mack
There will always be more Saturdays! - Laura Norvig from iPhone
*cough* - Laura Norvig
Laura Norvig
Because my loan is in underwriting right now, and they know we will have to file our 2013 taxes by Oct. 15th, I have to take my paper return into an IRS office and get it stamped and get a copy of it. Yeah, I know, first world problems. I will be missing a day of Dreamforce to do this. Hopefully just half a day. Unknown.
Actually, could be really good I'm going to SF office instead of San Jose, though http://www.yelp.com/biz... - Laura Norvig
Laura Norvig
Ugh, feeling weird. I need to perk up.
Stayed home from an annual gathering for the first time in about 16 years to get things done ... didn't get much done yet. - Laura Norvig
On the positive side: relaxing, doing laundry, writing lists of what needs to be done to the house and to prepare for moving, researching termite companies. Plus, I think I connected with an awesome person to help with all of it. - Laura Norvig
OK, Benefit brow bar is open till 8 - I should get off my butt and get waxed. (to clarify, not waxing my butt ... waxing my brows). - Laura Norvig
Ok now that's cute and funny as hell - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
inside joke ... - Laura Norvig
t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
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 Boychick Devil 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
consternation and chastening from introducing yourself? That set off some alarm bells in my head.... I'm glad the rest of it seems good though - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
No coffee??? Run away. - Laura Norvig
What Rudi said. But I'm glad you're feeling good anyway. - Spidra Webster
Now that I've got week one out of the way, I can start thinking about getting comfortable. Coffee stash, attitude adjustment strategies, earphones, y'know stuff people in offices have that I forgot about. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Venmo: A case study on why e-mail verification is absolutely required by any web site with account creation - http://www.zeigen.com/blog...
[Screenshot of Venmo's cancellation screen]
Excerpt: "It’s not so much that I’m 'dissatisfied' with your 'free service' as I am completely mortified at how horrifically terrible your security practices are." - Stephen Mack
They kept writing "free" as if it's a get out of jail free card. Also, Attention World: Don't mess with the Zeigen. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Heh, thanks Micah. - Stephen Mack
Weird, Venmo just came on my radar today because of this post http://qz.com/277509... - Laura Norvig

Got up in time, but it was cloudy :( - Glen Campbell
gorgeous! where do you archive most of your work, Amit? Do you have a smugmug or flickr account you use? Or picasa ...? - Laura Norvig
Laura: I am on flickr and 500px — http://www.flickr.com/photos... https://500px.com/amitp — but I try to share photos with my friends on FriendFeed first :-) - Amit Patel
For example the northern harrier I took on Sep 28, shared with FF on Sep 30, and put on flickr on Oct 8. I don't interact with the flickr or 500px communities much :( - Amit Patel
We're happy to see your photos here. :) - Anne Bouey
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
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray

"Some infinities are bigger than other infinities." - Laura Norvig from iPhone

I want to live life, instead of life living me. Do you know what I mean?
I am having the same thought. - Stephan from iPhone
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
Took myself out for a snack and a drink overlooking the yacht harbor. Baby steps. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
