Myspace… Facebook… right.

I hear these things are totally sweet. They’re cool or something. I don’t get it.

Call me old fashioned, but I just like finding people in the real world. Every one of my best friends I’ve met because I just happened to be somewhere (that’s not my house) at the same time as somebody else. I guess I’m also a bit paranoid about putting too much personal info on the internet in one convenient location.

Maybe I’m just jealous or something. Nowadays you can Google search for people with your interests. To me, it takes the fun out. There’s nothing quite like talking to somebody you’ve never met, and finding out that you both like some random, short-lived scifi show.

The fact is, at any given time, you’ve got at least three things in common with the person you’re standing next to in the elevator. And one of those things is that neither of you will say ‘hi’ first.

And what’s with these minors drinking and then posting pictures of themselves drunk? You might think that you’re lost in a sea of information, but it’s amazing what a search box can find you.

Anyway, I think I’m cool with not getting it. I don’t, and I’m pretty sure I don’t want to.
