What other social networking/Web 2.0 sites do you use besides FriendFeed?
Bumblr, Snickr, YouTuba, but nowhere any good. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Or anywhere no good. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Nothing you haven't heard of. :) (Twitter, Flickr, FB...need to spend more time learning Quora and Reddit). - Spidra Webster

I tried out Ello. - Stephen Mack
Twitter, Twitter, and more Twitter. Also Github. - Mike Chelen
FB and Twitter. Very occasionally G+. - Jenny H. from Android
What Jenny said - Laura Norvig from iPhone
FB and rarely G+. - Anne Bouey
Twitter and FB, a little bit of G+ and Tumblr. - Melly Claus
Livejournal. - bentley
not sure what you mean by web 2.0 but I hit twitter every morning for a quick scan of the news, feedly for the blogs I want to read, and tumblr is a distraction for my increasingly fractured mind. I think of tumblr as a glossy magazine where I flip through the pages. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Feedly, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Oh, and Ello, from time to time. - Steven Perez from Android
Yeah I guess I should add that I do use Facebook to interact generally with family and a few friends. But Facebook's noise to signal ratio is too high for me to use it for much else. - MoTO: #TeamMarina, I keep intending to use facebook but don't generally get to it. I caught up with Instagram yesterday, thanks to the fact that I'm only following something like 4 people there. - Bruce Lewis
g+ and feedly. - imabonehead
G+ daily, Twitter 2-3 times a day, FB once or twice a day, but only really active on FF. (As with MoTO, FB's mostly for family. - Walt Crawford
Twitter and Google+. - Louis Gray
None. I'm a purist. - Steve C Team Marina
Barry, I'm not sure what I meant by Web 2.0, other than there are sites that have some social component to them, but are not really thought of as social networks, e.g. Yelp. - Heisenberg
What are people's impressions of Ello? - Heisenberg
Wasn't ready for beta. Very few features at beta. More now, but no users. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Just Twitter (for light use) -- not Facebook or Google+. Still waiting for any other service to catch up with Friendfeed -- and for the next generation of a Friendfeed-like service to appear -- someone is bound to develop it. - Sean McBride
Any interesting features that FriendFeed doesn't have? - Heisenberg
screensaver. - imabonehead
I've got a huge list of features to add to Friendfeed that I've collected since 2007. I need to pull those notes together and post them as a single document. - Sean McBride
Facebook - Ozgur Demir
I just checked out the latest Twitter analytics features -- great stuff. A future version of a Friendfeed-style social media platform should include analytics at this level (and better) for all individual and group feeds (*especially* group feeds, which are ripe for hundreds of analytic snapshots). - Sean McBride
Sean, I'm interested in your feaure list. - Heisenberg
Italian Friendfeed like service: - miki
Geocities - Maurizio
Heisenberg -- give me a few days to find time to compile it -- the notes are scattered across six or seven years. - Sean McBride
My admiration and love for the brilliant design of Friendfeed continues unabated -- in fact, it keeps increasing as I compare it to new inferior services. - Sean McBride
Has everyone noticed that Friendfeed is often more efficient than email for private one-on-one and group communications? Much less cruft. Much swifter. Much easier to browse over time. Also superior to text messaging in many cases, in terms of interface. - Sean McBride

When did Cabbage Patch Kids become "CPK"? WAIT, DON'T TELL ME, because I'm sure it was the day they took the Fried out of my Kentucky Chicken.
Always makes me think of California Pizza Kitchen, which my old roommates were obsessed with. - Jennifer Dittrich
It became CPK when I became too lazy to type out the whole thing ;o) - Melly Claus
"Maybe the CPK have two billboard awards to your zero!" - Mark Trapp
No no, don't blame yourself, Mellyboo—the letters are right on the kid's jersey. - Micah
Mark, actually the German subtitles made it even more epic than it already was. - Micah
Dutch, but close enough. Unless you're Dutch, them I'm sorry. Not for being Dutch, unless you don't like being Dutch. Then I'm sorry again. Also, I agree. - Mark Trapp
Having both German and Dutch heritage I have offended myself. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Managed to find a boy CPK for Emily. His name is Desmond Hector. Just hoping he arrives in time for Christmas!
My first/only CPK (a preemie) was Muriel Lettie. Right? I was on a waiting list for 5 months. - Meg VMeg
My parents got me a fake one - ripped off! It was meant to be black but its face had turned a shade of green. And it had red hair. He didn't even come with a name. A friend also had a fake one with pink hair, she called her Dandee. So I called mine Dandy, middle name Webster. - Melly Claus
My daughter had 2 of them, both boys, and I don't remember what their names were. My daughter called them Rughead and Baldy. - April Russo
there were a couple of coaches at my HS in the 80s we referred to as Rughead and Baldy. - Big Joe Silence

