GIllmor Gang, recording live today 1pm PT participate at
hi everyone. hope your Good Friday is indeed a good one! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Does Good Friday have something to do w/Lent? Or are they completely unrelated? - J.C. Bouvier
lent ends on Easter Sunday - Kevin Marks
Right, boulder gets rolled, and then it's a I remember... - J.C. Bouvier
it's all a little fuzzy for me - Tina Chase Gillmor
Oh no, Catechism class! - Tom Guarriello
starting to get everyone up on Skype - Tina Chase Gillmor
...and don't forget.... it's still Passover - Tina Chase Gillmor
Has it started? - Ian Waring
and today Steve is going to crab about the fact that I changed his camera position. I told him i will put it back where it was if he really doesn't like it after today - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm in Malta today, so my brain and my watch are out of sync... - Ian Waring
I was tweeting scripture at the pope earlier - Kevin Marks
ian - not yet - Keith Teare
let me know if you need the Jewish Catholic to add some value to your Easter discussion (me) - Charlie Isaacs
That's serious Catechism class, Kevin! Be careful, he's a Jesuit! - Tom Guarriello
I love that test card, takes me back to my childhood when you waited for TV to start with bated breath! - SImonB
Thank you Keith. Religious lot doing Good Friday marches into Church here... - Ian Waring
I see Tina's forehead :) - Charlie Isaacs
Now that's what Keith calls music - Kevin Marks
Yay! Full crew, but watch out for that Bing traitor! - Ian Waring
Makes sense to FB but does it make sense to users? - Tom Guarriello
I have a Google app on iOS - Kevin Marks
and on android, actually - Kevin Marks
Is this the preparation towards the Facebook Mobile - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Facebook needs to leverage its current user base to expand into more businesses that will diversify its revenue streams. Social platforms have a limited potential for generating revenue and could lose its users to a new app or platform in the future. - Rob Greenlee
Google Voice is now annoying me by telling me every time someone adds me to a circle. Is that in an effort to get me to delete the Voice app from my phone? Or a desperate attempt to get me to hit + pages? Or both? - J.C. Bouvier
WhatsApp, Instagram and other features - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'm totally mad a Steve right now. He is refusing to look at the upper part of his screen. I just know I'm going to be repositioning the camera back where it was - Tina Chase Gillmor
Borthwick's thing on homescreen icons may have made zuck think about it - Kevin Marks
FB needs must be where the younger people is: on the mobile - Carlos Cruz
If the Amazon Mobile is true than Zuckerberg will want a piece of the action - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Chromebox i5 cant keep up with HD live stream - switched to quad i7 Mac (makes big difference) - clive boulton
But it's all "person-centric"... that's Tantek's point - Darius Dunlap
it is for one to one; for one to many it's subtler - Kevin Marks
Separate apps work well, but Google's separate apps didn't work well at all, either for the user or behind the scenes. They have to break the silos first with Hangouts before they do anything else. - Kevin Bryan
but if done right, navigating that is also made easier. At least, the potential is there. - Darius Dunlap
I'm more with Kevin. If you go user-centric then you have an explosion of complexity. Users seem comfortable with that at the app level. (2 years ago I wouldn't have agreed...) - Ian McGee
Mobile Apps are the new TV Channels - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Jillian York was interesting on this: - Kevin Marks
Google's problem: Everyone was on Google, but nobody could see each other in chat. By Google unifying under Hangouts (and Google+), at least people can find each other now across Google services. - Kevin Bryan
Kevin's point about modalities of communication is very valid, but I'd say apps are artificial constructs, and the fragmentation they create is painful. - SImonB
Apps, Channels, Text vs. Voice.. whatever. The important questions is "how do I best reach this person", and present that in a user-centric set of choices. - Darius Dunlap
I am not convinced people (consumers) love apps, I think corporates love apps! They're a strong channel,and are rapidly becoming brand identity. But that doesn't help consumers. - SImonB
Microsoft tried with Windows Phone to create app integrated "People Hubs" that pulled the data from a variety of apps into one user experience. They are now shutting that down with WP 8.1. - Rob Greenlee
The problem with unbundling Facebook's Services is that you eventually will have Facebook Lite - Moe Glitz from iPhone
wow, all-star cast today - Charlie Isaacs
Jennifer Ehle summed it up: "I know nothing of Facebook. Never been there. I've seen a page of it and it gives me that Microsoft sleepy feeling in my brain." - Kevin Marks
Many Apps & Devices. One User Data Profile - clive boulton
Does anyone else use the "New YouTube video" notifications feature in their notifications bar? I've had it for a long time. Very useful. - Kevin Bryan
interesting question is "why" the Windows Phone idea that's similar is going away. - Darius Dunlap
That it IS going away doesn't really say much. Microsoft has a long history of doing amazing things that for one reason or another never catch on. - Darius Dunlap
Google's Services have always been separate, which is why their Apps are easy to sell separate. Facebook is another thing. If the Facebook Wall becomes a separate App, will the Facebook Wall come crumbling down - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Interesting conversation about "user app churn" behavior on this week's episode of The Prompt - Tom Guarriello
