Now I get my pictures on google docs. All there is is some useless filename. And given the flat namespace of google docs there's now even more pollution of the name space so I can't find anything. Not well thought out.
And you can't share an image to G+ - Todd Hoff
So my screensaver just stopped working on Yosemite/iMac. How does that happen?

When things are not just things. - Todd Hoff
In the future when an AI tries to recreate a virtual you from your vast data footprint, the loss of FriendFeed will create a big hole in your virtual personality. I think FF catches a side of people that isn't made manifest in other mediums.
And I may archive my posts, but a lot of my interaction here has been through comments that will disappear. - Stephen Mack
Perhaps 50 years from now people will look back on our poor data hygiene with horror and disbelief. How barbaric they were in the past, people will say. - Todd Hoff
I'm inclined to say that now when I think of the first Doctor Who episodes whose tapes were overwritten. Sometimes you need distance to really appreciate a thing. - That's So CAJ!
Too true, Todd. - Jenny H. from Android
I'm sure the librarians have been thinking about this already, and it's why there are projects like archive.org, but so much of our written word now is electronic and fragile. My blog, for example, only exists if I keep paying a yearly fee to an ISP. If I stop paying, those pages disappear. But thirty years ago, some of those thoughts would have been preserved in a paper journal instead. So much of the early web is gone without a trace. So many 404s. - Stephen Mack
Yep. I'm lucky: The OCLC Library has been archiving Cites & Insights (and I assume still is), so even if I drop the domain registration & LISHost account, the archives might remain. The blog et al: not so much. - walt crawford
Hmm. Or not. Checking just now, the link that should go to the OCLC archive doesn't seem to work right. So C&I itself may be more ephemeral than intended. (LOCKSS? Where, exactly, am I going to get the money to pay for LOCKSS?) - walt crawford
Lots of data copies is expensive. Not an option for most when there's lots of data. - Todd Hoff
Todd gets me. - Laura Norvig
On another note, so that we might be considered *slightly* less barbaric, if you have a public feed here, and you want to archive a particular thread: 1) Go to archive.org 2) Put in an existing public Friendfeed URL, e.g. a permalink to an individual thread 3) It will say "This page is available on the web! Help make the Wayback Machine more complete! Save this url in the Wayback Machine" 4) Click that. - Laura Norvig
I just did it for this thread, in fact. How meta. Except it is frozen prior to this post. *head explodes* https://web.archive.org/web... - Laura Norvig
Any future recreation of me based on my Twitter output would need a pretty good comprehension of sarcasm or else it'll come out pretty wrong. - Andrew C (✔)
I hope my virtual self has a chance to see what your virtual self becomes. I'm sure it will say something if it's not a right. Though since this comment will be lost, perhaps not. - Todd Hoff
My problem with http://www.frenf.it/ is that from the westcoast it us just very slow. Not a nock on it, just what I experience.
Slow in terms of page loading or activity? - John (bird whisperer)
It used to be more real-time, but with the importing, they've had to slow things down. I think it is difficult to judge what it will actually look like at the moment, while there's a timeline to import people's old posts. - Jennifer Dittrich
Slow to access. It takes very long time to load and display thereafter. My suggestion is not to import FF if it impacts performance. Favor the new over the old. - Todd Hoff

