Facebook generation: 10 tech revolutionaries
Contribute profiles those redefining the power and face of philanthropy

JOE: When you look at Facebook and social networking in general, it sort of heralds a fundamental change in how community works online. Before social networking, before Friendster, community online was very niche and very disconnected. You had Star Wars fans, and they got online and found other Star Wars fans, and their identity was sort of a handle. They were Hans Solo, or whomever. But it wasn’t them and there was no real connection to their real life. Then Facebook came along, and it’s about real people and real lives. A person’s profile contains his or her real photo and a real name. To convince your friends that I’m you would be pretty much impossible. Facebook creates this very trusted identity. And so what you’ve got now with Facebook is what (cofounder) Mark Zuckerberg likes to call the social graph — people connected to other people’s friends. It’s a map of social connections. What that allows you to do is to take things that are real-world and put them on this space and have them work far, far more efficiently.

Yeah, and once they own your network of friends, they own you. No thanks, I'll take my plain old fashioned WB please.

Lambs with creamy-white fat tend to be younger. Avoid meat with crumbly or yellowish fat unless you’re specifically looking for an older animal.

Posted the link about Facebook generation. Reminds me of a mall we have in Dallas with an ice rink in the center, and coffee shops, restaurants, cafes, around the edges. Just like a town square. Christmas Carolers too, but if you carry in a protest sign they call the security guards. We can change Wealth Bondage from inside, sort of. Rev Billy does his interventions in Starbucks, I believe.

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us--don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring blog!

He favors his left leg. I'd start there if I were you.

(First dibs if you can't take him down.)
