It’s About Time Someone Translated The Facebook TOS Into Bro Speak. Thank you Miles Lothe for taking the whole brogramming thing to the next level by reading the entire Facebook TOS and translating it into bro-speak.
This is amazing because Facebook, aside from Manpacks (yes it exists), is the most brogrammy startup on earth — Please email or IM me if you want me to elaborate on this, because it’s late but I can totally prove it.

For most any CEO who could have even a modest chance of succeeding at it, that payoff would be reason enough to take a serious look at entering the search category. And that’s what will propel him next year to make a completely disruptive entry into the search category. So if it’s not for the financial value, then why am I so certain that Mark Z. will make a play for Google’s home turf?
It’s because it’s so irresistibly good for his users. Facebook To Launch Music Platform With Spotify, MOG & Rdio. Juror Pleads Guilty After "Friending" Defendant.
