Do you guys ever daydream that one day FriendFeed will get emancipated from Facebook, in, like, a "no hard feelings" kind of a way, and then the whole world will realize how great it is, and they'll all sign up, and then we'll be, like, the rock star elders of FriendFeed, and everyone will love and worship us?
Everything up to "and then the whole world" sounded pretty good. - Steven Perez from Android
I wish FF would get minor feature updates, at least. New Twitter API (?), Vine and Instagram video integration, HTTPS for Youtube, a bookmarklet that can handle whatever weird thing Tumblr does for photo gallery pages. - Andrew C (✔)
Yes. All the time. Although only if it stays sort of the same, or I get some kind of old-skool privileges like free lifetime ad-free membership. - laura x
Nope, for two reasons. One, "ad-free" would not be in the story, not unless it was a fee operation (you know, The Well is still around...). Two, I don't think we could have the sometimes-frank, lively, open, effective, non-trollish discussions we do if there were 100 million people on FriendFeed. (Take, for example, some of the librarian groups on FB. Please.) - Walt Crawford
as long as I'm dreaming up features, I'd like to have newlines in comments (I realize this can be abused), newlines preserved from imported content like Twitter, and some amount of optional markup, or at least spoilers markup. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, new lines are preserved when posted - ffhound app displays then appropriately (well, android app, not sure about ios version anymore). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Meg, to be honest - yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kind of like how Bill and Ted and the Wyld Stallyns band is so revered in the future. - Joe
I have daydreams of hiring Jimminy and setting up FF2 when/if FB ever gives up on this place. But there's no viable business model. The closest would be donations. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, how much would it cost? - Meg VMeg
Bandwidth and hosting is likely costing FB at least $5k a month. A part-time sysadmin at least that as well. Any development costs would be double or triple that just for maintenance and minor features. If we can't raise $100k a year it's not worth even considering. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Huh. What if we sold ads that only showed up if people weren't logged in? And never fixed/added any of the stuff Andrew wants (sorry Andrew)? And got Blake to host it (sorry Blake) - Meg VMeg
I would pay for FF. - laura x from iPhone
I would pay for FF. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Yep, me too. I was thinking of how Metafilter is partly pay-what-you-will now, in addition to ads for non-members and for members who choose not to turn them off. - Meg VMeg
What if FB just relaunched FF with a new name and a graphical refresh? Like, "Hey", with a condensed Helvetica logo, all in black and white? #takethatEllo - Andrew C (✔)
Stephen, I dream of hiring Jimminy too. Maybe he could help add functionality to a Buddypress site? - Mary B: #TeamMonique
The guy developing hey just followed me on ello. Is hey a thing? - Joe
Rumor. If you have Swets, one should extract your data from Swets products before or on Weds 10/1.
As in usage statistics or?? - Deborah Fitchett
Yeah, stuff like that. - Joe

Refuse to pay. :P Seriously though, congratulations. That's excellent! - Soup in a TARDIS

I am now taking name suggestions for the new x-mobile, which will be here in a few days. It will be a baseline 2014 Subaru Impreza in either blue or silver. Go!
The X-Mobile - Catherine Pellegrino
The My Story Machine - Pete : Team Marina
Subaruversive - Pete : Team Marina
Imprezi *grins, ducks, runs* - RepoRat
Jack. - Marianne
I always suggest the name Urabus for a Subaru. - A Gunny named Slickback
Previous cars have been Viktor ('98 Honda Civic), Maximus ('87 Chevy Nova, named for Charles Olson's Maximus poems), the Phoenix ('83 Subaru that I drove for one summer), the Sphinx ('86 Volvo wagon), and the Octopus ('84 Chevy Cavalier). Weirdly I never named my most recent car ('00 Subaru Outback) or the one I've had on loan since January ('00 Toyota 4Runner). - laura x
New Rambler - maʀtha
Midnight Blue? then Midnight Rambler. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
Oooh. I like Midnight Rambler. I might just call it Midnight. - laura x

Petitioning Joe Murphy: Drop the lawsuit:
*bump* - John Dupuis
The "j" in ello is silent. #FunFact

