Anyone watching any of this?

Hearing a bunch of gov't olds try and wrap their minds around Facebook is kind of hilarious, and also sad.

"Is your service like Twitter?"

Is that a serious fucking question?

Also: a senator waiving around a printout of the Facebook user/service agreement saying it's too dense and cannot be understood is the best irony I've seen in a while.

The senators asking for him to agree to 24 hour or 72 hour windows to notify all users of any data compromise/mis-use/anything have no idea what that actually takes. None.

Heh, and the next Senator has 3'x4' printed placards being held up by his interns behind him. Hilarious.

Yeah, I get it. This will have wider implications about privacy and online activity that just Facebook and my fear here is that the people asking the questions do not have the slightest clue of what they are diving into.

Oh, for sure. Valid point about issue relevancy and Congressional :derp: -ness is very valid.

And yeah, I'll go back and throw Obamacare under that umbrella too, neither side is immune. We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it.. Fuck you, I don't trust you to fix the issues with the handling of my data any more than the people that fucked it up. If anything, FB might try harder because it's money in and out of their pocket, potentially.

While I agree with you in general ,for the sake of truth, the bolded really needs context.
“In the fall of the year,” Pelosi said today, “the outside groups…were saying ‘it’s about abortion,’ which it never was. ‘It’s about ‘death panels,’’ which it never was. ‘It’s about a job-killer,’ which it creates four million. ‘It’s about increasing the deficit’; well, the main reason to pass it was to decrease the deficit.” Her contention was that the Senate “didn’t have a bill.” And until the Senate produced an actual piece of legislation that could be matched up and debated against what was passed by the House, no one truly knew what would be voted on.

“So, that’s why I was saying we have to pass a bill so we can see so that we can show you what it is and what it isn’t,” Pelosi continued. “It is none of these things. It’s not going to be any of these things.”

Survival of the fittest man.

Also, data security is a thing we all need to take proactive steps to take care of on our own.

I quoted from the same Snopes link, :bruh:

Want more context? Here's more of her original speech.
Imagine an economy where people could follow their aspirations, where they could be entrepreneurial, where they could take risks professionally because personally their families [sic] health care needs are being met. Where they could be self-employed or start a business, not be job-locked in a job because they have health care there, and if they went out on their own it would be unaffordable to them, but especially true, if someone has a child with a pre-existing condition. So when we pass our bill, never again will people be denied coverage because they have a pre-existing condition.

We have to do this in partnership, and I wanted to bring [you] up to date on where we see it from here. The final health care legislation that will soon be passed by Congress will deliver successful reform at the local level. It will offer paid for investments that will improve health care services and coverage for millions more Americans. It will make significant investments in innovation, prevention, wellness and offer robust support for public health infrastructure. It will dramatically expand investments into community health centers. That means a dramatic expansion in the number of patients community health centers can see and ultimately healthier communities. Our bill will significantly reduce uncompensated care for hospitals.

You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention–it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.
She was speaking to a Legislative Conference, not to the general public.
