this is underfaksink at its worzt - pb:
Petr, I have no idea what you mean, but thank you. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol .. :] that, partially, might have been the purpose.... I don't know it exactly either. :] .. was I reflecting on a cat under the fax, and that it is hard to fax that way ... /?:] ... "underfaxing at its worst" .. - pb:
Ah, OK, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
there ya have me ! :] .... see, to be honest with you, i saw this pic couple days ago, but i let it go, without posting it ..... what does that make me? :] - pb:
OMGosh, just 23 more likes to beat this: ;-) - Kol Tregaskes

Just 5 more likes needed. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Fax, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes

I couldn't believe it when I logged on from the morning over posting it and saw it was at something 200 likes! You all have a strange fetish with cats and fax machines, hehe. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Am I the only one who saw this and their first thought was - My goodness did someone break that cats neck? It still freaks me out a little - Steve C, Team Marina
Steve, it does look a little out of place, but cats are pretty bendy. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
They fax much better if you flatten them first. What? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
LOL, Kevin. - Kol Tregaskes
i can also imagine the cat going there cause it is snug and warm - Iphigenie
Ey, it would be a tad warm on there, especially after a long working day. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Caption which needs to be said aloud: Uh Ohz, I'm totally FAXED! - sofarsoShawn
Hehe, Shawn. 10 more for the big 5-0-0. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Countdown! 8 more now! - Mike Nayyar

FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more -
FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more
"Today we are launching version 2 of the FriendFeed API for beta testing. We focused on making the API simpler to use, and we added number of compelling new features." Documentation: - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
OAuth? Sweet. Thanks a lot for all the new good stuff in the API: can't wait to use it. - Mark Trapp
very nice. great work! - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
Yet another reason to like Bret. :-) - Jesse Stay
Great!!! - YungSang from FriendFoo
nice! - Daniel Rust
good job guys, I bet devs are jumping high right now - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Sweet, congrats! - Ivan Zuzak
nice, good to see OAuth support, this will enable a larger 3rd party ecosphere around FriendFeed, I hope - Jeroen De Miranda
After going through the documentation and playing around with some feeds, I love the fact that you can now see the subscriber lists of people who have their feeds set to private as long as you are subscribed to them and authenticate (mimicking the main site functionality). One thing that's absent is a discussion of Direct Messages. Do they show up in feeds if you authenticate? How do we find just direct messages? - Mark Trapp
Mark: direct messages are accessed using the feed ID "filter/direct". Read more about feed IDs at Also direct messages appear in the "home" feed. - Benjamin Golub
Benjamin: ahhh, I see it now. I missed it when skimming that list over. Thanks! - Mark Trapp
Can you post the wget version of the command line? - Gabe
Gabe: wget --user=bgolub --password=passwd --post-file=MyPhoto.jpg should work. In theory. Edit: nope. I'm not sure it's possible to do with wget. - Mark Trapp
Thanks God it is New API. - AlpB. from iPod
Nice progress here with this release! - Micah
I love it! - friday night
Why is wget questionable? - Gabe
Gabe: wget doesn't support multipart forms as a design decision. If you post a file, FriendFeed returns a 404, and if you post data, the query is too long for wget to handle. - Mark Trapp
Good work, look forward to seeing what developers can create - Joe Dawson
doublepluslike - Vezquex
curl FTW. - Jeremy Kunz
This is great, FriendFeed team. Good job. - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Woowoo, bgolub's password is “passwd” ;-) - Amit Patel
Amit: I wonder how many people tested that :) - Benjamin Golub
Thanks to bgolub posting his password, I now have all of FriendFeed's secret documents about notorious users, useless metrics, Justin Timberlake's promoting FF on Oprah's show, hiring Colbert as a spokesperson, Ev Williams being just a “distraction”. TechCrunch is going to love this! ;) - Amit Patel
Yes big big thanks to the whole team for all their hard work!! - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ from iPhone
thank you;) waiting for the release :) loving clone - abdellah from FriendFeed API Example
Yay subscribers exposed! - EricaJoy
Finally OAuth, I had a hard time memorizing my remote key. - Hugh Isaacs II
This is indeed very cool, anybody started on a c# version? - Jesper Lind

Unladen Swallow :: Python 3’s Best Feature . [forthcoming PEP] -
Unladen Swallow :: Python 3’s Best Feature . [forthcoming PEP]
"PEP is coming, proposing Unladen Swallow [see for details] be merged back to Python-core – specifically, the Python 3k branch. Yeah, that’s right – a PEP to merge Unladen Swallow back into the mothership, but to Py3k only. The PEP should go out for review soon, probably within the next two weeks – and more details/information will be coming out at PyCon in February." - Adriano from Bookmarklet
At the moment it is slower and uses 2x RAM... Dependency on LLVM adds maintenance complexity and ruins control over toolset stack. Will merging into Py3k pay out? Will it drive library migrations into Py3k? - Myroslav Opyr
20 Jan update... PEP 3146 by Collin Winter: - Adriano
ATLANTA, GA - FEB 10, 2010 Python 3 will zoom forward at PyCon 2010 with the incorporation of Unladen Swallow, a performance-boosting branch of Python initiated by engineers from Google. - Adriano

Google to Add Social Features to Gmail -
"Later this week, Google will unveil add-ons to Gmail that let people post and view messages about their day-to-day activities, according to a person at Google briefed on the company’s plans. This simple tweak to Gmail will let Google mimic the status updates that have driven much of Facebook and Twitter’s success, as people return to the services again and again to check out what their friends and co-workers are doing." - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
There's so much Buzz in this area... - Paul Buchheit
Apparently it's being announced tomorrow at 10am: - Paul Buchheit
This would be extremely difficult to get right. Making the assumption that correspondents (even frequent correspondents) equate to a privacy-relaxed social circle would be a mistake. I hope they have something more elegant than a manual 'block this person from seeing my posts' mechanism. I'm looking forward to seeing what it is. - Kevin Fox
great. all we needed. yet another Productivity Killer. Which reminds me how dead is Google Wave? - Nikos Kouremenos
Wave is not dead. It's a completely separate team from Gmail. - Paul Buchheit
Nikos might mean the activity on his own Wave account. I logged in to Wave last Tuesday and found that of the 100 or so of my friend who gave Wave a try, none of them seem to be doing anything anymore (at least that they add me to). I'm sure it's thriving in some small circles, and perhaps that's what it's intended for, but I haven't seen any general uptake. - Kevin Fox
