Ludwig: I'm meeting Andy after the show. He's very happy with the signups he got. Now he has to ship! - Robert Scoble
Looks like Chromebooks at 10% share now. Nice of Microsoft to promote them in Scroogle ads and diss the cloud at the same time! - Ian Waring
I'm waiting for my beta invitation... We are starting with contextual ads now. Works really well for the advertiser. They book display ads and the customer gets a geo fence notification for discounts. - Ludwig Ederle

Move away from silos to loosely connected web - Ian Waring
Networking isn't strong on FB, but is on LinkedIn - christina sponselli
LinkedIn becoming an amateur HuffPro - Ian Waring
LinkedIn is diluting its graph by being spammy - Kevin Marks
LinkedIn not communicating changes in your network - mixed in with superfluous filler - Ian Waring
Linked so spammy its opening the opportunity for a someone new - clive boulton
Google retiring Latitude left a gap for an Android "Find your friends" - Ian Waring
Agree with LI being spammy, but it is still the site where ppl look up other ppl they don't know. - christina sponselli
Yes, but useless for job hunting now. - Ian Waring
Recruiting industry too focussed on keyword matching, no salary/level relevance - Ian Waring
Silo! - Ian Waring
It is part of a job hunting strategy. Definitely not the only site. - christina sponselli
Agree LI is where ppl look up other ppl for professional reasons - clive boulton
Can't think of any others outside of GitHub for devs - Ian Waring
Merry Christmas everyone from Los Angeles... awaiting another flight :) - Charlie Isaacs
Its just LI + Huffpo mix is too spammy. - clive boulton

