Robert Scoble
Tonight is the beginning of the end of the "geeks-only" phase of FriendFeed. Now that Guy Kawasaki is here the marketers will start showing up.
I'm showing Six Flags - sean andersen
*doffs hat in respect to the passing of the time of geeks* - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
So what's next? - Kevin Arth
yeah but unlike twitter, I'm not so sure internet marketers would feel successful on FriendFeed with everyone blocking them - Ⓐ ☠ slayerboy ☠ Ⓐ
Now on to Google Wave! - sean andersen
And the spammers too, I guess. Great.. - Citronella still FFing
And ghost posters / commenters. - Ben Hanten
Slayerboy: good marketers won't get blocked. I really appreciated getting cuts in line at Six Flags because of their Twitter contest. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Good marketers aren't most marketers :) - Brett Kelly
Brett: only good ones will survive here. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Or they will drown. - sean andersen
Only if Guy likes it will they come. and all that. - Pete D from iPhone
Robert: I don't mind good marketers, as long as they're genuine. Too many of them (particular the "social media marketing gurus") are just unforgivably obnoxious and fake in their attempts to pimp their own garbage services/blog. So, I really hope you're right :) - Brett Kelly
Bad marketers on FriendFeed will survive in search results. Do a search for a couple of terms like 'canon 135mm' and you'll see plenty of entries that are just links to people selling the lens. You're not going to block them all. I don't see that as a big problem, but I suspect they'll be successful enough there to keep them coming. - Edward Coffey
Start? I've been here for a loooong time. A few of my 'marketing' friends have been too. - AJ Kohn
Marketers phase has already started in Turkey. Friendfeed is generally used by them, or I think like that... - Sabri Küstür
we need like a freindfeed costranostra to keep the peace, and make things just poof into the ethersphere - Robert Higgins
so wish i was a freindfeed coder and i could merge with the stream and provide some community services... :AKA Hiro Protaganist - Robert Higgins
@Robert: +1 for Snowcrash reference. - AJ Kohn
I'm in Marketing, and I've been here from the beginning. Are you slandering my craft, Mr. Scoble? :) - Louis Gray
Louis: you don't work for a big brand. When you sell your souls and work for a big brand let us know, OK? ;-) - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Robert, wait, don't you work for a big brand? - Jesse Stay
Jesse: sssshhhhh. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
"Now on to Google Wave! - sean andersen" Exactly. Unless the FF core team is over there on the sandbox right now, doing all they can to start the scrambling scrum RIGHT NOW, the big GWave will assimilate all. At least until the assimilation wave after that. FF has maybe a one year window -- if that -- to make it's move, whatever that might be, starting right now. - michael silverton
Citronella - I like that the spammers are vaporized almost instantly here. Decent built in tools for group reporting. - BairdWilliamson
If I got here before Guy and I'm geekless does that give me any special designation? - Kimber Scott
michael silverton: Wave sandbox already looks like Gmail. I bet when they release it, it will be Gmail 2.0. I hope Bret & co. are studying it close... - sean andersen
Kimber: you are geeky because you were here before...whether you like that designation or not :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Louis has more than *one* soul? Or is this a left-foot, right-foot thing. Colour me confus`ed :D - Micah
LOL! Well, I guess I could be called an amateur geek... - Kimber Scott from email
Pot. Kettle. Black. - Gilbert Harding
@silverton, agreed that FriendFeed has a limited time window to figure out what it wants to be when it's all grown up.. in other news, can't believe it took Guy this long to show up here to play. Nothing wrong with a little marketing, especially if it's of the "Moving the Freeline" variety.. +1 Gilbert, LOL. - Alex Schleber
If I were Guy, or the head of any company, be it a camera shop or whatever, whenever I had a little free time, I'd tweet out, "Hey, I'm going to be on FriendFeed for an hour or so, answering any questions about Alltop, telling you about its features, advantages, and benefits, come join in!" or something like that. That's a vertical that feeds off Twitter and really enriches both platforms, utilizing them both for their strengths. - Stephen Pickering
With Leo, Steve Rubel, and Guy K now all here .. this landscape is about to change ... agreed. - Charlie Anzman
I'm reading Crossing the Chasm, only 18 years after it was published. Can I blend in as a "marketer" now? - DGentry
Say it isn't so Joe! It will be interesting to watch the transformation, will FriendFeed go to the dark side or will it make a stand :) - Owen Greaves
true.. true.. - Cesar Sanchez
So, do you think the population will tend to shift to more casual people than the creme de la creme people. I feel so, since there are only the innovative, open-minded people on FriendFeed right now; and I think the change is pretty near. - Yiğit Arda Türkoğlu
Marketing guys have always been here. The difference... tactics and respect. That being said change is always happening and even still I'm not sure Friendfeed will hit the critical mass Twitter has with marketers. The friendfeed brand will likely be defined differently than Twitter and attract different people. Time will tell. - Jim Goldstein from iPhone
why? can't marketing guys and geeks get along? - kakuei
No. We cannot get along. This war has been waged for too long, and too much blood has been spilled. Most of us no longer even remember why we are fighting, but it doesn't matter. Victory is all that matters. - DGentry
The marketers are already here, but most of them are totally clueless about how friendfeed works. They somehow think they can dump their stuff here and it will get "found" and when that doesn't work, they just go back to twitter. The ones that do understand how it works either feel it is too much damn work to fake being real to be worth it, or they are the real deal and it works quite well for them. - April Russo (FForever!)
