It is amazing to me how many people use this slow and decrepit website to keep up with friends. A while back when I first saw this site I thought it was interesting but not enough for me to want to keep up with it. I already had my online journal since 2000 working and was upgrading to WordPress on my server. I see the draw in the site as it seems to make it easier for “friends” to keep up with you.

However my intent has always been that these same friends should keep up with you anyway WITHOUT Facebook. Why did it take a social-site for you to become social. My wife will tell you I am the most unsociable person you will meet. I beg to differ a bit as I have friends that I talk to all the time. I see them at church, I go to lunch with them, talk to them on the phone, etc. I don’t find it necessary to inject myself into their daily activities unless necessary.

Maybe I am at the early stages of becoming a curmudgeon but I’ve used the Internet for over 10 years now and working in the industry for over 6 years I see the bad side of the internet. I see the results of customers activities when a subpoena comes across my desk. I’ve seen the results of bad people taking advantage of good folks via the Internet and especially in these “social-sites!”

As capricious as I am I’ve decided to join you crazy folks instead and I am willing to impart to anyone who asks, my experience of the WWW. Feel free to call on me anytime via email, text me or call me. If you don’t have my number email me. I may not be able to answer every question but I can lead you in the right direction.

Thankfully Facebook has an RSS feed reader so I only have to update my blog and Facebook will pull from it. Here we go…….