The audio is very clear today, especially on Steve's mic... - Charlie Isaacs
UK govt filter at Sky knocks out Bitcoin laden sites! And too! - Ian Waring
Audio is so clear I thought I heard some Santa juice jingling in the background. - Alex de Soto
The risk of Kickstarter/Crowdfunding is the deliver expectations which may cause may to stop future funding of projects. It not much different than eBay, many stop using the platform or become much more cautious once you have a bad experience or two. The quality is not in the hands of the platform which is the risk. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
haha +Alex :) - Charlie Isaacs
Just an additional thought, maybe the same experience has happened with VCs and software investments. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
so small again wins - Tina Chase Gillmor
Linux Server with 30GB Flash drive and 3TB/month bandwidth costing me $10/month - Ian Waring
Seattle starting to go through the Dave McClure phase, with Angels backing incubator stage, established VC's backing fewer deals like bankers. - clive boulton
Remember "Back in the day" you also had to support 3 different platforms, IBM, Solaris, Microsoft and maybe even HP's old OS. Now you have to support the smartphone platforms. - Charlie Isaacs
Plus Linux server side, with either LAMP or Node.js based stack - Ian Waring
I think it's going to start being about "Dream Teams". We are a bunch of highly sought folks who work well together. fund US and we will come up with something great... that type of thing - Tina Chase Gillmor
I can't hear anymore. - Robert Scoble
Weird. - Robert Scoble
Now I can hear again. - Robert Scoble
Keith... your camera is glitching out occasionally going to black - Tina Chase Gillmor
I remember that model from before, where a friend of mine described her start-up as "In the pre-idea phase" - Kevin Marks
Robert hang on - Tina Chase Gillmor
Robert. now? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yeah, it works. - Robert Scoble
kevin's telling a tall tale - Charlie Isaacs
a cat tail? - Charlie Isaacs
I think my cat wants feeding - Kevin Marks
one of our studio cats is trying to tunnel her way back in - Tina Chase Gillmor - 80 percent of exits were enterprise in 2013. Huge valuations. We'll see very interesting startups by the end of 2014. - John Taschek
tina - not sure I can fix it without a reboot - Keith Teare
it's ok Keith. I'll work around it best I can - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have a frozen Kevin and Cat tail on my feed - Ian Waring
Now gone black - Ian Waring
Eric Ries had gathered startup attention but seems to have jumped the shark. - clive boulton
btw.... saw the Secret Life of Walter Mitty. liked it a lot - Tina Chase Gillmor
Clive - Agree. Lean startup stillmakes sense, but it isn't cheap any morew due to need to do cloud and 2 clients - Keith Teare
Read Eric Ries book series from O'Reilly. Own startup is lean :-) but needs to pivot again - Ian Waring
oh yeah, nothing says Christmas like bingeing on Game of Thrones where someone gets their heads cut off every two minutes - Tina Chase Gillmor
I can walk into the Google Campus here and hire iOS or Android devs by the day - Ian Waring
"Science Fiction - Double Feature see Steve Gillmor, build a creature" - Kevin Marks
Keith -- good point. Cloud and 2 clients not cheap. - clive boulton
Around $500/day - Ian Waring
The transition is called the "Internet of Things" - Nir Ben Yona
Google may reopen the lean startup window with Chrome web components. Angular. Dart. Polymer. - clive boulton
Ian, that's nothing, I can walk into the Google Campus here and get free sushi - Charlie Isaacs
Google looking for Chrome apps distribution channels atm - Ian Waring
Ian - true dat - clive boulton
no transmitting with the droids - Ludwig Ederle
Browser based apps with headless Chrome, effectively save to Homescreen on mobile but works on Android, ChromeOS, OS/X, even Windows clients - Ian Waring
Hazard a guess, Google pivots Android 5.0 to Dart - clive boulton
my clients look for iOS users, not droids. Especially now with the bluetooth le capabilities - Ludwig Ederle
Dart is one group at google, not strategic - Kevin Marks
Is the answer to this re ibeacons incorrect? - John Taschek
it's interesting that Android picked NFC, and Apple said "we're not supporting it." Apple comes up with iBeacon, and now Android will scramble to support it. - Charlie Isaacs
Phone is a stupid name for it now. Can we please rename "the phone"? - Tina Chase Gillmor
NFC largely banking industry relic - Ian Waring
Bluetooth LE isn't really "apple came up with" - Kevin Marks
our research shows, that bluetooth le is much easier to use in the free wild. NFC is very good for pairing stuff like your mobile with a speaker e.g. - Ludwig Ederle
Kevin -- Dart is well staffed (for not strategic)? - clive boulton
Intersection of phone as identity and anonymity is going to be interesting... - Ian McGee
JavaScript, HTML and CSS the main Dev stack - with API calls. Voice enabling Android app is 14 lines of JS code now - Ian Waring
sadly Tina, we're stuck with it unless we want to use "device" - Kevin Marks
It's not about the Bluetooth LE Kevin, it's about the software stack on top of it. That's what Apple came up with. The hardware doesn't matter. - Charlie Isaacs
Nebraska mall uses ibeacon - salesforce is mentioned at the bottom. - - John Taschek
So I need to buy an iDevice again to play with this iBeacon stuff, huh? - Kevin Marks
I'm getting an iBeacon device next week. - Nir Ben Yona
Kevin: yes. At least for now. - Robert Scoble
I'm Nexus 5 only now :-} - Ian Waring
What are you getting, Nir? - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't have a current iOS device - Kevin Marks
does the Touch do iBeacon - Kevin Marks
I'm not sure I want a chinese mobile, I am fine with the NSA mobile - Ludwig Ederle
Kevin: I don't know. I assume you need a phone. Does Touch have Bluetooth? If it does, maybe. We could test that out with an Estimote. - Robert Scoble
Ludwig ha - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Tina - I'm getting this one It has some really cool features, as well as the iBeacon capabilities. - Nir Ben Yona
Web stack shifting to distributed systems and message passing, rather than sequential processing (Dart and Akka) - clive boulton
Ludwig: well, most of our devices are made in China anyway. - Robert Scoble
well, true. got me - Ludwig Ederle
Ludwig: and watch for Mi to come out with devices that are very low cost and high quality. - Robert Scoble
designed in nsa, assembled in china or whatever it reads - Ludwig Ederle
-n +u - Ludwig Ederle
There's an article out today on the China smartphone market (read later) :) - Charlie Isaacs
touch has bluetooth 4 - Kevin Marks
what chinese designed technology has high quality? - Ludwig Ederle
@Steve: ha ha ha. - J.C. Bouvier
Increasing need for data a security and not only online. Cough <Target> cough. - christina sponselli

