#Internet marketers, are you sure you're doing better than me? Why do you assume that you are, and that everyone needs YOUR "help"? #spam
I'm so tired of all the emails, spams, webinars, etc. And what abt the auto-DM's! - Christopher Lynn

I think Google's Wave wil once again trump the other free mail services. It's the upgrade Yahoo shld have made. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17...
Is the threat limited to other email services? Given how robust the platform is one has to wonder if it will force a radical new hierarchy in terms of "social networking sites" There may well come a time when "sites" dedicated to SN are gone and users instead gravitate toward robust multi purpose platforms wherein in SN is an embedded rather than justifying feature - Bahiyyih
@Bahiyyih Agreed.We're moving towards a web in which content will be distributed w sites merely as containers for others' content - Christopher Lynn

All done with edits. The book is finished! *exhale*.
Congratulations! What's it about, or is it a client project?:-) - Cathryn Hrudicka
It's a suspense novel! It's sucha relief to have it finished. :) - Christopher Lynn

This is my 87 yo grandmother. She's beautiful. http://img222.imageshack.us/my...
She is beautiful indeed, and she looks like she's really enjoying life! - Cathryn Hrudicka
Thanks, Cathryn. It's been rough for her lately with my grandfather being ill. She somehow remains vital :) - Christopher Lynn

Both FriendFeed and Twitter need to provide easier ways to manage friends lists.
Any thoughts on what we should do to make it easier? - Paul Buchheit
How can it be easier on FF? It is simple IMO - Drew Lucas
Dragging and dropping would be especially helpful. Having to navigate to each list via a list of links or a drop-down menu and then select users for each list is tedious. It'd also be helpful to be able to mass remove people from the home feed, and mass unsubscribe from people. Being able to duplicate a list would be great, too. - Mark Trapp
At least FF has friends lists! - Christopher Lynn
Mark: visit http://friendfeed.com/friends, select "Home feed" from the drop down and click "Add/remove friends" next to the drop down, and you can bulk-deselect people to remove them from your home feed. At the top of other friend lists, click "Add/remove friends" to bulk select people to add/remove. Does that work for you? - Bret Taylor
Bret: that definitely solves one of my issues with user management. Is the ability to remove people en masse from the home feed relatively new? I can't believe I've missed that for so long. If I remember correctly, we used to be able to select a bunch of people and subscribe or unsubscribe from them via our subscriber/subscription lists, which would also help for managing things. Now, it seems like we have to navigate to each user or hover over each user's avatar. - Mark Trapp
A drag and drop interface would be killer, but that's definitely in my "nice to have" list. - Mark Trapp
totally agree... - Buyruk Alparslan

Client Sutter Health’s Approach to Building the New Hospital Wins Major Award | Sutter Medical Center Castro Valley http://suttermedicalcentercast...

Coming up with role & job requirement descriptions for staff to gradually take over social media/community mgmt. functions at a client org.
Exciting news! - Christopher Lynn
It is! We're working on making a transition in a corporate culture where they have had to learn about social media and change mindsets. My innovation training & coaching skills are coming in handy here, as well as social media/PR/marketing experience.:-) - Cathryn Hrudicka

Scenario: You just recieved notification that you have won a contest where you will recieve income to support your current standard of living for the rest of your life (adjusting for inflation, etc). You're not any better off than you were before with the exception that you no longer have to work. What do you do now? In a year? In 5 and 10 years?
... anymore. What do you do now? In a year? In 5 and 10 years? Do you keep working to improve your financial situation or do you spend your time on other pusuits? - Lindsay
Travel. - Anika
I will do almost the same things I'm doing now, I think - directeur
Build an organization. Make an impact. - coldbrew
@Mark, yes, you can do whatever you'd like. - Lindsay
Keep working, saving the extra money toward opening a restaurant. Or a brewery. - Joey Gibson
Lindsay, tell me, you won that contest, didn't you? :) - directeur
For me, this is easy. I'd be able to take much better care of my Mom. After that responsibility passes, I'd like to travel a bit. I'd also love to take classes on things that are interesting to me. Jewelry making, musical instruments, languages, photography, whatever strikes me. - Yolanda
I'd get to have the job I'd love to do: teaching. I'd be working for the joy of it rather than for the money, which right now isn't possible due to lay offs and needing an income to support my son and me. The idea of working because you want to and not because you have to is very appealing. - Just Mrs. V
Quit my job, travel, volunteer, and open a photography studio. I have the money for these things. Working takes up too much of my time to properly pursue them. - Eric P
I'd quit two of my jobs and keep on being a pastor. I'd use that money to put toward education for my kids. - Jim: with more caffeine!
Simple, Turn my attention towards a few pet projects and work on them fulltime (as if it were a real job), and attempt to monetize them as much as possible, then move on to using the proceeds to invest, and try to see as many of my brilliant ideas come to fruition as possible. Oh, and also buy an island and protect it with frickin sharks with frickin lasers. - Daniel Bruce
Write full-time. - Steven Perez
Write fiction full-time and not care if it sells or not. - Nine DataAngel Ferdinand
if one accepts, he can't keep working, or get another job? - Marcos Marado
Spend even more time on FF! (and sleep in every day) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Not having to work frees up time to develop a second income from a hobby. - Morton Fox
My current standard of living is so lame that I would have to keep working at some sort of job just to get ahead a bit. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
spend time with my family and as much time as I possibly could on my photography. - Thomas Hawk
Write a novel and go wild with photography - Mark Philpot
I would take a vacation. Then I would try to find equal pay from some other means and take more financial risks (business, investments, etc). - Valley
Same as Thomas. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
I'd probably finally get through my pile of unwatched DVDs and actually film something. - James Ferguson
I would keep working on my startup (a media company), write more fiction, do more gardening, cook for myself more often, travel and workout more frequently. - Christopher Lynn
I would quit working full time but keep a part time job at a book store for the discount. I would also finish the degree that I am working on but probably become a full time student and study history, philosophy, literature, math, etc... I'm kind of obsessed with learning now a days. - Greg Bishop
Oh. And with my new job, I'll be more opinionated. - Valley
hookers and blow - Morgan
at least you're honest, Morgan. LOL - Jim: with more caffeine!
MVB: it used to be common. In the US at least you're hard pressed to find any private sector job that includes a pension. As for what I'd do: no idea. That's why the concept of retirement doesn't "turn me on" too much either. - FFing Enigma
I'd keep working until everything was paid off, including the mortgage, after which. . . I don't rightly know. Maybe keep working anyway. - Steve Lowe
I'd spend less time worrying and more time coding. And yes, my software would continue to be donationware. That wouldn't change, and less worrying about how to make ends meet would ensure that. - April Russo
MVB: that would by why I said 'private sector', takes the government jobs out of the equation. And living in an extremely non-union state, there are pretty much no private sector pensions anymore. - FFing Enigma
I would pull a Ben Franklin; quit working and try my hand at inventing. - Robert Hafer
