AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE

You show up to work wearing the same dress as one of your colleagues and an intern snaps a photo at the morning meeting and instantly uploads it to his Flickr site. Ha, ha, ha. Good times. You visit Amazon.ca to check out some books and end up buying a book by the same author as last time. Boring. That evening, while checking your Facebook Inbox you notice that the site is suggesting you maybe send a "poke" to that guy who has been stalking you for the past five years. Disturbing.
