Facebook and Friends

   The Facebook president in need of new friends

Res Ipsa Loquitur

Hope, change, friends. At a certain point in the past few years, Barack Obama and Facebook began to overlap in people’s minds. Not only did Mr Obama’s 2008 campaign demonstrate Facebook’s potency as an electoral tool, it also hired Chris Hughes – a Facebook co-founder – to do the job.

Mr Hughes is a donor to the Obama 2012 campaign. So too is Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, who recently hosted a fundraiser for Mr Obama in her home. Mark Zuckerberg, the company’s principal founder, is one of three American inventors Mr Obama cites when he extols US innovation – the other two being Thomas Edison and Bill Gates.

Zuckerburger should have stayed in school long enough to learn what an economic dislocation is. Balloons deflate a lot faster than they fill.

It's only fitting that Obama refers to Edison - Edison was hardly a mathematician or scientist. He was an absolute douche par exellance (and that's being complimentary).
