This is truly genius: To capture just how boring the painfully scrutinized and endlessly debated issue of Facebook privacy is, Gawker sent a photographer to stalk Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and violate his privacy for a few days. The result? An incredibly humdrum portfolio of the mundane details (where he works, what he ate, who his friends are, what he thinks of his iPhone) of a random young person's life. What a perfect way to lay out precisely how tedious and low-stakes this whole topic is! Oh, wait. Was that not the point? [Gawker]