That's cool - Xitong Liu
Wave on Chrome is probably 5x faster than it was 2 months ago. I just noticed that last week. That means for the first time I can use it for real work. - Daniel Dulitz
Wave is not a social network, and was never intended to be one, afaict. It is an incredibly useful tool for groups (work or otherwise) to stay in sync, have complex discussions, build design docs, etc., where giant email threads tend to turn into clusterfscks. @Daniel: Yeah, I notice they seem to have pushed on-demand wave rendering, which has made a huge difference in performance. - Joel Webber
Wave just hurts my head. It feels like they overreached without anyone pushing them back on the usability front. - Kevin Fox
Wave is a great alternative to mailing lists for developers to collaborate. I'm not sure it's a replacement for social aspects of email, it's more a replacement for work-aspects of email. - Ray Cromwell
I agree with Kevin, this will be VERY difficult to get right.. I haven't been impressed with Google's social features to date.. they seem more like an after thought added as a disjoint layer than a solution. If Google Reader's comments and contact/group mechanism is any example it will be a nightmare. Friend Connect is missing some very basic functionality that makes it a non-starter out of the gate. I hope they get this one right!! - Chris Myles
Yup. As I mentioned though, *how* you define that list will be important. FB, Twitter and other social sites let you grab your Google contact list and checkmark which ones you want to add to your social circle. Can Google do something smarter than a fully manual opt-in process? I'm just looking forward to their take on the problem. - Kevin Fox
Gary, that works for privacy during *broadcast* but not during conversation. For example in Reader the person who shares the post determines who gets to see it's comments. If I want to add to a conversation and share the same comment with my friends (and guarantee they'll see it) I have to duplicate the comment and add it to my own share. That's not easy or social !! - Chris Myles
Seems to me like the Gmail team is borrowing some ideas from the Wave team more than it does an effort to transition Gmail into being a Facebook or Twitter clone. I'm looking forward to seeing how it will work. - Mark Davidson from BuddyFeed
Most importantly, how will it work for people who don't use Gmail? Email is (more or less) zero-sum. You're not going to get people to change their email client and email address just to have access to the social features their friends might be using on Gmail. There would need to be a "Gmail+Social-Gmail" experience for people who have friends that use Gmail as a social network but who don't use Gmail themselves. - Kevin Fox
That's a pretty cool page, Jerome! I hadn't seen that one before. - Kevin Fox
Kevin have you seen Google's social graph API ( I think Jerome's link combines contacts and the social graph API.. - Chris Myles

Kurt: would you really use it as a camera? The form factor's totally wrong - LANjackal from IM
Still 1 app at a time? - ryangraves
Wrong for that purpose, I meant - LANjackal from IM
+1 Otto - I use my iPhone daily and I haven't synced it in months. It's jailbroken. I also can't stand the regular iTunes updates I keep getting - they update the program more often than I start it. - Daniel J. Pritchett
I'm pretty sure people are looking for a webcam LAN, not a DSLR - Daniel J. Pritchett
my $300 netbook w/ Kindle for PC works for me - Tim Jones
LAN -- for tele-Skype, yes. - Kurt Starnes
Please, just improve the iPhone and iTouch. The first time you drop the iPad will be the last. The mobile sites for the NYTimes are good enough for me. I don't need the Flash ads. If you're in public, you can't set it down, you can't put it in your pocket. - Bill Koslosky, MD
Yep, iPad = Giant iPhone (exactly as I wanted / predicted) - didn't get camera tho = iFail - Susan Beebe
K I'm with you guys on the webcam idea. - LANjackal from IM
Bill -- I don't have a very good record with any dropped computer, except iPhone and other cell phones, surviving drops. - Kurt Starnes
aww, TWiT lost the feed. - Vezquex
iPad = iMeh - Bill Koslosky, MD
was that Leo Laporte filming? - Vezquex
All things considered, I'm pretty underwhelmed... it's a big iPod, but not as portable. - Andrew Terry
How long until I can run Android on it? :-P - TranceMist
Can't wait to get a hold of one. Take care folks. - Kurt Starnes
Should have shocked everyone with a name nobody expected: The iNewton - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
No multitasking? Wow. How bad of a product release is this? A $500 - $830 device that's completely locked down and can't multitask or webcam? And as some people on Twitter are pointing out: iPad? Really? Were there any women in the original focus group? - LANjackal from IM
Everyone laughed at the Palm Folio. - Jon Winters
AT&T sucks ass. - Thomas Hawk from iPhone
iPad is not the netbook killer - Tim Jones
Kurt: I can only see this as a household device. If you prop this thing up with its case at a Starbucks table, looks like trouble. No video-conferencing, but prob in the next version. - Bill Koslosky, MD
I bet iPad is the netbook killer, Tim Jones. - Vezquex
"I don't see this leaving the house too often," says Leo. But he thinks it's the "ultimate airplane device." - Bill Koslosky, MD
Scoble's Nexus One ustream streaming quality is better than his iPad streaming quality right now - Tim Jones
any announcments about iPhone's moving to other carriers? - Amani from IM
Expect an iPad killer from Google within 6 months. - Jim Posner
Household users, Airplane users, student users, personal entertainment users, ebook reades, basic laptop users....that's a pretty huge market. - Leif Hansen
+1 Otto on the Memphis 3G. I get silky smooth service and I always have to remind myself about the problems in larger markets. - Daniel J. Pritchett
What does this do for the Kindle, Nook and all the other e-ink readers? I'd say they're in trouble. Except for reading a textbook, I think a device just 2x larger than the iTouch would be more convenient. - Bill Koslosky, MD
@Bill I'd agree mostly on the ebook readers. But there is something *really* nice on the eyes with e-ink that I'm hesitant to give up (and go back to zombie brain lit screens). - Leif Hansen
Leo Laporte just said that it's an incredible device when you actually get your hands on it... beautiful, light, incrediblly responsive screen... I'll wait until I get to play with one before judging on what it lacks, and whether or not that's detrimental - .LAG liked that
Apple stock went from being down to now being up $3.12. As soon as the price came out the stock turned and went up. - Thomas Hawk
iPad does not support T-Mobile's 1700 GHz 3G frequencies - TranceMist
Ummmm ok ... I can think of many incredible, beautiful devices that I have no use for. This is another one of them. The iPhone, yes. The iPad? No. Not at that price point, at least - LANjackal from IM
Thomas ...isn't a lot of the stock movement in the last couple of hours really just speculators betting on what was going to officially get announced today? - .LAG liked that
Is there a GPS? - Todd Hoff
No shit it doesn't. T-Mobile's gone all in with Android - LANjackal from IM
I didn't hear when Apple would allow people to order the iPad. Did anyone else? - Jeff P. Henderson
the specs dont list GPS capabilities. Am I wrong ? - Kashif Khan
