20. yep. exactly why i used the analogy of yelling across a crowed bar.

 

i've quit and rejoined facebook a number of times. quit because i don't trust them, and rejoined because my entire family is on there.. and no matter how awesome the alternative, they won't use it. they're on facebook complaining about facebook, when they could be on Diaspora* complaining about Facebook.. but there is no alternative that will penetrate their complacency and inertia. they would rather complain and do nothing.. than simply solve the problem.

much of the outrage over the NSA rings pretty fucking hollow to me in this context. not that i like the NSA spying.. but it got this far.. it got this bad.. because tools, noobs and users want corporations to secure their communications *for them*.

it doesn't work that way. if one wants to send a secure message.. don't fucking use facebook, dumbass.
