  1. Attention! Attention thievery in progress. But seriously, I think this is the first and probably only time that I have adopted something before you Robert. :) I like it so far. It is a modern equivalent of your earlier clubacca “temple of ego” I think.

  3. I can’t believe that I was on FriendFeed before Scoble, amazing. I may have an invite available for FriendFeed so drop me a line if you want one, cpherbert at gmail.com

  5. Jumped on FriendFeed last weekend, hooking in all of my online presences, and so far so good but a couple thoughts.

    First, if you’ve synched services already, e.g. Tweets going to Tumblr via RSS, you get redundant posts in your FriendFeed page. I wanted consolidation of my social networks but not redundancies.

    Second, if you install the FriendFeed app to Facebook (F8), which I thought seemed reasonable enough, everything is imported to F8. Yes, that’s what it’s supposed to do but my concern is that I have a lot of non-techie friends on F8 who won’t get all of these lifestream posts. Depending on your app settings, your friends will see each discrete post from FriendFeed in your mini-feed, which is a little overboard for most people.

    Maybe I’m not giving my friends enough credit (or maybe I don’t have enough techie friends on F8) but I don’t think they want to see all of those posts to my mini-feed. I know I don’t, I’d rather see posts that my friends think are especially worth sharing. If you want my lifestream, you can view the details via FriendFeed but having it default to full visibility mode when you install it on F8 isn’t for me.

    See what you think Robert since you have a lot of friends on F8, interested to hear the feedback you receive. Thanks.
