Twitter has broken adding Twitter accounts to FF
try adding a Twitter identity to your FF account. I'll wait - Steve Gillmor
Works for me, no problems removing and re-adding my Twitter account. - netik
tinagillmor tries to add her twitter feed, gets an error. Says "could not find the given account." - Steve Gillmor from IM
bit quick to conclude that twitter has broken with FF don't you think? - Christopher Harris
no christopher if it's FriendFeed's problem I'll be talking on NGL in 30 minutes - Steve Gillmor
Happened to me as well, once I clicked the checkbox below the name and put in the password it worked for me. - J Allen
Jtio what checkbox, the one for Protected? - Steve Gillmor
yes I noted this problem yesterday and today - FF said it could not locate new twitter feeds I wanted to add. - Vernonkell
Don't blame Twitter; I just checked our feeds and are definitely sending tweets to Friendfeed, and they are receiving them. - netik
People are also having difficulty following people. I've seen many messages over the past couple of days with that complaint. - Karoli
Yes, the one for protected updates - J Allen
Where do you go to tune into the NGL live?? - Dave Winer
Bret Taylor of FriendFeed on NewsGang Live at 1PM Pacific stream http://tinyurl.com/6ze734 - Steve Gillmor from IM
Something not working with Twitter? That's truly surprising considering they are the most reliable service on the net. - Bjorn Stromberg
i log into twitter and start following a user - cool. i go to FF and try to set up an imaginary friend (enter name, select twitter service, enter twitter name click "import twitter" and BAM: "We could not find the given account" whoever is causing this, it sux and needs to stop. - MikeAmundsen
interesting. I saw that a bunch of tweets seemed to come into FF 30 minutes late yesterday. I wonder if this is part of a strategy on Twitter's part to disrupt Twitter service within FF in order to undermine the competition without coming out and taking the heat for publicly pulling the API from them. I hope not. - Thomas Hawk
Figures the day I finally give in to starting a FF page and I can't wire up my Twitter account. - Tina Chase Gillmor
We're running into some rate limiting issues, but I'm working with Twitter to get them fixed. I just put out a work-around for now, so you should be able to add your Twitter account now. Sorry for the difficulty. - Paul Buchheit
Welcome to FriendFeed Tina. - Thomas Hawk
Wait, what's broken? Twitter or FriendFeed? Don't understand the post. :( - Mona Nomura
Broken for me at the moment too... - HostelManagement.com
same issue for me - Sinan Yuce
Same issue for me. It says "We could not find the given account" when I want to add the Twitter account... - HDG Ticaret
friendfeed is pulling my tweets from twitter. I want to stop this. In settings, I am not allowed to do it anymore. Can someone help? - Fatmanur Erdogan

