I got a message from Facebook today. Someone indicated I am “hot” in one of those “Compare” applications. I accepted this word graciously offered to me and clung to it like a cat pouncing a mouse. Facebook has been interesting to explore. MySpace has a cluttered, chaotic user interface that confuses the hell out of me. Facebook is organized and loaded with more ways to connect with and keep track of friends. Not a day goes by where someone isRead more…

I caved. I knew I would, once I read Jennifer Laycock’s series, From Twits to Tweeple, Why I Embraced Twitter and You Should Too. Anything that sidetracks me from work is a threat in my book. However, Twitter isn’t so bad. The final push for me was that I miss my friends. Travel for me this year is all up in the air. There’s a lot going on at home with my college bound daughter and highly involved sports andRead more…

I was young the day John F. Kennedy was killed but I knew the world had changed. I remember my college house mates and I huddled in shock the day John Lennon was shot and killed. Maybe it was the influence of those two tragic events because on the very day I first saw the Internet I thought to myself, “This can help create peace (cre8pc).” Next year Cre8asiteforums will be 10 years old for me. For most everyone elseRead more…

Part of me would like to get hysterical over the news that a new search engine wants to index the names of every single person on the planet. The idea that anyone can locate and learn about me at the push of a button freaks me out. Wait a minute. If you’re reading this, you just did. What is the reasoning for making every person on the planet with a name available for search on the Internet? Who cares? WithRead more…
