A nice piece of writing

This is a pretty funny and interesting article on MSNBC about yet another lawsuit against Facebook. Now you all know my feelings about Facebook, so I won’t go into them again. But this article illustrates pretty well why I’ve never updated my status, and never will.

Here’s the best quote from Helen A.S. Popkin’s article:

“Frankly kids, suing Facebook for violating your privacy is like going to a kegger at the Devil’s house, then waking up on the front lawn the next day hung over, naked, missing your soul ...and surprised.”

I miss being able to turn a phrase like that.

I'm using it less and less these days... as it gets scarier and scarier.

Liebchen - I thought the same when I read it. The truth rings clear.

LiLu - You may, as is often the case, be an opinion leader.