Hugo Barra showed the phones. Interesting development there - Ludwig Ederle
Camlistore kicks off personal cloud in 2014? - clive boulton
Robert called Hugo the CEO. Think he's Svp International. - Ian Waring
How easily can users take their Facebook contacts and data to another platform? - Alex de Soto
Largely impossible - Ian Waring
can you get the Mi-phones in the U.S. of NSA? - Ludwig Ederle
Ian: you are right. Sorry about that. - Robert Scoble
Ludwig: not directly. Hugo told me he is seeing increasing numbers of people buying their phones in USA but they aren't going after that market short term. - Robert Scoble
They look like Nokias running android. In Europe nobody ever heard of Xiaomi except the people that went to LeWeb :-) - Ludwig Ederle
Fezbooks your personal CRM, slow growth like ERP, everybody who wants it haz it. - clive boulton
Myspace once was that though. Maybe your whole family wasn't there but many of your friends were. Something will be a threat to FB if the competitor can market it to your close circles of trust somehow. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Btw, I said last week the market for watches was 1.2bn units. Actually $1.2Bn per year, 80% of the value over $500 devices. My bad, sorry. - Ian Waring
and your thumb cut off - Kevin Marks
I can't stop looking at the "Activity" stream in my Tweetdeck created by those I follow...a wealth of information. - J.C. Bouvier
Celebrity accounts are pretty much void on Twitter. - Nir Ben Yona
Discover tab for me is #mileyvirus - Kevin Marks
OMG JT has Bieber Fieber - Charlie Isaacs
Manielse - "market it to your close circles of trust somehow" - like - clive boulton
How do you guys stay on top of your twitter feed to filter out the important stuff? Lists? Prismatic? - Ludwig Ederle
@Ludwig, I use tweetdeck...and they have a fairly robust filtering system for feeds in columns. - J.C. Bouvier
I also use Tweetdeck. And Radian6 :) - Charlie Isaacs
My Twitter feed full of Social Media folks, keep on getting suggestions for more crap sources daily... - Ian Waring
I love twitter (@bluebrain) but find it difficult to filter out the noise. Gets better though at least feels lile - Ludwig Ederle
@Ludwig, here's a screengrab of my Tweetdeck set up for "iOS 7": - J.C. Bouvier
can't we just put all the good shit together - Tina Chase Gillmor
That's what Google Play News is trying to do Tina! - John Taschek
I love it when Tina talks dirty - Charlie Isaacs
Google needs to "auto" cool it a bit. They created an "Auto Awesome" summary of my photos and videos for the year and mixed the good and the bad for me, making huge assumptions. While well-intended, not at all awesome. - Alex de Soto
Pictures of dead people with captions. - Ian McGee
the dead people go on the Facebook Memorial Pages - Charlie Isaacs
Charlie ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
My Auto Awesome 2013 spot on - clive boulton
That's the game changer this year: keeping on all the tech on 10000 ft...: - Ludwig Ederle
I finally turned off Buzzfeed & Upworthy. headlines not worth a click - Ian McGee
Twitter is Mad Men. Apple is Game Of Thrones. Google is Homeland & Facebook is Breaking Bad! - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Good for you Clive! Guess I need to edit my photo library. - Alex de Soto
Gotta go now - bedtime in Europe. Thanks for a great show as always, have a Happy 2014. Au Revoir! - Ian Waring

And Plista. Brings us 10 times more traffic on certain sites - Ludwig Ederle
Alex -- i'd love to see Google's auto autosome algorithm - clive boulton
+Charlie I agree it's an age/experience thing - after a while you know what it's going to be. - Ian McGee
Tina, last seen poking +Robert with a stick - Charlie Isaacs
Clive: Hope the algorithm isn't as creepy as I suspect it to be. - Alex de Soto
Alex -- hmmm, any good, it really has to be pretty creepy. - clive boulton
Heheh. Tina: really? I see TONS of posts about how cool it is. But it is in a waiting state right now. It's hard to get excited by it because it hasn't shipped. Next year. - Robert Scoble
Tina: I did not wear Glass to our Open House Xmas Eve but people insisted I go get it and put it on. Everyone wanted to try it and buy one until they heard the price. - Alex de Soto
We'll have people on the plane shouting in their phones like we're used to riding any other public transportation - Ludwig Ederle
Right you are Clive! - Alex de Soto

Happy New Year all Gillmor Gang participants - clive boulton
My comment is directed at Aereo. Which is to say that anyone who wants to use copyrighted content needs to PAY. But that won't stop the disruption by people to people creation and consumption. AND vertical integration of streaming companies paying for original content. Thus my comments last week about Apple's purchase of Beats. - Ann Greenberg
