I signed up for Facebook, not sure what to expect. I had long ago decided there was no way I was going to join MySpace. Still, I have decided I want to be a greater presence on the web, mostly as a way of self promotion. And because it keeps me off the streets.
The first thing I noted about Facebook was that it tried to find ways for you to interact with people, whether through different gaming activity, or participating in applets that shared information about film interests or books, or ...well just about anything. I've actually enjoyed it. Plus, I've made some friends and reconnected with others. For instance, one gentleman living in California contacted me. He and I went to high school together. Another lifetime. Funny how a name and a face, even one subject to thirty years of change, can spark a rush of memories. They say you live through other peoples' memories of you.
If any of you want to visit me there, just follow this link: facebook Sign up, put me on a friends' list, play a few games with me, write on my wall...whatever. I think the next thing I'll do it put a second blog up on wordpress. Maybe I'll use that site to launch my podcasts.
