F8 Facebook!

Mark Zuckerberg goes for real time customer profiling and the world rejoices? How mad has TC (http://techcrunch.com/2011/09/22/button-down/) gone?

With this move by Facebook, more than by anything else, it should become clear that Facebook (or Google, btw) cannot be the place we store all our data. But it will not become clear. Why should people wake up suddenly after millennia of following strange heroes (Germany being a major source …).

This information Facebook aims to gather for their users is great. The way user profiles will be presented on Facebook is the right approach.

It is just not for Facebook to have that data.

Yes, obviously Google is only interested in over inflated auctions, not in cheap buyouts. But then with IBM - they seemed to have learned from the first miss.
Update: It since got apparent that Google wants to acquire patents for defense. But they seem to be thinking about very targeted defense, against Microsoft, Apple and Oracle. Not generally against a larger community of patent holders. Therefor the logic is that working together on acquiring patents is not helpfull, as usually everyone in the party gets license rights. Only patents which those 3 (or others they have identified) are helpfull. Not sure if this is a good strategy, but we will have to see ...

now i know what's missing in G+: the ability to expand / reduce the level of detail. Robert Scoble owns my Stream by mass of output - and there is no click to reduce his musings to one liners ...

As a workaround I use the vi-keys "j" and "k" to scroll article by article back and forward.

And here is another one: when i scroll down in my Stream, and not being in full screen makes the effect even worse, I am looking at 30% of my screen carrying a lot of text that is embedded in white left and right
