The creepy but definitive list of FriendFeed employees and where they work now. UPDATE: As of October 2, 2012, *three* still work at Facebook. Still true as of November 20, 2013.
Show all
With Paul's departure from Facebook today (November 12, 2010), I've heard several FFers talk about who's still at Facebook. I've seen various different numbers, none of which I think are accurate. This is my attempt to be more accurate. Information comes from publicly available sources where available. I drew on the list of FF employees from and - Stephen Mack

Ross Miller's account: - Rochelle
You are both thorough and scary :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
KLevin, tehcnically, this is your last day here and your not part of the FF team ! - Peter Dawson

Many thanks to people who provided info, especially Rochelle. - Stephen Mack
Rachel: That's definitely an awesome pic. I had a hard time choosing, you guys had a lot of great events. - Stephen Mack
Wow that is a great list I should probably try an add a few people. FriendFeed very good micro blogging, thanks. - Robert Bridge
Thanks Robert! Updated Ross's employer with information Anne B. found on his Facebook page. - Stephen Mack
He made them an offer that they could eventually refuse? - Stephen Mack
*snicker* - Big Joe Silence
Bump in honor of today's FB IPO. Time to do more creepy digging to see what's up with the FF team! - Stephen Mack
Updated Gary's entry. - Stephen Mack
Updated Jim's entry. He's apparently left Facebook. (I think I remember him confirming this when I had lunch with him last month!) - Stephen Mack
Updated Kevin's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 2012: Of the 14 people who were ever FriendFeed employees, 7 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Dan H., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B., Ross M.), and 1 is unknown (Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
Stephen, Goutham worked at RockYou for a bit in 2010 and now works for Google. Also, how have I not seen this thread before?! I remember you taking that picture at Kitchen Table - fun times :) - Ross Miller
now this is creepy.. some1 is stalking all the former employees of FF :)- - Peter Dawson
Peter, I wonder who? Ross, thanks! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jim is now at AeroFS. - Anne Bouey
Stephen, also Goutham was a summer intern the year before the Facebook buy. He did not transfer to Facebook. Ross did you transfer to Facebook, I can't remember. - Rachel Lea Fox
oh and I think Ben D. has left AOL. But I can't confirm that, I just seem to remember something about that. *shrug* - Rachel Lea Fox
Anne, AeroFS looks cool! Congrats Jim!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Ben Darnell is at Dropbox. - Tudor Bosman
Also, Dan Hsiao is no longer at Facebook (no more details). - Tudor Bosman
Goutham Patnaik is at Google. - Tudor Bosman
And yes, both Ross and Goutham were interns and were never Facebook employees after the acquisition. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor! Updated above. - Stephen Mack
Overall status as of May 22, 2012: Of the 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees plus 2 interns, 6 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Bret T., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), 6 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.), and 2 were interns who never went to Facebook (Ross M., Goutham P.). - Stephen Mack
And now there are five. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Indeed. I'll update when I get back from vacation -- by then we should know more about Bret's new venture. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oops, I see I never updated this. Stand by. - Stephen Mack
Bret's entry updated. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of June 15, 2012 (updated on September 13, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 5 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ana Y., Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 7 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
So basically we're gradually losing FF advocates within the mothership. :-( - DB, Lil LB's Dad
So clearly we need to either recruit current FB'ers to start using FF or get FF users employed FB, or both. - Andrew C (✔)
13 Sep 2012: what was the cause of the outage? But perhaps more importantly, *who* kindly fixed it (and from where) ? [If FB open sources FF, who would be willingly to maintain it?] - Adriano
And whoever it was, I'd happily buy them a nice dinner. - Meg VMeg
Per Tudor (in this thread it was Sanjeev who saved us. THANK YOU SANJEEV! - Stephen Mack
SANJEEV! - Josh Haley
I think Sanjeev is most eligible for a FF Rent Party of sorts. More of a FF Thank You party. - Janet
bump just to immortalise this pix and the start-up crew ! - Peter Dawson
Ana left Facebook, no more details. - Tudor Bosman
Thanks Tudor -- I updated her entry. Overall status, as of September 20, 2012): There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees. (In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M., Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.) So, of the 12 official FriendFeed employees: Currently, 4 of 12 are still at Facebook (Ben G., Casey M., Sanjeev S., and Tudor B), and 8 of 12 have departed from Facebook (Ana Y., Ben D., Bret T., Dan H., Gary B., Jim N., Kevin F., Paul B.). - Stephen Mack
Thanks Tudor and Stephen for the update. - Meg VMeg
Casey left Facebook as well (which, as he's Ana's husband, is no big surprise :) ). No more details. - Tudor Bosman
Ah, so three now. Thanks Tudor. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Not sure how I missed Tudor's update back on October 2, but I have now updated Casey's entry. - Stephen Mack
Overall status, as of October 2, 2012: There are 12 people who were ever FriendFeed employees.