Apps are oriented to user needs, so I think they will stay for long (unless there is a real working assistant like siri that launch apps/services). On the other hand, apps could use backend services - an unified ID could be a good example). - Carlos Cruz
Most mobile users don't really use that many apps on a regular basis. It is like what happened with the web. Early on people visited a lot of different websites, then pulled back to just a few. Same is happening with Apps now. - Rob Greenlee
the diversification of apps has to be well beyond social networks apps directly.. but apps that take advantage of the social network.. like health apps.. etc. - Michael Roberts
camlistore/ use case? - clive boulton
++ Michael Roberts - Darius Dunlap
Paper is the wall as a separate app, Moe - Kevin Marks
just played with a Galaxy S 5, it's awesome - Da
Think Paper will eventually fold Kevin, they should have brought Flipboard - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Enterprise wants to unbundle identity from apps, consumers don't. - clive boulton
Moe: I agree - Keith Teare
missing John Taschek's enterprisey pov - clive boulton
@Moe, @Keith - Paper is by far the better experience, I see it as the iPhone of Facebook apps, where the stock Facebook app is more the Android volume user play...Paper is for people w/a higher gross income...Facebook is for the rest of their users. - J.C. Bouvier
should I talk about fragmentions? - Kevin Marks
give it a try Kevin - Tina Chase Gillmor
Could be true J.C. But Facebook will need to sell it hard. Perhaps inside a Facebook Mobile it will gain in popularity - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Andreessen blocked me on Twitter - Kevin Marks
Paper is facing the same challenge as Medium, which I don't think will ever be large - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Whoa, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
And how were those people starting that company supporting themselves. - Darius Dunlap
my response to that thread was to link this old post: - Kevin Marks
I am someone who has a few bootstrapped startups and I believe you can do a startup without spending a bunch of money, it takes money to get visibility though - Chris Hale
Don't hate on twinkies Steve - Chris Hale
back to the drawing board with the camera placement. Honestly, it's just not right and it's my fault. will try again - Tina Chase Gillmor
There is some stuff that used to be VERY hard, but which has now become free to experiment, and inexpensive to scale. - Darius Dunlap
Agree with Darius - Chris Hale
Well Steve's put his finger on it: innovative in the consumer space. There's way too much variations on the same old social media theme, why fund that unless there's proven revenue? - SImonB
Yep, SimonB, and nobody seems to have confidence that they can pick winners... so they wait. They sit out until there is evidence. - Darius Dunlap
Can Danny talk about Google's pay per click declines on the Desktop and Yahoo's plan to be the default Search player on the iPhone - Moe Glitz from iPhone
blocking often just too much flow :) - clive boulton
Windows is dead zzzz - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I agree that B2B will be more difficult to address to kickstarter entrepreneurs. - Carlos Cruz
Also, the end market is fundamentally more conservative... so Breakouts take a LONG time to ramp up. - Darius Dunlap
Moe, It is hard to count Windows out completely in the mobile/tablet and PC space. Clearly, MS is still an OS that a billion of people still use today. - Rob Greenlee
@Keith, do you ahve an example of a kick tag in Instagram? That's an @ symbol for Twitter or some other for say Facebook? - J.C. Bouvier
thanks Steve / thanks Dan / thanks Semil -- balancing enterprisy pov - clive boulton
Apparently Hookers are using AirBnb for Services in some cities - Moe Glitz from iPhone
"lets make our own startup with Hookers and Blow" - Kevin Marks
I wonder what the enterprise developer program growth is like... the companies building apps for internal-only use... I've seen some very interesting stuff, but I wonder if it's really a "thing" yet. - Darius Dunlap
Hell of a branding proposition, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
"carburetors not ferraris" -- now I get it! - clive boulton
Gnip, Datasift, Radian6 Bing - Kevin Marks
with GNIP Twitter had partial control before and now they have complete control - Charlie Isaacs
Radian6 = Saleforce yah? - J.C. Bouvier
yes - Kevin Marks
it's also way to collect more revenue -- GNIP makes money - Charlie Isaacs
yeah, Charlie Isaacs, I think that's what Kevin was saying... Twitter already has the firehose, but these are people who have experience turning that into useful and profitable products. - Darius Dunlap
You can't trust anything coming out of Twitter unless you go directly to the firehose yourself or go to GNIP and get it from them, and Twitter severely limits the number of vendors who can get to the firehose - Charlie Isaacs
Will Twitter work with Creative Agencies, unlike Google which uses them - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Enterprise can't do "Hookers and Blow" or is that where the puck is? - clive boulton
Enterprise is ALL about "hookers and Blow". - Darius Dunlap
Oh, and Golf. - Darius Dunlap
Show name "slightly unnatural acts"? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Isn't that an Oracle thing? - Kevin Marks
better than what clive just said Tina :) - Charlie Isaacs
Lol. Tina - Darius Dunlap
Google should buy Datasift and perhaps they can build a Fire Engine - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Between "hookers and blow" and "slightly unnatural acts" it may be time to re-rate the show.... - Ian McGee
I missed how "hookers and blow" happened. Geez, when I'm not looking... - Tina Chase Gillmor
Gillmor GangBang - Moe Glitz from iPhone
