Same here. There's something about the conversations here that I don't think we'd get anywhere else... - Thomas
It's my hourly stop, if not more some days. - Fleagle

Robert Scoble
FriendFeed update. Paul Buchheit wrote me and said he's been very sick the past few days. That might explain why he hasn't engaged the way we want. He also offered to do an interview with me to discuss the future of FriendFeed and what they are doing at Facebook soon. We're working that out, hopefully soon (but might not be until November sometime)
I don't know if that's a good idea for you, Robert. You might be better off making a clean break from FriendFeed. - Bruce Lewis
Thanks Robert, that's great news! Paul, hope you feel better... - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Bruce: FriendFeed=Facebook. So, I'm interested in what he's doing and I'm a big fan of Facebook's. Twitter needs some competition. The Fail Whale is getting to me. - Robert Scoble
Another reliable update. - Ashish
I know it's a stretch but can we gather specific questions for Paul to answer? - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
When other sites like twitter come out with new features, you want to be at the front of the excited crowd. FriendFeed will make you into that curmudgeon who's always saying, "So what? They did that two years ago at FriendFeed." - Bruce Lewis
Cjay: I've been working on this interview since before Facebook bought FriendFeed. :-) - Robert Scoble
manielse: well, the interview isn't on 100% yet and now that I've talked about it in public who knows what will happen? But if it does happen of course we'll get you involved. - Robert Scoble
Cjay: I might be a rusty wheel, but remember two things: 1. I put many many thousands of hours into FriendFeed before the sale, bringing my audience over here at great risk to my personal brand. Lots of "experts" like Mike Arrington told me I was wrong to do that. 2. I'm still here. - Robert Scoble
OMGAWWWWW he still has "it" - sofarsoShawn
I hope Paul gets to feeling better soon. He's a great guy. - Phil Glockner from iPhone
sofarso: I never lost it. :-) - Robert Scoble
Cjay: actually it's not. It just looks risky. - Robert Scoble
To those giving Scoble crap for being on FF, aren't you tired of that? You all have been doing that for at least a year. Enough. For us on FF, we'd love to see an interview, thanks. - Eric - Final Countdown
Paul, get well soon - Shane
Good luck for the interview, Robert and thanks for the update. Hope Paul gets better soon. - Mahendra (SkepticGeek)
Thanks everyone. I'm actually not "very sick" though, just "kind of sick" -- it's mostly messing up my sleep. - Paul Buchheit from iPhone
be well! - Laura Norvig
Chicken soup - but stay away from those soul books ;) Hope you're up to speed soon, Paul. - Micah
Looking at the time-scale, doesn't that actually answer the question? You don;t wait THAT long to deliver good news or to debunk a false rumour that killings your platform (well, Zucks platform). - Jim Connolly
Paul - sorry to hear that! (it's 2:30 am here, I can empathize with your sleep problem) - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
Eric, sorry if it sounded like I was giving him crap. That wasn't my intention. I think Scobleizer has a serious career decision to make: http://ourdoings.com/ourdoin... - Bruce Lewis
Hope you feel better, Paul. - Kol Tregaskes
That will be an interesting interview, thanks for posting this update. - Dan owns Comicsforge.com
Can't wait for the interview!! Thanks to you and Paul for keeping us updated!! - Rosemary Sorg
Robert, do you think Twitter is too unreliable or do you think the competition is healthy? - John Cass
Feel better soon, Paul! - Ruchira S. Datta

Got @feedly working and WOW it has Google Reader NAILED. My new home page.
Why so late? - Rahsheen
exactly! - michael sean wright
I just went back to it today after a couple weeks hiatus. - Bryan R. Adams
I just wish they had a web service or something that worked with Safari - Jesse Stay
Coach: I've been using it for a while. Not late at all. It's just that this new version finally nailed it for me and got me excited. Why? It shows friends. That's the main thing I liked about Google Reader. - Robert Scoble
I'm waiting for Feedly for Chrome - Andre P. Siregar
Thank you Robert @Jesse a few people have been able to get an experimental feedly for safari running (see http://blog.feedly.com/2009... ) Andre: I expect us to push out a Chrome version out in October. - Edwin Khodabakchian
Awesome! Thanks, Edwin. - Andre P. Siregar from email
Edwin, nice! Thanks! - Jesse Stay
I've said it before and I'll say it again; Google should buy feedly! It's my favorite app by far. - Michael Fidler
@Michael: We would actually prefer to see Google Reader become a platform like twitter and feedly be one of the clients built in that ecosystem. For RSS to go mainstream, you are going to need a lot of different niche experiences to emerge. - Edwin Khodabakchian
Happy to hear feedly works for you, does Firefox? It runs_slowly_for_me... - David Libby
The thing is utterly incomprehensible. - Dominic Jones
Yeah. Feedly has been my homepage for a few months. Love it to death. - Quasar
Feedly is fantastic. Not sure why more people aren't using it. I'd love to hear what the guys on TWIG think of it in particular. - invariant
I just installed feedly last night and have just started using it. I'm looking forward to putting it through it's paces tonight. Looks very slick. - Aaron Schaub from iPod
Feedly is one of my fave apps. Hardly look at google reader since I started using Feedly and so easy to cross post too! - Ange Recchia/angesbiz
Edwin: definitely looking forward to it. - motownmutt
I am going to have to give this thing a try. - Vadim Lavrusik
Feedly for Chrome, please? Pretty please? - Craig Eddy
yay I can't wait to see it in Oct for Chrome! - metalerik
@Keith. Yes. There was an encoding regression in a patch we pushed out this afternoon. This problem has been fixed in 2.x.014 and everything should be working correctly next time you restart firefox. Sorry for the inconvenience. - Edwin Khodabakchian
I was using Feedly a while ago and went back to Google Reader. It was just too painful to keep up with all my feeds. - Jody Fanning from twhirl
@feedly has completely taken over my use of google reader... - Andy Bryant
Love, feedly, looking forward to trying the Safari version - Kim Landwehr from BuddyFeed
yeah feedly is great, but try the greasemonkey plugins for reader. i like enhanced black. when its late and dark and i just want to scan the internets its perfect on the eyes - Robert Higgins
Sorry if this question is a rookie mistake, but pros/cons GoogleReader vs Feedly? THANKS. - Jimmy Watson
Paul Grav
After 6 months of complete silence, an Apple employee posted a couple of messages yesterday to the ZFS mailing list on macosforge.org. This is good news since it means that a Mac OS X implementation isn't quite dead yet.

