How to follow me on FriendFeed

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 by Dave Winer.

I'm designating FriendFeed as my backup, when Twitter goes down, you can catch my stream, uninterrupted, over there.  Permalink to this paragraph

Here's how to follow me on FriendFeed. Permalink to this paragraph

1. Open an account on FriendFeed, or sign in to an existing account. Permalink to this paragraph

2. http://friendfeed.com/davew  Permalink to this paragraph

3. You should see a "Subscribe to Dave Winer" button below my name. Click it. Permalink to this paragraph

4. When Twitter goes down, you can get my full stream, uninterrupted, at FriendFeed. I won't be able to tell you that when Twitter is down, so try to remember it. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

5. If you prefer to use a different service, let me know, and I'll try to set it up so you can follow me there. If you can set it up yourself, here's the OPML version of my stream (the source), and the RSS feed derived from the OPML. Pretty sure I'll release the OPML Editor-based tool I'm using to manage the stream.  Permalink to this paragraph
