I was interested to read Dare Obasanjo's opinions on Why Facebook is Bigger Than Blogging
. I'm not convinced. I think that the two forms of communication are complementary rather than competitive. Recent posts over on the BBC' news site - BBC NEWS | Technology | How to make friends on Facebook
and BBC NEWS | Technology | Facing up to Facebook fears
tipped me over the edge and I joined Facebook about a week ago - Facebook | Duncan Smeed
- and I'm probably the oldest codger on it!
I'm interested in reconnecting with as many of my old students as possible as I'm hoping to set up an Alumni Association for Strathclyde CS graduates. So, if any of my old students are reading this and haven't yet joined my circle of 'friends' over on Facebook I'd be delighted to welcome you there. If nothing else you'll get a chuckle from the 'CAD' caricature that one of the CADet teams drew up some years ago ;-) You may even hook up with some of your old pals that have already befriended me!
