Facebook’s Gone Rogue – This is a good article outlining some growing concerns with Facebook. “Facebook has gone rogue, drunk on founder Mark Zuckerberg’s dreams of world domination.

Flooding in Tennessee – Boston.com gathered some of the most interesting photos from Nashville and elsewhere in Tennessee.

The 64-Gigabyte Shape of the Future – Michael Gerson on the iPad: “Those of us nostalgic for the book-based culture also will be nostalgic for ink on our fingers, the crinkle of thin pages, paperboys and papergirls and stopping the presses.
