On Friday, as you may know, I made Podcatch.com public. It's a quick way to find a great podcast to listen to, now. Without subscribing. The list of feeds is curated, it comes from my Facebook friends. In that I think it's a prototype for how social networks can be used to create new flows that aren't complicated or hard to use or appreciate. Show More Summary

I stopped sending my env-econ.net posts to my facebook account (I'm sure some of my facebook friends get annoyed by them... some "friends", right?).

A growing number of my friends have taken it a step further, and I won't stand for it.

It takes effort to be a real friend and to find a true friend. I have many people in my life and many sets of friends, but there are only few that I consider to be true. My friends are more than an "accept" button on Facebook, and over...Show More Summary
