    Mark Zuckerberg, eh? Well, Facebook is pretty big, and it has expanded quite a bit this year.

    This was bullshit. Assange won it, and they stole it from him. What is so special about Facebook anyway? All Zuckerburg did was remake Myspace.

    Obviously if you think this is important, you're among the people who also thought the VGAs were important.

    expected, I mean facebook is pretty darn useful and damn big. No one can say that facebook did not impact the everyday for a lot of people.

    My thoughts exactly. Sure-fire way to make this 'award' seem like a complete joke in my eyes.

    Well, Facebook is pretty big.


    I thought that someone more important would get it though, like the Wikileaks guy, whatshisface.

    I didn't read any of the link, but here's what I think about it.

    First off, I don't care.

    Secondly, given that it's this year, it is probably due to the whole "liking" project that's dominated the internet this year. I don't know his specific involvement, but it's a pretty big step towards things like openid.

    What, The Social Network?

    "For that few months"

    It was released in Australia last month/October.

    I think its still in cinemas.

    OT: This is a fucking joke, Assange should have gotten it.
