look for more news on the Facebook front coming in a few weeks at the 2008 Facebook F8 conference in SF on July 23rd (register before July 7 to save some bucks). rumor has it Dave Morin will be debuting Facebook
Friend (oops) Connect at the event. no word on whether Mr. Morin will be ripping any big air on stage, but we know he has the cojones if needed.
i'd also bet even money F8 will featured the long-awaited debut of Facebook Payments, whereby Facebook will finally begin addressing the monetization issue that has been dogging them for the past half-year. (btw, interesting listserve here apparently run by Jared Morgenstern... hi Jared ;)
happy 4th of July to everyone, and enjoy the long weekend... second half of 2008 begins Monday. gonna be a very interesting summer, i think.
update #1: Doh! guess Yishan's post is only visible to his facebook friends... okay, so maybe semi-permeable garden, perhaps. for the record, Yishan notes in the comments this is likely a bug, not intentional. might want to fix that.
update #2: so Kottke obviously came across this [now a bit ironic] post, and noted that it's also not viewable. to which, i was going to write a 'yeah, guess it seems a little silly' comment... except that Kottke's blog doesn't appear to accept comments (or am i missing something?) except on this property where nobody ever comments. tho his TOU seems to suggest he did previously, and earlier posts do have comments... if i'm clueless, maybe someone who knows the story there can fill me in. still, i wonder if people who live in semi-permeable blogs should throw stones at invisible smackdowns.
update #2b: thanks to Jon Bell who informed me that occasionally Kottke's posts are comment-enabled... but not that one.
update #3: no question, mr. kottke has a pretty damn huge audience. getting one of my larger traffic days ever from his off-day link to my piddly-ass little piece of shit i call a blog. holy crap.