10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed - http://thomashawk.com/2009...
10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed
I wish there was a AIR client for FF though. - barl0w
Twhirl works well for FF and it's an AIR client. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
Great article. I want to learn more about the dumping the RSS feeder part. You should share some tips with that. Good stuff. - Amani
Love seeing FF through the eyes of someone who's not a traditional techie =) - FFing Enigma
Thanks Bob! - barl0w
A big part of why I wrote this post and have it running in my number one photo spot on Flickr right now is because I want more of my photography friends to sign up for the service. I *love* seeing photos here on FriendFeed and there are so many talented photographers who are not here yet who need to be. If we can get more of them to sign up, you guys will love their work. Of course there are many great photographers already on here but still a lot more who could join. - Thomas Hawk
I had to re-share this with all my FB friends. :) - Kelly W.
Still trying to figure out this whole friendfeed experience. I've had the account for a while and see lots of my twitter friends posting via ff - Demetri Mouratis
great piece! - mashable
Hi Demetri =) Different people use FF different ways because they want to get different things out of it. What are you hoping to get out of it? - FFing Enigma
Thanks for the tip. I had FF but really never 'got' what it was for. This helped! - Molly Nichelson from twhirl
Nice post Thomas. - Paul Wade
TH - for those photographers that are not on here, I put their flickr id into my Flickr Imaginary friend and see their images that way. However, it would be nice to get more photographers on here with their reader shares and such... - Justin Korn
This is definitely the best "Why Friendfeed" post I've seen. - Nick in Manila
Justin, agreed. I have a bunch of imaginary friend accounts for Flickr/Zooomr users as well. But it is nicer when they actually have accounts here, their work can be liked and commented to the larger FF community, etc. It seems like a few new people signed up today based on this post so I'm happy for that. Thanks Nick! - Thomas Hawk
I have AlertThingy FriendFeed Edition as well as AlertThingy v2 - Outsanity
Well said, Thomas. :) - Josh Haley
Nice list of reasons, all well thought out. While I'm at it, I wanted to tell you that I really like your new blog design too. - Karoli
Do most folks use FF in Standard or Real-time view mode? - Scott Loftesness
Only ever real-time.. it sits nicely on the second monitor as a Chrome App. - Greg Gannicott
Realtime here... - Chris Gulker
Did you just reformatted your post, Thomas? It a lot easier to scan through now. - Alan Le
Alan, a lot of times I post first and edit later. I probably shouldn't do that, but yeah, after posting I broke up some of the paragraphs better, bolded a few things etc., to make it easier to read. - Thomas Hawk
That's great. Make sure to check out Windows Live Writer for formatting blog posts if you haven't already yet. By the way, I love the new blog design. It's much better than when I helped you with the html way back. http://thomashawk.com/2006... - Alan Le
Y'know... I must've spent two months randomly Tweeting things like "Will someone PLEASE explain to me why I should be using FriendFeed?" ... And then two days ago I start using my account (I'd had one for a while)... and NOW someone finally makes a post outlining why I should be here. You're two days late, Mr. Hawk, two days late. :P - Lou
actually, there's no search for Russian word forms on Frf. For me that looks as if there's no search at all - orie
hmmm.. I didn't know that orie. It seems like there is a lot of international users on FF, that's surprising to me. - Thomas Hawk
I've been trying to make sense of FF for months now, but every time I come away confused. As it is I feel like I'm drowning under all the social networking sites available. I use Twitter, Plurk and Facebook the most, and I use Ping.fm so I only have to post status updates once. How can I integrate FF into this without making things even more confusing? - Chris Taylor
oooh! I found the zooomr version of this post with no formatting and I whined somewhere else in my FF feed. This one with all the formatting is better :D - Tamar Weinberg
I really liked how you did a post on Flicker - MaryAnn Chick Whiteside
All good reasons but #10 is my #1 reason :) - Mark Krynsky
Mark - agreed. Also, Thomas ... very nice blog. I like. - Amani
@Tamar, the unformated text was a problem on the Zooomr image. Kristopher's fixed that bug now so text in descriptions on Zooomr photos should format correctly now. - Thomas Hawk
I wasn't using FF, but signed up after your post. Now let's see if it is really so useful ;-) - Marcel Körner
@Marcel also take into consideration who you are subscribed to. Aside from maybe four on your current sub list, they are not very active at all on FF. This will affect your experience here. - Carlos Ayala
Didn't know there was a "Porn" room on FF (see screenshot)... - David Young
how did you see that they are not active on FF? - Marcel Körner
David, the "porn" room on FriendFeed isn't all that active actually. I'm not really interested in porn per se, just thought it was a good group name to claim in the great FriendFeed land group name grab of 2008. - Thomas Hawk
@Marcel by their numbers, and the fact that i know most of them and can tell you first hand that they are not. (if you hover over people's names you will see their numbers) - Carlos Ayala
still hard to beat 5 years on for speed - Thomas Power
So true Thomas: people still can't as a majority read dynamic feeds. - Zu from AOD
it gives you an easy key to the way back machine - chaz2b
Kevin Fox
Just sat down and churned out a 38 item to-do list, none of which are frivolous. I have the feeling the list will get longer before it gets shorter...
Item 1 for your list: 1. Enjoy your vacation. - Stephen Mack
If it were me, I'd try to end the list there. - Stephen Mack
Turns out I enjoy making lists! Who knew? - Kevin Fox
I'm trying a few, see what works for me. - Kevin Fox
#39 build and design a new kick ass photo sharing site. - Thomas Hawk
So item #1 is write more lists? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
i totally agree,, very true, reminds me of my grandmothers` list!!, endless - sarah
I have no recollection of this list, what was on it, or how many I got to. - Kevin Fox
You know how I knew this was an old post? Thomas Hawk commented. - Spidra Webster
So, after a month off, did you finally finish it, Kevin? - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Heh. my 'month off' was more of a month ON. Work's kicking into a higher gear, where I'm making all kinds of other lists and kicking things off of them. - Kevin Fox

