Facebook exec erroneously cites The Lord of the Rings when comparing the social network to the One Ring

Quote:
As part of his argument, Boz makes the comparison by citing none other than J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings to explain his decision. Facebook, Boz argues, is akin to Sauron’s One Ring, and wielding its power — even with noble intent — would only lead to ruin.


I am currently reading LOTR, again. Coincidence? most certainly.

While dude was wrong on the specific character, he inadvertently made a rather good point. Facebook itself is probably too powerful for anyone to wield, and should be tossed into a pit of lava.
