Comments on: 5 Things I Learned From My FriendFeed Fast

I strive to steer clear of easily divined points - how am I doing?

I agree with your article. I'm just getting into the friendfeed community, but even messing with twitter and plurk, I need to step back and spend some time just thinking.

Very well written. What strikes me, too, is this growing gap between "normal people" and the possibilities of modern technology. Concerning FriendFeed my opinion is a little bit different: Your experience with it should not change too much as long as you keep on following only a specific range of people. But of course your neighbors, family members and working colleages might make their way into it and "befriend" you. Then the experience with FriendFeed will change a lot...

Hey Marco - you are so connected and such an instant responder that your message gives me hope that I'll make it too. I am taking a ten day sabbatical at the end of next week - going to Alaska to kayak the glaciers for ten days - and I am terrified of being disconnected. I have worked for my company for ten years and have never been out of touch where there is no service at all for ten days - honestly - the longest I've been out of range is a long flight. I'm hoping the social media jitters are gone by the second day. :) If not, i'll be sending smoke signals and asking you to transcribe. Thanks for such a great post. I really enjoy your blog.

(I'll comment on FF too). What a remarkable post. I feel about the same way with regard to FF. It's a great way to learn new things from quite remarkable people. I hope, too, that FF remains essentially what it is today, but you're probably right about its MS future. We'll see. I'm no techie god, but I sure am glad FF is around for me to learn so much more than I would have without it. And yes: you do need to unplug and let it all process.

And probably long before the magic is entirely gone and FF is completely perverted or subverted, most of us who are there now will have moved on to something different and possibly even better. That's the beauty of this type of thing. There's room for improvement and growth and creative people out there expanding on what exists at this moment.

Agreed, especially with #4 and #5, just like all great online communities like The Well or IRC, etc., the magic that is happening at FriendFeed right now probably won't last. So enjoy it while you can! I certainly am!