April: I think there's some cost-benefit analysis going on there. There's a smaller crowd at FF and it takes a lot more work. Plus, most people here are marketing jaded. - Trent Hamm
Guy is a marketer, sure, but also a geek. Geeks phase ends when the Celebs show up. - Garin Kilpatrick
well if they start selling, just dont click "like" or "comment" and they will drop off the page in minutes - Mark
I think some marketers are already here..but anyway, you think Guy being here will change things much? - Rob Sellen :o)
Robert, "Wanna learn how to get 1,000's of Friendfeed friends in no time. Click here to learn my patent pending, amazing, fantastic, game-changing, and revolutionary way to gain residual income through the magic of your Friendfeed friends." Don't click yet, I was just brushing up! - Sean Powell
I'm so honored to have read this message from scoble. I'm grateful for our "geeks only" days that we've all shared! LOL - Jason Pollock
No Kidding! Welcome Guy Kawasaki, who ever your are. - Houseofmax
Yes I agree - Randy Allen Bishop
Yeah, Jim Goldstein sez it: those of us from the dark side that stumbled into these sweet precincts have kept a low profile... sorta like taking your hat off when you go to church ; > - Thom Kennon
he's actually been here awhile, just not posting, mr scoble - chaz2b
Some ppl cannot be stopped. Like me! Not geeky enough, a girl, too wall st. Watch out, cause tenacity wins every time. - Liza + = ?
Jason Pollock liked this, that is HILARIOUS! He posts the most redundant links on Twitter...a notorious spammer. At least Guy admits what he does, still somewhat annoying. Not sure why Leo Laporte was mentioned, I don't see him fitting that GK mold at all. - Benjamin Taylor
In retrospect ... it seems to have been a hit and run for now ?? Hoping not. Would be great to see him actively engaging here. A LOT to offer. Marketing crowd? ... No worries - There's always 'block, tackle and hide .....' here - Charlie Anzman
Robert, I think this is such crazy talk, you're a marketer too ;) - Jeremiah Owyang
Umm, I'm pretty sure that Guy is also a geek. Regardless of what his cool cred is...then again his cool cred is totally geek cool cred. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Guy Kawasaki does have magic initials, I will give him that. - Garin Kilpatrick
Post, Kimber added you as a friend on Goodreads. We need you to confirm that you are, in fact, friends with Kimber. To confirm this friend request, follow the below link: &utm_medium=email&utm_source=invite - Kimber ( - ♣ ♣ ♣ from email
Well now with the FB acquisition this post just seems like a jab in the eye. Poor FF. - Lindsay
Sean Powell
We’re spending more time in social media -
...and a cool graph too! - Sean Powell

How to make your website more accessible -
Nice post with video! - Sean Powell
Sean Powell
Dave Winer
Shhhh. Is it my imagination but have things gotten really quiet around here mes amigos?
Yeah, where is CloudFeed?! ;) - Sean Powell
I'm with Logical & Sean! - Jason Cronkhite from iPhone
Don Faulkner
FriendFeed still has pull. I know a teenager (with FB, no twitter) who now wants a FF account.
