  1. Facebook is a country and Zuckerberg, the oligarch, is its King.

    You are his subjects, so please genuflect when he enters the room.

    The King is dead.
    Long live the King.

  2. Never been on Facebook. And they send me emails about it every day, trying to lure me in with people they have found from my past.
    Did I mention that I’ve never been on Facebook?
    The email I get the most says “A lot has happened on Facebook since you last logged in.” Which is at least true, since everything that has ever happened has happened since I last logged in because I HAVE NEVER LOGGED IN to Facebook.
    And Facebook? Those references to my sister, or the bass player I played with in 1979, are creepy as fuck and not only do not entice me to join Facebook, but cause me to have to remind myself that driving across the Bay Bridge to perform some amusing horribleness on Facebook HQ is really a very bad idea that I have absolutely no interest in having anything to do with.