Quick Take: Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" - http://www.winsupersite.com/alt...
Uh, Paul? Exchange on SNow Leopard supports Auto Discovery. All I needed was email address and password, and Mail, iCal, and Address Book had everything they needed. I understand the article, but some of it is just nitpicky, and that is coming from someone who has been using both Windows 7 and Snow Leopard for a few months now. - Andru Edwards
Wait, you compare Grandcentral (and to a lesser extent, OpenCL) in Snow Leopard to "multicore features Window's had for years?" Both Leopard and Windows had coarse grained multi-threading in many of their applications (just open up Activity Monitor and look at the thread counts (my Finder says 11 threads right now on Leopard). This is not what's going on with Grandcentral in Snow Leopard. - Ray Cromwell

I do like FF and use it almost every day. Wouldn't it be great if FB either left it alone so we can continue to use it as "professionals," or somehow incorporate it into a more "mature" version of FB that didn't have all the annoying, time-wasting apps, games, etc. I'd much prefer a totally customizable FF "wall." - Cathryn Hrudicka

@robert yes they (we will) stay here, I think tat the migration process will take time and after reading @Paul Bucheit, I think that what we all are trying to get even if we don't say it explicitly is to preserve a kind of intimacy (beeing a part of the Huge faceBook community) don't mean that FF community will preserve their intimacy, why should a community be a plan one, (let imagine a community as a set of sub-community) that all. - abdellah

@Robert RE "I have enough noise in my life. I don't need to have more" - isn't it a lot of noise having 26K subscriptions and 46K subscribers on your frf account? I'm kind of surprised - you create a community that large around yourself, yet when you see a new and unusual activity you just block it right away. - Based on real people

@Robert, patience? Who's talking about patience? It's about curiosity, not patience. When something strange and unusual happens around you, you can either try to stop it or try to see what it can develop into. You choose to stop - and it stopped. Well, not stopped - just moved to some other place. And do you really know what it was and what it was about to bring you? - Based on real people

I'd like to reiterate my call for Facebook to open source the Friendfeed codebase (as AOL did when it bought Netscape). A federated OpenFriendfeed is the best for users - and fits Facebook's move toward an open social platform. I'll pay to run a server. Would you?
I agree with this fully. - Akiva
I can't imagine that the terms of the acquisition would permit this to happen. Oh, wait... Facebook take FriendFeed open source? Maybe in two or three years after they squeeze every bit of life out of it, ala Google/Jaiku - Ken Sheppardson
Would that mean there would be dozens of Friendfeeds all trying to get us to come to them? - Mark
I support this fully - Ryan
yes what about a free GAE - abdellah
Oh I agree. But with Facebook's record? HAHAH! Oh god, I need a mint. - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
I'll file this away under "Never Gonna Happen"... - Andrew Terry
Jaiku is not dead. It was bought for a reason, and yes, it will resurface soon. you just wait n see. - binmugahid
I agree with Andrew... - Suril Amin
I don't think I'd pay, but I'd love to have it open source - Jake Anderson
Worked for AOL. We got Mozilla and they got a much improved Netscape. - Leo Laporte
Leo, I think you have a little too much "hope" on this. Maybe you're just thinking if Facebook was smart, then they'd do that. - Mark
Facebook is much smarter than you're giving them credit for. I think. - Leo Laporte
great idea Leo, i'm 'cautiously optimistic' at this point in time about the future of FriendFeed... lets hope for the best people - Chris Heath
There is no value in that to them. Why open source something that give them a competitive edge. - binmugahid
I do not agree. It destroyed netscape. let Facebook use the best features of FriendFeed in it. Keep the talent like the four ex-google founders. Open source is not the answer to everything. sometimes Closed Source is better for the users as well. Just keep the innovations coming and it will be fine - hasanahmad
They've got the Friendfeed team. That's probably what they really wanted. Getting the open source community working on the FF codebase and contributing it back to Facebook is a win for everyone. - Leo Laporte
On the other hand, I ike to see Laconica (identi.ca) getting more like ff. - Chanux
Wow did this just happen today? - bravestface
yesterday - Chris Heath
Open-sourcing Communicator may have ultimately destroyed Netscape as a brand but without that move, I suspect we'd all still be developing for IE6. Great call, Leo. - Jared Smith
Excellent idea Leo. - Arawak
I just can't stand Facebook. To many people I let in from my youth that I don;t want to see - bravestface
You're assuming that Facebook bought the company JUST to get the developers, and not because they want to integrate many/most of the features into their service. If they want the features, they don't want a bunch of clones competing with them. - Joel Bennett
bravestface: That's not FB's fault you let them in. sheesh. - Gus
when will twitter be back up any 1 know - daveccorey
There already is an open source clone of twitter - see identi.ca and laconia or whatever it's called - Doug Holton
True. very True Gus. My own fault. Perhaps I need to setup an Alias account that encompasses what i really want - bravestface
I already run a Laconica server at http://army.twit.tv - I don't think we need another Twitter clone. We need something more like Friendfeed. Or maybe Wave will be the answer. - Leo Laporte
hay hay hay, sin duda un tema un tanto escabrozo, pero entre Facebook y Google, esto no lleva a nada bueno.. i'ts a hard theme, no doubt about that, but between facebook and google we are going to hell !!!!!! - Đoи яамoη
Or Pushbutton? - bravestface
This would be amazing. - Adam Teece
The Wave *protocal* might be a part of the answer... or just giving yourself over to whatever Google wants you to use might work (i.e. Wave, Reader, Gtalk, etc.)... but I don't really see Wave asdirect 1-for-1 FF replacement. - Ken Sheppardson
Too many systems in place - bravestface
They open sourced the Facebook code base (fbopen)... the license is very restrictive, however. FB owns all code modifications. Probably be the same license for FF. - Kurt
In know people that have replaced their email with Twitter....that just isn't right...we need one locator that many systems can reach - bravestface
Great idea Leo. Now let's see what they do, if they're listening. - Kelly Mitchell
Leo - your last comment is why I think Facebook bought Friendfeed: "We need something more like Friendfeed. Or maybe Wave will be the answer." This is going to be a product they will launch in opposition of Google Wave. It will surface Q1 of 2010 and will have some of the same features that Wave has - but be closed sourced to Facebook. - Jeff Vreeland
I see what you mean. Facebook and Google though don't really open source their web apps - Doug Holton
Facebook doesn't seem to have a good reputation with those kind of thing. Facebook promised to open their chat/IM system via XMPP. More than a year has passed since they announced this XMPP system it still did not happen. We still have to rely on screen-scraping methods to implement Facebook chat on third-party IM systems (like the 3rd party Facebook chat plugin for pidgin called pidgin-facebook). - Gideon Guillen
I would love to see friendfeed become opensource. Mostly as a developer I would love to see the code. See how friendfeed works. - mikemcmullan
An "open FriendFeed" could be Facebook's chance to get something lined up to compete with Google Wave. Without it, Google and Twitter are going to own the real-time communication space. - Derek Gathright
Completly agree! - Jamie-Lee Mclean-Davis from Nambu
Open source is the way to so that "The poeple" can do what they want or to a program. E.I. www.Openssourcemaps.com - D Lets from iPhone
Absolutely. - Ian Littman
OS FF would be awesome, but making it a federated service is an entirely different ball of wax. Just ask the Wave guys. They said during the original IO presentation that federation was one of the harder parts (though FF would be easier w/o the real time editing piece, but still). - Patrick Sullivan
OS FF - Malcolm Bastien
I think a integrated RSS/FB/FF/GW/Twitter client will be an interesting real time inflection point - Jim Posner
I totally agree Leo. I can't help but think that this deal is going to be a massive success or a massive flop - nothing in the middle! It's simple things like opening the FF source that can help make it a massive success IMHO. - Chris Cathcart
correction: Http://www.openstreetmap.org - D Lets from iPhone
I would just like to see the real-time commenting open-sourced. - patrick
wow Leo you sure know how to get a topic started - Joe Geeting
I actually was hoping Twitter would be the one to grab it up. Seems like a natural progression for Twitter to make. I just hope Facebook doesn't bury it and they actually use it. As far as open source it? Could be interesting. - Michael Bower
definently - Ryan Peach
Right-o - Myrddin Emrys
I would love for this to happen. Federated Friendfeed servers would be quite fun and is the logical step for a great Internet service which aggregates disparate information from all over. - rob
You know what, Jaiku was open sourced. And nobody uses it anymore. The fact that "it" (FB open sourcing FF) will happen or not is completely irrelevant. Because you will all be hopping on the next early adopter miracle train (read:service) anyway. So stop whining and move on. Federated this, federated that. identi.ca tried that. Again, no users. It's nice to talk the talk. Especially at times like this. You just gotta walk the darn walk afterwards. Which people usually forget to do. - Vlad Bobleanta
Whoa... you should enhance your calm. Communities are finicky things and sources like Microsoft that are poo-pooing Open Source IMHO is the real problem. Me thinks that a better source of education to dissipate the FUD floating in the global porcelain bowel instead of modern political tactics are are needed to solve real problems. - Myrddin Emrys
Leo, like this idea. - Kol Tregaskes
adoption of open standards such as OMB, which is used by laconica, would allow federation among servers - Mike Chelen
It will one hell of a start, I doubt it though... - Dobromir Hadzhiev
It would be a good thing, but not sure it it will ever happen - Thomas Lee
I support this as well. - Carlos Ayala
Now this is something I would fly out to support at the launch... - Johnny
Another reason why Leo kicks ass - Mo Kargas
If FriendFeed went open source identi.ca / lamonica would be dealt a serious blow. FriendFeed could become even more powerful if the people could tinker with the code and add many features that remain missing, or strengthen features that currently are weak. It will be interesting to se how FB utilizes their newest acquisition... - Randy Shapiro