It seems like the pub behind the whole purchase has brought a lot of traffic to FF. - Sean Powell
Dave Winer
"we, the users, need to own a technology company -- and have it work to serve our interests..."
yes!:) - K.D.
A crowdsourced company. Don't we call that the government? ;) - Sean Powell
Dave... we have been considering this idea for a number of years, but I think that pulling it together requires more than a geek-army or an open-source collaborative ethos. 'Open' is a mind-set, not a movement... and great egalitarian strategies are possibly best not to be collectively authored, or you can find yourself in the middle of a mega-committee. Its a conundrum... But we are happy to share insights. - Simon Edhouse
Dave/Simon: someone will do it. Why not get started now? - Jason Cronkhite
Totally agree... the core idea that Dave is putting forward has been my 24/7 passion since 2006... and maybe Twitter & Friendfeed (RIP) are going to prove to be catalytic forces for this idea. Certainly Dave is a lot more accessible nowdays... ;) - Simon Edhouse
Simon, maybe with Dave's help we can form a community trust and put the thing together. :-) - Jason Cronkhite
Simon it would not be like that. I'll write a follow-up post. - Dave Winer
I would like to understand the financial vehicles to do this. Simon, I also agree that there has to be a structure that allows for users interests to be aligned with business growth for their benefit and the founders. Too often what happens when investors step in for pure financial return is the goal becomes focused on how to turn the company, "the exit", and not on building a sustainable company to enrich lives of the user base. - Jason Cronkhite
well... to quote Robert Burns, "The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray"... Firstly I totally agree with Dave's other post (i.e. "Rex, you're making it too complicated..") where he outlines the structure of the Public Company... no problem there. I have reasoned out the same model some time ago. - I see it like a series of check-boxes that have to be ticked... and probably... more... - Simon Edhouse
Understand & agree for the most part. RE: BIG IDEA, don't know if it really has to be earth moving all the time but rather something that enough users can stand to benefit from both of using the product and financially. Simon, how about publishing your checklist and trying to get a following around the movement? - Jason Cronkhite
The BIG IDEA is crucial... once you see it, you can't stop thinking about it, and that's what is needed to get massive buy-in. - "get a following around a movement" No... I can't drum that up. I am too small a fish, and not living in a VC hotspot. Dave's the man, if he can control his notorious crankiness (we love you Dave)... However, yes, I can add-value, but who am I? Dave has started to pull together this particular cosmic dust cloud. Let's see if he can truly lead it. - Simon Edhouse
The crowdcorp concept is the way to go, now how do we make it happen? It is tough to manage efficiently the requirements of a community - Alberto Saavedra from Nambu
RE: BIG IDEA, maybe so - maybe not...remains to be seen. RE: you're not the one, it takes powers of 2, lots of passion, determination and as Seth Godin would say a Tribe. Sure, Dave may be one to press the issue forward but this notion requires an ARMY. Dave, maybe you can enlist Scoble and the Building43 community to push this effort. - Jason Cronkhite
[edit] ...There are those on the web that are captivated by their own notoriety, as if being involved in social-networks is a popularity contest. - It isn't. If this project idea falls into the hands of the 'lime-light-seekers', who seem to have short attention cycles, it will rapidly go off-course. (that's my own personal view) - Simon Edhouse
Ah, Simon. I understand you but, this is where the Power of 2 comes in so handy (you need both - the Edhouse's & Scoble's). Keeping people on course and captivated require different talents. Maybe Scoble & Winer are perfect balances. Maybe it's others but more importantly, you need all shapes, colors and credes to do something like this and the power of collective intelligence and influence. - Jason Cronkhite
LOL... maybe we need a Jason Cronkhite too - Simon Edhouse
Its a jigsaw puzzle... but, like those super tricky huge jigsaw puzzle's, to complete it, someone needs to have the picture that encapsulates the final vision. - Simon Edhouse
Agreed Simon! I'm willing to help. - Jason Cronkhite
OK... next we need a money person... who gets it. Someone who can resource this... Its not going to go anywhere much till that person steps up. - Simon Edhouse
They are around. I forwarded a pointer to my piece today with a guy I'm working with on another project. - Dave Winer
