Submission + - A contrarian stance on Facebook and privacy (oreilly.com)

macslocum writes: Amidst the uproar over Facebook's privacy maneuvers, Tim O'Reilly offers a contrarian view. He writes: "... let's not make privacy a third rail issue, pillorying any company that makes a mistake on the privacy front. If we do that, we'll never get the innovation we need to solve the thorny nest of issues around privacy and data ownership that are intrinsic to the network era ... With that in mind, I'm willing to cut Facebook some slack. For now."