the central library in my city is closing permanently on the 23rd. oldest is pretty upset about this and i am none too pleased myself. she made me promise to bring her back this week with a camera and take more photos and let her say goodbye.
Oh geez, that's awful! Can you get library cards for another city or will Arlington just not have a library? - Jessie
we have loads of branches. supposedly they will build and open a new central library by 2017, but it's a bit like W saying we're going to the moon and then gutting NASA. the old library site will be a new commercial real estate development and will likely stand empty like the rest of our dead downtown area. - Big Joe Silence
:( - Alix May
we can give Jerry Jones and the Cowboys a free $1.6 billion stadium (and then make them tax-exempt) but we can't do shit for the citizenry or their children. - Big Joe Silence

Ah, that sucks. Poor kiddo. Hopefully she'll love one of the branch libraries just as much. - Kirsten

Joey's on the toilet with an iPad, Em's on the potty with an iPhone. Children of the iPoop generation.
I wasn't allowed to bring books to the bathroom. I seem to remember it was because I took too long. (If my mother knew about the paperback I kept hidden on the top shelf behind the towels, she never let on.) - bentley
I'd give those a wipe down every now and again. Phones are some of the dirtiest objects. - Mo Kargas

When I was back & forth to the hospital after Emily was born, I wrote a letter to Qld Health asking if they could move the main smoking area which was right near the main entrance & the entrance to the ER, ie almost impossible to avoid if you needed to go in to the hospital. They said they couldn't. This is much better. I know people will still flout the rules, but at least people don't have to run the gauntlet anymore. - Melly Claus
Smokers in this country are terrible about gumming up entrances/exits with their smoke, even when it's prohibited. I hope this helps, though. - Spidra Webster

Well, this will bring out the last few remaining racist, bigoted, anti-Muslim fuckwit "friends" on my social media accounts.
For the last year or so, I've been attempting to make Facebook a pleasant place for myself. I've been weeding out people who post things I find upsetting, distressing, etc etc. The world is a harsh place. It's nice to have a couple of little areas where I don't have to come across that stuff. - Melly Claus
And it looks like I will have to unfriend my own father-in-law. Good grief. - Melly Claus

Due to my ridiculously stupid oven these were undercooked even after two hours. I was so sad :o( - Melly Claus

Hmm. Those are ideal - Mo Kargas
Our oven is super-old and badly needs new seals. I always have to add on extra cooking time but it's trial and error. I may try zapping them in the microwave first next time. - Melly Claus
Could also try a greased ceramic pan, sans paper, then cover with aluminium foil - Mo Kargas
Also, you could also steam them upside down over a pan of water for a few minutes before hand. - Johnny

