What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay
@Cee Bee I think you meant 0.62 - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
1.27 (902/705) - Leandro Ardissone ⍨
yes, thanks for the correction. lindsay, you're making me feel bad. lol - Cee Bee
0.8576, I only like mostly when I'm going to comment - Molly Song ;)
1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah
CSV_A: 1.05,0.75,1.44,0.81,3.74,0.79,0.77,0.67,0.77,0.76,1.39,1.8,1.61,1.12,0.141,5.08,2.41,0.66,.39,0.62,.62,1.27,0.8576,1.551,0.69 - Micah
1.83 - Grant Bierman
I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah
.37 1002/2708 - Michael Fidler
this is what scobes walls would like if he didnt have FF - sean percival
I haven't seen Marc Canter's fabled fence (just heard about it), but I imagine this but on wood pickets :) - Micah
This week: 2.48 (1162:467) but this is not the norm, my likes usually match or are higher than comments, overall: 0.95 (14228:14846). - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Michael, Kol! I'll recalculate average/median when we build up some more data points here. - Micah
1.03 748/723 - Keith - @tsudo
.68 6986/10194 Someone wrote a great article on the comment-like ratio a few months ago. Search on FriendFeed is crashing on me... I'll try to get the link. - Mitchell Tsai
Thanks Mitchell (btw, search crashing on me too - lots) - Micah

*bump* - Micah
Thanks, Mark! - Micah

Thanks, Rachel! - Micah
3.46 (3665/1057) before this comment and like. - Kevin Fox

Thanks for joining in, Bryce. - Micah
.15 all time, .13 this week. - Alix May
Thank you, Alix and David! (and Alix, you're tied with Siavash for the Highest Like ratio. Wow). - Micah
2.94 - j1m
Thank you, j1m. Ok, I'm gonna roll this up into a csv and call it a night. - Micah
CSV_B: 0.95,0.7,3.46,3.98,1.02,0.15,0.34,0.52,1.31,0.56,0.16,1.39,4.62,2.63,0.15,0.52,2.94 - Micah
this week = 0.45%, alltime = 6.43% - chaz2b
CSV_B Mean: 1.49 (previous mean for CVS_A: 1.27) - Micah
Of course the numbers can easily lie, but I'm gonna say it anyway: "We're getting more conversational, people!" - Micah
0.49 (493/988) - Bluesun 2600
816 / 2502 = 0.326139089 overall | 50 / 233 = 0.214592275 this week I like much more than I comment. (maths via google) - Chris Loft
3026/5013 = 0.6036 - Roger Chen
chaz2b, Bluesun 2600, Roger, Nicholas — thank you! - Micah
5.25 but I don't know what this *means, yet. maybe I'm just stingy with my "likes" compared to others? - Marg Uerite
Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler
2.94 1040/354 I have likes set to post to twitter automatically, so I'm careful with them. :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)

Thank you, amin/gnu - Micah
1.45 (4374/3026) - Micah
0.92 now. I think the movie reviews have been getting me closer to a 1 to 1 ratio. - Steven Perez
Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun
0.46 (1698/3638) - Glenn Slaven
Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah
1.31 (4,471/3,401) - Karoli
Thanks, Karoli. And the both of us have a _very_ similar ratio and absolute numbers. wow. - Micah
Thanks, Ryo! - Micah
Andy, scroll upward and you'll see a couple calculations from before (January: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81) - Micah
In March the Mean was: 1.49 - Micah
1.021276595744680851063829787234042553191489361702127659... via Wolfram Alpha - tom murphy
Thanks, tom. And though a bit verbose, your friend Wolfram is resourceful :D - Micah
0.55 (254/444) - Willem (@wim66) ☠
Thank you, Willem. - Micah
In April you were 0.97, so you're liking more / commenting less. - Micah
1.88 (779/414) - Ton Zijp
Thanks, Ton. - Micah
0.43 (3597/8305). - Parth Awasthi
0.74 (1970/2667) - Kristin of Two Everything
And thank you Parth, Scott. - Micah
Parth, compared to your April numbers, you've been consistent. - Micah
Thanks, Rick! - Micah
.54 (4148/7674) Updated! - Michael Fidler
Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah
Thanks, Michael. Yes, you have a rising tide of comment percentage (oh, wow, you were one of the originals from January - cool!) - Micah
1.82 from 798 comments / 438 likes - David Damore
Thanks, nivé and David! - Micah
2027/1594 = 1.27 - Brome

