On a related note, Twitter has announced vague plans to verify the identities of celebrities, politicians, and other notables on the site, so we can finally know it's really Lindsay Lohan tweeting about her life and not some other insane 20-something rehab refugee. Exact details on how "Verified Accounts" would actually get verified appear to exist only inside Biz Stone's head at the moment.
I'm not sure I can get entirely behind all this truthiness. The very fabric of the Net could be torn asunder. The next thing you know, actresses might be forced to verify that nude photos of themselves on the Net feature their actual (fake) breasts and not some other actress's actual (fake) breasts. Where's the fun in that?
Oops, now there's only 2 days, 12 hours, 3 minutes, and 57 seconds left before the Facebook Narcissism Fest. What am I going to do for the next 60 hours? The suspense is killing me.