now you're talking -- connected hardware! - Charlie Isaacs
Larry Ellison makes sure no hookers and blow at big O. - clive boulton
connected hardware I agree - Michael Roberts
"When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go downtown" - Kevin Marks
Stuff people are noodling on. That's how everything interesting starts. - Darius Dunlap
wearables - Da
this friendfeed thing is turning into pornchat or whatever that thing was that I caught my son on the other day - Charlie Isaacs
I'm waiting for the whole space around connect hardware apps.. that bring intelligence to consumers. - Michael Roberts
Wait, are we talking about "hookers and blow" again?? - Tom Guarriello
Ha ha. - J.C. Bouvier
I think home automation and seemless authentication are spaces that are where a lot of interesting things are happening - Chris Hale
I'm quoting Petula Clark lyrics - Kevin Marks
"The lights are much brighter there You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares, and go ...." - Tina Chase Gillmor
Some of us have those lyrics embedded in our unconscious... - Tom Guarriello
Wearables and Connectables are the future. Web 3.0 is here - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Ive been noodling on my own home automation platform and have had pretty good success with getting everything connected and now I am able to control it via voice - Chris Hale
When you're alone and life is making you lonely You can always go, downtown - Charlie Isaacs
another area is the sharing economy.. I wonder if there will be an amazon for sharing stuff.. the big 'rent' it. - Michael Roberts
Sing Kevin - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Sunday delivery by Amazon, too. Plus, they now send me texts when things get delivered. - Tom Guarriello
we were really surprised to get a package at 9:50pm - Tina Chase Gillmor
you don't want me singing Petula Clark. Pink Floyd maybe - Kevin Marks
My neighbor's angry at me because I shot down his delivery drone down and screwed up his wife's birthday gift - Charlie Isaacs
So ya, think, might like to... goto the show! - Darius Dunlap
Kevin.... I think you should actually sing on the show... so when I cut to you, please go for it! - Tina Chase Gillmor
my singing is bset kept in private - Kevin Marks
Brilliant Idea. Employ handicapped people as drone drivers! - Chris Hale
I've got all the Floyd lyrics right here, in case you need support. ;-) - Darius Dunlap
thats a philanthropic idea where everyone wins - Chris Hale
hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way - Kevin Marks
why deliver when can 3D print - Da
we could make a Gillmor Gang Choir - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'd love to see gillmor gang bring someone in from beyond silicon valley.. like India.. or South Africa.. that might be good check for the Silicon Valley centric thinking.. - Michael Roberts
I used to code that in html - Tina Chase Gillmor
Drones should be use for the good things and not for war! - Carlos Cruz
way back when - Tina Chase Gillmor
Medium sor of does this... - Darius Dunlap
I like that a lot - Tina Chase Gillmor
"sort of" - Darius Dunlap
pretty awesome that the SpaceX Falcon9 lifted off a while ago - Charlie Isaacs
I was visiting Instructables yesterday - they have some insane 3D printers - Kevin Marks
that's an excellent idea, kevin - Tom Guarriello
Can Kevin sing "The Great Gig In The Sky" - Moe Glitz from iPhone
but this new thing is so much more interesting... connecting across systems. - Darius Dunlap
No, Moe - Kevin Marks
I can do Pulp's Common People - Kevin Marks
we all know your code - Michael Roberts
android can keep screen on if plugged in - Kevin Marks
yes it is, steve - Tom Guarriello
Yep. It'll only turn off when you click the button, or flip the smart cover shut - Darius Dunlap
That's why I wasn't in the chatroom; I was watching on iPad. - Francine Hardaway
Ustream has a chat available but it doesn't store the chats... and that's a problem - Tina Chase Gillmor is COOL - Nir Ben Yona
i use Screen On app to keep my screen on - Da
has anyone done an analysis of how many apps people can keep up with... kinda like the 150 friends.. limit. - Michael Roberts
remove the lock screen on iOS will decrease the level of data encryption on the device - Carlos Cruz
i'm gonna get a different tripod that is more flexible - Tina Chase Gillmor
Carburetors don't have theme music, Ferraris do? - clive boulton
Could we please get off FF? - Francine Hardaway
@Francine Hardaway Agreed! FriendFeed is indeed dead. When can we bury the casket and move on to something new? - Kevin Bryan
francine, please give me an alternative - Tina Chase Gillmor
yammer for GIllmor Gang? - Francine Hardaway
I love IFTTT - Francine Hardaway
ifttt rocks - Charlie Isaacs
doesn't save the chat to a page - Tina Chase Gillmor
What about IRC, the olf favorite - Francine Hardaway
I think steve is totally right.. re: notifications. he's been making the same point for a while. - Michael Roberts
it's a sunshade - Kevin Marks
oh hai! you're still here! - Laura Norvig
IRC is nice - Kevin Marks
IRC would be good. Google+ page would be nice too. - Kevin Bryan
Chatter FTW :) and it's connected to IFTTT - Charlie Isaacs
IRC and surrounding tools can do all that, but it's still prettty geeky and difficult to get started. - Darius Dunlap
should I write a web app for gilmor gang to help deal with chat? - Chris Hale
yes Chris - Francine Hardaway
FF still better than G+ chat (UI too verbose) - clive boulton
Chris Hale please talk to me - Tina Chase Gillmor
I remember all of that - Francine Hardaway
lots of other podcasts use irc, but it's a PITA - Tom Guarriello
OK, somebody write an app for us - Francine Hardaway
Francine I think IRC is really good for techs.. but non-techs.. what else exists? - Michael Roberts
Samsung Gear Fit notifications look pretty cool - Da

