Hmm. Is this how I make it point the other direction? No, it strips out the HTML link. link, darn you, link!

That link gets me to an error page that says "profile not found".

Oh! Hah, okay, I am a noodlehead. Well, and also, all the examples used usernames, not mad long strings of numbers.

Ahah, that worked. But when has Google ever given me cause to believe that "your.username" maps to "106580215677539022712"?

Perhaps there is some way to tell it "no really, use my username?" Flickr did that, which I found sort of odd.

So, umm, what's this buzz thing?

Oh, hmm, sure, maybe it's guarding my privacy, so you can't tell what my email address is from my profile. That makes sense.

Buzz is Google's new social-network app; I saw it described as "like facebook but without apps" and it's all about glomming (well, if you want to glom). So, I can say "that's my flickr, and that's my livejournal" (okay, the latter was harder than I expected) and it automatically aggregates them all as Things I Post, and lets people comment on them more like livejournal.

It seems to have gotten rolled out to (some? most? all?) gmail users over the past couple of days, though it's the sort of thing that if you never click on "yes, enable this" it shouldn't bother you.

I understand what it is better than I understand what Wave is (though apparently I'm not supposed to think Buzz and Wave are at all alike, so maybe that's just because I don't understand Wave even more than I thought. :) )

Does it deal with acls at all, or does it only grab public content?

At the moment it's just public content.
