Just BE REAL. Don't AUTO-ME. And dont SELL at me. Many think Twitter is an advertising platform, well, folks, I guess if the entire web is an advertising platform then go for it, but TwitterSpam and TwitterPorn and TwitterViruses are becoming real and annoying. So by becoming an AUTO-BOT you are injecting your REALness into that SPAM stream. And, as my old dad used to say, "You'll get what's comin to ya."
Use REALTIME, Be REAL not AUTO, Be HONEST about what you are after. If it's just more followers or hawking Printer Ink or Viagra, leave me out.

They do have some of the smartest people in the business. They are devoting a good chunk of their resources to Innovation pure and simple.

Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery. Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for lithium-ion than one deep one. Recharging a partially charged lithium-ion does not cause harm because there is no memory. Short battery life in a laptop is mainly cause by heat rather than charge / discharge patterns.
You can't know it, but you can be it, at ease in your own life. Just realize where you come from: this is the essence of wisdom.
The FriendFeed Global Social Media Conversation ROOM is an initial discussion group for sharing the FFoFF idea and engaging some smart folks in a dialogue about it.
