What a great introduction to Flock! I just heard about it for the first time at CLA this weekend at a presentation about Zotero, which also works with Flock.

Great podcast, Aloha!

I think it's great that you can use Firefox extensions in Flock!

At first I was bemoaning losing my Firefox extensions, then I learned you can use them (I think you just have to re-install them within the Flock browser). Excellent.

Aloha, clear enunciations! Flock really sounds interesting, I look forward to watching your screencast next.

Thanks for your comments everyone! Israel - yes, I was certainly excited to see that Firefox extensions work with Flock, although I do believe that you have to re-install. I mean, who can live without the TMZ toolbar?
