Happy New Year!

It'd be wrong of me not to post something to mark the new year. Wouldn't it Martin? Oh, it's also our two year anniversary. Happy New Year M-Rat!

Dr. Pop

Anyone for some Dr. Pop?
Dr. Pop: "Got a taste for it". Why is this funny? Who knows. Maybe it's the stark contrast between the term doctor - one who tries to maintain the health of the population (but who generally just ends up administering drugs) - and pop, something that in excess probably contributes to the disease of the nation. Or maybe it's just the the kitsch foreign supermarket brand title? Well it was spotted in Morrisons!

Why Twitter Beats Facebook

Twitter vs. FacebookWeb 2.0 just became the newest word in the dictionary.

Excellent. Web 3.0 is still being considered, you know - Semantic Web and all that - and yet Web 2.0 (a concept some several hundred years old) has only just poked its nose into the dictionary!

Anyway, I was talking to a friend about this today, so naturally was on the look out for any news about it. The story made me realise how shit Facebook is for mass broadcast, social-media style.

This is because you can't refer to other people in your updates (as with Twitter's @ notation). On Facebook, you can refer to friends in notes, or by tagging them in an image, but not in updates.

C'mon Facebook, this is a big limiter of Facebook's potential as far as I am concerned. Twitter for the win!