Cool Dave. Let's keep the conversation going. I would love to see this happen. - Jason Cronkhite
I have detailed Info-memorandum type docs, and have sent overviews to John Nesheim ( who has given the core-ideas his thumbs-up, and offered to introduce me to VCs etc... John is a great guy, very smart and accessible. We had a long Skype chat a while ago... he gets it. - Simon Edhouse
Fantastic Simon! Are VC's really what's needed 1st? - Jason Cronkhite
VCs are probably exactly not what's needed as they (generally) are always thinking of their exit, and being risk-averse by nature they tend to look for 'me-too' plays... (projects that have successful precedents in the marketplace) ... No, an Angel Investor is what's needed. But there still has to be a killer Business Model as money people are always in the business of making more... more... - Simon Edhouse
Not to get ahead of ourselves but, even before an Angel don't we just need a passionate following of people (users of products/services they may want to own)? - Jason Cronkhite
It seems to me what is needed is a platform to evangelize the concept, get people behind the cause. Of course, a financial plan as to how users might contribute to show tangible interest would help in gaining validation and traction for larger investor types. - Jason Cronkhite
well... I instinctively take a different view on that. Not to say you are wrong, I am just really aware of the 'politics' of collaboration, the realities of project 'execution', and the realities and importance of I.P. protection for investors, even if it may become a public company (which by the way is a VERY expensive process to go through and carries with it a raft of responsibilites... more... - Simon Edhouse
point well taken simon, agreed. so, let's see if dave wants to help assemble the core group, open discussion, have a meeting of the minds in-person and push things forward. - Jason Cronkhite
Just opened a private group, "User Ventures" and sent you an invite, Simon/Dave. - Jason Cronkhite
"Jason assembled a great group of heroes, known as the Argonauts after their ship, the Argo. The group of heroes included the Boreads (sons of Boreas, the North Wind) who could fly, Heracles, Philoctetes, Peleus, Telamon, Orpheus, Castor and Pollux, Atalanta, and Euphemus." - Simon Edhouse
Very Cool! :-) - Jason Cronkhite
Then we all can start IPO's afterwards :) and sell our life-streams to google. - Chirag Chamoli
Simon, Argo User Ventures is assembled as a group awaiting the rest of the Argonauts :-) - Jason Cronkhite
LOL at the irony of opening a private group for this. - Nick Lothian
Nick, do you plan to contribute? - Jason Cronkhite
Nick, I have no qualms of opening up the group after those who plan to contribute help to establish a framework for the group. Foundations must be part of anything new even user centric organizations. So, if being an active contributor to help users suits you the group needs you and any other user advocate for that matter. - Jason Cronkhite
This company crowdsourced their funding: - Ray Cromwell
Another axis to think about is whether a particular idea even needs to be owned by a single entity, public, or otherwise. Chances are, if you're inventing another communication protocol/network to piggy back on the internet/web and ship data around, it isn't always necessary to have a single point of failure. Rather, you're taking a fault-tolerant network protocol (TCP/IP) and layering... more... - Ray Cromwell
Ray, just reached out to Charles Armstrong of Trampoline. - Jason Cronkhite
Interesting points Ray, and yes, the technology idea you outline is in accord with some of the ideas we have been building on... but inventing another open protocol does not necessarily a profitable people's Company make. - and Nick, as regards the irony of a private discussion... Sometimes you have to be smart... and being 'smart' is also about being prudent and careful., - Simon Edhouse
I agree, but some things are commodities/public goods and not really something that should be walled off just to try and extract profits. (Which I'm not against, I just think there are plenty of other things to make profits on than setting up more toll bridges) Would RSS have taken off if a single company owned it and all feeds had to be hosted through their domain? Maybe, but I think we'd all be worse off than the current situation. - Ray Cromwell
Yes... I agree, and this is a very interesting area. - Probably the only way I can get us out of this log-jam is to go deeper and state that I am interested in two key symbiotic projects. One being an open platform, and the other being a separate (and at arms length) vehicle to redefine the way commercial contacts between buyer and seller, or advertiser/vendor and viewer/client are conducted. - Simon Edhouse
