Last night I was loitering around Facebook while fretting over problems with Bigmouthery's new layout (which I haven't decided on yet). I'd spent no time there since their big timeline rollout a few days ago so wanted to see the changes. Didn't notice many changes, couldn't find a timeline, was informed by a little note that the changes are coming in early October. Then I read a post by friend, Facebook friend and all-round social networkista Kate Foy mentioning a 'back door'. Then I found, via this story at TechCrunch, that back door is 'developer status'.
In short, if you get developer status, you can get Timeline. And once you have timeline, you are ready to start sucking down the fizzy, scrapbook-style goodness of your entire Facebook existence RIGHT NOW! Wanna do it? Course you do!
