Indeed in Flock’s case he really is getting off lightly.

    Gimme a break. If we were trying to solve world poverty and global warming we would have already finished by now and started work on The Solution To Everything Bad Two Point Oh.

    Instead we’re building an open source web browser that taps into web services. I mean, it’s obvious that we chose the harder problem to work on since no one else was doing it. Pshhaw.

    Oh, and is it true that the Onion is buying you guys?