Simon: you are a jerk if you think I do this to "seek the limelight." I shared OTHER PEOPLE'S posts here more than 21,000 times. That is called sharing. I travel the world and point my camera at OTHER PEOPLE. Building communities is hard work and the fact that you have started this project by being an asshole does not bode well for its future. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
I went and looked and Simon never even participated here. Two likes. What a jerk. - Robert Scoble from iPhone
Mark: I agree, but I won't help a guy who questions my integrity and is a jerk. Maybe if he apologizes. Plus he's already proven he doesn't participate so WTF does he know about building a community? Geesh. - Robert Scoble
If I may... this is a fantastic political opportunity for all of us (bystanders like myself, geeks and users). I can hardly follow half the things you write (although I google most of it), but I watch the process as an experiment on "Open" Democracy through Open Source. My best wishes on its success no matter who partakes. If there is anything a civilian can contribute, please don't hesitate to ... well poke. :-)) - constantinos alexacos
No, the IPO comes first, before anything else. - Dave Winer
Read up on public shell companies. - Dave Winer
Just to add my two cents: I am a relative small fry here in this big community and have been fortunate enough to have participated in interesting discussions with both Scoble and Dave. Both have found the time (at least to some degree) to engage with me and I have since wondered how they do it (or at least how much time it takes). - Sean Powell
(Part 2) It seems based on these comments that something like this will need EVERYONE to actually be successful. With the advent of these technologies - friendfeed and (dare I say it) twitter - we now how the ability to truly get everyone involved and weigh in on decisions. That is the key here. Then we can help settle questions like: "Who decides where we go? What we do? Who's involved?" That last question should not even be considered. imho - Sean Powell
Gee, calling people "jerks" and "assholes" is just too easy in this kind of forum isn't it? But you know Robert, I did not say that you had no integrity. What I was saying was that, if something like this were to develop in an integral fashion, as in [def:] "...necessary to make a whole complete; essential or fundamental", then its not about obtaining mass publicity first off... which... more... - Simon Edhouse
Simon, you wrote, and I quote "Pleeeeeese.... not Scoble. - Its gonna take buckets of wisdom, and patience and dare I say it, integrity." - Robert Scoble
Dave, the idea of: "...the IPO comes first" baffles me. - IPOs are very expensive, and would only seem to raise the level of risk. - What is the reason that you take that position? - I think great companies are built on great ideas, and without the solid foundation of a 'great idea', I (and other's) would sense that its an ideologically driven foray... Foundations are important. - Simon Edhouse
That, to, me, says you were saying that I didn't have any integrity. - Robert Scoble
Simon: but your last statement is better. I still think your first statement was pretty damn rude, though, and when someone calls you on your rudeness, your first answer should be "I'm sorry." - Robert Scoble
That's what my community website network is all about. See for an example. The site is owned by the community. - Craig Shipp
IPO? The IPO market doors have been shut for sometime. Thanks for the chuckle. - cheapsuits
yep... I'm sorry if that offended you, really. Loose words... I don't know you, and you don't know me. Over a coffee, we would probably have a chuckle and find quite a bit of common ground. Please accept my apology. It was an off the cuff remark, poorly executed. - Simon Edhouse
Robert... gee I should have looked at your pic before insulting you! - Lucky I'm on the other side of the planet. ;) (I'm an Aussie, from English stock... fairly reserved, and nowhere near the buzzy west coast of the US. - so on quite a different frequency) - Simon Edhouse
Apology accepted, now we can move on. Thanks! - Robert Scoble
Ok... The trigger for this discussion was Dave's clarion call: ""we, the users, need to own a technology company -- and have it work to serve our interests..." ~ Its a meme that obviously resonates with many. There's been a shift to user-control, and libertarianism rolling forward for years on the web... and the implied friction-point (which is very real) is the tension between the Web... more... - Simon Edhouse
agreed. - Thomas Hawk
Simon / Robert: Glad you guys made up :-) ... Simon, I am interested in your points of view and think there is a lot of merit to the visioning process with great leadership. I think Robert is one of the best evangelists for technology there is and letting the Scobleizer do what he does best has a time and place and I think Robert knows this and I'm sure he can move forward once there is... more... - Jason Cronkhite
