You may have seen it reported yesterday that the pallid, painfully thin man-boys developing Facebook apps in their mildewed geek caves may very well make more money than Facebook itself in 2009. $500 million is a figure that has been bandied about. That this is even possible is yet another testament to the fact that Mark Zuckerberg cannot manage his way out of a wet paper bag. But let us not expend our energies kicking Mr. Zuckerberg in the stomach. Plenty of time for that later. Instead, let’s take a look at exactly what sort of Facebook apps we’re talking about.

TechCrunch has posted a story and lovely video that explains all.  Examine them and then tear at your flesh with your bare hands in anguish that you did not come up with the ideas first.

Who cares if you can get free MP3s online? How about a free college education? The internet will spend less time trying to sell you things and more time helping you do things.