FireChat - Kevin Marks
it used to work great when the chat was embedded right next to the video. - Laura Norvig
What's the limit for a What'sApp group? - Francine Hardaway

Ok, I'll tell bad jokes while you're stalling for time. +Kevin, What do you get if you cross a woodpecker with a carrier pigeon? A bird who knocks before delivering its message. - Charlie Isaacs
Heartbleed Explaination - - Murray Macdonald
lovely NSA - clive boulton
This is too depressing - Francine Hardaway
I love that Kevin's shirt matches his umbrella hat - Charlie Isaacs
It's very exploitable - there was a nice demo that connected to and grabbed passwords. - Simon Tennant
NSA should share exploits, not exploit them - clive boulton
everyone seeing the stream fine? - Tina Chase Gillmor

Looks great to me. - Murray Macdonald

I'm sure Twitter has been listening to the Gang. We've been talking about the importance of notifications for some time now. Hopefully that will handle the feature carefully - Tina Chase Gillmor
Twitter user statistics: Most People On Twitter Don't Actually Tweet - Nir Ben Yona
Google+ is easier to filter via default circle and circle notifcations - clive boulton
Will be interesting to see if people still stick with FB after all the newstream changes going on - christina sponselli
Hiya - is it just me - video very intermittent - heard 30 secs of Kevin Marks only so far... - Ian Waring
If it defaults to who I follow, that's 1600 people - Francine Hardaway
That's more people than I want to be notified about - Francine Hardaway
I'm hearing everything Ian - Charlie Isaacs
Stream seems strong here on our end, Ian - Tina Chase Gillmor
I don't see settings for mobile notifications on the web, just email - Kevin Marks
FB social graph is too social. I want information. Not data from someone I went to school with. - clive boulton
Thank you - nought here. Will trying switching it off and on again (tip of the hat to the IT Crowd) - Ian Waring
I didn't know Robert had a normal world :=-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I hardly ever use Twitter's standard interface on the Web, I use Tweetdeck. Mostly use Twitter on iPad and iPhone. - Alex de Soto
Threat was enough - i'm getting Scoble loud and clear now - Ian Waring
nobody tell Robert there's a guy behind him photobombing - Charlie Isaacs
Same here, I use Twitter plenty, but I never use the website. - Michael Mahemoff
Wrote this a long time ago about how Twitter will have challenges monetizing ... - Chien-Yu Lin
mobile expects me to add a phone number - Kevin Marks
kevin - can you post the link - Keith Teare
nice woodpecker, Kevin! - Tom Guarriello
the link in just goes to settings - Kevin Marks
One way to control noise for Twitter is to promote the ability for tracking back to root sources and filtering away all "met too" posts that do not include others you follow. That is, no one needs 70 people pointing back to the same ABC story - but I do want to see what the people I follow comment on it. - Chien-Yu Lin
@Keith, totally w/you...about her rolodex... - J.C. Bouvier
She can play the piano during board cocktail hours. - Alex de Soto
Mozilla ... I know that half The Board resigned, but did any rank and file resign? - Chien-Yu Lin
Here's what Marc Benioff tweeted about Dropbox: "Zuckerberg is wondering if he should buy Dropbox for $30B as we watches @drewhouston announce a messaging service" - Nir Ben Yona
She's for a sure a smart woman who was simply was miscast in a fugly White House...and I'm not apologist btw...and she wouldn't be on any list of board members of any length that I would make...but I can't imagine she's dead weight. - J.C. Bouvier
It sends wrong signals, but he can't lead the company if the employees hate him - Francine Hardaway
you're crazy, there's no such thing "his employees" in mozilla @robert - flyinthesoup
+1 Francine - Tom Guarriello
Eich resigned - Kevin Marks
Public opinion matters when you are a leader. If your troops won't follow, regardless of the reason, you're unable to lead. - Murray Macdonald
Chien: the troops threatened to quit with a letter to the board. - Robert Scoble
Marc Benioff went on to tweet: Amazing new @carouselapp and Harmony from @drewhouston demonstrates how far behind Apple's photo and file apps are! - clive boulton
that's totally right Murray - Tina Chase Gillmor
Had a Twitter experience that I wanted to bottle a couple of weeks ago - a conversation between a few folks talking around a virtual water cooler re: Facebook and Oculus. I'd love a newspaper made out of slithers like that. - Ian Waring
The CEO carries the vision for the company. He's the leader. Not effective. - Francine Hardaway
thats what storify is for - Kevin Marks
"troops" ? stop militarizing your thoughts. you're taking the wrong model - flyinthesoup
Storify... off looking - thanks - Ian Waring
we don't need no CEO for a new generation community based company. - flyinthesoup
The dangerous precedent that he would have set had he remained would not be about his leadership skills, but rather what message he could have create in right-to-work states where employees effective have no right to work. If minorities think that it is difficult to work in an environment such as California - which is very liberal - imagine a CEO of a company in a Red State. - Chien-Yu Lin
Roberts right, he didn't want to handle the situation - clive boulton
i don't take Eich as a leader either, he's a very deep nerd - flyinthesoup
Leadership principles were pioneered by military. Ever read Sun Tzu? - Murray Macdonald
he's a tech leader. he and Mitchell have been a good team - Kevin Marks
Scoble: Thanks - Chien-Yu Lin
+100 @Storify, use it all the time... - J.C. Bouvier
So is Eich on the spectrum? - Francine Hardaway
Go to Glassdoor. There are a lot of horrible leaders (as per their employees opinions and ratings), but Wall Street loves them and it is a bad economy for a lot of companies, industries. - Chien-Yu Lin
Francine: I don't know that for a fact but I would not be shocked. - Robert Scoble
Bill Gates is often described as having Aspergers. He demonstrates many symptoms. - Murray Macdonald
Carly Fiorina at HP comes to mind.... - Alex de Soto
Murray: yes. - Robert Scoble
My son has Aspergers. He's amazingly smart, just eccentric. - Murray Macdonald
Bill has never admitted that. - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina: no, he isn't as far along the spectrum as Bram Cohen. - Robert Scoble
Does anyone know if Mailbox supports Exchange yet? - J.C. Bouvier
Most adults with Aspergers are un-diagnosed. There's no blood-test. It's a subjective diagnosis. - Murray Macdonald
@Semil, what dou you mean about the transition from platform to services ? - flyinthesoup
A classmate of my daughter's is on the autism spectrum. She says he's one of the smartest people she knows. There are a ton of things that freak him out though but even so, he has made great strides over the years being connected to other students. All the kids are very protective of him. It has been a great experience for all - Tina Chase Gillmor
12 million downloads for Office for iPad ... - Chien-Yu Lin
How about the high-frequency trading revelations ala Flash Boys? Wall St. High Frequency Traders are scamming clients by having a few milliseconds lead time to trade against them. The exchanges are selling them the upstream access. - Murray Macdonald
file sharing will disappear as paper will one day - flyinthesoup
Dan's chin keeps getting closer to the bottom of the screen ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
we're printing more paper than ever before - Ludwig Ederle
"Microsoft’s top lawyer on Thursday said the company’s cloud computing services had met Europe’s stringent data protection rules — the only company so far to receive such approval — and he used the news as a way to woo potential new customers." - NYT - Alex de Soto
Does OneNote have a web clipper like Evernote? - Tom Guarriello
wait till you start eating paper... - flyinthesoup
at macdonalds you already do... - flyinthesoup
I like Evernote more than DropBox - Francine Hardaway
I placed my OneDrive folder in a DropBox folder for easier access across apps. - Alex de Soto
I like google drive - Kevin Marks
Both Evernote and Dropbox are now essential for me - Tom Guarriello
what other product or company could go from 0 to millions of new sign-ups in a few days... the Office for iPad strategy was a good move - Charlie Isaacs
Murray, I'm reading that book now - Francine Hardaway
Stability vs. Innovation - Chien-Yu Lin
Deconstructed gets identity out of the way, with Dropbox be killer - clive boulton
Love Evernote but it has splintered its attention into so many apps! - Alex de Soto
Friend just turned me onto - 50GB free...nice interface...and w/MediaFire now offering 1TB for $25/year...DropBox needs to up their free plan. - J.C. Bouvier
Microsoft vs. "Microsoft Killers"; Apple vs. Android. Outside of tech folks, what is more important? - Chien-Yu Lin
As a customer facing imaging application we have to support a bunch of different cloud sources. FB, Flickr, PhotoBucket, Dropbox, Box, Google, Sky Drive, Instagram, Piccasa, etc... - Murray Macdonald