If we can't laugh at the Nazi's, what good are they? - Paul Puri
Wonder what they are saying in German. It's delightful seeing this crazy man talk about FF, twitter and plurk. That was the funniest. "We still have plurk" - Myrna
Yep, that's pretty much my exact thought process. :) - Jandy
Dave Winer
FB buying FF is bad news for FF users.
Agree totally Dave - Roberto Bonini from iPhone
Why do you think so Dave? - Tim Akinbo
10000% agree, its dreadul and the big boys like Leo and Scoble cant seem to see it! - Mark
Leo laporte says "This is a big step toward an open Facebook. This has been their goal all along: a distributed Facebook." What a Crock of SHITE - Mark
They bought the people! - Mark
yeah... but it is also a smart move, they got the team.. - Rob Sellen :o)
I'm trying to give the FF team the benefit of the doubt...but I'm having a hard time with it as well. - Ken Kennedy
Born to be sold, we were used to say in the new economy era. - Federico Bolsoman
They bought the people. We Stick with that. FF guys are Smart/fast and have deep Google knowledge - Marco Massarotto from iPhone
I agree an independent Friendfeed might be preferable for we few brave FF users. But the writing was on the wall. For most users it's Twitter or Facebook or nothing at all. Aligning with Facebook is smart long term thinking if FB is planning to open up as I am convinced they are. - Leo Laporte from BuddyFeed
Let's hope that FB doesn't block people from using the 'competeition' while on FF. - shelter watch
Seems everything's headed for an autumn war Facebook <> Google Wave - Jordi Soler
hmm, an open, new version of FB that uses all of what makes FF great would be nice. - Dusty Edenfield
Leo's got the right idea, and independence is a myth - Steve Gillmor
Well, how could it possibly be a good thing? - Fleagle
Agree, I'm not a Facebook fan although I try but.. I'd definitely take FF over FB anyday. - Sharon Dexter
I prefer a FriendFeed folded into Facebook versus a FriendFeed that quietly fades away, which is the direction this was going. - Mike Doeff
Totally agree - facebook is so tedious and slow. FF is wonderful. - Zphotogal
+1 mike - Riaz Kanani
We imagine FB with the SEO juice of FF, thus intercepting search traffic... - Marco Massarotto from iPhone
I can certainly see the best ideas from FF being folded into FB but not sure what that says about the future of this site and the data it contains - Keith Harrison
Except for the whole FriendFeed dying slowly in the obscure ghetto of the digirati part. As Mike said, FF in FB is better than no FF at all. FriendFeed users are far better off having it than watching it its gradual anemia grow worse and worse until one day it vanishes. - Curtis Schweitzer
While this may never happen, consider it a possibility - your entire FB feed now available in FF. - Tim Akinbo
It is really hard to see how FB will do more than incorporate staff and ideas from FF. FriendFeed's design of being a very open aggregator is very different than FB's walled garden ethic. I also think part of what attracted me to prefer FF over FB is the clean interface, as opposed to FB fire-in-a-bordello presentation style. I hope FB really listens on the UI side and not just on the aggregator side, or works just mines out the staff. - Technodad
This is a good thing for FF and FB both. This will lead to a more open FB and steal Twitter's thunder. - Tim
"the writing on the wall?" ... that's just hyperbole, Leo. Paul Buchheit himself said in his interview w/ Scoble that they could have kept the service alive "for years"...there was no financial issue forcing this, like tr.im or something. And while I suppose there are those that believe the most popular site/music/art/people are always the best, I think that's both a shallow way of... more... - Ken Kennedy
Like 4 Ken - Marco Massarotto from iPhone
What I care about most is having a Facebook profile that is *actually* public, viewable by non-users. - Andrew Roche
I definitely DONT LIKE IT grmphhh ! - laetSgo
@andrew that's one thing FF team is very good at: climbing Google :) - Marco Massarotto from iPhone
DOnt like it either. I'm off to a self hosted http://sweetcron.com/ or wait for a http://kakuteru.com/ invite. - Mario Valente
i'll agree to wait this one out before being totally devastated about Facebook buying FriendFeed - Chris Heath
Let's leave "en masse" - Giorgio Burlini from iPhone
Facebook is banned from my work computer. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Live *open* BadHair podcast in 8 minutes. (347) 843-4661. Call in if you have a comment or question re FB/FF. Starts in 3 minutes. - Dave Winer
Wait and see ... - Kate Foy
It means you'll have to share. wahhhhh - Andrew Smith
I think it is a bad idea. I don't like to use Facebook except for frivolous reasons. FF has been good for reliable information. I suppose I'll stop using it so much now. We'll see. - Barbara K. Iverson
I want to see where this is going but definitely my favorite social site just got folded into my least favorite. - Braden Douglass
It depends entirely on what direction FF would have taken next (and what direction it will take Dave). Think most of us that have been around FF since almost the start (when it was a MUCH smaller place) miss that but this actually might be a good thing. - Charlie Anzman
Agreed if they lose the FF interface. - Wei-Yen Tan
If we put all our faith into a single platform or a single solution [Twitter/FB/Goog] then we lose touch with people, processes and where history is taking us. In this case, we’re headed more in the direction of where .tel and Identi.ca are stumbling, consciously or not: towards a non-web-centric, permission-based polycephalous set of systems, where discussions and messaging transpire... more... - A Mitchell
Google Wave is coming to replace all this stuff. And Google Reader will get more social features including item recommendations through comparing users likes, and so Google will win this. Good time to sell. - Charbax
Interesting convo we had there dave, thanks for letting us call in and participate. - Chris Heath
But the real question is who will take over who? Isn't there a possibility that FriendFeed will takeover Facebook! I hope FB make it work as I like the idea of FF but it doesn't have the critical mass of people talking about what I am interested in! - Phillip Molly Malone