Forgive me if I don't understand, but isn't the purpose of a company to make profits? Why not create a foundation akin to Mozilla or Apache instead? The closest service-oriented foundations I can think of are Wikipedia and It becomes interesting to me if we're talking about a services-oriented organization that provides end-user services built on top of existing and future... more... - Ankush Narula from iPhone
Ankush, I think the differentiation is that users contribution to these companies are not being rewarded. Why can the users as well as founders not be rewarded when they are essentially building the value of the company together. Companies cannot become valuable without customers so, they need each other and if users/customer bring up the valuation of the company why not have the... more... - Jason Cronkhite
But what's the end goal? Rewards or integrity? You have to find a balance in any for-profit venture. However, non-profits are driven largely by vision and integrity (ideally speaking). So let me ask some more questions. If you're laying down your money as a user+investor, won't your interests change from time to time? If you actually take a company like this public who controls the... more... - Ankush Narula
Brian... Wikipedia is a pretty good example of a company that operates for its users and is almost totally dependent on its users. However, it has no real business model, but retains a hugely valid place in most of our lives. - There is however an answer to the current dilemma/stalemate that folks here have been yearning for, and it is perfect and simple. In a nut-shell I would call it:... more... - Simon Edhouse
...and now its 4.00am down under, and I have to hit the sack... G'night fellow travellers. - Simon Edhouse
Simon... if we're talking alternatives to client-server the only one that I can think of is true distributed peer-to-peer. So perhaps a collective of such companies working together under an umbrella would be very effective since we would see many various incarnations of user+investor style companies. Interesting... - Ankush Narula
My only concern there, and its a well researched concern, is about secuity of the core protocol. there's a huge amount that can be 'open' on top, but the base transport protocol, sitting on TCP/IP needs to be super-tight, and solid. best kept as a trade secret, inside an ultimately publicy owned Company, that has rules to prevent corporations ever owning more than 10% of the stock. If... more... - Simon Edhouse
Update, I contacted Charles Armstrong, CEO of Trampoline last night and he's interested to join and learn more about this. He may be popping in soon. - Jason Cronkhite
Simon... Check out this presentation on wuala's architecture if/when you have time: - Ankush Narula
Dave ---- If I may comment about your original post sorry!), I found the post pretty inspiring. I advise on social media for an agency (no flames, please) and one of the things I talk about is "sensible" and "realistic" ROI. What I mean is very clear: we're not going to use bullshit metrics like "awareness" or "impressions" to measure whether or not our work had an effect on the brand.... more... - Michael E. Rubin
Ankush... had a quick look, but immediately I see a big discord with what I've been thinking/planning. i.e. "You can upload any file of any size"... that is a continuation of the situation that has got P2P systems into so much trouble, and stigmatized the technolgy. Its great in one sense, but it invites Piracy, copyright theft etc etc. P2P is THE logical system for the internet, (its... more... - Simon Edhouse
Public shell looks like a good alternative, is it too early to bring VRM ideas to the promised land scenario? - Alberto Saavedra
gee, don't get me started on VRM... nice philosophy, but very naive. (uh oh, 4.24am... damn) Bye... - Simon Edhouse
The users owning it - it's the Open Source model! - Marcos Marado from fftogo
We touched on 'GOOG' & 'Business Models' yesterday... my observation about the prevailing status quo paradigm for web-advertising is summarised here: - Simon Edhouse
hmmm... ok, if the concept of "Web Advertising" elicits such a nonplussed reaction, reflect on this: Contacts between vendor and buyer, and the drawing of these two parties together via promotion or request, is the basic process that 'Advertising' tries to achieve. However, as Danah Boyd highlighted in her December 2007 blog piece, (Who clicks on ads? And what might this mean?),... more... - Simon Edhouse

Jason Cronkhite
Stemmed from Dave Winer's post and discussion - how can we proceed to build sustainable user-oriented businesses? Who should be involved? How should this proceed?
