Facebook and Rowing

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, announced the other day that Facebook now has an incredible 500,000,000 members. On 1 October this year a film, The Social Network, about the creation of Facebook is going to open at the movie theatres in the States. The twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, who both rowed for the Dark Blues in The Boat Race earlier this spring and were ‘involved’ in the creation of Facebook when they were studying and rowing at Harvard, are also featured in The Social Network. The trailer for the movie has been released and of course it shows a couple of seconds of rowing.

And, no, I am not on Facebook. Running this blog keeps me busy enough…
