FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more
"Today we are launching version 2 of the FriendFeed API for beta testing. We focused on making the API simpler to use, and we added number of compelling new features." Documentation: - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
OAuth? Sweet. Thanks a lot for all the new good stuff in the API: can't wait to use it. - Mark Trapp
very nice. great work! - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
Yet another reason to like Bret. :-) - Jesse Stay
Great!!! - YungSang from FriendFoo
nice! - Daniel Rust
good job guys, I bet devs are jumping high right now - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Sweet, congrats! - Ivan Zuzak
nice, good to see OAuth support, this will enable a larger 3rd party ecosphere around FriendFeed, I hope - Jeroen De Miranda
After going through the documentation and playing around with some feeds, I love the fact that you can now see the subscriber lists of people who have their feeds set to private as long as you are subscribed to them and authenticate (mimicking the main site functionality). One thing that's absent is a discussion of Direct Messages. Do they show up in feeds if you authenticate? How do we find just direct messages? - Mark Trapp
Mark: direct messages are accessed using the feed ID "filter/direct". Read more about feed IDs at Also direct messages appear in the "home" feed. - Benjamin Golub
Benjamin: ahhh, I see it now. I missed it when skimming that list over. Thanks! - Mark Trapp
Can you post the wget version of the command line? - Gabe
Gabe: wget --user=bgolub --password=passwd --post-file=MyPhoto.jpg should work. In theory. Edit: nope. I'm not sure it's possible to do with wget. - Mark Trapp
Thanks God it is New API. - AlpB. from iPod
Nice progress here with this release! - Micah
I love it! - friday night
Why is wget questionable? - Gabe
Gabe: wget doesn't support multipart forms as a design decision. If you post a file, FriendFeed returns a 404, and if you post data, the query is too long for wget to handle. - Mark Trapp
Good work, look forward to seeing what developers can create - Joe Dawson
doublepluslike - Vezquex
curl FTW. - Jeremy Kunz
This is great, FriendFeed team. Good job. - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Woowoo, bgolub's password is “passwd” ;-) - Amit Patel
Amit: I wonder how many people tested that :) - Benjamin Golub
Thanks to bgolub posting his password, I now have all of FriendFeed's secret documents about notorious users, useless metrics, Justin Timberlake's promoting FF on Oprah's show, hiring Colbert as a spokesperson, Ev Williams being just a “distraction”. TechCrunch is going to love this! ;) - Amit Patel
Yes big big thanks to the whole team for all their hard work!! - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ from iPhone
thank you;) waiting for the release :) loving clone - abdellah from FriendFeed API Example
Yay subscribers exposed! - EricaJoy
Finally OAuth, I had a hard time memorizing my remote key. - Hugh Isaacs II
This is indeed very cool, anybody started on a c# version? - Jesper Lind

The Spill, The Scandal and the President -
The Spill, The Scandal and the President
"Minerals Management Service, the agency in the Interior Department charged with safeguarding the environment from the ravages of drilling, descended into rank criminality. According to reports by Interior's inspector general, MMS staffers were both literally and figuratively in bed with the oil industry. When agency staffers weren't joining industry employees for coke parties or trips to corporate ski chalets, they were having sex with oil-company officials. But it was American taxpayers and the environment that were getting screwed. MMS managers were awarded cash bonuses for pushing through risky offshore leases, auditors were ordered not to investigate shady deals, and safety staffers routinely accepted gifts from the industry, allegedly even allowing oil companies to fill in their own inspection reports in pencil before tracing over them in pen. "The oil companies were running MMS during those years," Bobby Maxwell, a former top auditor with the agency, told Rolling Stone last year. "Whatever they wanted, they got. Nothing was being enforced across the board at MMS."" - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Just for the record, I would like a job where I at least had the moral dilemma to decide whether to engage in coke parties or trips to corporate ski chalets. What degree is required for that? - Eric - Poppa Large
Eric: I don't think they had to choose between coke parties and ski trips; I'm pretty sure they got to do both, just not always at the same time. - Gabe
+++ Gabe - Fossil Huntress
TBH I don't think this has anything to do with Obama. I daresay no one knew MMS even existed before this disaster - LANjackal
I have a hard time blaming this on Obama either. Sounds like BP had a truly spectacular well with 100-120K barrel flow, they were cutting every corner the could to cut costs, for no obvious reason, they simply had no safety margin and badly managed a very difficult to manage well. I think MMS is mostly a product of Bush era gutting of nearly every regulatory agency, with special emphasis on gutting regulation of their friends in oil and coal. - Ed Millard
NY Times recently had an article on Nigeria. They've averaged an Exxon-Valdez class spill every year for the last 50 years(with the help of sabotage and thieves). Exxon and Shell have completely corrupted the government and there is almost no regulation. They let pipes rust until they burst and then fix them after they've devastated the local community. Oil is just a very powerful, very corrupting industry, has been for a century. - Ed Millard
I heard about MMS during the 2008 election and had fun saying they were "literally" in bed with the oil companies (everyone was making fun of Biden for how often he says literally). Was I the only one paying attention? - Ruchira S. Datta
it's not if you're paying attention or not (well it is, but..) what you're paying attention to is most important - Chris Heath
Is this really a surprise? Everyone knew that the Bush administration was in bed with big oil... just not also this literally. - Björn Brembs
The oil industry details - not just, but especially the scandals - that the gulf spill brings to the surface are very interesting. It's impressive how the day-to-day practices of this industry that affects the very core of our industrialized existence have been kept out of the limelight for so long. Btw, I don't think anything about that is going to change fundamentally in the... more... - Mustafa K. Isik

