I was just thinking how much I love the stuff TheNextWeb covers, and musing on it being our very own Zee. We knew him way back when. I mean, was TheNextWeb so big and comprehensive back in 2008? Was it even around? I hadn't heard of it till I came here. - Laura Norvig
Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
That is awesome Kamilah. The robot is Mo right? - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Yes, Mo asked to participate in the Ass Roasting. I wasn't really serious about it until Mo asked. Then I had to make it exist. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
LMAO, Kamilah so awesome, but you missed Sean's half-stache and goatee. Those would have made it even more awesome. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
aw, shoot. I checked, but I wasn't sure about the status of his facial hair. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
This is THE. BEST. THING. ON. THE. INTERNET. EVER. *weeps for joy* - MoTO Boychick Devil

So what will Kamilah, Princess Wave, sell her sketchbook for? It should be in the FriendFeed museum. - Louis Gray
Unholy mother of God! That's bad @$$ - Adrian
oh, though sketch is good, ever had an exhibition? - testbeta
I always knew it. The first time I saw Mo Kargas on FF, I knew he could roast asses with his eyes. - Joshua
Thanks, everyone :) I don't know that I can sell the original sketchbook, it's really my personal journal. As I say from time to time, though, my goal is to do some larger drawings and paintings, and eventually I hope to sell those, I just need, like, 48 hours in a day to get everything done... it's going to happen somehow, soon. I have had some of my work exhibited at various times,... more... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Kamilah, you're here! You should subscribe to me. :) - EricaJoy
What happens if I subscribe to you, Erica? Is something in particular happening over on your feed? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Nothing interesting happening on my feed but I bet $100 I could make your day. :) - EricaJoy
Really, now? Alright then, I'll bite... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
What is it about giant robots? I dunno. But they are full of win. Case in point: - MoTO Boychick Devil
By the way Kamilah? I want the MoBot on a t-shirt.... Pleeeaaaasssseeee??? - MoTO Boychick Devil
Yes, giant robots are made of win. I dunno, Barry... last time I tried to make a t-shirt, people got all excited but no-one bought it (DYSP!). I might just make a design but not bother to try setting up a Spreadshirt (or whichever one it was that I used) for it. I'll have to see. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Can you do pre-oders through paypal? - MoTO Boychick Devil
I could do that somehow, I guess. I've taken payments through PayPal before. I wonder what pose the MoBot should be in? Have some source material I could work from? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Kamilah, you are truly Princess Wave! Awesome, totally awesome! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Kamilah - this very well might be the art post that makes best of day and becomes part of a meta-sketch project. :-) - Katy S
Ya, JUST for this drawing, Sean. :P And Mo. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Robots are hot stuff right now - you should add this to the Spreadshirt marketplace! - spreadshirtcom

*bump* because it still makes me laugh and because I wish I had laser eyes like Mo... PEW PEW PEW! - MoTO Boychick Devil

*bump* for MOTO - Katy S
Does this make it bump? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I've got still a few Google Wave invites... anyone? - Jemm
I love this so - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android

If I thought that Google+ was going to be the network that got my friendfeed peeps to finally find a new home, I was wrong.
Some of us are at both places, but I didn't see the need to abandon ff just b/c there's a new shiny service. At least, not yet. - Katy S
It's definitely the place I would go if FF disappeared. However, it's not at FF feature levels yet. - That's So CAJ!
Until, there is actual blocking of people who annoy, there's no point. Also, FF is a hell of a lot better since most of the drama creators have disappeared. - Anika from Android
What Janet said. Just because your sneakers are old it doesn't mean you need new ones. Plus, new sneakers just aren't made the same. - Heather
I just don't like a lot of small things about g+ most of them are my same gripes from Buzz. I'm still planning my monthly g+ visit in a week or so. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
I would still want a lifestream site if FF went down. G+ doesn't do imports. - Rodfather
I was big into G+ until I got divorced whereupon I ran back to FriendFeed all blubbery-like. I want to get back into G+ but it's matter of finding the time; with my new job, I have precious little time for it. I need to get back in there and pretty much uncircle most everyone and start again. My account's a huge mess and I'm dreading going in there for the clean-up. I'm going to need a haazmat suit. - Akiva
You'll have to pry my Tumblrs from my cold dead hands. :D - El Conejo Viejo
I suspect Google+ was more the network that got your Facebook peeps to finally find a new home...and then barely use it. - Soup in a TARDIS
Anika, I thought there is blocking on G+? - Kol Tregaskes
Agree, G+ is not FF... Yet. I think in time it will gain the features us FriendFeeders take for granted. Groups are on the way, which will make a huge difference I think. - Kol Tregaskes
For me though, I use Google+ more than FF now just because very few chat to me on FF nowadays :-( and more chat to me on G+. - Kol Tregaskes
Really? That's what you thought? - Jim #teamFFrank
Like a lot of us, I'm on both, but there's a lot of what feels like crowding on Google+ right now which I'm sure will settle down as people figure out what interests them. I'm also not fond of their 'we kick people off' tendencies, which I'm hoping they'll amend. - Jennifer Dittrich
what is your g+ account? mine is look me up and I'll follow you if I know where your account is. - Dan owns
I'm everywhere. - Eric - Final Countdown
^ Like Elvis. And God. Wait... - Lisa L. Seifert from Android
Best feature of FriendFeed: It's not as popular...oh, and people can't make it *my* task to avoid following them. "Here, surely you really want to see my SEO spam" is, I think, the worst feature of G+. - walt crawford
Laura Norvig
I know this is beating a dead horse, but it still cracks me up when people ooh and ah about the realtime posting/commenting updating on google plus when we've been living with it here for all these years.
OMG MY COMMENT JUST TOTALLY UPDATED RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES. *calls everyone she knows* - Hookuh Tinypants
Ah, but I've operated FF in pause mode ever since I got here...and so far I haven't located the pause mode for G+. I'm sure they'll have one eventually. Real-time updating gives me vertigo. - walt crawford
And it's actually not even up to par with FF - Shevonne
Well FF is a more mature product and service in terms of Stream..if only Realtime Multiuser Vid Chat was introduced. .it would have been a killer app :)- - Peter Dawson
Yeah, it kinda drags compared to the slickness of FF realtime. - Gus
Victor Ganata
I don't know if how Friendfeed collapses comments is necessarily better than how Google+ does it, but being used to Friendfeed's method makes me dislike Google+'s method.
FF is more space efficient, so I like it better. - Todd Hoff
Plus G+ is dumb. Sometimes I see a post with 2 comments, and it has collapsed the first one. You click to expand, and the comment is just one line, and is the exact same height as the "click here to expand" message. - Stephen Mack
DB, Lil LB's Dad
Still trying to wrap my mind around Google+. I am confronting similar feelings towards this that I had towards Google Buzz. Those feelings can be summed up by Meh. Everything I'm reading and watching says it's great but I think I still prefer FF. Maybe I'm just stubborn and stuck in my ways but I just don't get G+ (yet).

