I am actually BUZZING the shit out of things.  Providing pretty much the same content I provide everywhere else.  If this ever integrates with my phone and becomes a bit easier to use it might be the bee's knees.

Uh, no. Really wish people would stop being stupid and also stop saying that (these are mutually exclusive).

Kinda wish I could opt out after seeing it, though. Maybe it'll be useful later. I don't know.

Also how is this totally different from Twitter?  It's got the Facebook sharing thing, but it seems to be the same purpose.

This article about Buzz automatically setting followers based on previous conversation might explain why someone's following me without my having done anything follow-worthy, but I still don't know who this TS guy is and what communication I had with him.

I need more google friends for this to be worthwhile.  I hardly e-mail people as it is (on account of loser-dom), and I enough followers who ignore me on Twitter as it is.

That reminds me about Iran shutting down Gmail and announcing a free, government email system. Iranians are really paranoid about Google's privacy policy, I guess.

Isn't email already supposed to be only for OLD PEOPLE now, or whatever?

The content however, is still reminiscent of Twitter feeds.

"Oops, there was an error posting your comment. Please try again in a few seconds."

Google's new slogan.

No seriously this seems to be the worst system.

Apparently this has to do with stuff shared from Google Reader, which explains the problem.

I get that using gmail chat too.

I think it's what happens when you type so fast the google spy gnomes don't get a chance to read the message.

Hey, I've been having issues with adding people like ol soulbain on buzz.  Would love to read some of your blogging, but sadly, noshow. 

I'm the guy with the blue shirt and paint on Constantine's profile.  If you need an email, feel free to im me, but I'm not too comfortable throwing up my primary email on my profile.

Google.

Hey Google.

Google how you doing?

Google.

Okay.

Google, let me make this clear.

I NEVER, EVER, EVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, POSITIVELY EVER WANT TO SEE WHAT MY FRIENDS SHARE ON GOOGLE READER. I DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT RSS FEEDS THEY LOOK AT AND I NEVER WILL. I NEVER EVER WANT TO SEE ANYTHING ON MY READER OTHER THAN WHAT I AM SUBSCRIBED TO. EVER.
 :HUGE: :HUGE: :HUGE:
EVER

Thanks. Now can I please turn this off without having to unfriend people on Buzz?

It says you're following me... does my stuff not show up? I don't tend to write much into it, but I do share RSS stuff on the regular. I'm using my Ugly Mug shot, if that narrows it down.

Actually, for whatever reason, all your shared stuff isn't showing on Buzz.  It shows up in Reader, but that's it.
