I... just, wow. Yishan Wong really misses the mark on how I think about privacy, and social user design. Goodness.
I am really fascinated this post by Facebook's +Yishan Wong on why Google+ is broken, partly because it does actually characterise something I'd noted earlier about public posts, but primarily because of its meta-insight into how Facebook people see Google people, and how everything is aligning. For instance, he's posting it on Quora, which is clearly in the Facebook-o-verse. (And G+'s "preview link" is choking on the Quora link because it can't access that site, but I don't know whether that's a bug or not.)