Another good post adding another useful perspective. (And, by pointing me to comments I'd ignored for a long time, reminding me that some people are jerks on more than just their hobbyhorse topics. Good to be reminded of that.) - Walt Crawford
Walt, I thought you especially might appreciate/be horrified by that comment. - laura x from iPhone
Both. I think I saw it back then, but had forgotten. It helps, if I'm inclined to cut somebody slack... - Walt Crawford
Happiest Birthday to DJF! May your day begin with a good cup of coffee and get better from there

He's gonna have to write another prequel novella just to make more Starks to kill. - Sarah G.
It'll need a whole Nation of Stark. - lris

Holy crap, I got cited in the 2014 IPCC report.
linky? (which I typed first as "oinky" and just, no.) - RepoRat
Well, not that prominently, but still: (it's Keener et al.) - Meg VMeg
Twice. I think that's pretty impressive! - RepoRat
Awesome! - Jenny H. from Android

I need to work on gathering tax documents. That is why I just vacuumed of course.
it is also why I will now do the laundry. - Laura Norvig
Have you dusted your bookshelves recently? I bet they really need it. - lris

Holy crap. I bought a Roku and now we are watching YouTube on the TV. Whoa.
I thought YouTube was the one thing you *can't* watch on a Roku. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
the newest one, roku 3 (i think) has the feature - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'm ashamed to say how much I love my Roku. And now my parents (MY PARENTS) are buying one too. - lris
I bought the cheapest one on Amazon (I think), and YouTube is working. I just can't believe any technology at all works with my grocery store television that my ex-bf got me for Christmas years ago. - laura x from iPhone
My auntie is in her 80s and likes to watch Korean dramas on her Roku. - Rodfather from Android
we have two older Rokus, but I bought a newer one that we never even used yet. Just installed and we're checking out Youtube right now! - Laura Norvig
RT @skeskali: The funny thing is he thinks this lawsuit will save his professional reputation. #teamharpy
Seriously. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Yeah... this is totally helping me think well of him. - lris
I think he has a reputation...its just not what he thinks it is. and i don't think he's been viewed as professional in 4+ years now, or whenever he started the "library futurist" thing - Sir Shuping is just sir
He was, in certain circles that largely coincided with the Dysart/Abram library-conference empire. Plus, y'know, the whole III sinecure thing. - RepoRat
Googles sinecure. - Joe
RR yeah, although I know it started biting Dysart in the butt the last couple of years. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I just think of him as the guy who says "nice shirt" to women at conferences. - laura x from iPhone

Some days I bust out the giant Post-It paper and markers in class just because I think it's fun.
Extra-big markers. - Meg VMeg
YES - jambina
I think it's the heady reaction to the smell of the markers, personally - Aaron the Librarian
The students were confused at first, but they are first-years and it seems everything is confusing to them. Their prof was way into it. - kaijsa
What about Scotland Yard?
It will now just be Yard - Steve C Team Marina
huh, thought i posted this to LSW too earlier today but apparently not. happy to finally be able to announce that in early November i'll be starting a new gig at the University of Chicago as their IR manager. #fuckyeahChicago!

Congrats! - Jen
Cool. - Joe
Hooray + Congratulations! - Galadriel C. from Android
I think it will soon be time for another LSW Midwest Meetup. *nods* - RepoRat

I could go for Chicago, sure. - RepoRat
Yay! - Betsy

Two guards stand at a fork in the road, and only one way leads to paradise. One guard always lies, the other likes big butts and cannot lie.
I ask if the other guard likes to stay and play. - Steele Lawman
LOL, the Epimenides/Sir Mix-a-lot paradox? - Victor Ganata
Well that makes that puzzle easier. - Arlan K.
The unstated assumption is that you only get one question, right? Because otherwise my first question is "How many fingers am I holding up?" or some other statement whose truth value I already know. - Deborah Fitchett
Bridgekeeper: Stop. Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see. - WarLord
Without my permission, no one may cross. - Betsy
I just say, "I'm going to paradise" and cross, because I know the other brothers can't deny. - Stephen Mack

I've been negotiating a license now for over a month. When we sign off on this I am getting a disco ball installed in my office.
Wow, disco balls are actually pretty reasonably priced. - Marie
