Can we please stop doing this?: Connecting to Facebook

I joined Pinterest this week!  Yes, you can now follow me on the fast-growing, lady-centric, thing-collecting social network under the name JordoPC. That’s not why I’m writing this though.  I’m writing to ask a simple favor of websites and social networks: Can we please stop connecting everything to Facebook? After waiting twelve hours for my invitation (one does not simply sign up for Pinterest) I arrived at the sign in page to find this: I was annoyed to learn you can only sign up if you choose to connect to your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts, which I have no interest in doing.  On the Facebook front, I don’t want to spam my friends’ newsfeeds or have Pinterest suggest I follow that girl that I haven’t seen in 15  years.  I also don’t want to hand Facebook an easy way to know even more stuff about me.  On the Twitter front, I almost exclusively follow news org...

Voice calling on both mobile phones and (in some circumstances) on landlines is in decline. The heaviest texters are also the heaviest talkers. Teens who text the most are also the most likely to make calls, talk with people face to face outside of school, and use social network sites. One quarter of teens have a smartphone. The oldest teens (ages 16 and 17) are the most likely to report smartphone ownership. Otherwise, there are few demographic differences between smartphone and regular cell phone owners. Smartphone owners are more likely than regular phone owners to: use tablets to go online; use a location-based service ... (more)

Visual Studio Project Sample Loading Error: Assembly could not be loaded and will be ignored. Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)

Some folks have mentioned to me that they are having trouble getting some of my samples to work.  And in fact, just the other day, I ran into a problem getting my own samples to work.  It turns out to be a problem with the way windows treats the sample that you down load. Specifically, because you downloaded the sample from the internet, windows treats the sample as “untrusted” content.  When you unzip untrusted content you get a directory full of untrusted content.  Visual Studio is not so good and running untrusted content.  Unfortunately, you get some really bad error messages like the one above. Here is the error message from VB Warning    1    Assembly 'C:\Users\brada\Desktop\MyApp.VB\MyApp.VB.Web\bin\MyApp.VB.Web.dll' could not be loaded and will be ignored.
