Thai bites

So now Man City look to have a new owner and a new manager. Of course it's not as simple as that because this is Manchester City but...........

I've not been a fan of Sven in the England job but he has a great record in club management and the new owner has said there will be money for two strikers, two midfielders and a keeper - £50M? Of course the new owner (assuming he doesn't get banged up before the paperwork i sorted) is now known as "Frank" for obvious reasons.

Social networking

One of the things I've been dipping my toe in is social networking, Rheingold said in "Smart Mobs" that social networking would be the next killer app and it looks as though Facebook is the flavour riding the crest of that wave just now. Tony Hirst suggests that it might begin to look like a VLE and Martin Weller looks at what opening up the Facebook API might mean in the longer term. Anyways - I'm all Facebooked up and fascinated at the number of folk who have got themselves onto it.
