"… what FriendFeed 2.0 suggests is the capture of the sense of the moment. Like a Kennedy press conference or the incredible rhythm trills of Lennon on the roof in Get Back, we're seeing something electric and tangible appearing out of nothing. I dive in and swim in the current, swooping from swirl to eddy, then into direct communication and back to the world I've left behind for a moment. It still takes several moves to accomplish a single task, but the handwriting is on the wall and the time is near when we can pick up where we left off months ago."
Dive in and swim in the flow from swirl to eddy… jump to direct communications…and later… pick up where we left off months ago. This hints toward an interesting way to intelligently filter and manage near-real-time flows in terms of relevance, context… AND … time.
