Diaspora sounds like a cuil idea!
Recently, I went to my boss and told him, "Screw this, I'm going to spend the next month refactoring our messy code, rather than adding new functionality". Messy code got deleted, known bugs were fixed, previously unknown bugs were found and fixed, and performance improved significantly. I fucking love working in a startup.
So what's a newton? Last I heard, it was the force that could effect an acceleration of 1m/s/s on a 1 kilogram body.
