Can Anything Take Down the Facebook Juggernaut? | Epicenter | Wired.com

Excerpt from a timely Steven Johnson reality check; tbd if Google's Knowledge Graph will be more open than Facebook's Open Graph
"This reluctance to link to the outside is, to say the least, hard to reconcile with Zuckerberg’s paean to open connection. Hyperlinks are the connective tissue of the online world; breaking them apart with solicitations to download apps may make it easier to share data passively with your friends, but the costs—severing the link itself and steering people away from unlit corners of the web—clearly outweigh the gains. Surely we can figure out a way to share seamlessly without killing off the seamless surfing that has done so much for us over the past two decades."
