Hey look everybody, by embedding the above video, I’m in copyright violation! At least according to these smart representatives from the MPAA, who have used the internet before!
In other internet news, smart people with lots of numbers in their heads are thinking that all the hot Facebook on Instagram action is the harbinger for a third venture capital-fueled bubble, because we never fucking learn do we?
Speaking of never learning, check out SOPA’s little sister, CISPA! It’s got “cyber” in the title so you know it’s serious. It also files copyright infringement under “threats to cybersecurity,” because what could be a greater threat to security than using the internet?

Facebook just bought Instagram for one hundred krillion dollars. This is excellent news, people are already very excited! No really, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. “Like” that in your “like” button and “like” it! Because nothing bad ever happens when an entire economic sector becomes dependent on the solvency of a single corporate entity. NOTHING BAD AT ALL. Certainly not the possibility that Facebook will soon saturate every possible market, then in its inevitable decline pull the rest of the cyber-circus tent down with it. Nope, some things are too big to fail, like the banking or auto industries!
In conclusion, good job Zuck! You have just surpassed the lovely Samantha Brick as honorary troll of the week.