Proof that Google is racist.
holy shit... - Rafael
Uh.. WHOA! - Linda Lawrey
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that the people at Google put this in there on purpose. - Akiva
lol - conspiracy! - Jesse Stay
They may want to add an exception for that, though. :-) - Jesse Stay
are u serious thomas? wtf? - teymur madjderey
If you're banking on Google to recover your car after a grand thief auto, you might want to try other resources. Bing? - Micah
Me and my family just picked ourselves up off the floor and dried our eyes after ROFL'ing profusely at this... - Rahsheen
LOL! <sarcasm>I am going to go talk to the Race Czar's about this immediately!</sarcasm> - EricaJoy
if you search for "blakc peolpestole my car" you can see the same result.. just change for the correct one and take a print screen... hahaha this is hell funny - Rafael
FAIL! - Wayne Sutton
huh...I tried both and neither gave a 'did you mean....' Why the difference? - George Gray
George, this was from earlier. I think it's probably been fixed by now. - Thomas Hawk
I can't reproduce the results either. Even more proof that Google's damage control department works real f-a-s-t - BLOGBloke
I can reproduce these results (as it's fake). 1 - Do a google search for 'balck people stole my car' 2 - when the results come back, in the search box type 'white people stole my car'. 3 - Screenshot and fool everyone. - Will Higgins™
Thomas...ah...I was catching up on my feed and didn't notice when the message posted. Still, I have noticed different results when using Google from: the browser search bar, going right to and when logged into google via iGoogle. Weird. - George Gray
This reminds me of how commercials for home alarm systems always feature white criminals. - Akiva
Dude, you win 1000 times over for use of the word 'colored'. I'm about as far from a racist as you can get but that shit cracks me up every time. - Akiva
これはひどい - as365n2
i think that google isnt racist, but people that use it yes..infact google shows firstly the most popular results.....this is my opinion..and please apologize me formy english..i'm italian!w La pizza! - Lyssa
they did it as the Chinese government did. - xia
seems they fix it somehow. - Mike
Lyssa's right. Google is a mirror. - Jim #teamFFrank

Massive malaria vaccine trial has begun in Africa | Booster Shots | Los Angeles Times -
Massive malaria vaccine trial has begun in Africa | Booster Shots | Los Angeles Times
"A massive Phase 3 trial of a malaria vaccine is now underway in Africa, with 5,000 children enrolled already out of a target population of 16,000. If results are favorable, marketing approval could be sought as early as 2012, making it the first commercial vaccine available for the disease, researchers said Tuesday in announcing the trial at the 5th Multilateral Initiative on Malaria Pan-African Malaria Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. "This is a tremendous moment in the fight against malaria and the culmination of more than two decades of research, including 10 years of clinical trials in Africa," said Dr. Joe Cohen, vice president of research and development, vaccines for emerging disease and HIV, at GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, which is producing the vaccine. Cohen is a co-inventor of the vaccine. Malaria is a major health problem around the world. It kills more than 1 million people each year, 90% of them in sub-Saharan Africa and 80% of them younger than 5. It makes 300 million... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"But vaccines have historically proved the best technique for controlling infectious diseases, and researchers have high hopes for the new vaccine, called RTS,S/AS2A, or Mosquirix. The first-generation vaccine is unlikley to provide more than 50% protection, but researchers believe that even that level of efficacy could make major inroads against the disease and lay the foundation for... more... - Anne Bouey
"Producing a malaria vaccine has proved difficult because of the complicated life cycle of the mosquito-borne Plasmodium parasites that cause the disease. The cycle begins when infected mosquitos bite humans, injecting them with a form of the parasite called a sporozoite. The sporozoites invade the liver and begin reproducing in a new form called merozoites. Some merozoites can remain... more... - Anne Bouey
"GlaxoSmithKline has not said how much the vaccine will sell for, but company chief executive Andrew Witty said last week that price would be no hurdle if the vaccine works. "We are not going to let price get in the way of access for malaria vaccines," he said at a news conference. The company has already invested $300 million in the vaccine and expects to invest an additional $100... more... - Anne Bouey
