The Drill Down 001 – Social Networks

Welcome listeners to this, our first episode in what we hope will become one of your regular favorite podcasts. On this week’s show, Andrew Sorcini, Muhammad Saleem, and Reg ‘Zaibatsu’ discuss the value of social networking sites, Facebook in particular. Later in the show we discuss a few of our favorite links, “Beyond Social Networking”– a PC Magazine article, Ask.com’s new Eraser feature, and an article in Wired Magazine about an FBI sting involving spyware placed on a teenage suspects computer.

Please feel free to let us know if you have any comments, suggestions or ideas for upcoming topics. We’d love to hear from you.