thomashawk on Hey Walmart, My Wife Was Mugged in Front of Your Oakland Store Today, Thanks for Censoring My Facebook Comment! - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Hey, I'm the one who wrote this blog post. Happy to answer any questions about it. To be clear. I'm not blaming Walmart that my wife was mugged. These things happen. Oakland has it's problems. Our cars have been broken into at least 5 times and stuff has been stolen. At the same time I think there is a lot of good in Oakland and don't like the idea of simply running away from a community because something bad happens to you. Maybe that's just dumb, but I think it only perpetuates the problem when everybody exoduses a city to leave it to rot for itself. I'd rather work on trying to fix the problems in a community than simply blame Oakland. As far as Walmart goes. They made over $4 billion with a B last quarter. I don't think it's unreasonable for them to have a security guard out in front of a problem store in a tough neighborhood. Several commenters on their yelp page talk about the problems with the parking lot there specifically. I doubt that my wife's is the first bad experience...." - Thomas Hawk
Imagine how this issue would have been handled in the past. You would have grabbed your sword or your shotgun and went after those hooligans. Now you mount a social media campaign. Interesting... - Todd Hoff

"hi, I took the photograph. This guy was completely covered in silver body paint which is why it was so easy to contrast him up in post. He was also completely and entirely nude walking on a public street in San Francisco. This is pretty much what he looked like, except in black and white. I shot it with a 135 f/2 lens which is the sharpest lens Canon makes I think. It also has great depth of field -- my favorite lens." - Thomas Hawk

Friendfeeders, Are games a waste of time? Why or why not?
I ♥d playing Starcraft and Warcraft + Playstation. :) - AJ Batac
Expensive but by no means a waste of money - Joe Dawson
Moderation :) - directeur from NoiseRiver
Heck no. If something is fun and/or entertaining, it's never a waste of time. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
for a Philosopher's take -- think of the value of drinking parties (Plato) - Michael Maranda
That's a good argument Alex. - AJ Batac
Depends on what type of games you're talking about. I think there's a lot more value in complex tabletop games and games like chess than in dumb Flash games online or whatever. - Rochelle
I have pretty much abandoned gaming in favor of social media. I was a several-hours-a-day PC gamer for 10+ years. I like to think that SM has more possibility of a return on my time investment than WoW did. - Daniel J. Pritchett
Nope, because I rock at Star Wars Battlefront II. - Steven Perez
I sure hope not. I was really sucked into Sims 2 for a couple years. Now I play a few times a week. Mostly to design houses. :) But, I'm still a sucker for 'casual games' like Diner Dash, etc (bigfishgames.com). I get lost in trying to beat the damn things. - Yolanda
Games recharge my brain and leave me refreshed to think about other things, a lot like a good walk. - Jennifer Dittrich
one exgamer says no - Dobromir Hadzhiev
No. Games can improve mental and physical dexterity, mental acuteness, memory, etc. There have been studies done. And *applauds* Alex's answer. -
Honestly, I'd rather read a book. :) - Rachel Walden
Depends on your priorities, but for me, I enjoy games. - Rodfather
no. Because some times you just need to escape the doom and gloom :-) - Duncan Riley
Not if it's Sorry or Life. - Thomas Hawk
Games are a release from the horrible world outside. They can bring joy and relaxation and bring down your stress life. They are a great interactive entertainment media. How is that a waste of time? ;-) Waste away I'd say. :-D - Kol Tregaskes
"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted." - Bertrand Russell -- Sometimes it's wasting time, just like movies and reading, sometimes it's useful. It does have benefits for hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills, teamwork, tactics, reflex improvement, vocabulary, cash management, etc. - xero
I don't know... is maintaining sanity a waste of time? - Michael W. May from twhirl
Only if you think it is. :) - Mona Nomura
Absolutely not a waste of time. - Clay Newton
Scrabble stimulates neurotransmitters. - Shelly Weiss
+1 xero. - AJ Batac
Really, I don't think that matters so much. What's important for our health is to intentionally indulge in completely frivolous "waste of time" activities on a regular basis. Playing games, feeding ducks in the park, blowing bubbles, coloring with crayons. If it feeds your spirit, do it, no matter who says it's a waste of time! - Ordinarybug Heather
Everything is a waste of time, then you get put in the recycle bin. Use your time the way you want to. - Sam Levine
No more a waste of time then being on FriendFeed. I can gain social interaction using both and at the same time be happy that I took something away from each. (No matter how trivial, it's still a small sense of accomplishment and fun.) - David Cook
Thanks for participating guys. Appreciate it! :) - AJ Batac
It has been argued that humans are "homo ludens" more than they are sapient. That said, I personally find that they can easily become a time tax, and tend to avoid them, preferring to spend that time on more solidly creative activity. - david beckwith
Probably my first native post on FriendFeed October 9, 2008. - AJ Batac
No way. - Anne Graham

