Facebook Catches 3 Criminals from Around the World

People often criticize social media and the web in general, but here is proof that the internet, and specifically Facebook, is making the world a better place…

1. Thief Caught Leaving Facebook Open: Some idiot in Pennsylvania logs into Facebook while in the middle of a robbery and forgets to log out.  (Which leaves me wondering–why not just take the computer?)

2. Facebook Foils Bike Thief: An 11-year-old kid in New York get his bike stolen and turns his city into a giant neighborhood watch via Facebook and gets his bike back.

3. Police Ask Facebook Fans to Identify a Thief: Some inept burglar takes his mask off during a heist and police in New Zealand catch him by posting his face all over Facebook.

Which just goes to show you, when used correctly, this inter-web thingy can be really cool.

Twitter…I’ve Been Assimilated

So when Twitter first came out, I was like, “Yeah!  I have to get on that.”  Then everyone started tweeting, and I was like, “Nah, I don’t want to do it now that everyone is doing it.” 

But then the peer pressure got to me.  So, what I’m trying to say is that I’m now on Twitter.  In my usual semi-literary/semi-literate style, I’ve signed up under the name MeWriteWords.  Feel free to cyberstalk me.

Saving the World, One Blog at a Time

What is ozone abuse?  I have no clue, but maybe I’ll find out on September 27th, 2007, when bloggers are challenged by blogcatalog.com to blog about abuse (you choose which kind).  In addition, copywriteink.com is sponsoring a contest where you can win prizes and have a donation made to charity in your name when you participate.  Take part in history, mark your calendar, blog to change the world.

Also, some cellphone blogger called Nine made these graphics.  Nice job.
