    Normally your brain is running an trillions of flops, amazingly decoding mulitple streams in a complex and ever-changing environment, and you don't feel a thing. However every now and again you hit a sentence like this:

    "Web 2.0 social software has created conflicting generational user expectations"

    There's almost a pain in your head as the logic simply fails to provide any traction and your brain cells spin desperately.

    The people who write this nonsense are clever. They know what they're doing. I think we should form a vigilante gang - like the people who blow up speed cameras - and take out PR departments from Oracle etc into the car park...... and give them a good kicking...

    Okay, I know this is feeding the trolls, but has amanfromMars suddenly entered puberty on that last one. It's never wandered off in that direction before.
