Re: Hoogste tijd voor Nederlandse angel investors om kloten op hakblok te leggen [rant] - http://siliconcanals.nl/crowdfu...
"Doordat de Nederlandse angel niet te koop staat betekend het overigens dat het via je netwerk moet komen, je kun je immers niet bij "vreemde" angels aankloppen. Dat is in mijn ervaring doorgaans beter voor de relatie met een angel. Transparanties is overigens geen slechte zaak." - Daniel W. Crompton

I wonder how many more family members are gonna delete me from Facebook. Jesus Christ.
You say that like it's a bad thing. - Daniel W. Crompton
Well, it was a brother this time. Didn't realize anything was wrong. - Jed
I have a cousin who has deleted, re-added, and limited my access to her posts multiple times simply because she and my sister don't get along at all. I've never done anything to her. Well, I did ask her once to not trash my sister in a public post, which pissed her off, but otherwise it's all on her. It's completely random - I never know when I'm in and out of favor. Which is all to say... more... - Katy S
More than anything, it's just odd. - Jed
Yeah. - bentley
I removed all of my homophobic, anti-woman, poor people bashing, hypocritical, conservative Christian in-laws last year and do not regret my decision. My newsfeed is so much better without their hateful crap. - April Russo (FForever!)
WHAT DID YOU DO??? :) - MoTO Boychick Devil

Re: The World’s Email Encryption Software Relies on One Guy, Who is Going Broke - http://www.propublica.org/article...
"In Adam Smith's time it was still quite common to brew beer at home, although not as common as 200 years earlier. The baker, who had an oven, would bake the bread of all people in the neighourhood. People would bring their bread to be baked communally. In the UK there were two kinds of slaughter-houses, private and public, which belonged to public authorities. In the public anybody could slaughter their own animals. The recipes weren't secret, and anybody could do it for themselves and did. In Adam Smith's time guilds were already falling out of favour, in The Wealth of Nations he himself was extremely critical of the guilds. And the year after he died guilds were abolished in France." - Daniel W. Crompton

"I don't disagree with you, I am a developer and almost all my software is free and open source. I get paid good of money for using the software, as the value is not in the software it's in the business and data that the users add, such as storing their exam results, their course content, or their course offering. If Facebook or Google were to open source their software, besides from some people running their own micro-Facebook or Google and public outcry about privacy, I doubt it would loose much money as the value is not in the software it's in the way Facebook leverages the software and the data. His issues stem not from him giving the source away for free, his issue stem from not not finding a sustainable business model which pays for him to give his software away for free." - Daniel W.

"Indeed GPG4Win and GnuPG are free to download and use. He was paid $170,000 by the German government, I hardly think you can call that gratis. He also offers technical support for a fee, this code is again released as free to use." - Daniel W. Crompton

"In Adam Smiths time were open, anybody could become their own butcher, brewer or baker. The information was free to use for your own purposes." - Daniel W. Crompton

Re: The World’s Email Encryption Software Relies on One Guy, Who is Going Broke - http://www.propublica.org/article...
"It's not free as in gratis, as RMS likes to say, it's free as in freedom. You are free to change the code and use it in ways not originally intended. You are even free to sell it, as long as you preserve the freedom of the software, meaning the source must be open. Neither the butcher, the brewer, or the baker use a proprietary closed technique so you can take their techniques and apply them without giving them money." - Daniel W. Crompton

iterative progress - Tina Chase Gillmor
I give Microsoft a last chance every two years! - John Taschek
hahahha - Scott Jones
email "bucket of crap" - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have to use Exchange and the iOS app works very well and very fast. Notifications are good because the app uses something called "Focused" which somehow figures out what's important, mostly based on your contacts. - Alex de Soto
The Outlook IOS and Android Preview work with pop, exchange, gmail - John Taschek

I don't think the UI is better than Google's own -- it's a few functions that make the difference (which are part of user experience). But it's just fascinating -- it's like email is getting new life - John Taschek
He's heating up, People - Tina Chase Gillmor
*Ding* - J.C. Bouvier
iOS Outlook has "Focused," emails from your contacts, and "Other" which is everything else. "Quick Filter" shows: Unread, Flagged and Files (with attachments). - Alex de Soto
did my tech crunch link go out. Usually more folks in this chat - Tina Chase Gillmor
Aren't Surfaces making a splash? Their NFL partnership seems to be going very well - Tom Guarriello