Jeff: I think someone said 1 - 3 months earlier in the thread - LANjackal from IM
@.LAG liked that, I think the stock move has to do with the price. The market liked the $499 price more than the speculated higher $1,000 price. It was down until the price was announced then it turned up. - Thomas Hawk
Thomas... makes sense. $499 is a price that will probably move lots of units - .LAG liked that
No it won't. Ask Sony what happened with their $500 price point for the PS3. $500 is not an impulse buy. For that you have to be at $299 or below - LANjackal from IM
Giant iPod. Hopefully an OS refresh will unlock some goodness. Otherwise? This is a shiny paperweight. - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
+1 - LANjackal from IM
They've not updated the UK store yet with info about the ipad. A little let down about the lack of bluetooth connection to a dekstop/laptop mac for use as an input device. Also, not bothered about the 3G version as I'd rather buy a mifi and use that saving myself cash and letting more devices access the net on the go ;) - alphaxion
Oh. And KILLER wood paneling! - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
Next? Steve Jobs brings back the <BLINK> tag. - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
It would be cool if I could get a mifi-type device with a $15/30 per month no-contract billing option. That would make all of these devices tempting. - Daniel J. Pritchett
here in the UK 3 offer a mifi with a 1 month rolling contract, 5Gb per month limit with £40 up front for the mifi or a pay as you go mifi for £70 up front - alphaxion
That sounds sweet alpha, I think here it's like $60/mo. with a long-term contract. Let me double-check that. Edit: Looks like the minimum mifi contract is $40/mo. for 250MB and it doesn't say how long the contract lasts. - Daniel J. Pritchett once I get myself a job I'll be buying one. - alphaxion
orange - Mike Chelen
This was always Steve's/Apple's vision, 20 years on will work??? of course it will Apple have got the consumer mesmerized. - VirtualPeople
Our post-keynote discussion with Google's Don Dodge and's Elizabeth Brooks is here: - Robert Scoble
Good points over on Gizmodo as to why it is not a complete win. - Martha
is there no way of buying the low end model and adding in an sdxc card to bump it up to 64GB? Having no camera is ridiculous and as usual you are locked into the apple ecosystem. Once again you either love the way they do things or you don't. It will be a popular device, but I'm always amazed at how many people are quite happy with Apple's walled garden. This is what killed them in the... more... - Phil Ashman
There is an SD card reader peripheral included. - Vezquex
hmm... it also doesn't look like it supports multiple user profiles and it's *still* tethered to a single machine with itunes. - alphaxion
Orange. The tablet still doesn't work well as the video livestream interface between my DVCam and whatever RMTP server I need to transmit to. Seriously whatever, as far as I'm concerned. - Rich Reader
I *gulp* miss Scoble. - Kevin Fox
Robert Scoble
For instance, I search Google for sushi, find a restaurant, then click on its phone number. We aren't doing a good job of explaining this.
I do this kind of thing all the time now. I don't even think about it. But when I tell people about it, they just stare. So I don't bother anymore. - MoTO Boychick Devil

Steve Gillmor
I can smell the fresh paint in here. Looks nice. - Amyloo
if you say so - Chris Heath
That I don't understand at all - Mark
We're coming on in a minute or two. Doing sound checks now. Looks like things are going well. - Robert Scoble
Thanks, Amyloo! :) - Rob La Gesse
Keen's going to get a cup of tea. Those brits. - Cliff Gerrish
We're waiting on the British guy again. Heheh. - Robert Scoble
I think it was 1-2 people complaining. Most of us appreciate these videos... - beersage
Well it is "Real-time with the Gillmor Gang" on so It's not unreasonable to want to watch in real-time. - Mark
Gillmor Gang recording live w/ Doc Searls, Dan Farber, Sam Whitmore, Kevin Marks, Andrew Keen & Scoble - - Cliff Gerrish
Why do I see multiple FF feeds next to the video? Are they different? - Kenny
And like what Jobs said about apps before apps. "It's called 'Safari.'" - Amyloo
Good, now I don't have to watch #TWiSt. - Vezquex
hah! - Robert Scoble
Kenny - the top feed is the show, the next one down the prior show, etc. - Rob La Gesse
There's something different about being able to hold a device like you hold a book. - Cliff Gerrish
You've just added millions of dollars to the cost to developr the National Geogrpahic product though Rob and doubled its retail price - Mark
Agree, Cliff. Like in bed. Could be called "curlupwithableness." - Amyloo
what's the hash tag for this show? - Vezquex
Low cost content for iTablets will be the big story. - Cliff Gerrish
The Tablet is a real-time device. real-time web, interactions, experiences. - Rob La Gesse
raphael, we normally don't do hash tags -- feel free to make one up. - Cliff Gerrish
To add all that interactivity to one issue of the hundreds of issues of the magazine is going to cost just a fortune. - Mark
Make the interactive content a "wiki" and crowd source the content. - Rob La Gesse
raphael - i have done a twitter search using #gillmor, #gillmorgang - Chris Jackson
Rob - Thanks for the clarification - Kenny
Interactivity will come through mashing up existing streams. - Cliff Gerrish
wow - friendfeed seems really sluggish at the moment. - Chris Jackson
but hash tags are dead anyway, right? - Vezquex
Problem with the Wiki is National Geographic are not going to want potentially false tables and charts poppping up on their products - Mark
raphael, mostly they're just spam magnets. - Cliff Gerrish
The real question is how many subscription fees are consumers going to be able handle? - Cliff Gerrish
Thats what scares me about news sites charging, I visit dozens of news sites a day, imagine if they all charged? We are talking hundreds of bucks a month. - Mark
Scoble wants a laptop? - Vezquex
Everyone is talking about a OLED screen for this device. - Jim Posner
uh ok ;) - Kenny
It was a nice, cool breeze. - Vezquex
Iphone screen is simply too small to read for long periods of itme. - Mark
Apple seems to be negotiating with a wide variety of publishers. - Cliff Gerrish
that's why devices like the kindle are popular, for their convenience. they are NOT a better reading experience - Kenny
More use spaces, than cases? - Amyloo
Look at the size of it; its a freaking joke. - Mark
The multimedia content business (the old CD-ROM) has become the game business. - Cliff Gerrish
Keen's right, we haven't fully understood how to write hypertext yet. - Cliff Gerrish
yes, HTML must kill PDF once and for all. - Vezquex
it's not 'smallness' in size thats wrong with iPod screen, it's pixel count. very high pixel density wins - Kevin Marks
Keen is hyper :P - Susan Beebe
When hardware sells lots, people announce numbers of sales. When they are not good enough, they are reluctant. - Mark
Fully agree that Android and Kindle are forcing Apple to innovate - Kenny
my digital camera has a higher resolution lcd screen than my iphone. - Mark
You can put links in PDFs, and the Kindle has native support for PDFs now, doesn't it? - Amyloo
and it cost me £100. - Mark
wow, guess cameras have gotten a lot better in the last year - Vezquex
Kevin - I don't care how many pixels you squeeze onto an iPhone or any phone's screen these devices are too small for a good reading experience - Kenny
