On occassion, I get asked this same question, and, despite my consistant and well reasoned response, I get the same blank stare of disbelief from the questioner:

The Q: So, are you on Myspace/Facebook/Twitter/ etc..... ?

My A: No.

....!?!?!

"But, who, what, huh? How can you not be on Myspace/Facebook/Twitter/ etc... ?"

Simple: I don't want to be.

"But.... how do you meet new people and network and blah blah blahitty blah blah...???

Um... I leave my house. ;-)

Now, mind you, I'm not here, truthfully, to knock these services... of those who use them...

But seriously... when did "Tweeting" that you just sctratched yourself in public become the norm for "Social Networking"?

I'm a member of a little group called BNI (Google it if you must)... It's a work thing, and it requires me to get up boo-ass early every Friday, drive out, and actually meet... in person.... with a bunch of other buisness folks, and actually talk to one another...

That... my friends... is NETWORKING...

As opposed to:


(Click on it, and zoom in... FOD shrank it....)

Besides... at least by meeting folks in person... you know how creepy I... I mean... "they" are... as opposed to:



(Again, click and zoom... hee hee... "possibly a ninja"...)

And don't even get me going on how big a waste of time I view Twitter as.... I mean, for the love of God... my life is not so interesting that anyone needs constant updates... what am I gonna "tweet"? "Ordering another beer"..... "Drinking that beer".... "Must go deposit that beer"....

Think I'm crazy... watch this:

You see.... I'm not nuts.... I'm the one not bound by some vague attempt at having an online social life that really just becomes an untameable addiction...

Now, if you'll excuse me... it's been 10 minutes since I checked my Newsfeed...

Wait a sec....

CRAP!!!
