Walking down the never-ending main street, we think we’re in Disneyland on our way to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Flanked by buildings on either side, a thin, paved black concrete path cuts through a neatly manicured lawn. A BBQ shack appears in the distance and the smell wafts down the walkway. The fog begins to recede while sun rays stream through a gap in the clouds. The occasional biker passes by on a dark red bicycle wearing board shorts and a t-shirt. It feels like an unusually quiet day on the Main Street at the theme park, and coupled with California mist, one wouldn't be faulted for confusion. But the "like" button painted on a sign outside tells the true story: Welcome to Facebook.
