In a clear example of the asymmetry of power that now exists between Facebook and just about everyone else on the Web, check out the way The New York Times has handed a huge gift to the social networking giant: The Times is requiring that anyone who wants to be a "verified commenter" -- and with that a higher form of commenting privileges -- must a) have a Facebook account; and b) use that account for identity verification.

Bob Lutz, a very conservative (politically) auto exec who led the General Motors project to create the Volt electric car, naively tells the NY Times' Joe Nocera:

"It is inexplicable that the right would feel the need to tell lies about the Volt to attack the president."
