Interesting quote from that article:
"For Thiel, PayPal was all about freedom: it would enable people to skirt currency controls and move money around the globe."So, what, does that mean that Thiel set up PayPal as a means to help money laundering or something? ;)
I don't know what all the fuss is about...after all, who said that all one's information on facebook is accurate? I have plenty of friends who set their date of birth on fb to January 1, 1970 -- yes, they're all UNIX-heads :) That article though interesting seems to be another manifestation of the "the CIA/NSA/vast right-wing conspiracy is out to get us all!!!!!" scaremongering that has long followed Microsoft* and Google**.
