Also watching everyone freak out over Ello's privacy statement. This is one of those moments when I say to myself something about "always ask how they plan to make money." Did we not learn this, Bay Areans, with the Web 1.0 crash? Apparently not.

I'll go make some popcorn.


Ooh, popcorn!

My least favorite thing about the Ello Exodus is that when people brought up issues with Ello, others have defended it like True Believers. "Give them a chance!"

Social media platforms are not our friends! Move or don't but pretending that the venture capital is not looking for a return on profit down the line is just sad.