Pixels are a must for high quality video - huge use case for iTablet - Susan Beebe
Will there be yet another telecom subscription fee associated with the apple device? - Jim Posner
Another thing then which extra pixels wont help with the iphone. Bending your neck down to read the book because you hold it withotu extending your arms and tiring them. I hold books at a different angle. - Mark
There was e-readers before kindle. - Mark
The Kindle is like the original GameBoy. A mass-market classic. - Vezquex
Jim, word is that the bandwidth will be built into the download price of the products. - Cliff Gerrish
Sony had 3 or 4 models out 2 years before Amazon launched. - Mark
Mark - But those e-readers didn't make it easy to get a book - it's soo easy on a kindle - Kenny
Time Warner is promoting 4G in Hawaii. Is 4G being deployed now for the Tablet? - Arnie Klaus
You just dragged a book you bought at the Sony site onto the memory card. Its not rocket science. - Mark
a new Apple TV would be very smart right now - Susan Beebe
scoble's talk just then reminds me of what the Xerox Parc people were demoing in the 70's - a personal tag that allowed you to move from office to office and the screen that was local changed to be your desktop - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Why? because the APple TV has been super successful the first two times they tried it ? - Mark
Mark - True, but I can buy a book without having to drag anything - The kindle just made it easier and the next devices will just get better and better - kindles, tablets whatever they may be - Kenny
how about a double-hinged laptop so it's easier to hold and read? - Vezquex
How about just buying a book and reading it? I still like that. Reading books ftw. - Mark
Whatever's next from from Apple will be a descendant of the iPhone, not the laptop. - Cliff Gerrish
lol - Kenny
Wonʻt gestures on the tablet create the differentiation of what is cool and what is keyboard. - Arnie Klaus
Just seems crazy to spend a fortune on a reading device before you can read a page of a book. Just go to the damn store and buy some books and read em. - Mark
Virtualization of the keyboard is one of the problems will have to be solved. - Cliff Gerrish
Audio-Visual will carry the day...reading will be for quick snippets. Content will be multimedia - Arnie Klaus
Steve, how does Google control the music industry? - Vezquex
Gilmor can be a cranky old man sometimes :) - Kenny
cranky old man all the time ;) - Tyler Gillies
Yup. Old Git. - Mark
whats comcast? - Tyler Gillies
Buying will be a background function for the utility of our desires. - Arnie Klaus
spotify is going to piss off the american internet pipes - so much traffic now that they are being blocked like Napster was - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
i like grooveshark - Tyler Gillies
lala - Kenny
yup - lala will be used to stream your music to the tablet - Kenny
Spotify is a p2p service: not a lot of people know that - Mark
Haha, that will be interesting, bear. And doubly so, since the US generally has slower connections (especially upload) than Europe. - Vezquex
The new beta of Boxee is awesome - Kenny
Comcast and Time Warner wll buy 4g from verision and keep their subscribers - Arnie Klaus
you're forgetting the concert revenue, artist producerswill always have these revenues - Frédérick 2 Baro
When you think about it, the kindle looks like crap. - Mark
ahh the feel of media - Arnie Klaus
theres no normal people on this call - Tyler Gillies
Scoble, the Kindle's advantage is battery life. - Vezquex
Nope, we're all freaks and monsters. - Mark
Haha, "you're a geek!" - beersage
Robert is right. "Normal" people aren't doing the stuff that geeks are. - Matt M (inactive)
I practice normalcy! - Arnie Klaus
i forgot how epic friendfeed was for realtime video comentary - Tyler Gillies
haha steve said penetration - Tyler Gillies
I think microsft is rising with a lot of touchscreens and apps.. - Frédérick 2 Baro
Friendfeed is a bit slow today. The pipes are clogged. - Mark
Agree with Steve. Geek normal will be normal normal before long. - Amyloo
Who is showing that video of a table? What is that? - Matt M (inactive)
Comcast and Clear are competing in Philadephia area for 4G coverage - along with the new Sprint and soon TMobile - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
yeah geek just means normal trailblazer - Tyler Gillies
MS Surface Technology is awesome - Susan Beebe
go robert, go robert, go robert! - Tyler Gillies
I'm more impressed by the 5-screen studio. This is pretty much like any chat room. - Vezquex
Unfortunately, Steve Ballmer has lost sense of how to wow customers - Susan Beebe
I don't think there will be that much "magic" for this tablet. Not much more then we can do now - especially if the thing will cost $800 - Kenny
Robert do you think video will be on the Tablet front or back or both ? - Frédérick 2 Baro
The air was the precursor waiting for other new technologies. - Arnie Klaus
I need more toys!!! - Paul Sherer
Generation moves accross less than two generation you can have gap between two generations with 2years distance - Frédérick 2 Baro
Kevin's right. That'll keep the geeks happy to have their keyboard, but the rest will use the surface. - Ian McGee
Steve will give it to select schools to seed the rave that scoble is talking. - Arnie Klaus
Frederick; I don't know. That's why we'll have to wait until Wednesday. - Robert Scoble
Wonder how long it is before asus comes out with the poor man's version of the apple device. - Jim Posner
have you seen star wars crawl for html5? - Tyler Gillies
Asus might beat Apple to market if the tablet isn't coming out for a few months. - Vezquex
I'd care a lot more about not having Flash on a tablet than I care about not having it on a phone - Amyloo
tablet must have flash or it's an iFAIL - Susan Beebe
Flash will compile to Obj-C in the new Flash studio, so it won't matter. - Vezquex is Flash implemented in javascript + SVG - Kevin Marks
All you need is PDF -- can have links, audio, right in it. - Amyloo
it doesn't matter that Asus will beat it to market. I was selling 1/4-inch thick NEC tablets in 2002. - Robert Scoble
The other advantage of PDF, back to the magazines discussion, is that's the standand output to give to printers. - Amyloo
"A year head start." Imagine what that actually means given the speed of innovation. - Cliff Gerrish
@amyloo PDF is less than HTML - paginated, inflexible, proprietary - Kevin Marks
ASUS CEO-Shih thinks it would be premature to release a tablet today and predicts the devices will not be successful until there are easily accessible online stores of books, music, videos, games and other content tailored to the form factor. "Content is still not attractive enough today to the customer," he said. "We have those kind of devices in our labs but we are watching to see... more... - Jim Posner
sweet. apps. - Tyler Gillies
Families producing content for each other really plays to the strength of the iLife suite. - Cliff Gerrish
Kevin, agree. But I work for a magazine and we already have PDFs. It would be not very time consuming to add the interactivity. - Amyloo - Paul Sherer
Right Kevin do you think we will have video calling on it - Frédérick 2 Baro
The facial recognition stuff built in to iPhoto will probably be used to identify users - multi-user devices. Camera on the front. - Cliff Gerrish
@amyloo does your magazine not have a website? - Kevin Marks
