so while i was in isolate and had no internet, things changed! I return to find once thronging forums dead, msn contacts gone, and various websites just no longer updated. Strange as if everyone i’d known had gone.
Many people had decided to ‘meme’ and drift into blog-worlds, which is fine and i do the same, and i really quite like wordpress so ……
Then the utter and total lack of emails seemed very bizzare indeed, almost as if some great plague had taken all the people i ever knew and took away their internet accesses.
Forums you could hardly leave for a day as the replies and banter would leave you on catch-up pages down the list. these forums just ‘nothing’ the odd lost soul in what seems to now be a very vacant WWW-land. where the fuck did everyone go?
I found my dearest and oldest net-buddy (chanda) and she’d gone over to myspace.com. I joined and saw its benefits, no longer do you email out pictures and updates you post them on your social spaces. Great idea, i do the same, but to a lesser audience. I’ve since joined facebook.com and this is faster and smoother than myspace, but I dont know anyone there so ……. i got an account anyway.
drifting as I was finding where everyone had gone (still cannot find many people, but then hey life goes on), i discovered the socially defective 🙂 have moved into social housing schemes….. networks! twitter.com was another and this is slightly confusing, its so easy and fast, you just add short sentence updates/links that your followers pick up on or and reply to. Twitter is another account i have …. in case i find someone i know. ning.com I then sniffed out allows you to make your own socially defective networks 🙂 I have created one on gardens that has, like the others, yet managed to lure any interest.
So there I must adjust my internet browsing and habits, nothing much arrives in the email anylonger, except the usual fucking junk for viagra and penis enlargements….. or casino online etc. I have joined three networks and created one, but remain the ‘billy no mates’ with a friend count of ONE (across all).
