we're not a tribe anymore
they're apparently celebrating on the streets of kosovo. it seems after much lobbying of facebook "officials," they are now officially a country. on facebook. ironically, this makes me wonder if we are witnessing the beginning of the end of countries and nations as we know them. what's next, will countries send ambassadors to facebook and google? and perhaps apple and microsoft while they're at it? maybe coca-cola (just so they're not all tech companies) and disney? just because some wing nut who probably couldn't find kosovo on a map changed a bit of code in the backend of facebook, kosovo now feels legitimized. who cares if the united nations and the european union don't agree? facebook likes us! we're not a tribe anymore.
the next thing you know, they'll be opening starbucks in denmark...
