a note to any self-styled internet pundits reading this: the next time you get the idea to call a tweaked-by-the-internet form “[form] 2.0,” stop and think. is the history of this form sufficiently short for this nomenclature to make sense? has journalism really only reached its second major evolutionary point because of the dawning era of tag-based taxonomy? is music that nascent of a medium? the answer in pretty much all these cases (save *maybe* the web, and i’d actually argue that “version 2.0” of the web actually came up when graphical browsing was first introduced) is “no, you nitwit, there was actually a pretty nicely functioning society going on before the internet came along, and you maybe should get your head out of your ass and, like, read a book. no, not an ebook. a book, preferably one that’s filed in the ‘history’ section.”

i’m still seeing it. maybe because facebook likes to torture me.
Seriously, did Facebook take this feature down? If they ever responded to press requests (or, at least, MINE), I’d have a definitive answer, but since they seem to want to run their company like it’s still out of a dorm room, perhaps we’ll never know.
