Check this out the brilliant IEEE Spectrum special report on the battle for
the future of the social Web called 'Super Socialize Me' with a lot of
interesting stuff about the behemoth of 'web 2.0', especially of course our
friends (and now mutual enemies) Google and Facebook:

Part of it is Joshua Romero's account of his quite succesful and
gratifying attempt to get rid of his dependence on Google products:

He stayed hooked on YouTube, like most of us I guess, but he's switched
search to http://duckduckgo.com/ - and so will you!

For those with teaching (or taking) class - this is a nice assignement:

Any idea? Leave your comment.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
