Facebook guys say: “We are not going to help you close a deal, but Facebook is a social utility that is relevant in many contexts, including business...As you get older, there is this huge tapestry of your life, with many inflection points from where you went to school and the jobs you had, and as more and more people connect with you, it rapidly increases the utility." Ummm....let me translate. Facebook has no purpose: the more doublespeak you have to engage in, the less purpose you have (and the less facelifts matter).
—hahaha, pwnage. I don’t know if I agree completely with Facebook being purposeless (it’s certainly not without value), but I like Umair’s style.
Also worthy of note:
So I've decided to use this blog to open-source my daily notes a little bit. The point is for us all to be able to make better sense of the discontinuities that confront us. As time permits - hopefully every couple of days - I'll be posting the articles, essays, and blog posts that have made me think the most, and try and draw out the themes that emerge from them. I hope you enjoy it - please fire away in the comments and let me know what you think.
This is good news because Umair is a smart guy and we can learn from him. I’m looking forward to seeing more posts like this one.
