i may not be the most prolific blogger or the funniest person on the web or the most informative, but because of facebook, twitter and my persistent friends i am becoming a new communicator. i admit, i'm bad about making phone calls to my friends and family... it sometimes takes me a while to return personal emails... hey - i'm a busy person - as far as you know. but now with facebook, twitter and other social sites i feel more connected. i'm not sure when i exactly began to feel this way... but now i'm assimilated into the new media. soon, within the year in fact, i can join the wave.
what's the wave, you ask? its a new communications vehicle from google - the search engine people. the wave will be a hosted conversation/live typing tool/add people as you go instant message. all waves will start at the google "hub". once you join the conversation wave you can add comments, just read along or start your own new wave of thought (but you don't need to get the flock of seagulls haircut). google plans on being your common hub for the other social sites you belong to - just to keep it convenient. now i'm no techno geek, so i don't quite understand how it will all work.... come to think of it, neither does google at this point.
now i'm not sure if i want google to have access to all my social activities on the web. i would like a bit of privacy - even if its just in my imagination. but i am intrigued.
