Amit Patel
Went to Edward Tufte's visualization class today. On one of the handouts, guess who was mentioned? Woot!
Congrats. - Sean McBride
Nice! - imabonehead
Those are amazing. You are smart. You make things go. - Laura Norvig
Just for those that don't know. Bret & Amit aren't one and the same, at least from the images and talks I've seen of them. Both are awesome. If they are one and that same, they are super super awesome. - NOT THE CRICKET
I met Bret for the first time this week, so I'm pretty sure he and I are not the same person. I have very few pictures or videos of me online. Louis Gray posted one of the very few. - Amit Patel
Nice, Amit! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Steve Gillmor
GIllmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PT participate at

Hey Tina, Happy Mother's Day. I'm going to be up there next week for my bday and want to have some friends come by the Ritz on Friday PM for a drink. (Not on the order of Scoble's benders, though.) Anyone I know from the area is welcome. Ritz bar 5:30 - Francine Hardaway
Cool. Say hi to Miko! - Robert Scoble

Hey Tina, I'm finally here while the show is live! This is exciting! - Jeff Grosse
whoa, the stream is embedded in my tweet - Kevin Marks
Hi Jeff Grosse - Tina Chase Gillmor
welcome - Tina Chase Gillmor
Thank you - Jeff Grosse
Tim Cook wants to say to the world: "iBeats Google." - Alex de Soto
+1 Alex - Charlie Isaacs
Beats would improve iTunes and iRadio to deliver curated music in the "Age of Context" and wearables. Shuffle on iWatch would suck. - Alex de Soto
Beats is a youth brand - Tom Guarriello
Doesn't FB do private (invite-only) converations this already? I regularly participate in a 4000 member private facebook group. - Murray Macdonald
I have a set - Francine Hardaway
Francine - I will be there! but a reminder will help ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I've got some, but they're not as good as the price would assume - Jeff Grosse
They are shit but they look pretty - Francine Hardaway
there are nicer headphones - Kevin Marks
as Scoble would say... it sends a signal - Tina Chase Gillmor
And they are widely available. - christina sponselli
Spotify beats Beats - Da from Android
Popular with some pro athletes, too. - christina sponselli
Red is the new White! - Alex de Soto
My Bose are nicer - Francine Hardaway
Rumor is that Apple is going to crush the Beats product line and create Borscht - Charlie Isaacs
Def a fashion statement vs.a high quality audiophile collectible... - J.C. Bouvier
christina: they are getting paid to wear them and they get TONS of free ones. - Robert Scoble
Hey Josh, call your gang and endeavour your show please... - flyinthesoup
Mine early version broke, battery not replaceable, they said they would replace, but they never followed up, got to call them again. - Arnie Klaus
Robert, true but they wear them and kids follow suit. - christina sponselli
Francine: RedBull sells $2 billion of a crappy product using the same techniques. - Robert Scoble
Worth watching today: Jimmy Iovine's video interview with Mossberg from 2/13/2013: It's not about the headsets. - Alex de Soto
christina: right. It's celebrity tying. Beats does it better than anyone. - Robert Scoble
I agree Robert - Francine Hardaway
Bob Lefsetz... - J.C. Bouvier
Dre's video definitely makes it look like he thinks it's real - Tom Guarriello
I +LOVE+ Bob Lefsetz. - Robert Scoble
+100 Tom... - J.C. Bouvier
desperate Apple move since its cloud offerings suck - Da from Android
Beats does NOT suck. - Robert Scoble
(THe streaming service) - Robert Scoble
tell that to HTC - Da from Android
Haven't tried the streaming service - Francine Hardaway
Beats reminds me of the old IBM sarcastic slogans "You can buy smaller but you can't buy more expensive." Oh wait, maybe that was Bose. - Charlie Isaacs
Could they have future products and services which impressed Apple - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Sennheiser FTW - Kevin Marks
RE: Lefsetz Robert, + 100. He can be hit or miss, but you gotta love him. - J.C. Bouvier
I have Sennheiser ear buds. They are quite good - Francine Hardaway
only the best for Francine - Tina Chase Gillmor
I vouch for X11i Klipsch ear buds. - Alex de Soto
Apple wants exclusive access to Iovine and Dr. Dre, as well as a platform and name upon which to build a better music streaming service. Beats is a faddy product right now, but with incredible margins. - Thomas Rector
nothing sounds very good if you're neil young 'cos your hearing is shot from standing in front of amps for 40 years - Kevin Marks
The Beats buy, if true, does set Tim Cook apart as CEO, this isn't a move I think SJ would have made...but how do they incorporate the brand into the Apple mothership? Beats by Apple? Or just a independent subsidiary? - J.C. Bouvier
Wearables: headphones are wearables, perhaps more functions could be built into headphones - Charles Carrico
Over the next few years , Apple will have an iTunes Streaming Business. Think Spotify mixed with Netflix - Moe Glitz from iPhone
OMG I can live without my iPad - Tina Chase Gillmor
Steve, once again you are thinking like a 65 year old man. Millennials drive this segment of the business, and sound quality is not the anchor it is to us. - Thomas Rector
I was curious if I would notice the difference on my Pono when I get it because I'm so old - Francine Hardaway
meant can't - Tina Chase Gillmor
SJ wouldn't have needed to do this deal because he could do the media biz brinkmanship negotiation - Kevin Marks
I've knda given up on my iPad. I use my MacBook Air and my phone - Francine Hardaway
the phone has eaten the use case - Kevin Marks
phone too small for all that i want to do - Tina Chase Gillmor
Headphones as wearables are a good thought. We already wear them - Francine Hardaway
iphones are too small, yes - Kevin Marks
that will change - Kevin Marks
If you travel on a plane these days, iPad is completely the way to go. Laptop is too big - Jeff Grosse
I love the large phone form-factor for simple apps, and a 4K desktop monitor for coding and browsing. Laptop is an awkward middleground. - Murray Macdonald
nexus 7 - Kevin Marks
oh. the old on the plane fashionable context...come on - flyinthesoup
See lots of tablets in meetings w/ colleagues. - christina sponselli
I do use a tablet on the plane. But don't spend my life on planes - Francine Hardaway
Francine Hardaway: thankyou for noticing my comment - look at all the space inside an earphone for processors etc.. which won't fit into a watch - Charles Carrico
If and when I wear an iWatch, it would be cool to turn on iRadio with one touch and get a good context-sensitive playlist. That's what Beats Music will do. - Alex de Soto
On the plane, I've got everything I need with Evernote and Boxer on the iPad. I can actually be productive. (and listen to Spotify) - Jeff Grosse
but I can put the "classic" iPad in my handbag - Tina Chase Gillmor
Fix it 3 years later... - Murray Macdonald
tablet is dead, long live the Galaxy Note 4 - Da from Android
tablet is not dead - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tablets are for indoors and Smartphones are for on the go - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Are tablet sales declining? - christina sponselli
ipad sales are relatively to phones - Kevin Marks
christina: iPad sales are declining - Charles Carrico
MBPr, iPad Mini, iPhone 5S and I use all three, but the first one I'd give up would be the iPad... - J.C. Bouvier
yes, right - Tina Chase Gillmor
Josh or Steve, do you have a link to this article? - J.C. Bouvier
Lock screens are insecure. Push notifications often show password reminders, etc... - Murray Macdonald
Oh, man, Josh is gonna be on GG a lot...push notifications! If he says the word, "track" Steve will adopt him! - Tom Guarriello
Murray: really? I have never seen a password notification come through. - Robert Scoble
devastated that Scoble doesn't care about each of my airport check-ins :( - Charlie Isaacs
i was just kidding - Charlie Isaacs
No. ask benedict apple stats evans how much @christina - flyinthesoup
I like Josh! Congrats on getting him on the show Steve and Tina! - Robert Scoble
+1 on Josh - Charlie Isaacs
Just downloaded Beats Music. Very cool service - Francine Hardaway
Apple Notifications can't be controlled by developers like android. Beacon apps can't remove notifications. - Murray Macdonald
And I love the push notifications on my Nexus 5 - Francine Hardaway
Steve has a cloud on his back ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
and you can do alternative lockscreens - Kevin Marks
Robert Scoble: do you see the purchase of Beats as a chance to expand wearable processes into Headphones - more space for processors inside headphones - Charles Carrico
Steve is such a fan boy. - Murray Macdonald
Android has many advantages - Francine Hardaway
thats what they do with the cows at salesforce - flyinthesoup
Or toward Google Now - Francine Hardaway
Charles: hmm, having Beats associated with the new iWatch makes a LOT of sense! - Robert Scoble
That would be cool. Headphones and health apps - Francine Hardaway
Josh, android is way worse in tools and waay better in possibilities - flyinthesoup
PhoneGap/HTML5 lets you do both quickly. The cubedfm guys noted that Apple is moving to HTML5 apps with their wearables. - Murray Macdonald
Robert: yes I agree - I think music is not what its really about - headphone is a great wearable - Charles Carrico
facebook home is now "cover feed" - Kevin Marks
Bingo. Apple wants the iWatch to have a good streaming service, and not lose control to Spotify or Pandora. - Thomas Rector
which is not too bad - Kevin Marks
I saw something about health apps and headphones this week, Francine. Sounds fertile. - Tom Guarriello
though cover feed really messes up instagram pics - Kevin Marks
Seriously, if people are used to wearing HUGE headphones my guess is that Apple is going to shrink the audio electronics (see Moore's Law) and cram more bio-related and app-related functionality into the headphone and it will be a super-device - Charlie Isaacs
We need new wearables. These trackers suck - Francine Hardaway
Tom Guarriello: yes - so close to the brain and bloodstream - can pick up health signals - Charles Carrico
the 'headphones as health monitor' fake story from secret? - Kevin Marks
Was just thinking Charles about what you can pick up from the ears - Francine Hardaway
Facebook wants to be a modern portal built for Mobile - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Yes, Charles, that's what I read. Brain wave reader. Slightly Clockwork Orange, but, hey... - Tom Guarriello
Didn't see that on Secret Kevin. Why fake? - Francine Hardaway
Beats headphones will have so many health connections built in that they'll be covered by Obamacare. - Thomas Rector
Zuckerberg is like Andy Grove. He's always looking over his shoulder to see who is coming to disrupt him - Francine Hardaway
I think this was the post from Josh at that your referred to Steve? - J.C. Bouvier
health monitor might be a "fake" - but think about these things so close to your head - there must be some signals that can be acquired - temperature, Perhaps heartbeat - Charles Carrico
The last half of this podcast is insightful. - Murray Macdonald
Francine Hardaway: what signals can be acquired from the ears? heartbeat? temperature??? - Charles Carrico
Regex provide wildcard Pattern Matching within text. - Murray Macdonald
Walk into a location with iBeacons and bingo...connect to cool playlist(s) via Beats Music depending on the context. At the beach, at the gym, etc. - Alex de Soto
Temperature for sure. Heartbeat perhaps - Francine Hardaway
the headphones might be a better way to pick up voice also - Charles Carrico
brainwave activity - Kevin Marks
has Robert quit drinking? - Tina Chase Gillmor
For sure - Francine Hardaway
Developers and Tech media may get a hard on with what Zuckerberg says. But normal folks will abandon the Facebook Mothership if Facebook changes their flavour. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Mostly have quit drinking - Robert Scoble
Latest YPulse Facebook data - Tom Guarriello
iMessage is a pain in the ass when you are on Android. Right. I use FB Messenger now - Francine Hardaway
Steve. Come to terms with Apple being #2. - Murray Macdonald
FB Messenger and Pages are both very helpful to me - Tom Guarriello
iMessage is a pain in the arse even when you have a mixture. I only get iMessages on my mac - Kevin Marks
Facebook has too much advertising - someone can come along and kick them aside - Charles Carrico
Charles TOTALLY disagree. - Robert Scoble
Just seen on Facebook that the GG is on. Notifications... :-( - Ian Waring
Robert: are you going to start the Facebook Killer - Charles Carrico
Charles: no. - Robert Scoble
I am quite satisfied with FB. It does everything I need. And everyone's there - Francine Hardaway
In my life it's an underlying directory - Francine Hardaway
I've started to see that many of what I thought were FB problems were really limitations of my user behavior. - Tom Guarriello
+francine there will be low power embedded bio devices so it won't matter if they are in the head region... they will communicate with a "master" device and those can be headphones or any other wearable - Charlie Isaacs
Same goes for iBeacons. Apple needs an app to set monitoring for each beacon before it is encountered. Android lets you detect beacons then decide what (if anything) to do. - Murray Macdonald
I am dissatisfied with FB - can't wait to leave and find something that doesn't kill me with large ads that look like private input - Charles Carrico
Right Tom. - Francine Hardaway
Charles, ever app is now monetizing with ads. At some point they have to make money - Francine Hardaway
My apple friends recently moved to hangouts to accommodate friends - Murray Macdonald
Francine: Google's ads are not intrusive and they make a lot of money - Charles Carrico
Apple have been lazy in pushing both iMessage and FaceTime out to Android - Moe Glitz from iPhone
heard that verizon and at&t were sending user demographics and travel distances to stadium owners. Beacons just a variation on the same theme - Ian Waring
BTW, this is a great Gang episode - Tom Guarriello
Non geeks are all on iMessage because they don't know it's not texting - Francine Hardaway
except that it cocks up SMS - Kevin Marks
agree Tom ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
great conversation here - Charlie Isaacs
True that, Tom G. This is one of the best GG I have heard in some time. It has content and smart discussion. - Thomas Rector
ios people use iMessage and then find it can't talk to android users - Kevin Marks
Last year a total of 2.9 million Chrome OS-powered computers were shipped, according to the tech consultancy Gartner. That was a fraction of the 280 million Windows-powered PC and the 12.5 million Mac OS computers delivered to retailers and customers. But by 2016, Gartner forecasts that computers running Google's ChromeOS will have leapfrogged Apple's hardware to take second place behind Microsoft's ecosystem. - Murray Macdonald
Correct, Kevin. - Francine Hardaway
and then Android users use Hangouts to try to send an SMS, and find it's emailed an invite to initiate a video call! - Ian Waring
Yep.. Ian, but that's APple's problem. Eventually they will need to talk to Android - Francine Hardaway
Being able to type text replies via iMessage on the MBPr is huge... - J.C. Bouvier
Josh brings a much needed "cute" quotient to he's really smart and seems nice, too. - Tina Chase Gillmor
More like a hottie quotient - Francine Hardaway
hm FB Messenger asks for access to SMS on android but can't use it. Hangouts supports both - Kevin Marks
Can't we get some cute, hottie females on GG?? ;) (Sorry, Tina! You're off camera most times...) - Tom Guarriello
Tina, let's make ourselves visible:-) - Francine Hardaway
is Laura Fitton still the only woman we've had on? - Kevin Marks
Oh Josh, I feel so much like that. I love Twitter - Francine Hardaway
this is the only podcast for old men since "Cranky Geeks" folded - Charles Carrico
People said the same of ICQ. They seem to come and go. - Murray Macdonald
Where is the ChromeOS tablet? - Ian Waring
If Twitter disappeared it would be a major loss to me - Tom Guarriello
people have had chromeos running on android tablets - Kevin Marks
chrome on android is good though - Kevin Marks
Yea, Robert, X1 is nice but not gamechanger - Tom Guarriello
send off the internet balloons and satellites - Arnie Klaus
more women are needed everywhere, agreed - Tina Chase Gillmor
Technically yes, but wonder if Google will try to reign in the non Play Android tablets. - Ian Waring
I do like the X1 four at a time recording capability. - Tom Guarriello
Sports are the only thing I watch live - Murray Macdonald
YouTube could have bought the olympics - Kevin Marks
tom - we just got that and do like it v much - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Kevin, what do you mean by "chromeos running on android" ? internally ? - flyinthesoup
Chromebook tablets kinda exist. - Murray Macdonald
it's his fault, not his problme - Kevin Marks
Everyone loves to text. But in regards to a Lifestyle Ticker being stuck on everyone's Lock Screen, people need a Twitter type of Messaging Service alongside their normal friends and family messages. But as most people don't understand Twitter, there is a huge opportunity for another Company to be your Lifestyle Ticker - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Nice not to have to worry about DVR recording limitations, Tina. - Tom Guarriello
Dont like comcast on demand move to no fast forward - Dale Lature from Android
we should only be worried if Google starts laying high speed cable everywhere; oh wait, never mind - Charlie Isaacs
Pointcast, Moe? - Francine Hardaway
so looking forward to that - Kevin Marks
I find myself watching YouTube more than Netflix - because I've gone through all of Netflix's classic content - and I'm not interested in TV sitcoms - Charles Carrico
I screwed up recording of my wife's "Call the Midwife" episode (tried to record 5 shows at the same time on X1). Thankfully, it was available On Demand. Too many good shows on Sunday! - Alex de Soto looks neat... Jeff Attwood and co - Ian Waring
comcast also can't pause live tv like Dish can. I was surprised to see that! - Laura Norvig
I now imagine a boombox on a watch - Kevin Marks
Laura: really? It pauses on my DVR Comcast. - Robert Scoble
Which women, specifically, would you like to hear from on GG or similar (hint, hint)? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think you can pause live on main unit, Laura - Tom Guarriello
huh, what am I doing wrong? will check it out. just switched to the evil xfinity triple play recently. not loving it. - Laura Norvig
Anyone seen: - looks like 5 out of the 6 major cable/ISPs are stalling at peer points. Welcome to Comcast Time Warner! - Ian Waring
Tina: Kara Swisher, Sarah Lacy - Francine Hardaway
I'm a triple play customer Laura and it's as good as anything I've found - Tom Guarriello
Laura: make sure you have latest DVR from comcast - Robert Scoble
Jessica Lessin - Francine Hardaway
Tina: Liz Gannes, Marques Brownlee - christina sponselli
Marques is not a woman:-) - Francine Hardaway
Good Show - Thanks - Charles Carrico

