    Meets the Pope. It's a fairytale story, of a common sheeple* herder....

    * Yes, I know d/v for 'sheeple' - but I thought it was funny in this context - I'll get my coat and go before the party even starts.

    Facebook is already a cult...

    ... especially among journalists who can't understand technology. This morning the radio news, talking about his visit in Rome, told Facebook is the "innovation of the century". Typical blind faith of someone who talks about things he or she doesn't understand.

      It's omniscience that is Facebook's business model.

      Psalm 139:4 - Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.

      and then an advert for it pops up on Facebook.
