Picking your Subscriptions, aka “Friends,” Wisely on FriendFeed

If you are on any social network, you have at one time or another asked yourself (and probably still constantly ask yourself) Who do I follow? If someone follows me, do I auto follow them back? What is the proper etiquette? With A LOT of clatter going on within FriendFeed right now on how much […]

What can I say? My blog was “Louis Grayed!”

Seriously, I don’t even know what to say/write.  I’m in shock!  I was never good at writing or expressing my thoughts in words (hence the addiction to photography), but, here I am getting “Louis Grayed.” Say what?  Franklin Pettit wrote a great explanation of what being “Louis Grayed” is all about. I am honored and […]

Last week I posted my results of a 24 hour experiment I did on FriendFeed. The point was to try and get an idea of those following me on FriendFeed, who was participating. When I posted the results (even while doing the test) I wasn’t sure what I would learn or gain from it. There […]