2.9 (3,242/1,116) mhhh.. time to straighten my use of FF a bit.. thanks for this entry - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Brome, Marc and Thierry - thank you! - Micah
Thierry - yeah, 2.9 is fairly high - got to pick the pace on like side :) [but hey, whatever works for you is fine] - Micah
1.91 - MiniMage
Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler
1.76 (7539/4290) My commenting habits haven't chanced much, but it felt like I clicked Like a lot less, and this ratio confirms that for me. - Micah
It's that time again. - Micah
Thanks, Laura! (you're a 50-caliber gal!) - Micah
0.64 - Imabug
Thank you, Imabug. - Micah

Thanks Imabug, directeur, Steven, RAPatton, Jim, Brent and metalerik! - Micah
0.78 - Pete D
.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - NOT THE CRICKET
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee
.31. I have almost 4 times as many likes as comments. - edythe
Thank you edythe and Eric! - Micah
195/245 makes 0.8 rounded not including this one which would be 196/245 making 0.8 unrounded, - tom murphy
Thanks, Tom. - Micah
1.98 (588/297) - Bryan Zirkel
1.67 (19,550/11,684) - Mitchell Tsai
Bryan, Mitchell and Jeff P. - thanks, guys! - Micah
1.18 - it's always been close to 1, since day one, for some reason. - Laura Norvig
Wow, Penguin is a prolific liker! - Laura Norvig
2.67 (875/328) - Nathalie
Thank you, Nathalie! - Micah
Thanks, Spidra and Mark! - Micah
0.49 - Jammy Lee
Jammy and Mathew, thank you very much. - Micah
I don't know I just like that picture - Brian Hendrickson
.40 - Ben Hanten
Mine was exactly 2:1 about a week ago. Did a screenshot when I had 2,000 comments and 1,000 likes. - Joe from iPod
SuezanneC, Brian, B E N and Joe - thank you all very much! - Micah
Joe, it's like see the odometer click through a nice round number - it's just inexplicably engaging. :) - Micah
1.40, nearly the square root of two. - Vezquex
Thanks, Raphael and Andy! - Micah
12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah
When I first saw this: 1.91 Sept 28: 1.94 - MiniMage
536 comments in the last month has me at .8736...still creeping toward 1.00 - Bren
Thanks, MiniMage (2x participant!), Bren (3x!) and Shannon (your inaugural visit!) - Micah
Thank you, SustainedEuphoria. - Micah
Thanks, Mark. - Micah
1.45 - Brett Kelly
Thanks, Brett :) - Micah
5.67 all time. Second highest ratio on here. Woot! I love to talk. - Kevin L
Thank you both, Kevin and mridul (the two of you balance it each well :) - Micah
1.80 (10,189 / 5,666) [compared to Likes, my Comments still continue to rise] - Micah
1.02 (10323/10161) - Bren
.5666 currently (30,084/53,093) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah
1.19 - Joe Bonner
Micah this is like 11 months ago, I see you have almost doubled your rate. lets make a graph for everybody now, :) - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL
Quick, someone write a greasemonkey script to inline some google charts! (tap-tap-tap...wut? don't look at me ;) - Micah

Thanks, Morton. BTW, when you posted in February, it was exactly 0.13 also. - Micah
Jenny, resistance is futile; embrace the rising tide of comments. - Micah

