    I read your blog from time to time, and each time I am amazed at the different news bits that you have picked up to comment on.

    Along those same lines, I was curious as to your knowledge about the Facebook source code leak and the subsequent number of posters getting cease and desist letters.

    I know so little about whether or not the source code for popular websites such as Facebook is fully considered the private property of its creators. In this case it seems to be ‘front-end’ code and not the secret nuts and bolts of what goes on behind the scenes.

    Is there any differentiation?

    I’d be very interested to see your thoughts either on this blog or by e-mail. Thank you.
