You make a great presentation, but don't really present a great reason why it's really "bad." This is how Facebook has figured out how to monetize its user base (you and everybody else). Is this a bad thing? Hard to say... it's just a different model, not necessarily a bad one. You don't like it because you're having to pay for something that you used to get for free, so his argument is bound to be biased. Facebook will say it's the only way they know how to make money, so clearly they are biased... so, we're kind of at an impasse.
- Too bad we missed that Dungeons & Dragons presentation you mentioned. We know some people who could use a +5 bonus to their Intelligence score right about now. :)
