  • Here's the list. #
    • Mark Zuckerberg. #
    • A public corporation.#
    • 60K employees. #
    • Servers, software, other tech.#
    • An advertising platform.#
    • A user community.#
    • Connections to the rest of the web.#
    • All the content -- video, images, posts, comments, live events, current and past.#
  • When journalism refers to "Facebook" I don't think they're ever clear on which Facebook they're talking about.#
  • Each of the different Facebooks are limited by the others. #
  • But if you are aware of all the different things "Facebook" is, their stories are usually mush. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