Xioami have a good photo sharing service where you don't need to keep all your pics on the handset - just the latest ones, and the rest are accessible anywhere - Ian Waring
really anywhere? or just using their devices? - Kevin Marks
Using their service, which I think is on their devices. - Ian Waring
Area they monetise on mobile and web - given their hardware is an "at cost" lead... - Ian Waring
How much of mobile is stunted by ceiling established by standard cell phone components? Wifi, location, accelerometer, speaker, phone. - Chien-Yu Lin
Apps exist in a world governed by the web - Francine Hardaway
BTW, Fred Wilson thinks we're now in the blockchain era. Bitcoin - Francine Hardaway
Apps crossing over mobile web ramps fragmentation headaches in enterprise - clive boulton
newsreaders include twiitter + facebook - Kevin Marks
adn email - Kevin Marks

all those are used to end links around - Kevin Marks
The Amazon apps don't make use of "the Web?" - Alex de Soto
Kevin - the nerve of people playing basketball in the park of all places! - Tina Chase Gillmor
secret posts are on the web - Kevin Marks
PhoneGap makes web apps into app apps. Android Intents allow deep linking between apps. - Murray Macdonald
Looks to me like Secret's DAUs have fallen off sharply since SXSW... - J.C. Bouvier
... and RESTful APIs. - Rob Underwood
HTTP lives long in part because of all the system to system interfaces built of HTTP using RESTful APIs - Rob Underwood
Just gotta say that one of the hottest things right now is the McIlhenny Co. from Avery Island, Louisiana. I know Fred Wilson agrees with me. - Frank Paynter
did you read Sinofsky? Basically saying that he's gald to be free of the office strategy tax - Kevin Marks
bitcoin doesn't need an app to transact inside an iOS app though, like an API to a payment gateway right... - J.C. Bouvier
so no more webapps being invested in, does that mean convergence of mobile and desktop OSes - David Boursin
Akka.js seems poised to extend reactive enterprise notifications into mobile apps. - clive boulton

