When I'm bopping through my Google Reader or MobileRSS on my iPhone or iPad, I often get annoyed at posts that only show the summary. I don't like having to leave the application I'm in, open another window, etc.. But, I totally understand where you're coming from here and will try to keep that in mind and continue to click through. Thanks for opening my eyes to the other side of the feed. :)
I have great clarity of thought and fantastic game-changing ideas when in the middle of a good bike ride or run. Unfortunately, like Matthixson, my short term memory also sucks and by the time I get home, I've lost it...either that, or it doesn't seem as cool as it did when I was amped up on endorphins. :)
Well said, Jess. Of course, SOMEONE has to be first to give the more perhaps thoughtful or deliberate people some thoughts to weigh against. Anne Margulies (for those who don't know her, she was the CIO for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and is now at Harvard) used to talk a lot about being a "fast follower" as opposed to the first out of the gate. I thought that was a good way of putting it and a logical way of embracing and implementing newer technologies (especially for larger organizations with a lot at stake). Being a leader or expert in a space doesn't always mean that you're first. Most of the time, I think it's quite the opposite.

Great post - and something I think about often in terms of privacy. It sometimes baffles me frantic people get about the invasion of their privacy and how Facebook or Google might use their information to tailor advertising specifically to them or use their image for a marketing piece. I say, "Bring it on!" Ads are around. They've always been around. Before DVRs we used to often sit through them on television. Shampoo for long luxurious hair when I had a bowl cut. Car advertisements in the middle of Family Ties when I was still 6 years away from having a driver's license. If Facebook can gather from the things I post that I'm into exercise and international travel and wants to put an advertisement in the sidebar for a pair of fantastic running sneakers that help support your ankles as you navigate the bumpy streets of Israel before I head there in September, go for it. I've got nothing to hide. :)
