what if in your company there would be an internal web with employees/departments having their own websites. and I don't mean a CMS but individual pages, and a search engine that scrapes everything just like on the internet, rating links by the same criteria so it becomes a fun place to be and explore?
we often hear web service companies proclaim that people don't want to pay for their web services and that's why they have to use ads to finance the business. this is bullshit. people expect e.g. search engines to be "free" because the search engines themselves started out providing the service for "free" (ad driven).
it's their own fault but they try to blame it on the people.

wtf #pinterest? I despise you

the holy grail we need to discover is a system that inherently punishes unethical behavior. #capitalism has all the wrong incentives. we need a system that encourages genuineness and discourages secondary means (like making money).
