@annedreshfield Oh Anne probably knows by now that I'm a 4sq addict. That said, I think their recent changes are decent, at best. They've clearly tailored the experience to include and retain new users (i.e. explore and all the social pressure to connect with friends, adding a bio to your profile, etc.). But, deep down the best tool for marketers hasn't changed at all. A check-in is a targeted ad placement. It is and it always will be. With every check-in your are broadcasting a place, and sometimes vouching for it. With the addition of list and to-dos, it's easier than ever to see a friend's ad (check-in) and save it as a to-do for later on. Discounts and perks are cool, but until staff at these places are trained on what to do the point is kinda moot. I've tried to redeem a 4sq special at a few places and have been met with blank stares. Not cool.

@annedreshfield Yea, I actually saw a great video on BBC about New York Vs. San Francisco in the tech space which brought up some of these same points: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjv4aKsfiII

I'm all for Schultz, and I really hope the Rangers land him, but I can't help but think this might be another Gilroy episode. Weren't people just as high on Gilroy when he was a UFA? As for MDZ, I couldn't agree more with dealing him for a scorer. Maybe MDZ, Dubi + draft pick for Ryan?

@JTDabbagian @jennalanger Haha, ok ok, maybe the naked thing isn't good strat. I do have an amazing, once in a lifetime proposal. Jenna, I'll give you $5 if you casually work a high-kick into your talk. Maybe for emphasis? I don't know. I'll need video evidence, of course, but if you pull it off you can expect a Lincoln on your chair Friday morning.
@jennalanger word on the interwebz is that you're going to picture everyone naked? Any truth to this rumor? haha, good luck!
@_erica it's the same as getting up for work!

@Corbett Barr hell yeah, buddy. come through anytime. would be cool to catch up.
Fun fact: I can drink, talk and type at the same time. I'll be there. Hey @CorbettBarr can you make it?
No chance Scott laces up instead of Kreider? I hope not. We need to focus on making plays and taking shots, not getting suckered into BS. Can't wait for tonight.

Great post @JMattHicks . Life,forinstance was one of the first blogs I came across while interning at Livefyre. Since that time I've interacted with hundreds of bloggers and I can honestly say that @Lori 's community is second to none. Amazing energy. Amazing empathy. And a pure joy to read. Keep it up Lori and I'll make sure to chime in more (I promise!).

@jennalanger Wow, that's a great idea. Next SF fyrebash should be a GG park bbq / Ocean Beach bonfire combo. So fun.
@jennalanger WHAT! That image is our fb cover photo and the cover for this post! Check it. http://twitpic.com/8woxj3
@Berny Great to hear! This sounds like a +1 for @JMattHicks and @dharait

@richescorner Thanks for the love, Richard. We wouldn't be here today without bloggers like you. We appreciate the support!
@jennalanger @scottcaldwell So picture 7 Grand, but make it about 30x bigger. Now remove all the walls. Keep the old fashioned in one hand, but here, take a free beer and glowstick in the other. Got it? Now make your way through the fire dancers and bonfires. Get to the drummers yet? Good. Jump around. Here's another beer.