Great show - Francine Hardaway
Excellent show. Happy Mother's Day! - Alex de Soto
+10 Gang - Tom Guarriello

It's from 1997 Moe. Was just kidding - Francine Hardaway
a kinder, gentler show ... less knockdown, drag out fights *cough* jason calacanis *cough* ... means more time for talking! - Laura Norvig

Gina Bianchini - Tom Guarriello

Thanks! - Robert Scoble

Dear makers of Thomas trainwreck videos, thank you. We love you. Sincerely, Laura and Toddler X.
The ones with "Accidents Happen" as the soundtrack? zomg J loves those. LOVES. THEM. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yup. Genius. Pure genius. - laura x from iPhone
The only problem is that I get the song stuck in my head. But I may get an essay out of it. - laura x from iPhone
the internet is one huge art project - DJF
Pro tip: You will get EVERY Thomas song stuck in your head (currently: "Searching Everywhere"). Learn to live with it. - Catherine Pellegrino
Is this a subgenre of Thomas The Tank Engine, or are we talking about fanvids? Because I'm only just starting to realise that subgenres exist thanks to a 3yo friends'-son, and am somewhat fascinated by the fact, but otoh if Thomas fanvids don't exist I might have to make them. (I did make a super-short My Little Pony fanvid for my sister one birthday.) - Deborah Fitchett
"if Thomas fanvids don't exist"????? BA HAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh yes. They do exist. Examplis gratis: - Catherine Pellegrino
I almost started a blog on homemade Thomas videos when Wade first got in to them. There are re-creations, original stories, unboxing vids - every subgenre you could think of. And they are not all made by people under 21 .... - Laura Norvig
But yeah, for some of the funnest ones, just search for "accidents happen thomas" - Laura Norvig
The only problem is that now I have the damn song in my head ALL THE TIME. - laura x
you're a parent. Also, there are worse songs. (also, better ones, including the theme from Arthur, sung by Ziggy Marley) - DJF
Laura, you might like this kids radio station from MPR - maʀtha
We donated a whole bin of Thomas tapes years ago. I do not miss the songs. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Laura Norvig
Minecraft Fossil & Archaeology Mod: The Definitive Tutorial. I think this will answer the final questions. Have to have the same version of Forge as version of MC running as version of mod. Hope, hope, hope this will work. This is supposed to be my birthday present for Wade - to get this mod running. - Laura Norvig
Laura Norvig
Thank God for the internet, youtube and the local crafts store. Got some ideas and made a penguin costume for Wade's circus act tomorrow. Man I hate crafts. I win the mommy game, though. Now, moar wine and bed. Oh crap, I also have to wash his black pants.
Great job! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
He helped make the paper plate mask and helped me shop for supplies at least, - Laura Norvig
And don't ask me why a penguin is in the circus. I have no idea. - Laura Norvig
Got a pic? - Anne Bouey
My sympathies! I had to make two penguin costumes for kids in a production of Mary Poppins. - Anne Bouey
Anne, all I did was cut out a white oval and glue it to a black shirt. - Laura Norvig
That's really cute! - Anne Bouey
Tamara J. B.
Food has never made me happier than it does now that I'm pregnant! <3 I just had the most amazing dinner of a gyro melt and herb feta fries from our favorite Greek restaurant.
I'm so happy you have your appetite! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
My pregnant coworker and I were just talking about how euphoric mealtime is for her now... Such a sweet perk of growing a human! - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I'm so happy too, Yvonne! The first Trimester, I loathed all food so now it's nice to actually enjoy it. @Lisa, you're so right. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
It's a total reset I used to be embarrassed going to lunch with co-workers cuz I would only eat a few bites. Now I eat at least half or more. Of course I'm permanently 20 lbs overweight. The hormones cured my stomach issues. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Night terrors :(
Night terrors :(
Aw, poor kiddo. - Kirsten
Oh no. :-( - vicster: full-bodied
:-( - Betsy
Not good. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Poor Punkin. Give her a kiss from Unca Barry when it's over. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
Poor kid. - Galadriel C.
It was over in about 10 minutes, then we had cuddles.... during which I fell asleep and woke up two hours later squished between Emily and Noah ^_^ - Melly
but getting squished between your own kids is pretty nice, eh? - Big Joe Silence
I was so sad for Wade when he had them, but he really didn't remember them in the morning, and it was a fairly short phase overall. Hope it's the same for Em. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Aw sweetie. - Corinne L
Laura Norvig
My head feels like a baby trying to handle a kite on the windiest day ever. And my body is the kite. #wadeisms
Out of sorts and trying to explain it. So poetic. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Check it out! @Amazon is giving away a $2000 Gift Card! NoPurchNec:
I'm not sure, but I don't think so. I'm not big on using Twitter in the first place. " This application will be able to: Read Tweets from your timeline. See who you follow, and follow new people. Update your profile. Post Tweets for you." - Greg GuitarBuster
yeah, no - maʀtha
Hacked? EDIT: No, it's real - sweepstakes thing. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I'm already plugged into both Twitter & Amazon so I didn't mind the app permissions. & I need $$$ bad :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That would be an amazing thing to win - sending you good luck vibes!!! - Laura Norvig
Thanks, Luv :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

