Buzz April 2010: Zuck of Borg

In the month of April, Failbook continued to fail user expectations of desired privacy settings. Mark Zuckerborg, the CEO of Facebook, wants to assimilate everybody’s privacy by default to whatever Zuck of Borg deems it. If you are using Google Buzz, be sure to follow me I’ll follow back. Here are some recent buzz posts from a variety of topics.

  • Desperate for Attention: I would love to get a letter from you but you should call me, or email me, or if it’s better for you just text me, maybe at reply me, or DM, comment on posts, or just stop by and say hello.
  • I feel like I stepped off a time machine, not really sure if it’s Monday or Tuesday, Can you image the jet lag coming off a time machine?
  • If kid doesn’t have his homework, it’s because the dog eat it. If a president sees economic down turns, it’s because of his predecessor. If a blue collar worker has a delay, it’s his coworkers fault. If a astro or quantum physicist makes a mistake or has delays firing up the LHC its because of either time traveling bandits or an invading intergalactic space fleet.
  • Time is a fractal and space is recursive.
  • Chicken doesn’t taste like chicken anymore, it taste more like hormone made plastic corn meal. If chicken does taste like chicken anymore what does everything that used to taste like chicken taste like now?
  • Facebook’s Zuckerborg remind me of Borg version of Pinky and the Brain. “what are we going to do tomorrow night, Zuckerborg?” “The same thing we do every night, try to take over the interwebs with the Like button, resistance is futile.”
  • What a day, I started chilling at University Ave., then shopping at an Chinese antique store, then BBQ in EPA, and now a nap. LOL. Plus nobody I know got killed in South Central L.A. Today was a good day. … Today I didn’t even have to use my A.K. I got to say it was a good day.
  • I want to fast forward to the weekend.
  • Today I drank water from the four corners of the world, Acqua Panna from Italy, Voss from Norway, Fiji from Fiji, and good ol’ tap water from the San Francisco bay area.
  • Is it still cool to party like it’s 1999?
  • I don’t like location base apps like Foursquare because I am afraid that a time traveling ninja will use that information to go back in time and ambush me.
  • TGIF doesn’t come close to expressing how I really feel…. :)
  • Steve Jobs should make available his playlist on iTunes.
  • iPad is the new iFad?
  • Summary of iPad reviews: iPad for president 2012, iPad resurrected from the dead, iPad cures boredom, iPad greatest thing since sliced iBread, iPad wins Nobel Peace Prize, iPad multi-touched by iGod, etc…
  • Wasn’t the Perl 6 Parrot VM an April Fool’s joke? Now, it is vapor ware.
  • My whole week felt like one bad Monday, repeating itself each day. Like if Ground Hog Day and Office Space had a crossover universe and made a prequel.