I'm writing about this at the moment, too. I'll see if I can get it done amidst all the distractions (um, I mean important work! right that's it...) at the day job. - Don Faulkner
The short version: it's more complicated than we thought at first. And, we've been here before, 15 years ago; we didn't fix the problem then either. - Don Faulkner
Don: What are some of the main issues? Do you mind sharing? - Sean Powell
It's going to evolve a bit, but here are couple of points (been busy actually working....) - Don Faulkner
Point 1. A single point of interaction always invites failure. That's what we've seen this week with Twitter, and FriendFeed. The knee-jerk reaction is to distribute the interaction. Distributed is good because even if your stuff goes away, mine's unaffected. (This is basically a restatement of what everyone else is saying.) - Don Faulkner
Point 2. Distributed can be bad too. The value here is in the "hub" model that sites like Twitter, FF, and FB provide. Same goes for places like Flickr, etc. I don't have enough content to make my site terribly valuable on my own, and neither do you. If we combine our content, the whole becomes more than the sum of the parts. Also, we don't have to PAY to run nasty servers and Internet goo that way. - Don Faulkner
* Point 2 is has some themes similar to the "Digital Sharecropper" conversation (see but I really wanted to talk more about the advantages to us "sharecroppers" than our exploitation. In effect, we're bartering. We reward quality tools (like FriendFeed!) by adding quality content (ahem, like this!). - Don Faulkner
Point 3. Social media is either ephemeral (IRC, IM, etc.) or (semi-)durable (Twitter, FF, FB, Flicker, etc.) and we use the two types differently and we have different expectations (gee, that should be obvious). Despite the youth of many of these services, we expect "our" content to be durable over the long-term. It's the misalignment of these expectations that creates the heartburn we're all feeling now. - Don Faulkner
Point 4. About 15 years ago, someone realized that URL's some times went dark for no good reason. People would move their site to a different server, a different path, etc. Back then, someone pointed out that while DNS was a great way to find a server that held web pages, DNS and URL's might not be the best way to go about finding entire sites. Rather than addressing this problem with a different scheme, the Internet invented Google and search saved the day. - Don Faulkner
Point 5. Our current situation is but another version of the DNS/URL/web site problem of yesteryear. We still need to find a way to move things without breaking the interconnections. Not having this didn't hurt the early web much because everything was loosely connected. Social networks are the exact opposite: the more interconnected things are, the better. - Don Faulkner
That's about as far as I've gotten so far. I have some technical ideas I'm playing with. They are similar to how DNS works, with decentralized, caching, searchable data. I'd say more about them, but I don't have a firm enough grasp to explain any better at the moment. - Don Faulkner
I welcome conversation about it all, but I don't want to monopolize this thread any more than I already have. I'm going to move my conversation about those ideas to a new one ( Not to split the conversation, but to give others the floor here. (apologies for monopolizing this thread as much as I have.) - Don Faulkner
Hey Don - Sorry for the hit and run! I had to get some of what you call "real work" done. Many thanks. - Sean Powell
Don, thanks for laying out your thoughts. Don/Sean, expect an invite to the group I've created -- Argos User Ventures -- to try and hash out some of these concerns and thoughts. - Jason Cronkhite
Looking forward to it Jason! Thank you both. - Sean Powell

I prefer FF over twitter and facebook, but all my friends are on twitter and/or facebook. Maybe facebook will get it right this time now that it has acquired FF.

@scobleizer i can speak english and i beg you to remove bann from all russian friendfeeders, because we are all from it-community, working in internet companies and we came with peace, you asked for feedback from friendfeed addicts — we show you how really it is being frf addicts, we change names, we chat, we making things that are not serious. Why so serious? Unlock people, they are not bots, they just playing the game of real addicts and have fun. Common. - ideali

Don Faulkner
Should social networks be centralized or distributed? There are problems both ways. Maybe solutions too. Some immature ideas...
I thought I'd come over here to talk because I was monopolizing another thread ( the basic discussion is: how should social networks be constructed? - Don Faulkner
To summarize my points from over there, centralized invites failure due to loss of the sevice (FF,, twitter); decentralized reduces value for all concerned: more piping, less content. Moving social nets is even harder than moving web sites due to interconnectivity, so any new tech needs to account for that. - Don Faulkner
Don - Has thought been put into a system that has a record of keep (centralized) that almost runs as a backup of sorts to a distributed (decentralized) communication platform. Obviously, you have a lot of redundancy but smarter people than myself could figure out efficient ways to limit bandwidth constraints. I guess I would describe it as a twitter/ff like system with several (to use your example) DNS (registrar?) types to manage the backbone/backup. - Sean Powell
It also would not be dependent on any one node whether it was one of the backup/nameserver type or not. Even if every backup host was lost the communication would be separate enough to continue is a decentralized way (with the chance that data could be lost but i bet that issue could be solved to). Some initial thoughts as I soak this in so please be gentle :). - Sean Powell
Interesting to say the least gentlemen. In terms of decentralization vs. centralization, I think the key here is that user ownership is a major determining factor. If there were public or communal ownership rights given to the users who create the value and content of the network there would not be a need for founders to take the company else where, be acquired, etc. If we had the chance to build a users network that we all had a stake in, contributed to, and helped finance we all stand to benefit right? - Jason Cronkhite
Dave Winer
Q's for FB/FF -- 1. How long will FF continue as a service? 2. I want to export my data and subscriptions.