no one has mentioned that Google Glass will go on general sale next week. Apparently no one cares ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
camera + location are web accesible - Kevin Marks
@Tina, right? - J.C. Bouvier
PhoneGap does all that in a hybrid browser. Beacons and other hardware devices are supported through plug-ins. - Murray Macdonald
and what about Robert's preview of new drones? - Tina Chase Gillmor ;) - clive boulton
Drones are old stuff, and most people who want Glass have it:-) @tina - Francine Hardaway
Tina: oh, cruddy, gotta go get my drone. It's in the car. - Robert Scoble
I think Robert's blue shirt is very slimming! - Frank Paynter
I will go get it. I'll be back in a few minutes. - Robert Scoble
Robert is losing weight - Francine Hardaway
yes, agree with Murray -- can leverage a hybrid approach - Charlie Isaacs
I thought he was. I need to pick his brain for beauty secrets. - Frank Paynter
lo carb diet Frank - Francine Hardaway
Just in: Amazon Preparing to Release Smartphone - Nir Ben Yona
Exactly, enterprise won't route notifications via Appledroid - clive boulton
My wife stole my keys. No drone. - Robert Scoble
So my all-chips-all-the-time diet is counter-productive, I guess. - Frank Paynter
Steve jobs invented web applications? LOL. - Murray Macdonald
Francine... it will be interesting to see if that is true about Glass. I might expect so. I'm surprised they didn't drop the price - Tina Chase Gillmor
I wish Dan Farber would tilt his camera down. - Robert Scoble
Yeah, I have lost weight. Drinking a lot less and trying to stay away from carbs. - Robert Scoble
and then Google forked Webkit - Ian Waring
Steve wanted to be like Clint Eastwood and interview Robert's chair - Charlie Isaacs
Robert, will Maryam show me the drone then? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Come on over and we'll fly! :-) - Robert Scoble

I am incredibly close to a Class A "No Fly Zone" for drones but that Phantom 2 Vision+ looks really cool. - Alex de Soto
What is the best fitness tracker today? Which has the most sensors? - Murray Macdonald
They'll start giving glass away when they start to monetize the cloud to the extent that they charge us G+ "customers" for our storage. - Frank Paynter
I've done a course on Google Fusion Tables - and used all my nutrition data and weight i've filled in daily for 12 years now in it. Putting less food in your mouth helps - and carbs is a big factor, much bigger than I expected. - Ian Waring
I lose consistently when 2/3 my carbs of what i'm consuming this year! - Ian Waring
BTW, Semil is a great voice to have in this discussion. I hope he's on the show more. - Rob Underwood
Sinofsky largely moved MS off Win 32 and onto http based interfaces - Ian Waring
+1 Rob - Frank Paynter

True, MVP doesn't work well for mobile - Michael Mahemoff
This point that Keith makes week after week is very important, imo. - Tom Guarriello
... is this going to lead to another music discussion. old music vs. new music? - Rob Underwood
Next iPhone will be encased in Liquid Metal. No more milled Alluminium - Ian Waring
and Sapphire screen - Ian Waring
Only if there's a decent tuba part in the new music. - Frank Paynter
I used QUip yesterday. Pretty good:-) - Francine Hardaway
I recommended it to a friend yesterday - Ian Waring
I think this is why Larry has taken up this moonshot idea, Keith. Scale innovation is not what the market is about. - Tom Guarriello
iOS is a 45, Android the album? - Kevin Marks
Semil's prescient, none downloadable mobile apps emerging. Ties with Keith's broken lean startup. - clive boulton
Sinofsky moved MS off of .NET and back onto Win 32. I don't know where you got the idea that he moved it to http based interfaces. That is NOT true in Windows for the most part, except in the tiles up front that most people don't really like that much. - Robert Scoble
Quip that is - though I think Keith was right last year. California seems to ignore the effect of installed bases of lethagic (to change) markets - Ian Waring
Carousal - Kevin Marks
Anyone going to the smart fabrics show on the 23rd? - Murray Macdonald
Carousel reminds us all that Mad Men is coming back on Sunday!! - Tom Guarriello

Insert obligatory, "size matters" remarks here... - Tom Guarriello
Nexus 5 - Francine Hardaway
the texting problem is on Apple's end - Kevin Marks
I'll buy it off you Francine. :) - Murray Macdonald
Self cannibalization by Apple once again... - Tom Guarriello
I have to keep it Murray until Apple releases iPhone 6 - Francine Hardaway
Looking back as far as 2005, Sinofsky was throwing http APIs to Sharepoint and the whole Office Suite - thought this continued into Windows 8... - Ian Waring
How about a bigger battery? - Charlie Isaacs
Oh, that's another thing about the Nexus 5 that I don't like: 1/2 day of battery life - Francine Hardaway
you all know it's not the size, it's what you do with it that matters, right? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Android fragmentation addressed via Google play API services - clive boulton
Android fragments help to reduce recoding. Using a browser (or hybrid app) you can ignore screen size if you practice responsive design. - Murray Macdonald
I love it when Tina talks about batteries like that - Charlie Isaacs
somehow I can only say silly things today :-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have solved the battery problems in my life. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie. Mophie.