An update of sorts, which I guess is in and of itself creepy. I was reading a recent piece on Google Reader, and I was struck by the fact that Darnell jumped from Google Reader to FriendFeed (there are similarities between the two orphaned applications, when you think about it). Then I saw that Darnell made his move right before the Facebook acquisition. After reading subsequent... more... - John E. Bredehoft
Bump. Updated a few folks above to show they're at Quip. I think it's still the case that 3 of the 12 are at Facebook (Ben, Sanjeev, Tudor). - Stephen Mack
Thanks for the update Stephen! - Zu from AOD
Bump! I think the count is still three. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Our Two New Little Boys! Year 2 with a black kitten for Halloween! #foxfosterkittens

The black one has stunning blue eyes. I've never seen that before! - Kevin Fox from iPhone
I've seen blue eyes on a black cat before. There could be some siamese in it's background. I can't really tell from the pic - does it have a wedge-shaped head? It might outgrow the blue eyes, though. How old is it? - Katy S
Cute cute cute cute cute!!! - Georgia
The blue eyed black cat is quite different. Cute. - Louis Gray
Katy, I'm not sure if he has a wedge-shaped face. I will get better photos of them soon. They are not brothers, the black one is around 5 weeks old, 18.7oz (so he could still outgrow his blue eyes, but also might not) and the tiger is about 6.5 or maybe 7 weeks 24.3 oz. - Rachel Lea Fox
The Chuck Jones classic "Feed the Kitty" has a black kitten with blue eyes. - Spidra Webster
Precciousss kittahz! You'z so cute you look yummy! LOL I'm just kidding, I wouldn't =) - Franc, a rememberer
wow both super cute, but yeah I've never seen a black cat with blue eyes before, my black cat has the yellowest eyes I've ever seen - Toby Graham
Toby, we aren't sure if he will keep them. At 5 weeks old he could still go either way, but we are excited to see if he does! They are both super sweeties! But baths are in their near future. If you all could smell them through friendfeed... well you would still find them cute, but stinky cute!! - Rachel Lea Fox
Awww.. my cat was dusty-black and hella stinky when I adopted him. xD - Franc, a rememberer
Blacky seems to be sick. He isn't eating much and is throwing up most of what he eats. We will be going in today. I'm sure his stinkiness isn't helped by his being sick. But we will get it all worked out. - Rachel Lea Fox
super bas lepa slika - Milenko Raljic
Ken Gidley
Had some episodes of vertigo over the past 24 hours when tilting my head. Dr. diagnosed me over the phone, and prescribed YouTube for cure. And it worked. Life is weird.
Video of how to do the cure: - Ken Gidley
After reading about this, I'm 95% sure other FF'ers treated themselves this way - Kevin Fox maybe? - Ken Gidley
Wow. How do you feel now? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Fine after 3 minutes of 'repositioning my ear rocks' :) - Ken Gidley
Before I did the 'maneuver', I could make the room spin by tilting my head to the left. After, I can't reproduce the effect. - Ken Gidley
I love living in the future. - Scott. Cat Herder.
Kevin had the same thing. Used the exact same video. It took a few times but it worked. So awesome. - Rachel Lea Fox
bump for Tamara - Ken Gidley
Rachel Lea Fox
Cool. Nice to see what 14mm looks like. - Rodfather
Love! - Georgia from iPhone
Georgia, thought you would like them. Especially the proposal one. Nice to know your daughter is now betrothed and you don't have to worry about all that pesky dating now huh!? Rodfather, glad you like. There are more photos with the new lens Here: and here: and here: - Rachel Lea Fox
Those are great :) - Rodfather
Great expressions on their faces! Also, cool colors and nice contrast between the red clothing and grass. :) - CarlC
Thanks Rodfather and Carl! :) - Rachel Lea Fox

