Slightly related: I'm now wondering about all those problematic samples 
that Jason uploaded during his time at Facebook last summer, the samples 
that he said should never go into a public-facing repository because 
they were uploaded with private settings.

Then again, with all the controversy surrounding FB's privacy policies 
in the past year, maybe not such a big deal.