what do you think the price point will be - Tyler Gillies
google never shares a part of his market , he will never share with amazon - Frédérick 2 Baro
This silverlight on the iphone thing is getting tired. Microsoft has an h264 streaming platform - big deal. It's not the same as shipping .NET on the phone. - Matt M (inactive)
they don't need too put silverlight on iphone, it already works very well - Frédérick 2 Baro
aaaand Gillmor plays the CoCo card. - Vezquex
fred: how? - Tyler Gillies
yup, we do, but not full articles online yet for the magazine, just for our 10 newsletters -- no true integration of print-web process (non-profit) - Amyloo
I don't watch TV either - I use ONLY demand based media products - screw old media - Susan Beebe
i don't even own a "TV" - Tyler Gillies
ok with steve the next is real time chatting plus video - Frédérick 2 Baro
Do people care about liner notes anymore? Does anyone have a close connection to their music at all? - Matt M (inactive)
people are very dedicated to music listening. - Vezquex
Have people abandoned the the lowly PC. I just bought a new PC to do HD video editing..something I will never do on all the devices discussed today. - Jim Posner
@tyler the iphone seems to work very very well without any flash or sylverlight why bother - Frédérick 2 Baro
Listening, yeah, but what about extras like liner notes? - Matt M (inactive)
jim, what kind of video do you do? - Amyloo
tap tap revenge is wicked smart use case - Susan Beebe
liner notes? haha i haven't bought a cd in years - Tyler Gillies
We need virtual goods portability! So you can buy an item and use it within multiple apps. - Vezquex
looking to do documentary video..long tail stuff..Austin specific initiially. - Jim Posner
The internet is no longer the 'content reuse' medium -- it's flipped, now it's the primary medium, every other medium is a re-release platform. - Cliff Gerrish
good point, Cliff - Vezquex
wow, good one cliff - Tyler Gillies
Steve i don't think black and white applications can succed ... - Frédérick 2 Baro
clliff - the internet is the guttenburg press :) pumping out content!! - Susan Beebe
really interesting work going on with Red Camera..I think more technically interesting than Apple..Pushing extremely expensive video tech down to individuals rather than large production companies. - Jim Posner
what is going to be the youtube for audio content or news or mixed-media? i.e. the place for everyone to post and be found that isn't controlled by the corporations. - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
There has not been a definitive documentary on SXSW. Maybe I can work with Robert on getting it done. :-) - Jim Posner
bear: why not youtube? - Tyler Gillies
Oddly, YouTube one of the best for audio. Usually the poster slaps on a static image or a short slide show for the video. Many sites offer hosting with a built-in player, including Soundcloud, The Sixty One, and Last.FM. - Vezquex pro song recorded on iPHone. - Robert Scoble was my son Andrew's recording lat night - Kevin Marks
There are supposed to be a number of iLife announcements -- those are the family/professional production tools. - Cliff Gerrish
robert: friendfeed ftw ;) - Tyler Gillies
yes, steve, it won't be wisdom of the crowd, it will be wisdom of the talented (not necessarily connected)...ask AJK - Paul Sherer
yes, steve, it won't be wisdom of the crowd, it will be wisdom of the talented (not necessarily connected)...ask AJK - Paul Sherer

Robert & Kevin - cool :) - Susan Beebe
this show is sublime geekery - Vezquex
Talent will continue to get paid. This may give them a path within the real-time Network. - Cliff Gerrish
love the discussion on ideas rather than product details. - Jim Posner
the intersection of the horizontal and the vertical will be 1) a cool mess to work in and 2) dominated by curation sites to help people navigate that mess - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
like cut-paste on iPhone - Vezquex
"Cause" based efforts will embrace mobile technologies like iTablet for sure!! - Susan Beebe
Thanks guys for another fabulous GG show :) - Susan Beebe
Great stuff everyone !! - Paul Sherer
although, not really ;) - Tyler Gillies
What's Silverlight? - Ken Sheppardson
"curation will save us all" was @hchamp's conclusion on last night - Kevin Marks
yes silverlight forget what version - Tyler Gillies
I have no idea! I'll install Silverlight if needed for this show. - Vezquex
Silverlight 3-4 (latest) - Paul Sherer
silverlight 3 on a VM'd Windows 7 install on my Mac Pro - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
No Silverlight on my mac. - Matt M (inactive)
FriendFeed has been buggy all day - Susan Beebe
Good show. Glad I had a chance to watch live. Seems to make a difference though can't think why. I think I still have Silverlight 2. - Amyloo
Yes, I have latest silverlight. - Robert Scoble
bye. excellent show today. - Vezquex
Silverlight 3.04 ver (on Win7 64bit) - Susan Beebe
That was a fun show, thanks for joining! - Robert Scoble
Thank you Robert - YOU made it fun :) - Susan Beebe
Good Show - C ya - Kenny
Not gonna install silverlight like my quixotic quest to not install air. - Paul E. Ester
Good show, production always getting better - Paul E. Ester
Great show! Silverlight 2 on my MacBookPro... updating to latest version now :) - Robert J Taylor
Enjoyed the show thanks. I was using Silverlight 3. - Hilary Talbot
What are Kindle media options beyond books? - Paul Sherer
Michael Fidler
Check out this beautiful 360 Aerial Panorama of New York. You need to have QuickTime to view it, but if you want the best quality use the plug-in on the site. It’s amazing with the plug-in loaded!
New York Aerial.jpg
I found this photo in the photostream of xmir on Flickr. - Michael Fidler
is there a link to the orig? I think the FF image is static - Keith - @tsudo
OK, it should be up! - Michael Fidler
Let me know if it works. I think the best view is from Governors Island or the from Downtown with the view pointing up. - Michael Fidler
Over-the-top amazing! - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
Awesome. Like taking the helicopter ride I've been too cheap to pay for... - Mitchell Tsai
Here's another one of London. Amazing! - Michael Fidler
Here's an amazing one. I just let it go, rather than control it; - Michael Fidler
It appears the plug-in is no longer necessary. I'm running it in Chrome without one. - Michael Fidler
That is pretty amazing. - Son of Groucho
Nice! - Kol Tregaskes
This is awesome. - Mark Krynsky
The viewer appears to be Flash not Quicktime, - Brian Sullivan
Brian, they changed it since this was first posted back in May. It used to require a VR plug-in which worked with QuickTime, but now it doesn't require anything, However, it looks just as good as before. The images are truly amazing! - Michael Fidler
New York, New York!!! - Myrna
Michael - didn't notice the post date-- "Doesn't require anything" -- Flash must be installed so something is required. The Flash viewer seems to crash a lot though (or at least in Chrome) -- still a great pano. I wonder how it was done -- from a helicopter no doubt but beyond it would be a mystery. - Brian Sullivan
I just tried it in Chrome and recommend Firefox instead. It didn't crash on me in Chrome, but it didn't run smoothly either. - Michael Fidler
