A technical overview of FriendFeed

For those of you who are programmers/techies, I just posted an overview of FriendFeed's new data storage architecture on my personal blog. Even if it doesn't make much sense to you, we hope you will still appreciate the faster page load times :)

Love is all you need

Roses are red
Violets are blue
'Though liking is nice
Sometimes it won't do

Our "likes" have been popular
and sincerely it flatters
But on this day we focus
On what really matters

So click up some love
to show that you care
The hearts look quite happy
Happiness you can share

Our second annual FriendFeed ski trip

Last week, a bunch of us headed to Lake Tahoe for the second company ski trip in FriendFeed history.

There was much cooking, drinking, and poker.

Also, a few people skied for a short period of time. Between meals.

friendfeed.com - Now available at https://

I travel a lot, but never want to be too far from FriendFeed. So, for those of you who want a little extra security and privacy, especially while abroad, now there's https://friendfeed.com.

That extra "s" is for "security" (and "savings"! https://friendfeed.com is free ;)
