The Day After
Mississauga, Ontario

"Few things are as democratic as a snowstorm.”"- Bern Williams


So the snow storm came and the snow storm left. But not without leaving us 15 cm of white manna, stranding some early commuters, and giving some a headspin.

Sunday morning was a mess. As early as 6am, you could hear neighbors pounding on white snow while their kids were breaking fresh downpour as if they were creme brulee. It was a melee but a quiet one. Except for the sound of plastic shovels and snow being shoveled to the curbside everyone just wanted some space to have their cars out of their garage.

Ours was outside of the garage already. All I had to do was unearth Trixy from half-a foot of white dust :).

***********

So my personal dilemma and impasse on my Facebook shutdown has passed. I didn't take my profile down. I just had to tweak some security and privacy knobs and chose which ones to show and which ones I didn't want to. Later in this entry, you'd know why.

I was able to do it in Twitter. But I'm not sure if one can really shut it down or delete one's own profile in Facebook.

Even the founder of Facebook wants some privacy.

There were a whole bunch of manila envelopes taped shut, clearly sealed, and I did not open those,”
he said.

What about some of our private purchases Mr. Zuckerberg? Weren't they suppose to be out of advertisers' prying eyes? But you guys wouldn't?

Oh, finally Facebook gave in
.

Under mounting pressure from its community and various consumer privacy groups, Facebook has moved to scale back its plans to publish accounts of its users' purchases and other commercial actions publicly to their friends. As of late last week, Facebook users must now proactively consent to alert friends to their actions.


And maybe because of these recent news, some guy in HK just rewarded them and wants some $60Million in the game.

Let Mr. Li Ka-shing sign up in Facebook first :).

**********

In case you were hiding under a rock for the last decade, Mr. Li Ka-shing - funny that his name an onomatopoeia synonymous with money, is no 10 in the World's Top Richest Men. Ka-ching!

Speaking of Twitter, here's CSI solving a crime using our most beloved social networking site...



"Some people just don't value privacy."
"They don't expect privacy, they value openness".

What do you say Mr. Zuckerberg?