Very bad I'm sure there will be some changes - Annika from Nambu
I agree it's probably bad news for FF users.FF has reliable info. I don't want it to become chatter. - Leigh Marriner
I'll admit to being a recent convert to FF but it was the best social site I have used yet (and I have used them all). I am sorry to see it lose it's independence. This will not end well for FF groupies. But my reading of the tea leaves is that FF options as a standalone service were not good. I guess this is a sign of a maturing market. Can a Larry Ellison acquisition be far behind? - Michael Liss
simply but clear - Gioia Feliziani
I agree with Dave's original assertion. I'm struggling to imagine the value Facebook could add to FriendFeed, and I can certainly imagine the downsides. Having an aggregator that sits independently on top of the commercial pile, while fleeting as a free service, is a valuable one. - Allred
disagree. - Gus
I have my suspicions too. But Facebook have been wanting to open up more for some time (e.g., they're eliminating regional networks), and I'm guessing they see FF as the key. I'm betting they'll fuse the two services soon. But let's hope they use FF to improve FB. But there's always a big chance FB will ruin FF. Stay tuned... - Dennis Jernberg
+1 for A Mitchell's insights. If tr.im and FF have taught us anything, it's that no matter how many open api's there are, a closed platform is still a closed platform, and it can disappear overnight. We need a decentralized yet federated way to do all that FF did (and more). If it's not decentralized, we don't have redundancy. if it's not federated, we lose community an conversation. - Don Faulkner from BuddyFeed
another +1, Don and A Mitchell. I just finished a blog post along almost exactly the same lines, Don...decentralization and federation are both key. Good news is, this is historically how things go...nerds only, then mainstream joins, but centralized (think AOL, Compuserve, Prodigy...services and email that couldn't talk to each other). As the systems mature, then value of decentralization becomes apparent. This week could actually be an important milestone in speeding up that process *here's to hoping...*. - Ken Kennedy
But Facebook buying friendfeed is great news for the 250+ million fb users! (And most ff users have fb :) - Garin Kilpatrick
It would have been better (slightly) if they were acquired by Twitter. I'm not a Twitter fan, but I think FF would bring more to twitter, it would be a better fit and the users and the interface would have a better chance at "integration" - Mario Valente
I've read its good for FF, it's bad for FF. It's better than being sold to google, it's better than being sold to twitter. Myriad variations on a theme, which leads me to conclude we haven't got a clue what the future will bring. - Mark
FB will better integrate FF than Google or others ever would -- one hopes. let's see what happens and go from there. Good news is that it will generate a ton of news for you peeps to report on. - Gavin Adams
It's simply time for a distributed story for this type of application. You shouldn't need to rely on any providers who can be down or might be bought. - Christian Scholz
"Google Wave is coming to replace all this stuff." And lock you into yet another platform owned by one company. - Ian Betteridge
@Ian...Wave is a federated, decentralized, (to be) open-sourced solution. It's complicated, but it's at worst an architecture lock-in (ie, it might be hard to move a large corpus of Wave-annotated data out of the Wave infrastructure). Unless Google is pulling a flat-out lying fast one...there won't be any reason why you can't run your "own" instance of Wave and connect to the rest of the Net. So not standard company lock-in. - Ken Kennedy
Ken, to be honest, I'll believe it when I see companies other than Google taking the code and running an equivalent service. Flat out lying? No, probably not. But "only able to do something useful if you're connected to Google in some way"? Probably. - Ian Betteridge
@Ian, I hear ya, but I've read enough of the technical specs to lay my money on the other side of that bet. - Ken Kennedy
Really? I think the old Jaiku community would disagree with you on that. And the people who stored their bookmarks in Google Bookmarks, too. - Ian Betteridge
why? - Thomas Power
Sorry - I meant Google Browser Sync rather than Google Bookmarks. One is dead, the other alive and well(ish). But the point is that Google has a track record of killing or abandoning services when it suits. - Ian Betteridge
True, Ian. Google's "do no evil" doesn't keep them from killing things that aren't panning out for their world domination strategy. They're marginally more saintly than Facebook. - Sean Gallagher
Is it because of the Facebook ad approach that Dave W and Scoble are looking to jump ship on FriendFeed? - Sean Gallagher
Sean: I'm not jumping ship. But I will follow early adopters wherever they go. - Robert Scoble
Or Google Notebook. Even given that and Jaiku, though, which did do a blow to my faith in Google, I would rather a Google-FriendFeed than a Facebook-FriendFeed. Mostly because I think they'd let it do its own thing rather than assimilate it. They left YouTube pretty well alone. Oh well. - Jandy
disagree with FF and LI nxt year bottled up inside Facebook this forces Google MS and Apple to get seriously social and start playing rather than just watching. Google-Twitter, Apple-Facebook versus Microsoft-Bing now that's a battle I want to (socially) watch with all you guys. Oh what fun. Can't wait. - Thomas Power
I'm not sure Facebook or FriendFeed are entities whose well-being I value so highly; users, I care about, and having FriendFeed developper work their magic, their talent and their stand for open standard to benefit 300M people sounds more important to me then having them spend more time tailoring the digerati's private network. I'm far for believing you can't improve FriendFeed, but I'd... more... - Bertil Hatt
@Bertil_Hatt: if there's one thing that FriendFeed isn't it's a private network. Facebook is the one who, on the other hand, operates like a "walled garden" or a private condo. - Miguel Caetano
Only if you believe the FF has a sustainable business model? - Gary Walter (gwalter)

