I'm Outraged!!!

Just about the time I was going to transmogrify from Twitter to FriendFeed, stuff like this happens. For those that haven't clicked the link, or came back after you did, here's the thing: This is so terribly a bad idea, and here's why....

It should've happened the other way around.

Read that again, I'll wait.

Now I'm pretty sure that Friendfeed wouldn't have been able to make this purchase anytime soon, however, according to the article linked above:
All of Mountain View-based FriendFeed's 12 employees will join Facebook; FriendFeed's four founders will hold senior roles on Facebook's engineering and product teams, the company said.

That's right, the people that have created the superior technology, now work for the company they were attempting to wipe off the map.

Adjust your expectations accordingly....

But not before you realize this comes on the heels of the news that has shutdown. I'd call coincidence, but it's more likely a psychic phenomenon, as well as today's new definition of irony....
