FriendFeed is a great tool for tracking others feeds and posts and comments and such. There are a lot of new tools that do this kinda "lifestream" process, but I am using FF as a first experiment to see how far we can go using only free tools, sites and widgets, and of course FireFox. So like RubyonRails (RoR) I now present FFoFF.

More to come. The uber is the limit. Please add you ideas on that mythical destination in the snowy mountains.
A moment last night in winding down I made a conscious, not easy, choice to go with bits instead of bites. I walked past my shiny new computer several times and admired the flat black screen.

And the pace of the evening never entered the hyper gotta-do-more-gotta-be-more feeling that I get on the web.
There are several open social platforms in flight and my experiment is not meant to conflict with folks doing the real work. Groups like like Marc Canter's OpenMesh and DAPP development teams, these teams are doing actual development. I am working a kludge, using their tools and Google's tools and jamming them together into some kind of personal navigator for the web.
The challenge: define the killer app, the uber-browser, the perfect system for managing our internet lives.
As I grow into new services, check out many, abandon many and stick with a few I intend to document what I find. I am asking the same information of my colleagues. In fact, that is what the Global Social Media Conversations room on Friendfeed is supposed to be about: define, refine and collaborate over the social mesh.
When an apology is necessary, the 4 Part Apology is a great way to help a person look beyond the actual incident to the consequences of behavior. By defining those consequences and choosing a different behavior, both individuals remain thoughtful and supportive rather than angry and resentful.
I had a dream. And Apple was part of that dream. And Dell was a MAJOR part of that dream.