"Take a Letter, Maria. Address it to my wife." Just remembered I performed this in grade school w girlfriends. What was I thinking?
I remember how hard we practiced. WTF? It was, like, fourth grade! - Laura Norvig
my new earworm... I can live with it. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Another memory this jogged: my purple suede clogs. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Laura Norvig
Oh, Hai, Legoland Hotel.
We are not paying a premium price for luxury, we are paying it for a rather clever juxtaposition of kid and grownup accommodation. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Laura Norvig
Google search autocomplete for "does Legoland ..." = "serve alcohol."
Not actually what I was looking for, but good to know. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
OK, now that I am here, I get it. Adult beverages are critical to the success of the mission. Everything is awesome. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Finally got tired of spending $8 to $12 per drink and sent Jeff out for supplies. He doesn't drink lately so now I have my work cut out for me ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Those of you who talk about "inbox zero," do you mean getting rid of unread messages? Or do you literally get your inbox empty?
My goal is to file or delete all the messages. Right now, I would be delighted with Inbox 100. - maʀtha
A lot of us are referring to Merlin Mann's Inbox Zero series: . For my part, I try for less than a screenful of un-dealt-with inbox. I'm not there at the moment, I admit. - RepoRat
Yeah, filed or deleted so there's nothing in the inbox. I get there every once in a while. I get twitchy if I have more than a screenful of un-dealt-with stuff in my inbox. - lris
what iris said. - holly #ravingfangirl
Yep, nothing at all in the inbox once a day is my goal. - Steele Lawman
I make up for all of you with my email hoarding ways. ;) - ellbeecee
Inbox 914. - DJF
you're not even close to me there, buddy. Inbox 6,000 and counting. (I can hear the gasps across the country from my admitting that. Breathe, everyone. :) ) - ellbeecee
I follow the Getting Things Done method of do, delegate, and defer, so I aim to file or tag for follow up all messages every day. I get there at least every three days. At this time of year, I give myself a pass to have a few more. - GretelSK
I'm not an evangelist for inbox zero--when it comes down to it, 6,000 messages in "inbox" isn't that different from 6,000 messages in "saved mail." So it all depends on what makes you feel less anxious and what allows you the freedom to do the stuff you want to be doing, rather than fretting over email. - Steele Lawman
My goal is to have no scroll bar, with everything still in the inbox a legitimate "to do." Everything else gets filed or deleted. - Kirsten
I'm with Kirsten - right now, I'm all unread with about 50 unfiled message. (some I leave in inbox because they make me smile, like this from lolhusband >^•.•^< ) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Right, for me, less in the inbox lowers my anxiety. If I remove stuff from the inbox before I deal with it, I forget about it entirely. - maʀtha
Something that's helped me get my work inbox down is a 'for meetings this week' folder. I can stick stuff in temporary holding there and I try to clean it out every other week, by then the meetings have passed - Hedgehog from Android
Same as Kirsten - everything in my inbox is something to deal with, and I never leave more than 10 in there. - Lily
Thank you ellbeecee! DJF! I am ashamed to admit this, but I actually started printing out emails relating to stuff that needed to be fixed on the new website. It really helped me to be able to touch and scribble "done" or "followed up on...." I've also learned that I'm very good at GETTING organized, but dreadful at staying that way, so I have made friends with "search Inbox" and tried not to feel less loser-like. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
My inbox is like 2700. I love search. - laura x from iPhone
Filed, deleted, and followed-up-on. My inbox is my workspace, though I do call "inbox zero" only when the items flagged for today or overdue are completed, and when there are no new messages to process. - Holly's favorite Anna
I have a "pending" folder, which I guess is kind of cheating? But it helps lower my anxiety as well. - YvonneM
I like to have less than a screen of stuff pending, and archive or delete the rest each day. Time out of the office is tough, though. - Elizabeth Brown
I lol at the idea of inbox zero, though I live to delete. - kaijsa
after this thread I did go delete some. when I left for the desk at 4, I was down to around inbox 4000. - ellbeecee
*fistbumps Ellbeecee and Laura X* It must be a Laura thing. ;) - B. LB. from Android
I too am a "search" person. I periodically clear out list messages which helps knock things down. I think of the email addresses I use most often, the one with the least messages has around 750 (unread), the next couple have around 2800 (unread). Then there's alter ego's email which has around 18,000 (unread). Basically, I skim the subject lines and often don't bother to do anything beyond that. - Katie
It *is* a Laura thing! Personal inbox 6,431. Work - who knows but there's 2176 unread ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone

