apophenia: confused by Facebook

apophenia: confused by Facebook: “But what I don’t understand is why so much of the tech crowd who lament Walled Gardens worship Facebook. What am I missing here? Why is the tech crowd so entranced with Facebook?”

It’s like TV: it’s summer, there’s nothing else on. :) That’s the simple answer. That and a feeling of relief that we finally have someone attacking Myspace’s dominance, because admit it, nobody over 21 likes Myspace, especially not the web 2.0 crowd that was in love with Flickr’s superclean design.
