What to do about FriendFeed?

FriendFeed logo

So, like the good wee social media sheep that I am, I just [signed up for FriendFeed]( And I started entering all my social media sites. And then I realised that this all seemed very familiar. I was duplicating something I’d already done. I’d entered all this data before..
The problem is that I already, in effect, have a FriendFeed, built using the [Movable Type Action Streams plugin]( You can see it in detail either on the sidebar of this blog, or on [a page of its own]( You can even subscribe to it as [an Atom feed](
Now, I though this is what all the work on opening the social graph was meant to solve. What I really want to be able to do is point FriendFeed over at my Action Streams feed and say “there you go. That’s where it is”. And then FriendFeed just sucks it in and I’m done. 
Any chance, do you think?
