I wouldn’t know if they have any further connection.

Not a problem. :) As I said before, your point is worth making, and the issue goes far beyond Pinterest. Just one of the problematical aspects of social media…

Please accept my apologies for using the word 'hyping' — I had not seen your response to me before today, and my choice of words was unfortunate and inaccurate. Yours is obviously a website inquiring into matters security, and I should not have written in a manner that suggested otherwise. In retrospect, I think that I meant that your discussion may have advanced public interest in Pinterest indirectly (due to the number of people who read your site), but that's not what I said.

I do not remember his name, but I would recognize his face, I think. How can I search and retrieve this info…image search for Pinterest?

(They aren't objectionable, I just don't want all of this "stuff" there.   I want a cleaner board.  Is there a way to "Unfollow" people until I can get a handle on how this works and just create my boards? Thanks.

We’re looking at it specifically because we have an interest in any security issues it has. (I haven’t looked at it at all myself, so can’t comment on specifics.)

A point worth making, but it’s _never_ safe to assume that a social media site doesn’t lay claim to your content. Effectively, your data is their commodity, and that’s usually reflected in the EULA.

This is so amazing, but no one seems to know it.  See the recent article in the Boston Business Journal.
