  3. Facebook IPO: The Facts

    As they come in (the technosphere looks like this right now), we will be posting short snippets of important news about the Facebook IPO here on this post. So far, here's what we've got. Raising $5 billion. Mark owns over 25% of the company, making him worth roughly $25 billion on paper. There are 854 million users, with half logging on every day. Zynga accounts for 12.5 percent of Facebook's revenue. Facebook will likely see revenue decline, as they reach higher market penetration. COO Sheryl Sandberg made $32 million last year (and the shareholder breakdown). The letter from Mark Zuckerberg, on the IPO. Facebook does not plan on entering China. Facebook revenue over time and income over time. It will be a "controlled company".

  4. Wantful Hires Former eBay Marketer, Announces Growth

    One of the biggest problems people have regarding birthdays and the holidays is choosing the right present for a person. Do I do a gag gift? Will they think it's funny? Do I give a serious gift? A single expensive gift? Two smaller, less expensive gifts? A gift basket? The list goes on and on, and we haven't even gotten to the less meaningful and semi-lame fallback option: The Cash Giftcard.

  5. Listia Reaches 1 Million Users, Launches Android App

    One of the problems I experience about once every year is I end up with dozens of items I need to get rid of, and I have nowhere to put them (I move around, a lot). To solve this problem, I often am forced to turn to Craigslist, a neighbor's large dumpster or a pickup service. This is less than ideal, but most of the time, there's nothing to be done about it.

  6. Bloggers Unite To Help Raise Money For The Electronic Frontier Foundation

    For the past few weeks, a few facts about our lives have been clarified. The first is that the Internet is critically important to our way of life, and that freedom of expression is central to that.

While deleting tweets has always been possible on a global level, the tweets can now be deleted in one area of the world, and still be visible in the rest of the world. Immediately, this brings up some interesting questions.

  8. Unless You Are A Lawyer, Please Don't Comment On This Post

    In case you didn't know, Kim Dotcom, the founder of mega-site Megaupload has been indicted and is awaiting extradition to the United States from New Zealand. Dotcom is accused of money laundering, racketeering, copyright infringement and a host of other crimes. That's all well and good, it's the justice system, and people don't seem to have a problem with him being punished for stealing. The problem people are having with it? That he is being punished so much.