In Southern Morocco, goats climbing the Argan trees in search of food is a common sight. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Eivind
Nice one :) - Mary
It still looks completely wrong to me, but I have been there and seen it with my own eyes so I know it's true :) - Eivind
I wish I was there too :) and thanks for sharing it. - Mary
It's a wonderful world! - Franc, a rememberer
What balance, here we only have goats on roofs http://www.oldcountrymarket.com/goats... - Janice
Hehe, the goat info on that page seems _slightly_ exaggerated :D - Eivind
It's raining goats: http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Eivind
I would occasionally see goats in Acacia trees in Mexico. Always a spectacle. :-) - Jenny
oh.... the tree goat - گل
*bump* I love climbing goats :) - Eivind
this is one of the most bizarre things i've ever seen - نیکی
Silly goats. - SAM
They're not silly. They just go after the food, and they don't have the patience to stand around waiting to evolve long necks :) - Eivind
*bump for SAM* I couldn't help overhearing you were getting some goats. Please get some Argan trees as well :) - Eivind
:-) - Maitani
It's my considered opinion that they're nestin. http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Ken Morley
LOL - Eivind
I want a goat tree! Where do I get one? ;) - Kristin
I saw lots of them in Morocco. It's a very strange sight :) - Eivind
Have you seen lions that climb trees? - سيما كيا Sima kia
No, nay, never! They've started doing that now? - Eivind
They are called climbing tree lions http://paulgross.com/tanzani...; http://www.youtube.com/watch... I saw them in Amboseli, Kenya. I was in Serengeti too, but never saw a lion climbing tree there, the 2nd video shows some lion cubs trying to climb a tree in Serengeti. - سيما كيا Sima kia
Thanks, Sima. Now I've seen lions climb trees :) - Eivind
Onları Essaouira, Fas yakın gördüm. - Eivind
Are there any other grazers that behave like this? Or just goats? But then again, goats are incredibly agile, since there are some that live on cliff edges, which is amazing when you think about it, so not surprising they can climb trees. - Halil
I haven't come across any. I hope so, though :) - Eivind
I wouldn't look for shade under any of them trees :)) - mina_sydney
Mina! :) - Eivind
I love that calendar, Halil. It's been around for a few years :) - Eivind
Does that mean you own a copy then? I might get next years one, as too late now as it'll be March soon! :o - Halil
Never bought it, but it was the 2010 version that inspired this post :) - Eivind

"Well I've gone and done it, I've now pointed my domains to my +Google+ page. Specifically to a search address that shows all the tidy stuff (not the status update-like posts etc.). My other blogs (WordPress.com being the main one) are sitting there collecting dust and no one reads them plus I'm always on here so it makes sense to move my "blogs" to Google+. In addition my Google+ #Currents edition is exactly what I want from a blog. It uses the content I already post here, has categories (Sections), a front page and a TOC. It works on mobiles (via Google Currents anyway) and easy to maintain The layout is basic but clean and there is nothing extra for me to do beyond what I already do on Google+. Both use hashtags queries so thank goodness I've been adding them since the very early days. I'm also thankful that I've been formatting my posts and reshares for a while. It has benefited the presentation on Currents, for one." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
Not buying it, Google+ still sucks. (Yemezler, Google+ hala poh gibi.) - @barisunver #beyn.org
In my opinion, I think people who put all their eggs in this basket are going to regret it. - Spidra Webster
I also don't understand why people would put their content on a service they don't own. - Trish R
I wouldn't do it, but if you want to, have at it. - Derrick
While I like G+, I agree about putting all your eggs in one basket - Bluesun 2600 from Android
Spidra, that's good then that I don't have any basket atm. - Kol Tregaskes
Trish, I don't have any blog of my own to talk about. - Kol Tregaskes
Has anyone here seen Google Currents btw? It's Google Flipboard. - Kol Tregaskes
@barisunver #beyn.org, why don't you like Google+? - Kol Tregaskes
Also, in regards to the notation that I put my content on someone else service. The majority of the rest of my content is on FriendFeed. I don't own that either! - Kol Tregaskes

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
Bump. - NOT THE CRICKET
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 http://friendfeed.com/friendf...) 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. In addition, there were 2 interns (Ross M. and Goutham P.) who never went to Facebook, per Tudor B., above.