Interesting thing is that Amazon Fire has YouTube and looks like a carbon copy of Android TV screen shots - Ian Waring
I have a Mophie - Francine Hardaway
I use a Mophie, it almost gets me to the end of the day now - Charlie Isaacs
Anybody on this stream score a WWDC ticket? - Tom Guarriello
didn't try - Kevin Marks
Instead of a Mophie, wouldn't life just be better if you could remove / replace the battery on an iPhone, with spare batteries hanging around? - Chien-Yu Lin
Mophiestopheles!!! - Alex de Soto
3D smartphone giveaway at Google I/O? - clive boulton
Title of the show: "My Heartbleeds for the NSA" - Charlie Isaacs
yes +Chien what a novel concept - Charlie Isaacs
Some of the Boston Robotics Mule replacements sound like a lawnmower too - not good in a conflict theatre - Ian Waring
Take the money and run? - Alex de Soto
Semil, Please return to the show soon. - Rob Underwood
Yes, we like Semil - Francine Hardaway
+1 Semil - Alex de Soto
+1 Semil - Tom Guarriello
No Keith, I live with the left - Francine Hardaway

Gillmor Gang: Blank Stairs -
The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Dan Farber, John Taschek, Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — celebrated Office for iPad's 12 million in sales and who knows in real traction i.e. subscriptions. The Amazon Fire debuted to shouts of thin and expensive, but surely what we need is a builtin HDMI switcher.

Has anyone found a video replay of the Amazon announcement? I looked and couldn't find one... - J.C. Bouvier
I am going to use it as a computer monitor. When coding I want desktop real-estate. - Murray Macdonald
Except that Netflix doesn't own most of their own content and they can't go licensing it to Amazon - Ankush Narula
YouTube should have been Netflix, but Google fucked up by only using it as just another Advertising Channel. - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Phillip DeFranco - Tom Guarriello
yah, that's him. - J.C. Bouvier
yah, he's a clown. - J.C. Bouvier
Letterman's quitting because he already had heart surgery - Francine Hardaway
I've known him for years. He's a lot smarter than he looks on YT - Tom Guarriello
I consult for a company that licenses a huge catalog of content to Netflix - all of this lack of consolidation is driven by content licensing revenue - Ankush Narula
I have Netflix but no Apple TV. Usually watch it over ChromeCast. NetFlix is somewhat limited in Canada. I often have to watch it on my PC so that I can use Hola to access US content. - Murray Macdonald
Is that right Tom? I've always thought he was smart, but that his delivery/celebrity was a bit clownish...I wish him all the success in the world...which apparently he's had a fair share of... - J.C. Bouvier
Of course it's a tech conversation. I have AppleTV, Chromecast, and Netflix. Also I have Prime, so I've got Amazon instant video. Do I need an Amazon box? And if so, which TV will I put it on? (First world problem) - Francine Hardaway
yes, Tom. Philip DeFranco. he's the guy - Tina Chase Gillmor
@francine - you don't need an amazon box because you can AirPlay Amazon from your iPad - Ankush Narula
Yes, JC, he's created this persona that's made him a very big star in the new world - Tom Guarriello
That's what I thought, Ankush. I have too many ways to watch Netflix now, and I can either Airplay or Chromecast Amazon to any TV I already have - Francine Hardaway
Zuckerberg may want to get into this game and acquire Roku - Moe Glitz from iPhone
OK I walked into the studio and sat down for the show straight off the plane. No bathroom break and no water. Help!!! - Tina Chase Gillmor
the hardware and content ecosystems are a's like apple circa 1995, too many products w/out enough focus...and the consumer loses... - J.C. Bouvier
Tina: I need a bathroom break too! Hah. Then I head to Napa. Gotta drop off at 2:30. - Robert Scoble
The content is beginning to become available, but sorting it out and deciding the best place to find a particular show is the challenge currently. I am confident that someone will disrupt this mess and figure it out. - Thomas Rector
In Philly we have Comcast Xfinity (X1) with TV Go and TV Remote apps for iPhone and iPad. - Alex de Soto
Moe: I was just thinking about it the other day. Facebook will probably have to jump in. - Nir Ben Yona

