Face Plant

Is anyone besides me completely unsurprised that Facebook’s absurdly over-hyped IPO ended in predictable disaster?  As the investigations and lawsuits roll in, I think it’s useful to consider that everyone involved appears to be afflicted with Alzheimers.  Nostalgia for the heady days of HomeGrocer.com and the latest (now defunct) telecom continues to addle the minds [...]