Brian, I would love to know how these are made. I know some are done from a helicopter, but if you check out the one from Downtown, it's clearly stationary. I can't even see the reflection of the camera in the building windows when it's turned around 180 degrees. I've posted links to others above. I wonder if I should repost this to a room and if so which one? - Michael Fidler
Here's the link for Sydney and I'll grab a few more. - Michael Fidler
I know generally how to make these 360 panos but the only technique I know is shooting from a tripod where you have control of the leveling of the camera and control of the angle of shooting. You have to manipulate out the tripod out of the picture after shooting -- these I have no idea, is a QTVR one of my living room - Brian Sullivan
All the fisheye does is cut down on the number of shots you need to take -- if it goes 180 in both directions two shots are nominally sufficient on a full frame camera - usually 3 though but that is only if all are shot with the same horizon and with precise angular placement. How you control this in a moving helicopter is beyond me. Maybe more than one camera ? In shots like these where parallax is less of a problem maybe that is the method used - Brian Sullivan
This must be shot completely differently than a stationary panoramic. I'm familiar with the 8 shot method, but the camera needs to be on a tripod as Brian mentioned. If you watch these images load slowly, they look like plates. It sort of reminds me of photosynth, but connected somehow. Now, I really want to find out how it's done. - Michael Fidler
I think regular stationary panoramas are loaded as "plates" (at least you export them that way to edit them) as well so I am not sure that is a clue as to how they were generated. - Brian Sullivan
If I email them, do you think they'll answer? Hi, I was just curious; what’s your secret? You never know. It might be worth a try:) - Michael Fidler
Here's one of U2 (on one of their smaller tours), and I don't think they had a helicopter with them to shoot it. - Michael Fidler
That one is done from a tripod or monopod of some type it appears -- you can see if you look down the footprint has the logo on it. - Brian Sullivan
Ya, I noticed one that had the logo above it. May they use it when photoshop doesn't do the job perfectly. - Michael Fidler
Logos like that are used to hide the footprint of the tripod or other -- sometimes it can be a lot of work create a shot to cover the spot (or to fill it in using a bitmap editor) so it is just masked. - Brian Sullivan
OK, check out this one and go into planet view. It's the P next to the directional controls. I wonder if that has something to do with it. Shot off a reflective globe maybe. - Michael Fidler
Michael: So you like "Little Planets"? :) - Holger Eilhard
The "P" gets you the "polar view" -- a standard view that can be created from any 360/180 panorama so that is not a clue as to how it is done either from what I can determine ( is a flickr group dedicated to such polar views) - Brian Sullivan
I've seen them many times before and wondered how they were made, too. This guy has some examples and apparently he uses a 10.5mm lens and then maps them into shape: - Michael Fidler
STUPENDO! Io ci torno il 18 Settembre - PICCHU
Yes the 10.5 is a Nikon fisheye lens -- I use a Peleng 8mm fully manual fisheye -- more suited to my budget. When shooting with tripod you need a parallax correction jig as well -- I use the Nodal Ninja -- which is a reasonable quality low end device. - Brian Sullivan
I was on the Hugin site a few months ago and I found a video that demonstrates how to use the jig. It didn't mention helicopter shots though. In fact, the video was very particular about not having any movement. I think it's time to ask them. - Michael Fidler
Yeah I have seen a number of these panoramas that seem to defy logic. Peter Murphy (who is a pioneer in this type of stuff) has a number of puzzling ones - (needs Quick time) for example. His weblog has tons of others as well _ - Brian Sullivan
@briansullivan I went to an event last night where I came across something that might explain how these are done. If you check out the picture I shot of the equipment; it uses a reflective dome to capture the entire shot all at once and then processes it almost instantly afterwards. . It basically comes out looking like a globe or a planet before it is processed. Once processed it look like a full panoramic just like the ones here, but in lower resolution. - Michael Fidler
I haven’t seen the digital version yet, but the guy who owns this company told me they would be much sharper than the prints which they give out at the event. I also asked him about the helicopter shots, and he wasn’t sure about compensating for movement, but he didn’t see it as a big problem either. Mystery solved? - Michael Fidler
I don't see this lens/device as "the" answer. Other similar devices have a reputation for low optical quality and low resolution. Peter Murphy almost certainly does not use such a lens. No serious panorama photographer that I have heard of uses anything like this. - Brian Sullivan
I guess the search for an answer continues... - Michael Fidler
Hi - I own Pixelcase and shot the tour of Sydney aswell as all development. Glad you like my work. - pixelcase
Thank you, I'm glad you found this. I love your work. Based on the number of likes and comments for this post, I think it’s safe to say, I’m not the only one. It would be nice if you could enlighten us with some details about how these are made. - Michael Fidler
Here's a link to pixelcase's newest and IMHO best work of Melbourne - Michael Fidler
Outstanding -- still no resolution on how it is done -- but I guess there is no reason why he should spill all his trade secrets. - Brian Sullivan
Brian - No answer, and I can't blame him for wanting to keep it a secret. I guess that we have to just appreciate it for what it is. However, I'm already looking forward to whatever he does next! - Michael Fidler
Poking around in panorama forums -the consensus seems to be that the pictures for these panoramas are shot with a multi-camera set up attached to an RC helicopter. The viewer is krpano - - Brian Sullivan a helicopter like this would do the job - Brian Sullivan
John, thanks for sharing. Love it! Brian; I've always wanted a RC helicopter, but I still haven't gotten around to buying one yet. However, the picture from the one in the video is great. - Michael Fidler
FYI rosauro - the helicopter guy is also a well known VR/panorama photographer (also from Toronto where I am ) - Brian Sullivan

Malaysia - Cheong Fatt Tze "Blue" Mansion in Penang
© Lucie's Photography / posted a photo: Penang (Malay: Pulau Pinang, Chinese: 槟城/檳城, Chinese: 槟榔屿/檳榔嶼) is a state in Malaysia, located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia by the Strait of Malacca. Penang is the second smallest state in Malaysia after Perlis, and the eighth most populous. The 110 year old Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion is located in George Town, Penang. The most unique feature of this Chinese courtyard mansion is its original indigo-blue paint. It has 38 rooms, 5 granite-paved courtyards, 7 staircases & 220 vernacular timber louvre windows. It won the UNESCO's Asia-Pacific Heritage 2000 Award for Conservation. The distinctive blue colour of the mansion is the result of mixing lime with natural blue dye made from the Indigo plant. The blue was very popular in the Colonial period and the dye was imported from India. The lime wash was very effective in a tropical weather as it absorbed moisture and cooled the house. However the blue is a colour...

