Scoble on FriendFeed vs. Facebook

He sees the two services as analogous, but one is open and the other is closed. He also thinks that Facebook's walled garden + Microsoft's search = locking Google out of the web. I think he goes a little over the top here, but you be the judge:
Can the open public Web fight back? Yes. It’s called FriendFeed. Notice that FriendFeed replaces almost all of Facebook’s killer features with open ones that are open to Google’s search.

So, now, do you see why I’m so interested in FriendFeed? It’s our only hope to compete with Microsoft’s new “buy enough and keep it closed” search strategy.