Can you remember smells? Like, if I told you to remember a rose, and then an orange, and then...cedar or something, could you do it?
Yes, some smells more than others, though. When I just tried those three, cedar and orange really popped, but my rose has faded? lol - Brent Schaus
Those three? Yes. - Catherine Pellegrino
Are there others that you can't? I ask because I was reading this annoying Oliver Sacks book, and he claims that people usually can't recall scents. And I don't understand what he's talking about. - Meg VMeg
Yeah, well, people also claimed that we don't dream in color, yet I do...go figure. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I don't. I mean, I know what they smell like and I'd recognize them, and I can describe their characteristics, but if I think about them I don't have a sensory memory of them. - Katy S
Maybe they mean on a specific neurological level? Like the parts of the brain dealing with memory trigger, but not the parts dealing with scent, so you don't "really" remember the smell, just think you do? I know a lot of the argument about not dreaming in color is because (supposedly) we add the colors in after we wake (according to brain scans or something) as opposed to registering coloring during the act of dreaming/seeing? - Soup in a TARDIS
As I reflect on it, to remember the smell of orange I kind of have to remember the taste, too. They go hand in hand. - Brent Schaus
I. Can really remember and whatever equivalent of picture those smells. But my brains weird. I used to have a bit of synesthesia - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Yes. I can remember what a particular thing smells like. I am wondering if he is saying that we can't remember what a thing smells like, or if we can't remember what we were smelling during a particular moment or event. For eg if you asked me to tell you what my office, or the restaurant, or a street I was walking on, smelled like on Friday I would be pretty lost, but if you asked me what it looked like I would have a clear picture. - Marianne
So, clearly I'm the freakish one here. - Katy S
I believe the answer for me is yes. But it would be interesting to take peer-reviewed test on the matter. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Yes. - Steven Perez from Android
So, yeah, I can remember those, but like Marianne, if you asked me to remember what the building where I spent 75% of my waking hours in college smelled like, then no, I can't remember that (though I know from experience that if I walk into it again now it'll smell EXACTLY THE SAME). So maybe that's what Sacks means? Oh, and the only reason I can say "yes" to rose is because I just started using something that has a really genuine rose scent to it, so it's a recent memory. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yes. ETA: I had visuals come up with each word as I was thinking about the scent. Cedar made me picture the cedar closet in my parents' bedroom, for example; roses made me visualize the rose garden in Capitol Park (a very fragrant spot). Oranges brought up an image of oranges smashed on the sidewalk near where I park my car, as they fall off the trees along that street. Is that typical? - Corinne L
Smell is probably my strongest sense--a lot of my memories are connected to smells--the spaghetti sauce that my mom's best friend made when I was 3 or 4--it had celery in it. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Aye. - Jenny H. from Android
Yep. - Melly Claus
yes I would. my nose is very sensitive. I woulda been a great bloodhound. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
The orange, yes. - Alix May
So, all of you get a sensory memory of the smell? You think about it and it is as if you are smelling it again? This amazes me. I must be missing out. - Katy S from iPhone
Yes to both being able to recall a scent and to Katy's question about sensory memory of a smell. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I feel defective. - Katy S from iPhone
Katy, no! I have a dear friend who can't smell at all. never has. it's pretty crazy and I forget about it sometimes, but he lives a happy fulfilling life. mostly. ;) - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Oh hun, you're far from defective. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I'm fine. I just never realized other people could think of a scent and smell it. I'm not great at recalling specifics from images, either. I wonder if those things go hand-in-hand. ETA. Which isn't to say that I can't ID scents very well. I'm fairly sensitive to them and can usually ID them quickly. I just dont have that kind of scent recall. - Katy S from iPhone
I would definitely recognize it if I smelled it, so that must be a memory stored in there somewhere, but I can't think about it and recall a smell as if it is right there with me if that is what you are talking about - Mr. The Jason Fleming
Katy - I can't either. Just trying right now made me sneeze :). - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
I am also a freak. But then I also can rarely smell anything. - laura x

Got chatting to Josh after the kids went to bed, then had trouble settling down to do some work, hence I've only just finished at 1am, and now I remember I have to be up super early to get Josiah to school early to find out what class he'll be in next year.
I also just realised Emily hasn't woken up with her usual Tuesday night night terrors yet. Normally happens within two hours of her going to bed. Hmmmmm. - Melly Claus

Activated almonds? - Stephen Mack from iPhone

I was just gonna comment, Stephen, asking what the fuck are activated almonds? And, are we supposed to admire this pretentious prick? hmph. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
What do almonds do when they're activated? By the Power of GreyAlmond! or is it, Almonds, Activate! - bentley
The Yu Gi Oh jokes are funny to me because Jayden will say "_______ activated!" in the character's voice so of course that's how I heard the memes in my head. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I was thinking Power Rangers. :-) - bentley
He has quite the following here in Australia! He's a chef with no qualifications in nutrition, dietetics or any science but likes to think he knows what he's talking about. - Melly Claus from FFHound!
Gotta say: my Central Valley cousins grow almonds, lots of 'em (one is even responsible for one of the most prevalent newer blight-resistant trees, the Aldrich almond). I'll swear none of them has ever heard of "activated almonds." Maybe it's an Oz thing? (Otherwise, I'll second Starmama's second sentence.) - Walt Crawford
Aha. After a little Binging: So it is an Oz thing. It is also, I suspect, purest bullshit from a nutritional standpoint. Unless there's something VERY different about Australian almonds. (If there was any possible truth to it, you can bet Blue Diamond would have activated almonds on every store shelf, charging twice the usual price.) - Walt Crawford
You're correct Walt - it is an absolute crock. He's set to make a mint from all his food-woo despite all the current negative publicity. - Melly Claus
It's a pseudo-religion. Facts and findings are just the work of "the big food companies" (read as The Devil) and Pete (Jesus-like) is here to show us the hidden truth. - Johnny

RT @JodyAllen_SAHM: Why I took my kids’ toys away {& why they won’t get them back} - @bennbucko Tempting!
She repeats several times that she took everything away and makes it sound like it's all gone. But then she says, "When I do take down a toy for them to play with (no, I didn’t throw everything away), such as their Lego blocks or dress-up clothes or or their kitchen food & dishes, that one thing will entertain them for the entire day." So she didn't actually take it away. She just rations it out one at a time. That's a totally different thing, isn't it? - bentley
Yep. As much as I'd love the tidy house and simplicity, I don't think I'd actually do it. I love how kids incorporate all sorts of seemingly random items/toys into their games. I also think kids are a little spoiled/ungrateful by default. That usually changes with maturity. Usually... ;) - Melly Claus from FFHound!
