congrats to @StevenHodson, @Rizzn and @SeanPAune who launched a group blog TheCynicalBastards - a site to watch
Subscribed. - Patrick Jordan
Should be a fun blog to watch and not to be confused with the opinionated nothing like quality opinion and cynicism .. here is the definition of cynicism - John Furrier
Thanks muchly! We all enjoyed working together at Mashable, so once we all de-coupled from there, we couldn't think of a reason to find a way to team up again. - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
Thanks for the well wishes... we will try to be just a little bit more cynical for you ;) - Sean P. Aune
cynical is good - the difference between trash and cynicism is about being clever and smart. I'm sure you guys will do great.. tongues in cheeks and all - John Furrier

Right now, Mark Zuckerberg is sitting in a dark room, looking at monitors on the screen. A big red button marked "Kill Friendfeed" sits on the armchair to his right. As he giggles menacingly under his breath, his finger hovers ever-so-gently over the button... - Fleagle

You can now get a daily or weekly email digest for anybody's feed on FriendFeed. You'll get a daily or weekly email with the most popular posts from that person's feed. To get the email, click the "Email/IM" link at the top of anyone's feed, and select the "Best of day" or "Best of week" email option.

You can see all of your email settings at - Bret Taylor
Thanks Bret! :) - Matt Ruiz
Thanks to Kevin for doing a great design for what turned out to be a more complex set of UI options than we had originally anticipated, and thanks to Tudor for implementing the email backend. - Bret Taylor
Great! Thanks! Love FF! - Scott Monaco
I now get the FriendFeed Feedback posts as a Best of Day email so it doesn't fill up my feed, but I don't miss feedback. I also set up a "Best of Day" email for my "Technology people" friend list so I get a pretty good overview of tech news every day via email. - Bret Taylor
This is a really cool idea Bret, I wish you can make that an RSS feed option as well. I'd be much more likely to read summaries in RSS than in email. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Lovely. Thanks guys. - Mitchell Tsai
Casey: Thanks for the tip. What's the 7 before the "?" mean in the URL? The number of likes or replies needed to be included? - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
this is killer, the random influx of email during the day was kinda getting fail-ish. I love the daily digest. - Drew Lucas
Very cool! Any way to get archives of previous months? (especially helpful for those of us who leave the internet for weeks at a time...) - Mitchell Tsai
WOW. that's really helpful! - K.D.
Looks like a great addition for those who are not embedded on the site. Nice intro. - Louis Gray
Cool! - Josh Haley
Ahsan: it is somewhat random right now when the emails are sent, but we built in the backend capability to control what time they are sent, and we plan on exposing that control to users in the future. Right now, it is kind of random - sorry! - Bret Taylor
Cool! can i get a daily or weekly email digest for the "Saved searches"? - 0M0M from email
This will be incredibly useful. Thanks to all involved in the design and execution. - Kathy Fitch
Nice addition! - Michael Fidler
But what exactly is "Best"? Is it anything that has a certain number of likes/comments? - Laura Norvig
@Bret LOL THAT WAS MY PROJECT! I will release it tomorrow. But you've also did it and killed my friendfeed application **sigh** But mine has multi-reporting weekly-daily-monthly at the same time and adjustable entry count! - Alp
@Bret please consolidate me or I won't code new apps with you api! :-) - Alp
Alp: we were not trying to withhold data. Later today the documentation will be updated to reflect the ability to obtain "Best of" for users. The feed id will be USERNAME/summary/N (similar to "Best of" for lists) - Benjamin Golub
Hi Ben, that is pretty funny, I tried that URL earlier today to see if it has been secretly released :) - Paul Kinlan
Bret: While Twitter struggle to keep their fail whale under control, you guys are developing stuff like this. Amazing - Thanks! - Jim Connolly
awesome feature, this will be highly useful for my corporate group ideas / content sharing; projects, etc.... THANK YOU :) - Susan Beebe
Great work. I especially like that it works on lists too. - Meryn Stol
my inbox might say different, but I like that :-) - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Wow, this is really neat! And it links into the idea I expressed earlier, re: reducing signup friction / enabling limited guest privileges. Imagine if I could embed one of my FF rooms on my personal web site, and enable people to subscribe to that feed by e-mail with just a couple of clicks... rather than saying "you can get e-mail notifications but you have to sign up for Friendfeed first." "sign up" -- though admirably lightweight on FF -- is still a huge barrier. - Adam Lasnik
is there a love button cause I dont like this option I LOVE this option..great work guys - (jeff)isageek
Three options I would like (1) Can I select "top 100" instead of "top 30"? (2) Could I select both "best of day" and "best of week"? (3) How about older timeperiods? I'd love to get an e-mail with stuff from last week or Mar 2009? Start & end dates? Anything to help me read FriendFeed off-line would be great since I spend long periods off-line at festivals (especially during summer time) or overseas. - Awesome job guys! - Mitchell Tsai
So this works on groups too, cool! But we still cannot see Best of for groups on the site on friends lists. :-( I have several friends lists that include just groups and when I select to view the best of the page it's empty (even though if I got to the individual best of for those groups there are entries there). - Kol Tregaskes
does anyone know of a web service that can do this? (I'm thinking weekly email updates of my favorite feeds/people) I don't think there's anything like friendfeed .. - Franc, a rememberer
That's a cool feature - Xitong Liu
Emails no longer get sent except for Subscriptions. The last non-sub email I recieved was July 15th, 2011. - NOT THE CRICKET

