pile mentioned this during our meeting today. i find it simply amazing. also mentioned during the same meeting was general perception on what facebook’s cpm was running at (cents), and that coupled with their payroll and infrastructure cost, how long they can afford to keep their “we ain’t selling” stance. i still think microsoft will buy them someday.

site performance *is* part of the user experience. i forget that from time to time which i find strange given how often i will completely abandon a site due to their load time lag or flash splash page.
