just hit 'send' on email to the fam opting out of xmas this year. what's done cannot be undone. shwew
and just sent the cancellation of participation in the holiday craft fair. Operation Protect My End of Year Sanity is in effect. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

If anyone gives you a hard time about it, lie and tell them you have become a JW. It might shut them up faster. - April Russo
We were JWs once, April, so that wouldn't fly. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
That makes no sense. Why would it not fly? - April Russo
I just meant my fam would know there's no way I went back to the Congregation. And to be clear, by "opting out of xmas" what I mean is not traveling to see either branch of the fam for the holidays, and instead spending it quietly on my own however I choose, which is a big deal for me that I've been trying to pull off for like 10 years. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Good for you. I've done the opt-out a few times and it has been really nice. Last year I spent Christmas day doing some writing, then went to see American Hustle at the theatre. - Corinne L

Knowledge-based Artificial Intelligence | AI3:::Adaptive Information
"Knowledge-based artificial intelligence, or KBAI, is the use of large statistical or knowledge bases to inform feature selection for machine-based learning algorithms used in AI. The use of knowledge bases to train the features of AI algorithms improves the accuracy, recall and precision of these methods. This improvement leads to perceptibly better results to information queries, including pattern recognition. Further, in a virtuous circle, KBAI techniques can also be applied to identify additional possible facts within the knowledge bases themselves, improving them further still for KBAI purposes." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

Favorite food blogs? I could just go through Meg and Holly's feeds, but I am lazy.
Well, so, the basics for me are Smitten Kitchen, Homesick Texan, and Budget Bytes. But it feels like they may have run out of good stuff at this point (or they're saving it for cookbooks), so I'll watch this post. - Meg VMeg
I mostly read Serious Eats and I Am A Food Blog at this point. - Andrew C (✔)
I love 101cookboos, Cucina Nicolina, and The Stone Soup, in addition to those already mentioned. Or I did years ago when I was still reading food blogs regularly. Also Eggs on Sunday. - laura x from iPhone
Thanks, everyone! Keep 'em coming! - Zamms
i am terrible about checking teh food blogs lately (I think my RSS feeder is gonna 'splode once i open, it's been so long). I mostly look at Serious Eats and the Kitchn since i get emails and follow on twitter. But yes to the ones Meg mentioned earlier. I also refer back to Skinnytaste often. Some of the others off the top of my head (and skimming delicious): Joy the Baker, Two Peas & Their Pod, Ezra Pound Cake, Food52 - holly #ravingfangirl
Feel free to troll through my delicious links (which is more evidence that i look at the Kitchn and Serious Eats the most lately :P): https://delicious.com/hollysu... - holly #ravingfangirl

Dropbox is insane. This policy is nuts: "Question: Will joining someone else's shared folder use my quota?" [Dropbox Help] - https://www.dropbox.com/help...
Dropbox is insane. This policy is nuts: "Question: Will joining someone else's shared folder use my quota?" [Dropbox Help]
Answer: "The size of a shared folder will be counted against the quota of every member of that folder, unless everyone is a member of the same Dropbox for Business account. For Business accounts, the size of the shared folder will be counted against the team's shared quota only once. For all other users, your Dropbox storage quota is calculated by adding up the total amount of data in your Dropbox folder, including all shared folders. As a result, the owner of a Dropbox Basic 18 GB (2 GB + bonus storage earned through referrals) account will not be able to collaborate on a shared folder larger than 18 GB. One reason this policy exists is to prevent people from giving themselves unlimited space by stacking Basic accounts with shared folders." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
My camp is trying to share photos from Burning Man. We started out on Flickr, but Flickr requires everyone have a Yahoo e-mail, and some people resisted. So we gave Dropbox a try. Now everyone who joins the shared folder is out of quota. - Stephen Mack
I guess we'll try Google Drive or Shutterfly next. - Stephen Mack
If people don't want full rez, just upload to G+ and you'll get 2k resolution unlimited photos for free. - Steve and 4 other people
the dropbox thing is baffling. what a strange solution to "we don't want people to be cheap". - Jenica
Steve: G+ might work, although if people didn't want to create a Yahoo account, not sure how they'll feel about G+ accounts. - Stephen Mack
Jenica: I know! It seems completely nuts to me. - Stephen Mack
I think G+ has the same problem as Google Drive right? Do you have a non-google e-mail address I can try to share a GDrive folder with? - Steve and 4 other people
Sure, you could use my @tivo.com address - Stephen Mack
Done. Do you want to share a folder? - Steve and 4 other people
Got it! Thanks, Steve. (Curious: Why do those files have such bizarre filenames?) - Stephen Mack
So what I ended up doing since half of us are on Dropbox already is to use "links" instead of "shares" -- I have one shared folder for uploads, which I then move into the "linked" folder. Still pretty lame. - Stephen Mack
Yup, I have this same problem with Dropbox. We have a license to a bunch of tutorial videos for WordPress, and the creator shares the new versions with us through Dropbox. Each time he shares the updated videos, it blows right through my Dropbox quota, and I have to remove everything else in order to accept the sharing invitation. Then, it gets a little dicey, because I'm never sure if... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Those filenames are just what Amazon MP3 generated, unfortunately. :( - Steve and 4 other people
@Stephen, if Google Drive doesn't work, rant about why and I'll tell our people what we should do to fix. - Louis Gray