Merry Eggnog! ... and jeez, what's with the rude comments? It's the holidays. #relax - Mona Nomura
I think everyone knew exactly what you meant jeremy :) - Roberto Bonini
Jeremy, perhaps there's a misunderstanding. As a rule, FriendFeeders celebrate Festivus - maybe someone mistook this thread for the Airing of the Grievences ceremony. In any event, I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you're gonna hear about it! - John Craft

Our data center (SVColo) performed an upgrade to their core network switch this evening. Something went wrong, and the operation took 30 minutes instead of 5. We apologize for the problem.
we are back - K.D.
I wondered. Glad you are back! - Rachel Lea Fox
No problem. Just don't scare us like that again ;) - Mark Krynsky
Ok otherwise it was going to be an topic on Twitter. - Madhav Tripathi
I forgive you. - Vezquex
I thought FriendFeed would have deployed mobile datacenters across the US by now. - imabonehead
Talk to Scoble about getting you guys on Rackspace :) - Jason Cronkhite from Alert Thingy
Jason: we would love to host FriendFeed but any hoster will screw up from time to time so I would rather win their business on the strength of our technology and service. Our CEO puts his personal cell phone out there (I don't know of any other hosting company CEO that does that, plus mine is +1-425-205-1921). not to mention I have some major motivation to make sure FriendFeed stays up. :-) - Robert Scoble
Compete with Wave and let people run their own Friendfeed servers. - Vezquex
Thanks! I almost sent SOS via Twitter...but u guys were fast! :D - Roshan Ramachandran
Oh, and it was nice of you guys to arrange your downtime for when I was flying and off the net! :-) - Robert Scoble
The upside is I saw the 'new and improved' twitter web interface for the first time. When do I have time to do that normally :D - Micah
@scoble, that's just it. I've only known Rackspace to screw up once and it was due to some guy driving a car into the data center. Plus, all the other perks you mentioned. - Jason Cronkhite
Andy, long time :) - Micah
Something changed with this downtime, didn't it? All images are now hosted on instead of the old - Mitch
Mitch, the friendfeed-media change was deployed yesterday and unrelated to the outage. - Paul Buchheit
siktirtmeyin datacenter'ınızı. FF gitti diye ödümüz koptu aq. - öküz

