Resistance is Futile

I've never had in interest in the technological tools of social networking. Sure, I remember when MySpace came out, before it exploded into the cultural ubiquity that it is today. But I didn't really have a use for it. I already live a relatively public existence, or at least a portion of me does. I also write a blog, which allows me to mumble about whatever I feel like mumbling about, and I now have a website, in which I enunciate rather more clearly. I am very easy to locate, and highly Googleable. That, I figure, ought to be enough.

Unfortunately, in the modern world this stuff tends to creep up on you. First it was LinkedIn—at least that's obviously professionally-oriented. Later, it was Twitter. Yesterday, I made my dormant Facebook account public for the first time ever, and I woke up this morning to a bunch of new friends. And somehow that made me happy. Sigh. I suppose it's time to finally admit that I have indeed been assimilated.

Its about time! You can justify it by saying "its a great way to keep in touch with all your professional wine contacts".
I just admit to myself that I love the self indulgence and slightly voyeuristic aspect of it :)