There was a lot of chatter about the future of FriendFeed this weekend. The short answer is that the team is working on a couple of longer-term projects that will help bring FriendFeedy goodness to the larger world. Transformation is not the end. Consider this the chrysalis stage -- if all goes well, a beautiful butterfly will emerge :)
What is transforming... FriendFeed, or the idea of FriendFeed? - Christopher Galtenberg
Thanks for the update, Paul! - Anne Bouey
THANK YOU! - tehKenny
Fabulous News :) - Susan Beebe
Noticed the "leaked" Facebook UI screenshots and the groups blog post today, and both seem FriendFeed inspired: nice to see Facebook trying to bring the stuff we like about FriendFeed to a larger audience. - Mark Trapp
To Robert Scoble: I told you so ;-) - Jesse Stay
Sounds like they're adding some of FF's features to FaceBook. yay - iTad from fftogo
Mark - got link? - Susan Beebe
Thanks Paul :) - Ashish
Devil is in the details: "couple of longer-term projects that will help bring FriendFeedy goodness to the larger world" == Facebook projects with FriendFeed-like elements == no work on FriendFeed itself. - EricaJoy
Paul, FriendFeed rocks as Gmail does ;) - Orlando Pozo
Thanks for the update, the more you communicate, the less we have to speculate. - Peter Hoffmann
The fact that these improvements are coming to Facebook and not friendfeed will not sway those who like friendfeed but dislike Facebook. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thank you Paul for bringing "FriendFeed goodness to the larger world" -- THAT sounds awesome!! - Susan Beebe
I hope out of the chrysalis emerges an infested Kerrigan. That'd be awesome - Ivan Kirigin
Thanks Mark, much appreciated... I'll check those out - Susan Beebe
+1 Ivan :) - Benjamin Golub
But we knew this was the deal the moment the full details of the purchase of friendfeed by Facebook became public. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Yeah, I don't give a crap about Facebook. I want to know about FriendFeed. - Rochelle
sadly, no one with any power seems to care about FF anymore. - Big Joe Silenced
And there's your answer, Rochelle. friendwho? friendwhat now? Oh, you mean Facebook! (No I mean friendfeed) friendwho? (rinse, lather, repeat) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
there are some ui differences (and i tend to prefer friendfeed in those cases) but i have friended quite a few FF people in FB and the experience is remarkably similar in many ways. - Jason Wehmhoener
Thanks for the transparency on the Friendfeed "ghost town" matter Paul. Much appreciated. - Alex Knight
Thanks Paul... bring the special sauce to Facebook: - Andrew
I like the "chrysalis stage" analogy - sounds cool.... goes an looks for FF goodness butterfly! - Susan Beebe
Good to know that FriendFeed still has some fight left; hope that translates into a viable and sustainable platform/utility for the masses (though I quite enjoy the close-knit, uber-geek community that it's become). - Christian
I don't like the chrysalis analogy. The butterfly emerges from the chrysalis and buggers off leaving the shell. Of course, it might then also get eaten by a bird. Tweet, tweet. - Mark H
Mark LOL nice, ... haha - Susan Beebe
Note that he didn't say that was going away, only that they're diverted to bringing it to a much larger audience - Jesse Stay
The problem is Scoble (Robert) and MG both just sent half of FriendFeed away so most of those that would benefit from this announcement won't even see it. - Jesse Stay
Jesse, I didn't get that from Paul's comment. I read that some of the friendfeed ideas will be going into FB. I like that idea, but I still prefer FF to FB because of the different conversations here that I don't have with friends and family. - travispuk from iPhone
Yeah, Paul's statement won't help friendfeed. This will just either give people more reason to go to Facebook or find another service entirely. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
What Alex and Rochelle said. This sounds like a "we're bringing FF to Facebook" announcement, and I don't give a damn about Facebook. I want to know what's happening HERE. And Cristo, both, but more the interface. I care about the friends I've made here, and I'm connected with many of them now on Facebook as well, but I prefer to interact with them here, because I like it better. - Jandy
Travis, he didn't say that - you read that, but he didn't say that. I'm willing to bet will not go away. - Jesse Stay
As much as I agree about Scoble and MG driving people away, they have also effectively flush out some comment from the FF team. - travispuk from iPhone
Travis, there are better ways of getting the FF team to comment - Jesse Stay
:( I quite liked the caterpillar. - Nick Lothian
Oh I don't think FF will go away, and damn will hope it doesn't either! - travispuk from iPhone
What I do see is more Facebook integrated into the FriendFeed environment - I think that's a good thing - Jesse Stay
The critical difference between Facebook and FriendFeed is the social model. With Facebook as it is today, you need to be mutual friends to see each others content. There is a "fan page" model but it is oriented toward "publishing/celebrity" rather than information sharing. FriendFeed has an asymmetric model like Twitter, where you can easily discover someone's content without any "friend" gesture whatsoever, and you can follow without friending. This makes the converation more discoverable, and useful.. - Adina Levin
Agree Adina. - travispuk from iPhone
If the integration is bringing public/asymmetric to Facebook, then it will be very useful indeed. If the integration is to add FriendFeed-style service integration into the symmetric/private Facebook model, it will be much less useful - it's more of the same - I'll be able to more easily share updates from youtube or or delicious to my friend network, but be unable to discover new people and infomation. - Adina Levin
@Jesse - I can't see any sign that they are working on FriendFeed at all. All the indications are that the FF team is now working on Facebook, and only Facebook. That's great for Facebook, and I'm sure they will do wonderful work there. But don't delude yourself that FriendFeed is going to get anything more than critical fixes, and maybe the occasional thing done in someone's spare time. - Nick Lothian
Butterflies look totally different than caterpillars and they also fly away - Melanie Reed
Crickets chirping... is this site alive?? :) - Christopher Galtenberg
+100 Adina. The things I like best about FriendFeed (easy content/people discovery, FoaF, asymmetrical following and being followed) are completely opposite to Facebook's core model. That's why as much as people keep talking about Facebook adding FF-like features, I don't see the REAL FF core features making it over, because the mindset is different. - Jandy
I don't see this announcement as anything new, or as reassuring. We knew from the time of the acquisition that there would be would be some movement of FF capabilities into FB. The real question is whether this means absorption of FF into FB or attracting the FB user base into FF. The comment about "bring[ing] FriendFeedy goodness to the larger world" still leaves that question open. - John (bird whisperer)
+1 everything Alex Scoble has said. Friendwhat? What's a feed? Who uses RSS anymore? We've got PubSubWTFOMGBBQ now! - Mr. Gunn
Agree with Jandy on +100 Adina. - Amy℠
Also, I agree with Jandy and Adina's comments. - John (bird whisperer)
Nick, Paul just said they're working on other projects right now. That still doesn't mean FriendFeed is going away. I'm not deluding myself at all. I'm telling everyone else they're deluding themselves by assuming it's going away. All the FriendFeed team is still using FriendFeed, and Paul just tried to give us comfort not to worry. For some reason we all don't want to believe him. It's actually kind of amusing. - Jesse Stay
I wonder what the powers that be mean by "FriendFeedy goodness"? Is it understood what WE like about it vs. FB? - Amy℠
Paul - Wishing you all the best as you tend your new butterfly garden :) I'll be here to enjoy them! - Susan Beebe
This is not the news that Friendfeed fans were looking for. - Vezquex
The issue isn't belief that they are going to do something. The question is what they are going to do, and whether that will continue the core value of FriendFeed, which is not just information aggregation but discoverability. - Adina Levin
