Dilution

Was just checking out FriendFeed. It’s superfast and has a smooth, intuitive interface. Not surprising when you look at who built it. But systems like these dig same hole as the social networks and content sprayers, diluting your online identity by sending people to yet-one-more place to track you. It’s tricky because your attention is distributed. But your identity, well that’s a different story.

Inside NPR blog: “almost everything that you can find on NPR.org that we have the rights to redistribute is available through the API.” Looks promising, have not had a chance to check it out yet.
