"Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing." - William James
What an unbelievable piece of shit. Not the worst person in the world because, you know, he hasn't killed anyone or anything, but, jesus, what a fucking douche. He's definitely the biggest douche I've ever seen in my entire life.
He has an excellent point on internet privacy, though. Not nuanced, but excellent. Everyone's had an unguarded moment (though his WHOLE website is an unguarded moment, so there's that) and do we want those on the web? Krikey. Just hope it's not you.
The whole Gawker/NYTimes style page culture generally makes me sick, but this one is definitely pretty enjoyable. However, Paul makes a good point which I would can be extend into some other areas. The big deal last year was Aleksey Vayner's resume, which while hilarious and completely ridiculous, should definitely not have been leaked by his interviewers at UBS, and so on.
Excellent use of pink shirts to reinforce the image he's going for.
Haha, that's a good point - the pink shirt just highlights the douchiness. What's worse, the fact that this got leaked onto the internet or his decision to just say "screw it, as long as everybody thinks I'm a douchebag I might as well play it up and try to get famous in the process."