+100 Keith, Nadela said as much in his keynote comments; platform agnostic, experience centric...if he's serious, they've certainly got the runway... - J.C. Bouvier
Tom: only relative to past failure. Still too small a business, and if software is the futur, hardware is a distraction - Keith Teare

J.C. there aren't enough people who care about FLAC to matter. NOT A SINGLE ENTREPRENEUR at Techstars in San Antonio was carrying a Windows Phone. It's totally dead and not coming back. - Robert Scoble
39% gross margins...crazy talk. - J.C. Bouvier
Not everyone has to do 18 billion a quarter like Apple ... 5 or 10 with a software business are nice, too. - Johannes Siemers

FLAC is nothing special. apple lossless is equivalent; uncompressed is only twice as big - Kevin Marks

If there is a full Apple TV in stealth mode, now is the time to push it forward - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Xaomi is doing OK - Kevin Marks

Scoble switched back - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Kevin, I'm w/you, I'm not a real FLAC guy, just saying... - J.C. Bouvier
And China market is not proving as price sensitive as was commonly assumed. As China's economic growth continues, Apple's 40 new stores there will be hugely productive. - Tom Guarriello

Samsung still have a chance as their new Galaxy looks a carbon copy of the iPhone - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Agreed... Samsung kinda blew it. The phone is well designed, but the data flows are out of control. Google eats up all of my data every month. - Frank Paynter
Its also about how much powerful and intelligence the skunkworks that a comapny has. - Arnie Klaus
Howdy geek friends - Laura Norvig
plane - Kevin Marks

Ding! The secret "woid": notifications. Tina: You should have a duck come down when that word is first mentioned. - Alex de Soto

There is pattern matching that is meaningful and pattern matching that is bullshit. The former is much more rare than the latter. - Darius Dunlap
link Clive? - Tina Chase Gillmor
men have children too - Kevin Marks
But when it's your own pattern matching, it's very difficult to recognize one from the other - Darius Dunlap
I just posted it tina - Kevin Marks
you'e both right - Tina Chase Gillmor

a "male" view - Tina Chase Gillmor
absolutely - Jeff
I've said before, if you are having trouble deciding between a "guy like me" and another person, woman, black man, whatever... Pick the latter, because they had to be better to get where they are. - Darius Dunlap
Friendfeed and the live broadcast are so out of sync for me. There's a delay with the video on Ustream or with Friendfeed. A seven second broadcast delay? Maybe that's a good thing. - Alex de Soto

Good point Tina. - Simon Benvenutto
VC look for "strong" founders. But what does a "strong" founder look like? - Tina Chase Gillmor

I recall Adam said he would choose Json over XML if he did it all over again - Michael Roberts
more show titles? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Notifications use json - Robin Jewsbury
XML was an attempted formalization of HTML - Kevin Marks
it failed, HTML keeps going - Kevin Marks
Mmm, surely that was XHTML? - Simon Benvenutto
JSON? - clive boulton
HTML predated XML - Kevin Marks
it was based on SGML - Kevin Marks
++Simon - Frank Paynter
We used XML in 1998, worked with Tim Bray - for us it was the opportunity to connect data without having to centralize - beginnings of the open data movement - Michael Roberts
How about the death of TUAW? - Frank Paynter
Have a good weekend! Seattle or New England? - Alex de Soto
no sportsball predictions? - Laura Norvig
jinx Alex! - Laura Norvig
He's a real Notification Man - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Notifications central because they are micro interface messages (not verbose XML) - clive boulton
Apps are very much me going into the toolbox to find the tool for the job at a given point in time. Notifications have the opportunity to bring that tool to me, when its relevant, depending on whats happening in the world around me. Its contextual. - Simon Benvenutto
How many can they make in the first six months? And how many have they got in inventory? - Frank Paynter
twitter are fairly bulky - Kevin Marks
We need a GG Apple Watch sales pool! - Tom Guarriello
+1 kevin. - clive boulton
1.2 million Apple Watches the first weekend. - Alex de Soto
the amazing thing about the watch is the number of $1000 versions sold - Robin Jewsbury
XML was a big innovation at the time - what's seems to win out is simple - rss was simple - twitter is powerful but simple to use - notifications to me connect things together and are simple - so yes I think they will do well and there is still lots of innovation to be had - Michael Roberts
2 million for weekend. 18 million of the first quarter. - Darius Dunlap
i have to drop at 2:35 - Keith Teare
With a high ASP - $500+ - Darius Dunlap
Scoble: 20, Keith:15, Taschek:?, Kevin :20 - Tina Chase Gillmor

