More social networking fun with Facebook, and What I Dun This Crimbo...

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

I've just been pressured into signing up for a facebook account. I'm trying to figure out if I can add more than one e-mail address to the same account as I've had a few invites to a few different e-mail addresses, and until now I've avoided signing up thanks to the "MySpace effect" (or, for the uninitiated, "let's all get ourselves a free but really crap-looking* webpage with Rupert Murdoch's advertising all over it which forces everyone in the world to register for an account just so they can read my really boring blog entries and find out just what a sad-case I am**").

* Yes, I know some MySpace pages look very pretty, but they're definitely in the minority.

** ... and yes, I've spotted the irony in that statement, coming from someone who writes a blog about his work pushing pixels around a website without seeming to actually *do* anything at all. Ever...

So, anyway, I have a Facebook account. Now all I have to do is figure out how, if it's at all possible, we can (a) integrate it into peoples' profiles (have a "my Facebook name" field? An optional "my latest Facebook news" feed on peoples' profile pages? Or...?), and (b) (assuming it turns out to be worth the hype, which it might just be...), to find a way of dropping some hints into UPSU.net about how cool it is, especially since it's aimed squarely at the more transient student communities (and rightly so).