Hear Classical Music Composed by Friedrich Nietzsche: 43 Original Tracks | Open Culture - http://www.openculture.com/2015...
"Now serious readers of Nietzsche, or those simply curious about his musicianship, can hear most of those compositions in a Spotify playlist above. Performed by Canadian musicians Lauretta Altman, Wolfgang Bottenberg, and the Montreal Orpheus Singers, the music ranges from sprightly to pensive, romantic to mournful, and some of it seems to come right out of the Protestant hymnals he grew up with as the son of a Lutheran minister. Nietzsche composed music throughout his life—a complete chronology spans the years 1854, when he was only ten, to 1887. See The Nietzsche Channel for a thorough list of published Nietzsche recordings and sheet music. To listen to the music here, you will need to download and register for Spotify." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Max Tegmark: Physics, Math and the Ultimate Nature... - The 7th Avenue Project: Thinking Persons' Radio - http://7thavenueproject.com/post...
"Just as some of us are getting used to the idea of the multiverse, along comes MIT physicist Max Tegmark telling us we’re not thinking big enough. According to Max, there are actually multiple multiverses, containing endless copies of and variations on the “pocket universe” we’ve quaintly come to think of as everything. Lest you think he’s tripping, Max assures us that he’s only high on mathematics and logic. And if the conclusions sound farfetched, well, progress in physics has often meant taking leave of our senses, ditching everyday intuition and trusting the science instead." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Genetic study reveals 30% of white British DNA has German ancestry | Science | The Guardian
"The analysis shows that despite the momentous historical impact on British civilisation of the Roman, Viking and Norman invasions, none of these events did much to alter the basic biological makeup of people living here. The findings support records suggesting that few high ranking Roman officials settled in Britain and that they and their families remained largely segregated from the local Celts." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"The Danish Vikings, who ruled over large swathes of Britain from 865AD, are known to have inter-married with locals, but the latest study shows that the conquering force, while powerful, must have comprised relatively few fighters. “There were very large numbers of people - hundreds of thousands - in those parts of Britain, so to have a substantial impact on genetics there would have... more... - bentley

FTC Report: Google Purposely Demoted Competing Shopping Sites
"Although Google originally sought to demote all comparison shopping websites, after Google raters provided negative feedback to such a widespread demotion, Google implemented the current iteration of its so-called “diversity”algorithm …. Google claimed the goal of this algorithm was to “increase the diversity of Google’s search results for product related queries.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Now You See Me. Magical movie, very entertaining. They keep the suspense up, the amazement high, and the action flowing. Though I'm a sucker for movies about magic. The only element that didn't work was the love story. It was tacked on and unnecessary. It wasn't the actors, they were good, but it was an obvious sort of we need a romance ploy.

But other than that the casting and the acting were excellent. Good effects. And just that right amount of how the hell do they do that. It's a different kind of social justice film, one that doesn't rely on cartoon super heroes, which is quite refreshing. - Todd Hoff
I finally got around to watching this and really enjoyed it. I agree about the love story angle. Why do they always do that? - Jenny H.
^ Chicks man. Movie producers assume females will be more likely to attend a movie with a love story in it. - Steve C, Team Marina
I would argue there was no love story in it, just a forced emotional hookup tacked on at the end. - Heather
Steve, it was the least enjoyable part! #notachick - Jenny H. from Android
Here's a friendfeed downloader that worked great for me. It's by M. Can Bayrak. More here: https://plus.google.com/u...
But no version for Windows users? - Sean McBride
What is Windows? It's python so it might work on windows. - Todd Hoff
I'm bookmarking that one for later - I figure I'll try a few different things to see what works. - Jennifer Dittrich
It worked for me when nothing else did. - Todd Hoff
does it have any advantage over this one? https://github.com/claudio... - خراسانی
That one didn't work for me. I kept getting bounced from the site. Though for reasons I don't understand it seems to be variable. - Todd Hoff
I made a cute little flash story called A Very Special Frankenstein Birthday. It's available on Kindle at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Very-Sp... If you have Kindle Unlimited it should be free or I can loan it to you. Just let me know. The art was done by an artist from Poland.

The End of Synthesis. In the Pipeline: - http://pipeline.corante.com/archive...
The End of Synthesis. In the Pipeline:
"What gets me about this current paper, though, is the concept behind it. This has the potential to take a large part of organic synthesis into the realm now occupied by peptide and nucleotide synthesis. Those two are certainly easier problems - you have one kind of bond between every subunit, and a limited number of subunits themselves. But the advent of solid-phase iterative methods to synthesize these sorts of molecules was still a huge advance. It took making such things out of the realm of every-one-a-new-individual-challenge, and into the world of "Sure, we should be able to make that. Fire up the machine." That first category, we should note, is where total synthesis of natural products has traditionally been. And proudly so. I've had a lot to say about that over the years around here, going back to 2002, but I'll summarize: I think that total synthesis was, at one time, one of the most vital and important parts of organic chemistry. But that day is past. Modern analytical... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