Yup! - Robert Scoble
Have fun and say Hi from me. But hang here until the last meinute please - Tina Chase Gillmor
Re Comcast X1, I have it and the menus are circa 1985. Search is slow and usually doesn't work. On Demand is pretty impressive, but sometimes goes offline. Its not fully formed yet. - Thomas Rector
There's also a new Comcast service called "X1 DVR with cloud technology" which is not yet available in my area. - Alex de Soto
HTML apps.can run on ChromeCast - Murray Macdonald
Robert: you should go here - Nir Ben Yona
Right - but the content you want from them is on Netflix... - J.C. Bouvier
You can download Xfinity on Demand shows to your iPad (using TV Go) but selection is limited. - Alex de Soto
X1 has its own logon (similar to HBO go) so you can watch On Demand show anytime, anywhere. - Thomas Rector
DirecTV Genie Go allows you to download anything you record. You have to be on the network while you download, but you don't need an Internet Connection when you want to watch it. - John Taschek
Good for local Drugs Deals - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'd follow Amazon drones around and collect the booty. - Murray Macdonald
Connect your drones to your CRM system: - John Taschek
there is a company who is about to do drone delivery locally in the Mission in SF from drugs stores, I think - Tina Chase Gillmor
i want one anyway. - Tina Chase Gillmor
+1 Taschek! CRM exterminator drones! - Tom Guarriello
Robert - What if Amazon were to introduced what Zuckerberg has envisioned in the use of solar panels on drones - Darren James

Business Insider said between all the apps they did 12m downloads... - J.C. Bouvier
Scoble's recent Quip interview - Nir Ben Yona
we used it a long time ago. Might use it for dev notes for new show - Tina Chase Gillmor
Interesting: eBay Now Allows Virtual Currency Sales - Nir Ben Yona
Evernote is pretty good, but I don't write long form inside it...If iCloud Pages had the same coherence of export that iCloud Keynote does, would kill Word...and I think that would be the end... - J.C. Bouvier
So eBay now allows users to sell virtual currency like bitcoin. this is HUGE. - Nir Ben Yona
did Steve say "simultaneous" in a British accent? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Is anyone here though using any of these tools collaboratively? I can't find anyone in my world who would share an Evernote w/me, or even an Office365 or Quip session...trying hard enough to get my little team to use Asana... - J.C. Bouvier
Gots to split, have a great weekend everyone! - J.C. Bouvier
bail Asana.... #slack kills it. - Jerry Schuman
Evernote is very sticky, because there is a personal aspect for using it. - John Taschek
Asana feeds into Slack...although I'm still working that out... - J.C. Bouvier
Oye, it feels like 5:30pm to me and I've only have a yogurt and coffee today - Tina Chase Gillmor
Evernote is beyond sticky for me. Can't do anything without it anymore. - Tom Guarriello
My notes needs have been rudimentary. I use Notes on iOS - Tina Chase Gillmor
Can you save an IOS pages documents to .doc format the way you can do on mac? - Darren James
Enterprises are not going to go Quip. They will choose office just cause. - Murray Macdonald
I use Evernote on every device, I have the Fujitsu scanner (recommended), use ZendOne to connect Evernote to Google Drive, Web Clipper for everything interesting I see. Email to Evernote. It's pretty amazing. - John Taschek
John Taschek, that sounds like a nice setup - Tina Chase Gillmor
Murray: I disagree, but not immediately - Robert Scoble
Ouch! - Alex de Soto
I want a real keyboard when writing a document. - Murray Macdonald
my tummy is grumbly - Tina Chase Gillmor
Quip doesn't have an open API. I can generate a XLS document, but with Quip, no. - Murray Macdonald
EverNote rules. The ways Steve just described Quip, I see no use for it. - Thomas Rector
Doc Searls came online - Daniel W. Crompton
In addition to doc and xls documents, our team needs to collaborate on Visio, Photoshop and Designer Vista documents. Lync allows us to do that on Mac and PC and to a lesser degree on Android. Planes have wifi. - Murray Macdonald
Robert - if you have to take off it's ok - Tina Chase Gillmor
there are documents and there are documents - Tina Chase Gillmor
Lawyers use email because email attachments have legal precedence and are legally binding. - Murray Macdonald
I saw boobies! - Darren James
Love Quip but my problem is that none of my contacts (with one exception on this show) have Quip. I'd have to invite them all. - Alex de Soto
I suspect MS will add such features soon enough. - Murray Macdonald
it will not be used to create legal papers. but more creation through collaboration as we have tools to do it - Tina Chase Gillmor
wow, the Quip people should love this show - Tina Chase Gillmor
Oops with the boobs! - Alex de Soto
BUT is about collaborating with other people, NO? --> Keith - Nir Ben Yona
Alex: Andy Grignon did that to show me the first porn site viewed on an iPhone. Hah! - Robert Scoble
We regularly have 6 people in 4 different cities sharing a single design real time using desktop sharing via lync. We can edit every type of document and review it seeing the exact same thing. We share Visio, Eclipse, Browsers, etc... That's real time collaboration. - Murray Macdonald
Darren: that was Hah. (Andy worked on the first iphone). - Robert Scoble
not safe for work! - Robert Scoble
Ok Robert. You get a pass on that. guess. ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Or Gillmor Gang. - Robert Scoble
First porn site on both iPhone and now Gillmor Gang. - Robert Scoble
I must go. - John Taschek
I must go too - Robert Scoble
all we have is now, Keith. ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Bye guys! - Daniel W. Crompton
i believe in collaboration - Keith Teare
How do CAD users collaborate using Quip? - Murray Macdonald
But not in collaboration as a replacement for thought and creation - which is mainly solitary - at least initially - Keith Teare
