Facebook is kaput

I just deactivated my facebook account. Read an article from the Guardian reprinted by the Sunday Star Times about the background to the site and its founders. The thesis was that it is all very sinister and libertarian (Left and right at the same time? - isn't sinistre Italian for left?). All that is all well and good. The article didn't really chime with my views. Turning off my account was simply a product of finding the whole thing a little lame - as reported earlier in the week.

Today I have been trying to finish reading the excellent Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones. The story takes a long time to get cracking but I can tell you, with fifteen pages to go it is a cracking read. I can recommend it to you with complete confidence.