Creeper Rap - Dan Bull - 1 HOUR VERSION
Is this kid friendly? Watched a few minutes - so funny! - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Heh, this one was actually favorited by my son, not me. I generally keep half an eye on what he watches on YouTube -- it's all Minecraft and LEGO videos. Some have borderline bad language. He and his sister sing the parody songs more than the original sometimes. - Stephen Mack
Oh, it is so time for an S and W meetup. Wade has this one Minecraft Youtuber he is obsessed with. - Laura Norvig
Catchy tune (tune, tune). - Ken Morley
Steve Gillmor
GIllmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PT participate at
hi everyone. hope your Good Friday is indeed a good one! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Does Good Friday have something to do w/Lent? Or are they completely unrelated? - J.C. Bouvier
lent ends on Easter Sunday - Kevin Marks
Right, boulder gets rolled, and then it's a I remember... - J.C. Bouvier
it's all a little fuzzy for me - Tina Chase Gillmor
Oh no, Catechism class! - Tom Guarriello
starting to get everyone up on Skype - Tina Chase Gillmor
...and don't forget.... it's still Passover - Tina Chase Gillmor
Has it started? - Ian Waring
and today Steve is going to crab about the fact that I changed his camera position. I told him i will put it back where it was if he really doesn't like it after today - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm in Malta today, so my brain and my watch are out of sync... - Ian Waring
I was tweeting scripture at the pope earlier - Kevin Marks
ian - not yet - Keith Teare
let me know if you need the Jewish Catholic to add some value to your Easter discussion (me) - Charlie Isaacs
That's serious Catechism class, Kevin! Be careful, he's a Jesuit! - Tom Guarriello
I love that test card, takes me back to my childhood when you waited for TV to start with bated breath! - SImonB
Thank you Keith. Religious lot doing Good Friday marches into Church here... - Ian Waring
I see Tina's forehead :) - Charlie Isaacs
Now that's what Keith calls music - Kevin Marks
Yay! Full crew, but watch out for that Bing traitor! - Ian Waring
Makes sense to FB but does it make sense to users? - Tom Guarriello
I have a Google app on iOS - Kevin Marks
and on android, actually - Kevin Marks
Is this the preparation towards the Facebook Mobile - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Facebook needs to leverage its current user base to expand into more businesses that will diversify its revenue streams. Social platforms have a limited potential for generating revenue and could lose its users to a new app or platform in the future. - Rob Greenlee
Google Voice is now annoying me by telling me every time someone adds me to a circle. Is that in an effort to get me to delete the Voice app from my phone? Or a desperate attempt to get me to hit + pages? Or both? - J.C. Bouvier
WhatsApp, Instagram and other features - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm totally mad a Steve right now. He is refusing to look at the upper part of his screen. I just know I'm going to be repositioning the camera back where it was - Tina Chase Gillmor
Borthwick's thing on homescreen icons may have made zuck think about it - Kevin Marks
FB needs must be where the younger people is: on the mobile - Carlos Cruz
If the Amazon Mobile is true than Zuckerberg will want a piece of the action - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chromebox i5 cant keep up with HD live stream - switched to quad i7 Mac (makes big difference) - clive boulton
But it's all "person-centric"... that's Tantek's point - Darius Dunlap
it is for one to one; for one to many it's subtler - Kevin Marks
Separate apps work well, but Google's separate apps didn't work well at all, either for the user or behind the scenes. They have to break the silos first with Hangouts before they do anything else. - Kevin Bryan
but if done right, navigating that is also made easier. At least, the potential is there. - Darius Dunlap
I'm more with Kevin. If you go user-centric then you have an explosion of complexity. Users seem comfortable with that at the app level. (2 years ago I wouldn't have agreed...) - Ian McGee
Mobile Apps are the new TV Channels - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Jillian York was interesting on this: - Kevin Marks
Google's problem: Everyone was on Google, but nobody could see each other in chat. By Google unifying under Hangouts (and Google+), at least people can find each other now across Google services. - Kevin Bryan
Kevin's point about modalities of communication is very valid, but I'd say apps are artificial constructs, and the fragmentation they create is painful. - SImonB
Apps, Channels, Text vs. Voice.. whatever. The important questions is "how do I best reach this person", and present that in a user-centric set of choices. - Darius Dunlap
I am not convinced people (consumers) love apps, I think corporates love apps! They're a strong channel,and are rapidly becoming brand identity. But that doesn't help consumers. - SImonB
Microsoft tried with Windows Phone to create app integrated "People Hubs" that pulled the data from a variety of apps into one user experience. They are now shutting that down with WP 8.1. - Rob Greenlee
The problem with unbundling Facebook's Services is that you eventually will have Facebook Lite - Moe Glitz from iPhone
wow, all-star cast today - Charlie Isaacs
Jennifer Ehle summed it up: "I know nothing of Facebook. Never been there. I've seen a page of it and it gives me that Microsoft sleepy feeling in my brain." - Kevin Marks
Many Apps & Devices. One User Data Profile - clive boulton
Does anyone else use the "New YouTube video" notifications feature in their notifications bar? I've had it for a long time. Very useful. - Kevin Bryan
interesting question is "why" the Windows Phone idea that's similar is going away. - Darius Dunlap
That it IS going away doesn't really say much. Microsoft has a long history of doing amazing things that for one reason or another never catch on. - Darius Dunlap
Google's Services have always been separate, which is why their Apps are easy to sell separate. Facebook is another thing. If the Facebook Wall becomes a separate App, will the Facebook Wall come crumbling down - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Interesting conversation about "user app churn" behavior on this week's episode of The Prompt - Tom Guarriello
Apps are oriented to user needs, so I think they will stay for long (unless there is a real working assistant like siri that launch apps/services). On the other hand, apps could use backend services - an unified ID could be a good example). - Carlos Cruz
Most mobile users don't really use that many apps on a regular basis. It is like what happened with the web. Early on people visited a lot of different websites, then pulled back to just a few. Same is happening with Apps now. - Rob Greenlee
the diversification of apps has to be well beyond social networks apps directly.. but apps that take advantage of the social network.. like health apps.. etc. - Michael Roberts
camlistore/ use case? - clive boulton
++ Michael Roberts - Darius Dunlap
Paper is the wall as a separate app, Moe - Kevin Marks
just played with a Galaxy S 5, it's awesome - Da
Think Paper will eventually fold Kevin, they should have brought Flipboard - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Enterprise wants to unbundle identity from apps, consumers don't. - clive boulton
Moe: I agree - Keith Teare
missing John Taschek's enterprisey pov - clive boulton
@Moe, @Keith - Paper is by far the better experience, I see it as the iPhone of Facebook apps, where the stock Facebook app is more the Android volume user play...Paper is for people w/a higher gross income...Facebook is for the rest of their users. - J.C. Bouvier
should I talk about fragmentions? - Kevin Marks
give it a try Kevin - Tina Chase Gillmor
Could be true J.C. But Facebook will need to sell it hard. Perhaps inside a Facebook Mobile it will gain in popularity - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Andreessen blocked me on Twitter - Kevin Marks
Paper is facing the same challenge as Medium, which I don't think will ever be large - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Whoa, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
And how were those people starting that company supporting themselves. - Darius Dunlap
my response to that thread was to link this old post: - Kevin Marks
I am someone who has a few bootstrapped startups and I believe you can do a startup without spending a bunch of money, it takes money to get visibility though - Chris Hale
Don't hate on twinkies Steve - Chris Hale
back to the drawing board with the camera placement. Honestly, it's just not right and it's my fault. will try again - Tina Chase Gillmor
There is some stuff that used to be VERY hard, but which has now become free to experiment, and inexpensive to scale. - Darius Dunlap
Agree with Darius - Chris Hale
Well Steve's put his finger on it: innovative in the consumer space. There's way too much variations on the same old social media theme, why fund that unless there's proven revenue? - SImonB
Yep, SimonB, and nobody seems to have confidence that they can pick winners... so they wait. They sit out until there is evidence. - Darius Dunlap
Can Danny talk about Google's pay per click declines on the Desktop and Yahoo's plan to be the default Search player on the iPhone - Moe Glitz from iPhone
blocking often just too much flow :) - clive boulton
Windows is dead zzzz - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I agree that B2B will be more difficult to address to kickstarter entrepreneurs. - Carlos Cruz
Also, the end market is fundamentally more conservative... so Breakouts take a LONG time to ramp up. - Darius Dunlap
Moe, It is hard to count Windows out completely in the mobile/tablet and PC space. Clearly, MS is still an OS that a billion of people still use today. - Rob Greenlee
@Keith, do you ahve an example of a kick tag in Instagram? That's an @ symbol for Twitter or some other for say Facebook? - J.C. Bouvier
thanks Steve / thanks Dan / thanks Semil -- balancing enterprisy pov - clive boulton