I know more about the "Last Days" and heaven than I know about what's going to happen to FriendFeed as we have come to know it than was given in your rather cryptic answer, Paul. :) And while that may not be a fair comparison (God actually gave details and signs), there is something definitely not forthcoming about your response. A person usually withholds details that affect another... more... - Melanie Reed
Hopefully this helps to quiet all of the "friendfeed is dying" talk. Because this thread proves ff is alive and well. - Garin Kilpatrick
@Jesse - I read it differently to you. To me, Paul is saying "We are taking what we were working towards on FriendFeed, and trying to bring that goodness to a bigger audience". No one is claiming they are going to shut down FF. - Nick Lothian
@Jesse - Want to make a bet on the number of new features added to FF before the end of the year? - Nick Lothian
You read my mind. Having seen a few acquisitions, I am wondering if FF staff was told to put the site in bugfix mode. - EricaJoy from IM
Cristo, to deliver some straightforward talk is not about giving away company details. If you have a product that is original and stands on its own, you don't need to refer to it as a "butterfly". Many companies even promote something new and upcoming especially to their loyal user base. It gives a signal. A proper one. It tells your users and future users enough so that they can make an informed decision about what they want to do instead of keeping them on tenderhooks - Melanie Reed
"the chrysalis stage in most butterflies is one in which there is little movement" (via wikipedia) So if you follow that metaphor then eventually FriendFeed will go through a metamorphosis -- that means it's not dead... really how hard can it be to get what he's saying? - Chris Heath
Its pretty hard :) The burning question is if they are putting FF goodness in to the walled gardens that are Facebook or are they bringing FF openness to FB too. I think the people here want the open forums that are FF not the closed ones that are FB. If FB is going hybrid with both walled gardens and open forums that would be OK too. People on FF want open forums... like Twitter and FF... without the crude interface that is Twitter and without the uncertainty that is FF now. - Ed Millard
Facebook is gonna have to rip off much of the privacy to maximize their product in the real-time web world. I am going to assume FF goodness is going to be applied to FB :) *crosses fingers* - Susan Beebe
Just a thought... why does "longer-term projects that will help bring FriendFeedy goodness to the larger world" JUST mean What I get from this is that they are working on a range of things, maybe bringing the FriendFeed sauce to a range of sites, powered by the Facebook back end. Who knows what that means. A FriendFeed service powered by FacebookConnect? Also to...... more... - Johnny
LMFAO. Johnny++ - Rahsheen
FB needs to leave the privacy for the walled garden and the inner circle. Their current user base likes that. They just need a second feed that is an open forum and you can talk there without it bleeding in to your inner circle feed. - Ed Millard
Yes, but blocking doesn't work so well since you can just use Chrome's Incognito mode to get around it. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Translation: if you haven't switche to Facebook yet, you better do it now so you can get a good vanity URL. - David Chartier from iPhone
I don't know what all the fuss is about. But could we have the long answer too, please? - Laura Norvig
Although I'm interested, FB != FF. I don't see how the two mix in a way that makes me feel otherwise. Mixing audiences is not a good thing for me (with a few exceptions) and I know others share the same thought. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Paul, will FF be here in 1 year, 5 years? - Robert Higgins
Thanks for the update Paul.. - Chris Myles
Cristo I am funking nobody, I would like Paul to quantify his post. Simple. Will FF be here in 1 year? Will FF be here in 5 years? - Robert Higgins
IMO friendfeed shoud attract more general audience... Facebook and twitter are having more general users. Most of the FF users are tech bloggers or those who needs aggregation services... I dont know it's just my feeling or not . but this is my impression on FF. but it's great service.. the features are too good... but we will roam were we meet our friends... thats most of the people are into twitter and FB. - Sarath
Ohhhh a perrrttty butterfly, I'm moist with anticipation. - sofarsoShawn
Glad to hear it, Paul. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Cristo: i almost made the same observation an hour or two ago when i first read through this posting and its comments. I was skimming and kept seeing alex, alex, alex... and thinking to myself... where's Robert!?! - Chris Heath
Great news. Thanks! friendfeed team. :D - Franc, a rememberer
@Sarath - I have a lot more in common with the people I've met here on FriendFeed than FB or Twitter. Twitter is too hard to search, and FB (and Twitter to a good extent) is driven by the people you know in RL (and unfortunately I don't have nearly as much in common in RL with my family, co-workers and acquaintences as I do with people scattered all over the world who I have met on FF).... more... - Lindsay
I think that in his cryptic statement he means, and a lot of people here agree with me, that more Facebook's going to get more FriendFeedy. Which doesn't mean that FF still isn't dead or doomed. After all, he works for Facebook now. FriendFeed=open forum, Facebook=walled garden, totally opposite master metaphors; but I don't think Zuckerberg gets it, and FF belongs to Zuckerberg now. So this is really about FB; FF's still in limbo. Still, some FF people friended me at FB, and I put them in a special list. - Dennis Jernberg
@FF-team keep on rocking :). BTW I also think it's really cool you guys open-sourced tornado. - alfred westerveld
+1 what alfred said, and good to hear words like "longer-term" & "beautiful" coming straight from The Walrus - keep that vision strong. Hope all goes well for FF team doing some good re-inventing the Octopus Garden of FB - seems you've got your work cut out for you there! It would be so nice if any way to keep a "simple & pure" form of FriendFeed alive (maintained and developed - more open source?) for us to enjoy, but no worries .... you've simultaneously raised the bar and paved the way for the rest! - Dan Freeman
Good luck with the development Paul! Hopefully Zuck has some positive insight. - Garin Kilpatrick
I like butterflies. - Harold Cabezas
Paul: If someone offered me a bag of money to do what you guys did, I would have done exactly the same (probably a lot faster too). However, it would be nice if you spent an hour answering some of the questions here. It might also give people like me a little more faith, in what used to be your primary project; Friendfeed. You made the best platform on the planet - why not use it to let us know what the heck's going on? - Jim Connolly
I'm assuming that Facebook wants to keep their roadmap quiet. I respect that but leaving you community in the dark for a brand that the applications stand for community building is rather ironic. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
SUPER!! I don't Blame ya 1 Darn bit fer Dumpin' FacePOOP Paul!! ;PPP Wait FacePOOP is the Maggot Stage!! ;)) - Billy Warhol
If I can still have all my friends that I have here on friendfeed and share things with them the exact same way, I don't care what "www" address I have to type in to get it. I just hope i don't have to give up any of FF's awesome features! Thanks for the update Paul! - David Cook
The problem is I don't know whether to wrote an app on your API or not because i'm not sure whether it will all be dropped in the "transformation". Imagine speding late nights and weekends coding something up only for it to be dropped suddenly. Need a decent long term picture. Looking at Cliqset. - Steven Livingstone-Pérez
Good point Steven - and one of the reasons many of us are spending so little time developing our networks here. - Jim Connolly

I do care about what happens next, but this is the best news of the day nonetheless ! thanks for giving us updates at last ! and I do hope FF will awaken again ! such a great tool, but letdown since the announcement of the buyback by FB - laetSgo
will I see this post in my "best of week" email from FF? - Kirill Bolgarov
If Facebook is going to get fixed, please remember that it needs fixing politically, not just technically. It needs to give people the option to open their data to Google - for instance. A walled garden where the walls are fixed in place sucks. - Tim Tyler
