Yeah, but it's Generation X's fault that we have to look at all those "Y"s... We(they?) started it. (I get a little confused. I'm 30, so which side of the fence am I really on?) - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
:D I saw one of those today :P - comix aka martha
ewwww - Shey
Kamilah, I'm in the same boat. 31, and every definition says I fall between the X and Y cracks. Which, in light of this post, kinda grosses me out. - FFing Enigma
LOLZ Tina. I guess it's the shadow effect of my parents being a little too young to be true Boomers. I'm a little too young to be Gen X - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Just missing a strange looking tattoo and you're there Shey - Charlie Anzman
:) why y? - FlyMeToTheMoon from email
I thought Gen-Xers were older than Ys? - Shey
Yes, Shey, what made you think otherwise? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
According to that, I'm officially an Xer. Once again, I apologize on behalf of this entire generation for the saggy pants that refuse to go away. We though it was cute. Fun. Temporary. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I'm Generation Y. But my butt-crack is firmly concealed. Unless I'm at home... - Shey
@Andrew Thanks your link - FlyMeToTheMoon from email
ahahahah - Susan Beebe
darn kids...pull your britches up!!!! - Stephanie Segel
lol true - Will Higgins™
Hahaha! - Anne Bouey
I would hate to see Generation - ( )X( ) - Adam Helweh
lol@Adam - Shey
heehee - AJ Batac
My co-worker to a T...or Y. - Jack&Cleo
Lol, this picture really describe our generation lol - Moon
@Kamilah oops, I misunderstood what you were saying. Yes, you're right -- it's totally Gen X's fault. - Shey
lol,,, - Ashanti
I don't want to see the other side of that… - Daniel Schildt

Looks like Friendfeed broke 1 million unique visitors on the compete.com charts for the first time last month. Congrats Friendfeeders!

I just noticed Louis Gray mentioned this in comment Saturday morning at 2 am. Did I miss the party? - Daniel J. Pritchett
The party was held. Photos were not taken. - Louis Gray
The revolution was not televised after all... - Daniel J. Pritchett
Correct me if I'm wrong: isn't breaking 1M on Compete.com irrelevant? Those numbers are a loose estimate, based on less than 1% of US users ... with global reach, they MUST have hit 1M months ago (alexa says only 26% of FriendFeed users are from the USA) - Joel Bennett
No metric is per se irrelevant. If we want to celebrate FF hitting a meaningless milestone, why not? It's not as if anyone's using this graph as justification for an argument. - Daniel J. Pritchett
the party was held - the only participants were those on the default list :) - Allen Stern
I just had our IT guy compare our google analytics with Compete stats and Compete was reporting about 30% of what the google stats showed. - Laura Norvig
Any pointers to trend-tracking sites besides Compete, Alexa, Google Trends, Quantcast, StatCounter Global Stats and Trendrr? - Sean McBride
well deserved - Thomas Power
YAY, that is impressive - congrats FF team :) - Susan Beebe
Congrats, FriendFeed. But how many registered users? :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Kol - all you have to do is look at the people on the default list - look at how many subs scoble has - i'd bet the total subs isn't more than a few x more. - Allen Stern
Wow! One of the reasons is probably the better permalinks we got in the latest big update. Friendfeed indexes way better now by Google. - Svartling

wow...they're getting creative now....is it that bad out there? - Ⓐ ☠ slayerboy ☠ Ⓐ
Must not be too bad if they can afford $700 for Photoshop... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I know it's cynical, but I can't help but remember a quote from Chris Rock: "If a homeless person has a funny sign, he hasn't been homeless that long. A real homeless person is too hungry to be funny." - Victor Ganata
Good points Kamilah and Victor. Although, technically you don't need Photoshop to be able to 'shop photos :P Gimp, ImageMagick, Paint, etc, etc - Ⓐ ☠ slayerboy ☠ Ⓐ
My father met a similar demise. God I hate ninjas!!! - Johnathan K. Johnson
It may not be Photoshopped. I saw a guy on the streets of San Diego with a sign exactly like this. He didn't look like he'd been homeless for very long, though. - Victor Ganata
There was a old guy who panhandled in downtown Montreal years and years ago, who told the most incredible "hard luck" stories - a different story every day about why he needed your spare change. It was like a busker playing tunes in the subway; people would stop and give him money just to hear whatever story he'd come up with next. I often wonder what happened to him. - Rebecca Leaman
Hm, Victor. A "homeless" meme, perhaps? (I put it in quotes because I think many of those folks with signs are fakes. Not all, but many.) - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
There's a guy in Seattle with the same sign. Usually hangs out near Pacific Place. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

I think there should be an international investigation into the fact Rahsheen wasn't included until now. :) I always assumed he had been, and that oversight has been rectified. - Louis Gray

Thanks dude, now to start on the next score loss - activity level is going to have increase a lot though if I want to maintain it. - Pete D
I hear you, Pete. I'm up early and at the gym at least three days a week now. But 20lbs. is nothing to sneeze at. - Derrick