Robert Scoble
I love http://www.feedly.com -- it is how I read my Google Reader feeds now. Requires Firefox, but if you have it very nice headline display
How do you consume RSS on your iPhone? - Mike Bracco
Mike: I use NetNewsWire, personally. - John Fox
Mike: FriendFeed. - Robert Scoble
ByLine - syncs with Google Reader - Brian Roy
John: me too, I use NNW on Mac and iPhone. - Mike Bracco
I used this a while back... it sure has come a long way. - Evan Travers
Robert: I never would have thought of using Friendfeed as an all purpose RSS reader. Don't know why it never occured to me. - John Fox
Scoble: I assume you just mean that you follow the stream of info here - do you use the FF imaginary friend feature to add feeds? - Mike Bracco
Mike: I follow 25,000 people and their RSS feeds here. - Robert Scoble
Feels like I lose control when I use Feedly though its a very beautiful interface to GReader. - The Fat Oracle
Firefox feels somewhat slow after Safari 4 - jess
Scoble: Gotcha...you probably have enough "real" friends that you do not need to create "imaginary" ones :) - Mike Bracco
i love feedly too - andy brudtkuhl
Feedly.com is best RSS reader for ease of use and readability without question - Jonathan Evans from Friend Deck
Fun that Feedly's founder is here too: http://friendfeed.com/edwk - Robert Scoble
Feedly.com is best RSS reader for ease of use and readability without question - Jonathan Evans from Friend Deck
thanks for sharing, I use "times" but it's a bit "memory" heavy : ) this one could be next! - ledretch
I have to create *some* imaginary friends since some people on my Twitter don't have a FF account yet. I keep begging them, though. - John Fox
I started using feedly again recently. I love the interface. - Spirit 2.0
Josh: here in friendfeed there's just a lot of noise sometimes. Blogs tend to me more thought out than most of the things people import here, which can include Tweets, short items, upcoming events, etc. Sometimes I just want to see blogs and Feedly brings me that. Also, there are still lots of people who don't use friendfeed (although that number goes down every day, I'm getting 1,000 new followers on friendfeed a week which demonstrates that friendfeed is growing pretty quickly). - Robert Scoble
Interesting stuff... always curious as to the business model... - Buzz Bruggeman
Thanks robert! @buzz: more on the business model very soon. Stay tuned. - Edwin Khodabakchian
Awesome find, also going to use it as my start page. - Chris Lang
Requires FireFox?! No thanks, let me know when there's a Chrome version. - Martin Johnson
Robert: I thought you were in the FriendFeed can replace Google Reader camp, which made me question the way I was using FF. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one that feels FF isn't the best place for blog aggregation and that blog aggregation is still valuable. Too bad I've switched back to Safari for now. - Chip Ramsey
I liked Feedly, but FireFox not so much, compared to Safari. Unfortunate that they have to tie it to a browser. - Oliver Bouchard
I've been enjoying http://feedafever.com/ in Safari (both desktop and iPhone versions). Firefox is far too greedy with memory. - Jason Wehmhoener
Agree: Need a chrome version. - Ron Hudson
I've mostly bailed on Google Reader altogether: http://bit.ly/N7JTa - Mark Czerniec
Chip: keep in mind I haven't used Google Reader or Feedly in weeks. FriendFeed actually brings me most of the good stuff I see in my Google Reader feed. But if there's a reason you need to use feeds still, Feedly is very nice. - Robert Scoble
Thanks Robert. Installing now. - Mark Davidson
Love the interface - Henry Liu
@Jorge. Yes. When you read an article in feedly, it is marked as read in Google Reader. When you share an article in feedly (thumbs up or share with note icon), it will be shared in Google Reader. Finally, when you save an article for later in feedly, it will be starred in Google Reader. - Edwin Khodabakchian
Feedly appears to have grown up since I played with it about a year ago. I may try it again but Firefox has really lost my love as of late compared to Chrome. When Firefox only crashes individual Tabs in separate memory spaces (which is rumored to happen), then I may love my Mozilla tool once again. Seems like I'm not the only one who feels the same. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
manielse: I agree. I love Chrome and wish Feedly worked in it. - Robert Scoble
@bill: feedly supports most of the keyboard shortcuts of Google Reader (j, k, s, n, p, etc..). Click ? in feedly to get the complete list. @jorge: yes for about 10 minutes, the registration and authentication service had their heads under the water. Should be back to normal now. - Edwin Khodabakchian
I've tried Feedly a couple times but I just can't use the "headlines" interface. I like still plugging through Google Reader for what info I still having coming through that channel. - Tony
@tony: me to. i like to hammer 'j' untill i see stuff i like. it's nice and single-tasky. feedly makes my brain want to read everything at once - Chris Bingham
So do I. It's becoming my only start-up page. It's Google Reader for lazy people (I'm one..) - Martin Añazco
ooh, hammering j also works pretty nice in feedly! i'm sold - Chris Bingham
might take a little getting used to, but the presentation of your feeds is really nice.. - Robert de Castro
I just gave feedly a try but must say that it doesn't offer many benefits over Google Reader. Some of the things I like include the 'Karma' feature, the ability to aggregate articles related to Twitter's hot topics, and of course the magazine look. However, I find the interface somewhat clumsy in that how articles are marked as read is somewhat confusing. Their preferences page should... more... - Angus Burton
Ah, I love feedly too been using for 6 months .. hey, wait a minute, you still read feeds in your reader? - Beth Kanter
I agree with Angus. I prefer Google Reader's simplicity. - Curt Mercadante
I am an experienced user of both Google Reader and Feedly, with subscriptions to over 1,000 feeds, and have discovered that I can cover much more ground more quickly and more easily with Feedly than with Google Reader. But Feedly takes some investment of time and effort to learn -- there is much more to it than meets the eye at first glance. Its full value isn't apparent until you dig into the full feature set. - Sean McBride
What Bryan at the top said. FireFox? That dog don't hunt on this box. You gotta Make the apps work in any browser, or I (for one) am not likely to play with them. Safari, Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Opera. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
is feedly working ? here is not ! : / - Rocky
@rocky. it should work. What is the error you are running into? Can you please open a bug on http://www.getsatisfaction.com/feedly and I will track it down - Edwin Khodabakchian
I love Feedly. I don't read a lot of RSS feeds, but the ones I do are very diversified, and I think Feedly organizes well. I like the magazine feel to it, and I really like the fact that I can mark a feed read, but save feeds I like to really read or refer to, when I have more time. - Bonnie Foster
finally, a way to look at RSS feeds that's welcoming...you know, like a normal website :-) - Julian Seery Gude
One of many Feedly power features: you're subscribed to hundreds of feeds. You want to jump to a particular feed without navigating lists of feeds. Start typing the name of the feed in the Feedly incremental search box, and bingo: there's the feed, ready to click through to. Example: typing "lif" -- three characters -- brings up Lifehacker. Try doing that in Google Reader. - Sean McBride
for feedly users - the topic search is amazing i.e. http://www.feedly.com/home#tr... - michael sean wright
Confirmed that Feedly is still not for me. Just rather see an enhanced, smarter GReader with Filters, User Behavior Ranking (not Social Ranking but knows others what this) and Topic groupings (auto hide articles that appear to be duplicates). - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
i'll try it for a few days, i think i like it now, it seems a lo more organized and, most important, it brings discussion and conversation right into the feed reading, and that is a feature i was looking for! - Ivana from email
love feedly! It's the Only way I use Google reader :) it's my start page baby HA! - Aline Ohannessian
I don't even know where to start with the reasons I love Feedly. It's an indispensable part of any good information filtering/data gathering tool set. - Mike Elliott
I began to use Feedly five days ago, after three years of use of Google Reader, and certainly i will not turn back. Fantastic experience! - Stalkk.ed
I love Feedly too! I started using it a few months ago based on some recommendations here at FF. It was as much an upgrade to me as going from my 4 year old Treo to the I-phone. HUGE. - Kelly W.
I will have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing. - Rocque
I tried it today... and yes, looks really great and beautiful, now I'll do a daily test... yes, thanks for sharing! - Arne Krueger
How does it look on mobile? - Mathew A. Koeneker
Brian: j, j, j should mark articles as read (titles turning black instead of blue). If you are seeing a different behavior, then it must be a bug. Could you please open an issue on http://www.getsatisfaction.com/feedly with any potential error message being printed in the firefox error console when you click on j? Thanks. - Edwin Khodabakchian
I noticed a lot of Google Chrome fans yesterday in this thread. Not Feedly but a good tool to look at. If you are using (currently Dev Build), I'd highly recommend you checking out TPGoogleReader (version 0.3) http://tpreal.dcmembers.com/TPGoogl... - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Just installed, pretty nice - Che Hodgins
Feedly is supreme. Looking forward to the iphone version! - John O'Day
I find it a bit busy still, but the mini toolbar is great - Yant
I love it too. I use it for my start page and that's how I read my news each day. Would be nice to see it for other browsers. - Quasar
Yup. Feedly is great and I especially like the mini toolbar, makes sharing stuff on Twitter a breeze! - Jorge Barba

