    Touchgraph (Facebook power grab) 

    Disclaimer from Touchgraph that Facebook has boxed them out via API & TOS changes

    Touchgraph was easily my favorite F*book app ever. But whether you’re a company like Touchgraph, or just an individual like you or me, when you build your home on somebody else’s property, you always have to be prepared to wake up one morning to discover that your home and your belongings don’t exist anymore.

    F*book is a proprietary, closed platform that changes its TOS to suit it’s marketing & monetization interests. You are not the customer, you are the product being sold at the slaughterhouse auction.

    Cyberspace: Progressive, or Repressive? 

    I was chatting with Liz Flynn & Alyssa Arney last night, and Alyssa commented on Instagram’s re-installation & perpetuation of stereotypical Western beauty standards. Later I ranted about Facebook’s trampling of Civil Rights. And of course you can always count on the YouTube comments section for an enormous dose of racism, homophobia & misogyny. I tend to think of Cyberspace as a progressive & empowering place, filled with knowledge, ideas, connection & innovation. But it sure makes a great platform for all that oppression that we’ve struggled so hard for so long to move past. Or maybe it’s wrong to blame all that on Cyberspace. Maybe Cyberspace just holds up a big mirror to who we are.

    The Zucman of Argentina 

    I thought my mom and I were the last Zucmans on earth. Even though we’re pretty hard to find in America, it turns out that Argentina is crawling with Zucmans, like “Cousin Yolanda” here. Unfortunately none of them speak English… and I don’t speak Spanish. I’ll have to arrange a translationfest with mom and finally meet the family!
