maybe facebook is finally becoming interesting

People who mainly talk about themselves are hard to be around. Anything that tries to exist just for its own benefit gets to be pretty pointless after a while. It is one of the basic facts of the universe that things are most useful, most significant, most themselves when they point outside of themselves.

It is true of people and it is true on the web. The more you give the more you get. The more you send people away the more they come back. Imagine if google had links only to google. The more facebook points outside of facebook – the more it makes other things useful to me – the more likely I am to use facebook.