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

Last friday I taped an iPhone to my head and ran around Paris capturing the most famous sights in a single (somewhat shaky) shot. Here's the video: http://vimeo.com/12906858

*spot reserved for a later comment* - Micah from iPhone
Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - Let Me Know
When you said you ran you weren't speaking metaphorically. - Eric - Let Me Know
Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson
great and inspiring - Nenko Ivanov
this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva
You can fit an iPad on my forehead. - Josh Haley
Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal
this is definitely on the list of 'quirkiest things ever done with an iPhone'. :-) - Olivia Lovag

I hope it is - Mo Kargas
If so, it'll just be transitional until smartphones are replaced by glasses-phones. Or smart glasses. Do we have an official name for those yet? - Andrew C (✔)

The Cumans originally lived east of the Yellow River, in China,[15] making them the only Caucasian people in eastern Asia at the time. The Cumans entered the grassland of Eastern Europe in the 11th century, from where they continued to assault the Byzantine Empire, the Kingdom of Hungary, and Rus - they became arch enemies. - Thomas Page from Bookmarklet

Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen

Golden View Friendfeed Image Zoom — Chrome Web Store Release v1.0 — https://chrome.google.com/webstor...
Golden View Friendfeed Image Zoom - Chrome Web Store.png
Same basic idea as friendfeed_image_zoom http://friendfeed.com/fftools... userscript, but with a few compatibility improvements and all the Chrome Web Store auto-update goodness. For Chrome users, it's recommended to uninstall yesterday's friendfeed_image_zoom userscript and install this one (however, nothing breaks if both are installed at the same time). - Micah
It works! - John (bird whisperer)
John, Eeeexcelent. - Micah
Grazie! :) - MisterQ
You're welcome, MisterQ, thanks for stopping by. - Micah
Woot! Thanks for this! =) - rönin

@Sir. Piplos lo trovi qui http://friendfeed.com/fftools... Greasemonkey, cmq) - cecca
in alternativa se non vuoi installare greasemonkey c'è questa: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... - Angelo
Thanks! :) - *Chiara*
<3 - Batchiara
will this also work in Comodo Dragon? - Halil
I'm a little confused now as to what to install and how, I use Google Chrome, Comodo Dragon which is based on Chrome's open source, and firefox, as sometimes always run in to bugs so hate relying on 1 browser these days. Do I install both fixes? - Halil
I believe Comodo Dragon is compatible with scripts written for Google Chrome. If you can't install from the Google Chrome Web Store use the friendfeed_image_zoom version which works on both Firefox (with Greasemoney add-on) and Chrome-based browsers. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Hmmm, the Golden View add-on isn't working properly for me in Chrome 18. :( It opens a new tab with the FF Search menu.) - That's So CAJ!
Oh, never mind. My "HTTPS Everywhere" seems to interfere with the script. Hmmm. - That's So CAJ!
That could interfere, yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Micah, sorry to ask again, but still confused, in firefox how exactly do i check for updates, you said i need to install it manually, but will i be prompted when an update is available? - Halil
Easiest is just install again right now (it installs over-top). I'll make an announcement post when I do future upgrades. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
:) - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
PEOPLE OF FRIENDFEED, I IMPLORE YOU IN ALL CAPS: *Install* *this* *script* - Stephen Mack
Sorry. That would require me to switch browsers. I'll just stick with not opening pix. - Hookuh Tinypants
Firefox would be great, as not a fan of chrome. I seem to remember way back when on FF that when you clicked on a photo it came up, without all this preview nonsense, what happened? Despite Facebook's failings when you post something it links the text and descriptor of article neater, I'm pretty sure FF did this originally. For example a Youtube video would link with the text of the file instead of having to manually doing it... - Jason
The brain surgeons still fumbling with keeping FF alive made a brilliant alteration to the programming to change the way photos open (you're right, they used to just open in your browser, like a normal friggin' website). Because we haven't suffered enough indignities on this site. - Hookuh Tinypants
Jason, I made a Firefox version too (see first comment for link). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks, Micah have downloaded the Zip file. - Jason
Hookah, you reckon Facebook done this on purpose? - Jason
Not sure what you mean. They purposely made the change, claiming it was a security thing. Beyond that, I don't know if they have any other intentions behind their actions. - Hookuh Tinypants
Jason, the change was intentional - Ben Golub who still admins Friendfeed stated it was for security concerns. The technique in my script is safer than restoring the original behaviour, but brings back the convenience. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It seems strange, that is all. But at least the site is still alive..http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Jason
It's ok. They can make all the changes they want. We've got Micah. I think we win. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Micah FTW :-), I'm I doing something wrong, I downloaded the zip file and then I extracted it but there seems no change.. - Jason
Jason, you'll need to install the Greasemonkey Firefox add-on first: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... - then click https://raw.github.com/wittman... to install my friendfeed_image_zoom extension. - Micah
Thanks Micah, that's great! - Jason
You're most welcome. :) - Micah
We should all buy FF - Jason
And bumping this one too. - Stephen Mack

