The Economist and Kobe Beef

We were mentioned in an article about Social Network in the Economist!

The article can be found here.

Here’s the relevant passage in case you don’t want to read the article.

“…the future of social networking will not be one big social graph but instead myriad small communities on the internet to replicate the millions that exist offline. No single company, therefore, can capture the social graph. Ning, a fast-growing company with offices directly across the street from Facebook in Palo Alto, is built around this idea. It lets users build their own social networks for each circle of friends.”

The Mister is a big Economist fan. I ,on the other hand, read one cover to cover once, but it was because there was nothing else to read and the net connection was down. He’s the smart one in the Johnson family.

What does this all have to do with Kobe Beef?

Well, after work a few co workers and I went to Shabuway in Mountain View to eat some Kobe beef hot pot style. OMG, it was so good. There were some veggies but the star of the show was the Kobe. It’s the best beef I ever had and I really hand a good time hanging out with my co workers outside of work.

Excellent day!
