"It's no secret that I'm not a huge Facebook fan. All you have
to do is read some of my other posts on the topic. I think
Facebook's IPO comes at a time when Facebook is on its way
out–out of our lives and out of our gadgetry–for good.
I believe that a lot of people have discovered that it's a waste of
time and computing resources. It was cute for a while but now,
they're trying to rekindle interest in this juvenile phenomenon by
issuing this IPO. It's silly but it will make megamillionaires and
billionaires out of people who aren't qualified to deliver pizza.
Crazy stuff, that."