地震や噴火の懸念される地域は天変地異はなくて、予想していない地域に天変地異は起こる。阪神大震災、新潟中越沖地震、東日本大震災、、、、、、、、、、、天災は忘れた頃にやってくる。 http://www.fujisan-3776.jp/english... - Ami Iida

Image uploads to a Friendfeed post are missing a proper content-header, so when you click the image to see the original size the browser downloads it instead of displaying it in a new tab. Is something up with the FF API that corresponds to its Amazon S3 upload module?
content-type.png
I was about to ask if you had an example of an image directly uploaded to Friendfeed. Then I thought about it. - NOT THE CRICKET
I'm not sure what the bug is conditional upon, yet, but I've only ever observed this problem in the last few days. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Thank you! - Meg VMeg
Ben Golub, you're our only hope. - Micah
I was about to inquire about this, glad I'm not the only one with this problem. - Colette
Help us Obi Ben Golubi. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I thought nobody is touching the code any more. The content type could not have been changed by its own. - ؛ patrick
This is an intentional change. - Benjamin Golub
Hi Ben. What is the reason behind the change? - Melly
It seems broken -- can no longer click on the picture in my FFHound posts to enlarge the image, it just downloads the image instead. (See http://friendfeed.com/zeigen... and click the image.) - Stephen Mack
Ben, thank you for the quick response. Was the change to cut down on hot-linking? - Micah
It's actually a site security improvement to keep us all safe :) - Benjamin Golub
Ahhh, ixnay ethay executables way. *nodding* - Micah
Heh, and I was thinking about posting a regression bug to Opera. Thank you. - Michael W. May
Well, I threw caution to the wind, so here's a browser extension I wrote to view a full size image in a new tab: http://friendfeed.com/fftools... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
@glenc, Ben is from FF. Read his comments. - ؛ patrick
While I understand that this is an "intentional change" to "keep us all safe", is there a reference for exactly the problem this is meant to solve is? I'm sure I can make an educated guess, but I'd rather understand it more fully. - Andy Bakun
Still broken... - Mitchell Tsai
No one has a reference for exactly the problem this change was meant to solve, for our safety? - Andy Bakun
It really sounds like "It's not a bug, it's a feature" :) - Yusuf Arslan
And I can accept that, if I knew what the feature actually was. - Andy Bakun
Security features. - NOT THE CRICKET
thanks for explaining this odd behaviour. maybe you should report to..facebook staff - marco barsotti
Marco, Benjamin Golub is the FB Staff that is care taking the FF website. - Me
One solution is to use Opera to browse friendfeed (it leaves you the choice to open the file anyway). And that fits well, a dying social network on a dying browser. - StM
Any clue as to what I can search for to find out what the exact attack we're being protected from is? - Andy Bakun
Andy, and for all we know the attacks could have been observed against Facebook's interface and Ben et al saw that Friendfeed simply had the same vulnerability. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
The care taking of this site by Ben is well appreciated for those who still love this service. - Eric - Let Me Know
I remember a while ago someone posted an animated gif which was apparently coming from an external host and my (and some other people's) anti virus system started showing that as a treat. The worse part is that, there are many Iranian activists here and for the Ciber Army of Islamic Republic this was the easiest way to find their IP's. We have chosen FF because it's the most free and secure environment in the net. FF didn't do anything about the spammers, at least this was a good move. - ؛ patrick
Looks like some old images don't need a download any more. - ؛ patrick
What's interesting is it's only for new posts media. All the old posts, prior to the update, still work fine. - NOT THE CRICKET
I'm about 95% positive it was due to issues related to this. http://ff.im/1fCf33 - NOT THE CRICKET
Jimminy, your profile is private, so I can't see your point. - samet
it's like that since many months. For some reason, if you browse from the iPad pictures gets displayed properly. - marco barsotti

