FSK Asks - Facebook vs. XNA?

One of my business ideas is "write a game".

Based on my experience jobsearching, everybody seems to be writing Facebook applications now.

I was considering writing an XNA game. Would my efforts be better spent writing a Facebook game, especially if there's a multiplayer component?

What is a better investment of my time, learning XNA, or learning Facebook development, or just working on blogging?

I'm probably better off blogging and working towards agorism, than working on an XNA game.

Facebook. No competition.

I would caution that all of these "Facebooks" and "MySpaces" will soon perish, and one that is searching for a worthwhile application of his talents should keep this in mind.

What is the reason they exist? Enormous amounts of free time, no desire to plan or work for a rainy day, complete superficiality of the people. Just look at Tweeter patrons. Do you not cringe?

All of these activities will soon perish together with a system that has brought them about. People will either find that they have no time to devote to stupidity such as social networking, or they will perish with it.

Even if some rudimentary remains of this superficial social networking engine continue to exist for the benefit of the few either sufficiently rich or sufficiently stupid to still be found within it, it probably wouldn't worth your time.

Now, I don't necessarily imply that you should turn your attention toward blogging or agorism, but only to point out that the social superficiality networking isn't going to be long-lived.

I say agorism. Focus on the gray markets.

Actually, there is a very bad reason these horrible places (facebook, myspace, etc.) Paranoia aside, it is a very cheap way for the State to create a map of who knows whom, and keep an eye on any potential troublemakers. The 'friends' paradigm forces the unsuspecting users to map the connection to their friends who may not even be on facebook or yourspace. Many users post photographs with comments that list their friends' names.

If you think I am a paranoid nut, do a little research on where the funding for these corporations comes from and what the VCs involved are invested in.

Create a VCspace of the connections between the Government and the projects funded, much the same way they are tracking the unsuspecting fools, and you will do something useful.

How about ParanoidSpace? You can do all kinds of things, such as what multinational food companies own which organic 'health food' brands, how the Sierra Club is connected to the corporate web of Clorox, who really benefits from the 'global warming' scam, etc.
