Find the error in a picture taken from a 7-year old child who has the down syndrome while taking part in a local Special Olympics event. There is nothing wrong. The child just had some fun and a great day. Facebook said the picture (or merely the whole album) violates against the Facebook terms and has blocked the child mothers account. (In the meantime Facebook apologized this step.)
This story is just one of uncountable more ones and so I feel vindicated about not being at Facebook.
It reminds me on Pakistan having a word list to block Internet sites on mobile devices. It includes mostly sexual offending words but also some like “Budweiser”, “Jesus Christ”, “deposit”, “idiot” and “stupid”. Because it is a black list it is allowed to write the same word in any other language or to use other words representing a similar meaning. This is silly, asinine,… (You guess it… These words are not on the list… Shall I proceed?) As I have used some bad words words already – this page will not be accessible from Pakistan. D@mn Sh1t!
I am sorry for the offending words used in this text…

Software design is so complex that there is evidently no failure,
or it is so simple that there is no evident failure.
(Translated from German)
Softwaredesign ist so komplex, dass es keinen offensichtlichen Fehler gibt,
oder so einfach, dass es offensichtlich keinen Fehler gibt.

You may have noticed that the site have changed. I have migrated the installation to a new server. As the old theme did not support widgets I have switched the theme. I havn’t migrated media files yet – so some images will show up some time later.
UPDATE: I’ve migrated all the media content from the old server, so the images should be in place now…

After six degrees of separation, six degrees of wikipedia there is an project working on the relationships of facebook… guess it’s name … “
six degrees of” … no – sorry – it is called The Anatomy of the Facebook Social Graph (see also here) – but the idea is the same. Interesting is that the hop distance tends to fall over the years as network grows.
