Podcast PDFs from 38 Mintues site

This site is a fantastic resource for all the geek chat I need :) I'm finding so much textual that is incredibly useful - not just the networking opportunities. Just a suggestion, but if some of the text content could be produced into a pdf file that was pushed down an RSS feed, it would mean this content could be read when offline, or even printed off.

Channel4's The Family

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml?xml=/arts/2008/09/17/nosplit/bvtvwatson17.xml - If you haven't already seen this article, it's a good read.



Ok, it's easy to take pot-shots at Channel4's new show The Family, in the wake of mass criticism of the Big Brother legacy.

Question: is it ok that other countries have made their own version of facebook?

This has been a highly debated topic in our office, check out the Russian social networking site, which is perhaps taking it a bit too far as their site is almost identical to facebook, but should they be allowed to do this?



I know people are saying that these sites are clones and therefore shouldn't be allowed, but then surely we would then need to know who owns the idea of Social Networking?
