Semi-crashing today's reading at a Marin Co. writing workshop was totally worth it. I got to hear my friend/mentor Jodi Angel read; I cracked jokes with Jodi's GF and another author we know & love; I reconnected with Ron Carlson, who I studied with in 2010; and I got a photo with Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard out of Carolina.
Friends appeared at our house tonight with a used fridge to replace our dying one. It's a little one, I'm taller than it is, but it will get us by until we can replace it. We are a little befuddled to think that people actually like us :-)
After trying to recreate the Friendfeed experience in other social networks, I've realized it's going to be very hard to do. Facebook is slow and clogs up with notifications. It's designed for a slower pace. Google Plus doesn't scale out to multiple interests of a similar group. Again, notifications are an issue there. Twitter is fast but public.
You can now get a daily or weekly email digest for anybody's feed on FriendFeed. You'll get a daily or weekly email with the most popular posts from that person's feed. To get the email, click the "Email/IM" link at the top of anyone's feed, and select the "Best of day" or "Best of week" email option.
