Anyway, earlier in the week marlowe1 ran me to ground and invited me to friend his facebook, or whatever the hell it's called. Which I happily did.
Now, I'm not wise in the ways of facebook, so I thought I ought to poke around in it and see what it can do, and I just clicked on the `home' tab and scrolled down a bit and I found an entry which reads `popular posted items in the London network.' I presume (and I hope Tim will correct me if I'm wrong) these are news stories posted on facebook by London users.
Okay. Top item is `Bike Sex Man Placed On Probation.' Second place is `Cat's Daily Routine Baffles Owner.' Third place is `Man Hurt Using Gun To Change Tyre.'
Sharp-eyed villagers might recognise items one and two. And I wrote a story for the paper about item three.
I'm sorry, I just find that the merest little bit spooky.
I have a MySpace page as well, but that just scares me.
