True, "startup" was a bad word choice on my part.  I was grasping for a 
word that distinguishes them from The Big Five that currently control 
nearly everything on the Internet.

In a system as vast and important as the net, it benefits all of 
humanity to have its control broader than the number of people who can 
fit in a golf cart.

I had heard about the FB thing, but had thought that was opt-in.  If not 
requiring explicit opt-in, I don't think the word "evil" is entirely out 
of bounds.  Psychosocial profiling derived from mass data collection is 
something we should all be wary of.

Excellent - thanks! I'll look it up and see what it takes to set up a 
VPS with it.
