ZNGA, the drug of penal servitude, certainly wasn't worth $10 billion.
The jury will shortly determine if it is worth $2 billion, no small pile of change. Which is more critical? Virtual goods or virtual good? Idealists, an endangered species in the modern age, would point to the latter as a goal worthy to attain. In my moments of absolute naivete, I would point out that companies which produce real goods, items of utility, will become the new paradigm. People willingly pay real money for these things. ZNGA will be a minor footnote in the folly of a lost generation consumed with incessant button pushing and the latest mobile devices. Apple is already signaling the coming shift. Farcebook will also become passe. How are the masses controlled? Behold, it is in your very midst. The government might not appreciate a Renaissance in individual creative thought, quite the antithesis to the herd conformity of ZNGA. The spiritual revolution arises from the ashes of a serious economic decline already well underway. We will again focus on age old basic values, but much pain will be encountered first. ZNGA will be flotsam in the outgoing tide. Know your friends and community. They too are very practical assets.
We are stardust
We are golden
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
If Odonnell is a nut , what is Mr. Pinus? He cashed out for $200 M 10 months ago at $12 per share and now resides in the $16 M mansion in Pacific Heights . Odonnell's screeds seems relevant by predicting what the Kosher Nostra fears - the move back to the garden of creative thought ! In this garden Pinus finally becomes a mere footnote as the SEC and sweet Mary Joe White lock him away across the Bay n Lompoc Prison where the true nuts exist!