What Are Your Photography Goals for 2009? - http://thomashawk.com/2008...
"My own long-term goal is to publish at least 1,000,000 photographs before I die." Good long term goal. My husband is a subway photographer and has nearly 18,000 photos of trains only on his website as accumulated over the last few years. I wonder if he'll get even close to 100k! - Tamar Weinberg
Simple, to start up again. I've not had time to do anything since getting my new job in July. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
I'd like to do at least one time lapse, light painting, and stop motion project. Besides the goals of getting the 5dmkII and 100-400L - Andrew Smith
@Tamar, that's a lot of trains. I like the size of that collection! And I don't even have 500 mannequins published yet. - Thomas Hawk
take more pics - dedrick
Ummm I want to figure out how to use a point & click - sofarsoShawn
My only photography goal is to start taking pictures again. I stopped for some reason as I started getting distracted by my other interests. :( - James (@willia4)
I commented on Marc's post as well: http://www.silberstudios.com/blog... - Justin Korn
Just to get better. I hope I'll have more time taking shots too. - Chris Nixon

Considering taking a photography class. I'd love to really learn how to work with film. -
My two photography goals for 2009 are 1) Actually learn the non-auto functions of my camera besides manual focus and "No! Don't Flash at distant things" and 2) Get better at low light and lunar photography. - Daniel Cornwall
To be better than I was a year before, to hopefully have a proper dSLR, and to have made some spending money from my photos. And to have fun. - Grant Bierman
To have a camera I could shoot a gnat from 100 yards with. and to take some classes so that I can use it. Ok, 50 yards... - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
take 4x the photos I took in 2008 and publish once a week to flickr - Mark Interrante
To take enough photos in 2009 that I fill all the hard drives of my new Drobo. - Bob Gannon
learn what ISO means - Michael W. May from twhirl

