Facebook Reality Bubble

Amerige, a Facebook engineering manager of product usability, sent a memo protesting the company's "intolerant" liberal culture, shortly before he left the company.

I have to wonder whether these 2 ladies, and how they have been treated, were a significant part of the reason for the disgruntled employee's allegations...

thanks for bringing it up.

No Twatter account. No Facecrook. No LockedIn.

Nada.

Just here. That's it.

Is it a triumph of will? Or the tragic story of one lonely technology misfit living a withdrawn life devoid of digital "friends?"

I'm building a communications cube sat programmed to talk to me from space.

I'm naming it God.

You may openly speak, until we disagree

Facebook? ...executing a policy of prejudiced inclinations with non-violent content. Surely, you must jest.

Facebook is getting away from facilitating conversation to trying to regulate it.

The position was destined for failure.
