Friendfeed is a portmanteau of “user” and “network”, is a worldwide distributed Internet discussion system.

Pwned!! The line above is the frst line of definition on Wikipedia for USENET.

Ok i know it don’t fit entirely, but from 1979 is quite good. Then we transit from MailingLists to Usenet, Usenet to Forums, Forums to Chat, Chat to Twitter, and then again on .. FriendFeed.

This tought make me tink.. and understand why the evolution of Social Networks after the disgregation of Usenet and Web 2.0 revolution  have for destiny reaggregation and reconstruction. Twitter is doomed? Nope! We only need again our personal Usenet.

Another challenge for Google Reader and Apps

Web 2 a zero — lucio on April 14, 2009 at 11:51 am

There was a time when Google Reader saved us. In the world of web 2.0 it took my bookmarks, rss feeds and tag it , order it and last (but non at least) saved me from “local” rss client. Our life became simpler on reading news, blogs and sharing some of our favorites using tags and outgoing rss feeds. We had also with GReader,  Delicious, Twitter, Facebook … and a rid of Greasemonkey script that help us to sign tag manage and share around big G Reader.

Then something changed.

Social network’s people want to change the paradigm of web 2.0 “create, read, share”.. we want to comment, elaborate, share thoughts.. people want to have a “tumble” to sign what they like and follow the discussion about it .. want to be part of the wave, of the discussion between friends, experts and amateurs around the feeds.

Twitter is the mess of chat on news and sharing , FriendFeed exploit the concept of “like and discussion” taking the order on twitter “pseudo thread”, Facebook copied it and try to have his version of “like” and commenting threads.

But, wait a moment, Google Reader already thought about the feature of adding friends, share, have public and private feeds. It imagined the willing of people to discuss, “share & comment”, mail, blog.. but miss at the point of create a community! And that’s  what FriendFeed is trying to build right now.

Friendfeed is the live feeds visualization and twitter integration, personal rss and services subscription, “virtual feed” aggregation and filtering, grouping and (like all Social Media) definitively is a small “Big Brother” where the lurker has his own pure satisfaction just following a large number of “blogstar”.

I think Google (with his services) is really missing a big opportunity, because the integration of platforms like Google Reader, Google Groups, Google Docs, Google Mail and finally Google FriendConnect can really kick ass of any existing Social Media. I think that they have tech and ideas to build the new FriendFeed-Twitter-Facebook without the need of buying nor of three.

But, will Google take the challenge?

Best quote of the day: Scoble about Twitter and Ballmer

Lots of my friends think that this search behavior will let Microsoft get back into the search game if Microsoft bought Twitter. Heck, Todd Bishop just wrote that too. Unfortunately Steve Ballmer doesn’t understand Twitter (he isn’t on it and probably thinks that’s yet another stupid thing that Scoble uses) so he probably won’t see the value here. Ballmer has done a horrid job at getting Microsoft into the search game, so I’ll be shocked if he wakes up and buys Twitter. Of course just by saying that I probably made Ev and Biz a few hundred million dollars more — if Microsoft and Google get into a bidding war valuations on Twitter could go up to a billion or more. Pretty rich territory for a service that has only 10 million users in the United States.
