Social media, what’s that all about then? I want to be interested in Pinterest but, ironically, I really can’t get enthusiastic about it. I might go big on it a some point, but at the moment it’s just not blowing my skirt up.
However, the humble beer mat must be one of the earliest forms of social media, and that’s really working for me. Who hasn’t stripped one to write down a phone number, or laid out ranks and files of them in order to critique the military strategy of Agincourt, or sketched out a design for perpetual motion?
Well maybe that’s just me, but you can’t deny the democratising liberation of the sub-pint canvas that is the beer mat. Spoiling it enhances it. Which is nice.
