Betabeat

This is neither here nor there but strange enough to note: a screengrab from a Chinese documentary, Chinese Police, which features at exactly 30 seconds in a photobomb from no less than Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg. Mr. Zuckerberg, who reportedly visited Shanghai at the end of March, is shown walking with Ms. Chan behind a pair of grim-faced Chinese cops, looking oddly amused if not downright tickled by the scene in front of him.

The site that originally reported the photobomb (docu-bomb?) translated the subtitle on-screen during Mr. Zuckerberg’s appearance as “Many problems impelled the Chinese police to find way (sic) to increase efficiency.”

I don’t know, but ever since some of our most prolific writers left the blog game to either a) become entrepreneurs or b) become investors, the tech blogosphere has been quiet — too quiet. And by quiet I mean so noisy that it’s difficult for anything of any substance (or signal) to come through.

Gone are the days of “Facebook PR: Tonight We Dine In Hell!” or “How The Hell Is This My Fault?” or “SXSWi: Because Hell Doesn’t Have Enough Promotional Stickers” or “Delta Flight 1843 From JFK To Hell” or any TC post with “Hell” in the title really.
