Liam Stacey wrote vile things. But do you know why he went to jail? "All the TV and newspaper reporters, columnists and opiners quoted his first tweet ("LOL f*** Muamba. He's dead. #Haha" – Stacey didn't use asterisks) and referred vaguely to "racist tweets" after that. But what were they? Did the reporters know but choose delicately not to repeat them? Or did they not know? Do the columnists who applaud the sentence know? Or have they – as I suspect – just seen the bowdlerised media, like the rest of us, and are satisfied with the hazy summary? What terrifies me is that people are nodding happily all over the country, pleased to see a clampdown on internet trolling at last...Anyone who's pleased to see a person jailed for a piece of writing, without bothering to seek out the precise words that were deemed illegal, should be ashamed of themselves." #liam #stacey #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #media #democracy #politics #troll #outrage #blind #web #social #twitter #vulgar #uk #pub

The reddit discussion thread with over 1000 comments relating to The Guardian's decent, but still pandering or conservative article about Liam Stacey. Ridiculous that this guy is going to jail in a first world country like the UK. #politics #reddit #outrage #discussion #debate #social #media #twitter #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #democracy #failure #blind #troll #web #vulgar #uk #pub

Article says "When people write critically about Facebook, they often say that “you are the product being sold,” but I think that by now we all get that...Thus it is a critical choice of any adult as to where they will perform their free labor. Tens of millions of people made a decision to spend their time with the simple, mobile photo-sharing application that was not Facebook because they liked its subtle interface and little filters. And so Facebook bought the thing that is hardest to fake. It bought sincerity." This is complete BS. As commenter, TEDPAVLIC, states, "wasn't the original (sincere?) point of Instagram was to be bought by a company like FB? They weren't making any money. They were just developing good mobile software (whose web presence depended on _other_ websites) that could be easily plugged into a larger beast. Seems to me like they were begging to be bought. I'm guessing there was a decent return on that investment. So is Instagram that "sincere?" Wasn't Instagram meant for exactly this?" #stupidity #disingenuous #lies #sheeple #lemmings #social #media #mass #journalism #bullshit #selling #out #instagram #Facebook #pub

As the subtitle says, "C'mon, we all know you're not really going to delete it.". Or at least almost all these people will move on to another ethically identical product or come back to Instagram in the future. Finally, these people are posting this on Twitter...LOL. And how many have a Facebook account they use more than once a month? of these people #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #society #outrage #hypocrisy #social #media #twitter #attention #whores #ethics #web2.0 #Facebook #instagram #pub

Fred Wilson, some VC who is affiliated with Twitter and Foursquare is acting like he gives a damn about ethics. He's working with companies that are just like the companies he is damning. #hypocrisy #disingenuous #lies #elitism #leader #social #media #scum #journalism #pub

Insane to see how in-depth the organizing of "fandom" goes. Also, this links to the 50+ page google doc treatise dealing with what features the "fandom" community would like from Pinboard. The treatise is also in response to the mass exodus from Delicious after AVOS revamped the site. #amazing #social #media #business #marketing #undecided #interesting #delicious #fandom #treatise #collaboration #optimism #inboard #pub

"To put the acquisition in perspective I pulled together data from a selection of 30 notable internet acquisitions over the last 10 years, from Broadcast.com to OMGPop to see if Facebook/Instagram for $1 billion was as crazy as everyone thinks. (I left out companies without public purchase prices or user stats.)" He even uses companies like Zappos and Skype...you know...companies with actual revenue models and/or profitability.

Seems to be trying to be legit and web 2.0-ish compared to the usual file hosting sites or even say Mediafire, Rapidshare, or Hotfile. It looks sleek, has reddit buttons, official browser extensions, CLI, even desktop apps made with Adobe Air. #file #hosting #interesting #web #2.0 #social #media #unsure #pub

A little while back I built Fuck Yeah Spotify (http://fyspotify.appspot.com) as an experiment in music discovery - it was designed to aggregate the top 20 tweeted Spotify albums each day. #steal #automation #linkbait #algorithm #web #app #2.0 #Social #media #pub
