Trent Reznor has recently gone from a seeming intellectual to more and more of a Sheepish brooder. Definitely the head of the 'im cool cause i bash' crowd while compromising his message of 'openness' for steve jobs' salted scrotum. Granted, Zukerburg is an asshole, but he did earn his titles.
It's called a ho, when NIN says it sucks, until you pay them, then guess who's doing all the sucking? You can call them whatever you want to, they'll only say nice things & do whatever you tell them to do. ;-)
The point is, Steve, while seemingly a douche actually tries to innovate, but then blows it by smothering users with rules, restrictions, and being a general control freak then an a$$ when people call him on it.
I don't really see how Facebook is revolutionary different from Myspace, and it wasn't that long ago that everyone was on myspace and saying facewhat? Remember when it was "student only" website? It gained traction because it was elitist, that's all. It's a fad in a culture obsessed with fads, and it too will be out of style when the next "big thing" hits.
I'm inclined to agree with Reznor. Zuckerberg lacks charisma and ability to brainwash his followers. Most people now use Facebook not because it's better, but because most their friends are on there and refuse to leave.
In short, Zuckerberg is akin to an "one-hit wonder".
Trent isn't the ex-frontman for nine inch nails....you can't be an frontman when the ONLY official member of nine inch nails is Trent. Trent IS NIN. He only has a band when he tours, all his recordings are mostly if not completely done by himself.
But ya i agree that Zuckerburg isn't steve jobs 2.0... and that's a good thing. at least some facebook users can think independently and quit facebook if they feel compelled to.
