"FB's glistening new search engine makes finding interesting things about yourself, your past, and all of your friends excitingly easy. It also makes it a cinch to find strangers who are openly racist, sexist, and generally embarrassing.

"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a new feature yesterday called Graph Search. Graph Search magnifies everything good and bad about Facebook. It's Facebook on steroids. To the extent that Facebook is good for connecting with family and friends, Graph Search makes Facebook great for that purpose.

"I thought every day that the company missed me but I’ve learned they just keep going on with business. AND (UN)FORTUNATELY most businesses get better. So be stern when letting someone go but be reasonable and thoughtful to how it must feel. I encourage everyone to get fired once so they know that feeling. It’s unbelievable and something to definitely learn from."

"Did you catch that? Facebook is about to do a huge stock buyback, at less than half of what it received for its shares at the IPO four months ago! No, you probably didn't catch that. And you can be forgiven for not catching it. Because the filing didn't say anything about a buyback. But, it's true..."