One problem with creating private groups for Twitter feeds to simulate imaginary friends is the username Friendfeed suggests is the same as the private group name. If I forget to edit it, I'll in effect be squatting on that name. It's a problem if that Twitter user wants to join Friendfeed later.
Make a single private group for all your Twitter feeds, then apply filters. - Karl Knechtel
The old imaginary friends feature generated a hex string for the username. - Morton Fox
Karl, how do you make a single group work for multiple Twitter feeds? I couldn't tell which tweets were from which feeds. - Morton Fox

Any chance we could get an API method to create imaginary friends? Lots of people are asking for automated ways for porting friends over from Twitter or other services....
http://socialthing.com/ style good for feed basic website for example friendfeed.com - Nimaa
I don't care about socialthing.com, I want to consume all my messages on Twitter and elsewhere through FF, but Im not manually creating hundreds of imaginary friends - Brian Stoner
Perhaps an easier way to import Twitter feeds of people not on FF would be good. - Kol Tregaskes
It would make FF even stickier, if I could do this, Id have very few reasons to visit Twitter - Brian Stoner
This is something I'd love to get. I started listing what I'd want my ideal twitter client to be like and realized I already had it in FF. Give me an easy way to add my non-FF Twitter followers and I'd never have to leave! - Neil
yes! more Imaginary Freinds! (and keep the Rooms as they are!) - Franc, a rememberer
Brian, the socialthing example is exactly what you're looking for.. That's what socialthing does to an extent. If FF incorporated socialthings friend discovery AND ping.fm's posting capabilities it would be just about what you are looking for. - Bill Rawlinson

While I agree that FriendFeed has the tools in place, Twitter still has the social graph, and they're holding it in their cold, dead, stiff-with-rigor-mortis hands, which limits the reach of the discussion here, much to my chagrin. It's extremely frustrating to me to have to bridge conversation here and there unsuccessfully, so I find myself migrating between, depending on my mood and ADHD. not especially effective. - Karoli
Karoli: I totally disagree. But I've said too much. When I was at Kozmix today I laid out why. Twitter just doesn't have what is needed to hit the gold mine. Will they add it? Maybe, but then Twitter will have to copy Facebook which is copying friendfeed. - Robert Scoble

Christian: even better, if you click the timestamp on that link you'll get a popout window so you can watch just this conversation evolve in real time. - Robert Scoble
Robert: I didn't say Twitter would dominate. Just that their stranglehold on my Twitter Stream limits the reach of the conversation here. It frustrates me to no end that there's such latency between twitter and FF, and that I can't simply get a timeline stream from Twitter here. - Karoli
Karoli: oh, I agree with that. But there's a gold mine out there and Mark Zuckerberg is VERY close to it. I figure his drill bit is a few yards away from finding it. Twitter is hundreds of yards away and friendfeed is close to a small offshoot of the gold bearing ore, but doesn't have either enough people or the expectation of interaction with business that will let them get there first. Maybe later. - Robert Scoble
Robert: I am. I was referring to a link in the article. - Christian Burns
Christian: I know. - Robert Scoble
Karoli: but you give twitter the power by continuing to post there. Twitter actuall lays your graph wide open, but the tools to mine it are not here yet - Christian Burns
Robert, yes, I'm slowly wrapping my brain around what Facebook has. It actually took me observing non-geeks using it to begin to understand it. Since most of the world is non-geeky, Facebook has some clear advantages. Twitter is simple. Friendfeed is powerful. Facebook appeals to everyone on one level or another. - Karoli
Christian, I know I'm giving Twitter power. It's because I actually LIKE the people on Twitter, and trying to have a conversation from here to there is a little like shouting through jail glass. Twitter knows this, I'm sure, which is why they don't care to offer me the ability to pull that stream over here. I can pull it to clients, even to IM. but not here. - Karoli
Karoli: Facebook has demographics and nine-out-of-10 users. Friendfeed has metadata and real time. Twitter has hype. Facebook is copying friendfeed. Facebook will find the gold first. - Robert Scoble
Karoli: you can even make a list of friends on facebook that you can call, "the non-moose club" :) and filter that way - Christian Burns
Twitter has talking heads on radio and TV saying "I am on twitter" and then posting "call me now about such and such topic" - Christian Burns
Why does 'real-time' dump 6 posts from the same user that are minutes apart and not deliver item by item chronologically from all I subscribe to? - Gregg Scott
Gregg: because twitter holds onto them and then dumps them out at that same time - Christian Burns
And how can I block the Twitter @ replies to people I don't follow in FF? - Gregg Scott
I'd like to be able to pick and choose from amongst all the person's sources of content in the event I only want some of their posts from specific apps. Is that possible? - Gregg Scott
Appreciate the attention Steve. I take perverse pleasure in being the representative of the bass-ackwards viewpoint. - Dave Slusher
anybody know the embed code for this convo (realtime view)? - Steve Gillmor
Gregg, yes, you can hide posts from content, but you'll block it all...not just the @replies from twitter. - Karoli
I want to embed it at the foot of the post - Steve Gillmor
Christian, I've got FB lists. I just don't like FB, because too many people cross over my real life/online life conversations there. I know lists do something to limit that, but it's not quite there yet for me. - Karoli
kshep: make it so - Christian Burns
Karoli, what if I wish to just read someone's Tumblr but not their Flickr, can I do that? Sorry if this is an uber-newbie inquiry. IOW can i pick and choose the apps within someone's feed or do I have to take the whole thing? - Gregg Scott
Gregg: Yes. You can do it from their profile page, and you can do it from an entry. If you see a twitter from them and you don't want the tweets here, just click "hide". You'll have the option to hide all entries like it from that user. - Karoli
Karoli: Thanks! It's nice to converse with you again! - Gregg Scott
Karoli: Its the same for me. Facebook is people I know AFK that don't care about twitter but are updating status and commenting on fun stuff. I like to keep them seperate to a point - Christian Burns
Gregg, you too! Christian: I came dangerously near to divorce a couple of weeks ago over something I said on Facebook that the other didn't like. it was innocuous and anyone online would have understood it perfectly. The spouse, not so much. - Karoli
Facebook is only people I've met. Most Twitters I haven't met. I've started another Twitter only for people I've met in my city(Vancouver-for now). - Gregg Scott
Steve: I think you could copy/paste the source from this page: http://www.kshep.net/genie/ - Ken Sheppardson
Here you go steve <iframe style="border: 1px solid #437ec7;" frameborder="0" width="400" height="600" src="http://beta.friendfeed.com/stevegi..."></iframe> - Christian Burns
Karoli. I am baffled. I cannot find either a way to Hide or or from entry. Better Google this. - Gregg Scott
Gregg, i sent you a direct Friendfeed message with directions. - Karoli
I hope that not just anyone can post a comment with an iframe on techcrunchit. - Phil Maxwell
So it's a Safari 3 issue. The Hide command doesn't even show. Just so you know that it wasn't a deficiency on my part. - Gregg Scott
yo, dawg, I herd you like comments, so I put an comment in your blog so you can smile while you blog. hmm I think there was a meme on rocketboom about what's going on right here, embedded comments in Steve Gilmor's comment. http://knowyourmeme.com/memes... now to figure how to embed another comment system into a FriendFeed comment. Disqus? - rob
I just can't help wondering what needs these developments serve. There are many marvels both nascent and alive at the moment but it is feeling in the dark. The only sure touchstone is uptake but even that is problematical in terms of return times.It seems cloud can be cloudy as well. - tom murphy
From Jackson Browne we have the concept of Running on Empty but in this case I think you're Running on Intuition. I think you're right and I'm that you're sure you are too, but I can't help but wish you had more than intuition to guide us through this. Half blind or not we're rushing headlong into something and I'm enjoying following along on this wild ride. Keep writing. - Richard Shulman