Ross: Competing with The Google? - Kevin Fox
The Oval Office -> The Office; The West Wing -> The Wing; Air Force One -> The One - Mitch

It's a fight to see which one will be "The Barn". Pottery Barn or Dress Barn.... - manielse (Mark Nielsen)

I think they should have gone with "Teh Shack" - George S.

Facebook = The FACE! // Google = The Goog // Gamestop = The Stop // Walmart = The Wall // K-mart = The K! // White Castle = The Castle - ЯIИGҜIИG
Actually they should have went with "PartsShack". It's still the main reason why most people go specifically to their stores, for miscellaneous electronic extras you need fast. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I'm sure Taco Bell would fight Ma Bell for The Bell - Ian Betteridge
Albertson's Safeways, Target, Macy's, Home Depot--> "The store" // Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Ebay, MySpace --> "The Internet" - Roger N

#SaturdayFF Whenever I’m walking outside listening to my iPhone(Pod), (especially yesterday listening to my Guetta & Kanye playlist) I just feel this huge URGE to break out with the rhythm and DANCE! Damn boy! I want to grab random passerbys on the street as my dance partners for the moment, especially those people who just seem so sad,
I want to tell them it’s okay, that they’re beautiful and so is life, see if I can make em smile; if only for a moment :) Almost like I’m in a club, I wanna move it, twirl it, skip along, put my hands in the Aaiiirr...Alas, I don’t want to get arrested, but once I do get to my condo, and no one’s watching. I immediately shake it up down the hallway, tear it up in the elevator, right up until I finally get back to my place. I <3 IT! ~ I know, crazy right xD - sofarsoShawn
<3 - Kisha
<3 <3 :) - Tamara J. B.
That's awesome. I used to feel that way sometimes after way, way too many Vodka and Red Bulls. Think your way is far superior. - Patrick Jordan
:) after enough vod & Red Bull, I probably would actualize my urge to dance (and get arrested) - sofarsoShawn
<3 Shawn - Jenny from Android
I think I should've been arrested on many occasions, just for how shite my dancing was. - Patrick Jordan

