I didn't get this error, but I got a different one- but once I agreed to the TOS on the mac AND the iPhone, and rebooted, no issues...could have been luck. now going to play with iOS5. I might have to start using iCal and Apple mail ;)

Just an album of photos I made at the Facebook F8 conference today.

+Mark Zuckerberg sure changed the world today and most of the press reports and folks aren't understanding what's going on here.

Three companies (Facebook, Google, and Salesforce) are going to know everything about everything. That might be scary to you, it is even a little scary to me, but we'll all be willing participants because it'll give us a lot of cool stuff in return.

The old world? You had to go to the news.
The new world? The news comes to you.

The old world? You had to go to Flickr to get photos from your friends.
The new world? Those photos come to you.

The old world? You had to go to Pandora to get music (or iTunes, etc).
The new world? The music comes to you.

The old world? Crappy looking photos and can't look back very far in the timeline.
The new world? You scroll through your life with big beautiful photos.

And on and on.

Anyway, enjoy the photos. More in a little while as I get a video up.

By the way, anyone know who's hands are touching the iPad? That's Washington Post's Chairman, Donald Graham. I had an interesting conversation with him about the future of news. More on that in a second.

ganked from +Chris Brogan this is especially true:

" Final food for thought: Facebook isn't doing anything new, data-wise. If you're creeped out by this, then realize that most of this data is already in their system. They're simply designing a new way to organize it. Sure, stuff like Timeline and Open Graph will let more parts of your life be socialized, but the vast majority of relevant Timeline data like photos, status, likes, etc. is already in the machine."
First impressions from the F8 announcements...

1. Winners: media outlets. Spotify, Hulu, many others. The Open Graph intends to socially enable every possible aspect of your life in as automated a fashion as possible. Who can attract the most eyeballs? The common denominator content providers and big houses.

2. Losers: batch and blast organic marketers. The way marketers are going to get to audiences through Timeline and Open Graph is pretty clearly through Apps. For everything else, you're going to be using the Ads system. All those Likes and other things? They don't appear as though they'll significantly impact this new interface except in the most peripheral of ways.

3. Winners: the popular. Edge Rank has been filtering the real time feed; Open Graph's new Graph Rank will filter the Timeline and access to eyeballs for apps. Marketing will need to reinforce apps with other channels to ensure their success. If you're good at marketing, good at building buzz, good at aggregating crowds, you will win.

4. Losers: the entrepreneurs and independents. If you have no budget and/or no capabilities to promote your stuff - whether you're a content producer, media maker, or developer - you're pretty much screwed. Everyone else who is a better marketer or has a bigger budget is going to run you over.

5. Winners: the data driven. Over time, you can bet that Timeline and Open Graph data will be made available via API. There's a huge bounty available for anyone who can crunch massive pools of data and extract insights from it. Imagine being able to do massive data insight gathering from an entire lifetime instead of just a few status updates and likes.

6. Losers: people concerned about privacy. If you thought managing privacy controls now was tough, just wait till you face an entirely new set for Timeline and Open Graph.

Final food for thought: Facebook isn't doing anything new, data-wise. If you're creeped out by this, then realize that most of this data is already in their system. They're simply designing a new way to organize it. Sure, stuff like Timeline and Open Graph will let more parts of your life be socialized, but the vast majority of relevant Timeline data like photos, status, likes, etc. is already in the machine.

What are your initial thoughts and takeaways from the Facebook F8 announcements?

Playing around yesterday. I don't really like the result, but I have read some more and will get out and "play" a bit today.

(thanks for the reminder)
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."

ā€” Mother Teresa

Whew. It is hard to read posts when someone sends 40 pictures each in a separate entry all morning. Sorry, I had to un-circle. No time.

Love the new updates to G+me. The mute button with out having to expand a post is MOST delicious.
