      That's right. However, a lot depends on who "they" are. The crooks who stole money from my bank account are at least honest in they profile: crooks. Whereas crooks like Sugarboy call themselves "social". Citibank - also crooks - at least provide a necessary service, one which should be non-profit but ain't.

        Tarjei: Rip-off? How much did you pay them?

        FB is full, FULL of ads. Propaganda and profit is its raison d'etre. But it promotes itself as a social service, a lie. The schmucks read these ads - subliminally or not - and buy the shit offered. A rip-off, slightly more sophisticated than the ATM crooks, because its legal.

          Hmmm... Facebook hasn't cost me a dime yet, although I've been using it for a few years. To buy shit offered, and to be a schmuck for that matter, is an act of free choice. Being ripped off is not. It usually means that you pay for a brand new Cadillac and get a fifteen year old Chevy instead, for the same price. Or you go to buy some good marijuana, pay for it, and then discover they've sold you poison ivy. You try to buy cannabis and end up with shoe leather. (I think I was ripped off like that once, in my teens. Maybe FB hasn't succeeded in ripping me off yet because experience has made me savvy, hehe.)

            I do appreciate what you are saying. That the internet was intended as
            a means of communication and the cultural gift of the world wide web
            made that even easier so that privacy was never intended, quite the
            contrary. But things change. It has developed into a global, social
            world of it own. Consequently, in my judgment there ought to room for
            a person to have both a private and a public life within it. As an
            individual I find times of privacy important. Maybe I should just
            switch off the computer - I'm sure it would be the best way. But is
            anonymity a crime on the web? Why should I accept google and others
            tracking my every move like Big Brother and the thought police? It is
            the grey area between truth and error where Ahriman thrives.

            I was pleased when I was _not able to open my own bank account from
            behind the jondo proxy and nor from running the triple encrypted i2p
            protocol. (An attempt to have a safe protocol where no host is trusted
            by utilising the unused upload bandwith on home computers to create a
            secret net within the www. At present it is very slow because only so
            many thousand use it. One way to speed it up a little is to take down
            your firewall !!! But if you cannot read the open code then you need
            to be able to trust whoever wrote it. ) http://www.i2p2.de/

              The assault against online anonymity now spearheaded by Facebook is troublesome. Facebook is trying to capture the entire web through a log-on system that combines all your registered accounts through one single password. I don't go for that. I use separate accounts for separate services and domains, for as long as such an option lasts.

              The powers that be probably wish to get at all the pirates and the hackers and the spammers and so on by eliminating online anonymity. You can't even buy an anomymous cell phone anymore, at least not in Norway, like you could in the late nineties, when you just bought a phone, put a cash card in it, and you had a phone number belonging to nobody. Now every phone -- and especially every sim card (which carries your phone number) has to be registered in a real person's name, it's the law -- probably a Taliban sort of thing. Yep, that's it: The Taliban doctrine. We're losing our anonymity because of the Taliban, because of ABB, and we comply and don't complain because otherwise them trrrr-sssts (like GWB called them) will come and get us in the middle of the night.

              On the other hand, if you're in a forum like this one for a long, long time and everybody else is anonymous as though it's terribly dangerous to opine about anthroposophy and philosophy and so on, that's poor and dumb netiquette imho. It reminds me of Glenn Frey's Smugglers' Blues, 2nd verse:

              No matter if it's heroin, cocaine, or hash,
              You've got to carry weapons
              Cause you always carry cash.
              There's lots of shady characters,
              Lots of dirty deals.
              Ev'ry name's an alias
              In case somebody squeals.

              It's the lure of easy money,
              It's gotta very strong appeal.

                  I think it's time to launch a "occupy facebook" movement. You may say: Why don't you just unsubscribe?
                  It is not possible to unsubscribe from Facebook. You can take down your data from the page, but they keep it on file, for your benefit of course...just in case you ever want to resubscribe. Besides, that beautiful chic who got me in continues to exert pressure. "Facebook or me"? No: "all or nothing".

Facebook is trying to capture the entire web through a log-on system that combines all your registered accounts through one single password. I don't go for that. I use separate accounts for separate services and domains, for as long as such an option lasts.

You can't even buy an anomymous cell phone anymore, at least not in Norway, like you could in the late nineties, when you just bought a phone, put a cash card in it, and you had a phone number belonging to nobody. Now every phone -- and especially every sim card (which carries your phone number) has to be registered in a real person's name, it's the law -- probably a Taliban sort of thing. Yep, that's it: The Taliban doctrine. We're losing our anonymity because of the Taliban, because of ABB, and we comply and don't complain because otherwise them trrrr-sssts (like GWB called them) will come and get us in the middle of the night.

                      Serendipity! I came across this video of a talk given by our Eugene Schwarz in 2010 at the Glasshouse, Stourbridge, UK. I think I retrospectively posted the schedule of the conference he's attending before Christmas. Anyway, if you take a look at the video at around 42 minutes he's describing the life of Zuckerboy and the film they made of it called 'The Social Network'. He thinks Mr Facebook is classic Aspergers but also a kind of angel. It's the first I've seen of Mr Schwarz and I think that he's an ace speaker!

                          You're welcome, Frank. He's done a few more on education you might not have seen; all are v. good. He seems such a nice guy - must have been great to have him as a teacher!

                          I'm so impressed; this guy is dynamite! I love the introduction he gives where he describes the first school intake in Stuttgart for the Waldorf cigarette factory kids. Steiner wanted to take these 'apprentice fodder' kids and give them the same quality of education as the rich middle class kids, but in 'half the time', as they had to go to work by 8th grade. I can see why Mr Schwarz has his own web-site, is in demand around the world, and was awarded a Teaching Fellowship at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in Princeton. Must be amazing to have this kind of talent.