Kevin and Rachel did a great job with Haunted Fox Hollow this year.
(Please forgive the poor quality of the photos.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Every year I forget to go and every year I wish I went. :( - Louis Gray
I am making it my goal to go next year. By then I'll be out of school again and in between training seasons. I'm adding it to my calendar right now, dammit. - Hookuh Tinypants
Yay! Thanks for coming! - Kevin Fox
Awesome!! I'm so glad you came Stephen. I'm sorry I didn't make it back out to talk to you at the end of the line when they cut us off at the beginning. You know how it is, the Spider Queen has needs, the werewolf needed a new bone and the swamp hand stolen someones candy again. You can't disappoint the Spider Queen if you want to stay free of her web! ;) I have photos and video going up over on the Facebook page: I'll post at least the video here too! :) - Rachel Lea Fox
It was really great -- sorry I didn't get to talk longer with you Rachel (or even see Kevin at all), but I quite understand how busy you were! Next year, I gotta organize a FFmeetup there with Hookuh and anyone else who can go. - Stephen Mack
Indeed! I really wanted to go but between Nike and school, it just was not happening. 2014 will be my magical year of Finally Having A Life Again. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
If I'm welcome, I'll totally go next year! I want to meet the Foxes! - Akiva
Here is video from one section: And next year, we will still be here! Meeting us on haunt nights tends to be a drive-by like Stephen said, but we love everyone to come and love to meet everyone for whatever time period we can. Coming on a night we are open that is not Halloween is usually the best night to come. It is slightly less busy, shorter... more... - Rachel Lea Fox
Sounds good! - Akiva
It looks as great as ever! - Anne Bouey
Kevin or Rachel, do you still have the singing pumpkins installed? - Stephen Mack
Stephen, yes they are still up. They are not doing nightly shows right now, but if you let me know you are coming, I'm happy to start them for you. :) - Rachel Lea Fox
Rachel, the kids and I would love to come by and see! Would tonight work? - Stephen Mack
I'll message you to see when is good. :) - Rachel Lea Fox

Stupid Question: Can't y'all just raise the debt ceiling without having cuts or savings measures? I mean, just raise the limit and be done with it? Seems like it's getting over implicated cause some dudes need a political reach around.
I heard something on the radio today that Reagan raised the debt ceiling like eighteen times. - Derrick
Yes. That option has been available from the beginning, and it's still available now. - John (bird whisperer)
Yes, they could. They don't want to. I can't think of a single thing Congress ever passes that is simple and sticks to one issue only. Someone is always trying to attach riders and pork, etc. - Spidra Webster
Yep. Bush Snr about 8 I think. Clinton 4, Bush Jnr 7... - Johnny from iPhone
AIUI raising the debt ceiling is always used by the minority party to score cheap political points, but this is the first time everyone's pretending it can't simply be raised without a complicated deal about everything else. - Andrew C (✔)
Not for nothing... but if my interest rates and cost of living rises cause some dudes in another country can't get over their dance battle style wank session, excuse me if I get a little frustrated - Johnny from iPhone
What pisses me off is the fact that they are just refusing to pay the bills they incurred over the past year. I read an analogy earlier this week about it being like going to Best Buy, paying for a 50 inch plasma TV with a credit card and then deciding not to pay the credit card bill. I make purchases on my card that I have regretted, but I don't have the option of just deciding not to pay the bill - Congress seems to think it does... - WebGoddess
I'd like to see the Senate pass a bill to simply raise the debt ceiling as per usual, because just maybe they could get enough votes in the House from Republicans pissed off at the Tea Party trying to subvert their party. - Kevin Fox
I think they're still mad about the budget. - Heather
What's really whack is that credit agencies are threatening a downgrade of our credit if we don't address the deficit. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
if you were being held hostage in your own home with a time bomb about to go off, you could easily go to the door and walk out IF the hostage takers simply stepped aside. But they won't, so the simple exit doesn't happen. The U.S. as a whole is currently being held hostage by the tea partiers of the Republican party. - Frank Jernigan
It's not a stupid question! Just stupid power hungry people making the problem even stupider! Like Frank said, but I like to use the word stupid to describe this stupid situation! - Rachel Lea Fox
Maybe I don't pay attention enough to the gov. Has anyone on either side offered to reduce these benefits, funded by the tax paying public? - Janet

