I agree emphatically with this post, which is the main reason for my long form quote below. Read on!
In tech media, this has been treated as if a full-scale replica of Machu Picchu had been discovered on the far side of the moon. Marvel at these “spectacular” features of the leaked Facebook iPad app, revealed!
- It does everything you can do on Facebook.
- Except on an iPad.
But just when you thought it could not get any less exciting, Facebook blocked the iPad app, prompting a hacker to develop a whole new app called FaceForward, the sole purpose of which is to allow you to use the leaked Facebook app. FaceForward will also be blocked and another hacker will make another Facebook-iPad-app-enabling app which will also be disabled. This supposedly is sticking it to Facebook, though, if you think about it, Mark Zuckerberg isn’t wasting hours trying to unlock a Facebook iPad app that will be available to everyone in a few days.
There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