Why the Apple iPhone 4 Isn’t for Me -
Quote: "Do I think the iPhone 4 is sexy? Absolutely yes. It has so many things going for it but AT&T’s shoddy network is holding it back." YUP. - Louis Gray
If the iPhone 4 were not limited to AT&T, would you be giving up your EVO to return to the iPhone? - Jandy
Jandy, options beyond AT&T are good, but no, it's more than that at this point. I feel the iPhone 4 practically caught up to the EVO, but Android is being improved at a much faster rate, has a wider range of handsets and is on more carriers. - Louis Gray
Louis, thanks. Most of what I hear against the iPhone is bitching about AT&T; I've been wanting to hear some purely software/hardware comparisons without reference to the network, but those are hard to find. :) - Jandy
the FF android group has some good links and discussions. I am an HTC Incredible user (Verizon). The phone rocks. I could care less how good the A4 is. No need for it. - Mike Nencetti
"but Android is being improved at a much faster rate, has a wider range of handsets and is on more carriers" my thoughts exactly. iPhone 4 might have just caught up with EVO 4G but there will be 3 just as awesome Android phones out this summer.. etc :) - Paul Stamatiou

"But on the five-person board, only two of us -- Alfred Lin, our CFO and COO, and myself -- were completely committed to Zappos's culture. This made it likely that if the economy didn't improve, the board would fire me and hire a new CEO who was concerned only with maximizing profits. The threat was never made overtly, but I could tell that was the direction things were going." - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
Talk about clueless: "Some board members had always viewed our company culture as a pet project -- "Tony's social experiments," they called it." - Todd Hoff

Don't care if it sucks. I'll be seeing it. If it sucks I'll just be seeing it with more beer in me. - Jason P
Preparing for the worst and hoping for the best? - Damien Franco from BuddyFeed
It can be done, word is they follow the Ultimates storyline so it will be Captain America's movie. Cap will just be thawed out, a Buck Rogers type figure, a man lost in the world around him. That gives a great opportunity for exposition. The trouble is finding the right villain, and if the follow Ultimates then at first it will by Hank Pym because he beats and tries to murder his wife.... more... - RAPatton
But isn't the "man out of his time" idea the story of the Cap movie? - Jason P
I loved The Ultimates. That was my first foray back into comics after many years away. I should re-read it. - Derrick
there have been MANY Caps, IIRC. - Big Joe Silence
Jason, the cap movie happens in the 1940s and at the end his sacrifice leads to the man out of time (he's frozen in the arctic, the Avengers should start with finding his body in the ice as I understand it) - RAPatton
Even the movie is titled of "Captain America the First Avenger" - Utku Vardar
From what I've heard Howard Stark was a founder of SHIELD and worked on the Super Soldier project. The Super Soldier project is used in the Ultimate timeline to explain Hulk and almost everything else. I would guess, Chris that Howard collected the SHIELD after they thought Cap was dead (in Iron Man 2, Cap's body hasn't been found yet). Traditionally, Cap ends up riding a super V-2 to disable it and it crashes in the arctic, everyone assumes he's dead. - RAPatton
So no one is mentioning that Captain America is...err, was...The Human Torch? I'm interested to see how Chris Evans changes up since I thought he did a pretty good Johnny Storm. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Good point, CAJ. I imagine if the Fantastic Four ever teamed up with The Avengers, they'd re-cast Johnny Storm. Actually, maybe they'd re-cast the entire Fantastic Four team. Those movies were a hot mess. - Derrick
The Film rights for the Fantastic Four and X-Men are owned by Fox, so no crossover,BUT there is a WWII era human torch that I'm certain they'll use to make a inside joke about Evans having been the torch - RAPatton
I like Chris Evans as Cap. His part in SUNSHINE solidified him as a leader of men. - Steven Perez
Oh, and just wait if they get Nathan Fillion as Hank Pym. - Steven Perez
Ooh, I can totally see Nathan Fillion as Dr. Pym. What I hope is that they don't start throwing a grab back of characters against the movie wall to see which sticks enough to make money. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Oy. Cap costume looks really bad. - David Rothman (☤)
If it doesn't have Hawkeye, I won't be seeing it. - Steele Lawman

Originally, Avatar ended with the humans nuking Pandora from orbit and strip mining the lifeless planet. It didn't test well though.
Just kidding ;). Something similar happened with Brazil though: "Universal executives thought the ending tested poorly, and Universal chairman Sid Sheinberg insisted on dramatically re-editing the film to give it a happy ending, a decision that Gilliam resisted vigorously." - - Paul Buchheit
Suicidal thoughts x 1000! :P - AJ Batac
Brazil happy ending was US-only. - Tim Tyler
Huh, didn't know that it had a happy ending. The tape I saw didn't. - Daniel Dulitz
Is that a happy or "happy" ending? I saw an ambiguous ending. - ⓞnor from Android
Might have made the story more interesting. :) - mikepk
wouldn't have taken much to make the story more interesting. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
For what it's worth, Cameron's scriptment covered that plot hole. Corporations in space are banned from using weapons of mass destruction. Also, Pandora threatened humans with a civilization ending virus if they ever returned to Pandora. - Kevin Fischer
Another explanation could be simple logistics. It takes 5 years to get there, they obviously didn't bring a whole lot of orbital weaponry because they didn't expect the natives to put up such a fight. They had to use the shuttle to even deliver conventional bombs. Perhaps they could have come back in a later iteration with orbital weapons, but on such a long expensive journey, you... more... - Ray Cromwell
