Photographers All Over Google Buzz

Photo Credit: Naixn So, are you using Google Buzz yet?  Are you looking to get your fix of images and interact with some photographers rather than get the typical tech mumbo jumbo?

FriendFeed Goes on Steroids (aka Real-Time)

I can hear a million keyboards typing away  writing a similar post as I am writing now. Regardless, I still wanted to share my first impressions of FriendFeed in Real-Time.
