I have a Myspace and a Twitter account, which I don't use. I only got the Myspace so I could leave a response on a friends page. As for Twitter... actually, I really don't know why I opened that one :)

Ack! I refuse to Twitter! It just seems so...trendy. I don't know. Twitter just bugs me. (Have you ever read Feed, by MT Anderson??)

Can't say as I have. What's it about?

Taken from the Amazon review:
This brilliantly ironic satire is set in a future world where television and computers are connected directly into people's brains when they are babies. The result is a chillingly recognizable consumer society where empty-headed kids are driven by fashion and shopping and the avid pursuit of silly entertainment--even on trips to Mars and the moon--and by constant customized murmurs in their brains of encouragement to buy, buy, buy.

It's excellent, and frightening, and all too close to being REAL. It's YA, but it's definitely a worthy read.

Sounds like something out of a Doctor Who episode :)
