For those of you interested in either calling in (via Skype or some other phone type) just drop by the Talkshoe page for the Monday to Friday show anytime between 9PM EST (6PM PST) and 9:30 PM. You can participate either in the chat room or talk with me one on one about the topic of the evening. In the meantime here’s a few things that I found of interest in today’s FriendFeed pipeline.
