'with friends like these' was a great article, thanks for that marc.  
whene facebook first surfaced in my life last year i noticed that it  
smelled a bit off. although i couldn't put my finger on quite why i  
just suspected there was something amiss there. so i put it  
permanently on the backburner, for which i was once memorably branded  
a 'sweet old hippy' by a colleague

in stark contrast i signed up to netbehaviours ning account five  
minutes after reading about it. i'm enormously busy with work right  
now but im hoping it might lead to someinteresting collaboration in  
the future.  :)
