Scruples crumble


We held out as long as we could, but there was no way around it, and we’ve had to succumb: we’ve made a Facebook page.

Note that this does not mean in the least that we like or approve of Facebook; we don’t. It annoys us just as much as it ever did, as witness the fact that we can’t even figure out the URL of the page we’ve made because it seems to vary every time we click something. But this is the future, and just as there’s no point trying to walk somewhere when everyone else is in a flying car, or eating an old-fashioned bacon sandwich when everyone else is subsisting on a diet of three food pills a day, so there’s no point in pretending that everyone in the entire world isn’t going to be glued to Facebook within the next year or so.

So there you go.

But we hope this page will remain our primary web presence and the place where our loyal, adoring fans (ahem!) will continue to come to first for our quotes, notes, news and views.

    I fully sympathise; you’ve got to play the game and Facebook is simply to big to ignore. Unfortunately, the days when a band’s political outlook are seemingly long-gone, and people are in general very unaware politically with regards to web issues. Yet consider how young the web is, how recently social networking became a phenomenon; it will take time for people to realise the value in privacy, the value in owning one’s data and how to organise without needing a big US corporation to run their social networks.

    Myself, I’ll always stick to the bacon, come what may.

    Best Wishes,
