It has been a really long time since I have written anything here, about 7 weeks, almost an eternity in blog-years. In fact according to all of the established blogging metrics, this blog is dead, it is no-more, it has ceased-to-be...but it really isn't...I have just been somewhere else.
Social Networking is apparently the thing to do nowadays. I have been hanging out on a platform called Twitter which is a micro-blogging platform. You can key in a little comment, random thought, link to a blog post or whatever, it just needs to be less than 140 keystrokes.
For me this begs a question. Am I Social enough for Social Networking? Do I really want to let people know when I am feeling grouchy, sick, bored, creating a powerpoint, on a conference call, plane, picking lint out of...whatever? At least with a blog entry, the theory is that you have something reasonably substantial to write about. But with something like Twitter (or the other mblog platforms), the very idea seems to lower the bar almost to the level of idle chit chat, all with the comfort of not actually having to have the conversation.
Not sure about this Social Networking malarci...but until I figure it out, I'll see you on Twitter or here, but a little more often.
