Then I had to link them.
*two or three sighs*
I like Facebook because it’s blatantly in-your-face about the things you can do with it. I like the passive attitude it allows me to take: do I feel like being friends with this person or not? Do I want to join this group? Maybe I’ll just let these things sit in the sidebar for another week before I give them any serious contemplation.
I don’t like Myspace. Think I might get rid of it. It seems to lack the finesse of Facebook, and actually requires you to have a social life before you use it. If I had a social life, I wouldn’t need Myspace.
Twitter promises to be fun. I like being able to tell people what to do in one line; very efficient; wonder if I can get my kids and my sisters to join Twitter….
I remember the battle I had with my parents when they wanted me to leave the Dark Ages and get a tape deck rather than just listening to records. Eventually, they bribed me with my own little ghetto blaster (guess that would have made it a “ghetto vibrator”) and a cassette of Stan Rogers’ From Fresh Water. They also gave me one of Queen’s albums on cassette, but I already had all those on vinyl and saw no need to be dragged into unnecessary use of modern technology.
Now, I spend my days on a computer, can do some awesome things with a Powerpoint slide, and am attempting to peddle my literary wares on the Interwebz.
Dear Mr. Ludd is just spinning, I’m sure.
