How I'm celebrating Facebook's IPO

Table of Content

I'm "celebrating" by offsetting my Facebook use with greater use of Diaspora, an alternative that let's you keep strong control over your data. I don't know many people there, but it's more lively (about things I care about anyway) than I've heard described, and I've found some interesting people I wouldn't have otherwise fonnd.

I can't stand Facebook, but I use it to keep up with a few friends and family members. I don't like the low regard its management has for privacy, or for the presumption of a inevitable (but invented) good it provides. But it's easier to do without it if there's a partial alternative. Partial because there's no point replace an invented good with another.

  1. I didn’t think that there was much to celebrate with the IPO. The initiall sale of shares didn’t fare well.