I had said 50 million in a previous Gillmor Gang -- but there was no timeframe - John Taschek
cat does NOT understand that she can't get out of the studio til the show is over - Tina Chase Gillmor
I think it's going to be 12. 15 doesn't sound right. Apple believes in even numbers - John Taschek
xml vs json is like sql vs nosql - Daniel W. Crompton
the difference between markup and interop :) - Simon Benvenutto
old vs new - Robin Jewsbury
original purpose of XML was to separate data from formatting and repurpose the data in cool ways. A librarian's dream but just wasn't used right, IMO - Laura Norvig
why are we starting a fight at the END of the show. Save it for the beginning of the NEXt show - Tina Chase Gillmor
SOAP killed everything - Robin Jewsbury
+1 Laura - Michael Roberts

I'm happy to do this next time and explain the indieweb approach - Kevin Marks
twitter didn't need RSS - Kevin Marks
Tina++ - Darius Dunlap
For the Hoodie - Darius Dunlap
html worked because it was simple - it started really simple then got more complex over time - xml - tried to separate the presentation from the content - Michael Roberts
Thanks everybody! - Daniel W. Crompton
It takes two to have a fight..... - Roger Shepherd
Someone's wrong on the Gillmor Gang - Darius Dunlap
<p>Thanks for the show Gang!</p> - Simon Benvenutto

Great show. Have a great weekend. - Jaoued Ahmed
why not json- thanks Kevin - clive boulton
and - http://fortune.com/2013... - What has been your biggest failure? Funnily enough, I’m going to say XML. Yes, it is a standard, but the vision of a simple easy text format for sharing data between applications across the web which is what I had in mind was corrupted by a disastrously over-complex schema language and... more... - Michael Roberts
great show, thanks everyone! was the most extreme sort of (live) lurker today, burning up my data plan watching on a train on my "tiny" 5S so couldn't be here in #FF as didn't have the foresight to bring another of my iDevices - Jerome Hughes from iPhone
Great reference, Michael! XML can be used in non-web applications. It's not dead, just pining ... - Laura Norvig
(get it? remember Pine email ... oh, never mind) - Laura Norvig
I wrote one of my final papers for my MLIS about XML in the year 2000. I never really learned it all that well, just wrote about the conceptual promise and possible applications! - Laura Norvig

"I like ActiveAdmin and the Arbre DSL, it's reasonably simple to use and easy to create pages. Where there is pain it is in trying to extend it, and the lack of documentation for extending. I recently wrote an extension to create an ical option for download_links. It took a bit of time to finally discover that need to be extended ResourceDSL, Resource and ResourceController." - Daniel W. Crompton

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist!""Education is what people do to you, and learning is what you do to yourself." Original Post from TED: "Education is what people do to you, and learning is what you do to yourself." “Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects... - Daniel W. Crompton

Drug Unlocks Malleable, Fast-Learning, Child-LIke State In Adult Brainvia +Adam Black Original Post from Wayne Radinsky: A way to revert the adult brain to the "plastic", child-like state that enables fast learning by being able to form new connections quickly has been found. A protein expressed in brain cells called PirB in animals and LilrB2 in humans stabilizes neural connections to protect against loss of learned skills or information, and using a molecule called an ectodomain can interfere with its functioning enabling the more "plastic" fast-learning state to return. Ectodomains are membrane protein that normally extend extends through the membrane of a cell into the extracellular space outside the cell. Professor Carla Shatz of Stanford University and her colleagues have discovered a way to revert an adult brain to the “plastic”, child-like state that is more able to form new connections quickly. The technical term “plastic” implies the ability to adapt or shape itself to new... - Daniel W. Crompton

I think the Twitter problem is because Twitter changed its API. Old FF-Twitter connections are grandfathered in to a certain extent, but new ones don't work. You can use Advanced Tweets to import your Twitter here. http://friendfeed.com/advance... - Spidra Webster
