The Fincher film that Andrew loves reveals its poster on its official site.

The site can also be found by typing in “500millionfriends.com” into your address bar.  We’re waiting with baited breath as to whom buys “500millionenemies.com” to combat it.

Jesse Eisenberg looks more like Michael Cera here than ever before.  I think.

You can even “like” the site.

I’m sure Andrew will keep us posted on further dvelopments…

Maestro Marky Zee,

You’ve been getting a lot of flack recently from tech pundits about the liberties that Facebook has taken with regards to user privacy. And you’ve responded without apology, but with indications of placating the mouthpieces.

Good for you, but if you ask me, I’d say don’t apologize whatsoever.

facefeedWith news today that Facebook has fed on Friendfeed, I suppose the only question left to ask is will everyone FINALLY hear about Friendfeed now? At least I’m sure the cable news will report it… if they can tie it to Twitter.

Our hope: that the new amalgamation will be called Facefeed, because Facebook has essentially become the junkfood of social networking anyway (I would say MySpace, but they’ve dropped to the dollar store canned food of the genre). And since we love nothing better than to FEED OUR FACE, I propose we all bow down to our new Lord of Timesuck: FACEFEED!