I want to shoot more with Thomas Hawk. I also want to edit more of my photos. - Robert Scoble
Get geared up with my 5D, learn some good lighting skills and start taking my food pics to build my portfolio. - Derrick
Build a Macro Studio and take better food photos for blog. Meet with the local photographer photo-walks. Play with my new UV filter. - Heidi Jeffers Thibodeau
Getting a quality camera and developing my skill is one of my retirerment plans; a don't think that will happen in 2009. - Robert Hafer
To meet more photographers in real life and go on adventures with them. - Trey Ratcliff
Get more out of my 5D...sometimes I feel I took better pics w/ my old 350D..take a look http://www.flickr.com/photos... - Vincenzo Cosenza
I want to continue to get better with my camera. I've only been shooting really for a little over a year so I'm still learning. I also want to shoot some studio sessions as that is something very new and challenging for me. - C.C. Chapman
Thanks to this thread, I took out my Canon Powershot S1 manual (three years old) and figured out how to 1) Take pictures in sepia, 2) Successfuly work the delay time to take a photo of myself and 3) Use the successive photo feature. I used the last on my cat, but I couldn't get him to move, so not worthwhile to see. I look forward to trying a few different things a month and seeing what happens.

Many of you all knew Extra Super Cutie, aka Carlotta Fancypants. She was active on Flickr, Zooomr and Friendfeed. I blogged a post about her passing yesterday and many people on Friendfeed and Flickr have expressed condolences on her stream. Her husband flickrmailed me today and asked if I'd inform the FriendFeed community of her passing.
They kept their internet socializing separate and Carlotta had a private stream here on FriendFeed so many of you would not know him nor he have an easy way to let everyone know. Carlotta was an early contact of mine on Flickr and I was so impressed with her work and her gift with photography. She loved the FriendFeed Community here and ended up being very active. She will be missed. - Thomas Hawk
Thanks for that link John. So sad. She obviously meant a lot to a lot of people here. - Thomas Hawk
I remember when you posted about her, however long ago that was. *sigh*. :( - Wirehead
Way too young. Very Sad. - Brent - Yes I am

100+ Portraits of Iconic People of All Time | Webdesigner Depot
"Today we bring you a great collection of portraits of the most iconic people throughout history. Portraits explore the relationship between the subject and the photographer or artist and usually continue to impress the viewer years after they have been created. The common thread running through all of these portraits is superlative design. Each is a masterpiece in its own right, from the medieval painted portraits right up to the most current photographs. This collection is arranged in alphabetical order and is by no means complete. We encourage you to post comments as to which portraits we’ve missed, that you feel should be part of this collection." - Thomas Hawk from Bookmarklet
some of the world's most iconic portraits in this set. - Thomas Hawk

see what you get when you translate "french are the stupidest people on earth" on Google Translate. - Thomas Hawk
HA, HA, HA! That is priceless. - Kenton
haha! Good one! How did you find that ? Tried to write something to Loic Lemeur ? - Éric Senterre
That is really really funny. - Spidra Webster
actually Ryan Dearth came up with it in DMU. it works with "stupid french" and "french are more stupid than english" as well. - Thomas Hawk
LOL !! - Roberto
yea funny lmao - tim70

It sucks that lightroom won't render noise reduction / sharpening at fit view. 1:4 is the next best way to see it rendered.
You mean the new LightRoom 3? - Outsanity
yeah. :) - Thomas Hawk

Thomas, have you blogged about LR vs. Aperture anywhere? I'd be curious how you think the two stack up. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

Proof that Google is racist.