I have an honest question to ask folks: Those of you who don't have/want/like children, do you enjoy or are you okay with other peoples' children?
ABSOLUTELY! I get to sleep at night AND I don't have to pay for college. - Lisa L. Seifert
I guess I don't have children anymore, given they're out of college and high school, respectively. I LOVE babies! Which is what you'll have the year we're about to spend in Palmdale. #itsofficial - Mary B: #TeamMonique
:) Are you volunteering to babysit? - Mary Carmen
In an emergency, absolutely. I'm certainly hoping to hang out with both of you. ;-) - Mary B: #TeamMonique
definitely - Mary Carmen
That really depends. Some children are only well behaved when they aren't around their parents, for some reason. Some parents are just really annoying with how they are so inconsistent in discipline, or just plain bad (who really thinks that an empty threat of "if you don't behave we're going home" is going to be effective?). In general though, I find kids to be pretty frickin' tiring. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Let me answer as my pre-kid self: Most of my young adult life I really disliked other people's kids. I always thought I would have kids someday but I didn't like being around other people's kids at all and I saw them as a nuisance. In the couple of years leading up to having kids I started to change though, because I knew it was going to be part of my life. Now I like other people's kids if they are well behaved but if they aren't then I hate them and think the parents are obviously bad people. :-| - Brian Johns
I have always loved kids, and have no problem with other peoples' kids so long as they're not assholes. :) In the end all I have are other peoples' kids, so I just have to keep on liking 'em. <3 - Hookuh Tinypants
what the Tinypants said :) - holly #ravingfangirl
before we had kids of our own i already liked them. exceptions existed for bad/dangerous behaviour. like suddenly playing hacky sack with my testicles, for instance. bad parenting is often the cause of badly behaved children, tho, so i seldom blamed the kids initially. - Big Joe Silence
Yes! So much. I don't have, but do want and like children. On one side, I just find infants and young kids really adorable, like cats and corgis. :) But I also love that they're human. It just blows my mind to watch my friends' kids become little people. You know? More than just cuteness, but people with intelligence and sass and principle. It's just amazing to me. - Laura
Yep fun to play with even better to return all wired up - Steve C Team Marina from iPod
Yes. After all, I am Unca Steeben. :-) - Steven Perez from Android
Respectful children, no problem. It depends on the parenting too. When a mother tells a 3 year old to go play in the bathroom while she has her ultrasound - well no. Kid pulled the emergency cord before I could tell mom this was not a good idea. Mom then laughed and said we needed the practice. No, pulling three doctors from their patients is rude. - Janet
What Tinypants said. I regularly work with kids and I'm often up for babysitting, too. :) If they're old enough (as in, we don't need to use strollers), I love taking them to the zoo. Okay, I just like going to the zoo, but I'm happy to share my love of it with them. I often cook and bake with my niece and nephews. - Katy S
I fit all three categories (don't have/want/like) and I am generally not ok in environments with children, can tolerate them only for a short while. - grizabella
Screaming brats over-indulged by their parents: Not so much. Similarly over-indulged kids who think it's a great idea to mash fruit at a farmer's market. Not so much. Most kids, who are being themselves and not having tantrums (and that is most kids most of the time): Sure, they're fine. And some of them are just damn adorable. - Walt Crawford
I don't have children, but I am undecided if that will always be the case. Yep, I like other people's children, in general. But -- this may sound obvious -- I most enjoy the children of people I like lol. That being said, I suspect I lack the patience required to spend lots of time with kids. I'm best with teenagers, especially as a teacher. - Brent Schaus
I don't plan to have kids but I love being an Aunt to my kids both by blood and choice. Good kids, not brats is important. Also some ages are easier than others. My tolerance can be tested by some ages, but over all they are fun! - Rachel Lea Fox from iPhone
As Tinypants said. I really enjoy my friends' children, and other children in general. If they're being jerks, I feel much the same way I would with adults behaving that way, though I'd be less likely to blame them, since they're still growing up. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
I like a lot of kids better then a lot of parents. Demanding, spoiled behavior gets me riled up insanely fast, but even crying children I don't mind. I prefer kids that are interact-able (making faces at babies, playing or talking with toddlers and older kids) to kids who do their own thing. - Heather
I absolutely adore my nephews and niece. - Rodfather
Brent: I never thought I would be sufficiently patient with babies/toddlers. Until my first one arrived and that changed everything. I love hanging out with my 3 y/o more than anything in the world. - Stephan
In general, yes, I like other people's kids--once they're past needing diapers, anyway. I'm an auntie by choice and by temperament, though, so as much as I enjoy being around kids there's always just a wee bit more joy than sadness in returning them to their parents. - Kirsten
I am mostly ok with other people's children - I love my siblings' kids (and like other family, I also love that they're far enough away that I'm not a regular baby sitter.) Most of the kids in my family are also old enough that you can tell they're being raised well, with behavior expectations. (they all have their moments, and all kids do, but most of the time they're good kids, even... more... - ellbeecee
Being responsible for a kid 24/7 would drive me so rapidly up the wall there'd be a hole in the ceiling, but I *love* my weekly afternoon/evening with friends and their two-year-old. It helps that I'm close enough to the family that I can tell the kid off if he's being naughty, but not so close enough that I was ever expected to change nappies. :-) - Deborah Fitchett
What Laura H said upthread goes for me too. Also, I would be really sad to have a life without kids in it, even though I have no plans to have my own. - Marianne

