A Demos report on social networking commissioned by Orange has reached the unlikely conclusion that social networks provide the best hope for companies in the economic downturn. The report interviewed workers from six companies - including Orange but not limited to those in the IT sector - about how professionals are using …
Frauds interview frauds, agree fraud is good
Demos interviewed a company called Imaginatik.
"Imaginatik provides unique enterprise software, processes and insights to tap into the Collective Genius for collaborative innovation and problem solving "
One bunch of fraudulent New Age nutters interviews another. One wants to hear that fraudulent New Age nuttery is important. The other sells fraudulent New Age nuttery and tells them that yes, it is important.
Together they conclude that fraudulent New Age nuttery is very important indeed - and hold a press conference.

Please, for the love of FSM, no. Just..... no. I have trouble enough dealing with people around me talking about how they talked to each other on that thing the evening before. Every day. They don't seem to have realised that tFSM invented pubs for a reason.
"I sent a ninja after you last night! *tee hee*"
"Yeah, and I poked you when I saw it! *tee hee*"
"Did you see Bob's Wall?? *tee hee*"
Argh. It makes me reach for the bottle of medicine in my bottom drawer, just thinking about it.
Oh Please .......
... social networking will continue when the power dies because we can't afford to pay !

Damn you el Reg, and damn the horse you rode in on
maintain two IM accounts
The reason i left FB was exactly because friends and work colleagues could mix... i.e. work people could see photos posted by friend of me when i was out and about being drunk or whatever.
Work is where i am professional and outside work i am not.
I would love to be able to maintain two IM accounts but with having Skype, MSN etc all depending on what my current employer wants makes that impossible and i have to keep deleting and blocking old contacts at companies i no longer work for, just so they dont bug me about stuff when i am not working for them.
This report has more flaws than an Escher drawing.

Now they say social networking is the future. Great vision guys.
The futures clouded.....
