Watch Out Boys! Girls Do Social Networking Best!

Nice piece yesterday in the Sunday Times showing how the internet is no longer just the place for spotty male geeks to gather. Not that that stereotype is necessarily warranted, but check out how Libby Purves referred to my blog a few months back!!!
