The Facebook Decay

The Infuriating Innocence of Mark Zuckerberg

Speaking of Facebook, I'm far from even making a dent in many of the articles that have been written about the company in the past several weeks. But I did enjoy this one by Stephen Marche:

The dream of a world of total connection has resulted in unprecedented alienation. The dream of a world of instantly accessible knowledge has drifted into stupidity and lies. We blame Zuckerberg because we can’t stand to blame ourselves. The truth is that we made a deal with Facebook; we gave up our information for free. Unable to bear our own responsibility for the world we have chosen, we have turned the technologists into monsters we can blame.

I largely agree with this.