Apparently Hookers are using AirBnb for Services in some cities - Moe Glitz from iPhone
"lets make our own startup with Hookers and Blow" - Kevin Marks
I wonder what the enterprise developer program growth is like... the companies building apps for internal-only use... I've seen some very interesting stuff, but I wonder if it's really a "thing" yet. - Darius Dunlap
Hell of a branding proposition, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
"carburetors not ferraris" -- now I get it! - clive boulton
Gnip, Datasift, Radian6 Bing - Kevin Marks
with GNIP Twitter had partial control before and now they have complete control - Charlie Isaacs
Radian6 = Saleforce yah? - J.C. Bouvier
yes - Kevin Marks
it's also way to collect more revenue -- GNIP makes money - Charlie Isaacs
yeah, Charlie Isaacs, I think that's what Kevin was saying... Twitter already has the firehose, but these are people who have experience turning that into useful and profitable products. - Darius Dunlap
You can't trust anything coming out of Twitter unless you go directly to the firehose yourself or go to GNIP and get it from them, and Twitter severely limits the number of vendors who can get to the firehose - Charlie Isaacs
Will Twitter work with Creative Agencies, unlike Google which uses them - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Enterprise can't do "Hookers and Blow" or is that where the puck is? - clive boulton
Enterprise is ALL about "hookers and Blow". - Darius Dunlap
Oh, and Golf. - Darius Dunlap
Show name "slightly unnatural acts"? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Isn't that an Oracle thing? - Kevin Marks
better than what clive just said Tina :) - Charlie Isaacs
Lol. Tina - Darius Dunlap
Google should buy Datasift and perhaps they can build a Fire Engine - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Between "hookers and blow" and "slightly unnatural acts" it may be time to re-rate the show.... - Ian McGee
I missed how "hookers and blow" happened. Geez, when I'm not looking... - Tina Chase Gillmor
Gillmor GangBang - Moe Glitz from iPhone
now you're talking -- connected hardware! - Charlie Isaacs
Larry Ellison makes sure no hookers and blow at big O. - clive boulton
connected hardware I agree - Michael Roberts
"When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go downtown" - Kevin Marks
Stuff people are noodling on. That's how everything interesting starts. - Darius Dunlap
wearables - Da
this friendfeed thing is turning into pornchat or whatever that thing was that I caught my son on the other day - Charlie Isaacs
I'm waiting for the whole space around connect hardware apps.. that bring intelligence to consumers. - Michael Roberts
Wait, are we talking about "hookers and blow" again?? - Tom Guarriello
Ha ha. - J.C. Bouvier
I think home automation and seemless authentication are spaces that are where a lot of interesting things are happening - Chris Hale
I'm quoting Petula Clark lyrics - Kevin Marks
"The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go ...." - Tina Chase Gillmor
Some of us have those lyrics embedded in our unconscious... - Tom Guarriello
Wearables and Connectables are the future. Web 3.0 is here - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Ive been noodling on my own home automation platform and have had pretty good success with getting everything connected and now I am able to control it via voice - Chris Hale
When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go, downtown - Charlie Isaacs
another area is the sharing economy.. I wonder if there will be an amazon for sharing stuff.. the big 'rent' it. - Michael Roberts
Sing Kevin - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Sunday delivery by Amazon, too. Plus, they now send me texts when things get delivered. - Tom Guarriello
we were really surprised to get a package at 9:50pm - Tina Chase Gillmor
you don't want me singing Petula Clark. Pink Floyd maybe - Kevin Marks
My neighbor's angry at me because I shot down his delivery drone down and screwed up his wife's birthday gift - Charlie Isaacs
So ya, think, might like to... goto the show! - Darius Dunlap
Kevin.... I think you should actually sing on the show... so when I cut to you, please go for it! - Tina Chase Gillmor
my singing is bset kept in private - Kevin Marks
Brilliant Idea. Employ handicapped people as drone drivers! - Chris Hale
I've got all the Floyd lyrics right here, in case you need support. ;-) - Darius Dunlap
thats a philanthropic idea where everyone wins - Chris Hale
hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way - Kevin Marks
why deliver when can 3D print - Da
we could make a Gillmor Gang Choir - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'd love to see gillmor gang bring someone in from beyond silicon valley.. like India.. or South Africa.. that might be good check for the Silicon Valley centric thinking.. - Michael Roberts
I used to code that in html - Tina Chase Gillmor
Drones should be use for the good things and not for war! - Carlos Cruz
way back when - Tina Chase Gillmor
Medium sor of does this... - Darius Dunlap
I like that a lot - Tina Chase Gillmor
"sort of" - Darius Dunlap
pretty awesome that the SpaceX Falcon9 lifted off a while ago - Charlie Isaacs
I was visiting Instructables yesterday - they have some insane 3D printers - Kevin Marks
that's an excellent idea, kevin - Tom Guarriello
Can Kevin sing "The Great Gig In The Sky" - Moe Glitz from iPhone
but this new thing is so much more interesting... connecting across systems. - Darius Dunlap
No, Moe - Kevin Marks
I can do Pulp's Common People - Kevin Marks
we all know your code - Michael Roberts
android can keep screen on if plugged in - Kevin Marks
yes it is, steve - Tom Guarriello
Yep. It'll only turn off when you click the button, or flip the smart cover shut - Darius Dunlap
That's why I wasn't in the chatroom; I was watching on iPad. - Francine Hardaway
Ustream has a chat available but it doesn't store the chats... and that's a problem - Tina Chase Gillmor is COOL - Nir Ben Yona
i use Screen On app to keep my screen on - Da
has anyone done an analysis of how many apps people can keep up with... kinda like the 150 friends.. limit. - Michael Roberts
remove the lock screen on iOS will decrease the level of data encryption on the device - Carlos Cruz
i'm gonna get a different tripod that is more flexible - Tina Chase Gillmor
Carburetors don't have theme music, Ferraris do? - clive boulton
Could we please get off FF? - Francine Hardaway
@Francine Hardaway Agreed! FriendFeed is indeed dead. When can we bury the casket and move on to something new? - Kevin Bryan
francine, please give me an alternative - Tina Chase Gillmor
yammer for GIllmor Gang? - Francine Hardaway
I love IFTTT - Francine Hardaway
ifttt rocks - Charlie Isaacs
doesn't save the chat to a page - Tina Chase Gillmor
What about IRC, the olf favorite - Francine Hardaway
I think steve is totally right.. re: notifications. he's been making the same point for a while. - Michael Roberts
it's a sunshade - Kevin Marks
oh hai! you're still here! - Laura Norvig
IRC is nice - Kevin Marks
IRC would be good. Google+ page would be nice too. - Kevin Bryan
Chatter FTW :) and it's connected to IFTTT - Charlie Isaacs
IRC and surrounding tools can do all that, but it's still prettty geeky and difficult to get started. - Darius Dunlap
should I write a web app for gilmor gang to help deal with chat? - Chris Hale
yes Chris - Francine Hardaway
FF still better than G+ chat (UI too verbose) - clive boulton
Chris Hale please talk to me - Tina Chase Gillmor
I remember all of that - Francine Hardaway
lots of other podcasts use irc, but it's a PITA - Tom Guarriello
OK, somebody write an app for us - Francine Hardaway
Francine I think IRC is really good for techs.. but non-techs.. what else exists? - Michael Roberts
Samsung Gear Fit notifications look pretty cool - Da
I can probably write a better chat in 24 hrs than this crappy FF chat - Chris Hale
Hard to fathom why G+ doesn't add an API for chat - clive boulton
I have to watch the show on iPad and type on Mac - Francine Hardaway
invite Chris to the "create a new chat for GillmorGang" hackathon - Charlie Isaacs
Yeah! hackathon! lol - Darius Dunlap
haha, i have two hackathons i am participating in next month already - Chris Hale
hi Darius! Long time no see... - Francine Hardaway
Tina, how do i message you privately? - Chris Hale
I can't believe this chat and video thing hasn't been solved already... - Michael Roberts
OK Chris Hale - it has to be at least as good as FF - Tina Chase Gillmor
*wave* Francine! Hope to see you around here soon. - Darius Dunlap
chris- are you on FB? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Early May - Francine Hardaway
yes, someone please create a new chat app, call it WhatsAppGang and sell it to Zuck for $2B - Charlie Isaacs
Sounds good Charlie - Tina Chase Gillmor
how about whatsupgang - Chris Hale
For $3B, he gets Steve in the deal. - Darius Dunlap
FireChat - Kevin Marks
it used to work great when the chat was embedded right next to the video. - Laura Norvig
What's the limit for a What'sApp group? - Francine Hardaway
GangSpeak - Tina Chase Gillmor
Or we use GroupMe for SXSW - Francine Hardaway
Hangouts - Kevin Marks
Hangouts could work - Francine Hardaway
hangouts has so many problems that is solved by newtek - Michael Roberts
Hangouts would be good. - Kevin Bryan
Pardon? - Francine Hardaway
Chris Hale - friend request me on FB if you use it - Tina Chase Gillmor
You missed the early chat about hookers and blow, Francine - Tom Guarriello
hangouts is not good. for this show. - Michael Roberts
Tina, my facebook id is chris.a.hale. - Chris Hale
Ahh, I get a lot of that on NoAgenda show. It's all about hookers and blow some days - Francine Hardaway
yes, Francine it was a colorful discussion - Tina Chase Gillmor
"Hangry" - Darius Dunlap
FF seems to be the best candidate right now, low barrier to entry and simple. The other suggestions are more complex - Matt Hicks
I'll listen to the reording - Francine Hardaway
IPO window might be closing = VC window also closing - Francine Hardaway
I missed the first 20 minutes. It was going great guns when I joined. - Darius Dunlap
So I've got to go backhand listen, too. - Darius Dunlap

