Do public status updates work for an engineering team?

Apparently many successful software companies have processes where engineers write daily status updates that are publicly visible. Google has a system called 'Snippets' and Facebook has 'Colbert'. Any insiders want to share their experience with such reporting tools? Does anyone know of any resources that describe the pros and cons, nut and bolts of these processes? [more inside]

Why/How did Facebook spam me?

So... FacebookTM sent an email to my email address from someone who I don't know but lives in my general geographical area requesting my friendship. Problem: this email address is definitely not associated with a FacebookTM account. However, there are probably cookies from FB on this computer. Also, this potential "friend" appears to run some sort of digital media consultancy (blech). Question: how did Facebook scrape this email address exactly and why did I get this email? Did this guy pay Facebook to send a friend request to an email address they scraped or is it something more automatic? [more inside]

Stop my phone driving me mad, please!

My BlackBerry (Curve) has a Facebook app. Suddenly (last few days) it's been alerting me whenever there's a new reply to my post, etc. Drives me mad - I just want to be alerted (noise and flashing light) when I get a an email (for my work) and I don't mind the flashing light when I get a new Twitter mention. But this Facebook thing is driving me mad. BUT when I go in to ask it not to alert me to these things on the Blackberry, it stops alerting me on my home email to responses to my posts, etc. When I turn on alerting on the Facebook website, hey presto, they're back on my phone.

Betting it all, and losing, on Facebook

A couple of months ago, it was around the time of Spotify's mandatory Facebook login thing, there was an article from a developer of a music app in which he told a story of basically betting everything on Facebook integration, but lost out when Facebook forged a deal with a rival app and effectively killed off his product. For the life of me I can't find the article. Can you help?
