I'm in the camp of "watch everybody" -- they make a good target market.

Sums it up really well. Successful people have a tendency to actively "make time" for conversations as well; meaning they don't squander those choices on people that provide so little value it would waste that decision. I only know this from being completely ignored by successful people -- at least until they realize "who I am" mwahaha...

There's only one reason motivational "bootcampers" make any money... Entitlement breeds easy street success desires. Hope sells.

i think it's best to not have an F8, shareholders might get cranky if the wrong thing is said...

I can see it now - every PR, marketing, social mediaite, facebook power user, and twitter junkie reading this right now is all rageheavy because they swear up and down that they contribute SO MUCH to the tech industry ecosystem, when at the end of the day, if it wasn't for the actual tech industry people -- they wouldn't have a platform to stand on... that's just an assessment in general -- but it applies heavily to Hollywood. Utterly senseless and useless people with "great ideas" breaking into the tech industry with a Keynote, and seeking a CTO/co-founder, networking through the ranks with all the other useless, seeking out Angel and VC like a free lunch, just to end up hitting mechanical turk or craigslist to get their shit show on the road to justify the money pit they've created... I'm not bitter.

The only indicator of success in an ideal startup space: making a product that doesn't suck that people use.
The indicators of success in this startup space: who funded you, who you know, which parties you went to, how many rounds you've raised, how many pivots you've got under your belt, what font you used in your logo, whether you'll get hyped by Scoble or some useless pundit...
Shit needs to change.

This sums up pretty much exactly why I don't attend, and don't feel regret, for missing this "magical adventure"; that and I don't much like the idea of doing acid... or seeing men in loin cloths. Mostly, I don't like the idea of seeing men in loin cloths.
Art's always neat, and should be encouraged, sure - go where you need to be inspired. But if that somewhere includes a desert, sans any natural or modern access to water? Consider yourself beyond smart and inspired. Sure, survival's easy when you have 20,000 peers around you...unless they're all shroomed out dehydrated ravers that think their fancy A-Team style RV is the next biggest thing next to "runied fresco" for pop art contributions to society.
Not to mention BM is this (now) contrived event is sponsored in-part by Pepsi, isn't it? I'll save my hijacked event patience for crap like comic-con... maybe I'll try to attend one of those for a change instead.

4 years, 11 months ago on Which one is better? FriendFeed or LiveFyre? Let's talk about it.
it's a little confusing; but if topic titles are right; it'd be less
Nice; and you can drag the breakouts around to change their order....
I could do this all day.
yea; this is a REALLY good feature
that's pretty damn awesome.
Thre breakouts stack up, one on top of the other in the right
@naor it creates two breakouts in the timeline
It's a topic breakout.... kinda like a private thread associated to a thread
It's a topic breakout.... kinda like a private thread associated to a thread?
Breakout session of LiveFyre is a great concept.
The whole "Breakout" feature is pretty bad ass though.
with hints of google wave.
So... this is a topic-based chat thread
I\'m failing to see how this is different than the use of a phpBB
