My last blog entry was probably the craziest thing I ever posted online and after reading it to my best friend Marcie (who does not do computers, not to mention Facebook) she told me to pull it. I’m not deleting it but I did edit it. I don’t do that very often because it feels like cheating. I didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings or sound like a jaded old woman – but I think that’s exactly what it conveyed.
I need to take my own advice and relax.
I am old enough to remember when the Internet was new and it was called “BITNET” (Because It’s Time Network – how quaint) and for several years people in education and government were about the only people on it. Then came AOL and bunch of other commercial services and suddenly the whole unwashed mass of humanity were doing email. I am sure the young people who were the pioneers of Facebook are jaded knowing that their moms and grandfathers and the local grocery store now have a Facebook page.
Marcie, when you have a Facebook page I will know for sure that Facebook has become – as they love to say – “ubiquitous”
