In the News So, this is apparently a big thing, but because of my perpetual state of total boredom with regards to social networking, I really don't have the will to turn this into a proper item. So, here you go: Facebook is doing its IPO thing. Eh. In any case, lots of new rich people. Maybe the wealth will trickle down this time.

I know Facebook = mass surveillance, but wtf is IPO?

You couldn't just google it, or look it up on wikipedia?

IPO = Initial Public Offering. It means the company is going public, and will have shares available to publicly trade on the stock market.