Yes! Dave Winer is asking the same questions as me, I feel smart for once! - Mark
Will eventually become a Facebook landing page? - Mark
Really? Just like that? - Ankush Narula
Do you and other FF'ers feel this is a bad thing? Will it lead to the end of friendfeed (as we know it)? I know you are asking that question but I am wondering what people are thinking will happen. Thx! - Sean Powell
Yeah. I want my data too!!! - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
Agreed. I have a FB profile, but I don't enjoy using that site and don't want it to mix with my FF stuff. Really hope FF stays alive and as separate as I want. - Carlos Eberhardt
i'm more interested in what will be forced to happen with FF usernames - given that FB force people to use their real/full names. - kosso
I second Dave on the FF data Export and Sub's. !1 - Peter Dawson
.. though having said that, I do notice a lot of 'full' names here ... hmm... - kosso
agreed - andy brudtkuhl
Does this mean that in the fall we all move to wave? - Bluesun 2600
I remember asking a Facebook employee about how to do something in a group I created. The deleted my account w/o warning because it wasnt a personal account despite the sheer number of them out there. Point....I want to export. Now. - beersage (it will ask for you username and your API key as password) doesnt seem to give out all my/your posts. I dont see a way to do it using the API. Anyone got any aditional info? - Mario Valente

It's about frickin' time, Guy! You're the guy who handed Steve Balmer a Macbook Air as a symbol of good design and yet you've been using Twitter all this time? Either start using friendfeed or switch to using Dells. You can't have it both ways. :) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
You missed out on the earlier days of FriendFeed, but then it's never too late to start using it. - imabonehead
I don't think Guy understands he can write comments to his posts, instead of new posts to conversate - Stephen Pickering
Welcome, we arent experts here but we manage to muddle through some how - Robert Higgins

Rackspace competitor ServInt on Rackspace: Wow.
Yeah wow. What an incredibly classy article. - Chris Foley
Yeah, every Rackspace employee I've talked with around the world today feels punched in the gut because of the downtime we've had. Not a good two weeks. - Robert Scoble
It's an amazing group of people working here, though, and watching them go through a tough time makes me realize just how good they are. - Robert Scoble
I"m sure. Nothing you can do but move on. - Mike White
It puts in focus how one should run a business. I am also a Rackspace customer. - Sean Powell
No, and I'm sure that's a terrible situation for both Rackspace and their customers, resellers, et al. One point made well by Reed Caldwell in that ServInt article is that any negativity-based sales pitch/promos are inconsistent with keeping the customers' best interests in mind. This goes double for political campaigns. - Chris Foley
Mike and Sean: yup, it's a real time for us to look in the mirror and question everything we're doing. I'd hate to be the team running the datacenter because so many people's businesses and careers are on their shoulders. Real responsibility isn't easy to bear. - Robert Scoble
Chris: I know I'll never even consider doing such a campaign in the future and if ServInt ever has troubles I'll be the first one on the phone offering help. - Robert Scoble
Robert, that's pretty brutal, but what can you do? Keep your nose down and keep moving forward. If I remember correctly it was caused by a fire, no? It's not your fault. - Mike White
Mike: nah, the fire was in one of our competitors (we weren't the only one with downtime the past two weeks) but our two incidents were power related. - Robert Scoble
Incidentally, if it makes you feel any better Robert, I've learned a lot from your feed, comments, and likes here on FriendFeed. You've been instrumental in my web tech awareness. Peanuts, i know. But I appreciate you. - Mike White
Robert - as much as these outages hurt us, we know what it means to our customers (many of whom have become our friends). It is painful. But we getter better by experiencing it, and working through it. It gives us an even greater sense of urgency to not let it happen again. People don't work at Rackspace - they make it an avocation! :) We will continue to get better, and will always put customers before Rackers, and Rackers before selves. THAT is what makes us a great company. - Rob La Gesse
Very classy and good use of social media. - Jeff Haynie
Big thumbs up for ServInt for writing that piece. I'm sure many others tried to kick you while you were down. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
