Your naturalness is always endearing, even when you play grumpy.  ;-)

It may seem like overly zealous waste of technology.. but look at it from 
another angle - 
It's just plain ole (ancient) human need for social interaction... piped 
through the latest tools. 
The girls anyway certainly love FaceBook, et al., for the same reasons they 
ever loved the chance to compare social notes.

I did not use the takethislollipop.com app, so I don't know either what is its 
point (I hesitate like others said they do, to let apps grab all my FB data), 
but here I was just commenting on FB and social apps in general.

From a programmer's perspective, I would say that selling things is just as 
boring as aimless socializing.  WHAT ARE YOU programming anyway?  ;-)
We programmers just keep track of other peoples' details... and once the 
novelty of solving problems (for solving sake) wears off, then it seems to me 
that programming, as such, is no more interesting, in the end, than the stuff 
the code serves.

What does truly uplifting/evolutionary code look like anyway?