I'm glad I caught some of it - Francine Hardaway
Glad you made it Francine. - Ian McGee
The identity stuff and pivot to enterprise pov was terrific. - clive boulton

The first Silicon Valley episode was pretty funny. Enough to watch it again at least. Love all the make the world better sarcasm. There's a lot of insuferability to mine for the show.
I don't get HBO but my friend showed me it is on their youtube channel, can't wait to watch. - Laura Norvig
Second episode was still pretty good, though not as funny. I wonder how general the audience is for this? It's fairly technical and I might think it boring for most people. - Todd Hoff
Saw the first episode last night. I love it - agree, "change the world," "disrupting digital media," "making a difference" was some of the funniest stuff. But yeah, not sure this will resonate with the normals. - Laura Norvig

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

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

i'm gonna make RR's head blow off: posting on code4lib about how his faculty want to use researchgate instead of the repository
i didn't post, i read a post. - Christina Pikas
Head not blown. Repo UI still sucks. - RepoRat
they want to shut down the repository and use research gate instead? oh. well i'll try harder next time :) - Christina Pikas
Open is open. Whether IRs are a useful way toward open is a discussion worth having. So is whether we can leave open to putatively for-profit entities, which ResearchGate is. - RepoRat
Totally unsurprised. It's both the usability and the sociability of ResearchGate. The problem which faculty and grad students don't realise is copyright/permissions (lots of publishers allow pre/postprint on IRs but not elsewhere, and RG is an elsewhere), but they also don't care much about it either. - Deborah Fitchett
I can't believe there isn't a lawsuit against RG in the offing. They better do it quick, or it'll have enough of an installbase to really cause an insurrection. - RepoRat
What has been written so far about RG and OA? Looking for some good analysis and opinion pieces. Our researchers want to know if they should be on RG (we aren't an academic institution). They say their colleagues at other orgs are telling them, "oh, my paper is up at RG." I want to educate them about the processes of self-archiving if they don't already know about it, but I know RG is going to come up as well. - Laura Norvig