I think Scoble said it best in the past: it takes discipline to manage and organize your contacts and lists. - Zachary Grant
Very much dislike the Twitter emails that say: "Do you know Justin Bieber?" I don't think my social graph says anything that would indicate that I would care about Bieber. - Alex de Soto

"Recently there has been a spate of articles in the mainstream press, and a spate of high profile people who are in tech but not AI, speculating about the dangers of malevolent AI being developed, and how we should be worried about that possibility. I say relax. Chill.  This all comes from some fundamental misunderstandings of the nature of the undeniable progress that is being made in AI, and from a misunderstanding of how far we really are from having volitional or intentional artificially intelligent beings, whether they be deeply benevolent or malevolent." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

He seems a little out of touch with what library services this is competing against. - Joe
I met Anurag Acharya years ago at an SFX conf (before it was ELUNA) - he was great & eager to work with librarians / libraries. I get a different vibe from this article, but it is interesting. when I tweeted it, I ps'd: use the library. :-/. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

FF Team, how come you can't find your Twitter friends on the service any longer? Is this due to Twitter changes? Are there plans to restore it? Thanks.
Screen shot 2010-10-14 at 12.37.45 PM.png
yes, this. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you put &source=twitterandroid at the end of the REST request, I bet they can punch through any of twitter's API changes. - Andy Bakun
did not the twitter API change some time ago ? - Peter Dawson
Yes and yes. - Benjamin Golub
thanks Louis this is a huge loss to the service you provide guys. Find your friends › Find Twitter friends Finding your Twitter friends We could not find your Twitter friends. - Thomas Power
This has been fixed. - Benjamin Golub
Something fixed on FriendFeed? Hmmm... - Cliff Gerrish
right on. thanks again, Ben! :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd be happy if I could get my Twitter to import again. Has not for... months. - Alix May
Yes Cliff, things do get fixed here. Not always as quickly as we'd like, but that's universal. - Bruce Lewis
Ben is awesome, of course. Thank you sir. - Louis Gray
Things get fixed but no new features will be added. - Akiva
something wrong with ff. - Tayfun Yaşar
Like Alix said, importing twitter not working still... - Cem
Ben: keeper of the flame. - Laura Norvig
Thanks Louis this really does need fixing FF is the only place that aggregates twitter feeds well - Thomas Power
Fantastic Ben, Louis thank you so much. - Thomas Power
Bipolar owl: I'm sorry you feel that way. I actually did commit a change that fixes this and a few weeks ago another change that fixed adding Twitter accounts. Unfortunately both fixes are for public Twitter accounts only. It looks like you have a private account. Stay tuned! - Benjamin Golub
Thanks for the fixes and the great attitude Ben. I imagine there isn't a huge incentive to continue to patch things around here, but it's clearly a great product and people are still passionate about it. Rock on, dude. - John
This is broken again. - Fedge No

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. - Petty LaBelle
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. - Petty LaBelle
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

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: #TeamMarina
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
