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.

You're my hero.

I mean, its not good to be *that* ignorant, but if you don't know what the meaning one of the two terms ( facebook vs ipo) and its ipo you don't know, well, that's a good sign for society in general.

If you go back in time 12 years or so everyone was so focused on tech ipos, that the whole industry was just focused on that as an end goal, without giving a crap about the actual product.