Twitter's new design too alike Facebook for me - clive boulton
There are too many notifications coming in all the time - Francine Hardaway
No safari support? - Murray Macdonald
I'm sure Twitter has been listening to the Gang. We've been talking about the importance of notifications for some time now. Hopefully that will handle the feature carefully - Tina Chase Gillmor
Twitter user statistics: Most People On Twitter Don't Actually Tweet - Nir Ben Yona
Google+ is easier to filter via default circle and circle notifcations - clive boulton
Will be interesting to see if people still stick with FB after all the newstream changes going on - christina sponselli
Hiya - is it just me - video very intermittent - heard 30 secs of Kevin Marks only so far... - Ian Waring
If it defaults to who I follow, that's 1600 people - Francine Hardaway
That's more people than I want to be notified about - Francine Hardaway
I'm hearing everything Ian - Charlie Isaacs
Stream seems strong here on our end, Ian - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't see settings for mobile notifications on the web, just email - Kevin Marks
FB social graph is too social. I want information. Not data from someone I went to school with. - clive boulton

I didn't know Robert had a normal world :=-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I hardly ever use Twitter's standard interface on the Web, I use Tweetdeck. Mostly use Twitter on iPad and iPhone. - Alex de Soto
Threat was enough - i'm getting Scoble loud and clear now - Ian Waring
nobody tell Robert there's a guy behind him photobombing - Charlie Isaacs
Same here, I use Twitter plenty, but I never use the website. - Michael Mahemoff
Wrote this a long time ago about how Twitter will have challenges monetizing ... - Chien-Yu Lin
mobile expects me to add a phone number - Kevin Marks
kevin - can you post the link - Keith Teare
nice woodpecker, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
the link in just goes to settings - Kevin Marks
One way to control noise for Twitter is to promote the ability for tracking back to root sources and filtering away all "met too" posts that do not include others you follow. That is, no one needs 70 people pointing back to the same ABC story - but I do want to see what the people I follow comment on it. - Chien-Yu Lin
@Keith, totally w/you...about her rolodex... - J.C. Bouvier
She can play the piano during board cocktail hours. - Alex de Soto
Mozilla ... I know that half The Board resigned, but did any rank and file resign? - Chien-Yu Lin
Here's what Marc Benioff tweeted about Dropbox: "Zuckerberg is wondering if he should buy Dropbox for $30B as we watches @drewhouston announce a messaging service" - Nir Ben Yona
She's for a sure a smart woman who was simply was miscast in a fugly White House...and I'm not apologist btw...and she wouldn't be on any list of board members of any length that I would make...but I can't imagine she's dead weight. - J.C. Bouvier
It sends wrong signals, but he can't lead the company if the employees hate him - Francine Hardaway
you're crazy, there's no such thing "his employees" in mozilla @robert - flyinthesoup
+1 Francine - Tom Guarriello
Eich resigned - Kevin Marks
Public opinion matters when you are a leader. If your troops won't follow, regardless of the reason, you're unable to lead. - Murray Macdonald
Chien: the troops threatened to quit with a letter to the board. - Robert Scoble
Marc Benioff went on to tweet: Amazing new @carouselapp and Harmony from @drewhouston demonstrates how far behind Apple's photo and file apps are! - clive boulton
that's totally right Murray - Tina Chase Gillmor
Had a Twitter experience that I wanted to bottle a couple of weeks ago - a conversation between a few folks talking around a virtual water cooler re: Facebook and Oculus. I'd love a newspaper made out of slithers like that. - Ian Waring
The CEO carries the vision for the company. He's the leader. Not effective. - Francine Hardaway
thats what storify is for - Kevin Marks
"troops" ? stop militarizing your thoughts. you're taking the wrong model - flyinthesoup
Storify... off looking - thanks - Ian Waring
we don't need no CEO for a new generation community based company. - flyinthesoup
The dangerous precedent that he would have set had he remained would not be about his leadership skills, but rather what message he could have create in right-to-work states where employees effective have no right to work. If minorities think that it is difficult to work in an environment such as California - which is very liberal - imagine a CEO of a company in a Red State. - Chien-Yu Lin
Roberts right, he didn't want to handle the situation - clive boulton
i don't take Eich as a leader either, he's a very deep nerd - flyinthesoup
Leadership principles were pioneered by military. Ever read Sun Tzu? - Murray Macdonald
he's a tech leader. he and Mitchell have been a good team - Kevin Marks
Scoble: Thanks - Chien-Yu Lin
+100 @Storify, use it all the time... - J.C. Bouvier
So is Eich on the spectrum? - Francine Hardaway
Go to Glassdoor. There are a lot of horrible leaders (as per their employees opinions and ratings), but Wall Street loves them and it is a bad economy for a lot of companies, industries. - Chien-Yu Lin
Francine: I don't know that for a fact but I would not be shocked. - Robert Scoble
Bill Gates is often described as having Aspergers. He demonstrates many symptoms. - Murray Macdonald
Carly Fiorina at HP comes to mind.... - Alex de Soto
Murray: yes. - Robert Scoble
My son has Aspergers. He's amazingly smart, just eccentric. - Murray Macdonald
Bill has never admitted that. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina: no, he isn't as far along the spectrum as Bram Cohen. - Robert Scoble
Does anyone know if Mailbox supports Exchange yet? - J.C. Bouvier
Most adults with Aspergers are un-diagnosed. There's no blood-test. It's a subjective diagnosis. - Murray Macdonald
@Semil, what dou you mean about the transition from platform to services ? - flyinthesoup
A classmate of my daughter's is on the autism spectrum. She says he's one of the smartest people she knows. There are a ton of things that freak him out though but even so, he has made great strides over the years being connected to other students. All the kids are very protective of him. It has been a great experience for all - Tina Chase Gillmor
12 million downloads for Office for iPad ... - Chien-Yu Lin
How about the high-frequency trading revelations ala Flash Boys? Wall St. High Frequency Traders are scamming clients by having a few milliseconds lead time to trade against them. The exchanges are selling them the upstream access. - Murray Macdonald
file sharing will disappear as paper will one day - flyinthesoup
Dan's chin keeps getting closer to the bottom of the screen ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
we're printing more paper than ever before - Ludwig Ederle

Does OneNote have a web clipper like Evernote? - Tom Guarriello
wait till you start eating paper... - flyinthesoup
at macdonalds you already do... - flyinthesoup
I like Evernote more than DropBox - Francine Hardaway
I placed my OneDrive folder in a DropBox folder for easier access across apps. - Alex de Soto
I like google drive - Kevin Marks
Both Evernote and Dropbox are now essential for me - Tom Guarriello
what other product or company could go from 0 to millions of new sign-ups in a few days... the Office for iPad strategy was a good move - Charlie Isaacs
Murray, I'm reading that book now - Francine Hardaway
Stability vs. Innovation - Chien-Yu Lin
Deconstructed gets identity out of the way, with Dropbox be killer - clive boulton
Love Evernote but it has splintered its attention into so many apps! - Alex de Soto
Friend just turned me onto - 50GB free...nice interface...and w/MediaFire now offering 1TB for $25/year...DropBox needs to up their free plan. - J.C. Bouvier
Microsoft vs. "Microsoft Killers"; Apple vs. Android. Outside of tech folks, what is more important? - Chien-Yu Lin
As a customer facing imaging application we have to support a bunch of different cloud sources. FB, Flickr, PhotoBucket, Dropbox, Box, Google, Sky Drive, Instagram, Piccasa, etc... - Murray Macdonald

