    1. I find it very interesting that you would say that those who write the code for Facebook are the least likely to use it. Maybe it’s generational, but it has been my experience that anti-social types, or those with social phobias, are the people that get the most use out of Facebook and other social networking sites. They can “socialize” with “friends” from the comfort and security of home. Furthermore, Facebook is geared to college-age people, because, if you remember, you couldn’t get a Facebook account without a .edu email address. Also, you can add your wife to Facebook, it’s just not an option in “how do you know this person.”

    2. I think…though I would have to go back and listen to be sure…that I was trying to say that many people who write code for a living tend to live more in IRC channels, though in retrospect that has changed a lot in the last 5 years or so. Most of the programmers I know are anything but introverts. I definitely agree that facebook is a great medium for those with social phobias.

    3. Sorry! I thought about it more AFTER I left that comment, and realized I was probably making false assumptions, and so I apologize.
