"Don't kid yourself. It works exactly how they want it to."
Most of this thread is above my pay grade, but somehow, what is going on with Facebook and
I was watching an episode of Homeland (S5)...SPOILER ALERT...when 1300 CIA files were
downloaded during a hack from a guy that did webcam porn, which got out of control, and the
guy who did the hack for fun against a radical Muslim group was faced with the significance of
what he found. He gave it up to a radical journalist who went on TV with it...CIA got scared,
US-German relations got strained, and the other guy who was in the room said,
"She (the journalist) is going to make a lot of money over this, why can't we make money as well?"
His response struck me...
"Go make your money doing porn...this is information, information is FREE!"
Facebook Under Fire: This attitude towards information is very similar to what is being said on CNN, MSNBC--senator(s) (Ed Markey), analysts, with the conclusion: Big monopolies need to be broken up...
Your personal information has been compromised! Zuckerberg knows exactly what is going on
and his response was weak at best. Power corrupts...this is no difference than big railroads!
Go back to 1998...this article about Microsoft before Facebook or any other company related
to the Internet was even in our consciousness might have been 20 years ahead of the curve;
