Why Facebook Sucks And Other Poop

Facebook is good for the local village idiots that wants to put some pics and text on the web with limited knowhow and resources, and doesn't mind having their privacy raped and left for dead. Tim Berners-Lee says it better -- closed silo platforms fragment the internet. This would be even more punctuated if FB builds their own phone. Not to mention how poorly designed that platform is (i.e.: timeline).

Our only hope is that going public will destroy FB. Investors will pressure them to increase revenues and basically the most efficient way they can is by increasing the number of ads they serve to their users and you know how much users love having their internet cluttered up with a bunch of ads.

Heart felt too bads go out to all of the morons who put money into the FB IPO. A general rule of thumb is wait six months before considering an IPO. Only the banks and the insiders win at the start. Especially too bad to the rumdums that sold their Apple stock to buy FB. They sold low and bought high. And when FB went down, they sold (panicked) and bought back into Apple, which had gone up. Poor fools got ripped coming and going.

Pinterest also blows. Apparently this is big with chicks and, like FB, is a platform silo internet thing, which is helping to destroy the internet. The whole concept is to rape and pillege the internet and bring it within a closed silo. If the internet is supposed to be all about content, then Pinterest is but mindless, regurgitated gibberish. These are simply ad vehicles meant to steal even more of your privacy - doesn't anybody see that?

I wouldn't go this, but sure sounds sinister.

Rants over.

Weird Melvin: The Comic Strip Series is nearing completion - just need to proof read and write the code to create the pdf. So close yet so far. Otherwise, the Spring is going awesome, but it doesn't seem like I'm getting anything done.

Here's more to hate about Kickstarter.

Dude... Loved Snart years ago... Bought everyone I could find and back issues! But, I am extra pleased to see you are still at it, and have the correct view about Facebook and SOPA. I knew there was a brain behind this beer swilling psycho!
