Facebook is a publicly held company whose mandate is to make money, that good ‘ole American and British tradition that has never been restricted by mere mortal concepts of monopoly or fair trade. Power always corrupts and no one ever mistakes it for what it is. As for people who win elections, just who do you think is paying for them and buying them off? God bless America. Thanks for the laugh.

I haven’t found that the case since I gave up that addiction. With the advent of texting, FB is kind of redundant unless one wants to publicize.

Microsoft hubris lead to many good things, including disgust in the mind of an individual named Linus Torvalds. That disgust lead to the Linux family of operating systems. Apple is the other obvious case, but they have their proportional share of hubris now…

Facebook’s time is passing. Five years from it will no longer be relevant.