Forgiving my lack of expression (and the terrible lighting), which pair of hipster glasses do you think I should purchase?
Photo on 5-24-13 at 2.57 PM.jpg
Show all
O hai Meg :) I like 1 and 4 - Hedgehog
I'm with Hedgie - lris
Me three. Um, by which I mean I'm with Hedgie and Iris in liking 1 and 4. Not 3 so much. - laura x
also agree with 1 and 4 - holly #ravingfangirl
I vote only #1. (Unless #4 is significantly cheaper.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Not that you can really tell here, but #1 is "striped evergreen": and #4 is a "sandalwood matte": - Meg VMeg
I like 1, 2, and 4. - Steele Lawman
2 or 4. depends on how hipster you want to go and what type of hipster you want to be and how "mad men inspired" you want to feel. - kendrak
KK, which one is more "mad men inspired", I can't tell. - Meg VMeg
Here's the color of the 2nd one: - Meg VMeg
4 i think? maybe 2? 3 and 5 are more early 80s. 1 is late 90s interpretation of 60s. (you can tell i spend a lot of time researching frames.) - kendrak
i dig the brushed opal. - kendrak
1 says I - Libraryman
1 - jambina
1 and/or 4. - Laura
1 or 4, but 1 is my favorite. - Marianne
2 is kind of endearing though. - Marianne
2 but can't go wrong with any - Steve C Team Marina
1 or 4. I like 1 more. - Lisa L. Seifert
1 and 4. Leaning more towards 1. - Corinne L
I and 4, but leaning toward 4. I kind of want them to be a little higher on your face... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Rudy, I think it's my ears (really) - Meg VMeg
2nd from bottom - Big Joe Silence
1 or 3 or 5. - Joe
Now can we write captions for each of the pics? Because, really, your expressions are awesome. For example, for #1: "Are really letting that newt crawl up your nose?" - maʀtha
1 or 4. - Jim #teamFFrank
#5 "I wouldn't do that if I were you..." - maʀtha
1. - Julian
1 - Micah
I am envious of your long hair. It's totally gorgeous. Does that information help you choose glasses? :D - Marie
Aw, thank you! I worry I'm too old for it. I also worry that my glasses won't match my hair if I (eventually) decide to color it. Woe, WOE, wooooooe is me. - Meg VMeg
Thank you guys so much, this is helpful! I'm trying to decide if #1 is too similar to my existing blue plastic frames (your affinity for #1 makes me feel much better about my current glasses), and I might look at #4 in a different color, though I'm not in love with the other colors available. - Meg VMeg
I love the fourth pair. - Jenny H. from Android
I don't know which one I'd buy. But the model in the pics is cute. - Just another Bubba

Someone got their card!! - Rachel Lea Fox
I wrote the one from Pablo & Buster. :D - NOT THE CRICKET