Sync your own Cloud with - clive boulton
Kindle Fire box is there to undermine Games Consoles... - Ian Waring
When you consider photos, Facebook is the #1 cloud provider. - Murray Macdonald
some noisy bugger is playing basketball in the park and making my sound cut in and out - Kevin Marks
Xioami have a good photo sharing service where you don't need to keep all your pics on the handset - just the latest ones, and the rest are accessible anywhere - Ian Waring
really anywhere? or just using their devices? - Kevin Marks
Using their service, which I think is on their devices. - Ian Waring
Area they monetise on mobile and web - given their hardware is an "at cost" lead... - Ian Waring
How much of mobile is stunted by ceiling established by standard cell phone components? Wifi, location, accelerometer, speaker, phone. - Chien-Yu Lin
Apps exist in a world governed by the web - Francine Hardaway
BTW, Fred Wilson thinks we're now in the blockchain era. Bitcoin - Francine Hardaway
Apps crossing over mobile web ramps fragmentation headaches in enterprise - clive boulton
newsreaders include twiitter + facebook - Kevin Marks
adn email - Kevin Marks
and SMS - Kevin Marks
all those are used to end links around - Kevin Marks
The Amazon apps don't make use of "the Web?" - Alex de Soto
Kevin - the nerve of people playing basketball in the park of all places! - Tina Chase Gillmor
secret posts are on the web - Kevin Marks
PhoneGap makes web apps into app apps. Android Intents allow deep linking between apps. - Murray Macdonald
Looks to me like Secret's DAUs have fallen off sharply since SXSW... - J.C. Bouvier
... and RESTful APIs. - Rob Underwood
HTTP lives long in part because of all the system to system interfaces built of HTTP using RESTful APIs - Rob Underwood
Just gotta say that one of the hottest things right now is the McIlhenny Co. from Avery Island, Louisiana. I know Fred Wilson agrees with me. - Frank Paynter
did you read Sinofsky? Basically saying that he's gald to be free of the office strategy tax - Kevin Marks
bitcoin doesn't need an app to transact inside an iOS app though, like an API to a payment gateway right... - J.C. Bouvier
so no more webapps being invested in, does that mean convergence of mobile and desktop OSes - David Boursin
Akka.js seems poised to extend reactive enterprise notifications into mobile apps. - clive boulton

as does web based apps - Kevin Marks

no one has mentioned that Google Glass will go on general sale next week. Apparently no one cares ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
camera + location are web accesible - Kevin Marks
@Tina, right? - J.C. Bouvier
PhoneGap does all that in a hybrid browser. Beacons and other hardware devices are supported through plug-ins. - Murray Macdonald
and what about Robert's preview of new drones? - Tina Chase Gillmor ;) - clive boulton
Drones are old stuff, and most people who want Glass have it:-) @tina - Francine Hardaway
Tina: oh, cruddy, gotta go get my drone. It's in the car. - Robert Scoble
I think Robert's blue shirt is very slimming! - Frank Paynter
I will go get it. I'll be back in a few minutes. - Robert Scoble
Robert is losing weight - Francine Hardaway
yes, agree with Murray -- can leverage a hybrid approach - Charlie Isaacs
I thought he was. I need to pick his brain for beauty secrets. - Frank Paynter
lo carb diet Frank - Francine Hardaway
Just in: Amazon Preparing to Release Smartphone - Nir Ben Yona
Exactly, enterprise won't route notifications via Appledroid - clive boulton
My wife stole my keys. No drone. - Robert Scoble
So my all-chips-all-the-time diet is counter-productive, I guess. - Frank Paynter
Steve jobs invented web applications? LOL. - Murray Macdonald
Francine... it will be interesting to see if that is true about Glass. I might expect so. I'm surprised they didn't drop the price - Tina Chase Gillmor
I wish Dan Farber would tilt his camera down. - Robert Scoble
Yeah, I have lost weight. Drinking a lot less and trying to stay away from carbs. - Robert Scoble
and then Google forked Webkit - Ian Waring
Steve wanted to be like Clint Eastwood and interview Robert's chair - Charlie Isaacs
Robert, will Maryam show me the drone then? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Come on over and we'll fly! :-) - Robert Scoble
multiple open source browsers is a agood thing - Kevin Marks
Robert - Nice on the weight loss. Next step after the improved diet (less booze and carbs) is the CrossFit. - Rob Underwood
Robert, I showed your drone video at the IoT World Forum Steering Committee meeting this week and it totally freaked people out :) the European folks were asking "did he get arrested?" - Charlie Isaacs
I am incredibly close to a Class A "No Fly Zone" for drones but that Phantom 2 Vision+ looks really cool. - Alex de Soto
What is the best fitness tracker today? Which has the most sensors? - Murray Macdonald
They'll start giving glass away when they start to monetize the cloud to the extent that they charge us G+ "customers" for our storage. - Frank Paynter
I've done a course on Google Fusion Tables - and used all my nutrition data and weight i've filled in daily for 12 years now in it. Putting less food in your mouth helps - and carbs is a big factor, much bigger than I expected. - Ian Waring
I lose consistently when 2/3 my carbs of what i'm consuming this year! - Ian Waring
BTW, Semil is a great voice to have in this discussion. I hope he's on the show more. - Rob Underwood
Sinofsky largely moved MS off Win 32 and onto http based interfaces - Ian Waring
+1 Rob - Frank Paynter
Ian, I hate the news that I have to eat less to lose weight. - Frank Paynter
The iPhone wasn't lean. You need a polished product to succeed today. - Murray Macdonald
True, MVP doesn't work well for mobile - Michael Mahemoff
This point that Keith makes week after week is very important, imo. - Tom Guarriello
... is this going to lead to another music discussion. old music vs. new music? - Rob Underwood
Next iPhone will be encased in Liquid Metal. No more milled Alluminium - Ian Waring
and Sapphire screen - Ian Waring
Only if there's a decent tuba part in the new music. - Frank Paynter
I used QUip yesterday. Pretty good:-) - Francine Hardaway
I recommended it to a friend yesterday - Ian Waring
I think this is why Larry has taken up this moonshot idea, Keith. Scale innovation is not what the market is about. - Tom Guarriello
iOS is a 45, Android the album? - Kevin Marks
Semil's prescient, none downloadable mobile apps emerging. Ties with Keith's broken lean startup. - clive boulton
Sinofsky moved MS off of .NET and back onto Win 32. I don't know where you got the idea that he moved it to http based interfaces. That is NOT true in Windows for the most part, except in the tiles up front that most people don't really like that much. - Robert Scoble
Quip that is - though I think Keith was right last year. California seems to ignore the effect of installed bases of lethagic (to change) markets - Ian Waring
Carousal - Kevin Marks
Anyone going to the smart fabrics show on the 23rd? - Murray Macdonald
Carousel reminds us all that Mad Men is coming back on Sunday!! - Tom Guarriello
I find it interesting that Quip has been around food a while but people are starting to talk about it again. giving it a second look. that doesn't always happen - Tina Chase Gillmor
Mad Men is coming back? So is Nurse Jackie. - Francine Hardaway
smaller ipads? - Kevin Marks
Oh, thanks for the Nurse Jackie reminder, Francine. One of my faves. - Tom Guarriello
i really NEED a bigger screen - Tina Chase Gillmor
not want. NEED - Tina Chase Gillmor

Insert obligatory, "size matters" remarks here... - Tom Guarriello
Nexus 5 - Francine Hardaway
the texting problem is on Apple's end - Kevin Marks
I'll buy it off you Francine. :) - Murray Macdonald
Self cannibalization by Apple once again... - Tom Guarriello
I have to keep it Murray until Apple releases iPhone 6 - Francine Hardaway
Looking back as far as 2005, Sinofsky was throwing http APIs to Sharepoint and the whole Office Suite - thought this continued into Windows 8... - Ian Waring
How about a bigger battery? - Charlie Isaacs
Oh, that's another thing about the Nexus 5 that I don't like: 1/2 day of battery life - Francine Hardaway
you all know it's not the size, it's what you do with it that matters, right? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Android fragmentation addressed via Google play API services - clive boulton
Android fragments help to reduce recoding. Using a browser (or hybrid app) you can ignore screen size if you practice responsive design. - Murray Macdonald
I love it when Tina talks about batteries like that - Charlie Isaacs
somehow I can only say silly things today :-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have solved the battery problems in my life. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie.

Interesting thing is that Amazon Fire has YouTube and looks like a carbon copy of Android TV screen shots - Ian Waring
I have a Mophie - Francine Hardaway
I use a Mophie, it almost gets me to the end of the day now - Charlie Isaacs
Anybody on this stream score a WWDC ticket? - Tom Guarriello
didn't try - Kevin Marks
Instead of a Mophie, wouldn't life just be better if you could remove / replace the battery on an iPhone, with spare batteries hanging around? - Chien-Yu Lin
Mophiestopheles!!! - Alex de Soto
