Alot of Nothing But Noise

So, Facebook gets a patent for streaming a news feed…  hmmm…

not long ago, a major internet retailer i used to work for got one for the one-click purchasing process… as I remember it, the patent was only enforced when obviously abusive domain owners extended their reach of use of rights.  essentially, I don’t think FB will want to deal with the reputation-loss and the legal costs of essentially enforcing a flakey patent that reflects the very natural evolution of how people consume information these days, in the chaotic setting that is the web.

We continue to grow this beast that is the social web!
