Friendfeed is no more. It seems like many moons ago that I spent almost all my social time on Friendfeed. I started a room called The Life Scientists right around the time Friendfeed introduced rooms with no idea if anyone would ever show up. They did and we ended up forming a community that I will cherish for a long long time. Many friendships were made. There were many discussions on a variety of topics near and dear to my heart. Then came the acquisition and slowly most of all left. This day was inevitable, and it has been ages since I visited the site, but I still feel a little down and definitely very nostalgic. My old blog is no more, so all the articles around Friendfeed are also lost. I suppose that blog and Friendfeed represent a period of innocence for a lot of us who cared about science, about open science, and the avenues that might make it work. We’ve all grown older and, hopefully, wiser.
