Roger McNamee lays into Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg was on the cover of Time magazine, and Roger McNamee - whom I really like - wrote this essay. I kind of like the idea of the equivalent of an FDA for the internet. Actually, what...

I hope you noticed that this is an article, not my opinion, so you'd have to ask the author for evidence, if the article, assuming you read it all, didn't persuade you.