Dave Slusher
The whole #amazonfail brouhaha actually is an example of why I push back on the whole Gillmor "supreme importance of realtime data flow" thing. I think giving people time to think before reacting isn't a bad thing. Less real time, more quality time.
Dead on, Dave. I don't have any problem with people expressing their opinion, but I agree that realtime isn't the best way to make actual meaningful decisions about issues. You need validation of what's happening, background info, etc. Otherwise, it's just herd mentality. - Ken Kennedy
typical contrary evil genius. only problem: it's not one or the other. - Steve Gillmor
Just like in combat, reaction time in every domain has been reduced by a factor of ten. I hope Amazon does an "after action review" to learn from this one. That's the key. - Tom Guarriello
Steve, do you think there is some Schrodinger's cat situation at play? Either #amazonfail warriors reacted without thinking or they didn't. Both simultaneously is not an option. - Dave Slusher
validation, debate, investigation are all part of the real time flow -- part of creating quality. - Cliff Gerrish
Hey Dave, did you delete one of your threads? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Interesting strategery, laying theoretical upsides against empirically observed downsides. - Dave Slusher
Alex, no. Not sure what you are talking about. - Dave Slusher
hey this telephone we're talking on is squeezing my brain. click. - Steve Gillmor
Ahh, I figured it out. Just a brief moment of dementia. I commented on this similar thread http://beta.friendfeed.com/willia4... and for some reason thought it was created by you, heh. Oops. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Put another way, some of you are saying "real time can give more time for analysis to happen and people to react better." I'm saying, "Yes but it didn't." - Dave Slusher
Yeah, I'd disagree with anyone saying that real time gives more time for analysis. Ask any cop in a dangerous situation about what real time does for their ability to analyze and make good decisions. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
One of the ways I used to deal with flame wars (this is BBS/GEnie era) is to put myself on mandatory 1 hour minimum delay. If the conversation made me so mad my hands shook, that value climbed to 12 hours. Every unsatisfactory interaction I've had on FF in the last 6 months involved a short cycle pile on that I wished I could enforce a delay on. - Dave Slusher
It's in no way a failure of realtime, it's the failure of disconnected retweets instead of threaded conversations. If it had blown up with the use of likes and dialogue instead of misinformation in tweets and blog posts we could have gotten to the bottom of it sooner. - Christian Burns
I don't understand why you're blaming real time. I have intentionally not commented on the Amazon issues until I understand them better. That's a choice, not driven by real time or delayed time. Controlling one's reactions to real-time data is not the responsibility of real-time data. It's an individual one. - Karoli
When the ethic is for everyone to get the drop on each other, this sort of thing happens. We hate it in the 24 hour cable channels, why do y'all love it in Twitter? - Dave Slusher
Karoli, I'm blaming the culture of twitchy hyper-responsivity. If that isn't what real time is trying to enable, what good is it? - Dave Slusher
If slow food is generally healthier food and a healthier lifestyle, why is the analog for information so controversial to y'all? - Dave Slusher
dave why are you responding to this in real time? seems contradictory and not a little ironic at best - Steve Gillmor
Sometimes real time is useful. At the very least, it sparks an investigation. There's a difference between an investigation and jumping to a conclusion. - Francine Hardaway
So let me refine some. ~50 AD, Apostle Paul: "The love of money is the root of all evil." Note, not money but the love of it. 2009 AD, Apostate Dave: "The love of realtime and retweeting as quickly as possible is the root of fiasco." - Dave Slusher
you're blaming the messenger, or in this case the tools, for what some of us like nd appreciate. I don't mind you spamming me with this thread, why do you? - Steve Gillmor
by the way dave, I assume you're not using the realtime view but preferring to pause it and refresh at your leisure. - Steve Gillmor
Sheesh, Steve...can you maybe be a little less prickly over this? I think Dave's larger point is more than valid. He mentioned the "G"-word, though, and you appeared and started poking him. C'mon...you think you could relax and consider the actual issue rather than the fact that he dissented against the gospel? *rolls eyes* - Ken Kennedy
Ken, I appreciate your having my back but please everyone, let's walk this back from the ad hominem. I love Steve, even when he thinks I'm not right in the head and vice versa. - Dave Slusher
No worries! I like Steve and the Gillmor Gang as well. Feel the love. - Ken Kennedy
My point is that the data toolset is currently outrunning human cognition and judgment. It's like giving the toddler a weed whacker. They might well edge the yard beautifully but that might not be how the smart money bets. Everyone in this thread might be responsible with the tools but demonstrably many are not. - Dave Slusher
I'm not saying "turn off the tools", I'm saying "This may not be the infotopia we are being sold." - Dave Slusher
I saw this in real time and "liked it." - Robert Scoble
What was the brouhaha? URL please. - Robert Scoble
Robert, are you being ironic about #amazonfail ? If you liked it 3 hours after I posted it, you are really pushing the definition of real time. - Dave Slusher
Am I out of the loop or are you talking about http://community.livejournal.com/brutal_... - Holger Eilhard
Dave: I agree 100% with "My point is that the data toolset is currently outrunning human cognition and judgment." but I don't think that's anything new, is it? That's been a problem since the "toolset" was just a guy standing up in front of a crowd turning them into a mob in real time. - Ken Sheppardson
BTW, if this is to be another of these pile-on threads, let me just say now: Go register for CREATE South - http://www.createsouth.org/ April 25th, Myrtle Beach. - Dave Slusher
People say stupid things in real time and negative real time. Rarely does less timeliness gate stupidity . You have co-mingled timeliness and insight. A first order category error. - Jim Posner
Dave: I saw this on the real time feed. I don't get all things in real time. I do sleep once in a while, too. The engagement this item was getting in real time brought it into my view when I was working on the screen. Now that I'm engaging on it, I see everyone posting in real time. Jim just commented, for instance, while I was talking here. - Robert Scoble
Dave: real time is not forcing me to think faster, just gives an opportunity for interaction WHILE something is on our mind. This is far better than the world of 2000 when it took hours for us to see each other's blogs. - Robert Scoble
Robert, you spanked me publicly for reblogging something Andrew Baron posted about you leaving PodTech a few years ago, where I didn't stop to consider something well enough and just ran with it. You calling me "full of shit" is still a high google hit on my name. This is me having learned the lesson you taught me. - Dave Slusher
Dave: good point. - Robert Scoble
Of course now everyone is searching Google for that, which will raise that result even higher as we all click on it. Heheh. - Robert Scoble
Here's the Google search you talk of: http://www.google.com/search... - Robert Scoble
Of course I left PodTech four months later. So all things become true if you wait long enough, I guess. - Robert Scoble
yes sir, that is it. Even without your name qualifying it, it's high on the list for me. That thing from Chuck Olsen was also the first Tweet I ever saw, which left me snakebit for a long time. - Dave Slusher
The more interesting post of yours, though, is this one: http://www.evilgeniuschronicles.org/wordpre... - Robert Scoble
I am still trying to escape from PR people. - Robert Scoble
Just tell them to send the tequila my way, Robert. ;) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I can tell Dave isn't using the new beta of friendfeed yet. His replies are too slow. :-) - Robert Scoble
Robert: Or he's off thinking. - Ken Sheppardson
Or trying to find the "block" button again. :-) - Robert Scoble
And I still haven't joined Facebook. In the time since I posted that, I have joined and dropped Twitter; joined and used FriendFeed and then dialed back that interaction. I think the sentiment of that post holds up better than most. - Dave Slusher
... or I have a day job - Dave Slusher from IM
