I'm not even sure how it does it. But my name's not on my profile for whatever reason.

We're using a stock template now. I guess I filled in the name of my profile back in 2003. Meh... Hi, I'm Alex, and my avatar is the album cover for Jar of Flies. My screen name is a silly metal song, a pun on booze, and an inside joke about how I am from both the South (SC) and the North (NY). I'm a yankee or redneck, depending who's asking.

Probably with the update?

You've got to give facebook this: it really does allow people to insert themselves into other people's tragedies.

Facebook is designed to make everything about you. That missive someone posted? Definitely about you. That comment? It's about you. That tragedy someone experienced? It's about you jumping in to be seen consoling or even better one-upping them with a story of your own.

It's a piece of genius, really. What do people want to talk about most in the world? Let's design a social media platform that revolves around that very thing.
