    This is offtopic but I got a real giggle out of the “Eligible in all categories” blurb in the “Get Low’s” FYC ad on this site.

    More specifically, I laughed because that’s the best way I could deal with this kind of put-on naivete.

    At first I thought it was a joke but then the more I thought about it I can see why he was choosen. I too hate the new Facebook and how everything you write shows back up on your wall!! I have to do a lot of deleting!!

    “Somewhat dubious?” Are you kidding? Any other choice would not have made sense. This was the year of Facebook and combined with The Social Network it made 2010 Zuckerberg’s year. Time choosing anyone else would have been idiotic and completely inaccurate.