Real time threads are like a fire bell, it tells everyone there is a problem that needs to be taken care of, however it is is not the best time to do an investigation. - Kim Landwehr
Dave: day jobs do retard social networking participation, I've found. :-) - Robert Scoble
I thought we were all supposed to be making a living commenting on FriendFeed discussions by now. What's the deal? - Ken Sheppardson
Are there perhaps some topics where we benefit from a real-time response - e.g. a plane crash and others that don't? How would condemning Amazon for alleged censorship benefit from being done 'urgently' as opposed to accurately? Aren't a lot of people joining in because they want to be where the attention is? - Robin Barooah
I don't mind the real-time responses of their customers. It gives them true reaction-based feedback, and i'm sure that their marketing department is intersted in that. What i wouldn't want is for Amazon (or any other company) to make a similarly "real-time" decision on how to handle the problem. Their actions should be "less real time, more quality time" (via Dave Slusher) - Matt Danger
+1 Matt - Robin Barooah
Matt, I agree with you, but can you separate that out? Most of the customer criticism I've is in part or total taking Amazon to task for the slowness of their response. - Dave Slusher
Dave: at Microsoft I had a tactic I used for things like this. I simply acknowledged that we saw the thread and needed time to get an official response out. That way you stop people from throwing metaphorical rocks through your front windows to get your attention and you give your internal team enough time to get a decent answer done. - Robert Scoble
As a unrecovered packrat, I also recognize the general strategy justifying real time. It's the same one I use to justify the clutter that fills my house, the 1 time in 500 when it proves valuable. Mostly, it just makes my life harder. - Dave Slusher
Robert, we've just crossed the point where I'd call the Amazon response slow (if there hasn't been one.) Now it seems reasonable to me, calling them on it at 8 PM EDT on Easter Sunday was just silly. - Dave Slusher
Dave: Do you have the same issues with, say, the telephone vs. writing letters by hand? - Ken Sheppardson
...and that's honestly not intended to be snarky. - Ken Sheppardson
Ken, when there is a meltdown at work and my phone rings off the hook with executives wanting an update every 3 minutes, yes. I have to stop answering the phone and just email them if I am to fix the problem. - Dave Slusher
But should we turn back the clock on the technology or just recognize that we need to change the way we use it? - Ken Sheppardson
(see also "Luddites") - Ken Sheppardson
Ken, what makes you think my pushback isn't on the way we use it? - Dave Slusher
Well, I can see this both ways. These companies now are huge global corporations that run 24/7. They are willing to take our money 24/7 so need to be supporting us 24/7 too. Zappos does that with 400 employees who are on Twitter. My Toyota died on a Sunday and it really pissed me off when I couldn't get support. On the other hand, you are right, we need to be more patient as a people and all this real time stuff isn't helping us do that. - Robert Scoble
Weren't people angry about Amazon's slow response because they thought Amazon was guilty of something? i.e. they were holding Amazon guilty until proven innocent? In this regard I think it was important that Amazon did *not* snap to attention to get a response out in real-time - because that would be establishing a pattern of needing to respond to every misinformed mob. - Robin Barooah
"I think giving people time to think..." Do you mean "giving" or "taking?" Or, "forcing?" Because here you all are chatting about the quality of the information, as if anyone at this point can really know. This real-time flurry is very efficient at sifting, sorting, and reacting to complex info. Think of yourself as a single cell in a great big investigation organism. Fast. Cool. No way could Amazon have harnessed this much power alone. - Nancy Folsom
Dave: Sorry, I guess I'm getting this all confounded with the pushback I hear RE the changes in FriendFeed, etc., with people calling for things to be rolled back. - Ken Sheppardson
Robert: you know - over time it might actually help us learn to be patient - I'm sure there are some people who added vitriol to the outrage who are now feeling embarrassed about reacting without verifying. - Robin Barooah
I haven't been following the #amazonfail brouhaha but this write-up gives insights into the genesis of the whole affair. http://tehdely.livejournal.com/88823... - Jim Posner
Nancy - how about "requesting?" The seriousness of the accusation should correlate with the care taken to verify the claim. - Dave Slusher from IM
I am reminded of when cellphones started to become popular and people complained that they could now be reached at any time. Some people learned to switch off their phones when they didn't want to be reached - whilst many people still find them a source of stress. - Robin Barooah
Dave- I don't disagree with you if your point is people should be careful about spreading rumors. But that's a fairly bland idea, right? Like don't kick puppies. Sure. I agree. But most of what I read were not accusations, but facts. What wasn't a fact was being shot down as fast as it was voiced. At least where I was. Are you asking for information to come out as a neat package? - Nancy Folsom
Robin- I can still go days without answering my phone. Unplugging. It's teh awesome. - Nancy Folsom
Ken- First, damn you all for such an interesting discussion! But, "real-time." It's not as obvious to me as it seems to be you all what you mean by "real-time." How much time should have passed? And, sadly, that's no guarantee the time will be used to come to any better judgment. IAC, I'm most struck by what this looks like if you pull out far enough you can't see the individual anymore. - Nancy Folsom
Here's Ed Champion calling for an amazon boycott yesterday, full of presumption of guilt. http://www.edrants.com/amazonf... We are better than this. I'd argue this action is the dark underbelly of real time. Calling a business immoral and deciding this is a deliberate business practice requires proof IMO, same as if you were to say it about a neighbor. - Dave Slusher
Epitome of our country on full display, sped up. Emotive decision making is quite embarrassing. Hopefully, these events will kick up our critical thinking skills. - Mona Nomura
Gee, if only there were some way to counter the presumption of guilt in real time... - Cliff Gerrish
The truth has always had trouble getting it's boots on and thanks to real time, it may happen faster. - Jim Posner
Jim, you don't think the most salacious thing will travel farthest and fastest, like say is happening RIGHT THIS SECOND? - Dave Slusher
Let me reiterate this one more time - I think the culture of real time is harmful, and I don't like the fast twitch desire to treat news inputs and outputs like a first person shooter. This is not about technology, this is about people being spastic. You can't point to isolated successes without factoring in the general wear and tear and blood pressure elevation across everyone involved in the twitchosphere. Taken in total, it's not worth it to me. - Dave Slusher
In putting money where mouth is, I have a huge amount of CREATE South work to do tonight. No real time for me the rest of the night. Did I mention April 25th in Myrtle Beach, http://www.createsouth.org/ ? Come participate and tell me how wrong my views are. I'll even feed you free lunch. - Dave Slusher
No matter what basic clock speed the system is running at, it's always going to take more cycles to read and comprehend the entirety of an event or what somebody else has to say, do due diligence, think, and formulate a logical response vs just respond with a knee-jerk emotional reaction to a headline. It's certainly possible that as the system runs faster and faster, it's more likely... more... - Ken Sheppardson
Dave-Misinformation has always traveled faster than the truth. Just ask the Meher Baba folks in MB http://www.mehercenter.org/ :-) - Jim Posner
Does anyone have any opinion about why Amazon got such an intense reaction when there are so many other bad organizations that don't seem to draw such ire? New thread: http://beta.friendfeed.com/rbarooa... - Robin Barooah
based on Amazon's statement, there wasn't anything nefarious going on. Just a very widespread and unfortunate bug in their catalog system. - Garrick Van Buren
Everbody's just cruising along with all sorts of preconceptions, opinions, and cognitive filters and as soon as something comes along in the real time stream to trigger them, it's like sharks smelling blood in the water. - Ken Sheppardson
Matthew: You're more optimistic than I am. ;-) - Ken Sheppardson
