Having been one of the lucky ones to snap up a ticket for the opening night of Monty Python's live comeback show yesterday, I still have Always Look on the Bright Side of Life stuck in my head. But just when I thought that penis-shaped swirly canons expelling a stream of frothy bubbles all over the audience was as Pythonish as you could go, it got even better.

What they did was not ethical. By testing out a theory on unsuspecting users, they were deliberately interfering with the choices they made, whether it is in terms of what status updates they published or what content they interacted with. That doesn't sit right with me.

Like so many others in America, Partovi's story is that of an immigrant. However, long before his family emigrated from native Iran, he was hooked onto computers, much like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg in their formative years.

Amongst the sleekest handsets and most technical toothbrush you've ever seen, there were also some real initiatives to put technology to good use at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona: increasing accessibility, aiding healthcare and supporting the developing world.

Mark Zuckerberg's vision for Facebook and WhatsApp could scupper a unique opportunity in human history to improve the fortunes of mankind on a scale not seen since the discovery of penicillin. His plan to monopolize modern communication on his social networks, if successful, will consign telecoms companies to the history books.

Facebook's 10th Birthday: Will You Be Celebrating?

Jessica Brown | Posted 05.04.2014 | UK Tech

I gave Facebook my golden years, but what has Facebook ever given me? It has facilitated a lazy approach to keeping in contact with people.
