Eric Rice: ReTweet: jmalthus @spin Yes! Web2.0 is about social media, and guess what people like to be social about? Themselves. Social Narcissism

This is the first ever retweet witnessed by @ruperthowe between two of his friends @ericrice and @jmalthus on 18 April 2007. The following day @jmalthus died in a car accident. Rupert Howe, Eric Rice and Jesse's father Jerome Higgenbotham tell @jenntracey what they remember.
