book in ya face


okay, i signed up fo facebook out of curiosity - and now i'm getting a million (well not really, but too many anyway) emails notifying me of activity that's going on in there.

while there are obviously many benefits to social networking, where is the criticism? or at least critical analysis of its impact??

so far it's a time-sucking device - like i needed another...
i originally started this blog (before the 2005 vital signs conference) as a means to criticise the whole blogging phenomenon - you can't really talk about what you don't know, right!?! of course, somehow my naïveté lead me to keep it up.

i do actually enjoy seeing ppl in the flesh, not just sitting in bed with a laptop
(govinda - you have a lot to answer for)

11/08/2007: let me take some of that back... there is some discussion of this going on thru fibreculture at the moment, see:
