Facebook Doesn’t Suck


Some friends of mine are discussing how much they hate Facebook, meanwhile last night I met a couple of people I knew in high school at the Rubin Museum of Art (one of them works there).

So for me, yay Facebook!  Woohoo Facebook! I had fun.  Plus, that thing on inauguration day, the way cnn.com had the Facebook status reports running alongside their streaming video was perfection, and one of the things I always imagined the internet could be.  

I have always loved what I called the MSTK3 aspect of the internet, although that is a dated reference.  But I love how on the internet we can all group-critique the world, life, news, etc.  And that Facebook set-up was a perfect use of this very thing. Perfect.  I hope they and others continue to do things like that.

Anyway, I had great fun Eline and Mark, I loved seeing you both.  And the exhibits at the museum were fabulous.  I tried to find a picture of my favorite piece (the Loving Kindness 3rd/4th century piece, which was Eline’s favorite, and she might have influenced me!) but I couldn’t grab the picture from the website.

    Yeah, I’ve always called it that, too.

    I was disappointed that I couldn’t participate in the Facebook thing during the Inauguration, but deadlines demanded that I couldn’t take off, and my office has all “dating/social networking” sites blocked.
