    Hahahaha so looking around to guage things out of curiosity there's "MySocialBook" that turns your Facebook history into a book.

    Nope. Nope. Nope.

    Really? That's kinda cool.

    Maybe like a yearbook; I just had terrors of the first few pages being awkward high-school relationships and strange 3am selfies at Whataburger.

    I see you are taking this seriously. 🙂

    ROFL! I never had issues with either of those things...no Facebook for me until halfway senior year in high school, never had a girlfriend in high school (or really ever for that matter), so no drama there, and I've never eaten at Whataburger...

    Kinda. This would integrate stuff like that with other things.



  • Well the Playback Machine senior developer is in the discussion now. So we will get his opinion as to if the kick starter is worth pursuing.

    I don't know if you have any food preference (or limitations) but I suggest you take some time and get a chicken tenders box. Don't worry it comes with the gravy standard. lol

    Not really much of a gravy fan.



  • Coming from the north, little Texan fare is considered to be impressive. @bsouder famously calls them "Whatever Burger".



  • @ajstringham @scottalanmiller Y'all yankees just don't get what all the fuss is about. 😛



  • @MattKing nope. Try eating in upstate NY. We come from a major food state.

    Oh cool, my dad's side of the family is actually from Indian Lake. The food is WAY better up north, no kidding, I was just raised in the south and like my comfort food.

    Yeah, Texans think they know BBQ. They ain't never been to the Dinosaur...which, by the way, was founded in my hometown! World-famous sauce, all from Syracuse, NY.

    I couldn't disagree more. Nothing compares to Rudy's extra moist brisket. Sauce can only do so much to disguise a piece of dry meat. 😉 I do miss Nick Tahou's garbage plates, though. And I'll never like catfish as much as I like haddock.



  • Eww, catfish. The worst of all fish.



  • @scottalanmiller I don't actually mind the fish so much as the cornmeal batter. It's just very... meh. On the other hand, there's a place here called the Catfish Parlor that has insanely good hush puppies. With jalapeno tartar sauce.



  • Rockfish Grill has amazing jalapeno hush puppies.

    RUDY'S!! man I haven't thought of that place in years!



  • @Dashrender said:

    Yeah, Rudy's is the best. The thing about Texas BBQ is there's so much of it... you just have to find the right places. For example, PoK-e-Jo's is great. Smokey Mo's, however is not. The Salt Lick is way overrated in my opinion. I got ribs once there and they were terrible.



  • Everyone I know from the north has been disappointed with Salt Lick.



  • @AndyW There's a Rudys on 290 in NW Houston; save me a drive to Austin now I'm hungry!

    So, I know it's Friday afternoon... but any word back? 😛



  • Wait, am I supposed to be the Playback Machine senior developer? If so, then yes, Kickstarter. Also, it should have all the features and do all the things. If not then, um, disregard this I guess. 🙂

    Alright, let's get a kickstarter started then!!

    I'm not sure where this is going, but I like it. Let me know where i can help!



  • @scottalanmiller said:

    Sounds good, but we should probably make a demo first. We're going to need a lot of data, so let me just download the Internet real quick. I'll let you know when that's done.



  • Ha ha. Actually grabbing Facebook, Twitter and SW data would be easy and a good demo.

    I've got a code base for SW data harvesting so we have a starting point.



  • Do people want to know this stuff? In 2006 I was listening to Britney Spears on Spotify, watching a funny cat video on YouTube and arguing with somebody about England's best midfielder on some forum. In 2007 I was....largely doing the same...In 2008 ditto....

    I don't wanna know!



  • It's about social archeology. It's data about yourself that you've never been able to mine before.