Robert Scoble
I just posted why FriendFeed will go mainstream:
Do you use Alert Thingy or any of the desktop apps for Friendfeed, or just keep the site open? - Patrick Jordan
I agree, FriendFeed will go mainstream if people start using more of these online services - Justin Yost
I just keep the site open and refresh a lot. - Robert Scoble
That was an awesome and relevant post! Thanks Rob! - Drew Lucas
I use twhirl for updates - Aura Mae from twhirl
I use twhirl, but it keeps moving the screen while I'm typing if there is an update. Hence these random bits of comment you get sometimes... - Rahsheen from twhirl
Using twhirl also. Just not enough screen space there, and things to roll off. Web page is easier. - Todd Jordan
Well said Robert, good article on why FriendFeed will go mainstream. - Mike Reynolds
FF is definitely gonna need a better interface if it IS going to be useable by non-geeks - Rahsheen
I was thinking the same thing, Jason. I don't think my mom would ever be able to handle FF, but I'm sure most geeks/social media addicts will love it and it will be a success - Rahsheen
my mom is not a good design test case i doubt anyone's mom is- the person who wants to be highly digitally connected, is. - Nathan Eckenrode
Robert, I know you didn't intend it, but your two part piece is a great friendfeed newbie tutorial. Thanks. Also, again don't know if it was intentional, but you forgot to include this friendfeed user: ;-) - Robert Stevens
Robert Stevens that user needs to engage people with the tools as adults who vote not speakat them like children who must be contained. - Nathan Eckenrode
Well, my mom is a programmer and uses online communications to coordinate her team, so I guess she is not the most common "mom" example :) - Rahsheen from twhirl
Nathan Eckenrode absolutely right about that user needing to engage. Check her friendfeed page. Not a single subscription. - Robert Stevens
and not everyone's mom is theprototypical bumbler that frequently gets assigned t that architypical user group - Nathan Eckenrode
it does make a good friendfeed tutorial, but I don't think it's going mainstream without a serious interface improvement. Its ass ugly! - Justin Flood @justinflood from twhirl
It's not even that it's ugly, it's that it's not really useable. I think it was created to provide as much as possible, but with the understanding that someone would create decent filters/clients for it for regular consumption. - Rahsheen
I this that whether FF goes mainstream depends mostly on us. - funkyboy
@PatrickJordan - using Twhirl client. - Todd Jordan
Well said. Not entirely certain I agree or disagree with your thoughts, but either way you do present a compelling argument for FF. I think the number one reason that will hold back adoption of a mainstream FF is the benefit to the average user. Unless that is articulated so the *average user* can understand, they will not see the desire to attach themselves to another service. The question at this point is what can, or should, FF do to attract average users? - Scott Jarkoff
@ScottJarkoff - well, partnerships would help. When you sign up for a service, if that service had a check box to add that feed to Friendfeed, it'd be a done deal. - Todd Jordan
@Todd: Agreed. But that begs the question, how would such a partnership benefit the service you're signing up for? There has to be some mutual benefit to a partnership like that. The obvious benefit is for FF, but what does everyone else gain through such an arrangement? - Scott Jarkoff
Scott: I'm not so sure that FriendFeed should worry TOO much about that right now. Instead, make the system of great utility to advanced users like me and you. If they make it easy for me to get rid of the noise and present it to everyone else, then it'll take off. - Robert Scoble
Why FriendFeed WON'T Go Mainstream: 1.) in the mainstream, people don't want to be THIS informed. That's probably equally good for them, and good for those of us who do want to be this informed! 2.) Steve Case subscribed, friended some people and then...didn't engage at all. He's my go-to guy for what the mainstream will eat up like ice cream. - Robert Seidman
Robert: But how does such usage translate over to the average user? Just because us mega-geeks can use FF, and more importantly we can understand it, does not mean that the average user will comprehend why it is useful to them. _Something_ needs to bridge that gap, no? - Scott Jarkoff
Last night I tried to explain FriendFeed and even Twitter to my friend the cop. While he has a Facebook profile, He Just. Didn't. Get It. The harder I tried to explain, the more he just looked at me like I just landed from Venus. - Capn' One Eye - adrift
FF can't go mainstream and I said as much in my comment on your blog post, which is awaiting moderation I guess :(. Main point - I could never explain FF to any of my non techy friends...never - Jennifer Van Grove from twhirl
Alert Thingy helps with the interface 'issues'. I think it has really helped with adoption / holding onto users - John Duff from Alert Thingy
@Geoff Longman - we are from Venus! ;-) welcome to my planet! - Susan Beebe
No doubt FF will go mainstream. It must over come the too many sites back lash, but over time this is a winner. - Russellreno
@patrick I just keep it open, until Firefox crashes! - Prolific Programmer
#humdaybumpday "5. It is freaking fast and much more reliable than Twitter. Today I’ve been putting dozens of Tweets into Twitter and they show up in FriendFeed BEFORE I can refresh the page.

How is it? - Katy S
The sauce was great, the polenta was bland. Will use some aromatics and maybe a broth in the future in its preparation as opposed to water. It *was* good *with* the sauce though. If not bland. - Derrick
Easiest way to make it unbland - after you add the butter, add a massive handful of parmesan cheese and some black pepper. I rarely make my polenta without parmesan and black pepper. (too many memories of bland polenta as a's like plain grits...*shudder*) - Hookuh Tinypants
That's it, tinypants. I was trying to follow the basic simple recipe before getting all fancy with it. But next time, it's on. - Derrick
Yeah, basic polenta is meant to be eaten with a load of food on top of it, or as a base for mixing in shit. Though my grandmother used to try to get me to eat plain bowls of it, telling me it'd help me grow strong. I was like...Bitch, you crazy. - Hookuh Tinypants
I recommend trying your hand at mixing in basil or sage. Both go great, depending on what you want to accompany it with. Also roasted red peppers diced up and tossed in with the basil (or even by itself) is NOM. Or diced sauteed onions. But still, at the very least, parmesan cheese or some derivative thereof. Fuck, now I'm hungry. - Hookuh Tinypants