You know what doesn't happen very often any more? People stopping you to ask for directions. But just now I was asked for the second time in two days.
ffhound_image_0.png
For some reason I reverted to my pre-GPS self and didn't look up the directions to make sure I was right. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I get asked a fair bit, actually... - Brent Schaus
... usually while I'm waiting at a bus stop. - Brent Schaus
The woman last night trying to get her boyfriend from San Jose to downtown Sunnyvale? I did a good job. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
The guy just now driving the opposite direction of the park he was trying to find? Not so good -- I left off a turn. Oops. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Brent: You must look trustworthy. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oops! lol Thanks, Stephen :) - Brent Schaus
Hey, at least he started going in the right direction after talking to me! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I get asked for directions a lot, but usually in places I don't live. The last time were in San Diego and San Francisco, I was asked for directions. Luckily, I knew where the places were without going to my phone. - Anika
I ask for directions a lot. I have no internal sense of direction or a phone with that capability activated. I am old school. :) - Steve C, Team Marina
I would probably hesitate to grab my iPhone in front of a stranger... - Stephan from iPhone
Geez dude! That's a lot of map/gps apps! I gave up on Gas Buddy a while back. - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Yeah, it's a bunch. I don't use most of them, to be honest. Mostly TomTom. - Stephen Mack
When I lived near Fisherman's Wharf, I got asked CONSTANTLY! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

I don't know, I don't see any crows at all. - Ken Gidley from iPhone
That's why scarecrows never shop at Old Navy. - Steve C, Team Marina
I tried to install a kind of scarecrow on my veranda, and that failed, too. - Maitani
I have crows at my house, and they start squawking whenever I walk outside. They'll swoop down over my head and then fly back into a tree, then repeat. Instead of me being a scarecrow that scares them away, they're being scarecrows that scare me away. :-/ - Amit Patel

"Los Angeles-based student, Madeline Sharafian has created a delightful short film for her second-year film as part of her studies at CalArts. The beautiful film is about a clever and loving dog who takes care of his depressed and exhausted owner by making sure he eats well. The dog also helps him avoid kitchen accidents such as cutting his finger or leaving the fire turned on for too long. According to Sharafian, "I wanted to make something that focuses on how meaningful it is to make food for someone you love. My family's lives practically revolve around cooking for each other, so it's a theme that I'm deeply attached to. I hope you enjoy it!"" - Brent Schaus from Bookmarklet

British scientists say they have developed a new type of wheat which could increase productivity by 30%. - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news...
British scientists say they have developed a new type of wheat which could increase productivity by 30%.
Around 10,000 years ago wheat evolved from goat grass and other primitive grains. The scientists used cross-pollination and seed embryo transfer technology to transfer some of the resilience of the ancient ancestor of wheat into modern British varieties. The process required no genetic modification of the crops. - Halil from Bookmarklet
thoughts... - Halil
At least wheat goes to humans and isn't used to geed animals and useless power initiatives. They said it's not a GMO. A concern would be the licensing model. - Todd Hoff
Hmm. They transferred genes from a different species, yet they claim it's not genetic modification? This seems like the same kind of semantic obfuscation marketers use to sell "natural" or "organic" products. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I'm not sure, victor. Cross pollination has been hot since Mendel played with his peas. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Pollination is most definitely the transfer of genetic material, though. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Absolutely, but they were related species of wheat and presumably close enough for it to work. It's not like they inserted frog DNA. I do wonder about the gluten profile of the new strain, given all the hype about that, and the carb value. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA from iPhone
I guess what I'm trying to get at is: if they simply sucked out the DNA out of an embryonic cell, spliced in the relevant sequences that provide resilience (without involving frog DNA), then reinjected the DNA back into the cell, is this really necessarily worse or even different than synthetic breeding + seed embryo transfer? I'm fairly certain it would be perceived as such, but why? - Victor Ganata
Cross pollination is one thing, (seed) embryonic transference of genetic material is essentially GM, as Victor says, it's semantics and they are trying to come across as a non-GM food. If there was no genuine GM or any kind of fiddling, why even mention that it's not GM in the first place as it should be clear from the experimental methods used! Also, they say the tests need to be... more... - Halil
