what are we doing? this facebook thing, the social networking, twittering, etc? what is it we’re doing? i see some validity to the technology and believe me, i love it. but when do you use it? at work. at home. at times when your attention is most required away from said technology.
so, our economy is tanking, people’s livelihood is threatened by layoffs, our children are to be saddled with ridiculous debt and the world economy is suffering worse than in most of our recent history and all we can do in response to it is micro blog and make silly links with people from our distant past? are we that elitist? don’t we see what a huge middle finger that is to the people suffering?
i’m logging off. my time is needed elsewhere. work needs my attention. god forbid i get fired for goofing off on facebook during this economy. my wife needs my attention. yeah, it’s funny that we both sit on the couch at night on our respective laptops browsing our communities, but what life is that? my son needs my attention, not a father distracted by checking peoples status on his iphone. i’m going to take that time and apply it to something productive and stop flipping the bird to the rest of the world.
i hope you do, too.

i’m keeping the blog, you silly people. i’ll keep up with my rss feeds, too. that’s like reading the morning paper for me. duh.
