furthur to WA’s post of yesterday, Metroblogging Mumbai are still covering the 8 bombimgs in Indias biggest City.

On Behalf of everybody at Metroblogging London I offer offer our Condolences and Deepest sympathies to our sister site and everyone affected by this pointless tragedy.

the information numbers for hospitals and locationg people can be found here.


Being a total Myspace Junkie for the last two years or so, I was very very excited to hear that Metroblogging now has its very own Myspace Profile!

Myspace seems to have popped out of nowhere over the last couple of months and it seems everybody that is everybody is getting their own (not so) private peice of HTML heaven.

Even the Geoff Show has a space, and recently Ive had a hell of a lot of fun in the London Group (not for the faint hearted).

Apart from being the obvious ultimate popularity competition, the place is a cool little resource for finding cheap and free gigs, networking and finding online buddies. I do warn anyone that hasnt been there yet – it is HIGHLY addictive.

but if you happen to be there, add us and while your at it add me too, Im collecting friends!!!