holy shit... - Rafael
Uh.. WHOA! - Linda Lawrey
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that the people at Google put this in there on purpose. - Akiva
lol - conspiracy! - Jesse Stay
They may want to add an exception for that, though. :-) - Jesse Stay
are u serious thomas? wtf? - teymur madjderey
If you're banking on Google to recover your car after a grand thief auto, you might want to try other resources. Bing? - Micah
Me and my family just picked ourselves up off the floor and dried our eyes after ROFL'ing profusely at this... - Rahsheen
LOL! <sarcasm>I am going to go talk to the Race Czar's about this immediately!</sarcasm> - EricaJoy
if you search for "blakc peolpestole my car" you can see the same result.. just change for the correct one and take a print screen... hahaha this is hell funny - Rafael
FAIL! - Wayne Sutton
huh...I tried both and neither gave a 'did you mean....' Why the difference? - George Gray
George, this was from earlier. I think it's probably been fixed by now. - Thomas Hawk
I can't reproduce the results either. Even more proof that Google's damage control department works real f-a-s-t - BLOGBloke
I can reproduce these results (as it's fake). 1 - Do a google search for 'balck people stole my car' 2 - when the results come back, in the search box type 'white people stole my car'. 3 - Screenshot and fool everyone. - Will Higgins™
Thomas...ah...I was catching up on my feed and didn't notice when the message posted. Still, I have noticed different results when using Google from: the browser search bar, going right to google.com and when logged into google via iGoogle. Weird. - George Gray
This reminds me of how commercials for home alarm systems always feature white criminals. - Akiva
Dude, you win 1000 times over for use of the word 'colored'. I'm about as far from a racist as you can get but that shit cracks me up every time. - Akiva
これはひどい - as365n2
i think that google isnt racist, but people that use it yes..infact google shows firstly the most popular results.....this is my opinion..and please apologize me formy english..i'm italian!w La pizza! - Lyssa
they did it as the Chinese government did. - xia
seems they fix it somehow. - Mike
Lyssa's right. Google is a mirror. - Jim is digging out.
*Now* "white people stole my car" beats "black people stole my car" in a Google Duel, 3:1 - Tim Tyler
I sense a really nasty meme being created :-( - Ian D. Nock

Victoria Kolakowski, The Unethical Choice for Alameda County Superior Court Judge, Tries to Argue That California Campaigns Can Hire Out of State Telemarketers to Do Illegal Robodialing - http://thomashawk.com/2010...
Vote No for Victoria Kolakowski
What a horrible argument she's making. Did KCBS pick up this story because of your campaign, Thomas? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
In part. I'm pretty sure they used my recording for their broadcast. But I think it was Shaun Dakin CEO and Founder of Citizens for Civil Discourse and the National Political Do Not Contact Registry that pitched them on the story. I've been working with Shaun to try to build awareness over the illegal robodialing problem. - Thomas Hawk
FYI Thomas, your cause has hit Slashdot, http://politics.slashdot.org/story... - imabonehead
yeah, I saw that. :) Hopefully slashdotters convince her to stop. They're a tough bunch. - Thomas Hawk

Automated Flickr Help by Email Message #2.jpg
why does flickr keep telling me to use the help forum in their automated emails to me when I am banned from the help forum. How can I use it if I'm banned from it? - Thomas Hawk
Because they're automated emails and the automation software doesn't know you've been banned from it? - Jandy
maybe they should change the message to suggest that people who are not banned from the Help Forum consider using it? It reads funny when you're banned. - Thomas Hawk

So Which is More Offensive A Painting From The Art Institute of Chicago or Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz Telling Mike Arrington to “Fuck Off” At a Public Tech Conference in New York City? - http://thomashawk.com/2010...
Back Before the Supermodel, Plate 2
Both are equally awesome. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Consistent standards... - Johnny
Glen it's stupid that Flickr censors crap like this. It's not going to get any better if people just ignore it. - Thomas Hawk
Don't know which is more offensive (neither really to me), but there's very few cases where blanket censorship is good. - Joel Lovato
Neither is offensive. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
agree Mary and yet one is being censored by Yahoo. - Thomas Hawk
One I would let my kids see. One I wouldn't. - Jesse Stay
you know, it is funny, I'd have no problem taking my kids to the Art Institute of Chicago and walking through galleries with paintings like this one. On the other hand, I seem to always pause whatever I'm watching on TV if they come into the room and I think that they might use the word fcuk. - Thomas Hawk
Funny how Yahoo seems to feel the need to protect the kids from paintings in museums but their CEO can publicly represent the company in a way that would be far more offensive for most parents. - Thomas Hawk
Heh, hypocritical, eh, Thomas? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Jason, context indeed is key. I suppose that Bartz's comments were far, far, more public than my little photo would ever be. To me that only lends credence to the point that my content is likely to be in aggregate far, far, less offensive than her content. Hypocritical indeed if you ask me. I had a friend who had his account deleted without warning for swearing at a flickr staffer in a... more... - Thomas Hawk