The only public school in my area is funded by a program that gives precedence to children of "poor" families so Zoe isn't able to attend this school which means I have to put her in a private school again. I apparently make too much money despite being a single parent with two kids.
So I have to put her in a private school again which equals more bills (tuition, fundraisers, donations) and I'm already stretched as it is. I'm going to have to move into a cheaper place which means throwing my kids' world into complete disarray. GRRR!!! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Are you serious?! I've never heard of kids being turned away from public schools. What grade is she in? - Jenny from Android
How far is the next school? If there are no public schools except this one and it really does selectively accept students, I think other public schools (even those at a distance) are required to provide transportation. - Soup in a TARDIS
Soup, yeah, I need to check the next school in our area. It isn't too far away so it shouldn't be a problem transportation-wise but since I need to move it may put me out of the "area." I'm not sure. I'm going to have to move in with my parents at this point. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Jenny, she's in pre-k again this year since she turns 5 in January versus September she can't start kindergarten until next year. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Oh, that makes more sense, then. I don't think any of the public schools in my area offer any sort of pre-k services. - Jenny from Android
:( - #cryptic
:(( - Kisha
Yeah, it's great that she can be in pre-k. She learned her letters, numbers and can write her name ok plus it gets her to spend her energy during the day. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The root of the issue is more money coming out of my pocket than staying inside my pocket. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Ohhh, this is a pre-K issue. In that case you might be out of luck. Is the nearby program funded by Headstart? I might be able to help you get through the red tape on that if it is. - Soup in a TARDIS
Actually yes! Zoe was in Head Start when she was 1yo getting speech therapy since she was a late talker. The public school near me is part of Head Start and they told me I make too much money for them to accept Zoe. When she was in Head Start as a baby I was freelancing so I would have paychecks that were smaller because it wasn't steady work. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from FFHound(roid)!
Let me talk to my mother (who used to run Head Start at a number of districts) and see if I can get some tips. Sometimes there are ways to access programs like this that aren't immediately apparent. - Soup in a TARDIS
Thank you! *hugs* - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Oh Michelle that's rough! :/ - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Okay, here's the skinny. Students are accepted into Head Start on a ranked basis with students who come from the most dire circumstances (according the scale/chart they likely provided you with) having higher rankings. Even qualified students can be denied if there is a full class of higher ranked students. However all Head Start programs have to have a certain percentage of students... more... - Soup in a TARDIS
Oh thank you! Yes she aged out of speech therapy and no longer qualifies. She doesn't have an IEP number either though she did before. I could push for another test but they'll say she doesn't need speech therapy as she does talk now and in both English and Spanish no less! Her trouble with R's, T's, and D's are considered normal for her age. Thank you for digging for more info though, I do appreciate it! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from FFHound(roid)!
No problem. I'm sorry I wasn't able to provide better news. - Soup in a TARDIS

I'm emailing my BFF and I'm like, "What the fuck man, if people like us can't find love then what the hell?!? We're AWESOME PEOPLE!" He's like, "Yeah, we're awesome, but we're old farts." Ya'll have no idea how much he makes me laugh! XD
And then he replies calling me "old girl." :D - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Peter Ustinov - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sir Peter Alexander Ustinov CBE ( /ˈjuːstɪnɒf/ or /ˈuːstɪnɒf/;[1] 16 April 1921 – 28 March 2004) was an English actor, writer and dramatist. He was also renowned as a filmmaker, theatre and opera director, stage designer, author, screenwriter, comedian, humourist, newspaper and magazine columnist, radio broadcaster and television presenter. A noted wit and raconteur, he was, for much of his career, a fixture on television talk shows and lecture circuits, as well as a respected intellectual and diplomat who, in addition to his various academic posts, served as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and President of the World Federalist Movement. Ustinov was the winner of numerous awards over his life, including Academy Awards, Emmy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards, as well the recipient of governmental honours from, amongst others, the United Kingdom, France and Germany. He displayed a unique cultural versatility that has frequently earned him the accolade of a Renaissance Man. Miklós... more... - Halil from Bookmarklet
Ustinov was born Peter Alexander Baron von Ustinow in Swiss Cottage, London. His father, Jona (born Jonah Freiherr von Ustinow), nicknamed "Klop" (Russian: Клоп, "bed-bug"), was of Russian, German and Ethiopian noble[2] descent, and had served as a lieutenant in the Imperial German Air Force in World War I.

London riots: Wandsworth council moves to evict mother of charged boy
"Conservative-run Wandsworth council in south London has started eviction proceedings against a woman whose son appeared in court charged in connection with the riots in Clapham Junction. It is the first local authority to issue an eviction notice on a tenant in the wake of the riots although Westminster, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Fulham, Nottingham and Salford councils have all said they will consider evicting those found to have taken part in the unrest." - M F from Bookmarklet
This will really go a long way to adressing the underlying social malaise that led to the riots! - Son of Groucho
I don't believe that all parents are always to blame, some have tried very hard to the best of their abilities but have children who are out of control and need proper support, ending up homeless is the last thing they need. Many of these kids will have siblings who have done nothing wrong why do they have to pay for it and lose their home? - M F
You can hardly call evicting an entire family justice. - Stephan from iPhone

It might turn out to be an expensive and pointless exercise. It is not going to work as a deterrent either, teenagers often act on the spur of the moment, think they are immortal and that they will never get caught otherwise they would never do drugs, joyride or other very stupid things teenagers do. - M F

All of the signs in my life - books and videos I come across, horoscopes, friend's comments, my son's wishes when we say grace - are urging me to embrace optimism, hope and gratitude this week.
