ABSTRACT
The article presents humorous developments related to the information technology industry sent by readers of this journal. The web site hatebook, Hatebook.com, which describes itself as an anti-social utility that connects users with the people they hate, has been launched. Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), Great Britain's office for eavesdropping spies, is placing recruitment advertisements in computer games. A survey commissioned by Mimecast, a firm which sells web-based e-mail, found that 63% of IT managers in Great Britain have more than one e-mail system within their company, presumably one for work and the other for seeing if they have received any new Hatebook enemy requests or responses to their CVs.
